In U Love Massages' elegantly appointed private treatment rooms, talented aestheticians pamper bodies inside and out with head-to-toe pulchritude services.

Within Specialists in Dermatology's 16,200-square-foot facility, board-certified physicians and physician assistants aim to maintain or beautify skin through general, cosmetic, and surgical procedures. Consultations help skin doctors and patients to craft general treatment plans that can stop the spread of conditions such as acne, hair loss, and polka dots. Spa-like cosmetic services treat the body's outer layer to chemical peels, and high-tech, non-invasive treatments zap off unwanted hair and freeze stubborn fat cells. The clinic's surgical team can also treat more serious issues such as skin cancer. Each of Specialists in Dermatology's physician assistants must pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination to obtain a two-year certification and learn the 500 different ways to pronounce "freckle."
At the beginning of his fitness career, Conor Kelly was a walking paradox: an out-of-shape personal trainer. Though he had taken part in powerlifting and strongman competitions, he found that much of the weight he had gained over the years was fat rather than muscle. So, he became his own client. He observed how lean, toned people conducted their workouts, paying special attention to practices that weren't mentioned in mainstream gym classes. He spoke with other trainers to learn which strategies produced results, and which were ineffective fads. Eventually, he combined all of his research into a new philosophy—one that banished his excess weight, and became the founding principle of Evolution Fitness.
The method he created relies on personalization. Clients meet with him or another certified personal trainer for an initial assessment, during which they identify their goals and take several measurements. The trainers then plan workouts to address specific aims, whether it's weight loss or muscle sculpting. They coach their clients in a private studio with a mix of cardio intervals and strength exercises, keeping the routines varied and, to the best of their ability, fun. Nutritionist Dr. Abazar Habibinia also contributes dietary advice. His manageable tips work within the client's lifestyle, and refrain from stressful rules that prohibit your favourite foods unless you're eating them while doing a wall-sit. And, for those that can't commit to an ongoing, customized program, Conor and his team also host group boot-camp sessions.
As the Roxy behind Roxy Skin Care, Roxanne Rodriguez boasts more experience than the average aesthetician. Though she began her career working alongside physicians in med spas, she also spent nine years learning the ropes in the medical field, honing her clinical experience and determining whether or not ER was true to life. Today, Roxanne applies the knowledge she amassed to beautify skin with services including facials and chemical peels. Her freshly unveiled lactic acid resurfacer peel is one of her most powerful treatments, keeping hyperpigmentation and wrinkles at bay with the help of targeted microdermabrasion.
Blending her medical experience with an eye for beauty, Angie restores vitality to careworn bodies with sclerotherapy and cosmetic injectables. Her treatment menu is diverse but not overwhelming in its scope, allowing her to specialize in a handful of treatments that she executes with time-tested skill. Beautifiers such as Botox help keep complexions smooth and pouts looking plumpest, and sclerotherapy medication—when activated by a reading of the saddest pages from _Charlotte’s Web_—sends spider veins scurrying away.
