Free of parabens, dyes, and other chemicals, Pure SKN's cosmetics and skincare products are as unadulterated as fresh snowfall. That's because the company's line of blushes, lipsticks, eye shadows, and moisturizers are made exclusively from natural ingredients, such as red rooibos tea from South Africa and crushed minerals imported from Germany (though the products are actually manufactured in Michigan).
The organic nature of the products has been appealing; the line is available at retailers throughout the Midwest, and it has attracted customers to the company's services, which range from spray tanning to makeup and eyelash-extension applications. For aspiring models and people who want to produce illegal stamps with their faces on them, there's even a headshot package that includes makeup and hairstyling.
Board-certified nurse practitioner Marian Blaesser Kahn heads up Wellness NP of Michigan, a weight-loss clinic focused on permanent slimming results achieved through healthy methods. The pound-shedding plans include comprehensive lab work to assess body composition and blood pressure, as well as nutritional guidance from a dietitian and the option of supplementary vitamin injections. Followup visits provide both support and encouragement, something your emotionally unavailable treadmill will never be able to give you.
The staff at Progressive Laser beautify bodies with minimally invasive med-spa services during appointments scheduled seven days a week. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels exfoliate visages to imbue skin with a youthful glow, and injections of dermal fillers and Botox help smooth out fine lines. Hair removal with a Lumenis LightSheer laser can also clear-cut body foliage or pay homage to a favorite parent by shaping a patch of arm hair to spell out mom.
Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center's team, which is captained by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai, enhances anatomical aesthetics with noninvasive treatments and surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. Microdermabrasion wands zip over sun-hardened skin and injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm work to firm up facial surfaces and fade fine lines. The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.
On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.
Go gunning for insurgent hair in your choice of the following locations: chin and lip, sideburns, underarms, bikini line, both sides of the neck, lower arms, or shoulders. A one-time $85 fee will grant you an upgrade for lower-leg treatments. Troy Laser Center's hair treatments are the last and best line of defense against the constant threat of delinquent follicles drunk on store-brand shampoo and hate. The center uses the intimidatingly named CoolGlide long-pulse Nd:YAG 1064 nm laser, featuring a longer wave of light, large spot size, and built-in copper cooling tip, which simultaneously lessens damage to the surrounding skin while providing a deeper penetration for more effective hair removal. The CoolGlide excels at treating both light- and dark-colored skin, including a-spectrum tones created in the Hulk Hogan Uber-Tan Chamber.
