At Zerona of Rhode Island, Doctor of Chiropractic Jeffrey Newman works to smooth silhouettes noninvasively with cold-laser Zerona treatments, recently featured on The Doctors. During 40-minute sessions, which are generally spaced within 72 hours of one another, low-light lasers glide over patients' waists, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue. The body then absorbs and expels the excess lipids, allowing patients to resume their normal activities immediately. Healthy eating habits and avoidance of caffeine, alcohol, and falling pianos help to maximize results. See the office's FAQ section for more details.
Hope Laser Center’s secret to their fast, painless, and effective med spa treatments is the industry-trusted Cynosure laser. The staff wields this device's hand piece for myriad aesthetic treatments, including laser hair removal, facial treatments, and spider-vein reduction. The noninvasive beams work to beautify bodies with skin-tightening treatments, and transform facial skin with microdermabrasion. This youth-enhancing service can reduce the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles, helping clients work toward becoming the next Gerber baby.
Nestled along boutique- and coffee shop-lined Hope Street, Red Water Designs' storefront stops even the most caffeinated of passersby in their tracks with a selection of eye-catching accessories. Jewelers constantly update their array of glittering semi-precious stones and hand-blown glass beads fixed in sterling silver or gold-plated metal. Style experts seek out baubles created by local designers, selling only a limited number of pieces at a time from lines such as "Inspirations" by Rhode Island designer Chrisha.
After running a reiki and reflexology booth at a health expo, Joanne Salem decided to create a permanent wellness center. She officially opened the doors to Changing Lives in 2010, and since then she has helped to reduce numerous clients' aches and stress levels through advanced healing and relaxation techniques. Joanne has experience working with all manner of people, with past clients including a woman who previously wouldn't let anyone touch her feet and another woman whose plantar fasciitis was so severe that she felt like she "was walking on rocks."
Changing Lives also regularly hosts wellness-related events and seminars, led by Joanne or a life-sized cutout of Richard Simmons.
Aesthetician Lorraine Gazzerro has been finding solutions for so-called "problem skin" for more than 20 years. A specialist in the use of advanced skin peels, LED treatments, and microdermabrasion, she brings 14 years spent performing postoperative and preoperative skincare services to her work at Skinplicity, extending her epidermal expertise to everyone from acne-ridden teens to those seeking a nonsurgical alternative to the traditional face lift. Drawing upon effective solutions from brands such as Yon-Ka, Pevonia, and Aveda, treatments run the gamut from anti-aging facials to wildflower wraps that stimulate lymphatic flow, as well as men's barbershop facials that hydrate and soften manly skin using hot towels, steam, and the occasional Gatorade dunk.
