Dr. Victor Manuel Nava's extensive training and surgical career have taken him across the country and back again. After an internship in Baja, California, he completed his general-surgery residency in Wilmington, North Carolina. After 14 years in the Tar Heel State, he came back to California in 2002 and opened his own private practice, where he puts his extensive training and artistic touch to good use performing a full slate of cosmetic procedures, including facelifts, breast augmentations, and liposuction. Not all of his services are surgical, though; he also offers laser hair removal and acne treatments, as well as dermal fillers that diminish wrinkles and render skin smoother than a newborn bowling ball.
A trained and experienced staff of nine helms East Sac MedSpa, doling out skin-resurfacing facial treatments fortified by advanced technology and a dozen types of relaxing massages. As soon as clients walk through the doors, a friendly staff member will offer them a beverage?a soft drink, coffee, wine?and lead them to one of three treatment rooms. Inside, an aesthetician analyzes skin type and condition before prescribing the most appropriate procedure, such as a glycolic peel, microcurrent face-lift, or LED photofacial, to eliminate signs of aging, acne, or biting children. Alternatively, visitors can opt for a relaxing Swedish, deep-tissue, or reflexology massage performed by a certified massage therapist.
Because many of its services produce the best results with repeat treatments, East Sac MedSpa creates an incentive to return by offering visitors the chance to become spa members?a status that includes complimentary chair massages, birthday gifts, and invitations to monthly wine parties.
In addition to skin-care treatments such as Botox and services with the Obagi Skin product line, Calvine Urgent Care is open 365 days a year to usher in a flurry of ailing patients so that the board-certified doctors and nurse practitioners can work their medical magic on non-life-threatening symptoms, from fevers to broken arms. Neutral-toned chairs and a flat-screen TV distract patients before Calvine's friendly team fixes them up with medical equipment, including x-rays, ultrasounds, and a full range of diagnostic tests for drugs, pregnancy, or hemoglobin. In case patients cross into more serious medical territory, the clinic's fully loaded procedure rooms come filled with intubation kits, EKGs, crash carts, and defibrillators for restarting hearts and toasting marshmallows. The office's staff helps urgent medical patients by taking them within 30 minutes of their arrival, as well as offering ZipPass, an online appointment scheduler.
New Body MD's staff specializes in combating the body-ravaging effects of time and enhancing patients' naturally radiant appearances by offering a range of procedures intended to bolster confidence. Dr. John Burnett and Dr. David Bowen combine their decades of experience in the fields of plastic, cosmetic, and reconstructive surgery as they perform everything from face-lifts to body-contouring liposuction. Surgeries aren't the only options available, though. The center's technicians also use cosmetic laser systems to rid bodies of unwanted stubble, improve skin tone and texture, or conceal the appearance of blemishes such as wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars. Additionally, the team can target unsightly cellulite with skin-firming doses of unipolar radio-frequency energy, and injectable dermal fillers leave faces looking as youthfully taut as a freshly inflated balloon animal.
