The alternative-medicine practitioners at Quantum Wellness and Healing Center adopt a holistic approach to health care—rather than focusing on only the body, they customize health-care plans to balance each client's physical, mental, and emotional chemistry. They perform a range of wellness services such as FDA-registered bio-feedback diagnoses, meal plans, far-infrared sauna sessions, and whole-body vibration sessions. At an organic-juice bar, servers prepare juices, vitamins, and wheatgrass shots, which help clients take in beneficial nutrients and help flowers resist their cannibalistic urges.
At Schlessinger Eye & Face, Dr. David Schlessinger goes far beyond eye drops and the Snellen chart. As a board-certified surgeon, Schlessinger offers three types of surgical treatments: oculoplastic surgery for instances of ptosis, skin cancer, or tearing disorders; neuro-ophthalmology, which covers all things relating to the eyes and brain, such as double vision or migraines; and, lastly, cosmetic procedures, including brow- and face-lifts and upper- or lower-eyelid surgery.
Supplementing Dr. Schlessinger's cosmetic procedures, his clinic's med spa also offers proven noninvasive beautification procedures. From within the med spa, his staff of licensed medical aestheticians battles the effects of aging and sun damage with chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and custom European facials that leave faces beaming brighter than a headlight in a snowstorm.
With years of experience owning and running a variety of spas and fitness facilities, the owners of SpafitRx combined their acquired knowledge into one medical spa. Here, laser technicians zap away unwanted body hair with the Candela Gentlelase Laser, aestheticians whiten teeth, and spray-tan artists mist figures with an odorless bronzing solution that dries within five minutes. Their team also assists in anti-aging treatments and develops personalized attack plans in the battle for weight loss that are much more effective than berating fatty areas into going away.
In addition to being a member of the Botox Cosmetic Physicians Network, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has been featured in many forms of media, hosts his own cosmetic-surgery radio show, and won Long Island Press' Best of Long Island 2010 Cosmetic Surgeon award. Dr. Greenberg performs a consultation with each patient before using his highly specific training to administer tiny, muscle-relaxing injections into wrinkle-causing areas while singing a lullaby in a rich baritone. The appointment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the injection site. Botox treatments smooth moderate wrinkles and prevent further depth in wrinkling, leaving skin as sleek as a bobsled track doused in canola oil. Improvement may be observed within a few days, and results can last up to four months. Discomfort from the Botox treatment is minimal; the sensation could be likened to a pinprick or a momentary flashback to one's haircut in the '80s.
Jericho Anti Aging's skin specialists and technicians aim to restore visitors’ youthful allure without ever lifting a scalpel. They target wrinkles, sagging skin, and coal-rich kneecaps with a variety of noninvasive treatments that include chemical peels and elastin-infusion therapy, which is designed to tighten skin and erase stretch marks with a regenerative process originally used to aid wounded soldiers. An affiliate of the Texas Beauty Institute, Jericho Anti Aging wields moisturizers, natural sunscreens, and skin protectants from such TBI product lines as Biosthetics, Collagenna, and Lanterna.
At Transforming Beauty Spa Inc., staff use the Cavi-Lipo device, which allows patients to slim down without going under the knife. The FDA-approved device uses ultrasonic cavitation to remove unwanted fat cells. Once the lymphatic-drainage system absorbs the fat, patients can flaunt more toned and streamlined bodies by wearing their swimsuits to work.
