What is involved in a Liquid Facelift?

iStock 000009543790Small 276x300 - What is involved in a Liquid Facelift?Each year in the US millions of people achieve facial rejuvenation with injectable medspa procedures such as Botox and facial fillers. While these FDA approved injectable solutions are highly popular, they can only offer limited benefits when used individually. Botox is a neuromodulator designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing wrinkle-forming facial muscles.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, typically include a filler gel that volumizes the affected skin, plumps it up in the depleted areas, and thereby reduces facial wrinkles, creases, and folds. When both Botox and selective dermal fillers are used in conjunction with each other, it is known as a liquid facelift. Motykie medical spa provides liquid facelift to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
 

Facial Cosmetic Enhancement

A non-surgical liquid facelift medspa procedure can deliver excellent facial cosmetic enhancement when it is provided by a trained expert. Some of the key cosmetic benefits include:

  • Sagging facial features such as jowls and brows receive a subtle lift.
  • Hollows below the eyes are filled and dark circles around the eyes are reduced.
  • Drooping corners of the mouth are reduced.
  • Depleted skin in cheeks and temples is volumized.
  • Lips are augmented to make them thicker and fuller.
  • The face looks more youthful and rested.

Liquid facelift is particularly beneficial for people in the age group of 30 to 65. If the facial skin elasticity is reasonably good, the results with a liquid facelift can be dramatic. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for liquid facelift.
 

Procedure

A customize injection plan will be prepared while taking into account the patient’s specific facial anatomical features and their individual aesthetic goals. Frown lines between the brows and on the forehead as well as crow’s feet around the eyes can be treated effectively with Botox. The provider may apply Restylane facial filler in the sensitive tear trough area below the eyes. This will fill under eye depressions and minimize or eliminate dark circles.
If the midface is sagging or cheeks have suffered volume loss, the provider may make use of Juvederm Voluma dermal filler. This filler has been specifically approved by the FDA to restore cheek volume and build a fuller, rounder midface. Laugh lines and nasolabial folds may be addressed most effectively with Juvederm injectable filler.
 

Benefits

A liquid facelift involving FDA approved injectables such as Botox, Juvederm, Restylane and Voluma can deliver outstanding outcomes in a completely non-surgical manner. All the risks and complications that are typically associated with a surgery are avoided in this case. The dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, which is a biocompatible compound with no risk of allergies.
Unlike a surgical facelift, a liquid facelift will not involve any significant downtime. Most of the patients may be able to return to work the same day or the next day. Minor swelling and redness in the treated areas is expected, but it will go away on its own in a few days.

How long does it take to recover from SmartGraft Hair Restoration?

 How long does it take to recover from SmartGraft Hair Restoration?SmartGraft is a less invasive, innovative, and highly automated medspa procedure to restore hair in targeted areas of the scalp. SmartGraft offers several advantages over traditional hair transplant surgery, including a much shorter recovery. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss all aspects of the procedure, including its estimated recovery.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides SmartGraft and various other procedures. It offers SmartGraft as an in-office procedure involving the use of only a local anesthetic. Motykie medical spa provides SmartGraft to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
 

Recovery Period

To begin with, SmartGraft medspa procedure can be provided only using a local anesthetic. This ensures that the patient does not have to suffer the nausea and discomfort that typically follows during recovery from general anesthesia. Secondly, SmartGraft technology involves the use of a fully automated hand-piece to extract grafts.
This ensures that the use of scalpel is entirely avoided, and the grafting can be performed in a more precise and less invasive manner. Surrounding healthy tissue is not harmed, and no linear scar will occur on the back of the head. The minimal disruption of skin and tissue ensures that the patient goes through little discomfort and recovers faster.
Total recovery time in case of SmartGraft is just one to two days. After this period, the patient can quickly return to their normal activities or go back to work. Healing is much faster with this procedure due to the minimally invasive treatment approach. Unlike traditional hair transplant surgery that can take up to several weeks for complete recovery, SmartGraft ensures a much quicker and easier recovery.
The procedure is particularly popular among working people and busy moms who normally do not want to undergo a procedure that involves a painful and prolonged recovery. Dr. Motykie’s medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for SmartGraft hair restoration.
 

Post-Operative Benefits

SmartGraft is a comfortable procedure due to the application of a local anesthetic. The patient remains awake through the procedure, but feels no pain. Many patients prefer to watch a movie or listen to music while the procedure is in progress. The comfortable level of the patient continues once the procedure is over.
From an aesthetic perspective, the patient will not be required to have a buzz cut. If the original hair at donor site is long enough, the treatment provider will harvest hair grafts by shaving small areas that can be camouflaged by the overlying longer hair. Post-operative activity restrictions are minimal after a SmartGraft procedure.
Unlike the traditional strip method of hair restoration, the SmartGraft procedure does not result in visible linear scarring. Grafts are removed using an automated process as individual micro grafts rather than a large strip that will require stitches.
 

Shorter Duration

The entire SmartGraft procedure can be completed in a single session lasting about five to six hours. Due to the automation capabilities and efficiency of the SmartGraft device, the harvesting part of the procedure can be completed in about one-third less time compared to other treatments. With SmartGraft, the treatment provider can harvest more grafts in less time. This cuts down the time period of the grafts that await implantation, which delivers better results.

SmartGraft Hair Restoration Before and After Photos

SmartGraft Hair Restoration Before and After Photos | Beverly HillsSmartGraft is a hair restoration medspa procedure that involves a less invasive, automated process of transplanting hair grafts. At the time of initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain all aspects of SmartGraft and describe its benefits in comparison to other treatment alternatives.
The provider may also present SmartGraft hair restoration before and after photographs at the first appointment. Motykie Medical Spa, led by experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, is a premier provider of SmartGraft. The medical spa provides this procedure to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
 

What are SmartGraft Before and After Photographs?

Before and after photographs in case of SmartGraft hair restoration medspa procedure refer to a set of pictures belonging to a previous patient who has received the same procedure with satisfactory results. The set includes photographs taken before the procedure and after the procedure at a stage when full results of SmartGraft have been established. This stage normally occurs in about 12 to 14 months after treatment.
The treatment provider will ensure that SmartGraft before and after images are acquired from the patient with their complete consent. The images are presented before new patients in a discreet way. The sole purpose behind this exercise is to educate new patients about SmartGraft and explain its potential effectiveness in order to help them make the right decision.
Digital technology has transformed every industry in the world and this includes those working for the private or the public sector. Now with digital assistance someone can see what this surgeon can do for them before they ever schedule a meeting. This means that when they do meet the meeting could be shorter and the patient is already on a more comfortable footing since they know what the surgeon can do. They also know how this surgery will look on them. This reduces any ambiguity.
 

Benefits

It is likely that a patient who may seek SmartGraft may have already tried other treatments with limited success. Therefore, they may be skeptical about the outcome with SmartGraft. Some patients may be concerned whether the procedure will meet their personal aesthetic goals or not.
In all such cases, the provider can address the patient’s concerns and satisfy them with the presentation of authentic before and after photos. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for SmartGraft.
 

Reasonable Expectations

Most satisfying outcomes in any cosmetic or anti-aging procedure are usually achieved when the patient has reasonable expectations and knows exactly what the procedure can or cannot do for them. A treatment provider will always like to have this situation for their patients. Therefore, they will try to present SmartGraft before and after photos at the first appointment.
This simple effort will mitigate the risk of any disappointment or misunderstanding occurring at a later stage. All parties benefit from this process, and the patient can enjoy successful and satisfying results for a long time to come.
 

Photos on Social Media and Website

Social platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and Reddit community are highly popular. If the treatment provider has an active presence over these social media channels, they may present SmartGraft before and after photos here. Viewers may share the photos around and a wider visibility can be achieved.
Alternatively, the treatment provider can create a dedicated Photo Gallery section on their medical spa website. SmartGraft ‘before and after’ photos can be uploaded in this section for instant free access to all past, present, and future patients.
