Audubon Women's Medical Associates' female nurse practitioners, licensed aesthetician, and board-certified physicians focus solely on meeting the needs of fellow women—whether examining future family members with ultrasounds, clearing away unwanted fuzz with laser hair removal, or soothing the day-to-day stress of balancing work and home life with massage. In addition to checkups and aesthetic treatments, the healers make over daily routines with their Transitions Lifestyle System, a nutrition-oriented program that incorporates meal planning, fitness and exercise, and behavior modification.
Dr. Jack Bertolino, Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics's owner and operator, employs a slew of modern technologies to combat his patients' signs of aging. He zaps wrinkles, cellulite, and stretch marks with his arsenal of medical-grade lasers. Along with lasers, Dr. Bertolino offers bariatric medicine to aid weight loss. Dr. Bertolino is also one of the area's only practitioners to offer bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, which introduces testosterone and estrogen back into aging bodies with time-release capsules implanted in the skin, helping men and women maintain their health, youth, and love of trampolines.
Despite spending most of their 125-plus-year history as a minor-league organization, the Bisons were a major-league club from 1879 to 1885. All told, nearly 3,000 players and managers have donned the Bisons uniform, including 20 who have been immortalized in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Currently, the Bisons compete every summer for an International League title, as well as the Thruway Cup—a regional and bragging-rights-based trophy chased by the Bisons, the Rochester Red Wings, and the Syracuse Chiefs. The Bisons have played half of their games since 1988 at Coca-Cola Field, which boasts the largest video board in the minors and an infield kept moist by hoses that spray water and not the soda that the field’s name would suggest.
Dr. Mary Louise Lenahan, a board-certified dermatologist for more than 25 years and chief of dermatology for the Catholic Health System, helms a team of highly trained professionals who evaluate and employ advanced skincare technologies to treat a range of epidermal needs. Experts use cosmetic lasers to treat rosacea, sun damage, and other planetary anomalies, and assorted cosmetic injectables—such as Botox, Dysport, and Sculptra—subdue curmudgeonly skin folds. Technicians also cosset complexions with chemical peels and extract unsightly facial and body hair from all skin types under the medically informed direction of Dr. Lenahan, who, in addition to being a member of the Buffalo-Rochester Dermatology Society, is also a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.
At ReJuvenere Medical Spa, board-certified family physician Richard M. Junke and his wife, Suzanne––a registered nurse––treat every visitor the way they would if they were welcoming them into their own home. Guests enjoy complimentary wine, coffee, or tea as they relax in the cozy, parlor-like living room, where a plush, cream-colored sofa offers views of dark-wood shelves stocked with homey knickknacks and products by lines such as Environ and Revision Skincare. After they've finished unwinding and checking armchair cushions for change, clients are shown to private treatment rooms, where Dr. Junke's skilled technicians, aestheticians, and massage therapists await to rejuvenate them from the outside in.
The cosmetic procedures include everything from classic pedicures to wrinkle-erasing dermal fillers, as well as eight types of therapeutic facials, each of which begins with a skin analysis to pinpoint problems such as dehydration, deep-set wrinkles, and acne. Beyond the day-spa basics, the office also boasts an advanced lineup of skincare technology, which includes a YAG vein-removal laser and a skin-resurfacing fractional CO2 laser, which was showcased on an episode of The Doctors.
