Seattle Wellness Programs is helmed by a team of medical professionals and wellness experts who each specialize in a different area—weight loss, natural medicine, massage therapy, and so on. They work with clients to make them look and feel younger and healthier, creating physician-directed weight loss programs as well as skin-tightening Thermage treatments, which contour the body using pulses of heat to regenerate skin's elasticity.
Well Medical Arts educates clients how to take care of themselves using the latest scientific treatments for the reversal of age-related disorders. WMA performs anti-aging treatments and provides patients with the products they need to look and feel their best.
Lemongrass, ginger, turmeric, camphor, and lime—massage therapist Michele Mecum and her staff use this quintet of soothing scents during Thai herbal massages, pairing them with rhythmic strokes to send patrons into a deeply relaxed state: Vermont. Relaxation is the driving purpose behind Michele’s massages, which she has honed over 14 years in the field. Soothing Swedish massages employ sweeping, gentle strokes to boost blood flow and flexibility. They also perform deep-tissue massages, which mute chronically achy muscles by breaking up knots in lower-layer musculature.
Boasting an expert staff led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Justin Piasecki, MD, and Lisa Davenport, RN-BSN, Harbor Plastic Surgery tightens wrinkles and beautifies mugs within their intimate boutique-style practice. Each 60-minute treatment begins with a complimentary cosmetic consultation to determine if the minimally invasive procedure is right for each patient’s crevice-filling needs. Crows' feet, frown folds, and Father Time’s tic-tac-toe games will quickly retreat from facial trenches after an injection of Botox or Dysport––both of which temporarily paralyze the muscles, reducing the unsightly lines that repetitive muscle movement can cause. About two to seven days following injection, countenances emanate smoother rays for three to six months, freeing even the most diligent brows from evidence of past feats of furrowing strength.
At the helm of Seattle Medical Aesthetics are Drs. Susan Petcoff and Lynne Haspedis, who have both been practicing medicine in Seattle since 1988. Both board-certified physicians also come from backgrounds in obstetrics and gynecology, making them particularly qualified to address the concerns of women who flock to the center for anti-aging treatments. Skin-smoothing injections of Botox and Juvéderm are a center specialty, as are prescription-grade chemical peels and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments that do everything from correcting uneven pigmentation and restricting hair growth to helping skin reminisce about its disco-dancing days. Licensed aesthetician Darla Green is also on hand to recommend products by SkinCeuticals, ViDerm, and Glytone, and to share tips she learned while working as a makeup artist for film and TV.
With 25 years of professional practice, board-certified nurse practitioner Margaret L. Larson recently expanded Larson Family Medicine & Medical Aesthetics to include cosmetic procedures performed in a medically sound environment. Margaret and the rest of the licensed staff smooth away wrinkles with injections of Botox and Juvéderm and improve epidermal appearances with laser devices developed by Alma Lasers. Patients can also visit the center for laser hair reduction, skin rejuvenation, skin-tightening and resurfacing treatments, and varicose- and spider-vein removal.
Larson Family Medicine & Medical Aesthetics recommends Metagenics products to optimize the body's natural repair systems. The cutting-edge company's nutritional supplements promote health more effectively than eating an apple one day or adding bits of a Men's Health magazine to a protein smoothie.
