Though Laser Eye Center has been around since 1986, its technology is nothing less than modern. Treatment rooms at the five surgery centers boast Allegretto Wave and IntraLase FS Laser systems, developed to reduce near and farsightedness, as well as astigmatisms and blinks stuck mid-morse code. But just as important as the technology are the surgeons, who have completed extensive training to pilot these systems and perform other sight-bolstering treatments. It's these factors that have helped surgeons, both past and present, perform over 200,000 vision-correction procedures.
After Dr. Mitra Mogharabi earned her doctor of dental surgery degree at UCLA, she found it hard to leave the classroom behind. In addition to running her own private practice, she's been a member of the teaching faculty at UCLA School of Dentistry for more than 20 years. At her upscale Encino Boutique Dentistry office, she welcomes sets of teeth in need of everything from preventive treatments to cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Mogharabi sees dentistry as both a science and an art, meaning she's equally at ease fighting plaque or painting a still life in miniature on a patient's incisors.
As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Sophie Shirin works to rid the skin of aesthetic hindrances such as redness and wrinkles, in addition to medical ailments such as dangerous moles and cancer. She personally administers all treatments at her modern office equipped with up-to-date technology. Laser treatments combat the various signs of aging, and injectables reduce fine lines or plump collagen in the face. When scouring birthday suits for carcinomas and melanomas, Dr. Shirin pays extra-close attention, as early detection of these growths provides the best chance for a cure. She’s also specially trained in Mohs micrographic surgery, allowing her to leave healthy tissue intact when removing the malevolent cells.
Dr. Saul Lahijani draws upon extensive experience and education as he works to help clients achieve their aesthetic dreams. He began his education at USC, where he earned his undergraduate degree before obtaining a doctorate of medicine at Ross University School of Medicine, finishing at the top of his class. He next performed several residencies at Yale and Vanderbilt, before staying an international fellowship in Barcelona. Today, he welcomes patients into his clinic for non-invasive and surgical treatments, wielding lasers and scalpels to sculpt bodies with the precision of a bionic Michelangelo.
Many people may have misgivings about turning to cosmetic injectables such as Botox and Dysport, and no one understands those hesitations better than Dr. Sherly M. Soleiman, MD. Dr. Soleiman is a board-certified physician who has worked in urgent care facilities and family practices, but some years ago, she decided to expand her expertise into the field of cosmetic injectables after she suffered from a poorly-administered injection herself. "I had the medical skills and coordination in my hands to do better," she told Ventura Boulevard magazine.
Today, Dr. Soleiman continues to attend regular lectures and courses that allow her to deliver cosmetic injections as safely and efficiently as possible; in the past, she has even taken sculpting classes to enhance her understanding of facial symmetry. To help fight the aging process, she might recommend Botox, Dysport, or Juvederm injections, which help smooth wrinkles and diminish other signs of age, such as facial lines or a tattoo of Charlie Chaplin's autograph. And, in further pursuit of beauty and youth, she also utilizes the Obagi Skin Care System and can proscribe the lash-growing treatment Latisse.
