Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 17, 2014

A July 13, 2014 article in the Washington Post titled “Washington’s Secret to Staying Relevant: A Little Botox here, a Tuck There” states that the worst kept secret in Washington D.C. is that the glowing, youthful faces of its politicians are not the result of a few days off but of Botox, dermal filler injections, and plastic surgery. According to the article, the most common issues politicians want to address are the non-verbal cues that stem from aging faces. Specifically weak jaw lines, drooping eyebrows, and corners of the mouth that turn downward. (see:

“I have to object to the article’s characterization of the aesthetic of cosmetic treatments in Los Angeles,” says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “Enormous breasts have been out of style for years. And, though I may have been ahead of others in this regard, no one is interested in having their face appear paralyzed. I specialize in providing our clients with natural-looking results. ”

According to the article, the Washington D.C. aesthetic is minimalist, with most patients opting first for minimally invasive treatments rather than traditional plastic surgery. Minimally invasive treatments include Botox, dermal filler injections, and laser skin resurfacing. These treatments add volume and address fine lines and wrinkles.

“The concerns of our Beverly Hills clientele are the same as those discussed in the article and so are the treatments of choice,” says Dr. Ourian. “Our clients don’t want to look ‘done,’ they want to look younger and fresher.”

Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse, Sculptra and CoolSculpting. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others.
