Dr. David Ikudayisi, medical director of Glory MedClinic LLC, has studied under eminent practitioners of spot fat reduction, gleaning methods such as lipotherapy, lipodissolve, and mesotherapy. He also goes a step further, helping clients slim down with lifestyle advice, appetite suppressants, and vitamin injections. At his three clinics, Dr. Ikudayisi has helped more than 30,000 patients since getting into the weight-loss game with his variety of customized weight-loss programs. But his staff also helps clients beautify the rest of their bodies with aesthetic services such as chemical peels, which combat the signs of aging so that your mother can truly feel like you will always be her baby.
Clients don't need an appointment at Granite Diagnostic Laboratories. At 10 locations across the west coast of Florida, lab technicians administer dozens of in-house and reference tests for walk-in visitors. From a single drawing of blood, they can screen for diseases or check levels of cholesterol, growth hormones, and most everything else that powers the body's internal combustion engines. The technicians work thoroughly and efficiently, and hand over results within a few days.
Salon Ultima pampers clients from scalp to toe with its indulgent spa services.

Guests may also revamp their complexions with microdermabrasion or request a permanent-makeup consultation with a licensed cosmetologist.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
The walls are cocoa-colored, the music is soft, and the massage table is adjustable for those who can not lay flat but would love to enjoy a massage. Close your eyes and relax: you're forgiven for falling asleep.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
I was in the nursing field for about 20 years. I wanted to do something more rewarding. I wanted a relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of life.
