Dual board-certified Dr. Victor Mendoza equips a staff of skilled professionals to craft safe skin solutions tailored for each client. Using a Jessner's solution of hydroxyl acids from natural sources such as citrus or plants, technicians apply chemical peels to help give all skin types a radiant glow. While each peel can be used by itself, guests can also receive multiple treatments spaced four weeks apart to help combat acne, shrink pore sizes, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Dr. Mendoza's team also combines traditional weight-management supplements with new-age laser treatments to help clients not only shed fat, but also remedy internal ailments such as fatigue or insomnia. The staff tailors each treatment program with preliminary tests that detect the hormone and toxin levels in each patient?s body, which helps determine whether their issues come from environmental forces or simply eating too many pennies. Lifestyle makeovers go even further with Fountain of Youth Medical Spa?s other services, such as laser hair removal and beauty injections.
What began as Anita Gibson's struggling, two-person family business has evolved into Advanced Weight Loss Clinics, an organization with 17 corporately owned clinics and 3 franchise locations spread throughout the southeastern United States. Each center's team of doctors and weight-loss specialists encourages clients to win a similarly daunting battle by creating personalized plans for success. The program incorporates vitamins, supplements, and appetite suppressants with a low-calorie, low-fat meal plan that discourages using soft-serve ice cream as toothpaste.
The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics, and Dr. McKinney’s spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Invisalign eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. A comprehensive oral exam (a $100 value), including x-rays and photos (a $150 value), and models of your mouth terrain (a $75 value) will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment or braces treatment varies with each customer (the average cost is $4,950 for a full Invisalign treatment, $3,950 for Invisalign Express, and $4,950 for a braces treatment).
Although the noninvasive light therapy Dr. Michael McCracken uses to help his patients slim down looks futuristic, the technology actually works with the body's age-old processes. Unlike liposuction, which completely removes the cells and causes body distortion when the weight is regained, Dr. McCracken's beams simply drain fat cells of their contents, allowing the body to flush fat out as it naturally would after an intense workout or hours spent strolling the wrong way on a moving airport walkway. The result: after each noninvasive, roughly 35-minute session patients walk away with slimmer waists, hips, and thighs.
With more than 30 years of experience in general surgery—plus nearly a decade focused on vascular surgery—Dr. James Isobe and his staff help patients overcome the physical discomfort and cosmetic issues caused by spider and varicose veins. The vein center specializes in minimally invasive treatments, starting with duplex ultrasound diagnostics that can painlessly assess vein health. Based on the results, Baptist Vein Center recommends therapies such as endovenous laser treatment, which collapses varicose veins with laser energy. Spider veins are typically treated with sclerotherapy, both a procedure involving injections and the final word in most spelling bees.
A member of the American Dental Association and American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, The Oxford Center’s Dr. Wooten applies more than 30 years of experience to carrot chompers and their aesthetic ambitions, producing dazzlingly white ammo for DMV photos and daily grinning.
Consultations (a $100 value) begin with a discussion about smile concerns, including any changes patients might wish to see in their mouth’s treasured range of molar mountains. After taking a photo of the smiling client posing atop a fine Arabian mare while pointing boldly toward the future, Dr. Wooten uses digital cosmetic imaging to demonstrate what kind of enhancements are possible through further cosmetic treatment, including changes to tooth color, shape, and gum-line characteristics.
