New Spa Services at Wellness By Design

by Roberta Bolduc

Integrative Medicine Specialist Dr. Connie Casebolt Carver, aka Dr. Connie, and her husband, Randy Carver, are owners of Greenville’s Wellness by Design (WBD), a multi-care, holistic wellness center and spa that provides a wide range of treatments ranging from bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), to ozone treatments for joint problems and chronic fatigue to Lyme disease and herpes. Dr. Connie emphatically states, “We are here for men, too. We are the answer for both women and men. Anyone who wants to feel better, look better, get rid of addictions—we are the Upstate’s “go-to”.”

WBD’s newest venture, a full service spa, boasts the Icon Aesthetic System that offers aestheticians the ability to provide a comprehensive suite of services: from hair removal, to wrinkle reduction, to scar and stretch mark treatment. Complementing this process is the ThreeForMe Laser Treatment: “a proven way to solve wrinkles, sun damage and facial veins all at the same time”.

Dr. Connie explains that the procedure is performed in two steps or “passes”. The first pass uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to gently renew the skin for a smoother looking appearance. The technology works by stimulating new collagen and elastin production. It’s reported that some minor redness and swelling similar to sunburn may occur for a couple of days, but makeup can be worn to conceal the redness. The doctor reports that continued improvements in the skin’s appearance is experienced after a course of one to three treatments.

Another skin treatment provided at the spa is TempSure Envi, a radiofrequency treatment that safely delivers consistent and reliable skin tightening.

Adding to the roster of skin care services at the spa is SculpSure, the world’s first FDA-cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis. This procedure is designed to remove fat from the abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs and outer thighs and is now available for under the chin area. It is said to offer a permanent reduction in eliminating unwanted fat cells “without surgery or downtime”.

Dr. Connie hails the benefits of the aesthetic offerings as “better skin tone, fat loss, better self-confidence”. She notes that, in the near future, Botox and fillers will be on the menu and soon to come is Vitalia for vaginal rejuvenation.

Another timely and restorative program at the wellness center is the Upstate’s only permanent Addiction Cure—with over 90% long-term success. This is done via an 8 hour per day IV that drips in a proprietary blend of nutritional compounds that directly target and restore the neuroreceptors that were damaged from the addictive substances.

Dr. Connie emphasizes the life changes that are realized: “being set free from uncontrollable urges and having the ability to live a normal life. The addiction treatment has been around since the 1980’s and has been successful in thousands of patients.”

Overall, she notes, “Our center offers more therapies and unique treatments than any other clinic between New York and Miami. There is no need to travel to an exotic location because we have it available here.”

Wellness by Design is located at 850 S. Pleasantburg Dr., Ste. 103, Greenville. For more information, call 864-559-8954 or go to WellnessByDesign.center.
