Dr. Haroun Rostami learned about structure as an engineering student, and now the prosthodontist uses the principles of good structure to rebuild patients’ smiles. He installs crowns to cover weakened or fractured teeth, and he replaces missing teeth altogether with dental implants or tic tacs. These prosthodontics not only look like natural teeth, but also function and feel like them. In addition, Dr. Rostami ushers teeth into single file with Invisalign clear braces and brings out their natural whiteness with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments.
Contour Dermatology bolsters patients struggling with friction-inducing strands and stubble with safe, comfortable laser hair-removal techniques. Over the course of three sessions, medically trained staffers teleport black or brunette fuzz from the face or body to a far-off galaxy by aiming a low-energy GentleLase beam at follicular bases. Charged particles carry enough energy to blast away the melanin inside errant bristles but leave the surrounding skin healthy and unharmed. Like planning a date for your parents, the procedure can be slightly uncomfortable, so technicians employ a cool laser tip, gel, or spray to soothe the skin and help spare nerves undue unpleasantness. Most complexions are acceptable candidates for laser hair removal, but clients with a very dark complexion may be subject to a spot test to ensure effective treatment. Clients need three to six sessions on average to impede ill-placed tufts during the active phase of each follicle's growth cycle.
