Under the careful supervision of Dr. Quan Nguyen, BioDerm Skin Care and Laser Center's licensed medical professionals perform a slew of noninvasive cosmetic services. Using IPL laser energy, they eliminate patient's unwanted hair, spider veins, and tattoos, or help them diminish the urge to smoke by directing laser beams at trigger areas, such as ears, faces, hands, or kitten tattoos. Though specializing in laser therapy, they extend their aesthetic reach into the anti-aging cookie jar, performing microdermabrasions and Botox and Restylane injections, along with proffering an array of skincare products, including BioDerm and Obagi.
The Jenny Craig Program provides people with nutritious, heart-healthy foods, a personal consultant, and a plan specially tailored to helping them attain their desired weight. Clients meet with a Jenny Craig consultant to assess their current eating habits and to create a scheme for shedding superfluous pounds. Then, the week-one planned menu unfolds like a paper airplane made of phyllo dough (items in blue are included in the plan, and orange items are recommended additions). A sample day starts with the Breakfast Scramble, a mound of scrambled egg whites and turkey ham topped with melty low-fat mozzarella and served over diced red potatoes. Lunch is beef chow mein, which is packed with vegetables (broccoli, carrots, bell peppers, and rooglebetas) and remains unpacked with calories (it has only 220). Dinner brings the comfort of macaroni and cheese and tops it off with a cookie for dessert.
The beauty experts at Premier Med Spa help people look younger and get healthier with the latest technology and products. A licensed medical aesthetician targets signs of aging on the face with the innovative HydraFacial machine. The device's spiral design creates a vortex effect as it exfoliates the skin, removing impurities while simultaneously infusing moisturizing antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. To help diminish sun damage and fine lines, the staff employs Circadia's SWiCH treatment, a leave-on alternative to a chemical peel that encourages cells to repair themselves without tissue damage or audio self-help books.
In addition to aesthetic services—such as laser hair reduction and restoration, teeth whitening, and dermal fillers—the team designs weight-loss programs around each client's lifestyle. The staff teaches people to cook low-calorie dishes or supplies them with fresh, ready-to-eat meals, and clients can enhance their results with energy-boosting B12 injections.

Led by owner Kimberly Thompson, an entrepreneur, mother, writer, and former model, the clinical staff at Shangri-la Medispa helps busy clients to look and feel their best. A physician tends to both their inner and outer needs by administering cosmetic fillers and overseeing the weight-management program. An experienced medical aesthetician fine-tunes appearances with laser and microcurrent treatments, chemical peels, and waxing. The medispa has also developed its own product line, Shangri-La Skin By Kim. The team also includes a registered nurse who can advise patients on their treatment options or answer any questions, from “how much downtime is required?” to “is the human appendix an extraterrestrial tracking device?”
The crew performs services in whimsically themed treatment rooms filled with shabby-chic tables and dressers. Clients can relax in spaces decorated with such touches as a colorful London sign and lamps that resemble the Eiffel Tower and an antique streetlamp. In the black-and-white facial room, a picture of Marilyn Monroe glamorously oversees skincare treatments.
The expert staff of body-beautifiers at Lakewood Weight Loss & Wellness help resculpt clients' bodies with fat-busting and aesthetically enhancing services. Patients who already sport stomach-shrinking Lap-Bands can opt for an adjustment, closing or opening tummies to regulate weight loss more effectively than antique methods such as wearing a corset or training a monkey to bear hug your midsection. Dysport injections quickly banish lines from the face by paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles. The treatment is effective in alleviating crows'-feet, smile lines, and brows furrowed by years pondering what would happen if you wore moon shoes on the moon.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
