The licensed body sculptors at Essential Body Contours help to smooth puckered stretches of cellulite with soothing FDA-approved Endermologie Lipomassage treatments. During each 40-minute treatment, a skilled technician employs the suction and massage capabilities of a mechanical module designed to boost lymphatic flow and circulation and tickle stubborn fat cells into releasing their precious lipids. Though most patients require at least 3–10 treatments for optimal results, local blood and lymph flow may increase up to 400% and skin-firming collagen production may improve up to 100% after a single procedure. As patients relax in the comfort of their specially designed Endermowear bodysuit, the healing strokes of the robo-treatment evoke a feeling similar to a deep therapeutic massage or a warm hug from a vacuum cleaner.
The Body Cleansing and Detoxification Center, LLC, is not a safe place for toxins. The center's cadre of certified cleansing consultants administers a range of services—including seasonal and cellular cleanses—on their ceaseless mission to inspire holistic wellness by evicting pernicious elements from the body. Their arsenal also includes mechanical devices and Zerona laser body-slimming treatments, which, much like an elevator ride with a fire breather, quickly burns away excess fat.
After more than 30 years as a registered nurse, Karin Johnson decided that she wanted to continue helping people, but in a new way. She then became intrigued by Chinese medicine, and later founded AcuSource Healing as a way to treat patients with a more personal, holistic approach. The center?s diverse staff??which includes an occupational therapist, nutritionist, and licensed massage therapist??makes pain a distant memory with services such as cupping, acupuncture, sotai, and foot reflexology. Through hair mineral analysis, the team can find the presence of heavy metals that can make bodies feel sluggish and convince brains that they enjoy Black Sabbath. Microlight rejuvenation, meanwhile, boosts collagen production and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
Rays of sunlight peer through windows, illuminating muted, earth-toned walls as visitors are escorted to their happy places by zen meditation music and European-style spa treatments. Such scenes are the norm at Sunflower Day Spa, where aestheticians focus primarily on skincare and body-slimming treatments customized to each client's needs. The menu runs the gamut of spa services that focus on relaxation and beautification, including a European facial with a skin analysis and an array of massages such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and Japanese hot-stone. Sunflower's Italian-made EMS machines help clients fit into an old pair of favorite jeans or a dollhouse guest room by evicting the body's most stubborn fat deposits.
Since opening his own medical practice in 1986, Dr. Joseph S. Cervone has seen it all, from minor blemishes to serious skincare concerns. But what surprised the doctor most was the confidence and increased self-esteem his patients presented after he performed a cosmetic procedure for them.
This unexpected discovery led Dr. Cervone to begin slowly incorporating more nonsurgical procedures into his practice, with the goal of helping his clients feel even more satisfied and secure about their appearances. Eventually, he become the medical director of Concierge Skin Care, and since then Dr. Cervone and his friendly staff have helped restore youthful complexions with a range of aesthetic treatments ranging from microdermabrasion to laser hair removal and Botox injections.
The office can also help patients achieve more dramatic results with advanced procedures involving the latest ultrasound technology from VASER Shape, the skin-tightening powers of a Titan or Genesis laser, or spider-vein removal.
After her residency at Columbia University, Dr. Marion Shapiro earned her certificate from France's French Society of Mesotherapy. Since opening her own clinic in 2002, Dr. Shapiro has been profiled in Self, Elle, and Marie Claire magazines, as well as on TV news programs. Like the wheel, mesotherapy was invented in 1952. It refers to the practice of tackling a host of cosmetic symptoms—including excess fat or cellulite, hair loss, scars, and wrinkle—with specialized medical injections. In addition to mesotherapy face-lifts, Dr. Shapiro and her staff can also make mugs look younger with peels, fillers, and laser therapy. Body contouring, diet programs, and laser hair-removal procedures are available to match bodies to their freshly refreshed faces.
