LA Laser and Skin Center's board-certified dermatologist Dr. Daniel Taheri decorates his office with a Valentine Honor, the most prestigious award bestowed upon a UCLA Medical School graduate. A tenacious academic after graduation, he has published more than 25 articles in scientific journals and authored a tome, Practical Management of Skin Cancer, which medical schools use in their curricula, and high school cafeterias boil down into lunches. The Center reaps the benefits of Dr. Taheri's continued diligence, with special departments for skin-cancer management and medical dermatology. Beauty is also cultivated at the cutting edge. Surgery restores battered hands or shapes alluring contours into monuments to the hourglass, and FDA-cleared lasers rejuvenate complexions. The Center is also among the first to try new cosmetic procedures, such as Ultherapy, an FDA-approved noninvasive facelift that has been featured in press outlets such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, In Style, and CBS's The Early Show. Dr. Taheri demonstrates his expertise at eight LA Laser and Skin Centers in California and Nevada, and shares professional insights on television networks including CNN and NBC, clips of which you can see on the Center's YouTube channel.
Established in 1990, Hair Restoration of California—which has been featured on Los Angeles Fox News and KCAL Channel 9—offers a variety of treatments that address hair loss in men, women, and children. In addition to low-level laser hair-therapy treatments and surgical hair transplants performed by board-certified plastic surgeons, they give their clients nonsurgical hair replacement options such as Ultratress hair-progression hair extensions. They treat patients who suffer from male- and female-pattern baldness, as well as those who have medical hair loss caused by chemotherapy or alopecia. Inside their facility, an experienced staff of trichologists and beauticians work inside private styling rooms while clients read, watch television, or stare at the ceiling trying to name all the constellations in alphabetical order.
Jungkyo Park, the licensed acupuncturist at Rapha Wellness Clinic, believes that the body can be healthy as long as it is in balance. He wants to help his clients achieve the best health possible in his clinic, where he offers treatments such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal remedies, cupping, and moxibustion. Moxibustion is traditionally intended to stimulate the flow of vital energy with burning moxa wool, made from the herb mugwort, placed near acupuncture points on the body. Patients suffering from migraines, depression, chronic pain, the constant sensation of hearing distant circus music, and other ailments all meet with Jungkyo at the office to discuss possible treatments.
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.
Prior to taking the helm of Beverly Hills Institute of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Soheil Lahijani first honed his craft at some of the top programs in the country and by the side of international surgical stars. What he learned as the chief resident at Yale University-Saint Mary's Hospital and in the operating rooms of Vanderbilt University and exam rooms of Barcelona, Spain, shaped him into a skilled plastic surgeon.
Before he ever picks up a needle, scalpel, or can of spray glitter, he and his staff educate prospective patients on their cosmetic options and counsel them on realistic expected results. Only then does Dr. Lahijani set about performing face-lifts and rhinoplasty, augmenting and lifting breasts, and reshaping physiques with liposuction.
An expert reviewer for the Medical Board of California, SoCal native Dr. Rady Rahban has distinguished himself as a rising star in the field of human clock rewinding, enjoying the limelight on the Style Network and TLC's How I Lost 100 Pounds. Besides plastic surgery, this philanthropic face-fixer specializes in nonsurgical procedures, filling facial fault lines to prevent countenance drift in his tasteful, homey office. Botox treatments may smooth seniority-striped skin from the headier altitudes. Twenty units of Botox are roughly enough to diminish crow's-feet, brow-bridging frown lines, or forehead furrows. Facial fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm use hyaluronic acid, a biological substance found in all species, which can be effective against the creases that crop up between nose and mouth. Like a popsicle's Caribbean honeymoon, all three treatments are temporary and require fresh infusions roughly every three to six months, with minimal recovery time.
