The board-certified physician, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses at Aura Skin Spa help to halt the sands of time with FDA-approved technologies and aesthetic services. They glide high-intensity alexandrite and YAG wavelength lasers over dermal layers, which deliver cease-and-desist letters to hair follicles and sculpt comely silhouettes with SmartLipo MPX treatments. A range of skin services including microdermabrasion allow the crew to exfoliate and moisturize fa?ades until they glow more than a radioactive lightning bug.
Brazil native Miria Kutcher brought a decidedly Brazilian touch to the ambiance and services at Venus Bodywork. The spa differentiates itself with an eclectic combination of European and South American aesthetic treatments not commonly found in the US. She and her well-trained team help each client through a menu of noninvasive treatments, tackling everything from wrinkles and cellulite to unwanted body hair. These med-spa services are offered amid warm fixtures such as wicker chairs, hardwood floors, and even blue-brick walls?which were repurposed from a schoolhouse in Atlantis.
Siblings and board-certified surgeons Dr. Lisa Kang and Dr. David Kang share more than the same parents; they work together at Serenity MedSpa, where they both specialize in aesthetic procedures. Beneath shelves of Botox, Latisse, and glo minerals products, Clear + Brilliant laser systems hum. Like R2-D2?s high-school reunion, the rooms are crowded with high-tech machines, including Smartlipo, Cellulaze, Liposonix and Ulthera.
Dr. Sherry Fong’s interest in holistic medicine came about after a heartbreaking diagnosis: her 94-year-old grandmother had cancer. The news came in 1994, before the Internet age, so Sherry spent countless hours poring over medical and nutrition books to study every possible way to care for the woman who had raised her. Her grandmother eventually recovered from the disease and lived to be almost 100 years old. This experience inspires Dr. Fong’s work today to assist women with holistic anti-aging, weight loss, detoxification, and healthy living at La Vitalitee. Her offices in San Francisco and Daly City both aim to empower women to take control of their weight, health, and aging process with body-sculpting treatments, and skin-tightening services that can turn back time more effectively than writing "1987" on every page in a day planner.
