From styling celebrity hair to revitalizing complexions with relaxing facials, the team at Willo Aveda, an Aveda concept salon, aims to fill local mirrors with visions of beauty. Stylists of five different experience levels wash and rinse hair before breathing new life into languishing strands with a tailored cut and blow-dry. Alternatively, hair artisans can deploy Aveda's 97%?99% naturally derived formulas to refresh hair with a single-process color or nourish locks with conditioning plant oils that leave hair shinier than a freshly licked ring pop. The stylists at Willo Aveda also stay engaged with their clients through an active blog that celebrates lauded hair happenings. Most recently, the business collaborated with other Aveda salons to help set a Guinness World Record for the most money raised for charity in 24 hours through haircuts alone.

At Advanced Care Foot & Ankle, Dr. Craig Wilkes's 20 years of podiatric expertise are bolstered by a broad spectrum of diagnostic and restorative technologies that treat conditions such as plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, fractures, bunions, and tendinitis. In addition to maintaining surgical privileges at some Mercy and Sutter hospitals in the Sacramento and Roseville area, Dr. Wilkes examines feet with x-rays and ultrasounds to construct a complete image of each patient's foot, uncovering pain-causing biomechanical faults or migratory ears. He then treats aches with as little invasiveness as possible, opting for simple solutions such as customized orthotics or noninvasive shock-wave therapy before drawing on his repertoire of reconstructive surgeries.
The laser technicians at Central Valley Laser Center help slenderize patients with the Lipo-Light laser. During the headlining treatment, patients don light- and heat-emitting pads on problem areas. The laser prompts the fat cells to release their contents for later removal through the lymphatic system?a process that can be expedited through light exercise or speed walking away from the center?s pet grizzly bear. In addition to contouring physiques, the treatment can help diminish the appearance of cellulite.
