Calling on more than 50 years of combined experience, the doctors at Body Sculpt By Laser make over clients from the inside out with holistic, noninvasive treatments. Their one-two coup de gr?ce against flab begins with the FDA-approved i-Lipo Laser, which shrinks fatty adipose cells by causing them to release triglycerides for natural disposal through the lymphatic system. This gentle process is aided by whole-body-vibration treatments that kick metabolisms into overdrive for expedient fat removal. The staff also creates custom lifestyle programs and nutritional plans, and supplies herbal supplements to bolster weight-loss efforts.
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.

Excess weight. Unexpected injuries. Difficult-to-diagnose illnesses. Many powerful enemies stand in the way of wellness, but to the medical professionals at Advanced Health Center, these obstacles are merely speed bumps on the road to optimal health. Their treatments mitigate and outmaneuver all manner of health issues, from Lipo_Light sessions that help clients shed inches to chiropractic adjustments that set spines back on the straight and narrow. Of course, all of the gains made through treatments must be maintained over the course of a lifetime; that's why the center also offers extensive nutrition and lifestyle counseling.
At Renew Body Sculpt, the key ingredients for achieving a slimmer silhouette include a balanced diet, exercise, and light. The technicians are in charge of delivering the latter element?they administer body-contouring treatments that reduce fat through light and heat, tightening areas such the arms, stomach, and legs. They have both the i-Lipo and Lipo-Light systems at their disposal. During appointments, pads placed on the body emit light, emulsifying fat cells and sending their contents to be processed by the lymphatic system. The treatments are noninvasive and don't require any bed rest, unlike surgery or wearing a corset on every limb. Whole-body vibration therapy is also available to enhance the metabolic process.
Make no mistake, however: the staff does not consider their services to be quick fixes. Their overarching focus is on healthy lifestyles, of which inch-loss is only one part. Dietary consultations, exercise programs, and screenings for metabolic imbalances help the center create a customized wellness approach for each client, in turn empowering them to obtain a sustainably svelte physique.
