At The Geldner Center, plastic surgeons Dr. Peter D. Geldner and Dr. Lawrence H. Iteld renovate façades with a bouquet of reconstructive procedures and noninvasive cosmetic tweaks. Named one of the nation's Top Doctors by US News & World Report, Dr. Geldner uses advanced medical technology—including Palomar and Sciton lasers—to help clients look and feel better, whether through face-lifts, eyelid lifts, nose reshaping, or chin augmentation. Lead aesthetician Deanna Stellato, one of four licensed aestheticians on staff, performs skin-renewing chemical peels, which exfoliate the skin and boost its ability to hold moisture while reducing the appearance of fine lines. Clients may also opt to pamper their countenances with classic facials, microdermabrasion, and gentle butterfly kisses from reflections.
Board-certified surgeon Michael Horn helps boost patients' confidence with cosmetic treatments that range from surgical face-lifts and rhinoplasty to Botox injections and extreme trampolining. His time outside the office is spent studying his craft at national meetings or imparting wisdom to other surgeons as a frequent lecturer on plastic surgery. In patients' rooms, his focus rests solely on the person in front of him, as he listens to their cosmetic goals and discusses their treatment options.
The aestheticians at Natural Beauty Med Spa work their skincare wonders under the guidance of Dr. Irvin Wiesman, a board-certified plastic surgeon and graduate of UIC’s medical school. He and his experienced crew rejuvenate faces with laser resurfacing treatments that combat acne scars, brown spots, and fine lines, and call upon fillers and injections to relax scowl muscles or plump up lips in preparation for becoming a kissing-booth champion. Their menu of noninvasive high-tech treatments also includes cellulite treatments, spider vein treatments, and laser hair removal.
Dr.Mark Mass use his considerable medical and technological might to help erase the unerasable. Harnessing the power of RevLite SI lasers, he carefully target the pigment deposits in unwanted artwork, breaking them up so that the body can discard them naturally. A cooling device helps to ease or prevent discomfort throughout the procedures, whereas detailed aftercare instructions make scarring unlikely and help clients convince rejected tattoos not to seek revenge. The clinic also deploys its laser fleet in the spirit of generosity: Its Dots Program helps cancer survivors remove radiation tattoos after treatment has concluded.
At Plastic Surgery Center, P.C., board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen E. Zucker and his skilled team call upon years of experience and ongoing education to refresh the way clients look and feel. Customized massages tackle the tension and muscle lumps lying beneath the skin, as well as evaporate the stress that clouds minds and causes clients to eat entire loaves of meat in single sittings. Each staffer holds certification in Phytomer Body Care techniques and applies varying pressure and strokes throughout 90-minute procedures based on their clients' requests.
With a history stretching back nearly 30 years, Tan City of Valpo prides itself on its well-trained team. Techs assist guests with all their needs, from choosing between UV and spray tanning to picking the best lotion and accelerator, and their clean bronzing studio offers a variety of each. Besides imbuing skin with golden hues, they also provide teeth whitening, using their own Maxx White system.
Dr. Kapers and the staff at Creating Smiles, PC believe that a visit to the dentist doesn't have to be scary or painful. Their modern dental equipment is less invasive and gentler than the stereotypical tools. Both offices are equipped with digital x-rays that minimize radiation exposure. Intraoral cameras show patients what's going on inside their mouths, and full sedation is an option for patients who don't want to think about having a mouth at all. Dr. Kapers' surgical techniques are also gentler; air abrasion cleans cavities of decaying enamel without the sound and vibration of the drill.
