Dr. Richard H. German, FACS, Elite Med Spa's board-certified on-staff physician, has partnered with over 7,000 patients to help reach their weight-loss goals through healthy diet, exercise, and nutritional supplements. He and his staff, winners of Palo Alto Online's 2012 Best New Service Business award, custom tailor slimming plans to each individual client, taking into account medical history, BMI, and nutrition needs, then support dieters with weekly check-ins or long-term guidance. Dr. German also holds certification in facial injectables such as Botox or Juvederm to keep skin looking fresh and supple. Additional services include hormone replacement therapy, laser hair removal, medically supervised weight management, and photofacials. A complimentary consultation is included with each service.
ForeViva Medical Clinique's treatments are grounded in the idea that when people feel good, they look good. From long-term weight loss and hormone replacement programs to laser hair removal and beauty injections, Dr. Joelle Osias and her staff have plenty of tools to take on skin problems or unwanted weight. The doctor places special emphasis on creating a trusting, one-on-one relationship with each client, tailoring programs to their individual lifestyles and naming her staff members after them.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Thomas Munyon, the staff at Munyon Dermatology harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid deposits can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
At San Jose Laser Center, Dr. Gregory H. Phan MD leads a team of professionals dedicated to maintaining their clients' eye health and razor-sharp vision. They treat eyes with LASIK and cataract surgery, and outfit them with contact lenses, a wide selection of frames, and monocles for third eyes with astigmatism. The staff can accommodate a diverse client base, as they speak a cumulative total of seven languages, including Cantonese, Spanish, and Panjabi.

Aspire Laser & Medspa's huge range of services definitely impresses, as do the qualifications of the staff that perform them. Dr. Mittal Patel, for instance, puts her degree to work in aesthetic medicine, particularly specializing in anti-aging treatments. The registered nurse backs her up at the Medspa, most often performing beauty injections, laser skin resurfacing, and Venus Freeze skin tightening. The aesthetician, on the other hand, specializes in caring for only one part of the body: the skin. She performs chemical peels, facials, and even microcurrent radio-frequency treatments that teach your body what it feels like to be a beautiful antenna.
