Skin & Other Procedures
BOTOX® Cosmetic and Myobloc®
These non-surgical approaches to treating the aging face have become very popular in recent years. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Myobloc® are injectable medications that reduce or eliminate laugh lines and frown lines by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles for three to six months. Contact us for more information about these injectables.
Fat and Collagen Injections
Fat and collagen injections can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging. The injections fill out deep wrinkles and help improve the overall texture of the skin. The drawback to fat and collagen injections is that their positive effects on the skin do not last very long. However, injections can be repeated as necessary.
One alternative to collagen and fat injections is Restylane® treatments. Restylane® is an injectable gel that can help eliminate the appearance of wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It is made from a substance called hyaluronic acid, which is a natural part of human skin. While the positive effects of fat and collagen injections may last only a short time, the effects of Restylane® usually last for about six months. Restylane® treatments can be repeated as necessary.
Removing Spider Veins
Sclerotherapy is the method we use to remove unsightly spider veins. A solution is injected into leg veins to help shrink the size and appearance of enlarged or spider veins. Sometimes more than one treatment is needed.
This treatment can help skin maintain a healthy, youthful glow. During the treatment, tiny crystals are sprayed across the skin to resurface the outer layer, resulting in a smoother texture. The process also improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps reduce acne and acne scars, and evens the skin pigment.
This treatment can be given in a series to improve fine lines, wrinkles, and pigment imperfections. Usually, the treatment involves glycolic or salicylic acid, though stronger acids can be used for deeper lines and wrinkles.
Laser resurfacing can often improve skin by minimizing the appearance of facial wrinkles and imperfections. However, for many Asian patients, lasers can cause skin discoloration. Therefore, we are very careful when we use laser treatment on an Asian patient. The Icon laser is our preferred choice for lasering because it is suitable for all skin types and ethnicities. When using a laser on an Asian patient, we also pay special attention to skin treatment before and after the procedure. Pretreatment with Retin A® and hydroquinone, a bleaching agent, helps to minimize the risk of skin discoloration.
With the Icon laser, we offer skin revitalization, skin renewal, scar removal, stretch mark treatment, laser hair removal, skin resurfacing, leg vein clearance, and laser tattoo removal.
ThermiTight is a painless micro-invasive procedure which usually takes less than one hour and has little or no downtime. A tiny probe is inserted under the skin. Radiofrequency energy is then applied directly to the target tissues causing immediate shrinkage. Results are immediate and improve over time.
ThermiVa is a painless, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure which uses a single-use hand piece and radio frequency to deliver gentle heat to the labia and inner vaginal region. It tightens the vagina; treats mild incontinence and vaginal dryness; and makes the skin softer, smoother, and firmer, noticeable to both you and your partner. It promotes new collagen and nerve regeneration and may improve orgasmic sensitivity.*
Treatment lasts 9 – 12 months, and with no anesthesia and no down time, it is truly a “lunchtime procedure.”
We are one of the first plastic surgery offices in Beverly Hills to offer this new procedure.
