Nueva Nail's Noveon NaiLaser targets and destroys toenail fungus. To damage the metabolism of, and eventually kill, fungal cells, the Noveon NaiLaser emits patented wavelengths of 870nm and 930nm whose temperatures only hurt fungus, never nearby healthy tissue. Thanks to the device's laser pods, up to four infected nails can be treated simultaneously, which means procedures usually take a mere 16 minutes. Two laser treatments over a 24-day period can completely kill the fungus underneath the nail, giving patients the chance to don sandals and drive a car without wrapping the gas pedal in saran wrap.

Having planned and executed massage therapy for the Tennessee Titans and competitors in the Rock ?n? Roll Marathon, the muscle menders at Athletic Edge know how to help the body recover from physical trauma and athletic exertion. Their highly individualized treatments pull from more than 15 modalities?soothing muscles with gliding Swedish strokes, targeting the deeper connective tissue with neuromuscular therapy, and even combining salutary techniques to treat the underlying causes of aches. Although the gentle or directed kneading can have a distinctively relaxing effect, the therapists specialize in jump-starting clients' natural healing processes and helping them overcome the soft-tissue pains that athletic activity, auto accidents, and full-contact charades can cause. The studios also partner with chiropractors and physical therapists to form a one-stop treatment center for athletes, with particular modalities complementing the strains incurred by particular sports.
Dr. Jay Bansal has performed more than 20,000 successful LASIK procedures since his 1994 certification by the American Board of Ophthalmology. Dr. Bansal, a physician trainer for IntraLase technology and the medical director of LaserVue Eye Center, performs every single LASIK procedure at three of the center’s four locations: San Francisco, Mountain View, and Walnut Creek. He specializes in a blade-free process using iLASIK wavefront technology, which relies on advanced lasers and enhanced optical imagery to improve a patient’s chances of achieving 20/20 or better vision while decreasing their chances of experiencing nighttime blurriness. In addition to LASIK, LaserVue’s American Board of Ophthalmology-certified eye surgeons and ophthalmic technicians offer several types of cataract surgery, as well as treatments for other ocular conditions such as dry eye or glaucoma.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
