For 10 years, Dawn Thompson worked beside top dermatologists and plastic surgeons as a surgical assistant. Armed with that experience and her education as an aesthetician, Dawn takes an all-encompassing approach to skincare at Island Skin and Laser, a recipient of a 2012 Seattle Award. Her firsthand experience helps her to personalize treatments to each client using medical-grade skincare products by lines such as SkinCeuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and Revaléskin, none of which contain perfumes or dyes. The aesthetician tackles common skincare issues with treatments ranging from traditional facials to advanced hydrafacials, erbium facials, and photofacials. As a laser pro, Dawn can also shine a light to banish unwanted hairs and bats that are bothering bodies.
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.
Boasting an expert staff led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Justin Piasecki, MD, and Lisa Davenport, RN-BSN, Harbor Plastic Surgery tightens wrinkles and beautifies mugs within their intimate boutique-style practice. Each 60-minute treatment begins with a complimentary cosmetic consultation to determine if the minimally invasive procedure is right for each patient’s crevice-filling needs. Crows' feet, frown folds, and Father Time’s tic-tac-toe games will quickly retreat from facial trenches after an injection of Botox or Dysport––both of which temporarily paralyze the muscles, reducing the unsightly lines that repetitive muscle movement can cause. About two to seven days following injection, countenances emanate smoother rays for three to six months, freeing even the most diligent brows from evidence of past feats of furrowing strength.
