Dr. John Kahen studied at UCLA and Ross University School of Medicine, where he learned the surgical and medical techniques he now uses to treat male pattern baldness. To suit individual needs, the team employs varied methodologies, such as follicular unit extraction, which transplants one unique snowflake of hair at a time, or hair-transplant surgery, which subtly relocates large swaths of hair. Medical hair-loss therapy impedes the conversion of testosterone to DHT, the hormone that causes male pattern baldness. Kahen and company treat both men and women, and their services can apply either to the scalp or to other body areas.
House of Blues Sunset Strip has hosted performances by legendary artists, among them Tupac Shakur and Prince. But the confines of the famed venue are just as remarkable, decorated with artwork by Alan Sainte James Boudrot and weathered tin. That tin was taken from a gin mill in the Delta—mere feet from the spot where Robert Johnson is said to have traded his soul to the devil for otherworldly guitar-playing skills and a pick signed “Beelzebub.” And in keeping with House of Blues tradition, the Sunset Strip location keeps a box of Mississippi mud beneath its stage and showcases the “Crazy Quilt” on its wall.

Time travel might not be possible at Rejuvenate Medical Spa, but the center?s highly trained master injectors are capable of the next best thing: concealing the cosmetic ravages of aging. Overseen by Dr. Bijan Farah, a medical director with board certification in internal and emergency medicine, the staff strives to improve skin tone and texture across the entire body with an arsenal of aesthetic technology. Sciton BBL, Sciton Profile, and Asclepion Mediostar Next systems emit light energy to remedy a number of epidermal concerns, including hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and unwanted stubble. For a slimming approach, the staff contour everything from limbs to waistlines using radio-frequency energy and advanced Cryolipolysis. When coupled with microdermabrasion treatments or injectable dermal fillers, basic facials and chemical peels can help restore a youthful glow to skin without having to duct tape night lights to foreheads.
To Samson Hair Restoration's physicians, hair restoration is equal measures of art and science. Although some surgeons concern themselves with follicle count and price per graft, the Samson team takes a collaborative, results-based approach, starting cases with artistic renderings of ideal scalps to give patients a clear idea of their post-op cranial canopy or what they would look like with fettuccini for hair. Staffers draw on the Quadrian hairline technique—which focuses on the front hairline to create a natural-looking coif—and plastic-surgery tricks to help to minimize donor-area scarring.
