Offering treatments that span 5,000 years of health care, the multitalented team at Dr. Midas Medical Group can alleviate ailments with everything from acupuncture, which originated in China five millennia ago, to modern laser technology. Their range of services also treats a wide variety of issues. The board-certified physicians and nurses can just as readily smooth wrinkles with Botox and other dermal fillers, as wield physique-contouring cold lasers, which liquefy fat in hard-to-tone areas. Meanwhile, acupuncturists insert their hair-thin needles into bodies at key points, addressing maladies such as infertility, unwanted weight, and blocked energy pathways. To complement the clinic?s noninvasive services, the staff also performs plastic-surgery treatments, which range from liposuction to face-lifts to setting broken Barbie arms.
Crystals dangling from a chandelier twinkle overhead, illuminating a serene interior punctuated by the bright presence of hot pink orchid plants. Tucked away in private rooms, aestheticians perform a suite of services, from moisturizing facials using Dermaesthetics skin products, to eyelash extensions with JB Lashes to improve eye-batting averages.
The trained staff of Wilshire Center for Dermatology wrangles laser beams, intense lights, and injectables to shape clients' bodies without surgery. Their mastery of laser systems enables them to contour midsections and banish hair from bikini lines, necks, and dorsal fins. They force spider veins into hiding with sclerotherapy and augment butts with injectables.
