At Veinity, varicose veins shrink and dissipate, body hair vanishes, and cellulite surrenders its hold on hips and thighs. Aiming to solve these and other beauty concerns is the specialty of Dr. Peter G. Vajtai, who taps into more than 25 years of experience. His mission is to help beautify clients without pain, scarring, or need for anesthesia. That’s why, instead of surgery, he relies on lasers; they can be calibrated to target certain tissues and ignore others. Smart Lipo treatments, for instance, can emulsify fat cells without damaging the skin. Unwanted hair, rosacea, and spider veins can also evaporate without much collateral damage––which is what laser treatments are designed for.
But the board-certified vascular surgeon doesn’t work alone. Alongside Dr. Vajtai, Licensed Aesthetician Wendy Lewis smoothens wrinkles and resolves other beauty woes with training from the Mayo Clinic. She wields certifications in Botox, Juvederm, and medical-grade chemical peels and, like the good doctor, she draws from more than a quarter of a century of experience.
The fitness instructors, personal trainers, and nutritionists at ClubSport wield the foundations of total-body wellness: detailed knowledge and cutting-edge equipment. Group classes such as cardio kickboxing, cycling, and circuit training showcase routines for all fitness levels, seven days a week. Personal-training sessions, meanwhile, bring help exercisers develop their own fitness plans and face down the imaginary knight that guards every piece of weight-training equipment.
ClubSport also transforms bodies outside the fitness studio and weight room. A self-described resort-style aquatic center features several lap and exercise pools where swimmers can fine-tune their breaststrokes and favorite shark calls. At an on-site spa, massage therapists ease muscle tension with modalities ranging from hot stone and prenatal to trigger point and reflexology.
Licensed aesthetician Judy Despiris, founder of Aesthetic Images, specializes in corrective skin care, using Image Skincare products with pharmaceutical grade ingredients. Along with her deep cleansing facials, Despiris performs an array of clinical treatments such as microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, and vitamin-C hydrating lifts.

The staff at Active Life Health and Wellness specializes in correcting postural misalignments and relieving chronic aches. During the 15-minute hydro massage, patients lay atop a mechanical hydration bed as focused streams of water coddle their bone sheaths as gently as a tap-dancing kitten. After the relaxing water-based bodywork, one of two in-house doctors performs a thorough examination of clients' bodies to analyze spinal, orthopedic, and neurological health. The 30- to 45-minute consultation scours towers of vertebrae for factors that may be contributing to continual stress and pain, such as spinal irregularities or the fiery eye of Sauron.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide, including two Las Vegas locations, where Drs. Kopolow and Girisgen draw on years of combined experience to assess the ocular health of patients no longer able to discern between aunts and ants in flowered dresses. In the store, opticians help customers navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. They also help focus the world with contacts from Acuvue, allowing cyclopes to throw away their anachronistic monocles and fit in with the 21st century's hip, nonprescription spyglasses.
