The team at Art of Image Studio want their clients to feel happy with their body, but not at the expense of surgery or radical dieting. That's why they re-shape physiques using noninvasive methods such as ultrasonic liposuction and cavitation, processes designed to shrink fat cells without breaking the skin. Similarly, sea-clay wraps work to slim waistlines by drawing out water, toxins, and fully inflated balloons.
At Thomae Surgical, board-certified surgeon Dr. Keith Thomae and registered nurse Jessica Jausel help patients look their best with a wide array of cosmetic services. The medical professionals remove unsightly spider veins with both lasers and ultra-fine needles, they smooth facial creases with Botox injections, and they banish stubborn fat deposits with minimally invasive liposuction treatments.
The experienced staff at Beautiful Body Laser understand that starting a weight-loss regimen can feel about as inspiring as alphabetizing your receipts. To help, they tailored three separate programs geared toward motivating clients while providing visible results. A body-detoxification program aims to quickly cleanse the body, leaving a blank slate to inspire continued healthy eating and fitness. Also offered is a doctor-designed weight loss program. Finally, lipo-laser systems such as Erchonia nudge the body into naturally flushing out fat in hard-to-shrink places, such as the lower belly and love handles.
Stepping into the lobby of Beautiful Body Laser seems more like dropping by the home of a hip friend than a professional med spa.
Dr. Raffi Krikorian, the medical director at New Look Vein and Aesthetic Center, and his staff employ vascular know-how as they treat unsightly, unruly, and painful vessels in the legs. Techniques range from laser, radiofrequency, and chemical-injection treatment of large varicose veins to more dramatic ambulatory phlebectomies and cheese-baited vein traps. In addition to fighting the purple graffiti of unwanted veins, they also ward off the signs of aging with wrinkle-plumping injectables and chemical-peel facials. Vials of Latisse pump up eyelash volume to fortissimo and hand rejuvenation leaves paws smooth and supple, as if they'd been washing dishes in the Fountain of Youth.
Hair-removing lasers and dermal fillers populate the list of cosmetic services offered at Clayton Med Spa. The center's skilled technicians and aestheticians bid dullness adieu with diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, skin-rejuvenating photofacials, and other treatments that target the face and body. Those hoping to correct sagging skin sans surgery can receive noninvasive skin-tightening treatments, which use infrared light, magnetic pulses, and bipolar radio frequencies to stimulate collagen production. Injectables such as Botox, Juv?derm, and Restylane help fill in fine lines caused by aging or falling asleep atop a subway grate.
Holistic Health and Fitness aims to cleanse the body inside and out, employing staff members whose talents stretch as wide as their tallest client's arms. Four certified colon hydrotherapists, four licensed massage therapists, and a doctor of chiropractic all call the holistic center home and offer services that complement one another. For example, Dr. Anne Roulo often recommends her chiropractic patients combine adjustments with colon hydrotherapy, which can increase energy levels and wash away toxic material.
