Led by Dr. Mehrdad Amirhamzeh, a board-certified cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon, Sierra Vein & Vascular Institute's medical staff aims to clear up skin's appearance and vanquish vein disease. Non-invasive treatments such as sclerotherapy and VNus Closure—an outpatient procedure using radio frequencies—can target cosmetic concerns while abating serious concerns such as leg ulcers or kisses from cobweb-seeking vacuums. The staff consults with patients to craft plans focused on minimal downtime and quick recovery. Dr. Amirhamzeh maintains affiliations with many state, national, and intergalactic medical societies, including the Society for Vascular Surgery and the American Medical Association.
Over her more than 20-year career, Christina Morain has blossomed from makeup artist to account coordinator for major cosmetics lines to opening Christina Morain Permanent Makeup, which transcends its namesake service through a range of skincare and waxing expertise. With her nonjudgmental demeanor and understanding of beauty's importance, Christina puts clients at ease as she defines sparse brows, highlights fading lip lines, and even corrects past permanent makeup applications. Meanwhile, 10 types of facial services take specialized approaches toward banishing blemishes, erasing fine lines, and keeping facial freckles from rearranging to spell "Wash me." To retain refreshed complexions, Christina stocks her spa's shelves with a range of beauty products from brands including Image Skincare, Dermalogica, and Cry Baby semi-permanent mascara.
Using cutting edge science, the staff at Applied Medical Technologies takes an all-over approach to physical health. Medically-directed weight management covers not only an understanding of the relationship between participant and food but maintaining a desired weight as well. A whole-body vibration platform can help patients to lose weight. Other programs include cold-laser i-Lipo treatments to help with body contouring.
Dr. Edward Rubinstein and the staff of West Coast Foot Laser understand the embarrassment and discomfort caused by nails infected with onychomycosis. Besides limiting the desire to wear open-toe galoshes, the nail fungus can cause painful health issues if left untreated. The center combats these infections with powerful beams, which typically require a single session to eliminate the problem at the source and allow healthy nails to gradually appear.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rex Moulton-Barrett and his staff of hair whisperers use Sciton laser beams to smooth bewhiskered skins. In three sessions of small-area laser hair removal (a $107/treatment value), the laser's pulsating light heats the inside of hair follicles until their own melanin destroys them, much as lion tamers are destroyed by their own love of practical jokes. Small areas eligible for liberation from follicle tyranny include the chin, eyebrows and forehead, underarms, sideburns, back of the neck, upper lip, and standard bikini line.
