?Give me 45 minutes and I will take off 15 years,? says Midwest Medical Aesthetics' president Kathleen Stegman on the company's website. As a registered nurse with a quarter-century of experience in the beauty industry, she has the knowledge to do just that. Stegman's expertise lies in beauty injections such as Botox and Dysport, which she's been using to tighten faces for more than 17 years. Along with her team of associated physicians, she also harnesses the power of laser energy to help clients remove unwanted hair, shed fat, and erase tattoos of ex-lovers' favorite species of fungus.
After more than two decades as a family physician, Dr. Carla Phipps pursued training in laser aesthetics, Botox and collagen fillers, liposuction, and fat transfer. With these cosmetic techniques in her toolbelt, she joined forces with aesthetician Brittany Rivera to build a toolbelt factory, and then to found Laser & Cosmetic Center. The med spa's catalog of noninvasive treatments includes injectables, clinical facials, and body contouring.

UltraSlim Kansas whittles waistlines and spot-treats problem areas with noninvasive red-light technology. After the technician snaps "before" photos, clients lie fully-clothed on the treatment table while the UltraSlim LED panel is positioned on areas such as the love handles, thighs, arms, and abdomen. LED light then penetrates the fat cells and causes them to release their fatty acids and glycerol into the body. The fat cells are then able to shrink, which translates to inch-loss.
The body eventually eliminates the expelled fat-cell contents naturally via the lymphatic system or burns them for energy, a process that is helped along with a complimentary five-minute session on a whole-body-vibration machine. Technicians also recommend clients do some form of cardio exercise, such as jogging or ribbon dancing, for 30 minutes following each treatment to help prevent the body from reabsorbing fat. In addition to slimming the body, the UltraSlim LED treatments can also boost collagen production in order to help smooth and tighten skin.
