Treating the cosmetic blemishes that can appear on aging skin requires a forward-looking approach. Overseen by Drs. Hratch Karamanoukian and Raffy Karamanoukian, Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa keeps pace with the passage of time by constantly seeking out new advancements in technology, skincare products, and cosmetic procedures.
The center’s cache of technology includes cosmetic laser systems that work to improve skin tone and texture by addressing fine lines, acne scars, and scratch-and-sniff tattoos. Beyond light, these and other systems can also use sound waves or radio frequencies to firm and lift faces. Even the more traditional spa procedures at the clinic pamper clients with medical-grade products and equipment. The crystal-free microdermabrasion system uses a diamond-encrusted titanium wand to smooth away impurities, and facials with botanically derived balms and vitamin C rejuvenate complexions.
At Folsom Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, Dr. Shahriar Mabourakh designs procedures to suit clients’ specific needs, ensuring that their experiences at the clinic are as positive as their results. Mabourakh and his staff enhance natural features with plastic surgery and improve skin texture and tone with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, facials, and laser genesis, a treatment designed to reduce fine lines and shrink pores. Injectable treatments, including Botox and Juvederm, minimize wrinkles by improving the volume of skin or impeding muscle activity that causes facial lines.
Christopher Phen, DDS sets smiles straight with a roster of cosmetic dental services. Smiles take on a brighter gleam with tooth whitening treatments and mouths get a root-to-tip makeovers with implants and crowns. Veneers add an attractive façade to crooked or discolored teeth and complete sets of dentures returns full grins to patrons.
At Kids Care Dental Group, the dentists make kids comfortable by using a variety of gentle, dental techniques. Toddlers and teenagers of all ages frequent the office, where skilled dentists accomodate their needs in a comforting environment. Screens on the walls and ceiling let little patrons play video games and watch movies to help them relax during their visit.
Dr. Barbara Persons, a board-certified plastic surgeon, pares her experience as a surgeon with an artistic vision in all of her procedures. Her areas of specialty include both aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, body contouring, facial rejuvenation, and helping new mothers to get back to 'pre-baby' weight.
Before Dr. Michelle Place—a specialist in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery—began helping clients discover new looks for themselves, she went on a journey of self-discovery herself, receiving her credentials through her own version of the Great American Road Trip. Born in South Africa, Dr. Place studied biology in California, attained her medical degree in Texas, and completed a surgical internship in Virginia before moving back to the Golden State to complete general surgery and plastic surgery residencies. At her private practice, the board-certified plastic surgeon and her team enhance clients’ faces and bodies with procedures ranging from breast augmentation and liposuction to face-lifts, laser hair removal, and eyelid surgery to make the eyes appear younger in lieu of covering them with funky dorm-wall tapestries.
At Carmichael Dental, Sacramento native Elizabeth Huynh, DDS, stays up-to-date on new dental techniques through hundreds of hours of continuing education. She uses her training to provide services ranging from dental implants to teeth-straightening Fastbraces that can refine smiles in less than a year. Her earth-toned reception area reflects her passion for patient comfort: it features hardwood floors, sleek black leather chairs, and a purple orchid, all of which create an ambiance relaxing enough to recover from just having taken the SATs under a jet engine. As a mother of two, the caring dentist is also a strong supporter of Shriners Hospitals for Children and the Children's Miracle Network.
