In science fiction, lasers are capable of shooting down a spaceship, teleporting a superhero, and everything in between. At Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetic, they do only slightly less. The team's laser systems can permanently reduce unwanted stubble, even out skin tone, and erase the incorrect 35th decimal in a botched Pi tattoo. Of course, they don't do all that on their own. They're helmed by a team of aesthetic experts, supervised by Dr. Lad Rubaum, a plastic and laser surgeon with more than 30 years of experience. He and his team complement the laser treatments with other beauty services, such as chemical peels and Botox injections with subtle, natural-looking effects.
At Folsom Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, Dr. Shahriar Mabourakh designs procedures to suit clients? specific needs, ensuring that their experiences at the clinic are as positive as their results.

Injectable treatments, including Botox and Juvederm, minimize wrinkles by improving the volume of skin or impeding muscle activity that causes facial lines.

Since opening Casa De Bellini Salon & Spa, Juanita Valencia has established a warm atmosphere that welcomes clients seeking style transformations. Her efforts have paid off, earning her repeat business and turning many of those clients into friends. Inside the 3,000-square-foot salon, she leads a team of stylists that specializes in haircare for both men and women. Team members prep hair for a trim with a shampoo and hot towels, accent natural hues with single-process color and highlights, and condition with natural keratin. They also smooth faces and shoulders with microdermabrasion treatments, add dazzling color to nails during mani-pedis, and knead away buried stress with full-body massage sessions. Their signature hot rock mani-pedi combines elements of all three services, reenergizing skin with a sugar scrub and seaweed mask, trimming and shaping nails, and simmering away tension with a hot-stone massage for arms and lower legs.
At Bella Aesthetics, the team works hard to make their work look invisible. Clients who come to Bella for custom cosmetic procedures do so in part because of the doctors' emphasis on natural-looking enhancement. That goes for all the work the doctors and staff perform, whether they're combating wrinkles with Botox and Dysport injections or dissolving varicose veins with sclerotherapy. The only work the team can't help getting attention for is their custom weight-loss plans, which help clients trim down with prescription injections.
