Tending to bodies for more than 30 years, The Skin Center Medical Spa enhances innate beauty through noninvasive laser treatments, anti-aging skin therapies, and cosmetic enhancements. Conceived by Dr. Dominic Brandy, the current medical director at three Pittsburgh locations, and overseen by the Columbus location's medical director, Dr. Fernando Colon, the minimally invasive QuickLift mini face-lift helps tighten the lower face, neck, and jawline with a dramatically shortened recovery time. The Skin Center's experts revitalize all components of the face, targeting veins, hair, or Mona Lisa–shaped birthmarks through surgical solutions and high-tech injections. Vascular surgeons Dr. Marios Panayides and Dr. Jason Tomsic specialize in minimally invasive surgeries such as such as endovenous laser ablation, phlebectomy, and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy to serve skin below the head.
Ideal Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery's offices, associated with Straka & Mcquone, Inc., are all designed to make patients feel comfortable and safe. Yale graduate and board-certified surgeon Dr. Paul Leong performs all facial treatments, except for laser hair removal, which is done by a trained technician and supervised by Leong. Each option includes a full, personal consultation with Dr. Leong to discuss treatment options and design individualized plans. Laser hair removal works over six sessions to gradually reduce hair growth, and is considerably less painful than getting dipped in hot wax and coated in feathers. The sessions may be used for underarms or any small areas—upper lip, chin, fingers, toes, or ears—but may be upgraded to a medium-sized area (such as bikini line) for an additional $59 per treatment.
Past the leather sofa and the drink station equipped with coffee, water, and snacks, patients will find the treatment rooms at Fox Chapel Family Dental. In these rooms, which are equipped with 40-inch flat-screen TVs and complimentary WiFi, Doctors Dave Johnson, Mike Johnson, and Marc Johnson treat patients with a variety of general and cosmetic dental procedures. Their expertise ranges from cleaning and examining teeth to installing crowns and braces.
Large silver letters spelling Aveda march down a patterned wall, announcing the spa’s dedication to natural ingredients and aromatic botanicals. Multihued walls and verdant plants surround chairs as the staff performs hair coloring, nailcare, and spa treatments. The spa also offers off-site wellness coaching, proven more effective than hearing an ear-piercing whistle every time one reaches for a donut. Stylists and aestheticians stretch their hours until 8 p.m. on weekdays to accommodate busy clients, who also get incentives, such as 15% off Aveda products in return for donating haircare items to charity.
The award-winning Dr. Dinakar Golla of Golla Center for Plastic Surgery, a board-certified plastic surgeon, has been recognized by universities, Merck, and the national medical honor society Alpha Omega Alpha. When he's not lecturing, publishing articles, and teaching other surgeons to perfect their skills and properly quote medical dramas, Dr. Golla joins his team to help patients look and feel their best. Traditional surgical options, such as rhinoplasty and tummy tucks, join injectables and laser treatments to comprise a full menu of rejuvenating services.
At New You Wellness & Aesthetics, the staff strives to provide patients with the latest in aesthetic technology. Their services include photo rejuvenation, body-contouring lipo-light, and whole-body vibration. A range of Botox and filler products equip them to leave faces smooth and youthful looking.
Offering everything from Botox and Juvéderm to mani-pedis and spray tans, the staff at Pampered Peacock Spa and Boutique makes each client’s beauty and relaxation needs a top priority. Hair services include cuts, color, and keratin treatments. Spa packages combine services such as a soothing Swedish massage and mani-pedi or full-body exfoliation followed by a spray tan. For the young ones—girls between the ages of 3 and 12—the staff can prettify fingers or toes during fun spa parties, and also performs facials or creates envious peacock hairdos.
