After studying at the University of Utah, Emory University, and Vanderbilt, Dr. Justin Johnsen returned to his native Utah to raise his family and begin to realize his dream of helping those suffering from ocular and facial trauma. At Utah Eye & Facial Plastic Surgery, he and his trained aesthetician administer multiple types of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for the face, ranging from four types of cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Restylane—to the removal of painful eyelid tumors.
The doctor is happy to consult with any prospective client beforehand—and for free—in order to review all options and develop a rapport that can later be applied to a comedy bit.
Millcreek Chiropractic brings bodywork bliss to bone bags rattled by aches and pains from botched shark-jumping attempts. During the chiropractic exam ($85), the doctor will review your medical history and you'll undergo basic testing of orthopedics, muscles, and reflexes. Then you'll receive a 45-minute massage ($45) from Millcreek Chiropractic's licensed massage therapist. Tissue toxins will be tossed out, circulation will be jump-started, and flexi-mobility will be restored.
Envision Cosmetic’s surgeon Dr. Dunkley and his friendly staff carefully tailor each of their surgical and nonsurgical procedures to best fit each body's beautifying needs. The laser hair-removal treatment targets unwanted body hair safely and effectively with the Alexandrite laser, which, over the course of six treatments, gradually zaps hair at the follicle until the skin feels as smooth as a cue ball engraved with can't-miss pickup lines. Since hair tends to grow in cycles that depend on when follicles are active, multiple treatments are required to see longer-term results, and results may vary from client to client.
At the Institute of Facial and Cosmetic Surgery, cosmetic surgeons Brent D. Kennedy and Steven Constantine use their expertise to bolster patients' appearances. Dr. Kennedy, who holds both a medical and a dental degree, established the institute in 1988 to he train doctors from across the country in a continuing-education fellowship program. He also shares his extensive knowledge as a clinical associate professor of aesthetic maxillofacial surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, and has seen his surgical techniques published in several medical journals and textbooks. His colleague, Dr. Constantine, combines his experience in surgical procedures with a deep-seated desire to get to know his patients and witness the positive mental transformation that follows the physical one.
In the 7,000-square-foot state-licensed surgical facility—which offers overnight stays and 24-hour nursing care—the duo performs a variety of procedures, ranging from face-lifts and tummy tucks to laser skin resurfacing. A master aesthetician is on hand to care for skin with anti-aging GlyMed Plus and Obagi products.
Podiatrist and surgeon Dr. Jason Dickerson has been easing the ailments that hide inside Utah residents' socks for more than 10 years. At the Foot & Ankle Institute he treats everything from sprains and strains to gout, infections, and retractable toenails. Simple routine checkups make sure all is well in the lower appendages, and custom orthotics relieve pain and correct alignment issues.
Dr. Todd Daynes and Dr. Francis Wapner, the ophthalmologists behind Advanced Eye Care, wield experience gleaned from thousands of surgeries, exams, and medical evaluations when correcting ocular issues. The office outfits eyes in a number of stylishly sight-enhancing frames or secretly spiffs up vision with a pair of contacts. For those looking to shed their eyewear altogether, the doctors terraform corneal surfaces during traditional LASIK treatments performed with a microkeratome, often leaving patients with 20/20 vision or better and reducing their need for glasses, contacts, or large-print maps of their living rooms.
