Certified injection specialist and BSN registered nurse Susan McIntosh noticed a pattern: friends and colleagues weren't happy with their cosmetic injection experiences. She set out to discover why, ultimately identifying a lack of expertise and bedside manner as two of the biggest problems, and decided she could do better. For more than 15 years, McIntosh has used her skills to provide medical injections to their patients, along with a helping of personal attention, warmth, and reassurances that needles aren't really that scary. She takes time to ensure patients' comfort with clear explanations of her procedures and responses to all of their questions, an approach that helps Susan tailor the procedures to each patient's needs. Susan also owns a training company that educates other nurses and physicians in injection procedures. All procedures are overseen by Dr. Brian Young, who boasts specialized training in aesthetic procedures.
Beyond refining facial features, Susan also revamps bodies with electro body sculpting. Adhesive electrodes carefully placed on trouble spots help stimulate underused muscles or unwanted fat cells, simulating the benefits of a nine-hour workout in around 90 minutes. When the treatment is over, many patients walk away with stronger muscles, less cellulite, and a detoxified physique.
At BodyLight Fat Loss Centers, which maintains a commitment to customer satisfaction, trained technicians harness the power of LED bulbs to keep their patients looking slim and youthful. Their signature treatment uses an array of LEDs to shrink fat cells and dispose of excess fat across the entire body, resulting in a slimmer figure. Other LED treatments include facial skin rejuvenation and skin tightening.
FitnessQuest's team of certified trainers and dedicated managers empowers clients of any age and fitness level to pursue healthier lives, starting with a fitness assessment that informs a custom-built program of exercise classes and nutritional guidance. Through these assessments, they create customized regimens that can help clients overcome medical issues, lose weight, or excel at sports-related tasks, such as throwing a baseball or ceremoniously hurling a water cooler at the coach from across the field after a victory. They helm a wide variety of basic and specialized classes that range from personal training, to fitness parties and corporate wellness programs.
The team also offers specialized health programs tailored to different demographics within their client base. They are also members of the Healthways SilverSneakers program, an innovative health, exercise and wellness program that helps older adults to live healthy, active lifestyles. Female-centric concerns, such as finding effective prenatal and postnatal workouts or overcoming difficulties with osteoarthritis, are addressed in their women-only exercise and nutrition program.
In addition to health regimens, the staff supplements exercise with massages to leave muscles feeling their best after long workouts.
Jane Gralewski and her staff at Premier Lipo Body Sculpting and Cambridge Family Chiropractic help enhance the body's ability to self-heal without medication or surgery. They achieve this through many of the newest chiropractic techniques. When they aren't liberating necks and backs with adjustments and corrective exercises, they help bodies to find new vigor and shapelier contours through nutritional counseling and by parking them in front of a flattering reflecting pool. They also keep three massage therapists on staff who further the spine-straightening process by lending their muscle-melting skills.
Refine - Michigan's LipoLaser Center's noninvasive laser technology disrupts the membranes of fat cells. After lasers seek out the cells in their subcutaneous hiding spots, they get the cells to give up their water, fatty acids, and lunch money. The human body then takes care of the rest, flushing out the purged waste or burning it for energy.
The body-contouring pros here recommend a series of nine treatments for optimal results, but many of their clients notice lost inches after a single session. They also preach the importance of proper hydration, good nutrition, and an active lifestyle.
