Lee, a highly respected plastic surgeon, exercises her aesthetic expertise with nonsurgical procedures such as the microlaser peel, a resurfacing treatment performed on either the face or the back of the hands. Under the effective eye of the Sciton Erbium laser, pigmentation irregularities ease into oblivion, the appearance of scars and wrinkles wanes, and lazy layers of skin snap to attention with a newfound sense of self. The clinic's soothing atmosphere complements the photonic particles' superpowers, like any sidekick, with levelheaded coos of calm.

Dr. Jeffrey DeWeese wanted to be a physician when he was just 12 years old, but it wasn't until an emergency-room rotation that he decided to be a plastic surgeon.

Now with board certification and more than 17 years of surgical experience, he still relies on this combination of skills, spending ample time with patients beforehand and working with them to select an appropriate treatment regimen.
