Almaden Valley Aesthetics? medical director, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Agheg M. Yenikomshian, leads a team of medical aestheticians and registered nurses that never perform exactly the same a procedure twice. The professional staff specializes in procedures including skin tightening, fraxels, photofacials, and cellulite reduction. Those looking to minimize the appearance of wrinkles may also enlist their expertise in administering facial fillers, collagen builders, and Dysport or Botox injections. In addition to its catalogue of medical services, the team also tailors non-invasive beautifying services to each client?s specific needs, whether they are minimizing stubble through laser hair removal or rejuvenating faces with various peels. Microdermabrasion treatments buff away dead skin while spa-style facials can hydrate skin, infuse pores with Vitamin C, or address common teen skin imperfections such as acne and drivers-ed notes jotted on the forehead.
Board-certified physician and surgeon Dr. Rani V. Ramachandran loves fashion. Even after she earned a medical degree from the University of Madras, nabbed a master's degree from Loma Linda University, and completed a residency at the University of California and a fellowship at Stanford University, she still loved fashion, which surprisingly is not a synonym for learning. So she combined two passions and opened Apsara Aesthetic Medicine, where she and her staff can help to beautify complexions during aesthetic services such as laser hair-removal treatments, Botox injections, and microdermabrasions. Dr. Ramachandran also infuses her practice with positive energy, and her stylish flair accents the waiting room in the form of colorful paintings, decorative mirrors, and a clock with hands that sport exquisite diamond rings.
"Rejuv? was inspired because we wanted to offer patients the latest advances in skin rejuvenation and body enhancement," says medical director Dr. John Tang. Dr. Tang and his wife, Alexandra Tang, a registered nurse, opened Rejuv? in 2004 to provide these cosmetic services though nonsurgical and minimally invasive means, such as laser treatments, beauty injectables, and traditional spa appointments. They zap fat, clear complexions, and fade unwanted tattoos of Spiro Agnew, but before they do any of that, they make sure their patients stay healthy with nutrition consultations, hormone-replacement therapy, and exercise regimens.
It seems Dr. Shahin Fazilat has had a hard time scratching his itch for education. The board-certified plastic surgeon first bolstered his medical degree from Howard University School of Medicine by completing general surgery training at The Washington Hospital Center. Then came his fellowship at the National Institutes of Health, followed by a yearlong cosmetic surgery apprenticeship, and finally another fellowship in hand and microsurgery at Stanford University. All this schooling and training serves him well at his practice, where he performs all of the surgical and nonsurgical procedures himself instead of entrusting them to a guy in a New Jersey Devils jersey who insists he can totally do surgery. To list a few of his duties, he doles out Botox injections and Vi Peel chemical peels, conducts liposuction treatments, and performs breast lift, augmentation, and reduction procedures that make as few incisions as possible. Additional services include mommy makeovers and post-weight loss procedures.
Over the past 10 years, Dr. Reza Tabriz, the cosmetic surgeon at Jeunederm Cosmetic Surgery Center, has slimmed more than 2,000 silhouettes with cosmetic procedures.
