Under the supervision of a board-certified physician, the professional staff at Physician’s Weight Loss Centers helps clients work toward overall wellness while shedding pounds with their six specialized weight-loss programs. After a consultation with a certified staff member, each client is assigned to the program best suited to his or her goals, current health, and willingness to put up with a stack of pancake’s “I miss you!” text messages. Programs can also be augmented with regimens of supplements and vitamins, including the fat-targeting agents of vitamin B12 injections. Not merely satisfied with supplying menu plans, the staff offers behavior-guidance plans, counselors, and medical consultations to ensure clients fully embrace new, healthful behaviors.
The practitioners at East West Physicians don?t limit themselves to one approach to healthcare. Instead, they merge traditional Eastern medicine with chiropractic, primary care, and anti-aging therapies. The acupuncturists on staff use their hair-thin needles to combat everything from pain and infertility to weight problems, and the spine specialists treat children and adults with drug-free adjustments. Unlike chaperoning a kindergarten field trip to the car horn factory, visiting the center is a good thing to do if you?re feeling tired and stressed; vitamin drips and bio-identical hormones treat fatigue, and massage therapy relaxes muscles and minds.
There’s always a busy buzz at Inspiration by Claudia. Inside, you can find stylists hard at work with cuts, blowouts, and conditioning treatments. Aestheticians occupy themselves by waxing eyebrows, removing signs of age with Botox treatments, and performing 60-minute facials. The staff speaks both English and Spanish, ensuring clients get the look they desire and not just this haircut photo glued to the back of their head.
Located within MéJon Salon & Spa, Gal-or uses products imported from Isreal to clear complexions with microdermabrasion and other skin services. The salon also offers a full menu of pampering beauty services, including hair and nail treatments.
TTI Organics is a destination for aesthetic treatments both dramatic and subtle. Detail-oriented beauties opt for eyelash extensions, or request a wax with optional Swarovski crystals. Crystals make another, more understated appearance?but with big results?during microdermabrasion treatments, which slough away dead skin cells to showcase the naturally dewy complexion that lies beneath. Microcurrent face-lifts tighten tired skin, making clients look so young that servers ask for ID before letting them order dishes topped with white-wine or vodka sauce. For a whole-body change, clients opt for spray tans, inch-shedding body wraps, and ultrasonic cavitation.
At Advanced Dentistry of Plantation, father-and-son duo Marc and Eli Schwartz pair extensive medical training with an artistic touch to polish and align smiles. The dental team's operating motto—“We create beautiful smiles”—finds its way into nearly all of their general, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. During comprehensive exams, the doctors Schwartz inspect mouths for signs of tooth decay and gum disease before leaning in to listen for the telltale trills of swallowed harmonicas. A digital x-ray machine peers beneath the gumline to find hidden cavities, and a DiagnoDent laser pen helps the dentists locate other minor issues before they become major problems.
Cosmetic enhancements—from thin, custom-made veneers to a full-mouth rejuvenation—fill the gaps in missing, chipped, or crooked teeth. The Zoom whitening system's peroxide-based gel imbues teeth with a stainless glow, and Invisalign braces straighten smiles without temporarily sacrificing their attractiveness.
