Kondas Dental Group aims to stop cavities and other oral maladies dead in their tracks using future-grade equipment. With more than 25 years of experience, Dr. Christopher Kondas heads off cavities, oral cancers, and silver tongues using advanced laser detection and x-rays. He then consults with patients to devise a treatment plan?a step he also takes when straightening teeth with Invisalign clear braces. And for the dentally squeamish, the team of hygienists see to patients' comfort with blankets and optional nitrous oxide sedation.
The diverse team of medical professionals, massage therapists, and aestheticians at Ageless Beauty M.D. helps limit the ill effects Father Time has on bodies. They use DermaSweep microdermabrasion technology, skin rejuvenation treatments, and Botox injections to smooth out wrinkles and erase dark spots. TruSculpt body contouring treatments rely on ultrasonic energy to reduce fat and slim down physiques without requiring downtime. Aches and pains fade into a distant memory after massage sessions, which are available in an array of modalities such as reflexology, Swedish, deep tissue, and aromatherapy. The team also specializes in permanent makeup.
Overseen by Dr. Jennifer Cova, the nurses at The Complete Women's Practice apply specialized knowledge of the female body to protect and promote its health. Dr. Cova administers ob-gyn care and surgical services, approaching each patient as an individual, rather than as a number or Scrabble tile. Staff members supplement health care with cosmetic services, including laser treatments for skin rejuvenation or hair removal, facial treatments, and Botox and dermal fillers. Warm, modern treatment rooms in the spa-like office contain 27-inch computer screens that showcase treatment options and educational videos.
Dr. Torres oversees noninvasive FDA-approved Zerona laser body-sculpting treatments within the serene confines of their elegantly decorated office. After discussing basic medical histories, treatment goals, and the most efficient way to eat a peanut-butter cup, doctors invite patients to repose upon earth-toned spa beds for the first of six 40-minute treatments. The low-level Zerona laser emulsifies subcutaneous fat, allowing it to slip through cell walls like a secret agent through a banana-peeling factory. Patients read, make phone calls, or simply relax as the laser targets trouble zones on the hips, the thighs, the waist, or the arms. The treatment does not require any downtime, though best results are achieved when all six sessions are completed within two weeks.
Amy Tobias and Cathy Murray, aestheticians and co-owners of Transforming Techniques Salon and Medical Spa, each bring 17 years of beauty-biz experience to their treatment chairs. They and their team lavish complexions with a wide range of skin services, from antibacterial and oxygen facials to slightly more intensive chemical peels and wrinkle-fighting injections. Stylists tend to men's, women's, and kids' locks, keeping ends fresh and hairdos manageable, and techs groom both natural and artificial nails. Massage therapists knead stress from tense muscles, and depilation experts use wax to whisk unwanted body hair away from faces, legs, and plates of nachos.
Together with his seasoned staff, Dr. Ronald Bush combats villainous veins with state-of-the-art techniques and equipment. A thorough evaluation using a special light, ultrasound, or truth serum helps determine the source of the spidery tributaries and their appropriate treatment. While laser sessions subdue unruly vessels, sclerotherapy injects venous henchmen with a solution that prevents blood flow through the vein over time. Some treatments may also incorporate VeinGogh, which generates heat beneath the skin with a super-thin probe, forcing vessel walls to paint moody postimpressionistic landscapes until their eventual collapse. Side effects are rare but possible and include temporary skin pigmentation changes posttreatment.
