Laser hair removal selectively targets pigment inside hair follicles with all the acuity of a folk hero shooting an apple atop his son's head and none of the complicated pathos. The heat generated destroys the hair without damaging the skin. The expert laser-wielders at ExcelLase hone their lasery wands to render your underarms, bikini area, or upper lip and chin aerodynamically hair free. Although the number of treatments necessary for the laser's depilatory rays to be fully effective varies due to factors such as age, ethnicity, metabolism, and wingspan, the average is four to six treatments. See ExcelLase's FAQ page for further specifics on the treatments and updates on whether or not super-villains have hijacked ExcelLase's technology yet.

Licensed therapist Gail Washington helps clients of all ages find relief from pain and stress through a humanistic approach to massage. Her holistic techniques coax bodies into self-healing states without cosseting them head to toe with regenerative starfish. When kneading individual clients or couples, she uses Swedish massage to promote relaxation and boost circulation. She can also draw on deep-tissue, trigger-point, and sports massage modalities to loosen tight knots and help prevent future injuries. When she isn't massaging sore backs, Gail soothes careworn scalps and fills the air with aromatherapeutic scents.
The staff of physicians and technicians at Carolina Thermascan promote women's health by helping to detect cancerous activity in breast tissue before tumors form. Physicians begin the 30-minute Thermascan by asking patients to disrobe from the waist up and submerge their hands in cool water for one minute to yield a physiologic response that benefits the doctor's reading of the scan. Once fingers are sufficiently pruney, the noninvasive, radiation-free Thermascan monitors surface temperatures of the breast tissue and an infrared camera helps highlight vascular-breast patterns. High-resolution diagnostic images capture the data, which the physicians survey for bright splotches of color that indicate high temperatures and peaked vascular activity, indicative of high biochemical activity, or potentially, a tumor.
Though Mariam Clinic offers free appointments and care to its patients, many of them require more expensive diagnostic laboratory tests such as lipid panels, prostate-cancer screenings, and routine bloodwork to furnish experts with full pictures of their health. Though the clinic can provide discounts on some laboratory tests to those in need, many clients are unable to afford even discounted laboratory tests.
