At Fit Slim of Michigan, the team’s preferred weight-loss tool is light. The center specializes in a red light therapy dubbed UltraSlim, whose beams of LED light trick subcutaneous fat cells into releasing their contents—without painful incisions or any known side effects. Afterward, the freed fat is digested naturally, slimming inches from the midsection, thighs, and chest. As the treatments contour physiques, they also boost collagen and elastin production, tightening skin and combating cellulite.
Dr. Michael Margolis, a board-certified physician, oversees each treatment at Erase The Ink M.D. To start, a trained technician applies topical Lidocaine to numb the area. Next, the technician aims a RevLite Q-switched laser at the offending ink. While the laser sends intense pulsed light beneath the skin to break up the pigment, which is then released naturally through the body’s immune system, a jet releases cold air on the area to optimize comfort. Not without a sense of humor, the staff donates its services to the patient with the worst tattoo each week.
The doctors and aestheticians of Artisan Cosmetic Surgery empower clients to overcome their fears and pursue aesthetic goals. Having earned board certifications in surgery and plastic surgery, Dr. Manish Gupta and Dr. Raj Gupta deliver complex aesthetic modifications. They can alter the size, position, or shape of breasts, diminish excess fat, or sculpt facial features. As an alternative to surgery, certified aestheticians perform anti-aging procedures that yield noticeable results with little to no downtime. They tackle wrinkles with a suite of treatments that cater to different needs. Dermal fillers immobilize wrinkles for months at a time, and chemical peels gradually diminish wrinkles by sloughing away the skin's outermost layer, also known as its overcoat. Artisan Cosmetic Surgery has four locations—two in Ohio and two in Michigan.
Board-certified physician Dr. Salvatore Cavaliere applies his deft surgical skills to enhancing countenances suffering from depilated hairs or the effects of time. A complimentary consultation gives patients a chance to discuss the upcoming eyebrow transplants or face-lifts with their physician and select their brow donor from a lineup of Sesame Street puppets. During the 60-minute eyebrow transplant, a specialist numbs the treatment area with local anesthesia and typically implants between 50 and 100 hairs from elsewhere on the patient's body, restoring brows thinned or damaged by excessive plucking, burns, or injuries. After several weeks, the transplanted hairs fall away and normal hair begins to grow into the client's choice of design, whether it’s a slender arch or bushy Möbius strip.
Although Cleopatra Hair and Skin Center was named after the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, the technology it uses is anything but ancient. The center's technicians accomplish an array of beauty-boosting effects using their Awaken low-level laser. When used for hair regrowth, the laser's warmth opens pores on the scalp and proves that clients aren't wax statues masquerading as humans. After gently penetrating skin, the light stimulates cell growth and boosts circulation, which helps manes grow back thicker and fuller. In an almost identical process, the laser can also improve cell health and repair tissues to rejuvenate skin. Facial treatments powered by the Awaken low-level laser can help erase fine lines and spur collagen production, leaving skin firm and smooth.
Dr. Ayoub Sayeg reshapes his clients' faces and bodies with plastic surgery techniques he had been honing since completing his plastic surgery residency at Wayne State in 2000. Over the past decade or so, he has published a number of articles on plastic surgery and has become a member of many professional organizations including the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. He draws upon this experience to enhance bosoms, minimize tummies, and shorten noses of lying puppets and real live humans at Sayeg Plastic Surgery Center.
