Licensed massage therapist Erica Johnson makes her viewpoint clear in the name of her practice: Massage Is The Remedy. The somewhat vague and overarching nature of this statement hints at Johnson’s ability to heal a wide array of pains and injuries with her focused bodywork techniques. Guided by the gentle strokes of her Swedish massage or the firm pressures of her deep-tissue massage, sore muscles and overworked minds take a healing vacation from their daily duties. The nationally certified therapist also plies muscles with specialty modalities such as trigger-point therapy, in which she applies focused pressure to tender areas, and sports therapy, in which she swings a heated baseball bat at knots of tension.
The certified physicians of Philly Lipo Laser target fat cells with the FDA-approved Lapex 2000 BCS, whose noninvasive laser technology gradually trims away unwanted inches. Immediately after treatments, they can provide a 10-minute vibration-platform session to burn the same amount of calories as 30 minutes of exercise or two hours spent chewing gum vigorously. To complement treatments, doctors can also create a three-week exercise and nutrition program for patients to follow.
Along with Philly Lipo Laser's body contouring, its strategic partner, Morgan Chiropractic Center, administers physical adjustments and treats back injuries with a combination of medical expertise and holistic procedures.
Dr. Harold Farber's technique has been described by some as "artful poetry in motion." It could have something to do with his state-of-the-art equipment—which he uses to assess patients' health and dermal conditions—or the fact that he allays concerns by explaining his every move during treatments.
At Center for Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, he oversees a team of dermatologists who correct issues such as acne, sun damage, and signs of aging. The team follows Dr. Farber's lead by keeping abreast of the latest techniques, be it the sloughing off of dead skin cells through microdermabrasion or the illuminating of complexions with chemical peels or a steady hand with a spotlight.

Registered nurse Kathleen DeSimone and Inject Beauty’s talented team of medical professionals use nonsurgical procedures to enhance the natural beauty of patients. Armed with certified training in procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers, they work to make faces feel smooth. Eyebrows, eyelashes, and lip lines can be adorned with permanent makeup, spider veins are reduced to mere memory with sclerotherapy treatments, and mesotherapy or Lipodissolve injections target fatty areas. They also eliminate excess hair with beams from a Cutera Xeo CoolGlide laser machine.
Silver Apple Medical Spa uses nonsurgical treatments to help patients look younger and feel more beautiful. The medical staff wield lasers to remove everything from unwanted hair, to spider and varicose veins to tiny supervillains lodged deep inside pores. They also use them when trying to even out skin texture and remove scars. When they’re not harnessing laser power, the staff administer other skin-smoothing procedures—such as microdermabrasion—and they also design skincare regimens for patients to use at home.
