When it comes to helping clients lose weight, the staff members at Medical Weight Loss, LLC don't rely on dieting and exercising alone. They also employ medically oriented techniques such as B12 injections, lab work, EKGs, and body-fat analyses. To help patients overcome cravings at home, the staff can also prescribe appetite suppressants.
Jay J. Garcia and his cadre of bariatric physicians customize safe weight-loss programs for patients yearning to shed pounds. The two-week plan opens with a consultation, during which time a specialist charts each client’s starting measurements, completes an EKG and blood work, maps out a nutritional plan, and prescribes medication and supplements. Clients also receive an injection of B vitamins and FDA-approved medicine to balance hormones and jump-start the metabolism without crashing cymbals near the stomach. After the initial visit, patients return three more times for quick injections and a follow-up to ensure the program is functioning smoothly. The clinic also arms clients with a 30-day supply of multivitamins and a stress-support supplement.
From the soft pillows on the wicker furniture to the luxurious drapes that conceal private treatment rooms, April Beauty Time and Health Spa is clearly a place intended for relaxation—for guests.

A single phone call may not motivate you to lose weight, but the Genetix Program’s weight-loss regimen doesn’t consist of just one call; in fact, it can consist of hundreds. Each client is paired with a certified weight-loss coach with whom they chat on the phone at least once daily, discussing their meals, workouts, and stressors. Based on these conversations—as well as input from doctors, nutritionists, and personal trainers—these coaches craft personalized nutrition-and-exercise programs for each participant. They also aim to motivate clients through rough patches, while educating them on healthy habits, such as taking the stairs instead of riding their mansions’ complex escalator systems. Results are visible not only in clients’ slimmer physiques, but also in their online profiles and calendars, which the coaches update daily to document progress.
At Becoming New, a diverse team of licensed cosmeticians, a paramedical esthetician, a massage therapist, and nail technicians enhance appearances with modern technology.

For gentler rejuvenation, skin experts treat pores to blueberry and champagne facials. The staff add the finishing touches to appearances with permanent hair removal and manicures that brighten nails with CND Shellac and Gelish polish, which resist chipping even while slapping a rude statue.
