At Curves, exercisers of all fitness levels move around a circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine-maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks, filling medicine balls with medicine, and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines account for different body weights and fitness levels to create resistance that matches one's abilities, which thereby decreases the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Vein Center of Charlotte's Dr. James Altizer lays claim to a stout resume of medical accomplishments, with decades of professional medical experience, service in the first Gulf War as a naval medical officer, and the successful completion of more than 1,200 endovenous catheter treatments for varicose veins. As a registered vascular technologist, the doctor employs a sophisticated arsenal of equipment and procedures to diagnose and treat patients. Foam sclerotherapy treatments dissipate small spider veins from the inside, and ultrasound techniques lay out a hyper-accurate map of deeper veins and gold deposits. In addition to removing unsightly hyperpigmentation from blood vessels, Vein Center of Charlotte applies its high-tech philosophy to a wide range of aesthetic procedures including skin-smoothing laser hair removal.
Under the leadership of founder Christie Shumate, the licensed aestheticians at Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center perform custom skin treatments with detailed analysis. Shumate was inspired to form Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center after paying a visit to a plastic surgeon who, she discovered, donated his summer months to helping those who couldn't otherwise afford treatment to recover from burns, as well as working with children who were born with facial defects. She brought together a collection of less-risky aesthetic services designed to help her clients look and feel good about themselves, and now her staff offers laser cellulite reduction, custom facials, organic chemical peels, ear candling, and aqua foot detox.
