Since completing his residency in ophthalmology at Henry Ford Health Sciences Center in 1994 and a refractive surgery fellowship at the Kresge Eye Institute in Detroit in 1995, Dr. Steven Vale has performed more than 26,000 laser vision-correction surgeries. Using a pair of cutting-edge excimer lasers—the Nidek EC-5000 and the VISX Star S4—Dr. Vale treats the widest possible range of vision imperfections, including astigmatism. Acuity Laser Eye & Vision Center's modern facilities were designed specifically for LASIK and other refractive procedures and include two environmentally controlled surgical suites that make it the vision center of choice for most farsighted snowmen.
Massage therapists, fitness instructors, and nutritional consultants join forces at Pocono Body Wellness Studio to promote holistic health in all its forms. Therapists de-stress musculature with acupuncture and numerous massage modalities, and ear-candling sessions can help relieve tension in sinuses, which cannot be massaged. Elsewhere in the studio, resident aestheticians further enhance bodies with facials, waxes, and mani-pedis. The staff makes frequent contributions to charities, donating 5% of the proceeds of every massage package they book to a children's hospital in Philadelphia.
The founder and director of Dermatology Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania, Dr. Christopher A. Snyder, leads an aesthetically trained staff in revising clients' guises via cosmetic, medical, and surgical care. Traditional dermatology services can unburden bodies suffering from embarrassing conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and whipped cream leftover from the office pie toss, as well as treating the skin-based symptoms of cancer and infections. Visages travel back in time with medi-spa treatments, including chemical peels, facials, and waxing, alongside injectibles that attempt to return façades to their factory-issued forms. Borrowing from the technology of every sci-fi movie, laser treatments can eradicate unwanted hair, reverse scarring and imperfections, and entertain lackadaisical housecats
The experts at Sonostics are pioneers in vibromyography, a technology developed at Binghamton University that transforms muscle vibration into information. Their MyoWave process uses sensors and preinstalled software to scan the knees and joints to root out various muscle imbalances, allowing the staff to customize an exercise regimen that patients can follow on their own or in consultation with their own trainer or physical therapist. Staff provide followup appointments between assessments in order to gauge the effectiveness of the exercise program.
Owner and artistic director Joseph Bordonaro has a full repertoire of experience training with Vidal Sassoon, Frederic Fekkai, Wella, Tigi, and Nick Arrojo. His continuing education recently earned him and his team certifications as Wella Colors of the World colorists, as well as his specialization in haircutting techniques. His philosophy for continuously expanding one’s skill set is followed by his staff of stylists, massage therapists, and nail technicians. They keep up-to-date on techniques such as advanced multi-color foil highlights, hot-stone massages, and artistic nail designs.
Tonie Chicchi and Adele Lukachek performed clinical research to develop new laser technologies to help their clients rehabilitate from strokes, recover from athletic injuries, and feel better about how they look. In addition to using proprietary lasers to help erase signs of aging from the face and banish fat from the body, they also foster whole-body wellness by recommending nutritional supplements and sending greeting cards to under-appreciated organs.
