Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lorri Cobbins professionally polishes bone blankets into taut physique canvases with an array of cosmetic and reconstructive services. Specializing in breast surgery and body contouring, Dr. Cobbins uses the same care and skillful techniques to artfully execute such nonsurgical procedures as Botox, an injectable solution that smoothes facial-fabric wrinkles. With 20 units of Botox, choose to unfurrow brows into ascending arches or de-wrinkle crow's-feet surrounding vision viewfinders. The procedure takes as little as 10 minutes, with no downtime and full results in 3–5 days.
Inside AAAHC–accredited Syracuse Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Center, board-certified Dr. Halliday windshield-wipes life's debris from weathered faces and bodies with surgical and chemical treatments. During the mini microdermabrasion facial, a licensed aesthetician begins by choosing medical-grade SkinMedica products based on individual skin type. Exfoliating crystals then slough off dead skin cells while reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and skin crinkles. Next, countenances spend 30 minutes reversing the effects of time, sun damage, and James Cagney impersonations with a peel that patients generally tolerate well and that require minimal recovery time. Dr. Halliday also frees hostage skin from tense facial muscles with Botox injections to soften forehead wrinkles, glabellar “11s” between eyes, smile lines, or horizontal “bunny” lines across the nose. The 25 units can also lift fallen brows to give eyes more of a youthful appearance or antiquated Gothic arch. Like washing your hair in a vat of chewed bubble gum, treatment takes only about 15 minutes but yields results that may last three–five months on average.
Recognized as a center of excellence by major pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, Robbins Eye has built its reputation on a team of experienced doctors and the latest laser, surgical, and diagnostic technology. Dr. Allan Robbins was one of the first surgeons in the country to use intraocular lenses for cataract surgery, and helped bring surgical advancements such as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and bladeless LASIK to upstate New York.
In addition to completing laser procedures, Dr. Robbins and his colleagues receive ongoing training in innovations such as surgical Crystalens implants, which operate like a hinge and are therefore highly flexible. Performing treatments at their dedicated surgery centers allows them to control key factors such as equipment updates and temperature and humidity levels, which can be critical for optimal outcomes and proper Chia pet growth.
Goel Family Dentistry cleans mouths and brightens teeth with an array of general and cosmetic dental services. After a consultation to determine the patient's current needs, Dr. Goel and his team harness the chomper-illuminating brawn of Venus White Max. With happy teeth-owners comfortably reclined, the whitening wizards bring the product to ivory-light life through careful mixing before applying it to break up stains and discoloration, quickly fizzling the bonds they've formed with denticles. Venus White Max works its magic over four 15-minute periods with 38% hydrogen peroxide and passionate potassium nitrate, which helps cancel out sensitivity often linked to bleaching. Through continued correct oral hygiene hijinks such as hosting in-mouth floss tightrope contests and post-whitening touchups, patients may continue to reap the benefits of whitening for years after the treatment.
The expert aestheticians at Exquisite Skincare and Waxing mollycoddle guests from the neck up with facials custom-fit to their skin types and strengthened with Dermalogica tonics and salves. The Dermalogica facial commences with a mapping that analyzes the face’s topography and plots the most direct bus route from the chin to the forehead. A skinsmith then double cleanses and exfoliates the visage, ridding it of stubborn makeup, dirt, and past-their-prime skin cells. Warm steam opens up pores before a gentle extraction, if necessary, whisks away blemish-causing bacteria from the face. The façade refurbishing continues with a customized mask and application of serums, toner, eye cream, and a hydrating moisturizer. A light facial massage concludes the pampering, transporting minds to places of relaxation—like a sandy beach or the inside of Paul Bunyan’s pillow. Exquisite Skincare ensconces visitors in a serene setting decked with lavender paint, glowing chandeliers, and fresh flowers.
Dr. V. Brian Gagliardi, who completed his residency at the Cleveland Clinic—one of the nation’s top hospitals for 2011-12 according to U.S. News & World Report—maintains and beautifies chompers alongside his expert staff. As patients watch movies on in-room TVs, Dr. Gagliardi fixes their fangs using progressive technology such as intraoral cameras and digital x-rays, which have less radiation than traditional x-rays and are less likely to cause extra eyes to sprout. In addition to regular checkups, Dr. Gagliardi fosters straighter smiles in as little as six months with Rapid Braces and disguises bridges and fillings with tooth-colored dental work. He will also use sedation dentistry to make dental procedures as peaceful as a nap on a giant ball of yarn.
