At Eye Excellence, advanced ocular technology enables the staff to diagnose even the rarest eye disorders and then correct them without the use of a blade. Here, the team can remove a cataract with a precise refractive laser, reshape the entire cornea with an excimer laser-aided LASIK procedure, or just make laser-sharp measurements for contacts and designer frame fittings. But these cutting-edge devices would be nothing without the licensed professionals who operate them. Eye Excellence is helmed by Mary T. Green, M.D., Ph.D, a seasoned ophthalmologist and surgeon, and a Fellow on three medical boards. Dr. Green is aided by three therapeutic optometrists and a squad of ophthalmic technicians and opticians, all of whom never stop learning in their quest to better clients' vision.

DiagnosticsforU bypasses the rigmarole of intrusive visits to the doctor's office with thorough and speedy health and hormone panels that test the body's trouble spots. The most popular tests check blood type, kidney function, or general heart health, though teenagers often test to see why their parents don?t understand them. The lab's speed?often offering a turnaround time of 24?48 hours?is rivaled only by its commitment to convenience. Orders can be placed confidentially by phone, and results are returned by mail, email, or fax and shared with a designated physician as desired.
At the Smith Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Kevin Smith??a physician with board certifications in otolaryngology as well as plastic and reconstructive surgery??helps his patients live happier and healthier lives by using advanced medical procedures to either alleviate pain or refine individuals' appearances. Dr. Smith's surgical methods can help accentuate a person's natural features by reshaping noses, ears, foreheads, eyelids, or hairstyles. Additionally, these surgeries can correct the structural issues that antagonize conditions such as sleep apnea, chronic sinus pressure, or migraine headaches. Not every appointment has to include surgery, though. The practice also offers noninvasive treatments that use a cosmetic laser system to improve the skin's overall tone and texture.

The team harnesses an arsenal of Nd:YAG, KTP, and Alexandrite lasers, which they use to treat unwanted hair, tattoos, or signs of aging such as sun spots and molting.
Looking beautiful shouldn't take all day, which is why Apple Lash Studio offers a menu of services that helps clients cut down on their primping time. Mascara can be nixed from one's makeup routine after synthetic-fiber extensions—available in black and glitter-coated styles—add immediate length and volume to lash lines. The naturally curved, semipermanent lashes never interfere with one's other daily activities, including swimming, showering, and sweating, and only take a trained lash specialist up to two hours to apply, one lash at a time, using sterilized equipment. While at the intimate shop, clients can also have unwanted hair quickly removed from their brows, lower legs, and bikini lines.
