After giving birth to two children and being unable to shed the extra pounds she'd gained, Dr. Stacy Shropshire began investigating weight-loss options. As a result of this research, she founded Madison Laser Like Lipo, now Evolution Body Transformation. The clinic's laser-driven services work to rid the body of stubborn areas of fat and cellulite, resulting in a tighter, smoother silhouette.
Board-certified dermatologist Harry Sharata, M.D. PhD is a man of many talents. Not only does he serve as clinical associate professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, but he is also the medical director for both Advanced Dermatology, Inc. and Madison Skin & Research Inc., a research clinic that conducts clinical trials on dermatological therapies. In his work at Advanced Dermatology, Inc., he leads a staff of nurses, physician’s assistants, and pharmacists through medical dermatology procedures that target eczema, skin cancer, and acne and cosmetic dermatology treatments. These include laser hair-removal as well as other outpatient procedures such as photorejuvenation, glycolic chemical peels, and Botox, which noninvasively target signs of aging including wrinkles, age spots, and lips that continually whistle “Ragtime Gal.”
With backgrounds in healing disciplines including human nutrition and Chinese medicine, the wellness practitioners at Anew Total Body Center care for clients both inside and out. Their treatment specialties include directed weight loss programs, body-shaping treatments, and massage. Beyond traditional deep-tissue and relaxation massages, they also offer fire cupping, gua sha, and Thai massage. In addition to their holistic treatments, they also provide lifestyle coaching; financial self-improvement seminars from Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University aim to add pounds to pocketbooks and piggy banks.
Dr. Phillips, a board-certified general and vascular surgeon, taps into more than 20 years of experience to oversee Lumière Laser & Vein Center. His team of consultants, medical assistants, and aestheticians harnesses waves of light to reduce unsightly veins and revitalizes mugs with signature facials or photofacial treatments. Using FDA-approved lasers, they also dispatch nail fungus, reduce irksome body hair, and reveal buried treasure with an intricate series of mirrors.
Certified in plastic and general surgery, Dr. James McAdoo transforms fading facial façades into enchanting visages at both of his clinic locations. Botox treatments safely flatten furrows by paralyzing wrinkle-causing muscles with miniscule injections of toxins, leaving skin as soft and smooth as a kitten on a Segway. Side effects are generally minimal, with most patients reporting only a mild stinging that quickly subsides and a precognizant tingling that warns of oncoming danger. Treatments last from 15 minutes to an hour and are effective for up to four months.
Backed by a team of medical staffers with a minimum of eight years of experience each, Intelligent Lipo of Rockford’s Doctor of Chiropractic William B. Erickson treats chiropractic ailments and revamps aesthetic appearances. As a former football player, Erickson is familiar with injuries and bodily aches. He treats sore backs with chiropractic techniques such as stimulating muscles with electricity or commanding spines to straighten with drill-sergeant impressions.
Patients with aesthetic concerns can sculpt physiques with the i-Lipo laser fat-reduction system, which won Best Slimming Treatment at France’s Victoire De La Beauté. The system's laser beams break down fat cells into components small enough to exit the cell walls and pass out of the body through the lymphatic system before they reconstitute themselves into a double cheeseburger.
