In his 20 years of clinical practice, Deer Park Weight Loss Centers' Dr. Reffell has learned that no single treatment works for every patient in the journey toward losing weight. He knows that each person's body and goals are different, so, while he focuses on helping people lose weight, he uses a variety of methodologies. He employs noninvasive technologies, including laser, light, and heat systems, to help patients treat specific problem areas. To help them make lasting lifestyle changes, he coaches his clients with nutritionally sound diets and exercise regimens. He also treats people at the hormonal level, striving to recalibrate those compounds in the body that, in some cases, prevent people from losing weight, much like a clingy conjoined twin.
Laser Med Spa's aestheticians beautify and heal clients using advanced products and technology.

American Photon Lipo Centers’ physician-supervised staff offers noninvasive alternatives to liposuction and facelifts. Using BioSlim technology's red light, they can shrink fat cells during BioSculpt treatments or tighten skin during BioLift and BioRejuv treatments.

Housed inside the offices of a renowned facial plastic surgeon, the aestheticians at True Skin Care Center were hand-selected to form an elite team, whose access to results-driven skincare tools, methods, and products upgrades clients' spa visits into transformative experiences. All of the staff members have undergone rigorous academic training and held careers in high-end spas, yet their resumés impress with different feats—Terri has co-authored a book on her work and founded an education program for her fellow aestheticians, whereas Kaitlin specializes in precision lasering. Joanie draws from past jobs as a model and makeup artist to augment her procedures, Gigi and Jennifer boasts an expertise in exfoliating services.
The team administers a broad range of treatments, from chemical peels to firming ultrasound sessions. To prep for a special event, clients can recline for an Intraceuticals oxygen facial, whose black-cherry-scented formula helps polish complexions to a firm and healthy glow. Laser hair removal helps clients achieve smooth skin, and microdermabrasion buffs away dead cells to reveal brighter complexions and previously undiscovered dimples. Other offerings include waxing, makeup applications and comprehensive bridal packages. Regardless of its type, however, each appointment begins with a thorough client consultation, which identifies both current and past concerns before devising a new skincare regimen.
