 Your Hair Replacement Medical Clinic in the Woodland Hills, CA area


Hair loss and hair thinning are common concerns for both men and women. However, advanced and innovative laser-based technologies are now available to stimulate hair re-growth and address the problem of hair loss. Rejuvenate Medical Spa is a state of the art facility providing various aesthetic and anti-aging procedures, including hair restoration.

Rejuvenate has served the Woodland Hills, CA area and other locations for cutting edge cosmetic solutions for the last nine years. The med spa is led by Dr. Bijan Farah, an eminent physician with board certification in Internal and Emergency Medicine, and experience in the field spanning over 35 years. Rejuvenate medical spa receives patients from Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas.

About Dr. Farah

Dr. Bijan Farah is the founder and medical director of Rejuvenate Medical Spa. For the last 12 years, Dr. Farah has been practicing aesthetic dermatology, while combining his extensive experience in medicine to achieve safe, desirable and sustainable results for every patient. Rejuvenate is equipped with the latest technologies to address cosmetic issues related to the body and face.

Dr. Farah’s goal is to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals using non-invasive or minimally invasive treatments. Even for hair restoration, while aggressive surgical techniques are available today, Dr. Farah adopts an innovative, mild laser based solution to stimulate the growth of new hair. Patients in Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive hair replacement and other procedures at the med spa.

Low-level Laser Treatment at Rejuvenate

Rejuvenate Medical Spa has introduced the proven and advanced Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation Laser technology for hair re-growth. This in-office treatment system involves the delivery of low-intensity lasers to achieve hair restoration in a safe, convenient and non-surgical way. The patient can simply sit and relax below the laser device and receive a pain free treatment experience.

Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation does not involve any downtime, and is ideal for busy and working men and women. Both male and female pattern hair loss and hair thinning can be addressed with this technique. The effectiveness of Sunetics laser treatment has been a subject of medical studies. The results of the studies show that low-level laser therapy with this technology can produce more dramatic results over a shorter period of time as compared to any other low-energy laser device.

Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

LLLT is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment to reverse the condition of hair loss in both men and women. The low level lasers are called “cold” lasers or “soft” lasers because they do not emit any heat, sound or vibration. While surgical lasers can cause burns to the healthy tissue, the low-level lasers do not generate enough heat that could damage or injure healthy tissue.

The low-level lasers are designed to stimulate the blood flow in the targeted area of the scalp. An appropriate wavelength of laser light is used to achieve highly precise and customized results. The therapy promotes cell activity and enables the delivery of more nutrients to the hair follicles, resulting in improved hair growth.

By stimulating the blood supply in the scalp with the appropriate wavelength of light, laser hair restoration therapy enhances cell activity and allows for more nutrients to reach the hair follicles, improving hair growth. Because of its additional skin repairing properties, LLLT may also be used to aid healing of the scalp after hair transplant surgery.

Botox Treatment

Botox is the world’s most popular non-surgical anti-aging treatment for the face that has been approved by the FDA. This injectable treatment is designed to reduce facial wrinkles and lines on the forehead, between the eyes, and around the base of the nose. In 2013, the FDA additionally approved Botox for the treatment of crow’s feet lines at the corners of the eyes. As a leading Botox medical spa, Rejuvenate has an excellent track record of success with this procedure.

Botox is based on botulinum toxin type A, which is a powerful biological agent aimed at relaxing the wrinkle-forming muscles on the face for a temporary period. The neurotoxin is delivered directly into the targeted facial muscles through fine needles administered by an expert provider at Rejuvenate med spa. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive Botox injections at Rejuvenate.

Specific Areas of Treatment

Botox can be used effectively to treat wrinkles and lines around the following parts of the face:


Muscular movement and facial expression can cause dynamic wrinkles around the eyes. These wrinkles respond very well to Botox treatment. The treatment only impacts the targeted muscles, and does not affect the nerves. Therefore, the patient will continue to feel natural and not suffer from any loss of sensation in the treated area.


Moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows can be treated very effectively with Botox. Men who are bothered by the appearance of deep furrows between the brows can also benefit from this treatment.


Lines and wrinkles on the forehead can make the face appear old or haggard. Botox is particularly beneficial in treating the horizontal wrinkles that form on the forehead.


Jaw contouring is a recently discovered benefit of Botox. The injectable solution can treat muscles of the jaw that are used for chewing. Patients with square shaped face can achieve an oval shaped facial appearance with the help of Botox treatment.

Radiesse Dermal Filler 

radiesse-handRadiesse has been one of the popular facial fillers designed to reduce facial wrinkles, creases, and lines with an injectable anti-aging procedure. Recently, the FDA has approved Radiesse also for the wrinkle reduction in the dorsum of the hands. Loose skin and loss of volume in the hands can make them appear old, wrinkled, and unsightly.

Radiesse injections can be used in a targeted manner in the affected areas of the skin to reverse this condition and restore a more youthful appearance of the hands. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a leading provider of Radiesse and other dermal filler treatments. The med spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and surrounding communities.

Proven Results

Radiesse is a unique dermal filler that is based on calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) micro crystals. This gel-based filler is seen to have a volumizing effect on the sagging skin in the face as well as hands, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Results with Radiesse can last up to 12 months or even more in some cases.

A controlled and randomized clinical trial in the US was conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of Radiesse on the hands. The evaluators in the trial reported that the appearance of both hands was improved with Radiesse in 75% of the treated patients at the end of three months.

Among the treated patients, 98% reported improvement in their hand appearance at three months. The trial involved measurements on the Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale (GAIS). The results of the trial were correlated with clinical improvement in the study, and all primary and secondary endpoints were fulfilled.

High Safety with Radiesse

When Radiesse was tested for hand rejuvenation, the adverse events reported during the testing were mostly related to reactions on the injection site. These included swelling, redness, pain, and bruising in the treated areas. The pain and swelling was typically found to be mild to moderate, and no treatment was required to treat these temporary effects.

Any serious device related adverse events were not reported during the testing. However, despite the high safety characteristics of Radiesse, it is important to choose a qualified and reputed medical spa for this procedure for best results. Dr. Farah receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations at Rejuvenate med spa for Radiesse and other dermal filler treatments.

How does Radiesse Work?

Radiesse gel consists of tiny microspheres that are suspended in the solution. The primary active ingredient in the gel is CaHA, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Therefore, no advance allergy tests are needed for Radiesse treatment. Following the injectable treatment with Radiesse gel, the patient can notice significant improvement in the treated area in terms of diminishing signs of aging.

Natural collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin is stimulated, which leads to the development of fresh tissue for sustainable results. The procedure on both hands can be completed in about half an hour.

Laser Spider Vein Removal

Laser Spider Vein Removal Sherman Oaks | San Fernando | Calabasas, CASpider veins are small blue, red, and purple intertwined veins that are easily visible through the skin. They are generally visible on the legs and the face. Both men and women, who otherwise may have perfectly flawless skin, might be victims to these unsightly twisted veins under the skin.

What causes spider veins?

There are many causes and conditions that lead to spider veins, some of them being heredity, hormonal influences, obesity, occupations that involve long hours of standing, amongst others. But the good news is that it is treatable and people suffering from spider veins have a perfectly good chance of recovering from it.

Spider vein removal treatment

The spider vein removal treatment is a non-invasive procedure. It constitutes of pulses of laser emissions to the affected veins which are absorbed by the red blood cells in them. The heat from the laser then causes the affected veins to close, making them disappear from the surface of the skin. The treatment may have some side-effects that might include redness, itching, and swelling and may differ from person to person. The doctor administering the treatment will be able to give medications, if necessary, to keep the side-effects in check. After the treatment the spider veins may fade or disappear completely. Sometimes they do reappear after several months, but it mostly depends on the severity of the condition and other issues relating to the patient’s medical history.

A revolutionary treatment to get rid of spider veins

Some clinics and medical spas like the Rejuvenate Medical Spa in Encino, CA are now using a technology known as the Sciton Profile. Sciton Profile is the leading spider vein removal laser machine available in the market today.  It provides safe, gentle, and fast treatment and the results can be seen in as little as two sessions. The built-in cooling mechanism in the Sciton profile makes sure that no anaesthetics are required for the treatment. Since the treatment is non-invasive, fast, and painless there is no downtime to it. One can undergo the treatment and leave for home or return to work immediately. A brief consultation with Dr. Bijan Farah, MD of the Rejuvenate Medical Spa will give one an idea of the number of treatments that are required in their case.

What to expect while undergoing a Sciton Profile laser treatment

Like in any other laser treatment, the patient receives protective goggles to protect the eyes from the laser pulses. During the procedure one might feel a warming sensation in the area where the treatment is being administered. The warming sensation should not raise much concern as the cooling mechanism in the Sciton profile takes care of it. There might be some visible redness immediately after the treatment which subsides within an hour or so.

Where to get the spider veins treated

As mentioned earlier, spider veins can be easily treated with laser techniques without a lot of side-effects. It is comparatively an easier skin treatment to follow through given that you choose and consult a doctor who is trained and skilled in laser procedures. Medical spas make the treatment feel more like an experience rather than a scheduled procedure. Rejuvenate Medical Spa makes sure that the procedure is executed in a sterile medical environment under the direct supervision of a trained professional.

Botox Injections

Botox Before & After Photos

Botox Before & After Photos

Botox was first used in cosmetic treatment to treat frown lines between eyebrows, but since then it has evolved to treat and correct many more conditions other than just frown lines. With more and more people becoming conscious of their body and health conditions the surge in the demand of Botox treatment has been phenomenal. But do we have a steady supply of good doctors with the right credentials who can actually do justice to the treatment?

What the does the treatment consist of?

The treatment involves injecting small, diluted amounts of Botox to certain facial muscles in a way to soften lines that have been caused due to excessive muscle action. Frowns and laugh lines are good examples of the same. What is really important here is to understand that the amount of Botox to be injected and the location should be monitored very carefully. Botox in high doses can be fatal, if the dose is too small it might not work properly, and if it is not injected in the specified area the results can be disastrous. Here comes the need for a doctor with the right credentials who knows how to carry out the treatment effectively and efficiently. Plastic surgeons, occuloplastic surgeons, and dermatologists who have been properly trained and are board-certified are the best people to go to for a Botox treatment.

Are medical spas good for Botox treatments?

Medical spas like the Rejuvenate Medical Spa offer Botox treatments among their other boutique services. Special treatments like fractional laser skin surfacing, permanent makeup, acne treatments are offered in most of the med spas. With anti-aging treatments on a rise, Botox is sought after by both men and women of all ages, and is a highly-demanded treatment method. Medical spas which are monitored by accredited doctors give one the feeling of getting rejuvenated rather than getting something treated.

How does an accredited doctor do the job better?

A doctor who has undergone training of how to administer Botox does not only know how to carry out the treatment but also has knowledge of the action of the treatment. Doctors with credentials study the health history of the concerned patients and take into account the side-effects that can occur post- treatment. It is important to have a good idea of the patient’s medical history as different people react differently to the same treatment. A novice specialist might carry out the procedure without a hitch but might not be well-prepared to deal with the repercussions. Botox, though not a surgical process, requires a good amount of training and knowledge of the process and the procedure.

How to choose the right doctor for Botox treatments?

One can be assured that the doctors who are members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) have detailed knowledge about facial anatomy. They make more informed decisions regarding aesthetic plastic surgery and their follow-up routine and medication. ASAPS members also make sure that they administer safe and high-quality procedures to the patients thus giving them more natural-looking results. ASAPS is made up of nearly 2600 plastic surgeons, one of whom is Dr. Bijan Farah who is the Medical Director of Rejuvenate Medical Spa.

The face not only is central in expression of emotion but also is a central organ of sense. There is nothing wrong in trying to keep it looking young and beautiful, but one should always be mindful of the fact as to who is performing the treatment.

Derma Fillers at Rejuvenate Med Spa

Facial Fillers | Dermal Fillers | Injectables | San Fernando | Calabasas CACosmetic facial fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical anti-aging treatments today in the U.S. Millions of injectable dermal filler procedures are performed every year to reduce wrinkles, lines, and folds from the facial skin. However, it is important that this procedure should be performed at a reputed med spa facility, which has experienced and skilled treatment providers for this procedure.

One of the leading providers of soft tissue filler treatments is Rejuvenate Medical Spa, which is led by Dr. Bijan Farah. State of the art filler treatments using FDA approved dermal fillers are available at the facility. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive treatments at Rejuvenate.

Juvederm Voluma

Juvederm Voluma is the first dermal filler approved by the FDA specifically for adding volume to the cheek area. This anti-aging filler from Allergan, Inc. can replenish lost volume and restore the youthful curve to the cheeks and improve overall facial contour. No other filler can achieve the kind of “lift” that this filler can provide to sagging facial skin.

Results with Juvederm Voluma are visible almost instantly, as the face appears fuller and rounder. This is one of the longest lasting fillers, and results with a single treatment can be maintained for as long as two years. Rejuvenate Medical Spa is one of the first facilities in the area to offer Juvederm Voluma to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other communities.

Another variant is Juvederm Ultra XC, which is an injectable treatment to address the appearance of nasolabial folds and other facial wrinkles. This unique filler is based on HYLACROSS technology, which provides it the smooth gel structure that can hold up for a long time.


Restylane is another premier dermal filler treatment provided at Rejuvenate med spa. Restylane facial filler is based on hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance designed to hold the skin firm and tight. As hyaluronic acid depletes in the skin due to aging and other reasons, Restylane can replace it and promote instant facial skin rejuvenation.

Restylane is available in three options, which include Restylane, Restylane fine line, and Perlane. This filler has been extensively researched, studied and tested around the world. Over the last one decade, more than 10 million treatments have been performed with Restylane in 65 countries.


Radiesse has emerged as one of the popular cosmetic fillers because of its superior efficacy and long lasting results. Compared to other fillers, the results with Radiesse can last longer in many cases. Rejuvenate offers this filler to suitable candidates, who may be seeking reduction of smile lines, nasolabial folds, and other lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose.

More defined cheek bones can be achieved when Radiesse is injected in the cheek area. The filler is composed of tiny, smooth calcium compound microspheres, which promote the production of fresh collagen in the skin. This allows for a more natural looking and longer lasting finish.

How does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser Hair Removal | Non Invasive | Med Spa | Encino | Sherman Oaks CALaser hair removal is a proven, efficient, and sustainable aesthetic procedure designed to remove or reduce unwanted hair in various parts of the body. However, the outcomes with laser hair removal can vary, depending on the type of laser technology and equipment used, and the skills and experience of the laser treatment provider at the med spa.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a premier facility providing laser hair removal and other procedures. It is equipped with cutting edge laser technology to produce highly satisfying outcomes in hair removal. The laser equipment at the med spa has the capability to treat all skin types, and can achieve most efficient results in a virtually painless manner.

Rejuvenate provides laser hair removal and other aesthetic and anti-aging procedures to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and surrounding communities.

High Precision and Targeted Treatment

The key advantage with laser hair removal over traditional hair removal procedures is that the results are long lasting and highly precise. The laser beam targets the melanin or pigment in the unwanted hair follicles. The melanin absorbs the sharp light, and thereby receives intense heat energy. It destroys the follicle, and stops future hair growth.

The laser expert at the med spa will explain to the patient during initial consultation that hair grows in cycles, which means that a single laser treatment will destroy the hair which are in the current growth cycle. In order to destroy all the hair follicles during different growth cycles, the patient will need on average four to eight treatment sessions.

Each treatment session can be spaced four to six weeks apart with an aim to capture the hairs during their active growth phase. Laser hair removal experts at the Rejuvenate Medical Spa will review the unique aesthetic needs of the patient and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan. Rejuvenate receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations.

Laser Technology

Rejuvenate med spa is fitted with the Asclepion Mediostar Next laser technology. This is one of the most advanced and innovative laser hair removal machines available today. The “Gentle Gliding” technique and “Pre-Cooling” of the skin are the unique features of this technology that are designed to produce smooth and long lasting results with the least possible discomfort.


The procedure begins with the shaving of the area that needs to be treated. This is done a few days prior to the day of laser treatment. On the day of the procedure, the treatment provider may apply a local anesthetic cream on the area for patient comfort, but this is not a necessary requirement. Sometimes a gel, spray or a cool laser tip may be used to maintain patient comfort during the procedure. The choice will depend on the type of laser technique used.

The laser is adjusted for size, power, and pulse frequency to optimize the treatment. The patient is required to wear special glasses designed to protect the eyes from sharp laser light. The treatment provider will focus the laser energy on targeted hair follicles using a hand-held device. The length of a single treatment session can vary according to the size of the area to be treated.

Recent Statistics In The American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery or ASAPS

Cosmetic Surgery | Plastic Surgeon | Calabasas | San Fernando CAIn the most recent, i.e. the 18th annual statistical data report released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the figures spent on plastic surgery in the United States in the year 2013 were unraveled. It was clearly observed that Americans have spent nearly close to 12 million dollars on cosmetic or plastic surgical and non-surgical procedures.

Out of the 10 million surgical procedures that were performed in the year 2014, the cosmetic procedures that were more frequently performed from one year to the next were buttock augmentation, non-surgical fat reduction and labiaplasty.

Apart from this, it seems that more men are getting pulled into the clutches of aesthetically-enhancing cosmetic procedures, surgical and nonsurgical, showing a drastic increase in cosmetic surgery procedures over the course of the last 5 years.

Below are the top 5 most frequently performed surgical procedures for men and women in the year 2014 -
-Nose Surgery or Rhinoplasty
-Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty
-Eyelid Surgery
-Liposuction; and
-Breast Augmentation

And below are the top 5 most frequently performed non-surgical procedures for men and women in the year 2014 –
-Hair Removal
-Chemical Peel
-Hyaluronic Acid; and
-Botulinum Toxin

Some of the cosmetic procedures mentioned above, including a few other popular procedures, did decrease in frequency of performance in the year 2014, such as breast augmentation surgery, ear surgery, and injectables. Even though the public at large had reduced having cosmetic surgeries performed on them, it is very evident that men, as much as women, have been flocking to plastic surgeons to have different types of cosmetic procedures, surgical and non-surgical, done on them too. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has observed that the percentage of men getting surgical and non-surgical procedures performed on them had gone up by 43% in the year 2014.

The ASAPS also observed the increases and decreases in percentages of certain surgical, non-surgical and anti-aging procedures that were being opted for by men from the year 2010 to 2014. There are as follows –

Surgical Procedures:

-Male Breast Reduction

-Facelift; and


Non-Surgical Procedures:

-Intense Pulsed Light

-Nonsurgical skin tightening

-Hyaluronic Acid; and

-Botulium Toxin

The ASAPS also observed that the number of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed on men have increased by 273% since the year 1997, based on statistical data collected and analyzed by the ASAPS. And it is believed that this trend is only going to go upward rather than downward in the future. These days, men want to look handsome and youthful just as much as the women because they feel that they exuberate a better personality and higher energy levels when they look good. Looking good amounts to feeling good too – according to the accomplished plastic surgeons of the ASAPS.

The ASAPS is made up of nearly 2600 plastic surgeons, one of whom is Dr. Bijan Farah who heads the Rejuvenate Medical Spa located at 17130 Ventura Blvd. Encino, CA 91316. He and his team of professional experts perform state-of-the-art and innovative aesthetic cosmetic procedures using modern technology.
