The trained staff of Wilshire Center for Dermatology wrangles laser beams, intense lights, and injectables to shape clients' bodies without surgery.

Dr. Goldring at MDS Medical Spa & Laser Center aims to restore youthful vigor to veneers with medical injections, including Botox, Juv?derm, and Restylane treatments, as well as medical peels and IPL photofacials. The photofacials stimulate visages with laser light energy and aim to banish such pigmented blemishes as acne scars, sun damage, and rosacea. Treatments can take 30?45 minutes, with each laser pulse creating the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin while a sci-fi foley artist provides sound effects. During each Botox session, targeted areas receive an injection of purified protein, which relaxes muscles and smoothes skin that has become furrowed from age or frequent super-soaker duels. Alternatively, Restylane injections achieve similar results with a hyaluronic-acid elixir, and Juv?derm injections fill wrinkled areas around the mouth and nose. Prior to treatment, patients meander past lush outdoor greenery as they pass through the spa's thick wooden doors and into the waiting room, where a sleek reception desk and supple leather chairs keep waiting patrons comfortable. On the walls, bottled body serums add splashes of color to brushed-metal shelves as gleaming frames display feature articles about the spa and lovelorn dating columns written by recently abandoned wrinkles.
