Aesthetician Kimberly Cizek expertly slathers Cirepil hard wax onto skin for a quick eviction of hair on faces, torsos, and limbs.

Under the guidance of board-certified dermatologists Dr. A. David Rahimi and Dr. Michael Lin, who has appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the licensed aestheticians at Westlake Laser & Aesthetics Medical Group slough off dead skin cells during 30-minute glycolic- or salicylic-acid peels. Aestheticians apply professional Linage serums specially developed by Dr. Lin to reduce fine lines, fight acne, and make visages smoother than a dolphin at a singles bar. Typically, the treatments can improve the appearance of faces, necks, and chests by lightening pigmentation and revealing a healthy, rosy glow. After the resurfacing session, patients can return instantly to work or competitive pole vaulting, as there is no downtime required.
As medical director of Dermatique Medical Center, Dr. Marc Kerner has developed a vast knowledge of facial plastic surgery, dermal fillers, and other skincare topics, a fact which has made him a go-to expert on CBS 2 and KCAL 9 news.

To keep refreshed complexions beaming bright, Dermatique's staff recommends Cosmedix products, with options for all skin types.

Under the expert guidance of Dr. Daniel Taheri, the staff at LA Laser and Skin Center harnesses laser-fat-removal technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can slink away. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time. Technicians perform the six treatments within 72 hours of one another over the span of two weeks, the exact length of time it takes a laser to cross a football field. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, regular hydration, and avoidance of caffeine and alcohol.
