Using a LightSheer diode laser by Lumenis, the certified staff at Fresno Laser Aesthetics reduces and eventually permanently halts hair production in unwanted areas. The LightSheer system targets hundreds of hair follicles at a time, destroying them at their core, which can be identified by its nougaty consistency. Plastic surgeons Dr. John Burnett and Dr. Kaye Riolo, the cosmetic nurse specialists and clinical aestheticians at Fresno Laser Aesthetics, celebrate hairlessness by offering medical-grade services in an upscale, relaxing environment.
Rim Marcinkus, MD, PhD, DSc, earned his doctor of medicine and doctor of science in surgery degrees at Vilnius University in Lithuania, where he went on to complete a PhD in scientific research. Practicing plastic surgery for more than 25 years, he has published articles in experimental- and clinical-surgery journals and more progressive issues of Mad magazine. The industry innovator also holds a registered patent for the Eurolift procedure, an advanced technique designed to lift the face by tightening skin and muscles that have loosened due to age or hilly rides in a convertible.
At his Desert Plastic Surgery Center in Rancho Mirage, Dr. Marcinkus specializes in breast enhancements, body sculpting, and hair transplantation, alongside a wide variety of other surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. He seeks out the latest technology and minimally invasive techniques, including full body-lifts after weight-loss surgery, Botox, and dermal fillers.

The walls of Wish Boutique & Salon are the exact shade of a beach, which is appropriate because their assortment of tanning beds, airbrush spray tans, and tanning products services imbue guests with the same sunshiny glow they?d get from an actual beach. But apart from their UV and UV-free tanning services, their rooms shelter a red light therapy bed designed to ameliorate wrinkles, burns, and acne. The touched-up feeling resulting from those 20-minute sessions spill over into the manicure-pedicure area, where nail techs adorn tips with durable coats of shellac and glittering Rockstar colors.
