Helmed by experienced physicians and medical practitioners, Medi-Spa Services LLC conspires to restore skin to youthful vim and vigor via services such as skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, acne resurfacing, and cellulite reduction. Additionally, special lasers blast unwanted hair from their abodes and evict fungus from toenails. Their wrinkle-smoothing Botox treatments last usually for up to four months, ensuring skin as unfurrowed as the Secret Garden's even more-secret cabbage patch. In addition to their in-house treatments, the knowledgeable staff also helps partnering practices to launch into the Non-Invasive Cosmetic Enhancement (NICE) business by supplying them with state-of-the-art technology, custom marketing material, and training.
Helping customers enhance their looks and boost their self-esteem is the mission at Georgeana Enhancements, where staff members offer an array of cosmetic services. For weight loss, they prescribe meal plans, administer B12 injections, and perform Liposonix treatments that break down fat cells using ultrasound energy. They can also remove facial lines with Botox injections and erase enamel discoloration with either Boost or Zoom! teeth-whitening technology, instead of a fire hose.
Dr. Sanjiv Saini and the team of physician assistants and registered nurses at MD Dermatology of Maryland tend to the medical and esthetician needs of skin at their state-of-the-art facilities. They perform scalp-to-toe screenings to check for malicious moles, growths, or "kick me" signs, and they treat conditions such as acne, eczema, and melasma. On the medical spa side of things, they offer beauty injections and chemical peels, as well as laser skin surfacing, laser hair removal, and professional-grade products for purchase.
Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's 24 clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with gym workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts lathered in a fresh coat of peanut butter every morning. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of gym equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.
A graduate of Boston University and a Cosmetic Dentistry program at NYU, Dr. Alona Bauer tackles everything from wrinkle-removal treatments to teeth whitening to sleep apnea with CPAP-alternatives. At her office, patients relax in comfy chairs, their necks supported by a plump pillow. Visitors can take their mind off of any procedure by listening to music on noise-canceling headphones or watching the DVDs playing overhead.
Natasha Sandy always knew she wanted to be a doctor, but it was her life experiences that narrowed her focus to dermatology. As a child, she suffered from skin conditions that landed her in numerous hospitals and doctors' offices, and led her to wish for a specialist that would take a whole-body approach to skincare, rather than just treating symptoms. Today, that's exactly what she does at her own practice, where she used advanced diagnostic tools to––in her own words––"treat skin from the inside out."
When she isn't administering injectables, peels, and other therapies to address cosmetic and health-related skincare issues, Dr. Sandy also teaches and writes about dermatology and total health.
