Dr. Cristy Thomas, DNP.FNP-BC and her team of wellness wizards illuminate steps toward a healthy lifestyle through personalized weight-loss and nutrition plans. During the month-long weight-loss program, patients visit with a highly trained medical staff member each week to receive a weight-loss shot that can increase metabolism when paired with a personally tailored diet and regular exercise. Clients' struggles and goals are the cornerstone of the diet plan, as well as the blueprint for an inevitable biopic. Weight and blood pressure are recorded each week to track progress. Those adhering to the weight-loss plan can shed between 1–3 pounds a week. Alternatively, patients can opt for a month of B-12 shots. Since vitamin B-12 deficiency can lead to fatigue and general frailty, weekly shots can lead to increased energy and ironclad immune-system walls, penetrable only by vengeful armies of trans fat.
Circled and starred in the pages of tabloids, cellulite is the scarlet letter of the beauty world, despite its near inevitability. Rid your rump and its surrounding regions of the dreaded dimples with specialized sessions at the Sahara Street location, one of the only Las Vegas–based spots to offer the service. Using no needles, surgery, or bizarre chemicals, the sculpting treatments can help patients lose an average of 10 to 15 inches in a five-week program. Performed by fully trained and licensed massage professionals, the brisk knuckle technique is intense but normally not considered painful. The technique increases circulation to help the body eliminate toxins, and practitioners recommend a regimen of two cups of green tea per day to foster dramatic results.
Sarah Guillot-Guyard, a current performer with Cirque du Soleil, brings students as young as three into her world of performance at Cirquefit. She offers different circus-themed classes, such as trapeze, acrobatics, and even a class that features tightrope walking and juggling. Different as the classes may be, each aims to help kids develop motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and many other attributes that can help them artfully escape from chores behind a plume of smoke.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Daniel Taheri, the staff at LA Laser and Skin Center harnesses laser-fat-removal technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can slink away. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time. Technicians perform the six treatments within 72 hours of one another over the span of two weeks, the exact length of time it takes a laser to cross a football field. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, regular hydration, and avoidance of caffeine and alcohol.
