Board-certified cardiologist Dr. Ariel Soffer, a graduate of the prestigious Cedars Sinai/UCLA residency program, former chief of medicine of the Hollywood Medical Center, former doctor for the Florida Panthers, clinical assistant professor at Nova Southeastern University, and chief medical expert for WPLG ABC Local 10 News leads Soffer Health, which offers multiple practices and specialized departments. One such department is the Soffer Vein Institute, where a diverse menu of vein treatments helps female and male patients to achieve comely legs. Dr. Soffer is so proficient in laser treatments for varicose veins that he has trained dozens of physicians to use his endovenous laser-ablation techniques to heat varicose veins directly and cause them to seal and disappear more quickly than rabbits at a magicians? convention. Complimented by Dr. Oz as a world expert in veins, click here to watch his interview with Dr. Oz. He also uses traditional, ultrasound-guided, and foam-sclerotherapy treatments to eliminate unwanted varicose and spider veins.
The staff members at Doctors Best Wellness Center provide medical weight-loss solutions, aesthetic solutions, and functional medicine. Because they know the road to weight loss isn’t an easy one, a bariatric physician analyzes each patient’s case before prescribing a treatment plan, such as an individualized diet program or a gastric-banding system, and follows them every step of the way. Technicians are equally attentive during line-smoothing Botox injections, Reaction body-contouring sessions, and other aesthetic services. They also provide functional-medicine treatments, such as hormone and testosterone replacement and nutritional therapy.
Formerly a med spa, Soluna MD shifted gears in 2008 to focus more on the “med” aspect of the med spa, eschewing treatments whose job was only to pamper in favor of treatments that produced visible results, such as sclerotherapy, Botox, IPL facials, and chemical peels. But instead of letting its new medical services turn the office into a cold, clinical place, Soluna MD retained much of its med-spa comforts and ambiance. Patients relax atop padded massage beds during such treatments as SolunaSculpt SmartLipo Ultra, which permanently removes fat cells with a combination of ultrasound waves, lasers, and tiny incisions.
Before any treatment, patients can grab complimentary coffee and the occasional cake and cookies. They can also take advantage of consultations with cosmetic surgeon John W. Chang to learn more about Soluna MD's services or to discuss the advantages of adding a third ear to the elbow.
