A member of the American Medical Association and American Osteopathic Association, Dr. Helise Bichefsky leads Ageless Health's team as they work with patients during both primary-care and aesthetic procedures. The center's medical professionals are at once dedicated to helping patients treat serious illnesses, such as diabetes, and performing general wellness checkups and cosmetic procedures. Personal problem areas see improvement under the care of laser treatments performed by Estheticians who use the condensed light to rejuvenate skin, clear away unwanted hair, or target wrinkles. Further anti-aging treatments include LaserFACIALS, collagen masks, and doctor's notes to get out of one's own birthday party. The center's staff rely on Hymed skincare products specifically designed for sensitive skin, which can help patients treat problem areas at home.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Saunders has more than 25,000 surgeries under his belt. His portfolio includes face-lifts, tummy tucks, breast augmentations, and liposuction. He also offers less invasive procedures that smooth fine lines, such as Botox or Dysport injections.
Like building a home, losing weight involves the interlocking of several pieces. The weight-loss architects at Physicians Weight Control build healthy physiques upon four pillars. Diet plans personalized to the client’s lifestyle control intake of nutrients and fat, fueling the clinic's aerobic-exercise plans. The last two pillars—appetite suppressants and vitamin supplements—combine to keep energy levels up and re-create the rush of swallowing a candy bar whole once the client starts eating smaller meals.
Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Stephen Hess and the team at Center City Dermatology tend to both medical and cosmetic skin concerns in a professional clinic setting. They see patients of all ages, from infants to seniors, and treat everything from acne and rosacea to wrinkles and Cheetos-stained fingers. Their specialized treatments include ultraviolet phototherapy to zap psoriasis and eczema, and they use flashes of laser light to target unwanted body hair or broken blood vessels.
Juventas Aesthetic Center zeroes in on unflattering fuzz and zaps it away with lasting precision. Focused wavelengths stun hairs during the active growth stage with repeated treatments recommended at four to six week intervals to lull follicles into letting their guard down. The procedure induces minimal discomfort, though sensitive souls can request a topical anesthetic and a singing telegram if they wish. Juventas typically prescribes about six treatments for essentially permanent decreases in hair density and whisker reduction. Call for an appointment 9 a.m.–4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
