About Non-Surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation

Vaginal Rejuvenation | IntimaLase | Non Surgical | Calabasas CAVaginal Rejuvenation | IntimaLase | Non Surgical | Calabasas CAA growing number of women are keen to enhance their sexual aesthetics today in the US. Rejuvenate Medical Spa is one of the premier non-surgical treatment providers for a wide range of anti-aging and aesthetic solutions, including non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. The med spa is led by Dr. Bijan Farah, who is a board certified doctor in Internet Medicine, and has nearly four decades of experience in the field.

Dr. Farah’s medical spa is equipped with innovative laser technologies to provide vaginal rejuvenation without surgery to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and surrounding communities.

Vaginal Relaxation Syndrome

Vaginal relaxation syndrome (VRS) condition refers to the excessive stretching and subsequent loosening of the vaginal tissue and muscles. Apart from aging factors, this condition may also occur following childbirth. The physiological as well as psychological impact of VRS may include reduced sexual satisfaction among the patient as well as her sexual partner.

Surgical treatments are available to address the symptoms of VRS, but many women are keen to avoid a complicated and lengthy surgical process. For such patients, Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides state of the art non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatments.

Laser Vaginal Tightening

Among various aesthetic gynecological therapies available today, laser vaginal tightening (LVT) has emerged as a safe, proven and advanced non-surgical treatment to rejuvenate the vagina. It is an effective anti-aging solution for women who are affected by VRS. Rejuvenate Medical Spa is equipped to provide advanced laser treatment to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations.

The med spa is fitted with an advanced Laser Vaginal Tightening System called Fotona’s IntimaLase. This technology ensures that a patient can receive vaginal tightening without any incisions. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis. There is no downtime involved, and patients can go back to their regular activities or work immediately after treatment.

How does it Work?

IntimaLase technology makes use of the photo-thermal power of Fotona’s non-ablative 2940 Er:YAG laser. Focused laser beams in the affected areas penetrate into the deeper layers to promote natural collagen production in the vaginal mucosa tissue and collagen-rich endopelvic fascia. This allows for naturally induced tightening and strengthening of the walls of the vaginal canal.

This is a proprietory “smooth mode” technology that stimulates the vaginal tissue thermally. It is designed to cause collagen remodeling and neo-genesis without resulting in any damage to the surrounding healthy tissue or triggering complications that may be associated with more invasive LVT alternatives such as CO2 laser.

Proven Effectiveness

The effectiveness of the IntimaLase technology has been proven in various clinical trials and extensive patient and doctor feedback. Patient satisfaction rates with this technology are as high as 97 percent. In clinical trials, just two treatment sessions of IntimaLase have demonstrated consistent results in terms of tightening of the vaginal canal and enhancement in the level of patients’ sexual satisfaction.

Dr. Farah will discuss all aspects of LVT treatment during the initial consultation, and evaluate various treatment options. His goal is to ensure that the patient makes a confident and well-informed choice about the treatment to achieve high satisfaction levels in the end.

Laser Hair Removal | Electrolysis | Encino | Sherman Oaks | Calabasas, CA Electrolysis versus Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal and electrolysis are both long-term solutions to reducing unwanted hair from any part of the body. Unsightly hair growth can cause aesthetic concerns to many people, and it can be confusing for an individual to determine the best treatment option in their case.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a state of the art facility providing anti-aging, aesthetic, skin care and hair removal procedures. The med spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and surrounding areas. The aesthetic experts at Rejuvenate will explain the pros and cons of various treatment options to help the patient make the right choices.

Skin and Hair Color

One of the key differences between laser hair removal and electrolysis treatment options is that each treatment may be more suited for a particular skin and hair color. The medical spa may recommend laser hair removal treatment for patients with light colored skin and dark hair. The laser beam will naturally target the pigmentation or the dark color. Therefore, the dark hair will be eliminated most effectively because it will have maximum absorption of laser energy.

However, if the skin is dark it can get burned with laser. Sometimes a combination of laser and radiofrequency may be used to overcome this limitation of skin and hair color. Electrolysis, on the other hand, can be used by any person irrespective of their hair or skin color. This technique focuses directly on the hair follicle, and not the pigmentation, which makes it largely free of color limitations.

Treatment Sessions

Rejuvenate med spa aims to provide the most efficient and convenient solutions for skin care, anti-aging and hair removal. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive state of the art treatments at the facility. Laser hair removal treatments are typically faster and require fewer treatment sessions to achieve the desired results.

For instance, a laser hair removal treatment for eyebrows may take about 15 minutes for a single session. A total of four to six sessions, spaced about a month apart, may produce the optimal hair reduction outcomes. However, in case of electrolysis, each hair follicle must be treated individually, which can be longer procedure. A single treatment session for eyebrows may last between 15 and 30 minutes, and the number of sessions required may be significantly higher than in the case of laser.

Pain and Discomfort

Pain and discomfort in case of both laser hair removal and electrolysis can vary from one patient to another, depending on their pain tolerance and the area of treatment. Laser treatment will usually produce a heat sensation and the feeling of a rubber band snapping against the skin.

If the hair quality is coarse, the patient may feel more of a burning sensation. Therefore, a man may feel a stronger sensation in the beard and moustache area compared to what a woman would feel in the lips, chin, or cheeks. Electrolysis typically involves a stinging or pricking sensation in each individual follicle during the treatment.

Laser Hair Removal Results | Melanin | San Fernando | Calabasas | CA How long does Laser Hair Removal last?

Laser hair removal is one of the most effective techniques to get rid of unwanted hair from any part of the body. Rejuvenate Medical Spa is equipped to provide state of the art laser hair removal solutions to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby areas. The med spa is led by Dr. Bijan Farah, who has almost 40 years of experience in the field of medicine. Under his guidance, Rejuvenate provides a complete range of anti-aging, skin care, and other aesthetic procedures.

Long Lasting Results

Laser hair removal has emerged as a highly popular procedure because the results with this technique are long lasting. Many people call it permanent hair removal, even though ‘permanent’ is a bit of a misnomer in this procedure. However, with multiple treatment sessions as recommended by the med spa experts, it is possible to achieve marked reduction in hair and delay of hair regrowth for a fairly long period. Maintenance treatments may be taken every six months to a year to prolong the effects.

At Rejuvenate Medical Spa, the laser hair removal experts will explain all aspects of the procedure clearly during the initial consultation. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other communities who may be looking for hair removal, anti-aging, or other treatments can make an informed decision after the consultation. In case of laser hair removal, the laser beam directly penetrates into the individual hair follicle underneath the skin, causing its permanent destruction. However, some of the hair may eventually grow back, which can be treated with annual or semi-annual minor maintenance procedures.

Facts about Permanency

Results of the studies reported by the highly reputed Mayo Clinic state that it is possible to reduce unwanted hair by up to 90 percent during the course of the treatment, provided the right candidate is chosen for the procedure. Top experts at Mayo Clinic and other scientific institutions suggest that longest lasting outcomes with laser hair removal will require six to eight treatments, spread over a period of several months.

When the laser hair removal sessions are performed consistently, long term hair removal will occur. However, some patients may experience re-growth of hair in the treated areas once they stop treatment. But even in such cases, the new hair growth will be lighter, thinner and much less conspicuous. Skin and hair type are going to be key factors in determining whether a patient is a terrific and poignant candidate for laser hair removal, and what kind of lasting outcomes can be expected in his or her case.

Stellar Candidates

Laser hair removal candidates who can expect to achieve the longest lasting and most effective results are typically people with lighter skin and dark hair. When the hair follicle has a higher concentration of melanin pigment, which results in darker hair, it allows for the absorption of the maximum amount of laser light. Therefore, a comprehensive disintegration of the targeted hair follicle can be achieved in cases where the hair pigment is darker, while the surrounding skin does not have melanin in it.

Anti-Aging Fillers | Derma Fillers | Encino | Sherman Oaks | CalabasasHow Long do Anti-aging Derma Fillers Last

Perhaps the most effective method to fight the signs of aging including wrinkles, fine lines, hollowed out appearance of the face and derma fillers are natural or synthetic material that are injected into the target location for an instant effect. It is different from Botox but can be used in conjunction with it for best results. However, it is important for you to gather correct information and clear your doubts regarding the procedure before going for it.

How do they work – explained by med spa experts

The effects of derma fillers can last anywhere from two months to two years depending on many factors including the kind of derma filler used, your skin type,  skin care regime and the aging process on your skin. It is important to have a dialogue with your doctor so as to be aware of the results that you can expect to ensure there is no misunderstanding or dissatisfaction.

Anti-Aging | Med Spa | Encino | Sherman Oaks | San Fernando Derma Fillers Before and After Photos

The face is a person’s most noticeable body part. Unfortunately, it is also most susceptible to the ill effects of aging due to the sensitivity of facial skin in comparison to skin on any other part of the body. Many age-related changes can mar the beauty of the visage including fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet and baggy, sagging skin. Not only does this take away the radiance from your face, but can also mar your confidence.

What are derma fillers

The most effective solution to get the skin of your youth is the derma filler. While many misleading advertisements on television and print promise cosmetic creams and lotions that promise to take away wrinkles and loose skin, they cannot provide you with the results that derma fillers can. Not to be confused with Botox, Derma Fillers involve the filling of a naturally derived or synthetically prepared solution that is injected right under the target skin area. This could be the saggy corners of the nose or loose folds of skin around the mouth or hollowed out areas of the cheek and jawline that are then filled up to the point where the skin is no longer loose, but is tighter and more youthful looking.

According to expert surgeon Dr Bijan Farah who practices in various locations including Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas and CA for best and most youthful looking results, a combination of Botox and derma fillers can be used.

Get the treatment at a med spa

This procedure is one of the best investments that you can make for yourself; however it is a decision that must be taken with care and deliberation. It is important to find a doctor who has the relevant experience in this area and who can suggest the best kind of derma filler that will suit your skin type from the many that are available in the market.

The effects of these fillers can last from a few months to up to two years depending on your skin care, skin type, aging process and other lifestyle factors. While there is no ‘best’derma filler, it is important for you to research and understand the kind of derma filler that you are going to be using.

Derma fillers can not only be used to restore the appearance of fullness and suppleness to your skin, but also helps in reducing the visibility of scars and wrinkles. To help you make the decision, it is a good idea to ask your doctor all questions and doubts you may have about the procedure.

Make an investment in yourself and restore a youthful look to your most precious feature – your face. Before you opt for the procedure it is important to have realistic expectations of the results and confidence in your doctor as well. This procedure is one effective way to fight the eroding effects and signs of aging to preserve that bright, natural and youthful look that you deserve.

Derma fillers are an effective anti-aging treatment to reduce lines and wrinkles from the face without surgery. A variety of injectable facial fillers have been approved by the FDA for specific aesthetic purposes. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a premier provider of various safe, proven, and FDA approved filler injections.

During the initial consultation, Dr. Farah or his expert treatment providers will discuss various aspects of derma fillers, including their estimated costs. The goal is to ensure that the patient can make the best possible informed choices. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive non-surgical aesthetic treatments, including injectable fillers, at Rejuvenate Med Spa.

Cost Comparison with Surgery

For some people, the prohibitive costs of plastic surgery may prove to be a deterrent even if they are keen to reduce the signs of aging from the face. A procedure such as facelift may cost several thousand dollars, and involve a significant amount of downtime as well. In most cases, the cost of such cosmetic surgeries is not covered by health insurance.

For patients who are reluctant to spend a substantial amount of money on an elective surgery for facial rejuvenation may consider dermal fillers as a much more cost-effective treatment alternative. The total cost of a derma filler treatment will only be a fraction of what an average facelift surgery would cost. The benefits of surgery are longer lasting, but with derma fillers, it is possible to repeat treatments in the future to prolong the effects.

Cost Variations

The cost of anti-aging derma fillers can vary because several hyaluronic acid based, synthetic based, and collagen based fillers are available in the market. The cost of each type of filler inject will differ. Furthermore, the patients may require treatments in different volumes, and the surface area to be treated will also differ in case of each patient. Some patients may opt for a series of treatment sessions stretched over a period of time for longer lasting results.

The location of the medical spa can also make a difference to the cost because the average cost of living will be different in different areas. For instance, the average cost of treatment at a med spa in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations will be different from the average cost of the same treatment in, say, Oklahoma City.

Cost Consideration

In case of a Hyaluronic acid based derma filler such as Juvederm XC Ultra, the average cost of treatment will range from $500 to $700 per syringe. If the patient chooses Juvederm XC Ultra Plus, the cost may go up slightly. In case of Restylane wrinkle filler injections, the cost may range from $450 to $800 per syringe.

If the medical spa is running a special promotion program or the manufacturer is offering a rebate for a fixed period, the patient may be able to receive the treatment at a lower cost. When the treatment is taken as a package along with other treatments, the med spa may be able to offer a lower price.

Medical Spa | Encino | Sherman Oaks | San Fernando | Calabasas | CADerma fillers are injectable facial fillers that are designed to reduce the signs of aging from the face without surgery. These anti-aging fillers have become increasingly popular in recent years. The fillers do not involve any downtime, and most will fill wrinkles and lines to provide a smooth skin within 30 minutes. Results with derma fillers can typically last for about four months to a year, and even more in some cases.

Some of the fillers also work effectively as skin volumizers, and help to lift and plump the cheeks, augment thin lips and add volume to the sagging facial skin. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a state of the art facility providing a range of FDA approved derma filler treatments. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive injectable fillers and other non-surgical aesthetic treatments at the med spa.

Hyaluronic Acid Based Fillers

A variety of anti-aging fillers are available to suit different aesthetic needs of patients. It is important to choose the right type of wrinkle filler and it must be administered by an expert at a reputed medical spa facility. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are the most widely used and popular category of derma fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance present in the skin that works to tighten and firm up the skin.

The derma filler with this substance in gel form is injected directly into the targeted areas of the skin to stimulate collagen production and lead to effective and sustainable outcomes. No prior allergy tests are need with Hyaluronic acid based fillers because these are highly biocompatible. Rejuvenate Med Spa provides a range of these fillers to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other areas.

Results with hyaluronic fillers can last for several months to more than a year. Some researchers suggest that repeated treatments with these fillers will promote the natural collagen production more effectively, and help reduce the wrinkles and lines more naturally. Some research evidence also indicates that less filler volume may be needed over time to achieve the same results. Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane are among the most popular Hyaluronic acid based fillers.

Synthetic Facial Fillers

A few wrinkle fillers are produced with substances fabricated in the laboratory, and having no relation with the natural ingredients in the skin. Some aesthetic experts are of the opinion that fillers in this category may provide a longer lasting effect. However, natural hyaluronic acid based fillers are still more popular because of their negligible side effects and natural looking results.

Radiesse is a leading synthetic wrinkle filler, which contains calcium hydroxylapatite particles suspended in a gel. Results with Radiesse can last for about one year. However, some researchers believe that natural collagen production may gradually occur around the micro spheres of Radiesse, which could result in longer lasting outcomes over time. The FDA has approved Radiesse for treatment of deeper facial lines, including nasolabial folds.

Another synthetic anti-aging filler is Sculptra, which contains synthetic poly-L-lactic acid. It can effectively volumize the facial skin and the results can last for up to one year. Sculptra is designed for injecting in the deeper layers of the skin below the muscles, and not for injecting into fine lines on the surface.

Who doesn’t desire a smooth, hairless body? You do have your options in the good old waxing, shaving and tweezing, but they aren’t permanent. Each one of them have their pros and cons. Don’t you feel helpless when you have a date coming up and your body hair is noticeable, but just too short to be waxed? Sure, shaving is an option, but who wants to end up with stubbly skin every second day? Tweezing isn’t even an option for all the problem areas with plenty of hair! So what do you do in such a case? Just hope that your date looks past the physical appearance or go the extra mile and opt for a laser hair removal session?

Before and after pictures can help

If you go for the latter, you might want to know how big a difference will laser hair removal make? You might also want to know if you are an ideal candidate for it. It is very essential to get the treatment done at a licensed medical spa. If you stay in and around Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando or Calabasas, CA, an appointment with certified and recognized Dr. Bijan Farah can help you understand if laser hair removal will work for you. Dr. Farah can help you make an informed decision by explaining you all about the procedure as well as sharing a few before and after pictures of the past treatments handled by him.

Follow the advise given by medical spa

Your doctor will advise you on stopping waxing or plucking hair, about six weeks before the procedure.

You will be allowed to shave as it does not take out hair from the roots, unlike waxing and tweezing. Also, you will have to avoid getting out in the sun before and after the treatment, probably for six weeks.

Once you are convinced about going ahead with the procedure, the med spa technician or doctor will first trim the hair. The strength of the laser beams will be adjusted based on your skin type, skin color and hair density. Laser hair removal was initially believed to be effective only on dark hair, but there are now options available even for people with gray or blonde hair. Your doctor will explain you that your hair goes through three phases, the first is the growing stage, the second is resting and the final being shedding.

How does  Laser Hair Removal work?

The laser beams target the hair in the first stage and destroy the melanin present inside the hair follicles. It is possible that even after the treatment, you may notice some hair left behind. You don’t have to worry about that, as the treated hair will fall out over the next two weeks. You can exfoliate your skin around the tenth day after the treatment to remove the hair gently.

Laser hair removal is a preferred option for getting rid of hair from all over the body and not just the face. You will have to go through four to six  sessions, to get the best results.
