Dr. Joyce Chang at The Medical Skin Clinic groups her treatments into two categories: general medical care and dermatology. These categories encompass the range of skills she acquired while studying everything from pediatrics to geriatrics. Despite the broad scope of her expertise, Dr. Chang takes special interest in all that ails or enhances the female body. Attuned to the many ways that aging affects the appearance, she rejuvenates skin with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, and lasers. At the clinic, Dr. Chang directly supervises licensed aestheticians or medical assistants who diminish fine lines, skin damage, and frozen facial expressions with medical-grade equipment that's only available to physicians.

Trimcare & Safe Laser Centers founder and board-certified doctor of internal, bariatric, and anti-aging medicine Ivan Goldsmith has been practicing medicine for more than two decades, during which time he has witnessed the challenges faced by people struggling to lose weight and gain self-esteem. At Trimcare & Safe Laser Centers, he helps clients lose weight and keep it off with a combination of appetite suppressants, physician supervision, and behavioral modification. Dr. Goldsmith first uses an InBody biometric scale to analyze body fat. He then injects vitamin B12 and other lipotropic shots into the body to jump-start the weight-loss program and boost the client’s energy. He also helps his patients achieve longer-lasting results with FDA-approved appetite suppressants and a behavioral consultation that re-teaches people how to eat.
In addition to weight-loss programs, the doctor and his team beautify bodies with services such as cosmetic injectables and i-lipo laser body-contouring treatments. They also restore vim and vigor via hormone-replacement therapy, which supplements bodily chemicals stolen by the aging process or desperate bodybuilders.
