"My first guest is a cosmetic surgeon who is an expert on quick-fix makeovers," Montel Williams announced to his studio audience on a fall day in 2007. "Please welcome Dr. Sofia Rubbani to the show!" After her introduction, Dr. Rubbani proceeded to straighten out a woman's crooked nose with dermal fillers, beef up a pair of thin lips, and erase spider veins with a laser, all in a clinic set up backstage.
Hailing from New York, Dr. Rubbani continues to tout the benefits of these speedy, nonsurgical procedures at Tucson Cosmetics. She expertly injects solutions, such as fillers, collagen, and plasma, to iron out facial wrinkles with minimal downtime. She also makes use of Thermage's radio-frequency energies to tighten skin and send secret messages to truckers. For those seeking more dramatic results, Dr. Rubbani surgically alters droopy eyelids, removes moles, and mends torn earlobes.
Within Specialists in Dermatology's 16,200-square-foot facility, board-certified physicians and physician assistants aim to maintain or beautify skin through general, cosmetic, and surgical procedures. Consultations help skin doctors and patients to craft general treatment plans that can stop the spread of conditions such as acne, hair loss, and polka dots. Spa-like cosmetic services treat the body's outer layer to chemical peels, and high-tech, non-invasive treatments zap off unwanted hair and freeze stubborn fat cells. The clinic's surgical team can also treat more serious issues such as skin cancer. Each of Specialists in Dermatology's physician assistants must pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination to obtain a two-year certification and learn the 500 different ways to pronounce "freckle."
Under the guidance of medical director and board-certified internist Dr. Jyotsna Sahni, the team at Laser 1 enhances clients' natural beauty with clinical-grade services, including Botox, chemical peels, and laser treatments. The certified medical laser technicians bring about smoother complexions with collagen-boosting Fraxel laser sessions and Isolaz acne procedures. Dysport and Botox injections help reduce fine lines by reducing muscle contractions, whereas various peels and facials make skin glow like a bowling alley on cosmic-bowling night.
A former USAF physician and two-sport Ivy League athlete, Dr. David J. Orringer leads a team of compassionate professionals in maintaining well-being with immediate medical care and cosmetic procedures. The clinic treats minor illnesses and injuries for walk-ins, who may receive care more quickly than they would in a typical emergency room. Along with urgent care, the clinic offers physician-supervised weight-loss programs and a variety of cosmetic treatments, including Botox and fillers.
Led by Dr. Nicole Gullick, Transformations By M.D. is a cosmetic facility dedicated to boosting the confidence and emotional wellbeing of its patients by helping them attain their physical appearance goals. Unlike traditional hair-removal treatments performed by unlicensed circus knife throwers, Dr. Gullick lassos the depilatory power of light to remove your persnickety peach fuzz safely and painlessly. IPL, or intense pulsed light technology, generally takes only one or two treatments to produce the desired effect, works equally well on light or dark hair, and typically takes less time to administer than other laser hair-removal procedures.
