Kate Somerville's beauty is a testament of what she has to offer.
Tucked away in the quiet, trendy west end of Melrose Place, I discovered Hollywood's best kept secret for skin care and rejuvination. The story began over 15 years ago when Kate Somerville opened up skin care clinics in conjunction with plastic surgeons when it was a completely novel concept. Shortly after getting properly licensed, Kate pioneered medical skin clinics for VIP's such as Dr. Hoefflin and Dr. Ryan of Beverly Hills. Kate also consulted with other top surgeons and dermatologists to maximize her aptitude as well as constantly increasing knowledge base. While consulting had its own rewards, Kate missed the 'hands on' aspect of working with clients and the fulfillment she received in caring for their skin herself.
By the summer of 2004, Kate opened her own place since she knew exactly what she wanted and determined to achieve her well conceived goals. Nothing less than the most advanced clinical skincare wrapped in a calming, hospitable package would do, to her client's delight. Kate's focus has always been outcome oriented, but she was well aware a great deal more was needed.

Kate, as effectively as always, created a flawlessly comfy setting which suited her personality perfectly, relaxes her clients and caters to their hectic, demanding lives. Kate's mission, then as now, is expert quality skincare along with results-oriented treatments in a comfortable, friendly environment. Top knotch skin care, health and maintenance have remained top goals right from the start. To this day, she has maintained her high level of expertise and standards as the founder of Kate Somerville Skin Health Experts, her medi-skin clinic in Los Angeles.
Her achievements are numerous, including the creation of the Kate Somerville signature line of skincare products. Dedicated to helping individuals of all skin types obtain healthy skin, Kate is a trailblazer in Clinical Skincare and Product Development. Her unwavering commitment to delivering the best possible results, using quality ingredients and cutting edge technology in her services and treatments, means Kate sometimes has to create them herself!

Both she and her products are adored by Hollywood's elite, including Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Alba, Annette Benning, Kirstin Dunst and more.

While other places may move the clients in and out very quickly, the opposite is true at Skin Health Experts. Kate's clients enjoy an unrushed, informative consultation to properly determine what the optimum result can be and how best to attain it. It is the same with the the treatments. No one gets rushed in and out of Kate Somerville. They are very generous with time and attention. After all, as delicate, irreplaceable and unique as skin is, it deserves no less.

Kate has also applied her expertise and offers the latest in technological advancements to beautify her clients. Those wanting to look their very best no longer need to go under the knife for a facelift. Modern technology can now provide the benefits of traditional plastic surgery without the pain, down time or high cost. The Titan method does it much more effectively, conveniently and inexpensively. A newcomer in the laser skin resurfacing field, the Titan skin tightening procedure is commonly referred to as a non-surgical face lift. The Titan Laser works in two ways. It uses an infrared-light instrument to stimulate and restore collagen. First, it causes the weaker collagen to instantly tighten and solidify. Then in the following months, it triggers the skin to produce new collagen.

With the Titan procedure, some results may be seen instantly without any of the regular facelift pain or bruising. Approximately one third of patients see immediate improvement. Plus the skin keeps improving due to its collagen stimulation so the effects are apparent months later. New collagen is created over 3 to 6 months. Keep in mind that the Titan works on much more than just the face plus while keeping surgery as a later option if still desired at all. There are many areas the Titan procedure can be used to combat wrinkles or sagging. Most commonly treated areas are the forehead, cheeks, jowl, and neck. But it also works on the stomach, thighs, and arms. Even previously extremely difficult parts to treat such as elbows and knees now benefit where older methods simply failed to effectively work. It is also an excellent way to tighten up and give a youthful appearance to the abdomen after childbirth. So, how does the Titan anti-aging magic wand work? Simply, it is a safe infrared light focused on the desired area. The collagen is stimulated below the skin's surface, and immediately contracts. A mild pain reliever can be taken prior to the procedure, but most people only feel a brief heating sensation with each Titan pulse.
