A longtime resident of Windsor, Dr. Patrick Smith, M.D. returned to the area after completing medical school and opened a family practice in 1987. He enjoyed the work but longed to transition into dermatology, for which he held both a passion and professional training. Years later, he assembled a team of estheticians and opened his namesake skincare clinic: Dr. P.X. Smith Medical Cosmetics.
Open for more than seven years, the clinic offers cosmetic and medical-grade services including Botox and Juvederm, laser skin-resurfacing treatments, and mole removal from both faces and lawns. Dr. Smith performs all medical consultations and directly supervises treatments performed by his highly trained staff.
As a skincare expert, the doctor is dedicated to educating his community about the dangers of excessive sun exposure. He worked at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre before starting his family practice and coordinated the Mark Hunt Melanoma Awareness Fund-Raising Walk to heighten awareness of skin cancer, particularly malignant melanoma.
As their name suggests, the technicians at TLC Tecumseh Laser Center are expert at aiming concentrated pulses of light at unwanted body hair to oust it from various locales during laser hair-removal treatments or at unwanted fat to help slim waistline, hips, or thighs during Zerona treatments. But the staff doesn't limit its services to just lasers. They wield the Venus Freeze body-contouring system to help reduce fat and tighten skin via magnetic pulses and radio waves. A variety of facials, peels, and teeth-whitening services are also available.
On an extensive résumé that boasts more than 25 years of experience, what stands out is Dr. Haitham Masri's distinction as Michigan's first board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He and other doctors helm his namesake clinic, each one wielding his or her own specialized expertise to focus on different parts of the body. Before beginning any surgery, they take as much time as necessary to answer questions and explain procedures with detailed brochures, slideshows, and diagrams.
Alongside the center’s cosmetic surgery specialty is the nonsurgical branch, where minimally invasive procedures geared toward enhancing outer appearances require less downtime. Aestheticians resurface faces with chemical peels, smooth wrinkles with dermal fillers, and man lasers to remove unwanted hair and leave bodies smooth.
Laser Duet corrects a variety of bodily imperfections with its laser and spa services. Armed with Zerona noninvasive lasers, staffers skim inches from the body by emulsifying adipose tissue for later removal through the lymphatic system. They create hair-free surfaces with the LightSheer Duet laser, and use the DiamondTome skin-resurfacing system to exfoliate and vacuum away dead skin cells. Laser Duet also creates a calming atmosphere with facials and massages, designed to put the mind, body, and permanent pantsuit at ease.
Fusion Medical Spa operates under the supervision of Dr. Ayoub Sayeg, and its services reflect this clinical pedigree. Often, treatments make use of high-tech equipment, such as lasers that attack hair at the follicle level and microdermabrasion wands that rid faces of dead skin cells. Permanent makeup for the eyes, lips, and other features draws out the natural beauty in clients or the fading marker-faces of coconuts.
Helmed by a husband-and-wife team, the staff at Eternally Young Clinic offers several avenues by which clients may attain younger, healthier appearances. Doctors can minimize the appearance of forehead creases and crow’s-feet with Botox injections, and they use other dermal fillers to carry that smoothness down to the cheeks and lips. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels resurface complexions victimized by sun damage and blemishes, revealing the smoother skin hiding just underneath. But beauty does not begin and end at the chin, which is why the clinic offers full-body treatments such as laser hair removal and i-Lipo—a body-contouring treatment that helps clients slim down without undergoing surgery or hula-hooping cross country.
