As a member of the national Allergan Black Diamond Partnership Program, Des Moines Plastic Surgery is recognized for demonstrating excellence in cosmetic procedures. Dr. David Robbins carries a double board certification—by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He specializes exclusively in cosmetic surgical procedures for the face, breasts, and body, performing them in a fully accredited onsite operating room. His welcoming and homelike facility is equipped with advanced laser systems for hair or tattoo removal and a noninvasive Zeltiq CoolSculpting device that freezes targeted fat cells and instantly chills cans of cola. At The Healthy Skin Center, Dr. Robbins and his medical team also offer a variety of aesthetic treatments, including dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, and permanent makeup.
One wasn't enough for Radiant Complexions Dermatology Clinics—its team of doctors and nurse practitioners have established 11 offices across Iowa and Arizona in the past decade. At each location, dermatology specialists preserve the health and unique character of all skin types with medical and cosmetic treatments. They can resolve all types of skin problems, and tend to strictly aesthetic concerns from the outside in with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers. Offices are equipped with advanced StarLux fractional lasers, which firm the skin by stimulating collagen production at the dermal layer, and VelaShape machines that use radio and light energies to reduce the appearance of cellulite and sagging skin. A scientifically formulated line of skincare products allow for at-home care with glycolic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C.
Medical aesthetician Ashley Van Zetten started her career in nursing, but earned a national laser license, and certifications in more than 30 pieces of aesthetic equipment after discovering her passion for aesthetics. At SkinGym by Ashley, named after her skin program developed in 2005, she performs non-invasive procedures using all-natural products?many of which are designed to reduce the appearance of aging?including facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. Skingym also offers a variety of light therapies to correct and restore the skin, body treatments and spray tanning, along with slimming body wraps, salt scrubs, waxing, spray tanning, and weight-loss plans to clients looking for full-body improvements.
The doctors at Skin Body Soul are constantly upgrading their cosmetic technology, improving the tools and serums they use to help clients look and feel their most stunning. At locations in Des Moines, Houston, Minneapolis, and Seattle, treatments help whiten teeth, make complexions brighter, and glue stylish hats permanently onto heads. When it comes to rejuvenating bodies from the neck down, the spa has you covered with machines, saunas, and even medical devices designed to shrink fat cells. With a little guidance during pre-treatment consultations, clients boost their own self-confidence with services physicians hand-pick and customize to suit individual goals.
The technicians at Ideal Image and Laser circumvent invasive liposuction surgery by offering treatments that shrink fat cells without breaking the skin. Zerona fat-reduction treatments emulsify fat with cold, painless lasers; afterward, lymphatic therapy on a vibrating platform helps flush away the released glycerides and water. Clients can also rid their bodies of toxins with the EB-Pro Ion Therapy System, a bath of warm, ionized water that neutralizes negatively charged toxins and draws them out through the feet.
Clinically licensed aesthetician Ericka Mayes has been buffing and improving the skin and aesthetics of clients since 1999. With a cache of paramedical expertise accrued while working alongside plastic surgeons, she now singularly focuses on personally beautifying clients with a range of medically informed skincare treatments. Mayes wields advanced light to rejuvenate the skin, hydrofacials to diminish pore size, and molten sugars to lift away unwanted hair and band-aids that just won't let go.
