Dr. Benjamin Chun claims a passion for healthcare that was ingrained in his mentality since childhood. As the current leader of the ReJeneSys Med Spa, Dr. Chun oversees a staff that includes a fellow ophthalmologist and a team of aesthetic technicians who provide medical as well as cosmetic care that ranges from basic examinations to surgery. The center also provides noninvasive aesthetic treatments, including a Palomar StarLux intense pulsed light platform that can remove hair and reduce the appearance of unseemly blemishes such as acne scars, and stretch marks.
Ideal Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery's offices, associated with Straka & Mcquone, Inc., are all designed to make patients feel comfortable and safe. Yale graduate and board-certified surgeon Dr. Paul Leong performs all facial treatments, except for laser hair removal, which is done by a trained technician and supervised by Leong. Each option includes a full, personal consultation with Dr. Leong to discuss treatment options and design individualized plans. Laser hair removal works over six sessions to gradually reduce hair growth, and is considerably less painful than getting dipped in hot wax and coated in feathers. The sessions may be used for underarms or any small areas—upper lip, chin, fingers, toes, or ears—but may be upgraded to a medium-sized area (such as bikini line) for an additional $59 per treatment.
Skin Beautiful's safe, gentle whitening treatment combines an LED light with a hydrogen-peroxide gel for fast whitening action that yields long-lasting results. After your treatment, you’ll also receive futuristic touch-up teeth-whitening pens to eliminate pesky gravy stains. The treatment contains twice as much hydrogen peroxide as store-bought treatments, and it works with sensitive teeth. You can expect immediate results, and, like a tiny toy clown that grows in water, your teeth will continue to whiten for 24 hours.
Highly educated trainers—each of whom has a bachelor's or master's degree in exercise science—help clients at bodyXchange fitness tone their bodies and transform their lifestyles with nutrition and exercise programs. Rows of dumbbells weighing 5–135 pounds ring the walls of the 5,000-square-foot gym, where members can swing kettlebells, push sleds, or struggle with a 550-pound tractor tire as well as pumping iron on more conventional Hammer Strength and Icarian strength-training machines. Life Fitness treadmills, stationary bikes, and other cardio equipment populate a separate theater, where wall-hung plasma TVs keep minds busy as bodies sweat and mouths hum the theme to Chariots of Fire.
Dr. Dennis Hurwitz and the team of skinsmiths at Hurwitz Center for Rejuvenation rewind face clocks to an earlier time with a dizzying array of skin-revitalizing treatments. During the doctor-supervised microdermabrasion treatment, a steady-handed aesthetician removes the outermost layer of skin, revealing a face that's as brilliant as a glow-in-the-dark copy of The Republic. The exfoliating technology can stimulate collagen production, fade fine lines and scars, even out skin tone, and give faces enough confidence to play hide-and-seek with the Invisible Man. Meanwhile, 20 units of Botox injected into the facial muscles behind crow's-feet or frown lines can calm nerve impulses, relaxing wrinkles and leaving faces smooth and sleek.
