Pro Tip: For weight loss, we don't take appointments, so there may be a wait when we are at our busiest.
Image Centre's treatment menu might seem overwhelming if it wasn't for the technicians, stylists, aestheticians, and surgeons on hand to walk clients through their options. For quick beauty touchups, they may recommend a Shellac manicure or an airbrush spray tan. A more involved appointment might include a microdermabrasion facial combined with a cherry clarifying peel, or it might consist of a Brazilian blowout and a karaoke performance of the album "American Pie" and Other Eight-Minute Songs. Most serious of all would be the center's cosmetic-surgery options, including eye-lifts and liposuction, performed at a separate surgery center. To address their long-term health concerns, clients can also explore the center's weight-loss plans, which rely heavily on B12 and other vitamin injections in an effort to impact the body's metabolism.

He can also forge svelte physiques with comprehensive mommy makeovers, designed to restore new mothers' post-pregnancy bodies to the state they were in before babies filled them with gaudy futons. Spider-vein therapy and skincare treatments such as microdermabrasion and Botox round out the center's slate of aesthetic services.
Dr. Robbins wants to see smaller numbers on scales, pant labels, and?most importantly?medical studies regarding obesity-related diseases. He shares this mission with the community through broader-scale initiatives aimed at improving school lunches and the readability of nutrition labels, and through personalized plans for clients at his weight-loss centers. There, he and his team of bariatric specialists guide patients through their medical weight-loss programs step by step. They tailor treatments for individual needs, customizing diet plans, administering weekly injections of methylcobalamin injections, and recommending FDA-approved appetite suppressants and medications.
