Dermatology and Laser Medical Center's Alex Khadavi knows so much about skincare, he's a go-to expert for both celebrities and day-to-day patients. The board-certified dermatologist and industry innovator founded Advanced Skin and Hair, a company that uses years of clinical research to develop products for hair loss, acne, and signs of aging. Using his expertise in the area of blemish abolishment, Dr. Khadavi helped a friend of Tori Spelling get rid of acne before her big day on an episode of the Oxygen network's Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Weddings. He used his Clearogen protocol to assist a self-conscious teen with her severe acne on an episode of The Tyra Show, and appeared on Extra to promote his natural Revivogen formula, which is designed to reverse hair loss caused by genetics or sandpaper pillowcases.
Dr. Khadavi is also the center's chief cosmetic surgeon and specializes in medical procedures, such as Mohs micrographic surgery for skin cancer. He's written numerous magazine articles on cosmetic treatments, and is a national trainer for Botox, Juv?derm, Restylane, and advanced laser treatments.

She also performs liposuction and liposculpture, but is known just as well for her pleasant bedside manner.
Featured in numerous television shows and magazines, Dr. Mark Youssef helms Younique’s squad of aesthetic enhancers, who impart pulchritude via a variety of beautifying services. Younique’s laser hair-removal treatments are noninvasive procedures that stem the follicular tide of unwanted hair via amplified light pumped out by the practice’s lightsheer laser system. Clients may see results within two to three weeks of the first treatment, followed by a gradual, long-term reduction in hair after several sessions. Once the skin surface has been smoothed with the precision plucking of Younique’s laser, bodies glow in glabrous bliss, ready to blend in with the sleek, shiny exteriors of our future robot overlords.
A published scholar and featured guest on The Doctors, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian invokes extensive education and the latest technology to safely and effectively remove hair from every skin type. In a quick, noninvasive procedure, a specialized laser is used to rapidly heat and burn away each offending follicle before a soothing spray helps to keep the surrounding skin cool and comfortable, avoiding the lengthy phone calls and love notes of hair separation anxiety. After a series of treatments, bristles become weaker, finer, and often disappear, allowing fuzz-free faces and physiques to enjoy the open air without camouflaging unwanted hair beneath fur coats or Santa beards.
