When Dr. Shahed S. Rahman helps someone to lose weight, he’s not just looking at a number.

He also offers the aesthetic augmentation with Latisse eyelashes, chemical peels, and Botox and Juvéderm injections.
For more than four decades, Soboba Medical Group's physicians have funneled their expertise into weight loss and nutrition, led by board-certified internist Dr. Allen Jay. Their custom treatment plans, based on each client’s history and weight-loss goals, incorporate medications such as nutritional supplements and lipotropics. Each plan facilitates initial weight loss, but also aids with long-term physical maintenance, preventing damaging yo-yo dieting.
To complement the weight-loss programs, the center offers supplementary treatments. Body wraps with vitamin B12, for example, are designed to relax and re-energize clients.

Dr. Feilteau, D.C. and the staff at Non-Surgical Wellness Inc. facilitate weight loss through non-surgical means. Specifically, through the use of Zerona treatments, which use non-thermal and non-heating cold lasers to target and eviscerate fat cells. Zerona differs from other body contouring treatments in that the equipment never touches the skin; clients lay down on a heated table and slip on headphones if they like, while the staff aims a red beam of light at problem areas. This light liquefies superficial fat cells, which are then easily flushed out of the body via digestion. The entire procedure takes roughly 40 minutes, and can help clients slim down and tone up without having to undergo surgery or convert every room of their home into a sauna.
