When its icy beauty isn't adding a tony touch to episodes of CSI, Blue Medi Spa spruces up the pages of publications from Allure to the Wall Street Journal. Blue's medical director, Dr. Daniel Yamini, has appeared on Entertainment Tonight and Dr. 90210.
Dr. Yamini's expertise stems from double board certification in plastic and general surgery, and he has performed more than 5,000 procedures during his career. He oversees Blue's nonsurgical services, which range from laser and body-contouring treatments to injectables and clinical facials that work better than taping prescription pads over the face.
As Dr. Yamini and his aestheticians tend to bodies, the spa's aquamarine light filters through translucent panels and reflects off of tiling. Stretched fabric and hanging shapes evoke the mobiles of Alexander Calder as space dividers create the feel of an art gallery on Pluto.
Since opening its doors in 2006, LaserAway has accumulated over 25 locations throughout California, Arizona, Nevada, and New York, and even earned a spot on an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians. And there's a good reason for all the publicity: the clinic's multiple state-of-the-art laser treatments can comfortably and efficiently do anything from treat signs of sun damage to remove tattoos and unwanted body hair.
The fully-licensed medical professionals here don't spend all their time beautifying skin and entertaining stray cats with high-tech laser technology, though. They also flatten out wrinkles with targeted doses of Botox and Juvaderm, work to erase Father Time's fingerprints with radio-frequency-based Thermage treatments, and help to expunge stubborn fat deposits and reduce cellulite with Velashape treatments. And no matter the treatment, these friendly technicians are always happy to explain the intricacies of skincare.
Dr. Tajav Toomari oversees a team of registered nurses who remove unwanted hair, spider veins, and tattoos during treatments personalized to their patients’ needs. The skilled staff uses the PicoWay laser to remove tattoos efficiently for any skin type or tattoo color. Alternatively, they use the Candela GentleMax Pro laser to remove unwanted hair or veins on skin of all types, including darker skin tones and dragon scales. Before a treatment session, the staff offer complimentary consultations with skin and hair analysis to determine the best course of treatment for each client. They then perform FDA-approved treatments that destroy the follicle or vessel without harming the surrounding tissue.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
Dr. Saul Lahijani draws upon extensive experience and education as he works to help clients achieve their aesthetic dreams. He began his education at USC, where he earned his undergraduate degree before obtaining a doctorate of medicine at Ross University School of Medicine, finishing at the top of his class. He next performed several residencies at Yale and Vanderbilt, before staying an international fellowship in Barcelona. Today, he welcomes patients into his clinic for non-invasive and surgical treatments, wielding lasers and scalpels to sculpt bodies with the precision of a bionic Michelangelo.
