The lotus flower symbolizes renewal, rejuvenation, and refinement. Using this blossom as their inspiration, the beauty professionals behind Lotus Medical Group aim to help renew, rejuvenate, and refine skin with cosmetic injections, peels, and laser treatments. Noninvasive treatments help clients on a quest for weight loss to achieve shapelier silhouettes with lasers, radio frequencies, and appetite suppressants. When patients stroll through Lotus Medical Group glass doors, cherry-blossom murals greet their eyes from behind a dark wooden desk. Leather chairs, potted plants, and tan fabric couches occupy the serene space, which comfortably fits three laser-treatment rooms, four skincare rooms, and one fully functioning Gutenberg printing press.
Offering treatments that span 5,000 years of health care, the multitalented team at Dr. Midas Medical Group can alleviate ailments with everything from acupuncture, which originated in China five millennia ago, to modern laser technology. Their range of services also treats a wide variety of issues. The board-certified physicians and nurses can just as readily smooth wrinkles with Botox and other dermal fillers, as wield physique-contouring cold lasers, which liquefy fat in hard-to-tone areas. Meanwhile, acupuncturists insert their hair-thin needles into bodies at key points, addressing maladies such as infertility, unwanted weight, and blocked energy pathways. To complement the clinic?s noninvasive services, the staff also performs plastic-surgery treatments, which range from liposuction to face-lifts to setting broken Barbie arms.
In the 50-plus years that Dr. Joseph Ravenna has been practicing medicine, he's developed some theories regarding obesity and weight loss. He believes that both conditions can be blamed not only on the foods we eat or the ThighMasters we don?t squeeze, but also the society we live in and the culture we're surrounded by. Dr. Ravenna?s staff aims to educate clients on healthier ways of thinking about weight, offering them medical and pharmaceutical support as they work to uncover their slimmer selves.
Contour Dermatology bolsters patients struggling with friction-inducing strands and stubble with safe, comfortable laser hair-removal techniques. Over the course of three sessions, medically trained staffers teleport black or brunette fuzz from the face or body to a far-off galaxy by aiming a low-energy GentleLase beam at follicular bases. Charged particles carry enough energy to blast away the melanin inside errant bristles but leave the surrounding skin healthy and unharmed. Like planning a date for your parents, the procedure can be slightly uncomfortable, so technicians employ a cool laser tip, gel, or spray to soothe the skin and help spare nerves undue unpleasantness. Most complexions are acceptable candidates for laser hair removal, but clients with a very dark complexion may be subject to a spot test to ensure effective treatment. Clients need three to six sessions on average to impede ill-placed tufts during the active phase of each follicle's growth cycle.
