Dr. Kendra A. Cole, a specialist in medical dermatology, and her partner, aesthetic physician Dr. Louis D. Cole, help patients enhance their outward appearance with state-of-the-art treatments. Less invasive body-contouring options include VelaShape, Thermage, and Ulthera ultrasound skin tightening, which can result in svelte figures that easily shimmy into packed elevators and tuck behind trees during hide-and-seek.
For more than 40 years, the doctors and staff at Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery have worked to beautify clients inside and out with cosmetic plastic-surgery procedures. The center's three board-certified plastic surgeons don't just fulfill the required minimum to form a surgeon folk-rock band—they also furnish the diverse specialties necessary to lavish their patients with services ranging from facelifts and rhinoplasty to liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast augmentation. Meanwhile, an in-house anti-aging physician treats hormone imbalances and coaches guests on losing pounds through the hCG diet. The team also bolsters patients' appearances with nonsurgical procedures including facial injectables, laser hair and tattoo removal, and microdermabrasion treatments that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores stretched by spelunking freckles.
The interior of Premier Image Cosmetic and Laser Surgery conjures a sense of serenity with its rich wood floors complemented by walls in quiet earth tones such as forest, sand, and ozone layer. Contemporary artwork hangs over unimposing furniture in the waiting room, and a more formal reception space beckons visitors with pastoral art and an oriental area rug.
Today's side deal puts $80 toward the tattoo of your choice at Ink & Dagger Tattoo Parlour for $40.

Your visit will start with a cosmetic consultation ($35) with Dr. Gordon to identify skin imbalances and create a comprehensive treatment plan. Next, Dr. Gordon will apply the revolutionary Vi Peel solution ($400) to rejuvenate skin and significantly repair damaged skin. The process takes about 30 minutes. Since Vi Peel corrects skin problems at the cellular level rather than just burning off the skin, skin irritation—often seen in other peels—is nearly eliminated, and regular daily activities can continue with no downtime. There may be slight peeling on the third or fourth day after your visit, but it will be painless and light enough to be treated with a moisturizer.
Plastic surgeons can “fix” anything on the body, but Dr. Brian Maloney doesn’t work that way. Instead, the head of the Maloney Center for Facial Plastic Surgery treats only the face, neck, and scalp, eschewing opportunities to perform other surgeries to foster a more specialized—and therefore more proficient—practice. Following thorough one-on-one consultations, Dr. Maloney, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, helps clients achieve the look they desire, be it a smaller nose, fuller lips, or a tighter forehead. Besides going under the knife, patients also can opt for one of the doctor’s nonsurgical procedures, including Botox, facial peels, and a range of acne treatments, which include wire-brush dermabrasion and punch grafts that resurface acne scars with healthy skin.
