Medical and spa treatments join forces to bolster clients? visages and health.

Having spent 18 years developing her medical practice, Dr. Lori O. Coe opened her first weight-loss clinic in 2009. The positive response to her methods demanded a second venue, so she founded Wellness for Life Weight Loss Clinic three years later to field the influx of clients. There, she builds holistic, personalized programs that incorporate the needs and history of each patient, which are designed to help them both meet and maintain their goal weight. Facets of these programs include a low-carb diet, injections that promote the breakdown of fat, and appetite suppressants, which silence stomach rumblings as effectively as a few bites of ground muffler. Dr. Coe also stocks her office with vitamins and herbal supplements to complement nutritional meals and further motivates patrons by consulting with each of them on a monthly basis.

Dr. Raymond Frye kindles his passion for beautiful smiles by developing convenient at-home pearl-polishing devices to forge dentist-chair results. His ultrasonic toothbrush invigorates morning routines by scrubbing teeth at the speed of 30,000 dynamic strokes per minute. A built-in alert sounds every 30 seconds, letting brushers know to switch areas and reward themselves with a piece of saltwater taffy, before a two-minute timer signals the end of cleaning. For immediate enhancement, regimens such as the Icing 30 Carat system, JägerWhite gel, and Shazzam White gel brighten beams with varying strengths of carbamide peroxide, eschewing the expense and hassle of in-office treatments. Specialized whitening trays, which shape to fit the mouth in an easy at-home molding session, contour to the gum line to keep the whitening solution focused on its pearly objectives, never veering off to burnish marble statues or someone else’s teeth.
