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 the vanguard of skin-saving technology, the SilkPeel stimulates damaged epidermises to produce healthful collagen and deliver therapeutic ingredients, such as vitamins and antioxidants, to torpid skin cells. A particle-free and personalized microdermabrasion, the SilkPeel eschews one-size-fits-all dermatology in favor of treatments tailored to each client's skin condition. Veteran aesthetician Tiffany Shoup, who has 10 years of experience, uses a specialized hand piece and serum to navigate face maps while improving acne-prone skin, moisturizing dry patches, and brightening dull complexions.
Beyond its rust-and-silver-hued metal sign, Monarch Health's patients meet with Dr. Deborah Cole-Sedivy and an adept medical staff of certified nurse practitioners. In the cosmetic-therapy center, a trio of LightSheer Duet lasers scours skin's excess fuzz. Medical staffers bustle to and fro, working to personalize aesthetic services, such as facials and chemical peels, and families mosey into appointments for health surveys, physical examinations, and diet-and-lifestyle assessments. Therapists augment many treatment plans with natural foods and herbal supplements, which use Mother Earth's bounty to boost health without the dangers of bench-pressing a seemingly lonely bear cub.
Laser Ohio beautifies bodies with FDA-approved spider-vein-removal treatments. At the start of the treatment, which lasts 15–45 minutes, a technician will photograph the body area of choice for your medical files and the office refrigerator. A Laser Ohio staffer will then clean the epidermis to remove oil before gentle laser pulses heat abnormal veins without damaging surrounding skin. The treatment induces almost no pain—with each pulse the rough equivalent of a snapped rubber band—and necessitates little downtime. On average, it takes at least 2–5 treatments to get rid of spider veins, and 87 to get rid of veins entirely for a sleek, streamlined circulatory system.
When Erica Vicens?s mother, Gloria, came home one day with permanent eyeliner, Erica fell in love with the dramatic look. But she was only seven years old, and had to wait many years before getting the procedure herself. When Erica finally traded in her eyeliner pencil for good, she also signed up for a training class to learn how to apply permanent makeup on her own. ?The first time I took the training class, knew that was it,? Erica said. She was just as enchanted with the process as she had been with the results.
