The Eye Institute of Utah has been providing comprehensive vision care to Utah residents for more than 30 years. The Institute's Director of LASIK Services Dr. Darcy Wolsey and her team use state-of-the-art technology to restore their patients’ vision to 20/20 or better. The Institute was the first practice in Utah to acquire the WaveLight Refractive Suite, which helps to vastly improve the patient experience during LASIK procedures. But LASIK is only one piece of the vision puzzle; the doctors are experts at customizing each patient’s treatment to fit their unique lifestyles. They also specialize in standard and custom cataract surgery, glaucoma, dry eye, cornea, retina, eyelid and facial plastics, and comprehensive eye care.
Several years after graduating from Emory University's School of Medicine, Dr. Justin Johnson returned home and opened Utah Eye & Facial Plastic Surgery. There, he and his staff specialize in surgical and nonsurgical procedures for the face, such as eyebrow lifts and chemical peels. Moreover, they can help throw Father Time's hound dog off your scent with Juvederm, Restylane, and other anti-aging injectables.
The beauty experts at Ageless Medical Spa pamper bodies with a full roster of rejuvenating treatments. Classic massages and facials banish stress and refresh the skin, whereas modern laser treatments zap away unwanted hair, wrinkles, and arcade aliens. The spa also boasts a full retail bar of medical-grade skincare products.
At the Institute of Facial and Cosmetic Surgery, cosmetic surgeons Brent D. Kennedy and Steven Constantine use their expertise to bolster patients' appearances. Dr. Kennedy, who holds both a medical and a dental degree, established the institute in 1988 to he train doctors from across the country in a continuing-education fellowship program. He also shares his extensive knowledge as a clinical associate professor of aesthetic maxillofacial surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, and has seen his surgical techniques published in several medical journals and textbooks. His colleague, Dr. Constantine, combines his experience in surgical procedures with a deep-seated desire to get to know his patients and witness the positive mental transformation that follows the physical one.
In the 7,000-square-foot state-licensed surgical facility—which offers overnight stays and 24-hour nursing care—the duo performs a variety of procedures, ranging from face-lifts and tummy tucks to laser skin resurfacing. A master aesthetician is on hand to care for skin with anti-aging GlyMed Plus and Obagi products.
After studying at the University of Utah, Emory University, and Vanderbilt, Dr. Justin Johnsen returned to his native Utah to raise his family and begin to realize his dream of helping those suffering from ocular and facial trauma. At Utah Eye & Facial Plastic Surgery, he and his trained aesthetician administer multiple types of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for the face, ranging from four types of cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Restylane—to the removal of painful eyelid tumors.
The doctor is happy to consult with any prospective client beforehand—and for free—in order to review all options and develop a rapport that can later be applied to a comedy bit.
It says something that pageant queens of the likes of Ms. Utah and Miss Park City Continental trust their skin to the beauty experts at The Spa Dr. The staff’s treatments help make faces stage-ready by zapping unwanted body hair and coaxing away wrinkles. One of its tools is a super-diode laser, which thins out unwanted hair and produces minimal heat while mitigating redness on irritated skin. Services also include chemical peels and injectables, which serve to fight off the signs of aging without making the client go under the knife or halt the earth’s orbit around the sun.
