Lavoro Laser’s doctors of chiropractic—Dr. Michael Ruscio, Dr. Jordan Giang, and Dr. Justin Marchegiani—and the staff go beyond simply administering med-spa treatments, dispensing technologically enhanced services designed to help clients obtain their ideal physique. Office technicians use specialized i-Lipo systems equipped with focused lasers that, like their sci-fi counterparts, cause fat to vanish with a beam of light, and keep parasitic aliens from taking root in one's body. Medical-staff members meet with each patient to screen for metabolic imbalances that may hinder treatment progress before technicians saturate bodily areas to help reduce cellulite visibility. To ensure clients can maintain their results, they meet with knowledgeable associates for dietary consultations to discuss nutritional advice and practice sample exercise programs.
Led by Jun (John) Cao, licensed acupuncturist and graduate of the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, Active Acupuncture Partners specializes in pain treatment and offers services to treat a wide variety of common conditions including type 2 diabetes, arthritis, allergies, digestive disorders, restless legs, and stress-ball addiction. Your visit to the treatment facility will commence with a thorough consultation, during which Jun Cao will skillfully assess what ails you and devise a treatment that suits your individual needs. During acupuncture sessions, small needles are strategically applied to address current conditions of concern, rerouting the body's flow of energy and manipulating its channels to get your Qi ready for primetime. As part of your visit, you will also receive a tui na manipulative therapy massage, which features traditional techniques that have been practiced in China for more than 2,000 years and have been used to treat chronic musculoskeletal disorders and other conditions.

It seems Dr. Shahin Fazilat has had a hard time scratching his itch for education. The board-certified plastic surgeon first bolstered his medical degree from Howard University School of Medicine by completing general surgery training at The Washington Hospital Center. Then came his fellowship at the National Institutes of Health, followed by a yearlong cosmetic surgery apprenticeship, and finally another fellowship in hand and microsurgery at Stanford University. All this schooling and training serves him well at his practice, where he performs all of the surgical and nonsurgical procedures himself instead of entrusting them to a guy in a New Jersey Devils jersey who insists he can totally do surgery. To list a few of his duties, he doles out Botox injections and Vi Peel chemical peels, conducts liposuction treatments, and performs breast lift and reduction procedures that make as few incisions as possible.
Dr. Jay Bansal has performed more than 20,000 successful LASIK procedures since his 1994 certification by the American Board of Ophthalmology. Dr. Bansal, a physician trainer for IntraLase technology and the medical director of LaserVue Eye Center, performs every single LASIK procedure at three of the center’s four locations: San Francisco, Mountain View, and Walnut Creek. He specializes in a blade-free process using iLASIK wavefront technology, which relies on advanced lasers and enhanced optical imagery to improve a patient’s chances of achieving 20/20 or better vision while decreasing their chances of experiencing nighttime blurriness. In addition to LASIK, LaserVue’s American Board of Ophthalmology-certified eye surgeons and ophthalmic technicians offer several types of cataract surgery, as well as treatments for other ocular conditions such as dry eye or glaucoma.
