Harnessing SX series microcurrents, the dermal-restoration team at Neurotris targets sagging skin cells on the cellular level. During the 30-minute treatments, technicians apply two hand pieces with four electronically charged metal probes to the surface of the skin. The instruments harness high-definition frequencies, which aim to promote wrinkle reduction, tighten and refine skin, and tone facial muscles loosened after ill-conceived attempts at eradicating wrinkles using high-velocity catapults.
At Orange County Dental Specialists, the highly trained team includes general dentists, a periodontist, an endodontist, an oral surgeon, and a pediatric dentist.

The staff’s broad range of expertise allows patients to receive a variety of treatments under one roof, ranging from dental implants and porcelain veneers to root canals to relieve pain and Invisalign clear braces that, like a chocolate-milk mustache after a spray tan, are nearly invisible.

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.
