Dr. Saul Lahijani draws upon extensive experience and education as he works to help clients achieve their aesthetic dreams. He began his education at USC, where he earned his undergraduate degree before obtaining a doctorate of medicine at Ross University School of Medicine, finishing at the top of his class. He next performed several residencies at Yale and Vanderbilt, before staying an international fellowship in Barcelona. Today, he welcomes patients into his clinic for non-invasive and surgical treatments, wielding lasers and scalpels to sculpt bodies with the precision of a bionic Michelangelo.
It’s a family affair at Contoured Images Plastic Surgery, where Dr. Debra Stafford and her sister Dr. Vivi Stafford beautify clients with advanced cosmetic treatments. Before beginning any service, the doctors spend ample time listening to each patient’s aesthetic goals and concerns and explaining medical jargon. The sisters are especially empathetic when it comes to helping women overcome their self-consciousness, though the services they perform—tummy tucks and brow lifts, Botox injections, and chemical peels—are like the first name Dangerbreath: they work well for both women and men.
The technicians at Eternal Athena Laser Like Lipo work to obliterate areas of stubborn fat with an advanced Slim Light laser system. After placing four paddles along the treatment area, a technician emits a cold laser light designed to release water, toxins, and triglyceride contents from over-stuffed fat cells. Once all of these contents make their way out, these cells are then able to shrink, potentially resulting in visible inch-loss and cellulite reduction over time. Techs also provide whole body vibration sessions—which they can pair with Laser Like Lipo treatments—to help boost blood circulation, tone muscles, and perfect Pavarotti impersonations.
When not contouring bodies with lipo laser treatments, Eternal Aethna's team promotes weight loss through a HVS detox program and nutritional counseling sessions.
Fans of HGTV's Living With Ed might remember Renee as the spa-owner friend of Ed Begley Jr. and his wife Rachelle. But the TV show isn’t the 20-year skincare veteran's first brush with fame. Before opening a second location in LA, she had been helping entertainers and other high-profile faces age gracefully for years and her treatments have been featured on numerous TV shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Good Day LA. Instead of subjecting patients to knives, stitches, and weeks spent hiding indoors, her nonsurgical face-lift relies on a computerized device that uses nano signals to lift sagging muscles and build new tissues. Using the FDA-approved Dermosonic method, Renee is also able to channel ultrasonic vibrations to help break up cellulite deposits, unveiling slimmer, shapelier contours ready to be shown off in a swimsuit or a particularly revealing hot-dog costume, and LED light therapy targets age spots on the hands to ensure appendages match their newly youthful bodies.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Glen Farkas helms Weekend Weight Loss Center, where experts well-versed in the complexities of weight fluctuations help patients streamline their physiques. Their rapid-weight-loss programs combine prescription appetite suppressants and treatments for weight-related diseases with consultations that explore potential root causes, such as wearing bowling-ball earrings. Alternatively, cosmetic procedures such as ultrasonic lipo streamline physiques, breaking up fat deposits with ultrasound waves so that the body can easily flush them out. The clinic’s services extend beyond weight loss as well, encompassing hormone replacement therapy and other anti-aging treatments.
When the body is functioning properly, it absorbs fat into the lymphatic system, where it is broke down and excreted through the liver. This process is natural, but sometimes it takes more than the body to trigger it. At Doctors Weight Loss & Body Contouring, technicians prompt the body’s natural fat-reducing process by employing laser energy. The light from the laser penetrates the skin to reach the fat cells, which causes them to release fatty acids into the lymphatic system, as nature always intended.
