Aging is an inevitable part of being human, like crying in response to seeing animals feed each other and hoping Mark McGwire returns to hit one last home run. Cover up the age indicators with today's Groupon: for $99, you get an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) rejuvenation treatment or a CoolTouch 3 Plus Laser Treatment (a $500 value) at Forever Young on Wilshire Boulevard in Westside.
Under the guidance of board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. David Rahimi, Forever Young's staff instills patients with youthfulness by way of laser technology. The IPL photo-rejuvenation treatment erases fine lines, milk-related rosacea, age spots, solar freckles, and distressed capillaries on select areas of the body. During each 30-minute procedure, an aesthetician smoothes cold gel over a desired area while pulses of light burrow into dermises via glass hand piece. Patients experience minimal discomfort and a one- to three-day recovery period. Blemishes and imperfections diminish for several months to several years, depending on the frequency of the treatments and how many sweaters the patient was wearing during the treatments.
Those harboring acne-related woes may opt for the 30-minute CoolTouch 3 Plus Laser Treatment, which naturally reboots collagen without scarring. Patients can comfortably lounge while the CoolTouch hand piece almost painlessly targets acne at its source, shrinking glands and reducing abilities to procreate problems. Natural collagen then ebbs over any impending acne scars, like waves washing away sand drawings that look exactly like acne scars, resulting in clearer skin and about one day of recovery time. Optimal results require repeated treatments.
- He has built his practice on the philosophy of optimal procedure and holistic patient care, rather than fad-of-the-moment procedures that do not deliver what they promise, or the outcome offers less than desire- able results, or proves a disaster for the patient. – Suzanne Takowsky, Beverly Hills Times
- I remember his explaining each step to me as the session proceeded and recall some sensation of heat during the Thermage phase, but I felt absolutely no significant discomfort. – johngoldfarb, Citysearch
Helmed by Dr. David Rahimi, a cosmetic surgeon and board-certified dermatologist, Forever Young focuses on maintaining beauty with minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Dr. Rahimi draws on experience with various skin types while smoothing out wrinkles around the eyes and brow with Botox or eyelid surgery. Tulip mini lifts dramatically reduce the downtime of standard face-lifts while maintaining a natural look, and surface-level chemical peels and microdermabrasion whisk away fine lines, discoloration, and political signs left on the face by mayoral candidates. In whole-body treatments, Forever Young eliminates unsightly veins with spider-vein therapy and trims away stubborn flab with lipolysis.
