Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Umang Mehta may specialize in rhinoplasty and other facial and eye surgeries, but his practice?s treatment list extends far beyond these services. He and his staff, including a licensed aesthetician, also deliver wrinkle fillers, laser cosmetics, and peels. After visits, complexions leave youthful and glowing like a phosphorescent corsage on prom night, and testimonials reveal that clients appreciate the team?s friendliness as much as they value their aesthetic expertise.
Dr. Edward Rubinstein and the staff of West Coast Foot Laser understand the embarrassment and discomfort caused by nails infected with onychomycosis. Besides limiting the desire to wear open-toe galoshes, the nail fungus can cause painful health issues if left untreated. The center combats these infections with powerful beams, which typically require a single session to eliminate the problem at the source and allow healthy nails to gradually appear.
At Premier Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon James Newman, MD, FACS and his fellow board-certified plastic surgeons enhance beauty within their state-of-the-art surgical suite. Dr. Newman completed his residency and a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Stanford University, where he now serves on the clinical faculty. He completed an additional fellowship with an emphasis on laser surgery after recognizing the large role lasers now play in surgical procedures. The renowned surgeon also lectures internationally and has authored more than 30 surgery-related scientific publications and a coloring book.
Dr. Newman and his staff perform a variety of medical procedures, ranging from face-lifts and Vaser ultrasonic liposuction to minimally invasive body-contouring and enhancement techniques. They can also combat signs of aging via nonsurgical means, including dermal fillers that smooth wrinkles and Vaser Shape sessions that, like a rearview mirror in place of a bathroom mirror, make bodies look smaller.
Jean Couch—author of The Runner’s Yoga Book, producer of the DVD Your Pain-Free Life, and founder of Balance Center—started her career by studying healthy populations of people throughout the world. She learned that they tended not to experience back and joint pain as pervasively as does the United States population. From her studies, Couch believes that this pain can be eased with correct posture. She and her instructors animate that research at Balance Center by leading sessions based on the movement patterns of people without back and joint pain, just as adults who want to look cool base their movements on the angsty slump of teenagers. The teachers lead introductory, ongoing, and intensive classes in posture correction for sitting and walking.
