The team of doctors and nurses at Before-N-After Weight Loss and Wellness don't operate their center the same way others might. They supplement their weight-loss and anti-aging services with full-time supervision and support from medical professionals, helping their clients get results. Over time, that particular blend of treatment and expertise has won the team a fair amount of recognition. Among their awards, they boast a prestigious Black Diamond rating from Allergan?the maker of Botox and Juv?derm?and were voted the Favorite Weight Loss Center in 2012 by readers of North County Times.
At Sente Bella, beauty specialists help patients achieve their desired aesthetic with holistic and clinical therapies. Technicians diminish signs of aging with clinical injections and deploy lasers as emissaries of firmer skin and follicular death. Patients work with dieticians, acupuncturists, and massage therapists to balance their bodies, and watch 3-D modeling videos to envision surgical procedures that adjust their contours into beach-ready shapes or avant-garde compositions for museum display. Aromatherapy induces relaxation during traditional body treatments that polish every inch with scrubs, herbal tonics, and products from the organic, antioxidant-rich Eminence skincare line.
At Optimal Health & Weight Center, Dr. Ellyn Levine, health coach Dr. Scott Krishel, and physician assistant Eyob Kidane help their patients to not only get healthy, but stay that way. One of the trio's specialties is counseling, particularly in the areas of nutrition, fitness, sleep, and stress. They also administer exams, dispatch metabolism-spurring B12 shots, and help patients manage diabetes and heart disease.

Taking Shape?s team of well-trained practitioners improve physiques with body-slimming nutrition training and laser-lipo treatments. During these treatments, infrared energy simulates the effects of exercising by opening up fat cells at the hips, thighs, buttocks, and midsections. This causes them to release their fatty acids, water, and glycerol into the body and shrink, resulting in lost inches. After each slimming procedure, patients enhance their results by hopping onto a whole-body vibration machine to help burn calories.
Juice enthusiasts at this healthy eatery take the old saying, "You are what you eat," to heart. They know that proper nutrition is a pillar of good health and proper exercise, which is why their flavorful drinks and hearty sandwiches are made with fresh, organic ingredients. Their fruits drinks eschew sugar-filled concentrates for natural versions that are bought, delivered, and drained in front of customers that same day. Additionally, their gourmet wraps and sandwiches calm hunger with crisp veggies and meats cut when they’re ordered, not plucked from a prepackaged container or stolen from the cafeteria of the salami-cloning lab down the street.
