Permanent Perfection Permanent Cosmetics’ licensed beauticians upgrade clients' appearances with classic and uncommon spa services. During therapeutic cupping treatments, staffers create small pockets of suction to gently increase lymphatic flow, reduce toxins, contour bodies, and ameliorate scarring. To mold shapelier frames, technicians swaddle guests with slimming body wraps or melt fat with ultrasound liposuction. In addition to body treatments, the clinic offers teeth-whitening, facials, and permanent-makeup applications. Permanent Perfection's techs can also remove tattoos by using advanced technology or traveling back in time and trapping your past self in a net.
A licensed pharmacist and clinician, James B. LaValle founded LaValle Metabolic Institute in 2001 to help people discover the benefits of integrated health care. To that end, he has teamed up with Dr. Gary Huber (DO) and assembled a team of experienced medical staff to assist patients to educate clients. They administer nutritional consults and Metabolic Code assessments, which analyze metabolic makeup in order to create a personalized plan for health. The clinic also focuses on hormone-replacement therapy, weight loss, stress and sleep support as well as GI issues.
For Cincinnati natives James T. Lutz, MD, and Daniel L. Buchanan, DC, the inspiration to help others lose weight came not from classrooms but from discussions with patients. James' work as the medical director of Bethesda Hospital's Weight Control for Life program showed him the trouble many patients have maintaining weight loss. After watching clients' ups and downs, Dr. Lutz developed the UniqueU program, a medically structured system that fosters weight reduction within clients without sacrificing safety.
At StrongFit, a team of certified personal trainers take a personal and multidisciplinary approach to fitness—they construct individual fitness and nutrition regimens for each of their clients. The trainers' customized plans are based on the results of fitness assessments sanctioned by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and congratulatory high-fives have been approved by a roundtable of local surfers. Using the results of these tests, the trainers determine what exercises are ideal for their trainees and then motivate them to meet fitness goals in one-on-one training sessions or in one of the gym’s boxing classes.
The practitioners at In Shape MD guide wellness-seekers through medically supervised diet and anti-aging programs. For their custom medical weight-loss plans, they take data harvested during an initial exam, lab tests, and games of Guess Who, and then use it to build a nutrition plan and personal-training regimen. Weight-management tablets, protein supplements, and B12 and lipotropic shots enhance dieting efforts. The medical experts also track weight-loss progress and provide support for participants through weekly weigh-ins and vitals checks. Guests can also choose weight-loss enhancements à la carte. B12 and lipotropic injections, as well as bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy for both men and women, are always available to increase energy, relieve mood swings, and enhance overall well-being.
