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.
Rim Marcinkus, MD, PhD, DSc, earned his doctor of medicine and doctor of science in surgery degrees at Vilnius University in Lithuania, where he went on to complete a PhD in scientific research. Practicing plastic surgery for more than 25 years, he has published articles in experimental- and clinical-surgery journals and more progressive issues of Mad magazine. The industry innovator also holds a registered patent for the Eurolift procedure, an advanced technique designed to lift the face by tightening skin and muscles that have loosened due to age or hilly rides in a convertible.
At his Desert Plastic Surgery Center in Rancho Mirage, Dr. Marcinkus specializes in breast enhancements, body sculpting, and hair transplantation, alongside a wide variety of other surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. He seeks out the latest technology and minimally invasive techniques, including full body-lifts after weight-loss surgery, Botox, and dermal fillers.
The FDA-approved Venus Concept cellulite-reduction treatment employs bipolar radio frequency and magnetic pulses to break up cellulite deposits and smooth skin. After a consultation to explain the procedure and answer questions, trained staff members guide the noninvasive mechanism over the selected target area, delivering magnetic energy to stimulate blood flow and iron-coated skeletons. The process helps disperse cellulite clumps and boost collagen production, smoothing skin with gentle heat akin to that experienced during a hot-stone massage. As the skin’s surface evens out, the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and enlarged pores disappears like a villain in a house of mirrors. Treatments should be scheduled one week apart.
Beauty surfaces every day at Temecula Med Spa without its technicians or aestheticians ever picking up a scalpel. Instead, their noninvasive treatments harness the power of lasers, intense pulsed light, or cosmetic injectables to erase blemishes, wrinkles, and unwanted hair. Temecula Med Spa also offers facials and peels, which rely upon Image skincare products to cleanse, tone, and beautify complexions.
Along a hiking trail, it is not unusual to find a cairn, which means "path" in Gaelic. These stacks of stones, designed to help mark the trail, also serve as the inspiration for Kairin Clinic, a medical practice created to guide patients to better health. Two sisters, Dr. Aimee Warren and Rebecca Warren, FNP, set out to create the kind of practice they'd choose for themselves, combining traditional medical care with the relaxing experience of visiting a spa, yoga class, or scented-candle aisle. Family and aesthetic medical care top the list of services, though nutritional counseling, weight management, women's fitness, yoga, and guided meditation classes are also offered. Patients waiting for their appointments can sip herbal tea in a relaxing, tranquil space.

Contour Skin & Laser's signature treatments serve the sole purpose of turning back the clock. These treatments—which together comprise a comprehensive skincare program—accomplish this effect by brightening and depuffing under-eye circles, plumping lips, and boosting the elasticity and firmness of facial skin. The majority of Contour’s other services, from Botox injections to CO2 fractional laser resurfacing treatments, support the anti-aging mission, tackling facial wrinkles and erasing dullness from skin. Licensed medical providers such as nurses, the doctor who oversees the clinic, and a fast-talking stethoscope perform each service after holding a consultation to diagnose the skin’s underlying issues and formulate a treatment plan.
