Dr. Keller and his medical team resuscitate skin from premature aging with advanced techniques in diagnostic, genetic, and cellular medicine. Help your visage’s garden bloom with a facial treatment that exfoliates and revitalizes skin, stimulating new cell growth. A double cleanse and steam exfoliation coaxes shy dirt and oil from the pores, before a SilkPeel microscopically exfoliates the skin's surface and delivers a topical dermaceutical to the layers below. Unlike a sandpaper slip 'n' slide, the noninvasive process doesn’t abrade the skin with rough, irritating particles. Following the sloughing of cells, an enzyme peel and dermal infusion targets each guest’s specific skin conditions. Faces are topped off with serum, cream, and sunblock to protect delicate mugs from the sun's over-enthused eskimo kisses.
Working under board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. David S. Goldberg, Monterey Skin Fitness Center’s licensed aestheticians work to halt the march of time with an array of skin-plumping peels and injections. Aestheticians offer guidance during every step of each treatment with a full evaluation and explanations for postpeel care. The 30–45 minute MicroPeel curbs breakouts, smooths wrinkles, and conditions and protects formerly fraught faces to maintain a freshly peeled appearance. The peel's immediate results make it ideal for a last-minute spruce on the way to extreme staring contests. Refinity peels take about 30 minutes to renew skin with a gentle application of glycolic acid, while protecting it with Cosmederm-7, a patented anti-irritation ingredient that reduces postpeel grouchiness for sensitive skin. Treat pimple-prone pores with a Vi peel, which lifts away scum, sun spots, and the appearance of scars while firming the skin. The 20-minute Vi peel yields visible results after about four days; results are maximized over multiple treatments.
Whenever she strolled down a sandy beach or marveled at the redwoods of a lush forest, LeTa Jussila would be reminded that Santa Cruz was the most beautiful place in the world. It seemed a shame to her that most people spent so much of their days inside houses and offices rather than taking advantage of the diverse landscapes of their surroundings. Inspired, she spearheaded the foundation of Optimal Health and Fitness?a multidimensional outdoor-fitness program.
Today, LeTa and her staff of trainers conduct energetic boot-camp classes at local beaches, forests, and mountain trails. They use the tools of their surroundings as exercise equipment, such as running up park stairs for a cardio workout. Encouraging well-rounded, healthy lifestyles, the instructors also conduct seminars on holistic topics such as stress management and meditation. Nutrition specialists, meanwhile, provide students with balanced meal plans and supervise detoxifying cleanses. The staff also offers various treatments popularized in the East, including traditional Chinese acupuncture treatments and rejuvenating qi gong stretching classes.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
Emergency Response Training’s classes, available throughout each month, equip healthcare providers with the adroitness and expertise necessary to respond to cardiovascular emergencies. The American Heart Association–certified training site gives nurses, emergency medical technicians, firefighters, and other first responders license to practice Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. In a small group setting, each two-day provider course imparts systematic skills for the recognition, assessment, and treatment of cardiac arrest. Licensed and professionally experienced instructors incorporate videos, lectures, and hands-on simulations to cover CPR techniques, airway management, rhythm recognition, and tools such as the automated external defibrillator (AED).
Lead by Dr. Tonya Fleck-D'Andrea, N.D., an all-female team of naturopathic doctors and massage therapists at Santa Cruz Naturopathic Medical Center soothes bodies with holistic care in a nurturing environment. First-time patients create a personalized treatment plan during a two-hour consultation with a licensed N.D. (naturopathic doctor). In these sessions, the doctors review lab work done in the past year, go over current medication, and discuss the client’s health concerns to establish a regimen designed to treat these issues and prevent conditions including heart disease, diabetes, and turf tonsils. The Center's specialists strive to establish an open dialogue with patients when tailoring therapies by performing physicals and ordering new lab work only as necessary. Precision healing also comes from the hands of licensed massage therapists, whose cross-training in Swedish massage, Craniosacral therapy, and acupressure create a single super-modality sent from the future to terminate knotted muscles and release stress-induced tension.
With more than 25 years in the medical field, Dr. Pamela J. Stuart has focused her attention for the past 10 years on rejuvenating complexions with noninvasive treatments at Physician’s Skin Solutions. Dr. Stuart commences all services with a personalized consultation that helps create each patient’s skin profile, which helps identify sun damage, textural problems, and unnecessary fine lines—the kind that cannot tell your future. In addition, all nonsurgical procedures, including dermal fillers, laser hair removal, and radio-frequency skin-tightening treatments, are performed by the skilled doctor. And to further foster healthy glows, Dr. Stuart and her team are armed with advanced skincare products from brands including Obagi and SkinMedica. They also stay up-to-date on the latest beauty treatments, such as age-reversing Allumera topical cream.
Elite Lab Testing's network of accredited medical reference labs and service centers helps patients take charge of their health and wellness with tests performed at more than 1,700 LabCorp locations across the country. These lab tests—which don't require referrals or doctor visits—cover a lot of ground. For example, with a single blood draw, medical professionals can check for the IgE antibodies that may be causing allergic reactions to insect stings, foods, pollen, mold, and younger siblings. They might spend the rest of the day screening blood-sugar levels, scanning hormone levels and thyroid health, checking for heart attack risks, and lifting the hood on the liver and kidneys. Customers can even order the same tests their health care provider does for routine physicals. Elite Lab Testing also performs drug screens, and offers affordable pricing packages and wellness programs that equip the health-conscious community with useful tools for constructing a healthy lifestyle.
A heartbeat, a grasping hand, a tiny yawn, a smile??these are the moments that make the long wait of expectant parenthood worthwhile. Yet often they go unnoticed. The singular snapshots provided by traditional sonogram technology offer only brief glimpses into the future. Lance Dursi, creator of Scanbabies, sought to give parents something more??something more personal and more reassuring. Initially an obstetric sonogram consultant, Lance worked until he gained registration from the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers. Now, with nearly 30 years of baby-scanning practice and thousands of baby scans under his belt, Lance records fetal inhabitants with 3-D and 4-D technology, yielding prints, digital images, and videos of the sonograms for later family viewing and projection onto Times Square billboards.
Physical therapist Anne Howard employs hands-on techniques to soothe joints, improve lymph function, and dull nerve pain. Namely, she uses laser therapy, manual manipulations, and an antigravity treadmill, which creates a lifting motion so exercisers can run with less impact on their joints and glass tennis shoes.
Like snowflakes, no two human bodies are alike. This is why Healthy Solutions 101 personalizes each of their natural health programs. With 14 types of tests, the staff has the investigatory goods to accurately assess the condition of each individual. Once intelligence has been gathered via blood work, mineral taste tests, and thyroid function tests, the team takes on health concerns through natural means that doesn?t require invasive procedures or synthetic get-well cards. Their recently renovated massage room was redesigned to promote relaxation and help clients achieve a sense of calm.
Dr. Craig Eymann of Aloha Chiropractic draws on more than 12 years of experience to help patients reduce their pain. Eschewing medications and surgery, he trains his hands on backbones and joints, nudging them into healthier positions to promote healing and improved mobility. But the doctor doesn't rely on his hands alone; spinal-decompression equipment gently relieves pressure from spinal disks to relieve pain.
At Vision Quest Spine & Sport Clinic, clients’ aches and pains are treated by a two-person team of Doctor of Chiropractic Dino Del Mastro—who is also a sports therapist—and massage therapist Hannah. They pool their skills to relieve neck and back pain caused by chronic activities, sports injuries, and traumatic events. Both chiropractor and massage therapist are lifelong athletes, so they’re well familiar with the lasting damage an injury can inflict on the body if it never properly heals. With this in mind, they spend their time working to ensure that their clients’ spines and musculature recover and stay strong and secure. Dr. Del Mastro uses spinal adjustment to correct and prevent imbalances within backs that can exacerbate problems throughout the body. Hannah focuses her massage therapy on releasing pain from deep within muscles to improve sports performance and allow her athletic clients the range of movement necessary to stretch into the shape of a football.
Licensed physician and surgeon Dr. K. Kam. Zand has seen a lot of patients in his more than 30-year career. After completing a fellowship in hematology at Harvard and receiving obstetrics and gynecology training at Washington University, he was named chief resident at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. There, in the hospital that Einstein built with his own hands, patient after patient walked into Dr. Zand?s treatment room hindered by weight gain and aging. Looking for new ways to help his clients, Dr. Zand began learning about cosmetic procedures, anti-aging tools, and medical weight-loss programs.
Today, Dr. Zand shares his expertise as medical director at Los Gatos Smart Lipo. His clinic tends to patients with an array of cosmetic services, including wrinkle-smoothing Botox, laser skin-tightening and liposuction, and surprisingly non-evil laser hair removal.
