Read the following sections for information about some of our treatment options for looking and feeling your best:

Skin Rejuvenation

Fractional skin resurfacing is afforded by the Palomar Starlux system. With minimal side effects that are no more bothersome than a mild sunburn, this laser refines texture, reverses sun damage, reduces melasma and restores your skin to a youthful glow. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, scars from acne, surgical procedures or accidents are smoothed and diminished.

A full spectrum attack on acne is possible through the FDA-approved Lux V Acne laser, powerful PhotoDynamic therapy, chemical peels and a special selection of physician-strength skin care products.

Chemicals peels, both glycolic and TCA, have been successfully used for decades. Newer formulations, such as those provided through Neostrata, create very satisfying results from gentle-action treatments. From simple glycolic skin texture "glow" peels to full resurfacing High Potency peels, you can brighten skin tone, improve texture and smooth many surface irregularities.

TCA chemical peels have beautiful effect on facial wrinkles and pigmentation, and also have a near-miraculous effect on hard to treat areas like the hands and arms.


Those who are beginning to notice the effects of aging through skin laxity, early jowl development and crepe-paper skin texture will especially appreciate the skin tightening effects brought about by Thermage, the original radiofrequency system that has been touted as the "Non-Surgical Facelift."

Thermage has also developed special techniques to improve your skin in the eye area, tummy, arms, legs and even hands. Thermage ThermaTip CL for Cellulite introduces a single treatment choice in improving the appearance of cellulite. You'll want to ask Dr. Sedgh about these procedures.


BOTOX® Cosmetic is THE leading cosmetic procedure requested across the country. Your BOTOX treatment will wipe away deep frown and worry lines leaving your face as relaxed and youthful as it was years ago. Committed use of Botox helps minimize formation of new wrinkles in the treated area.

Have you tried a BOTOX® Cosmetic Brow Lift? No surgery – just a simple injection procedure and for several months many patients are able to enjoy some of the benefits that in the past were possible only with surgery.

Wrinkle and line fillers have made huge leaps in versatility and longevity. Juvederm injectable gel is fast becoming the most popular fine line wrinkle filler and lip plumping product on the market today. Smooth and natural-feeling with lasting results up to a full year! Instant results with minimal to no post-injection swelling.

Sister products Restylane and Perlane handle mid to moderate wrinkles, lines and facial folds, with Sculptra offering unique volume restoration to correct age-related facial fat and bone loss. The anti-aging effect of dermal fillers – often combined with the use of BOTOX – can make very visible differences in your appearance.

Radiesse as a long-term dermal filler has many applications. Perfected for the correction of deep nasolabial folds between the nose and the mouth corners, Radiesse can finesse the appearance of a nose that is less than straight or less than smooth with a single visit. Loss of volume affects hand "age" as much as the face. Aging hands are made instantly more youthful looking with Radiesse and adjunctive pigment removal and/or tissue tightening.

Lasers and Light Treatments

Bothered by spider veins or varicose veins? IPL Photofacial gently tackles pesky tiny facial veins. Flashing light is all it takes to reduce the redness of rosacea.

Permanent hair reduction with the StarLux system is accomplished quickly with increased comfort. The innovative contact cooling means surface skin is constantly protected from heat buildup.

Health Programs

Internal physical health is important in how you feel. Although cosmetic services will dramatically improve your looks, there are equally important functions going on inside. Medical Weight Loss* is an effective way to begin a weight control program. Appetite suppressants, fat burners and vitamin supplementation helps anyone get a fast start on losing excess weight.

Another body health issue is that of imbalanced hormone production. Bio Identical Hormone Therapy will make major changes in how your body functions.

With options for men and women, hormone therapy can help you regain healthy sleep patterns, improve mood, sexual function and desire, improve cholesterol levels – the list of positive improvements is vast.

Testing is simple and natural hormone supplementation is safe. Unlike synthetic hormones, bio identical hormones are gentle and don't "shock" your system with chemical replacements.

During your office consultation you will be provided with a detailed plan of the treatments that will benefit you most. Initial cosmetic consultations are complimentary. Call Beverly Hills Laser Institute, Inc. at 888-333-2515 to start planning your treatment with Dr. Sedgh.
