Piloted by board-certified physician Dr. Ehsan Hadjbian, the Vein Institute of Utah’s welcoming and experienced staff aims to relieve restless, painful, and cramping legs from the constraints of varicose and spider veins. During sclerotherapy treatments, Dr. Hadjbian will inject unsightly blood tunnels with medicine using a delicate needle. Over the course of 2–5 months, the vessel’s lining will dry out and break down, allowing the body to re-absorb it into the same black hole that sucks in stray thoughts and undigested Twizzlers. As blood is redirected to healthier veins, legs can experience improved circulation and a clearer skin canvas. For some spider veins, Dr. Hadjbian may use a Veinlite device to transilluminate the skin, helping locate superficial feeder veins and long-faded Charlotte's Web tattoos.
The technicians at The Body Sculpt Xpress dedicate themselves exclusively to ultrasound-cavitation body sculpting, a noninvasive technique already popular in Europe and Australia. They customize treatments based on the thickness of fat and its distribution throughout the body. To accommodate clients’ schedules, the technicians offer appointments both in the office and at home with their mobile contouring machine transported on a parade float with a marching band.
The doctors at Natural Health and Wellness dispense chiropractic techniques to help alleviate their clients' achy necks, backs, and limbs. A team of on-staff licensed massage therapist joins the fight against pain during sessions with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities. The experts also outfit feet with custom orthotics and dunk bare flippers in detox baths that pull toxins and old homework papers from the body.
Envision Cosmetic’s surgeon Dr. Dunkley and his friendly staff carefully tailor each of their surgical and nonsurgical procedures to best fit each body's beautifying needs. The laser hair-removal treatment targets unwanted body hair safely and effectively with the Alexandrite laser, which, over the course of six treatments, gradually zaps hair at the follicle until the skin feels as smooth as a cue ball engraved with can't-miss pickup lines. Since hair tends to grow in cycles that depend on when follicles are active, multiple treatments are required to see longer-term results, and results may vary from client to client.
Millcreek Chiropractic brings bodywork bliss to bone bags rattled by aches and pains from botched shark-jumping attempts. During the chiropractic exam ($85), the doctor will review your medical history and you'll undergo basic testing of orthopedics, muscles, and reflexes. Then you'll receive a 45-minute massage ($45) from Millcreek Chiropractic's licensed massage therapist. Tissue toxins will be tossed out, circulation will be jump-started, and flexi-mobility will be restored.
A teacher overwhelmed with classroom tasks and student responsibilities; a 20-something recovering from the insecurities of teenage acne—Charlie Ward has served them both. Like many who write in his patient testimonials, this pair praises the master aesthetician's professional skill and personal kindness. "Having healthy habits, including good skincare," Charlie writes on his website, "[has] helped me enjoy [life] even more." Charlie pebbles his path to healthier, more vibrant skin with services that range from the technologically advanced photofacial treatment, which uses intense pulsed light to improve sun-damaged skin, to the holistic scrub-and-rub massages, which dose backs and bodies with salt crystals from the Great Salt Lake before hot towels and lotions cleanse and refresh. He also stays up-to-date on his industry's latest trends and technologies, writing on his blog about some of the latent effects of tattoos and new breakthroughs in heat-resistant makeup that prove ideal for soldiers fighting in war zones or chefs cooking in full-body snowsuits.
