As co-founders of Lifestyle Solutions MedSpa, Dr. Michael Holloway, medical director, and wife, Shannon Holloway, who serves as the company’s executive director, have developed an outstanding reputation for transforming clients both physically and emotionally. The MedSpa has a 12-year reputation for delivering medically directed weight management and medical spa services to clients throughout the region.
Throughout the years, many of their clients drove from The Villages and surrounding areas to Ocala. Now, all these state-of-the-art services will be offered closer to home. The couple recently opened a second location in The Villages, and it’s safe to say this magnificent 3,500-square-foot facility will leave a lasting impression.
The new facility is located in a serene area off U.S. Hwy. 441 in the beautiful Oaks at 138th medical complex. As clients approach the MedSpa, their senses will tune in to the unique exterior features, such as the natural and soothing sounds of a four-tiered waterfall just in front of the grand corner-tower entrance.
Their minds will become even more at ease after seeing the facility’s striking décor, which resembles a world-class resort. After a brief stop at the elegant coffee station, clients will feel a sense of home as they approach the beautifully adorned lobby, which features an awe-inspiring bubble wall behind the reception desk. The bubble wall provides a peaceful and calming effect, as mesmerizing air bubbles constantly flow and change colors: green, red, blue, purple and gold.
“De-stressing is very important because stress is a major issue in our society and a much overlooked part of health,” Dr. Holloway said. “Stress affects all aspects of one’s health, including struggles with weight, blood pressure, diabetes, energy levels and mood. We provide a real-life approach to help our clients not only lose weight but learn how to have successful long-term outcomes.”
“We’ve really raised the bar not just with our weight loss programs but all of the medical spa services we offer,” Shannon said. “We continually research and incorporate the latest, state-of-the-art technology in the marketplace, like our CoolSculpting® non-invasive, body-contouring technology that can help our clients rid themselves of that stubborn diet- and exercise-resistant fat, which helps to achieve that sleek and sculpted body one may desire.”
“Residents of the greater Villages community have asked us repeatedly to open a second practice that was closer to them,” Dr. Holloway said. “We’re excited that we can better accommodate them. We offer something for everybody. You may not need to lose weight, but you might be in need of one of our many full medical spa services we provide.”
Let’s get pampered
Lifestyle Solutions MedSpa is a medical practice that blends result-oriented treatments with the upscale feel and atmosphere of a destination resort. The wealth of services offered include weight loss, CoolSculpting®, Botox®, Restylane®, customized facials, including the incredible Hydrafacial®, peels, microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, IPL photofacials, fractional skin resurfacing, permanent makeup and massage, just to name a few.
“In addition to being a certified CoolSculpting® site, we are one of only a few practices that offers ‘dual-sculpting,’ which is very beneficial to our clients,” said Shannon. “For example, if they want to get rid of fat on both love handles, then we can use two machines at once rather than have them come for two separate appointments. This cuts treatment times in half.”
The MedSpa’s technology is all FDA cleared and proven. The Holloways pride themselves on offering only evidence- and outcome-based models of care.
“We’ve done our due diligence by carefully researching each of these procedures,” they said. “That’s why we have an incredible success rate in everything we do here. If we do not feel a treatment or procedure will provide a client with the desired result, then we do not incorporate it into our practice model.”
It’s time to renew and refresh
For two years, the Holloways have carefully thought out every detail in creating not only a practice with a unique design but also how to maximize efficient use of space. Their hard work has certainly paid dividends.
The meticulous attention to detail and stunning décor will certainly leave patients feeling breathless. Crape myrtles, palm trees, butterfly gardens, four-tiered waterfalls and stone columns dot the landscape. Inside, as a client undergoes treatment in a spa room, they can maximize relaxation by gazing skyward at the glimmering fiber optic star dome ceiling that features shooting stars and soothing colored sunrises and sunsets.
After treatment, the client will experience the spa bathrooms that contain beautiful mosaic tile with a state-of-the-art body shower, crystal vanity light and a beautiful lavatory faucet that illuminates to provide a visual of the water temperature (red is hot, green is warm and blue is cold). Each spa room and treatment room features a unique décor and color scheme, including eye-catching paintings that hang on the wall. The bronze and copper colored restrooms in the waiting area add even more elegance, style and artistic beauty to the facility.
In addition, the MedSpa offers a unique spa package for a girls’ day out or couples’ escape where they can undergo simultaneous treatments and in between treatments enjoy a healthy catered lunch in a private, quiet oasis outside while listening to light music and admiring a butterfly garden and tranquil fountain. A simple massage is another wonderful way to de-stress.
Without question, you’ll be hard pressed to find a medical spa that can compare with the breadth, depth and scope of services offered at Lifestyle Solutions MedSpa. The wonderful amenities, the unmatched sense of caring and the high level of attentiveness will undoubtedly leave patients feeling rejuvenated and wanting to come back for more.
Simply put, this is a place that you must experience for yourself!
