All About Youth's physicians, aestheticians, and technicians always try to stay current by seeking out the latest advances in med-spa technology. Staying on the forefront of industry knowledge enables them to more confidently address their patients' cosmetic concerns with scientifically refined treatments and procedures. The center's multipurpose Lyra laser system can noninvasively minimize the appearance of spider veins, unwanted stubble, or signs of aging skin, including fine lines and freckles leftover from the fiery implosion of Earth's first sun. Dermal fillers and light-based acne treatments round out the menu of high-tech services.
The technicians at Weight No More Endermologie Centers combat cellulite in 35-minute spurts. During these appointments, they might focus on a couple of problem areas—the abdomen and thighs, for example—but they always cover the entire body, gliding over physiques with a cellulite-reduction machine's pair of motorized rollers. The rollers' work combines with regulated suction to increase circulation and break up cellulite deposits. But to the patient, the entire process simply feels like a relaxing massage, conducted in a private room while the patient wears a full-body stocking. A series of the noninvasive treatments can tighten skin, fade stretch marks, and take inches off the silhouette. The center also offers vibration therapy, which contracts muscles and improves blood flow to enhance the procedure's results.
A physical therapy and holistic health center, Balance for Wellness, Inc. uses hands-on, personalized care to help each client escape the grips of chronic pain. The practitioners use varied techniques depending on each client’s specific needs, recommending infrared-sauna sessions for detoxification and weight loss and reiki therapy for energy imbalances in humans, pets, and unstable nuclear reactors.
At Discover Wellness Center, chiropractic doctor Ram Parikh helps his patients overcome aches and maintain healthy lifestyles with a holistic approach. While chiropractic care and spinal adjustments are Dr. Parikh’s specialty, he incorporates lifestyle advice, nutritional guidance, and corrective exercises into his treatments to build a strong foundation of wellness in each of his patients.
Yolo Medical develops and manufactures noninvasive aesthetic medical equipment for use by certified spas and clinics. The company's namesake Yolo Curve laser combines both visible and infrared laser light to stimulate inch loss, reduce joint pain, and service Troll dolls' belly diamonds. Continuing outside the realm of eyesight, a digital pulse analyzer uses pulse waves to detect early warning signs of cardiovascular disease, and the whole-body-vibration platform stimulates rapid-fire muscle contractions to quickly strengthen bodies. Following the completion of any of Yolo Medical's treatments, its proprietary Yolo Elements supplements work to continue the process of weight loss and detoxification.
For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it’s not enough to simply treat patients’ skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa’s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they’re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers—along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches—to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.
“No makeup, no men, and no mirrors.” That was the unofficial motto of Curves’ original Texas location in 1992, and it’s no less true today: at nearly 10,000 clubs worldwide, women attack a 30-minute training circuit designed to burn calories and build strength through cardio and resistance workouts. After each minute on a piece of strength-training equipment—each built for feminine frames and designed to work opposing muscle groups with a single movement—exercisers move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to keep their heart from getting bored and falling asleep.
