A trio of physicians—a dermatologist, an ophthalmic surgeon, and a plastic surgeon—keeps watch over both DermaBare offices, warding off signs of aging from wrinkles to cellulite. Registered nurses aim to obliterate unwanted hair at the root using one of three advanced laser hair-removal machines: the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, Candela GentleLase, and GentleLase Pro. Heated energy rays can also be pointed at faces to help encourage collagen production or send spider veins scattering off of legs and underneath the floorboards. DermaBare's other aesthetic treatments include dermal fillers, chemical peels, and plastic surgery treatments such as breast augmentation and rhinoplasty.
Dr. Ronnie N. Dawood and his staff at Sublime Medical Aesthetics & Dermatology treat patients with the care that comes from believing that "cosmetic surgery is never routine." Though treatments may have been performed hundreds of times, the licensed surgeon and physician takes nothing for granted—making sure to carefully look at each patient's medical history, current health, and reasons for seeking treatment before agreeing to perform procedures. The staffers pride themselves on staying current on the latest, safest practices, which they use to enhance façades through nonsurgical or minor surgical procedures, including laser vein therapy, liposuction, and Botox injections.
The knowledgeable staffers at Planet Beauty stock the store’s shelves with enough top-quality beauty products to outfit a regiment of beauticians. Guided by experience as aestheticians, stylists, and makeup artists, they help guests navigate the roster of premium brands, which includes bad-hair-day-banishing products from Frederic Fekkai and Kérastase. Skincare potions from Dermalogica and Peter Thomas Roth clear facial canvases before applications of Smashbox blush brighten cheeks or Divaderme lash extender make eyelashes visible from orbit.
Dr. Frederick L. Stafford leads the team at Contours as they reshape physiques and rejuvenate skin. Fat-trimming procedures take the form of high-tech VelaShape and Endermologie treatments or weight-loss programs and personal training. Facials and beauty injectables keep wrinkles at bay, while lasers blast unwanted hair, unsightly spider veins, and slanderous thought bubbles. Meanwhile, large windows grant clients picturesque views of adjacent Lake Mission Viejo, at once calming nerves and lifting spirits.
Salon 117 & Essence Day Spa treats tender outer layers to the touch-ups and rubdowns they so earnestly crave. The combo massage rubs out tension in a session that alternates between gentle Swedish strokes and diligent deep-tissue techniques.
When health woes bring patients down, the team at Dr. Turek's Wellness Center finds a way to restore each person’s path to wellness. Chiropractic works to realign the spine, helping relieve pain and subdue injuries. Licensed massage therapists focus their calming kneads on the areas that need them the most and adjust pressure as the patient directs using controlled “oohs” and “ahhs.” Aestheticians wield corrective skin solutions during facials for help with blemishes, aging, and general skin care.
