Tending to bodies for more than 30 years, The Skin Center Medical Spa enhances innate beauty through noninvasive laser treatments, anti-aging skin therapies, and cosmetic enhancements. Conceived by Dr. Dominic Brandy, the current medical director at three Pittsburgh locations, and overseen by the Columbus location's medical director, Dr. Fernando Colon, the minimally invasive QuickLift mini face-lift helps tighten the lower face, neck, and jawline with a dramatically shortened recovery time. The Skin Center's experts revitalize all components of the face, targeting veins, hair, or _Mona Lisa_–shaped birthmarks through surgical solutions and high-tech injections. Vascular surgeons Dr. Marios Panayides and Dr. Jason Tomsic specialize in minimally invasive surgeries such as such as endovenous laser ablation, phlebectomy, and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy to serve skin below the head.
Ideal Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery's offices, associated with Straka & Mcquone, Inc., are all designed to make patients feel comfortable and safe. Yale graduate and board-certified surgeon Dr. Paul Leong performs all facial treatments, except for laser hair removal, which is done by a trained technician and supervised by Leong. Each option includes a full, personal consultation with Dr. Leong to discuss treatment options and design individualized plans. Laser hair removal works over six sessions to gradually reduce hair growth, and is considerably less painful than getting dipped in hot wax and coated in feathers. The sessions may be used for underarms or any small areas—upper lip, chin, fingers, toes, or ears—but may be upgraded to a medium-sized area (such as bikini line) for an additional $59 per treatment.
Laser technician Anna Hilborn helms Opal Rose, which is located within the McDowell Shops. Here, she aims to resolve problematic skin expediently and safely. Stubborn acne is controlled when met with advanced laser treatments. Lasers also gently remove unwanted body hair while entertaining clients with light shows set to the Eagles.
Drawing from more than 10 years of dental experience, Dr. Alvaro Lazo emphasizes gentle dentistry aided by advanced technology. Before performing dental services such as root canals, extractions, or cleaning, technicians reveal inner-mouth workings with digital radiography, which reduces the radiation exposure of traditional radiographs by up to 90%. Laser cavity detection and treatment seek out and stop tooth decay without the use of drills that can inadvertently tap into a tooth's precious oil reserves.
Dr. Cole and his staff at Cole Health Institute understand the difficulty of ridding the body of stubborn inches. They've helped more than 1,000 patients slim down, reducing excess belly fat, whittling away love handles, and shrinking forearms bulged by years of spinach eating. Both of the office's two laser systems, the Zerona device and the Lapex BCS laser, target fat cells to disrupt their membranes and cause them to shrink, which results in lost inches and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
At The 2 of Us Massage, a pair of skilled therapists brews seasonal body treatments harvested from naturally therapeutic autumnal ingredients. During the pumpkin-spice body wrap, a dry brush rakes over skin to collect loose-leaf cells and barbecue sauce from summer picnics before technicians frost pelts with a concoction of pumpkin and cinnamon. While this warming blend opens pores and stirs circulation, the therapist adds extracts of organically analgesic clove, nutmeg, and orange to soothe achy muscles. After marinating for 45 minutes, limbs taste a 30-minute pumpkin-spice massage flavored with cocoa butter and sunflower oil that extracts the tension the body has acquired from applying for a job as a scarecrow.
