New Look Institute's specialists help men and women reclaim their confidence by repairing hairscapes non-surgically. Using natural-looking, well-adhered grafts by designers such as Virtuesse, Reallusions, and SensiGraft, they ready sparse scalps for special events, dips in the pool, and trips to the NASA wind tunnel. They also offer low-level laser therapy (LLLT) as a treatment regimen to bulk up thinning strands, as well as shampoos, tonics, and supplements by dhtSensor to help slow hair loss and stimulate new growth.
At Premier Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon James Newman, MD, FACS and his fellow board-certified plastic surgeons enhance beauty within their state-of-the-art surgical suite. Dr. Newman completed his residency and a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Stanford University, where he now serves on the clinical faculty. He completed an additional fellowship with an emphasis on laser surgery after recognizing the large role lasers now play in surgical procedures. The renowned surgeon also lectures internationally and has authored more than 30 surgery-related scientific publications and a coloring book.
Dr. Newman and his staff perform a variety of medical procedures, ranging from face-lifts and Vaser ultrasonic liposuction to minimally invasive body-contouring and enhancement techniques. They can also combat signs of aging via nonsurgical means, including dermal fillers that smooth wrinkles and Vaser Shape sessions that, like a rearview mirror in place of a bathroom mirror, make bodies look smaller.
Unless you save up enough money to hire a body double, there can be only one of you. That's why Salon 1416's primary goal is to tailor treatments to the needs of the individual, whether it be a signature facial or a new haircut and color customized to flatter one's features. They put a new twist on the standard salon services, too. For example, nail technicians soften hands with hot towels instead of with long soaks in water, which results in more malleable nails and a more luxurious treatment. Waxing and airbrush tanning round out their stable of beautifying services.
Though she served as director of anesthesiology at the San Leandro Surgery Center, Dr. Gayle Misle helps the clients at Reviv Med Spa to look anything but sleepy. With a mission to help rejuvenate and improve bodies, Misle and her staff fight signs of weariness and aging with the latest aesthetic technologies, including injectables, chemical peels, and dermaplaning. Exilis, Sciton, and other aesthetic units utilize infrared and thermal energy to reshape stores of cellulite and tighten skin by jumpstarting its natural collagen-production process. Expert technicians also master several types of laser treatments that rid the body of unwanted hair and once-wanted tattoos.
Technicians use low-level lasers to help hair grow and to tone complexions. One-hour hair-restoration treatments are typically pain-free and devoid of the odor and sound that accompany similar treatments, such as super-gluing a live yeti onto one's scalp. Laser beams stimulate follicles effectively regardless of the patient's age, gender, or ethnicity, and patients are usually so comfortable that they read during the treatment. Also typically painless is the treatment known as Awaken Skin Therapy, which encourages cells to regenerate while it stimulates circulation. The result is skin that's free from fine lines and more elastic.
Most cosmetic surgeons know a lot about the face. But as a dentist and plastic surgeon, Dr. Alex Rabinovich knows how the mouth plays a big role in determining ideal facial aesthetics. Rather than only focusing on lifting the skin, reshaping the nose, or combining two eyes into one, Dr. Rabinovich considers the role teeth and jaws play in the overall harmony of the face. No matter what facial-sculpting procedure he performs, Dr. Rabinovich mostly uses local anesthesia or twilight anesthesia to help prevent complications.
Before any treatment, patients can take advantage of thorough consultations at the homey treatment center with brick walls, hardwood floors, and a large flat-panel television. Dr. Rabinovich occasionally leaves the comfort of these confines to participate in medical missions abroad that provide children in need with free reconstructive surgery.
