Dr. Calvin E. Williams, founder of Surgitrim and vice-president of the New Orleans Medical Association, brings years of experience and an attentive, caring demeanor to a range of body-beautification treatments. During each of their three visits, clients who opt for the Smooth Shapes treatments can pick from three separate, non-invasive Smooth Shapes procedures. Endermologie employs a double-roller to trap and stretch skin in the offending area, Lipodissolve involves a series of injections to dissolve fat cells, and Mesotherapy injections introduce homeopathic medicines and vitamins that tighten skin and melt underlying lipid sculptures. Each of the treatments not only reduces cellulite, but can also help to reduce thigh circumference.
At New Orleans Urgent Care, a team of doctors helps clients suffering from a spectrum of ailments, from simple headaches to broken bones. Patients can drop in for a visit for flu, tetanus, and hepatitis-B vaccinations, or stop in to the urgent-care unit, where they’ll be waited on as promptly as possible. The clinic is home to several exam rooms, a mini-lab, and a digital-x-ray machine to aid in efficient medical exams and speedy visits.
The massage therapists at Euphoric All Over Day Spa whisk their clients to quiet, comfortable rooms to perform about a half dozen massage modalities. Therapists can play soft music while rendering classic techniques such as Swedish and deep-tissue massages, or relaxing couples massages. The staff might also incorporate lotion or light oils, which lubricate the CD player so the soft music continues to play.
A full-service spa, Peaceful Beginnings treats clients to an array of relaxing and rejuvenating services. Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. After a licensed massage therapist employs oils and lotions to moderate muscular tensions, clients emerge with a newfound sense of repose, looser limbs, and a spring in their step.
With 25 years of experience treating hair loss under their belts, the experienced doctors at The Hair Loss Control Clinic aim to combat hair loss in men and women with painless laser hair-therapy treatments, earning the clinic a mention from WWLTV. During the consultation, doctors scrutinize scalps, explain the treatment, and answer patient questions, such as “Why doesn’t male pattern baldness create more interesting designs?” Patients can sit and relax as a safe low-light-level laser, which boasts a 30-year track record and a successful FDA clinical trial, haloes heads in red-light energy in an effort to rout out male and female pattern baldness, thinning hair, alopecia areata, and traction alopecia. The light works to stimulate metabolism and dormant disco-dance moves in cells, helping follicles repair themselves.
