Dr. Michael Margolis, a board-certified physician, oversees each treatment at Erase The Ink M.D. To start, a trained technician applies topical Lidocaine to numb the area. Next, the technician aims a RevLite Q-switched laser at the offending ink. While the laser sends intense pulsed light beneath the skin to break up the pigment, which is then released naturally through the body’s immune system, a jet releases cold air on the area to optimize comfort. Not without a sense of humor, the staff donates its services to the patient with the worst tattoo each week.
At Fit Slim of Michigan, the team’s preferred weight-loss tool is light. The center specializes in a red light therapy dubbed UltraSlim, whose beams of LED light trick subcutaneous fat cells into releasing their contents—without painful incisions or any known side effects. Afterward, the freed fat is digested naturally, slimming inches from the midsection, thighs, and chest. As the treatments contour physiques, they also boost collagen and elastin production, tightening skin and combating cellulite.
During his 22-year tenure as director of Bloomfield Laser and Cosmetic Surgery Center, board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gregory Roche has constantly refined his practice, channeling years of ongoing education and training into more than 7,500 cosmetic surgeries. The Detroit native's career spans more than 30 years, during which he has treated the familiar faces and bodies of sports stars, models, and area Elvis impersonators and dispensed his expert opinion on Fox 2 News and radio programs such as such as WRIF's The Drew and Mike Show. One of his current interests is the efficacy of low-level lasers in body contouring, and his studies on the subject have found expression in multiple medical publications and clinical trials since the new millennium. Like all committed specialists and professional parachute testers, he rarely leaves his work at the office and has served as department chairman at the McLaren Medical Center and as a member of the American Board of Examiners, which oversees the certification of new physicians in facial plastic surgery.
A team of aestheticians and technicians augments Dr. Roche's specialization in surgery with FDA–cleared, non-invasive procedures designed to slim physiques and reveal healthy, youthful faces. The facility's commitment to staying at the forefront of the aesthetic industry has led it to surpass its own state-of-the-art work with lasers and bio-identical hormones. The Center collaborates with American CryoStem to harvest and store adult stem cells, which patients may retrieve later for use in cosmetic or regenerative therapies.:m]]
The massage therapists at La Vida Massage Bloomfield Hills ease aches and pains through therapeutic touch. They practice a wide range of modalities, gliding and tapping their hands during Swedish relaxation massages and pressing on specific energy meridians during reflexology. Along with massages, the specialists perform facials, peels, and waxing services as they lip-synch to Ricky Martin hits. The massage center is open seven days a week, serves customers of all ages, and resembles a two-story Swiss chalet, with multipaneled windows and wooden beams that crisscross a white façade.

Doctors Todd Saniszewski and Nora Clancy leverage a combined 38+ years of professional experience at Advanced Eye Care of Michigan, which is both a high-end store and an optometrist's office.

For clients in need of glasses or another prescription, Advanced Eye Care boasts a vast selection of brand-name frames in the front of the shop, and the staff equips them with custom-made lenses. The doctors' eye examinations can discover eye illnesses as well as test for the need for glasses or a third eye. Doctors Todd and Nora also have extensive training in the co-management of LASIK and cataract surgery. They take great pride in their staff, which works to make every visit to their office a simple one, instead of a convoluted symposium on insurance minutiae.
