Before developing Elite Ceuticals Non Surgical Face Lift, the owner spent more than 20 years formulating skincare products for other companies. Armed with that experience, she creates skincare blends that stimulate and revive aging skin with aloe vera that's grown hydroponically—that is, fed a regimen of minerals and vitamins and never treated with pesticides or put through a laminating machine.
The team at Lifestyle Chiropractic & Wellness aim to support holistic wellbeing with a range of health services. Doctor of chiropractic Shelley Lowman pinpoints the source of aches and chronic pain before performing adjustments that can prevent injury and support healing. To augment bodily calm, licensed massage therapist Mykesha Young tweaks each of her techniques to the needs of the client, whether they simply need to relax or they're recovering from a Hacky Sack tournament.
Board-certified Dr. John Russell safely blots out body doodles on any skin type with the FDA-approved YAG Q-switched laser in sessions that last about five minutes. During a free consultation, staffers explain the removal process and employ the Kirby-Desai scale to calculate the number of treatments necessary for complete removal, based on the ink's pigment, depth, hue, and invisible-ink content. The YAG laser shatters pigments into teeny particles so that the body can naturally evacuate them. Topical anesthetic and gusts of cool air from a Zimmer Chiller device diminish the laser's stings, which are akin to a rubber band's snap. Warm towels put clients at ease before employees cap off appointments by bandaging over fading ink and applying ice. After 5–15 sessions, clients flaunt immaculate epidermal terrains, generally free of scarring and barbecue-sauce stains that were mistaken for tattoos.
There seems to be support waiting around every corner of North Kansas City Hospital’s 69-acre campus. Whether through their acute care facility, their accredited chest-pain center, a children’s learning center, or a pavilion dedicated to an array of inpatient and outpatient services, the healing center dispenses cures for ailments both big and small. In addition to fixing physical problems, such as a broken bone or a bad haircut, the hospital also offers support in the form of counseling and group fitness classes such as yoga, Zumba, and kickboxing.
At Dermalove Esthetics and Massage, licensed aesthetician and massage therapist Kelly Talmage expertly bestows anti-aging spa treatments and relaxing massages upon her clients. She evicts dead facial-skin cells using a microdermabrasion wand and gracefully wields a laser during hair-removal treatments or light shows for guests. Further beautification procedures include lash and brow tinting and spider-vein reduction.
At Cre8u Massage & Bodywork, muscles are put under controlled pressure to remove stiffness and painful knots, restoring them to relaxed elasticity. Clients can choose between a Swedish massage—a fluid style employing light to moderate pressure in order to increase circulation—or the deep tissue massage, where communications between the central nervous system and the muscular skeletal system are de-encrypted and reharmonized into stress-free symphonies. There is no special clothing requirement, so those in need of kneading can arrive directly from their chair at work or their Lego mattress at home.
