It's common to dread a trip to the doctor, but Gina K. Mayer isn't your average doctor. At Dr. Mayer's Wrinkle and Weight Solutions, LLC, she and her staff execute aesthetic services with professional skill, but still maintain a friendly, laid-back atmosphere. Their approach helps alleviate any hesitance patients have about treatments such as Botox or micro-needling, which both require a mild amount of discomfort in order to erase wrinkles. Some of Dr. Mayer's other injections work toward different goals, including permanent cosmetics, which tattoos eyeliner or lip color in place, and sclerotherapy, which shrinks veins.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack conquered myriad fields and the skies before pursuing the art of chiropractics. After graduating from college, Tomshack became an officer in the U.S. Air Force, received his MBA, and finally graduated summa cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Calling upon his newly mastered spinal savvy, Tomshack opened his own practice, whose enormous success led to a gradual expansion and eventually became the nationwide network that exists today. At each HealthSource location, teams of licensed chiropractors, massage therapists, and physical trainers work in unison to help provide comprehensive care, restore ailing statures, and lead masterful renditions of the hokey pokey.
Vision Professionals offers designer frames and up-to-the-minute lens technologies for standard and hard-to-fit prescriptions. Standard lenses are crafted from Trivex, a lightweight and hard-to-scratch surface, putting stunt doubles and badger keepers at ease. Give naturally entrancing eyes an extra kick with frames from Kate Spade, Coach, Tag Heuer, or Oakley (designer frames from $199).
Rinkov Eyecare sends their customers into the world with a clearer view by affixing customized lenses into their wide selection of designer frames. The eyewear emporium can fit Cole Haan ($175 with lenses included) or BCBG ($175 with lenses included) frames with prescription polycarbonate or plastic lenses, both materials superior to prescription bubble wrap. Clients can have their frames fitted with prescription sunglass lenses to keep their vision focused while facing the sun's rays. Rinkov Eyecare Center accepts clients on Saturdays and during evening hours at most of their locations to accommodate work, school, and storm-chasing schedules. Although this Groupon is not valid toward eye examinations, Rinkov's optometrists can also evaluate the vision of patients lacking a current prescription for an additional fee.
For more than 30 years, Dr. Haroon Aziz has worked to narrow the distinction between cosmetic surgery and art. He brings his ambitions and extensive medical expertise to Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, Inc., where he oversees surgical procedures that range from face-lifts and blepharoplasty to tummy tucks. Dr. Aziz always prepares patients for major procedures with a thorough examination and consultation, during which he presents myriad image-altering options and recommends solutions based on the client's needs and preferences. Despite his wide-ranging expertise, including Botox injections, the doctor refuses to put on a one-man show, and instead relies on a licensed aesthetician to rejuvenate appearances with noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion facials.
When Erica Vicens’s mother, Gloria, came home one day with permanent eyeliner, Erica fell in love with the dramatic look. But she was only seven years old, and had to wait many years before getting the procedure herself. When Erica finally traded in her eyeliner pencil for good, she also signed up for a training class to learn how to apply permanent makeup on her own. “The first time I took the training class, knew that was it,” Erica said. She was just as enchanted with the process as she had been with the results.
