Dr. Benjamin Killey has notoriously steady hands. They helped him win the 1997 MTNA collegiate state championship in piano for Illinois, and later, to treat ER patients with enough finesse to earn him a feature on TLC's Untold Stories of the ER. The emergency-medicine doctor has since refocused them on cosmetic treatments, undergoing the training and certification that enabled him to supervise Blue Haven Medical Spa.
Today, his hands wield Nd:YAG lasers and medical-grade skincare products that remedy various dermal conditions, including wrinkles and unwanted hair. All of Dr. Killey's laser services, from facials to spider-vein removal, charge by time spent, rather than by area covered, and adjust to fit the client's desired results. He puts patients at ease by ensuring that only physicians, and never interns, administer procedures and by using tools such as chilled-air machines that cool laser-affected pores.
Under the expert guidance of advanced registered nurse practitioner Sima Rafii, the staff at Sima Medical & Cosmetic Clinic restores patients' health and confidence with a full menu of wellness services. Their medical treatments cover dermatologic conditions such as acne, rashes, and sun damage, as well as annual dermatology skin exams covered by most insurances. Armed with lasers, they turn their hands to cosmetic services such as hair removal, fotofacials, and Liposonix body-contouring treatments. The skincare experts with seven years of experience and thousands of injections under their belts, also smooth epidermises with microdermabrasion, Botox, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Xeomin injections, and coach clients on how to care for their skin and train it to win all-state skin care trophies.
Acu-Clinics of Washington draws its name from its signature treatment, invented by Dr. Francis J McCall. The acrylic devices fit inside the ear, administering constant, low-grade acupressure that reportedly helps with weight loss, efforts to quit smoking, and reducing the noise of your roommate's glockenspiel practice.
At this particular clinic, medical aesthetician and acupressure therapist Janean Wjvold fits the acu-molds in addition to performing beauty treatments.
These range from exfoliating microdermabrasion and facial peels to a hydrating peppermint, tangerine oil, and white tea mask. However, there's one thing that they all have in common: they're administered by the soothing light of scented candles.
Medical Director Dr. Marilyn Tompkins, ARNP, busies Radiant MedSpa's staff with an array of services that refine skin surfaces. Injectables such as Botox and Sculptra free faces of wrinkles or circles around the eyes that reveal age. IPL photofacials and fractional skin-resurfacing treatments leave skin as brilliant as an Einstein wrapped in reflective tape; the spa's laser systems can also halt hair production in follicles or zap away spider veins. Glycolic or lactic acids reveal youthful skin and fight blemishes during chemical peels, and HCG weight-loss programs bolster weight loss with a combination of booster shots, protein shakes, and vitamins.
Renew Beauty Med Spa's licensed and skilled beauty experts exfoliate skin, smooth out wrinkles, plump up lips, and revamp 'dos. Laser treatments keep exteriors hair- and vein-free, and anti-aging solutions such as Botox, body-contouring treatments, and teeth whitening turn back time the way Cher never could. Meanwhile, stylists in the full service hair salon begin each lock transformation with a personalized consultation before they sculpt a new shape, add a new hue, or smooth frizzy strands with strengthening proteins. For at-home care, Renew Beauty Med Spa also stocks high-end products from brands such as Bumble and bumble, Kérastase, and Obagi.
For Via Rejuvenation's providers, it's important that cosmetic procedures require little downtime. As such, they rely on a range of non-invasive surgical procedures to reduce signs of aging and bring a healthy, youthful glow back into their clients' faces. Micro-needling procedures cultivate new collagen cells and other tissues, which can erase fine lines and help clients understand how starfish feel when they grow limbs back. The providers also perform platelet-rich plasma therapy, which uses the clients' own plasma--once it's spun and concentrated in a centrifuge--injected into specific areas to promote new skin and blood vessel growth.
