As a woman, Jennifer Mignano understands the popular desire to have nice skin, but as a former educator at the International Dermal Institute, she knows that it doesn?t come easily. That?s why all of her spa?s facials include the most up-to-date techniques, as well as mini skincare lessons to help clients maintain their glowing complexions between appointments.
Using Skin Fitness Therapy and PCA products, Jennifer and her staff can buff tired skin with exfoliating facials or reverse the signs of aging with collagen peels infused with natural fruit acids. To complement these medical-grade treatments, Jennifer and her staff are also trained and certified in wielding IPL lasers to reinvigorate complexions or remove unwanted hair from bodies and the family dog?s favorite chair.
The technicians at Sun Kissed Tanning understand the importance of radiant skin. They know that it not only looks good, but also sends a clear message that you are healthy and definitely don't live in a secret lair miles below the city. That's why they do everything in their power to give you a beach-ready glow, whether you prefer a traditional tanning booth or a UV-free VersaSpa spray station. If both of the above sound appealing, chat with a consultant to discover more about the benefits of the spa's various tanning methods.
As a welcoming gesture, Daymara Navarrete and her staff of licensed aestheticians press a cup of wine, tea, or coffee into the hands of arriving guests. The team fosters a familial bond with clients during services ranging from therapeutic wraps and massages to cuts, styles, and hair texturing. Each staff member offers experience in a particular area and hones his or her skills through continual training on new products, such as Gelish polish, or through wagers that they can get a bespectacled mannequin asked to prom. As they execute their pampering services, most of which call upon OPI products, staff members navigate between rows of pedicure chairs and black leather-backed salon chairs. Their busy hands release a symphony of soft sounds that reverberates off dark wood accents and sea-green walls as floral arrangements nod their colorful heads in time.

On August 21, 2010, the offices of EliteHealth.MD LLC got a disturbing call. One of their patients had fractured a vertebra during a dive into too-shallow water and was now paralyzed below the chest. Things were further complicated by her location, as a visit to her family in the Bahamas had put her more than 300 miles from Florida. But that didn't stop Dr. Steven Schnur and his team from immediately springing into action to help her. An air ambulance lifted her to Ryder Trauma Center in Florida, where the chairman of the University of Miami's neurological-surgery department led a medical team to repair the break in her spine.
This quick, effective response demonstrates the scope and resources of EliteHealth, an international network of physicians coordinated by Drs. Schnur and Perry Krichmar. Though EliteHealth's team ably handles emergency situations like this one, its focus lies in preventive medicine. Three levels of membership grant patients access to a suite of medical services, screenings, and diagnostics scheduled throughout the year. These range from heart scans to Elite|Fit Forever, a gene-decoding and metabolic-testing program that develops nutrition and exercise recommendations based on each patient's genetics. Members also qualify for the EliteHealth Annual Wellness Exam, which monitors patients for early indicators of common degenerative diseases such as cancer.
To further facilitate this approach to ongoing integrative care, EliteHealth operates locations within the United States and beyond. The myEliteHealth online portal helps patients keep in touch with their physicians without forcing them to shout into a really long stethoscope.
