The technicians at Sacramento Laser Fat Loss Centers target stubborn fat cells around the body using Lapex 2000 BCS LipoLaser technology. This cold laser stimulates the body's reaction to exercising in order to relieve fat cells of their water, glycerol, and free fatty acids. Many patients lose up to 2 inches after two treatments, though results can be amplified with the addition of exercise, dieting, and whalebone corsets. A complete treatment sequence is composed of nine treatments over the course of three weeks.
Belle Vie Skin Care's staff’s singular aim is to help their clients live the "belle vie," or beautiful life. They do so by focusing on the body's biggest organ, the skin, using DermaQuest Skin Therapy products. Naturally, they present a wide range of facials: there are 14 in all—enough to make each head of a 14-headed monster marginally less terrifying. These range from a quick 30-minute basic facial to more powerful treatments such as microdermabrasion, LED therapy, and chemical peels. As epidermis experts, they also specialize in waxing. Inside a private treatment room, a trained professional delicately removes the hair from bikini areas, the face, the back, and legs.

Upon entering the 25,000-square-foot Club Fit USA facility, guests are greeted by a sea of cardio equipment whirring beneath the glow of TV screens. Past the ellipticals, treadmills, and StairMasters lie Hammer and Icarian strength-training machines alongside Olympic bars and more than 6,000 additional weight plates to help guests carve out chiseled physiques. Within the combat ring, instructors lead boxing, MMA, and professional-style wrestling classes throughout the week, as well as cardio-intensive Civil War reenactments. The instructors also lead groups in myriad exercise classes, and for more personalized fat-burning routines, they work with clients in one-on-one personal-training sessions to draft custom fitness plans. Beyond the gym’s walls, the trainers strive to keep clients healthy with online nutrition tips and articles.
Dr. Victor Manuel Nava's extensive training and surgical career have taken him across the country and back again. After an internship in Baja, California, he completed his general-surgery residency in Wilmington, North Carolina. After 14 years in the Tar Heel State, he came back to California in 2002 and opened his own private practice, where he puts his extensive training and artistic touch to good use performing a full slate of cosmetic procedures, including facelifts, breast augmentations, and liposuction. Not all of his services are surgical, though; he also offers laser hair removal and acne treatments, as well as dermal fillers that diminish wrinkles and render skin smoother than a newborn bowling ball.
