In herbology, the white lily is representative of renewal and purity—as well as fertility. At White Lily Acupuncture, licensed acupuncturists and board-certified herbalists Christine Keller and Sarah Sawyer keep every symbolism of the flower in mind. Using the methods of traditional Chinese medicine, the two healers determine holistic treatment plans that help return balance to bodies. Custom treatment plans that begin with a thorough exam of the pulse and tongue often end with herbal prescriptions or acupuncture sessions to help stimulate the body’s energy flow and pop parasitic balloons clinging to the skin. On the women's side of the lily, Christine and Sarah target their procedures to help relieve everything from morning sickness and migraines to infertility and postpartum depression.
Dr. Patrick S. Carney, who boasts more than 20 years of skin-care expertise, leads an experienced staff of skinologists into the war for attention-grabbing radiance. Each visit to the pristine, welcoming clinic begins with a thorough assessment of the customer’s skin and complexion, allowing for the proper selection of light, laser, and voodoo-spell therapies to be customized for an effective treatment. A 30-minute IPL photofacial uses intense broad-spectrum pulsed light to treat skin conditions such as sun damage, broken capillaries, paintball indentations, irregular pigmentation, clingy barnacles, fine lines, superglued Halloween masks, and rosacea. By treating the areas of the skin with excess pigmentation, photofacial treatments result in healthy, luminous, younger-looking skin that mesmerizes passersby. For maximum results, IPL photofacial treatments are recommended in a series of three to six treatments. While side effects such as swelling, alteration in pigment, and blisters may occur, Skin Speaks takes all possible safety precautions to prevent them.
Licensed phlebologist Kamran Afzal oversees a trained staff that snoops and snuffs out rogue veins by means of either injection or laser treatment. During a 30-minute cosmetic sclerotherapy session, an ultrasound locates defective ducts and an injection (a maximum of 10cc of medicine) sends them to their doom, closing varicose veins to ease discomfort in the legs. During an EVLT treatment, a high-powered laser heats cursive veins from the inside, smoothing and shrinking them into a mild sans serif font. Both treatments eschew more invasive techniques and send patients home with no downtime. Although this deal is valid for a single session on one leg, a second Groupon may be purchased for an additional treatment on the same or one of the patient's other legs.
The quiet office of Gryskiewicz Twin Cities Cosmetic Surgery is a world away from the remote mountain regions of Guatemala. But it was in those mountains that Dr. Joe Gryskiewicz found his calling: to pursue a career in plastic surgery. While treating orphans suffering from cleft lips and palates, he couldn’t help but internalize the life-changing potential inherent in cosmetic breast augmentation.
Though he still pays annual medical visits to South and Central America, Dr. Joe has come a long way since that first experience. And wherever he goes, his reputation precedes him. A board-certified plastic surgeon, he specializes in cosmetic procedures that include breast augmentation using the "quick recovery technique", nose surgery, and body contouring. Away from the surgery room, clients also come to his spa for exfoliating Hydrafacials, skin-tightening Venus Freeze procedures, and cool sculpting fat reduction.
The staff at Wendy's Spa Services draws on more than 15 years of industry experience to blur the distinction between relaxation and beautification. Though many of their treatments are geared toward achieving aesthetic results, the staff commonly helps promote an inner state of calm with soothing add-ons. Reflexology, for example, can accompany mani-pedis, just as customized facials may include remedies for puffy eyes, and massages regularly make use of hot towels and aromatherapy. The staff relies on their own considerable artistry, as well as products from glo therapeutics, OPI, and Nufree—an alternative to wax that doesn't stick to the skin or cause one to be mistaken for one’s more famous wax-museum counterpart.
