While hormones are famous for being the root cause behind most adolescent anguish, at Progressive Health & Wellness, the team focuses on the medical maladies they can cause. Dr. Prakash K. Bhatia, one of the two doctors that helm the clinic, specializes in bio-identical hormone-replacement therapy, which neutralizes symptoms of hormone imbalance from depression to hair loss and weight gain. The staff can also catalyze slimdowns with alternative methods, including recommending diet and exercise regimens and prescribing appetite suppressants. Additionally, they tend to physiques with primary-care appointments, boost patients' energy levels and immune systems with B12 shots, and offer aesthetic treatments such as wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections, laser hair removal, and chemical peels.
At Spirit Lift, plastic and reconstructive surgeons perform surgical and nonsurgical body-contouring services in a med spa that resembles a meditation retreat. A garden of bamboo plants sprouts up under the reed ceilings of the lobby, surrounding patrons waiting to walk into warmly decorated treatment rooms. Using the latest technology and the most effective wizard staffs, the doctors perform services such as breast augmentation, face-lifts, laser resurfacing, and liposuction.
Dr. Roy J. Robinson helps his patients lose weight with dietary advice and the added boost of supplement injections. He also rids beach bodies and vacationing peaches of unwanted fuzz with laser hair-removal treatments, and diminishes wrinkles with Botox injections.
Clients saddle up to the stable of whole-body-vibration trainers at Success Wellness's Szone, stepping onto the machines' vibrating platforms as they initiate thousands of tiny muscle contractions across the body. The technology was originally developed to help astronauts to maintain crucial muscle mass while floating around in microgravity, and it now enjoys popularity among celebrities and athletes as a hassle-free way to augment the effects of regular exercise. Success Wellness's entire facility focuses on the vibration exercise, which can give practitioners results in as little as 10-minute sessions three times a week. Regular practice can increase bone density and muscle mass, and the low-impact nature of the exercise makes it ideal for seniors, those with conditions such as arthritis and rheumatism, or fitness-conscious Fabergé eggs.

Their toolbox also includes liquid nitrogen and high-tech lasers designed to tackle abnormal skin tissues and uproot unwanted body hair or invasive surveillance equipment disguised to look like body hair.
