Fans of HGTV's Living With Ed might remember Renee as the spa-owner friend of Ed Begley Jr. and his wife Rachelle. But the TV show isn’t the 20-year skincare veteran's first brush with fame. Before opening a second location in LA, she had been helping entertainers and other high-profile faces age gracefully for years and her treatments have been featured on numerous TV shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Good Day LA. Instead of subjecting patients to knives, stitches, and weeks spent hiding indoors, her nonsurgical face-lift relies on a computerized device that uses nano signals to lift sagging muscles and build new tissues. Using the FDA-approved Dermosonic method, Renee is also able to channel ultrasonic vibrations to help break up cellulite deposits, unveiling slimmer, shapelier contours ready to be shown off in a swimsuit or a particularly revealing hot-dog costume, and LED light therapy targets age spots on the hands to ensure appendages match their newly youthful bodies.
Losing weight can be an uphill battle, but at Lipolight LAX a team of skilled technicians can make it a speedier and easier process. The staff perform advanced Lipo Light laser treatments, which are designed to painlessly target and smooth lumpy areas on the waist, hips, and limbs. As hand-sized paddles release red LED light across the chosen area, the underlying cells release triglycerides and fatty acids, which the body converts into energy. This conversion causes the cells to slim and the silhouette to become more contoured. Though up to six sessions are recommended, Lipolight LAX ensures comfortable visits by using low-level lasers that warm the skin while a technician softly imitates ocean sounds in the corner of the private treatment room.
