From mending battle wounds to performing breast enhancement, Dr. Taek Kim has had a long and storied career. After graduating from medical school in Seoul, South Korea, the young Dr. Kim became a captain in the South Korean armed forces and flew the skies as a flight surgeon for Korean and American troops. He relocated to the United States, where he performed more than 8,000 surgeries and began specializing in cosmetic procedures. Today, as the founder and medical director of Renaissance Cosmetic Laser, Dr. Kim uses his years of experience to help both men and women enhance their appearance with services ranging from water-assisted liposuction to wrinkle-smoothing injections. Light technology also takes a polishing role in his service repertoire via laser spider-vein therapy, IPL photofacials, and procedures to install theater spotlights on a client's favorite features. When Dr. Kim isn't highlighting natural beauty, he channels his impressive resumé and renowned skills as a surgeon into mentoring young physicians as a faculty member of Hinsdale Hospital's residency program.
The versatile staff members at Organix Med Spa perform a comprehensive list of health and wellness services and pride themselves on treating each patient with personalized care. Massage therapy and acupuncture sessions nurture bodies as a whole rather than catering separately to the wishes of disparate arms or heads. Organix Med Spa's nonsurgical chiropractic methods, which are customized to suit each spine's needs, assuage achy backs irritated by the feeble prodding of traditional medicine. In addition, the expansive therapy center boasts an organic med spa with an array of soothing treatments, such as facials and waxing.
Together with a team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and medical staff, the board-certified physicians at Complete Clinics design weight-loss programs based on patients' body chemistry and specific goals. They use health markers such as resting metabolic rate, insulin resistance, and cholesterol and blood-glucose levels to customize their programs. A personalized, calorically nonrestrictive diet helps patrons achieve sustainable results without counting calories, purchasing costly specialized foods, or measuring out portions with a microscope. The clinical crew can bolster weight-loss efforts with doctor-supervised HCG injections, B12 injections, and prescription medications. This hands-on clinical approach has garnered attention from numerous local media outlets, including NBC and CBS News.
To further individualize treatment, the doctor and medical staff offer specialty programs for brides-to-be, new moms, and people with diabetes or polycystic ovarian syndrome. They help clients meet health and wellness goals with innovative equipment such as Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning technology, a pressure-changing device designed to simulate interval resistance training.
AmazeHealth Weight Loss & Wellness's mission is two-fold: to fight physical pain and to customize wellness programs so they treat both physical and emotional health. To do so, its practitioners offer nonsurgical pain-management services such as acupuncture and pain psychology. They also perform nerve and muscle tests and rehabilitate injuries with onsite physical therapy.
Their wellness programs encompass everything from nutritional counseling to health-psychology counseling. One main priority is helping clients tackle obesity with physician-supervised weight-loss programs, which help clients lose weight in a safe, healthy way through custom diet plans and metabolic testing. The center emphasizes the importance of exercise and stress management—which leads some individuals to unhealthy eating habits—by including a yoga teacher on its team.
