Headed by veteran plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten, Central Ohio Plastic Surgery beautifies bodies with a suite of advanced cosmetic procedures. Botox treatments use injections of purified protein to paralyze wrinkle-causing muscles, smoothing out the epidermal furrows that can often obscure detailed facial tattoos. All procedures are performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon fully trained in administering injections safely and professionally. Appointments take about half an hour, and the injections themselves take only five minutes, allowing patients to defeat unwanted wrinkles during a lunch break or the boring part of a favorite feature-length infomercial. Full effects are usually apparent after two weeks, and the results last up to four to six months.
At Tipp City Medical Massage, licensed massage therapist Kathy Siegfried sees massages as more than just relaxing luxuries that follow bench-pressing the chandelier.

Biofreeze natural pain relieving gel augments massage strokes with cooling menthol and Bon Vital foot balm helps feet recover from blisters and abrasions.

Although the Eye Specialists of Ohio caters to personal periscopes with ophthalmology and optometry services, its aesthetic division also employs medical expertise to address epidermal concerns via a variety of services. Before the hide-healing commences, professional eyeballs will examine your cranial slipcover in a 60-minute skin evaluation designed to identify problem areas and develop a plan of action. Aging skin can relive its glamorous glory days with the 60-minute True Velvet treatment, which aims to hydrate while also promoting cellular activity by barring all microscopic Barcaloungers. The True Cashmere treatment consists of up to 60 minutes of topical exfoliation that targets acne scarring, enlarged pores, and age spots in its gritty crosshairs. Clients can also opt to clear their necks of unwanted scarves and live cats with the True Delicate treatment, which targets discoloration and evens skin's texture on the neck and décolleté. The accompanying silk-and-milk hand treatment exfoliates meat hooks before a paraffin dip seals in moisture. Check appointment availability online.

Katie Marcum's battle against chronic pain and tension began in 2008, when she first earned her license as a massage therapist. She set her hands and fingers to work kneading away deep aches and pains, and she particularly specializes in deep-tissue and trigger-point massage. Katie uses intense, carefully directed pressure to reach hidden knots and sources of soreness, instead of a map app on her phone.
