Some areas of the body seem impervious to all manner of weight-loss procedures. At The Melting Spa, they understand that sometimes even exercise and dieting just don't get the job done. To combat stubborn fat, they employ i-Lipo. It's a nonsurgical laser system that effectively breaks down fat cells, which are expunged from the body via natural systems. A series of 20-minute sessions often result in contouring and weight loss of up to 3 inches. The staff have chosen to use this tool exclusively because of its effectiveness. It has also been a feature on the The Dr. Oz Show and is approved by the FDA.
At InShapeMD, doctors shepherd clients through wellness programs designed to help them feel younger and increase their energy. Exams and lab work provide the medical team with baseline data at the start of the signature Count Down Diet—a guided, one-on-one support and nutrition regimen that can be supplemented with injections of vitamin B12, lipotropics, or big-band music, all of which are designed to boost energy. Hormone-replacement programs for both women and men aim to restore focus, wellness, and libido by adding hormone-replacement for testosterone injections, creams, and troches.
At Health Chex Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Center, knowledgeable staffers help clients achieve their weight-loss goals with a host of medical procedures and natural supplements. Some of these strategies focus on exercise and lifestyle changes, while others tap into the power of B-12 injections and green-coffee-bean extract. In addition to weight-loss regimens, physicians also supervise programs that help manage chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.
Husband-and-wife duo Ivory and Thea Dennard help their clients bust out of workout ruts at Team 3 Personal Training. With high-intensity routines, kettlebell workouts, and boot-camp classes, they keep muscles guessing; one-on-one training sessions allow the Dennards to tailor these effective workouts to each client's fitness goals. They also provide fitness camps for kids, preparation for bodybuilding competitions, and nutrition planning.
LabTest MD’s team screens patients for allergies, STDs, paternity status, and even steroid use—overall, it offers more than 2,000 medical tests. A CLIA-certified lab processes each one and typically releases the results in 72 hours or less. As at a doctor’s office, test results are confidential; however, unlike at a doctor’s office, patients have complete control over which tests they undergo.
Like a gym, Meant Spa & Lounge wants to help clients slim down. But unlike a gym, which is full of clattering machines, shouting trainers, and people hiding inside lockers, Meant takes a more gentle, laid-back approach to weight loss. Physician-supervised staff administer PhotoSlim Lipo treatments, which rely on a FDA-approved noninvasive red light to shrink fat cells and combat cellulite, lie back and relax while a technician holds the red light over problem areas. Clients can even sip gourmet tea to help them unwind before each treatment. The treatments themselves are non-invasive, and no downtime is required.
When it's not slimming bodies, Meant's high-intensity red light provides nonsurgical face lifts. It boosts collagen production and tightens skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles and slimmer jaw lines and necks.
