Ginger Martin joins a team of experienced Aveda and Paul Mitchell stylists at Little Flower Day Spa, a full-service hair salon and a rejuvenation and relaxation haven. The team pampers guests with skincare and bodycare in five different treatment rooms. Its services range from microdermabrasion treatments and enzyme peels to intense pulsed-light skin-rejuvenation treatments and shellac manicures. Additionally, medical weight-loss management programs use lipotropic B12 injections to help clients lose weight, boost energy, and use “lipotropic” in a sentence at least once today.
Dual board-certified Dr. Victor Mendoza combines traditional weight-management supplements with new-age laser treatments to help clients not only shed fat, but also remedy internal ailments such as fatigue or insomnia. The staff tailors each treatment program with preliminary tests that detect the hormone and toxin levels in each patient’s body, which helps determine whether their issues come from environmental forces or simply eating too many pennies. To treat the moodiness, memory loss, and weight gain that comes with age, the spa administers health-bolstering doses of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to heal bodies from the inside out. Dr. Mendoza boosts his regimens’ effects with Zerona body-contouring treatments, which use an FDA-cleared laser system to help noninvasively remove fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Lifestyle makeovers go even further with Fountain of Youth Medical Spa’s other services, such as laser hair removal, chemical peels, and beauty injections.
Bernadine Tillman was inspired to pursue her colon hydrotherapy certification out of a desire to rescue a friend's failing health. After the success of her healing efforts, Bernadine expanded her business to encompass other cleansing technologies as well as body-sculpting services. Supplementing the detoxification work of hydrotherapy's ionized, antioxidant, liquid water, the BioCleanse foot bath pulls toxins out through the soles, and an infrared sauna promotes purification through sweating. Body-sculpting treatments draw upon the noninvasive Lipo-Ex, which shrinks fat cells with radio waves, and the VibaBody Slimmer, whose rollicking platform stimulates muscles and trains Elvis impersonators.
What began as Anita Gibson's struggling, two-person family business has evolved into Advanced Weight Loss Clinics, an organization with 17 corporately owned clinics and 3 franchise locations spread throughout the southeastern United States. Each center's team of doctors and weight-loss specialists encourages clients to win a similarly daunting battle by creating personalized plans for success. The program incorporates vitamins, supplements, and appetite suppressants with a low-calorie, low-fat meal plan that discourages using soft-serve ice cream as toothpaste.
Dr. Elizabeth Owings brings more than two decades of experience to every waistline she tailors with laser liposuction and every complexion she beautifies with laser skin-resurfacing. At Azia Medical Spa, she's joined by a team of surgeons, nurses, and aestheticians dedicated to improving appearances with a wide array of rejuvenating procedures, both surgical and noninvasive. Massages drive away tension with Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu techniques, while hormone injections help restore energy levels in men and women alike.
MiBella Wellness Center's medical director, Dr. Mia T. Cowan, revealed two important facts in a Birmingham Business Journal interview—that her guiding principle in business is to always be respectful to others and that if she could have any super power, it would be x-ray vision. Dr. Cowan helps patients improve their health through diet programs and vitamin injections. Additional cosmetic procedures, such as SmartLipo, result in figures svelte enough to shimmy into packed elevators or tuck behind trees during hide-and-seek.
