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.
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 Juvéderm 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.
Alongside a highly trained staff, board-certified dermatologist Audrey J. Bruell channels more than 20 years' worth of skincare expertise into ousting unsightly spider veins with Cool Touch laser treatments. Clients can snipe at troublesome squiggles anywhere on their bodies during the 30-minute procedure, which causes minimal discomfort. As a relatively painless alternative to sclerotherapy, the session requires no downtime and results in minimal bruising for all skin types. Multiple appointments may be necessary depending on each patient and the number of Road Closed signs erected for joyriding blood cells.
Each LaVida Massage location is a comfortable place that invites people of all ages, genders, and shoe sizes to unwind and improve their emotional, physical, and immiscible well-beings. During a 60-minute deep tissue massage session, one of LaVida’s skilled deck hands will untangle back knots by applying firm pressure to the deepest layers of soft tissue. Targeting specific muscle groups causes concentrated pain and soreness relief. If your face rather than your muscles are on your mind, opt for the LaVida facial. This therapeutic treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles and gives dermises a deep cleaning.
Traditional red, white, and blue barber stripes accent each of Carson Coonce's three barber shops—from the old wooden sign outside the original 1955 Plymouth shop, to the scissor-shaped awning at the Livonia location—and the interior echoes the same classic barbershop feel. Amid a casual atmosphere, a friendly staff made up of Carson's children and grandchildren and unrelated, yet equally talented, barbers provides clients with a menu of affordable services that range from men's beard trims and hot shaves to haircuts for men, women, and children.
The stylists at Bashamy’s Salon & Spa boast a portfolio of dramatic styles that range from edgy mohawks of tousled curls to sleek, asymmetrical bobs streaked with color. But these 'dos needn’t come at the expense of healthy hair—the staff also treats strands to the deep hydration of silkening Moroccanoil treatments. They can deftly handle natural hair that has never been processed or work to correct years of damage from straightening, extending, or working as Rapunzel’s stunt double.
