Unlike Daddy Warbucks, the robot sent from the future to protect Little Orphan Annie and her signature dimples, the techs at VelaSpa make it their mission to eradicate dimples onsite. Armed with the FDA-approved VelaShape hand piece, they harness infrared light and radio frequencies to scatter and smooth cellulite. In addition to their bread-and-butter treatment, the med spa undoes the malicious work of genetics and environmental factors with sublative skin rejuvenation, a 20-minute facial treatment that uses laser light to help decrease the signs of sun damage and pigment irregularities.
Dr. Tom Haas might be the one examining clients at Imaage Cosmetic Surgery Center, but there’s a chance they might recognize his face as well. The board-certified plastic surgeon has made multiple television appearances, been featured in numerous magazine articles, and offered advice in several educational cosmetic surgery videos. Readers of LEO Weekly named Dr. Haas the area’s best plastic surgeon in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and the center also earned the publication's best spa award in 2011. The state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery suite puts client satisfaction first, offering a discrete exit for patient privacy and a comfortable waiting area for loved ones. Most procedures can be performed under Twilight anesthesia, which reduces undesirable side effects such as grogginess and mid-session snoring. The center's registered nurse and licensed aestheticians also perform a variety of nonsurgical services, including laser facial treatments, peels, and body-contouring VelaShape sessions.
Dr. Joseph Banis, a board-certified surgeon, leads a team of registered nurses and aesthetic specialists at his plastic-surgery and medical-skincare practice. This well-qualified crew tackles signs of aging with facial peels, injectables, and laser treatments, as well as surgical nips, tucks, and lifts. Noninvasive CoolSculpting body contouring aims to freeze fat cells for a more shapely physique, whereas traditional liposuction removes fat deposits from areas such as tummies, thighs, and vestigial tails.
Led by a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, the laser experts at Midwest Hair Loss Center aim to thicken thinning strands with hair-loss procedures for both men and women. Sit back for 30–45 minutes as cool, low-level-laser light shines across scalps to foster circulation, increase the flow of vital nutrients to damaged hair follicles, and conjure witty thought bubbles above the head. The scalp pros can help slow the progression of thinning manes, stimulate transplanted hair to grow more rapidly, and render regrowth in some cases. Clients bring their heads back to the private treatment rooms two times a week for scalp bolstering sessions that eschew the burning and downtime required of other therapies, such as hot-gluing bathmats onto the head.
Made up of a nurse practitioner and experts on nutrition, anatomy, and aesthetics, Louisville Lifestyle Medicine's staff helps patients manage existing medical conditions or simply feel their best. The center's services cover a broad range of disciplines, and include everything from photorejuvenation and pixel skin resurfacing to pigmented lesion removal and hair removal. Staff members assess patients' health through physical exams and diagnostic tests, and fend off pneumonia, tetanus, and shingles with immunizations. Participants in the guided weight-management program benefit from the staff's varied skill sets to help shed pounds, whether through custom meal and exercise plans, expert guidance, or by emptying one's pockets of heavy change. Many patients also manage the effects of declining hormone levels with the center's bio identical hormone therapy, whose plant-derived medicines mitigate symptoms ranging from poor libido and weight gain to fatigue, depression, and mood swings. Cosmetic services include injectables such as Botox, Dysport, Restylane, and Juvederm.
