What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We often have a furry, four-legged canine greeter in attendance who personally ensures that every patient feels welcome and well-announced.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
We consult with them beforehand to get a feel for what their concerns are, what they hope to achieve for the future, and what has and hasn't worked for them in the past. We thoroughly answer their questions, and our injector has a very warm, friendly personality helps patients feel comfortable in her care.
Drs. Ryan Heffelfinger, Howard Krein, and Edmund Pribitkin share a distinction in their field: each holds the title of fellow from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Together, the distinguished doctors and their team of anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and a medical aesthetician operate Jefferson Facial Plastics on the grounds of Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals. They focus their efforts on plastic and reconstructive surgery for the head, face, and neck, with services ranging from face lifts to hair transplants.
Jefferson Facial Plastics’ therapies also include noninvasive med-spa services such as facials, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. The doctors also perform humanitarian work both locally and abroad, including traveling to Guatemala to repair children's cleft lips.
The staff at Tommi Salon and Spa pamper clients in an airy space with third-floor views of the center city. Stylists trim tresses beneath broad windows in the salon, which also offers services from coloring and straightening to ornate wedding-day updos. The spa swathes clients in a luxurious, but minimalist aesthetic. Footbaths glow blue, purple, and green along a sleek white banquette with six pedicure stations. Other services, such as facials, massages, and waxing, take place in four private treatment rooms; aestheticians also create custom-blended treatments inside a dedicated Spa Lab.
Donna Scott has been to the Oscars. Though she's not a thespian, the longtime medical aesthetician and certified laser skincare expert transported her handpicked products and know-how to the Academy Awards earlier this year, setting up shop at the Donna Scott Celebrity Spa Lounge. Scott, the recipient of InStyle magazine's Beauty Black Book distinction for the best facials in Philadelphia, delivers results by grounding her treatments in science. Where Philadelphia specifically lauds her glycolic peel with vitamin C, noting that it yields "remarkably brighter skin" by lifting away superficial cells. Scott has performed this and other rejuvenating treatments for celebrities at New York Fashion Week and the MTV Movie Awards, but she spends most of her time enhancing the natural beauty of everyday people, such as working moms who have reared spelling-bee champions. By customizing a suite of products for each individual, she treats and assuages skin issues such as rosacea, acne, and hyperpigmentation.
It generally takes about six laser treatments to completely banish unwelcome hair, which is why you are conveniently able to combine two Groupons for a total of six sessions on one area. Those who don't want to go completely body bald but just want to thin out and lighten up a particularly hairy situation can simply get fewer sessions than the magic six. Upon your first visit, a clinic director will help set up your individualized treatment regimen to establish the frequency and number of visits necessary to achieve desired results. Use this initial consultation to ask pertinent questions or to swap apple-streusel recipes with your lasersmith.
Both laser hair removal and chemical peels are swift and precise, requiring little recovery time or ardous preparation. Physician Body Solutions' experienced and highly trained technicians can treat patients with a variety of skin and hair types, but results may vary depending on your skin tone and the character of your hair. These professional laser-whispers will be happy to consult with you on how many treatments it will take to achieve the results you are looking for.
