Certified injection specialist and BSN registered nurse Susan McIntosh noticed a pattern: friends and colleagues weren't happy with their cosmetic injection experiences. She set out to discover why, ultimately identifying a lack of expertise and bedside manner as two of the biggest problems, and decided she could do better. For more than 15 years, McIntosh has used her skills to provide medical injections to their patients, along with a helping of personal attention, warmth, and reassurances that needles aren't really that scary. She takes time to ensure patients' comfort with clear explanations of her procedures and responses to all of their questions, an approach that helps Susan tailor the procedures to each patient's needs. Susan also owns a training company that educates other nurses and physicians in injection procedures. All procedures are overseen by Dr. Brian Young, who boasts specialized training in aesthetic procedures.
Beyond refining facial features, Susan also revamps bodies with electro body sculpting. Adhesive electrodes carefully placed on trouble spots help stimulate underused muscles or unwanted fat cells, simulating the benefits of a nine-hour workout in around 90 minutes. When the treatment is over, many patients walk away with stronger muscles, less cellulite, and a detoxified physique.
At BodyLight Fat Loss Centers, which maintains a commitment to customer satisfaction, trained technicians harness the power of LED bulbs to keep their patients looking slim and youthful. Their signature treatment uses an array of LEDs to shrink fat cells and dispose of excess fat across the entire body, resulting in a slimmer figure. Other LED treatments include facial skin rejuvenation and skin tightening.
Staffed by a highly trained team of physicians, registered nurses, and medical aestheticians, Eastside Skin Care & Laser Center works to keep faces and physiques youthful with a suite of aesthetic services. Each visit kicks off with a personalized consultation before technicians perform Botox injections, spider-vein treatments, and skits about the discovery of laser hair removal by a clumsy CD-drive technician.
A longtime resident of Windsor, Dr. Patrick Smith, M.D. returned to the area after completing medical school and opened a family practice in 1987. He enjoyed the work but longed to transition into dermatology, for which he held both a passion and professional training. Years later, he assembled a team of estheticians and opened his namesake skincare clinic: Dr. P.X. Smith Medical Cosmetics.
Open for more than seven years, the clinic offers cosmetic and medical-grade services including Botox and Juvederm, laser skin-resurfacing treatments, and mole removal from both faces and lawns. Dr. Smith performs all medical consultations and directly supervises treatments performed by his highly trained staff.
As a skincare expert, the doctor is dedicated to educating his community about the dangers of excessive sun exposure. He worked at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre before starting his family practice and coordinated the Mark Hunt Melanoma Awareness Fund-Raising Walk to heighten awareness of skin cancer, particularly malignant melanoma.
