As a board-certified podiatrist, Dr. Fardin Hakakian can treat just about any ailment from the ankle down. From heel pain to hammer toe, he addresses them all by drawing on the knowledge he's gleaned over more than 15 years in private practice. He soothes plantar fasciitis, zaps nail fungus with noninvasive lasers, and drags errant piggies back from the market—all in an effort to restore health to one of the hardest working parts of the body.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Dr. James Splettstoesser partially owes his education to his feet. Football and baseball scholarships brought him to South Dakota State University, where he completed his premed studies. As a result of his athletic activities, Dr. Splettstoesser suffered a spate of foot and ankle injuries, leading him to recognize the importance of proper podiatric care. He began studying podiatry, eventually establishing a private practice in Santa Barbara, where there was high demand due to residents having as many as two feet.
For more than 36 years, Dr. Splettstoesser has privately treated podiatric patients with cosmetic and medical concerns. He addresses arch problems, analyzes painful conditions, and even helps heal the same sports injuries he used to suffer. In addition to treating everything from skin to soft-tissue conditions, Dr. Splettstoesser eradicates unsightly—and occasionally painful—toenail fungus with laser-light treatments.
Father and son team Drs. Joseph T. and Salvatore A. Garofalo diagnose and treat pedal problems with laser treatments and surgical procedures. The doctors oversee superficial foot issues such as warts and fungus, which succumb to the heat of laser light, while reconstructing flat feet and arthritic joints with microsurgery techniques.
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.
