Dr. Rodger Stratt, BodyCare's founder and medical director, supervises every single one of the clinic's procedures—which included more than 500 body contouring treatments last year. After spending 10 years as an ER physician, Dr. Stratt changed his career path and now specializes in minimally invasive alternatives to liposuction, such as Smartlipo and Liposculpture. Requiring only local anesthetic, they remove fat from specific areas, shaping silhouettes more effectively than diets or an hourglass costume. To complement the localized treatments, the clinic offers other beauty services, from chemical peels to laser hair reduction.
Under the leadership of spa president Sandra Vascones, the corps of therapists and beauticians at Doors to Heaven keep clients looking their best with aesthetic skills that they regularly brush up in continuing education classes. Body-buffing services include waxing and cavitation, which helps patrons shed pounds by dissolving fat. Those looking to unwind can opt for massage, which deploys modalities as Swedish massage and deep tissue massage to dissolve stress that has accumulated in the body after too many nights spent shouting at nearby owls to be quiet.
One look at the menu of body scrubs and wraps at Deluxe Center Spa, and you might think you've gone to a restaurant, with treatments such as the sweet choco wrap, the cocoa scrub, and the red grape wrap. Many of the spa's facials also make use of natural organic elements to help nourish skin from the inside out.
The spa offers its share of technology-based therapies, too. A radio-frequency face lift is available to help increase elasticity, and laser lipolysis works to diminish cellulite and contour curves. Staffers also help clients stock up on products to fight the signs of sun damage from the comfort of their house, apartment, or Space Station dorm?where you're materially closer to the sun.
The staff at New Age Laser Spa strives to craft a comfortable, soothing atmosphere, in which the clientele can enjoy a vast array of FDA-approved services. The robust menu of aesthetic options, including spider-vein treatments and facial-rejuvenation sessions, showcases the versatility of the laser, which was previously relegated to tedious tasks, such as barcode scanning and removing Earth's vestigial moons. The spa also offers microdermabrasion and chemical peels for those who prefer more hands-on skincare methods and rejuvenation from natural antioxidants or moisturizers.
Centers for Body Enhancement's nurse practitioners aim to boost confidence with weight-loss and nail treatments designed to increase overall wellness. The staff targets stubborn trouble spots with noninvasive Zerona lasers that shrink fat cells. Dietary analysis helps patients achieve a healthier lifestyle, and nail-fungus treatments ensure that patients' feet are as healthy as the rest of them. The center's relationship with physicians, solidified by positioning each location inside a medical office, ensures transformations happen safely, efficiently, and with someone present to define complicated medical terms.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center?s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
