At Arizona Lipo Light, Doctor of Chiropractic Jeri E. Nardone, who has been serving the community for 20 years, helps patients find a long-lasting, non-surgical alternative to traditional lipo suction. The noninvasive procedure requires neither scalpels nor downtime, as it uses only LED light energy and the body?s own circulation system. LED light targets fat cells in problem areas such as the waist, hips, thighs, and arms and permeates the cell walls, allowing fatty acids to escape. The released contents are then easily burned off as energy during exercise and the emptied cells are able to shrink in size.
Brandi Nuttall, the owner of Dolce Salon & Spa, must believe that you can never have too much of a good thing. Expanding upon her first and second Dolce locations, which measure in at 12,000 and 13,000 square feet, respectively, she opened the third hub in 2007, and now there is a fourth. The 30,000-square-foot behemoth built in 2007 houses 62 styling stations, 21 spa rooms, 14 pedicure thrones, a makeup counter, a brow bar, and manicure stations. All four locations boast the same services?though at different scales?as well as men?s hair and spa treatments and bridal styling. Unlike hotels that charge extra for doorknobs and oxygen, the salons have a generous streak. They provide hairstyling services to those who donate to Locks of Love, spa services to local foster children, and hair clippings to areas affected by oil spills.
Klara Kalemkerides hails from Athens, Greece?a city known for its philosophical heritage and classical beauty. After moving to the U.S. 40 years ago, she earned multiple esthetics degrees, and transitioned to owning her own spas in the late 80s. The veteran esthetician's most recently venture is Skin Care by Klara, where she cultivates a European spa ambiance and offers cutting-edge treatments.
Her spa features Old World decor and lockers stocked with robes and slippers to encourage clients to slip into relaxation. In private chambers, estheticians beautify clients with services that range from facials to laser hair removal. They also enhance faces and dull jack-o-lanterns with Jane Iredale makeup, mineral-based products that combine sunscreen with pharmaceutical grade vitamins and antioxidants. And once clients have completed their treatments, the staff offers skincare education and product suggestions so clients can continue reaping the benefits of their beauty treatments at home.
Created by renowned fitness expert Jaime Brenkus, the man behind the 8 Minute Abs workout videos, the Slim & Fit approach to wellness is much more than a diet. Certified Slim Coaches and Fit Trainers helm weekly weigh-ins and exercise sessions, slinging encouragement that’s grounded in their commitment to cultivating permanent behavioral change. Fueled by a passion to help others achieve their goals, Cathy Lombardo, along with her husband Chris, decided to bring Brenkus’s philosophy to their community. After cutting the ribbon, a ceremony that Brenkus himself attended, Cathy got busy putting her experience as an all-American track-and-field athlete to use guiding others toward overall well-being.
In addition to the hunger-curbing six meals a day that participants enjoy on the 4-2 Slim Plan, exercisers burn calories during Brenkus's Fitness Fusion workout via resistance, cardio, and strength training. The system's patented portion-control plate demonstrates the appropriate amount of food to eat or store in second stomachs for the approaching winter months.
At Total Rejuvenation Center, certified acupuncturist, acupressurist, and licensed massage therapist Victoria Mogilner helps visitors lead more balanced lives. Drawing on more than 30 years of experience?including training in Tibetan medicine under Dr. Dolma, a personal physician to the Dalai Lama?she strives to elevate her clients to "higher levels of health, awareness, and being." She works to reduce clients? stress during reiki healing treatments, which involve the manipulation of bodily energies, or while administering classic massages. Her acupuncture and acupressure sessions target specific spots with small, sterile needles or the hands, aiming to eliminate blockages of energy. Mogilner also specializes in facial-rejuvenation services, employing acupuncture and microcurrents to alleviate the wrinkles and layers of milk moustaches built up over time.

Using BioSlim technology's red light, they can shrink fat cells during BioSculpt treatments or tighten skin during BioLift and BioRejuv treatments. The FDA-approved treatments yield similar results to their surgical equals, and they do so without the threat of scars, downtime, or hospital-room neighbors who lie awake plotting to steal your jello.
