At Skin Clinic, owner Maria Anello Aponte creates an environment in which clients are treated holistically to address skin conditions that are often squelched with plastic surgery. During complimentary consultations, skincare professionals analyze each client's skin type while taking into consideration lifestyle, diet, and their complete medical history. With this all-encompassing view in mind, the spa's team designs treatments specific to each person's needs and desires. For instance, the aestheticians can recommend noninvasive skin-tightening treatments such as SmoothSculpt, which tones skin around the jowls and neck and smoothes away wrinkles without using any starch. Additionally, they educate their clients on how best to care for their skin on a day-to-day basis. The center's experts may also help boost self-confidence by reducing concerns associated with sun damage, acne, and hyperpigmentation by administering rejuvenating facials, microdermabrasions, or chemical peels.
Dr. Sajadi, owner and director of Bonus Image Aesthetics, smoothes complexions with carefully administered injections of FDA-approved Botox. With the 20 units of Botox, patients can temporarily free their brows of glabellar lines formed from repetitive frowning and aggressive eyelid clapping. Once Dr. Sajadi infuses foreheads with the prescription medicine, the solution actively blocks nerve impulses to decrease the activity of wrinkle-forming muscles. Frown lines may continue fading away for up to a month after the 30-minute procedure, producing a smoother countenance that can provide patients with up to four months of unquestioned food-ordering from the kids' menu.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Jay Richardson and his staff remove the marks of aging on the face, body, and legs with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. During the free consultation that precedes treatments, patients chat with body experts to discuss beautifying options such as IPL photorejuvenation or chemical peels infused, like balanced breakfasts, with acidic fruits. Dr. Richardson, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, oversees noninvasive treatments such as laser liposuction and sclerotherapy to handle unsightly veins.
Dr. Gregory Chambon draws on his extensive medical experience—including a stint as the Chief of Family Practice at St. Luke's Hospital—to guide his staff of medical professionals. The team enhances their clients' natural beauty with injectable treatments, Smart Lipo procedures, and medical-grade skincare. With the use of versatile lasers, technicians can reduce unwanted hair, remove tattoos, and shut down varicose veins like a high-school party on Commissioner Gordon's block. Meanwhile, Neograft treatments help restore lost hair without surgery or scarring.
A licensed aesthetician and certified laser technician, Elite Skincare's Liz O'Boyle has one goal in mind: helping her clients achieve and maintain healthy looking, youthful skin. She partners with Dr. Craig D. Barbieri and his staff at Aesthetic KC to provide a full roster of medspa services, from medical microdermabrasion to cosmetic fillers and other injectables. Full of fruit acids, chemical peels enrich skin’s texture, while IPL photo facials reverse signs of sun damage more effectively than eating a parasol.Liz also uses her laser expertise to eliminate spider veins with the Nd:YAG laser, as well as unwanted body hair with the Light Sheer Diode Laser. Liz and her colleagues can also create customized facials that target problem areas and best-suit a client's skin, finishing with a relaxing neck and shoulder massage.
A cadre of physicians oversees three divisions that form a greater healthcare network. Primary Care Plus is a comprehensive center for family wellness and aesthetics. Emergent Care Plus provides urgent care and lab work seven days a week, an alternative to rushing to the ER or suffering quietly. Sports Med Plus, the hotshot fighter pilot of the group, focuses on injury prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation. Its doctors work with advanced diagnostic equipment such as ImPACT, a computerized test that determine whether a concussed athlete can return to play.
