Inside the Rittenhouse Women's Wellness Center, DermaCenter Medical Spa is an oasis for women who want to improve the appearance and health of their skin without going under the knife. Dr. Leslie Saltzman and her team of female physicians and aestheticians specialize in the science side of the spa experience.

Plush gray couches and contemporary black tables induce states of calm inside the Philadelphia Institute of Cosmetic Surgery's waiting room. The corridors and reception area inside the beauty-bolstering office eschew the clinical appearance of traditional medical facilities for more a home-like décor, such as warmly lit floor lamps, paneled curtains, and porcelain figurines enveloped in snuggies. In the experienced hands of the office's highly trained staff, led by founder and medical director Dr. Zaki Ftaiha, a slew of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic services, such as Botox, implants, and microdermabrasion, smoothes and reshapes corporeal housings. Philadelphia Institute of Cosmetic Surgery's standards for patient care and treatment match the goals set by hospitals, earning the office accreditation from the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
From its bamboo floors to its locally sourced ceilings, Body Solutions embodies owner Steve Young's belief that healthy environments beget healthy bodies. Within the eco-friendly facility, Dr. Young melds the best of Eastern and Western medicine to help patients recover from injuries or to bolster wellness. Rather than kneading bodies with chemical-filled lotions and used motor oil, massage and physical therapists soak pores in all-natural soaps, cleansers, and lotions. They supplement massage therapy with Pilates, yoga, and martial arts, helping clients optimize their range of motion and achieve whole-body health.
