Featuring an upscale yet warm and comfortable atmosphere, Sanctuary offers you a complimentary beverage of your choice before your face-beautifying session. The microdermabrasion treatment removes layers of sun damage, sluggish and stressed-out skin, and ambiguous, unidentified dark spots ($60). After an initial face cleaning, the oxy trio facial treatment ($85) will provide three-step antioxidant therapy designed to avoid and rectify damage caused by free radicals—a leading contributor to the aging process and melty legs. Even after a semester spent crab fishing in the Everglades, the treatment is able to rejuvenate stressed skin and stimulate circulation and respiration. The trio is then followed up by the Ultra II treatment, which promotes cell turnover and production of elastin and collagen for a soft, vibrant appearance that can be seen in mirrors.
At Kansas City Dental, Dr. Guerschon de Laurent addresses cosmetic, restorative, and preventative oral-health issues at their roots. The multilingual doctor employs a host of technologies, including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays, to project detailed views of the mouth and to find the underlying causes of dental aches and periodontal disease. Dr. Laurent corrects crowding or spacing problems with Invisalign retainers, gently coaxing teeth back into place with such successful results that in 2011 he earned the title of Premier Invisalign Provider in recognition of the more than 300 jaws he’s straightened. A commander in the US Army Reserves Dental Corps, Dr. Laurent also plies his trade abroad while serving members of the armed forces and on humanitarian missions that have taken him to Central America and the Caribbean.
There seems to be support waiting around every corner of North Kansas City Hospital’s 69-acre campus.

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.
House of Élan offers revitalizing body treatments for existing humans and personalized hair-removal options for men and women. Dr. John Verstraete and his team of whisker-erasers employ elos technology to clear bodily brush without resorting to wax or wildfires. Over the course of six sessions, strand assassins will harness bi-polar radio frequencies and light energies to precisely target unwanted keratin and foil follicular invasions, systematically weakening woolen defenses with each treatment. Elos is purported to be effective in the eradication of lighter-colored hair on skin of most shades, hues, and tartan plaid patterns.
The science behind the impressive results of Mind, Body, & Soul is complex and nuanced, but its aim is simple: enhance a naturally occurring metabolic process. The Yolo Curve and Lapex Lipo Laser target fat cells with noninvasive laser energy, causing them to release water, fatty acids, and glycerol, which results in smaller fat cells and inch loss.
