Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Stephen Hess and the team at Center City Dermatology tend to both medical and cosmetic skin concerns in a professional clinic setting. They see patients of all ages, from infants to seniors, and treat everything from acne and rosacea to wrinkles and Cheetos-stained fingers. Their specialized treatments include ultraviolet phototherapy to zap psoriasis and eczema, and they use flashes of laser light to target unwanted body hair or broken blood vessels.
Couture Laser & Skin’s founder and director, Dr. Anshul Gambhir, received his medical training at the renowned Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. With his team of aestheticians, he has performed more than 100,000 nonsurgical, cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, ranging from chemical peels to permanent makeup. To diminish wrinkles, he uses dermal fillers or CO2 lasers that resurface skin as they tighten it, and micro-incision liposuction allows him to sculpt and contour bodies without a single surgical stitch or shrink ray. He also harnesses the radiofrequency energy of the Thermage device and uses it to rebuild and remodel collagen, and he scares away unwanted hair with FDA-approved lasers.
By performing nearly 40,000 high-tech procedures every year, the nurses and medical professionals at Look Great MD's four locations help clients fine tune their looks without invasive surgery. They smooth skin with everything from Botox to Reaction, a noninvasive device that combines radio-frequency energy and vacuum therapy to combat cellulite and firm up skin. Reaction treatments also target fat cells, as do CoolSculpting treatments, which kill fat cells by freezing them. Dr. G's physician-supervised weight-loss programs can help clients keep the weight off by teaching them how to reduce calories?all while still eating their favorite foods, not just looking at them longingly and imagining eating them.
Dr. Scott Chapin has built his solid reputation on myriad breast augmentations, tummy tucks, and liposuction treatments performed over the last 15 years. At Chapin Aesthetics, he shepherds a staff with the same stringent work ethic and aim toward improving the way clients look and feel. The clinic offers a number of non-surgical procedures, including skin-smoothing Botox injections and chemical peels. Laser treatments, meanwhile, successfully remove unwanted body hair, acne, spider veins, and tattoos, as well as tattoos of once-loved spider veins that have since broken up.
Back in his army days, Dr. Harold Byer, a graduate of University of Pennsylvania, garnered several science commendations for his work with lasers as he developed laser-protective materials, studied laser physics, and observed the effects of lasers on eyeballs. This enthusiasm for technology led him toward a career in ophthalmology, where he performs refractive and cosmetic surgeries.
Dr. Byer has improved the vision of more than 10,000 LASIK patients to date and has cleared many eyes of cloudy cataracts. Through plastic surgery, he is able to rejuvenate tired eyes with eyelid lifts and with less-invasive cosmetic injections that iron out smile lines, frown lines, and crow's-feet.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Saunders has more than 25,000 surgeries under his belt. His portfolio includes face-lifts, tummy tucks, breast augmentations, and liposuction. He also offers less invasive procedures that smooth fine lines, such as Botox or Dysport injections.
