A lifelong Cincinnatian, Dr. Chris Balsly has no shame mentioning that "the Bengals make him cry every Sunday." To balance this out, Dr. Balsly has devoted his life to making others' smiles brighter at his private practice, Trailside Dental Care. There, he and his staff perform services that range from routine cleanings and teeth-whitening treatments to root canals and removing wisdom teeth before they offer any bad advice.
Dermatology & Skin Care Associates' dedicated aesthetician refurnishes clients' faces with soothing facials and gentle chemical peels. Epidermal experts customize each one-hour relaxation facial according to skin type, the patron's needs, and each pore's astrological sign. Wielding handpicked SkinMedica products, the professional mug refresher cleanses the face and the neck before exfoliating and massaging each area, aiming to leave skin rejuvenated and clients well rested. With the optional Illuminize peel, aestheticians conjure smooth skin to the surface from out of a silky, youthful hat. Employing gentle acidic formulas and natural ingredients such as bark extract, the peel can tighten the visage, reduce the effects of sun damage, wrinkles, and fine lines, and improve mild hyperpigmentation by doling out a snack and a nap to overactive skin tones.
With more than 30 years of experience eradicating veins, Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center's expert staff administers quick and precise spider-vein treatments that rejuvenate epidermal surfaces. During sclerotherapy sessions, two CCs of saline solution traverse each client's entire network of veins, treating multiple areas simultaneously rather than tracing out individual veins or hypnotizing blood streams to imbue them with arachnophobia. Each treatment requires less than an hour to permanently diminish unwanted veins, though some patients may require multiple visits. Wintertime treatments help ensure that veins vanish by spring, so patrons can proudly display their unblemished limbs at outdoor cookouts or speed-dating sessions with single bears recently roused from hibernation.

Dr. Mandell-Brown and medical aestheticians Erin Noplis and Debra Mauro boost patients' appearances with facials, waxing, and laser hair-removal.

As an expert in many areas, Dr. Mandell-Brown also performs breast augmentations and reconstructive surgeries, for which he is nationally known.
After leaving Cincinnati to study at Harvard Medical School and participate in internships and fellowships at Brown University and New York University, Dr. Shalini Gupta has returned to the place where she grew up, and now offers general and cosmetic dermatology and plastic-surgery services to the community. The goal of her practice, Dermatology Laser and Vein Center, is a simple one: restoring natural beauty. She does this with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures that tighten and restore the skin, contour the body's trouble spots, and rid limbs of unwanted tattoos or popped bubble-gum bubbles.
During Dr. Peter McKenna's ascent from an undergraduate at Stanford University to an esteemed member of Cincinnati Magazine's roster of Top Docs, the board-certified surgeon racked up a degree from the Cincinnati College of Medicine, honed his craft in numerous residencies, and shared his expertise in the pages of medical journals and books. From inside the Cincinnati Institute of Plastic Surgery, the doctor doles out cosmetic enhancements to clients' breasts, bodies, and faces, evoking youth in clients' appearances so that they don't have to suggest their age by throwing tantrums in toy stores. Since Dr. McKenna has volunteered his time on medical outreach missions to fix cleft lips and palates in Brazil and has made monetary and medical contributions to numerous charities, his practice has improved the lives of people from all over the world.
At The Better You Clinic and Spa, board-certified physician Dr. Karen Jobalia makes one-on-one support the pillar of her practice. A certified supervisor of hCG-supplemented diet plans, she encourages her weight-loss patients to call and text for moral support and meets with all dermal-filler recipients a week after their treatments to administer touchups and help fill out each wrinkle’s change-of-address card.
