Dr. Sandra Brown has won several awards for her groundbreaking research in the treatment of hair loss and acne scars, including Michiganian of the Year in 1998. Her work is based in Ayurvedic medicine, a natural approach to health believed to restore the body's equilibrium.
Using a patented gel that she developed herself, Dr. Brown stimulates hair follicles to grow thicker and faster, reversing hair loss caused by alopecia, genetic thinning, and stress. A proprietary chemical peel helps eliminate acne and acne scars, and a facial peel treats darks spots, uneven tone, and other signs of aging, such as frown lines caused by thinking about that no-goodnik General Custer.
Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center's team, which is captained by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai, enhances anatomical aesthetics with noninvasive treatments and surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts. Microdermabrasion wands zip over sun-hardened skin and injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm work to firm up facial surfaces and fade fine lines. The med spa procedures address a range of concerns, from unwanted hair to achy muscles. Furthermore, consultations at the center are always complimentary.
Board certified physician, Dr. Laina Feinstein, MD puts her expertise to work in a variety of traditional and alternative medicines. In addition to traditional services such as x-rays, mammograms, and lab work, her offices proffer new laser therapies, including cold-laser treatments aimed at healing carpal tunnel syndrome or aiding weight-loss goals. A newly installed physical-therapy center and gym provide a venue for MD-assisted injury recovery, supplemented with complimentary massages.
Inspired Wellness is a holistic healing center where well-worn skin and dilapidated organs can go to help restore their youthful radiance in a welcoming, peaceful atmosphere. The detoxification/far infrared sauna uses far infrared light, which is part of the Sun’s invisible light spectrum and has the ability to penetrate human skin deeper than a traditional sauna. Once it has worked its way beneath the epidermis and endoplasm, the light works diligently to seek out harmful toxins throughout the whole body and kick them through the pores. This luminous therapy has also been linked to stress relief, musculoskeletal pain alleviation, and improved circulation.
On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.
