The Skin Center Medical Spa Celebrates 30 Years

Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, Skin Rejuvenation, and Natural Results Key to Skin Center Success.

(PITTSBURGH – September 21, 2011) – The Skin Center Medical Spa, with locations in Pittsburgh, PA, and Columbus, OH, this year celebrates 30 years of offering women and men advanced cosmetic plastic surgery in Pittsburgh and minimally invasive medical spa treatments for healthier-looking skin, and rejuvenation of the face and body.

Performing more than 100,000 medical spa treatments for clients, The Skin Center is one of the top medical spas in the country and is the largest of its kind in the region. Established by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dominic Brandy, MD, in 1981, The Skin Center is one of the few medical facilities in Western Pennsylvania specializing exclusively in cosmetic plastic surgery and anti-aging laser skin treatments. Dr. Brandy and his colleague Fernando Colon, MD, board-certified plastic surgeon and medical director of The Skin Center in Columbus Ohio, have a combined 50 years of experience in cosmetic plastic surgery. Together they have performed nearly 20,000 cosmetic surgery procedures.

Today, The Skin Center provides a range of cosmetic services, including facial plastic surgery, cosmetic plastic surgery, laser vein surgery, body contouring laser treatments and anti aging skin treatments.

The Skin Center’s core philosophy is to offer less invasive medical spa treatments and cosmetic surgery procedures that improve patients’ self confidence and enjoyment of life while providing tools and guidance to improving their overall health.  A team of board-certified cosmetic surgeons, board-certified plastic surgeons, vascular surgeons and nurses work closely with each patient to ensure that the right medical spa treatment or cosmetic surgery procedure is selected, and that the patient has established realistic goals.

Additionally, as medical director, Dr. Brandy ensures that clients opting for cosmetic surgery procedures understand and are educated about the role that nutrition, exercise and lifestyle play in achieving and maintaining optimal surgical outcomes. All prospective cosmetic surgery patients undergo a medical clearance process before a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure is scheduled. This holistic approach, together with the experience, medical precision and artistry of Dr. Brandy and his staff, ensures that clients achieve lasting, natural-looking results with the least amount of downtime possible.

“At The Skin Center, we are passionate about offering our clients the most proven and effective treatments that fit their individual lifestyles,” says Dr. Brandy.  “We spend an extensive amount of time getting to know each individual so that together we can achieve a result that boosts their self confidence, and helps them look as vibrant and rested as they feel on the inside. I never get tired of seeing how delighted my patients are with their results.  I know that they leave our office ready to enjoy life more fully.  This is what inspired me 30 years ago, and it continues to do so today.”

Innovation has also been central to The Skin Center’s success.  In its early years, the practice focused on the most advanced cosmetic surgery treatments for men, and Dr. Brandy gained his position as a leading cosmetic surgeon by developing and refining the most effective techniques for treating hair loss with natural growing hair. The practice grew steadily as Dr. Brandy broadened the scope of treatments to include minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedures and  med spa  treatments for men and women. Today The Skin Center specializes in the Quicklift® mini face lift procedures, breast enhancement, liposuction and tummy tucks, as well as advanced medical anti-aging skin treatments for firmer, more youthful looking skin.

Dr. Brandy is also the developer of the revolutionary QuickLift® mini facelift, a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that tightens sagging skin along the jaw line and chin, resulting in immediate, marked results without the lengthy recovery and cost associated with traditional facelift surgeries.  More than 2,000 QuickLift procedures have been performed at The Skin Center alone, and physicians from across the United States travel to Pittsburgh to train with Dr. Brandy to learn the QuickLift procedure.

Considered a leading authority in the field of cosmetic surgery, Dr. Brandy has published more than 70 medical articles in prominent medical journals and has contributed to nine aesthetic surgery textbooks. He has also shared his expertise as a cosmetic surgeon with his peers by lecturing at over 115 national and international meetings. For the past five years he has lectured and served as faculty at the St. Louis University, Practical Anatomy and Surgical Education Course, Advanced Techniques in Facial Rejuvenation.

At the same time that it marks its 30 years of service to its clients, The Skin Center Medical Spa is renovating and expanding its Mt. Lebanon location to 15,000 square feet. This includes a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgical facility nationally accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, AAAHC as well as expanded capabilities for medical spa treatments, and varicose vein and spider vein treatments.
