On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.
Fusion Medical Spa operates under the supervision of Dr. Ayoub Sayeg, and its services reflect this clinical pedigree. Often, treatments make use of high-tech equipment, such as lasers that attack hair at the follicle level and microdermabrasion wands that rid faces of dead skin cells. Permanent makeup for the eyes, lips, and other features draws out the natural beauty in clients or the fading marker-faces of coconuts.
Helmed by a husband-and-wife team, the staff at Eternally Young Clinic offers several avenues by which clients may attain younger, healthier appearances. Doctors can minimize the appearance of forehead creases and crow’s-feet with Botox injections, and they use other dermal fillers to carry that smoothness down to the cheeks and lips. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels resurface complexions victimized by sun damage and blemishes, revealing the smoother skin hiding just underneath. But beauty does not begin and end at the chin, which is why the clinic offers full-body treatments such as laser hair removal and i-Lipo—a body-contouring treatment that helps clients slim down without undergoing surgery or hula-hooping cross country.
Face and Body Wellness Studio’s talented, licensed aestheticians bring inner beauty to the forefront with a broad range of spa services performed with all natural and organic products. Natural peels and facials, deep-cleansing detox facials, hair removal, and mineral-infused body wraps are their bread and butter. Clients can stop by before a night on the town for a quick set of eyelash extensions or a makeup application.
Spa-a-Peel’s sign says it’s “the look fabulous studio,” though the offerings within its peaceful confines go much deeper. Upon entering, clients are greeted by a smiling staff member who stands ready to help clients transform their day with a massage, a facial, or a mani-pedi. On top of that, treatments at Spa-a-Peel transport guests away from the daily grind and into a place of relaxation and bliss that feels like home, but with a far more talented staff.
When head stylist Tameshia "Me Me" McConnell founded Lillie D'or Salon & Spa in July 2012, she brought more than 15 years of experience along with her shears and combs. Beyond haircuts, the salon's services span from relaxers and highlights to facials, massages, and makeup applications. Drinks from the Lillie Bar refresh clients in between services, as do visits to the cozy waiting area outfitted with sleek, contemporary furniture.
