The Body Bar is an ideal place for a body makeover, thanks to amenities that tend to one’s fitness, beauty, and relaxation needs. The gym floor is home to ellipticals, treadmills, Cybex weight-training machines, and rubber-coated dumbbells, as well as fitness studios where instructors teach yoga, Zumba, and a cardio-circuit workout. A trio of tanning beds adds bronzy definition to newly acquired muscles, while waxing services make skin smooth. To top it off, The Body Bar’s team of massage therapists dwell inside of 10 private massage rooms, performing Swedish, aromatherapy, and hot-stone massages that relieve sore muscles and boost circulation, an especially important benefit for those who have just worked out or those who need to get an A on their upcoming blood test.
At Enhancing Light Cosmetic Laser Centers, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Dembny oversees a team of fully certified staffers who beautify physiques with laser-guided services. Using VelaShape, an FDA-approved procedure that fuses infrared light, bipolar radio frequencies, and mechanical massage, technicians can contour away cellulite. Photofacial skin rejuvenation, meanwhile, resurrects a youthful glow in faces marked by signs of aging, such as fine lines, sun spots, and mouths locked in place after blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Tattoo removal lifts unwanted ink, microdermabrasion exfoliates away dead skin, and skin tightening reduces wrinkles and saggy areas. A portion of the clinic’s profits go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which funds breast-cancer research and raises awareness of the disease.
Using advanced Chromogenex i-Lipo lasers—which have been praised by The Doctors—the technicians at New Beginnings Body Sculpting reduce both fat and inches from clients’ forms. Four pads outfitted with a total of 32 low-level lasers are placed along sites of concern, such as thighs, upper arms, or water wings, where they spend the next 40 minutes prompting fat cells to release their impurities and triglycerides. The cell waste is then absorbed and burned off by the muscles. The office’s i-Lipo Ultra goes one step further to create firmer physiques: the device’s built-in vacuum and infrared laser help smooth out cellulite and boost collagen production.
Using ophthalmological powers earned during prestigious studies at Case Western Reserve Medical Center and fellowships at Cornell and Tulane universities, Luna Vision and Laser Med-Spa's Dr. Rinku Dutt restores vision with high-tech LASIK procedures and ensures long-term ocular health with eye exams. With more than 7,000 LASIK surgeries under her belt, Dr. Dutt deftly executes bladeless procedures that help clients correct blurred vision or activate the ability to see into the infrared spectrum without glasses or contacts.
In addition to sharpening her patients' eyesight, Dr. Dutt also tends to their facial and bodily imperfections with 15 years of experience in beauty treatments. She beautifies faces with Botox or Juvéderm applications, which safely smooth away nearby fine lines and wrinkles. With lasers calibrated to destroy hair follicles without damaging the skin, she clears away unwanted hair from virtually any area of the body during laser hair-removal sessions. Blepharoplasty treatments use a CO2 laser to remove fat and excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids.
Acne holds the top spot on the facial hit list for the aestheticians at Clearskin Acne and Skincare Solutions, where an advanced acne-clearing program draws upon the research of respected acne expert Dr. James Fulton to rid faces of blemishes. During the program, aestheticians check in on acne spots every 2–4 weeks, slathering pores with the studio’s own line of client-tailored products or with medical-grade serums from Vivant and PCA Skincare. These regular visits, coupled with advice for at-home regimens, can help rid pores of blemishes, blackheads, and whack-a-moles in as little as 3 months. Though specializing in clearing acne, the beauty crew also treats visages to anti-aging facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and relaxing European facial massages.
