Copa Vida Med Spa helps to revamp figures with minimally invasive and noninvasive cosmetic treatments vetted for their efficacy and scientific soundness. Board-certified maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Tony Chu chairs the facility with expertise in facial reconstructive and cosmetic surgery, which he developed through stints as an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Texas and through training with Mayo Clinic's former chairman of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Chu's seasoned staff of aestheticians, surgical nurses, and surgical assistants lends a helping hand during the med spa's various treatments, which include everything from Botox and liposuction to facials and event makeup for weddings or visits to the DMV. With an emphasis on the individual, Copa Vida Med Spa tailors custom skincare regimens to each client using professional products from Colorescience, SkinCeuticals, and Jan Marini.
The staff at The Slim Co of Rohnert Park use a non-invasive Body Light system for clients' body-contouring needs. Using gentle LED lasers, the session helps dispel stubborn inches from common target areas, such as the midsection and thighs, while clients relax to music or nature sounds.
At ALC of Vallejo, Alfred L. Caruso, MD and his experienced staff exclusively use Palomar lasers for their noninvasive aesthetic treatments. Their StarLux 500 model scatters light over faces during IPL photofacials that work to eliminate sun damage, and triggers the body’s healing processes to address wrinkles and acne during fractional laser sessions. For patients looking to part ways with unwanted follicles, the staff employs a Vectus laser, cooling gel, and a tasteful Dear Hair letter. A seasoned veteran in medical aesthetics, Dr. Caruso has operated his own practice for the past 14 years.
Art and science intertwine at Plastic Surgery Specialists, where clients' features are enhanced by a roster of cosmetic procedures overseen by a talented two-surgeon team. Meeting the skin through a simple series of injections, Botox smoothes notoriously lineated spots such as crow's-feet, frown lines, or forehead tire tracks. By weakening the muscles that firmly grasp wrinkles, the procedure can visibly plump the area and restore suppleness to the skin, leaving behind a ripple-less rind that lasts up to six months.
Dr. Barbara Persons, a board-certified plastic surgeon, pares her experience as a surgeon with an artistic vision in all of her procedures. Her areas of specialty include both aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, body contouring, facial rejuvenation, and helping new mothers to get back to 'pre-baby' weight.
