Dr. Ingrid Warmuth’s dermatological specialties dot a spectrum that spans from medical to cosmetic. She helps cure such conditions as adult and adolescent acne, eczema, warts, and psoriasis, and, when necessary, she can perform surgery to quell a skincare issue. On the other hand, she provides treatments that simply improve skin’s appearance: laser tattoo and hair removal, chemical peels to exfoliate and brighten skin, and Botox to relax unwanted wrinkles.
Contemporary Plastic Surgery, helmed by Dr. Robert A. Herbstman's, balances the aesthetic needs of clients with a mix of traditional cosmetic surgery, non-invasive procedures, and top-notch skincare programs. An experienced on-staff aesthetician evaluates each client's skincare needs before designing an individualized and customized regimen. Certified staffers transform bodies through both surgical procedures and noninvasive med-spa services, such as microdermabrasion, which employs a diamond-studded wand to exfoliate layers and stimulate cellular growth.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process eschew cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays and photos ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
