Certified in plastic and general surgery, Dr. James McAdoo transforms fading facial façades into enchanting visages at both of his clinic locations. Botox treatments safely flatten furrows by paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles with miniscule injections of toxins, leaving skin as soft and smooth as a kitten on a Segway. Side effects are generally minimal, with most patients reporting only a mild stinging that quickly subsides and a precognizant tingling that warns of oncoming danger. Treatments last from 15 minutes to an hour and are effective for up to four months.

Board-certified dermatologist Harry Sharata, M.D. PhD is a man of many talents. Not only does he serve as clinical associate professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, but he is also the medical director for both Advanced Dermatology, Inc. and Madison Skin & Research Inc., a research clinic that conducts clinical trials on dermatological therapies. In his work at Advanced Dermatology, Inc., he leads a staff of nurses, physician’s assistants, and pharmacists through medical dermatology procedures that target eczema, skin cancer, and acne and cosmetic dermatology treatments. These include laser hair-removal as well as other outpatient procedures such as photorejuvenation, glycolic chemical peels, and Botox, which noninvasively target signs of aging including wrinkles, age spots, and lips that continually whistle “Ragtime Gal.”
Dr. Karen French presides over an all-female staff at French Medical Group & Med Spa, where her anti-aging and wellness services range from complexion-clearing facials to innovative fat-melting treatments.

Among their many qualifications, Dr. French and her team are fully trained in Arizona Cosmetic IPL Laser Safety, Syneron, and Venus Concept; armed with this knowledge, they carefully zap unwanted hairs, age spots, and spider veins without damaging skin or blowing up neighboring planets.
