Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide, including two Las Vegas locations, where Drs. Kopolow and Girisgen draw on years of combined experience to assess the ocular health of patients no longer able to discern between aunts and ants in flowered dresses. In the store, opticians help customers navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. They also help focus the world with contacts from Acuvue, allowing cyclopes to throw away their anachronistic monocles and fit in with the 21st century's hip, nonprescription spyglasses.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Daniel Taheri, the staff at LA Laser and Skin Center harnesses laser-fat-removal technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can slink away. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time. Technicians perform the six treatments within 72 hours of one another over the span of two weeks, the exact length of time it takes a laser to cross a football field. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, regular hydration, and avoidance of caffeine and alcohol.
As a division of Valhalla Wellness and Medical Centers, Valhalla MedSpa puts an emphasis on medical-grade care with a team that includes a registered nurse and laser specialist. Instead of fighting sickness, this team works to roll back the clock and help clients reach their aesthetic goals. Specialists administer facials with scientifically formulated SkinCeuticals products and smooth wrinkles with Botox or fillers. Zerona laser treatments provide a quick fix for clients who want more pronounced curves, and custom weight-loss programs offer a more sustained approach to weight loss. The wellness centers also promote overall well-being with chiropractic care, internal medicine services, and massage therapy.
Dr. Joyce Chang at The Medical Skin Clinic groups her treatments into two categories: general medical care and dermatology. These categories encompass the range of skills she acquired while studying everything from pediatrics to geriatrics. Despite the broad scope of her expertise, Dr. Chang takes special interest in all that ails or enhances the female body. Attuned to the many ways that aging affects the appearance, she rejuvenates skin with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, and lasers. At the clinic, Dr. Chang directly supervises licensed aestheticians or medical assistants who diminish fine lines, skin damage, and frozen facial expressions with medical-grade equipment that's only available to physicians.
At LASIK of Nevada, board-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Richard Rothman, who has performed more than 30,000 laser refractive procedures, and Dr. Rajy Rouweyha, who has performed more than 10,000 laser refractive procedures, enhance eyesight with LASIK and PRK surgeries. The medical professionals use FDA-approved lasers to correct clear-vision obstructions, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and blindfolds. After the doctors carefully reshape corneas during either procedure, many patients enjoy 20/20 vision.
Dr. William Baumgartl, director of Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Care at Avèa Wellness Center, draws upon his diverse background in engineering and medicine to help his patients defy the aging process. His know-how extends to a multitude of laser technologies, as well as facial sculpting with the help of injectable fillers and medical-grade play-doh. Hormone-replacement therapy helps men and women keep a spring in their step, and massage services heal aches and pains caused by excessive springing.
