It's not uncommon for vision problems to run in the family. That's why the amicable optometrists at Premier Eye Care tailor their practice to suit the whole clan, from grandparents to kids as young as six months old. That may seem like a wide age range, especially on the younger side of the spectrum, but it makes sense in light of one of their core tenets: early detection. They use state of the art machines, such high-definition digital retinal cameras, to seek out and correct any ocular maladies before they worsen. They can also use this cutting-edge technology for more advanced procedures, such as visual field testing and corneal topography that ensures there aren't any vision-impairing apples growing in there.
Once exams are complete, patients can wander the sleek, hardwood-floored space to try on stylish frames or talk about the possibility of contact lenses with a professional. The walls are lined with a slew of designer brands, including Versace, Prada, Oakley, and Gucci.
Aestheticians and laser technicians come together for the common good of skin at Skin Studio & Laser Boutique, combining their expertise to rid the body of unwanted hair, visible veins, and hyper-pigmented or dulled complexions. After a consultation and a skin analysis, aestheticians customize facials to each client’s needs, helping clear acne, treat rosacea, fight aging, and unfreeze funny faces. They also apply custom airbrush tans to camouflage cellulite and stretch marks and enhance eyes with lash tabbing—a process that adds length and volume to natural lashes and lasts about a week. When not targeting problem follicles or splotchy capillaries, laser technicians calibrate their equipment to hone in on sagging skin, using the painless, light-based technology to increase production of collagen and elastin and restore lost firmness.
