For 30 years, the home-improvement contractors at Columbia Exteriors have been installing quality windows, doors, roofing, and siding that beautify homes and bolster energy efficiency. The airtight, insulated chambers of new windows trap in escaping heat, and shingled roofing materials keep out the elements. Technicians can also robe exteriors in soffit siding or fascia roof coverings that help prevent damage by covering any gaps that could collect water.

The medical team at Ageless Center enhances beauty with custom weight-loss programs and cutting-edge technology. They draw from 60 years of combined experience to help clients shed pounds with six different medically supervised weight-loss programs.

The center has tracked down the latest laser systems to provide skincare treatments with less downtime and discomfort. Palomar-certified registered nurses remove hair with the Icon's diode lasers, vacuum-assisted technology, and a large handpiece that cuts treatment time by more than half, all without the need for topical anesthetics. The crew uses the Lux1540 laser to reduce wrinkles without affecting skin's surface, and employs intense pulsed light to diminish sun damage, spider veins, and acne. To complement the benefits of a weight-loss program, medical staffers can reshape areas of stubborn fat with the radio-frequency energy of the noninvasive CoolSculpting system.
