Although the Eye Specialists of Ohio caters to personal periscopes with ophthalmology and optometry services, its aesthetic division also employs medical expertise to address epidermal concerns via a variety of services. Before the hide-healing commences, professional eyeballs will examine your cranial slipcover in a 60-minute skin evaluation designed to identify problem areas and develop a plan of action.

The True Cashmere treatment consists of up to 60 minutes of topical exfoliation that targets acne scarring, enlarged pores, and age spots in its gritty crosshairs. Clients can also opt to clear their necks of unwanted scarves and live cats with the True Delicate treatment, which targets discoloration and evens skin's texture on the neck and décolleté.

Dr. Geoffrey Polen supervises Advanced Laser Skin Center?s team of experienced and qualified aestheticians as they use prescription-strength skincare products to minimize blemishes and signs of aging. Visitors to either of the center's two locations recline on treatment chairs in private rooms while aestheticians renovate their skin. The staff also polishes complexions with medical-grade facials, such as microdermabrasion treatments that suck away debris with a miniature vacuum and medical peels that swipe away blemishes, flatten wrinkles, administer necessary injections, and erase monocles drawn in permanent marker. Each visit is intended to help patients leave their visit completely refreshed and rejuvenated.
A trio of dentists—Drs. Doug Kowalczyk, Amy Glasgow, and Vicki Soungpradith—work hard to ensure that every patient at Linworth Family Dental leaves smiling.

Before Karrie-Ann Kubatko, PhD became a professor at the Ohio State University, she was a chemist who worked with pigments designed for use in micropigmentation. She learned about both cosmetic and medical applications of pigments, mastering techniques used to accentuate facial features with color as well as methods for repigmentation of areolas and cleft lips. Her extensive education and research manifested into a simple goal: making women’s lives easier.
Karrie-Ann dreamed of waking up every morning with a face that was already made up, and figured other women probably felt the same. She puts her experience to practical use at Kalila, a beauty clinic specializing in permanent makeup. Clients commission treatments that enhance eyes, brows, and lips with organic pigments instead of intangible rainbows. Because Karrie-Ann recognizes the process is a commitment, the cost of each treatment also includes an initial consultation and one or two follow-up sessions to make any necessary adjustments.
To cut even more time off women’s beauty routines, Karrie-Ann performs mesotherapy, a facial treatment that improves skin’s appearance by lightly piercing skin with fine needles. By causing controlled injury to the skin, the treatments activate skin’s natural healing process. This encourages the production of collagen, which can fill shallow imperfections such as fine lines or scars caused by acne, chickenpox, or sandpaper pillowcases.
The team at Grandview Aesthetic Center, led by dermatology specialist Dr. Rakesh Nanda, analyzes skin with high-resolution digital images and UV photography. However, skin analysis is not one of the center’s services—it is part of the complimentary consultation process that precedes each service, ensuring proper care for each unique complexion. The registered nurses and licensed aestheticians actually treat skin with an array of laser treatments; the therapeutic beams can firm skin, minimize acne and scars, or permanently reduce unwanted hair growth more effectively than depriving the hair of milk. They also brighten skin with microdermabrasions, darken it with spray tanning, and smooth it with body wraps. Botox injections and lash-lengthening Latisse treatments round out the center’s selection.
