Nestled among towering trees in a stone-flanked cottage, Cosmetic Skin Care Specialists of Cherry Hill highlights clients' inner beauty within a serene, homelike environment. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Lyle M. Back calls on more than 20 years of experience as he polishes silhouettes with focused surgical procedures and in-office cosmetic services. Meanwhile, his veteran staff enhances appearances with a slew of nonsurgical treatments—including facials, massage, and waxing—that return bodies to the ravishing, youthful state they flaunted when first hatching from their eggs.
At Laser Skin Beautiful, Dr. Alan M. Burke and his staff slow the progress of Father Time with a mix of orthopedic and cosmetic services. On the surface, they can remove wrinkles using vampire face-lifts and Botox injections. Meanwhile, for less visible signs of aging, such as tendon or ligament injuries, they can prescribe platelet-rich plasma therapy, a nonsurgical procedure that uses the patient's own blood to speed the healing process. And, rounding out the services are a number of pulsating laser treatments that are ideal for removing spider veins and tattoos from the skin.
As a board-certified surgeon who specializes in minimally invasive cosmetic surgery, Dr. Adam Goldstein, along with his fellow board-certified vascular surgeons, knew he wanted to use the latest in laser therapy techniques to contour bodies and eradicate varicose veins. Dr. Goldstein, the founder of ScuLpt Cosmetic Surgery, says he was drawn to SmartLipo because it allows doctors to not only contour bodies by liquefying and suctioning out fat but also to do it in a way that is less invasive than traditional liposuction, which can often result in extensive bleeding. This enables patients to have speedier recoveries and get back to normal activities, such as work or counting the seconds until the End Times, in a few days.
The vascular surgeons on staff rid legs of ropey varicose vessels with ultrasound-monitored endovenous laser therapy (ELVT). This technique closes off painful blood conduits with laser energy, clearing up the dark veins on legs with very little downtime.
The team of hair restorers at Keystone Hair take a non-surgical approach to solving baldness. Rather than relying on lasers that can fail or toupees that can be plucked off by low-flying pterodactyls, the team customizes a thin membrane of semi-permanent hair that, once affixed, blends in seamlessly with existing hair. Clients can swim, shower, and style their new locks, which are designed to last up to six weeks.
Dr. Harold Farber's technique has been described by some as "artful poetry in motion." It could have something to do with his state-of-the-art equipment—which he uses to assess patients' health and dermal conditions—or the fact that he allays concerns by explaining his every move during treatments.
At Center for Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, he oversees a team of dermatologists who correct issues such as acne, sun damage, and signs of aging. The team follows Dr. Farber's lead by keeping abreast of the latest techniques, be it the sloughing off of dead skin cells through microdermabrasion or the illuminating of complexions with chemical peels or a steady hand with a spotlight.
Dr. Kam Tareen trained in acupuncture at what might be an unexpected place: Harvard Medical School. The course he took there united ancient medicinal practices with Western ones, helping him to practice both. At Advanced Physician Acupuncture, though, he focuses on the former. His treatments include Japanese acupuncture, ear acupuncture for bodywide pain control, massage therapy, and nonsurgical Face-Lifts, which rely on acupuncture needles to stoke the face's production of collagen.
