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.

The medical staff at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery has the clinical knowledge and artistic touch to transform patients from head to toe—and they have the awards to prove it.

The center has also earned prestigious Diamond-level provider status from Allergan, the maker of Botox. These four caring doctors can perform cosmetic surgical procedures on virtually any body parts.

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.
Recognized as one of the 25 most influential venous professionals by Vein magazine, board-certified Dr. Ronald G. Bush helps vanquish unwanted spider veins with sclerotherapy injections or laser wavelengths at Midwest Vein & Laser Center. After Dr. Bush shakes each of the spider vein's eight hands, he assesses the trouble area by scanning the skin surface with an ultrasound or light. Moderately and severely mottled spots can be treated with the sclerotherapy's injected solution, which helps coagulate and redirect blood to lessen spider-vein clumps. Alternatively, for clients who have skin types 1–4 and have not recently held a slumber party in a tanning bed, the laser-therapy treatment can help thwart smaller reddish veins or facial veins. Each treatment lasts 20 minutes on average, and patients can schedule an additional treatment at the Groupon price if booked on the initial visit.
Armed with safe, speedy, ClearScan laser hair removal technology, the highly qualified medical staff at Premier Aesthetic and Laser Centre are able to use a computer-guided scanning system to evenly zap away offending follicles from the lip, chin, underarm, ears, hands, toes, or neckline.
