After fulfilling his dream of becoming a Doctor of Medicine at Stanford University's School of Medicine in 2002, Duke T. Khuu, MD, F.A.A.D. dreamed again. This time, he would establish his own institution: a haven for patients to relish in his seemingly infinite dermatological knowledge. This dream, like all of Dr. Khuu's dreams, also came true. Today, Khuu Dermatology is a veritable haven for anyone suffering from dermal anomalies, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and unsightly veins. The board-certified dermatologist—alongside his team of registered nurses—immaculately execute a full repertoire of medical and cosmetic skincare procedures, from microdermabrasion facials to cancer screenings. Dr. Khuu also takes care to keep patients fully informed on treatment options, so each patient can achieve their time-reversing skin goals. In his spare time, Dr. Khuu likes to go figure skating.

There, highly trained aestheticians administer soothing facials and full-body waxes and ease tension with hot-stone and deep-tissue bodywork. The spa also offers an array of Lamprobe and microdermabrasion treatments to stave off acne and pesky spider veins.

Under the expert guidance of Dr. Thomas Munyon, the staff at Munyon Dermatology harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser 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 sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid deposits 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 does not require any recovery time.
