Reviance Plastic Surgery's board-certified surgeons and physicians work to improve physiques and complexions, drawing from an extensive menu of cosmetic services that includes skin treatments, laser treatments for hair and scar removal, injectables, and plastic-surgery procedures. Unlike the before and after pictures at pie-eating competitions, Reviance's gallery of before and after photos showcases tightened and toned outcomes.
During the laser hair-removal treatments, LuminaSkin's trained technicians blast follicle hedgehogs burrowing along hirsute human prairies with the LightSheer laser system. Each treatment package zaps hair across the body and requires two sessions; the women’s package deforests fuzzy quadrants from toes to upper lip and the men's package takes aim at stubborn upper torso tufts and escaped topiaries hiding on backs. The low-energy light beam blasts through the epidermis and down to the follicle’s root, helping to disrupt and diminish each strand’s growth cycle. The ChillTip of the LightSheer's wand works in tandem with numbing cream to help bone blankets stay cool, comfortable, and collected throughout the heating process. Depending on the hairs' density and ability to dodge lasers like gym-class kickballs, five to eight treatments maybe needed for optimal results.
At Premier Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon James Newman, MD, FACS and his fellow board-certified plastic surgeons enhance beauty within their state-of-the-art surgical suite. Dr. Newman completed his residency and a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Stanford University, where he now serves on the clinical faculty. He completed an additional fellowship with an emphasis on laser surgery after recognizing the large role lasers now play in surgical procedures. The renowned surgeon also lectures internationally and has authored more than 30 surgery-related scientific publications and a coloring book.
Dr. Newman and his staff perform a variety of medical procedures, ranging from face-lifts and Vaser ultrasonic liposuction to minimally invasive body-contouring and enhancement techniques. They can also combat signs of aging via nonsurgical means, including dermal fillers that smooth wrinkles and Vaser Shape sessions that, like a rearview mirror in place of a bathroom mirror, make bodies look smaller.
After graduating with honors from the University of Miami's medical school in 1975, Dr. Michael Stephen Norris pursued a specialty in plastic surgery to help his patients improve their looks. Before treatments he gets to know the individual goals of the patient and thoroughly explains their options to them—along with the risks and benefits involved. By keeping his patients informed and empowered, Dr. Norris has gained a loyal following of repeat customers who trust him with their every unwanted wrinkle, bulge, or third ear.
The medical spa's brigade of board-certified doctors meet individual beauty needs with a plethora of age-defying and beauty-building services. During laser treatments, licensed physicians de-fur men's and women's skin wardrobes by combining bipolar radio frequency and optical energy to damage the hair follicle and impede further growth. The safe and effective treatment reduces hair and leaves skin smooth for body surfing in rain puddles and going head-to-fin in competitive goldfish races.
Though she served as director of anesthesiology at the San Leandro Surgery Center, Dr. Gayle Misle helps the clients at Reviv Med Spa to look anything but sleepy. With a mission to help rejuvenate and improve bodies, Misle and her staff fight signs of weariness and aging with the latest aesthetic technologies, including injectables, chemical peels, and dermaplaning. Exilis, Sciton, and other aesthetic units utilize infrared and thermal energy to reshape stores of cellulite and tighten skin by jumpstarting its natural collagen-production process. Expert technicians also master several types of laser treatments that rid the body of unwanted hair and once-wanted tattoos.
