Overseen by a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard University Medical School and owned by a former model cum medical aesthetician, LivingYoung Center represents the apex of medicine and beauty. Since board-certified plastic surgeon Karen Singer earned her MD at Harvard, the doctor has spent more than 30 years developing a deft, artistic approach to whittling the contours and lifting the slack skin of patients while sculpting her own body through competitive ballroom dancing and innovative use of shoulder pads. She acknowledges that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to any treatment, and so attends closely to her patients' aspirations to create slim, youthful exteriors or rejuvenate them from within with bio-identical hormone therapy.
During her decade as a model, owner Katie Kaffai discovered a scientific interest in beauty and evaluated industry methods for making faces glow, such as surprising tween mannequins with teddy bears. She sought clinical training in aesthetics and laser technology to formalize this experience, developing a program of high-tech, noninvasive treatments to develop camera-ready skin at the cellular level. Kaffai and Singer both belong to the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine to stay current with innovations in the field, and command an elite team that includes a doctor
who specializes in facial anatomy in order to safely administer rejuvenating injections.

When Dr. George Kamajian isn’t busy lecturing on the international circuit, publishing medical articles, or writing books, he oversees his staff of aestheticians at Dr. K’s Med Spa. His team specializes in the use of advanced technology to fight the aging process without invasive plastic surgery. Some of those results-oriented treatments include the use of Cutera lasers, bioidentical hormone-replacement therapy, Fraxel laser treatments, or beauty injections. Further bolstering the team’s time-reversing skin services is a menu of spa treatments that includes peels, facials, and massages, which aim to relax, improve skin tone, and punish wrinkles for their crimes against the face.
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.
