Board-certified surgeon Dr. Jay Richardson and his staff remove the marks of aging on the face, body, and legs with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. During the free consultation that precedes treatments, patients chat with body experts to discuss beautifying options such as IPL photorejuvenation or chemical peels infused, like balanced breakfasts, with acidic fruits. Dr. Richardson, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, oversees noninvasive treatments such as laser liposuction and sclerotherapy to handle unsightly veins.
Dr. Rory Hall graduated from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic with one goal: to help patients heal without drugs or surgery. Nearly three decades later, he holds to that same mission; now, however, he augments his non-invasive therapies with modern clinical technology. An FDA-approved cold laser extinguishes inflammation and injuries without breaking the skin, and diets help patients drop unwanted pounds.
Dr. Gregory Chambon draws on his extensive medical experience—including a stint as the Chief of Family Practice at St. Luke's Hospital—to guide his staff of medical professionals. The team enhances their clients' natural beauty with injectable treatments, Smart Lipo procedures, and medical-grade skincare. With the use of versatile lasers, technicians can reduce unwanted hair, remove tattoos, and shut down varicose veins like a high-school party on Commissioner Gordon's block. Meanwhile, Neograft treatments help restore lost hair without surgery or scarring.
Board-certified surgeons scrub into the OR at NewHope Surgery Center—but that doesn’t mean clients should expect a cold, hospital-like environment. The surgery center surrounds its patients in the ease-inducing atmosphere of a spa, but one that’s backed by all the expertise and safety standards of a hospital. The center’s most popular treatment is the Lap-Band procedure, intended to take the guesswork out of weight-loss by more-or-less shrinking the stomach. And though the new hope that the center’s name trumpets does primarily refer to their weight loss solutions, the center doesn’t shy away from other beauty treatments. For example, the registered vascular technicians banish varicose and spider veins with injectable solutions and laser systems.
NewHope Surgery Center is a full multi-specialty surgery center, performing endoscopic treatments, spinal surgery, and much more.
“Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,” says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 17 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
Not everyone can say they love what they do, but not everyone is Rachel Naster. The aesthetician and beauty industry veteran of almost a decade proclaims "I love doing esthetics!" on her website, and her passion is backed up by action. After parlaying her medical office internship into a career working in spas, the beauty buff is now fluent in a wealth of services. Inside her homey studio, she offers up facial peels with IMAGE products, brow shaping, and airbrush makeup to brides or particularly glamorous oil rig workers.
