Nearly a quarter of a century of experience has taught Dr. Robb Fishman that chiropractic treatments should involve the muscles as well as the spine. He sees bones and soft tissue as a system that work in tandem, and his gentle spinal adjustments incorporate massage techniques to ease out tension as well as nudge misaligned discs back into place.
Body-contouring sessions at The Pittsburgh Aesthetic Laser Lipo Center begin when a technician straps a set of Lapex BCS LaserLipo paddles onto problem areas such as the belly, thighs, or arms. These paddles emit a low-level laser energy that breaks down fat cell membranes over the course of 40 minutes. Next, patients stand on a whole-body vibration platform for 10 minutes to help purge the expelled fatty acids from the body. The clinic staff recommends 8–12 treatments, along with maintaining a healthy diet, active lifestyle, and perfect wink, for optimal results.
For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it’s not enough to simply treat patients’ skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa’s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they’re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers—along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches—to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.
From the outside, Resolutions Med Spa has the look of a rural country house––a quality that continues inside to its pastel-hued walls, wood accents, and plush, high-backed pedicure sofas. Amid these cozy accents, guests may partake in a mélange of beautification services, ranging from microdermabrasion and chemical peels to waxing and makeup consultations. The spa also employs a licensed massage therapist who can ease chronic tension with hot-stone therapy and restorative deep-tissue bodywork.
