Headed by Dr. Sanjay Grover, The Center specializes in aesthetic treatments that employ up-to-the-minute technology, which garnered it a segment on Access Hollywood. DermaSweep microdermabrasion sidesteps the drawbacks of other face-smoothing methods with a variable-level vacuum pump that treats skin without resorting to painful, messy crystal abrasions. The vacuum sloughs off old skin from the overburdened backs of younger cells, allowing a newer, smoother epidermal layer to shine through. This treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and nosy in-laws.
42 years. 30,000 procedures. 20,000 patients. It's no small feat, but medical director Dr. P. James Voloshin has been fully committed to his clients since 1972. At Newport Surgery Institute, he and his team upgrade looks with a full spread of aesthetic services, from noninvasive microdermabrasion facials to liposuction. Each procedure is tailored to the desires of each client, who can convey their aesthetic hopes to the staff in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, or Dothraki.

Dr. Walton Monetgut's years of experience performing surgical cosmetic procedures have not only made him a skilled and confident practitioner, they've also equipped him to lead the talented staff of New Contours. Their collective goal: enhancing the natural beauty of patients with advanced cosmetic procedures including facelifts, rhinoplasty, and fat transfers. They also provide nonsurgical med-spa treatments using a variety of professional skincare products. For an even deeper visible effect, dermal filler injections plump fine lines scribbled across the face and lasers remove unwanted hair and small vegetable gardens that have sprouted across the body.
Contour Dermatology bolsters patients struggling with friction-inducing strands and stubble with safe, comfortable laser hair-removal techniques. Over the course of three sessions, medically trained staffers teleport black or brunette fuzz from the face or body to a far-off galaxy by aiming a low-energy GentleLase beam at follicular bases. Charged particles carry enough energy to blast away the melanin inside errant bristles but leave the surrounding skin healthy and unharmed. Like planning a date for your parents, the procedure can be slightly uncomfortable, so technicians employ a cool laser tip, gel, or spray to soothe the skin and help spare nerves undue unpleasantness. Most complexions are acceptable candidates for laser hair removal, but clients with a very dark complexion may be subject to a spot test to ensure effective treatment. Clients need three to six sessions on average to impede ill-placed tufts during the active phase of each follicle's growth cycle.
A board-certified surgeon who lent his talents to ABC's Extreme Makeover, Dr. Robert W. Kessler helps clients become their most confident selves through innovative cosmetic treatments. Instead of overhauling a client's appearance, Dr. Kessler uses patients' old photos and marble busts to restore a natural youthfulness that's unique to each individual. Treatments are generally targeted toward the face, chest, or body, and include surgical facelifts and breast augmentation. The doctor also counsels all clients on nonsurgical options, ensuring that patients make informed choices that are right for them.
