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.
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.
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.
"Rejuv? was inspired because we wanted to offer patients the latest advances in skin rejuvenation and body enhancement," says medical director Dr. John Tang. Dr. Tang and his wife, Alexandra Tang, a registered nurse, opened Rejuv? in 2004 to provide these cosmetic services though nonsurgical and minimally invasive means, such as laser treatments, beauty injectables, and traditional spa appointments. They zap fat, clear complexions, and fade unwanted tattoos of Spiro Agnew, but before they do any of that, they make sure their patients stay healthy with nutrition consultations, hormone-replacement therapy, and exercise regimens.
The doctor at i-Lipo Laser San Jose understands that there's no such thing as a weight-loss program that's both lasting and instant. Yet Dr. Phan has come up with something that's close. Using healthy lifestyle transformation buttressed chiropractor Gia-Hung Phan and helps people shed excess pounds and inches in weeks. Prior to the procedure, he screens patients for metabolic imbalances and prescribes dietary recommendations, such as drinking plenty of water, to enhance the effects of the laser treatment. The clinic also houses a workout room where clients accelerate the removal of the fatty acids and glycerol using a vibration machine that aids the lymphatic system regulate and remove the cellular waste from the body during each treatment while carving their abs to resemble their favorite mountain range.
