Like building a home, losing weight involves the interlocking of several pieces. The weight-loss architects at Physicians Weight Control build healthy physiques upon four pillars. Diet plans personalized to the client’s lifestyle control intake of nutrients and fat, fueling the clinic's aerobic-exercise plans. The last two pillars—appetite suppressants and vitamin supplements—combine to keep energy levels up and re-create the rush of swallowing a candy bar whole once the client starts eating smaller meals.
Juventas Aesthetic Center zeroes in on unflattering fuzz and zaps it away with lasting precision. Focused wavelengths stun hairs during the active growth stage with repeated treatments recommended at four to six week intervals to lull follicles into letting their guard down. The procedure induces minimal discomfort, though sensitive souls can request a topical anesthetic and a singing telegram if they wish. Juventas typically prescribes about six treatments for essentially permanent decreases in hair density and whisker reduction. Call for an appointment 9 a.m.–4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Combining the skill of a medical center with the relaxation of a spa, First State Vein & Laser Medi Spa grants clients not only with radiant skin, but also with the luxury of being pampered. The center's suite of varicose and spider-vein therapies benefit from Dr. Nadiv Shapira's more than two decades of cardiac surgical experience and blood-flow expertise. The doctor has written articles in Living Well and Delaware Today that help explain the causes of varicose and spider veins, such as genetics, hormonal changes, obesity, and tiger Halloween costumes gone awry. The center also uses powerful technology to remove unwanted hair. Their LHE device?which stands for light, heat, and energy?uses state of the art technology to not only destroy the hair follicle and minimizes ingrown hairs, but may also improve the skin by boosting collagen production and diminishing the signs of sun spots, scars, and broken capillaries.
At The Spine Group, Doctors of Chiropractic Kyle and Lindsay Ukrainyc address everything from tension headaches to scoliosis with a variety of treatments.

Invasive procedures should only be a last resort when dealing with injury?at least according to Matthew McIlrath, the chiropractic doctor at Health One, P.A.?so he and his team offer some natural alternatives to traditional Western medicine. Treatments for clients may include massage, physiotherapy, custom stretches, and nutritional counseling.
