Dr. Susan Glaudi, owner and director of Bonus Image Aesthetics, smoothes complexions with carefully administered injections of FDA-approved Botox. With the 20 units of Botox, patients can temporarily free their brows of glabellar lines formed from repetitive frowning and aggressive eyelid clapping. Once Dr. Glaudi infuses foreheads with the prescription medicine, the solution actively blocks nerve impulses to decrease the activity of wrinkle-forming muscles. Frown lines may continue fading away for up to a month after the 30-minute procedure, producing a smoother countenance that can provide patients with up to four months of unquestioned food-ordering from the kids' menu.
Dr. Stephanie V. Oberhelman at Kansas Surgical Arts is both a Doctor of Osteopathy and a board-certified general surgeon. Armed with a laproscopic camera, she removes appendixes and diseased sections of colons with minimal incisions and stitches. She also uses cameras to peer into the GI tract, screening for cancers, snatching biopsies, and oohing over kaleidoscopic formations. To improve patients’ exteriors, her team of vascular experts maps out varicose veins with ultrasound technology before using noninvasive methods—such as sclerotherapy or lasers—to diminish their appearance.
At Allure Wellness - MD, a medical aesthetics practice supervised by Internal Medical MD, weight-loss specialists neutralize the evidence of bodily wear and tear through a merger of natural remedies and scientific progress. For example, they strive to correct cholesterol levels, fatigue, and weight gain with organically occurring nutrients, such as vitamin B12, and Exilis contouring procedures harness radio frequencies in order to melt down fat deposits without the use of intimidating tools, such as lasers or personal trainers dressed as bears. Dermaroller sessions target skin ailments ranging from wrinkles to distinct scars, employing microneedles to stimulate collagen production and the growth of fresh capillaries, which further nourish complexions. Hormone therapies and weight-loss plans address more internal, long-term goals.
Derby Derm’s team of aestheticians aims to transform clients' skin and bodies with a cornucopia of soothing and high-tech treatments. On the futuristic side of the menu, the Liposonix system uses focused ultrasound to target and reduce stubborn fat, and laser hair-removal sessions zap unwanted fuzz and marker mustaches. For complexions seeking rejuvenation, the crew employs dermatological treatments to banish blemishes such as warts, moles, and acne. The business's Rebel Medical Day Spa provides a soothing balance to the clinic’s more technology-focused offerings, welcoming clients to step out of their stress-inducing lives and cumbersome armor during pampering facials, beautifying injections, and skin-waxing services.
Dr. Sharon Breit conceived the idea for the Wichita's first all-female health clinic more than 20 years ago. About 10 years later, she and partner Dr. Karen Strecker made that dream a reality with the Center for Women’s Health, where they are joined by a female medical staff. The clinic's services, ranging from pregnancy and gynecological care to menopausal treatments, cater to women of all ages, who await their appointments in a waiting room more reminiscent of palatial living room than a sterile doctor's office. The center also tends to aesthetics with laser treatments for hair and vein removal and skin rejuvenation.
Dr. Christopher A. Moeller, a graduate of Duke University and Diplomat of the American Board of Dermatology, has more than 25 years of experience in the field. He makes use of it by leading Moeller Dermatology's team in helping clients deal with most types of skin conditions. In addition to general dermatology, Dr. Moeller and his staff run a Skin Enhancement Center within the practice that focuses on the pampering aspects of skin care. Aestheticians use treatments such as microdermabrasion and Fraxel that can help skin look as young and new as the day it was received from Sears Roebuck and Co.
