The staff at Vitalogy Skincare tends to skin's health and appearance across eight dermatology locations. Medical-dermatology services cover conditions such as acne, rosacea, and hair loss; cosmetic dermatology focuses on looks with Botox and Juvéderm injections, as well as laser removal of spider veins and hair. Lasers also resurface skin or guide complexions through photorejuvenation, which diminishes the appearance of sun damage to restore younger, more vibrant looking skin. Vitalogy also tackles skin cancer with Mohs surgery—in which founding doctor Eric Adelman, DO, is a fellowship-trained physician—a precise method that quashes the cancer by carefully removing tissue layer by layer.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

In an environment reminiscent of a cozy ski lodge, Dr. Schlotter performs services ranging from breast reduction and liposuction to treatments for varicose veins. The office's vaulted ceilings, wood floors, and antique-style furniture put patients at ease like reading Little House on the Prairie while listening to the sound of churning butter.
At Dermatology Laser Center, Dr. Ana L. Rodriguez and her capable staff stay up-to-date on the latest technology and techniques to provide a variety of cosmetic and medical procedures. Each microdermabrasion treatment utilizes a Diamond Tome wand, made with actual diamond chips, to scrape and vacuum away outermost layers of skin, leaving behind less of the gritty, sandy debris caused by many microdermabrasion procedures and all sandbox-filled dinner jackets. Visages can emerge from the procedure with more evenly toned skin and fewer sunspots and blemishes.
