More than a decade ago, Dawn M. Sears, LME, opened medical skincare and aesthetic laser center Skinsation, where a licensed physician oversees nonsurgical beauty procedures. In the hands of technicians, GentleMax and Vbeam Candela laser systems remove pesky stubble and unflattering vascular lesions. Alternatively, permanent makeup can simplify morning routines, rendering beauty basics such as eyeliner, lip liner, eyebrow filler, and war paint obsolete by imbuing the skin’s dermal layer with natural pigments. Five injectables, such as Botox and Restylane, smooth client’s brows with minimal downtime, and trained technicians coat physiques in sunless Airtan liquid, whose bronzing effects last 7–10 days. Clients can refer to the website for a complete list of services.
We specialize in cosmetic surgery and skin care supervised by Dr. Michael Hueneke, a board certified plastic surgeon. Our friendly environment encourages patients to come in for a free consultation to fully explore their options and how we can help you get the look you desire.
While most of his peers were concentrating on their senior year of high school, 17-year-old Steven Bengelsdorf kept an eye toward the future and accepted a spot in Boston University’s prestigious six-year medical program. Fifteen years later, the gifted youth has transformed into an experienced physician who oversees a staff of nurses and medical aestheticians at The Franklin Center for Skin & Laser Surgery.
Dr. Bengelsdorf and his staff believe that minimally invasive treatments—chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and light-based therapy, to name a few—can rejuvenate the face just as effectively as surgical procedures and bobbing for live electrical wires. Personal consultations and examinations typify the individual approach they take to each treatment, and Dr. Bengelsdorf’s dedication to innovation has resulted in the facility’s penchant for technologically advanced solutions.
The tooth technicians at Rivergate Dental Care ply their pearly trade in a relaxed, nurturing setting. Dentists tailor each whitening procedure to patrons based on the type and level of tooth discoloration, including routine stains, marks left from recently removed braces, and plaques from 3rd-grade softball victories. During the 90- to 120-minute whitening, lips and gums are shielded before a specialized gel coats the chompers. A Zoom! light positioned over the mouth speeds the blanching, bumping mouth bones up to two shades lighter. Clients receive two bottles of take-home gel to brighten teeth by up to six shades. New patients can also make an appointment for a free exam and X-ray to ensure their enamel's eligibility for whitening.
Dr. Carmen April and the attentive staffers at The Foot and Ankle Healthcare Center wipe toe canvases clean of encroaching foot fungus with laser treatments. During the fungus-freeing session, a specialized laser deploys a cascade of light rays across the infected nail bed, treating problem areas that can be caused by athlete’s foot, excessive perspiration, or foot massages from mushrooms. Each heated beam quickly shimmies beneath the keratin surface before throwing a one-two punch that smashes fungi invaders into a dissipating anime dust cloud. The quickly administered treatment painlessly targets all 10 toes without damaging the surrounding skin or nails and results in healthy, sandal-ready feet.
Dr. Jeffrey A. Jones and his medical aesthetician, Christy, nip, tuck, and tighten bodies with surgical and blade-free procedures at Lakevue Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. They augment and reconstruct breasts, lift faces, and fine-tune noses, or sculpt new physiques with liposuction and Kemper tools. They also shoot down unwanted hairs or tighten slack skin with noninvasive lasers. To further enhance patient comfort, the clinic boasts a special, dimly lit private waiting area for cosmetic clients who may be feeling sensitive after a procedure, as well as a "lidocaine lounge" where patients practice magazine origami while waiting for their numbing solution to take effect.
