With 18 years of skin-clarifying experience, The Kopelson Clinic's head aesthetician Elizabeth Carranza expertly pampers visages with relaxing facials. One-hour anti-aging treatments start with a thorough cleansing to remove residue from makeup and mustaches before a relaxing massage soothes facial muscles. Faces are then bedecked with nutrient-imbuing serums and hydrating moisturizers rubbed gingerly across cheeks, jaws, and foreheads to grant them a vibrant glow.
A go-to clinical health and beauty expert who has appeared on such television programs as The Dr. Oz Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show, Dr. Susan Evans is known for being a skincare expert to the stars. The Harvard-trained dermatologist has shared her extensive knowledge alongside her husband—plastic surgeon Brian Evans—on the reality show Dr. 90210, via media such as WebMD, and in numerous well-known magazines, including Essence.
Though Dr. Evans leads a high-profile lifestyle, she is also known for her compassionate, down-to-earth personality. She has used surgical and nonsurgical methods to treat patients from across the country suffering from extensive pigmentation issues, acne, and scarring. Dr. Evans cofounded The Skin Deformities and Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides restorative plastic surgery to disadvantaged children and adults.
At her health and beauty institute, Dr. Evans offers the latest aesthetic and anti-aging procedures, including dermal fillers that diminish wrinkles and laser treatments that target hair, spider veins, or jungle vines that have taken up residence on one leg. The caring doctor has collaborated with Guthy-Renker—the makers of Proactiv—to create her own medical-grade skincare line to further promote healing and self-confidence.
In his career as a Beverly Hills cosmetic physician, Dr. Robert Nettles weaves together his medical, artistic, and inventive talents to bring his patients solutions for their cosmetic issues. His innovations in cosmetic derma surgery include the Nettles method of hair transplants and nonsurgical rhinoplasty that offers nose reshaping without costly hospital stays or fad nose diets. Adopting an empathetic demeanor, the renowned doctor allays patient concerns during pretreatment consultations that match each person's beauty goals with the right treatment. Nettles Non-Surgical Beauty—as well as the doctor's numerous contributions to the field of medical cosmetics—has also been praised on an array of major media outlets that include the Bravo and Fox networks and the Los Angeles Times.
The dermatologists, physician assistants, and nurses at American Dermatology Centers are well versed in all dermatological matters, specializing in both cosmetic and medical skin problems. The center's aesthetic arsenal includes V-Beam, GentleLase, SmoothBeam and Q-Yag lasers that are each calibrated to nix blemishes and acne, erase spider veins and scars, and even whisk away unwanted hair and tattoos. The center also treats faces with cosmetic fillers such as wrinkle-reducing Botox, Dysport, and Restylane. More serious epidermal issues are referred to the center’s dermatologists, who are trained in the diagnosis and treatment of all disorders of the skin, hair and nails including acne, cysts, allergic reactions, skin cancer and melanoma.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
Many people may have misgivings about turning to cosmetic injectables such as Botox and Dysport, and no one understands those hesitations better than Dr. Sherly M. Soleiman, MD. Dr. Soleiman is a board-certified physician who has worked in urgent care facilities and family practices, but some years ago, she decided to expand her expertise into the field of cosmetic injectables after she suffered from a poorly-administered injection herself. "I had the medical skills and coordination in my hands to do better," she told Ventura Boulevard magazine.
Today, Dr. Soleiman continues to attend regular lectures and courses that allow her to deliver cosmetic injections as safely and efficiently as possible; in the past, she has even taken sculpting classes to enhance her understanding of facial symmetry. To help fight the aging process, she might recommend Botox, Dysport, or Juvederm injections, which help smooth wrinkles and diminish other signs of age, such as facial lines or a tattoo of Charlie Chaplin's autograph. And, in further pursuit of beauty and youth, she also utilizes the Obagi Skin Care System and can proscribe the lash-growing treatment Latisse.
