Both co-owners of HealthPoint RX help patients decide what to put in their bodies—family nurse practitioner Ginger Dailey by recommending medications and delivering injections of Botox and Juvéderm, and licensed dietician Annsley Ulrich by designing nutrition plans. Together, they run a facility where sclerotherapy vanquishes spider veins and appetite suppressants curb the urge to splice your genes with those of a cake. Perhaps most importantly, their monthly nutritional counseling outfits clients with personalized meal plans, a practice that helps them lose weight without endangering their health.
Dr. Briggs E. Cook Jr.'s prestigious resume includes a medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, a residency in ophthalmology at the Mayo Clinic, and a fellowship in eye and facial cosmetic surgery at the University of Wisconsin. The board-certified ophthalmologist and surgeon has also published numerous professional papers on oculoplastic and cosmetic surgery.
But Dr. Cook's knowledge isn't merely academic, and he puts his surgical skills to use at Pure Facial Plastic Surgery, where he lifts sagging eyelids, reduces undereye bags, and firms necks. He also relies on less invasive procedures to make skin look more youthful, including cosmetic injections and dermal fillers. A consultation with Dr. Cook can help clients determine which procedure is right for them and get a detailed analysis of their dream journal.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Bruce Marko has a light touch for body sculpting and facial rejuvenation at Enhanced Images Medical, eschewing the "no pain, no gain" beauty philosophy. Dedicated to minimally invasive procedures, he has continually sought out new, gentle technology since he completed his surgical residency at the Orlando Regional Medical Center and saw the wrinkles Linda Hamilton developed while screaming in The Terminator. His specialty in microscopic hair transplantation represents both his technical precision—he painstakingly duplicates the original growth pattern with new follicles—and his interest in creating a natural look with small adjustments. He also takes his time with patients, who develop a safe, effective route toward their ideal look during free 20-minute conferences.
Although Dr. Marko can lift slack cheeks with a few deft incisions, he maintains a collection of five cosmetic injections to smooth facial creases with little more than a pinprick. Erchonia and Cynosure lasers help patients to sidestep weight-loss surgery and skin-rejuvenation techniques that abrade cheeks through exposure to Fran Drescher's laugh, and the lasers can also rout toenail fungus and unwanted hair.
When state-certified medical aesthetician Rachel Roff decided to open Urban Skin Solutions, a medical weight loss center in 2006, she envisioned a place where clients of all skin tones could come in to improve their complexions. Her vision led to the development of various skincare treatments, including peels, facials, and microdermabrasions. The processes are all bolstered by Urban Skin Rx, a line of clinical products suitable for patrons with any type of skin and almost any favorite Power Ranger. In treatment rooms, a medical doctor such a co-owner Dr. David Henderson helps Rachel and her team of technicians harness the power of beauty injections and laser-energy systems in their effort to accomplish patrons? aesthetic dreams.

Dr. Carlene Ashley first made waves in the field of cosmetic surgery by becoming Newport Beach's first female plastic surgeon in 1986. Since then, she's worked in a number of practices, all with the promise of accentuating clients' best attributes for a natural look, "mak[ing] you look better, not different." At MedBoutique, Dr. Ashley teams up with staff in order to provide a wide range of services from the surgical?such as blepharoplasty and skin-tag removal?to the noninvasive?including photofacials and laser body contouring. They even offer traditional spa services such as facials and body waxing for clients averse to surgery or secret agents with a serious laser phobia.
