At Aesthetic & Special Care Associates, doctors Keith Nguyen and Jeffrey F. Rutledge prod at plaque buildup to leave mouth pearls polished and healthy. During an initial exam, one of the dental docs will visually assess choppers' vital signs, checking for evidence of periodontal disease, decay, or hidden wiretaps and recommending a proper course of treatment for alleviating any anomalies. Bitewing x-rays allow the cuspid custodian to delve deeper into each tooth's inner workings, utilizing digital radiology to limit exposure to potentially harmful radiation. The one-hour treatment is then capped with a meticulous molar cleaning, which diligently purges each meat masher of plaque and buildup—a process designed to leave patients with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
Osteopathic Dr. Jeffrey Kerner and his medical aesthetician/medical laser technician Terri Kerner have an array of certifications and years of experience aimed toward both beautifying and improving the health of their clients. To promote healing they offer massages, herbal body wraps, and aromatic facials in attempts to improve clients' physical and mental well being.

Combining the skill of a medical center with the relaxation of a spa, First State Vein & Laser Medi Spa grants clients not only with radiant skin, but also with the luxury of being pampered. The center's suite of varicose and spider-vein therapies benefit from Dr. Nadiv Shapira's more than two decades of cardiac surgical experience and blood-flow expertise. The doctor has written articles in Living Well and Delaware Today that help explain the causes of varicose and spider veins, such as genetics, hormonal changes, obesity, and tiger Halloween costumes gone awry. The center also uses powerful technology to remove unwanted hair. Their LHE device—which stands for light, heat, and energy—uses state of the art technology to not only destroy the hair follicle and minimizes ingrown hairs, but may also improve the skin by boosting collagen production and diminishing the signs of sun spots, scars, and broken capillaries.
Salon Pasca's dedicated staff of professional stylists beautify patrons with a full range of salon services. To eliminate frizz and tame tresses for easy styling, opt for the botanical keratin treatment ($300). With a protein-rich serum and the wave of a magic hot-iron wand, the keratin treatment restructures, relaxes, and reconditions hair fibers. The resulting smooth 'do reduces the need for morning hair-styling, freeing time for other traditional antemeridiem pursuits, such as sausage-link stacking and throwing night rocks at the sun.
Currie Hair Skin & Nails performs its ministrations in ultramodern, elegant spaces as clients settle into plush robes and slippers. Stylists guide patrons into sleek leather chairs to infuse 'dos with face-framing highlights or tame overgrown head ferns with a phalanx of scissors and a blow-dry for good measure. Visages in need of amelioration may opt for the recovery facial, which revitalizes with an arctic-berry-based antioxidant serum that neutralizes free radicals and protects the skin. During an aromatherapy massage, licensed massage therapists soothe away stress from demanding jobs and dishonest parking meters, and mani-pedi specialists deftly shape and polish nails, repair broken nail beds, and curb thrill-seeking hangnails.
By performing nearly 40,000 high-tech procedures every year, the nurses and medical professionals at Look Great MD's four locations help clients fine tune their looks without invasive surgery. They smooth skin with everything from Botox to Reaction, a noninvasive device that combines radio-frequency energy and vacuum therapy to combat cellulite and firm up skin. Reaction treatments also target fat cells, as do CoolSculpting treatments, which kill fat cells by freezing them. Dr. G's physician-supervised weight-loss programs can help clients keep the weight off by teaching them how to reduce calories—all while still eating their favorite foods, not just looking at them longingly and imagining eating them.
