For nearly 25 years, board-certified physician and ob-gyn Dr. Monte Slater, has helped clients achieve the body they crave. Since completing his residency at the Naval Hospital San Diego, Dr. Slater has helmed the medical field as a leader with positions as a Department Chairman, Director of Surgical Services, Medical Director and Deputy Chief of Staff. He specializes in removing fat from the body, either removing it permanently with Pure Lipo's small syringes or removing it from one area of the body and then carefully injecting it into another area, such as the hand, face, or rear, to create a more youthful appearance. Dr. Slater is also certified to perform Dermapen procedures—a technique that allows regions of the face and skin to be specifically targeted for the stimulation of collagen production. For less invasive fat-busting treatments, the vacuum technology of Aesthetic Body Sculpture Clinic's Synergie Aesthetic Massage System breaks up cellulite with vacuum suction so it can drain from the body, leaving it smoother than Michelangelo's David after his weekly wax.
Since 1998, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael P. Butler has run his practice with a strong focus on getting to know his patients' situations and problems before beginning treatment. Rather than rushing into one of the center's various services, each appointment starts off with an assessment designed to help prescribe customized courses of action and determine if patients have a vestigial tail. Dr. Butler and his team of spinal superheroes then use spinal adjustments, applied kinesiology, cold-laser therapy, and other treatments to remedy ailments ranging from chronic back pain to headaches, stress, and general fatigue.

Awaken's stylists and aestheticians team up to revitalize exteriors with professional skincare and haircare services in a relaxing, gratuity-free salon. An adroit crew will attend to each guest, snipping and shaping clients' topmost threads ($20+ for men, $45+ for women), and applying topiary-trimming precision honed from years of ambidextrous scissor handedness. Color services transform hair chromatics with one-process ($45), full highlight ($95), partial highlight ($60), creative color ($18), and clear gloss ($28), and the damage-remedy hair spa ($40) can revitalize crowns' complexions. Hair straightening ($85/hour), updos ($45+), and bridal updos ($60+) match heads with makeup applications for events ($50+) and nuptials ($60+), prepping patrons for special occasions and wedding-day crime reenactments. Customized facials rejuvenate delicate skin ($45+), and massages butter backs and nuzzle noses with personally picked aromas ($50+ for 30 minutes).
The stylists at Hints Of Color Salon love nothing more than spoiling their clients, and that’s why they use top-shelf Rusk color solutions, ISO perms, and Design Essentials straighteners. Kept abreast of current trends by ongoing classes and by hiring a private detective to investigate girls’ nights out, they breathe new life into hair with cuts, all-over color, highlights, and other salon services.
Let the experienced aestheticians at Serenity Salon & Spa defuzz dermis with a round of laser hair-removal sessions. Customers can feel the fur-felling power of light beams on their choice of three areas, including underarms ($200), abdomens ($200), and standard bikini lines ($250). Each nearly painless laser blast lasts 15 to 30 minutes, depending on skin and hair type. Space all three treatments out to maximize effectiveness and test follicles' long-term memories. Since obstinate stubble can require six to eight sessions to achieve long-lasting results, smoothness-seekers have the option to purchase two of today's Groupons. Results may vary with different skin and hair types, but a pre-treatment consultation will determine the best course of action from patient to patient.

Acai aftercare products harness the power of this mysterious super-fruit to create results that can last for up to 12 weeks. The entire process can be completed in less than 90 minutes, leaving clients free to spend the day testing the limits of their reinforced tresses in local wind tunnels.
