?Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,? says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 17 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
AesthetiCare employs a highly experienced staff of medical professionals and certified aestheticians and utilizes up-to-date technology, including 18 FDA-approved lasers. The five-step medical microdermabrasion begins with a deep cleansing to remove dirt and cheese dip from pores. Next, stainless-steel diamond- encrusted wands remove dead layers of skin to reveal healthy dermis with no downtime. One of four light chemical peels assists in a deep exfoliation and skin-tightening treatment. BiO2 Oxy-Mist is applied, which uses a formula of amino acids, vitamins, and oxygen to help the face heal more efficiently. The microdermabrasion treatment's bell is rung with a facial moisturizer, which encourages new skin to emerge in a three-piece suit of radiance, with an improved appearance in regards to fine lines, scarring, sun spots, black heads, clogged pores, and hyperpigmentation.
The Great Sea of Regeneration can only ebb and flow so quickly when it comes to healing and breathing fresh life into your shore of skin. Today's Groupon operates faster than a metaphorical body of water to soften and beautify your skin with a microdermabrasion, IPL chemical peel, or hair-removal treatment from Rajeunir Medical Spa for $29 (an up to $150 value). Don't waste your time attempting to grow new skin using a microwave and fruit leathers when you can lovingly tend your existing outer layer.
RSVP Med Spa's director Dr. Ruiz leads a team of RNs, laser technicians, and aestheticians on a laser- and cosmetics-driven quest to rejuvenate skin. After entering the spacious, chic lobby, clients step into private rooms where lasers kill hair follicles, the Venus Freeze's magnetic fields and radio frequency tighten skin, and HydraFacials leave faces more radiant than the Hydra after it slew Hercules. Organic ingredients wait to escape the confines of RSVP Med Spa's collection of skincare products from RSVP Med Spa Cosmeceuticals, Neocutis, SkinCeuticals, Epionce, Colorescience, and NIA24.
Dr. Gregory Chambon draws on his extensive medical experience—including a stint as the Chief of Family Practice at St. Luke's Hospital—to guide his staff of medical professionals. The team enhances their clients' natural beauty with injectable treatments, Smart Lipo procedures, and medical-grade skincare. With the use of versatile lasers, technicians can reduce unwanted hair, remove tattoos, and shut down varicose veins like a high-school party on Commissioner Gordon's block. Meanwhile, Neograft treatments help restore lost hair without surgery or scarring.
Board-certified Dr. John Russell safely blots out body doodles on any skin type with the FDA-approved YAG Q-switched laser in sessions that last about five minutes. During a free consultation, staffers explain the removal process and employ the Kirby-Desai scale to calculate the number of treatments necessary for complete removal, based on the ink's pigment, depth, hue, and invisible-ink content. The YAG laser shatters pigments into teeny particles so that the body can naturally evacuate them. Topical anesthetic and gusts of cool air from a Zimmer Chiller device diminish the laser's stings, which are akin to a rubber band's snap. Warm towels put clients at ease before employees cap off appointments by bandaging over fading ink and applying ice. After 5–15 sessions, clients flaunt immaculate epidermal terrains, generally free of scarring and barbecue-sauce stains that were mistaken for tattoos.
