Botox can Help Treat Depression

derma filler 144x300 Botox can Help Treat Depression Encino CABotox is arguably the most widely popular non-surgical anti-aging treatment in the world today. Ever since the Botox treatment was approved by the FDA in 2002 for cosmetic reduction of wrinkles and fine lines from certain areas of the face, it has been used by millions of patients with excellent results.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a premier provider of Botox treatments to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other areas. The med spa provides a range of latest non-invasive and minimally invasive aesthetic solutions in a state of the art, safe, and friendly environment.

New Information on Botox

Rejuvenate Medical Spa strives to remain updated with the latest advancements, innovations, and discoveries in the field of aesthetic enhancement. Dr. Farah likes to apprise his patients with relevant latest developments in the field in order to help them make well-informed choices. One of the newest discoveries about Botox has been outlined in a new book on Botox, which The New York Times has praised as the “first authorized biography” of Botox. The book looks into a unique aspect of how a traditionally aesthetic treatment could in fact be a cure for depression.

The book titled “In the Face of Emotion” suggests that up to 50 percent of all wrinkle-reduction procedures such as Botox can substantially improve moods of a person, as well as their relationships with others. Botox is a widely used injectable anti-aging procedure, which can achieve wrinkle reduction for a period of up to six months with a single treatment and make a person appear younger. The interesting new fact about Botox is that in additional to achieving a more youthful looking face, it might also make the patient become free of any signs of depression.

Relationship between Muscles and Emotions

Dr. Farah has seen in his experience with numerous patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other areas at his med spa about how a Botox treatment may help cheer up a patient more than before. Now scientists are linking this phenomenon to actual, physical reduction of facial lines and wrinkles.

Frown muscles on the forehead are response for lines and wrinkles in the area. At the same time, these are also expression lines that may express typical negative emotions of anger, distress, fear, and sadness. When a Botox treatment is applied on the frown lines, the patient cannot physically form the expressions required to portray these negative emotions. The frown causing muscles have been temporarily paralyzed, and any formation of negative expression on the forehead is rendered impossible.

Darwin’s Theory

A theory by Charles Darwin, dating back to the 17th century, suggested that facial muscles are not just responsible for the expression of emotion, but they also play a role in how a person experiences and perceives those emotions. Darwin argued that if a human being limits the illustration of such feelings, the physical response to such feelings will also reduce. In other words, if the expression of frowning can be reduced, then the feeling and experience of sadness or anger will also be reduced in turn.


Hair Loss Treatment

Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides outstanding, awesome, and cutting edge anti-aging and other non-surgical aesthetic treatments. Led by Dr. Bijan Farah, the med spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and surrounding areas. Rejuvenate also employs state of the art laser technologies to provide innovative treatments for hair loss for both men and women.

Low Level Laser Therapy

One of the safest and most effective treatments for hair restoration is Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). This is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that does not involve any pain and discomfort, and provides positive results. Both men and women who are bothered by their condition of hair loss may consider this treatment.

A low level laser refers to a ‘soft’ or ‘cold’ laser that does not emit any significant heat, sound, or vibration. While high intensity surgical lasers are designed to vaporize or burn targeted tissue, but low level lasers will not cause any aggressive tissue invasion or injury because they do not generate heat.

Convenient and Painless Treatment

Rejuvenate Medical Spa has adopted LLLT treatment approach to hair loss because of its inherent benefits of safety, convenience and comfort for the patients. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby areas can receive this advanced anti-aging treatment at the med spa under the supervision of Dr. Farah. The facility is equipped with the Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation Laser system. This is an innovative system that has perfected the low level laser emission technology, which makes hair restoration process simple and convenient.

The patient can simply sit back and relax underneath the device while the treatment is performed. The Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation is a pain-free solution for the problem of hair loss as well as hair thinning. The treatment involves no downtime, which makes it ideal for busy and working people. Medical studies have indicated that low level laser therapy with the Sunetics Laser system produce more significant results over a shorter period of time compared to any other low energy laser device.

Proven Efficacy

Sunetics laser technology received the FDA clearance in June 2013 for effective treatment for both male and female pattern hair loss. In the clinical trials conducted for FDA clearance, it showed that 93 percent of patient subjects who were treated with low level laser therapy achieved hair re-growth at an average of 22 hairs per sq. cm. LLLT has demonstrated efficacy in achieving stability and sustainability of hair over the entire scalp. It has shown proven success in the re-growth of hair in both the temporal and front areas of the scalp, where medications such as Propecia and Rogain may prove to be less effective.

Clinical tests have shown that LLLT improves blood supply from dermis to the hair follicle. It stimulates up to 70 percent of ‘resting’ hairs back into active growth cycle, stops progressive hair loss, and enhances the natural strength and elasticity of hair. Hair follicles are augmented, providing the patient with thicker, fuller, shinier, and softer hair. Hair shaft quality is also enhanced and repaired.




Artefill Wrinkle Treatment Before and After Photos

Wrinkles and blemishes are some dreaded imperfections that become inevitable with the aging process. The skin’s ability to repair itself declines with aging as the inner layer of the skin tends to thin out and the fat cells shrink to leave frown lines and crow’s feet. The repeated use of facial muscles causes fine lines near the corners of the mouth, better known as nasolabial folds. Pre-mature aging can have a negative impact on your self-esteem as you may find it difficult to accept along with the added pressure of social rejection.

In the past anti-aging dermal fillers were used to fill in the facial lines. The inconvenience of getting frequent refills makes Artefill a much sought after permanent dermal filler, which unlike the temporary fillers does not get fully absorbed into the body.

What is Artefill Wrinkle treatment?

Artefill is an aesthetic wrinkle correction procedure that tends to improve the skin texture right from the first injection. The Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) micro-spheres suspended in the bovine collagen gel are injected into the nasolabial folds or the fine lines that begin under the nose to reach the corners of the mouth. The micro-spheres trigger the production of natural collagen in the body as they continue providing a firm foundation long after they have been injected into the nasolabial folds.

A volume-less face gets an instant facelift with an Artefill Wrinkle correction treatment. PMMA with its proven safety record in treating a variety of ailments like cataracts, artificial joints, has been used for cosmetic soft tissue augmentation over a period of ten years. It is advisable to wait for six months before opting for another Artefill treatment as its effects start showing up a bit slowly as the body continues building tissue. Small dosages injected at carefully spaced intervals will bring out the best results. You can also ask your doctor to show you some before and after photos of the treatment.

After the treatment

An Artefill Wrinkle treatment at a med spa usually requires one or two sessions as it is a safe and non-invasive procedure. This in-house procedure takes an hour or two to administer as Artefill is administered in accordance with the facial fold assessment scale. A minimum grade of one requires half a syringe of Artefill whereas a grade 5 needs two syringes to be injected into the fold.

The effects of wrinkle correction can be observed right after the procedure as there is an instant facelift after the Artefill solution has been injected. A mild swelling and redness at the treatment site is quite common after you have undergone a dermal filling. A mild bruising may sometimes occur at the injection site which is typically found to disappear within three to seven days.   To prevent any allergic reactions after an Artefill treatment, it is advisable to undergo an allergy test for hypersensitivity to collagen implants or lidocaine in a medical spa.

The anti-aging effect that an Artefill treatment has over the skin is as remarkable as the underlying wrinkle correction process. Patients with a history of allergies to collagen products and anaphylaxis must refrain from Artefill treatment. Artefill must not be used in and around the mouth or for lip augmentation. The results of an Artefill wrinkle treatment are permanent and surgical intervention is the only solution to remove collagen for the reversal of the procedure. It is highly advisable to seek the services of a Board registered experienced physician like Dr. Bijan Farah. If you live in or around Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, you can easily get an appointment from him.

Artefill Wrinkle Treatment Cost

Artefill Wrinkle Treatment Reduce Wrinkles and Aging before and after photos Artefill Wrinkle Treatment Cost Encino CAArtefill has been around since the past ten years under the brand name of Artecoll in the Canadian and European cosmetic dermal fillers market. The only permanent dermal filler to be approved in the US, Artefill contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic that lessens the discomfort while administering the injections. The cost of Artefill anti-aging treatment at a med spa depends on a myriad of factors ranging from the cosmetic goals of the procedure to the injecting expertise of the physician.

FDA approved dermal filler

Artefill has the distinct reputation of being the only FDA approved permanent dermal filler. The approval came through in October, 2006 after a series of clinical trials conducted at medical centers spread across the nation. The trials that spanned over 12 months came up with results that showed a remarkably longer duration of wrinkle correction with Artefill as opposed to the temporary dermal fillers.

The follow up studies at regular intervals of six months and later after a year showed prolonged as well as safe wrinkle correction. A follow up of this study completed 5 years to prove the long term efficacy of Artefill. Since then Artefill has become the official permanent nonabsorbent wrinkle filler.

The Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) micro-spheres suspended in the bovine collagen gel do not get absorbed by the body. The solution is injected just above the skin’s fat layer with a fine needle and the quantity used depends on the depth of the wrinkles. The appropriate amount to be injected is decided by the Board certified physician at a medical spa.

How much will Artefill wrinkle treatment cost?

Artefill Wrinkle treatment makes use of Artefill solution that is nature identical with PMMA micro-spheres suspended in bovine collagen. The non-invasive procedure adds volume to your features by effectively filling up the furrows along the nasolabial region. The desired results by a patient seeking the Artefill wrinkle treatment are a decisive factor in the overall cost structure of the procedure.

The average price of an Artefill syringe has been found to be around $1000. A market survey from 2010-2013 indicates that a 0.8 ml vial of Artefill had an average price of $1200. The current price of a 0.8 ml vial may vary between $1000-$1500 depending on the location of the medical spa and the expertise of the Artefill injecting physician. San Fernando Valley with its proximity to Los Angeles has an average price range of $1000 per syringe, which is slightly reduced in the subsequent sessions.

The cost of undergoing an Artefill Wrinkle Treatment like all cosmetic procedures is not covered by health insurance. A board certified dermatologist may charge a slightly higher fee for the high quality care and the certainty of a complication-free treatment. However, payment plans and financing options offered by the doctors in Encino, Sherman Oaks and Calabasas, CA may make the expensive procedure affordable for many.

Although the price to pay for an Artefill Wrinkle treatment may seem quite steep for a newbie, patients who have experienced temporary dermal filling sessions are sure to find it convenient and reasonable in the long run. It is advisable to go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or an expert like Dr. Bijan Farah for optimal results.

Artefill Wrinkle Treatment – Reduce Wrinkles and Aging

Wrinkles are an inevitable consequence of the aging process. There are many factors that come into play to cause this dreaded imperfection. Exposure to ultraviolet rays is the primary cause behind premature aging. Continuous exposure to sunlight, air pollution and smoking have a damaging effect on the collagen fibers, known as the building blocks of the skin.

Excessive strain on the facial muscles causes the development of furrows beneath the skin. The facial skin gradually loses elasticity as you struggle with expressions that never tend to change. Dermal fillers have been a respite for folks trying to counter laughing lines, although they need to be re-administered at regular intervals

Artefill wrinkle treatment

Artefill, of late has emerged as long term anti-aging solution for wrinkle problems as this micro-sphere enriched collagen filler lasts longer than a temporary dermal filler. The dual action of the bovine collagen in Artefill works on the wrinkles and gets effectively absorbed by the body leaving the Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) micro-spheres unbroken to provide long lasting support to the sagging nasolabial folds.

PMMA micro-spheres suspended in the bovine collagen gel have been found to stimulate the production of natural collagen in the body as they effectively fill the facial wrinkles. A patch test wherein some collagen is placed on the patient’s forearm is conducted weeks in advance to ensure that the patient is not allergic to bovine collagen.

The procedure of injecting the Artefill solution requires about an hour at a medical spa.

Artefill can only be procured by physicians who have undergone product training. The mode of administering Artefill is similar to that of temporary dermal fillers at a med spa. It requires two or three sessions, depending on the depth of the fine lines and wrinkles. The minimum downtime required for the procedure is an added convenience as you can resume your routine within a few hours after the treatment.

What makes it different?

Artefill is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure for a facelift within a fraction of the time required in an invasive facelift surgical operation. Temporary dermal fillers do not have a lasting effects as the natural or synthetic ingredients in the composition get completely absorbed by the body within nine months. On the other hand, the micro-sphere enhanced Artefill solution stays intact in the skin to prevent the wrinkles from resurfacing back too soon. It not only evens out the grooves beneath the skin, but also provides structural support for a fine natural look.

The cost of an Artefill treatment varies between $1000-$1500 per syringe, depending on the goals of the procedure. The desired results may be achieved in a single sitting or may require multiple sessions at a med spa with weekly intervals. The average cost of a 0.8 ml Artefill syringe is around $1200. The final expenses of an Artefill treatment are subject to the expertise of the injecting physician and the number of syringes required to attain the desired cosmetic results.

Dr.Bijan Farah with an expertise in injecting dermal fillers, offers Artefill treatment. If you are a resident of Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando or Calabasas, CA, you can easily avail his service.

CO2 Fractional Laser for Acne Scars, Facial Wrinkles, and Skin Tightening

face 300x294 CO2 Fractional Laser for Acne Scars, Facial Wrinkles, and Skin Tightening Encino CAPeople experience some changes in their body or on their face as they mature. For some, teenage years might be focused on the problems of dealing with acne and other similar skin problems resulting from hormonal changes in the body. On the other hand, people above the age of 35 may start noticing skin issues such as wrinkles and sagging of facial skin. At times, the acne developed in teenage years leaves behind scars that may not react to natural or over the counter acne treatments.

CO2 Fractional laser treatment

CO2 fractional laser treatment is generally used for treating acne scarring, pigmentation of skin, wrinkles and facial lines and chloasma. It is a non-intrusive procedure in which a device is used to deliver a beam of carbon dioxide laser. The laser beam targets a fraction or specific area of the skin which is divided into thousands of microscopic zones to make the treatment focused and powerful. This treatment has revolutionized other anti-aging treatments and is also extremely effective for treating skin damaged by sun rays.

Earlier there were two kinds of skin treatment options that were offered to the patient, namely ablative and non-Ablative. The ablative laser treatment principally focuses on the skin cells present right on the surface or the epidermis, whereas the non-ablative laser treatment deals with treating the middle layer of skin (dermal collagen). CO2 fractional laser treatment comes as a connector that fills the gap between these two treatments as it works on both the surface (epidermal) and middle layer (dermal) of skin.

Dr. Bijan Farah, Medical Director, at Rejuvenate Medical Spa, specializes in  aesthetic surgeries using latest processes and technology. He has over 35 years of experience as a physician treating complicated medical conditions, providing all kinds of anti-aging solutions at his med spa.If you stay in or around the areas of  Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, you can easily reach out to Dr. Bijan Farah with your skin problems.

How is the treatment done?

CO2fractional laser procedure involves a pre-treatment analysis for achieving effective results. It is important for the patient and doctor to have a detailed discussion pointing out the areas to be targeted for the CO2 laser treatment. This enables the doctor to develop a customized treatment for meeting the specific needs of the patient. Once the patient has washed and cleaned the facial area, an anesthetic cream is applied on the targeted areas for treatment. The effect of this cream is felt in about 40-60 minutes.

After this, a gliding gel is applied on the areas to be treated. The purpose behind the application of gliding gel is than it enables the laser to lay down in a uniform MTZ pattern. The treatment lasts for about thirty minutes.

With this treatment, the old and damaged skin is naturally replaced by a layer of healthy and fresh skin giving the face a youthful appearance. This skin improving procedure is quite painless and also extremely quick.

Treatment for Acne Scars, Facial Wrinkles, and Skin Tightening Cost

Facelift 225x300 C02 Fractional Laser Cost Encino CAWrinkle-free, clear, smooth skin, although a much desired attribute, is often left at just that. Aside from the aging process that cant be evaded, exposure to pollution and sun, can destroy the collagen and take a toll on your skin. Added to this, remnants of persistent acne, in the form of scars, can take the sheen of your face. Walking into a medical spa and undergoing a skin renewal treatment is your best bet at flaunting clear, younger-looking skin. A CO2 fraction laser helps in combating acne scars and age-lines.

How does C02 fractional laser work?

The C02 fractional laser uses a vaporization technique to remove the skin layer, as opposed to chemicals or sanding devices used in other techniques. The laser when directed to the problem area, creates deep, narrow treated area columns, which has healthy, untreated tissue around it. It gently removes the skin cells to expose the layers of skin lying under it. The heat given out by the laser beam, stimulates the collagen, which in turn leads to the formation of smoother and younger looking skin. You may have to stay at the medical spa for about half an hour or more to undergo the treatment. Once the treatment is completed, an ointment may be applied to the laser exposed skin to have a soothing effect.

The individual may notice slightly reddened skin and swelling, after the procedure, says Dr. Bijan Farah, well-known in the areas of Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando and Calabasas, CA. The recovery period could take about one to seven days, based on the nature of the treatment. You can ask the doctor at the med spa, about your cleansing routine, and whether or not you are allowed to apply sunscreen or a moisturizer during the recovery period.

Cost and other considerations of the treatment

C02 fractional laser treatment can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • To treat sun-damaged or aged skin
  • To have anti-aging effects by reducing fine lines, wrinkles and pores
  • To treat pigmented skin and age spots
  • To tighten skin and enhance its texture
  • To treat acne scars
  • To reduce surgical scars and stretch marks

The individual may have to come in for one or more treatments, based on his/her condition. In terms of comfort, fractional laser treatment is far better than other laser treatments, although the doctor may apply a topical cream to desensitize the treatment area during fractional laser treatment. The collagen shrinkage during the procedure, leads to immediate effects of skin tightening. The improvement resurface as there are noticeable improvements in the collagen density and skin tightness in about 30 days following the treatment. The improvements steadily continue for nearly six months from the time of the treatment. The cost of the treatment varies across facilities, and is affected by the individual requirements for the treatment as well. The procedure can cost anywhere between $ 2,000 to $ 5,000, a small price to pay to renew your skin.
