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.
iShya Spa offers new technology in skin care options including pain-free laser hair removal, no-downtime skin rejuvenation, and tattoo removal. Other services include: skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, acne scar treatment, age spot reduction, freckle removal, and sun spot removal. Outside the spa realm, Dr. Modini Liyanage, medical director of Ishya Spa, oversees a team of health professionals that tend to the primary and urgent care needs of their patients. Here, the physicians and nurses have the expertise to help in emergency and nonemergency situations.
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.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mohamad H. Bazzi and his team strive to cultivate timeless beauty through aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, as well as noninvasive cosmetic procedures. Eschewing short-lived beauty trends, the staff at Celestial Institute of Plastic Surgery works to educate clients about the lasting look of each procedure, whether it's a brow lift, chemical peel, or laser tattoo removal. The institute features three different laser hair removal systems to treat clients of all different skin types. They match this expansive menu of services with high-end product lines, such as Obagi Medical Products, Colorescience, and Teamine. The Institute's 5,000-square-foot studio is located 15 minutes from Ann Arbor, 20 minutes from Detroit, and only 1 minute from a patch of sunshine ideal for modeling a brand-new look.
Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center's team, which is captained by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai, enhances anatomical aesthetics with noninvasive treatments and surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. Microdermabrasion wands zip over sun-hardened skin and injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm work to firm up facial surfaces and fade fine lines. The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.
On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.
