Each member of Medarts' staff of physicians and nurses helps clients reach their personal wellness goals, employing their cache of nutritional know-how to craft scientifically sound, custom weight-loss programs.

They're also recertified in their profession annually, much like kings.
Taryn McCracken and Hanna Gregor have been studying the science of healthy eating since college. Taryn, a committed vegan, earned her bachelor’s degree in health psychology, and while Hanna worked toward a degree in nutritional sciences at Penn State University, she coached the school’s Division I athletes on how to use healthy foods to increase performance. Together they helm Detox Lounge, a salon-inspired health center with a very simple mission: out with the bad, in with the good. That means eliminating toxins and taking in antioxidants.
A large part of their work involves True Juice Cleanses, a proprietary line of complex juices blended from fruit and superfoods that are designed to boost metabolism, eliminate fats, and detoxify the body. Users can graduate to 500-calorie Master Weight-Loss Cleanses, or supplement their progress with detoxifying spa treatments.

He can also forge svelte physiques with comprehensive mommy makeovers, designed to restore new mothers' post-pregnancy bodies to the state they were in before babies filled them with gaudy futons. Spider-vein therapy and skincare treatments such as microdermabrasion and Botox round out the center's slate of aesthetic services.

Whether they’re looking to permanently eliminate body hair or lift away fine lines and wrinkles, every Avalon client receive a customized treatment plan tailored to their individual needs and skin type. Dr. Tirgari might call upon laser technologies to combat acne and unwanted hair, or use medical-grade skin treatments, such as salicylic acid or Jessner peels, to smooth uneven skin textures. FDA-approved VelaShape treatments work to contour the body, reducing dimpling caused by cellulite or excessive impersonations of Mario Lopez, while shots of Botox and Juvederm smooth wrinkles confined to the forehead.
