Not all fat poses a health threat, according to the wellness experts at Soza Clinic. That's why their weight-loss programs only target abnormal fat and never necessary fat reserves. They help clients trim off extra weight using all-natural supplements that boost the metabolism. At the same time, clients follow nutrient-dense meal plans designed to work with their lifestyle. This combination of diet and nutritional supplements often creates quick, noticeable results.
John Gardner, slimming coach and owner of NOLA Nutrition and Weight Loss Solutions, relies on the Ideal Protein system to help his clients eliminate fat without losing muscle. His office is equipped with a high-tech Tanita scale that measures not only pounds and ounces, but also body mass index (BMI), estimated muscle mass, and the total percentage of the body that resembles a scorpion. As clients follow the diet's recommended servings of fats, carbs, and proteins, they can keep track of the improvements in their vital stats and watch as their silhouettes shrink like wool sweaters in the dryer.
The team at MedLoss takes it as a given that each individual body is different, and that each one requires customized weight-loss plans. Their weight-loss program lets clients take advantage of monthly physician consultations to map out suggested changes in diet and exercise. Weekly visits with wellness coordinators keep participants on track and prevents coordinators from getting lonesome and drawing faces on their computer monitors. The professionals also offer other resources, including B12 injections, weekly boot-camp classes, and prescription weight-loss medication.
Though she enjoys conversing with her patients, Dr. Marilyn Pelias's ultimate goal is to get them out her office quickly. The seasoned surgeon tries to minimize the downtime following her procedures, thus enabling clients to resume work and daily activities with little hassle. Even before her treatments begin, she puts guests at ease. During pretreatment consultations, she answers questions and describes her services thoroughly to educate her patients.
Dr. Pelias's surgical treatments range from minor changes such as brow lifts and earlobe repair all the way to tummy tucks and liposuction. With the S-Lift, a faster, simpler alternative to a traditional face-lift, she reduces the appearance of sagging skin on the neck and lower face. Nonsurgical sessions often incorporate lasers, which the doctor uses for skin resurfacing, body contouring or the removal of body hair, spider veins, and tattoos that say I Love My Body Hair and Spider Veins. She also uses skincare products from Obagi to complement chemical peels and microdermabrasion sessions. Dr. Pelias doesn't do it all on her own, though. Aesthetician Shannon Eckler jumps in with the assist on all matters beauty-related, including corrective make-up, microdermabrasion, and hair-removal.
As a partner of ResearchMDs, a family practice and research facility, RMDs Aesthetics & Med Spa adds a clinical component to relaxing spa services. The physician-supervised team balances complexions with cleansing facials that employ prescription-grade products, such as the SkinMedica line. Technicians fine-tune laser treatments to treat stretch marks, scars, or dimples developed from drinking unsweetened lemonade. A licensed massage therapist addresses stress and soreness with seven different modalities, including neuromuscular-therapy sessions focused on releasing nerve pressure at trigger points.
