A Duke University School of Medicine graduate, Dr. Adam Stein supplemented his education by completing a fellowship in facial and plastic surgery. Today, the board-certified facial plastic surgeon uses his 20-plus years of surgical experience and instinctive artistic aptitude to carefully enhance patients' appearances. Dr. Stein utilizes a unique computer-imaging system that allows patients to see how they'd look after a face-lift, nose job, or third-eye augment. Patients also visit his earth-toned, artwork-laden office for nonsurgical treatments, such as wrinkle-smoothing beauty injections and skin-rejuvenating laser resurfacing treatments.
Laser hair removal selectively targets pigment inside hair follicles with all the acuity of a folk hero shooting an apple atop his son's head and none of the complicated pathos. The heat generated destroys the hair without damaging the skin. The expert laser-wielders at ExcelLase hone their lasery wands to render your underarms, bikini area, or upper lip and chin aerodynamically hair free. Although the number of treatments necessary for the laser's depilatory rays to be fully effective varies due to factors such as age, ethnicity, metabolism, and wingspan, the average is four to six treatments. See ExcelLase's FAQ page for further specifics on the treatments and updates on whether or not super-villains have hijacked ExcelLase's technology yet.
