Whitman Medical Group's health professionals promote a holistic approach to weight loss, furnishing psychological support, supplements, and metabolism-boosting injections. An initial medical evaluation produces a plan to prune pudge, putting an individualized diet plan and food journals into the hands of its clients. Four injections, starting with the first visit, imbue bodies with vitamin B12, lipotropic compounds, and lean, liquid vibes, all of which expedite the breakdown of fat. Personalized supplements spread the skinniness spell throughout the 30-day period, during which health-conscious humans complete three counseling sessions. The final office visit will include a measurement of patients' progress in their weight loss, healthy eating, and ability to sing the national anthem backward.
Acclaimed by Forbes as one of the United States' leading plastic-surgery providers in 2009, The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery enhances natural beauty by tweaking clients' existing features. SkinMedica chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments both foster deep exfoliation and cell renewal, and laser hair removal lifts away body hair without harming or blinding the skin. Bianca Moreno, RN administers cosmetic injections for Botox, Juvederm, and more.

Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
I find [glo therapeutics] to be the best skin line. [It is an] affordable product that actually gives results. It has a clean feel and gives a natural glow for all skin types. The glo minerals makeup line is also a natural compliment to your skin [and it maintains] a natural feel and look.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
I not only [take] pride in making my clients happy but also in giving them realistic results that [are] skillfully tailored to their own natural beauty.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
I have noticed almost everyone not using SPF sunscreen. It is extremely vital to our skin that we protect it from the sun's rays. Another mistake I've found is those who do put on SPF think it's protecting them all day. SPF needs to be reapplied every two hours, especially for those who [are] outside for work or pleasure and [those] who drive a lot. SPF should be applied to the face, neck, décolleté, arms, and hands if [they are] exposed. Typically, our left side [of the] face, arms, and hands are the most exposed areas and tend to be more tanned as a result from driving. [They] also tend to [have] more unwanted skin conditions. Thus, I can't stress enough the importance of having your SPF. It also aids in [the] anti-aging of the skin.

He also holds double board certification as a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and an otolaryngologist, a surgeon who works on the head and neck. At his surgical practice, he works exclusively on faces, priding himself on providing natural-looking results to his patients. There, he and his staff also provide B12 injections, laser hair removal treatments, skin peels, face lifts, and free smiles.

As the name suggests, the doctors and aestheticians at Skin Body Soul nurture a balance between outer beauty and inner peace. Aiming to restore the body's nutrients while drawing out its toxins, treatments such as Herbalogica body wraps use niacin and soy oil to stimulate collagen production and firm up skin. Nonsurgical lipo treatments and infrared sauna sessions similarly aim to contour the body through the use of ultrasound and dry infrared heat, respectively.
Several of the spa's other offerings, including microcurrent treatments, glycolic peels, and Norvell sunless tanning, restore a youthful glow to skin. But the staff's expertise doesn't stop at the service menu. They keep a blog updated with recipes, nutrition tips, and YouTube videos of the latest dance craze the Protein Shake.
At Venus Skin Care & Salon, chemical peels and 10 different types of facials help patients defy the passage of time without resorting to surgery. In the salon, stylists trim hair and work it into trendy forms. Elsewhere, body scrubs and cellulite treatments help touch up clients' skin.
