Board-certified dermatologist Harry Sharata, M.D. PhD is a man of many talents. Not only does he serve as clinical associate professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, but he is also the medical director for both Advanced Dermatology, Inc. and Madison Skin & Research Inc., a research clinic that conducts clinical trials on dermatological therapies. In his work at Advanced Dermatology, Inc., he leads a staff of nurses, physician’s assistants, and pharmacists through medical dermatology procedures that target eczema, skin cancer, and acne and cosmetic dermatology treatments. These include laser hair-removal as well as other outpatient procedures such as photorejuvenation, glycolic chemical peels, and Botox, which noninvasively target signs of aging including wrinkles, age spots, and lips that continually whistle “Ragtime Gal.”
Bella Medica's alternative cosmetic treatments address a host of bodily concerns—from aging and loose skin to smoking habits and weight gain—using natural, toxin-free green spa practices. Tackling sun-damaged and acne-prone skin, the anti-aging skin Medica Vitalize chemical peel aims to seize youth back from Father Time, throwing hourglass sand in his eyes and forcing him to eat minute rice. The peel employs a blend of retinoic, resorcinol, beta-hydroxy, and alpha-hydroxy acids to help smooth the texture of facial skin by removing its outer layers and innermost repressed feelings. One of the only superficial peels suitable for all skin types, the Vitalize peel incurs little to no downtime after treatment.
Brad Olsen Tan has been bronzing bodies since 1965 and houses an army of tanning beds, available in six levels, as well as airbrush and Mystic Tan technology. The to-be tanned can choose to stand or lay in bronzing booths, letting UV lamps shine down on epidermises to infuse a glow as shiny and coppery as a collection of freshly polished pennies. Bronze-seekers can also opt to achieve sun-smooched skin in minutes with a Mystic Tan, which covers skin with a coppery coating of aloe-vera bronzers. This tan-ifying mist may take a few hours to become visible on skin, but the process is complete in less than one minute, or about the time it takes to say "Mystic Tan" backward.
Dr. William D. Yates can empathize with patients afflicted by receding hairlines—he used to be one of them. A transplant not only restored his hair, but also rejuvenated his waning self-confidence. He enacts the same physical and mental transformation in his patients with surgical and nonsurgical attacks against hair loss. The treatments range from hair transplants to stimulation of tired hair follicles with low-level lasers.
Under the direction of Dr. Thomas Heggen, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., cosmetic surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Ob-Gyn, the veteran staff at Your Medicos specializes in plastic surgery, med-spa treatments, and family medicine infused with holistic healing techniques. Medical experts stage extreme makeovers and help bodies fit back into their high-school footie pajamas with liposuction or face-lifts and use noninvasive laser treatments with FDA-approved tools to expel unwanted body hair and tighten skin. Physician-grade skincare products from Glytone rejuvenate countenances and European ultrasound-cavitation technology slenderizes bodies. Your Medicos' technicians also draw upon chiropractic services, Eastern-inspired acupuncture, and herbal medicine to bolster the traditional Western healing technique of wrapping patients in the U.S. flag and singing the national anthem until they feel better.
Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian has not only been in the lipo biz since 1981 but also has authored a textbook on the topic and developed several new surgical tools of the trade. Dr. T., who has dubbed himself "Lipodoc" and is backed up by Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute's team, specializes in all manner of fat removal and relocation, both by traditional means and with modern laser technology. He also wipes out wrinkles, veins, unwanted hair, and passé tattoos, and he is able to bring his treatments to many, since he speaks five languages, including Armenian, Arabic, and pigeon.
