Before starting his own practice, Dr. Edward J. Love obtained a medical degree from Tulane University and completed a plastic surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Now at the helm of The Plastic Surgery Institute, Dr. Ed and his staff help beautify complexions and alter appearances with a full range of skincare and surgical procedures. Facials start with a soothing massage to melt away tension before steam, moisturizers, and masks clear pores of dirt and debris. Peels employ acidic solutions to remove the cracked and wrinkled top layers of epidermises, and microdermabrasion treatments utilize a diamond-encrusted device to buff away scars, dry skin, and Halloween masks of yore. For a more permanent change, clients can undergo a breast lift or reduction, facelift, or liposuction. Treatments can address any part of the face or torso with a complete reconstruction or minor adjustment.
Grace Facial Oasis's owner and experienced aesthetician Barbara Mitchell vivifies tired visages with exfoliating facials and cleansing microdermabrasions. Clients can swiftly resurface skin with an express facial, which employs aromatherapy to soothe clients and tend to neglected nostrils. A relaxing steam treatment—facilitated by lymphatic drainage to further flush out toxins—routs out bacteria and impurities. The treatment exfoliates the visage to slough off dead skin and professional wrestling masks. Further pamper pores with ultrasonic crystal-free microdermabrasion, during which the aesthetician expertly scans the skin to transform sluggish mugs into refreshed façades in less than 50 minutes. The inviting confines of Grace Facial Oasis surround clients with warm lighting, neutral walls, and verdant plants that gently hum relaxing Kenny G quotes.
The staff at UAMS Weight Loss and Metabolic Conrol have helped hundreds of patients shed unhealthy weight. They shy from calling their system a diet; instead they give clients the tools they need—personalized treatment plans, classes in nutrition and weight maintenance, coaching—to have long-term success. They can also tailor programs to patients with diabetes or prediabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
Lipo-Light Body Sculpting's professionals help patients stubborn lose inches without entering an operating room or gym. Its signature service, the Lipo-Light treatment, uses 16 laser pads to produce light that permeates the skin to target pesky fat cells across the body. As the cells shrink, patients lose inches.
Although Patrice Collins works alongside a team of medical doctors and laser specialists, she wields her own secret healing weapon: massage therapy. The licensed practitioner soothes stress and assuages sore or injured muscles with a range of massage techniques, including the taps, kneads, and clogging routines of Swedish massage and the concentrated pressure of the deep-tissue technique. Whereas Patrice deals with tissues, joints, and muscles, the rest of the SkinStar staff works on aesthetics, erasing wrinkles and tattoos with noninvasive lasers or nixing uncontrollable acne with a Spectra Peel.
Dr. Brent Scroggins wants to help people feel more comfortable in their skin. That's why he employs Zerona, a patented body-contouring system that uses low-level lasers to zap unwanted fat from hips, thighs, and waists. The process, which results in visible inch loss, has received myriad media accolades, appearing on The Dr. Oz Show, Extra, The Doctors, and Nightline.
