Elan Medical Spa was founded by two physicians—Drs. Madeline Andrew and Paul Kivela—who have struggled with the same health, fitness, and aging concerns as their patients. They have researched and trained with some of the top industry experts, learning all they can about weight-loss services such as the HCG diet and noninvasive body contouring, as well as downtime-free aesthetic treatments ranging from cosmetic injectables to fat-dissolving Viora Reaction radio-frequency sessions. The specialists also design executive health programs for occupational athletes, CEOs who take the stairs to their top-floor offices, and other high-powered clients who need to function at optimum hormone and fitness levels.
Genesis Health Institute's co-owners, Dr. Douglas L. Weed and James Aguilar, promote personal health as they leverage wisdom acquired from a combined half-century of practice in the wellness industry. The institute?s captains draw from backgrounds in physical rehabilitation, chiropractic care, and integrative therapies as they design weight-loss plans based on ultrasound body-composition tests. Three health programs emphasize the institute's four pillars of health?detoxification, diet, proper exercise, and the use of targeted nutraceuticals?to help clients lose weight, boost metabolism, or contour the body. Supplements streamline success toward these goals, providing all the essential vitamins and minerals to increase bodily health and decrease cravings for orange crayons.
Dr. Ronald T. Weiland doesn’t “believe in fad diets,” as he notes on his website. Rather, he trusts in simple mathematics: fewer ingested calories plus more burned calories equals weight loss. At Ameri-Cal Weight Clinic, he and his staff put this equation into practice during comprehensive weight-loss programs that rely on healthful foods, aerobic exercise, and prescribed appetite suppressants. This mix of support, services, and tools is readily available at eight clinic locations throughout the Bay Area and one that only appears on leap years.
The laser technicians at Central Valley Laser Center help slenderize patients with the Lipo-Light laser. During the headlining treatment, patients don light- and heat-emitting pads on problem areas. The laser prompts the fat cells to release their contents for later removal through the lymphatic system?a process that can be expedited through light exercise or speed walking away from the center?s pet grizzly bear. In addition to contouring physiques, the treatment can help diminish the appearance of cellulite.
No matter what the aesthetic wish, the team at ReVitalize Skin Care can help. Led by medical director Dr. William Johnson and nurse practitioner and founder Genevieve Dace, the experts can help clients achieve their goals with an array of cutting edge treatments. Ultrasonic cavitation, for instance, helps break down fat deposits in hard-to-tone areas like the thighs and waist without invasive surgery. Vitamin-rich injections, meanwhile, might help boost the metabolism so that the body can efficiently burn calories and secret messages that must be swallowed after reading. Advanced skincare treatments reverse signs of aging with lasers, pulsed light, and radiofrequencies.
The clinical aestheticians at trioSkincare have always performed facials and peels that take a scientific approach to controlling blemishes and aging. But in 2008, the center added a new dimension, taking on plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David Hicks, M.D. With the doctor on board, the clinic has expanded to cover such medical services as Botox injections and photofacials with the Sciton laser system. The center uses only paraben-free products, and their ultramodern machinery works on all skin types with the exception of shedding snakeskin.
