As a family physician, Dr. Zainab Nawab advocates preventive medicine, but she also recognizes that aging is the one condition no amount of treatment can prevent. That's why, in her role at Vitalize MD, she oversees services designed to offset the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Her methods are decidedly high-tech: when she's not tightening the skin with 3DEEP radio-frequency treatments, she's erasing fine lines with the Fraxel system's microscopic lasers and injectables such as Botox and Dysport. Even the products the center uses during its five facials—and sells to clients—have a medical bent, from the clinically tested SkinMedica line of cleansers to Jane Iredale's dermatologist-endorsed mineral makeup.
Board-certified physicians Paul Willis, MD and Richard Freniere, DO specialize in lasers, using light to melt fat cells and tighten skin by up to 70%. In addition to lipo-laser treatments, the doctors also perform minimally invasive procedures that contour and sculpt the body with lasers. Known as the Madonna Lift, CO2 laser skin rejuvenation removes dark rings and wrinkles from around the eyes, which draws attention to the eyes without forcing them to wear cone-shaped bifocals. Meanwhile, botulinum toxin and other dermal fillers reduce the appearance of fine lines between the brows and around the mouth or nose.
Since 1992, clients have walked out of LaRose Muscular Therapy lighter and more relaxed after therapeutic massage treatments. Today, they maintain a staff comprised of more than 10 licensed therapists, each specializing in different modalities. They work to help clients overcome pain and physical and mental discomfort through massage in five private suites. Services include Swedish, deep- tissue, and prenatal massage?the last a soothing treatment to help soon-to-be mothers who have to carry the weight of their baby and their backpack full of baby books.
Founded by certified electrologist, aesthetician, and laser technician Donna Bayrouty, Laserderm Medispa's wide array of cosmetic services reflects its founder's versatility. Her skilled staff thwarts wrinkles and blemishes during facial treatments that incorporate Isolaz beams or ultrasonic frequencies to spur collagen production. The staff picks up Laserscope's medical-grade Lyra during hair-removal treatments and applies lash extensions and permanent makeup.
The highly skilled team of licensed massage therapists at Orthomed Massage Clinic focuses on mending tattered musculature with clinical massages in a modern, holistic atmosphere. The sports massage delves into the deeper tissues to manage sore muscles and aid in the healing process of sports injuries, and the clinical orthopedic massage addresses adhesion and scar-tissue dysfunction. Both the sports and orthopedic massages bestow clients with a modified stretching program to sustain loosened bone mufflers. The light pressure of gliding strokes marks the relaxing Swedish massage, and prenatal and post-natal massages are both available to soothe expecting mothers or recovering mothers who experience aches, pains, or stress associated with pregnancy, childbirth, and trying too many cartwheels while pregnant.
Dr. Sandra V. Kristiansen heads the capable staff at the AdonisMD Cosmetic Surgery Center, one that specializes in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures and houses a physician onsite daily. Avoiding general anesthesia, they use only local anesthesia to help minimize downtime. Doctors can perform several treatments designed to abate unsightly leg veins, such as endovenous laser treatments, which use tiny laser fibers within the vein to close them up. Other treatments include fat transfer, where the client's own fat is removed, purified, and re-injected into a different area of the body to help achieve a more youthful look. There's also IPL hair removal and laser liposuction, the latter of which liquefies and removes fat via a tiny cannula. Established in 1997 and BBB accredited, AdonisMD Cosmetic Surgery Center now operates in a brand-new facility with optimal highway access.
