Despite its name, Happy Feet ? Massage, Nail & Skincare doesn?t just make feet happy; it makes the whole body grin from ear to ear. Mixing Chinese medicinal herbs with techniques including reflexology and acupressure, the massage center?s therapists help eliminate tension and remove impurities. The centers immerse clients in bright traditional Asian decor, with plush, white beds complemented by red oriental lanterns, red curtains, and decorative art of Confucius jumping for joy after working out a kink in his neck.
At both Tahiti Breeze Sun Spa and Tantrum Sun Spa, a fleet of tanning beds and stand-up booths infuses skin with a golden glow. Alternatively, the Versa Spa spray-tan booth mists physiques with a UV-free tan, giving skin a natural beach-goer look without putting six tropical birds on it. Elsewhere in the spa, a solid basswood infrared sauna purges patrons' bodies of up to 600 calories, and teeth whitening stations turn pearly whites even pearlier.

Dr. Shervin Alborzian helms the Eye Center of La Jolla, where laser-powered iLASIK surgery updates the original LASIK procedure to sharpen vision for 99% of patients. A pre-operation consultation ensures a patient’s candidacy for the procedure, with the typical iLASIK candidate donning glasses or contacts to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, or seeing friends as hamburgers during periods of intense hunger. Dr. Alborzian then performs the surgery using only lasers, which boosts procedural safety. Boasting a 3-D mapping system, the now-bladeless surgery customizes itself to the layout and secret passageways ensconced in each pair of eyes. Afterwards, as research charts, 99% of patients achieve their intended level of correction. This Groupon also includes post-op visits one day, one week, six weeks, and six months after the surgery, and, if patients own a time machine, six hours before.
After earning his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine Degree from California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco and board certification in foot surgery, Dr. Kamran Jamshidinia and his associates opened a clinic to treat the foot faults that plague the body?s hardest-working part.

Located in the heart of Century City in Beverly Hills, the facility recently underwent a state-of-the-art renovation and received a new cadre of up-to-date technology and equipment. They address issues such as toenail fungus, ingrown toenails, and flatfoot-related ailments, or delve deeper, using advanced imaging such as MRIs, CT Scans, 3D imaging, and police-sketch artists to diagnose and treat foot and ankle problems and injuries, hammertoe repair, and bunion correction.
The clinic also treats patients in who require foot and ankle sports medicine, joint replacement, custom foot orthotic arch supports, and cutting-edge surgical and nonsurgical treatments of diabetic foot ulcers.
For the past 40 years, Dr. Edward Lazo has dedicated himself to the foot. A member of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, the doctor of podiatry helms his own private practice, where he and his multilingual staff, fluent in English, Spanish, Armenian, and Russian, tend to patients of all ages. After consulting with clients, the doc maps out the best plan for treatment, from simple removal of ingrown toenails, corns, and calluses to surgeries to correct foot and ankle disorders. Perhaps his most popular treatment, however, is laser toe-fungus removal. A common problem caused by injuries, unsanitary nail salons, or barefoot romps through a mushroom patch, toenail fungus has previously been treated, often ineffectively, with oral and topical medications. Dr. Lazo, however, calls upon more advanced technology?the FDA-approved GenesisPlus system, which uses laser light to target, heat, and destroy fungus buried beneath the toenail, usually in just one 20- to 40-minute session.
