Indy Laser Lipo takes over for failed diet and exercise attempts by shrinking fat cells with lasers. Technicians apply two LipoLaser paddles directly to problem areas⎯including the sides, chin, arms, or thighs⎯allowing the noninvasive lasers to penetrate down to fat cells, where they break the cells’ membranes and cause them to release their contents into the body and shrink. After undergoing treatments three times a week for six weeks, clients may expect to lose several inches from the targeted areas, giving them the confidence to show off their swimsuit-ready body and fit into their old high-school locker.
Puptown’s canine coddlers offer boarding and washing services for floppy-eared family members seven days a week. At the East 96th Street location's dog wash, pet owners can de-grime dirty coats and bring back a signature “new dog” scent. Canines enter large, stainless-steel tubs via a dog-friendly ramp or grasshopper-like leap, with owners using convenient spray nozzles to wash away remnants of crashed pizza parties. Puptown supplies dog-washing necessities including shampoo and conditioner, towels, and a jowl-flopping dryer. For an additional $5, guests can upgrade to the deluxe wash and use the facility's de-shedding solutions, ear wash, and toothbrushes and paste.
