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.

The physicians and veteran medical aesthetician Tiffany Shoup of Winchester Laser Cosmetic revitalize visages of all types with the Obagi Blue Peel Radiance treatment. In 20 to 30 minutes, Tiffany administers the Obagi peel's salicylic, lactic, and glycolic acids to uproot the outermost layer of epidermis, revealing the untouched skin and secrets that lie below the surface. Freshened faces may leave the cosmetic hub sporting smoother, tighter, brighter skin improved in texture and tone. The gentle Obagi peel may result in mild flaking, peeling, or redness, but requires little or no downtime, so clients can return to normal activities quickly, such as competition tax filing or thinking about competition tax filing. Obagi's skin scientists recommend four to six peels for optimal results.
