According to Doctor of Chiropractic Dinh V. Le, Spinal Care of Stockton's founder and clinical director, new technology has revolutionized the treatment of pain. Dr. Le now augments his core chiropractic services with advanced, noninvasive treatments such as FDA-cleared DRX9000 spinal decompression, which has been featured on TV's The Doctors for its ability to repair damaged spinal disks and thereby remedy lower-back pain. Dr. Le also accelerates healing with super pulsed laser therapy, which can stimulate metabolic activity and resuscitate dead strobe lights. In addition to straightening spines to their potential, Dr. Le also assists clients with their weight loss needs.

Dr. Tareq Ali, a board-certified physician, has been practicing emergency and family medicine since 1993, realized one of his lifelong dreams when he opened Manasra Medical Spa. The 2009 Patients' Choice award recipient was touring his new medical spa's facility, listening to the soothing sound of the water tinkling down his indoor waterfall and checking each room's personal air-conditioning unit. Dr. Ali even stopped to relax on one of the waiting room's luxurious leather couches.
Practicing aesthetic medicine since 2006, Dr. Ali has perfected his laser skills at Mansara Medical Spa, using concentrated beams of light to eliminate unwanted body hair or battle hyperpigmentation and spider veins across the body. He has also acquired the innovative microdermabrasion technology DermaSweep. The patented technology infuses faces with essential vitamins while exfoliating and smoothing skin. Manasra also offers more traditional spa treatments, such as massages, facials, and chemical peels.
Almaden Valley Aesthetics? medical director, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Agheg M. Yenikomshian, leads a team of medical aestheticians and registered nurses that never perform exactly the same a procedure twice. The professional staff specializes in procedures including skin tightening, fraxels, photofacials, and cellulite reduction. Those looking to minimize the appearance of wrinkles may also enlist their expertise in administering facial fillers, collagen builders, and Dysport or Botox injections. In addition to its catalogue of medical services, the team also tailors non-invasive beautifying services to each client?s specific needs, whether they are minimizing stubble through laser hair removal or rejuvenating faces with various peels. Microdermabrasion treatments buff away dead skin while spa-style facials can hydrate skin, infuse pores with Vitamin C, or address common teen skin imperfections such as acne and drivers-ed notes jotted on the forehead.
Board-certified physician and surgeon Dr. Rani V. Ramachandran loves fashion. Even after she earned a medical degree from the University of Madras, nabbed a master's degree from Loma Linda University, and completed a residency at the University of California and a fellowship at Stanford University, she still loved fashion, which surprisingly is not a synonym for learning. So she combined two passions and opened Apsara Aesthetic Medicine, where she and her staff can help to beautify complexions during aesthetic services such as laser hair-removal treatments, Botox injections, and microdermabrasions. Dr. Ramachandran also infuses her practice with positive energy, and her stylish flair accents the waiting room in the form of colorful paintings, decorative mirrors, and a clock with hands that sport exquisite diamond rings.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rex Moulton-Barrett and his staff of hair whisperers use Sciton laser beams to smooth bewhiskered skins. In three sessions of small-area laser hair removal (a $107/treatment value), the laser's pulsating light heats the inside of hair follicles until their own melanin destroys them, much as lion tamers are destroyed by their own love of practical jokes. Small areas eligible for liberation from follicle tyranny include the chin, eyebrows and forehead, underarms, sideburns, back of the neck, upper lip, and standard bikini line.
