At Zerona Laser OC, a team led by Dr. Matthew Goda zaps away extra inches with the help of cold laser technology. During sessions, Erchonia's signature Zerona lasers liquefy lipids in stubbornly plump body areas, shrinking fat cells without affecting any other tissue or government-implanted homing chips. After each 40-minute session, extra water helps flush away the fat floating within intercellular space, with light exercise burning off what remains. To achieve optimal results, Dr. Goda recommends at least six sessions, spaced two days apart.

Before Dr. James Allen opened Allen Chiropractic, he worked as a sports chiropractor for the Los Angeles Clippers. From his work helping athletes heal, not to mention his own experience recovering from an ACL reconstruction that cut short his college football days, Dr. Allen developed a keen interest in how people could recover from and prevent injuries without drugs or surgery. Today, he shares this expertise by offering traditional chiropractic care in conjunction with specialty services such as spinal decompression, myofascial release, kinesio taping, and laser therapy pain relief. Through this integrative approach, he's helped clients overcome conditions such as chronic lower-back pain, arthritis, and biceps strained from too much posing.
Reclining in a massage chair, you enjoy a paraffin-wax treatment as the scents of aromatherapy drift up your nose and ease away the day's tension. Though this sounds like a scene set in an upscale day spa, it's actually the treatment clients receive when they visit Harmony Dentistry. Kicking cold and clinical vibes to the curb, Harmony Dentistry's office could easily be mistaken for a spa—thanks to a designer-created reception area, art-covered walls, and friendly staff. Still, the dentists that stroll through the office halls don't simply rely on decor and glue traps to convert first-timers into regulars; equipped with the latest technologies and advanced laser procedures, they skillfully handle most any dental procedure while producing as little discomfort possible.
Dr. Frederick L. Stafford leads the team at Contours as they reshape physiques and rejuvenate skin. They trim fat from bodies with high-tech VelaShape and Endermologie treatments or through weight-loss programs and personal training.

Large windows grant clients picturesque views of adjacent Lake Mission Viejo.
At Comfort Laser Clinics, experienced physician Samuel Sunshine, MD, and his staff of trained and licensed registered nurses oust unwanted follicles, tattoos, and inches with an array of treatments. The specialists wield powerful pulses of light to zap follicles for a fraction of a second, permanently stymieing their ability to sneak back onto bodies while disguised as fake mustaches. Permanent body art gradually fades under the exposure of the ConBio laser, while other laser treatments help to tighten sagging skin, hone in curves, and rid toenails of sprouting fungi or topiaries.
