Contour Dermatology bolsters patients struggling with friction-inducing strands and stubble with safe, comfortable laser hair-removal techniques. Over the course of three sessions, medically trained staffers teleport black or brunette fuzz from the face or body to a far-off galaxy by aiming a low-energy GentleLase beam at follicular bases. Charged particles carry enough energy to blast away the melanin inside errant bristles but leave the surrounding skin healthy and unharmed. Like planning a date for your parents, the procedure can be slightly uncomfortable, so technicians employ a cool laser tip, gel, or spray to soothe the skin and help spare nerves undue unpleasantness. Most complexions are acceptable candidates for laser hair removal, but clients with a very dark complexion may be subject to a spot test to ensure effective treatment. Clients need three to six sessions on average to impede ill-placed tufts during the active phase of each follicle's growth cycle.
Los Cerritos Optometry's Dr. Chenh Vong and his staffers—who speak English, Armenian, Spanish, and Vietnamese—keep eyes healthy with services such as routine eye exams and myopia control, giving patients a wide range of options for addressing prescription changes. After the doctor checks them for eye problems such as glaucoma or 1-D vision, patients can pop in a pair of contact lenses or slip on a pair of stylish frames from Gucci, Coach, or Prada to pull back the veil of encroaching blurriness.
