When Dalia Galinskiene opened Salon & Spa Dalia, she was fulfilling the dream of a little girl in Lithuania who used to create updos and apply makeup on her friends. Today that dream is realized with help from cutting-edge technology and a professional staff who share Dalia's lifelong passion for helping others look beautiful. Specialty facials soothe and nourish the complexion with Guinot products and may use pure vitamin C to camouflage brown spots or high frequencies to communicate with freckles via Morse code. Beyond body treatments, the spa also offers haircuts for men, women, and children, as well as full-body waxing, nailcare, and lash and brow tinting.:m]]
Board-certified general and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Demetrios Katsaros—who trained at the Cleveland Clinic, the Baylor College of Medicine, and the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center—oversees a team of surgeons, cosmetologists, dieticians, and stylists at ShapeMedUSA. From among their myriad treatments, the mommy makeover restores women's prepregnancy physiques by combining a tummy tuck and liposuction with a breast lift or augmentation. The slate of less-invasive procedures, such as Botox injections and chemical peels, works to subtly enhance beauty and restore youthful hair-twirling habits.
In his own words, surgeon Dr. Wafik Hanna believes firmly that "your face is your calling card." That's why he works with, and not against, his patients' own natural looks. Guided by his philosophy of naturalness, he takes patients' existing bone structure into account when helping them achieve desired complexions and contours. And while many patients opt for surgical services, those preferring non-surgical procedures can opt to rejuvenate their skin with a photofacial, injectables, or thermage, a treatment that tightens the skin. In the 25 years since he opened Hanna Facial Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Hanna has showcased his talents not only in his portfolio, but by sharing his wisdom on the pages of The New York Times.
Dr. Timothy Zelko, a board-certified physician with six years of liposuction-specific experience, oversees the fat-cell-siphoning procedures at ZBodySculpt. After decades as a board-certified physician, Dr. Zelko turned his focus to liposuction—and discovered that despite the huge demand for the slimming procedure, people often avoided it out of fear, discomfort, cost, and allergies to doctors. This realization prompted him to seek out alternative forms of fat reduction, and Dr. Zelko now treats his patients with minimally invasive and noninvasive procedures that require little to no downtime, reduced cost, and local anesthesia for fewer complications.
After sustaining an injury at a previous job, state-licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Frank Frydrych came to the field of chiropractic when he found his prescribed physical therapy didn’t live up to its billing. Rather than continue on an unproductive course, he took charge of his own healing. Today, he applies his findings to help others overcome their own medical issues, often faster than with conventional treatments.
Despite the breadth of healing therapies and procedures at his command, the doctor focuses his skills on the principles of biomechanics. During treatments, he investigates clients' deficiencies and imbalances and corrects them through services such as chiropractic manipulations, pain therapy, and acupuncture. Performed alone or within a multifaceted plan for overall health restoration, the procedures can tackle maladies related to musculoskeletal issues, digestive problems, and sports-related injuries.
If experience were measured in pounds, the laser technicians at Advanced Laser Clinics would be lugging around an aircraft carrier. Across the country, they have performed more than 250,000 treatments, banishing hair, acne, veins, and wrinkles from the body like so many itchy berets. During hair-removal sessions, technicians use the heated energy of the Lumenis LightSheer laser to destroy hair at the root as a built-in ChillTip prevents clients from experiencing excessive discomfort. The LightPulse Skin Renewal system reduces the appearance wrinkles, and other laser treatments work to eliminate surface veins and irritating acne that won't stop singing “MMMBop.” To ensure patients' safety, a medical doctor supervises technicians and oversees procedures such as aluminum-oxide crystal microdermbrasion, which is performed by medical aestheticians armed with skincare products from Cellex-C, Decléor, Dermalogica, Dermablend, and Dr. Brandt.
