Balanced Beauty offers innovative solutions to health and wellness in Geneva.
by Michael Nocella with Dr. Arun Nagpaul
Finger Lake Region residents with health and wellness New Year’s resolutions take note: Balanced Beauty Wellness and Medical Spa, located at 34 Seneca Street in Geneva, is now open.
Dr. Arun Nagpaul, the medical director of Balanced Beauty, explained he always envisioned opening a practice that prevents illness and promotes wellness – as opposed to a traditional practice that focuses only on disease. His goal with his new wellness spa is to offer medically supervised treatments that prevent disease, and make his clients feel and look great.
“There is a health care crisis in America that is contributing to heart disease, cancer, depression and deaths,” he said. “I feel this crisis is being fueled by poor diet, stress, and the thought that you don’t have the time, money or knowledge to be healthy. Everyone deserves to be healthy inside and out. Balanced Beauty’s mission is to help you achieve your wellness goals.”
According to Nagpaul, more than 66 percent of Americans are overweight, even though in any given year 45 million people diet and spend $33 billion on weight-loss products. In addition, up to 75 percent of individuals do not take the time to hydrate with adequate fluid each day. “One cannot feel well or function optimally if dehydrated or at an unhealthy weight,” Nagpaul noted.
Balanced Beauty’s business is built on services that promote health, including a weight-loss program that allows you to lose weight and keep it off, smoking cessation, hormone therapy, massage therapy, and an IV hydration program that helps prevent disease. Balanced Beauty also offers hypnosis therapy to help clients overcome barriers to achieving their goals.
Dr. Nagpaul has also partnered with the premier aesthetic device company, Cartessa, to be able to provide cutting edge laser skin treatments and body contouring.
Balanced Beauty also offers “aesthetic services” that include hydrafacials, tattoo removal, hair removal, treatment of acne, age spots, wrinkles and spider veins. Nagpaul said the most asked about services are VirtueRF microneedling and Physiq body contouring.
“Microneedling works,” Nagpaul explained, “by creating microscopic channels and delivering radio frequency heat energy to the desired skin depths to promote remodeling of collagen and elastin. VirtueRF helps skin grow back healthier and smoother, all while minimizing discomfort. This treatment is ideal for fine wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, cellulite and sagging skin. Some have called microneedling a nonsurgical facelift.”
“As for Physiq,” he continued, “it is a body-sculpting device that kills fat cells by heating them. At the same time, it builds muscle through electrical muscle stimulation. This maximizes results and offers a comfortable, no-downtime solution to those stubborn areas of cellulite. The treatments are completed in multiple half hour-sessions. This device is unlike any other on the market.”
