Under the directorship of Dr. Bryan Levey, M.D., LipoLaser of South Jersey's team of medical specialists helps clients achieve their fat-loss and body-contouring goals with advanced laser procedures and holistic health methods. All the facility's technicians are certified and have been trained by Yolo Medical, the same entity that manufactures the Lapex BCS 2000 laser used during LipoLaser sessions. In addition to administering Lapex Curve and LipoLaser body-slimming treatments, the weight-loss gurus lead clients through a four-step program that involves detoxification, LipoLaser, and nutrition and exercise integration. With laser treatments and the motivation of coach Debbi, who has undergone various laser treatments herself, clients can tread the path toward a slimmer physique that can squeeze into even the tightest of potato sacks during family barbecues.
Edge Salon and Spa is comprised of hairstylists, nail technicians, massage therapists, and aestheticians, all of whom work to help clients look and feel their best. Inside the salon, scissors crop men's and women's hair while foils embellish them with highlights. The spa, on the other hand, focuses on feel-good massages, organic airbrush tanning, and body-sculpting VelaShape treatments.
For years, the doctors and weight-loss experts at South Jersey Health and Body have aided clients looking to shed weight and adopt healthier lifestyles. The team provides one-on-one attention while devising custom weight-loss plans that incorporate a range of techniques, from behavioral modification to nutritional counseling. First, patients enter their diet and sleeping habits into software that processes the information. A staffer then explains the results and tailors a program to suit their individual health goals. Throughout the process, the clinic encourages patients to stay on course with weekly accountability checks and quarterly report cards mailed to their mothers.
Nestled among towering trees in a stone-flanked cottage, Cosmetic Skin Care Specialists of Cherry Hill highlights clients' inner beauty within a serene, homelike environment. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Lyle M. Back calls on more than 20 years of experience as he polishes silhouettes with focused surgical procedures and in-office cosmetic services. Meanwhile, his veteran staff enhances appearances with a slew of nonsurgical treatments—including facials, massage, and waxing—that return bodies to the ravishing, youthful state they flaunted when first hatching from their eggs.
When she was a host of Philadelphia morning news program “Eye Opener,” Marlie Hall consumed her fair share of coffee, donuts, and other breakfast goodies. Between her love for food, her job, and her lifestyle though, she didn’t think she could ever drop the weight she had put on from those treats. But through her efforts, she surprised herself—and the staff of the weight loss clinic—by losing 21 pounds. In her video testimony, she also attributes much of her success to her program’s herbal supplements, which she says curbed her appetite and filled her with energy.
Marlie’s journey is much like other success stories shared by Soza Clinic clients who have chosen its medically supervised weight loss programs. Based on client needs, a program may include nutritional counseling, personal training, and psychological or psychiatric counseling. Clients may also benefit from vitamin B12 injections or other products that can help boost energy and increase metabolism. Along with specific programs, the clinic also offers skin-tightening and body-contouring treatments that use radio frequency energy to stimulate lymphatic drainage and shrink fat cells.
