Dr. Amanda Rosaasen of Moorpark Family Medicine targets fine lines and wrinkles with muscle-relaxing Botox injections.

Body Sculpt Wraps are designed to spot-reduce bulges by sending toxins on a one-way trip out through the lymphatic system. By targeting trouble spots with non-invasive radio energy, technicians are able to break up the toxins and fats that populate the adipose cells' overstuffed walls. Then, the wrap's herbal and enzyme solution penetrate the outer layers of skin, drawing out the excess cellular gunk and flushing it from the area with the body's own lymphatic system. When combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, these detoxifying treatments can help melt away inches and form a firmer physique.
