Dr. James Kerchner, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and registered nurse Kelly Dorsten have been providing aesthetic upgrades to clients for more than 20 years. They fight wrinkles and plump up lips with Botox injections and dermal fillers. They use a diode-laser system, which treats all skin and most hair types, to remove body hair peeking out of sandals, bathing suits, and chain mail. They also stock products from Rejuve and Vivité to help clients expand their skincare regimens beyond the office doors. For more intensive facial rejuvenation, Dr. Kerchner calls upon 30 years of performing oral surgery to remove wisdom teeth, install dental implants, and perform surgical jaw reconstruction.
Dr. Geoffrey Polen supervises Advanced Laser Skin Center?s team of experienced and
qualified aestheticians as they use prescription-strength skincare products to minimize blemishes and signs of aging. Visitors to either of the center's two locations recline on treatment chairs in private rooms while aestheticians renovate their skin. The staff also polishes complexions with medical-grade facials, such as microdermabrasion treatments that suck away debris with a miniature vacuum and medical peels that swipe away blemishes, flatten wrinkles, administer necessary injections, and erase monocles drawn in permanent marker. Each visit is intended to help patients leave their visit completely refreshed and rejuvenated.
In addition to aestheticians that focus on skin rejuvenation, Advanced Laser Skin Center employs licensed massage therapists that expertly treat and relax muscles in sessions geared to revitalize in the same spirit as the skin rejuvenating treatments.
At Godiva Laser, a medical staff directed by Dr. Stephen England takes time for a complimentary consultation with each patient, answering questions and explaining all aspects of each aesthetically enhancing treatment. Injections of FDA-approved Botox smooth crow's-feet, creased foreheads, and six-packs developing between the brows. High-quality dermal fillers, synthesized in the United States, restore sleek skin and youthful fullness to faces, and laser hair-reduction treatments for both men and women zap follicles until they retire from the business of hair growing.
Overseen by Dr. Jennifer Cova, the nurses at The Complete Women's Practice apply specialized knowledge of the female body to protect and promote its health. Dr. Cova administers ob-gyn care and surgical services, approaching each patient as an individual, rather than as a number or Scrabble tile. Staff members supplement health care with cosmetic services, including laser treatments for skin rejuvenation or hair removal, facial treatments, and Botox and dermal fillers. Warm, modern treatment rooms in the spa-like office contain 27-inch computer screens that showcase treatment options and educational videos.
Dr. James Apesos, a board-certified and published plastic surgeon, oversees his fellow doctors and aestheticians at The Plastic Surgery Pavilion, which is nestled within a building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1956. The producers of both a CBS television special and ABC?s 20/20 have sought his expertise, which he uses to help his clients improve their self-images and daily function with a prolific list of surgical and non-invasive cosmetic treatments.
Dr. Torres oversees noninvasive FDA-approved Zerona laser body-sculpting treatments within the serene confines of their elegantly decorated office. After discussing basic medical histories, treatment goals, and the most efficient way to eat a peanut-butter cup, doctors invite patients to repose upon earth-toned spa beds for the first of six 40-minute treatments. The low-level Zerona laser emulsifies subcutaneous fat, allowing it to slip through cell walls like a secret agent through a banana-peeling factory. Patients read, make phone calls, or simply relax as the laser targets trouble zones on the hips, the thighs, the waist, or the arms. The treatment does not require any downtime, though best results are achieved when all six sessions are completed within two weeks.
