What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
They focus only on specific lines or wrinkles versus taking in their faces as a whole and working towards achieving a refreshed, youthful and natural look. I recommend we look at all of the signs of aging, such as fine lines, large pores, volume loss in the cheeks and sun damage and [then making] a plan to address each issue.
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.
Though most people pose the question ?if there was one thing you could change about yourself, what would it be?? as a conversation starter, Dr. John F. Hsu asks it so he can fulfill that wish. As a plastic surgeon, he helps build confidence by lifting, reducing, and reconstructing natural features. Aside from surgery, he works to enhance his clients' appearance with other procedures including spider-vein removal and weight-loss programs. Dr. Hsu backs all his treatments with a wealth of knowledge and experience, including a variety of degrees from top universities including UCLA and NYU and time spent training at hospitals such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and researching at institutions such as Harvard and the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
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. They perform everything from facelifts and breast augmentation to nonsurgical VelaSmooth body contouring and cosmetic injectables, such as Restylane and Botox, which bring Father Time’s wrinkly rampage to a screeching halt with a specially formulated serum and microscopic stop signs that stifle wrinkles at the source.
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.
