By the time Dr. Richard H. Dubou brought his talents to Louisville Plastics, he had already racked up a string of accomplishments. His achievements included graduating cum laude from Brandeis University, earning his medical degree from State University of New York Downstate Medical Center, and serving as lieutenant commander of the United States Public Health Service at the Marine Hospital’s surgery department in Galveston, Texas. Today, at Louisville Plastics, he oversees a staff of health and beauty specialists who help clients alter their outer appearances through elective surgery as well as less invasive measures, such as Radiesse injections, which reduce fine lines and increase skin’s volume with a special formula.
Pretty pampering pros at Knockouts Haircuts for Men, which is now under new ownership, spruce up scalps and cosset weary bodies in a sports-theme men?s salon that has been featured on the Today show and The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch on CNBC. As guests sip ice-cold beers or other beverages and watch a game on flat-screen TVs, stylists sculpt sleek, fashionable looks with the salon?s signature six-step Heavyweight haircut. While the stylists shampoo hair or untie chin-strap beards, aestheticians wax backs and chests or refurbish rugged skin with facials and hand treatments. Stationed in private treatment rooms, the salon?s massage therapists promote further relaxation with modalities designed to melt residual tension from gentlemanly handshaking contests.
Erica McDowell, licensed aesthetician and owner of Skyn Lounge, has spent the past 16 years in the skincare industry. Drawing upon that experience, she offers services that range from waxing and massage to facials. During treatments, she arms herself with products from brands such as SkinCeuticals, Bliss Spa, and Obagi Medical, as well as Zen Skyn Color Collection, her in-house line that fuses nature and science to beautify skin rather than motorize trees. Skyn Lounge also focuses on clinical treatments including dermafiling and dermaplaning, which both slough away dry skin; peels utilize salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and other skin-brightening ingredients to reduce signs of acne and dry skin.
The licensed massage therapists at Light Hands Therapeutic Massage East focus on medical massages to help prevent injury and foster the muscular foundation for healthier, more pliable backs.

Therapists analyze clients' everyday habits for signs of trending problems and then proceed to address individual areas of tension to boost spirits and overall range of motion.
