Few people own a trademark. Dr. Jerry Darm of Aesthetic Medicine owns three. He pioneered the trademark procedures of LaserLift and LipoLift, which use noninvasive and minimally invasive techniques, respectively, to smooth fine lines and banish excess fat. To add to his repertoire, Dr. Darm added a third trademarked treatment: MiniLift. His accomplishments have led to invitations from aesthetic medical professionals around the world—including a 14-day trip to China to speak about his treatments at conferences in several cities.
The LaserLift procedure reverses damage caused by exposure to the sun, free radicals, and gravity malfunctions by regenerating collagen and tightening the skin with laser wavelengths. LipoLift destroys fat with a laser that melts fat cells through a small incision and allows them to be removed more gently than with traditional liposuction. The MiniLift is performed only by a board-certified plastic surgeon and is available only at Aesthetic Medicine. At the Lake Oswego location, which boasts more than 14,000 square feet, Dr. Darm helps patients feel beautiful in other ways, including combating spider veins with laser therapy or sclerotherapy and keeping wrinkles at bay with injectable fillers. The center's weight-loss program helps patients shed pounds under the guidance of medical specialists and dieticians.
Under the guidance of Dr. Michele Adamcak, the staff at Medi Spa at SW Family Physicians performs cosmetic skin treatments and spa services to help each client maintain a natural-looking youthful appearance. Dr, Adamcak—certified in Botox injections and dermal fillers—can fill in facial wrinkles,
folds, or empty Twinkies. The spa’s specialty-trained aestheticians also use advanced laser equipment to battle signs of aging, such as in non-surgical skin tightening and laser hair removal treatments. It’s a testament to the spa’s ability to use technology to help people get better skin, as are their personalized skin treatment plans, which use a photo-analysis system.
The doctors and physician’s assistants who perform each service at Nu U Laser Centers need only choose the right laser in order to impart patients with quick, safe body and facial changes. While the Smartlipo TriPlex can less invasively slim and contours the body, the Smart Skin Co2 treatment plumps wrinkles, shrinks pores, and softens the appearance of scars. Their other treatments combat unwanted body hair, cellulite, and leg and facial veins.
Board-certified Nurse Practitioner R J Edwards not only has nearly a decade in aesthetic medicine, but also training from some of Oregon's top plastic surgeons. She draws on this experience at her med spa, R J Edwards Aesthetic Clinic, where she addresses a host of aesthetic concerns with cosmetic treatments. Read on to learn more about a few:
Acne and acne scars: She targets and shrinks oil glands with a laser-light procedure or relies on less invasive chemical peels to resurface skin. Both treatments can minimize breakouts and reduce the appearance of scars.
Uneven skin tone and texture: Nurse Practitioner R J Edwards also employs medical-grade chemical peels and Vi Peels to improve overall skin tone. CoolTouch laser and microneedling treatments can be helpful, too.
Dark undereye circles: Nurse Practitioner R J Edwards improves the appearance of dark circles with such fillers as Juvéderm Voluma XC, Restylane Lyft, and Radiesse.
Crow's-feet: To smooth these smile lines around the eyes, she may inject Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin, which can reduce forehead and frown lines, as well.
Toenail fungus: Her laser can penetrate infected toenails and destroy nail fungus with minimal pain and no downtime, helping clients get back to wearing sandals or slippers with the toes cut out as soon as possible.
