Kevin S. Huelsman, DDS, wields 15 years of experience in preventive and cosmetic dentistry to craft smoldering smiles with state-of-the-art technology. Savvy intraoral cameras lend eyes a rare view of incisors and their private mansions during a comprehensive oral exam, which inspects chompers for cavities and other mouth maladies. Bitewing x-rays delve deeply into the inner psyche of introverted molars to unveil oft-overlooked signs of inter-tooth decay and gum disease, before fluoride-filled trays are deployed to fortifying enamel against driving attacks from bacteria and sugars. A meticulous cleaning then gives the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of inevitable meal remnants. You'll leave with a smile bright enough to melt hearts, including your own, so be careful around mirrors.
Skin Perfect's staff uses customized treatment and the most sophisticated techniques and technology to help your skin feel and look its best through exfoliation, nourishment, and protection regimens. Therapies and treatments are based on the individual condition of your skeleton-cover and on what you want your skin to become. A microcurrent facelift (a $125 value) delivers gentle electrical stimulation to facial tissue via a two-pronged instrument, triggering the release of natural chemicals that help combat the effects of aging, such as wrinkles, jowls, and cheekbones grown rigid and dogmatic in their political views. Skin Perfect services run deeper than the epidermal level, however. Attack sinus congestion and maddening allergic itching with Asian ear candling ($50), a treatment that involves inserting a long, hollow candle coated with beeswax into your ear while you lie comfortably on your side, free to daydream of a simpler time when movies starring orangutans actually stood for something. When lit, the candle draws excess ear wax and fungus from the ear canal and also helps loosen mucus in the sinuses and lymph glands.
