Boasting an expert staff led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Justin Piasecki, MD, and Lisa Davenport, RN-BSN, Harbor Plastic Surgery tightens wrinkles and beautifies mugs within their intimate boutique-style practice. Each 60-minute treatment begins with a complimentary cosmetic consultation to determine if the minimally invasive procedure is right for each patient’s crevice-filling needs. Crows' feet, frown folds, and Father Time’s tic-tac-toe games will quickly retreat from facial trenches after an injection of Botox or Dysport––both of which temporarily paralyze the muscles, reducing the unsightly lines that repetitive muscle movement can cause. About two to seven days following injection, countenances emanate smoother rays for three to six months, freeing even the most diligent brows from evidence of past feats of furrowing strength.
At Artistic Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Khash A. Dehghan and a team of specialists educate clients on the risks and benefits of aesthetic, cosmetic, and surgical procedures before performing treatments that enhance outward appeal. Drawing on more than a dozen years of experience, Dr. Dehghan modifies or enhances nearly any area of the body with procedures including chin augmentation, facelifts, and rhinoplasty. Anna Johnston, a Euro Institute of Skin Care graduate, makeup artist, and medical aesthetician, supplements the center's surgical procedures with spa services such as derma planing or chemical peels, which remove dull, dead cells or dry, flaky milk moustaches.
Laser light is a quick, relatively painless, and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods. The surrounding tissue is unaffected, and there is little to no irritation of the skin. Most areas usually require three to six treatments performed in six- to ten-week intervals to fully rid the dermis of unwelcome fur. Dr. Robert Niedblaski and the certified professionals at the physician-owned-and-operated Laser Hair & Skin Center will strip your lip of unwanted strands ($396 per package; a package is up to five treatments) or whip your bikini line ($796 per package) into two-piece shape just in time for Unusually Casual Friday at the office.
Serenity Spa and Natural Health Clinic's eco-friendly sanctuary wraps well-worn bodies in relaxing energy with an array of holistic healing treatments. The 60- to 90-minute acupuncture treatment strives to release tension and stress wedged, like squatting trolls, along the body's factory lines of energy. Designed to create a spacious tunnel for the chi (energy) to flow, fine needles are delicately inserted into critical pressure points along the physique, potentially helping to relieve allergies or treat autoimmune diseases and pulmonary disorders. Further bolstering relaxation, the 15- to 20-minute aromatherapy foot and head massage works to invigorate the senses with scented oils, soothing strokes, and an absence of heavy-metal music.
Tacoma Laser Clinic tackles blemishes with advanced technology and aesthetic know-how. Its staff is trained in laser systems and dermal fillers, which could help clients look young enough to get carded even when they're buying a rum cake with "Happy 30th Birthday to Me!" written in icing. Their treatments include laser hair removal, Botox, and myriad skincare treatments for everything from lack of elasticity to discoloration. Tacoma Laser also offers tattoo removal should clients want to remove inked designs they now regret, such as the one on their shoulder that reads, "Happy 30th Birthday to Me!"
