With more than 30 years of experience, The Colton Center's Dr. Jeffrey J. Colton and Dr. Lamont R. Jones lead a knowledgeable staff in revivifying visages and skin with a diverse array of aesthetic and surgical procedures. The duo of physicians can escort unwanted wrinkles and loitering pigeons from façades with Botox and Restylane injections, or combat the effects of gravity during full face-lifts or chin, ear, and nose augmentations. Nonsurgical treatments, such as chemical peels, adeptly tackle blemishes without the need for obtrusive tools. Laser hair removal uses the latest technology from Alma Lasers, providing a virtually pain-free treatment for all skin types. To ensure optimal results, staffers and clients join forces to determine an appropriate beauty game plan, complete with intricate hand signals, before beginning treatments.
Dr. Michael Roth draws upon skills learned at Cedars-Sinai Hospital and West Point Military Academy when supervising the staff at Novi Laser & Aesthetic Center. Together they proffer a wide range of cosmetic skincare services, such as dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, and intense-pulsed-light treatments. The small staff includes a certified massage therapist who has mastered energy techniques and stretching along with traditional massage, and two medical aestheticians who have a list of certifications longer than a copy of War and Peace translated into pig Latin. Novi Laser & Aesthetic Center also stocks skincare products from brands such as Glytone and Revision skincare to keep faces looking younger after treatments.
Certified personal trainer Mechelle Haflich is familiar with both the highs and lows of physical health. As a bodybuilder, she has won competitions focused on superior strength, and as a registered massage therapist, she has eased injured muscles back into action. Both titles have proven essential in planning FitBody Studio, where she takes a holistic view on wellness through fitness, massage, and spa services. Alongside a team of highly credentialed instructors, therapists, and aestheticians, Mechelle's team adjusts her programs to suit each client's ambitions, which range from losing inches to being able to deadlift a locomotive.
On the exercise side of the curriculum, private training sessions and group classes build endurance—Vinyasa yoga and kickboxing sessions round out the stair climbs and cardio drills of the Bleachers class, which takes place inside the Colorado College football stadium. To repair overworked deltoids, the studio's massage programs relax tendons and target injuries with a mix of modalities. After workouts sculpt bodies, FitBody Studio’s spa polishes them smooth with waxing services and custom facials.
With a newly minted medical degree and ability to pronounce caduceus, a young Dr. Michael W. Gray charged headlong onto the osteopathic scene. After a stint as the chief resident at Midwestern University's Chicago Osteopathic Medical Center and a fellowship at Northwestern University, the already accomplished plastic surgeon packed up his snake and staff and headed for the Pleasant Peninsula. Today, when he's not discussing advancements in plastic surgery on ABC and NBC local news, he brings his years of experience to The Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa where he and his staff perform a full line of surgical and nonsurgical medical procedures.
At Skin Deep Spa, Gray practices a less-aggressive approach to cosmetic procedures with noninvasive treatments in a space designed to put clients at ease. Zerona cold-laser systems and the pulsed energy of Venus Freeze gently smooth away cellulite, for example. The in-house Beauti Bar area, manned by licensed aestheticians, sells Skin Deep beauty products designed by Dr. Gray himself to augment the cosmetic treatments. The zen-garden-inspired décor infuses the spa with earth-toned tiles, leafy green plants, the sound of rippling water flowing over stones in fountains, and ornate wooden chests filled with meditating yogi masters.
In a pastel-toned spa sanctuary, the certified cadre of aestheticians and nurses perform a symphony of cutting-edge beauty services, backed by more than 60 years of combined experience. State-of-the art treatments include medical microdermabrasion, which showers skinscapes with a mist of super-fine aluminum oxide crystals to alleviate acne scarring, soften fine lines, and free up foreheads so they can be rented as ad space. FDA-approved VelaShape sculpts smoother body contours using a combination of bipolar radio frequencies, infrared light, and mechanical massage, and dermal fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane fill in fine lines from laughing and frowning or indentations from motorcycle helmets.
At the Center For Medical Weight Loss, physician Gina Randhawa uses a program rooted in scientific principles to help patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Dr. Randhawa employs tools such as body-composition analysis to customize each treatment plan, enhancing the effects of a low-calorie diet with appetite suppressants and injections designed to boost energy and metabolism. Her medical expertise also allows her to identify barriers to weight-loss success, from medications taken for separate health conditions to walls built around gyms.
