When not in her office at Great Neck Medical Spa, board-certified physician Deborah Marciano is likely attending a medical conference, seminar, or workshop. Her commitment to continuing education embodies her simple goal: to help her clients look and feel better. To this end, the doctor specializes in both surgical and noninvasive treatments for slimming silhouettes, removing hair, and rejuvenating skin. Depending on her clients' aesthetic objectives, she might use the SmartLipo Triplex system to oust unwanted fat or the Elite MPX to permanently remove unwanted hairs.
Armed with organic supplements and sophisticated detox systems, the licensed physicians, dieticians, and counselors at Harvard Organic Weight Loss Program steer visitors on the path to a slimmer silhouette with a personalized plan for each client. After a one-on-one interview, the professionals draw up regimens of botanical- and nutrient-based detox supplements, and offer weight-loss advice, such as how to commit to a diet plan, the value of regular exercise, and making sure your pockets are puppy-free before standing on a scale.
Ofra Amy Grinbaum, founder of New York Laser Aesthetics, has many years of experience with aesthetics. As a New York State–certified aesthetician, she leads a team of fellow licensed technicians who share her passions. Together, they wield such technology as an Epicare aesthetic laser, a Zerona cellulite-reduction machine, and a Biologique Recherche facial-sculpting machine designed to firm and tone complexions.
Because some of these procedures can irritate the skin, an FDA-approved Zimmer cooling system is kept on-hand to soothe treated areas with a stream of chilled air similar to one emitted by a whistling snowman. Grinbaum also has years of experience with laser techniques for toenail care, including the use of an FDA-approved laser for toenail fungus treatments.
AHS The Laser Salon's board-certified doctors and licensed aestheticians fight unwanted hair, signs of age, and unsightly veins with cosmetic lasers in an office characterized by neutral colors and antique furnishings. During laser hair-removal treatments, trained techs reduce unwanted hair with noninvasive energy pulses. Similarly, the center's spider-vein treatments employ AHS’s exacting photons to zero in on the offending red, blue, and purple veins with a prescribed dose of energy, cordoning off trouble spots from surrounding areas and laser-happy kittens. The team also rejuvenates faces with beauty injections, such as Botox and Juvéderm, photofacials, chemical peels, and custom facials.
Driven by more than just a love of healthy food, Italian-born Massimo Guerrieri draws from a background in anatomy, pharmacology, and aesthetics as he helps patrons enhance their quality of life. Over the years, Massimo created his own thermal-wrap technology, the Thermal-Wrap5000, which was featured in Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal and which he still uses today as part of his spa's weight-loss program. On select nights, he hosts free lectures that teach the benefits of using his thermal-wrap method in conjunction with a balanced Mediterranean diet.
With pads wrapped around the torso, hips, and thighs, the Thermal-Wrap5000 machine relies on gentle conductive heating to encourage perspiration, calorie burning, and the reduction of local fatty deposits. Visitors undergo treatments inside colorfully lit, wood-paneled suites crafted in Florence, which put minds at ease faster than seeing your face on a Not Wanted poster. In addition to weight loss, Vivinlinea's staff also performs spa treatments, soothing complexions with essential oils and microdermabrasion and coaxing out tension with shiatsu and hot-stone massages.
