Couture Laser & Skin’s founder and director, Dr. Anshul Gambhir, received his medical training at the renowned Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. With his team of aestheticians, he has performed more than 100,000 nonsurgical, cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, ranging from chemical peels to permanent makeup. To diminish wrinkles, he uses dermal fillers or CO2 lasers that resurface skin as they tighten it, and micro-incision liposuction allows him to sculpt and contour bodies without a single surgical stitch or shrink ray. He also harnesses the radiofrequency energy of the Thermage device and uses it to rebuild and remodel collagen, and he scares away unwanted hair with FDA-approved lasers.

The dedicated instructors at Kids Love Martial Arts teach children the techniques of self-defense styles such as karate and tang soo do. But they are just as focused on imparting lessons on discipline, focus, and confidence. The studio's websites shares stories of youngsters who were constantly distracted in school or picked on by their peers. The teachers always prescribe the same medicine: a few weeks in Kids Love Martial Arts classes. The physical aspect of the training engages the youthful participants, but it's the less tangible results that can help them positively channel their energy and confidently stare down the karate-practicing monster under the bed.

The family dental team at Matthews Dental Associates, enhancing smiles since 1975, eschews wire braces in favor of Invisalign trays to guide teeth toward healthier, more aesthetic positions. Wearers rotate through of series of clear plastic trays that nudge teeth toward their optimal position while remaining virtually undetectable, much like a snowman's milk moustache. After an initial consultation and examination ensures candidacy for treatment, panoramic x-rays and impressions work in tandem with 3-D computer technology to design and crafts trays. During treatment, which can last up to two years, wearers graduate to a new set about every two weeks and can remove the trays at any time in order to brush, eat, or gnaw crayons.
