Seven days a week, experienced laser technicians refresh faces and bodies at Absolute Skin & Body Care. Acne, tattoos, and unwanted hair vanish in the wake of high-tech beams. Lasers also coax younger-looking façades to the surface by sloughing off fine lines, dullness, and bifocals. Other facial options include glycolic skin peels, nonsurgical facelifts performed with gentle microcurrent, and ultrasonic facials.
New Look Spa aims to boost clients' beauty and self-confidence with laser, body, and skin treatments. Certified laser technicians offer a number of advanced cosmetic treatments—among them skin rejuvenation, Matrix IR wrinkle reduction, and ReFirme skin tightening—to help clients look younger. Traditional spa services also abound, including acne facials and glycolic peels. And massage therapists apply their more than 35 years of combined experience to undo knots more intricate than an Escher maze with hot-stone and couples massages. Lastly, the spa offers weight-loss treatments, such as infrared-heat wraps and detox saunas, to help clients slim down and shape up.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mohamad H. Bazzi and his team strive to cultivate timeless beauty through aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, as well as noninvasive cosmetic procedures. Eschewing short-lived beauty trends, the staff at Celestial Institute of Plastic Surgery works to educate clients about the lasting look of each procedure, whether it's a brow lift, chemical peel, or laser tattoo removal. The institute features three different laser hair removal systems to treat clients of all different skin types. They match this expansive menu of services with high-end product lines, such as Obagi Medical Products, Colorescience, and Teamine. The Institute's 5,000-square-foot studio is located 15 minutes from Ann Arbor, 20 minutes from Detroit, and only 1 minute from a patch of sunshine ideal for modeling a brand-new look.
Dr. Michael Margolis, a board-certified physician, oversees each treatment at Erase The Ink M.D. To start, a trained technician applies topical Lidocaine to numb the area. Next, the technician aims a RevLite Q-switched laser at the offending ink. While the laser sends intense pulsed light beneath the skin to break up the pigment, which is then released naturally through the body’s immune system, a jet releases cold air on the area to optimize comfort. Not without a sense of humor, the staff donates its services to the patient with the worst tattoo each week.
The certified laser specialists at Rochester Laser Center work under the supervision of Dr. Robert Levine, zapping unwanted body hair, spider veins, tattoos, and nail fungi with the latest medical treatments. Armed with state-of-the-art lasers, such as the Cynosure Elite, MedLite C6, and PinPointe FootLaser, they perform procedures that require little to no downtime in the comfort of their welcoming office, which doubles as a facility for superheros to practice their laser training. The licensed esthetician on staff provides an array of spa services that leave the complexions refreshed and pores clear of dirt and debris.
Vixen Aesthetics arose from a passion for healing people and caring for skin. Medical director Dr. Jerry Greib developed an interest in aesthetics while treating patients in the emergency room. Leann Griffin, a registered nurse and the CEO of Vixen, fueled her passion for skin rejuvenation after caring for patients in the critical-care and burn-intensive-care units. Together, these two helm a staff that beautifies clients with medical and nonmedical aesthetic procedures. Wrinkles relax after injections of Botox or Dysport, and facial fillers such as Artefill, Restylane, and Juvéderm work to restore fullness. The staff rejuvenates complexions with exfoliating microdermabrasions as well as more advanced treatments, such as carboxytherapy—the practice of injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide into the skin to improve the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and lingering marker mustaches. With the assistance of versatile laser systems, they can also remove hair, resurface skin, remove tattoos, and eradicate nail fungus.
