At Any Lab Test Now, a medical-testing facility replete with a CLIA-certified laboratory, patients typically wait for no more than 15 minutes to see a staffer and receive a blood, DNA, STD, or drug test. The tests don't require prescriptions or doctors' approvals, and patients usually receive the confidential results within 48 hours. They can decide how they’d like to receive the results—whether by pickup, email, snail mail, or fax from the future.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Dr. Marc Ott has learned much about the human body in his years of treating sore muscles and spinal conditions, but one lesson stands out. “It's rare that what has made one patient better will be the same for the next,” he claims, and in keeping with this belief he and his staff strive to integrate traditional and alternative practices within their customized health-care plans.
More often than not, these plans involve some combination of chiropractic care and massage therapy. The former can relieve chronic pains with spinal adjustments, nutritional counseling, and holistic lifestyle advice, while the latter targets adhesions with Swedish, deep-tissue, and lymphatic-drainage techniques. These treatments—along with specialized procedures such as joint injections—can provide long-lasting relief from injuries sustained while playing sports or leveling parking meters with your monster truck.
The aestheticians at Advanced Aesthetics and Wellness wield an arsenal of medical lasers and facial treatments that take aim at the signs of aging during 30- to 60-minute sessions. Matrix IR wrinkle reduction stimulates the complexion's collagen production with heat, energy, and a rousing conference room pep talk, leaving skin cells plumped and dewy looking. Fine lines, sun spots, and textural irregularities jump ship after surrendering to Sublative Rejuvenation's fractional resurfacing methods, and ReFirme skin tightening employs radio frequencies and elos laser energy to lift and tone tired face flesh.
Doctors of Chiropractic Eric Janowitz and Chad Rose and their team bolster clients? health with massages, chiropractic adjustments, and diagnoses of imbalances in spinal alignment. Both Dr. Janowitz and Dr. Rose employ high-tech and traditional hands-on tactics in their practice, from nonsurgical spinal-decompression therapy to cold-laser therapy, which uses a heat-free light beam. The center?s DTS Triton system generates computerized traction, which can help clients with chronic pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia, and other ailments. To give back to the community, the chiropractors organize stress-relief breaks in schools and adjust the posture of storefront mannequins.
At Elite Vein Care Center, board-certified specialist Dr. Gregory Samano II and his staff place all their concentration on the treatment of varicose and spider veins. Specializing in these fields, they offer four effective treatment options, including the Venefit targeted endovenous therapy that delivers consistent heat via catheter to reduce discomfort and bruising while collapsing and closing enlarged leg veins. They can also remove affected veins through small incisions or cause them to fade with Asclera injections, turning veins into scar tissue that gradually fades away, unlike many bands that were popular in the 1960s. The team can also perform laser vein therapy, a noninvasive procedure in which the doctor uses powerful pulses of light to dissipate spider or varicose veins.
