- $314 for four i-Lipo laser treatments (a $900 value)
During each 20-minute session, a technician contours the body and tightens the skin with an i-Lipo laser system, which is equipped with 36 laser diodes. The system gently massages the skin, helping to release fatty acids from within cells, while the laser’s infrared light stimulates blood circulation and collagen production. The nonsurgical procedure requires no downtime and, for optimal results, should be scheduled twice a week for four weeks. Additional sessions may be needed, depending on the client’s goals.
Ciao Bella Medical Center and Spa
Since her days as a high-school basketball and track star, Dr. Benita Stephens has understood the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and weight. But it wasn't until she was a trained obstetrician and gynecologist with her own practice that she saw the damaging effects excess weight has on the body. Feeling inclined to help her overweight and obese patients, Dr. Stephens sprung into action, calling upon her extensive training in bariatric medicine to establish Ciao Bella Medical Center and Spa. And it was this determination and passion for helping others that gained Dr. Stephens praise from MadameNoire and earned her the 2012 Business Superstar Award and inaugural cover from PYNTK magazine.
From within Ciao Bella's office, Dr. Stephens and her friendly staff help clients shed pounds and gain confidence through customized weight-loss programs, which can include tailored exercise plans; B12, HCG, and lipotropic injections; appetite suppressants; and meal replacements. But before programs are constructed, an initial consultation reviews patients' health history, determines their current state of health with a physical exam, and analyzes their body composition. Ciao Bella's staff also tighten and tone the skin on the face with facials, microdermabrasion, and Botox treatments.
