Rejuvenate Your Skin 

Mila Morgan is one of Beverly Hills best kept beauty secrets accepting clients (including several A-listers) mostly through word-of-mouth. She has spent the past seven years mastering the art of Microcurrent — a Nobel Prize-winning, FDA-approved, and clinically-proven therapy for anti-aging. Working from the inside out, Microcurrent stimulates the production and storage of collagen and elastin so your body starts reversing the signs aging, naturally.

Using wands to stimulate the skin with electrical current, Mila’s facelift is non-invasive while having a positive effect on your wellbeing. It sounds too good to be true but the results are a reduction in wrinkles for a younger, fresher looking you.

She offers one-off treatments, perfect for a quick pick-me-up in time for the holiday season as well as an eight-session package for the full facelift effect.

Reboot Your Smile

As the daughter of a dentist, I think about teeth all the time! Your mouth is a key focal point not just in photos but in every personal interaction you have. There are lots of teeth whitening options out there, including at-home-kits, but truth is you get what you pay for so it’s worth investing in a trusted professional to brighten up your smile.

Dr. David Frey has been creating smiles in Beverly Hills and London for over  27 years, specializes in cosmetic and restorative dental care and is the author of Smile 360. His signature Smile Makeover is requested by patients, musicians and actors, and he has been called the “Picasso” of dentistry.  A perfect smile is also one of the most requested procedures for Millennials like Zendaya.  The obsession with selfies has crossed over all platforms from fashion to entertainment and now into the dentist chair with patients requesting the most perfect smile for their photos.
