Therapists, counselors, and social workers all play a role at Medcare Medical Group. The practice helps rehabilitate adults and children affected by disabilities or injuries. But people also go to Medcare Medical Group not simply to get well, but to stay well, which often means assuaging stress and boosting energy. Light therapy bathes patients in mood-elevating photons, laser treatments get at deep-seated chronic pain, and massage helps muscles stay comfortably springy.
Under the direction of Dr. Thomas Heggen, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., cosmetic surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Ob-Gyn, the veteran staff at Your Medicos specializes in plastic surgery, med-spa treatments, and family medicine infused with holistic healing techniques. Medical experts stage extreme makeovers and help bodies fit back into their high-school footie pajamas with liposuction or face-lifts and use noninvasive laser treatments with FDA-approved tools to expel unwanted body hair and tighten skin. Physician-grade skincare products from Glytone rejuvenate countenances and European ultrasound-cavitation technology slenderizes bodies. Your Medicos' technicians also draw upon chiropractic services, Eastern-inspired acupuncture, and herbal medicine to bolster the traditional Western healing technique of wrapping patients in the U.S. flag and singing the national anthem until they feel better.
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.
A waiting area like a fine parlor?complete with soft leather furniture, honey-hued hardwood floors, and a vase of flowers perched atop a coffee table?welcomes guests into the specialized laser spa. During Laser l'Amour's signature hair-removal treatments, technicians wield Palomar StarLux lasers to free skin of unwanted fuzz with minimal discomfort and no downtime. Clients strut from treatment rooms after gaining a boost in confidence for beach season or an aerodynamic advantage for human-cannonball-school-admissions season. The staff also administer laser-free microdermabrasions and peels designed to leave skin softer, smoother, and scarless.
As a physician with board certification in emergency and bariatric medicine as well as more than 30 years of professional experience, Dr. Manohar Jethani provides family care as well as basic urgent care at Health Stop. The center's diagnostic arsenal includes x-ray systems, EKGs, and laboratory blood-testing equipment capable of screening for everything from infection to cancer. In addition, Health Stop can treat common cosmetic issues by offering numerous anti-aging and weight-loss procedures. Injectable dermal fillers smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, a cosmetic laser system erases acne scarring, and body-contouring treatments provide an alternative to invasive liposuction procedures.
Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group is a professionally packed team of well-being warriors including experienced estheticians and physicians on the medical staff at Northwestern Memorial Hospital as well as faculty at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Seven different physicians collaborate with two clinical estheticians to create dullness-quashing skin regimes. The 30-minute, physician-supervised treatment begins with a Clarisonic cleanse, which uses sonic frequency to eliminate surface dirt and oil to prep for better product absorption. Next, your esthetician will match you with a topical treatment serum selected from an arsenal of cosmetic crime-fighting agents that address a variety of skin concerns, including oiliness, dryness, and redness. The SilkPeel system employs a mug-snuggling closed-loop vacuum to infuse the face with serum benefits, evening tone and texture without the use of crystals, other abrasive particles, or driveway gravel. Each complexion-perfecting session ends with a calming treatment mask, moisturizer, and sunscreen, leaving patients with light-reflective skin that sends damaging rays bouncing away in shame.
