Plush gray couches and contemporary black tables induce states of calm inside the Philadelphia Institute of Cosmetic Surgery's waiting room. The corridors and reception area inside the beauty-bolstering office eschew the clinical appearance of traditional medical facilities for more a home-like décor, such as warmly lit floor lamps, paneled curtains, and porcelain figurines enveloped in snuggies. In the experienced hands of the office's highly trained staff, led by founder and medical director Dr. Zaki Ftaiha, a slew of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic services, such as Botox, implants, and microdermabrasion, smoothes and reshapes corporeal housings. Philadelphia Institute of Cosmetic Surgery's standards for patient care and treatment match the goals set by hospitals, earning the office accreditation from the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Invisalign premier provider Dr. Catherine M. Foote crafts stunning smiles on faces of all ages with personalized Invisalign and Invisalign Teen treatments that earned her a top orthodontist award in 2010 from Philadelphia Magazine. During the first visit, expert technicians snap shots of preening teeth with 3-D photo technology and take digital x-rays to check for stowaway plaque. Dr. Foote scrutinizes images to determine whether Invisalign is right for the patient and creates a customized treatment plan to address specific oral issues. Invisalign manufacturers use the 3-D imaging and molded impressions of teeth to craft a series of clear, calibrated, and removable aligners that cradle teeth for two weeks, comfortably and subtly correcting crooked bites. Over 9–24 months of treatment, patients receive a new set of aligners every two weeks until teeth have reached their desired location, such as a vacation house in Acapulco.
