Dr. Sandra Bouzaglou was drawn to her present career while on a plastic-surgery rotation at Loyola University in Chicago. There, she learned how cosmetic and reconstructive surgery could help improve patients' self-confidence. Dr. Bouzaglou’s experience moved her to open Kentucky's first accredited outpatient plastic-surgery practice, The SurgiCenter, which is located within The Center for Plastic Surgery. Here, Dr. Bouzaglou and her medical team restore and enhance bodies by offering breast augmentation, leaving tummies flatter, and skin thinner with liposuction. The team also performs dramatic nonsurgical med-spa treatments, including laser hair removal, tattoo removal and micropigmentation with a VersaPulse laser, and fat-reducing contouring with CoolSculpting.
Dr. Monica Hall, Sonata's beauty-bestower-in-chief, earned accolades as a general surgeon before shifting the focus of her laser sight solely on reconstructive procedures and cosmetic care. Microdermabrasion scrubs away dead skin cells to make room for the growth of fresh young cells. This facial power wash is effective at minimizing fine eye lines and large pores, and, with several treatments, it can even reduce deep-rooted dermal discoloration caused by the sun or the makeup still caked on from childhood beauty pageants. Set in Sonata's serene skin-scrubbing suites, this treatment takes about 30 minutes, and recovery is usually marked by nothing more severe than redness and a mild sting that may last 24 hours. After treatment, replenish your moisture reservoirs by caking buffed areas in cosmetic cream or the tears of a phoenix.
Navy vets Dr. Jan J. Weisberg, M.D., and Melanie Weisberg team up to fight dermal discoloration with PCA products and skin-evening microdermabrasion. During the noninvasive 30-minute treatment, a certified beauty booster gently cleanses and exfoliates the visage to uncover the fresh face or pile of gold coins below. After the skin scrubbing escorts dead cells off of the premises, a moisturizing peel works to deeply hydrate arid skinscapes. Patients can leave the Weisbergs' office with smoother and brighter skin, and may help diminish the looks of fine lines, scars, and cheekbone tattoos.
Refined Image of Northern Kentucky's laser tag team is composed of medical technicians overseen by no fewer than five physicians, who set their sights on the eradication of unwanted hair and small veins on the legs and feet. Technicians handle GentleMax laser equipment with precision, delivering a concentrated dose of heat deep into trouble spots, as skin's upper layers stay chill thanks to a cooling burst of cryogen. Though the high-intensity light shows no mercy toward age spots, sun damage, and skin blemishes, it yields only mild discomfort, with pulses that are generally compared to a rubber-band snap.
The team of technicians at Cosmetic Laser Institute helps heal damaged skin and beautify complexions with more than 20 laser-powered procedures overseen by University of Cincinnati–trained dermatologist Anthony Mamari, MD. Focused on client comfort, Dr. Mamari and his staff work to banish blemishes and age spots.
Dr. Tom Haas might be the one examining clients at Imaage Cosmetic Surgery Center, but there’s a chance they might recognize his face as well. The board-certified plastic surgeon has made multiple television appearances, been featured in numerous magazine articles, and offered advice in several educational cosmetic surgery videos. Readers of LEO Weekly named Dr. Haas the area’s best plastic surgeon in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the center also earned the publication's best spa award in 2011. The state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery suite puts client satisfaction first, offering a discrete exit for patient privacy and a comfortable waiting area for loved ones. Most procedures can be performed under Twilight anesthesia, which reduces undesirable side effects such as grogginess and mid-session snoring. The center's registered nurse and licensed aestheticians also perform a variety of nonsurgical services, including laser facial treatments, peels, and body-contouring VelaShape sessions.
