BA MedSpa & Weight Loss Center helps patients not only reach their desired weight but also maintain it. The center’s two-phase weight-loss program is aggressive, beginning with an 800-calorie diet—the potentially taxing effects of which are largely neutralized by the HCG injections that accompany it. Since a true lifestyle change is necessary to keep the weight off, the center then provides recipes and other instructions for establishing healthy habits.
There are other ways to improve your appearance at the clinic, too. Clients stop in for aesthetic services, such as wrinkle-reducing beauty injections, laser-administered facials, and hair-removal treatments. They also undergo permanent cosmetic applications, which allow them to wake up each morning with flawlessly drawn eyebrows, perfectly lined lips, and incredibly well-hidden butterfly-kissing scars.
Ashley, a licensed and enthusiastic cosmetologist, spruces up drab fingers and toes in the welcoming confines of Hideaway Salon. During the Shellac manicure, nails receive attentive tailoring in length and shape before Ashley pushes back excess cuticles with the determination, but not the mallet, of a professional Whac-a-Mole player. Fingers then enjoy a glitter, shimmer, or crème coating of CND Shellac, a polish that sets under a UV lamp and remains chip-free and resilient for up to two weeks. Ashley finishes manis with a light hand and lower-arm massage and sweeps nail surfaces with touch of jojoba oil and vitamin E-infused CND Solar oil. Shellac pedicures follow the same luxuries, though feet receive a tranquil soak, exfoliation treatment, and slathering of mint lotion to produce silky skin fit for the finest of footy pajamas.
Darrick S. Davis and his team see value in the body's ability to heal itself. In answer to drugs and surgeries, Davis cracks his knuckles and sets to work adjusting and massaging the musculature with the help of chiropractic machines. He and his team use physical tests, x-rays, and dark-field nutritional analysis to uncover the cause of maladies such as degenerative disks, sciatica, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Davis individualizes his response to findings—he always makes a different facial expression, then prescribes a course of action that may include spinal adjustments, massage, and physical therapy.
