Since completing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology more than 20 years ago, Dr. James Kern has helped women maintain their inner well-being. Now, with the addition of medical aesthetics, Kern helps men and women alike showcase their outer beauty through both surgical and noninvasive procedures, from Botox to weight loss. Transformations can take place under the doctor-directed HCG diet, which deploys the HCG pregnancy hormone to speedily release unwanted fat cells in both men and women. Through the Body-Jet liposuction system, water flushes out fat to help sculpt and contour the body more effectively than a slip ‘n’ slide souped up with a pressure washer.
The team at NuDaya MedSpa & Weight Loss Centers uses high-tech means to improve clients' appearances. A collection of lasers erases wrinkles, spider veins, and patches of body hair, and a device called the Lumicell Touch irons out cellulite lumps with mechanized massage. Even the weight-loss plans incorporate modern methods; lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants help patients slim down so that they can fit into their skinny jeans or form-fitting choir robes.
Koko FitClub’s digital keys unlock personalized strength-training regimens tailored to each guest’s abilities and goals. Each user receives a small, USB-like device that stores personal fitness data, which is extracted during an initial fitness consultation. During each workout, guests plug their keys into the host of strength-training and cardio equipment. Based on the key’s data, the machines display the user’s ideal strength-training and resistance level or number of reps for each session—and even rate how they’re performing. The system adapts routines as members work toward their goals, offering them the intelligence of a personal trainer without the costly fees or hassle of matching schedules. Online tracking further digitizes training, allowing users to see their progress on their home computers, in the very same browser where they’ll soon order smaller clown suits.
The mission of Energee Massage is right in the name: to help clients regain their healthy vigor. Under the direction of founder Dr. John Boren, a skilled staff provides both fitness and wellness services in one spacious building. The treatments themselves continue the active theme—15-minute express workouts, for example, rely on whole-body vibration platforms and other specialized equipment designed to efficiently tone muscles. Guests seeking relaxation can opt for a classic massage, recline atop a dry HydroMassage table, or kick back in a RoboMassage chair programmed to feel empathy. An onsite infrared sauna promotes detoxification and works to burn calories, and weight-loss programs provide nutritional guidance. No matter what the treatment, the wellness professionals aim to make Energee Massage a welcoming place to begin or continue on the road to health.
The beauty pros at HMMC Houston specialize in rejuvenating and slimming treatments that require neither dark magic nor scalpels. They whittle down physiques with radiofrequency, cavitation, and body-contouring lasers, as well as a plethora of body wraps that address cellulite, skin laxity, and entrenched toxins. Chemical peels strip complexions clean of dull, dead skin cells and work to minimize the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and dimples you don't find cute anymore, while micro-roller treatments stimulate healing and cell renewal with hundreds of teeny pokes.
Selah Medi Spa’s skilled aestheticians address skin concerns, making epidermises glow from head to toe in a soothing spa setting. Personalized facials inundate skin with a radiance usually only achievable through hours of strenuous ant-farm labor, and injections of Botox or Juvederm revive youthful looks. Patrons can also purchase Glōminerals makeup, which enhances natural beauty with UV protection and light reflectors. Licensed massage therapists also work through each tense barricade of ligaments and tendons, varying pressure to ease stress and alleviate pain.
