Reduce Facial Aging Like Crow’s FeetRenuvion (J-Plasma) is a minimally invasive med spa treatment that offers an alternative to facelift and various other skin tightening procedures for the face, body, chin, and neck. Renuvion (J-Plasma) enables the outer layer of the skin to gently peel away.

This gives the treated area new layer of fresh, tauter, and more youthful skin. Patients who are bothered by the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes can benefit from this innovative treatment.

The full procedure is performed under local anesthetic. This makes Renuvion (J-Plasma) a safe and more predictable treatment.

It is an excellent option for people seeking to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and revitalize their face without surgery or those who have previously undergone facial surgery and now want to enhance fine lines and age spots on the surface of the skin.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Renuvion (J-Plasma) for crow’s feet removal to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) Advantages

Non-Surgical

As Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a non-surgical procedure, it does not create the complications and discomfort that are often associated with surgical procedures. It does not leave scars, other than if it is performed sub-dermally. Even in case of a subdermal procedure, the incision scars are minimal.

Significant Outcomes

The before-and-after pictures showcase dramatic improvements. J-Plasma offers excellent improvements and eliminates facial aging signs such as crow’s feet despite being a non-surgical treatment.

Short Procedure

At times, Renuvion (J-Plasma) is promoted as “the one hour facelift.” But the med spa procedure typically takes not more than 45 minutes.

One Treatment Only

Renuvion (J-Plasma) usually requires a single session to achieve full desired results. This distinguishes it from many other competing non-surgical procedures. But some people may have to undergo more than one skin resurfacing sessions.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) Procedure

Although Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a skin resurfacing treatment, it delivers the ionized energy in the uppermost layer of the skin. This makes the skin peel revealing a fresh, new layer of skin, and the new layer is actually more youthful, offering a tauter and brighter appearance. Renuvion (J-Plasma) decreases the skin’s discoloration, enhances texture, shrinks pores, mitigates deep and fine lines, and tightens loose skin.

If used subdermally (beneath the skin), the Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a powerful tightening procedure. Helium gas, along with electrical energy, is applied (akin to a precise airbrush), enabling for extremely controlled “cool plasma” delivery. This element offers the skin treatment from the outside (leading to skin peeling and contracting), or if applied beneath the skin, it purely tightens.

The entire procedure does not involve any significant discomfort and is carried out under local anesthesia. In addition to numbing the treatment area, oral meds and other solutions may be used to reduce the patient’s discomfort. Usually, the full area is treated with J Plasma, and then the provider will use an extra pass to enhance further skin tightening.

Efficient In-Office Procedure

Renuvion (J-Plasma) is performed comfortably and safely as an in-office treatment. The procedure usually lasts for between 30 and 45 minutes. Renuvion (J-Plasma) usually involves minimal pain and effectively improves the appearance of aging signs such as crow’s feet around the eyes.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Renuvion (J-Plasma) crow’s feet treatment.

Reduce Facial Aging Like SunspotsThe goal of facial rejuvenation med spa treatments is to make an individual appear more youthful. Their aim is to mitigate lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, sleeplessness, and stress. The key issue is to understand which facial rejuvenation treatment is more effective and suitable.

Facial rejuvenation procedures are both invasive as well as non-invasive. They may involve the use of lights, ultrasound, surgical incisions, chemicals, and lasers. Such procedures may take days or weeks for healing. Finally, these procedures can sometimes leave the patient wondering whether they made the correct decision.

Patients who are looking for a safe and advanced procedure to reduce facial aging signs such as sunspots, they should consider the cutting edge Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment. This innovative technology offers dramatic outcomes without surgery and with minimal side-effects.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the judicious Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Renuvion (J-Plasma) for sunspot reduction to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities and suburbs in this area of the country.

How Renuvion (J-Plasma) Works

The operating term in Renuvion (J-Plasma) is “plasma.” Here, it does not refer to the clear fluid found in blood or any other kind of bodily fluid. It refers to ionized gas that is a good conductor of electrical pulses. Plasma is known as the “fourth state of matter,” along with solids, liquids, and other gases.

The Renuvion (J-Plasma) device begins with helium gas. It uses radio frequency (RF) energy to ionize the gas, which turns helium gas into cold helium plasma. This cold plasma emerges from the device in a stream as the med spa treatment provider applies the device to the skin. The Renuvion (J-Plasma) device may be used sub-dermally or over the skin.

If the device is used sub-dermally, it is inserted into the skin using tiny incisions.  The provider will inject the ionized gas under the skin, making the skin tauter instantly. This technique is also frequently used on the body as an alternative to liposuction.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) Candidates

Though Renuvion (J-Plasma) may be advised as a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, it can do more than just make the skin tighter or reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment can address facial aging signs such as sunspots and uneven pigmentation. This element enables this procedure to rival non-invasive rejuvenation procedures for the face such as intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser resurfacing.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment providers identify ideal candidates as people with mild to moderate skin imperfections such as sunspots, who seek a dramatic transformation.

Patients should note that J-Plasma is not always advisable as a spot treatment. It is best for use on the entire face and neck area. However, some people do occasionally seek J-Plasma spot procedures for particular concerns.

Outcomes

The skin rejuvenation effects of a Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment are noticeable immediately. The skin underneath the eliminated top layer is visibly smoother. The skin gets rid of imperfections such as sunspots and acquires a radiance which contributes to its smooth and glowing appearance.

It could take a few months for the full effects of the procedure to become visible and the associated redness to subside completely. Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other cities and towns in this part of the southwest for Renuvion (J-Plasma) sunspot treatment.

Conspicuous signs of facial aging such as smile lines can be improved with a range of proven med spa procedures.Reduce Facial Aging Like Smile Lines

Rejuvenate Medical Spa traditionally uses a combination of Botox, dermal fillers, lasers and threads to address facial aging signs such as sunspots, “smoker lines,” smile lines, and crow’s feet.

These traditional treatments have been successfully used for years, but now Rejuvenate also provides the innovative Renuvion cosmetic technology for reduction of smile lines, powered by J plasma treatment system. Led by Dr. Bijan Farah, Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides J Plasma facial anti-aging technique to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities across the landscape.

Advantages of J Plasma

As per Dr. Bijan Farah, J Plasma is similar to pushing a “reset” button on your skin. Surgical procedures such as facelift can lift and “reposition” facial skin.

However, there are many limitations of surgery, including risk, discomfort, downtime and cost. Also, a surgical facelift does not resurface the skin. This can leave the patient with the same, damaged and discolored facial skin.

On the other hand, J Plasma treatment dramatically contracts the skin and removes years of damage from facial skin in an efficient way. J Plasma for skin resurfacing can significantly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and irregular pigmentation, which may not be possible with traditional surgical facelifts. Additionally, the same device can smoothen and tighten neck and under eye skin.

J Plasma utilizes a gas plasma technology which is superior in comparison to a laser resurfacing. Rejuvenate med spa treatment providers may advise treatments for the full face.

But they also undertake spot treatment of the mouth, neck/jowl region, and eyes. J Plasma is a single, once-in-a-lifetime in-office treatment. Dr. Farah and his team perform this procedure in office under only tumescent and oral anesthesia.

Ideal Candidates

An ideal candidate for this procedure is any individual who wants to address problematic sites such as:

  • Age Spots
  • Pigmented facial skin
  • Imprinted lines or Wrinkles
  • Acne Scars
  • Sunspots
  • Melasma

How does J Plasma Work?

Plasma refers to an energy state generated by adding energy to a gas. J Plasma is an advanced energy device that creates a combination of cold helium plasma and RF energy.

The helium plasma centers RF energy for higher control of tissue effect. This leads to a highly targeted procedure that almost eliminates unintended trauma to the tissue. Dr. Farah utilizes a wand to gently “paint” the treatment areas with plasma energy.

Are there side effects, and what to expect post-treatment?

Though the treatment is relatively painless, the downtime and recovery process can take around two to three weeks. During the initial few weeks after the procedure, patients may experience minor inflammation, redness, skin peeling, and itching.

Recovery at home for a few days is vital to protect the skin and attain ideal outcomes. J Plasma is hyper-focused, which significantly decreases pain, hyperpigmentation, burn scars, and other such standard side-effects associated with laser procedures. A majority of patients describe a pain-free recovery.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other neighborhoods and towns in this region of the state for J Plasma for facial smile lines reduction.

Remove Wrinkles and Resurface Your Skin With Bovie Medical’s Renuvion (formally J-Plasma)J-Plasma from Bovie Medical Corporation is a patented plasma-based med spa procedure to resurface the skin and rejuvenate soft tissue in specific areas.

J-Plasma makes use of an innovative helium ionization process to create a focused and stable plasma beam that allows the treatment provider to resurface the skin with higher precision and in a minimally invasive way.

The advanced J-Plasma device can deliver three separate energy modalities to match with the skin tightening and resurfacing needs of different patients. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides J-Plasma treatment to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other cities and neighborhoods in this region of California.

J-Plasma Enrollment in Clinical Study

Bovie Medical Corporation, the developer of J-Plasma, has now announced that it has enrolled the first patient in an IDE (Investigational Device Exemption) clinical study in the US. This study will reveal more facts about the efficacy and safety of J-Plasma technology for dermal skin resurfacing.

This comprehensive clinical study will be carried out at multiple centers, and will evaluate the benefits of J-Plasma procedure for the diminishing of facial wrinkles, creases and rhytides. The study will enroll 55 eligible patients and will be performed at up to five investigational centers.

Enrolled patients will go through one treatment with the J-Plasma technique. Their severity of facial wrinkles will be assessed at baseline and thereafter at every follow up point.

According to Charlie Goodwin, CEO of Bovie Medical, the developer’s long-term clinical strategy aims to expand the clinical indications of J-Plasma for use in aesthetic enhancement, starting with dermal skin resurfacing procedures.

With the enrollment of the first patient in the skin resurfacing clinical study, the company has now achieved an important milestone in this journey. Bovie Medical will utilize the results of this study to demonstrate the aesthetic benefits and safety of J-Plasma and submit the technology to the US FDA for their review and clearance.

Why choose J-Plasma dermal skin resurfacing?

Patients choose J-Plasma med spa procedure for skin rejuvenation due to the following reasons:

  • Improved results achieved in a minimally invasive way
  • Comfortable in-office procedure
  • Can be completed in about one hour
  • Performed using only local anesthesia
  • Almost no visible incisions or scarring

What is Sub-dermal Skin Tightening?

While the traditional facelift surgery involves significant incisions, long recovery and potential scarring, the sub-dermal skin tightening with J-Plasma allows the qualified providers at Dr. Farah’s office to perform the procedure in a minimally invasive way.

The provider will place tiny incisions under the chin and behind the ears to keep the scarring very discreet and minimal. Through the incisions, the provider will deliver plasma energy to remove excess fat tissue while tightening the lax skin in the targeted area. The heat energy promotes natural healing and fresh collagen production.

The provider uses the plasma energy to tighten and sculpt the tissue through the neck and jaw line to create a more youthful appearance and firmer skin. Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas across the horizon for J-Plasma treatment.

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.

Botox Injections

botox before and after pictureBotox is an FDA approved injectable treatment to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face. This med spa procedure is ideally suited for individuals who want a minimally invasive solution to create a smoother and more youthful looking face. However, the patients should know that Botox can only create temporary improvements.

The wonderful aspect is that Botox treatment can be repeated in future for prolonged benefits. Dr. Bijan Farah provides Botox injections at his state of the art med spa. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive Botox at Rejuvenate medical spa.

Longevity of Results

An individual receiving Botox injections for the first time may expect to enjoy the results for anywhere between three to four months. The strength of botulinum toxin type A, which is the key ingredient in Botox, will mitigate as months go by, resulting in the muscle returning to its normal active state. Therefore, the lines and wrinkles related to that muscle will reappear on the face in three to four months.

Over a longer period of time, if the patient receives multiple Botox treatments under the guidance of an experienced provider at a qualified med spa, they can expect to have more sustainable results. The underlying facial muscles will become training to remain in a relaxed state due to repetitive Botox action over time. This will make the aging lines less conspicuous and results of Botox may last longer.

Individuals who regularly use Botox treatments over time may progressively need fewer treatments, or the gap between two treatments may increase. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other communities in this part of the country for Botox injections.

Variable Longevity

Botox results may last for a different length of time in different patients. A person with stronger facial muscles will typically form more visible frown lines. In this case, once the strength of botulinum toxin beings to reduce, the motion of the wrinkle forming muscle will be restore faster because the muscle is more resilient.

On the other hand, people with less robust facial muscles may sustain the results of Botox for a relatively longer period. Men usually have stronger facial muscles than women, and in their case the results may sustain for a slightly reduced period of time compared to women.

Repeating the Injections

Many patients want to prolong the effects of Botox with repeat treatments. If the patient does not want to have much gap between two treatments, they must keep a check on when the muscle movement seems to be returning back to its original motion. This movement may be noticeable before the actual muscle contraction and the deepening of the furrow between the brows.

In any case, patients should note that repeat treatments of Botox must only be taken in accordance with the doctor’s advice. The required gap between two treatments should be maintained. What volume of medication was administered in one treatment may also affect how long the results will sustain.

ThermiSmooth for Facial Wrinkles Cost | Calabasas Medical Spa | EncinoThermiSmooth is an RF technology based med spa procedure to improve the appearance of aging skin and reduce facial wrinkles. Cost becomes an important starting point for many patients seeking an elective procedure such as ThermiSmooth because insurance coverage is not available for such treatments.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides ThermiSmooth and various other non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive ThermiSmooth at Rejuvenate.

 

Price Comparison with Facelift

Facelift cosmetic surgery procedure is designed to reduce facial wrinkles and restore a youthful face. However, this surgery will involve anesthesia costs, fee of the plastic surgeon, surgical facility costs, and other pre- and post-operative expenses. Facelift will also involve significant downtime, which can have cost implications for working people.

ThermiSmooth, on the other hand, will avoid almost all these additional cost components. This radio frequency based med spa procedure can be performed without the need for anesthesia. It can be completed as an in-office procedure, and does not involve any significant downtime. Therefore, the cost of ThermiSmooth will be considerably lower than facelift, neck lift or upper face surgery procedures.

 

Factors Impacting the Monetary Amount

The monetary amount of ThermiSmooth procedure can slightly vary between two medical spas, and may sometimes even vary between two patients at the same medical spa. A number of factors will affect the overall price tag of the procedure.

 

Geographical Factors

Where the medical spa is located can make a significant difference to the cost of a procedure such as ThermiSmooth. Leading urban areas have higher costs of real estate and higher costs of staff and services, which will impact the average costs of most types of products and services, including aesthetic procedures. On the other hand, a medical spa located in a smaller town in the interior regions will usually be able to offer slightly lower prices due to the lower costs of living.

 

Quality Standards of the Med Spa

ThermiSmooth is an advanced procedure based on RF technology. It is important to choose a qualified medical spa that is fully equipped and is led by an experienced physician. Such a med spa will invest in maintaining the highest quality standards and safety protocols, in addition to personalized care and attention to every patient. Therefore, the dollar amount of a procedure such as ThermiSmooth may be a little higher as compared to a less equipped or less experienced medical spa.

 

Extent of Treatment

Some patients may require only limited cosmetic reduction of facial fine lines as a maintenance procedure, but some others may need more intensive outcomes. In some cases, the treatment provider may have to combine ThermiSmooth with another procedure to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals. The overall cost of treatment can marginally vary depending on the length, complexity and type of treatment performed.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa is equipped to provide cutting edge procedures such as ThermiSmooth to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas.

ThermiSmooth for Facial Wrinkles | Medical Spa | Encino | CalabasasThe face is aesthetically the most prominent part of the body. Signs of aging will first show on the face and can make a person appear older than their actual age. Innovative non-invasive med spa techniques are now available to treat facial aging, which involve minimum or no discomfort and downtime.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is equipped to provide cutting edge anti-aging facial solutions such as ThermiSmooth, which do not involve any cuts, incisions or needles. The medical spa provides ThermiSmooth treatment to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and surrounding locations.

What is ThermiSmooth?

ThermiSmooth is a unique radio frequency (RF) based system designed to reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines. The system includes a specially designed thermistor regulated hand piece. The hand piece gently heats the top surface of the skin using dermal heating, while targeting problem areas around the cheeks, forehead, neck, mouth, and eyelids.

ThermiSmooth med spa facial treatment differentiates itself from several other non-invasive treatment systems. ThermiSmooth with the Thermi RF system is the only one that can adjust its temperature to effectively resolve an individual patient’s specific areas of concern. The advanced temperature control also significantly enhances the patient’s comfort.

How does it Work?

ThermiSmooth improves the appearance of skin from inside out for sustainable benefits. When consistent heat is applied above 40 degrees Celsius to the targeted areas, the collagen beneath the skin will be stimulated for fresh production. This triggers a long-term process of skin tightening, which helps to reduce the effects of facial aging.

The procedure is designed to tighten loose or sagging facial skin and it will also smooth the uneven facial contours by reducing fat pockets. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas for ThermiSmooth and various other non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures.

Candidacy

Women and men who are bothered by the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles and lines on the face, but want to avoid invasive surgery, may make good candidates for ThermiSmooth RF treatment. Patients with sagging facial skin can also achieve a subtle lift to the face with ThermiSmooth.

The procedure is ideally suited for working people and busy moms who usually seek a procedure that does not involve a longer recovery and entails minimal risk of complications. A qualified med spa ThermiSmooth treatment provider will determine the patient’s candidacy during the initial consultation.

Treatment Process

Most patients will require multiple ThermiSmooth treatments. The exact number of treatments will vary according to the area of treatment and the patient’s personal cosmetic goals. The treatment provider will examine the patient’s condition of facial and neck skin and review their medical history to create a customized ThermiSmooth treatment plan.

Prior to the treatment, the provider will apply a gel to the skin’s surface in the treatment area. The temperature of the RF device will be set to a specific level and the hand piece will be gently moved across the treatment area. The system will adjust temperature automatically based on patient feedback.

Hair Replacement Before and After Pictures | Medical Spa | EncinoBotox is one of the most popular anti-aging facial non-surgical procedures in the world. When the procedure is performed by a trained and experienced provider at a certified Botox med spa, it can create very desirable aesthetic outcomes in terms of reduction of facial lines and wrinkles. However, patients should be aware that botulinum toxin A, the active ingredient of Botox, is an extremely potent biological agent.

If the Botox treatment is performed wrongly or administered in incorrect dosage, it can cause significant side effects. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by highly experienced physician Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Botox and various other procedures to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and surrounding communities.

 

Common Side Effects

Botox anti-aging injections are FDA approved and offer high safety and efficacy as long as the treatment is performed by an experienced provider. The most common side effects include bruising or swelling at the site of injections. Some patients may develop flu-like symptoms or headache. Mild tingling or numbness may also occur in the injection site. These are temporary effects, which usually clear on their own.

If the injections are not placed correctly by the med spa provider, there is a risk of the medication spreading to surrounding tissue. This can cause more serious side effects such as:

  • Droopy eyelids
  • Crooked smile
  • Cockeyed brows
  • Excessive tears
  • Dry eye

If any of these effects are noticed within hours or even weeks after received Botox treatment, the patient should immediately contact the physician.

 

Severe Side Effects

More severe side effects of Botox are highly unlikely, but the possibility exists that the toxin may spread to distant parts of the body and cause botulism-like symptoms. Immediate medical assistance is necessary if the patient notices any of the following symptoms following Botox treatment:

  • Weakness in the muscles all over the body
  • Problems with vision
  • Difficulty in swallowing or speaking
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Poor bladder control

Women who are pregnant or breast feeding may be advised to avoid Botox because the potential effects on the baby are currently unknown. The Botox expert will also advise the patients to avoid rubbing the injection site for about 12 hours following the treatment to minimize the risk of medication spreading to nearby areas.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby locations for Botox and other procedures.

 

Precautions

The risk of side effects with Botox is greatly reduced when the patient chooses an experienced provider in a professional medical spa setting. Trends such as “Botox parties” where a physician offers Botox treatment to a group of patients at their home or another non-medical location at a lower cost may pose a higher risk of side effects. These options should preferably be avoided.

Botox can have an adverse reaction with certain antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, herbal remedies, and heart and Alzheimer’s drugs. The patient should disclose the medications they may be using currently or have used in the recent past to ensure appropriate decisions can be made by the Botox provider.
