Before joining forces to fight spider and varicose veins, the board-certified radiologists at North Bridge Vein Care all honed their skills at Harvard teaching hospitals. This training, along with other professional endeavors, familiarized them with medical intricacies such as interpreting ultrasound images, determining if blood is flowing through the body in a healthy manner, and assessing whether vessels are robust. Now, they use this know-how to treat compromised veins—which are often unsightly and painful—with methods such as sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatments, and ambulatory phlebectomy.
The certified laser technicians, registered nurses, and medical aestheticians who staff Advanced Laser & Skin Center stay up-to-date on modern trends to provide the most advanced aesthetic services. Under the supervision of a medical doctor, they perform technology-based treatments such as Venus Freeze and Thermage, which noninvasively tightens and smoothes the skin, or DermaSound facials that remove dead cells using low-frequency ultrasound waves and extragentle jackhammers. Other procedures, such as laser hair-removal or spider-vein treatments, foster beautiful skin that spans the entire body. Patrons can also opt for old-fashioned pampering in the form of facials that incorporate natural ingredients such as chamomile or pineapple enzymes.
With more than 40 years of combined experience, the clinical staff at Finesse Cosmetic Laser & Lipo Center works to beautify faces and bodies with a wide range of medical aesthetic procedures. Medical director and founder Dr. Peter Kruy performs laser- and ultrasound-assisted liposuction designed for reduced trauma and faster recovery times, while a team of nurses and medical aestheticians handles non-invasive treatments such as VelaShape body contouring or laser hair removal. The staff prioritizes client comfort by listening carefully to questions and concerns, and by outfitting their well-appointed waiting room with cushy chairs, a burbling wall fountain, and a choir of whales crooning lullabies.
The only thing sweeter than going to a Red Sox game is helping others when you go. With today's $125 Groupon, you get a ticket to attend the July 24 Sox vs. Orioles game and help out The Price Center at the same time. The evening starts with a 5:30 p.m. with dinner (included in the price) at the Best Buy Players Club at Fenway, followed by a raffle. The Sox begin their annihilation of the hapless Orioles at 7:05 p.m.
At America's Lipo Center and Spa, clients get a fully rounded ultrasound lipo treatment. Using no needles or incisions, a high-intensity focused ultrasound pinpoints fat cells and attacks their membranes so that they release their contents, much like when you tickle your sister so she drops the last piece of pizza. The fatty contents then make their way into the lymphatic system, where they're escorted from the body along with other toxins.
Next, radio frequency heats the targeted areas, liquefying fat and tightening the skin. Six to nine treatments tend to achieve the best results; a massage during each session gets the lymphatic system going. Clients also get their heart rates up with 30 minutes of supervised cardio to help burn fat, and they're entitled to unlimited use of the onsite exercise facilities.
The aestheticians and acne specialists at Clear Choice Acne Studio take pride in helping clients find clearer complexions. During consultations, the specialist seeks out the client's root cause of acne, whether it might be hormonal imbalances or digestive troubles. Then they can draft an informed and individualized treatment plan that relies on facials or light therapy and therapeutic home care. Those who stick to her regimens tend to see results in 6–12 weeks, and the studio boasts a 95% success rate.
