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.
The aestheticians at Skin Body Lounge, deemed Best Day Spa by the 2011 LA Hotlist, aim to even skin tones, mitigate blemishes, and evict unsightly fuzz with noninvasive skincare and hair-removal services. During full-face photo-rejuvenation, nonablative lasers emit concentrated light to target specific skin pigments?including dark spots left over from acne scarring or convincing dalmatian costumes?stimulating collagen and oxygen production to destroy unwanted bacteria and leave skin radiant. Pulsed-light hair removal, Epilar biochemical solutions, and waxing services strip wayward strands. Those looking to lose inches and smooth cellulite can enlist treatments such as detoxifying body wraps and electronic muscle stimulation. Results-oriented facials are customized to the unique needs of each visage, and microdermabrasion sloughs away dead cells to improve skin tone and texture. Airbrush tanning and makeup services get clients suited up for an evening out more effectively than wearing a cutout of the Hulk's face.
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.
The therapists at Blue Diamond Spa render skincare services, massage therapy, and energy healing. From facials and micropeels to seaweed treatments and body waxing, experienced skincare specialists remove dead skin cells from surfaces and dirt from pores with products from Dermalogica and Jane Iredale. Massage therapists knead out tension and help prevent injury by applying various degrees of pressure, like parents trying to get a perfect child to eat dessert for once. Alternate therapies treat more stubborn imperfections with plastic surgery and Zerona laser treatments that help patients lose weight. Their energy healing, meanwhile, can relieve chronic pain and fatigue. Blue Diamond Spa offers beauty injectables such as Botox and fillers, as well as Carboxy. In addition, there are two Ayurvedic-medicine practitioners on the staff.
Offering treatments that span 5,000 years of health care, the multitalented team at Dr. Midas Medical Group can alleviate ailments with everything from acupuncture, which originated in China five millennia ago, to modern laser technology. Their range of services also treats a wide variety of issues. The board-certified physicians and nurses can just as readily smooth wrinkles with Botox and other dermal fillers, as wield physique-contouring cold lasers, which liquefy fat in hard-to-tone areas. Meanwhile, acupuncturists insert their hair-thin needles into bodies at key points, addressing maladies such as infertility, unwanted weight, and blocked energy pathways. To complement the clinic?s noninvasive services, the staff also performs plastic-surgery treatments, which range from liposuction to face-lifts to setting broken Barbie arms.
Though Laser Eye Center has been around since 1986, its technology is nothing less than modern. Treatment rooms at the five surgery centers boast Allegretto Wave and IntraLase FS Laser systems, developed to reduce near and farsightedness, as well as astigmatisms and blinks stuck mid-morse code. But just as important as the technology are the surgeons, who have completed extensive training to pilot these systems and perform other sight-bolstering treatments. It's these factors that have helped surgeons, both past and present, perform over 200,000 vision-correction procedures.
