Non-Invasive Med Spa Procedure to Fix Loose Skin

Non-Invasive Med Spa Procedure to Fix Loose Skin

Non-Invasive Med Spa Procedure to Fix Loose Skin | Beverly HillsThe revolutionary BTL EXILIS Ultra is a unique non-invasive med spa procedure that uses a combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound energy to simultaneously tighten sagging, loose skin and reduce the appearance of undesirable curves, excess fatty pockets, and unappealing cellulite.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides skin rejuvenation treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

 

Safe and Controlled Energy-Based Treatment

The innovative BTL EXISLIS Ultra device delivers strong, controlled heating at precise depths within the skin to targeted unwanted fatty tissue in a selective manner while stimulating the production of fresh collagen.

The outcomes are fewer wrinkles and undesirable curves along with fresh, more youthful looking skin for a rejuvenated face and body.

This advanced, energy-based treatment modality is an excellent way to target precise facial and body areas. It can also be incorporated into a customized rejuvenation package developed to help the patient maintain a revitalized, youthful, and naturally appealing look.

 

Benefits the BTL EXILIS Ultra

  • Robust skin tightening: Addresses sagging, loose skin on the neck, face, hands, and décolletage.
  • Excellent body firming: Fights unwanted curves and cellulite on the thighs, flanks, abdomen, and butt
  • Entirely non-invasive: Comfortable and safe for all types of skin
  • Fast and convenient: Most treatments can be undertaken in less than 30 minutes
  • Absolutely no downtime or discomfort: Patients can resume their routine activities right after the treatment

Patients will experience noticeable outcomes in as little as two weeks, but most patients will need to undergo a series of treatments for optimal outcomes.

 

Powerful, Safe, and Flexible for Incredible Skin Tightening

The BTL EXILIS Ultra offers an innovative blend of ultrasound and radiofrequency energy. This along with its flexible design enables it to deliver effective results on almost any body area in a safe and comfortable manner.

  • Ultra Tight: For the fragile skin around the face, neck, eyes, and décolletage
  • Ultra Plump: For the delicate and very noticeable skin around the lips
  • Ultra Lift: For the difficult areas near the legs, butt, and arms
  • Ultra Tone: Smooth away fatty deposits around the knees and abdomen
  • Ultra Smooth: Softens the appearance of cellulite and aging hands
  • Ultra Intimate: Explicitly meant for external vaginal rejuvenation

 

How the BTL EXILIS Ultra Works

The BTL EXILIS Ultra is the first and only non-invasive body sculpting modality that simultaneously uses ultrasound as well as radiofrequency energy to go through the skin layers to heal and constrict fatty tissue.

At the same time, it triggers the production of fresh collagen for firmer, thicker skin. A combination of these energy modalities allows the energy to penetrate the skin more rapidly compared to only a single modality.

The body absorbs the destructed fat cells and produces fresh collagen. This makes the skin in the treatment site tighter and reduces the overall thickness of the fat layer, leaving the patient with tauter, smoother, and more beautiful skin.

The BTL EXILIS Ultra incorporates a unique applicator to apply its cutting-edge technology to various body areas, including the fragile skin around the lips and eyes. Stemming from this, the med spa device comprises an advanced safety feature, called the Energy Flow Control system, within the applicator tip.

This cutting-edge system delivers powerful energy with precision to the appropriate skin depth, while ensuring that the epidermis remains cool to prevent any damage to the superficial skin layer. Consequently, this treatment provides safe, predictable, and very effective outcomes.

How much does Fractional Skin Resurfacing and Skin Tightening with the Pixel Laser Cost?

Skin Resurfacing and Tightening with Pixel Laser Cost | Beverly HillsPixel laser fractional skin resurfacing is a proven skin rejuvenation med spa procedure for people who seek to mitigate signs of aging, sun damage, and various other skin aberrations in a non-surgical manner.

At the time of the pre-treatment consultation, the provider will inform the patient on various facets of the procedure, including its estimated costs.

The main goal of a responsible treatment provider will be to enable the patient to make an informed choice. The patient should unhesitatingly ask the provider questions on the costs and other factors.

Pixel laser skin tightening is typically undertaken as an elective cosmetic treatment. This means that the patient will likely not receive insurance coverage for this procedure.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Pixel Laser treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

Cost Comparison

Pixel laser skin resurfacing treatment will be less expensive compared to a cosmetic surgery procedure such as a facelift. Surgical procedures typically involve costs such as the surgeon’s fee, general anesthesia, surgical venue costs, and pre and post-operative expenses.

Pixel laser skin tightening, on the other hand, is an outpatient treatment that can be undertaken in-office. For this reason, it does not involve the additional costs that are associated with cosmetic surgery.

Some patients may want to understand the cost comparison between Pixel laser skin resurfacing and other non-invasive options such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, IPL skin rejuvenation, and soft tissue filler injections.

While some of these med spa procedures may be less expensive than pixel laser skin tightening, they may not create similar results. With these factors in mind, the patient should assess their budget, skin condition, and cosmetic goals prior to making a final decision.

 

Cost Variations

Pixel laser skin resurfacing procedures involve the use of different laser techniques and technologies. The choice is dependent on the depth of the skin aberrations that need to be treated.

The number of treatment sessions and treatment sites may vary between patients. The treatment costs for a patient who needs only two to three treatment sessions will be less than those for patients requiring five to six sessions to address their aesthetic needs and create desirable outcomes.

Another factor that will affect the cost of Pixel laser skin resurfacing treatment is the geographical location of the practice. Practices that are located in main urban centers and busy metropolitan cities typically have higher overhead and real estate costs compared to practices situated in small towns in interior regions.

The level of personalized care, quality standards, safety protocols, type of technology, and qualified support staff at the med spa chosen by the patient also affects the total costs of the procedure to a certain extent.

At the time of the pre-treatment consultation, the patient should openly ask questions related to the costs and make a well-considered decision after a thorough comparison of the costs and benefits with other treatment alternatives.

 

Financing

The patient should seek payment option information from the provider or their team beforehand. A majority of patients will be eligible for third-party financing by professional medical care financing companies at reasonable interest rates and convenient payment terms.

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Pixel Laser skin rejuvenation treatments.

Botox Can Help Give You Younger Looking Eyes

Botox Can Help Give You Younger Looking Eyes | Beverly Hills Botox injectables are an appropriate treatment for the reduction of facial signs of aging in a non-surgical manner.

This med spa procedure received approval from the FDA in 2002 for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines in the forehead area. After that, in 2013, Botox also received FDA approval for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Botox injections to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

Reduction of Eye Bags with Botox

The treatment of under eye bags or dark circles by injecting Botox is an off-label use in the US.

A study undertaken in 2003 aimed to understand whether Botox injected under and around the eyes could reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in these areas. In this study, Botox injections were administered to 19 female participants.

Participants who received Botox injections in the lower lids and crow’s feet area were more likely to report positive results compared to those who only received this treatment in the lower eyelids.

These results indicate that Botox injectables can help the lower lid appear fuller and plumper. This helps reduce the wrinkle and under eye bags in the eye area.

 

Treating Crow’s Feet with Botox

Crow’s feet, or lateral canthal lines, refer to the fine lines and wrinkles that radiate from the outside corners of the eyes. These wrinkles may cause a tired appearance in the eye region making an individual appear older than their age.

The FDA has approved Botox for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet. This treatment is meant to create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance around the eyes.

 

Botox Study for Crow’s Feet Reduction

Allergan Inc., the manufacturer of Botox, conducted in-depth research and extensive tests to showcase the efficiency of these injections in reducing the appearance of crow’s feet.

Due to this, the FDA approved Botox for the treatment of such lines. Allergen conducted an extensive study with more than 1,000 adult participants who were segregated into two groups.

One group consisting of 833 participants received Botox injections for their crow’s feet while the other group did not undergo any treatment. The group that received Botox treatment showed a major reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet in comparison to the group that did not receive any treatment.

 

Botox for the Treatment of Frown Lines

An individual may appear tired or angry due to the appearance on frown lines. Botox can reduce these lines effectively. The elimination of these lines between the brows can make a person appear more rested and approachable at social settings or the workplace.

Botox injectable med spa treatment relaxes the muscles of the face responsible for the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as prevents these lines from becoming deeper. The procedure is typically completed in only around ten minutes.

Botox injections require significant skill where the most natural looking and effective outcomes are a result of injecting in the right muscles and the correct dose by a qualified provider.

 

How does Botox Work?

Botox comprises the neurotoxin called Botulinum, which obstructs communication between the nerve and muscle when injected into the underlying muscle in the appropriate dosage.

Botox is a non-surgical procedure where the provider uses fine needles to inject the medication directly into the overactive muscle that is responsible for the formation of the wrinkle. The chemical impedes communication between the nervous system and the muscle temporarily upon reaching the muscle.

Restylane vs. Juvederm

Restylane vs. Juvederm | Beverly Hills | Los Angeles | West HollywoodRestylane and Juvederm are both hyaluronic acid (HA)-based dermal injectables used to treat signs of skin aging. HA “plumps” the skin reducing the appearance of line and wrinkles as well as augments the lips.

Both of these dermal filler med spa injections include the same basic ingredients. But there are some differences in their usage, application, and potential benefits.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides soft tissue filler treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

Comparison between Restylane and Juvederm

Restylane and Juvederm are non-surgical treatments. Both are HA-based filler procedures that make use of HA to add volume to the skin. Restylane and Juvederm both contain lidocaine to mitigate pain during the procedure. Each brand has different formulas, which have been approved by the FDA specifically for use on the face and lips.

 

Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk is used in the lip area. According to the official site of the manufacturer, Restylane Silk was the first lip augmentation filler to be approved by the FDA. This filler can effectively augment lips as well as soften out lip lines.

 

Juvederm Ultra or Volbella XC

Juvederm comes in two forms:

Juvederm Ultra XC med spa injectable gel is designed to augment the lips. On the other hand, Juvederm Volbella XC helps mitigate vertical lip lines and adds subtle fullness to the lips.

Patients commonly experience swelling and bruising after dermal filler injections, but these side-effects typically resolve within two to three days. How long these symptoms last will depend on the treatment area.  

In case the patient is receiving treatment for lip lines, these side-effects will subside within seven days. However, with lip augmentation, the side-effects may prevail for up to two weeks.

 

How long does each Procedure take?

It takes only a few minutes to inject Restylane and Juvederm fillers. The patient will likely need follow-up sessions to maintain the fullness in their lips.

 

Restylane Duration

It takes between 15 to 60 minutes to administer a single Restylane procedure. The lip area is much smaller compared to other treatment sites. Therefore, the time taken to complete this procedure in the lip area will be on the shorter side of this spectrum. The outcomes of the filler will be apparent after a few days.

 

Juvederm Duration

The time taken to inject Juvederm is the same as it takes to administer a single Restylane procedure. But the Juvederm lip results are instantaneous, unlike Restylane.

 

Comparing Results

Restylane and Juvederm both produce smooth results due to the presence of HA which creates a plumping effect. However, Juvederm tends to last for slightly longer and offers quicker outcomes.

 

Restylane Outcome

The patient will likely notice the results in a few days following their Restylane Silk injectable procedure. The results of these procedures are said to start wearing off after around ten months.

 

Juvederm Outcome

Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Volbella add fullness to the lips as well as other areas of the face almost instantaneously. The results typically last for almost a year.

 

Ideal Candidates

Restylane Candidates

Adults aged 21 years or above are eligible to undergo Restylane injections. The treatment may not be appropriate for individuals with a history of the below mentioned conditions:

  • Bleeding disorders
  • Inflammatory skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, or rosacea
  • Allergies to lidocaine or HA

 

Juvederm Candidates

Juvederm is only recommended for people aged 21 years or above. Individuals with sensitivities or allergies to lidocaine or HA may not be appropriate candidates for this treatment.

Chin Liposuction Options to Remove The Fat Double Chin

Chin Liposuction Options to Remove The Fat Double Chin | Beverly HillsChin or submental liposuction tightens the muscles under the chin. In doing so, this procedure minimizes the appearance of a double chin and enhances the contours of the chin.

In many cases, chin liposuction may be undertaken along with a neck lift, facelift, and/or chin augmentation. The combination of chin liposuction and a neck lift, facelift, and/or chin implants can make significant improvements in the overall facial appearance of a patient.

The med spa treatment provider will offer the patient in-depth information on chin liposuction during the pre-operative consultation. In addition, they will answer any questions that the patient may have regarding this procedure to enable them to develop reasonable expectations from chin liposuction.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides chin liposuction treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

 

Benefits of Chin Liposuction

  • Minimizes the appearance of Double Chin: Chin liposuction is a proven and safe procedure to eliminate the appearance of a double chin.
  • Improves the Jawline: This procedure helps create a more sculpted jawline.  
  • Reduces Neck Fat: Chin liposuction makes it easier to minimize fat in the neck area, enabling a more natural transition from the neck to the jaw line.

 

Chin Liposuction Recovery

It is common for patients to experience inflammation and bruising after chin liposuction. Most patients are able to resume work in one week after the procedure.

The patient will typically wear a head-wrap after double chin liposuction to keep pressure under the chin. The head-wrap helps reduce chin swelling and enables the skin to conform to the new neck contour properly.

 

Kybella Injections for Chin Reduction

Kybella is the first and only injectable procedure for the reduction of a double chin that has received FDA-approval.

This treatment has been a boon for thousands of patients who want to eliminate excess chin fat that creates the appearance of a double chin and adversely impacts their chin profile.

People who do not want to undergo liposuction or another surgical option may choose Kybella non-surgical med spa treatment.

Kybella has been designed to address the appearance of a double chin in a non-surgical manner. It has received approval from the FDA after extensive trials. This treatment is non-surgical yet offers patients highly effective results. Therefore, patient satisfaction rates with Kybella are quite high.

 

Test Outcomes

An international clinical development study was conducted to determine the efficacy of Kybella. The program spanned over 20 clinical trials with 2,600 patients worldwide.

More than 68 percent of patients reported a positive response to Kybella in pivotal Phase III studies. The patients experienced a reduction in fat in the submental area. Many patients also reported emotional benefits due to this reduction in chin fat.

 

Procedure

The Kybella treatment plan is customized according to the specific needs of an individual patient. It is delivered through injections directly into the targeted submental fat deposits.

One Kybella session can last for nearly 15 to 20 minutes. A majority of patients will need two to four treatment sessions to accomplish desirable results. Up to six treatment sessions may be necessary in severe cases.

Fractional Skin Resurfacing And Skin Tightening With The Pixel Laser

Skin Resurfacing And Tightening With The Pixel Laser | Beverly HillsPixel laser skin resurfacing is a robust laser-based technology that promotes the body’s own natural healing response to mitigate the most common aging signs and rejuvenate and revitalize the appearance.

Motykie Med Spa is one of the few medical spas in the US to offer this innovative “fractional resurfacing” procedure, which uses the power of pixelated light to develop tiny thermal channels into the skin.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides Pixel laser treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

How does it work?

Pixel laser device creates microscopic laser “hot spots” prompting the skin to generate new collagen fibers. The surrounding untreated tissue encourages effective healing, minimizes downtime, and enhances the recovery. The outcome is revitalized, rejuvenated skin that improves the patient’s inner wellness!

Pixel laser skin resurfacing is a suitable anti-aging med spa procedure for men and women seeking to enhance the overall texture and tone of their skin while achieving a more youthful, healthier appearance.

This treatment can help remove or reduce:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Signs of damage due to sun and environmental factors
  • Loose, tired skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scarring and other minor scarring
  • Skin blemishes
  • Stretch marks

Pixel can be safely administered on most body areas with minimal temporary side-effects. A majority of patients report the post-treatment sensation to be similar to that of mild sunburn. The patient will typically experience progressive improvements for up to three months after the last treatment session.

 

Is Pixel laser appropriate for you?

For people who answer “Yes” to any of the following questions, Pixel skin resurfacing may offer an effective skin rejuvenation solution.

  • Does your skin appear dull and tired, making you appear older than your years?
  • Have you witnessed any new fine lines or wrinkles on your face?
  • Do you see blotches or age spots from tanning or spending time in the sun?
  • Are you self-conscious about the size of your pores?
  • Are you unhappy about the appearance of acne scarring?
  • Do you have stretch marks on your thighs, abdomen, or other sites?

 

Pixel Laser Highlights

  • Time taken to complete the procedure ranges between 30 and 60 minutes.
  • A majority of patients experienced improvements in skin tone after their first treatment.
  • The average patient needs two to five sessions for best outcomes, depending on their specific skin needs.
  • Pixel is a safe treatment for virtually any body area, including the neck, face, arms, hands, and chest.
  • Pixel can be administered along with other lasers and cosmetic treatments.

 

Does it hurt?

This is a common concern among patients about Pixel resurfacing treatments. A majority of patients do not feel any significant discomfort during their Pixel treatment. Towards the end of the treatment, a mild burning sensation may occur. However, it typically lasts only for a few hours.

Many patients report that the treated skin feels similar to a sunburn for a few days. It is vital for patients to follow the post-treatment guidelines in a committed manner to maximize their comfort.

 

Fractional Technology

Pixel is technically called a “fractional resurfacing” laser. It is known as fractional as it only targets a fraction of the skin in the treatment site, and then prompts the body’s own healing system to complete the process of rejuvenation.

Pixel laser light goes through patented optics to penetrate the skin with tiny thermal channels, only as deep as a few sheets of paper.

The micro-dots of the treated skin areas start healing. The skin’s inner radiance and beauty shine through as the collagen remodels. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Pixel laser treatments.

How much do Botox injections cost in Beverly Hills?

How much do Botox injections cost in Beverly Hills? | Beverly HillsData from the American Surgery of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) indicates that Botox is the top non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States today. Botox was approved by the FDA for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines in 2002.

Subsequently, in 2013, Botox received FDA-approval for the cosmetic reduction of crow’s feet which radiate outwards from the outer corners of the eye.

The provider will inform the patient on various facets of Botox, including its estimated costs, at the time of the pre-treatment consultation.

The first concern of a responsible provider will be to ensure that the patient makes a well-considered decision. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Botox injections to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

 

Cost Comparison

Botox med spa treatment may be more cost-effective in comparison to cosmetic surgery and many other types of non-surgical anti-aging facial treatments.

Botox is an in-office procedure with no requirement for anesthesia or sedation. The patient can resume their normal activities or work right after this injectable procedure.

Botox injectable treatment may be more affordable than anti-aging treatments which involve the use of ultrasound, lasers, RF, or deep chemical peels. Other anti-aging treatments may involve multiple sessions. But the patient can undergo the complete Botox treatment in a single session.

Botox is more cost-effective than other skin rejuvenation procedures for the face as it does not involve anesthesia, numerous sessions, and post-op expenses.

 

Cost Variation

The monetary amount of Botox may vary slightly depending on the extent of the treatment that the patient needs. Some patients only need minimal treatment for frown lines between the brows to mitigate the appearance of crow’s feet in the eye area.

Other patients may require Botox for off-label uses such as reducing the appearance of line around the mouth and nose and the treatment of wrinkles in other facial areas. The dollar amount of the medical spa procedure may be based on the volume of Botox units necessary for a specific patient or the number of treatment areas involved.

 

Caution on Pricing

An alarming trend that has emerged in recent times is that of Botox parties and off-site Botox treatments. Patients consider such options attracted by the low prices on offer. But it is important to understand that Botox is a powerful treatment.

The FDA advises patients to receive injections only from a trained provider to avoid the complications associated with botulinum toxin. Patients should evaluate the credentials and background of the treatment provider before undergoing Botox injections.

 

Insurance

In general, patients will not receive insurance coverage for Botox injections. Irrespective of this, patients should discuss with their insurer prior to seeking Botox. Botox manufacturer, Allergan, Inc., provides free information on Botox insurance to patients over the phone.

The patient may consider seeking a loan from a professional medical care financing company in case they choose to undergo Botox along with other procedures.

 

Repeat Treatments

Patients who want to undergo repetitive Botox treatments should monitor when the movement of the facial muscle seems to be returning to its normal level.

In addition, they can visit the Botox provider for periodic assessment. The patient should consider the cost of repeat treatments if they plan on receiving Botox injections multiple times.

Motykie Med Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Botox injectable treatment.

SmartGraft Hair Restoration vs. Microblading

SmartGraft Hair Restoration vs. Microblading | Beverly HillsMicroblading hair restoration is a temporary hair pigmentation technique that may work only in smaller areas such as eyebrows. However, the results may still not be natural looking or sustainable.

SmartGraft hair restoration med spa procedure, on the other hand, is a safe and minimally invasive technique to achieve significant, long-lasting results that look completely natural.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides SmartGraft hair restoration to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

How SmartGraft Works

SmartGraft device is based on an innovative technology to restore the lost or thinning hair without involving the use of a scalpel. The minimally invasive approach of SmartGraft procedure ensures that the patient remains comfortable during as well as after the treatment.

Compared to traditional hair restoration procedures, the recovery time with SmartGraft is cut down from several weeks to just one or two days.

Highly precise and gentle extraction of the hair from the donor sites is possible with SmartGraft med spa technique. Its automated process ensures swift and efficient counting, sorting, and moistening of the hair grafts.

These grafts are then stored immediately in a sterile, controlled environment to improve their survival rate. As a result, patients can achieve thicker, fuller and more natural looking hair re-growth.

 

SmartGraft for Eyebrow Hair Restoration

SmartGraft can be a much more effective, aesthetically appealing and long lasting procedure for eyebrow hair restoration compared to Microblading.

SmartGraft makes use of a highly precise follicle implantation technique, where the patient experiences nothing more than a pinprick. Therefore, it does not leave behind any facial scarring.

SmartGraft provides a safe way to restore thick and natural looking brows that may have thinned due to age-related hair loss or years of plucking and waxing. Unlike microblading, the results with SmartGraft are more real looking because the brow restoration is done using the patient’s own real hair.

The procedure of brow hair restoration with SmartGraft is similar to the scalp restoration procedure. The treatment provider will apply a local anesthetic, and the patient will remain awake through the treatment session.

The benefit is that the patient can interact with the staff during the procedure to ensure the eyebrows take the exact desired shape.

In about three months after the SmartGraft treatment, patients will begin to notice new hair growth in the brows. In about 12 months, full hair restoration will usually happen. Some patients may seek a second SmartGraft treatment over time in order to achieve even thicker eyebrows.

 

Basic Responsibilities

The patient should trim the new transplanted brow hair periodically in order to retain the natural brow shape. Patients should discuss both SmartGraft and microblading treatment options with their provider at the time of initial consultation. The provider will help them make the appropriate choice according to their needs.

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby areas for SmartGraft hair restoration.

A wide range of nutraceuticals and other dietary supplements are now available for supporting hair re-growth. These supplements are formulated with minerals and vitamins to promote the hair growth cycle and support the scalp.

Some of these supplements have shown to maintain hair in their growth phase or extend the hair growth cycle (which could have become shorter due to aging or other factors.)

Certain men’s supplements focus on reducing male pattern hair loss by blocking targeted hormones, while women’s supplements may be designed to reduce stress and inflammation that could be causing hair loss.

 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

Human cells require WBCs, growth factors and other proteins to maximize their functional capacity. These elements are present in abundance in the bloodstream.

PRP therapy involves separating these vital components from the blood, and injecting them directly into the balding areas of the scalp to stimulate and rejuvenate the hair follicles.

The med spa treatment provider may recommend three monthly treatments initially. Additional PRP therapy sessions may be scheduled every quarter, but this will depend on the patient’s hair loss pattern and their individual response to the treatment.

 

SmartGraft

Traditional hair transplant surgery leaves a significant scar in the back of the scalp, and also involves extended downtime. SmartGraft hair restoration is an advanced and automated follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique that enables discreet moving of donor hair to the balding sites of the scalp without any scarring.

SmartGraft procedure ensures that the hair grafts remain sufficiently cooled and hydrated in order to improve their preservation rate during transplantation.

The result is thicker and more natural looking hair in a minimally invasive way. Patients can start experiencing new hair growth in about three months, and will obtain full results in 12 to 14 months.

 

Laser Therapy for Hair Re-growth

Advanced low-level laser therapy may be used individually or in combination with other treatments to promote hair re-growth. The low level laser device will deliver focused beams of laser energy to the scalp in a precise manner.

The laser heat will gently activate proteins and encourage scalp oxygenation to stimulate blood supply and deliver nutrition to the thinning or weak hair follicles.

 

Topical and Oral Medications

Over the counter Minoxidil (Rogaine) medication and prescription-based Finasteride (Propecia) may be recommended for hair loss and hair thinning for appropriate male and female candidates.

However, the limitation with these oral and topical treatments is that the hair re-growth is not permanent and the hair begins to fall again once the treatment is stopped. The patient should discuss with their treatment provider for the best options in their case.
