Skincare Tricks and Treats

The fall season is the perfect time to start taking care of your skin before the cold winter hits. This month we ran several specials for skincare treatments and below we have listed the Top 5 Skincare Treatments that we offer!

1.    BOTOX:
Botox® Cosmetic temporarily treats moderate to severe wrinkles. Commonly treated areas are crow’s feet, frown lines, and horizontal forehead lines. Facial fillers are injections which add lost volume to soften facial wrinkles and folds. Commonly treated areas are smile lines, lips, marionette lines, and cheeks.

2.    Latisse
Latisse is a prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (inadequate or not enough lashes) to grow eyelashes longer, fuller, darker.

 3. Microdermabrasion:
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment that rejuvenates the skin and accelerates the cell renewal process. It helps improve skin texture, lighten pigmentation, reduce sun damage and pore size, smooth fine lines, and control acne.
4. Chemical Peel:
Chemical peels offer a nonsurgical way to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and under the eyes. In addition, chemical peels can be used to remove spotting caused by genetics, sun damage, and aging, and are effective in treating certain types of acne.
5. IPL Treatment:
Intense pulsed light, commonly abbreviated as IPL, is a technology used by cosmetic and medical practitioners to perform various skin treatments for aesthetic and therapeutic uses.

HOUR Detroit Top Doc Ellen Ozolins Customer Review

"Total Celeb-level Care"

The name says it all. From the moment I walked in the door for a consultation, I was given incredible care and service. The staff is polite and courteous and they remember your name as though you've been going there for years. I had a "Mommy Makeover" (breast lift-no implants & full tummy tuck) by Dr. Ozolins in July 2015. She's absolutely fantastic! I am not a fan of any type of surgical procedures in general and was very timid about even seeking a consultation but she made me feel comfortable and confident right away. I'm 12 weeks post-op and super happy with my results. I know I could've gone somewhere closer to my home for a cut-rate deal but I don't for one second regret my choice to have my surgery through Star. I think you get what you pay for and my procedure was worth every penny. Dr. Ozolins does impeccable work. Many surgeons don't want to do a breast lift without implants but Dr. O is such a pro, she uses a technique that provides the lift that holds up without implants. The care at Star is top notch- they don't simply cut and run like some "cosmetic" surgery clinics. If you call they are happy to be see you, even if it's just for small concerns that end up being nothing. I might be a bit of a drama queen and I called them multiple times with questions and the staff was always happy to listen and give advice or have me come in. They see you regularly after your surgery for months and provide care until you are fully healed. I really cannot say enough about the skill, care and professionalism of the surgeons, nurses and all the staff. I would recommend Star, and particularly Dr. Ozolins to ANYONE & everyone considering plastic surgery or non-surgical procedures. I feel I got my money's worth and more.
