With 35 years of experience, the medical staff at Progressive Wellness Center leads patients in reimagining their current state of health. Weight-loss programs centered around HCG help clients turn bulky bodies into slimmer, stronger silhouettes, and aesthetic injectables work to tighten slack skin or shoo spider veins from appendages. Alternatively, IV nutritional therapy invigorates the body's absorption of nutrients and the brain's absorption of the subtext in the last episode of Barney and Friends. To keep patients happy and relaxed before and after appointments, Progressive Wellness Medical Center maintains comfortable seating and a caf? area stocked with healthful shakes, as well as organic coffee and green tea.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Lewis Obi of Renaissance Center for Cosmetic Renewal has assembled a staff dedicated to the artistry of beauty-enhancing therapies. A Jacksonville native, Dr. Obi served in the United States Marine Corps and graduated cum laude from the University of Florida with a pharmacy degree. He then continued his medical education at the University of Miami, where his medical thesis was published in the international magazine Medical World News.
Dr. Obi performs myriad plastic-surgery procedures such as face-lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction, as well as minimally and noninvasive laser procedures ranging from skin tightening to laser hair removal. He and his technicians also perform facial cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and photofacial treatments that aim to treat a variety of skin types and ailments, such as rosacea, sun damage, and Sharpie unibrows.
Licensed paramedical aesthetician Stephanie Bell has stayed abreast of technological advances throughout her career, which spans more than a decade. At Total Body Aesthetics, which is celebrating its six-year anniversary at a new location with five studios, she equips clients with HCG diets, Synergy AMS treatments, and Formostar body wraps to help them lose inches and stay fit. To assist with skincare, she buffs and purifies faces with Clarisonic brushes, which pulse at 300 movements per minute, as fast as a Ferrari?s standing heart rate.
Bell balances the clinical feel of high-tech gadgets with the welcoming feel of earthy decor. Private treatment rooms brim with natural light filtering through thatched blinds. Plants add an organic touch, as do thick, sand-colored linens.
Dr. Quinn leads her staff in boosting clients? health and beauty with nonsurgical treatments that blend Western technology with holistic philosophies. Whether seeking to slim down or look younger, clients meet with Dr. Quinn to create a plan-of-action that matches their desired goals. This can include dermal fillers to plump up lips, medical diet plans to sleek silhouettes, or lasers to banish unwanted hair and tattoos. No matter the treatment, the staff lavishes clients with personal attention and ensures their safety and comfort.
At Dr. Clayman’s Plastic Surgery Center and Miracle Spa, experienced muscle kneaders and aestheticians soothe bodies with beautifying and relaxing services. During the hot-stone massage, therapists combine the placement of heated rocks on strategic pressure points with a flutter of kneading strokes to relax away the stresses of days spent working and nights spent trying to hitchhike and carrying a scythe.
For an additional fee, guests at The Mona Lisa Day Spa & Salon can opt to slip into a hydrotherapy tub or watch their once shy pores open in an aromatherapy steam room before any service begins. As soothing music placates ears and soft lighting makes everyone look more attractive, the spa's team of expert aestheticians melds Western and Eastern techniques. Warm wax gently removes hair from the body, and Japanese-inspired body treatments incorporate cherry blossom, rice-powder exfoliation, and a reflexology massage. Facials purify and nourish skin with Eco-Cert organic plant-derived ingredients and European techniques, and cosmetic services, such as makeup application and eyelash extensions, further beautify bodies. The Mona Lisa also offers massage packages which also allow individuals or couples the chance to pamper themselves and enjoy a day of relaxation.
