Dimitri Dermatology liberates skin of pestilent spider veins with sclerotherapy procedures. During treatments, a member of Dr. Elizabeth Dimitri’s team first injects the offending epidermal arachnids with a solution that forces vessels to swell and self-bind. As the treated blood clots, veins begin to recoil like bashful pythons, ultimately admitting defeat and fading from view. Sclerotherapy requires no downtime (although strenuous activity is discouraged) and typically incurs only slight redness at the remedied area. Two sessions are usually sufficient for complete vein banishment, although especially ornery squatters may require additional treatments.
AVIVA is owned and operated by Linda Strickland, a nationally certified massage therapist dedicated to de-stressing her home state's citizens. At AVIVA, customers are viewed as individuals, not bioengineered clones with exponentially crumbling genomes. This is why your hour-long massage will not consist of prepackaged muscle swabbing but rather a careful treatment tailored to your body's personal needs. Techniques may include the gentle Swedish, therapeutic deep tissue, neuromuscular plumbing, connective tissue-focused aid, or some combination of assorted traditions. All sessions include indulgent hot towels, tranquil music, and a nasal massage in the form of essential-oil aromatherapy.
Under the guidance of Dr. Calvin Williams, the licensed technicians at Surgitrim smooth and tighten skin using FDA-approved Smooth Shapes equipment designed to combat cellulite. Patients relax as staff members guide a shaping contraption over epidermal terrain, the machine's double-roller mechanism working to knead away dimples, creases, and impacted meteors. The noninvasive 30- to 90-minute procedure can leave skin firmer and smoother on any area, but patients typically opt for treatment on the thighs, the hips, or the buttocks. The procedure feels vaguely like a deep-tissue massage, requires no downtime, and has no side effects other than next-day soreness and temporary knowledge of all Gilbert and Sullivan lyrics. Maximum results normally require 8–10 treatments.
Any Lab Test Now presents patients with à la carte access to a broad range of confidential medical laboratory tests. Qualified medical assistants and phlebotomists collect vials of their patients' blood and their used crazy straws before subjecting the DNA samples to tests that determine such things as STD infections, illegal drug use, paternity, or predisposition to disease.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Elizabeth A. Kinsley and her technicians take a highly personal approach to each cosmetic surgery and noninvasive procedure in order to help women feel comfortable and informed throughout each step. Her office brims with the latest state-of-the-art technology, including an Axis 3-D breast-imaging system and an iPhone app that helps women determine which breast-implant size is right for them. Nonsurgical enhancements include Botox, Juvéderm, and FDA-approved CoolSculpting—a liposuction alternative that destroys fat cells by freezing them and requires no lasers, needles, suction hoses, or dynamite.
As a partner of ResearchMDs, a family practice and research facility, RMDs Aesthetics & Med Spa adds a clinical component to relaxing spa services. The physician-supervised team balances complexions with cleansing facials that employ prescription-grade products, such as the SkinMedica line. Technicians fine-tune laser treatments to treat stretch marks, scars, or dimples developed from drinking unsweetened lemonade. A licensed massage therapist addresses stress and soreness with seven different modalities, including neuromuscular-therapy sessions focused on releasing nerve pressure at trigger points.
For the massage therapists at The Bailey Institute Of Muscular Therapy, touch equals medicine for the body and soul. Strokes, friction, and taps are the tools of their trade, useful for dislodging painful knots and giving customers an opportunity to share knock-knock jokes. The team tailors sessions to each client’s needs, fusing techniques such as deep-tissue therapy with medical massage to relax muscles and promote healing. Marathoners, triathletes, and New Orleans Saints team members flock to the facility for sports massages, which can boost flexibility, enhance performance, and help prevent injuries.
