Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
A license in cosmetology isn't enough for a stylist to hit the floor at T'nT Concept Salon—they also have to go through the salon's own training program. After that, they have all of the skills necessary to perform the services on the salon's menu, which include haircuts, conditioning treatments, beard trims, extensions, updos, permanent waves, and smoothing keratin treatments. The salon also houses a color bar, where the staff mixes hues for highlights and all-over color treatments and where many Crayola crayons mistakenly go for a drink.
The team at NuDaya MedSpa & Weight Loss Centers uses high-tech means to improve clients' appearances. A collection of lasers erases wrinkles, spider veins, and patches of body hair, and a device called the Lumicell Touch irons out cellulite lumps with mechanized massage. Even the weight-loss plans incorporate modern methods; lipotropic injections and appetite suppressants help patients slim down so that they can fit into their skinny jeans or form-fitting choir robes.
First health, then wellness–that's the goal of the medical professionals at Meridian Family Medical Associates. With its wide range of services—which run the gamut from pediatrics to geriatrics and cosmetic injections to personal injury—Meridian's practitioners first treats illness and discomfort, then guide patients to increased health through its wellness program. They also offer weight-management and nutritional counseling, aiding patients in struggles against unwanted bulk and efforts to preserve their newly slimmed silhouettes through healthy eating habits.
Doctors and nurses at Physicians Weight Loss Centers guide width-whittling in medically supervised weight-loss programs. The programs give clients a jump-start on healthful eating and fitness habits, putting an end to diets composed solely of deep-fried wedding cakes. Diet counselors help clients reinvent their eating habits with the assistance of multivitamins and mineral tablets, which aim to suppress cravings for sugar while boosting metabolism. Vitamin-B12 and Vitamin Cocktail injections seek to increase energy and possible benefits also include strengthened concentration and a more chipper mood.
Some of the more intensive programs include complete doctor's exams, biometrics analyses, lab work, and EKGs. These programs can focus on the reduction of either carbohydrate or fat consumption.
