Board-certified dermatologists Josephine M. Futrell and Sarah E. Glorioso take a highly scientific approach to treating the body’s biggest, most visible organ. With degrees in immunology and biomedical engineering to back up more than 20 years of medical experience, the duo of epidermal experts maintains the skin’s youthful allure with intense pulsed light and lasers, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots while destroying oncoming asteroids. They also wield an arsenal of antioxidant-enriched skincare products from free-radical enemies such as SkinCeuticals and Vivité, whose creams and serums lighten complexions with vitamins gathered from natural plant sources. Botox injections, chemical peels, and tattoo-removal treatments round out Ark-La-Tex Dermatology’s expansive menu of services.
Shreveport Bossier's dentistry practice provides family and cosmetic dentistry from two smile-brightening locations. Teeth-whitening treatments with Opalescence begin when impressions are taken of the teeth—forming customized bleaching trays that fit like tooth-leotards—and include comprehensive instructions for using the Opalescence trays at home. The whitening gel helps teeth achieve a sparkly sheen and a lightened shine, and possibly helps strengthen enamel, reduce sensitivity, and increase the skill of the cavity-fighting warriors living under the tongue.
The optical experts at Clifton Eye Center examine peepers and correct blurry vision with prescription lenses couched in designer frames. During a new-patient comprehensive exam ($110), a skilled optometrist evaluates eyes' focus, accuracy, and reactivity to light or compliments. Patrons with a prescription in hand can acquire sight correctors such as single-vision plastic lenses ($60) in frames by Cole Haan ($172.50–$185) or Michael Kors ($125–$167.50). Visitors can explore parallel racks of designer eyewear, selecting frames such as petite-fit BCBG Max Azria frames ($172.50–$197.50) that flatter faces without pinching noses or elbowing ears.

Sharing studio space, Survival Fitness and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Shreveport/Bossier imparts different fitness techniques to its students, with the ultimate goal of students carrying their teachings into their everyday lives. Over on the Survival Fitness side of things, personal trainers instruct exercisers in one-on-one sessions. The trainers put emphasis on working out the whole body instead of just quickly prepping clients for slinky summerwear, including focusing on habits and lifestyle. They see the human body as a machine that needs to be reprogrammed in order to see lasting results. Meanwhile, students at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Shreveport/Bossier learn the Gracie style of martial arts, which gets bodies and minds to work together to affect change, just like a movie set in a high school gets rival cliques to work together to plan prom.
