Dermatologist Dr. Jeffrey R. LaDuca and the team at Reflections strive to ensure their clients have all the facts about their cosmetic services. To that end, the beauty specialists offer free consultations to educate and enlighten those interested in injectable, chemical, and laser-driven procedures. Their expertise helps people choose the most suitable way to fight signs of aging on the face or cellulite on the body, and to address medical conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, or human scales. The clinic's skincare boutique is stocked with pharmaceutical-grade products such as SkinCeuticals serums and lotions, along with mechanized at-home cleansing systems.
Gazella Performance & Wellness Studio offers students chances to stretch their soul sacks to their limberest limits with classes such as Mat Pilates, Balance & Flexibility, and CoreStrength, open to all experience levels and led by expertly trained, certified instructors. Downward-dogging Goldilocks can find a just-right body-bending routine that doesn't lead to breaking and entering charges with Gazella's variety of yoga offerings, including power yoga, gentle yoga, and joint-freeing yoga. Keep blood pumpers well-lubricated with a spinning class, which features nonimpact indoor-cycling exercises that are appropriate for all fitness levels, or dance like your fitness instructor is watching to the Latin rhythms of Gazella’s Zumba classes, which combine fast and slow rhythms with cardio, resistance training, tequila, and lime juice to create a boisterously blended dance workout.
Located in central New York, just off New York State Thruway exit 40, midway between Rochester and Syracuse, sonorous moos and sloshing tins of milk once echoed across this idyllic nine-hole course, which James and Dee Ball converted from their family dairy farm in 1968. Since then, Meadowbrook Golf Club has seen a slew of proprietors, each of whom have added their own distinct touch by installing automatic watering, improving the drainage system, or building a 40’x80’ pole barn to house equipment and botched Dorf clones.
In May 2008, PGA golf professional Trey Walewski and his wife, Tina, took over the Meadowbrook. The golf club remains a family owned and operated business with Trey and Tina, and their daughters, Taylor and Sydney, taking on the operations of the course, practice facilities, pro shop, and bar and grill.
Ja Spa & Fitness's well-equipped gym beckons exercisers with a host of Cybex and Precor workout apparatuses and a menu of eco-friendly spa services for unwinding after intense sessions of sweat manufacturing. On the main floor, a strength-training circuit of Cybex Eagle gear welcomes challengers with tough resistance, and treadmills on the second level improve endurance for running after ding-dong ditches. In the gym's hardwood-floor studios, lively instructors lead a variety of group fitness classes such as boot camp, spin sessions on Trixter X-Bikes, and boxing sessions for women and children. Private chambers along the spa area's winding hallways ensconce clients, who can indulge in skin and nail services to boost bodily aesthetics. Three levels of tanning beds coat limbs in bronze hues, and a team of massage therapists plies tension from overworked muscles. Brick archways and a stonework fountain complement Ja Spa & Fitness's high ceilings and taxidermied tyrannosauruses for a lodge-like vibe.
Piloted by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Potenza, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery provides a variety of beauty-enhancing services in a medically sound environment. Licensed medical aesthetician Shannon Martin zaps the wayward blood vessels known as spider veins with her Venus-imported Cutera laser, using light-generated heat to kill off offending veins by coagulating the blood within them. Deceased vessels are subsequently reabsorbed into the body, fading away like Mozart’s one-hit-wonder career over a period of four to six weeks. The cosmetic treatment is safe on all skin types, returning epidermises to their porcelain-scented factory settings.
