Advanced Dermatology Care of Southern California's medical aesthetician, Teresa Marasco, restores weary visages with renewing treatments that integrate traditional dermatological therapies with natural remedies to leave skin calmed and glowing. After discussing each client's skincare concerns, Teresa begins the 60-minute session by customizing a nontoxic facial peel that blends proven skin-sloughing ingredients such as alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids with vitamins, fruit, and plant extracts for a veritable salad of skin pampering. Then, pores enjoy a deep cleansing accompanied by extractions to rid congested skin of blemishes and other debris for a anti-aging effect. Freshened faces then plant themselves in front of a crimson light for a dose of red-light therapy for about 10 minutes to eliminate dead cells and accelerate the growth of collagen fiber. By the end of Teresa's restorative ministrations, skin boasts lighter pigment, firmer texture, and pores refined enough to take tea with the queen's band of corgi attendants.

Dermatology and Laser Medical Center's Alex Khadavi knows so much about skincare, he's a go-to expert for both celebrities and day-to-day patients. The board-certified dermatologist and industry innovator founded Advanced Skin and Hair, a company that uses years of clinical research to develop products for hair loss, acne, and signs of aging. Using his expertise in the area of blemish abolishment, Dr. Khadavi helped a friend of Tori Spelling get rid of acne before her big day on an episode of the Oxygen network's Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings. He used his Clearogen protocol to assist a self-conscious teen with her severe acne on an episode of The Tyra Show, and appeared on Extra to promote his natural Revivogen formula, which is designed to reverse hair loss caused by genetics or sandpaper pillowcases.
Dr. Khadavi is also the center's chief cosmetic surgeon and specializes in medical procedures, such as Mohs micrographic surgery for skin cancer. He's written numerous magazine articles on cosmetic treatments, and is a national trainer for Botox, Juv?derm, Restylane, and advanced laser treatments.

Under the guidance of board-certified dermatologists Dr. A. David Rahimi and Dr. Michael Lin, who has appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the licensed aestheticians at Westlake Laser & Aesthetics Medical Group slough off dead skin cells during 30-minute glycolic- or salicylic-acid peels. Aestheticians apply professional Linage serums specially developed by Dr. Lin to reduce fine lines, fight acne, and make visages smoother than a dolphin at a singles bar. Typically, the treatments can improve the appearance of faces, necks, and chests by lightening pigmentation and revealing a healthy, rosy glow. After the resurfacing session, patients can return instantly to work or competitive pole vaulting, as there is no downtime required.
