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.
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.

At Vanity Weight and Beauty Institute, patients can lose weight around their middles through E-Lipo treatments, an FDA-cleared procedure that combines two kinds of electrical stimulation. To kick off treatments, cranial electrical stimulation is applied across the earlobes to bring about a state of relaxation. This treatment has also been known to help treat insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Next, bioelectrical stimulation is applied to the abdomen to burn calories and slim down and tone waists.
Board-certified surgeon and vascular specialist Dr. Syd Garfinkle has been practicing medicine in the Sacramento area for more than 35 years. Over three and a half decades, he has become an expert at wiping out unsightly veins using a variety of nonsurgical methods. During sclerotherapy treatments, Dr. Garfinkle uses injectable medications to collapse and dissappear spider veins while diverting blood back into healthier vessels. Alternatively, for vericose veins, he can guide a thin laser fiber into the veins to zap them shut during endovenous laser treatments (EVLT).
Whether with a transformative surgical procedure or a quick, noninvasive treatment, the specialists of Smart Healthcare Solutions can leave faces and bodies renewed. The center battles facial wrinkles and discoloration on several fronts. With IPL photorejuvenation, skin cells are showered with powerful rays of light to banish brown spots and boost collagen production. The staff also polishes away dullness and texture problems with the Silkpeel, an alternative to microdermabrasion that buffs away dead cells while infusing nourishing serums deep into the skin. Bodies, meanwhile, benefit from the specialists' skills with a range of contouring and fat-banishing procedures. Treatments such as SmartLipo and Tickle Lipo improve upon traditional liposuction with cutting-edge technology that reduces pain and downtime, while ultrasonic Vaser Shape firms and smooths cellulite without a single incision or papier-mâché application.
