A triple board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Footerman draws from more than 20 years of medical experience to steer patients toward healthier lifestyles. Because Dr. Footerman believes that obesity causes many modern health problems, he's concocted comprehensive weight-loss programs that help patients shed pounds while improving their overall well-being. During an initial consultation, a body-composition analysis measures how much of the body's mass is composed of fat, muscle, and fruit roll-up. Bearing in mind the patient's medical history and weight-loss goals, the doctor tailors a customized program based on eating real foods and cultivating healthy habits. As a supplement to lifestyle changes, periodic injections of vitamin B-12 simultaneously increase metabolism and deplete the doctor's reservoir of Scooby Doo band-aids. Patients can shed up to 28 pounds in one month, and weekly weigh-ins monitor their progress.

Helmed by certified physician Richard Parfitt, AestheticA Skin Health Center staffs a squad of experienced medical professionals all skilled at the art of hair eradication using the concentrated heat of a high-power Intense Pulsed Light laser. IPL is known to reduce hair in a virtually pain-free procedure that some have said is less painful than waxing or whittling with a dull stick. The included initial consultation (a $30 value) takes about 30 minutes, with the procedure itself lasting roughly 15 to 30 minutes per session. AestheticA's experienced, licensed staff will do its best to make customers feel comfortable in a relaxing spa-like environment. Laser therapy can ensure a relentlessly smooth surface that won't compromise times at the human-dolphin relay leg of the upcoming swim meet.
Dr. Shannon Watley, a board-certified OB/GYN, believes that physicians need to act more like teachers?not just healers?and educate their patients about living healthy so they can prevent larger health problems down the line. So she founded Watley Medspa & Wellness Center Ltd. to provide individuals with wellness information tailored to them. There, she teaches clients how eating nutritious whole foods is even more important than exercising or heading to the moon when it comes to losing weight and that bodies need proper rest and hydration.
Once they make sure clients feel great with wellness services and massages, Dr. Watley and her staff help them look great, too, with such treatments as skin-nourishing HydraFacials, body-contouring i-Lipo, and wrinkle-softening cosmetic injections.
