Guests pass through a lushly landscaped patio area as they arrive for the noninvasive cosmetic treatments, including facials with red and blue LED light, body-contouring laser lipolysis sessions, or photofacials that use intense pulsed light to tighten lax skin loosened after one too many trips to the moon.

During the past five years, Dr. Phillip Milgram has used the FDA-approved PinPointe FootLaser to address the nail concerns of more than 2,200 patients. A team of NIH-funded scientists and medical professionals spent two decades developing the technology used in the laser, which carefully eradicates fungus without damaging the nail or surrounding skin. After each of the approximately 30-minute procedures, patients can immediately resume normal activities and expect their nails to grow back clear or with a french tip.
The medical director of The Institute for Aesthetic Medicine believes a beautiful appearance can be attained through noninvasive, surgery-free techniques that leave patients rejuvenated with minimal downtime. His laser and radio-frequency treatments tighten skin and cosmetic injectables reduce facial wrinkles. Susie, the aesthetician on staff, performs similarly noninvasive skincare services, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and ultrasonic pore cleansing.
The board-certified dermatologists at Goldman, Butterwick, Fitzpatrick, and Groff, Cosmetic Laser Dermatology rid bodies of unsightly cellulite with a coterie of cosmetic procedures. After a consultation identifies customer desires and problematic areas, an FDA-approved VelaShape laser works to reduce cellulite by blasting bipolar radio frequency and infrared light energy onto the selected skin surfaces. The warm light waves reduce the size of fat cells and fat chambers, gradually evening the epidermis and leveling off cellulite, rendering skinparts as smooth as a Boyz II Men CD dipped in grease. Finally, doctors tighten the treated area with a specialty vacuum and roller, paving a highway for heat energy that spurs metabolism and lymphatic drainage. Like most good naps, the sessions last one hour on average, but can vary depending on the body area or severity.
