Dr. Joseph B. Neiman, a board-certified dermatologist with more than 30 years of experience to his credit, draws on training from New York University, the University of Tennessee, and Brown to treat the entire body. His background also includes hair restoration and nailcare. Together with a pair of trained nurse practitioners, he works over intense-pulsed-light units, hair-removal lasers, and other pieces of modern technology. In treatment rooms, the team also draws upon an arsenal of Botox, Radiesse, and other products to help patrons meet beauty goals without always having to give a fairy godmother rides to the airport.
Despite spending most of their 125-plus-year history as a minor-league organization, the Bisons were a major-league club from 1879 to 1885. All told, nearly 3,000 players and managers have donned the Bisons uniform, including 20 who have been immortalized in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Currently, the Bisons compete every summer for an International League title, as well as the Thruway Cup—a regional and bragging-rights-based trophy chased by the Bisons, the Rochester Red Wings, and the Syracuse Chiefs. The Bisons have played half of their games since 1988 at Coca-Cola Field, which boasts the largest video board in the minors and an infield kept moist by hoses that spray water and not the soda that the field’s name would suggest.
At Good Health Rejuvenation, a skin savior repairs dingy dermis with two types of Glytone chemical peels. A salicylic-acid peel gently wipes away excess oil, dirt, and chalk drawings of Conrad Bain from blemish-prone skin on a client's face, back, and chest, and the glycolic-acid peel irons out fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, leaving skin looking millions of seconds younger. Clients can then procure medical-grade skincare products such as a mild gel or cream wash ($29), facial cream ($42–$46), or exfoliating lotion ($32–$38) to continue their skincare regimen at home. Though rare, side effects for both peels can include mild pain and itching and can last for up to a week.
Audubon Women's Medical Associates' female nurse practitioners, licensed aesthetician, and board-certified physicians focus solely on meeting the needs of fellow women—whether examining future family members with ultrasounds, clearing away unwanted fuzz with laser hair removal, or soothing the day-to-day stress of balancing work and home life with massage.

Dr. Bertolino is also one of the area's only practitioners to offer bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, which introduces testosterone and estrogen back into aging bodies with time-release capsules implanted in the skin, helping men and women maintain their health, youth, and love of trampolines.
Dr. Mary Louise Lenahan, a board-certified dermatologist for more than 25 years and chief of dermatology for the Catholic Health System, helms a team of highly trained professionals who evaluate and employ advanced skincare technologies to treat a range of epidermal needs. Experts use cosmetic lasers to treat rosacea, sun damage, and other planetary anomalies, and assorted cosmetic injectables—such as Botox, Dysport, and Sculptra—subdue curmudgeonly skin folds. Technicians also cosset complexions with chemical peels and extract unsightly facial and body hair from all skin types under the medically informed direction of Dr. Lenahan, who, in addition to being a member of the Buffalo-Rochester Dermatology Society, is also a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.
