The aestheticians at V European Beauty Center target the signs of aging using nonsurgical techniques such as lipolasers, which aim to spot-treat fat and reduce cellulite noninvasively. Additional treatments include microdermabrasion, face peels, radio-frequency body and facial treatments.
At Beautiful You, Dr. Jamie Fettig and his team devote themselves to helping clients achieve the health benefits of weight loss in addition to the aesthetic boons of being slim. They work toward these goals by encouraging clients to adopt lifestyle changes through custom nutritional counseling and diet planning. The staffers believe in the slimming effects of LipoLaser treatments, but they stress the importance of backing up all procedures with healthy eating and exercise. During LipoLaser sessions, they furnish headphones and video glasses to lead a guided visual experience that instructs patrons on how to break bad eating habits. By following programs and receiving LipoLaser treatments, clients can lose up to five pants or dress sizes, the same amount lost by doing 100 sit-ups in the crushing gravity of Jupiter.
At the O'Neil Skin and Lipo Medical Center, an accredited surgery center, Dr. Kelly O'Neil enlists SmartLipo technology to remove fat and tighten skin. In preparation for the one- to three-hour fat-banishing treatment, patients receive an intravenous sedation, leaving nerves calmer than a tranquilized sloth in a zen garden. Next, the doctor injects the desired area with anesthetic fluid, which in combination with high-frequency vibrations readies the extra padding for easy removal. The doctor's steady hands lead the SmartLipo—a slim tube containing a laser fiber—into the area to rupture fat cells and make the skin taut and firm.
