Where did the two physicians at The Sheen Vein Institute get their credentials? On sale at Credential Barn? No... even better:
Dr. Vidal Sheen
Dr. Kae Chang
The licensed nurses, laser technicians, and aestheticians at Metropolitan Cosmetic Laser Center are certainly skilled on their own, but they still work with a safety net in the form of the physician who owns the practice. Together, they administer laser-based procedures, including skin rejuvenation and vein, hair, and tattoo removal. They also perform Restylane and Dysport injections that help soften facial wrinkles, leaving skin smoother than a newborn beach ball.
Joan Krueger—a certified hypnotherapist who has been practicing since 1994—has her own metaphor to describe the subconscious mind: she likens it to a filing cabinet filled with the programs that help you function. She believes the key is to rewrite the programs, changing the information so we can function in different ways.
At Joan Krueger Hypnosis, she helps to change habits such as smoking cigarettes overeating, or biting your fingernails. She does this by bringing clients into a relaxed state during which their subconscious mind becomes receptive to suggestions. She then delivers the suggestion that will enable you to create the changes you desire. Krueger claims a high success rate: according to her website, 80% of clients are able to quit smoking after just one visit.
Oasis Spa at Spinal Care of St. Louis's Doctor of Chiropractic Nathan Heimgartner oversees a wide range of therapeutic services in finding a balance between extensive chiropractic know-how and holistic health. In the center's private treatment rooms, which eschew clinical starkness in favor of soft lighting and calming pastel colors, Dr. Heimgartner uses thorough chiropractic exams, massages, LipoLaser sessions, nutrition counseling, and movies about baby hedgehogs to bolster feelings of wellness. The resident team of licensed massage therapists eases muscle tension with a bevy of relaxing modalities, aiding Dr. Heimgartner in his quest to rid bodies of back pain, sports injuries, whiplash, and other ailments.
Since 1990, So Natural Institute has been embellishing eyebrows, lips, and peepers with permanent makeup, thickening eye fringe with Xtreme lash extensions, and misting on airbrush makeup. The salon?s certified permanent-cosmetics professionals amplify lids with indelible eyeliner, ruby-ify lips, and restore brows that have vanished after years of tweezing or hair-singeing experiments with baking soda and vinegar. The expertly applied enhancements, which take about an hour to apply, render lipstick and eyeliner as obsolete as an Esperanto-speaking lamplighter and last for years, with minimal touchups sometimes required after a few years.
Hair-removing lasers and dermal fillers populate the list of cosmetic services offered at Clayton Med Spa. The center's skilled technicians and aestheticians bid dullness adieu with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, skin-rejuvenating photofacials, and other treatments that target the face and body. Those hoping to correct sagging skin sans surgery can receive noninvasive skin-tightening treatments, which use infrared light, magnetic pulses, and bipolar radio frequencies to stimulate collagen production. Injectables such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Restylane help fill in fine lines caused by aging or falling asleep atop a subway grate.
