Only five Sculptor machines reside in the United States and one of them can be found in Amra Domazet's health studio, Sculptor Body Contouring. Amra, a certified laser technician, travelled to Arizona to be trained on this unique device that noninvasively slims physiques and tightens skin, allowing her clients to beautify their bodies without going under the knife.
Also in Arma's high-tech tool kit are lasers for fighting spider veins, body hair, and unwanted tats, as well IPL facial units and a miniature Hubble telescope.
In a house on tree-lined historic Union Street, board-certified vein specialist Dr. Fort eliminates unwanted spider and varicose veins by using an array of noninvasive techniques, such as traditional and foam sclerotherapy, laser therapy, and minimally invasive surgical solutions. Esthetic Laser Centre's medical esthetician, Amy Perka, focuses attention on faces, using different types of lasers to reduce hyperpigmentation and tone complexions, along with chemical peels and dermaplaning. The lasers are also used to banish unwanted hair.
Dr. Steven Yarinsky spruces up facial façades with an array of high-tech surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. After a five-year general-surgery residency, Dr. Yarinsky devoted two years to intensive study in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Every three years, he returns for 150 hours of additional schooling to brush up on the latest treatments. Whether he's working on the face, breasts, tummy, or antlers, the doctor strives to keep final results natural in an effort to bolster patients' confidence in their own beauty. Dr. Yarinsky performs all Botox and filler treatments. Alongside the doctor, a team of highly trained nurses, techs, and licensed massage therapists perform med-spa treatments such as laser procedures, BioMedic peels, and microdermabrasion.
Xolo, which takes its name from a hairless breed of Mexican dog, specializes in lasering unwanted hair into oblivion, thus freeing patients from the pain of waxing and tweezing, the burn of the razor, and the discomfort of duct tape peels. Your three laser hair removal treatments will be undertaken by Dr. Peggy Ku, a certified physician who uses the Cynosure Elite laser system to provide personalized results based on your skin color, hair type, and hair color (unfortunately, treatments aren't effective against white, gray, light blond, or red hair). An interval of six to eight weeks separates each laser session; most clients should see smooth, lasting results and a loss of at least 90% of their hair after a total of six treatments.

Dr. Lori L. Greenwald—who is board certified in both vascular surgery and phlebology (venous disorders) and whose skills were featured on Better Connecticut’s Project Makeover segment—has devoted her career to caring for patients with venous problems. Alongside a staff of vein specialists, including advanced nurse practitioners, surgical technologists, and technicians, Dr. Greenwald banishes spider veins with sclerotherapy and laser therapy, and treats varicose veins with 15- to 20-minute Closure or radiofrequency-ablation treatments. She often uses ultrasound technology to diagnose vascular problems and annoy neighborhood dogs, and she can seal off varicose veins in just a few minutes with her lunch-hour leg lift.
