Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat and his highly trained and experienced Botox injection technicians smoothes brows, de-furrows frown lines, and scatters crow’s feet with Botox injections. After an informative, free consultation, patients recline in a chair or bed as the doctor determines where to place the injections and which eyebrow can best pull off highlights. No anesthesia is required during the 10-minute procedure, but clients can request a cold pack to numb soon-to-be-smoothed faces before the practitioner injects tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into facial furrows. Within as little as a few days, the solution eases stubborn wrinkles' grasp on foreheads and brow lines, diminishing their appearance and late-night dance parties for up to four months. Clients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
After receiving degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University, Dr. Samson Lee teamed up with Dr. Alice Kuntz, a Stanford University and University of California School of Medicine at San Francisco graduate listed by Seattle magazine as one of the top doctors of 2011. Together with licensed aesthetician Bethany Capodanno, these board-certified surgeons operate a pair of offices where they perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries with a focus on facial and neck rejuvenation.
The technicians at Sound Body and Face specialize in three aesthetic areas: ultrasound cavitation, facials, and waxing. In a process that has been featured on Dr. Oz, non-invasive body sculpting-treatments send ultrasound waves to penetrate the skin and break down the contents of fat cells. In doing so, the process can render slimmer silhouettes as this waste leaves the body via the lymphatic system. Further north, facials comprise cleansing and massages, and waxing treatments oust excess fuzz from brows, lips, and chins.
At Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center, owner and triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Donald Wortham uses his expertise and certifications in cosmetic, facial plastic and reconstructive, and head-and-neck surgery to sculpt and contour bodies during a range of surgical procedures. Because plastic surgery is a weighty decision, the doctor strives to inform each patient about the details about their desired service and tailor each procedure to the patient receiving it. A thorough presurgical consultation not only helps the patient understand their procedure, but also informs the physician about the patient's aesthetic concerns. With this knowledge, the surgeon devises a custom treatment plan and presents it to the patient through detailed discussion and spirited rounds of Pictionary.
Since 1996, a medical aesthetician has helmed Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center's full-service med spa. To ensure clients get the best effects, the aesthetician personally researches and evaluates many skincare lines before offering them for purchase. They remove unwanted hair with a LightSheer laser and perform a slate of Aromatic spa facials, clinical chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments.
The licensed and certified technicians at American Image wage a battle against baldness in men and women alike with a quartet of nonsurgical solutions. Grafts take human hair and temporarily adhere it to the scalp for a mane that looks and feels as natural as Mother Nature’s beauty. Ultratress extensions add length and volume to sparse pates, and laser hair therapy (LHT) promotes blood flow to the scalp and slows hair loss in many. For some, the experts here recommend topical or oral remedies, such as Rogaine, Propecia, or angel hair pasta supplements to treat weakened strands.
Medical Director Dr. Marilyn Tompkins, ARNP, busies Radiant MedSpa's staff with an array of services that refine skin surfaces. Injectables such as Botox and Sculptra free faces of wrinkles or circles around the eyes that reveal age. IPL photofacials and fractional skin-resurfacing treatments leave skin as brilliant as an Einstein wrapped in reflective tape; the spa's laser systems can also halt hair production in follicles or zap away spider veins. Glycolic or lactic acids reveal youthful skin and fight blemishes during chemical peels, and HCG weight-loss programs bolster weight loss with a combination of booster shots, protein shakes, and vitamins.
