Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
Medifast uses tasty, healthful meals, snacks, and drinks and personalized dietary plans to help people shed weight and maintain healthy living. A one-week supply of nutrient-packed nourishment consists of snacks and a total of 35 meals—five for each day—loaded with soy protein and a plethora of vitamins and minerals more devoted to hearts than a songwriter's first hundred songs. Nosh on a variety pack of breakfasts, soups including chicken and wild rice and Maryland crab, and shakes, such as Swiss mocha and banana crème ($19.50 each). A pack of wholesome brownies keeps sweet teeth sated ($19.80), and a bar sampler comes loaded with s’more-crunch, lemon-crunch, and oatmeal-raisin flavors ($20.30 value).
Skin savant Suman Prasad at Suman's Facial & Body Sculpting revivifies faces with laser-free treatments that ease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with no downtime. Microcurrent facial treatments begin with an application of products designed to increase effectiveness and help to reduce the appearance of pores, dark circles beneath the eyes, light scarring, and residual leopard spots. Small metal wands then traverse the face, the chin, and the neck, emitting mild microcurrents through specific acupuncture points. The currents penetrate the skin, stimulating collagen production and increasing circulation, which helps to temporarily tighten sagging features and banish blemishes. The treatment's lack of downtime ensures that façades can face the world or return to practicing fish lips in front of the mirror without delay. Many clients notice changes in appearance immediately, but multiple treatments are recommended for best results.
Serenity Massage molds aching, tense bodies into a more pacified state; its experienced therapists are able to relieve chronic aches and everyday pains. Amid water fountains and tranquil music, one of Serenity's licensed muscle manipulators will untie tricky knots faster than a jilted balloon-animal artist. Choose from a cornucopia of trapezius-tickling treatments, such as the Swedish massage, which ousts muscle pain with an angry yet organized mob of kneading, rolling, vibrating, and tapping hand movements. Or heal muscles repetitively strained from smuggling medicine balls to imprisoned bodybuilders with the forceful deep-tissue massage. Meanwhile, the sports massage focuses its attention on preventing injury in active athletic bodies.

What?s your favorite part about your job?
My clients. Meeting new people and growing a really in-depth personal relationship with each person. I am extremely personable and very open. I find that clients will confide in me. I am a safe place and person to talk to, and I absolutely love and value that. My clients know that every conversation, treatment, and personal information is confidential. I cherish the fact that my clients know that I always have their best interest at hand; that I will always make time for them. I provide personal information so they always have access to me for their questions and any concerns they may have.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
When you first walk in, you are greeted with a sense of warmth. I offer a very cozy environment with a fireplace, warm colors, and light aromas. You are always greeted with a warm smile and asked if you would like a beverage (water, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or even a glass of wine). The treatment room itself offers a very comfortable bed and has a darling lit chandelier with candles (battery-operated), allowing a nice, soft glow. Clients always have the opportunity to add any waxing or services prior to their facial, or a hot oil treatment to hands and feet followed by aromatherapy footies, hand mittens, and relaxing massage. This treatment leaves the hands and feet feeling like soft butter. The treatment room offers a personal space for clients to hang their personal belongings, but always having everything close by.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
Complete astonishment and elated joy when they are handed the mirror after their treatment. It's amazing.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
One of the best compliments I receive from my clients is when they fall asleep during a facial and or back facial. They tell me they are so comfortable and relaxed. I often hear snoring?it's the best.
