The beautifying experts at Eden Body Shaping master non-invasive techniques designed to soothe skin and contour the body's overzealous curves. The one-hour anti-cellulite treatment releases tissue-trapped toxins to stymie cellulite production and sets up striped tents and stages for an old-fashioned epidermal revival. An initial scrub exfoliation rids skin of dead skin cells and freckle shells before an ampule of amino cells replenishes lost proteins. A warm parafango wrap coats bellies and legs with a blend of paraffin wax and mud that draws out unwanted compounds as fatty areas are compressed, resulting in tighter skin and looser-fitting pajamas. Anti-cellulite wraps can be effective in alleviating the symptoms of cellulite, arthritis, and carpal tunnel, as well as reducing the presence of varicose veins. Patients experience no downtime or pain post-procedure, affording the freshly smoothed to immediately volunteer as human slip-n-slides without reason for concern.
Since the historical Ponce de Leon never did find the Fountain of Youth, holistic massage therapist Roxana Ponce de Leon built her own. Using more than a decade of experience, the Peruvian therapist uses therapeutic healing techniques to keep her clients feeling young of mind, body, and spirit. Her services include noninvasive cellulite-reduction treatments, seaweed body wraps, and massages in modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and acupressure.
Body Sculpt Wraps are designed to spot-reduce bulges by sending toxins on a one-way trip out through the lymphatic system. By targeting trouble spots with non-invasive radio energy, technicians are able to break up the toxins and fats that populate the adipose cells' overstuffed walls. Then, the wrap's herbal and enzyme solution penetrate the outer layers of skin, drawing out the excess cellular gunk and flushing it from the area with the body's own lymphatic system. When combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, these detoxifying treatments can help melt away inches and form a firmer physique.
The team of cosmetic and plastic surgeons at Athenix Body Sculpting Institute understands the direct link between physical appearance and self-confidence. In their quest to collectively boost the public's self-esteem, they actively reshape and refine clients' problem areas using the industry's latest technologies?including Natrelle breast implants, natural fat transfers, Body-Jet liposuction, and nonsurgical body contouring?to create curves that parabolas could only dream of.
Many of the clinic's doctors also dedicate their efforts to reshaping the lives of those less fortunate in the community. Dr. Maurice Sherman, the clinic's chief medical officer, donates his time and talents to victims of domestic violence, and Dr. Millicent Odunze repairs cleft palates and other facial deformities as a volunteer for Operation Smile.
Beaux Contours: An Aesthetic Institute was founded by Dr. Feyi Emembolu, who completed her residency at the University of Chicago, one of the country's top medical schools, and Dr. Charles Otieno, who completed his residency at another of the country's top medical schools—UCLA. These two are joined by Dr. Joseph Bivens, an aesthetic plastic surgeon who has been contouring bodies since 1988, and Dr. Dwight Reynolds, who has trained more than 700 physicians and Operation game enthusiasts in the United States and abroad in liposuction techniques and suture suspension. All four doctors stay abreast of the latest developments in plastic surgery so they can surgically contour bodies, tuck tummies, and boost bust sizes using the latest techniques.
