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
-Microdermabrasion
-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

-Blepharoplasty

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.

Hair Loss | Hair Restoration | Anti Aging | Encino | Sherman Oaks CAHair loss is a widespread occurrence among both men and women in the US. It can not only compromise the aesthetic appearance of an individual, but may also affect their self-esteem in some ways. Many patients are unclear about what type of hair loss they may be suffering from, what are its causes, and what possible treatments may help them.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides innovative and proven anti-aging solutions, including treatments for hair loss. During the initial consultation, the hair restoration expert will explain various aspects of the hair loss condition. Rejuvenate Med Spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and surrounding areas.

Important Phases in Hair Lifecycle

The average adult will usually have about 100,000 to 150,000 hairs on the head. Loss of hair occurs naturally, and most adults will lose up to 100 hairs in a day. Hair regeneration occurs at the same time, and about 90 percent of the hair on the scalp will be growing at any given moment. The lifecycle of each hair follicle can be affected due to factors such as aging, genetics, disease, and hormonal changes. Major phases in the hair lifecycle are as follows:

  • Anagen: This stage will last for about two to six years during which the hair growth will occur actively.

  • Catagen: This is a short term stage of hair growth lasting for about two to three weeks.

  • Telogen: This is the static or resting stage of hair growth, which usually lasts for about 10 to 14 weeks.

Patients can learn more about their unique hair loss condition and stage of growth during their consultation at Rejuvenate Medical Spa. Dr. Farah and his team are equipped to provide state of the anti-aging solutions, including hair restoration. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive treatments at the med spa.

Hair Loss Types

The following types of hair loss may commonly occur:

Involutional Alopecia

Thinning of hair occurs naturally with aging in this condition. Greater numbers of hair follicles enter the resting stage, and the remaining hairs tend to reduce in size and number.

Androgenic Alopecia

This condition typically occurs due to hereditary factors in both men and women. It is commonly known as male and female pattern baldness.

Alopecia Areata

This condition is commonly seen in children and young adults, and is marked by patchy hair loss.

Alopecia Universalis

This condition will typically result in the loss of all hair, including hair in the body parts.

Telogen Effluvium

Temporary hair thinning may occur due to changes in the hair growth cycle in this condition. Hair shedding and eventual thinning occurs because an increasing number of hairs will enter the resting stage.

Reasons of Hair Loss

Hair loss causes will differ from one person to another. Common factors that usually lead to the condition of progressive hair loss in both men and women include heredity, hormonal changes, disease, stress, pregnancy, certain types of drugs, autoimmune disease, lack of nutrition, and injury or burns.

Non Surgical Hair Treatment | Med Spa | Encino | Sherman Oaks CAHair loss is a common problem for both men and women in the United States. Hair transplant is a well-known surgical solution for hair restoration, but not every patient may be ready to choose a surgical treatment for an aesthetic procedure. This is where a state of the art facility such as Rejuvenate Med Spa offers non-surgical hair loss treatments for patient who are keen to address the problem without surgery.

Low Level Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is an innovative, painless procedure designed for both men and women suffering from hair loss and hair thinning conditions. The procedure involves low level laser beams that are known as ‘soft’ or ‘cold’ lasers because they do not emit any heat, sound, or vibration. Surgical lasers can burn tissue, but low level lasers do not cause any tissue injury.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa provides an advanced LLLT system called the Sunetics Clinical Bio-Stimulation Laser. This is an in-office procedure that can provide a simple and convenient way of hair restoration. The patient can simply sit and relax beneath the treatment device while expert performs the procedure. The Sunetics system allows a pain free treatment and does not involve any down time.

Recent medical research has shown that LLLT with the Sunetics laser system can lead to more effective outcomes over a shorter period of time as compared with any other low energy laser equipment. Rejuvenate med spa offers this innovative non-surgical hair restoration treatment as well as various other advanced anti-aging solutions to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations.

Suitable Candidates

Both men and women who may be concerned about their condition of thinning hair and mild to moderate level of hair loss may consider low level laser therapy. Women typically make sterling candidates for this procedure. Unlike the male pattern baldness, the hair loss in women is usually more diffused across the scalp.

Laser therapy has shown highly encouraging results in the treatment of this type of balding. It is also helpful in reversing hair loss that may have been caused as post-partum and post-menopausal conditions. Men can also benefit from LLLT, whether employing it as a stand-alone procedure or combining it with another regimen of Rogaine or Propecia.

Cleared by the FDA

Sunetics laser technology received clearance from the FDA in 2013 for the treatment of both male and female pattern hair loss. Clinical trials for the FDA showed that 93 percent of the patients treated with LLLT experienced hair re-growth at an average of 22 hairs per square centimeter.

LLLT has shown to be effective in stabilizing hair loss across the scalp and demonstrated successful results in re-growing hair in both frontal and temporal areas of the scalp. These are the areas where common drug therapies such as Propecia or Rogaine may not have show very satisfactory results.

Laser Treatment | Med Spa | Hair Removal | Calabasas CALaser treatment has been successfully performed on many patients for several years. Although the associated side effects are rare. Yet, in a very few cases side effects have occurred and they can be anything like one of the following.

Normal and serious side effects

Side effects can be the normal ones or serious ones depending on the consequences they lead to. Normal side effects have minor consequences such as itching, tingling, numbness and swelling. Appearance of reddish color is seen to be a common occurrence with no serious harm or permanent damage to skin. Scarring may occur when high intensity laser is focused on a particular area for a long time.

Other temporary side effects such as skin blistering and hypo-pigmentation may occur. They can be minimized by some cooling methods.

Very serious side effects on the extreme side cause curable but painful implications.

  1. Scarring: The cause for scarring is the high intensity laser which is focused on a particular area for longer than necessary. It is one of the accidents that may occur during treatment, but experienced technicians and doctors are less prone to such fatality.
  2. Burns: They are rare but when they occur they should be immediately aided by dressing and medication.
  3. Hyper-Pigmentation: It is an effect of darkening of the skin and is the result of increased pigmentation brought about by the laser. People with tanned or dark skin are prone to this effect. Various treatments and precautions are available to prevent this effect.
  4. Infection: Anti-biotic and anti-viral medication help battle infectious germs from entering wounded areas during the treatments. These wounds may be caused during the treatment or the patient may have suffered them before.
  5. Eye Injuries: Safety and precautionary standards are following by all certified practitioners. If not, dreadful accidents such as eye injuries may occur during the treatment.

Other rare side effects

Other side effects which can occur during the treatment are:

  1. Itching: It is a normal side effect which occurs during any kind of hair removal procedure.
  2. Pain, numbness and tingling are experienced in varying degrees by all patients who underwent laser hair removal procedure. It has not resulted in any serious consequences in our observations.
  3. Laser treatment may also cause a condition very rare in occurrence known by the name of crusting. Scabs are seen to be formed in some cases around the treatment area. Such effects are minimized by appropriate medication.

Mild bruises may occur for some time after the treatment.

Purpura is an effect which is caused by internal bleeding which appears as a purple colored rash. If any patient experiences this condition, he must report to the doctor immediately. They are usually cured in about two to three days.

Based in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of LA, Dr. Bijan Farah and his team of technicians and assistants at Rejuvinate Medical Spa have a successful track record with minimum side effects that bear any serious consequences.

Laser hair removal | Electrolysis | Encino | Sherman Oaks | Calabasas, CALaser hair removal is an advanced cosmetic treatment which is seen to be a good alternative to waxing, shaving etc. Most people in California ought to prefer laser treatment for removing unwanted extra hair.

Benefits

It is beneficial to remove unwanted hair with laser from those parts of the body where it could be hard to wax or tweeze such as armpits, hips etc. Its precision and speed enables intricate operations which produces better looks and leave the skin undamaged in the process. The time required depends on the area of the part. In most cases, the maximum time taken was no more than an hour. This treatment is received by patients who look to enhance their beauty or as an anti-aging measure.

Treatment

Patients are generally advised to avoid undergoing any other form of hair removal treatments a few weeks prior to the treatment, since such treatments cause the hair roots to disappear temporarily in which case a laser treatment will not be effective. After the treatment, doctor’s directions must be followed to ensure safe health post treatment.

First, the area where the hair has to be removed is spotted. Hairs are then trimmed to a shorter length and equipment parameters are set accordingly. Appropriate safety measures must be followed by the patient as well as the technician. Certain measures are taken to ensure effective penetration of light through the skin. During the treatment, a pulse of the laser light is directed on to the area of treatment and the settings in the equipment are re-adjusted based on the observation made. The procedure is continued for the rest of the treatment area until all the unwanted hairs are removed.

Recovery

After the treatment, the patient will be prescribed for certain medication. Since this treatment doesn’t remove hairs permanently after the very first treatment, a second treatment will be scheduled in some weeks and the procedure will continue until eventually the hair growth is stopped permanently.

For the first few days, the treated area may appear reddish although it may not be as painful to the patient. Medicines and lotions are prescribed by the doctor to minimize the carmine. Other cosmetic products can be applied after the treatment but should be avoided in any case of discomfort. Side effects may occur in the form of carmine, scarring, swelling and blisters which are actually very rare.

Cost

Cost of the treatment depends on individual cases and many factors such as the area of the treatment and time, number of treatments, method of treatment and location. A consultation session will provide a clear picture of the cost. The average cost of this treatment, as stated by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons is about $235 per session.

New Study Supports Anti-Aging Solutions

As a part of his commitment to disseminate useful information to patients at his med spa about the safety and effectiveness of various non-surgical procedures, Dr. Farah has highlighted the results of a new study published in the respected journal JAMA Dermatology. The study has suggested that anti-aging procedures such as Botox, dermal fillers and laser skin resurfacing treatments produce highly safe results with a very low incidence of side effects.

However, the study suggests that the procedures must be performed by properly qualified and experienced medical professional or skin care expert to achieve safe outcomes. According to the results of the study, less than one percent of the patients will experience minor side effects such as bruising, skin discoloration, or lumpiness with such procedures.

Rejuvenate med spa, led by Dr. Farah, is a pre-eminent facility providing non-surgical treatments such as Botox, facial fillers and laser treatments to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other areas.

Observations of Lead Authors

Dr. Murad Alam, a dermatologist at the Northwestern University in Illinois, who is the lead author of the study, and has earlier conducted studies backed by eminent companies such as Allergan and Ulthera, said: “We strongly suspected the rates were going to be low, but we were pleasantly surprised that they were as low as they were.”

Dr. Michael Edwards, the president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), however, pointed out that the study covered only reputed treatment providers who regular perform such anti-aging non-surgical treatments. The chances of undesirable results may increase when the procedures are carried out by providers with lesser experience and expertise.

Findings

The study involved 23 skin care experts across the US to track data regarding key cosmetic procedures they performed over a three month period, including any adverse events reported by patients over the next 12 months. The team reviewed 20,399 procedures in total.

Only one in every 416 procedures resulted in a negative impact such as bruising, lumpiness or swelling in the treated area. Side effects in a procedure such as Botox were as low as just one in 3,333 cases. In case of Juvederm filler, beading or lumpiness occurred in one in 135 cases.

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.
