Named Best Cosmetic Surgeon of 2010 by City Living Magazine, Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom combines surgical savvy with an artistic eye to release ravishing visages from drooping or damaged skin. Every treatment begins with an in-depth consultation that collects information on patients' medical history and most common childhood Kool-Aid mustache color to determine how to tailor procedures for an authentic, youthful look. Those who choose the Radiesse option will receive an injection of 0.8 cc of the FDA-approved volumizing filler into sagging areas for more cherubic cheeks or fuller features all around. Naturally metabolized, Radiesse prompts the body to build more collagen, extending the plumping results for up to nine months.
Allied Rehabilitation Center contends that a critical part of healing is a belief in oneself. Once this is in place, therapy is quicker, more effective, and more fulfilling. The center offers physical rehabilitation through massage and athletic bodywork, as well as more dynamic approaches, such as aquatic therapy and dangling happiness in front of your treadmill. Whatever service you opt for, Allied's experienced technicians are dedicated to helping you achieve optimal health.
Drs. Clare Williams and Nicole Seymour at Audiologic Hearing Services want to be heard loud and clear. For many of their patients, this requires using a hearing aid to pump up the sounds of important conversations. As audiologists, these doctors conduct hearing tests and consultations in addition to hearing-aid fittings, adjustments, and repairs.
As a family physician, Dr. Zainab Nawab advocates preventive medicine, but she also recognizes that aging is the one condition no amount of treatment can prevent. That's why, in her role at Vitalize MD, she oversees services designed to offset the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Her methods are decidedly high-tech: when she's not tightening the skin with 3DEEP radio-frequency treatments, she's erasing fine lines with the Fraxel system's microscopic lasers and injectables such as Botox and Dysport. Even the products the center uses during its five facials—and sells to clients—have a medical bent, from the clinically tested SkinMedica line of cleansers to Jane Iredale's dermatologist-endorsed mineral makeup.
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.
