Whether applying a mask or cleaning pores with a chemical peel, they begin by analyzing each client’s skin type first, ensuring that their treatments fit its unique topography.

They wage war on blemishes and sagging skin with a cutting-edge array of microdermabrasion, light therapy, and cellulite treatments. Helping to bring about the renewal, an arsenal of products from gloProfessional, DermaQuest Skin Therapy, and SkinSense’s own line stands ready to target blackheads or smooth and tone the outer organ instead of attacking all wrinkles with the same clothes iron.
Joseph Olinger, PhD, founder of Biomedic Research Group, has been in the hair-replacement and hair-restoration business for more than three decades. His knowledge of chemistry and nutrition has helped him develop support systems for a multi-theraputic approach, as well as preventive health initiatives to keep strands from jumping ship. In the mid-1990s, he started exploring the use of lasers in the battle against balding. These noninvasive devices can be used at home or in a clinical setting, and Dr. Olinger eventually started offering them in his Biomedic clinics.
