LA Laser and Skin Center's board-certified dermatologist Dr. Daniel Taheri decorates his office with a Valentine Honor, the most prestigious award bestowed upon a UCLA Medical School graduate. A tenacious academic after graduation, he has published more than 25 articles in scientific journals and authored a tome, Practical Management of Skin Cancer, which medical schools use in their curricula, and high school cafeterias boil down into lunches. The Center reaps the benefits of Dr. Taheri's continued diligence, with special departments for skin-cancer management and medical dermatology. Beauty is also cultivated at the cutting edge. Surgery restores battered hands or shapes alluring contours into monuments to the hourglass, and FDA-cleared lasers rejuvenate complexions. The Center is also among the first to try new cosmetic procedures, such as Ultherapy, an FDA-approved noninvasive facelift that has been featured in press outlets such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, In Style, and CBS's The Early Show. Dr. Taheri demonstrates his expertise at eight LA Laser and Skin Centers in California and Nevada, and shares professional insights on television networks including CNN and NBC, clips of which you can see on the Center's YouTube channel.
Beverly Hills Rejuvenation Medical Associates mission is to seek out hidden, natural beauty located just beneath the skin. To achieve this goal, they offer a comprehensive selection of medical aesthetic treatments that include bio-identical hormonal treatments and injectable fillers that are meant to help clients defy age.

The center, which now has locations in Texas and Arizona, specializes in fighting aging with hormone-replacement therapy. Its wellness experts use natural hormones to alleviate everything from fatigue to irritability, making clients feel young enough to attend a boy-band concert without earplugs. The experts may also recommend a particular diet to accompany the client's custom treatment plan. To battle external signs of aging, health-care professionals inject dermal fillers into faces, resurface skin with peels, combat hyperpigmentation and spider veins with intense pulsed light, and perform nonsurgical face-lifts. They also treat hair loss with NeoGraft hair restoration.
The therapists at Blue Diamond Spa render skincare services, massage therapy, and energy healing. From facials and micropeels to seaweed treatments and body waxing, experienced skincare specialists remove dead skin cells from surfaces and dirt from pores with products from Dermalogica and Jane Iredale. Massage therapists knead out tension and help prevent injury by applying various degrees of pressure, like parents trying to get a perfect child to eat dessert for once. Alternate therapies treat more stubborn imperfections with plastic surgery and Zerona laser treatments that help patients lose weight. Their energy healing, meanwhile, can relieve chronic pain and fatigue. Blue Diamond Spa offers beauty injectables such as Botox and fillers, as well as Carboxy. In addition, there are two Ayurvedic-medicine practitioners on the staff.
The Los Feliz MedSpa is a dual operation of sorts, offering up a variety of cosmetic and relaxation services. “Spa” is the operative word for this neighborhood mainstay, which delivers all you’d expect from a high-end Los Angeles spa. Its menu includes an innovative mix of facials, chemical peels and medical microdermabrasion. But the MedSpa is perhaps best known for its in-house cosmetic procedures, particularly its injectables. Botox and other fillers are delivered with a light hand here, leaving patrons with a not-so-overdone look. The same can be said for its popular laser procedures, which include wrinkle-eliminating Thermage and other skin-tightening services. Laser hair removal is another go-to treatment, and all services are offered by qualified professionals inside the sunny, colorful Hillhurst Avenue space.
All aesthetic procedures at A E Skin are performed by Dr. Alex Eshaghian, MD, PhD, who worked for more than 10 years in molecular biology labs and wrote his graduate dissertation on genetic factors that contribute to visible aging. At his practice, Dr. Alex promotes youthful appearances with treatments such as Botox and Juvederm as well as useful props like jumbo-size pacifiers. Laser therapies disarm hair follicles and zap away hyperpigmentation, and chemical peels dissipate the topmost layer of skin, where skin damage makes itself apparent. Laser treatments shrink and dissolve unseemly spider veins in the legs, keeping them from clashing with your wardrobe.
Dr. Raphael Darvish sensed he might become a doctor at a very young age. Not because a game of MASH told him he would become one, but because he is the fourth generation in a family of physicians. With Skinpeccable, he has turned his family's history into his own practice. Growing up in Southern California, he quickly recognized the need to create a dermatology and laser center to serve the cosmetic needs of the surrounding area. He and his team of laser nurses and aestheticians practice with advanced and safe laser technology, soothing sun damage, removing veins and unwanted hair, and performing laser facials.
