Although her training qualifies her to perform life-saving surgeries, Dr. Joanna DeLeo knows that, for many clients, the most valuable treatments are the ones that address longstanding aesthetic issues. With increased self-esteem in mind, she now harnesses the power of cosmetic procedures to match clients’ outer appearances to their inner spirits. Each day, she and her staff help remove acne with Isolaz treatments, plump away facial blemishes with Botox injections, and lift sagging skin with Ultherapy. For areas below the neck, they employ their multipurpose MedLite C Series laser to blast away unwanted hair, tattoos, or pigmentation.
Led by a pair of board-certified vein experts, Calcagno and Rossi Vein Treatment Center clears unsightly vascular blemishes with state-of-the-art technology. Using sclerothotherapy––a safe, foam-based medical injection––the team terraforms unsightly networks of unused and unwanted skin spindles into smooth, blemish-free dermascapes. Upon injection, the foam solution shrinks the enlarged veins, causing them to disappear as blood is rerouted into healthier nearby veins, which boast higher property values and lower crime rates. In certain cases, veins may become temporarily inflamed immediately following the treatment, though swelling should subside as they are absorbed by the body over time.
Total Health's owner, Cheryl Hawkins—a holistic health consultant—coaches her clients on the intake of nutritional supplements and alternative treatments to springboard toward improved states of mental and physical health. A certified natural-health consultant, Cheryl sits down with each patient to help chart a course of therapeutic action per client request. Some opt to purge toxins and melt stress in a sweat-inducing session in the infrared sauna; others reach toward the healthier digestion and improved intake of nutrients that follow on the heels of colon-hydrotherapy treatments, which Cheryl has administered for more than 15 years.

“My back is killing me!” Steve Corson regularly heard complaints like this while working in the restaurant biz. The desire to quell backaches and workplace stress is what eventually drove him to become a licensed massage therapist. He set up shop in Full Throttle Ink tattoo parlor, where he dissolves tension with long, gliding Swedish strokes and concentrated deep-tissue kneads. Steve also tends to sports-related injuries, and he tackles painful knots built up over time or after pro games of Twister using trigger-point therapy.
Using nourishing minerals and herbs, mud, seaweed, and dead sea salt, the beauty experts at Cooper Spa pamper clients with time-tested, natural ingredients; but they’ll also turn to advanced technology when they need to, gently sloughing off dead skin with microdermabrasion tools, swiping glycolic acid onto faces to fade blemishes, and directing microcurrents into skin to firm muscles. Many treatments already include add-ons: hot-stone massages are enhanced with hand exfoliations, eye treatments, and foot soaks complete with rubber duckies, and aromatherapy enhances Swedish kneads and body wraps.
Helmed by Dr. Nikhilesh Agarwal, The Vein Center of Pennsylvania treats spidery blood-carriers with vein-withering sclerotherapy. The 25-minute visits start with a comprehensive exam to determine whether problematic veins are spider, varicose, or coolant tubes from half-finished cyborg transformations. A battery of sclerotherapy injections tests which chemicals are the safest for fighting veins, before Dr. Agarwal injects the winning solution into doomed veins, causing them to collapse and disappear. Treatments require little to no downtime, allowing patients to quickly return to busy work schedules or constant backyard stakeouts to catch Amelia Earhart stealing the lawn flamingos. This is an introductory offer, complete treatment may require 4 to 6 additional sessions.
