Under the expert guidance of Dr. Daniel Taheri, the staff at LA Laser and Skin Center harnesses laser-fat-removal technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can slink away. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time. Technicians perform the six treatments within 72 hours of one another over the span of two weeks, the exact length of time it takes a laser to cross a football field. Patients can boost results with healthy eating habits, daily exercise, regular hydration, and avoidance of caffeine and alcohol.
At Veinity, varicose veins shrink and dissipate, body hair vanishes, and cellulite surrenders its hold on hips and thighs. Aiming to solve these and other beauty concerns is the specialty of Dr. Peter G. Vajtai, who taps into more than 25 years of experience. His mission is to help beautify clients without pain, scarring, or need for anesthesia. That’s why, instead of surgery, he relies on lasers; they can be calibrated to target certain tissues and ignore others. Smart Lipo treatments, for instance, can emulsify fat cells without damaging the skin. Unwanted hair, rosacea, and spider veins can also evaporate without much collateral damage––which is what laser treatments are designed for.
But the board-certified vascular surgeon doesn’t work alone. Alongside Dr. Vajtai, Licensed Aesthetician Wendy Lewis smoothens wrinkles and resolves other beauty woes with training from the Mayo Clinic. She wields certifications in Botox, Juvederm, and medical-grade chemical peels and, like the good doctor, she draws from more than a quarter of a century of experience.
As a division of Valhalla Wellness and Medical Centers, Valhalla MedSpa puts an emphasis on medical-grade care with a team that includes a registered nurse and laser specialist. Instead of fighting sickness, this team works to roll back the clock and help clients reach their aesthetic goals. Specialists administer facials with scientifically formulated SkinCeuticals products and smooth wrinkles with Botox or fillers. Zerona laser treatments provide a quick fix for clients who want more pronounced curves, and custom weight-loss programs offer a more sustained approach to weight loss. The wellness centers also promote overall well-being with chiropractic care, internal medicine services, and massage therapy.
Board-certified dermatologists Robert B. Strimling and Lionel J. Handler call upon their mutual expertise in cosmetic and laser services to help patients maintain healthy and radiant exteriors. In additional to general dermatology treatments for acne, rosacea, and other topical blemishes, the doctors perform a multitude of laser-powered cosmetic treatments to rid skin of hair, varicose veins, and tattoos of relocated sports teams. The advanced dermatology center also restores façades to factory conditions with skin-renewing services such as chemical peels and FDA-approved injections of Botox and Dysport.
Employing paraben-free products, Just Face It Med Spa’s anti-aging experts wind back face clocks with medical-grade skin treatments customized for each client's needs and skin type. The micro-needling procedure helps treat skin peppered with stretch marks and acne scars, while Vi peels reduce acne scarring and jump-start collagen production without the hassle of hooking cheekbones up to alkaline batteries. In addition to the aesthetic innovations compiled by the owner, Martine Abbey, the spa contracts out space to expert practitioners for wax, wrap, and massage services to complement their suite of rejuvenating techniques.
At Quick Weight Loss and Skin Care, clinical aesthetician Audrey Armah revitalizes bodies and instills smoothness in ravaged pores. During skin procedures, clients relax as soft hands tend to façades, gently evicting dryness and glued-on Halloween masks with chemical peels and facials. Laser hair-removal sessions raze the body’s follicular forests with concentrated pulses of light. The clinic also offers private weight-loss programs, in which clients drop pounds while combining portion control and exercise techniques with personalized menus and meal plans.
