Headed by veteran plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten, Central Ohio Plastic Surgery beautifies bodies with a suite of advanced cosmetic procedures. Botox treatments use injections of purified protein to paralyze wrinkle-causing muscles, smoothing out the epidermal furrows that can often obscure detailed facial tattoos. All procedures are performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon fully trained in administering injections safely and professionally. Appointments take about half an hour, and the injections themselves take only five minutes, allowing patients to defeat unwanted wrinkles during a lunch break or the boring part of a favorite feature-length infomercial. Full effects are usually apparent after two weeks, and the results last up to four to six months.
Sarah L. Schoolcraft, a licensed massage therapist who honed her skills at Mountain State School of Massage, has been in practice for more than 10 years.

Detoxifying wraps, herbal facials, and other beautifying treatments complete the spa experience.
A medical facility dedicated to restoring skin to its youthful vibrancy, Menage-a-Spa treats clients under the guidance of the State of Ohio Medical Boards while keeping all procedures confidential. A board-certified staff of doctors, nurses, and dermatological experts reignites complexions until they glow with renewed radiance. Eradicate unwanted guest appearances by pores, blackheads, and shallow acne scars with a noninvasive microdermabrasion treatment that exfoliates and suctions up debris better than a diamond-tipped wet-vac, leaving faces looking younger and refreshed.
Tucked amid the forests of Hocking Hills, Big Pine Retreat's cedar cabins couple rustic décor with contemporary amenities just a short trek from natural caves and the banks of Hocking River. In each of the hillside hideaways, a full kitchen and satellite TV treat guests to homey comforts, and a hot tub makes a luxurious spot to soothe aching muscles or stressed-out rubber duckies. In the intimate Mingo cabin, a gas-log fireplace crackles warmly, and wooden rockers sway on covered porches as guests take in scenic views of the surrounding woodlands and forest wildlife. The roomy Shawnee cabin sleeps up to six people, and guests can bring their own firewood or spontaneously combusting, unwatered Christmas trees to stoke an outdoor campfire. Adventurers can hike the nearby trails or ride horseback past rushing brooks and blue herons congenially chirping the Lone Ranger theme.
