Staffed by a team of nine eye doctors and surgeons, Tidewater Eye Center has racked up recognition in three categories from HamptonRoads.com's Best of Hampton Roads, including Best Health Care Provider and Best Place for Laser Vision Correction. Patients can receive a variety of optometry services at each of the clinic’s three locations, including basic eye exams; treatments for glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration; and even aesthetic procedures, including eyelid surgery. Yet, the center’s most popular treatment is blade-free LASIK eye surgery, which eliminates the need for lenses and soda-bottle monocles in as little as 15 minutes.
Within Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's Norfolk location, The Downtown Spa & Laser Center pairs the results-oriented approach of a medical facility with the relaxing amenities of a spa. Flickering candles gently illuminate the treatment rooms, where a soundtrack of natural harmonies surrounds patients with the soothing noise of rain falling or a park ranger learning to read. In the chambers, specialists wield laser-emitting devices designed to combat the appearance of unwanted hairs, spider veins, and wrinkles. With at least one aesthetician always on site, the center's staff also uses medical-grade skincare treatments to do everything from calming acne outbreaks to exfoliating dead skin cells.
Modern medical procedures have the ability to drastically alter a person's appearance. However, this isn't the goal at The Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery. Rather than swap each visitor's entire head with a mannequin's, Dr. Kyle Choe?a facial plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery who exclusively specializes in facial procedures?offers a variety of surgical and nonsurgical options intended to help patients achieve natural-looking results.
In addition to procedures that restructure faces from the inside out, The Choe Center also provides noninvasive and minimally invasive alternatives that focus on exteriors. Classic skincare treatments, including cleansing facials and exfoliating chemical peels, purify pores and address blemishes. Advanced technology also lends a laser-filled hand?the Cutera Pearl cosmetic laser aims to rejuvenate complexions, while the LipoSonix ultrasonic body-contouring system helps slim waistlines and shrink shadows.
