42 years. 30,000 procedures. 20,000 patients. It's no small feat, but medical director Dr. P. James Voloshin has been fully committed to his clients since 1972. At Newport Surgery Institute, he and his team upgrade looks with a full spread of aesthetic services, from noninvasive microdermabrasion facials to liposuction. Each procedure is tailored to the desires of each client, who can convey their aesthetic hopes to the staff in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, or Dothraki.
The years of 1989, 1994, and 1996 were milestones for Dr. Thomas D. Toohey. They were when he earned the three degrees?one in medicine, one in surgery, and one in plastic surgery?that would help define his career and force him to reassess his budget for diploma frames. The board-certified plastic surgeon has now been addressing facial aging, performing breast augmentations, and contouring the body for almost two decades.
Dr. Toohey's treatment plans incorporate both surgical and less invasive options, including augmenting breasts with saline or silicone implants, suctioning fat out of the body during liposuction treatments, and injecting fillers into faces. To help people select the best procedures, Dr. Toohey chats with potential patients during complimentary consultations.
Contour Dermatology bolsters patients struggling with friction-inducing strands and stubble with safe, comfortable laser hair-removal techniques. Over the course of three sessions, medically trained staffers teleport black or brunette fuzz from the face or body to a far-off galaxy by aiming a low-energy GentleLase beam at follicular bases. Charged particles carry enough energy to blast away the melanin inside errant bristles but leave the surrounding skin healthy and unharmed. Like planning a date for your parents, the procedure can be slightly uncomfortable, so technicians employ a cool laser tip, gel, or spray to soothe the skin and help spare nerves undue unpleasantness. Most complexions are acceptable candidates for laser hair removal, but clients with a very dark complexion may be subject to a spot test to ensure effective treatment. Clients need three to six sessions on average to impede ill-placed tufts during the active phase of each follicle's growth cycle.
Registered nurse Britta Wetteskind, R.N., under the direction of medical director Brian Levine, M.D., has demonstrated her skin-smoothing and anti-aging treatments for Good Day LA and Riviera magazine. She helps clients rewind dermal odometers with injectable dermal fillers designed to tighten sagging skin, smooth wrinkles, and lighten age spots. Her signature HydraFacial has been shown to shrink facial pores, calm hyperpigmentation, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles in about 20 minutes. Britta also offers holistic services such as weight-loss plans.
The staff at Trim Spa works to shave inches off of waistlines with a trio of non-invasive services. During the yolo curve treatment, laser paddles heat fat cells inside the abdomen, causing them to release their contents so they can be flushed from the body. Then, clients stand atop a yolo vibe platform that sends ripples of vibration through the body, causing thousands of calorie-burning muscle contractions per session. Treatments finish in a far-infrared sauna whose warming rays help boost the heart rate and metabolism.
A board-certified surgeon who lent his talents to ABC's Extreme Makeover, Dr. Robert W. Kessler helps clients become their most confident selves through innovative cosmetic treatments. Instead of overhauling a client's appearance, Dr. Kessler uses patients' old photos and marble busts to restore a natural youthfulness that's unique to each individual. Treatments are generally targeted toward the face, chest, or body, and include surgical facelifts and breast augmentation. The doctor also counsels all clients on nonsurgical options, ensuring that patients make informed choices that are right for them.
