Dr. David A. Croland doesn't overlook any weapon in the fight against fat. Since 1995, the bariatric medicine physician has been designing and supervising medical weight-loss programs that can include lipotropic injections to boost metabolism and prescription appetite suppressants to cut cravings. The exact course each patient follows is determined by an initial visit, during which a staff member may run a computerized body-composition analysis, perform an EKG to check the patient's heart health, and take pictures so the patient has an alibi in case he or she is later wrongfully accused of pickpocketing the governor.
But though weight loss is the clinic's focus, it's not its only function. It's also equipped to test for food sensitivities and provide bioidentical hormone replacement to offset the effects of menopause. Dr. Croland even offers aesthetic services, and, unlike at some medical offices, the doctor performs all of them himself. These treatments range from smoothing skin with Botox, Dysport, Restylane, and Juvederm to erasing fine lines with chemical peels.

Infinite Rejuvenation Med Spa is owned and operated by Dr. Dana Giarrizzi, who administers and oversees treatments powered by products from Botox, Latisse, and Laser Facial Resurfacing from Fraxel and Clear & Brilliant. The spa brightens complexions with peels, dermal fillers, and laser treatments that also help clients reduce hair growth and the appearance of spider veins. The center also houses massage therapists, who leverage deep-tissue, Swedish, and hot-stone techniques to leave guests feeling as loose and free as a penny in a wishing fountain.
At Indian Land MedSpa, board-certified physicians Dr. Amit Shah, Dr. Nimish Patel, and Dr. Shephali Patel, along with a licensed aesthetician, brighten customers' complexions with a variety of minimally invasive procedures. They inject troublesome areas with FDA-approved Botox and Juvéderm, which combat signs of old age more effectively than hiding behind an oversize lollipop. They also perform customized facials, microdermabrasions, and chemical peels to help reduce common issues such as fine lines, acne, and uneven skin tone. The medspa is managed by Palmetto Medical Group.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Bruce Marko has a light touch for body sculpting and facial rejuvenation at Enhanced Images Medical, eschewing the "no pain, no gain" beauty philosophy. Dedicated to minimally invasive procedures, he has continually sought out new, gentle technology since he completed his surgical residency at the Orlando Regional Medical Center and saw the wrinkles Linda Hamilton developed while screaming in The Terminator. His specialty in microscopic hair transplantation represents both his technical precision—he painstakingly duplicates the original growth pattern with new follicles—and his interest in creating a natural look with small adjustments. He also takes his time with patients, who develop a safe, effective route toward their ideal look during free 20-minute conferences.
Although Dr. Marko can lift slack cheeks with a few deft incisions, he maintains a collection of five cosmetic injections to smooth facial creases with little more than a pinprick. Erchonia and Cynosure lasers help patients to sidestep weight-loss surgery and skin-rejuvenation techniques that abrade cheeks through exposure to Fran Drescher's laugh, and the lasers can also rout toenail fungus and unwanted hair.
