There's something about a spotless vehicle glistening in the sunshine that inspires a sense of pride. Perhaps it's a badge of success or perhaps it's the promise of freedom, but either way, Magic Touch Detailing's technicians understand. They've kept cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, and boats shining for more than a decade, hand washing fiberglass contours and dressing tires so that even their habitually dull rubber glows with a high-gloss shine. Before handing the keys back to expectant owners, they reinvigorate each ride with a three-step paint reconditioning and a generous coat of carnauba wax. When clients sink back into the driver's seat, they reap the benefits of steam-cleaned carpets, spotless glass, and dustless vinyl and leather. To expand beyond their in-shop work, Magic Touch's mobile personnel also tinker with vehicles in clients' driveways or at the bottom of the pits where the cars were accidentally "parked."
The chiropractors and licensed massage therapists at each Pinnacle Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center aim to minimize chronic pain, optimize whole-body health, and soothe stress with their signature services, all of which start with the spine. They blend holistic and medical chiropractic practices to trigger the body’s natural healing processes into action while eschewing drugs, surgery, or deception.
When Dr. John Neary isn’t editing textbooks, publishing articles, or lecturing worldwide, he’s performing restorative oral procedures at his medical center. He and fellow dental surgeon Dr. Matthew Pavlick helm a range of surgical operations, from corrective jaw surgery to wisdom-teeth removal to stuck-on wax-lip removal. The surgery center also houses a cosmetic branch, where doctors perform rhinoplasties, face lifts, and Botox injections as well as laser hair-removal and other non-invasive procedures.
Voted No. 1 from 2209-2013 by the readers of the Akron Beacon Journal, Novus Clinic was born 20 years prior from board-certified ophthalmologist Todd L. Beyer and optometrist Jerry Sude’s vision for a one-stop eye-care facility. To bring this idea to fruition, they first recruited a neuro-ophthalmologist and a second optometrist to their team and eventually constructed a 3,800-square-foot surgery center in 1998. The state-of-the-art center was built in response to the voices they heard asking for laser vision-correction procedures such as LASIK and cosmetic treatments. Dr. Beyer, also a certified oculofacial plastic surgeon, began performing face-lifts along with noninvasive skin treatments after he found himself fielding queries from more and more patients about dermal fillers, peels, and laser hair removal.
With the expanding list of offered services, the clinic shed its original title, System Optics, and was reknighted Novus Clinic in 2003. The word novus, which translates to “fresh and exciting” in Latin, more accurately encompasses the clinic’s multifaceted approach to ocular and anti-aging treatments. The doctors never forget the primordial soup from which they sprang, though, and still conduct eye exams and keep a venerable inventory of designer frames.
At Legacy Plastic Surgeons, Drs. James Lehman and M. Devi Prasad Tantri combine more than half a century of medical and cosmetic experience. With more than 70 published articles under his belt, Dr. James Lehman is well versed in all areas of cosmetic plastic surgery, specializing in breast reduction, breast implants, and abdominoplasty. His counterpart, Dr. M. Devi Prasad Tantri, boasts more than 25 years of medical experience, and demonstrates special proficiency in hand surgery, breast reduction, and the removal of cancers from the head and neck.
Together, the doctors lead a team of skilled clinicians—many of whom have served with the doctors for more than 10 years—who revamp and beautify faces with noninvasive techniques such as microdermabrasion, facial peels, and Botox injections. Before administering any procedures or treatments, doctors consult with patients to understand their subjects' expectations and tolerance for witty knock-knock jokes.
