Smooth and Skinny is a fat-zapping facility where a staff of expert medical aestheticians uses cutting-edge, noninvasive technologies to reduce cellulite, leaving bodies slimmer and more toned. The med spa’s multitude of treatment options includes Endermologie and VelaShape systems, which use everything from light and radio frequencies to massage rollers and suction to target the deep-seated connective tissues that harbor cellulite and its various criminal accomplices. In addition to fat-fighting technology, Smooth and Skinny offers other beautification treatments including spray tanning and teeth whitening.
At Riverwalk Medical & Wellness, Dr. Edgar Ardila promotes overall well-being with more than 20 services, ranging from hormone-replacement therapy to cosmetic skincare treatments. The doctor provides immunizations and medical care for chronic diseases and also performs physical examinations, which are often required before trips to the moon or long-term astral projections. In addition to medical services, Dr. Ardila aims to turn back time with Botox, dermal fillers, and an array of facelifts and peels.
When Dr. Shahed S. Rahman helps someone to lose weight, he’s not just looking at a number. The licensed physician and surgeon knows that slimming down isn’t just about fitting into a pair of skinny jeans, it’s about overall health. Obesity can lead to back pain, diabetes, and heart disease, so Dr. Rahman keeps Skinny Me Weight Loss and Aesthetics Center stocked with latest in medical-weight-loss services. Assisted by registered nurse practitioner Karen O'Hara and registered nurse Jennifer Seguancia, he eviscerates unwanted flab with techniques including hormone balancing and prescription medications. In conjunction with nutrition plans and exercise, vitamin-B12 injections can boost metabolism and energy levels. He also offers the aesthetic augmentation with Latisse eyelashes, chemical peels, and Botox and Juvéderm injections.
For more than four decades, Soboba Medical Group's physicians have funneled their expertise into weight loss and nutrition, led by board-certified internist Dr. Allen Jay. Their custom treatment plans, based on each client’s history and weight-loss goals, incorporate medications such as nutritional supplements and lipotropics. Each plan facilitates initial weight loss, but also aids with long-term physical maintenance, preventing damaging yo-yo dieting.
To complement the weight-loss programs, the center offers supplementary treatments. Body wraps with vitamin B12, for example, are designed to relax and re-energize clients.
At Family & Aesthetic Clinic, the team of physicians specializing in family medicine can just as expertly administer a physical as prescribe Latisse, an FDA-approved eyelash thickener. With a goal of offering attentive treatment to each patient, the versatile doctors offer treatments that run the gamut from weight management and family medicine to Botox injections and other beauty services. In addition to weekly appointments, the doctors offer Saturday and Sunday appointments, to ensure a client’s busy schedule does not get in the way of caring for their health.
Dr. Charles Nguyen knows that losing weight is as much a mental process as it is a physical one. As a psychiatrist, he partners his clinic’s weight-loss programs with behavioral therapy, medication management, and motivational techniques. He and the rest of the center’s staff focus on real-world diet programs, eschewing fad diets in support of maintainable practices, such as limiting carbs or filing a restraining order against bacon. They build their programs with realistic parameters in order to produce long-term results.
