The specialists at APS Day Spa focus on caring for both the skin and the tense muscles that lurk beneath it. With treatments such as the Clarisonic skin cleaning system?which nudges impurities out of pores with a gentle massaging motion?they can oust infections and prevent blemishes from forming in the first place. Massage therapists coax tension out of the body with Swedish, deep-tissue, and foot-refreshing modalities, as well as a technique that employs smooth stones heated via water or erasers warmed with friction.

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.
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.
The certified medical professionals of Providence Facial Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery smooth out crow's-feet, forehead wrinkles, and laugh lines with FDA-approved Botox injections. Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Ginsburg injects the fine-line-freezing serum directly into creased areas, temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles responsible for causing wrinkles and involuntary jazz blinks in one quick 20- to 45-minute session. The youthful results show up within three days of the procedure, keeping complexions looking taut and age defiant for up to four months.
Led by Dr. Harmon C. Stein, the six physicians at Total Eye Care can handle almost any aspect of ocular care, from laser vision correction to eye muscle surgery for adults or children. Dr. Stein alone has performed more than 10,000 refractive procedures in his more than 25-year career and can personally attest to the benefits of LASIK surgery––he's had it himself. Of course, with better vision, patients might begin to notice pesky veins or wrinkles that never bothered them before. Luckily, Total Eye Care can handle those too: the doctors here are well trained in all sorts of cosmetic procedures, from Botox and skin tag removal, to permanent makeup, which can be custom-blended to match the patients hair, skin, or any hat permanently affixed to their head.
Nestled among towering trees in a stone-flanked cottage, Cosmetic Skin Care Specialists of Cherry Hill highlights clients' inner beauty within a serene, homelike environment.

Meanwhile, his veteran staff enhances appearances with a slew of nonsurgical treatments—including facials, massage, and waxing—that return bodies to the ravishing, youthful state they flaunted when first hatching from their eggs.
