The nurse practitioners at Spindale Family Laser & Cosmetic Center brandish a Candela 1064 Nd YAG laser to keep skin free of unwanted marks and textures. The machine’s cryogen cools skin as the laser pulses, which keeps the client as comfortable as possible as the light erases hair, visible veins, acne scars, or stretch marks. It also helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, tightens skin on faces and necks, and smoothes beard bumps. The clinic also provides Botox services and products by VI Derm. Like the Candela machine, VI Derm's facial peel helps erase hyperpigmentation, freckles, and shadows that don’t go away when the sun comes out.

Elite Lab Testing's network of accredited medical reference labs and service centers helps patients take charge of their health and wellness with tests performed at more than 1,700 LabCorp locations across the country. These lab tests—which don't require referrals or doctor visits—cover a lot of ground. For example, with a single blood draw, medical professionals can check for the IgE antibodies that may be causing allergic reactions to insect stings, foods, pollen, mold, and younger siblings. They might spend the rest of the day screening blood-sugar levels, scanning hormone levels and thyroid health, checking for heart attack risks, and lifting the hood on the liver and kidneys. Customers can even order the same tests their health care provider does for routine physicals. Elite Lab Testing also performs drug screens, and offers affordable pricing packages and wellness programs that equip the health-conscious community with useful tools for constructing a healthy lifestyle.
What would be the point of treating pain if the cause of discomfort is allowed to continue? That's the central question behind the method at LaFrance Wellness, where most courses of treatment begin with a thorough assessment to reveal underlying habits or problems with posture. Only then will the team begin to use a variety of techniques—which include lymphatic drainage, Swedish massage, and alignments—to treat the ailment.
Though clients flock to licensed massage therapist Dana Randall to experience the soothing effects of her hands, they soon come to realize that her eyes have the same calming powers. Before asking them to recline on the plush massage bed, Randall gets to know her clients face-to-face. Through these informal chats, she comes to identify which modalities might best help them shake off soreness and anxiety from trudging through long workdays or arm-wrestling boogie monsters nightly.
Randall’s breadth of knowledge is as extensive as the range of ailments she can treat: during each massage, she may draw on techniques that span Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger-point, sports, and prenatal modalities. Through this integrative process, she zeroes in on trouble spots and endows physical and psychological benefits that range from easing lower-back pain to promoting an overall sense of calm. When she isn’t soothing muscles with her nimble fingers, Randall draws out built-up wax and other impurities from the ears with gentle ear-candling therapy.
