Inside The Physical Fitness Center, students face off against their doppelgängers, keeping tabs on their form in the wall-length mirrors that run to the ceiling from the hardwood flooring. A staff of fitness experts that includes certified yoga, Zumba, and Pilates instructors leads participants through classes that build cardiovascular health and build muscles. During Zumba classes, students move to the beat of lively international dance rhythms and the soulful sounds of an on-staff yodeler. Elsewhere, yoga students perfect their warrior poses while infusing muscles with an invigorating dose of oxygen during controlled breathing exercises. Two Pilates classes trot out options for guests who want to focus on form in pared-down mat classes, or students can work through a combination of yoga and ballet moves with the help of hand weights in Barre sessions.
Look Your Best's age-vanquishing team of board-certified physicians and nurses aim to whittle down wrinkles with FDA-approved Botox injections. A physician or nurse begins by examining facial fields to suss out each crease and determine a plan of attack. In a brief 30- to 45-minute session, the smoothing serum is injected directly into the facial muscles that are responsible for frown lines, laugh lines, and pug-impersonation lines, preventing their contraction. Newly liberated lines soften over the following three–five days, leaving a smoother appearance for up to four months.
Dr. Kevin Tehrani's vast knowledge of plastic surgery keeps him in demand––he's a published author, an international speaker, an assistant clinical professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a go-to source for publications such as New Beauty magazine. But all this activity doesn't keep him from his patients. He typically spends an hour with them during their initial consultations, answering their questions, reviewing images of them on a computer, and projecting what they'd look like if they were made of pixels. Sometimes these consultations lead to cosmetic surgery, and sometimes Dr. Tehrani and his patients instead turn to such non-invasive aesthetic equipment as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. Ever the innovator, Dr. Tehrani launched an iPhone app called iLipo, which helps patients to alter their image on the spot to see how a given treatment will transform their body.
Long Island Laser Hair Therapy, a member of the HairLoss.com Association, stimulates hair regrowth for men and women with laser therapy alongside DHT-blocking supplements that sustain post-treatment growth.

The treatment can pump up hair volume by 25 percent and foster thicker, fuller hair for hair transplant clients and shedding Koosh balls.
