Physician-owned and operated, Healthy Image Physicians reverts visages to more youthful appearances using quick, noninvasive techniques. During a 10-minute Botox treatment, technicians inject a specially formulated serum to undo frown lines by blocking nerve impulses around wrinkled foreheads, smoothing between-brow mountain ranges into level, prairie-like skinscapes. The FDA-approved injection delivers results within a few days without the need for recovery or downtime, and its effects can last for up to four months. Juvéderm XC ($500–$575 per syringe, treatments usually require one to four syringes) fills in facial folds around the mouth and nose with a smooth, consistent gel treated with hydrating hyaluronic acid, which promotes a fresh, vibrant complexion and eschews the need to steam press stubborn crow’s feet.

It might be hard to believe considering its vast array of products, but Sears, Roebuck and Co. began with one accessory: watches. In 1886, Richard W. Sears bought a box of unwanted watches from a jeweler, thinking he could turn a profit by selling them. He was correct and committed to the watch business by hiring Alvah C. Roebuck, an experienced watchmaker.
As time went on, though, their business expanded its umbrella far beyond what people wore on their wrists. Sears became known as the place to shop for almost any appliance, from sewing machines to those magical boxes that create water from nothing and clean your clothes.
Today, the stores stock clothing, accessories, electronics, kitchen equipment, tools for outdoor living, and home decor. This variety is sustained by Sears's proprietary brands—Kenmore, Craftsman, and DieHard, to name a few—and other national names that populate the shelves.
