Dr. Goldring at MDS Medical Spa & Laser Center aims to restore youthful vigor to veneers with medical injections, including Botox, Juv?derm, and Restylane treatments, as well as medical peels and IPL photofacials. The photofacials stimulate visages with laser light energy and aim to banish such pigmented blemishes as acne scars, sun damage, and rosacea. Treatments can take 30?45 minutes, with each laser pulse creating the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin while a sci-fi foley artist provides sound effects. During each Botox session, targeted areas receive an injection of purified protein, which relaxes muscles and smoothes skin that has become furrowed from age or frequent super-soaker duels. Alternatively, Restylane injections achieve similar results with a hyaluronic-acid elixir, and Juv?derm injections fill wrinkled areas around the mouth and nose. Prior to treatment, patients meander past lush outdoor greenery as they pass through the spa's thick wooden doors and into the waiting room, where a sleek reception desk and supple leather chairs keep waiting patrons comfortable. On the walls, bottled body serums add splashes of color to brushed-metal shelves as gleaming frames display feature articles about the spa and lovelorn dating columns written by recently abandoned wrinkles.
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.

When its icy beauty isn't adding a tony touch to episodes of CSI, Blue Medi Spa spruces up the pages of publications from Allure to the Wall Street Journal. Blue's medical director, Dr. Daniel Yamini, has appeared on Entertainment Tonight and Dr. 90210.
Dr. Yamini's expertise stems from double board certification in plastic and general surgery, and he has performed more than 5,000 procedures during his career. He oversees Blue's nonsurgical services, which range from laser and body-contouring treatments to injectables and clinical facials that work better than taping prescription pads over the face.
As Dr. Yamini and his aestheticians tend to bodies, the spa's aquamarine light filters through translucent panels and reflects off of tiling. Stretched fabric and hanging shapes evoke the mobiles of Alexander Calder as space dividers create the feel of an art gallery on Pluto.
Lasers are often associated with evil villains and galactic battles, but the lasers at The Laser Image only have the clients’ best interests at heart. They use the power of their beams to remove unwanted stubble, dissolve spider veins, and boost collagen and elastin production to make faces look younger and give clients more confidence. Dr. Brian Fenmore, in practice for more than two decades, supervises every laser treatment, along with a bevy of other med spa services offered at his center. Oxygen therapy, for example, beautifies skin with topically-applied oxygen infused with antioxidants, while facials and peels, combat skin conditions from aging to acne. Additionally, the center employs an on-staff nutritionist to help patients create healthy diet plans to foster beauty and wellness inside and out.
