With acute awareness of the physical, aesthetic, and energetic changes that accompany aging, the staff of EC Medical Group aims to reunite clients with their younger selves. HCG injections work in tandem with low-calorie diets custom-built for each client, helping to dissolve weight gained from slowed metabolism. Medical aesthetic treatments employ modern technologies that range from microdermabrasion and dermal fillers to lasers that diminish age spots and glide over hickeys without judgment. EC's trained technicians address internal fluctuations as well, performing extensive medical consultations in order to design regimens of natural hormone-replacement therapy.
Aesthetician and Skin Boutique founder Danielle Sladek wants to follow her clients home. She won?t try to climb into their cars, but she and her team of continually educated skin therapists make sure that every customer leaves understanding how best to treat their skin type between spa visits. During face-centric treatments, the spa's weapons of choice are Dermalogica products, which are made in the United States, never tested on animals, and won't attract bears with their scent. Past the spa?s glitzy chandeliers, plum-colored accents, and ornate wallpaper, guests relax in private treatment rooms as staff pamper their skin with both classic and high-tech procedures.
Salon Serene owner Serena Seaton boasts 18 years of hairstyling experience and helms a staff consisting of an aesthetician, massage therapist, manicurist, and several hairstylists. The team offers a full menu of hair services, including Featherlocks extensions and haircuts for women, men, and children. Along with hair services, the salon professionals perform facials, nailcare, and massage therapy; their hair-removal services implement gentle techniques instead of attempting to duct-tape customers to a ceiling to extract unwanted hair from its roots.
At Love Your Skin By Hope, aesthetician Hope Acuna personalizes each skincare service with carefully selected products. Pretreatment consultations help Hope to tailor cleansing facials to each individual's skin type, and a complimentary patch test checks for allergies to looking pretty before every chemical peel.
The decor at W Salon and Spa—curled chandeliers, furniture upholstered with monochrome prints, and antique-looking wooden bureaus at each styling station—evokes an Enlightenment-era salon steeped in serenity. The literary setting is appropriate since the staff views the venue as a sanctum for the self, where guests can sink into relaxed introspection. With a team that specializes in a number of fields, the spa addresses a sweeping spectrum of services to facilitate such pampered meditation.
A licensed cosmetologist primps complexions with makeup applications and eyelash extensions, and a certified massage therapist calls upon five modalities to put physiques at ease more effectively than a soothing impression of Morgan Freeman narrating a documentary about sloths. Hair- and skincare treatments benefit from Unite and Sonya Dakar products, respectively.
On the spa's medical side, technicians combat wrinkles with Botox injections and curtail unwanted hair growth with carefully aimed laser treatments. The beauticians also host spa parties, accommodating wedding groups and celebrations for expectant mothers as well as birthdays.
While hormones are famous for being the root cause behind most adolescent anguish, at Progressive Health & Wellness, the team focuses on the medical maladies they can cause. Dr. Prakash K. Bhatia, one of the two doctors that helm the clinic, specializes in bio-identical hormone-replacement therapy, which neutralizes symptoms of hormone imbalance from depression to hair loss and weight gain. The staff can also catalyze slimdowns with alternative methods, including recommending diet and exercise regimens and prescribing appetite suppressants. Additionally, they tend to physiques with primary-care appointments, boost patients' energy levels and immune systems with B12 shots, and offer aesthetic treatments such as wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections, laser hair removal, and chemical peels.
