Led by Dr. Douglas J. 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. A specially designed, multifaceted medical weight-loss program helps patients get fit healthily, and the center?s noninvasive spa services get faces in shape for special events and awkward family photos.
Celebrating Women Center’s head, Dr. Adrienne Lara, has created a practice where women of all ages can feel respected and well-cared-for when they need a doctor’s attention. Dr. Lara, who did her residency at Harvard, can care for her patients’ health starting in adolescence, when routine exams are the standard. During their reproductive years, she can assist with preconceptual counseling, prenatal care, and preventative gynecological checkups. For patients in later adulthood, the doctor can help draw up a plan to comfortably transition into menopause. In addition to looking after patients’ health, Dr. Lara also offers aesthetic services to help boost adult patients’ confidence. The medical-grade treatments include dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, which can smooth fine lines and add volume to the face for a more youthful look. The center’s HD liposuction treatment is a delicate process that can remove unwanted fat from problem areas with only 72 hours of downtime—fewer days than it would take to bake loaves of bread in the shapes of those same problem areas.
Aesthetician Kimberly Cizek expertly slathers Cirepil hard wax onto skin for a quick eviction of hair on faces, torsos, and limbs. When she is not busy waxing off unwanted fuzz from clients’ bodies, she spreads her knowledge of proper waxing techniques to other aestheticians and novice candlemakers.
At Body Envy, chiropractor Chris Alvarez and his team use the FDA-approved i-Lipo system to sculpt slimmer silhouettes. While doing so, Dr. Alvarez calls upon his extensive experience treating amateur and professional athletes to champion a healthy lifestyle and guide his clients toward their weight-loss goals. He supervises patients' biweekly i-Lipo visits, which bypass traditional surgical liposuction by trimming targeted bodily areas with noninvasive laser light. The procedure is ideal for areas of stubborn fat and cellulite that have not responded to diet, exercise, or eviction notices.
Wielding paddles and small laser devices, the staff members at Van Bryce Chiropractic Clinic work to erase inches of fat using cold-laser beams. To further aid patients' efforts to shed weight, staff members may employ a whole-body-vibration platform, which works to spur muscle contractions and boost circulation. Staff members can also advise patients on proper nutrition or the center's detoxification programs.
If your body is a temple, Sacred Soul Spa employs architects. Its team of spa techs renovate the body's exterior, adding a golden hue to skin with spray tans, reducing the appearance of cellulite during body wraps. Endermologie treatments combine massaging, rolling, and sucking along the skin's surface to break up fat cells and remove cellulite, and airbrush tanning uses an organic paraben-free solution to bronze the skin without exposure to UV radiation.
