TLC Skin Care Clinic employs two women with extensive credentials. Stephanie Negrete, a registered nurse and licensed aesthetician, is a US Army veteran who served in intensive care units during her service. Danell Banks boasts more than a decade in the field of medical aesthetics, and specializes in chemical peels and dermaplaning. Accompanied by an onsite doctor, these two bring cutting-edge skincare treatments to the table. Stephanie uses Botox and dermal fillers to iron out wrinkles, and they both offer custom medical facials and peels to coax out color and detox pores. In addition, their office is equipped with advanced technology that allows them to perform nonsurgical galvanic and radio-frequency treatments that help clients retain their youthful looks.
Lotus Laser & Spa’s professional team offers noninvasive spa and med-spa services focused on anti-aging. For example, to hydrate and regenerate skin, patients can choose the traditional cleansing and exfoliation of the Lotus Silk facial or the more advanced light of an IPL photofacial. Both treatments, as well as the spa’s Botox injections, laser hair-removal sessions, and chemical peels, are performed under the medical direction of Dr. Lawrence Gogenola, a board-certified dermatologist with more than 20 years of experience.
Registered nurse and clinic-owner Gayle Williamson has been a specialist in cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery since 1974, but at Bellevue Image Enhancement Center, she subtly enhances clients' looks through noninvasive treatments. Her facial procedures range from the Parisian Peel, a retexturing peel with virtually no downtime, to the HydraFacial, which relies on a machine to remove dead skin cells while simultaneously infusing the skin with serums. Her facials rely on high-quality Dermalogica and Glytone products.
Gayle also offers the Epi-Lift, which boosts collagen production with intense pulsed light, and Epi-Light hair removal, which uses a similar process to permanently reduce unwanted hair on legs, chests, and wings.
Much of what Serenity Rejuvenation Center does rests on the shoulders of its medical director, Dr. Stephen O'Connell. As a physician, his knack for physical medicine and rehabilitation ultimately earned him a diplomate status on the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. However, upon reaching another of his field's peaks, Dr. O'Connell decided to branch out into the field of aesthetic medicine. Today, he oversees skincare services such as Botox and Juvederm, along with Cool Sculpting, laser hair removal, weight loss services such as the hCG diet, and wellness services such as vitamin B injections, which inject the bloodstream with a shot of bees.
Helmed by Philip Young, MD, the team at Aesthetic Facial specializes in surgical procedures and cosmetic care with a special emphasis on facial features. The microdermabrasion treatment freshens facades by gently sandblasting away dead skin cells with a stream of tiny crystals and by sucking up fallen-enemy cells with a vacuum. In less than 30 minutes, sun-damaged and aging layers of skin will be a distant memory, and fine lines and scars from acne, burns, and trauma will be noticeably diminished. Since there's no downtime for the skin to recover, most patients can immediately apply sunscreen or makeup to newly exfoliated skin that's brighter, tighter, and smoother, allowing you to infiltrate your workplace unnoticed and raid the donuts as coworkers blame it all on a youthful, vivacious intruder.
