Decorated with fancy mirrors, pink flowers, and scads of crystalline chandeliers, Bella Cache' looks nothing like a doctor's office. But the glitzy environment holds fully credentialed medical staff, including a physician, nurse practitioner, therapist, and registered nurse in addition to licensed cosmetologists. The diversity of talent lets Bella Cache' offer weight-loss, nutrition, and counseling services alongside eyelash extensions and body wraps.
Dr. Wanda Minnis-Dyson opened her own practice in 1999 with a single specialty in internal medicine. Soon, however, she built on her expertise to include weight-loss medicine, which turned out to be a fateful choice for the focus of her practice. With that, plus the addition of mesotherapy and aesthetics in 2004, what was once a small medical practice morphed into Change for Life Wellness and Aesthetic Center. Today, she and her staff revamp bodies by shepherding clients through weight-loss programs, rejuvenating skin with dermal fillers, and brightening faces with a kissing booth run by two halogen bulbs. Dr. Dyson spends her time away from the office partaking in medical conferences, speaking on medical panels, and bettering the community at myriad outreach events.
Madame et Monsieur's non-invasive, FDA-approved ElectroSlim technology helps clients get buff. Electrodes attached to the target area deliver electronic pulses that stimulate more than 1,000 muscle contractions in a single one-hour session. The soothing procedure feels like a deep-tissue massage, but delivers the muscle-building results of a serious sweat session. ElectroSlim can tone specific areas that normal exercise doesn't reach as well as burning away excess amounts of fat, redefining the client's overall body shape.
The technicians at Bethesda Bodyworks Incorporated use noninvasive red-light therapy to target fat deposits and tone lax skin on the belly, love handles, hips, and thighs. The crimson beams emitted by the clinic's Advanced Photonics Red Light Modulator carry with them none of the risks of invasive surgery or full-contact rugby and require no downtime. When paired with a healthy diet, active lifestyle, and doctor-supervised health plan, these treatments may help clients shed inches and become more confident.

Pro Tip: Be serious about your weight loss.
Your program will be tailored by our doctor specific to you.
Losing weight often requires more than exercise and eating right. For many people, diet and exercise aren't enough to overcome the behavioral, hormonal, and metabolic obstacles that lead to weight gain. Medical weight loss can help facilitate long-term results by identifying and treating the root causes of weight gain, such as a slower metabolism or excessive food cravings, through natural and prescription methods.
Dr. Jeffrey B. Brown, the head of Affinity Health Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Center, creates custom weight-loss plans with his team of experts that counteract these root causes. Composed of three steps—active weight loss, a transitional phase that incorporates regular exercise, and maintenance—the multi-tiered plans typically last a calendar year, and include ongoing one-on-one meetings with a physician that help clients stay motivated and keep the weight off.
