Under the expert guidance of Dr. Daniel Taheri, the staff at LA Laser and Skin Center harnesses laser-fat-removal technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can slink away. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time. Technicians perform the six treatments within 72 hours of one another over the span of two weeks, the exact length of time it takes a laser to cross a football field. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, regular hydration, and avoidance of caffeine and alcohol.
During his years at Vein Clinic of Las Vegas, American College of Phlebology member Dr. Bashy has successfully banished more than 50,000 spider veins and other vascular specters with sclerotherapy injections. Following an initial consultation to determine each patient's trouble spots and penchant for argyle stockings, the doctor slips slender needles packed with non-saline Asclera solution into unwanted veins, gradually erasing epidermal etchings and rerouting blood cells onto more hidden highways. Patients can de-spider two body areas in one appointment or pummel a single extremity with injections at three-week intervals. Unlike traditional saline injections, Asclera injections are relatively painless result in no downtime, speeding visitors off to sleeker cancan tryouts within 45 minutes.
One thing is evident at Couture Dermatology and Plastic Surgery: board-certified dermatologist Dr. Candace Thornton Spann and her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Marvin Spann, prefer the latest technologies. They use vShape lasers, which can treat cellulite; Lutronic Spectra lasers, which are FDA-approved to reduce melasma; and Body-Jet liposuction machines, which can remove fat without general anesthesia and a reading of Goodnight Moon. Of course, they and their staff also schedule traditional plastic surgery, dermatology, and spa services such as lifts, facials, and chemical peels.
The two board-certified plastic surgeons at Hankins & Sohn Plastic Surgery Associates, Dr. W. Tracy Hankins and Dr. Samuel Sohn, specialize in breast aesthetics. As some of the largest users of breast implants in the country, the doctors are well equipped to perform breast augmentations, reductions, lifts, and reconstructions. They also skillfully rejuvenate faces with face-lifts and Botox, and they slim bodies by sucking out fat with SmartLipo liposuction or taking off the patient’s snowsuit. In fact, the doctors partner with some of the Valley’s gastric-bypass surgeons to help contour bodies after clients have had their stomachs shrunk.
At locations across the country, the technicians of Lipo Laser Centers of America rely on advanced technology to produce the beautyifying results of surgery, only without the scalpels. Using a combination of suction, laser energy, and cooling techniques, their FDA-approved Cynosure TriActive machines can eliminate cellulite on the thighs and buttocks, while also massaging and soothing muscles. When paired with 15- to 20-minute vibration plate sessions, their low-level lipo-laser devices can help bodies shed fat and inches. In fact, after only two lipo-laser sessions, patients may observe up to two-inch reductions from their waistlines and a newfound ability to squeeze themselves through skeleton keyholes.
Dr. Christopher Khorsandi is a board-certified plastic surgeon and the two-time recipient of a national award for patient satisfaction. He earns clients' loyalty and trust by performing an array of natural-looking procedures. Aesthetic services range from breast augmentation to hair restoration and scar removal. Other treatments can relieve migraines or alleviate arthritis, allowing patients to rejoin their intramural thumb-wrestling leagues.
