The doctors at Great Lakes Dermatology help patients look their best with a full range of medical and cosmetic treatments. They address everything from psoriasis and malevolent moles to wrinkles and leg veins. Botox injections tame wrinkle muscles for months on end, and laser treatments zap sun spots, pigmented blemishes, and fencing scars.
Many doctors are happy with just one medical degree. Dr. Vladimir Panine has two—one from his native Moscow and one from the Boston University School of Medicine, which preceded his residency at Stanford University. Since 1994, he’s applied his extensive medical knowledge to beauty treatments that vanquish dermal imperfections, slim bodies, and remove antennae. In combination with his cosmetic treatments, Dr. Panine uses professional skincare products, such as My Body, Gly Derm, and Avene.
Under the direction of Dr. Thomas Heggen, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., cosmetic surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Ob-Gyn, the veteran staff at Your Medicos specializes in plastic surgery, med-spa treatments, and family medicine infused with holistic healing techniques. Medical experts stage extreme makeovers and help bodies fit back into their high-school footie pajamas with liposuction or face-lifts and use noninvasive laser treatments with FDA-approved tools to expel unwanted body hair and tighten skin. Physician-grade skincare products from Glytone rejuvenate countenances and European ultrasound-cavitation technology slenderizes bodies. Your Medicos' technicians also draw upon chiropractic services, Eastern-inspired acupuncture, and herbal medicine to bolster the traditional Western healing technique of wrapping patients in the U.S. flag and singing the national anthem until they feel better.
The discreet and experienced therapists at North Shore Colonics purify their patients with detoxifying colon hydrotherapy treatments that help restore balance and functionality to the body. Stagnant waste in the body’s intestines can be related to a multitude of internal problems including abdominal distention, backaches, and the decline of NASA and, if left untreated, can prevent the body from properly absorbing nutrients and efficiently disposing of waste. After an initial consultation, the affable administrators conduct the colon hydrotherapy session with skill, blending bedside manner with gentle massage and accurate colon irrigation to admonish accumulated intestinal barnacles and give squatting bacteria their eviction notices. During the quiet, odorless session, therapists are happy to answer questions about healthful diet choices and how to remain internally hydrated. Post-treatment, hydrotherapy recipients may feel light and spry, with restored energy and a stronger immune system, or reap the rewards of weight loss, decreased food cravings, reduced bloating, and ego-boosting catcalls during airport-security body scans.
