Although her training qualifies her to perform life-saving surgeries, Dr. Joanna DeLeo knows that, for many clients, the most valuable treatments are the ones that address longstanding aesthetic issues. With increased self-esteem in mind, she now harnesses the power of cosmetic procedures to match clients’ outer appearances to their inner spirits. Each day, she and her staff help remove acne with Isolaz treatments, plump away facial blemishes with Botox injections, and lift sagging skin with Ultherapy. For areas below the neck, they employ their multipurpose MedLite C Series laser to blast away unwanted hair, tattoos, or pigmentation.
Total Health's owner, Cheryl Hawkins—a holistic health consultant—coaches her clients on the intake of nutritional supplements and alternative treatments to springboard toward improved states of mental and physical health. A certified natural-health consultant, Cheryl sits down with each patient to help chart a course of therapeutic action per client request. Some opt to purge toxins and melt stress in a sweat-inducing session in the infrared sauna; others reach toward the healthier digestion and improved intake of nutrients that follow on the heels of colon-hydrotherapy treatments, which Cheryl has administered for more than 15 years.
Led by a pair of board-certified vein experts, Calcagno and Rossi Vein Treatment Center clears unsightly vascular blemishes with state-of-the-art technology. Using sclerothotherapy––a safe, foam-based medical injection––the team terraforms unsightly networks of unused and unwanted skin spindles into smooth, blemish-free dermascapes. Upon injection, the foam solution shrinks the enlarged veins, causing them to disappear as blood is rerouted into healthier nearby veins, which boast higher property values and lower crime rates. In certain cases, veins may become temporarily inflamed immediately following the treatment, though swelling should subside as they are absorbed by the body over time.
When Doctor of Chiropractic Thomas Smarsh encounters problems such as headaches, knee pain, and neuropathy, he doesn’t just wave away the symptoms with a well-placed Garfield Band-Aid. Instead, he seeks out the root cause of the malady—which often lies in an imbalance of the spine—and sets out to resolve the issue with manual adjustments, laser therapies, or corrective exercises. His clinic also helps patients slim down with medically supervised weight-loss programs and light-based body contouring.
Doctor of Chiropractic Martin S. Gildea operates under the position that the body is its own best doctor. Central to the self-healing properties of the body is the spinal cord, which often gets impinged by slipped disks or aggressive puppeteers. Dr. Gildea administers adjustments and other noninvasive techniques to ease individual columns of the spine back into place, taking pressure off pinched nerves and allowing the brain and body to resume smooth communication.
Using nourishing minerals and herbs, mud, seaweed, and dead sea salt, the beauty experts at Cooper Spa pamper clients with time-tested, natural ingredients; but they’ll also turn to advanced technology when they need to, gently sloughing off dead skin with microdermabrasion tools, swiping glycolic acid onto faces to fade blemishes, and directing microcurrents into skin to firm muscles. Many treatments already include add-ons: hot-stone massages are enhanced with hand exfoliations, eye treatments, and foot soaks complete with rubber duckies, and aromatherapy enhances Swedish kneads and body wraps.
