Look Your Best At Any Age

Dr. Stefanie Christian

Timeless Laser and Skin Care is a physician-managed practice and I take great pride in offering unique, individualized care. This isn’t a spa and I am not a plastic surgeon, “middle ground” I like to call it. My clients are women and men who aren’t ready to go under the knife. They’re aware that solutions exist to keep the age monster at bay, but they want a
medical professional to perform the services.

I offer non-invasive laser and light-based therapies for improving skin texture, pigment, tone, and for treating blood vessels on the face and legs. I learned about lasers while studying Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry at Yale University. I was immediately fascinated by lasers and loved the physics involved. I used a variety of lasers during my medical career including both ablative lasers (ones that destroy tissue) as well as the non-ablative and minimally-ablative lasers which I currently use. Non-ablative lasers change tissue without destroying it and you have little or no down time.

We also offer treatments like Botox, Radiesse and Juvederm. Dermal fillers are excellent for treating deep folds and passive facial lines—lines that are visible even when the face is at rest. Examples of these lines are those from the nose to the mouth and from the corners of the mouth. Dermal fillers also replace lost volume such as in sunken cheeks and thinning lips. Botox therapy eliminates frown lines, crow’s feet, and softens harsh expressions. We have a unique gentle and artistic approach that will give you the results you are looking for.

As an OB-GYN with a deep understanding of hormones and a long-standing interest in nutrition, I believe that radiant skin reflects inner health and requires delving into lifestyle choices, your diet, and skincare products. I want patients to
understand as much as possible about what causes their skin challenges and what the alternatives are for treating those challenges. This holistic assessment will deliver an approach specific to your skin care needs.

We are a holistic practice devoted to helping men and women look their best at any age. I’m honest with my patients; I will never try to talk you into a treatment that I don’t think is appropriate. “The middle ground,” that is my specialty.

Now is the time to learn about the individualized treatments that can assist you in reaching your skin care goals. Please call us today at 440.779.1000 to schedule a consultation and join our family of friends. Looking your best is easier than you think!

Dr. Stefanie Christian is the founder of Timeless Laser and Skin Care. She transitioned to an exclusively skin care practice in 2006 after spending more than 14 years in academic, group, and then private practice as an OB/GYN. Dr. Christian first learned about lasers when she studied molecular biophysics and biochemistry at Yale. She also has a background in nutrition and has studied how lifestyle and diet affect the skin.

Healthy Non-Surgical Hair Replacement

By Lovie Lewis

What is the difference between LovXurious Hair Clinic and other salons or hair replacement centers? We offer healthy hair attachment systems, while preserving your precious strands of hair in a completely private setting. Hair colors and textures are customized to your liking. Scalp exfoliates are used to cleanse follicles and remove DHT prior to hair replacement services. Men’s hair replacement services are offered as well. Measurements and molds of the scalp are collected for complete customization. Cranial prosthetics can be made for all medically necessary clients. Most important is our private, professional, compassionate service to those suffering from any form of hair loss.

Seasoned with over 20 years’ experience in the hair care industry as a managing cosmetologist in the greater Cleveland area and a licensed instructor, I had opportunities to educate others on my creative hair extension techniques. Trends began to change requiring more tension on the hair. Significant changes in diet, stress, and health issues may all play a part in a person’s hair loss. Seeing many people with this condition, I wanted to help those who thought there was no other way than a basic commercial wig! So began my journey of learning medical hair replacement, also known as non-surgical hair replacement. I studied at New Concept, Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2003 where I mastered cranial prosthetic construction.

Soon I’ll be a certified Trichologist! What’s that you say? Well it’s the scientific study of the hair, scalp, and diseases and disorders from a para-medical stand point! This education is helping me to recognize a hair loss problem, refer to a dermatologist as needed, reduce shedding, rejuvenate scalps, reverse hair loss for some, and replace hair when needed. Now offering consultations for any hair addition services.

Before & After

Smart Lipo – A Revolutionary Way to Remove Unwanted Fat

Tiffany ( Masiello) Servey celebrated her 20th anniversary with Beachwood Hair Clinic in April 2014. She has been a pioneer in introducing aesthetics services here. She is a Certified Laser Therapist and trainer for the Low Level Light Therapy System for hair re-growth, adding a wholesale division to manufacture and market the device. When introducing skin aesthetics for skin tightening, acne treatments and non-surgical face lifting, she became a Bio-Ultimate Platinum Technologist and a member of the Medical Spa Society in 2007. Tiffany completed training for the IPL hair removal she introduced in 2008. She personally incorporated PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections for cell hair re-growth in 2009 bringing in Dr. Jack Siebenaler and the SmartPReP 2 Platelet Concentrate System. She has completed training at the Hair Academy and is a 20 year member of the American Hair Loss Council.

Now Tiffany is pleased to have incorporated Smart Lipo into her Cleveland location partnering with Dr. Ali Khan and continuing with Dr. Siebenaler to perform the best liposuction procedure available. She has had the procedure done herself and would be glad to share her success story with you.

Smart Lipo is a revolutionary new device to remove unwanted fat from small areas with minimal downtime, which differentiates from traditional liposuction. It was approved by the FDA in November 2006 and is now the fastest growing cosmetic surgical procedure in the country. Dr. Khan is the most experienced Smart Lipo physician in Northeast Ohio; he has performed over 2,500 liposuction procedures, has trained six physicians in this technique, and continues to train other doctors. Dr. Khan has been doing cosmetic medicine since 2006. He is a member of International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine and a member of The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. He is certified and trained to do Tumescent Liposuction specifically with Smart Lipo and is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Physicians.

Smart Lipo is the most widely used and extensively studied, validated laser-assisted liposuction or lipolysis system available today. It was the first laser introduced for this purpose. With eight years of studies, Smart Lipo has been shown to involve less pain, less bruising and swelling, and provide a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction. The average cost ranges from $3,000 to $6,000.

How it Works
Smart Lipo is usually done in a doctor’s office or clinic. Before the procedure, the doctor will mark the targeted areas and a local anesthetic is used to numb the area. A very small cannula, or tube, (approximately 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter) containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser’s energy to the fat cells, causing them to rupture, and then be suctioned out. The fluid released from the fat cells is also removed by the body’s natural waste system. The laser also causes small blood vessels to coagulate (gel) immediately on contact, thus resulting in less bleeding and swelling. The laser also affects the collagen in the skin, which later causes the skin to tighten and shrink gradually over the next 6-8 weeks.

This advanced technology can remove fat from the abdomen, buttocks, flanks/love handles, back, face, neck, upper arms, knees, and hips.

Smart Lipo is NOT just for women! Men get liposuction for many of the same reasons women do–boosting self-confidence, body contouring, and resolving stubborn problem areas that don’t respond to exercise. Some men also seek liposuction to help reveal muscle definition beneath the fat, as it can be difficult to show off hard work done at the gym when problem areas refuse to go away. Men and women tend to have different problem areas and for men, the neck and chest are popular areas for treatment, along with the more typical love handles and belly area. Many men also seek liposuction for enlarged male breasts.

Renew Your Legs and Your Life

DO YOU EXPERIENCE LEG DISCOMFORT? Renew Your Legs and Your Life

By Dr. Robert A. Musson
After working in the fi eld of phlebology, or vein medicine, for the past 20 years, I have seen thousands of patients come through our doors and it still amazes me how often I hear that statement from our patients after treatments.

When patients visit us for the fi rst time, we ask about their reasons for selecting our center. The majority of them pursue treatment because of the way their legs look without understanding how much of their leg discomfort is also attributed to their vein disease. I say “discomfort” and not “pain” because most patients who have venous insufficiency (the underlying medical issue that leads to varicose veins and spider veins) will describe the classic vein symptoms of aching, throbbing, heaviness, and
tiredness in their legs.

We have found in recent years that many patients also complain of swelling, itching, burning, leg cramps, and restlessness of the legs in association with their venous insuffi ciency. Surprisingly, many patients who come to us with those symptoms have already undergone extensive evaluations, sometimes involving specialists, without finding relief of their discomfort.

Leg cramps and restlessness in particular are symptoms that haven’t been associated with varicose veins. However, we have found these to be two of the most common and most annoying symptoms, as they will often occur at night and can be extremely disruptive to sleep. Other conditions can cause muscle cramps and restlessness, but when these symptoms occur at night, venous insufficiency may be the most likely diagnosis.

This can be good news for patients with these symptoms because the treatment of venous insuffi ciency is easier and more effective today with the combination of endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy that we employ at the Circulatory Centers. Both of these procedures are performed in the office with no general anesthesia or down time required. We are one of the most experienced vein centers in the nation and we have found that the vast majority of patients who come to our offices with these symptoms are able to find the relief they have been seeking for years.

In addition to leg discomfort, a significant number of patients come to us for purely cosmetic reasons—they are unhappy about the appearance of the spider veins or varicose veins in their legs.

After undergoing treatment in our centers, most patients are happy with their cosmetic results but discover that their legs feel better as well. Because vein-related symptoms tend to appear gradually over a span of years, often made worse by pregnancies or jobs which require long periods of standing, many patients don’t realize that they have symptoms and assume their legs are “supposed” to feel this way.

Other patients assume that just “because” they are older, leg discomfort is normal. Not so! Many of these patients have underlying vein issues, even if their legs look normal on the surface. A thorough evaluation with ultrasound in our centers is crucial to establishing a diagnosis and beginning treatment that will fi nally bring relief!

At the Circulatory Centers, our free office consultations are the first step in allowing us to help you get the relief you’ve been craving for and to help you love your legs again! Call 800.342.8918 to schedule a FREE consultation at one of our seven locations today!

Dr. Robert A. Musson is a native of Akron, Ohio. After receiving a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from the University of Akron in 1985, he attended The Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus, Ohio, where he received his M.D. in 1989. He joined Circulatory Centers in 1992, and it was here that he received additional training in the field of Phlebology, or vein care medicine. Dr. Musson is an Active Physician Member of The American College of Phlebology, the principal American professional society in Phlebology. Dr. Musson is also an accomplished author, and he has written an informative book on the subject of varicose veins titled Varicose Veins and Spider Veins: Myths and Realities.

Health Conscious Salon… Products Free of Dangerous Toxins!

By Linda Machalicek, Dolce Organic Salon

As the owner of Dolcé Organic Salon, my goal is for all clients that visit the salon to feel empowered and improve their quality of life from the inside out. I opened the doors of Dolcé Organic Salon in 2008 following a life threatening battle with pancreatic cancer. I developed a genuine interest in new ancient organic and holistic approaches to beauty and health during my illness. I do believe that using traditional color and perm for the previous 30+ years had an effect on my health.

I have been certified in organic hair color and have advanced training at Vidal Sassoon in Toronto. My passion is to help clients look and feel their best using organic and holistic products while operating a chemical free zone, dynamic salon with upbeat health conscious professional stylists and nail technicians.

Our health conscious salon is concerned with your holistic experience from your head with
organic hair products, to your toes with our new state of the art pedicure chairs. These quiet relaxing chairs and equipment create the jet feel with no water fl owing in pipes; this way, bacteria cannot accumulate. Traditional pipe-in pedicure chairs can lead to unsanitary conditions in your pedicure experience, which can cause infections. Pedicure infections have been a spreading disease due to unsanitary pedicure bowls. This new state of the art chair is a trend that is good for the health and safety of our spa clients. So preparing those feet for warmer weather sandals should not only be a relaxing fun experience, it should be safe.

Another state of the art product we have introduced is the DS Labs System. It is the most
efficient hair-growth stimulating technology available. DS Labs is the most effective system
to preserve hair, avoid shedding, and maintain scalp vitality because it deploys numerous anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antioxidant, and antihormonal agents. These powerful ingredients work together to oppose follicular dysfunction like no other formula can. Revita also contains key compounds to hydrate, feed, and stimulate hair follicles. Most importantly, is the way these compounds enter the follicle. They travel further down into the hair follicle then time released for 12 to 14 hours, where it’s competitor’s lay on top of the scalp and are only active for 15 minutes.

The signature hair color product we use is OCS (Organic Color System) that also carries the “Certified Organic” seal. It is the world’s only professional, non-diverted, natural and permanent organic hair color that is enriched with nourishing certified organic, gentle natural conditioning agents, antaging antioxidants, rejuvenating amino acids, nourishing vitamins, and soothing natural plant extracts. Organic hair color is 100% free of ammonia, formaldehyde, resorcinol, parabens, thioglycolates, and other dangerous toxins commonly found in permanent hair color.

We have seen over the last five years at Dolcé that many of our clients come from all over due to experiencing health problems and not wanting to introduce any more hair chemicals into their bodies, especially pregnant women. We offer a more natural and organic approach at Dolcé. The best thing about our hair color is what we leave out! Now you no longer need to use products that contain these harmful ingredients that damage
the integrity of the hair…or your feet!

I personally invite you to stop in to our salon
to feel, smell, and see the difference.

Presented By Linda Machalicek,
Owner of Dolce Organic Salon

Strong fumes from hair and nail products are the staple scent of most salons. But if you are looking for a more natural approach, look no further. Dolce Organic Salon offers toxic-free, natural hair coloring, manicures and pedicures for women and men as “the

I wanted to open a salon that embraced a philosophy of natural approach to beauty. The best thing about our hair color is what we leave out! Now you no longer need to use hair color products that contain ammonia. Organic Color Systems uses a natural, nonammonia
based method to open the hair cuticle for color penetration. It doesn’t give off offensive fumes or damage your hair, as it retains its natural moisture and essential protein balance. This creates beautiful, more natural looking colors that last longer.

The color has no harsh chemical odor, no corrosive damage to hair, less toxin exposure, no scalp or skin staining, true-to-color charts and superior gray coverage. Our perm products contain NO thioglycolates, NO sulfates, NO animal by-products and NO plastics. You will experience no caustic fumes, no burn or itch, no brassing and no damage to your hair with these products. We also carry Simply Organic, a hair care product that contains no parabens, no sodium lauryl sulfate and does no product testing on animals.

The nail products we use are the fi rst vegan family of DBPformaldehyde and toluene-free nail lacquers. You will experience tranquility when you enter this beautiful, luxurious, odor-free environment.

Just a few benefits from using natural ingredients and removing harsh chemicals.
• No harmful fumes
• No scalp discomfort or staining
• Longer lasting color
• Color that fades on tone
• Superior grey coverage
• Healthier hair

FEELING FLAT?

We Can Boost Your Confidence (and Your Cup Size!)

By Cindy Marx; Practice Manager
Raj Plastic Surgery

The female breast is one of the defining characteristics of beauty, femininity and sexuality of a woman’s body. Breast augmentation surgery remains one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed worldwide. With the FDA approval of the newer silicone gel-filled implants in 2006, women now are able to choose between the saline or silicone gel implants. The silicone gel implants feel more like natural breast tissue without compromising reliability or safety. Which implant to choose is a personal decision made between the patient and her Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Breast augmentation surgery has a great impact not only on your body but also on your psychological well-being. Our society today associates femininity of the female form with curves in the right place. Curvaceous breasts enhance the way our clothes fit from sundresses to bathing suits. When a woman feels feminine in her “birthday suit,” she exudes confidence regardless of what clothes she wears. So throw out the push-ups, shapers, and inserts; invest in yourself!

It is not only the 20 something’s that seek breast augmentation procedures; women in their 30’s and 40’s seek breast augmentation to regain the appearance of their pre-pregnancy feminine breasts. The baby boomers continue to influence how we age – women in their 50’s, 60’s and 70’s are finally having breast augmentation in conjunction with breast lifts to help regain a more feminine figure. Their children are grown, they continue to be in the work force, and they have more disposable income allowing for an investment in themselves.

A spring surgery can bring you confidence in swim suits and sundresses this summer! Breast Augmentation procedures are very affordable and recovery is fairly quick. Please call our office for a free consultation. Ask us about our no-interest payment options.

I developed a genuine interest in new ancient organic and holistic approaches to beauty and health during my illness. I do believe that using traditional color and perm for the previous 30+ years had anƒ effect on my health.

Taking care of yourself on the outside is important, but have you found that strong fumes from hair and nail products are the staple scent of most salons?

A more natural and organic approach is offered here at Dolcé Organic Salon, the only one of its kind in Northeast Ohio. The best thing about our hair color is what we leave out! Now you no longer need to use hair color products that contain ammonia and other multiple harmful ingredients that damage the integrity of the hair.

We know how to make clients feel beautiful inside and out “without harsh chemicals,” resulting in shiny healthy hair. We provide our clients a chemical free zone-salon and for that we are thankful.

Organic Ceratin System is a permanent straightening system free from formaldehyde, thioglycolates, ammonia, and sodium hydroxide. The system straightens hair by realigning the bonds that gives hair its shape so frizzy, curly or unmanageable locks can be tamed while being kept in optimal condition. It has all the bene™ ts and advantages of a traditional “relaxer “and “Keratin treatment” combined!

Both of these very popular services are offered at a affordable pricing at our salon.

Midlife Makeover Reflect your inner vibrancy and natural beauty.

You should look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside. ƒ That’s what Western
Reserve Plastic Surgery client Linda Goldstein strongly believes. ƒ The 62-year-old
exercises, eats a healthy diet and works on her spirituality. “Why should you do all that and look in the mirror and see an old woman,” asked Goldstein. “With all the technological advances and surgical procedures available, why shouldn’t you look good too?”

During a span of 16 years, Goldstein has undergone several procedures to enhance her natural beauty, including a tummy tuck, breast lift, neck lift, Botox and Juvederm. All of the procedures were performed by renowned surgeon Dr. George Picha of Western Reserve
Plastic Surgery. Goldstein says she has recommended him to many of her friends and colleagues.

“He’s not just an amazingly accomplished surgeon, he’s also an artist,” said Goldstein. “He knows the human body so well and has the finesse to create the most aesthetically pleasing result.”

Goldstein Š first met Dr. Picha in the mid 1990’s after her freelance work as an on-camera spokesperson began to slow down. When she asked for feedback, Linda was told she looked old and tired. ƒ That’s when she made an appointment with Dr. Picha.

I immediately liked him. He was so calm and positive,” recalled Goldstein. “He is very honest and won’t sell you something you don’t need.” After a discussion with Linda, Dr. Picha suggested a modiŠfied facelift to rejuvenate the lower half of Linda’s face. Linda says that was just the beginning. It also rejuvenated her career, self-esteem and determination to always look her best.

International Expert for Breast Augmentation


Dr. Picha has unique credentials which make him a highly-specialized surgeon, particularly for breast augmentation. Not only is Dr. George Picha a board-certiŠfied plastic surgeon with more than 20 years of experience, but he is also a scientist with a Ph.D. in biomedical/ biomaterials engineering. Using this degree, he has worked with Dow
Corning to invent technology to enhance the performance of breast implants.

As a patient, this means you can have the engineer who helped design an implant also perform your breast augmentation surgery!

Dr. Picha knows which breast implants will give you the look you want. ƒ The trend for many patients now is to choose silicone gel implants because of the natural feel and reduced risk of wrinkling beneath thin skin.

Gel implants today come in three pro­blems: low, medium, and high, as well as a wide range of volumes. ƒ The latest procedures use a “no touch technique.” ƒ The implant is placed into a funnel and then inserted through the incision, minimizing the potential for skin contact and infection. It delivers the implant with less trauma and reduces the risk
for surface contamination. Breast augmentation can also be combined with a breast lift if necessary.

To complete your look, you can eliminate areas of unwanted fat in just a matter of minutes with laser liposuction using Slim Lipo. ƒ This procedure is performed in the doctor’s o® ce under local anesthesia. With Slim Lipo there is less trauma to the tissue so the healing time is faster with less swelling and bruising. Slim Lipo also tightens the skin from the inside leaving the area looking smoother.

Whatever your goals may be, Dr. Picha will work with you to provide the best possible outcome. Just like Linda Goldstein, your reflection in the mirror can once again reflect your inner vibrancy and natural beauty.

Call Western Reserve Plastic Surgery today to schedule your consultation, 440-842-FACE.

Dr. George Picha
In his 20 years as a board-certi„fied plastic surgeon, Dr. George Picha has performed thousands of breast augmentations, laser body sculpting procedures and facial rejuvenation procedures. He’s a world-renowned expert in breast augmentation and the design of breast implant surface technology.
