Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat and his highly trained and experienced Botox injection technicians smoothes brows, de-furrows frown lines, and scatters crow’s feet with Botox injections. After an informative, free consultation, patients recline in a chair or bed as the doctor determines where to place the injections and which eyebrow can best pull off highlights. No anesthesia is required during the 10-minute procedure, but clients can request a cold pack to numb soon-to-be-smoothed faces before the practitioner injects tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into facial furrows. Within as little as a few days, the solution eases stubborn wrinkles' grasp on foreheads and brow lines, diminishing their appearance and late-night dance parties for up to four months. Clients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Licensed naturopathic physician Dr. Leny Eidsmore of Highlands Naturopathic Physician often fuses botanical remedies and Chinese medicine to help bring bodies into balance, but she doesn't ignore the role of technology in healing. When Dr. Eidsmore meets clients for free consultations, she takes a holistic approach to determining treatment goals by asking about health history, current medications, and the last time the client was struck by lightning. From there, she may prescribe custom nutritional plans or begin aesthetic treatments, such as reducing cellulite with detoxification and radiofrequency therapy or minimizing rosacea and acne with IPL treatments.
Like a good relationship or a flower with a fertilizer addiction, Shador is growing. The staff of sugaring experts and aestheticians recently migrated to a new space, which has meant an upgrade in facilities and the ability to offer massages. Each service, from botanically based detoxifying body wraps to custom facials, helps to beautify and relax clients. For hair removal, the staff eschews the discomfort of hot wax in favor of a natural sugaring serum that pulls hair out in the direction of growth, and favored strands are magnified through the individual application of synthetic or mink eyelash extensions.
Eyebrow reshaping with threading, along with hair waxing and facials, are a sampling of the specialty services administered by the Hair Rageous team. The styling squad also straightens unruly locks, eradicates frizz with keratin treatments, and trims the tresses of ladies and gents. Elsewhere, at Hair Rageous' medi-spa, laser hair technicians work with Alma Soprano XLi laser hair-removal equipment that adapts to all skin and hair types—including tanned skin and most hair colors—as it heats follicles lurking beneath skin.
With 25 years of professional practice, board-certified nurse practitioner Margaret L. Larson leads the team Larson Medical Aesthetics in performing cosmetic procedures in a medically sound environment. Margaret and the rest of the licensed staff smooth away wrinkles with injections of Botox and Juvéderm and improve epidermal appearances with devices developed by Alma Lasers. Patients can also visit the center for laser hair reduction, skin rejuvenation, skin-tightening and resurfacing treatments, or metabolic detox programs, which promote health more effectively than eating an apple one day or adding bits of a Men's Health magazine to a protein smoothie.
