At Blissful Wellness Medical Weight Loss Centers, Dr. Elyssa Blissenbach and her team of licensed medical professionals and counselors devote their medical expertise to combating obesity. They take a three-pronged approach to slimming clients: customized programs, top-shelf supplements, and constant support. Like snowflakes’ DNA strands, no two patients are alike—and so staff members carefully calibrate diet and supplement plans to suit each client's metabolism, condition, and body type. The program also provides a support system for clients, offering everything from individual therapy to group outings to help ensure long-term weight loss.
Dr. Gary Bernard and the experienced technicians at Pointe Medical eradicate unwanted hair during five sessions that cover one of 17 areas. Clients can relax as technicians wield the power of Variable Pulsed Light, used in more than 1,000 clinics and supervillain lairs. Focused light waves make their way into follicles in a process that expunges unwanted follicular forests safely and much more quickly than tying each individual hair to a closing doorknob. Due to VPL's micropulsing technology, heat does not rise in the skin, eliminating the need for a pretreatment cooling process that some claim causes superficial blood vessels to constrict. Clients may also apply the value of this Groupon to upgrade to larger areas of the body.
Dr. Bernard, resident physician of Park Place, A Medical Spa, attempts to foil the effects of aging and excess body blubber with noninvasive med-spa procedures. His trio of chemical peels uses either powerful phenol, trichloroacetic acid, or gentler alphahydroxy acid to unveil younger-looking skin. He leaves countenances supple enough to invent never-before-seen expressions with custom facials, and sweeps away surface imperfections such as fine lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation with microdermabrasion.
In addition to skincare-focused services, the doctor performs health- and body-related treatments, such as K1 whole-body vibration, which aims to improve circulation and muscle tone with oscillating vibrations created by thousands of mexican jumping beans. Also making the list are Lipo-Ex treatments—which harness advanced technology to smooth cellulite and tighten sagging skin—hydrogen-peroxide teeth-whitening, and laser hair-removal treatments.
Under the guidance of Dr. John Morello and Sherri Frith, P.A - C., Mana Medical Spa's skincare specialists help patients "enhance their Mana," or essence, with wrinkle- and stress-reducing treatments. During facials and peels, aesthetician, Elise Becker, cloaks reposing mugs in a collagen-renewing formula to fade indicators of time, such as fine lines and page-a-day calendars grafted to foreheads.
Drs. J. Phillip and Robert Garcia are so committed to proper skincare that they invented their own medical product—Belladerm-Rx, a prescription formula meant to stave off signs of aging and environmental damage. Today, the doctors and their staff at Reviva Medical Spa customize at-home regimens of Belladerm-Rx for patients, and apply their expertise onsite during several skincare services.
These treatments combine a calm, pampering environment with medical precision. Licensed aestheticians administer facials that target problems from acne to fine lines, as well as mini-treatments that refresh complexions in 30 minutes. The Bella Vitamin C Blast, for example, firms up the face with a 30% concentration of vitamin C, the equivalent of eskimo-kissing an orange for four hours. More in-depth treatments range from microdermabrasion to chemical peels, the latter of which are grouped into three levels depending on their strength. Injectables such as Botox and Radiesse fend off wrinkles, and Ultherapy diminishes the appearance of sagging skin through applications of ultrasound. The spa also offers massage and laser hair-removal sessions.
At 20 Minute Lipo, technicians help slim down bodies with a quick treatment. A laser stimulates the fat cells underneath the skin, causing them to break down and redistribute their contents throughout the body. The patient's natural metabolic pathways then help to expel those contents. This treatment, in combination with regular exercise and a healthy diet, may take 2–4 inches off waistlines. The team of consultants also work with clients to improve their nutrition, hormones, skin elasticity, and other aesthetic issues.
