In the 1970s, Dr. W. L. Asher and Dr. Harold Harper tested the effects of hCG, a hormone theorized to assist in the treatment of obesity. By the end of their double-blind study, the researchers discovered that the hormone doesn’t magically eliminate fat. Instead, it suppresses appetite and enhances overall feelings of well-being, thus resulting in greater weight-loss success. At Physicians Center for Weight Loss & Age Management, Dr. Agnes Green follows her predecessors, calling upon hCG injections and several other medical miracles to lead clients to healthier, more fulfilling lives.
Dr. Green and her staff offer two programs for weight loss: hCG injections and a comprehensive program. Both physician-monitored programs include bloodwork, weekly visits, nutritional counseling, and food journaling, but the latter trades hCG injections for other medical injections such as B12 and amino acids. For clients feeling and looking older, Dr. Green prescribes bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy to replenish hormones lost with age and refuel the lust for life experienced by young people and Jeopardy! winners. The intravenous Myers’ cocktail treatment, meanwhile, replenishes essential nutrients not obtained in the typical diet for the sake of eliminating chronic fatigue, depression, and even dementia. Beyond injections, Physicians Center offers custom anti-aging skin creams, pharmaceutical-grade multivitamins, and other health-enhancing services.
The dermatologists at Bay Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery provide treatment geared toward two ends: skin health and skin beauty. Their chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal keep skin smooth by removing dead cells and unwanted hair from the surface. Dermatology services screen skin for signs of melanoma, help treat acne, and use UVB light therapy to alleviate symptoms of psoriasis and eczema. The staff also removes spider veins by injecting a special solution or reduces the appearance of fine lines with the injection of prescription Botox. Bay Dermatology stocks a product lineup that includes ColoreScience, Glo Minerals, Latisse, NeoCutis, and Image Skin Care. The center traces its origins to 1988, and since then the team has opened offices in seven local towns.
With a background in pediatrics and nearly 30 years in practice, medical director Dr. Sheryl Haynes added aesthetic and laser therapies to her rich resumé following her move to Florida in 1981. Along with Dr. Robby Rockets, medical aesthetician Noelle Krauth, and licensed massage therapist Sheryl Merz, Dr. Haynes maintains a relaxing atmosphere––complete with verdant plants and cozy massage tables––where clients can indulge in a variety of medical and clinical services. Weight-loss programs aid participants in shedding unwanted pounds, and photofacials tackle irregular skin texture, acne scars, and skin damaged from bathing in the actual sun.
Medical director Dr. Eric Weinstock draws upon his two areas of expertise, psychiatry and bariatrics, as he helps patients outsmart their extra pounds. By combining vitamins and appetite suppressants (upon doctor approval) with moderate exercise and confidence-boosting counseling, he is able to lighten bathroom-scale loads where other, less personalized programs have failed. And by helping dieters slim down, he is reducing their risk of health issues such as diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and respiratory problems.
Under the guidance of Drs. John and Louis Michaelos, Halo Aesthetics' spa team administers a wide range of cosmetic treatments for the skin and body. Lasers are used for several services, including skin resurfacing, hair removal, and acne therapy. Botox is also a multipurpose remedy here, effective against both facial wrinkles and hyperhidrosis. One of their most popular services is Venus Freeze, which is a technology that can help tighten skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite in anyone but snowmen.
