A Duke University School of Medicine graduate, Dr. Adam Stein supplemented his education by completing a fellowship in facial and plastic surgery. Today, the board-certified facial plastic surgeon uses his 20-plus years of surgical experience and instinctive artistic aptitude to carefully enhance patients' appearances. Dr. Stein utilizes a unique computer-imaging system that allows patients to see how they'd look after a face-lift, nose job, or third-eye augment. Patients also visit his earth-toned, artwork-laden office for nonsurgical treatments, such as wrinkle-smoothing beauty injections and skin-rejuvenating laser resurfacing treatments.

Dr. Edward Dickerson, a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, serves the aesthetic needs of bodies with a mélange of med-spa services. Aim laser abduction at unwanted strands to ready the body for beaches, summer outings, and races against dolphins. During each treatment, lasers heat follicles to deter them from producing new hair. The defuzzing can be applied to different eligible areas, but using all three on one area, like watching all three Mad Max films at the same time, produces the most lasting results.

Extink Tattoo Removal’s certified laser technician clears away unwanted inks from skinscapes with an FDA-approved laser. The YAG laser's lightning-fast pulses penetrate the inked skin, breaking up pigments and releasing the inks to be safely evicted from the premises by white blood cells. Though some colors stubbornly cling to the epidermis like a baby sloth to a surrogate dog mother, most inks fade noticeably after one treatment, with some tattoos vanishing completely after several iterations. The process lasts approximately 10–15 minutes, and yields minimal pain and side effects. Previous patients have reported a sensation similar to snapping a rubber band against the skin and mild redness or swelling after the procedure.
