Ideal Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery's offices, associated with Straka & Mcquone, Inc., are all designed to make patients feel comfortable and safe. Yale graduate and board-certified surgeon Dr. Paul Leong performs all facial treatments, except for laser hair removal, which is done by a trained technician and supervised by Leong. Each option includes a full, personal consultation with Dr. Leong to discuss treatment options and design individualized plans. Laser hair removal works over six sessions to gradually reduce hair growth, and is considerably less painful than getting dipped in hot wax and coated in feathers. The sessions may be used for underarms or any small areas—upper lip, chin, fingers, toes, or ears—but may be upgraded to a medium-sized area (such as bikini line) for an additional $59 per treatment.
Tending to bodies for more than 30 years, The Skin Center Medical Spa enhances innate beauty through noninvasive laser treatments, anti-aging skin therapies, and cosmetic enhancements. Conceived by Dr. Dominic Brandy, the current medical director at three Pittsburgh locations, and overseen by the Columbus location's medical director, Dr. Fernando Colon, the minimally invasive QuickLift mini face-lift helps tighten the lower face, neck, and jawline with a dramatically shortened recovery time. The Skin Center's experts revitalize all components of the face, targeting veins, hair, or Mona Lisa–shaped birthmarks through surgical solutions and high-tech injections. Vascular surgeons Dr. Marios Panayides and Dr. Jason Tomsic specialize in minimally invasive surgeries such as such as endovenous laser ablation, phlebectomy, and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy to serve skin below the head.
With so many recent advancements in the field of dentistry, there's no longer a compelling reason to avoid the dentist. This is especially true if your local office is The Dentistry, where dental professionals offer patients a range of general or restorative services. Before performing services, the team determines whether a sedation option might be necessary by administering a brief anxiety test, in order to ensure that patients stay comfortable during treatment.
Avanti's team of aestheticians, which is helmed by owner Heather Findlan, MD, renews skin with noninvasive treatments. During the approximately one-hour Laser Genesis facial, illuminated energy floods sullied skin cells, luring collagen producers out of deep slumbers. The procedures help to shrink cavernous pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and minimize scarring from acne or Eskimo kisses with a shark. Patients may experience a slight warming or tingling sensation, but unlike more aggressive treatments, the gentle light therapy does not damage the outermost layers of skin, resulting in little to no downtime. Depending on the severity of skin damage, dermises may require up to six treatments for desired results.
Using ophthalmological powers earned during prestigious studies at Case Western Reserve Medical Center and fellowships at Cornell and Tulane universities, Luna Vision and Laser's Dr. Rinku Dutt restores vision with high-tech LASIK procedures and ensures long-term ocular health with eye exams. With more than 7,000 LASIK surgeries under her belt, Dr. Dutt deftly executes bladeless procedures that help clients correct blurred vision or activate the ability to see into the infrared spectrum without glasses or contacts.
In addition to sharpening her patients' eyesight, Dr. Dutt also whittles away their facial and bodily imperfections with beauty treatments. She beautifies faces with Botox or Juvéderm applications, which safely smooth away nearby fine lines and wrinkles. With lasers calibrated to destroy hair follicles without damaging the skin, she clears away unwanted hair from virtually any area of the body during laser hair-removal sessions. Blepharoplasty treatments use a CO2 laser to remove fat and excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids.
The body is a complex system—with slight imbalances in one area often setting off discomfort in another. Dr. Anthony DiCesaro at Whitehall Health Centre works to make cures simpler and address a wide range of maladies. He explains to potential patients how a spinal realignment can reduce pain or how wrist supports can prevent future injury for competitive rock-paper-scissors players. To this list of traditional treatment methods, Dr. DiCesaro adds cold-laser therapy. The laser’s gentle glow doesn’t heat tissue, yet it inspires cellular activity that can expedite the healing process, prevent the formation of scar tissue, and boost the collagen production. Different methods are also used inside Whitehall Health Centre’s cosmetic division, where technicians use the SlenderRay Lipo treatment to flatten unwanted curves and a blue LED light to aid in teeth-whitening treatments.
Dr. Parker, a fellow of the World Congress of Microdentistry with more than 30 years of experience, grants confidence to smiles with a Sapphire whitening treatment designed to lighten fangs up to 10 shades over the course of one office visit. During the procedure, which lasts up to 90 minutes, a seasoned technician lacquers choppers with a peroxide-based Sapphire gel that gently melts away stains caused by coffee, tobacco use, and permanent-marker-chewing habits. If necessary, they'll shine the beams of a Sapphire light on slathered tusks to enhance the gel's whitening power. This gentle procedure, unlike incisor tanning beds, does not rely on any harmful UV rays, yielding results that may last for up to a few years when followed up with proper oral care.
