The licensed nurses, laser technicians, and aestheticians at Metropolitan Cosmetic Laser Center are certainly skilled on their own, but they still work with a safety net in the form of the physician who owns the practice. Together, they administer laser-based procedures, including skin rejuvenation and vein, hair, and tattoo removal. They also perform Restylane and Dysport injections that help soften facial wrinkles, leaving skin smoother than a newborn beach ball.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Dr. Thomas Hobbs, Doctor of Chiropractic Vivian Carbone-Hobbs, and the staff at Power-Med harness FDA-cleared Zerona cold lasers to noninvasively slim male and female physiques. Technicians begin by positioning the module's four prongs along the waistline, hips, or thighs, bathing them in light that releases fat from subcutaneous cells without disturbing surrounding tissues or waking inner tigers. The liquefied lipids are then swallowed by the lymphatic system and expelled through natural processes, leaving behind shapelier contours and toned limbs. The gentle 40-minute procedure requires no anesthesia and no recovery time, so patients may immediately return to normal activities, such as work, working out, and working out the kinks to their time-traveling toilet. To optimize the sculpting of their silhouettes, patients should schedule three sessions each week and stay active throughout the course of treatment.

At Island Tan’s three locations, clients can achieve an all-over bronze through the sunless medium of their choice. The staffers at all three spaces aid customers in choosing one of five levels of UV-tanning beds—including high-pressure and standup beds—and the accompanying lotions best suited to their skin types. Some locations boast UV-free tanning options in Mystic Tan booths or airbrush spray-tanning stations that darken hides with Norvell solutions. They also book red-light therapy sessions, which are designed to fade stretch marks and reduce fine lines formed from trying to win staring contests with the sun.
At Breakthrough Medical Weight Loss, genes can no longer be used as the scapegoat for failed attempts at weight loss. Bloodwork analysis helps staff customize a diet plan based on any patient’s genetics, helping them to finally decipher why some foods cause them to gain weight and why others inspire them to perform the hokey pokey after eating. Other routes to health include a prescription-based program and the hCG weight-loss program, during which patients receive injections of a fat-burning hormone that depletes unwanted lipid stores. They also specialize in post-pregnancy weight-loss programs, bridal weight-loss programs, and bio-identical hormone treatments.
