A cosmetic procedure might not be the perfect fit for everyone. That's why Dr. Nathan W. Patterson and his team at Patterson Plastic Surgery take the time to build a relationship with their patients, ensuring expectations and goals are set before any treatments are performed. Dr. Patterson then draws on his years of experience to perform surgical procedures, from breast augmentations and tummy tucks to face and body lifts. Nonsurgical alternatives use lasers and injected solutions to refresh faces, rather than simply covering them in spaghetti sauce.
Located inside Pensacola Apothecary, DermaStudio sets a soothing backdrop for luster-rejuvenating organic facials administered with Obagi skincare products. More than a dozen organic facials revive visages, such as the Blueberry Bliss facial, rife with antioxidants, exfoliating soy yogurt, and a medley of vitamins. Aestheticians augment signature facials with add-ons such as eyebrow waxing and enzyme-infused exfoliating peels, sure to remove the remnants of banana-crème pies thrown in anger.
Dr. Nitin Bawa is a man of many talents. Not only has he completed rigorous research on Alzheimer’s disease and experimental neurology, he has also gained experience in holistic medicine. It's no surprise, then, that the services at his practice range as widely as his background. General medical treatments tend to patients' overall health, with a particular focus placed on addressing conditions such as loss of libido or fatigue through bioidentical hormones. More aesthetically focused procedures ensure outsides remain as glowing as insides. Zerona weight-loss treatments reduce inches via topical lasers, and Botox, Restylane, and other dermal fillers smooth away wrinkles caused by frequent naps on wicker pillowcases.
Dr. Steven F. Weiner, a Johns Hopkins–trained, board-certified head, neck, and facial plastic surgeon, established The Aesthetic Clinique as a non-surgical and minimally invasive practice performing cosmetic procedures with the help of four full-time aestheticians and a registered nurse. Patients consult with the doctor, who draws on 17 years of Botox experience and his status as a Platinum Provider of Botox, to target pesky wrinkles in areas such as foreheads, upper necks, brows, lips, and cotton dress shirts. The entire procedure usually takes only 5–10 minutes, but effects do not become apparent for up to five days. Results of the treatment may last three–six months, allowing patients to pose as intrepid teenage sleuths for an unprecedented amount of time.
From within Etheria Day Spa, nail technicians perform seven types of mani-pedis tailored to men, women, and children. Each treatment includes a nail shaping, cuticle care, and a massage with lotions infused with essential oils. Afterward, nails are left buffed to perfection or topped with bright coats of polish. Clients can also opt for long-lasting gel polish, which keeps nails chip-free for up to two weeks.
Dr. Christopher Cave and his medical staff guide clients through the daunting task of losing weight with programs tailored to each individual. Visits kick off with a consultation with Dr. Cave and a registered nurse, who evaluate clients inside and out with blood work, measurements, and a frank and earnest discussion of their weight-loss goals. Then the team devises a plan of action that can involve any combination of appetite suppressants, recipes, exercise programs, and HCG hormone injections. The team demonstrates their commitment to results by following up with clients every week with blood-pressure checks and weigh-ins.
