The founder and director of Dermatology Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Dr. Christopher A. Snyder, leads an aesthetically trained staff in revising clients' guises via cosmetic, medical, and surgical care. Traditional dermatology services can unburden bodies suffering from embarrassing conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and whipped cream leftover from the office pie toss, as well as treating the skin-based symptoms of cancer and infections. Visages travel back in time with medi-spa treatments, including chemical peels, facials, and waxing, alongside injectibles that attempt to return façades to their factory-issued forms. Borrowing from the technology of every sci-fi movie, laser treatments can eradicate unwanted hair, reverse scarring and imperfections, and entertain lackadaisical housecats
At Columbus & Perfection Lasers, Dr. William F. Columbus and a team of licensed practitioners draw from thousands of successful laser-based and cosmetic procedures to restore the sight, rejuvenate the skin, and whiten the teeth of grateful patients. The good doctor and his staff master the versatile capabilities of amplified light, from removing unwanted hair to sharpening fields of vision to distracting overstimulated kittens. DermaMed microdermabrasion equipment treats minor imperfections and exfoliates the top layer of dead skin, and cosmetic injections safely smooth away offending wrinkles. Under the steady hand of a qualified medical professional, beneficial beams of photons target imperfections, leaving behind glistening rows of teeth after Zoom! whitening procedures or 20/20 vision during LASIK treatments.
As the morning begins, a row of toddlers takes turns tumbling feet over head while their parents guide them into the correct movement. Later, school-age kids sit in a circle, legs stretched before them as they try to touch their toes. The trained staff of My Gym Children's Fitness Center imbue kids with life skills through music, physical activities, and games. Many classes incorporate physical exercises with social and developmental skills, while summer camps are also available seasonally. All classes take place in a well-padded room, led by staff trained in child development and fluent in Muppet.
Steamtown Yoga’s certified yoga instructors lead their students through energizing poses with a double-dose of enthusiasm in a studio infused with muscle-loosening heat. The schedule brims with 90-minute classes for students of all skill levels, which like televised readings of Beowulf, run seven days a week. Trained by hot-yoga superstars Bikram Choudhury and Jimmy Barkan, studio owner Lara Rubin gives newbies a solid foundation to build their yoga practice and can help even the most advanced yogis perfect their poses with demonstration, verbal cues, and hands-on modifications. In addition to melting stress, the sweltering temperature helps students deepen stretches and purge toxins with each bead of sweat. Separate men’s and women’s changing rooms reward students’ efforts with hot showers, hair dryers, and a enough space to wriggle out of a constrictive cocoon.
Since completing his residency in ophthalmology at Henry Ford Health Sciences Center in 1994 and a refractive surgery fellowship at the Kresge Eye Institute in Detroit in 1995, Dr. Steven Vale has performed more than 26,000 laser vision-correction surgeries.
