All About Cosmetic is totally focused on beauty enhancements that fend off aging, acne, and other annoyances.

A trio of physicians—a dermatologist, an ophthalmic surgeon, and a plastic surgeon—keeps watch over both DermaBare offices, warding off signs of aging from wrinkles to cellulite. Registered nurses aim to obliterate unwanted hair at the root using one of three advanced laser hair-removal machines: the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, Candela GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro. Heated energy rays can also be pointed at faces to help encourage collagen production or send spider veins scattering off of legs and underneath the floorboards.
