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.
Dr. Raphael Darvish sensed he might become a doctor at a very young age. Not because a game of MASH told him he would become one, but because he is the fourth generation in a family of physicians. With Skinpeccable, he has turned his family's history into his own practice. Growing up in Southern California, he quickly recognized the need to create a dermatology and laser center to serve the cosmetic needs of the surrounding area. He and his team of laser nurses and aestheticians practice with advanced and safe laser technology, soothing sun damage, removing veins and unwanted hair, and performing laser facials.

The staff also performs aesthetic services such as Botox injections and 3-D eyelash extensions.
Pacific Ocean Laser Center has been zapping unwanted hair with laser beams for 15 years. Using cutting-edge equipment from GentleLASE and GentleYAG, the team can remove skin tags and rejuvenate faces as well. Other, non-laser-related beautifying services on offer include wrinkle-erasing Botox and Restylane injections, acne treatments, and weight-loss programs.
With Dr.Melamed at the helm, West LA Medical & Skincare connects clients with treatments that bring out their existing, natural beauty. Dr. Melamed is Chairman of the Laser Committee (AAAM), a physician educator, a Board Certified Aesthetic Medicine and Laser Surgeon. His talent for blending art and science with a combination of advanced lasers and in-office treatments ensures that his patients are receiving treatments that address their individual needs.
He is a true pioneer in the area of reversing the signs of aging with minimal or no downtime and is the only person in the practice who conducts the evaluations (there are no estheticians) and performs each and every procedure. Dr. Melamed takes his time with patients to help define their goals in order to apply the appropriate treatments to ensure they receive their desired modality.
Some of the procedures for which Dr.Melamed has become known include: Photodynamic Therapy for the treatment of cystic acne, keratoses and other skin diseases; utilization of the newest laser equipment and treatments available for skin tightening and his own patent for hair restoration which has been featured on television and magazines including Fox 11 News, Good Day LA, CBS 2 News, and Los Angeles Magazine.
Founded more than 25 years ago by dermatologists and aestheticians, Charlotte-James Skin Care has spent years refining its scientifically informed approach to skincare. Taking into account different skin types and conditions, treatments are custom designed to suit each customer's complexion. The microdermabrasion process, which reduces the visual impact of fine lines, sun damage, marker drawings, and cavernous pores, starts with a gentle cleansing of the face, neck, and chest. Fine crystals are drawn across the epidermis using vacuum pressure, dislodging dead skin cells and embedded raisins, which are subsequently washed away with a mild glycolic acid. Faces are then topped with a hydrating anti-inflammatory mask and given an antioxidant moisturizer and sunscreen rubdown, a pre-emptive measure against aggressive UV radiation. The green, organic chemical peel rejuvenates skin with a mix of biological and botanical enzymes that muscle their way past the layer of dead skin cells, causing them to peel like a banana skin softened by being soaked in warm butter.
