Aesthetic procedures benefit from cutting-edge medical expertise at Revitalize MD MedSpa and Laser Center. As the center's medical directors, Drs. Tiffany Hall and Amina Husain rely on their extensive experience in fields ranging from obstetrics to reconstructive surgery. However, they also offer nonsurgical methodologies as they help clients obtain their desired complexion or body shape. They accomplish this by enlisting the aid of modern advancements in aesthetic technology and skincare products.
Using the Candela GentleYAG and Alexandrite cosmetic-laser systems, technicians can improve skin tone by zapping unsightly stubble or sealing noticeable spider veins. The low-power YOLO Curve laser contours the body by shrinking stubborn fat deposits, and VelaShape technology accomplishes a similar goal by bombarding adipose tissues with a combination of bipolar radio frequencies and infrared-light energy. While permanent makeup procedures can create timeless, natural-looking eyebrows or eyeliner, the med spa can also use a Q-switched laser system to remove tattoos.
Beyond medically assisted therapies, Revitalize MD MedSpa and Laser Center also pampers visitors with an array of more traditional spa treatments. Alternatively, aestheticians can restore skin by performing facials with clinical-strength products by companies such as Obagi.
Dennis Van Scoy founded Van Scoy Hair Clinics in 1969 to help people with thinning hair—a group that includes Van Scoy himself—to find more options for hairstyling. Today, Van Scoy is a sought-after instructor for hair-replacement designers; he’s also a national lecturer and a consultant for leading international manufacturers. Since founding the clinics, Van Scoy’s reach has expanded from the original location in Ashland to two additional clinics in Cleveland and Columbus, which he operates with the help of his wife, Sandra, and sons, Scott and Todd.
The staff at the three clinics draws from more than 150 years of hair-restoration experience and the latest industry developments to transplant, replace, and prevent the loss of hair. They are trained to perform a patented technique by PAI Medical Group called Multi-Unit Hair Grafting, during which they can transplant two to three times more hair (up to 8,000 hairs) than a traditional transplant. Technicians also use the Sensi-Graft system to provide a semipermanent solution to hair loss without surgery.
Among the other high-tech procedures offered: the high-tech Cyberhair, which helps in natural-looking hair replacement, or laser light hair therapy, which works to prevent hair loss and uncover any treasure maps tattooed to your head.

She's been in the beauty industry since the invention of combs, which was almost 15 years ago.
As Shawon Brown-Gullette told Robin McMacken of the Dayton Daily News, she keeps a box of tissues near her hair-system station at Infinitee Trichology Centre. But they aren't there to curb sneezes or fold into origami. According to Brown-Gullette, they absorb the tears of joy and renewed self-confidence that the hair-loss expert often witnesses as she outfits clients with discrete hairpieces that match the natural color and texture of surrounding hair.
Brown-Gullette—who is certified through the International Association of Trichologists and who has presented local seminars on hair loss—takes a holistic approach to reversing alopecia, one that may require a commitment to a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition. After running medical tests to explore the root causes for thinning hair, Brown-Gullette employs several personalized treatments, including the use of electrotherapy, ultraviolet rays, and low-level laser therapy.
