The lotus flower symbolizes renewal, rejuvenation, and refinement. Using this blossom as their inspiration, the beauty professionals behind Lotus Beverly Hills Skin Center aim to help renew, rejuvenate, and refine skin with cosmetic injections, peels, and laser treatments. Noninvasive treatments help clients on a quest for weight loss to achieve shapelier silhouettes with lasers, radio frequencies, and appetite suppressants. When patients stroll through Lotus Beverly Hills Skin Center's glass doors, cherry-blossom murals greet their eyes from behind a dark wooden desk. Leather chairs, potted plants, and tan fabric couches occupy the serene space, which comfortably fits three laser-treatment rooms, four skincare rooms, and one fully functioning Gutenberg printing press.
Body Sculpt Wraps are designed to spot-reduce bulges by sending toxins on a one-way trip out through the lymphatic system. By targeting trouble spots with non-invasive radio energy, technicians are able to break up the toxins and fats that populate the adipose cells' overstuffed walls. Then, the wrap's herbal and enzyme solution penetrate the outer layers of skin, drawing out the excess cellular gunk and flushing it from the area with the body's own lymphatic system. When combined with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, these detoxifying treatments can help melt away inches and form a firmer physique.
LipoLaser and Spa lines up a litany of services designed to match outer appearances with inner youthfulness. During the approximately 30-minute LipoLaser Treatment, spa technicians armed with a Lapex 2000 LipoLaser attempt to tighten hard to trim spots—such as the love handles, tummy bulge, saddlebags, and flabby eye sockets—by shrinking and flushing out fat cells. The machine fires photons at adipose fat cells, releasing their triglyceride contents (water, glycerol and fatty acids) into the bloodstream to be disposed of or used for fuel during mall-walking marathons. The process does not require local or general anesthesia, is virtually painless, and has minimal side effects, except the risk of angering pets with the loss of lap square footage. This Groupon is valid for a single treatment, and though results may show up instantly, a course of eight treatments is recommended to lose the greatest amount of abdominal inches.
G60fit builds a bridge between two worlds: the gym and the ocean. Their Surfset classes tone muscles with all the tools of a pro surfer, except for the waves. Students stand atop a teetering board to perform swimming motions, stretches, and bodyweight exercises, strengthening their core as they try to stay balanced and simultaneously flirt with an invisible lifeguard. There are also Surfset lessons for kids, which act as a virtual surf outing and an entertaining workout.
Aside from Surfset, G60fit offers 35-minute boot-camp classes. These center on a rotating theme, from kettlebells to kickboxing, and meet at a variety of times throughout the day to accommodate busy schedules. Though certified personal trainers and nutritionists are also on staff to develop individualized programs, the sense of community found in these classes is one of the gym's strongest motivational factors. A signature mix of teamwork and playful competition keep guests determined to complete single reps, as well as entire 60-day challenges.
The physicians and staff at California Medical Weight Loss understand that weight issues are medical issues and treat them as such, combining weight-loss plans with FDA-approved appetite suppressants. They help clients lose up to a pound a day through sound diets and suppressants such as phentermine and diethylpropion, which stimulate the central nervous system to decrease appetite, as well as injections of vitamin B12, which amps up the metabolism.
You might think Dr. Diana Nguyen was a relationship counselor, given her ability to foster harmony between patients and their mirrors. At Better Aesthetics MedSpa, she uses her expertise as a board-certified physician and experience with anti-aging treatments to change how patients feel about themselves.

The med spa's reception area boasts a clean, modern vibe with hardwood floors, white, Roman-style columns, and a white statue reminiscent of Aphrodite, the ancient goddess of microdermabrasion.
