Just a stone's throw from the ocean, Pure Body Wellness Center takes advantage of the smell of salt in the air and the sounds of gently crashing waves to cultivate a tranquil ambiance. Private treatment rooms add to the relaxation, enabling clients to kick back in peace while estheticians swaddle bodies in body wraps or dig out dirt and loose change from pores during facials. Other staffers, meanwhile, focus on overall health with private colon hydrotherapy and acupuncture sessions. Even the center?s manicures and pedicures happen in private rooms, where clients sink into cozy chairs while technicians beautify fingers and toes.
A trio of physicians?a dermatologist, an ophthalmic surgeon, and a plastic surgeon?keeps watch over both DermaBare offices, warding off signs of aging from wrinkles to cellulite. Registered nurses aim to obliterate unwanted hair at the root using one of three advanced laser hair-removal machines: the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, Candela GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro. Heated energy rays can also be pointed at faces to help encourage collagen production or send spider veins scattering off of legs and underneath the floorboards. DermaBare's other aesthetic treatments include dermal fillers, chemical peels, and plastic surgery treatments such as breast augmentation and rhinoplasty.
At Orange County Dental Specialists, the highly trained team includes general dentists, a periodontist, an endodontist, an oral surgeon, and a pediatric dentist. The office is helmed by Dr. Nina Sharma, a Southern California native and a ten-year veteran in the war on plaque. 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.
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.
The South Coast Dermatology Institute provides the very latest in skin care and advanced treatments for problems that affect the skin, hair, and body.
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is led by Dr. Vince Afsahi, M.D. and Board Certified Dermatologist.
