In her Today's Chicago Woman blog, Living Well and Beautifully, Tiffani Kim shares her thoughts on eating well, maintaining healthy skin, and dealing with stress. At her River North medical spa, open since 1998, she transforms these thoughts into action. A true renaissance woman, she?s also a fashion designer and artist. She creates a spa-like environment in which her legions of devoted readers can actively follow her online advice. Her staff of professional aestheticians and massage therapists exfoliates complexions with facials and soothes sore muscles with massages geared toward men, women, and teens. Medical Director Dr. Steven Abdelmalak specializes in laser treatments with the latest technology, cosmetic dermatology, and internal medicine.
In addition to removing tattoos, Professional Medical Corp's experienced doctors harness the photon-borne powers of the PinPointe FootLaser to painlessly and effectively whisk fungi from patients' nails. Additionally, the team helps clients safely and effectively manage foot pain through MLS laser therapy. Such therapies can treat pain associated with plantar faciitis, neuromas, arthritis, joint pain, sore muscles, post surgical swelling, and more. When used, MLS laser improves vascular activity, improves nerve function, boosts metabolic activity, and promotes faster healing.
A board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Omeed Memar specializes in liposuction and fat transfer, holds a clinical assistant professorship at Northwestern University, and serves as the medical director of the Academic Dermatology & Skin Cancer Institute. He designs medical devices for fat transfer treatments, and his research has been showcased in leading scientific publications, making him a sought-after expert for speaking engagements and television appearances.
Dr. Memar combines his 12+ years of surgical expertise with an understanding of what it takes for clients to feel comfortable in their skin. A member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, he stays ahead of the latest advancements and can correct aesthetic imbalances ranging from sagging cheeks to acne scars to being a painting by Picasso. Blemishes as varied as spider veins, skin tags, age spots, and birthmarks can be zapped away with a medical-grade laser. Photofacials, peels, and microdermabrasion smooth away dead skin cells, while hair transplants revive depleted manes and resurfacing treatments take years off of hands. Minimal incision face-lifts, tucks, and liposuction, meanwhile, renovate bodies with more permanent solutions. Dr. Memar also specializes in restoring the youthful sparkle to eyes. Drawing on more than 10 years of experience, his eyelid lifts erase the bags and excess skin that drag winks down.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian has not only been in the lipo biz since 1981 but also has authored a textbook on the topic and developed several new surgical tools of the trade.

He also wipes out wrinkles, veins, unwanted hair, and passé tattoos, and he is able to bring his treatments to many, since he speaks five languages, including Armenian, Arabic, and pigeon.
