The practitioners at In Shape MD guide wellness-seekers through medically supervised diet and anti-aging programs. For their custom medical weight-loss plans, they take data harvested during an initial exam, lab tests, and games of Guess Who, and then use it to build a nutrition plan and personal-training regimen. Weight-management tablets, protein supplements, and B12 and lipotropic shots enhance dieting efforts. The medical experts also track weight-loss progress and provide support for participants through weekly weigh-ins and vitals checks. Guests can also choose weight-loss enhancements à la carte. B12 and lipotropic injections, as well as bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy for both men and women, are always available to increase energy, relieve mood swings, and enhance overall well-being.
Laser treatments are the focus at Reflection Medical Spa: laser hair removal, laser cellulite reduction, laser vein removal, laser facials. Lasers fit with the med spa's commitment to noninvasive cosmetic beauty procedures. In addition to its host of laser treatments, Reflection's staff, led by Dr. Florencia R. Guzman, injects dermal fillers, such as Botox and Juvéderm; rejuvenates skin with facial procedures, such as fractional skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion; and aids weight loss with methods that include meal replacements and appetite suppressants.
With multiple locations across the country, VeinSolutions specializes in cosmetic procedures performed by a staff of board-certified vascular surgeons that tailor each treatment to the patient's individual needs. Sclerotherapy targets and minimizes the appearance of unsightly spider veins. After a brief evaluation, the doctor will inject 18 cc's of FDA–approved solution into the voracious vein to start the divorce proceedings. Once the vein wall has become sticky, legs don a pair of compression hose for several days which causes the damaged veins to fuse, break down, and dissolve back into the body, and reassures nervous gams with a round-the-clock bear hug.
Medicine runs in the family for Dr. Mona Foad, a board-certified dermatologist who shares bloodlines with experts in rheumatology, internal medicine, and orthopedic surgery. Shaped by the many specializations within her family tree, Dr. Foad oversees the Cincinnati Dermatology Center, where a staff of technicians and aestheticians address patients' medical, surgical, and cosmetic skincare concerns.
The center's arsenal of med-spa technology includes multiple cosmetic laser systems, which can banish unwanted stubble, refine skin tone and texture, or quickly skip through scenes on most DVDs. Among the many services available, the facility also provides chemical peels that resurface cheekbones and dermal fillers that help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
At The Better You Clinic and Spa, board-certified physician Dr. Karen Jobalia makes one-on-one support the pillar of her practice. A certified supervisor of hCG-supplemented diet plans, she encourages her weight-loss patients to call and text for moral support and meets with all dermal-filler recipients a week after their treatments to administer touchups and help fill out each wrinkle’s change-of-address card.
With more than 30 years of experience eradicating veins, Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center's expert staff administers quick and precise spider-vein treatments that rejuvenate epidermal surfaces. During sclerotherapy sessions, two CCs of saline solution traverse each client's entire network of veins, treating multiple areas simultaneously rather than tracing out individual veins or hypnotizing blood streams to imbue them with arachnophobia. Each treatment requires less than an hour to permanently diminish unwanted veins, though some patients may require multiple visits. Wintertime treatments help ensure that veins vanish by spring, so patrons can proudly display their unblemished limbs at outdoor cookouts or speed-dating sessions with single bears recently roused from hibernation.
