There are no secrets at South Shore Cosmetic Surgeons. And that's because Doctors K. A. Hassan and H. Waheed believe educated clients make the best decisions and will feel most comfortable during their treatments. So for more than 20 years, the doctors have taken the time to educate clients on a variety of available treatments, from dermal fillers and Thermage treatments to rhinoplasty.
The Oceanside Wellness Center contours away inches and tightens skin during quick, noninvasive Lipo-Light sessions. During the 30-minute treatments, lasers slip past skin's outer defenses, targeting the adipose tissue that lurks just beneath. Stimulated by the light energy, these cells give up their fatty contents, which then vacate the body during normal lymphatic cycles. The treatments also strengthen the target area's collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in a tighter, more toned surface. The center also offers additional therapeutic services.
The eclectic staff of Yaffa’s Living Well provides a comprehensive repertoire of services to promote holistic wellness, helping clients become healthier and more relaxed from the inside out. Visitors in need of physical relaxation can opt to de-stress weary soul sacks with rounds of detoxifying ionic footbaths, therapeutic massages, or energizing reiki. Acupuncturists can help appease minds unable to let go of ongoing work projects or enable them to rest until they understand life as a porcupine. To unwind the kind of stress accumulated over the long term, clients can find relief from the center’s new-age staff, including a psychic, life coach, and a hypnotherapist.
Long Island Laser Hair Therapy, a member of the HairLoss.com Association, stimulates hair regrowth for men and women with laser therapy alongside DHT-blocking supplements that sustain post-treatment growth. After a digital microscopic scalp analysis, clients recline in a cozy chair as a European-developed cosmetic laser rejuvenates flagging follicles. As the laser bolsters blood flow around the scalp, hair loss ceases in 93 percent of clients. The treatment can pump up hair volume by 25 percent and foster thicker, fuller hair for hair transplant clients and shedding Koosh balls.
Dr. Gary B Feldman corrects an array of podiatry ailments with everything from custom orthotics and shoe inserts to hypnosis for pain management. He obliterates foot fungus with the FDA-approved PinPointe FootLaser system and eradicates painful and bothersome bunions, hammertoes, corns, and calluses. Although he has two offices—one in Flushing and another in Valley Stream—the doctor also makes house calls for particularly serious problems, such as that time you got your foot stuck in the cookie jar.
At Sunrise Family Footcare, Dr. Marc Schumann works to treat and prevent podiatric ailments that range from sports injuries to flat feet. Surgery, orthotic inserts sculpted to support arches, and pain-relieving cortisone injections are a few treatment options available at the practice. Schumann and his team of specialists also wield lasers, correcting ingrown toenails or fungal growth.
Inside The Physical Fitness Center, students face off against their doppelgängers, keeping tabs on their form in the wall-length mirrors that run to the ceiling from the hardwood flooring. A staff of fitness experts that includes certified yoga, Zumba, and Pilates instructors leads participants through classes that build cardiovascular health and build muscles. During Zumba classes, students move to the beat of lively international dance rhythms and the soulful sounds of an on-staff yodeler. Elsewhere, yoga students perfect their warrior poses while infusing muscles with an invigorating dose of oxygen during controlled breathing exercises. Two Pilates classes trot out options for guests who want to focus on form in pared-down mat classes, or students can work through a combination of yoga and ballet moves with the help of hand weights in Barre sessions.
