Dr. Amjad Safvi has spent more than 15 years in the medical field focusing on vascular issues, particularly varicose and spider veins. He now oversees Advanced Vein Treatment & Cosmetic Center, where he and his caring staff treat patients to complimentary consultations before administering laser, radio-frequency, and sclerotherapy vein treatments along with a host of other aesthetic treatments. The facility’s laser collection, the high-tech cherry on its med-spa sundae, allows the staff to showcase hair-removal, anti-aging, and facial-rejuvenation treatments that round out a crowded roster that includes SkinMedica chemical peels, Botox injections, and fillers that can last up to five years.
Using the same motion-capture technology used in Lord of the Rings, Polar Express, and Avatar 2: Two Avatars, TaylorMade Performance Labs' custom club fitting lets you closely examine your golf swing, as well as see what Gollum would look like if he had your golf swing. After reflective markers are placed on strategic points of your body and on the shaft and head of your fitting club, six separate, high-speed, synchronized cameras will capture the motion of the reflectors as you swing drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, wedges, and putters—producing a dynamic 3-D image of your swing that can be viewed from any angle.

Rated 3.5 stars by Golf Digest, Deer Creek challenges links lovers with a picturesque championship course peppered with natural beauty and par-inhibiting hazards. A practice club membership bestows a body of benefits on golfers, including unlimited practice balls on the driving range, helpful for straightening out hooks, evening out slices, and knocking the rust off wrought-iron wedges.

The 18-hole course has four tees for varying skill levels and is rigorously maintained, allowing golfers to lavish between-shot attention on the course's seven scenic lakes, beautiful bent-grass greens, and 55 ball-seducing bunkers. The course is noted for its huge variety of wildflowers, perfect for a taking a calming, post-bogey sniff or presenting a bouquet to a certain special putter. All memberships last until the end of 2011.
