Luxor Medical Spa's licensed medical team keeps clients relaxed while reviving bodies with noninvasive treatments designed to improve skin appearance, clarify blemishes and lines, and boost overall confidence. General surgeon Dr. Yasser Salem has performed a broad range of vascular treatments for more than a decade and oversees vein-therapy procedures. A complement of laser technologies treats the full spectrum of skincare concerns by harnessing light to remove unwanted hair and address wrinkles. Chemical peels and medical facials clear blemishes and nourish skin surfaces with a variety of skincare products including SkinCeuticals, Obagi, and Luxor's in-house line.
At Spectrum Psoriasis and Vitiligo Centers, technology is used to conquer many difficult skin conditions. The Center's secret weapon—the Pharos EX-308 laser—is powerful enough to banish psoriasis as well as the effects of vitiligo. Though it may look intimidating, its delicate controls render procedures pain free for maximum patient comfort. Beneath its beams, unwanted body hair faces a harrowing fate as the laser targets each follicle and ousts it for good, resulting in smooth skin over a series of treatments. But that's not where the doctors' services end. They also use Juvederm and Botox injections to smooth facial wrinkles brought on by experiencing any human emotion ever.
You might think Dr. Diana Nguyen was a relationship counselor, given her ability to foster harmony between patients and their mirrors. At Better Aesthetics MedSpa, she uses her expertise as a board-certified physician and experience with anti-aging treatments to change how patients feel about themselves.
Together with vice president and co-owner Sherry Hill, a doctor of chiropractic and registered nurse, Dr. Nguyen administers Botox and dermal fillers to combat wrinkles. The duo also transforms bodies from the inside out with medically supervised HCG weight-loss programs and detoxifying infrared-sauna sessions. The med spa's reception area boasts a clean, modern vibe with hardwood floors, white, Roman-style columns, and a white statue reminiscent of Aphrodite, the ancient goddess of microdermabrasion.
At Sea Mist Medical Weight Loss, physicians pair FDA-approved appetite suppressants with medications that spark the metabolism and burn fat. Doctor Richard Mantell and board-certified family nurse practitioner Tracy Guthrie craft a results-oriented plan, emphasizing a reduced-calorie diet and personal exercise requirements to ensure long-lasting results. Advanced body-composition scales accurately determine each patient?s lean body mass, body-mass index, and fat-free mass, helping gauge the goals and success of each client.
The staff at Beach Rehab Center—helmed by CEO and owner Polly McCormick, a certified drug and alcohol counselor—seeks to improve their clients' wellness and combat addiction through holistic, physical medicine. The team combines Eastern and Western medicines, offering clients multiple avenues toward better health. Polly specializes in neck and back rehab and pre- and post-natal massage, though the staff also provides traditionally relaxing massage styles. Their techniques range from the light strokes of effleurage to the more intense kneads of deep-tissue techniques, which can loosen the toughest of knots, even those formed while attempting to unzip your own skin suit.
Beach Cities Medical Weight Loss Clinic specialists aim to show patients that losing weight doesn't have to be a struggle. Starting with a complimentary consultation, they'll begin tailoring a customized and easy-to-follow weight-loss program to fit their patient's needs. They'll also perform a body composition analysis, which arms the patient with specific knowledge about the makeup of their body, such as how much of it is made up of water and—by process of elimination—how much of it is made of cheese. Using all this information, a physician or nurse practitioner will work with the patient to develop a plan that focuses on healthy eating, exercise, and FDA-approved supplements and injections that can curb appetites and energize the patient, a combination designed to spur weight loss.
