After working at several different fitness chains, personal trainer Brad Glaser carved a new approach to fitness when he opened his own personal training business. Glaser, who holds five nationally accredited certifications, customizes workouts for each client according to their fitness goals, including dropping pounds, prepping for a marathon, or becoming a marble statue's body double.
Silken pillows, oversized hand fans, and orchids create a small sanctuary away from the bustle of daily life. A softly lit hallway is blanketed in golden yellow walls and doors that lead to private treatments rooms. Inside, licensed massage therapists relax muscles with deep-tissue and shiatsu techniques, warmed stones, and aromatherapy. In other rooms, licensed aestheticians scrub faces clean with facials, buff bodies with sugar and salt scrubs, and wax unwanted hair on legs and tails.

The technicians at Jannae Beauty Institute?a leader in nonsurgical cosmetic procedures since 2007?use a proprietary, four-step process to make their beauty-boosting treatments efficient, effective, and comfortable. First, they analyze clients' bodies in order to prescribe the most effective course of treatment. Afterwards, they offer recommendations regarding nutrition, lifestyle, and dietary supplements to promote overall health. Then they perform an advanced med-spa procedure using cutting edge technology?whether it's radio-frequency photonics for a facial or a laser pointer for a play date with a kitten. Jannae Beatuy Institute's procedures have led to them being featured on Good Day LA. Finally, the staffers make sure to design a maintenance plan so the procedure's results last over a longer period of time.
As a second-generation plastic surgeon and a fourth-generation physician, Jon M. Grazer, MD, had big shoes to fill. His father, Dr. Frederick M. Grazer, popularized “tummy tuck” procedures and introduced liposuction to the United States in 1982, revolutionizing body-contouring therapies that had previously consisted of squeezing into skinny jeans. Dr. Jon M. Grazer, who today specializes in body-contouring and reconstructive-surgery procedures, earned two bachelor's degrees, two master's degrees, and a doctorate in medicine before training in general and microsurgery and completing a fellowship in plastic surgery. With an array of publications to his name, Dr. Grazer’s expertise is sought by media outlets such as the San Francisco Chronicle.
For those wondering whether or not they need vision-correction surgery, the staff at Feinerman Vision Center has developed an online quiz as the first step in a comprehensive consultation process. After answering a series of questions—such as “Would your career activities improve if you were to be less dependent on glasses?” and “Are you sure your glasses wouldn’t be jealous?”—prospective patients are told what vision-correction techniques might be best for them.
Of course, no surgery takes place until board-certified surgeon Dr. Gregg Feinerman confirms the quiz’s notions during a follow-up consultation. Dr. Feinerman specializes in both LASIK and cataract surgery. He uses high-tech equipment to sharpen eyesight, including a blade-free LASIK procedure that relies solely on lasers to reshape the cornea. During Crystalens surgery, a different type of vision-correcting treatment, he replaces the eye’s natural lens with a new, flexible one. Many of his treatment methods, which also include custom cataract surgery, take about 15 minutes to complete and incur little downtime.
