At 5th Avenue Beauty, aestheticians glitz up nails with shimmering polish, stylists accentuate hairstyles with highlights, and massage therapists soothe aches with calming massages. Waxing and tanning services prep clients for beachside vacations, and spa packages combine an array of pampering treatments.
Inside Bright Medical & Aesthetic Clinic, board-certified physician Khaled Osman calls on years of medical training to keep skin looking young and healthy. A variety of chemical peels and facials slough off dull layers of dead skin, revealing a fresh, new layer, much like resurfacing a home's floor to reveal its original Twister board. Additionally, Dr. Osman harnesses laser technology to remove unwanted body hair and irons out facial wrinkles with tailored injections of Botox. Bodies benefit from cellulite-banishing treatments and a range of muscle-melting massages.
At Aguilar Chiropractic, patients get treated to a one-man show. Dr. David Aguilar plays multiple roles in his office—receptionist, assistant, and, of course, chiropractor—and does it so seamlessly they rarely notice he wears the same shoes for all three. Clients can count on little to no time in the waiting room, and are able to make post-appointment plans without worrying they might be late. They also get time from a doctor who's personable and composed. Having been a chiropractic patient himself when he was suffering from migraine headaches, Dr. Aguilar knows how to help his clients reach their own wellness goals.
A multispecialty medical clinic, Bay Parkway Physicians makes health care convenient by offering pediatrics, internal medicine, physical rehabilitation, and cosmetic medicine all at the same facility. The practice operates like a private doctor’s office with a primary-care provider, but thanks to the large staff, can accommodate appointments on demand. For added convenience, the doctors use Facebook to keep their patients abreast of the latest procedures and the funniest surgical GIFs.
Dr. Kanumilli is a board-certified family doctor, but her certification in medical acupuncture and knowledge of aesthetic services allows her to sprinkle her practice with unique specialties. In addition to general internal medicine, she guides patients through weight-loss programs and prescribes medicine to ease narcotics withdrawal. She also wields lasers to jettison acne and stubborn curves, and inserts acupuncture needles into skin or overly tense pin cushions to relieve chronic pain.
The team at Advanced Physical Therapy uses drug-free techniques to assuage aches, strengthen muscles, and rehabilitate injuries. Their back-care program helps patients return to a normal routine after an accident or a limbo tournament, while an athletic-conditioning regimen facilitates training to optimize fitness and endurance. Staff members also utilize their extensive anatomy and physiology expertise during massages, which can tame stiff joints, relieve tension, and inspire a deep-seated sense of calm.
