A face can both hide and reveal a person's age, just as a hand can both hide and reveal a child's nose after an uncle has mysteriously removed it. Enlighten bewildered facial features with today's Groupon: for $999, you get a Deka SmartXide DOT Therapy session at PHR Centers, with locations in Livonia and Plymouth (a $2,500 value).
Boasting more than 30 years of skin-smoothing experience, PHR Centers' trained technicians employ lasers to erase outer imperfections. Deka SmartXide DOT Therapy rids the entire face—excluding the eye lids—of wrinkles, sun damage, scarring, and graffiti using a carbon dioxide fractional resurfacing laser. The 60-minute light show cascades visages with pulsated light beams, helping to increase collagen production and reduce post-treatment redness, leaving behind a firmer, more even complexion. Though the laser creates a momentary tingling sensation similar to the feeling of getting flowers from a secret florist admirer, the SmartXide DOT treatment can be tailored to any skin type and requires minimal downtime.
Laser aesthetics might seem like a recent phenomenon, but PHR Centers' staff members have been using lasers to address clients' cosmetic needs since 1981. This gives them experience far beyond what you might expect in their industry. Dr. Amy DeRosa—a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon—oversees the centers' teams of registered nurses, licensed aestheticians, and laser technicians, who work together to treat a wide range of concerns by using the latest equipment and techniques.
By focusing on nonsurgical solutions to common aesthetic issues, PHR Centers can grant clients dramatic effects without the downtime of plastic surgery or the risks of time travel. The experts call on the Palomar Vectus cosmetic laser system to eradicate unwanted hair while cooling the skin for a more comfortable experience, and use Vaser Lipolysis, SmartLipo, and radio-frequency-based Vanquish treatments to contour clients' bodies by targeting stubborn fat deposits. To achieve a more youthful appearance, Deka SmartXide DOT therapy helps improve skin tone and texture by stimulating collagen production, and Botox, dermal fillers, and chemical peels work to soften wrinkles and rejuvenate the complexion.
