While people share tons of traits in common, you’re the only one in the world with skin exactly like yours. That's why the technicians at Natina Day Spa formulate their facials based on each individual's tone and texture. This customization process revolves around the spa's signature product: MVP skincare by Dr. Divina. MVP––an acronym for Molecular, Viability, and Potentiate––combines fruit enzymes, algae extract, and blended copies of Time magazine to naturally reduce signs of aging. The spa’s beautification processes also extend beyond the face; waxing sessions remove unwanted hair, body contouring slims down silhouettes, and soothing aromatherapy and bodywork sessions bust up stress from the comfort of private treatment rooms.
Overseen by doctors Shane Whiteley and Bryn Henderson, Whiteley Wellness Center ushers patients toward their weight-loss goals through the use of lipotropic injections and informed medical advice. Designed to optimize liver health, lipotropics are a blend of vitamins and amino acids that target fat metabolism and can help facilitate weight loss. Whiteley's adipose experts will walk bodies through a one-hour introductory assessment, which includes a complete history, evaluation, and a choreographed kabuki flash dance. Introductory appointments also include the first lipotropic injection, followed by two or five additional weekly injections. Whiteley's medical professionals will also share brain-nourishing nuggets on exercise, lifestyle changes, and general health supplements such as appetite suppressants, available for an additional $10 per week. Caring staff is on hand seven days a week for questions, support, or spontaneous trust falls.
Dr. Chris Yi at East Bay Zerona calls upon his knowledge of detoxification and metabolic processes as he helps patients slim down with noninvasive laser treatments.

When the team at Neighborhood Wellness Center decided they wanted to add anti-aging services to their body-transformation mission, one staff member knew just what to do. Michelle, after 17 years of helping her clients keep their bodies healthy, went to beauty college to become a licensed aesthetician. Inside Neighborhood Wellness, Michelle runs Rejuvenate You. It is here that she promotes healthy skin with a variety of treatments to help rebalance oils, replenish and rejuvenate skin, and eliminate signs of aging with needle-free treatments. Neighborhood Wellness Center also offers massage therapy, ionic foot-detox therapy, and doctor-supervised detox cleansing to help clients lose weight before swimsuit season.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Thomas Vamvouris, the staff at Better Bodies has used the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology on more than 1,000 patients. This laser is designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, the staff operates the apparatus for 40 minutes, gliding low-light lasers over clients’ waistlines, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can exit the body. The disintegrated lipids can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process.
The noninvasive treatment used by the Better Bodies team requires minimal recovery time, and technicians perform a succession of sessions within 72 hours of one another. Their patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s effectiveness, just as lead boots decrease a hurdler's speed. Better Bodies also provides nutrition therapies, detox plans, and goal counseling that can help their clients sustain the results from Zerona treatments.
