Slimming Solutions is more than a name—it's a promise. The medspa, which is staffed by a doctor, a nurse, a nurse practitioner, and a medical aesthetician, treats clients to a wealth of services that help them to slim figures and enhance appearances. The non-invasive lipo laser blasts fat on arms, hips, and bellies with low-level wavelengths that break down fat cells, while the radio frequency body contouring uses heat to tighten and smooth skin while serenading it with the latest polka hit. Other services augment physiques, such as IPL hair removal, vein treatments, and laser skin resurfacing. The medspa also features a variety of spa services such as massages, microdermabrasion, facials, and teeth whitening.
As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Gary McEwen looks after the health of his patients' skin, hair, and nails. He and the team at Lee's Summit Dermatology Associates address both medical concerns?such as skin cancer, warts, and allergies?and aesthetic issues, including unwanted tattoos, spider veins, and wrinkles.
?Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,? says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 17 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
Under new management and equipped with an arsenal of medical lasers, fillers, and injectables, board-certified interventional radiologists target unwanted marks on the legs, evicting spider and varicose veins and leaving behind even skin that deserves to be flaunted. Led by Medical Director Ellen M. Yetter, MD, the team—which includes physicians, technicians, aestheticians, a medical assistant, and one domesticated chimpanzee with a heart of gold—also welcomes patients for dermal fillers, laser hair removal, massages, and facial treatments.
At Skin Clinic, owner Maria Anello Aponte creates an environment in which clients are treated holistically to address skin conditions that are often squelched with plastic surgery. During complimentary consultations, skincare professionals analyze each client's skin type while taking into consideration lifestyle, diet, and their complete medical history. With this all-encompassing view in mind, the spa's team designs treatments specific to each person's needs and desires. For instance, the aestheticians can recommend noninvasive skin-tightening treatments such as SmoothSculpt, which tones skin around the jowls and neck and smoothes away wrinkles without using any starch. Additionally, they educate their clients on how best to care for their skin on a day-to-day basis. The center's experts may also help boost self-confidence by reducing concerns associated with sun damage, acne, and hyperpigmentation by administering rejuvenating facials, microdermabrasions, or chemical peels.
