In Scott Crawford's world, fitness is everything. First drawn to the importance of healthy living during a soccer career that would see him play professionally, Scott's interest initially centered on staying fit enough to take the pitch. However, he also found himself intrigued by the psychological side of wellness. This curiosity led him to earn degrees in psychology and study in Ph.D. programs for somatic and sports psychology. Along the way, he never neglected his physical side; after his playing career ended, he earned a slew of training certifications. Soon, he held licenses in personal training, bodywork, and yoga from governing bodies ranging from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and Stott Pilates to The Body Therapy Institute the White Lotus Foundation.
After cutting his teeth as a trainer at exclusive clubs and resorts throughout Texas and California, Scott finally blended his twin interests, founding SOMA Get Fit in 2007. There, he earned renown by devising custom-tailored wellness programs that combine goal-specific training with a holistic blend of mental-wellness counseling, Pilates, yoga, and nutrition education. Depending on his initial consultations, clients might sweat through adventurous sessions of beach and mountain training, ramble across forest paths on mountain bikes, or work their way through overnight retreats. This all-encompassing approach earned him a star-studded client list; past participants in his sessions include Calvin Klein, Michael Jordan, and Katy Perry. The press caught wind of his work, too, with glowing reviews appearing in the pages of Marie Claire, Sunset, and the Hollywood Reporter.
Now working with the Montecito Aesthetic Institute, Scott delivers his signature massages and bodywork treatments to clients within the center's tranquil modern treatment rooms.

Mackenzie, the registered nurses, aestheticians, and physicians? assistants at Pacific Plastic Surgery help clients amp up their self-confidence with a wide offering of both noninvasive and surgical services. Dr. Mackenzie, who has studied at Johns Hopkins, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and Cornell University Medical Center, wields his extensive experience and know-how to perform tummy tucks, scar revisions, and face-lifts.

Med spas and day spas may appear similar, but in reality, they're about as different as a baby and the American president he's dressed as. In order to earn the name med spa, a business must employ physicians, who oversee the various beauty treatments, as well as a medically trained staff. That's because the services offered by med spas tend to be more invasive than those offered at day spas.
At Tre Jolie MediSpa, a board-certified surgeon leads a team that includes skincare specialists and a registered nurse with more than 35 years of experience. These experts seek to improve appearances with services that range from Botox and Juvederm injections to laser hair removal and laser vein therapy.
Tre Jolie MediSpa also fine tunes bodies with less invasive services, such as facials that use PCA Skin products, body waxing, and Latisse eyelash-enhancement serum.
Plush white furniture pops against the spa's taupe interior where technicians and aestheticians customize treatments to individuals. They use state-of-the-art technology during a range of cosmetic treatments. Lasers resurface tired complexions, as well as dissolve acne, hair and conspicuous leg veins. In other treatment rooms, the technicians draw upon products from Botox and Latisse to beautify faces before an important award ceremony or the Trampoline Wipeout Video Awards ceremony.
At Beauty Lounge Medical Spa, the staff strives to boost clients' self-image. To do so, they guide them through weight-loss programs, rejuvenate skin with exfoliating dermaplaning, and fill wrinkles with Botox. Licensed medical professionals also wield lasers designed for hair removal, body sculpting, vein removal, and photofacials.
Dermatology and Laser Medical Center's Alex Khadavi knows so much about skincare, he's a go-to expert for both celebrities and day-to-day patients. The board-certified dermatologist and industry innovator founded Advanced Skin and Hair, a company that uses years of clinical research to develop products for hair loss, acne, and signs of aging. Using his expertise in the area of blemish abolishment, Dr. Khadavi helped a friend of Tori Spelling get rid of acne before her big day on an episode of the Oxygen network's Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings. He used his Clearogen protocol to assist a self-conscious teen with her severe acne on an episode of The Tyra Show, and appeared on Extra to promote his natural Revivogen formula, which is designed to reverse hair loss caused by genetics or sandpaper pillowcases.
Dr. Khadavi is also the center's chief cosmetic surgeon and specializes in medical procedures, such as Mohs micrographic surgery for skin cancer. He's written numerous magazine articles on cosmetic treatments, and is a national trainer for Botox, Juv?derm, Restylane, and advanced laser treatments.
