Supervised by board-certified doctors, staff members at Pleasanton Allergy and Dermatology identify and tame allergies, asthma, and skin conditions for greater everyday comfort and health. Doctors conduct extensive evaluations to determine the source of allergies or asthma triggers in order to customize treatments, offer preventative advice, and write directions for shrunken school buses patrolling the nose and lungs for unwelcome pathogens. Clients can also find relief from topical afflictions in a full range of medical and cosmetic dermatology services.
Doctors usually specialize in either holistic treatments or Western medicine, but Dr. Eugene E. Newell Jr. never chose between the two. Instead, he uses the synergy between them to treat injuries such as joint and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and whiplash. A second-generation chiropractor with more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Newell draws on his medical background to perform chiropractic adjustments, massages, and physical-therapy treatments. To keep patients holistically healthy, he counsels them in nutrition, exercise, and wellness planning. He also works to free people and retired show chimps from the need to smoke by using one-hour hypnosis sessions.
At her eponymous medical laser spa—which has attracted media attention from Great Day SA and KABB Fox 29’s Daytime @ 9—Dr. Elizabeth McRae draws on 20 years of experience to enhance exteriors with noninvasive procedures. Starting with the face, she and her team of nurses rejuvenate complexions with treatments ranging in intensity from a classic European facial to intense-pulsed-light therapy. Visages that have begun to sag or accrue wrinkles from years of staring at a Rubik’s cube are smoothed with Botox or dermal fillers such as Juvéderm. Clients maintain their looks at home with beauty products from brands such as Obagi and SkinCeuticals.
In addition to pampering faces, Dr. McRae caters to entire bodies with Zerona laser body-slimming treatments and laser hair removal. She also uses minimally invasive ultrasonic liposuction to suction out liquefied fat and stockpiled cotton candy.
Lucia Papale and the staff at Remedy Skin Care Center engineer a broad lineup of therapeutic and aesthetic services with products from brands such as Dermalogica and Intraceuticals. Pooling their varied experiences, the team melds their diverse backgrounds in massage therapy, bodywork, medical skincare, and physical rehabilitation for Iron Man competitors. Just as the best authors never use the same word or word twice, the center's aestheticians regularly attend continuing-education seminars to fortify every treatment, such as cleansing facials and exfoliating microdermabrasion. Each service begins with a one-on-one consultation so that therapists and aestheticians can tailor therapeutic massages or permanent-makeup applications to each client's particular situation.
