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.
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.
Servicing clients for more than 41 years, Identity Hair Salon and Spa's menu of services helps them create new aesthetic personas via French pedicures, braided hair extensions, or Latisse lash-growth treatments. Inside, Dr. Marie Meyers enhances appearances by performing a variety of beautification services, such as laser hair removal and IPL photofacials. The multi-faceted salon and spa attracts a range of clients, including men eager to evict renegade hairs encroaching on their backs. Alternatively, microdermabrasion, Botox, and facial fillers can transform faces that are on the run from a sinister cabal of stamp collectors.
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.
With multiple locations across the country, VeinSolutions specializes in cosmetic procedures performed by a staff of board-certified vascular surgeons that tailor each treatment to the patient's individual needs. Sclerotherapy targets and minimizes the appearance of unsightly spider veins. After a brief evaluation, the doctor will inject 18 cc's of FDA–approved solution into the voracious vein to start the divorce proceedings. Once the vein wall has become sticky, legs don a pair of compression hose for several days which causes the damaged veins to fuse, break down, and dissolve back into the body, and reassures nervous gams with a round-the-clock bear hug.
Laser treatments are the focus at Reflection Medical Spa: laser hair removal, laser cellulite reduction, laser vein removal, laser facials. Lasers fit with the med spa's commitment to noninvasive cosmetic beauty procedures. In addition to its host of laser treatments, Reflection's staff, led by Dr. Florencia R. Guzman, injects dermal fillers, such as Botox and Juvéderm; rejuvenates skin with facial procedures, such as fractional skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion; and aids weight loss with methods that include meal replacements and appetite suppressants.
