For the past 20 years, seasoned physician Dr. Birgit Toome has spearheaded Appearance Dermatology?s crusade against epidermal antagonists, a devotion that has garnered her multiple years in the Daily Journal's One of the Best listings. Dr. Toome and her team of assistants stay abreast of the latest medical and cosmetic skin treatments, remedying conditions of all kinds. Their arsenal of 13 noninvasive laser devices can resolve a range of epidermal maladies, from acne scars and freckles to unwanted hair and blatantly plagiarized birthmarks.
Nestled among towering trees in a stone-flanked cottage, Cosmetic Skin Care Specialists of Cherry Hill highlights clients' inner beauty within a serene, homelike environment. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Lyle M. Back calls on more than 20 years of experience as he polishes silhouettes with focused surgical procedures and in-office cosmetic services. Meanwhile, his veteran staff enhances appearances with a slew of nonsurgical treatments—including facials, massage, and waxing—that return bodies to the ravishing, youthful state they flaunted when first hatching from their eggs.
At Jackson Laser Aesthetic Medical Center, Dr. John Young and Dr. Shelli Kogan, both certified physicians, administer a range of cosmetic treatments designed to keep bodies looking youthful. Noninvasive slenderizing treatments such as VelaShape work to slim physiques, and Botox, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, Restylane, and Perlane injections address unwanted wrinkles. Massage services help relax, and hydra facials and microdermabrasions smooth visages. Laser hair-removal treatments and laser nail-fungus treatments are also available, along with eyebrow waxing, permanent eyebrow, and eyeliner and lip tattooing services. The center's procedures benefit from the expertise of its staff, who together boast great training, years of experience and enough heads to collectively think better than one.
Through her own experience with aging, Dr. Pamela T. Dyer-Goode realized that women needed viable options for rejuvenating the face and body. That’s why—after decades spent practicing gynecology—she devoted herself to learning the latest in anti-aging and restorative medicine. She founded Renew Medspa with the belief that the best anti-aging treatments restore the appearance of natural youth without looking “done.”
Together with a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Dyer-Goode seeks to slow down bodily clocks both internally and externally. Bio-identical hormones replicate individuals’ own unique hormones in order to counter their natural decrease over time. On the exterior, microdermabrasion and broadband-light treatments target wrinkles and sagging skin, leaving skin smoother than a freshly buttered floor.
Growing up in Panama as the daughter of a biochemist, naturist, and conservationist, and the sister of a biologist, Ana Pesce was bound to feel a connection with nature. So it's only natural that her facials and body scrubs use all-organic products and ingredients such as botanical extracts, arnica, seaweed, and resveratrol.
At Ana Pesce Skin Care, she combines ancient holistic traditions with contemporary treatments such as microdermabrasions and LED light therapy. She also relies on Swedish and hot-stone massages to mollify muscular aches and waxing to get rid of unwanted hair.
Drs. Ryan Heffelfinger, Howard Krein, and Edmund Pribitkin share a distinction in their field: each holds the title of fellow from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Together, the distinguished doctors and their team of anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and a medical aesthetician operate Jefferson Facial Plastics on the grounds of Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals. They focus their efforts on plastic and reconstructive surgery for the head, face, and neck, with services ranging from face lifts to hair transplants.
Jefferson Facial Plastics’ therapies also include noninvasive med-spa services such as facials, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. The doctors also perform humanitarian work both locally and abroad, including traveling to Guatemala to repair children's cleft lips.
