Board-certified chiropractic physician Dr. Naveed Elahi takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain relief, disease prevention, and whole-body health at Health First Chiropractic Wellness Center. The practice specializes in chiropractic medicine, a science that aims to alleviate such common conditions as headaches and neck pain without the use of drugs, surgery, or noogies. In cases where traditional chiropractic medicine does not apply, the doctor rounds out the treatment menu with acupuncture and clinical massage therapy, two ancient modalities that can reduce anxiety and improve sleep. Furthermore, personal training and nutrition counseling help patients ward off the specter of disease in a more reliable manner than hanging garlic cloves on their treadmills.
Sunlight streams through floor-to-ceiling windows in the waiting room at Lift Laser & Body, where a trio of doctors oversees aesthetic treatments powered by cutting edge technology. These procedures range from natural-looking plastic surgery such as tummy tucks and breast enhancements to less invasive procedures. Noninvasive treatments include SkinTyte, which relies on broadband light to get clients firmer and younger looking skin. Lift Laser & Body also offers rejuvenating ProFractional laser treatments for faces that can make patrons look younger, much like not calling a MP3 player “walkman.”
At Dermalight Laser Clinics, a licensed physician oversees a highly trained staff as they utilize laser technology to treat a wide variety of dermal woes. Not content to subscribe to a one-laser-fits-all approach, they offer free consultations to their customers, reviewing medical histories and analyzing skin types, in order to pinpoint the exact tools and technologies that will garner the best results. Laser services include hair removal, spider-vein removal, and facials that target irregular pigmentation, enlarged blood vessels, and Santa beards that have been cemented on. They can also use chemical peels to remove damaged outer layers of skin, leaving the face looking tighter, smoother, and healthier in just a matter of minutes.
The clinicians at NW Laser Like Lipo know that, when it comes to weight loss, there's no substitute for diet and exercise. But they aim to augment those efforts with noninvasive, FDA-approved laser-like lipo treatments. During treatments, the team targets stubborn problem areas such as the arms, hips, and midsections, draining fat cells in a process similar to what occurs during exercise minus the profuse sweating. Afterward, the team may recommend sessions on a vibrating platform to help flush out the released contents. In addition to laser lipo, nutrition counselors customize diet plans to help cut down calories without sacrificing protein or vitamins.
At Golden Ivy Beauty Salon, hairstylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians administer high-quality beauty care with a special emphasis on personalized service. They demonstrate their devotion to this individualized approach by conducting a consultation before every session. All of Golden Ivy's staff members work for themselves as independent contractors, so they each take personal pride in the quality of their facials, manicures, and haircuts.
To the staff at Renaissance Med Spa, a client's request for facial tightening never conjures images of a surgical procedure. Instead, the lateral-thinking staff would probably envision the Inmode fractora laser—a device that glides over skin to painlessly promote collagen production and fade wrinkles, acne scars, and Sharpie-drawn goatees. The spa offers nonsurgical solutions to other skincare woes, including laser hair removal, massage, and age-fighting dermal fillers. Each treatment is performed under the supervision of Dr. Carl Cucco, and the certified staff comprises registered nurses, nurse injector specialists, licensed massage therapists, and licensed aestheticians.
