During his training at King's College Hospital in London, Claude Matar mastered the old-fashioned art of listening. Today, he still believes that the key to providing a successful diagnosis lies in taking the proper time and energy to listen to each client's concerns. Though he no longer practices medicine, the nutritionist, board-certified naturopathic physician, and founder of Pasadena Weight Loss Center has used his ears and his education to help thousands of clients achieve their individual health goals, including former Dallas star Linda Gray and professional football champ Dwight Hicks.
To help clients shed inches, he utilizes the highly personalized Matar method, a system he believes offers patients their best chances for long-lasting results. It begins with an in-depth evaluation including a nutrient analysis, thyroid tests, and identification of any factors inhibiting weight loss. Matar then consults with the client to develop a plan focused not only on diet and exercise but also on strategies for improved sleep, hydration, and detoxification. He and his staff stay in daily contact to answer questions regarding progress or tips for turning uneaten bear claws into table art and will also reevaluate clients' success at a weekly face-to-face meeting.
Under the guidance of board-certified physician Dr. Kamran Hakimian, Laser Touch Medical Clinic's team of skin professionals apply Veinwave technology to polish body parts marred by visible vessels. After a brief consultation, specialists penetrate the chosen zone with several minute, insulated needles, which apply focused heat to stubborn veins to make them close up, fade away, and leave skin clearer for future games of epidermal tic-tac-toe. Vessel-vanquishing results are usually noticeable immediately and the treatment requires no downtime, lending newly polished skin a speedy return to everyday activities.
Licensed aesthetician Juana Martinez buffs careworn visages with 60-minute private microdermabrasion treatments at Stewart Medical Group. During each treatment, Martinez gently sands epidermises with a minimally abrasive instrument that removes the thick, uneven layer of outer skin, minimizing light scars and uneven pigment caused by sun damage and semi-permanent clown makeup. The treatment also helps collagen levels to find renewed vigor, leading to smooth, even, and younger-looking complexions. Anesthetic is not used during this noninvasive procedure, as most patients report little discomfort and require no downtime.
At Dr. Gold's Anti-Aging Clinic, the staff's primary concern is slowing down Father Time. To do so, they specialize in an array of anti-aging services, including wrinkle-reducing dermal-filler injections, laser treatments, and Pelleve skin rejuvenation. For signs of aging below the surface, such as lethargy or retiring hormones, they may prescribe nutritional supplements or recommend hormone-replacement therapy. On top of all this, the clinic also tackles primary care and weight-loss services.
