Each year, skincare company Rhonda Allison sponsors a 90-day Face-Off Competition, which awards the aesthetician who makes the most drastic improvements on a patient's skin. In 2006, aesthetician Helene won first place by using a series of peels and Acculift facial-toning sessions. She employs those same award-winning techniques at her skincare studio, Youthful Solutions by Helene. Additionally, she offers facials, microphototherapy, and Pressotherapy, a cellulite-removal technique that was honed by printing-press inventor Johannes Gutenberg.
A Greenville hairstylist for more than six years, Morgan Blackwell Williams of Hair Creations by Morgan prides herself on creating enduring associations with each of her clients. Morgan ensures her clippers are up-to-date by participating in yearly continuing-education classes, augmenting her list of classic services?such as cuts, highlights, and color treatments?with the latest in tress trends, including feather extensions and Pop Rocks hairnets. Aided by her licensed assistant, Ashleigh Blackwell, the skilled stylist metamorphoses straight locks with permanent and semipermanent texture waves and unwinds corkscrews with formaldehyde-free keratin treatments. In addition to grownup coiffures, Morgan tends to kids' ?dos and infant's first cuts, giving tots the chance to weigh in on part placement and how sporting a mohawk puts them at a great disadvantage during games of duck, duck, goose.
In 2004, board-certified doctor Thaer A. Joudeh realized his vision of a medical practice run by physicians who consider patient care, not corporate interests, their main priority. Alongside a considerate staff, he oversees the Southside Medical Center's health and cosmetic services. The team's individual specialties coalesce to form a support network for entire families. They treat ailments from headaches to allergies to conditions requiring minor surgery and strive to regard their guests as they would their own relatives. Their hair-, wrinkle-, and spider-vein-removal treatments enlist the help of a gentle Candela laser, which treats all skin types with its cryogen cooling system to minimize discomfort and maximize games of connect-the-goosebumps.

Dr. Thomas McFadden may not be an artist, but he makes the human body his canvas. After studying under three of the world?s most experience cosmetic surgeons, Dr. McFadden stepped into his own practice where he spends time getting to know his patients and understanding their aesthetic desires so that their surgeries result in the looks they?ve envisioned. A staff of anesthesia personnel and registered nurses work alongside Dr. McFadden, aiding him in his state-of-the-art surgery center and in performing less invasive treatments, such as facials, hair removal, and dermal fillers, which reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
At Greenville Vein & Aesthetics, board-certified surgeon Dr. Donald Gilbert leads a team of medical professionals who employ lasers to wage war on varicose veins, unwanted fuzz, and wrinkles. They also rejuvenate skin with Botox injections, which help smooth down wrinkles, and with SkinMedica chemical peels, which can tighten skin and mitigate acne scarring. By evaluating six different dermal components, Visia Complexion Analysis helps staffers decide which treatments suit clients best and which points to bring up during joint counseling appointments with their breakout-prone noses.
