Often, to get where you're going, you need a road map. The knowledgeable staffers at Body Slim Laser Center aim to provide each of their patrons with such a map, which takes the form of a five-step program that pairs laser treatments with detoxification, consultations, whole-body vibration exercises, and nutrition and meal planning. An advanced body scanner gives practitioners nine-point information packets to assist in the weight-loss quest, detailing body-fat percentage, hydration levels, daily caloric intake, and the zodiac sign of each fat cell.
Envy Skin Clinic's staff includes a team of aestheticians and nurse injectors who work to extend the appearance of youth with minimally invasive procedures. Like a successful intergalactic empire, the team lets powerful lasers do most of the dirty work, employing a variety of beams designed to whisk away hair, reduce fat, and clarify the skin's surface. If subdermal intervention is required, however, units of wrinkle-smoothing Botox and Juvederm are available to help smooth faces from the inside out.
HCS MedSpa offers a wide assortment of rejuvenating treatments such as Venus Freeze, Dermapen Microneedling, HydraFacials, Botox, Dermal Fillers, Chemical Peels, Surface-Vein treatments, and High-Definition Laser Liposuction. From skin tightening to nail fungus removal, they use advanced technology and innovative treatments to improve appearance and wellness. Whether looking for subtle changes or head-to-toe makeovers, HCS MedSpa can create a customize program to suit an individual's needs.
Ideal Glow combines science and nature during holistic, technology-based aesthetic treatments. The team—which includes a naturopathic physician consultant, nurse practitioner, medical aesthetician, and neuromuscular therapist—specializes in harnessing the power of microcurrent technology. The staff uses low-level electrical currents to perform services including body sculpting and muscle rejuvenation, facial skin tightening, and cellulite reduction. The clinical crew can even use the technology to alleviate stress via transcranial microcurrent therapy, which stimulates brain waves to mimic a pattern that induces deep relaxation and the ability to psychically silence temperamental car alarms.
Other advanced, noninvasive techniques include Ultra-tone body shaping: a needle-free technique that uses an electric current to increase collagen and elastin production. The staff also targets fat and cellulite with the potent topical ingredients of heat-based body wraps.
The team at WellSpa believes the body heals itself; they only facilitate the process with spinal adjustments, acupuncture treatments, and therapeutic massages. This philosophy, and the staff’s nuanced understanding of the human body, has earned the center a spot on the USCA’s Best of Minnetonka list for both 2010 and 2011 in the Wellness Programs category. The center's noninvasive services also encompass cold-laser treatments, which can help alleviate conditions such as arthritis, asthma, and a belief that lasers only come out of superheroes’ eyes. Spa owner and UltraSlim Laser Technician Bessie Lahoz-Arne oversees the treatments, and has done so in the Twin Cities since 2009.
Dr. Lisa Verna practices chiropractic at Conscious Living Clinic, an alternative health-care facility. She excels in functional endocrinology, a holistic approach to hormonal issues, as well as functional neurology, a discipline that explores the interplay between the nervous system and environment. Applying her expertise in these areas, she zeroes in on the source of health problems and develops personalized treatment plans. Her healing methods are natural and non-medicinal. She favors infrared-sauna treatments for detoxification, chiropractic massage for chronic aches, and spinal adjustments for backbones that look like S, the letter of the day.
