Dr. Vinita Sharma, a board-certified OB/GYN, tucks more than 25 years of experience into her lab coat. Along with her crew of experienced technicians, she provides clients with a lengthy list of aesthetic services, each beginning with a complimentary consultation.
Patients looking to smooth wrinkles from their smile canvases may choose Botox treatments or Juv?derm dermal fillers, or make use of Dr. Sharma?s Cynosure Elite MPX laser system. Unlike traditional intense-pulsed-light (IPL) lasers, the office?s Cynosure laser combines IPL technology with the skills of two laser wavelengths. This light-powered trifecta quickly and effectively restores skin of any shade to a more youthful appearance. The single system can be utilized for myriad purposes?permanently ridding bodies of unwanted hairs, removing spider veins from legs and faces, and reversing the signs of aging and sun damage, such as sun spots that look like the face of your grandfather clock.

Laser aesthetics might seem like a recent phenomenon, but PHR Centers' staff members have been using lasers to address clients' cosmetic needs since 1981. This gives them experience far beyond what you might expect in their industry. Dr. Amy DeRosa?a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon?oversees the centers' teams of registered nurses, licensed aestheticians, and laser technicians, who work together to treat a wide range of concerns by using the latest equipment and techniques.
By focusing on nonsurgical solutions to common aesthetic issues, PHR Centers can grant clients dramatic effects without the downtime of plastic surgery or the risks of time travel. The experts call on the Palomar Vectus cosmetic laser system to eradicate unwanted hair while cooling the skin for a more comfortable experience, and use Vaser Lipolysis, SmartLipo, and radio-frequency-based Vanquish treatments to contour clients' bodies by targeting stubborn fat deposits. To achieve a more youthful appearance, Deka SmartXide DOT therapy helps improve skin tone and texture by stimulating collagen production, and Botox, dermal fillers, and chemical peels work to soften wrinkles and rejuvenate the complexion.
Jeff Glebe studied massage at the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy. After graduating in 2001, he opened Michigan Therapeutic Massage to help people get through their body aches and discomforts and lead fuller lives. His first order of business was to assemble a staff of nationally certified therapists who also honed their skills at accredited institutions and in the real world. All male and female therapists are graduates from the Ann Arbor Institute of Massage Therapy and are nationally certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. All that education shows during massage sessions that aim to decrease muscle pain, soothe tension, and make clients' elbows jealous of their backs. In addition to their talents at the massage table, the group also spends time continuing their studies to stay on top of evolving techniques.
