Troubled by her own struggles with dry, sensitive skin, Joanna Christiaan-Lundt decided to take a proactive approach and began learning more about basic skincare techniques. This initial research sparked her passion for aesthetics?a passion that would eventually become a career as she continued her studies, attending a formal beauty school and working alongside a physician who practiced aesthetic medicine.
At Christiann Esthetics, she applies all of this knowledge while designing personalized skincare treatments for her clients. Her facials use a variety of approaches to leave skin looking youthful and radiant. In addition to indulging skin with everything from Vitamin C-rich products to medical-grade collagen masques, she also offers chemical peels and microdermabrasion procedures, which helps conceal fine lines and sun damage.
Dr. Victor Manuel Nava's extensive training and surgical career have taken him across the country and back again. After an internship in Baja, California, he completed his general-surgery residency in Wilmington, North Carolina. After 14 years in the Tar Heel State, he came back to California in 2002 and opened his own private practice, where he puts his extensive training and artistic touch to good use performing a full slate of cosmetic procedures, including facelifts, breast augmentations, and liposuction. Not all of his services are surgical, though; he also offers laser hair removal and acne treatments, as well as dermal fillers that diminish wrinkles and render skin smoother than a newborn bowling ball.
Under the supervision of Dr. Jon Dresser, a staff of nurse practitioners and registered nurses bolsters client confidence and boosts well-being with noninvasive aesthetic services. Qualified medical staff employ the Palomar StarLux 500 laser?which is outfitted with broadband light energy, a vacuum, and a cooling system?to optimize laser hair-removal treatments and acne or anti-aging facials. Qualified medical staff administer all laser therapies and inject dermal fillers such as Botox, reassuring patients with expert medical advice about their results, aftercare, and probability of attaining immortality. The space's capacious waiting room is painted an energizing shade of lime green, and scattered sofas and oriental rugs exude a welcoming, homey feel.
Board-certified surgeon and vascular specialist Dr. Syd Garfinkle has been practicing medicine in the Sacramento area for more than 35 years. Over three and a half decades, he has become an expert at wiping out unsightly veins using a variety of nonsurgical methods. During sclerotherapy treatments, Dr. Garfinkle uses injectable medications to collapse and dissappear spider veins while diverting blood back into healthier vessels. Alternatively, for vericose veins, he can guide a thin laser fiber into the veins to zap them shut during endovenous laser treatments (EVLT).
Whether with a transformative surgical procedure or a quick, noninvasive treatment, the specialists of Smart Healthcare Solutions can leave faces and bodies renewed. The center battles facial wrinkles and discoloration on several fronts. With IPL photorejuvenation, skin cells are showered with powerful rays of light to banish brown spots and boost collagen production. The staff also polishes away dullness and texture problems with the Silkpeel, an alternative to microdermabrasion that buffs away dead cells while infusing nourishing serums deep into the skin. Bodies, meanwhile, benefit from the specialists' skills with a range of contouring and fat-banishing procedures. Treatments such as SmartLipo and Tickle Lipo improve upon traditional liposuction with cutting-edge technology that reduces pain and downtime, while ultrasonic Vaser Shape firms and smooths cellulite without a single incision or papier-m?ch? application.
Three accomplished naturopathic doctors lead the team at Human Reconstruction, combining their knowledge of both conventional and alternative medicine to treat their patients. This multidisciplinary approach has enabled them to create a diverse palette of individualized medical services, including natural face-lifts that use the patient's blood to ease wrinkles and infertility treatments. Dr. Heather Wdowin-Weitman pairs her extensive education with her personal experience in sports medicine?she's circumnavigated the globe with only a backpack and a tiny animal guide, sailed the Nile, and hiked the Grand Canyon on nine occasions, and her current clients include active athletes in the NFL and UFC.
