At Artistic Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Khash A. Dehghan and a team of specialists educate clients on the risks and benefits of aesthetic, cosmetic, and surgical procedures before performing treatments that enhance outward appeal. Drawing on more than a dozen years of experience, Dr. Dehghan modifies or enhances nearly any area of the body with procedures including chin augmentation, facelifts, and rhinoplasty. Anna Johnston, a Euro Institute of Skin Care graduate, makeup artist, and medical aesthetician, supplements the center's surgical procedures with spa services such as derma planing or chemical peels, which remove dull, dead cells or dry, flaky milk moustaches.
Laser light is a quick, relatively painless, and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods. The surrounding tissue is unaffected, and there is little to no irritation of the skin. Most areas usually require three to six treatments performed in six- to ten-week intervals to fully rid the dermis of unwelcome fur. Dr. Robert Niedblaski and the certified professionals at the physician-owned-and-operated Laser Hair & Skin Center will strip your lip of unwanted strands ($396 per package; a package is up to five treatments) or whip your bikini line ($796 per package) into two-piece shape just in time for Unusually Casual Friday at the office.
Serenity Spa and Natural Health Clinic's eco-friendly sanctuary wraps well-worn bodies in relaxing energy with an array of holistic healing treatments. The 60- to 90-minute acupuncture treatment strives to release tension and stress wedged, like squatting trolls, along the body's factory lines of energy. Designed to create a spacious tunnel for the chi (energy) to flow, fine needles are delicately inserted into critical pressure points along the physique, potentially helping to relieve allergies or treat autoimmune diseases and pulmonary disorders. Further bolstering relaxation, the 15- to 20-minute aromatherapy foot and head massage works to invigorate the senses with scented oils, soothing strokes, and an absence of heavy-metal music.
For 10 years, Dawn Thompson worked beside top dermatologists and plastic surgeons as a surgical assistant. Armed with that experience and her education as an aesthetician, Dawn takes an all-encompassing approach to skincare at Island Skin and Laser, a recipient of a 2012 Seattle Award. Her firsthand experience helps her to personalize treatments to each client using medical-grade skincare products by lines such as SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and Revaléskin, none of which contain perfumes or dyes. The aesthetician tackles common skincare issues with treatments ranging from traditional facials to advanced hydrafacials, erbium facials, and photofacials. As a laser pro, Dawn can also shine a light to banish unwanted hairs and bats that are bothering bodies.
Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat and his highly trained and experienced Botox injection technicians smoothes brows, de-furrows frown lines, and scatters crow’s feet with Botox injections. After an informative, free consultation, patients recline in a chair or bed as the doctor determines where to place the injections and which eyebrow can best pull off highlights. No anesthesia is required during the 10-minute procedure, but clients can request a cold pack to numb soon-to-be-smoothed faces before the practitioner injects tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into facial furrows. Within as little as a few days, the solution eases stubborn wrinkles' grasp on foreheads and brow lines, diminishing their appearance and late-night dance parties for up to four months. Clients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
