Charles Grim has always had an itch to help people; having spent time as both a math teacher and a youth counselor. In order to deepen his own ability to affect positive change, Dr. Grim has spent the past 30 years studying wellness techniques, focusing specifically on treatments for muscular and structural ailments. His efforts have landed him a wealth of experience and board certifications for extremity and sports adjusting. At Laser Wellness Center, he and his staff offer a menu of wellness services that places equal importance on chiropractic care, massage therapy, and noninvasive laser treatments.
At Rose Tree Medical Associates, LLC, board-certified internist Dr. Kelli E. Yacono and her team of beauty boosters turn back time with a bouquet of nonsurgical solutions. During an appointment that lasts for roughly 15 minutes, a steady-handed physician injects the FDA-approved Botox serum into wrinkled skinscapes, temporarily freezing the muscle contractions responsible for creating forehead furrows, frown lines, and crow's-feet. Fine lines begin to fade 72 hours postinjection, and results can stay put on the visage for up to four months. The noninvasive treatment requires no downtime, so freshened faces can return to emoting and modeling fencing masks immediately afterward.
The certified physicians of Philly Lipo Laser target fat cells with the FDA-approved Lapex 2000 BCS, whose noninvasive laser technology gradually trims away unwanted inches. Immediately after treatments, they can provide a 10-minute vibration-platform session to burn the same amount of calories as 30 minutes of exercise or two hours spent chewing gum vigorously. To complement treatments, doctors can also create a three-week exercise and nutrition program for patients to follow.
Along with Philly Lipo Laser's body contouring, its strategic partner, Morgan Chiropractic Center, administers physical adjustments and treats back injuries with a combination of medical expertise and holistic procedures.
Dr. Harold Farber's technique has been described by some as "artful poetry in motion." It could have something to do with his state-of-the-art equipment—which he uses to assess patients' health and dermal conditions—or the fact that he allays concerns by explaining his every move during treatments.
At Center for Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, he oversees a team of dermatologists who correct issues such as acne, sun damage, and signs of aging. The team follows Dr. Farber's lead by keeping abreast of the latest techniques, be it the sloughing off of dead skin cells through microdermabrasion or the illuminating of complexions with chemical peels or a steady hand with a spotlight.
Donna Scott has been to the Oscars. Though she's not a thespian, the longtime medical aesthetician and certified laser skincare expert transported her handpicked products and know-how to the Academy Awards earlier this year, setting up shop at the Donna Scott Celebrity Spa Lounge. Scott, the recipient of InStyle magazine's Beauty Black Book distinction for the best facials in Philadelphia, delivers results by grounding her treatments in science. Where Philadelphia specifically lauds her glycolic peel with vitamin C, noting that it yields "remarkably brighter skin" by lifting away superficial cells. Scott has performed this and other rejuvenating treatments for celebrities at New York Fashion Week and the MTV Movie Awards, but she spends most of her time enhancing the natural beauty of everyday people, such as working moms who have reared spelling-bee champions. By customizing a suite of products for each individual, she treats and assuages skin issues such as rosacea, acne, and hyperpigmentation.
Lauded live on Dr. Oz for reducing inflammation and helping patients manage pain, Cryotek's Cryosauna envelopes clients in an open-top standup booth that surrounds the body with temperatures up -250 degrees Fahrenheit.

They also claim the Cryosauna supports other areas of physiological and even psychological health including reducing inflammation from arthritis, soothing irritation from psoriasis, reducing stress, and restoring libido. An FAQ page addresses queries ranging from what the treatment feels like to how it differs from kissing a snowman.
