Under the expert guidance of specially trained physicians, staffers harness the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, 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.
A team of highly specialized providers works to relieve health issues through services ranging from acupuncture and massage to aromatherapy and holistic health counseling, which helps clients achieve balance through a cultivation of nutritional, sleep, and mental habits.
For Rachel Robertson, five is a magic number. It's the number of movements that the spine is capable of—flexion, extension, lateral flexion, rotation, and neutral—and it's the maximum number of students she'll allow in one of her classes (which are 55 minutes long). Because the classes are kept small, her guidance is precise and personalized. She makes small modifications to each student's form as they segue from one exercise to the next, helping them not only to perfect their technique, but to become increasingly aware of the way their body functions.
Rachel's lessons incorporate mats as well as Stott Pilates equipment, from Reformers to stability chairs. Though all of her routines help to build core strength, balance, and flexibility, she tailors them to address the needs of each client, whether they're an athlete hoping to hone performance or someone looking to lose weight. Rehabilitative and specialty classes even focus on conditions such as scoliosis or pelvic-floor problems. Alongside her fellow instructor and former student Shyra, Rachel coaches clients of all ages and fitness levels to higher levels of wellness.

Dr. Bryan Doonan may oversee Medspa XL, but it’s the team of RNs, medical aestheticians, trained technicians, and massage therapists that run the show—particularly Jodi Sawyer. A licensed RN, she masters—and trains doctors and nurses to use—a slew of technologically adventurous treatments to fight aging, sun damage, and unsightly body hair and veins. The Harmony AFT Laser, for example, smoothes skin using gentle pulses of light. Without damaging the top layer of skin, the pulses of light rebuild collagen and even out skin tone. And this isn’t the only way to enhance and maintain beauty at Medspa XL.
The team’s grasp of pharmaceutically induced beauty is also vice-tight. They inject muscles with Botox to impede send wrinkles packing and help clients grow thicker, longer lashes with applications of Latisse or by tying helium balloons to each lash. They also offer complimentary initial consultations to clients unsure of what steps to take next.
