Biovive Medicine's Dr. Kane Lai wields years of experience and a medical degree from Vanderbilt University to help his patients overcome weight and hormone obstacles. The board-certified bariatric surgeon and his staff of physicians, nutritionists, personal trainers, and nurse practitioners set in motion medical weight-loss programs designed to fight flab, combining exercise and diet regimens with lipotropic injections and medications when necessary. In addition to weight-loss services, the center also offers bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, which helps balance hormones set out of whack by menopause, andropause, and painfully vivid memories of high school dances.
Melinda Wingard is a former registered nurse who built upon her clinical experience with dermatology and laser training, eventually opening her own med spa more than 12 years ago. Today, she helps banish cellulite, performs body-contouring treatments with VelaShape, and exiles blemishes with the touch of her specialized medical laser beams and a firm “please.” Loose skin becomes tighter and wrinkles fade under her aesthetic lasers, which she also uses to remove unwanted hair, spider veins, scars, and moles. Wingard even administers laser facials, which resurface and tone skin.
Within the cozy confines of Kristina Spa Studio, Kristina pampers her clients with relaxing skin and body treatments. Classic Euro facials cleanse and moisturize complexions; luxurious 24-karat gold facials help reduce the appearance of fine lines; and acne facials target blemishes by reining in oil, soothing inflammation, and catching bacteria in microscopic mousetraps. In her massages, Kristina releases muscle tension, improves circulation, and tames stress with smooth Swedish strokes or more intense deep-tissue kneads.
Former martial-arts coach Aleksandr Serdyuk employs his corporeal awareness in tandem with a therapeutic team to carry out massages and weight-loss programs. Body wraps and the heat of a traditional Russian banya—complete with aromatherapy and oak-branch treatments—detoxify the body as they supplement weight-loss initiatives. The licensed massage therapists also undergo continuing education as they build their repertoire of more than 10 massage modalities, like deep-tissue massage for action figures.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dean Anderson, DC, the staff at Denver Zerona Lipo Laser harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time.
