SmartLipo Laser and Cosmetic Center's aims to expunge the signs of aging on weatherworn head façades with skin burnishing facials and state-of-the-art CO2 laser resurfacing, a treatment that WebMD describes as an “anti-aging breakthrough.” To kick things off, one of these gurus treats faces to a 15-minute microdermabrasion, a surface-sprucer that removes the outer layer of the epidermis with a controlled stream of exfoliating crystals from a jet nozzle. In addition to sloughing away dead cells, this treatment unearths a fresher skin stratum and lessens the appearance of fleshy flaws, including blemishes, fine lines, and sun damage. After expunging pore pollutants and burrowing face gophers, guests then move on to the 45-minute CO2 laser resurfacing treatment. These seasoned staffers gently sweep frontispieces with high-frequency beams of light, removing old skin and spurring collagen into production mode to help tighten epidermises and diminish deep wrinkles caused by sun exposure, aging, and James Cagney impersonations. Although topical anesthesia cream is applied before the procedure, most clients report minimal discomfort. Postlaser redness or puffiness typically vanishes like loose pocket change within a few days, with results lasting for up to several years.
William C. Rigano, MD, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, has been reshaping patients' physiques for almost 20 years. At Advanced Breast & Cosmetic Surgery, he augments or reduces bosom sizes and restores cleavage fullness following lumpectomy surgery. He also refreshes tummies with tucks and tailors excess skin to better fit those who've had bariatric surgery. His team of estheticians resurfaces mugs with facials and chemical peels that reduce the signs of aging, fight blemishes, and clear migrating turtle necks from the face using medical-grade product lines from Zo Medical by Zen Obagi, Obagi, SkinCeuticals, and Vi Medical peels.
Dr. James Apesos, a board-certified and published plastic surgeon, oversees his fellow doctors and aestheticians at The Plastic Surgery Pavilion, which is nestled within a building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956. The producers of both a CBS television special and ABC?s 20/20 have sought his expertise, which he uses to help his clients improve their self-images and daily function with a prolific list of surgical and non-invasive cosmetic treatments.

Amy Tobias and Cathy Murray, aestheticians and co-owners of Transforming Techniques Salon and Medical Spa, each bring 17 years of beauty-biz experience to their treatment chairs. They and their team lavish complexions with a wide range of skin services, from antibacterial and oxygen facials to slightly more intensive chemical peels and wrinkle-fighting injections. Stylists tend to men's, women's, and kids' locks, keeping ends fresh and hairdos manageable, and techs groom both natural and artificial nails. Massage therapists knead stress from tense muscles, and depilation experts use wax to whisk unwanted body hair away from faces, legs, and plates of nachos.
Together with his seasoned staff, Dr. Ronald Bush combats villainous veins with state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. A thorough evaluation using a special light, ultrasound, or truth serum helps determine the source of the spidery tributaries and their appropriate treatment. While laser sessions subdue unruly vessels, sclerotherapy injects venous henchmen with a solution that prevents blood flow through the vein over time. Some treatments may also incorporate VeinGogh, which generates heat beneath the skin with a super-thin probe, forcing vessel walls to paint moody postimpressionistic landscapes until their eventual collapse. Side effects are rare but possible and include temporary skin pigmentation changes posttreatment.
