As a physician with board certification in emergency and bariatric medicine as well as more than 30 years of professional experience, Dr. Manohar Jethani provides family care as well as basic urgent care at Health Stop.

Injectable dermal fillers smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, a cosmetic laser system erases acne scarring, and body-contouring treatments provide an alternative to invasive liposuction procedures.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group is a professionally packed team of well-being warriors including experienced estheticians and physicians on the medical staff at Northwestern Memorial Hospital as well as faculty at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Seven different physicians collaborate with two clinical estheticians to create dullness-quashing skin regimes. The 30-minute, physician-supervised treatment begins with a Clarisonic cleanse, which uses sonic frequency to eliminate surface dirt and oil to prep for better product absorption. Next, your esthetician will match you with a topical treatment serum selected from an arsenal of cosmetic crime-fighting agents that address a variety of skin concerns, including oiliness, dryness, and redness. The SilkPeel system employs a mug-snuggling closed-loop vacuum to infuse the face with serum benefits, evening tone and texture without the use of crystals, other abrasive particles, or driveway gravel. Each complexion-perfecting session ends with a calming treatment mask, moisturizer, and sunscreen, leaving patients with light-reflective skin that sends damaging rays bouncing away in shame.
