Board-certified plastic surgeon Derek Shadid helms Shadid Plastic Surgery Associates, combining his medical knowledge with modern technology to give patients their desired results with the minimal amount of discomfort. Shadid lends skilled hands to procedures that sculpt and contour the entire body or focus on facial features. But not all of the surgeon's procedures are surgical—an on-site medical spa welcomes clients for less invasive treatments, such as chemical peels, laser hair reduction, and Botox injections that smooth lines from frowning or excessive winking. And while experienced nurse-aestheticians administer many of the med-spa treatments, Shadid always takes part in patients’ initial consultations and oversees their care.
The board-certified physicians at The Vein Clinic of Temecula Valley want to see more skin. They notice that patients with varicose and spider veins often hide the purple and red squiggles with longer clothes, thicker makeup, or hot-dog costumes. To restore clients’ confidence, the physicians address veins with services including tried-and-true injections and advanced laser treatments. Surface laser treatments deftly fade red spider veins and red freckles without breaking the skin or incurring patient downtime.
The technicians demonstrate their dedication to patients by creating a pleasant experience that continues beyond the initial treatment. During each varicose-vein treatment or PRP skin-rejuvenation treatment, the staff play the client’s choice of music. After varicose-vein treatments, unsightly red bumps often develop. Rather than letting these heal on their own—which may take weeks—the staff invite patients back for a complimentary treatment to banish these bumps, leaving legs as smooth as an oiled bald cap.
PicMed's medical doctors and lab technicians root out the underlying causes of health concerns by conducting blood and health screenings, physicals, and vaccinations. Staff usher patients into a cheery, marigold-hued clinic, and a mobile lab drives to clients' homes or up the trunks of their tree forts. The clinic recently expanded its scope to include a menu of med-spa treatments, as well as cutting-edge treatments such as Botox and hormone-replacement therapy.
BA MedSpa & Weight Loss Center helps patients not only reach their desired weight but also maintain it. The center’s two-phase weight-loss program is aggressive, beginning with an 800-calorie diet—the potentially taxing effects of which are largely neutralized by the HCG injections that accompany it. Since a true lifestyle change is necessary to keep the weight off, the center then provides recipes and other instructions for establishing healthy habits.
There are other ways to improve your appearance at the clinic, too. Clients stop in for aesthetic services, such as wrinkle-reducing beauty injections, laser-administered facials, and hair-removal treatments. They also undergo permanent cosmetic applications, which allow them to wake up each morning with flawlessly drawn eyebrows, perfectly lined lips, and incredibly well-hidden butterfly-kissing scars.
Sand-colored beech-wood flooring and ocean-blue walls give Lawton Advanced Skincare & Laser Center’s modern med spa a beachy feel, beginning visitors' relaxation experience as soon as they step in the door. Away from the front waiting area, aestheticians rejuvenate complexions, ridding skin of tell-tale signs of aging such as sun spots and fine lines with a repertoire of solutions that vary in intensity, including Obagi and Skinceuticals skincare products, medical facials, dermal-filler injections, and Lutronic eCO2 fractional-laser treatments. Exteriors can be further beautified as skin transforms from pallid hues to sunkissed glows with UV-bed tanning sessions; the gentlemen-centric facial reveals a healthy glow beneath layers of clogged pores and dead skin cells covering up hidden stashes of Xbox games.
Dr. Miriam Nosrati and the New Image Dentistry staff improve oral health with comprehensive examinations as well as restorative and cosmetic treatments. Aided by digital x-rays, Dr. Nostrati scours chompers for problem areas, capping cavities with composite fillings and performing mouth makeovers using crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Cleanings evict caked-on plaque and tartar, and whitening solutions aim to restore gleam to discolored gumstones. Teeth-whitening procedures can brighten teeth 6 to 10 shades, either during an in-office treatment or with take-home trays that can be used over the course of two weeks or the time it takes for the earth to spin on its axis 14 times, whichever comes first.
