Wielding the latest technology, epidermal specialists at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates beautify skin from the inside out. A staple in facial care, the microdermabrasion treatment polishes cheeks with a diamond-tipped wand to buff off dull skin cells and leave faces as smooth and radiant as a freshly shaved spotlight. Next, a Hydro Wand swipes cheeks with personalized concoctions of facial products, employing exfoliation to shuttle serums deep into dermises. Newly softened faces, bearing fewer fine lines and smaller pores, can immediately return to their serious business of issuing smiles and frowns without downtime.
Licensed acupuncturist Angela Buckridge helps relieve pain and various bodily maladies by precisely placing sterilized needles on vital areas of the body. Buckridge identifies the source of disruption of each patient's particular bodily energy, or qi, during full examinations, which include a diagnosis of the pulse and tongue and a reading of one's middle-school diaries.

In addition to acupuncture, Buckridge also performs cupping treatments, in which she expertly affixes cups to patients' backs in order to accelerate healing within the body.

Smile-A-Nu provides teeth-whitening services to erase telltale signs of tar-chewing contests and catching paintballs in your mouth. After comparing the current shade of your teeth with a shade-guide comparison chart, a Smile-A-Nu technician will assist you in applying hydrogen peroxide gel directly onto each mouth bone while ensuring minimal spilloff onto gums. Peroxide concentrations vary between treatments. In the traditional treatment, a gel is applied to a tray that’s placed in the mouth and worn under an LED light for 30 minutes, while in the advanced treatment, customers don a cheek retractor, then apply gel directly to teeth themselves before a 15-minute LED light shines brightness into dull incisors.
