Dr. B. Tasleyma Sattar is an osteopathic doctor and researcher who's devoted her practice to holistic family medicine. Drawing on her experience as the chief resident at Palmetto General Hospital and owner of Oakmont Wellness Center, Dr. Sattar conducts diagnostic tests and therapies to address everyday issues. At her office she specializes not only in family medicine but also in travel medicine, administering immunizations, offering one-on-one counseling, and supplying patients with airport-friendly, metal-free stethoscopes.
At the Wellness Med Spa & Laser Center, board-certified medical director David Kaner leads a team of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians who perform a suite of treatments for the face and body. Through a blend of traditional and technologically enhanced techniques, they reawaken youth with services customized to specific skin needs. Classic facials hydrate and clean the pores, and microdermabrasion uses mechanical instruments to lift away sun-damaged skin. Therapists deliver a range of massage modalities, and aestheticians enhance the natural outlines of the eyes with traditional makeup application. For more advanced treatments, staff members use laser and light therapies for skin tightening, hair removal, and curing fears of the dark.

The professionals at Innovate Health circumvent the gastrointestinal tract when they deliver health-boosting vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients intravenously. They flood the body with an appropriate amount of micronutrients—including B12, C, zinc, glutamine, and oleic acid—according to tests that measure needs with patients' white blood cells. The nutrients work to boost the immune system, metabolism, and nervous system. Additionally, the staff offers a detox program that works to remove a harmful buildup of toxins in the body, such as molds, chemicals, or preservatives.
Though her skin- and body-care treatments may seem comparable to those found at a traditional spa, aesthetician Samantha Smith strives for clinical rather than superficial results with each service. The owner and head aesthetician at Elite Skin Solutions continually furthers her beauty know-how through ongoing education: after completing a 750-hour esthetology program in 2010, she enrolled in a nursing program so that she could offer clients the latest med-spa services. Her treatments—which include facials, chemical peels, and nonsurgical face-lifts—rely on physician-grade products and innovative technologies such as microcurrents, microskin needling, and PCA Skin products to produce optimal results with minimal downtime.
