Stroll the halls of Youthologie Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Medicine and you'll come across walls of reclaimed brick, shelves of salvaged wood, and eco-resin doors. It's fitting that the LEED-certified facility does just as much to preserve the environment as it does to preserve youth, with board-certified surgeon Dr. Lisa Hogan at its helm.
Dr. Hogan has spent more than 13 years practicing anti-aging medicine, and her clinic's services reflect that fact. Her customized facials rely on organic products to combat acne and control pigments, and her peels improve uneven textures and eradicate sun damage. Her other treatments range from laser hair and vein removal to hormonal balancing programs, which consist of nutritional advice and hormone prescriptions based on lab analyses. Dr. Hogan is also a recognized expert in permanent lip enhancement.
For more than 20 years, Lowry Porter Ophthalmology's staff has helped to improve vision and ocular health at their full-service medical, surgical, and optical shop. To better care for their clients, ophthalmologists R. Frank Lowry Jr. and Isaac W. Porter focus on specialties: Dr. Lowry has performed more than 8,000 LASIK procedures, and Dr. Porter completed a fellowship at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary in Chicago to become a cornea and refractive surgeon. Their extensive experience prepares them to handle everything from thorough vision check-ups to entrenched monocle removal. Once armed with fresh prescriptions, patients can browse a spacious optical boutique stocked with designer frames by Kate Spade, Gucci, Fendi, and Flexon.
The staff at All About Aesthetics treats patients under the direction of Dr. Deborah Hudak, a board-certified ophthalmologist and oculofacial surgeon. Depending on the client's needs, Dr. Hudak and her staff can take a variety of different approaches. They offer nonsurgical treatments to address problems associated with aging, as well as surgeries including brow lifts, chin augmentations, face-lifts, and fat-removing meso-lipotherapy. These nonsurgical methods include microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and facials, treatments that aim to renew youthful glows extinguished by a sneeze to the face from Father Time.
Ildiko Varga, a certified laser specialist with more than 18 years of experience, shepherds uninvited follicular flocks out of bodily pastures with swift, noninvasive laser precision. Over three meetings, ladies can purge pelts from a slew of areas, including bikini lines (a $125 value/treatment); face, lip, and sideburns (a $125 value/treatment); or underarms (a $100 value/treatment). Men can exile whiskers from the beard area down to the front of the neck (a $175 value/treatment), declare each eyebrow an independent entity (a $35 value/treatment), or make abdomens as smooth as a freshly greased orca (a $100 value/treatment). Each session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour.
North Raleigh Chiropractic's first defense against recurring pain is its no-wait policy. Rather than having patients endure their aches in a lobby, they immediately invite them into the exam room—often on the same day as their scheduling call. Dr. Joseph Harris then discusses their symptoms, inspecting their spines for misalignment and injury. He aims to both reduce and prevent discomfort with a variety of tools: a spinal decompression table facilitates treatments for pinched nerves and ailing discs, whereas a vibrational platform can reinforce skeletal strength and soothe muscle spasms.
New Century Ophthalmology's two optometrists draw upon a mix of corrective tools and surgeries for one purpose: to help people see better. Dr. Jindal, the center's board-certified ophthalmologist, has performed more than 15,000 procedures alone to remove cataracts, correct glaucoma, and decrease x-ray vision. And the eye-care center deftly handles less severe hindrances to sight, too. Its contact lenses span a range of styles and brands, and its waiting-room eyeglasses display sports the latest styles from Gucci, Ray-Ban, Michael Kors, and more.
