Hollywood is obsessed with youth and beauty, which is why Whistler's Mother never wins Best Picture. Cultivate an Oscar-worthy exterior with today’s Groupon: for $599, you get four Exilis laser-lipo body-contouring treatments at MDS Medical Spa in Woodland Hills (a $1,600 value). Each treatment targets an area of approximately six square inches.
The staff at MDS Medical Spa works to reshape faces and other parts of the body with noninvasive aesthetic laser treatments. Wielding BTL's Exilis laser-lipo device, technicians target the body's fat deposits and the mind’s daydreams of Twinkies in 30- to 45-minute sessions that can yield visible results lasting from six months up to two years. Lauded by the media, the Exilis laser delivers thermal energy to tissue at a precisely controlled depth, employing a digital thermometer, a cooling system, and softly played Vanilla Ice remixes to minimize discomfort. Experts typically recommend four to six treatments on each facial or body area of approximately 6 square inches, rendered at 10- to 14-day intervals.
MDS Medical Spa & Laser Center
Dr. Goldring at MDS Medical Spa & Laser Center aims to restore youthful vigor to veneers with medical injections, including Botox, Juvéderm, 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 Juvéderm 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.
