Patients suffering from hair loss can also receive innovative laser based hair restoration solutions at the med spa. Dr. Farah receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and surrounding areas for a variety of aesthetic concerns that can be treated with non-surgical solutions.

What is Laser Hair Restoration LLLT?

LLLT is Low Level Laser Therapy, which is a proven, non-surgical, painless treatment for men and women who suffering from hair loss. The treatment is highly safe, does not involve any pills or special medications, and there is no mandatory recovery period associated with it. The low level lasers used in the LLLT technique do not emit any heat, sound or vibration, and as a result they involve no risk of tissue burning, tissue injury or other side effects.

Bio-Stimulation Laser

Rejuvenate Medical Spa is equipped with a state of the art technology called the Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation Laser. This in-office treatment system involves low level laser energy technique. Patients at Dr. Farah’s med spa can receive safe and convenient hair restoration treatment, while they sit and relax beneath the device.

Patients in and around Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, and Calabasas, CA, who are looking for painless and non-invasive solutions to address their hair loss or hair thinning concerns, may consider Sunetics Laser treatment at Rejuvenate. Some of the recent medical anti-aging studies have shown that LLLT treatment with Sunetics Laser achieves more effective results over a shorter period of time compared to other similar treatment systems.

Cleared by the FDA

Sunetics Laser technology, designed for treatment of male and female pattern hair loss has been cleared by the FDA in June, 2013. Clinical trials conducted to receive FDA clearance showed that 93 percent of participants treated with low level laser therapy experienced re-growth of hair at an average of 22 hairs per square centimeter.

The treatment has demonstrated effective outcomes in stabilizing hair loss over the entire scalp. Hair re-growth with this treatment is achieved in both the frontal as well as the temporal areas of the scalp, where standard drugs such as Propecia and Rogaine may be less effective.

Key Benefits

LLLT provides the following clinically proven benefits for most patients:

  • Speeds up the growth of hair and produces hair re-growth in 93 percent of the patients.
  • Improves blood flow from the dermis to the root of the hair follicle.
  • Causes stimulation of up to 70 percent of passive hairs back into the active growth cycle.
  • Halts the hair loss progression.
  • Improves the strength and elasticity of hair.
  • Allows for hair follicle augmentation, providing patients with thicker, fuller, softer, and shinier hair.
  • Leads to repair and improvement in hair shaft quality.

Most effective outcomes with LLLT, as with most other non-surgical hair loss treatments, can be achieved with consistent and continuous treatments to maintain the improvement. Rejuvenate Medical Spa may recommend maintenance treatments of up to once per week, depending on the patient’s needs.

Removal of Unwanted Hair

Apart from the latest, proven anti-aging treatments for the skin, Rejuvenate also specializes in laser based procedures for the removal of unwanted hair. A clean, smooth and hairless skin can be an important part of physical aesthetics. However, the challenge with hair removal is that traditional treatments can be painful and cause discomfort.

Furthermore, the results may not last for very long, and the treatment may have to be repeated often to maintain an attractive looking skin. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other areas who are dissatisfied with traditional procedures such as waxing, tweezing and shaving to remove unwanted hair, may choose the option of laser assisted hair removal at Rejuvenate.

Advantages

Laser hair removal has emerged as a popular aesthetic procedure in the United States. The treatment involves focusing of highly concentrated beams of laser into the targeted hair follicles. The sharp light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles, causing their precise destruction with no harm to healthy, surrounding skin. Common areas in the body for laser hair removal include arms, legs, face, underarms, and bikini line.

Some of the key benefits of laser hair removal are listed as follows:

Targeted and Long-lasting Results: Advanced laser equipment can help achieve very precise results. The laser beam destroys the follicle right from its root to ensure long-lasting outcomes. Due to the high precision capabilities of laser equipment, it is possible to achieve targeted results without causing collateral damage to surrounding skin.

Convenience and Speed: Unlike many traditional anti-aging and hair removal treatments, laser hair removal at a recognized medical spa can be performed with efficiency and speed. Every single pulse of laser can treat several hairs at the same time within a fraction of a second. Small sized areas such as upper lip may be treated in under a minute, and large sized areas such as the legs or back may take nearly one hour.

Highly Predictable Outcomes: Nearly nine out of ten patients will experience permanent or long-term hair loss after about three to five treatment sessions. This high success rate makes laser hair removal the treatment of choice for a large number of patients in the U.S.

Preparation and Procedure

Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, or other places who are planning to receive laser hair removal treatment should limit or avoid traditional treatments such as waxing, plucking, and electrolysis for a period of at least six weeks prior to the treatment. Direct sun exposure should be avoided for about six weeks before and after the procedure.

Prior the treatment, the laser expert at the med spa will trim the targeted hair to a few millimeters in the length. The laser equipment will be adjusted to match with the thickness, color, type and location of hair in order to achieve customized results. Outer layers of the skin will be protected from laser with the application of a cold gel or a special cooling device. At first, a small area will be treated to determine the response and make any adjustments to the laser settings, if necessary.

Once the procedure is completed, the patient may be provided with ice packs, cold water, or anti-inflammatory lotion or cream to subside any discomfort. Multiple treatment sessions will have to be scheduled within a space of four to six weeks.

Recovery

For one or two days after the treatment, the treated area may appear as if it has been sunburned. Moisturizers and cool compresses may be used during this period. Makeup on the face and other parts should be avoided for a day or two. The treated hair will fall out over a period of one month or so. It is important to wear a sunscreen for at least a month following laser hair removal treatment.

 

One of the first things we ask a new client is, “How often do you cleanse your face? What product do you use to cleanse? Do you use your hands to do the actual washing?”

Exfoliation (the getting rid of dead skin cells) is a crucial step in any skin care program. Individuals with any skin type, especially oily and mature, need to exfoliate daily. The easiest way to exfoliate your skin is by using a washcloth with a high quality cleanser, twice a day. SkinCeuticals has cleansers to match each skin type. We like to use Simply Clean, which refines pores and controls oil production.

If dead skin cells are not properly removed, the stratum corneum, which is the outermost layer of your skin will thicken. The thick layer of dead cells that builds up on skin that is not regularly exfoliated, prevents your skin care products from penetrating your skin and providing maximum benefits.

Dead cell build-up leads to many easily solved problems:

• dehydration
• poor oxidation
• sluggish circulation
• formation of blemishes
• rough, unevenly-textured skin
• pale or grey skin tone

What Happens to Dead Skin Cells after they are formed?
The skin is constantly regenerating. The basal layer of the epidermis generates skin cells and gives them their color. This is a continual process which takes about 28 days. As new cells are generated, the previously generated cells are pushed up toward the surface where they usually just sit if not exfoliated. This problem is compounded as we age, since the generation of cells is less efficient. The result of this buildup of dead cells is dull, flat-looking skin that has lost its vitality and glow.

Other ways to exfoliate more deeply…

The other most popular and effective way to exfoliate is by using chemical peels. Chemicals peels can effectively remove a maximum amount of dead skin cells without using friction. The two most popular products used in peels are alpha-hydroxy acid and salicylic acid.

At Rejuvenate Medical Spa we offer a full range of chemical peels from the gentlest to deeper peels which can tackle bigger problems such as hyper-pigmentation and acne. Please come in for a free skin analysis and we can decide which peel is right for you. Some of our favorite peels include the popular ViPeel, SkinCeuticals Gel Peels and Cosmelan for hyper pigmentation.
