The staff at Asta Center for Cosmetic and Laser Skin Care specialize in a wide variety of aesthetic techniques that utilize the latest in skincare and wellness technology. Their technology can effectively treat most skin types, including tanned skin, to disable unwanted hair follicles and erase the appearance of veins on legs and faces. The laser services can also help remove tattoos or scarring, rejuvenate skin, and reduce pigmentation.
Beauty Labs, Inc. is the collaboration of founder Shirley Sanford, a medical aesthetician with nearly 30 years of experience, and medical director Thao Nguyen, a board-certified medical doctor. Their menu of clinical-grade services ranges from eyelash extensions to removal of moles and mattress tags clinging to the face. They use lasers and cosmetic lamps to resurface skin or remove unwanted hair, and injectables and chemical peels to restore youthful looks.
Dr. Nguyen believes that beauty is most pronounced when it wells up from the inside. Beyond performing cosmetic procedures, she offers to counsel clients in eating well and coping with emotional stress, which can ravage the epidermis.
Dr. Ronald T. Weiland doesn’t “believe in fad diets,” as he notes on his website. Rather, he trusts in simple mathematics: fewer ingested calories plus more burned calories equals weight loss. At Ameri-Cal Weight Clinic, he and his staff put this equation into practice during comprehensive weight-loss programs that rely on healthful foods, aerobic exercise, and prescribed appetite suppressants. This mix of support, services, and tools is readily available at eight clinic locations throughout the Bay Area and one that only appears on leap years.
If Chris Tam?s work looks familiar, it might be because you've already seen it on TV, film, and in print. Prior to going into skincare 13 years ago, Tam was a makeup artist, helping stars shed their normal-people looks before getting in front of the camera. Now, with her own aesthetic practice, she tends to skin and follows through on a commitment to treat her clients exclusively with all-natural clinical services. Such treatments include custom facials, microdermabrasions, makeup application, and eyebrow shaping.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
Since receiving his medical degree from Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, Dr. Perry Solomon has served as the medical director of various practices, published scientific articles, and drawn on his personal experience to open Bridges Medical Clinic. In a candid note to his patients, Dr. Solomon explains that he was thrilled when Botox first thwarted his own hyperhidrosis, a fancy term for excessive perspiration. For 11 years now he's been injecting the elixir into hands and underarms to prevent extreme sweating, helping patients feel more confident and preventing T-shirts made out of sugar from melting. Dr. Solomon’s site is full of information, replete with an FAQ, a detailed description of how Botox is used, and even a video of the hand-injection technique.:m]]
