Under the supervision of a board-certified plastic surgeon, aestheticians at The Plastic Surgery Clinic use IPL lasers to quickly and thoroughly remove patches of unwanted hair as clients lie comfortably atop body-length treatment chairs. Although treatments typically conclude within 15 to 30 minutes, initial appointments may last up to an hour, so clients have ample time to fill out paperwork and longingly gaze into the receptionist's eyes. During each session, specialists scan the skin with intense pulsed light that absorbs into the melanin of hair follicles, destroying them at the root. The application of antibiotic ointments and moisturizers follows the treatment, soothing away skin irritation while clients sip on complimentary soda, coffee, or hot chocolate. Visits must be spaced three to four weeks apart to account for varying cycles of hair growth and trade restrictions with the planet Xenon where the laser fuel is purchased.
With more than 20 years of pampering under its salon-service belt, Blondie's bolsters fading finger façades with a bevy of buffing options. The 25-minute Shellac manicure helps protect nails from scratches and chips for up to two weeks, gifting hands a consequence-free window for putting on a jagged steel finger-puppet extravaganza. The digital indulgence starts with a routine comparable to a normal manicure, including shaping and a slathering of fresh polish, after which nails are dried one by one under a UV lamp. Roughly 10 minutes of heat treatment cures fingertips, readying them to hit the streets or perform mesmerizing feats of sign language.
Dr. Dan G. Severa and the team at Revelation Medical Skin Care treat patients' skin scourges, including acne, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, with a menu of medical-spa services. Dr. Severa, educated at Creighton School of Medicine and the recipient of two patient-care awards on Vitals.com, injects facial furrows with beauty solutions and shoots unsightly spider veins and omnipresent tax collectors full of vanishing serum. Microdermabrasion and photofacials fade dermal imperfections, and laser hair removal blasts body fuzz over the course of several sessions. The team also provides general and preventive medical care, immunizations, and treatment for depression and anxiety.
After more than two decades as a family physician, Dr. Carla Phipps pursued training in laser aesthetics, Botox and collagen fillers, liposuction, and fat transfer. With these cosmetic techniques in her toolbelt, she joined forces with aesthetician Brittany Rivera to build a toolbelt factory, and then to found Laser & Cosmetic Center. The med spa's catalog of noninvasive treatments includes injectables, clinical facials, and body contouring.
Certified by the American Board of Dermatology, Dr. Lee R. Bittenbender and his staff rejuvenate clients with a full array of cosmetic and dermatological procedures, from Botox to microdermabrasion. The noninvasive microdermabrasion equipment smoothes and soothes tired skin by gently exfoliating the top layers with a laser-cut diamond head, a more sensible option than taking your face to the Sahara Desert in a windstorm for a quick skin blast. Afterward, skin is softer and rejuvenated, as the microdermabrasion can stimulate collagen production while seeking to reduce fine lines, age spots, and acne scars.
The dedicated doctors of The Aesthetics Center wield the latest noninvasive technologies in their quest to rewind and renew skin. The Libra microdermabrasion treatment is designed to track down dead skin cells with corundum crystals, and can sweep away the expired epidermis at a high velocity while polishing the skull jacket's surface. In about an hour, the powerful treatment reduces fine lines and leaves complexions beaming brighter than a pair of just-married glow sticks. The skin-salvaging procedure can also slough off dark pigmentation that tends to stubbornly loiter on faces like an unemployed roommate camped out on the couch. The Aesthetics Center opens its friendly doors to clients seven days a week and features flexible scheduling.
