Dr. Will Cole, DC, senior clinic director, believes in finding the underlying issues of poor health instead of just treating the symptoms. He uses a variety of techniques including customized diets and nutritional supplements designed to help clients return to full health.
Dr. Will and his staff at Laser Body of Pittsburgh understand the difficulty of ridding the body of stubborn inches. They've helped more than 1,000 patients slim down, reducing excess belly fat, whittling away love handles, and shrinking forearms bulged by years of spinach eating. Both of the office's two laser systems, the Zerona device and the Lapex BCS laser, target fat cells to disrupt their membranes and cause them to shrink, which results in lost inches and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
Trendz the salon spa owner Alana Ficco holds licensing in nail care, skincare, management, and teaching, all of which qualifies her to lead a team of beauty professionals who groom nails, knead out tension, and cleanse skin.
