At Women's Health Institute of Macon, family physician Dr. Anayo Umerah works with a team to fortify women against the slow advance of time. They utilize chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and prescription skin-care products to help patrons achieve beauty goals or look young enough to sneak back into the National Santa Claus Museum. In treatment rooms, noninvasive Venus Freeze units purr away, delivering pulses of radio and magnetic frequencies to sculpt bodies and tone skin. Dr. Umerah also puts to use experience accrued as a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Aesthetics Medicine, as well as a battery of high-tech devices, Botox, and nutritional supplements.
In a relaxing environment with a private treatment room and tranquil music, beauty specialists reduce wrinkles, cellulite, and other signs of aging. Aesthetics Anti-Aging Center attacks skin dimples with a massage-based cellulite treatment that firms and softens skin. Aestheticians remove unwanted hair with swipes of warm wax. Fine lines and wrinkles dissipate without discomfort or clothespins in “no needle Botox” treatments that use soy peptides and red marine algae to firm and tighten the skin.
Board-certified physician Dr. Gater believes that the sure-fire path to health is not prescription medications, but good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. “If I could,” says Dr. Gater on her bio, “I’d love to hand a patient running shoes and a tasty plate of vegetables instead of constantly scribbling out prescriptions.” That’s why her weight-loss programs focus on the whole person, providing not only meal recommendations and supplements but also regular coaching in order to instill participants with self-help skills and good eating and exercise habits. With the right lifestyle changes, Dr. Gater believes that the body can transform itself for the better. AdvoCare’s 24-day challenges are tailored to all lifestyles and health issues, from office workers with flagging energy to athletes looking for a boost in performance. Dr. Gater also specializes in aesthetic treatments, such as radiofrequency skin tightening and cellulite reduction, along with primary and urgent medical care.
