A longtime resident of Windsor, Dr. Patrick Smith, M.D. returned to the area after completing medical school and opened a family practice in 1987. He enjoyed the work but longed to transition into dermatology, for which he held both a passion and professional training. Years later, he assembled a team of estheticians and opened his namesake skincare clinic: Dr. P.X. Smith Medical Cosmetics.
Open for more than seven years, the clinic offers cosmetic and medical-grade services including Botox and Juvederm, laser skin-resurfacing treatments, and mole removal from both faces and lawns. Dr. Smith performs all medical consultations and directly supervises treatments performed by his highly trained staff.
As a skincare expert, the doctor is dedicated to educating his community about the dangers of excessive sun exposure. He worked at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre before starting his family practice and coordinated the Mark Hunt Melanoma Awareness Fund-Raising Walk to heighten awareness of skin cancer, particularly malignant melanoma.

For nearly 20 years, Sun Tan City has been keeping its customers golden-skinned with a full complement of tanning beds and custom spray tans. A retail section stocked with tanning lotions from Pro Tan, Brown Sugar, and Supre Tan helps skin retain its glow between sessions in one of the salon’s six levels of tanning bed.
Chili Pepper's Tanning Inc. Megastores’ trophy case is getting full—in addition to being named one of Detroit’s best tanning salons three times in a row by CityVoter, it has acquired accolades from Local 4 and CBS Detroit, which commends its spray tanning. Its growing awards reflect Chili Pepper’s growth; since opening in 2002, Chili Pepper’s has expanded to 15 locations, spreading across Detroit like the buffalo pox.
In every location, five levels of tanning beds turn skin a sun-kissed gold or deep bronze. Mystic Tan sessions let customers avoid things associated with booth and outdoor tanning—UV rays and pool lifeguards who push you in the water to practice saving you. No matter which option they choose, patrons can turn to knowledgeable Smart Tan–certified staff members who help clients decide what is best for their tanning goals.
