Introducing a center soley devoted to Acne and Acne Scar removal

I was very fortunate to train with a brilliant physician and surgeon with the name of James Fulton, III, MD.

He was eccentric and aggressive but kind and caring. Among his accomplishments was the co-development of Retin A in the 1960 with Dr. Kligman. He also developed Benzamycin topical antibiotic solution for the treatment of acne. In the 1980s he had many acne clinics all over Los Angele and treated hundreds of young adults.

Since 1999 I have improved on Dr. Fulton’s approach to acne and acne scarring. New laser and radiofrequency devices have make acne scarring treatments safer and more affordable.

Please visit our Acne Scarring page under the procedures and schedule a time to visit us at

Los Angeles Acne Center.

You can also e mail me for a complimentary copy of our Acne Book.

Thermi RF procedure for the tightening of neck

I performe cutting face and neck lifts but most of my patients prefer a minimally invasive approach and no scarring. Laser liposuction with Smartlipo Triplex has been a good alternative to surgery for some of my patients.

More recently a new device called ThermiRF is gaining acceptance in the US. This FDA approved modality melts fat and tightens the skin from inside with 3 small scars that are smaller than the back of a pencil erasure. the scars are behind the ears and under the chin and barely visible.

Thermi uses a small probe and "injects" Radiofrequency energy under the skin resulting in a tightening and elevation of the neck and jowls. The same technology can be used in the breasts, buttocks and abdominal skin..

Call us and schedule a consultation to see if you are a candidate for this virtually scar-less neck lift.

Thermi Breast and Body lift

I performed many breast lifts during my Cosmetic Surgery fellowship in 1999. I never liked the scars. Some patients did great and had barely visible scars. Most of my patients had visible scars that made them self-conscious about their appearance. Occasionally the scars would become hypertrophic or even keloidal. I stopped doing breast lifts shortly after.

Recently I became very impressed with a new procedure called Thermi RF.

Thermi uses a small probe and injects Radiofrequency energy under the skin resulting in a tightening and elevation of the breast. The same technology can be used in the buttocks and abdominal skin.

Please watch this video by another surgeon back east. I hope to produce our own video this year.

Call us and schedule a consultation to see if you are a candidate for this virtually scar-less breast lift.

Men are asking: Is Kybella worth it? Is it right for me?

Kybella for the treatment of excess fat under the chin and neck is becoming more and more popular.

The fact is that men in 2016 have several options to improve their jawline and contour their neck. In fact, 73 percent of people say they don’t like the extra fat under their chin and neck, according to a survey by the American Society of Dermatological Surgery found.

Here are the surgical and non-surgical options:

Smartlipo Triplex uses 3 different wavelengths and a laser to gently remove excess fat and tighten the skin from within. This procedure is invasive but can be performed under local anesthesia and leaves practically no scarring. Downtime is 3-5 days and cost varies between $2500-$5000

Some patients are against anything invasive. We also offer them a combination treatment with kybella and Ultherapy.

Kybella gradually melts excess neck fat over a few weeks and may even results in a little tightening of the skin. Subsequently any residual loose skin is tightened with either Ultherapy, Pelleve, Venus Viva, or Thermage CPT.

All these devices are offered at Forever Young Inc. and performed under light sedation for maximum efficacy and minimum pain and downtime.

Kybella treatments have 2-3 days of down time and cost $750-$1500

Ultherapy of face, neck, eyes performed by Dr. David Rahimi is $3500

We offer packages and free 6 month care credit financing

Please visit out website for more information and “before and after” photographs



Thank you

Eclipse PRP for the treatment of Acne Scarring

One of the most important lessons I have learned after treating Acne and Acne scarring over the past 20 years is as follows:

No single treatment works for everyone.

Acne has many causes including hormonal, bacterial and genetic components.

Acne scars also come in a variety of form and shapes: icepick, box-car (a misnomer), atrophic, rolling are just a few examples.

My approach has always been to reduce or cure acne and attack the scars using a variety of treatment modalities.

My center offer 30 variety of laser, light sources, ultrasound, and radiofrequency devices to improve acne scarring.

I also use PRP is conjunction with Subcision for deeper rolling and box-car scars.

I am sure why it works; but it does.

Deep fibrous bands are cut using a sharp small blade and the resulting ‘dead space” is filled with either a filler (Bellafill, Sculptra, Juvederm, Radiesse) or with one’s own platelets and stem cell (PRP).

Please e mail me and I will send you a free PDF copy of my book on Acne and Acne scarring.

I am getting exceptional results with 0.1% and .05% Asclera injection for varicose veins and small blood vessels on lower legs and body.

The key is to be meticulous and find the feeder blood vessels.

The treatment is performed by me covers both legs; front and back.

The cost is $500

Please schedule a complementary consultation to see if you are a good candidate for Asclera leg vein treatment

Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins on your legs. It is administered by a healthcare provider to treat two types of veins:

  • Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter)
  • Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) known as reticular veins

Asclera® has not been studied in varicose veins more than 3 mm in diameter.
