Advanced Allergy Centers of New England’s medical experts zero in on irritants via contemporary equipment that safely employs noninvasive, holistic techniques. Initial visits last about an hour and begin by cuffing wrists with a bracelet that emits digital signals emulating more than 160,000 allergens. Common mimicked irritants released from the band include shellfish, latex, food additives, pet dander, and car alarms. The system records bodily reactions to each faux-irritant and tags substances that caused distress. Patients select the most vexing allergy for about 30-minute treatments, during which professionals unleash the chosen stressor while simultaneously enlisting an artho-stim instrument––a low-level laser––to apply positive stimuli to specific appendages. Pleasant feelings spur the brain to churn out euphoria-inducing chemicals that reprogram bodies to keep their cool when encountering real-world allergens or MMA champions. Some patrons procure long-term results within the first few treatments, but up to 12 may be needed to completely conquer symptoms, such as rashes, fatigue, wheezing, and headaches.
Mitchell Wachtel, a doctor of podiatric medicine, has devoted his practice to treating medical and cosmetic imperfections of the foot. Dr. Wachtel's areas of expertise include diabetic and pediatric care, addressing foot issues that arise from poor circulation or improper biomechanics with custom orthotics that prevent long-term damage. Heel pain, whether it arises from plantar fasciitis, arthritis, or stress fractures, is another of Dr. Wachtel's specialties, and he relieves pain by prescribing specialized shoes, performing laser therapy, or imbuing patients with the power of flight. He also uses advanced lasers to treat heel pain and pain caused by Achilles tendonitis.
Dr. Martin E. Cutler’s more than 30 year career is defined by his mastery of new technology. In the ‘70s, he was one of the first area doctors to offer no-stitch cataract lens replacement. Today, he helps patients reduce their dependence on glasses with LASIK and makes reading glasses obsolete with conductive keratoplasty, the first FDA-approved procedure that sharpens one’s up-close vision and makes Moby Dick easier to understand.
Alongside Dr. Cutler’s opthalmology center stands a medical spa staffed by licensed aestheticians. With the aid of the Palomar StarLux system, they harness the power of intense pulse light to oust unwanted fuzz from anywhere on the body. They also pair facials with botanical Nelly de Vuyst products and deep-clean pores with PCA chemical peels, and offer free skin analyses to help patients find the best course of treatment or the best way to flaunt a Jay Leno–shaped birthmark.
Across Daly Foot Care’s three locations, Drs. Albert and Jack Daly draw from more than a decade of experience to treat all types of podiatric issues—from toenail fungus and warts to heel pain and sports injuries. They also design custom orthotic inserts that fully support the unique shape of each foot while walking, exercising, or stomping grapes in a bathtub.
