HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Some say that timing is everything, others say it's location.  Seems Metropolitan Medical Care has both in its favor.  With its June 2010 launch as the very first medical spa to open in the revitalized city of Hollywood, California, MMC specializes in the same kind of hormone therapy featured in the Suzanne Somers' book, BREAKTHROUGH -- which had a surprise supporting role in this month's feature film, SEX AND THE CITY 2. www.metromedicalcare.com

Metropolitan Medical Care -- established by the award-winning Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center (www.hollywoodpresbyterian.com) -- is under the direction of acclaimed expert on Anti-Aging and Hormone Replacement therapy, Alex Martin MD, who is listed as a doctor resource and HGH expert in both of the latest books, BREAKTHROUGH, 8 Steps to Wellness and KNOCKOUT by notable author and actress, Suzanne Somers (www.suzannesomers.com). Residents of the fabled neighborhood along the Walk of Fame now have the opportunity to benefit from the latest skincare and anti-aging technologies once only available in the most prestigious clinics and spas in Europe.  

Dr. Martin -- a physician and skin surgeon -- graduated from USC Medical School and is also an alumnus of Cedar Sinai Hospital's graduate program. He is certified in Anti-Aging and has had an established practice in Orange County for the past 20 years where he was chief of staff of Whittier Hospital and Medical Director of two large medical groups. He was brought to Hollywood from Newport Beach to open a clinic in the heart of the city by the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center.

"We represent the future," explains Dr. Martin.  "Consumers know that science and technology constantly develop new and sophisticated ways to combat aging.  Our purpose is to work closely with our patients to create a smart plan for staying ahead of the curve and enjoying long, healthy and dynamic lives."

The array of services offered at Metropolitan Medical is a reflection of Dr. Martin's expertise coupled with the services of noted Nevada plastic surgeon, Mervin Low M.D. and Peter Fodor M.D., who has established practices in Los Angeles and Orange County.  Future plans including adding more skincare experts to the MMC roster.  

The Center's offerings include the very latest options for:  

  • Human Growth Hormone & Testosterone Replacement
  • Bioidentical Hormone Replacement (as featured in the new film SEX AND THE CITY  2)
  • HCG Weight Loss Programs
  • Liposuction – with Vaser ultrasound to promote healing
  • Tummy Tucks
  • Breast Augmentation/Reconstruction
  • Scar Revision
  • Fractional C02 Laser Resurfacing
  • Martin Lift™ - thread lift
  • Laser Hair Removal and the new painless thermo-electrolysis
  • Injectables such as Botox/Dysport and all fillers
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Lumage, the targeted hyperpigmentation peel
  • Facials
  • Preston Martin skincare line
  • Concierge Primary Care

With inspiration coming from childhood friend, Stanley Marcus, the founder of Neiman Marcus and his book "Quest for the Best" philosophy, Dr. Martin says his mission is to offer an all inclusive anti-aging clinic of excellence on every level.  He isn't concerned about any questions that may arise from offering services that may be controversial in some circles as long they are safe and they work.  

"For instance, hormone replacement therapy is often misunderstood," he continues. "Just because athletes are prohibited from having a competitive advantage by taking HGH, doesn't mean that the rest of us don't want our everyday performance enhanced by a safe, smart supplement.  In fact, 5 out of 9 doctors we worked with at an Orange County Cancer Center are on HGH."  

Dr. Martin has already developed his own line of cosmeceutical skincare products and is focusing next on stem cell treatments and nanotech designer molecules that zero in on areas of the body that need repair.  

Located at 7080 Hollywood Blvd. in Suite 804, Metropolitan Medical Care combines highly skilled primary concierge medical care with full-service cosmetic surgery and hormone replacement services.  This elegant, new Anti-Aging Clinic offers personal care, education and support so patients can make the best decisions regarding their personal health and wellness.  For more information, visit www.metromedicalcare.com or call 800-477-8891.
