Beverly Hills Cosmetic Centers' lobby blends cream colored walls and matching marbled tile with dark wood furnishings: a classic combination of colors that hints at luxury. Behind the scenes, however, the team of technicians use techniques that are anything but classic. They wield the latest technology to smooth skin and sculpt bodies, including lasers, ultrasound waves, infrared lights, and fine sprays of crystals. Ultrasonic cavitation, for instance, has proven a popular treatment. Technicians use ultrasonic waves to target fat cells beneath the surface of the skin and eliminate them, just as the Pied Piper coaxed rats from their hiding places with his ultrasonic fiddling, and then made them explode.
Dr. Soheyla Marzvaan may have a degree in dentistry, but teeth aren’t her only area of expertise. At Orange County Facial Cosmetics, she leads a staff in rejuvenating complexions with dermal fillers, peels, and HydraFacials—resurfacing treatments that diminish fine lines and hyperpigmentation. These services appear alongside cosmetic-dentistry offerings such as teeth whitening and veneers.
Certified cosmetic procedure and skincare specialist Natalia Ryndin has spent more than two decades refining her craft. Now at Ilana Botox and Beauty Boutiques, she halts facial aging with Botox and dermal filler injections, especially when she hosts Botox parties for bridal showers or birthdays, along with chemical peels, Ulthera, and CoolSculpting. To the same end, her friendly staff coats faces in peels from top brands such as Elta MD, Skin Medica, Obagi or Vivit?.
