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.
Skin Elements MedSpa's Dr. Gail Griffin supervises a team of registered nurses and skin specialists as they perform a suite of advanced aesthetic services using tools including hair- and tattoo-removing lasers, dermal fillers, and microdermabrasion wands. To ward off signs of aging and restore patients' youthful glow, the team can create an individualized beauty plan incorporating traditional spa facials to address fine lines or acne, chemical peels to erase hyperpigmentation and smooth wrinkles, and microdermabrasion to resurface faces for a perfect canvas for moisturizer, makeup, or clown noses applied with Gorilla Glue. Clients can seek more pronounced results with dermal fillers such as Botox, which enter the skin via injection where they work to immobilize the muscles that cause wrinkles on the forehead and around the mouth and eyes.
When state-certified medical aesthetician Rachel Roff decided to open Urban Skin Solutions, a medical weight loss center in 2006, she envisioned a place where clients of all skin tones could come in to improve their complexions. Her vision led to the development of various skincare treatments, including peels, facials, and microdermabrasions. The processes are all bolstered by Urban Skin Rx, a line of clinical products suitable for patrons with any type of skin and almost any favorite Power Ranger. In treatment rooms, a medical doctor such a co-owner Dr. David Henderson helps Rachel and her team of technicians harness the power of beauty injections and laser-energy systems in their effort to accomplish patrons? aesthetic dreams.
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.
