The aestheticians at American Skin Care pamper clients' skin during treatments intended to give them a smooth, youthful glow.

Dr. George Violin, armed with nearly a quarter-century's worth of refractive-surgery experience, goes to battle with patients' misshaped corneas so they can enjoy functional sight without glasses or contact lenses. Instead of a traditional thin metal blade, the IntraLase procedure creates corneal flaps with rapid pulses of laser light, resulting in reshaped corneas that can heal faster and withstand awkward eye contact from strangers. Prior to the procedure, patients must come in for a complimentary consultation and pre-operative eye exam where the experienced staff will perform diagnostic tests to ensure that eyes are viable candidates for LASIK. After the surgery, which takes five to 10 minutes per eye (the entire appointment lasts about 45 minutes), patients will typically come in for follow-up visits throughout the next year to answer questions and remedy x-ray vision.
Since graduating from the New England College of Optometry in 1981, Dr. Hendrick Krosschell's thirst for knowledge hasn't diminished.

Krosschell's office also has a large selection of frames from designers such as Kate Spade, Ted Baker, and Ralph Lauren.

Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.
