After graduating from medical school in Seoul, South Korea, the young Dr. Kim became a captain in the South Korean armed forces and flew the skies as a flight surgeon for Korean and American troops. He relocated to the United States, where he performed more than 8,000 surgeries and began specializing in cosmetic procedures. Today, as the founder and medical director of Renaissance Cosmetic Laser, Dr. Kim uses his years of experience to help both men and women enhance their appearance with services ranging from water-assisted liposuction to wrinkle-smoothing injections.

Premier Dermatology's board-certified dermatologists and skilled aestheticians draw on years of experience in the beauty industry to improve clients' skin tones and textures with exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments. During each one-hour session, products from brands such as SkinCeuticals and NeoStrata voyage onto facial terrain, working to even out complexions and keep them distinct from camouflage ski masks. Exfoliation ousts dead cells loitering on the top layer of skin, helping to reveal a clearer, more evenly toned epidermis. No downtime is needed after the treatment, allowing freshly buffed façades to immediately return to proving whether it requires more muscles to frown, smile, or make a fish face.
