The specialists, nurses, and program managers at Doctor's Weight Clinic prove to clients that losing weight is never too lofty of a goal through the clinic's individually tailored weight-loss programs based on each person's physical health and target weight. After meeting privately with a weight-loss specialist to devise a plan of action, clients embark on the journey to a slimmer silhouette with the help of nutritional supplements, appetite suppressants, and fat-burning injections, which include lipotropic compounds and B vitamins that help stimulate the metabolism. In order to maximize the effectiveness of their plan, clients should follow a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly.
Dr. Melinda Silva specializes in balance. She earned a Compassionate Physician Award from her patients for balancing emotional connection and clinical savvy, but she can also balance more concrete entities: hormones. Her bioidentical-hormone therapies alleviate the imbalances that can cause issues from mood swings to obesity. To complement them, Dr. Silva prescribes lifestyle changes such as diet alterations, new fitness regimens, and healthier sleep routines. Her clinic handles aesthetic concerns just as adeptly as medical ones, with noninvasive physique-contouring Exilis treatments, wrinkle-smoothing Botox injections, and chemical peels.
Even before opening his own private practice, Dr. Jason Lupton was intensely familiar with the rigors of the medical profession. After attending Georgetown University's prestigious medical school, Lupton completed a one-year laser-surgery fellowship at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, making him one of the few fellowship-trained cosmetic dermatologists in southern California. His sterling reputation has led him to give lectures at the annual meetings of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and inside the minds of various schizophrenic celebrities. These days, his expertise is sought by publications such as Cosmopolitan, which he provides between medical and cosmetic dermatology services. In treatments such as laser hair removal, Botox, or sclerotherapy, Lupton wields high-end skincare products from brands such as Glo Minerals and SkinMedica.
The newly renovated Spa Kingston, formerly known as Lush spa, offers a fresh approach to the spa experience in San Diego. Owner and lead aesthetician Renee started her career like many others in the spa business: after graduating from the Douglas J Aveda Institute, she earned her license and got a skincare job in a high-traffic spa. But eventually, she longed for a new challenge. Wanting to learn the medical side of the beauty world, Maloney went to work for a plastic surgeon and became certified in a list of aesthetic medical treatments as long as the instructions for building a spaceship. With her new knowledge of IPL photofacials, peels, and laser hair removal, Maloney opened up her own business and never looked back. Each day, Maloney and her team of trained aestheticians combine the power of medical-grade treatments with the luxurious and relaxing elements of a top spa—including facials and waxing—to give clients warm and professional experiences that meets all their needs.
An undeniable expert in the filed of phlebology, Dr. O’Byrne has spent nearly two decades honing her ability to treat large and painful varicose veins, even sharing her knowledge with the world during an episode of The Doctors. Luckily, local clients can see the doctor in person at her own practice, The Vein Clinic. Depending on the condition of a patient’s veins, Dr. O’Byrne can prescribe any number of treatments following the initial consultation. In some situations, she can even perform the first steps the same day.
Though veins are the focus of The Vein Clinic, licensed aesthetician Amanda Nichol is also available to administer a variety of skin-rejuvenating treatments. Microdermabrasion, pumpkin peels, and vitamin-packed facials are just the tip of the iceberg of Amanda's abilities. The specialist can also help reverse and slow the signs of aging with Fractora Firm and Fractora Plus. Each treatment lifts and tightens sagging skin without a single scalpel, suture, or piece of duct tape.
The experienced aestheticians at Ageless and Beautiful foster smoother dermises and slimmer waistlines with Lipomassage, also known as endermologie. During the noninvasive, FDA-approved treatment, trained hands guide dual-action rollers across problem areas to break apart fat cells. The rollers, much like a moody blowfish, employ a combination of agitation and suction designed to shrink cellulite and firm loose skin. Though not classified as a weight-loss procedure or a mammal, Lipomassage can reduce inches in addition to reducing the appearance of cellulite.
