Headed by veteran plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten, Central Ohio Plastic Surgery beautifies bodies with a suite of advanced cosmetic procedures. Botox treatments use injections of purified protein to paralyze wrinkle-causing muscles, smoothing out the epidermal furrows that can often obscure detailed facial tattoos. All procedures are performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon fully trained in administering injections safely and professionally. Appointments take about half an hour, and the injections themselves take only five minutes, allowing patients to defeat unwanted wrinkles during a lunch break or the boring part of a favorite feature-length infomercial. Full effects are usually apparent after two weeks, and the results last up to four to six months.
Dr. Gina Nichols, a board-certified physician, focuses her attention on family care, medical weight-loss programs, and facial rejuvenation services. She safely boosts patients’ metabolisms with Vitamin B12 injections, and helps dissolve fat cells using LipoDissolve injections. Other non-invasive injections include Botox Cosmetic, which smoothes crows feet and frown lines.

Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Before your massage, the therapist will place a hot towel on your back. You may listen to your choice of music while you lie on the heated table. Afterward, a mirror makes it easy to check your makeup and hair.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
Swedish massage provides a welcome release from the stresses of a busy life. Prenatal massage allows the mother-to-be to relax and eases the discomforts of a changing body. Trigger point (a form of deep-tissue massage) relieves the taut, shortened muscles challenged by overwork or trauma. Clients love receiving massages because they realize that if they are going to give their best care to others, they need to take care of themselves also.
Rinkov Eyecare sends their customers into the world with a clearer view by affixing customized lenses into their wide selection of designer frames. The eyewear emporium can fit Cole Haan ($175 with lenses included) or BCBG ($175 with lenses included) frames with prescription polycarbonate or plastic lenses, both materials superior to prescription bubble wrap. Clients can have their frames fitted with prescription sunglass lenses to keep their vision focused while facing the sun's rays. Rinkov Eyecare Center accepts clients on Saturdays and during evening hours at most of their locations to accommodate work, school, and storm-chasing schedules. Although this Groupon is not valid toward eye examinations, Rinkov's optometrists can also evaluate the vision of patients lacking a current prescription for an additional fee.
Staff members at A Touch of Beauty Salon and Spa pamper their clients from head to toe with treatments ranging from modern haircuts to essential-oil-infused pedicures. During hair services, stylists revamp coifs with haircuts and braided cornrows, and brighten tresses with all-over color or highlights. They also adorn locks with sew-in extensions, quick weaves, and custom-made wigs, ideal for adding instant glamour or thoroughly confusing the mailman. On the spa end of services, technicians customize facials to each client’s skin type. Body scrubs and wraps infused with African shea butter moisturize the skin, and manicures and pedicures pair with paraffin dips and peppermint oil to soften paws.
Vision Professionals offers designer frames and up-to-the-minute lens technologies for standard and hard-to-fit prescriptions. Standard lenses are crafted from Trivex, a lightweight and hard-to-scratch surface, putting stunt doubles and badger keepers at ease. Give naturally entrancing eyes an extra kick with frames from Kate Spade, Coach, Tag Heuer, or Oakley (designer frames from $199).
