Like building a home, losing weight involves the interlocking of several pieces. The weight-loss architects at Physicians Weight Control build healthy physiques upon four pillars. Diet plans personalized to the client’s lifestyle control intake of nutrients and fat, fueling the clinic's aerobic-exercise plans. The last two pillars—appetite suppressants and vitamin supplements—combine to keep energy levels up and re-create the rush of swallowing a candy bar whole once the client starts eating smaller meals.
When Dr. Watson founded Vivify Medical, he wanted to create a clinic that used preventative methods to enhance its clients’ quality of life rather than waiting to treat symptoms once they become sick. Today, his staff keeps this motto in mind while administering physician-grade services, such as a variety of weight-loss-management programs, addiction-related treatments, and bio-identical hormone therapy that aims to slow signs of aging. In addition to medical services, the clinic assuages skin with aesthetic treatments including microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Dr. Robert Detweiler and medical aesthetician Jill Basile use therapies tailored to individual skincare needs to help clients look their best. Using medical-grade products, including the center's own custom skincare line, aestheticians tend to skin with custom facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and glycolic-acid peels. They also use the Cutera Cool Glide and Lime Light lasers to improve skin tone or remove unwanted hair and spider veins. Dr. Detweiler and his team can also improve skin condition with wrinkle correction in the form of Botox injections, dermal fillers, or encouraging clients to smile only with their eyes.
At each of its 18 New Jersey and Pennsylvania locations, Health and Wellness Center's teams of licensed staffers harnesses noninvasive lasers and lPL technology for a series of skin- and health-enhancing treatments. Lasers remove unwanted hair from bodies and control cases of rosacea, or cold-laser sessions aid in weight loss and diminish the urge to smoke cigarettes or strange meats. Light beams in IPL treatments, meanwhile, enrich epidermises during skin-rejuvenation and skin-tightening sessions. To balance out the laser-centric services, Health and Wellness Center also beautifies clients with chemical peels and Botox treatments.
