Under the supervision of Dr. Jon Dresser, a staff of nurse practitioners and registered nurses bolsters client confidence and boosts well-being with noninvasive aesthetic services. Qualified medical staff employ the Palomar StarLux 500 laser—which is outfitted with broadband light energy, a vacuum, and a cooling system—to optimize laser hair-removal treatments and acne or anti-aging facials. Qualified medical staff administer all laser therapies and inject dermal fillers such as Botox, reassuring patients with expert medical advice about their results, aftercare, and probability of attaining immortality. The space's capacious waiting room is painted an energizing shade of lime green, and scattered sofas and oriental rugs exude a welcoming, homey feel.
Image Health aims to simulate the experience of working out—and reap the benefits—with none of the hassle. Noninvasive Electro-Slim technology stimulates the muscles of the body with specific frequencies, causing the rapid tightening and releasing of muscles. The treatment can result in stronger musculature, increase metabolic activity, and improve blood flow, thus contouring the body and treating cellulite. Image Health also promotes patients' well-being via services such as Kangen ionized water devices and Redox Signaling supplements.
Massage might be the only form of treatment offered at New Happy Day Spa, but that's not to say that the studio's clients don't have options. Traditionalists can stick to Swedish massage, made more fluid by the use of oils. Deep-tissue massage often gets a helping hand from warmed basalt stones, which loosen areas of tension and calm the nervous system. The spa's resident massage therapists have another mode of targeting aches: the Chinese art of reflexology, which uses a pressure-point map of the feet in an attempt to stimulate healing throughout the body and banish phantom socks.
Lisa at Mind Body Soul Healing Center combines holistic, spiritual, and conventional methods to cultivate health in her clients. A reiki master who is versed in a number of techniques, including traditional Thai massage, reflexology, and prenatal massage, she augments massages with therapeutic grade essential oils and soothing hot towels. Clients looking to unkink their spiritual energies can opt for guided meditation and chakra-balancing sessions. The center also seeks to enrich its holistic community through workshops, equipping students with the skills to mix therapeutic aromas, personally align their chakras, and repel rabid raccoons.
Affordable Lipo Sacramento is helmed by naturopathic physician and chiropractor Barry Wachs, who has been practicing holistic and alternative treatments for 45 years and whose detoxing services have been profiled in Style magazine. Within The Sunrise Holistic Collective’s hygienic facilities, Wachs wields the noninvasive lipo-laser machine to target areas of fat. The device's low-level, non-thermal laser light is designed to break down the fat cells’ walls, causing them to release their fatty fluids and liquefied joie de vivre for later ousting by the lymphatic system.
The laser technicians at Creekside Medical Spa carefully aim beams to remove hair, veins, and tattoos from the skin. When it comes to facial blemishes, the laser services separate into two specialized treatments: SmartSkin laser rejuvenation and IPL laser facials. The first combats hyperpigmentation, brown spots, and wrinkles, and the latter fades the effects of sun damage more effectively than moving to a dank cave for six months.
It's not all flashing lights at the spa, however. The licensed skincare professionals within also rely on skincare products from Obagi and SkinMedica to refresh certain complexions. Their customized facials address a wide range of symptoms, from dryness to acne, and the formulas used to nourish pores can also be purchased to aid at-home regimens. The spa menu is rounded out by a list of injectables, including Botox and Restylane. These products smooth out wrinkles from between the brows, around the nose, and near the mouth, leaving faces looking firm and youthful.
