Patients meet with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Harold E. Beam amid the contemporary décor of his office or the tranquil setting of his med spa to plan surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Using brands such as Obagi Medical and Skinceuticals, aestheticians soften surfaces and address imperfections through facials, peels, dermaplaning, and microdermabrasion. A collection of injectables reduces signs of aging and augments facial features, helping lips reach their full capacity or eyebrows raise in the least judgmental manner.
Sparse eyebrows, thin lips, and lingering scars are no match for A Better Image's SofTap permanent makeup. Aestheticians use a microprobe to gently inject natural-looking pigments around the eyes, lips, areola, or anywhere else that needs more pigment, including those bearing the vestiges of burns or surgery. The tattooing process is entirely the choice of the client, who can choose how subtle or dramatic they wish their new look to be. A Better Image also offers permanent hair removal and eyebrow shaping services.
Sunny Waitze, M.D. and fellow of the American College of Surgeons, oversees Pomperaug Plastic Surgery/Ageless Medi Spa, where clients receive a variety of surgical and med-spa treatments for their skin and body. Services range from breast modifications to noninvasive skin rejuvenation intended to increase collagen and tightness.
Dr. Sandra V. Kristiansen heads the capable staff at the AdonisMD Cosmetic Surgery Center, one that specializes in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures and houses a physician onsite daily. Avoiding general anesthesia, they use only local anesthesia to help minimize downtime. Doctors can perform several treatments designed to abate unsightly leg veins, such as endovenous laser treatments, which use tiny laser fibers within the vein to close them up. Other treatments include fat transfer, where the client's own fat is removed, purified, and re-injected into a different area of the body to help achieve a more youthful look. There's also IPL hair removal and laser liposuction, the latter of which liquefies and removes fat via a tiny cannula. Established in 1997 and BBB accredited, AdonisMD Cosmetic Surgery Center now operates in a brand-new facility with optimal highway access.
The trio of tattoo artists at Mountainside Tattoo & Piercing transform skin into canvas by coloring hands, feet, and all areas in between with vibrant ink. Customers can choose from thousands of designs or come up with a tattoo of their own. One of the artists makes it permanent using high-quality Kuro Sumi ink. For those in need of a new piercing, the shop also emblazons navels, ears, and more with body jewelry.
La Prestiges Salon and Spa combines s8alon and spa services under one roof to save clients from wasting gas driving all over town for their aesthetic and relaxation needs. A one-stop pampering shop, the salon and spa houses a staff of beauty professionals who reshape shaggy hairstyles or craft complete makeovers using Paul Mitchell products along with their very own comb and scissor savvy. The aestheticians can treat skin with pumpkin, chocolate, or vitamin-C facials and set skin aglow with spray tans. Nail technicians dazzle hands and feet with mani-pedis and tiny, breathtaking nail designs, whereas makeup artists enhance the natural beauty of facial features with skilled cosmetics application and optional helmet-mounted spotlights. Meanwhile, laser techs use laser light to remove unwanted hair from the face, arms, and legs.
