Dr. John Kim
Dr. John J. Kim

Dr. John J. Kim is a well-known name around Beverly Hills: this licensed acupuncturist is famous for inventing the ART Holistic Facelift, a non-invasive alternative for men and women who prefer to live a Botox-free life.

ART— Advanced Regeneration Therapy—is a natural method of rejuvenating sagging, wrinkled skin. Through Kim’s innovative technique, ART removes wrinkles, relieves facial muscle tension, brightens the complexion and improves collagen production. This three-hour procedure requires little recovery and very few follow-up visits; it is natural and effective.

Kim, who wakes up at dawn to practice yoga, has always been a healer. He was born into a family of alternative medicine, as his father, too was an acupuncturist.  As a child, watching his father help people filled him with the passion to help others as well. In 1969, his family moved to the United States. After 10 years working as an engineer, Kim refused to fight his true calling, and enrolled in the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic and Emperors College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, California in 1995; he has been practicing ever since.
