What are dermal filler injections like Radiesse? | Los Angeles Med SpaRadiesse is one of the popular facial dermal filler injections to add volume to the depleted areas of the face and stimulate fresh collagen production. This FDA approved facial rejuvenation med spa procedure has calcium hydroxylapatite as its main ingredient. It is designed to produce natural looking and longer lasting results with a single in-office injection treatment.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the terrific and astute Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Radiesse and other dermal filler injections for facial rejuvenation.

The procedure is performed by skilled treatment providers in a customized manner to achieve targeted outcomes. Rejuvenate medical spa provides Radiesse injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities and neighborhoods in this part of The Golden State.

 

Calcium Hydroxylapatite

Synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is a biocompatible material, which has been in use in the field of medicine for over two decades. Microspheres of 25-45 microns diameter of this material are suspended in a gel for cohesive, sub-dermal injectable delivery. The FDA has approved Radiesse facial augmentation filler for long lasting correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.

Radiesse med spa filler may also be used to address facial fat loss occurring due to disease or other factors. Diverse facial regions can be injected to reduce or enhance specific facial features, such as glabellar lines, nasolabial folds, sub-dermal support of the brows, nose, tear troughs, lips, perioral region, oral commisures, marionette lines, and chin. It is also sometime used to mitigate the effect of saucerized acne scars.

Results with Radiesse injections will typically last for about 12 to 18 months, which is longer than many other popular dermal fillers. CaHA microspheres support extended longevity, biocompatibility and a low rate of side effects.

 

How does a CaHA filler work?

When CaHA is injected in the form of tiny microspheres, it acts as a scaffold that helps in the formation of new tissue similar to its surrounding environment. The deposited particles of CaHA inside the deep dermis support the production of new collagen and fibroblastic in-growth, without calcification. In that sense, CaHA mimics the environment into which it is deposited.

Once a Radiesse syringe is opened, the unused material after the first treatment can be recapped and retained for the same patient for up to three months for future administration. However, the provider should ensure that no visible air bubbles are formed inside the syringe to avoid future hardening of the material.

 

Results

Results will vary depending on the patient’s facial condition prior to the treatment and the amount of treatment performed. Patients should be informed that some facial aging signs will be mitigated but will not disappear. Patients seeking reduction of nasolabial folds, vertical glabellar lines and deep furrows can usually achieve the best results with Radiesse.

Radiesse is also a good solution to correct facial asymmetries, depending on the required volume. Some lesions such as acne scars can be improved with this filler. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Radiesse injections.

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Consultation | Los Angeles Med Spa | EncinoBotox ranks among the most sought after med spa non-surgical procedures in the US for individuals who want to reduce the effect of facial aging and restore a smoother, younger looking face.

While most patients have some familiarity with Botox, it is important for the treatment provider to educate the patient about its benefits and limitations in an objective manner and compare it with other treatment options that the patient may be considering.  

The patient should use the Botox consultation opportunity to ask questions and clarify their concerns and doubts about Botox as well as learn about the qualifications of the med spa treatment provider. When a patient approaches Botox treatment with complete clarity, they will feel more confident about their decision and achieve better satisfaction from the results.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the committed and profound Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding cities and neighborhoods in this part of Southern California.

 

Appreciating the Patient’s Needs

A dedicated Botox provider will first try to understand why the patient wants to receive Botox treatment, and what exactly about their facial appearance is troubling them. The provider will encourage the patient to share their inherent cosmetic goals and expectations, and use that feedback to create customized Botox injection plan.

In some cases, the patient may want to achieve a subtle lift to the sagging facial skin, or may have deeper facial creases in areas where Botox may not be very effective. The med spa treatment provider may recommend facial filler injections in conjunction with Botox in such cases. The provider will also apprise the patient about the longevity of Botox results and the potential risks and side effects involved.

 

Being Realistic

Botox is a simple, in-office treatment involving minimal to no discomfort and downtime, but the downside is that it can only produce temporary results that will sustain for about three to four months. Furthermore, Botox can only benefit in improving fine lines and moderate wrinkles formed by dynamic facial muscles that create facial movement and expression. Botox is not meant to add volume to the depleted areas of the face.

During the consultation, the provider will inform the patient about these limitations of Botox and help them form realistic expectations. Some providers may also present Botox before and after photos during the consultation to let the patient see for themselves what Botox can or cannot do for them. Testimonials of previous patients can also provide insights about Botox from the perspective of actual patients.

 

Determining Candidacy

The provider will determine the patient’s suitability for Botox procedure during the consultation. If the patient has received Botox injections in the past six months, they may have to wait for some time before another treatment. The degree of facial skin laxity, weakness in forehead muscles and droopiness around the eyelids will also be assessed.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women will be advised to avoid Botox treatment. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox.
