Dr. Barbara Persons, a board-certified plastic surgeon, pares her experience as a surgeon with an artistic vision in all of her procedures. Her areas of specialty include both aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, body contouring, facial rejuvenation, and helping new mothers to get back to 'pre-baby' weight.
Before Dr. Michelle Place—a specialist in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery—began helping clients discover new looks for themselves, she went on a journey of self-discovery herself, receiving her credentials through her own version of the Great American Road Trip. Born in South Africa, Dr. Place studied biology in California, attained her medical degree in Texas, and completed a surgical internship in Virginia before moving back to the Golden State to complete general surgery and plastic surgery residencies. At her private practice, the board-certified plastic surgeon and her team enhance clients’ faces and bodies with procedures ranging from breast augmentation and liposuction to face-lifts, laser hair removal, and eyelid surgery to make the eyes appear younger in lieu of covering them with funky dorm-wall tapestries.

Lee, a highly respected plastic surgeon, exercises her aesthetic expertise with nonsurgical procedures such as the microlaser peel, a resurfacing treatment performed on either the face or the back of the hands. Under the effective eye of the Sciton Erbium laser, pigmentation irregularities ease into oblivion, the appearance of scars and wrinkles wanes, and lazy layers of skin snap to attention with a newfound sense of self. The clinic's soothing atmosphere complements the photonic particles' superpowers, like any sidekick, with levelheaded coos of calm. Groupon clients also receive half off a follow-up laser peel, ensuring optimal epidermal rejuvenation. Customers may call to make an appointment and must schedule a 15-minute complimentary consultation that is separate from the treatment.
A cosmetic complex with décor ranging from the chic black tile of its salon to the day spa's bamboo-and-incense ambience, Aventine fills its space with a consummate roster of beautification treatments administered by a highly specialized staff. The classic massage (a $90 value) tailors its 60 minutes of total relaxation to your muscular map's spinal mountain range, flowing energy rivers, and buried treasure chests of stress. A signature 45-minute DermaSweep MD facial (a $150 value) mechanically extracts and exfoliates the face with a gentle vacuum, lifting away dead and deadbeat skin while combating the oxidative aging effects caused by years of reenacting Three Stooges shorts. The treatment begins with a consultation and keeps the skin relaxed throughout with a cleansing massage and therapeutic mask. A one-month professional class membership (a $99 value) to Aventine Spa treats members to a range of discounts on salon, massage, and aesthetic services.
Dr. Jeffrey DeWeese wanted to be a physician when he was just 12 years old, but it wasn't until an emergency-room rotation that he decided to be a plastic surgeon. After watching a colleague reconstruct a young girl's injured face, Dr. DeWeese resolved to dedicate himself to a specialty that combines artistic vision with technical proficiency to improve patients’ quality of life. Now with board certification and more than 17 years of surgical experience, he still relies on this combination of skills, spending ample time with patients beforehand and working with them to select an appropriate treatment regimen.
Surgical procedures comprise a healthy portion of the center's services, but the staff also bolsters confidence, tones and shapes silhouettes, and counteracts aging with less invasive alternatives. Custom facial treatments, for instance, incorporate everything from anti-inflammatory enzymes that conceal signs of acne to soothing masks that leave skin as hydrated as a sponge in a bucket of Gatorade. Microdermabrasion sessions and dermal fillers improve skin tone, whereas a therapeutic massage combines Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and reflexology techniques to address individual aches.
The stark contrast of elegant white walls and vibrant local artwork greets clients as they walk into Union Street Dermatology. Amid the chic boutique space, board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Elias J. Michael and his experienced staff help to relieve skin issues, such as rosacea, acne, and signs of aging, with advanced skin treatments. When he’s not screening for skin cancer or other disorders, Dr. Michael and his colleague Dr. Sandra Morrow oversee cosmetic and med-spa treatments in the form of laser hair removal, sclerotherapy, and eight types of wrinkle fillers including Juvéderm, Radiesse, and medical-grade silly putty.
