Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At more than 40 Southern California locations, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically-based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.
"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who?s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that?s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
Pretty Foo Foo Salon & Spa, located next to Ontario Mills, peeks through lush greenery and beckons passersby into its calming oasis, where beauty boosters and relaxation experts pamper visitors with the same emphasis they displayed on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Addition. In a flurry of scissor snips and Bumble and bumble products, Pretty Foo Foo's stylists renovate outmoded coiffures with haircuts, color treatments, and a slew of salon services. The aestheticians also send visitors on the path to epidermal perfection with PCA Skin Solutions' fragrance- and synthetic-free serums that erase blemishes, sunspots, and grocery lists scrawled on the forehead.
Dr. Lothar McMillian's childhood role model was his physician, and he tries to honor that inspiration by helping others in his turn. He offers a variety of services that focus on the skin and combating the signs of aging, such as microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, and laser acne treatments.
The team at True Beauty Aesthetics specializes in noninvasive procedures, from laser hair-removal and elos skin-tightening treatments to photofacials and Botox injections. Consultations precede treatments, so clients have a chance to discuss their envisioned results and warn the staff of any allergies to hearing the word “laser.”
Skin Perfect's hair-despising laser was sent back through time to terminate unwanted hair quickly and safely using handcrafted photons that harmlessly pass through the skin to directly dissipate hair follicles. Technicians can evict pesky hair from the bodily zones of both men and women with high precision. They handle light lassos like hair-wrestling cowpokes, with each beam carefully calibrated for empathy and small talk. Laser hair removal often bequeaths a longer-lasting hairlessness than waxing or shaving, and while not completely painless, it's less painful than laser hair addition.
