About Us

We take great pride in our work, and we are committed to providing the highest level of service and integrity to our clients, specifically in the areas of:

  1. Educating our clients about skin health and esthetic procedures.
  2. Continuing research into the latest international skin science and advanced skin care products.
  3. Personalized treatments. Rather than give you a “menu” of options, we take time to go through your personal health history, genetic background, and lifestyle… in order to properly diagnose your skin.
  4. Expertise. When it comes to your skin, we insist that you only work with the best of the best.  If it’s an area we don’t specialize in, we’ll refer you to an expert.

Mariam Ajdari, L.P.E.

Mariam Ajdari is well-known in the international skin care community for being a pioneering researcher in skin science.

For nearly twenty years, she has been on the forefront of medical research into skin disorders such as melasma and advanced treatments, including stem cell research.

In the late 80’s, she created the first concept of a “day spa” and started Le Visage in Brentwood and Santa Monica, CA, catering to upscale and celebrity clients.

She worked as an instructor for Labordor Esthederm (a French clinical skin care line), teaching and training estheticians.

Around 1992, the concept of “medical spas” emerged, and she began shadowing plastic surgeons and dermatologists, ultimately changing the course of her practice from a day spa into more clinical/medical treatment. During this time, she created the concept of the Skin Care Clinic, and moved her practice to Westlake Village, CA.

In 2007, she received a special invitation from L’Oreal Paris to visit their research laboratory and get a first-hand update on their cutting-edge technology in Paris, France. Since then, her focus has been on diagnostic skin care, with a concentration on corrective treatment in the fields of anti-aging, acne, melasma, and oncology.

Mariam is a UCLA graduate, and she is a member of multiple medical societies.

Laura Stern

Laura Stern has 15 years experience performing medical-grade manicures and pedicures.

This process is quite different from a traditional salon manicure or pedicure.  The “closed loop” system is designed for better hygiene and to help prevent cross-contamination of nail/foot fungus — a risk many are exposed to at most nail salons.

Laura incorporates a sea salt foot bath and aromatherapy into her mani/pedi service for an experience you will never forget!

Coming soon!  We’ll be adding more info about the rest of our team at the Skin Care Clinic.
