BTL EXILIS Ultra Plump: For The Delicate And Highly Visible Skin Around The Lips

BTL EXILIS Ultra Plump: For The Delicate And Highly Visible Skin Around The Lips

Improve Delicate Skin Around The Lips

BTL Exilis Ultra Plump is an ultrasound and radiofrequency device which helps in improving the delicate skin surrounding the lips. The device comes with separate handsets for treating the neck and face and the rest of the body. Handset for the body has a fat reduction option as well.

Existing and ‘tired’ elastin and collagen in the lips can be stimulated using Exilis Ultra Plump. The body is incited into creating new reserves for these materials allowing the skin to develop a more youthful and tauter appearance. The procedure comes with fewer post-treatment instructions and zero downtime. Exilis Ultra Plump has been recognized as the best skin tightening and lip enhancement option.

At the time of your pre-op consultation, your treatment provider will explain you the best non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment options for your lips. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides BTL Exilis Ultra Plump to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

Advantages on the Lip Area

Exilis Ultra Plump allows for smoothening fine lines and providing subtle fullness to the lips. The treatment is comfortable, quick and can be completed in less than 10 minutes.

Results to Expect

You will notice an initial softening of lines around the lips and mild plumping. These are immediately visible after the treatment. The results will continue to progress with subsequent treatments. This is because your body will get stimulated into rebuilding its depleted elastin and collagen reserves.

Recommended Number of Sessions

Most treatment providers recommend at least four sessions. Patients are asked to return every 6 to 8 months for maintenance treatments.

Reliable Alternative to Fillers

BTL Exilis Ultra Plump is a great alternative to dermal fillers. People who don’t want the dramatic results of fillers will enjoy the subtle fullness that comes with Exilis Ultra Plump. The treatment is ideal for patients wanting softer and more natural looking lip enhancements without any downtime or needles associated with fillers. The procedure also works as a nice bridge option for plumping lips that were previously injected.

Procedure and Expected Results

Your cosmetic surgeon will explain everything about the procedure in detail to you during the initial consultation. You can opt to move forward with the procedure then. While Exilis Ultra may not bring home Kylie Jenner lips, it will surely give your pout that subtle plump. The treatment is comfortable and absolutely painless.

The technician shall apply an ultrasound gel around the chin region and the lip. They will then use something feeling like a warm rollerball over the area in a specific concentrated pattern. The ball will be moved in increments of 4 and 6 minutes. The experience is often equated with getting a hot stone massage.

You may notice your lips appearing smoother after the first treatment. It is possible for some of the fine lines to be immediately plumped as well. You may require additional treatments spanning over the course of a few months for optimal results. The effects of this treatment are very subtle, yet your lips will look and feel smoother. Your bottom lip may seem plumper too.

Motykie Med Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for BTL Exilis treatments.

BTL EXILIS Ultra Tight: For The Delicate Skin Around The Eyes, Neck, Face, And Décolletage

Tighten Skin Around The Eyes, Neck, and Face

The building blocks in your skin will start to break down with age. This causes the skin to lose its elasticity and firmness, which can lead to wrinkles and fine lines making you appear older than you actually are. Exilis Ultra Tight by BTL Aesthetics is a safe and non-invasive procedure for treating lax skin around the face, eyes, neck, and décolletage.

BTL Exilis Ultra Tight is a pioneer aesthetic device and the first of its kind to employ a state of the art combination of ultrasound energy and radio frequency. The procedure addresses a broad range of cosmetic concerns around the face, neck, eyes, and décolletage. The unit’s RF energy allows for heating the tissue in an easier and faster way. The results of the treatment are consistent, superior, comfortable, and safe.

During your initial consultation with the treatment provider, discuss the pros and cons of the procedure for your skin enhancement in the face, neck, eyes, and décolletage. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides BTL Exilis Ultra Tight to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

Candidacy for BTL Exilis Ultra

Patients of all ages can safely undergo the BTL Exilis Ultra Tight treatment. Skin tone, BMI and extent of skin laxity do not play a role in determining ideal candidacy. You can opt for this treatment when you want superior results without the recovery time and cost accompanying cosmetic surgeries. Pregnant or nursing women and people with pacemakers are the only candidates that are not suitable for this treatment. This is because the ultrasound device’s RF energy tends to interfere.

Exilis Process

The Exilis Ultra uses controlled cooling, real-time temperature monitoring, square spectrum energy profiling, and impedance intelligence. It is a multi-application ultrasound and radiofrequency platform. The broad array of features allows for customizable options. Radiofrequency energy is transmitted by Exilis to tighten the skin and shrink fat cells by stimulating collagen production.

Patient comfort is ensured by using an energy flow control system to treat the targeted area. The treatment offers superior results because of uniform energy pulses. Skin on the body and face can be tightened and contoured with Exilis treatment. Ultra Tight device can be used for treating the face and chest.

Exilis Ultra 360 is a non-invasive procedure and can be performed in the office without the need for anesthesia or surgery. Optimal effects may require a series of treatments. However, you should see results within 1 to 3 treatments. Complete benefits may take up to 3 months from the last treatment to manifest.

Benefits of Exilis Treatment

Patients can achieve non-invasive and non-surgical skin tightening with Exilis Ultra Tight. There are several benefits to this office-based treatment. Few of the more pertinent ones are:

  • Patient comfort: Treatments are painless and don’t last for more than 30 to 45 minutes
  • Fewer sittings: Advanced ultrasound and RD technology allows for covering large areas faster and in a better manner than other skin tightening options.
  • Safe: All areas of the body can be safely treated
  • All skin types: The treatment can be used on both men and women with any type of skin

Mole / Skin Tag Removal 

Mole and Skin Tag Removal Options

The best of skin complexions is easily marred by outgrowths such as skin tags and moles that may occur on the face and neck. They don’t need to be a cause for worry though because our surgeons are experts at removing these growths.  

Using latest med spa techniques such as snip or shape removal, liquid nitrogen cryotherapy, electrodessication and laser treatments, moles and skin tags can be easily removed leaving behind only the tiniest of scars. 

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

When should I see a doctor about a mole? 

Most mole growths are not dangerous, but few may grow into melanoma which is a type of skin cancer. If you experience any of the following conditions, you should see a plastic surgeon at once: 

  • Itching or burning sensation or pain in the mole 
  • Discharge of blood or other fluid from a mole 
  • Blurring of the borders of the mole, or changes in its structure 
  • Darkening or texture changes or irregular coloring of the mole 

What skin tag treatment or mole treatment options are possible? 

Removing skin tags and mole removal is possible using several different techniques such as surgical scissors, electrosurgery or cryosurgery. The cosmetic surgeon will decide which particular method to use depending on the size and number of skin tags or moles.  

Surgical scissors is the simplest med spa treatment method to remove skin tags along with the attached stem to prevent its re-growth. Moles on the skin surface may be removed entirely by shaving.  

Electrosurgery makes use of an electric current to burn away the topmost layers of the mole or skin tag. Skin tags are easier to remove in a single sitting by simply burning the stalk that holds the skin tag in contact with your skin. Moles may require repeat treatments for complete removal. 

Cryosurgery involves freezing of the mole or skin tag. When the treatment provider applies a small quantity of liquid nitrogen onto the affected area, it gets frozen and can be gently removed from there.  

To avoid discomfort, the area from where the skin tag or mole is to be removed will be rendered numb before the start of the procedure. A little redness, blistering, and discomfort in the treated area is quite common following the procedure. With these advanced techniques that are minimally invasive, permanent marks or scars are very rare.  

How does skin growth removal with cryotherapy work? 

Cryotherapy is one of the most common techniques used to remove skin growths such as skin tags, moles, and warts. In this procedure, extremely cold temperature is created, which leads to the formation of icicles within cells of the affected area. A blister forms between the skin’s epidermal layer and the undesirable skin outgrowth, damaging it in the process. The outgrowths or lesions then turn into scabs which later fall off on their own. 

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

What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? 

Nonsurgical Options to Help Build a Strong Jaw Line Non-surgically

A strong jaw line and chin have a huge impact on your facial appearance by making you appear more fit and young. A receding jaw line or a recessed chin tends to weaken the symmetry of your face and this may change the youthfulness and attractiveness of your appearance.  

Loose skin and jowls often persist despite the best efforts at exercise and diet control. If you find this happening to you, or if you are one of those persons who have always had a weak jaw line, don’t worry! Several non-surgical med spa options are now available to help you improve the attractiveness of your chin and jaw line. 

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

Nonsurgical options 

Nonsurgical options work best if you have: 

  • fairly well-defined chin with moderate amount of surrounding loose skin. 
  • Mild or moderate fat around the chin obscuring the jaw line. 

These options include dermal fillers, neurotoxin treatment, fat melting injectables, and surgical threads. 

Dermal fillers 

Dermal fillers are best for those who have a mildly weak jaw line with no hardness visible at the bony edge. Injecting the fillers into the jaw line enhances the edges of the mandible and the bony angle, improving its hardness.  

The quantity of dermal filler required differs based on the anatomy of your jaw line, and the degree of definition you want to attain. Generally, about 1-4 syringes suffice and results are quick to show, with the effects lasting for a year to 18 months. 

Neurotoxin to the masseter muscles 

The bulge you feel at the jaw ends when you clench your teeth are the masseter muscles. Placing Botulinum toxin (Dysport, Botox, or Xeomin) med spa injections directly into these muscles helps to thin them.  

This injection of the neurotoxin pulls your face into a V-like shape and renders your face slimmer in appearance. Visible results generally require about 84-168 units of Dysport or 30-60 units of Botox/Xeomin per side and results last for around 4 months.  

Kybella for melting chin and neck fat 

Mild amounts of excess fat in the chin and neck region respond well to a fat melting agent such as Kybella that is made of deoxycholic acid. The on-label use is restricted to the double chin area; injections to the edges and back portions of the jaw line are considered off-label use.  

The quantity of Kybella to be injected depends on the amount of fat in your jaw region. On an average, 1-6 vials may be necessary. This process melts the fat physically, leading to permanent results, provided you keep your overall weight in check.  

Surgical threads for loose skin 

Placing surgical threads around the jowls helps with tightening skin that is slightly loose. Depending on the amount of loose skin and the width of your jowls, about 4-8 threads may be required. Surgical threads usually retain their tightening effect for 6-12 months. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for chin and jawline augmentation.

Types of IV Therapy: Myers’ Cocktail 

Myers’ Cocktail IV Therapy Clinic

Myers’ Cocktail is a time-tested med spa IV therapy to provide relief from chronic symptoms, such as muscle pain, stress, fatigue, and inflammation. With a unique blend of hydration and multivitamins, this infusion is known to boost immunity, and relieve migraines, muscle cramps and anxiety. Most patients are able to achieve better restoration of their mind, body and soul balance following Myers’ Cocktail IV therapy.  

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Myers’ Cocktail IV therapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.  

How does it work? 

Myers’ Cocktail contains active ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin B12 and B complex, magnesium, and calcium. Vitamin C supports the production of immune system cells and fights pathogens. The antioxidant properties of vitamin C help reduce irritation and inflammation of the tissue that may be occurring because of free radicals.  

Vitamins B12 and B complex promote energy generation in the body by acting as cofactors in the metabolic activity. This enables the patient to fight fatigue and feel active and energetic. Magnesium is needed for DNA replication, transcription into RNA and translation into protein. Your body also requires magnesium for over 300 biochemical reactions.  

Other benefits of magnesium include maintenance of nerve and muscle function, keeping the immune system healthy, aiding bone density, and regulating heart beat. Calcium, which is another ingredient in Myers’ Cocktail med spa IV therapy, supports the skeletal structure and function. Calcium helps in blood clotting, cell signaling, nerve function, muscle contraction, and improved cellular absorption. 

Background of Myers’ Cocktail Therapy 

This intravenous therapy was created by a pioneer doctor John Myers, M.D., who was working to treat the symptoms of chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia, asthma, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Over the years, Myers’ Cocktail has come to be recognized as a safe and proven IV therapy that can make patients feel rejuvenation for extended time periods and even promote their athletic performance.  

Myers’ Cocktail IV therapy also produces positive outcomes when it is applied to the treatment of conditions, such as acute muscle spasm, fatigue, migraines, infection of the upper respiratory tract, seasonal allergies, chronic sinusitis, and cardiovascular disease. For decades, it has been recognized as one of the most effective solutions in IV therapy.  

Specific Health Benefits  

Here are some of the health and wellness benefits of Myers’ Cocktail IV therapy: 

  • Treating chronic fatigue syndrome as well as general body weakness 
  • Boosting the immune system  
  • Alleviating the symptoms of fibromyalgia 
  • Reducing acute or chronic muscle spasms 
  • Treating allergies and asthma  
  • Improving migraine symptoms rapidly  
  • Relief from tension headaches 
  • Helping in withdrawal from drug addiction  
  • Treating seasonal rhinitis  
  • Improving all kinds of respiratory ailments 
  • Treating bronchitis and sinusitis  
  • Fighting cardiovascular disease 
  • Expediting the recovery from injuries  
  • Preventing ischemic vascular disease  

Benefits of this IV therapy can vary between patients, but in general this treatment has substantially improved the health and well-being of patients. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Myers’ Cocktail IV therapy.

Types of IV Therapy: Glutathione 

Glutathione Immune Boosting IV Therapy Clinic

Every cell of your body contains a unique antioxidant called glutathione. It is composed of three different molecules, which are grouped together as amino acids. They combine in multiple patterns to produce all the protein in your body. Glutathione med spa IV therapy offers a number of health benefits for the right candidates.  

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

Vital Functions of Glutathione for Your Health 

Here are some of the key functions that glutathione IV therapy can perform for your health:  

  • Helping in the production of DNA, the building blocks of cells and proteins  
  • Boosting the immune function 
  • Formation of sperm cells 
  • Promoting certain enzyme functions 
  • Breaking down a few free radicals 
  • Eliminating mercury from the brain  
  • Regenerating vitamin C and E in the body 
  • Helping gall bladder and liver resolve the fats 
  • Supporting regular cell death (apoptosis process) 

Low levels of glutathione have been linked with certain diseases. You can improve your glutathione levels with intravenous supplementation (IV therapy).  

Benefits of Glutathione IV Therapy 

Antioxidant Activity  

Free radicals are responsible for accelerating aging and certain diseases. Antioxidants play a key role in counteracting free radicals and protecting the body against their damaging impact. As a strong antioxidant, glutathione can neutralize the effects of free radicals when taken in higher doses through med spa IV therapy.  

Prevention of Cancer Progression  

According to some researchers, glutathione can help in prevention of cancer progression. However, scientific evidence is not yet established and researchers have not concluded what could be the precise benefits of glutathione IV therapy for cancer patients.  

Curbing Cellular Damage in the Liver  

Fatty liver disease, alcohol abuse and hepatitis can cause damage to the liver cells. A 2017 clinical trial has concluded that glutathione might assist in the treatment of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease because of the chemical’s potential to detoxify the body. 

Increasing Insulin Sensitivity 

Type 2 diabetes may occur because of insulin resistance in the body. A 2018 research study has indicated that patients with insulin resistance might suffer from lower levels of glutathione. Therefore, glutathione IV therapy could help to improve insulin sensitivity in some of the patients.  

Treating Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease  

Some researchers believe that good levels of glutathione in the body could help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. While oral supplementation may not work, IV therapy could offer benefits to the patients.  

Reducing Damage Related to Ulcerative Colitis 

Ulcerative colitis, just like other inflammatory diseases, could occur because of oxidative stress and related damage. A 2003 research study indicates that supplementation of glutathione could improve some of the colon damage.  

More research is certainly required to conclusively determine the benefits of glutathione IV therapy for specific diseases. However, it is clear that the therapy may offer general health benefits and boost the disease fighting ability of patients in many cases.  

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for glutathione IV therapy.

Types of IV Therapy: Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) 

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) Antioxidant IV Therapy Clinic

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant that naturally occurs in potatoes, spinach, broccoli, and yeast and is also found in the kidneys and liver. Synthetic ALA can also be formulated in labs for medicinal purposes. 

Alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy can produce effective outcomes for patients suffering from diabetes, and can provide relief from nerve related symptoms of diabetes, such as numbness, pain, and burning in the arms and legs.  

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.  

How does it work? 

ALA is known to help in the prevention of some types of cellular damage in the body. It also assists in the restoration of vitamin levels, such as vitamin C and vitamin E. Research has shown that alpha-lipoic acid can promote the function of neurons in diabetics.  

The body uses ALA to break down carbs and generate energy for various body organs. In its role as an antioxidant, ALA works to protect the brain under conditions of injury or damage. Certain liver diseases can also improve because of the antioxidant effects of this chemical. 

Potential Benefits  

Anti-Aging Effects for the Skin 

Researchers have indicated that alpha-lipoic acid med spa therapy can help improve fine lines and reduce roughness in the skin that may have occurred due to sun damage. In combination with other treatments, ALA intravenous therapy may also improve skin elasticity, and make your skin appear smoother and more youthful.  

Improving Blood Flow after Surgery 

IV therapy with alpha-lipoic acid can possibly reduce complications from a surgical procedure because it helps improve blood flow. The therapy may have to be taken for up to several weeks prior to the surgery as well as after the surgery for best results.  

Reducing Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes  

Alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy can improve the levels of blood sugar in type 2 diabetes patients. Some patients may benefit more than others, which will depend on how long the patient has been suffering from diabetes, whether they are taking anti-diabetes drugs, and more importantly, the purity of the ALA therapy.  

Relief from Nerve Pain Related to Diabetes 

A dose of 600 to 1800 mg of ALA through IV may improve diabetic neuropathy symptoms, such as pain, numbness, and burning sensation in the arms and legs. The treatment may be required for at least three to five weeks to see improvement. Lower doses of ALA or oral treatment are not likely to work. 

Interstitial Cystitis (Painful Bladder Syndrome) 

Women may suffer from pelvic pain due to bladder inflammation. Alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy along with certain other minerals, vitamins and fats could help reduce pelvic pain.  

In some cases, this med spa therapy is known to improve body weight in people who suffer from obesity or overweight. Early research also indicates that ALA therapy in conjunction with some other drugs could help alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.  

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy.

Types of IV Therapy: High Dose Vitamin C 

High Dose Vitamin C IV Therapy Clinic

L –ascorbic acid or vitamin C is a vital ingredient that your body needs every day through food or dietary supplements because it does not get naturally produced in the body. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that helps to combat and prevent oxidative stress. The nutrient also works with enzymes to promote natural collagen formation for more youthful looking skin.  

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides high dose vitamin C IV therapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.  

Benefits of Vitamin C in High Doses 

Compared to oral intake of vitamin C supplements, you can achieve much higher levels of vitamin C in your blood if you take it through IV (intravenous) infusion. Research indicates that higher levels of this vitamin may have numerous health benefits, and may even cause the destruction of cancer cells in the body.  

Deficiency of vitamin C in your daily diet over a period of time may lead to scurvy, which is disease marked by lethargy, weakness, bleeding, and easy bruising. Patients with scurvy also suffer from collagen depletion in the deeper skin layers.  

High dose vitamin C infusion through med spa IV therapy can restore the healthy levels quickly in your body, trigger fresh collagen production, and make you look and feel healthy, energized, and more youthful.  

Fighting Cancer with High Dose Vitamin C Therapy 

Over the last 50 years, researchers have studied the benefits of high dose vitamin C therapy given intravenously for cancer patients. Nobel prize winning chemists and doctors researched the potential benefits of IV therapy with vitamin C in clinical trials involving patients of cancer.  

Surveys of medical professionals as well as their research papers and arguments put forward at various healthcare conferences in recent years have also indicated that high dose IV based vitamin C therapy may be useful for the treatment of some types of cancer, including breast cancer. In addition, it is a commonly used therapy to treat infections and fatigue.  

Scientists have indicated several decades ago in their research that cancer is a diseases associated with changes in the connective tissue that occur because of deficiency of vitamin C. Researchers proposed in the 1970s that high doses of ascorbic acid can help you build immunity to infection or disease, and possibly treat cancer. 

Lab Studies Related to Vitamin C Therapy 

A number of laboratory studies have been conducted to determine whether high dose IV med spa therapy of vitamin C can be useful in combating or preventing cancer and other diseases. The disease fighting effects of vitamin C involve a chemical reaction that produces hydrogen peroxide, which could kill diseased cells or even malignant cells.  

Laboratory studies have also shown that:  

  • Treatment with high dose vitamin C intravenous therapy can slow the growth of diseased cells or malignant cells in the liver, colon, pancreas, and prostate.  
  • Combination of vitamin C in high doses with some other types of drugs can produce successful results in the treatment various complex diseases and cancers.  

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for high dose vitamin C IV therapy.

Types of IV Therapy: Chelation Therapy Metal Detox

Chelation IV Therapy Clinic

Metals such as mercury, lead, arsenic, and iron can get deposited in your body in toxic quantities. Chelation IV therapy is a safe and effective treatment involving medications that will eliminate these metals from your body to prevent illness.  

Chelation therapy has been successfully used by holistic treatment providers to improve or manage the symptoms of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and autism. It’s crucial to choose an experienced med spa treatment provider to receive this IV therapy in a safe and controlled medical environment.  

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

How Does it Work? 

Your provider will customize the chelation therapy using special drugs that bind to the metal residue in your blood. While these drugs are also available in pill form, you can obtain faster and more impactful results by receiving these chelating medications intravenously through an IV tube in your arm. 

When the metal residue attaches with the drug, it will exit from your body in a natural manner through urine. Prior to your treatment, your provider may order a few tests to determine the quantity of metal in your blood.  

Conditions Treated 

The FDA has approved chelation therapy to treat the symptoms of metal poisoning. However, a number of holistic healthcare providers are successfully using chelation therapy for off-label treatments to improve the symptoms of a number of serious diseases and conditions. Research has shown positive outcomes for the following major diseases: 

Autism  

Some researchers are of the view that autism is carried by mercury in the vaccines received during childhood. Chelation therapy can help to remove mercury from the body to improve the symptoms of autism. However, the American Academy of Pediatrics has said that chelation is not an evidence-based treatment for autism because clinical trials are still going on.  

Alzheimer’s Disease 

Patients suffering from Alzheimer’s have a buildup of abnormal proteins called beta amyloid and tau in their brain, which causes damage to the brain tissue. No treatments are currently available to stop or reverse this condition.  

Some researchers, however, believe that deposits of metals such as iron, zinc, and copper may have a role to play in the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Based on this research, some treatment providers are able to offer chelation med spa therapy to treat the symptoms of Alzheimer’s.  

Heart Disease 

Heart disease occurs when plaque forms in the arteries, which restricts the flow of blood to the heart. Artery plaque contains excess calcium, which narrows the blood vessels. With chelating drug called disodium EDTA, it is possible to bind calcium, and clear it from the blood vessels in order to restore free flow of blood through the arteries.  

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) conducted a large study on chelation therapy in 2002. This study called TACT found that this therapy somewhat reduced the risk of strokes, heart attacks and other heart related conditions. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for chelation IV therapy.

Laser Genesis Skin Tone & Scar Removal Before & After Photos 

Laser Genesis Skin Tone & Scar Removal 

Laser Genesis is a safe and proven non-ablative skin care treatment for people who want to improve skin tone and reduce certain types of scars and other skin imperfections without surgery. During the consultation, the medical spa laser expert will discuss various aspects of Laser Genesis procedure, and may also provide before and after images related to the procedure. 

You should feel free to ask questions from your provider and carefully review the before and after photos in order to make an informed choice. Motykie Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Laser Genesis skin tone and scar removal treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.  

Laser Genesis Before and After Pictures

Before and after photographs in case of Laser Genesis med spa skin care procedure refer to a set of images pertaining to a previous patient who has undergone the same treatment successfully. The set includes photos taken before the laser procedure and after the procedure at a time when maximum effects of the treatment have appeared.  

The medical spa laser provider will take care to ensure that the images are obtained with the express consent of the patient and shown to new patients in an appropriate manner. The patient’s identity may be kept undisclosed as per protocol. The goal of the laser treatment provider is to educate new patients about various aspects of the procedure, while using these pictures as a visual aid. 

Now these exact images are not seen on the website currently but that does not mean that cannot change at any time because putting images on a website does not take too long. Dr. Motykie’s breathtaking website satisfies so many but to see these specific images you will have to make a date for a consultation which is critical anyway for anyone who is interested in this particular type of surgery.  

Benefits 

A new patient who is considering a laser based skin care procedure for the first time may have concerns about how heat energy from the laser may affect their skin surface, and what degree of skin tone improvement and scar reduction may occur with Laser Genesis med spa treatment.  

Some patients may only require a limited facial treatment, while some others may need the laser treatment in multiple areas such as the face, neck, and chest.  

Sometimes the treatment provider may recommend a combination of Laser Genesis with other medical spa non-invasive procedures to meet the patient’s goals. In each situation, the patient can make better decisions when they have access to Laser Genesis before and after photos.  

Staying Realistic about the Results 

Maximum satisfaction from any non-surgical medical spa procedure can usually be achieved when the patient has clear cosmetic goals, a positive frame of mind, and realistic expectations. A new patient may not know in advance what the Laser Genesis treatment can or cannot do for them.  

If the patient misinterprets the laser expert’s explanations during the initial consultation, it could result in disappointment later onThese types of unpleasant situations can be avoided if the laser treatment provider makes use of Laser Genesis before and after photographs at the very first appointment.  

With the help of these images, the patient will have a much better idea of what to expect, and they will be more likely to achieve satisfaction from the final results. 

Social Photos  

A medical treatment provider may decide to share Laser Genesis before and after pictures via social media platforms in order to educate potential patients about this kind of treatment. What’s amazing about digital images is their clarity. Gone are the days of Polaroid images or someone expecting you to make a crucial decision based on some vague pictures on some dated brochure.  

Those days have long passed and this established medica spa does not expect anyone to make a decision they are uncomfortable with.  

Motykie Med Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Laser Genesis skin care treatments and various other non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures.
