The lotus flower symbolizes renewal, rejuvenation, and refinement. Using this blossom as their inspiration, the beauty professionals behind Lotus Beverly Hills Skin Center aim to help renew, rejuvenate, and refine skin with cosmetic injections, peels, and laser treatments. Noninvasive treatments help clients on a quest for weight loss to achieve shapelier silhouettes with lasers, radio frequencies, and appetite suppressants. When patients stroll through Lotus Beverly Hills Skin Center's glass doors, cherry-blossom murals greet their eyes from behind a dark wooden desk. Leather chairs, potted plants, and tan fabric couches occupy the serene space, which comfortably fits three laser-treatment rooms, four skincare rooms, and one fully functioning Gutenberg printing press.
Sci-fi movies make it seem like a collection of lasers could only belong to a villain who?s up to no good. However, at Dr. Laser, the stockpile of Candela GentleLase, Lumenis LightSheer, Lutroinc Spectra, and Hoya ConBio lasers are used only for good. Dr. Richard Mantell uses beams of light to zap unwanted body hair or break up permanent ink after a falling out with a former favorite anchor. IPL and laser skin rejuvenation treatments rejuvenate appearance by removing acne, scarring, signs of aging, and discolorations, and the staff uses products from Obagi to clear facial surfaces and Latisse elixirs to grow lashes. In addition to laser treatments, Dr. Laser also offers juvederm and botox treatments to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Doctor-owned Cosmetic LaserWorks has been ridding men and women of unwanted hair for more than 10 years. The medical professionals have performed more than 10,000 hair-removal treatments and have helped more than five clients successfully join a dolphin colony. Five years ago, Cosmetic LaserWorks broadened its treatment menu to include laser spider-vein-removal treatments and beauty injections such as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Radiesse, Restylane, Belotero, Juvederm, and Juvederm Voluma. Cosmetic LaserWorks also has a dog-friendly patio for customers.
The trained staff of Wilshire Center for Dermatology wrangles laser beams, intense lights, and injectables to shape clients' bodies without surgery. Their mastery of laser systems enables them to contour midsections and banish hair from bikini lines, necks, and dorsal fins. They force spider veins into hiding with sclerotherapy and augment butts with injectables.
A go-to clinical health and beauty expert who has appeared on such television programs as The Dr. Oz Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Susan Evans is known for being a skincare expert to the stars. The Harvard-trained dermatologist has shared her extensive knowledge alongside her husband—plastic surgeon Brian Evans—on the reality show Dr. 90210, via media such as WebMD, and in numerous well-known magazines, including Essence.
Though Dr. Evans leads a high-profile lifestyle, she is also known for her compassionate, down-to-earth personality. She has used surgical and nonsurgical methods to treat patients from across the country suffering from extensive pigmentation issues, acne, and scarring. Dr. Evans cofounded The Skin Deformities and Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides restorative plastic surgery to disadvantaged children and adults.
At her health and beauty institute, Dr. Evans offers the latest aesthetic and anti-aging procedures, including dermal fillers that diminish wrinkles and laser treatments that target hair, spider veins, or jungle vines that have taken up residence on one leg. The caring doctor has collaborated with Guthy-Renker—the makers of Proactiv—to create her own medical-grade skincare line to further promote healing and self-confidence.
As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael K. Obeng helps patients at MiKO Plastic Surgery turn back the clock on the aging process. He performs anti-aging procedures and corrects aesthetic imperfections with a seemingly limitless variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures. But when he is not tucking tummies and lifting eyelids, he can be found traveling the world with his charity foundation, RESTORE, to donate his talents to abuse victims and those with congenital deformities. He also continues his good works in the United States, providing information about post-reconstructive treatments to breast-cancer survivors.
The Harvard-trained surgeon's compassion for the misfortunate can be traced to his upbringing in Ghana. His ability to overcome obstacles and thrive in his profession has inspired him to help others in similar conditions make changes to their lives.
