Radiesse Dermal Filler 


Dermal fillers such as Radiesse currently rank as the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the US after Botox. The FDA approved Radiesse med spa filler injection is typically performed for cosmetic reasons, which means that it will not be covered by medical insurance. Therefore, cost of Radiesse becomes an important starting point for many patients.

At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various aspects of Radiesse dermal filler procedure, including its estimated costs. The first concern of the provider will be to help the patient make a well-considered decision.

Rejuvenate medical spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Radiesse to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other neighborhoods and cities in this part of Southern California.

Price Tag Comparison

Innovations in non-surgical med spa procedures have led to the development of a variety of facial rejuvenation treatment options, including laser, RF and ultrasound based procedures.

Radiesse dermal filler treatment is likely to be more cost-effective than many other facial anti-aging procedures, considering the cost of injections and the longevity of results. As a result, many Americans now prefer dermal fillers such as Radiesse over various other skin rejuvenation options.

Radiesse can prove to be more cost-effective even in comparison to several other dermal filler injections. This is because Radiesse results can sustain for about a year to 18 months, while many other dermal fillers only create results that will last for about six months to a year. The patient should evaluate the cost of Radiesse in the light of its sustainability of results.

The treatment provider can perform Radiesse injections in a med spa environment, without the need for general anesthesia or sedation. Unlike surgical treatments, Radiesse injections do not involve the costs of a surgery center or an anesthesiologist’s fee. Radiesse may only involve one office appointment, while light or heat based treatments usually involve multiple appointments.

Post-injection downtime is negligible in case of Radiesse injections. This may prove to be an additional cost-saver for working people who may want to go back to work immediately after the procedure.

Cost Factors

The cost of Radiesse injectable procedure may marginally vary between two med spas and even between two patients at the same med spa. One of the major factors impacting the cost is the location of the med spa. Prime urban centers and main metropolitan areas typically have higher costs due to higher real estate expenses and other overheads.

Patients should also look at the skill and experience of the treatment provider, the quality standards and best practices maintained at the med spa, and the level of personalized care and services provided. In any case, the patient should ideally choose the best provider for their needs, and costs should be a secondary consideration in a procedure such as Radiesse.

Extent of Treatment

The actual sticker price of Radiesse will be determined according to the actual volume of filler gel used for a patient.

Some patients may require a follow-up treatment after three months, which will have additional costs. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other communities and cities in this part of the nation for Radiesse.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

Synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) is a proven and effective chemical compound, which has been used by medical professionals for over two decades. CaHA is the active ingredient in Radiesse gel. It is completely biocompatible and can be administered without subjecting the patient to any prior allergy tests.

CaHA microspheres are suspended in a gel base for cohesive, sub-dermal treatment.

Radiesse is also a non-surgical med spa treatment of choice for patients with depleted facial fat due to disease or other reasons.

Areas of Treatment

radiesse-handOne of the advantages with Radiesse is that its higher longevity of results. Unlike most other non-animal filler injections which produce results lasting for about six months to a year, Radiesse can create results that sustain for 12 to 18 months. The risk of side effects with Radiesse is minimal, which is another key benefit for patients looking for a simple and effective facial anti-aging solution.

Specific Benefits

Radiesse gel can most effectively improve deep furrows, laugh lines and vertical glabellar lines. Patients with mild facial asymmetry can also benefit from the subtle facial volumizing created with Radiesse. Minor lesions and saucerized acne scars can be treated with Radiesse.

To achieve the desired and predictable outcomes with a powerful filler treatment such as Radiesse, patients should select a qualified provider. Although its rate of complications is low, Radiesse requires skilled administering of the injections to achieve safe and predictable results.

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.

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Procedure Steps | Los Angeles Med SpaFor the last several years, Botox has consistently ranked as the most popular cosmetic non-surgical med spa procedure in the US. At the time of initial consultation, the Botox treatment expert will explain the steps involved in the injection procedure.

Botox procedure can be performed in-office, and it usually completed in a single sitting of about 20 minutes. Patients can immediately return to their normal day’s work after that. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities in this part of the country.

 

Learn about Botox

Before a patient has decided to go ahead with the Botox injections with a qualified treatment provider, they should acquire a basic understanding about Botox by reading about it on the provider’s website or talking to other patients who have previously received Botox. Once they have a reasonable familiarity with the procedure, they can make a better decision about receiving Botox treatment.

 

Choose a Treatment Provider

Once the patient done their own basic research about Botox treatment, they should select a dedicated med spa that is fully equipped to provide Botox injections in a safe and professional environment. If the practice is led by an experienced and board certified physician, they would typically maintain high quality standards and best practices, and follow the latest safety protocols.

 

Information Disclosure

During the Botox consultation, the patient should inform the provider about relevant details such as whether they have received Botox or similar injections in the last six months, and whether they are currently taking any anti-allergy pills, sleep medications or muscle relaxants. If the patient is using blood thinners or is a smoker, they may have to wait for a few days and stop using them before Botox injections can be administered.

 

Botox Appointment

It will only take a few minutes to administer the Botox injections, if the treatment is performed by an experienced Botox provider. The provider will identify the targeted sites and apply a mild cleanser to disinfect the area. Anesthesia is usually not necessary, but the provider may apply a topical numbing gel in the marked sites for better patient comfort.

The provider will then use a narrow gauge micro needle to inject Botox medication directly into the specific facial muscles that are creating wrinkles and fine lines. Frown lines and outer eye areas are commonly treated with Botox. An individual muscle may require one to three injections. Discomfort will be minimal because of the tiny size of the needles.

 

Post-Injection Care

Following the injectable procedure, the patient will receive a few simple tips for aftercare. They will be asked to avoid massaging around the treated areas for about 12 hours, and should also avoid lying down for about four hours after the Botox injections.

Direct sun exposure should be avoided for a few days in the treated areas. Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox injections.

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.

How long does Bellafill Dermal Filler last? | Los Angeles Medical SpaBellafill is an FDA approved dermal filler treatment to reduce the effects of facial aging and restore tighter and smoother facial skin. This med spa procedure can produce results that will typically last much longer than in the case of other dermal fillers. The results may even be permanent in some cases.

At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain all about Bellafill facial filler and estimated longevity and benefits. Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides Bellafill treatment to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Immediate and Long-Term Effects

Bellafill dermal filler is formulated with microspheres of a biocompatiable synthetic known as PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). Once the filler gel is injected into the depleted areas of the face, it will transport collagen to the deeper layers. The med spa treatment is especially effective in reducing facial wrinkles around the mouth, commonly known as laugh lines.

The treatment will create immediate effects in terms of the improvement of the skin appearance because the Bellafill gel will smooth out conspicuous facial lines and wrinkles by filling in the depressions. The long term benefits will also occur because the PMMA microspheres will help to stimulate the generation of new collagen fibers. This will build a lasting structural framework within the skin to support the sub-dermal layers.

 

Clinical Studies

Clinical studies have been carried out to determine the longevity and impact of Bellafill dermal filler injections. While the FDA had approved this filler injection for improving the nasolabial folds way back in 2006, the studies continued to test the sustainability and effectiveness of Bellafill.

When the study reached its five-year mark, it was found that 90 percent of the patients treated with Bellafill were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with their treatment. Therefore, even after five years of treatments, patients continued to report benefits of Bellafill.

Over the years, patients have also reported that often the results will progressively get better with the passage of time. A 10-year study is currently underway to officially determine the 10 year mark for Bellafill. According to some researchers, the results with Bellafill dermal filler can also be permanent.

This extensive level of longevity for a non-surgical cosmetic injection procedure sets Bellafill apart from most other dermal filler injections. Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Bellafill procedure.

 

Clinical Trial

Bovine collagen is a key ingredient in Bellafill along with PMMA, which provides temporary correction for about three months, until the body’s natural collagen is formed. To study the effectiveness and longevity of Bellafill, a one-year US clinical trial comprising 250 patients was conducted. The trial evaluated the safety and efficacy of Bellafill compared to another collagen control for nasolabial folds.

It was found that at the end of six months evaluation period, wrinkle correction with Bellafill continued, while the patients treated with collagen control return to their pre-treatment levels. Even at the end of one year, wrinkle control effectiveness of Bellafill was similar to that at six months.

Bellafill Dermal Filler Before and After Photos | Los Angeles | EncinoBellafill dermal filler is an advanced med spa injectable procedure to rejuvenate the facial appearance. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain about the ingredients, benefits and other aspects of Bellafill gel injections.

Before and after images in case of Bellafill dermal filler med spa treatment refer to a pair or group of pictures pertaining to a previous patient who has received the same injectable procedure with satisfactory results. The pictures include images taken prior to the injections and after the injections at a stage when the initial redness and swelling is eliminated and full effects of the filler treatment are visible.

The treatment provider will take care to ensure that the photographs are obtained with the consent of the patient and presented before new patients in an appropriate manner. The patient’s identity may be kept confidential as needed. The sole purpose behind this exercise is to use the photos as a visual tool to explain the potential effectiveness of Bellafill dermal filler to new patients.

 

Benefits

For a new patient who may be trying a dermal filler injectable procedure for the first time, it is important to feel assured about how the treatment will improve the facial wrinkles and fine lines, and whether it will meet the personal cosmetic goals of the patient. Some patients may require only limited treatment in one area of the face, while some others may need more pervasive treatment in multiple areas.

In some cases, the medical spa treatment provider may recommend Bellafill injections in conjunction with another non-surgical aesthetic procedure. In all such situations, the patient is in the best position to make the right decisions when they have access to Bellafill dermal filler before and after photos.

 

Reasonable Expectations

Experienced providers know that most satisfying outcomes in any cosmetic procedure are achieved when the patient has reasonable expectations, and understands what exactly the procedure can or cannot do for them. Therefore, the provider will prefer to present Bellafill dermal filler before and after photos at the very outset.

This will mitigate the risk of any disappointment occurring for the patient at a later stage. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Bellafill and various other non-surgical aesthetic procedures.

 

Online Photos

How much does Bellafill Dermal Filler Cost? | Los Angeles | EncinoBellafill dermal filler has quickly emerged as one of the popular med spa anti-aging injectables to mitigate the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various aspects of Bellafill, explain its benefits and limitations, and inform the patient about its estimated costs.  

The first goal of the treatment provider will be to help the patient make a well-considered decision after evaluating a few treatment options and their suitability. Rejuvenate medical spa provides Bellafill dermal filler to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Cost Comparison

The procedure can be performed in-office, unlike surgical treatments that will involve a dedicated surgical venue.

The price tag of Bellafill injections may turn out to be more competitive against several non-surgical anti-aging techniques based on laser, ultrasonic or RF technologies, and even some deep chemical peels.

Unlike some animal-based dermal fillers, Bellafill is a fully biocompatible HA-based filler, requiring no prior allergy testing. No post-op appointments or prescription meds may be necessary. All these are cost-saving aspects of Bellafill treatment. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas.

 

Fianancial Factors

Bellafill costs can differ between two practices, and also between two patients at the same medical spa in a few cases. The geographical location of the practice will make a difference to the sticker price of the procedure. The average cost of living is usually higher in major metropolitan areas and prime urban cities along the coasts, which has an impact on the costs of most types of goods and services, including cosmetic procedures.

The quality standards followed at a particular med spa, the training and experience of the provider and the level of personalized care and attention can impact the overall cost of the procedure to some degree. Patients should ideally choose a well-recognized med spa for an advanced dermal filler injectable procedure for the face such as Bellafill.

 

Extent of Treatment

The price tag of Bellafill treatment may vary from one patient to another depending on the extent of treatment required and the amount of Bellafill gel or injection vials used. If the patient is planning to receive multiple treatments in conjunction with Bellafill, they may be eligible for a rebate on the total sticker price of the treatment.

Sometimes the manufacturer or the treatment provider may be having a special offer for a limited time period, which can give price benefit. Patients may also consider various financing options to avoid paying the full cost from their own pocket upfront.

 Non-Invasive Kybella May Improve Your Neckline | Encino | CalabasasMinimally invasive cosmetic procedures received at a qualified med spa can offer significant improvement in the way a person looks. The annual figures compiled by the American Society of Plastic Surgery continue to demonstrate a consistently growing demand for non-surgical injectable procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers.

Botox, arguably the most popular facial anti-aging injectable treatment in the world, is produced by Allergan, Inc. Now the company has introduce Kybella, another FDA approved injectable treatment designed to dissolve fat below the chin. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Kybella to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Key to Success

The key to success with a procedure such as Kybella injectable treatment to enhance the neckline lies in consulting a comprehensive med spa that is equipped to provide a full array of non-surgical aesthetic options. At such a center, a patient can expect to receive the appropriate treatment modality for their unique circumstances.

Just as with any surgical procedure, even for a non-surgical treatment such as Kybella, there are appropriate candidates as well as patients with contraindications. The first step is to choose a medical spa where comprehensive evaluation and care is available for patients with a specific aesthetic concern such as excess fat deposits under the chin.

The patient should ideally avoid a place where the only treatment option they offer is Kybella injections. It is important to remember that “if all you have is a hammer the whole world is a nail,” which rings true for cosmetic service providers who may only offer a single treatment option such as Kybella.

 

When to Choose Kybella?

Kybella injections are currently approved by the FDA only for the cosmetic fat reduction of submental fat. The ideal candidate will have reasonably elastic skin in the area below the chin. The adipose tissue excess in the submittal and chin neck angle will only be mild to moderate. The candidate should not have a major discrepancy of the mandibular jaw with the midface, or have an exceptionally steep mandibular plain angle.

 

Who should Avoid Kybella Injections?

If the patient has significant skin laxity in the neck area, or a considerable deflation of the neck due to weight loss with demarcated platysmal bands should avoid Kybella injectable procedure. In such a condition, if fat tissue is reduced with Kybella, it will only worsen the deformity.

Kybella treatment should also be avoided for patients suffering from a deep underbite and a small chin with an oblique chin-neck angle. The key ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is meant to dissolve fat. But this biochemical also produces some inflammation to promote skin retraction and collagen production.

Therefore, loose skin with a recessed chin and an oblique chin neck angle is not likely to produce substantive positive outcomes. Chin implants and liposuction may be the right treatment combination in such cases. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas for Kybella.
