The staffers at Laser Magic devote themselves entirely to the circumference-reducing operation of the Zerona cold laser. Under the discerning eye of the center's medical director, an all-female team of laser technicians carries out each 40-minute treatment gently and efficiently. The FDA-approved procedure is completely noninvasive and requires minimal downtime. Staff also administer IPL treatments, facials, and injections, while waxers remove unwanted hair.
Biovive Medicine's Dr. Kane Lai wields years of experience and a medical degree from Vanderbilt University to help his patients overcome weight and hormone obstacles. The board-certified bariatric surgeon and his staff of physicians, nutritionists, personal trainers, and nurse practitioners set in motion medical weight-loss programs designed to fight flab, combining exercise and diet regimens with lipotropic injections and medications when necessary. In addition to weight-loss services, the center also offers bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, which helps balance hormones set out of whack by menopause, andropause, and painfully vivid memories of high school dances.
The Thin Spa's staff has a two-pronged approach to enhancing their clients' lives. First, they help them reduce fat and tighten skin with ultrasonic cavitation and radio-frequency treatments, which are more high-tech than building a thinner-looking robot clone. Alternatively, clients relax under a range of soothing massages, including Swedish and more in-depth myofascial-release modalities.
The husband-and-wife team behind Wellness Spa on 5th Avenue knows firsthand how debilitating toxins can be. Bobbi Thompson attributes allergen sensitivities and weight challenges to her childhood mercury exposure from amalgam fillings and pesticides. Now a registered nurse and colon hydrotherapy practitioner, Thompson has dedicated her life to healing herself and others. Her spouse, Jerry Besing, can attest to her passion. After suffering a major health challenge in 2003, he became increasingly interested in detoxifying treatments, and took a wellness-coaching class at The School of Integrative Healing, directed by Thompson. He is now trained in services ranging from cellulite reduction to lymphatic drainage.
Each relaxing, impurity-targeting treatment takes place within a quaint, Victorian-style house. The crew also sells nontoxic pet products that keep dog, cats, and cherished pet rocks healthy without harming the environment.
The staff at Reveal Zerona Laser Body Slimming harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During sessions, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistlines, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. The staff suggests that patients can boost results with healthful eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
