Aging - Lines & Wrinkles Downtown Los Angeles

Botox

Wrinkles result from muscle contractions under the skin when people smile, laugh or frown.

By paralyzing certain muscles under the skin, Botox prevents the contractions, allowing the skin to remain smooth. Tiny needles are used to inject the medication under the skin and into the muscle or nerve. The effects generally last three to twelve months, although different patients may have different results.

Dysport

Dysport is a cosmetic treatment that, like Botox, uses neurotoxins to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on a person’s face.

Dysport blocks nerve signals and muscle contractions that cause dynamic wrinkles. The proteins used in Dysport are smaller than those used in BOTOX, allowing practitioners to achieve a subtle result, helping patients with very fine lines achieve a more natural result. The results are noticeable within days and are easily maintained with follow up treatments every 2-4 months.

Juvederm

Juvederm is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid (HA). This substance is a natural sugar that is already present in the human body.

As time goes on, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the body decreases, which can result in loss of volume and changes to the face. Juvederm replaces that lost volume to make the face look more youthful. These injections are most effective in the creases that develop around the nose and mouth with age.

Restylane

Restylane is one of the first hyaluronic acid-based fillers to be mass marketed for cosmetic purposes.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the skin which, like collagen, decreases in natural production as we age. Restylane offers natural-looking youthful results when injected to nasolabial folds (the area between the upper lip and cheeks). It is also effective in plumping up fine vertical lines around the mouth, and to filling out scars, such as pockmarks left by acne. Restylane is also used frequently to enhance lip volume. The effects of Restylane typically last three to six months.

Radiesse

Radiesse is another filler that both provides an immediate correction of wrinkles and folds on the face and stimulates the production of new collagen.

Results typically last up to a year before touch up treatments are needed. Radiesse is also the first injectable treatment approved by the FDA to add volume to the back of the hands, which are often a giveaway to a person’s age. When injected under the skin, Radiesse adds fullness and masks protruding veins and tendons, providing a more smooth and youthful appearance.

Microneedling

Imagine using your skin's natural healing ability to fight lines, reduce acne scarring and improve texture! Microneedling is a non invasive practice that can benefit all skin types.

The treatment works through inflicting invisible, vertical microinjuries to the top layer of skin to stimulate your skins repair process and increase the production of collagen. The result is younger looking skin with more firmness and elasticity, all with little to no downtime involved. This treatment is effective in treating a wide range of concerns such as a loss in volume, acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin tone, making it beneficial for patients of all ages.

PEARL

Developed as the most effective laser treatment to combat multiple signs of aging, the PEARL fractional laser treatment delivers surgical level results without having to go under the knife.

Pearl is ideal for the treatment of common skin conditions such as sun damage and acne scars, as well as symptoms of aging including lines and wrinkles, dark spots and uneven texture. Thanks to the lasers unique fractional therapy and simultaneous treatment of the dermis and epidermis, patients see dramatic results in just one treatment.

The Pearl Fractional Laser works through the use of controlled ablation. This means that sections of the skin are selectively targeted by the lasers pulses to thermally damage columns of tissue, while the remainder of the skin remains untreated. This allows for faster recovery time, as well as stimulation of new collagen and healthy cells in place of the tissue that was ablated. Patients begin to see results one week after treatment, and will notice optimum results in 1-3 months post treatment.

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that utilizes the latest innovations in medical aesthetics to give you healthier, clearer skin.

Safe for all skin types, Genesis is ideal for treating imperfections such as acne scars, rosacea, uneven texture, fine lines, large pores and dark spots. The laser supports your skin's natural rejuvenation ability by heating the dermis with targeted light particles to stimulate new collagen production. This results in a more even complexion, and a younger, fresher overall appearance. It can take up to one month to see optimum results of the procedure, as the new cells reach the skin's surface and the collagen growth continues to increase.
