It's hard to look beautiful on the outside if you're not healthy on the inside. That's why Dr. Kavita Beri and the staff at Beri Esthetique cover all the bases by offering both primary medical care and cosmetic treatments. The doctor gives special attention to preventative measures when treating patients who have or are at risk of hypertension, diabetes, and asthma, and she performs annual heath screenings to keep patients on the lookout for these conditions. In the cosmetic department, she and her staff strive to use the least invasive means possible to achieve clear, youthful complexions in their clients. Some services, such as laser hair removal, laser spider-vein removal, and IPL photofacials, require hardly a touch, and slightly more aggressive treatments such as Botox and PCA chemical peels can be performed in a single office visit, much like a routine lollipop-endectomy.
After a sterling two-decade career as a board-certified internist and gastroenterologist, Dr. Ramon Suatengco needed a fresh way to make a difference in the lives of his patients. After realizing the power inherent in blending his medical expertise with an artist's eye for detail, he founded The Radiance, A Medical Spa, where he and his team blend clinical education with modern technology to accomplish revitalizing beauty treatments. The Lipo-Ex, a highlight of their repertoire, can help clients lose up to three sizes after eight weeks of treatment. It’s a non-invasive procedure using radio frequency energy to break down fatty tissue beneath the skin, which then leaves the body via the lymphatic system’s natural processes, leaving behind slimmer physiques that help patients take the first step toward healthier lifestyles. This dedication to life-changing therapies is just par for the course for Dr. Suatengco; when he's not busy treating patients or staying involved with the New Jersey Medical Society, he can often be found giving back to the community through numerous philanthropies and serving as the president and chairman of the Filipino-American Community Development Center.
When Kimberly Schadewald won a gift certificate for a massage, she wasn’t just winning free relief from stress. She was winning relief from the chronic pain that had plagued her since a work injury when she was 16. It also led her to discover a calling to heal others in the same way. Before founding 5 Points Wellness LLC, she studied Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy at the Gentle Healing School of Massage before attending Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to study reiki. Equipped with this knowledge and experience, Schadewald helps clients alternatively manage and prevent pain through massage services with amenities such as a heated cherry stone pillow that eases areas of deep tension. She also works with children over the age of 6 to eradicate the daily stress of growing older, going to school, and cat fighting with imaginary friends.
