The doctors and staff of MediPro Direct Slim use a truly holistic approach to weight loss—that is, they target fat from both the inside and out. Their arsenal of noninvasive fat-reduction technology handles the job from the outside, calling on lasers, sound waves, and mechanical massage to flush fat from the body in treatments that can be performed in as little as a lunch break. The Cavi-Lipo system, meanwhile, uses ultrasound energy to painlessly perforate fat cells in a treatment that has been demonstrated in real-time at trade shows and featured on Dr. Oz.
To spur weight loss from within, the team offers a number of effective weight-loss programs. According to the client's body type and weight loss goals, the experts can devise a regimen that incorporates specialized protein or low-calorie nutrition plans to help bodies shed pounds and gain energy.
Tacoma Laser Clinic tackles blemishes with advanced technology and aesthetic know-how. Its staff is trained in laser systems and dermal fillers, which could help clients look young enough to get carded even when they're buying a rum cake with "Happy 30th Birthday to Me!" written in icing. Their treatments include laser hair removal, Botox, and myriad skincare treatments for everything from lack of elasticity to discoloration. Tacoma Laser also offers tattoo removal should clients want to remove inked designs they now regret, such as the one on their shoulder that reads, "Happy 30th Birthday to Me!"
With 25 years of professional practice, board-certified nurse practitioner Margaret L. Larson leads the team Larson Medical Aesthetics in performing cosmetic procedures in a medically sound environment. Margaret and the rest of the licensed staff smooth away wrinkles with injections of Botox and Juv?derm and improve epidermal appearances with devices developed by Alma Lasers. Patients can also visit the center for laser hair reduction, skin rejuvenation, skin-tightening and resurfacing treatments, or metabolic detox programs, which promote health more effectively than eating an apple one day or adding bits of a Men's Health magazine to a protein smoothie.
Love My Skin & Body offers spa and medical skin care treatments that are customized to address each client's individual needs. On the spa side of things there are massages and treatments like the red carpet ready O2 facial, which pits oxygen, plant-derived stem cells, and enzymatic botanicals against blemishes or skin damaged from always trying to examine one's own face without a mirror. Love My Skin also offers more advanced forms of skin care that use medical-grade solutions and techniques, including MD chemical peels and Rejuvepen collagen induction therapy.
Triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Jan Zemplenyi of Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery—which opened in 1989—makes himself available 24/7 after every patient’s reconstructive, cosmetic, or otolaryngology surgery. He can reach for Botox injections to ward off facial wrinkles, or use a Reaction by Viora system, which combines three radio-frequency modes and a vacuum effect, to tighten skin while simultaneously spooking cellulite until it runs away. The doctor also performs noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing, and donates his services to victims of domestic violence.
