THE LIV HYDRATED TEAM
LIV: the premiere Costa Mesa med-spa where clients relax and recharge while receiving a variety of treatments to improve their quality of life, inside and out. Founded in 2014 by Dr. Christopher Salem, LIV began as an IV clinic, offering thoughtfully crafted infusions to boost energy, improve immune system functions, beautify skin, promote mental acuity, and more. Since LIV’s inception, the clinic has evolved into a comprehensive medical spa with a wide selection of treatments for medical weight loss, body sculpting, and aesthetic programs (Botox, fillers, laser facials & hair removal, and more), in addition to IV hydration therapy. Our treatments are administered in our tranquil clinic staffed by true professionals who provide personalized care to our clients.
