After receiving medical training in Colombia, Dr. Alfredo López-Yunez came to the United States to complete his residency in neurology before moving on to lead the health professionals at Alivio Medical Center. There, the staff tends to patients with services ranging from basic physical exams and hearing tests to the treatment of cardiac concerns and respiratory diseases. Whether taking x-rays or treating spider veins with sclerotherapy, the professionals pride themselves on a culturally competent approach that doesn’t assume everyone was brought to their parents by the same stork. In addition to diagnosing and treating maladies, the center guides patients toward overall wellness with individual healthy eating plans designed by a registered dietitian.
Specializing in a variety of nonsurgical and surgical beauty-bolstering procedures, the Gillian Institute for Plastic, Aesthetic, and Laser Surgery people attain aesthetic goals both big and small. The SkinTyte facial treatment uses pulsed light to deeply heat skin while cooling and protecting the entire treated surface area, stimulating collagen production and leading to a firmer, tighter skull covering. The glow-endowing treatment is effective for all skin types, including dry, oily, and stegosaurus, though most people's skins require four treatments to achieve maximum results. Immediately after your SkinTyte procedure, you can return to normal activities, be they shucking pistachios or cat nannying.

At SoBRO Bodyworks, Heather customizes each treatment to the needs of her client by integrating the smooth, gliding movements of Swedish massage with the manual muscle therapy of deep tissue treatments. Treatments can also integrate soothing essential oils made from herbs, fruits, and daffodils that Toby Keith kisses each night before he goes out onstage.
Indy Laser Lipo takes over for failed diet and exercise attempts by shrinking fat cells with lasers. Technicians apply two LipoLaser paddles directly to problem areas⎯including the sides, chin, arms, or thighs⎯allowing the noninvasive lasers to penetrate down to fat cells, where they break the cells’ membranes and cause them to release their contents into the body and shrink. After undergoing treatments three times a week for six weeks, clients may expect to lose several inches from the targeted areas, giving them the confidence to show off their swimsuit-ready body and fit into their old high-school locker.
