Located in Shelbyville Road Plaza, 2600 Shelbyville Road, Physician’s Center was founded in 2005 as a physician-directed medical spa that offers a range of aesthetic services including Botox, dermal fillers, laser treatments and other non-invasive cosmetic treatments.
“The business consists of three basic parts,” said Dr. Sean Maguire, the center’s staff physician. “One aspect is prescription skin care or physician-directed skin care. The second facet of our business is aesthetic services, facials and chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and the third component of our business is plastic surgery – both non-invasive cosmetic procedures and laser treatments, as well as full-scale plastic surgery.”
Maguire specializes in non-invasive cosmetic treatments and is skilled in the art of the liquid face lift as well as facial sculpting, a non-surgical facial rejuvenation and enhancement technique. He also performs cosmetic surgeries at the center, including rhinoplasty, breast implants and liposuction.
A staff of five full-time aestheticians is also on hand at the center to help accommodate both walk-ins and scheduled appointments. Staff members work hard to keep wait times before treatments to a minimum, and they are able to get patients in and out of the center quickly even during the busiest times of the year.
“This is a seasonal business,” Maguire said. “In the spring and the fall, and leading up to Derby, people come in and want to have things done and get in quickly.”
Patients also want to find ways to de-stress from their busy schedules, and Physician’s Center offers massages and soothing facials. The signature facial includes a deep-cleansing exfoliation, steaming and hydration, as well as a seaweed mud masque application, and an arm, hand and back massage.
The signature facial is just one of a variety of treatments the center provides. It also offers complimentary consultations to evaluate individual complexions before recommending a treatment plan. The goal of the center is to educate guests on skin care treatments while helping them to feel the best they can feel in their own skin.
Physician’s Center also sells a line of top-quality skin care products, including Obagi, SkinMedica, Avene and Glytone, and just recently, added another treatment to its list of services called exilis – a non-surgical body contouring device for fat reduction and skin tightening.
As for the future of Physician’s Center for Beauty, Maguire said he hopes to expand the business in the coming years.
“We’d like to see some expansion of an additional, adjacent space,” Maguire said. “That’s potentially down the road. When we’re busy, we’re really packed. So we’d like to see some continued growth.”
Physician’s Center for Beauty is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
