What is Juvederm Vollure Filler? | Calabasas Medical Spa | EncinoJuvederm Vollure is the newest addition to the Juvederm family of med spa facial dermal fillers. The FDA has given its approval for this first of its kind cosmetic filler for people above the age of 21.

The unique feature of Juvederm Vollure is that it is the first and only hyaluronic acid based filler approved for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, which lasts for up to 18 months.

Allergan, the manufacturer of Juvederm group of fillers and Botox, has introduced the safe and proven Vollure in the US market. Vollure is already popular in over 80 countries, and has been used in Europe since 2013. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the stellar and dependable Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Juvederm Vollure injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other locations in this geographical region of SoCal.

 

Clinical Trial Results

The FDA approval for Vollure has come after an extensive clinical trial feature this filler showed positive results. The results of the trial revealed that nearly 60 percent of the patients experienced improvements in nasolabial folds for up to 18 months. The finding assumes significance because until now results with most hyaluronic acid based fillers typically last between six months to a year.

Furthermore, the study also showed high levels of patient satisfaction, with 82 percent of patients saying they were very satisfied after six months and 68 percent still claiming satisfaction at 18 months. This is the longest-lasting results shown in a clinical study in nasolabial folds with dermal fillers, according to clinical trial investigators.

 

Vycross Technology

Juvederm Vollure med spa filler is based on the same Vycross technology that is used to create Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Volbella fillers for cheek and lip augmentation. But the difference is that this time the FDA has approved Juvederm Vollure to use the Vycross technology specifically in the nasolabial folds.

Nasolabial folds are the number one dermal treatment area for many patients. The stronger bundling of molecules due to Vycross technology allows the filler gel to sustain for a longer time in the deeper tissue without disintegrating.

 

Versatile Formulation

Juvederm Vollure has been uniquely tailored with a balance of gel firmness and low cohesiveness, which yields a versatile formulation. This dermal filler gel can add subtle volume for the improvement of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. With the addition of this new filler, treatment providers can more effectively offer customized dermal filler injectable solutions according to the targeted needs of the patient.

Mild side effects associated with Juvederm Vollure treatment are self-limiting and temporary in nature. Side effects are usually confined to the injection site, and may include swelling, bruising, tenderness, lumps, bumps, redness, firmness, discoloration, and itching. These effects will mostly resolve on their own in one to two weeks.

The procedure can be performed in-office, and involves almost no downtime for most patients. The cutting edge and fabulous Dr. Farah of Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other suburbs and neighborhoods across the horizon for Juvederm Vollure.

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Risks and Safety | Los Angeles Med SpaBotox is an FDA approved injectable treatment offered by a med spa to mitigate the signs of aging from the face and restore a more youthful look. High safety profile of Botox injections has made it the most popular non-surgical anti-aging cosmetic procedure in the US today.

However, some risks are going to be inherent to Botox, and the patient should be aware of these risks in order to make a well-informed choice. Botulinum toxin is a powerful biological agent, which can cause severe side effects if it is administered wrongly or in wrong volumes.

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 other neighborhoods and communities across the horizon.

 

Potential Risks

Potential side effects of Botox treatment include pain or discomfort in the injection sites, swelling, bruising, redness, inflammation, bleeding and infection. Some of the symptoms may indicate an allergic reaction. If the patient experiences dizziness or difficulty in breathing, they must contact a physician promptly.

Some of the other known risks of this med spa injection procedure include muscle spasms, droopy eyelids, twitching, headache, neck pain, numbness in the injection areas, dry mouth, and fatigue. Some patients may have numbness due to muscle immobility, while others may experience muscle spasms where the Botox treatment has not been effective.

If the provider has wrongly administered the injections or delivered Botox medication in excess quantity, it may spread to unintended areas and create an adverse effect on the surrounding tissue. For example, when Botox is injected between the brows or near the upper eyelids, it may temporarily lead to drooping eyelids.

 

Other Complications

In rare cases, other complications with Botox may occur, particularly if the injections have been wrongly administered. These may include:

  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Cockeyed eyebrows
  • Drooling or crooked smile
  • Excessive tearing
  • Vision difficulties
  • General muscle weakness
  • Difficulty in speaking or swallowing
  • Weak bladder control

Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox treatment.

 

Minimizing the Risks

To minimize the risks of Botox, it is crucial to determine the right candidates. Botox should not be administered on people with one or more of the following conditions:

  • Allergic to one of the ingredients of Botox or its variants
  • Suffered from side effects of Botox or its variants in the past
  • Having a stubborn skin infection in the area to be injected
  • Suffering from ALS, myasthenia gravis, Lambert-Eaton syndrome or another disease that affects muscles or nerves
  • Asthma or chronic breathing troubles
  • Bleeding problems
  • Received a facial surgery recently
  • Planning to receive a facial surgery shortly
  • Weakness in forehead muscles
  • Unable to temporarily stop the use of blood thinners or NSAIDs

Pregnant and breastfeeding women should also avoid Botox. The patient should not massage the treated area for about 12 hours, and avoid lying down for about four hours after the injections.

Botox Before and After Photos

botox before and after pictures

According to the ASPS figures, Botox currently ranks as the most popular cosmetic non-surgical anti-aging procedure in the US. At the time of initial consultation, the certified Botox provider at a med spa will explain all about the treatment and may also present Botox before and after photographs before the patient.

The provider’s first goal will be to help the patient make an informed decision about Botox. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other cities in this part of the state have an opportunity to receive Botox injections at Rejuvenate Medical Spa, which is led by Dr. Bijan Farah.

What are Botox Before and After Images?

Before and after images in case of Botox injections refer to a pair or group of pictures pertaining to an earlier patient who has received the same treatment with successful results. The images include pictures taken prior to the treatment and after the treatment at a stage when the initial redness and swelling has dissipated and full effects of Botox injections are visible.

The med spa treatment provider will take care to ensure that the photographs are obtained with the patient’s consent and presented before new patients in an appropriate manner. The patient’s identity may be kept undisclosed as per the standard protocol. The Botox provider’s only purpose in this exercise is to use the before and after photos as a visual tool to show the potential effectiveness of Botox injectable treatment to new patients.

Benefits

When a new patient seeks Botox injections for the first time, they may be unsure about how the treatment will improve their facial aging lines and whether it will meet their personal aesthetic goals. Some patients may only require limited Botox treatment to improve frown lines and crow’s feet, but some others may also want Botox for non-label cosmetic uses in other areas of the face.

In some cases, Botox may be applied as an additional treatment in conjunction with another surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedure. In each situation, the patient will be in a better position to make the right choices when they have access to Botox before and after photos.

Keeping Reasonable Expectations

In any aesthetic procedure, the best satisfaction levels are achieved by patients who maintain a positive outlook and have clear aesthetic priorities and reasonable expectations. Therefore, an experienced Botox provider will prefer to present Botox before and after photos prior to the actual procedure.

Once the patient knows clearly what Botox can or cannot do for them, they can make a more informed decision. This eliminates the risk of any disappointments occurring later on to a great extent. Patients with realistic expectations will typically appreciate the final results better and feel more confident about their appearance.

Online Pictures

The treatment provider has the option to present Botox before and after photos on their practice website as well as disseminate them via social media to encourage more people to consider Botox injections. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox.

The real game changer here is virtual technology and the plastic surgery community jumped on board of this right from the outset. The advantages of this technology for patients is manifold. For one, patients never have to drive to the clinic to see pictures of Botox and so on. They do this from their office cubicle or at their own home with no one being the wiser.

Now when patients do schedule a consultation they are leaps and bounds ahead of where they would be without website pictures. This decreases the chances of any surprises and Dr. Bijan Farah can spend more time working on procedures and less time in meetings and consultations. Patients are less anxious now since they are more informed as well. Virtual technology is here to stay.

How much does Botox Cost? | Los Angeles Med Spa | Non-SurgicalBotox currently ranks as the most popular non-surgical med spa procedure in the US. One of the reasons behind its consistent popularity is that this facial rejuvenation treatment is relatively more affordable in comparison to several other surgical and non-surgical options.

Facial rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments are considered elective, and will not be covered under insurance. Therefore, cost becomes an important starting point for many patients when they are considering treatment options. Rejuvenate medical spa is a committed provider of a range of cutting edge cosmetic procedures, including Botox.

Led by the highly experienced Dr. Bijan Farah, Rejuvenate delivers the best standards of care at competitive prices to enable patients to attain their aesthetic goals in an affordable way. Rejuvenate med spa provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Comparing the Costs

A wide range of judicious, proven, and appropriate non-surgical facial enhancement procedures are now available for both women and men. Each procedure offers its own unique value and comes with a specific dollar amount. As most of these treatment options are outside the scope of health insurance, it is logical for a patient to draw a judicious cost-benefit comparison and then make a well-considered decision.

Facial rejuvenation options in cosmetic surgery can cost thousands of dollars, and even non-invasive solutions involving ultrasound, laser or RF technologies can have significant costs. Deep chemical peels and dermal filler injections are also likely to cost more than Botox. Botox is often among the more affordable med spa treatment options creating safe and desirable outcomes.

 

Price Tag Variations

The monetary amount of Botox injectable procedure can sometimes vary from one med spa to another. Where the med spa is located, what are the kind of facilities and services it provides, whether it is managed by an experienced and board certified provider, and how trained and dedicated is the staff at the facility will make a difference to the overall costs of Botox treatment.

In some cases, the Botox treatment may even cost differently for two patients at the same practice. This will depend on the amount of treatment needed by a patient. If the patient wants improvement in multiple facial areas, more units of Botox medication may be required. On the other hand, if a patient only requires a minimal maintenance treatment, it will require a reduced quantity of Botox.

Under all circumstances, the patient should ideally choose a medical spa that prioritizes quality and safety, and offers personalized care and service to every patient. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Botox.

 

Sticker Price Computation

Many practices will determine the costs of Botox treatment on a per unit basis. But some practices may charge a price according to the location of the face that needs to be treated. Sometimes the provider or the manufacturer may offer special rebates on the cost price for a specified time period.

Facial Fillers | Dermal Fillers | Injectables | San Fernando | Calabasas CABotox is the most recognizable and widely accepted non-surgical facial anti-aging med spa procedure today. The FDA initially approved Botox in 2002 for cosmetic reduction of frown lines between the brows and on the forehead, and then additionally approved it for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet around the eyes.

Over the years, Botox experts have used this injectable treatment very successfully for numerous non-label cosmetic purposes as well. Ever since it was originally approved by the FDA, Botox continues to rank as the number one cosmetic procedure in the US.

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 other cities and even communities in the region.

 

How does Botox Work?

The key ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin type A, which is one the most potent biological substances in the world. Botox contains this neurotoxin in an extremely diluted form to achieve the desired effects. It is directly injected into the overactive facial muscle, which is causing the wrinkle formation.

The toxin will act quickly to sever the communication between the nerve and the muscle, resulting in muscle relaxation. This will enable the wrinkle on the surface to gradually fade away. The effects of Botox injections can sustain for about three to four months with a single treatment. The procedure can be performed in a med spa without involving anesthesia or any specific recovery.

 

Candidacy

Patients between the ages of 18 and 65 are eligible to receive Botox injections. An individual who is unhappy about the appearance of minor facial wrinkles and fine lines caused due to muscular activity, and wants to avoid surgery, may be an ideal candidate for Botox.

Busy mothers and working people usually prefer Botox over other options because it involves minimal risk of complications and almost no downtime. Pregnant or breastfeeding women and individuals with known neuromuscular disorders should avoid Botox injections.

 

Treatment Areas

 

Eyes

The area around the eyes will typically develop dynamic wrinkles caused due to repetitive muscle movement and facial expressions. Botox acts well on these wrinkles, and can be used effectively to rejuvenate the eye appearance.

The patient will not experience any loss of sensation or numbness in the treated area because Botox will only impact the muscle nerves and not the nerves of sensation.

 

Brows and Forehead

Activities such as smiling, laughing and frowning can cause the wrinkling of the brow over a period of time. Botox has been approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.

Both women and men can enjoy the benefits of Botox and restore a youthful looking brow. Botox can also remove the forehead lines to a significant extent because the treatment works effectively on horizontal lines.

 

Jaw Contouring

One of the recent uses of Botox is jaw contour enhancement in people with a square shaped face. Botox will help to reduce the size of masseter muscles, resulting in a gently curved jaw and cheek.

Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and other cities across Southern California for Botox.

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.

Hair Replacement Options in the Los Angeles Area | Encino Medical Spa

Hair loss and hair thinning can have an impact on an individual’s appearance as well as self-esteem. Millions of men and women across the country suffer from varying degrees of hair loss today. For people who want to avoid invasive hair transplant surgery, an innovative med spa treatment procedure called PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy is now available.

PRP therapy is a minimally invasive hair restoration technique that employs the power of the patient’s natural healing mechanism to regenerate damaged hair follicles. Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides PRP therapy to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

Effectiveness

PRP therapy can be used as a standalone technique, or in conjunction with other hair regeneration treatments to improve their effectiveness. For instance, it can be used along with laser hair restoration to stimulate the hair follicles for stronger and healthier hair growth.

Recent studies have shown that follicles that were presumed to be dead for many years may actually be lying dormant, injured, or compromised, and may still be capable for hair growth for five to eight years after they first appeared ‘dead’. It is possible to activate adult stem cells within these unproductive hair follicles with the help of powerful growth factors found in the body’s own PRP.

PRP therapy will also promote localized cell growth and the formation of new blood vessels to feed the regenerated hair follicles. PRP med spa treatment will involve minimal discomfort and downtime, and produce sustainable, natural looking results. An experienced treatment provider will customize the procedure to suit the unique hair restoration needs of a patient.

 

PRP Injection Treatments

PRP injection treatments are ideally suited for people who are unhappy with their condition of hair loss but want to avoid surgical options. Individuals suffering from one or more of the following hair loss conditions can benefit the most from PRP therapy:

 

Hypotrichosis

This is a genetic condition causing abnormal hair patterns or no hair growth.

 

Male Pattern Hair Loss

In the early phases of male balding patterns, PRP therapy can be particularly effective. It is also beneficial when the patient has a significant amount of miniaturized hair.

 

Female Pattern Hair Loss

Both early stages and advanced stages of female pattern hair loss can be effectively treated with PRP injections.

 

Alopecia Areata

This is a condition in which the hair occurs in patches.

 

Alopecia Totalis

In this case, the patient may suffer from total loss of all hair from the scalp.

 

Other Hair Loss Conditions

PRP therapy may also be useful in addressing other hair loss conditions related to metabolic complications,  iron deficiency, or medication side effects.

 

Results

In many cases, PRP therapy will lead to new growth and improvements in hair thickness and density as early as within two months of the initial treatment. Optimal hair growth will occur in about four to eight months, but progressive improvement will continue to take place for up to one year. Rejuvenate Medical Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for PRP therapy.

HA-based Filler

Bellafill is a hyaluronic acid (HA) based facial filler, which ensures that the patient will not require any prior allergy skin tests. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body, which helps to hold the skin structure and makes it appear smooth, plump, and healthy. Due to aging and other factors, the natural HA levels can reduce in the body, causing the skin to sag.

Bellafill soft tissue filler gel med spa injections can be used to replenish HA directly in the deeper layers of the skin. The gel instantly adds volume to the depleted areas, fills the depressions, and helps to create a smoother and fuller skin surface. It provides a safe, quick and comfortable way to restore a healthy glow to the face and refresh the skin.      

Benefits

Bellafill dermal filler is formulated with microspheres of a biocompatiable synthetic known as PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate). The filler gel transports collagen into the deeper layers of the facial skin to create sustainable and natural looking results. Laugh lines or facial wrinkles around the mouth can be diminished most effectively with Bellafill.

Two major benefits of Bellafill include:

  • Immediate improvement to the appearance of the skin as the filler gel smoothens unwanted wrinkles and lines on the face by filling in the depressions.
  • Long-term improvement because the PMMA microspheres help to stimulate the production of fresh collagen, while creating a lasting structural framework within the skin to strengthen the sub-dermal layers.

Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and nearby areas for Bellafill dermal filler injections.  

Procedure

Bellafill filler gel includes lidocaine, which means that separate application of a local anesthetic will not be necessary. The treatment provider will administer the filler injections directly into the targeted areas. The filler is most appropriate for the correction of nasolabial folds, often called as laugh lines or smile lines. The injection procedure can be performed in-office in a single, brief visit.

Patients should note that although Bellafill is a non-surgical procedure, but the dermal filler injections should be performed with proper skill and care. If incorrectly administered, the injections can trigger unsightly and unnatural results. A respectable provider will be able to create natural, long lasting, customized outcomes with Bellafill.
