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.

Most cosmetic surgeons know a lot about the face. But as a dentist and plastic surgeon, Dr. Alex Rabinovich knows how the mouth plays a big role in determining ideal facial aesthetics. Rather than only focusing on lifting the skin, reshaping the nose, or combining two eyes into one, Dr. Rabinovich considers the role teeth and jaws play in the overall harmony of the face. No matter what facial-sculpting procedure he performs, Dr. Rabinovich mostly uses local anesthesia or twilight anesthesia to help prevent complications.
Before any treatment, patients can take advantage of thorough consultations at the homey treatment center with brick walls, hardwood floors, and a large flat-panel television. Dr. Rabinovich occasionally leaves the comfort of these confines to participate in medical missions abroad that provide children in need with free reconstructive surgery.
A European education and training at Estée Lauder give Regina, the eponymous founder of Regina European Skin Care, a unique take on skincare. The popularity of her services grew over the years, leading her to open her own salon in 1995. Armed with high-end products, such as Éminence, Peter Thomas Roth, and Yon-Ka, Regina cleanses complexions with a gentle, massaging touch and leaves flesh glowing brighter than a jack-o'-lantern full of comets. Her waxing treatments depilate faces and bodies, and microdermabrasions send dull, tired cells packing.
Stylists at Red Union Salon wield products from lines such as Phyto, Logics for Matrix, Redken, and Goldwell to add layers of color or imbue strands with rich shine. Like the world’s slowest carousel, colorful displays of local art rotate every season, and houseplants and hardwood floors imbue the space with an apartment-like feel. Besides trimming tresses, hair helpers can also sweep strands into updos for weddings and or long, looped braids for hands-free lasso contests.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert A. Harvey relaxes facial creases with FDA-approved treatments. While patients rest, the steady-handed doctor injects Botox or Dysport into the wrinkle-plagued area with a tiny needle, smoothing away flaws for 3–6 months with all the ease and grace of a pirouetting Zamboni. The injections treat crow's feet, ease furrowed brows, and can prevent future facial fault-lines from forming. For most patients, the procedures require no downtime, so they can return to their daily lives without further ado.
