Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
TampaProMassage chases aches and tension from limbs and joints with a menu of services triggered to restore both corporeal and mental harmony. Licensed massage therapist Wm. Cory Jeffries seeks to alleviate tension and stress with specialized massages that build upon variations of the five basic strokes of Swedish massage. Inside the tranquil studio, Jeffries greets clients at the door to build a rapport and make them feel at ease. After a brief double-dutch jump-rope routine and a quick consult to address prominent aches or discomforts, Jeffries lobs slow, gliding strokes across the skin, usually coursing pressure in the direction of blood flow—from wrist to shoulder, ankle to knee. Steady, tight rotations swarm knees, elbows, and other high-impact joints sore from filling in for a street performer’s marionette. For athletes, a sports massage supports competitive training and boosts recovery time, and a reflexology massage galvanizes greater bodily balance by stimulating areas that correspond to glands and organs.
Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for takeoff, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
Given his impeccable track record in turning back the clock on skin, it's hard to believe that Dr. Charles Talakkottur once specialized in internal medicine. Dr. Talakkottur made the choice to switch to aesthetics only after seeing so many patients with the same concerns about their outward appearance. Today, TLC Aesthetics is determined to keep Tampa looking beautiful with treatments such as 20-minute laser lipo, spider vein removal, botox treatments, and laser hair removal.
At Real Athletics & Wellness, trainers have two settings: low and high intensity. But the physical results they help clients achieve fit into a single category: striking. Whether instructors—including a triple-threat college athlete and a former professional volleyball player—head up RAW Elite Training, a challenging mix of running, TRX, and other exercises, or Shape-Up Training, a scaled-down version of RAW Elite, they use functional movements to shape bodies quickly. That same method is put to use in athlete training, personal training, and programs for youth and seniors.
