Quarterbacked by Dr. Evan Sorokin and a team of gifted aestheticians, Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery leads worn-out bodies to greatness with a playbook of surgical enhancements and noninvasive skincare services. Buff away blemishes and seemingly unmovable sandwich crumbs with the 75-minute face-restoration package that includes a 50-minute purifying facial, which uses a Clarisonic cleaning brush and manual exfoliation to excommunicate pore gunk before soothing skin with a medical-grade mask (a $90 value). Or Sahara-like faces can choose to cleanse themselves with the nourishing facial that refreshes with light exfoliation, vitamin C, and a skin-firming boost (a $90 value). Place newly supple skin in a pleasing frame with the brow and lash tint (a $49 value), and dethrone unwanted hair with a Nufree wax treatment on two areas of the face, such as the lip, chin, or handlebar nose hairs (a $47 value). Jealous brains get some attention with the customized skincare lesson and take-home sample products designed for oily, dry, and combination skin types (a $30 value).
The Hughes Center for Aesthetic Medicine provides skin-soothing services for its clients in a medically sound and supervised environment. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive facial treatment that gently polishes away the dead outer layers of the dermis to cleanse the skin as effectively as confessing to a bubblegum theft cleanses the conscience. During the treatment, the Hughes Center's skilled aestheticians, led by the Harvard-educated Dr. Susan Hughes, will use a microscopic sandstorm of diamond chips to reveal the healthy, vibrant skin underneath, removing telltale signs of aging, weather exposure, and pensive soul-searching. After a soothing hydration mask and green-tea eye treatment finish up the procedure, you'll skip out of the office sporting the first face-flushed results of the treatment (multiple treatments are recommended to achieve the maximum results). The Hughes Center provides clients with a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere, as well as top-of-the-line equipment and products.
Timeless Anti-Aging helps clients look and feel younger with a multitude of services, but specializes bio-identical hormone replacement therapy. This treatment?which is customized to identify under-performing hormones in both men and women?can potentially correct a number of problems normally associated with aging such as thinning hair, sagging skin, decreased muscle tone, and waning interest in cartoons. Of course, hormone replacement isn't the only prescription for recovering youth, and so the rejuvenating hotspot also offers spider vein removal, IV vitamin treatments, and a number of nutritional counseling and weight-loss services.

Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
I am a board-certified physician with additional training in aesthetic treatments, such as Botox and fillers. I am also highly trained in Bariatric Medicine (the specialty of weight-management and nutrition). Our staff are all certified by Obagi Skin Care, SkinMedica Skin Care. Myself and Madison are both certified in the CoolSculpting treatment, which removes unwanted stubborn body fat. Danielle is certified to perform Microdermabrasion.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a patient?
"You have changed my life." We hear this almost on a weekly basis. Whether it is from a patient who was unhappy with their appearance or a weight-loss patient who has lost a lot of weight. Seeing someone with a low self-esteem walk around with confidence is truly rewarding.
What steps do you take to make your patients feel at ease?
Our office is very warm and inviting. We've been told it feels more like a spa than a doctor's office. Our staff ensures you are comfortable while waiting for the doctor. We offer hot tea, cool bottled water, or for patients to just relax in our lounge-like waiting room.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our office is unique in that we have a board-certified physician who not only owns the practice, but sees patients at their visits. We are the only area practice that specializes in medically supervised weight management, aesthetic treatments, and CoolSculpting.

Using a computerized skin-analysis system, Dr. Volchonok?s staff can customize a skincare regimen unique to each client?s needs and goals and steer them toward treatments that might include IPL photorejuvenation, microcurrent facelifts, or a 24K gold facial.
