When visitors walk into Dolce Vita Day Spa for the first time, it can be hard to stop staring. Gauzy curtains filter in the buttery, yellow light that dances off a full-wall mural of rocky cliffs jutting into the sea. Guests can further feast their eyes on private treatment rooms outfitted with invigorating orange walls, or Tuscan tiles, private tubs, and massage tables. They can choose from a bounty of treatments, creating a spa day with a loved one complete with champagne and couples' massages, pedicures, or facials. More targeted treatments include noninvasive anti-aging facials that turn back the clock with microdermabrasion, antioxidants, and youth-reviving story time.
Dr. Robert Winslow harnesses more than 20 years of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery. The registered nurses iron away the signs of age with a number of medical beauty injections, including Dysport, Restylane and Radiesse, and licensed estheticians are on staff to provide other beauty treatments and permanent makeup.
Rather than approach each disease as if it were a worm inside a tomato, the doctors and clinicians at Quality Medical Center take a more holistic approach: they first identify the worm, then investigate the rest of the garden for possible infestation. By examining a wide scope of factors such as family genetics, nutrition, and lifestyle habits, the team can narrow their focus to the root causes of ailments. Their treatments?which range from influenza vaccinations to B12 injections?can set the stage for long-term health goals such as losing weight, staying free of disease, and maintaining the mental acuity necessary to dodge low-flying hang gliders.
"Looking young never gets old." Co-owners Lori Mitchell and Jakkidi Reddy steer RIM Aesthetics with this motto in mind. They champion minimally invasive, scientifically based procedures to rejuvenate skin marked by the sun or siblings with crayons. The practice counts peels, laser cosmetics, fillers, and facials among its treatments, and clients' testimonials praise the team's talent.
The laser technicians at Creekside Medical Spa carefully aim beams to remove hair, veins, and tattoos from the skin. When it comes to facial blemishes, the laser services separate into two specialized treatments: SmartSkin laser rejuvenation and IPL laser facials. The first combats hyperpigmentation, brown spots, and wrinkles, and the latter fades the effects of sun damage more effectively than moving to a dank cave for six months.
It's not all flashing lights at the spa, however. The licensed skincare professionals within also rely on skincare products from Obagi and SkinMedica to refresh certain complexions. Their customized facials address a wide range of symptoms, from dryness to acne, and the formulas used to nourish pores can also be purchased to aid at-home regimens. The spa menu is rounded out by a list of injectables, including Botox and Restylane. These products smooth out wrinkles from between the brows, around the nose, and near the mouth, leaving faces looking firm and youthful.
Folsom Surgery and Vein Center may have "surgery" in its name, but many of the services it offers require minimal incisions. Take SmartLipo, for instance?rather than subjecting clients to the invasive techniques and long recovery of liposuction, the treatment uses laser technology to break down fat with just one small incision. To treat spider veins, the VNUS procedure just requires anesthetic and a dose of radio frequency, and sclerotherapy calls on only a few injections. Of course, for more severe issues, board-certified surgeon Dr. Mohammed Siddiqui can harness more than three decades in his craft to heal what ails his patients?from digestive organs to the endocrine system?as quickly and comfortably as possible. The doctor also irons away the signs of age with a number of beauty injections, including Botox, Juv?derm, and Dysport.
