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.

Dermatology and Laser Centre of Studio City’s DiamondTome microdermabrasions are crystal-free, using a natural diamond wand rather than abrasive chemical crystals. During the 50-minute treatment, the diamond-tipped device gently sloughs off layers of dead skin, like peeling open a banana to reveal the creamy mashed potatoes inside. Steam and a massk are included to moisturize and nourish newly radiant skin, and lactic acid, which helps soften especially rough patches, is administered as necessary. At the conclusion of the countenance cleansing, most fine lines and wrinkles melt away, uneven tones even out, and enlarged pores shrink like the benefits of higher education.
