"You don't have to be famous to be fabulous!" That's the motto at Backstage Beauty Lounge, where clients get treated like pampered stars. The facial services echo this with names including Hollywood Faux Face Lift, which infuses skin with Image skincare products, and Hollywood Secret facial, which includes an anti-aging mask that no one knows about. Treatments are conducted by aesthetician Tina, who specializes in microdermabrasions and peels to help her clients look and feel younger.
The clinical aestheticians at trioSkincare have always performed facials and peels that take a scientific approach to controlling blemishes and aging. But in 2008, the center added a new dimension, taking on plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David Hicks, M.D. With the doctor on board, the clinic has expanded to cover such medical services as Botox injections and photofacials with the Sciton laser system. The center uses only paraben-free products, and their ultramodern machinery works on all skin types with the exception of shedding snakeskin.
The physician-supervised and highly trained staff at Norcal Medical focuses its energies on weight-loss treatments, dermal fillers, and Botox sessions. They consult with clients to find the best of five injectables to firm and hydrate their skin. Their medical-weight-loss center finds slimming strategies to suit clients of all ages, and Zerona laser liposuction helps achieve the results that diet, exercise, and constant fidgeting can't accomplish. Each painless treatment results in no redness, swelling, or downtime for clients, who can have the procedure done during their lunch breaks. Dr. Lana Burkhead presides over the clinic's celebrations of youth.
Dr. Ronald T. Weiland doesn’t “believe in fad diets,” as he notes on his website. Rather, he trusts in simple mathematics: fewer ingested calories plus more burned calories equals weight loss. At Ameri-Cal Weight Clinic, he and his staff put this equation into practice during comprehensive weight-loss programs that rely on healthful foods, aerobic exercise, and prescribed appetite suppressants. This mix of support, services, and tools is readily available at eight clinic locations throughout the Bay Area and one that only appears on leap years.
At Renew Body Sculpt, the key ingredients for achieving a slimmer silhouette include a balanced diet, exercise, and light. The technicians are in charge of delivering the latter element?they administer body-contouring treatments that reduce fat through light and heat, tightening areas such the arms, stomach, and legs. They have both the i-Lipo and Lipo-Light systems at their disposal. During appointments, pads placed on the body emit light, emulsifying fat cells and sending their contents to be processed by the lymphatic system. The treatments are noninvasive and don't require any bed rest, unlike surgery or wearing a corset on every limb. Whole-body vibration therapy is also available to enhance the metabolic process.
Make no mistake, however: the staff does not consider their services to be quick fixes. Their overarching focus is on healthy lifestyles, of which inch-loss is only one part. Dietary consultations, exercise programs, and screenings for metabolic imbalances help the center create a customized wellness approach for each client, in turn empowering them to obtain a sustainably svelte physique.
Forever Thin is a medically supervised weight-loss clinic. The team conducts comprehensive physical exams, blood work, hormone analyses, and metabolic-rate tests to determine the most effective weight-loss protocol for their clients. The individual protocols transform each client?s mind and matter with a combination of FDA-approved supplements, laser treatments for cellulite, and tips on nutrition, exercise, and positive thinking.
