The staff also hold monthly seminars on wellness and social graces, and primp the airwaves with a beauty-focused radio show on KMRB Chinese Cantonese Radio.

Under direction from the doctor, aestheticians and registered nurse on staff keep clients looking youthful with the latest med-spa treatments and skincare regimens.

They also provide facials that cleanse and nourish careworn skin.
The team of cosmetic and plastic surgeons at Athenix Body Sculpting Institute understands the direct link between physical appearance and self-confidence. In their quest to collectively boost the public's self-esteem, they actively reshape and refine clients' problem areas using the industry's latest technologies?including Natrelle breast implants, natural fat transfers, Body-Jet liposuction, and nonsurgical body contouring?to create curves that parabolas could only dream of.
Many of the clinic's doctors also dedicate their efforts to reshaping the lives of those less fortunate in the community. Dr. Maurice Sherman, the clinic's chief medical officer, donates his time and talents to victims of domestic violence, and Dr. Millicent Odunze repairs cleft palates and other facial deformities as a volunteer for Operation Smile.
Beaux Contours: An Aesthetic Institute was founded by Dr. Feyi Emembolu, who completed her residency at the University of Chicago, one of the country's top medical schools, and Dr. Charles Otieno, who completed his residency at another of the country's top medical schools—UCLA. These two are joined by Dr. Joseph Bivens, an aesthetic plastic surgeon who has been contouring bodies since 1988, and Dr. Dwight Reynolds, who has trained more than 700 physicians and Operation game enthusiasts in the United States and abroad in liposuction techniques and suture suspension. All four doctors stay abreast of the latest developments in plastic surgery so they can surgically contour bodies, tuck tummies, and boost bust sizes using the latest techniques.
At Vena Vascular Lab & Vein Clinic, vein specialist Dr. Vahe Melkonyan believes patients are only as healthy as their veins.

Then, he targets malformations and varicose veins with laser ablation, radiofrequency, or cosmetic removal. Cosmetically, he also evaporates unsightly spider veins with sclerotherapy solution.
