Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lewis Obi of Renaissance Center for Cosmetic Renewal has assembled a staff dedicated to the artistry of beauty-enhancing therapies. A Jacksonville native, Dr. Obi served in the United States Marine Corps and graduated cum laude from the University of Florida with a pharmacy degree. He then continued his medical education at the University of Miami, where his medical thesis was published in the international magazine Medical World News.
Dr. Obi performs myriad plastic-surgery procedures such as face-lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction, as well as minimally and noninvasive laser procedures ranging from skin tightening to laser hair removal. He and his technicians also perform facial cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and photofacial treatments that aim to treat a variety of skin types and ailments, such as rosacea, sun damage, and Sharpie unibrows.
At First Coast Plastic Surgery, board-certified surgeon David N. Csikai and his team of specialists perform an array of aesthetic treatments. Among their specialties are surgeries such as browlifts and liposuction and non-invasive treatments that include Botox, Radiesse, and laser resurfacing.
At InfiniTrim, technicians slim physiques without surgery. instead, they employ the LipoTranz fat removal system, which draws on technologies from laser beams to radio frequencies. Ironically, though, the cutting edge technology actually works to mimic an age-old process: natural metabolism. The treatments break up fat non-invasively, then shift it into the lymphatic system, where the body can dispose of it naturally.
These signature contouring treatments are just one of the ways the team works to beautify physiques. Their InfiniLase laser hair removal treatments, for example, permanently minimize hair growth in areas such as the underarms, while services such as microdermabrasion, peels, and laser-based acne treatments help refine complexions.
Rehabilitation is the ultimate goal at Physical Healthcare of Jacksonville. Led by Dr. Mark Pierce, the center's staff provides an alternative to the prescription medications and invasive surgeries of traditional medical care. Instead, patients can receive treatments that address the underlying conditions that cause painful symptoms, helping them not only overcome chronic pains, but also become more resistant to injuries over time. The healthcare professionals accomplish this by providing atlas-orthogonal chiropractic care—realigning vertebrae and improving communication along the spine—and by offering everything from massage therapy to nutritional and lifestyle counseling. They also cater to patients' cosmetic needs, helping slim silhouettes with LED body-contouring technology.
Well versed in the myriad methods of weight loss and their varying effectiveness on different body types, medical director Dr. Anthony Capasso employs a wide range of regimens and one-off treatments to help his patients achieve their target weight. His supervised diet programs emphasize the principle of low glycemic index to reduce cholesterol, triglycerides, and eye injuries caused by rocketing jean buttons, allowing clients to take matters of slimness into their own hands. For more immediate results, however, Dr. Capasso wields noninvasive Venus Freeze and Zerona technology, which sheds inches from physiques in a matter of weeks and gives patients a head start on weight loss.
The staff at Slim Body & Spa understand that weight loss isn’t just about appearances, it’s about general health, too. So, they combine their knowledge of diet, exercise, and preventative health care with effective technology such as the noninvasive Lipo Light, which causes fat cells to release water, glycerol, and fatty acids, resulting in body contouring and weight loss. They also offer nutritional counseling, body wraps, and whole-body vibration, and can customize combinations of programs to meet optimal and safe weight-loss results.
