As a board-certified anesthesiologist and licensed aesthetic physician who has even trained in cosmetic acupuncture, Dr. Roxana B. Kerns, M.D. is well-versed in nearly every type of anti-aging treatment. There's one she doesn't offer, however?invasive surgery. That's because she's mastered a range of techniques that accomplish what was once only achieved through surgical procedures.
For example, instead of subjecting patients to the pain of rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty, Dr. Kerns is able to smooth out the nose's profile with injectable fillers and banish dark circles under the eyes with fat-transfer techniques and laser treatments. She was also selected as an expert injector by the National Laser Institute, making her uniquely qualified to administer Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections that target fine lines on the face. Orchid Aesthetics also features an arsenal of laser technology designed to mend aesthetic issues of all types, including wrinkles, sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, unwanted hair, and spider veins.
In her quest to stamp out sun damage, Dr. Kerns recently developed her own line of organic skincare formulas that hydrate, boost collagen production, and reflect UV rays away from the face and onto the nearest pool party.
Thomas A Law, MD, has made a name for himself with his steady, precise hands. The honorably discharged major in the US Army Medical Corps and former piano player entered the Army Reserve in 1980 and later went on to become a flight surgeon and an emergency-room physician with the Army. He even earned the expert-marksman award at the pistol range on his first attempt. Now, Dr. Law uses his nimble fingers to transplant hair.
He has developed an international reputation for his meticulous and creative approach to hair transplantation. Using either one of two methods depending on the client's needs. Dr. Law can harvest individual follicles with the follicular-unit-extraction technique or surgically remove and divide thin strips of hair with the follicular-unit-transplantation process. Both methods take advantage of a horseshoe-shaped donor area at the back of the head where an abundance of "lifelong" hair follicles are typically found. Much like a BFF necklace from his best friend, these follicles are always there on virtually every man.
Award-winning physician Harry Schanzer draws from an extensive arsenal of credentials that includes more than 40 years of medical experience, more than 150 published articles, and time spent as the director of Mount Sinai Hospital's Vascular Laboratory in New York. Together with his talented staff, Dr. Schanzer works to quell a wide array of venous diseases, using his vast knowledge to recommend suitable treatment plans. Staffers might suggest high-tech laser ablation treatments for varicose and spider veins or propose sclerotherapy or microphlebectomy, which, like performing an appendectomy on an ant, requires tiny surgical incisions. Each treatment is designed to enhance patients' comfort and confidence, and can thwart more troublesome medical issues from arising in the future.
When Shawn Rogers enlisted in the Army he was 50 pounds overweight. Intense training and discipline helped him trim down and gave his life a sense of purpose. But after he left the service, he slipped back into old habits by neglecting his health for the sake of a higher income. Fast forward to September 11, 2001. The tragedy inspired Shawn to leave his job and build the life he truly wanted. His sense of urgency led him to become a personal trainer as well. After working in several gyms, he opened Your Body Your Machine.
Shawn's clientele runs the gamut from nurses and correction officers to Diane Sawyer, co-anchor of Good Morning America. When she asked him to help some of her staff members, he launched the GMA Fit Club. This program helped the show's staffers lose up to 60 pounds and 10 inches.
