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.
Go gunning for insurgent hair in your choice of the following locations: chin and lip, sideburns, underarms, bikini line, both sides of the neck, lower arms, or shoulders. A one-time $85 fee will grant you an upgrade for lower-leg treatments. Troy Laser Center's hair treatments are the last and best line of defense against the constant threat of delinquent follicles drunk on store-brand shampoo and hate. The center uses the intimidatingly named CoolGlide long-pulse Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser, featuring a longer wave of light, large spot size, and built-in copper cooling tip, which simultaneously lessens damage to the surrounding skin while providing a deeper penetration for more effective hair removal. The CoolGlide excels at treating both light- and dark-colored skin, including a-spectrum tones created in the Hulk Hogan Uber-Tan Chamber.
Dr. Alberto J. Aviles would tell you that in many ways, he went into the family business. Both of them. Most of his relatives either worked as physicians or musicians, which is fitting, because Dr. Aviles sees plastic surgery as a delicate blend of science and art.
Through Skyline Plastic Surgery, he uses advanced cosmetic or reconstructive plans to create striking visual transformations for his patients. After consultations, the board-certified surgeon and his team might employ non-surgical procedures such as injectables or even fat grafting and body contouring. As further proof of his expertise, Dr. Aviles serves as the Director of the Wound & Hyberbaric Center at Providence Park when he's not at Skyline Plastic Surgery or asleep.
Board-certified nurse practitioner Marian Blaesser Kahn heads up Wellness NP of Michigan, a weight-loss clinic focused on permanent slimming results achieved through healthy methods. The pound-shedding plans include comprehensive lab work to assess body composition and blood pressure, as well as nutritional guidance from a dietitian and the option of supplementary vitamin injections. Followup visits provide both support and encouragement, something your emotionally unavailable treadmill will never be able to give you.
Free of parabens, dyes, and other chemicals, Pure SKN's cosmetics and skincare products are as unadulterated as fresh snowfall. That's because the company's line of blushes, lipsticks, eye shadows, and moisturizers are made exclusively from natural ingredients, such as red rooibos tea from South Africa and crushed minerals imported from Germany (though the products are actually manufactured in Michigan).
The organic nature of the products has been appealing; the line is available at retailers throughout the Midwest, and it has attracted customers to the company's services, which range from spray tanning to makeup and eyelash-extension applications. For aspiring models and people who want to produce illegal stamps with their faces on them, there's even a headshot package that includes makeup and hairstyling.
