Inside Manhattan Laser Spa, certified technicians use FDA-approved lasers to banish unwanted body hair, reduce the appearance of veins and vascular lesions, and combat signs of aging such as wrinkles, freckles, and sun spots.

A board-certified dermatologist with more than 30 years of skin-buffering experience, Dr. Westfried is ideally qualified to aid distressed dermis damsels and dudes alike. Let him scrub stains out of your spirit suit with carboxytherapy, a 15- to 30-minute cosmetic treatment. During this procedure, small doses of heated medical carbon dioxide are injected into stubborn stretch marks, stimulating new circulation. Skin-gussying gusts of oxygen then blow into the stretch mark and broken collagen is thought to begin repairing itself, using nothing more than scotch tape and Charleston Chew filling. The treatment works on most skin tones, and smooth-seekers should start to see results within weeks with no downtime or side effects. Each hide-healing session must be performed two to four weeks apart.
Since 1998, Bellalaser, Inc.’s certified technicians have cared for clients with a menu of noninvasive laser services for the skin and body. Using a laser armed with an integrated cooling system, licensed operators can help reduce or eliminate unwanted hair so patients can stop other hair-removal routines such as waxing or wearing a name tag while shirtless. Techs will also harness the power of the FDA-approved VelaShape laser system to reduce cellulite and shrink waist circumferences. Skin specialists use lasers to tighten and rejuvenate wrinkly skin, while aestheticians treat faces with a variety of non-laser procedures, including microdermabrasion, facials, and collagen masks. Bellalaser also carries a signature line of skincare products including sunblock, exfoliating body shampoo, and skin-tightening contouring gel.
Yolo Medical develops and manufactures noninvasive aesthetic medical equipment for use by certified spas and clinics.

Following the completion of any of Yolo Medical's treatments, its proprietary Yolo Elements supplements work to continue the process of weight loss and detoxification.
