Dr. Alan J. Parks and Dr. Benjamin Bogucki are board-certified dermatologists at the helm of Eastside Dermatology, a practice established in Columbus more than 25 years ago. They and their staff of medical aestheticians—under the supervision of the doctors—treat diseases and cosmetic concerns for patients of all skin types.
At their state-of-the-art facility, they perform services from ultrasonic facials to laser treatment for psoriasis, rosacea as well as tattoo removal and cosmetic eradication of blood vessels to liposuction. In fact, Dr. Parks specializes in tumescent liposuction, a less invasive way to reduce unwanted fat than traditional liposuction. Dr. Bogucki, meanwhile, is fellowship-trained in Mohs surgery.
Spa owners Lisa Jordan and Jami Morone have transported their own slice of the tropics to Ohio. The Cove Wellness Spa was inspired by their vacation to Hawaii, which they took after graduating from aesthetics school together. While there, they sought a secluded beach spot that would shield them from the islands' bustling tourists and heat-seeking coconuts. The cove that they found fulfilled their desire for total serenity and also sparked the idea for the spa they would manage on their return to the mainland.
Today, Lisa and Jami try to recapture the feeling of ultimate leisure that overtook them in their Hawaiian haven. They typically greet guests at the spa's doors, ushering them into a familial fold of clients. Their treatments range from body wraps to tanning, with waxing for men and women and facials that draw from nature with ingredients such as pumpkin, berries, and chocolate.
Artemis instills youthfulness with an unlikely blend of artistry and science. Under the same roof, a team of board-certified physicians works alongside aestheticians trained in Chicago, Miami, and LA to rejuvenate patients from the inside and out. Milking convenient medical connections, the spa staff makes use of prescription-strength elixirs to smooth and clarify skin. The doctors flaunt their technical skill with vein-removing lasers, non- and minimally-invasive liposuction alternatives, Botox injections, and championship tournaments of Operation.
The staff at The Slim Co use a non-invasive Body Light system for patients' body-contouring needs. Their patented system helps clients shed fat without the need for costly or invasive surgery, with each treatment lasting just 10-15 minutes. Using gentle LED technology, the treatment helps dispel stubborn inches from common target areas, such as the midsection and thighs. During each treatment, treatment pads heat up the cells within adipose tissue, emulsifying the fat within and preparing it for expulsion through the body's natural processes. At least six sessions are generally required for maximum results, but recommendations vary based on body type, weight, and target loss.
The clinicians at Medsave Clinic take a holistic approach to their treatments, helping to alleviate symptoms that at first glance may seem unrelated. Even when they're looking to treat a minor injury or a seemingly isolated symptom, they consider the entire body when designing treatment plans. And they seek to not only relieve patients of their current ailments, but to help them experience overall wellness. To that end, they offer non-surgical emergency care, addiction treatment, weight-loss services, and urgent care, which they perform in a more welcoming, comfortable environment than that of traditional clinics or mad-man laboratories.
In addition to working toward making bodies feel better, they also offer laser lipo treatments, which noninvasively contour the body for a slimmer silhouette.
