At Jackson Laser Aesthetic Medical Center, Dr. John Young and Dr. Shelli Kogan, both certified physicians, administer a range of cosmetic treatments designed to keep bodies looking youthful.

Laser hair-removal treatments and laser nail-fungus treatments are also available, along with eyebrow waxing, permanent eyebrow, and eyeliner and lip tattooing services. The center's procedures benefit from the expertise of its staff, who together boast great training, years of experience and enough heads to collectively think better than one.

The specialists at APS Day Spa focus on caring for both the skin and the tense muscles that lurk beneath it. With treatments such as the Clarisonic skin cleaning system?which nudges impurities out of pores with a gentle massaging motion?they can oust infections and prevent blemishes from forming in the first place. Massage therapists coax tension out of the body with Swedish, deep-tissue, and foot-refreshing modalities, as well as a technique that employs smooth stones heated via water or erasers warmed with friction.
As a board-certified surgeon who specializes in minimally invasive cosmetic surgery, Dr. Adam Goldstein, along with his fellow board-certified vascular surgeons, knew he wanted to use the latest in laser therapy techniques to contour bodies and eradicate varicose veins. Dr. Goldstein, the founder of ScuLpt Cosmetic Surgery, says he was drawn to SmartLipo because it allows doctors to not only contour bodies by liquefying and suctioning out fat but also to do it in a way that is less invasive than traditional liposuction, which can often result in extensive bleeding. This enables patients to have speedier recoveries and get back to normal activities, such as work or counting the seconds until the End Times, in a few days.
The vascular surgeons on staff rid legs of ropey varicose vessels with ultrasound-monitored endovenous laser therapy (ELVT). This technique closes off painful blood conduits with laser energy, clearing up the dark veins on legs with very little downtime.

Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
I am a board-certified physician with additional training in aesthetic treatments, such as Botox and fillers. I am also highly trained in Bariatric Medicine (the specialty of weight-management and nutrition). Our staff are all certified by Obagi Skin Care, SkinMedica Skin Care. Myself and Madison are both certified in the CoolSculpting treatment, which removes unwanted stubborn body fat.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a patient?
"You have changed my life." We hear this almost on a weekly basis. Whether it is from a patient who was unhappy with their appearance or a weight-loss patient who has lost a lot of weight. Seeing someone with a low self-esteem walk around with confidence is truly rewarding.
What steps do you take to make your patients feel at ease?
Our office is very warm and inviting. We've been told it feels more like a spa than a doctor's office. Our staff ensures you are comfortable while waiting for the doctor. We offer hot tea, cool bottled water, or for patients to just relax in our lounge-like waiting room.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our office is unique in that we have a board-certified physician who not only owns the practice, but sees patients at their visits. We are the only area practice that specializes in medically supervised weight management, aesthetic treatments, and CoolSculpting.
Dr. David Weiss, a podiatrist and board-certified foot surgeon, relies on his years of experience as he mends fractured and ailing feet at Weiss Foot and Ankle Center. He not only tends to bunions and diabetic wounds, but also to cosmetic flaws, such as nail fungus, warts, and scars. He uses the Cutera GenesisPlus laser to zap these nail and skin blemishes, helping patients avoid the side effects of oral medications and garlic aroma of folk remedies.
