The lotus flower symbolizes renewal, rejuvenation, and refinement. Using this blossom as their inspiration, the beauty professionals behind Lotus Beverly Hills Skin Center aim to help renew, rejuvenate, and refine skin with cosmetic injections, peels, and laser treatments. Noninvasive treatments help clients on a quest for weight loss to achieve shapelier silhouettes with lasers, radio frequencies, and appetite suppressants. When patients stroll through Lotus Beverly Hills Skin Center's glass doors, cherry-blossom murals greet their eyes from behind a dark wooden desk. Leather chairs, potted plants, and tan fabric couches occupy the serene space, which comfortably fits three laser-treatment rooms, four skincare rooms, and one fully functioning Gutenberg printing press.
Gold and burgundy walls, divans, and throw pillows provide a touch of elegance inside the office of Cosmetic Laser Center of Irvine, melting away the cold sterility normally associated with a high-tech clinic. Dr. Morris Ahdoot opened the center in 2005, and since then has devoted himself to helping women to feel good about themselves. He combines double specialties in gynecology and cosmetic skincare with a naturally gentle demeanor, addressing beauty issues while encouraging clients to talk freely about their individual needs. Dr. Ahdoot's communication skills evidence themselves during free consultations, in which he takes time to discuss patients' concerns face-to-face rather than speaking through the office intercom.
Dr. Ali Sepehr has spent his entire career focused on the human face. While other doctors dabble in a variety of fields, he felt that choosing one specialty would allow him to truly treat a patient to the best of his ability. This single-minded devotion has led him to train under renowned surgeon Peter Adamson, receive board certification, and earn the 2010 Reuther Kris Conrad Merit Award for outstanding achievement in his field. He demonstrates his expertise at The OC Center for Facial Plastic Surgery by performing a variety of facial treatments, from liquid face-lifts and Botox injections to eyelid lifts and brow surgeries.
At Dental2000, Dr. Nimesh Patel refurbishes worn-out smiles with cosmetic-dentistry services ranging from invisible braces and whitening treatments to implants and sealants. A proponent of sedation dentistry, Dr. Patel anesthetizes pretreatment anxiety born out of dental phobias or the belief that teeth have become self-aware. He and his staff also speak a wide variety of languages, and are able to answer patient queries in Gujarati, Hindi, and Punjabi.
Drawing upon 35 years of medical experience, Dr. James G. Gitlin oversees a team of registered nurses that rewinds face time with peels, IPL photofacials, and cosmetic injectables. With access to a nonsurgical roster of complexion refreshments that includes microdermabrasion, cellulite banishment, and laser hair removal, clients can look younger and beam wrinkles back in time to ancient raisin orchards. A boutique of clinical skincare products and cosmetics pampers clients after they leave the spa.
