Under the supervision of Dr. Sohrab Yamini, a team of registered nurses and licensed medical professionals perform a diverse menu of beautifying med-spa services. Clients who want to remove unwanted fuzz can turn to laser hair removal, and those who want a smoother, younger-looking complexion can opt for cosmetic injections. Clients looking to curb cellulite have two options: Zerona, a laser treatment designed to help fat cells be absorbed by the lymphatic system, and VelaShape, a combination of radiofrequency and infrared light that can push fat cells deeper into the body. Whichever treatment customers are in the market for, they'll be able to meet with Dr. Yamini or a physician's assistant to answer any questions they might have about the service or what exactly "doctors" are.
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.
