Dr. Amanda Rosaasen of Moorpark Family Medicine targets fine lines and wrinkles with muscle-relaxing Botox injections. Delivered by skinny microneedles, Botox works to smooth skin on foreheads and necks without performing a headstand atop a bowling-ball spinner. Full results usually appear several days after the 5- to 10-minute treatment and may last for up to four months.
Your sit-down with the doc includes a health-history review, postural analysis, a review of your vitals, and a consultation regarding current health concerns. Dr. Golub will also examine specific spinal segments using motion palpation, a technique designed to detect and assess dysfunction between the joints. After acquiring new insights into your spinal insides, you'll then receive a smooth, 30-minute massage tailored to your individual needs. For more information on Dr. Golub and his practice, check out his bio page or set your VCR to record every rerun of The Doctors, where Dr. Golub recently made a guest appearance.

Many people may have misgivings about turning to cosmetic injectables such as Botox and Dysport, and no one understands those hesitations better than Dr. Sherly M. Soleiman, MD. Dr. Soleiman is a board-certified physician who has worked in urgent care facilities and family practices, but some years ago, she decided to expand her expertise into the field of cosmetic injectables after she suffered from a poorly-administered injection herself. "I had the medical skills and coordination in my hands to do better," she told Ventura Boulevard magazine.
Today, Dr. Soleiman continues to attend regular lectures and courses that allow her to deliver cosmetic injections as safely and efficiently as possible; in the past, she has even taken sculpting classes to enhance her understanding of facial symmetry. To help fight the aging process, she might recommend Botox, Dysport, or Juvederm injections, which help smooth wrinkles and diminish other signs of age, such as facial lines or a tattoo of Charlie Chaplin's autograph. And, in further pursuit of beauty and youth, she also utilizes the Obagi Skin Care System and can proscribe the lash-growing treatment Latisse.
Body Sculpt Wraps are designed to spot-reduce bulges by sending toxins on a one-way trip out through the lymphatic system. By targeting trouble spots with non-invasive radio energy, technicians are able to break up the toxins and fats that populate the adipose cells' overstuffed walls. Then, the wrap's herbal and enzyme solution penetrate the outer layers of skin, drawing out the excess cellular gunk and flushing it from the area with the body's own lymphatic system. When combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, these detoxifying treatments can help melt away inches and form a firmer physique.
