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.
No one knows your body better than you do. That's why the licensed massage therapists at Channels of Healing focus on you—your words and your history. Each session begins with a consultation to discuss your health concerns and goals. After these elements are accounted for, the therapist can fill in the gaps with nutrition education, personal training, and a custom blend of soothing bodywork. Massage techniques may include focused neuromuscular pressure therapy or gentle lymphatic-drainage techniques to ease tension.
The experienced skin cosseters at Beauty and Beyond Aesthetics keep the focus on façades with relaxing facials and exfoliating chemical peels, moving southward only for body-waxing services. These aestheticians know that apart from ingesting glow sticks, the best way to get a luminous visage is proper skincare, which they help to facilitate with antioxidant-fortified serums from Vital C, Ormedic, Clear Cell, and Daily Defense. Their chemical peels lift expired skin cells to reveal healthy layers with coats of glycolic, lactic, and kojic acid and fight a number of dermis problems, such as acne, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. All of the spa’s soothing services take place in a mellow environment designed to relax stressed minds and coax bodies into frazzle-free states more effectively than a nap on a cotton-candy pile.
Nationally certified massage therapist Vana of Comfort Cove Massage designs custom bodywork sessions that account for her clients' individual needs. Vana begins each treatment with an assessment that helps her design a plan to remove muscle discomfort. She then begins one of her three signature treatments: a chair massage, a hot-stone massage, or a therapeutic massage that blends techniques from various modalities. Therapeutic motions induce a sense of calm, whereas an optional heated massage table and massage oils deepen relaxation. During the hot-stone massage, Vana moves hot stones across the back, alternately kneading with the stones in hand and stationing them in place for longer heat concentration. At the conclusion of each service, clients receive a warm-towel treatment for the neck, face, or any other area with lingering stiffness.
In 1986, Dr. Vincinet Pennipede, O.D was fresh out of the military and opening up his first office off of Highway 69. There, he put in long hours and built a base of clients. Today, he oversees a team of eight optometrists and 35 qualified employees at five offices in the Kansas City area. Patrons peruse each warmly-lit furnished studio's collection of frames from high-end labels such as Silhouette and Coach. In-office labs create futuristic lenses of high-index plastic or hybrid Trivex quickly for patrons who need to return to work or judge a beauty pageant for snowflakes. Children protect their new specs with the store's Kid's Promise warranty, and adults consult with experienced doctors on the benefits of refractive surgery and restorative treatments for aging eyes.
