Dr. Ellen Turner and her staff of aestheticians, physician's assistants, and medical assistants are passionate about what they do. In a mini-documentary about their practice, they all chime in about unearthing their clients' inner beauty and enhancing their self-confidence. Through their treatments, which range from facials to treatments for acne and rosacea, they focus on making a difference in their patients' lives. A lot of times this means bringing about change that makes patients happy to look in mirrors and unwilling to hide their faces beneath brown paper bags.

Anthony Capasso, a board-certified doctor of internal medicine, has channeled his more than 15 years of experience treating weight-related ailments into developing medication-free approaches to weight loss at Thin Centers MD. At each location, clients start their medical weight-loss regimens with an initial consultation that uses various health metrics—including medical history and a blood evaluation—to determine which approach fits them best. Dr. Capasso’s diets come tailored to various lifestyles, ranging from those that work for avid cooks to diets for people with hectic schedules. Each of the programs can also be enhanced with the fat-melting technology of an FDA-approved Zerona laser. Weekly follow-up visits with the medical staff help patients track their weight-loss progress, stamp their diet journal with the words “Private—This Means You, Mom,” and make any necessary changes to their program.

A slate of facials resurface skin with the help of microdermabrasions and natural enzymes, and eyelash extensions, laser hair removal, and permanent makeup leave a longer-lasting elegance than the beauty mark chiseled into Mount Rushmore.
The staff at MD Secrets recalibrates bodies hassled by age and ailments with customized health and beauty treatments. Their weight-loss plans help clients melt away quick pounds or establish sustained slimming by emphasizing cooking, variety, and eating on the go. Bioidentical hormone-replacement therapies boost energy and mood by supplementing the body’s hormones, whose levels may decline with age; allergy treatments help improve lives beset by dander and pollen. Staffers even take care of bodily façades with aesthetic treatments that help clients feel better about their appearances, or copy and replace their aesthetically pleasing enemies.
