Triple board-certified surgeon Dr. Jan Zemplenyi of Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery—which opened in 1989—makes himself available 24/7 after every patient’s reconstructive, cosmetic, or otolaryngology surgery. He can reach for Botox injections to ward off facial wrinkles, or use a Reaction by Viora system, which combines three radio-frequency modes and a vacuum effect, to tighten skin while simultaneously spooking cellulite until it runs away. The doctor also performs noninvasive treatments such as chemical peels and laser resurfacing, and donates his services to victims of domestic violence.
No matter the source of your discomfort, Origin Holistic aims to relieve it through naturopathic medicine and holistic health care. The services here treat the whole person, focusing on overall wellness rather than targeting specific ailments. The practitioners care for the body without drugs or surgery, instead working on prevention through nutrition, exercise, detoxification treatments, and homeopathic medicine. Hormone-balancing treatments keep the body in tune to prevent fatigue, weight gain, and headaches, whereas prolotherapy and mesotherapy injection techniques treat both joint pain and skin deterioration.
Far removed from the revolving door of many health clinics, Doctor of Naturopathy Ashley D. May takes time to get to know his patients. Before administering any of his drug-free services, such as acupuncture, massage therapy, or chiropractic adjustments, he learns about patients through consultations, combing through their health history and telephoning their high-school principal. He uses this information to formulate a custom treatment to help clients overcome a full range of ailments.

Mod Skin And Body's massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians aren't the only ones who are good with their hands. Its owner actually created the repurposed barn doors that decorate the spa in their garage. They also crafted the chevron-patterned wood installation in the waiting room by hand.
The spa's rustic-chic decor includes a handcrafted pedicure bench, as well. This tufted banquette pairs with a crystal chandelier to add a dash of luxury to the pedicure station.
While indulgences for the eyes abound here, it's the spa treatments that keep clients coming back for more. These include everything from gentlemen's facials to Obagi chemical peels to makeup tutorials that use bareMinerals products.
