At Berman Cosmetic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Berman trims patients' stubborn fat deposits that have proven impervious to exercise and dieting. Wielding the SmartLipo TriPlex laser lipolysis apparatus, Dr. David Berman sculpts lower abdomens, love handles, back bra lines, necks, and marble busts of Alexander Hamilton with a laser fiber, simultaneously bursting fat cells and kick-starting collagen production. Because the treatment is minimally invasive, patients generally experience very little pain, scarring, bruising, or swelling and can often return to work at the penny-polishing factory the next day. The procedure also gently heats the underside of the skin, helping to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of loose folds. As a result, SmartLipo can improve the look of areas already treated by liposuction or flattened between the pages of War and Peace. Depending on the chosen body area, the procedure can last 30 minutes to two hours.
Though it happened under unfortunate circumstances, Dr. Tara Urschel discovered chiropractic care at a very young age. At 12, Tara sought treatment due to injuries she received as a competitive figure skater. As she rebounded, Tara realized the benefits of chiropractic, and later, after teaching international athletes under the supervision of Olympic medalist Sergei Chetverukhin, she decided she wanted to help others achieve wellness in the same way. While training at New York Chiropractic College, she met her husband, Dr. Michael Urschel. Together, at Ashburn Medical Spa & Wellness Center, they help clients achieve optimal health through chiropractic care, neurological consultations, herbal medicine, and nutrition counseling.
Just because each service at TLC Medispa relies on laser energy, that doesn't mean the center's equipment isn't versatile. That's because the center uses the Palomar StarLux 500 and Cynosure Elite laser systems, a practice which means the staff of certified laser technicians can treat any skin type, and the newer Palomar Vectus for quicker treatments.
During laser hair-removal treatments, techs aim these machines' intense beams of light at hairs to seal off the blood vessels that feed the follicles, thereby permanently preventing regrowth. The technicians also use lasers to clear away wrinkles, scars, acne, pigmentation, and spider veins. Because TLC Medispa's staff includes board-certified doctors, clients can also ascertain whether stethoscopes can detect disloyalty in pets.
Esthetic Laser Clinic's certified laser specialists and licensed master aestheticians bolster clients' outer beauty with laser skin systems, soothing spa treatments, and techniques gleaned over a combined 25 years of skincare experience. Four different laser systems from Candela and Lumenis help tailor treatments to individual bodies, dispersing light beams at custom wavelengths to help tighten skin and banish fuzz from most skin types. In photofacials, the clinic's IPL machine uses quick pulses from a flashbulb to help enhance elasticity and soften wrinkles better than sleeping on a pillow of dryer sheets. More than 10 laser-free facial treatments also elevate façades of all ages with serums that cleanse, hydrate, and oxygenate the skin.
The staff at Laser Plus Lasertrolysis & Skin Care—two registered nurses, seven electrologists, and a team of licensed aestheticians—stays abreast of industry trends through extensive training and continuing education. As the center’s name implies, many of its treatments involve laser-based removal of unwanted hair, veins, and skin imperfections. In addition to those advanced therapies, reflexology applies healing pressure to specific energy zones and mineral make up applications with Jane Iredale and organic Eminence products free up time for other important morning tasks, such as peeling off the sticky residue of one’s nightly cocoon.
Nail ETC II de-scuffs finger-and-toe hardware with a plethora of nail-prettifying services. During the course of one hour, technicians buff toenails and file around the edges, preventing nails from wreaking havoc on your couture bubble-wrap dress. Feet get soaked, sugar scrubbed, smoothed, and covered with a soothing mineral mask. Nail ETC II technicians then cover feet and toes with a hot towel for five to ten minutes. The mask relieves dry skin, aches, and pains, and improves skin elasticity. A custom polish adds a choice of glaze, and in a hot-stone massage with gentle kneading, carefully placed stones soothe feet that are sore from wearing too-tight moon boots.
