Although "LipoLaser" sounds like the work of science fiction, it's been featured in very real mediums, including The Doctors and beauty and fashion magazines. This spa's expert staffers wield the technology, helping their clients slim down without turning to crash diets or illegal ivory corsets. A gallery of before-and-after images shows success stories in the form of shrunken bellies, tightened thighs, and more defined chins.
John Hayes was an internist for many years, but it's his board certification in anti-aging medicine that comes in handy as the medical director for Physician's Rejuvenation Centers. The clinic's specialty is slowing the aging process, whether via a facial, hormone-replacement therapy, or the whiting out of a patient's date of birth. For that extra shot of vitality, Hayes and his staff also prescribe supplements and amino-acid injections.
Since opening its first center in 1999, Laser Skin & Wellness has expanded to two locations, both of which provide medical aesthetic treatments overseen by Medical Director, Gloria Hakkarainen, M.D. And to ensure each patient receives the best treatment for their concerns, a personalized consultation is performed before technicians craft a customized treatment plan, which can include medical weight loss programs, laser tattoo removal, dermal fillers, and permanent makeup treatments. Laser technicians gently remove unwanted hair with a Cutera CoolGlide laser, which keeps the skin comfortable with a built-in cooling device, or a Cutera ProWave 770 system that can banish strands on all skin types including invisible. During acne treatments, a Clear Light system releases blue-violet rays across the skin, killing bacteria deep in the pores. To further beautify complexions, Laser Skin & Wellness’ staff also employs Obagi, SkinMedica, EltaMD, and Jan Marini products.
With more than 18 years of private practice, Dr. Francee Brody and her all-female staff enhance the body’s aesthetic appeal with non-surgical medical procedures. Her extensive services include weight-loss programs, HCG, and natural and Rx appetite suppressants. She also uses facial fillers—such as Juvederm and Artefill—, tried and true injectables such as sclerotherapy for leg veins and Botox, and advanced, skin-safe laser technology. DOT laser treatments promote the production of collagen to plump up folded, crinkled skin, and IPL lasers evaporate facial capillaries, sun damage, and fine lines.
Expectant parents feel at ease in A Star Is Born 3D’s environment, which trades typical doctor's-office trappings for chic gray couches, a coffee bar, and earth tones that decorate waiting-room walls. The welcoming decor complements the center's mission to treat parents to vivid photographs of their soon-to-be-borns with ultrasound and imaging technology that goes beyond standard OB/GYN equipment. An ARDMS-registered sonographer on staff lends expertise to sessions that reveal tiny smiles or a baby's gender, which is usually able to be determined at 17 weeks. A Star Is Born 3D invites friends and family to witness the procedure in an ultrasound room that features sumptuous leather seating for 15 people and a 110-inch projector screen to view results after the coming attractions and four car commercials. The sessions can result in crisp prints, CDs, or DVDs to add to the baby book, and a GE Voluson i laptop even enables the ultrasounds to go portable for baby showers or private viewings at home.
The physician-supervised technicians at Laser Light Body Sculpting & Medspa remodel physiques using high-tech methods including laser body contouring, CoolSculpting, and laser-guided liposuction. When coupled with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, these methods can succeed in trimming inches away from lifelong problem areas such as thighs, buns, or dromedary humps. Since these services are noninvasive, patients can slim down with little to no downtime.
