Southeast Cosmetic Rejuvenation Group team of beauticians pampers clients with hair, nail, spa, and massage services. Inside the salon, stylists revamp strands into artful looks and dispense advice on how to add flare to one's hair with accenting highlights or thought bubbles. The resident skin experts lend similar attention to the body, exfoliating faces with customized formulas and slimming waistlines with invigorating body wraps.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Bruce Marko has a light touch for body sculpting and facial rejuvenation at Enhanced Images Medical, eschewing the "no pain, no gain" beauty philosophy. Dedicated to minimally invasive procedures, he has continually sought out new, gentle technology since he completed his surgical residency at the Orlando Regional Medical Center and saw the wrinkles Linda Hamilton developed while screaming in The Terminator. His specialty in microscopic hair transplantation represents both his technical precision—he painstakingly duplicates the original growth pattern with new follicles—and his interest in creating a natural look with small adjustments. He also takes his time with patients, who develop a safe, effective route toward their ideal look during free 20-minute conferences.
Although Dr. Marko can lift slack cheeks with a few deft incisions, he maintains a collection of five cosmetic injections to smooth facial creases with little more than a pinprick. Erchonia and Cynosure lasers help patients to sidestep weight-loss surgery and skin-rejuvenation techniques that abrade cheeks through exposure to Fran Drescher's laugh, and the lasers can also rout toenail fungus and unwanted hair.
Beneath the roof at Satin Med Spa, a team of medical providers, a physician, a nurse practitioner, and a well-meaning juggler specialize in noninvasive medical procedures. The staff emphasizes a patient-first approach, taking part in complimentary consultations to answer all questions and plan customized treatment programs. They then perform treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers to assuage frown lines, laser hair removal to smooth skin, laser tattoo removal to remove unwanted ink, and facial treatments such as refreshing chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
Dr. Carlene Ashley first made waves in the field of cosmetic surgery by becoming Newport Beach's first female plastic surgeon in 1986. Since then, she's worked in a number of practices, all with the promise of accentuating clients' best attributes for a natural look, "mak[ing] you look better, not different." At MedBoutique, Dr. Ashley teams up with staff in order to provide a wide range of services from the surgical?such as blepharoplasty and skin-tag removal?to the noninvasive?including photofacials and laser body contouring. They even offer traditional spa services such as facials and body waxing for clients averse to surgery or secret agents with a serious laser phobia.
When it comes to hair, Dr. Mark D. Baxa and his staff at Professional Image & Laser Care can give and also take away. Their services include everything from transplant therapy to laser hair-removal treatments, which are less painful than waxing and less boring than a tour of the velcro factory. But hair isn't the only focus. The staff also rejuvenates skin during spa services such as microdermabrasion, Botox injections, photofacials, and VeinGogh spider-vein treatments.
Dr. Briggs E. Cook Jr.'s prestigious resume includes a medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, a residency in ophthalmology at the Mayo Clinic, and a fellowship in eye and facial cosmetic surgery at the University of Wisconsin. The board-certified ophthalmologist and surgeon has also published numerous professional papers on oculoplastic and cosmetic surgery.
But Dr. Cook's knowledge isn't merely academic, and he puts his surgical skills to use at Pure Facial Plastic Surgery, where he lifts sagging eyelids, reduces undereye bags, and firms necks. He also relies on less invasive procedures to make skin look more youthful, including cosmetic injections and dermal fillers. A consultation with Dr. Cook can help clients determine which procedure is right for them and get a detailed analysis of their dream journal.
