Dr. David G. Glick—formerly an administrative supervisor at Cedars–Sinai Medical Center—and his team of medical aestheticians rejuvenate bodies with plastic surgery and med-spa treatments.

After graduating from Cornell University, Dr. Brian Evans established a practice in California in the hopes of evolving cosmetic surgery results from the "operated" look of the past to more dramatic yet natural transformations. He bolsters youthful looks with cosmetic surgeries such as implants, tummy tucks, and rhinoplasty, and he has appeared as a cast physician on the E! Network's Dr. 90210. He and his team can beautify clients with nonsurgical procedures such as laser hair removal and laser skin rejuvenation, and they also treat patients with dermatological ailments such as acne, abnormal pigmentation, or having the same fingerprints as Al Capone.
Under the guidance of board-certified physician Dr. Kamran Hakimian, Laser Touch Medical Clinic's team of skin professionals apply Veinwave technology to polish body parts marred by visible vessels. After a brief consultation, specialists penetrate the chosen zone with several minute, insulated needles, which apply focused heat to stubborn veins to make them close up, fade away, and leave skin clearer for future games of epidermal tic-tac-toe. Vessel-vanquishing results are usually noticeable immediately and the treatment requires no downtime, lending newly polished skin a speedy return to everyday activities.
An expert reviewer for the Medical Board of California, SoCal native Dr. Rady Rahban has distinguished himself as a rising star in the field of human clock rewinding, enjoying the limelight on the Style Network and TLC's How I Lost 100 Pounds. Besides plastic surgery, this philanthropic face-fixer specializes in nonsurgical procedures, filling facial fault lines to prevent countenance drift in his tasteful, homey office. Botox treatments may smooth seniority-striped skin from the headier altitudes. Twenty units of Botox are roughly enough to diminish crow's-feet, brow-bridging frown lines, or forehead furrows. Facial fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm use hyaluronic acid, a biological substance found in all species, which can be effective against the creases that crop up between nose and mouth. Like a popsicle's Caribbean honeymoon, all three treatments are temporary and require fresh infusions roughly every three to six months, with minimal recovery time.
