Dr. Motykie’s Medical Spa COVID-19 Safety Protocols 

Safety Protocols 

med spa - Dr. Motykie’s Medical Spa COVID-19 Safety Protocols We are committed to prioritizing your health and safety at all times – and now more than ever. We have instituted comprehensive safety measures and protocols to keep you 100% safe.

  1. Call us on your arrival so that we can confirm that your room is fully sanitized and ready. 
  2. Wear a mask when you arrive at our office.

Skin Resurfacing And Rejuvenation 

Skin Rejuvenation 

17a5BbuFWuf6NQi9dUnbZo5jSSgCiI0QsWhah HnfkYw3G0LTWMLm7roHPeMkpMYB Q26OMCpqmYkGsCOJ6he4 660x630 - Skin Resurfacing And Rejuvenation Your skin is the largest and most visible organ in your body from a cosmetic perspective. If your skin is rejuvenated and refreshed, it will make you look aesthetically appealing and youthful. IPL (intense pulsed light) photofacial therapy is one of the safest med spa treatments to gently resurface and rejuvenate your skin with minimal risk and downtime.  

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

Cosmetic Benefits of IPL Skin Resurfacing  

With the IPL skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatment, you can successfully address a number of skin concerns, such as visible signs of aging, sun damage, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation. In a completely non-surgical med spa procedure that is equally beneficial for both women and men, you can turn your red, blotchy skin into a healthy, radiant complexion.  

If you suffer from mild to moderate skin imperfections or medical skin conditions, you can improve the skin appearance with IPL skin resurfacing treatment. IPL treatment will also help to mitigate the effect of wrinkles and fine lines on your face, enlarged pores, skin discoloration, freckles, and uneven skin texture.  

Facial Anti-Aging Effects of IPL Skin Resurfacing  

Loss of skin elasticity in your facial area can create a conspicuous appearance of sagging skin and prominent wrinkles, fine lines and creases. With the IPL skin rejuvenation treatments, you can reduce these signs of aging and achieve a younger looking face. The light energy will penetrate into your deeper skin layers, creating controlled heat beneath the epidermis.  

This will trigger the formation of new collagen fibrils, which will add volume to your skin and make it look naturally smooth. As the collagen continues to be generated within, it will gradually improve the facial appearance and reduce the effects of wrinkles and fine lines.  

Your skin may develop redness because of frequent sun and wind exposure, or due to skin conditions such as rosacea. This redness effect can be controlled with IPL laser skin resurfacing med spa procedure. As the light energy goes into the deeper tissue in the targeted sites, it will constrict the blood vessels that are causing redness.  

Non-Ablative Treatment  

One of the key benefits of IPL skin resurfacing is that the procedure is non-ablative and will not cause significant wounds on the skin or require a significant skin removal from the top layers. The treatment will work from within by affecting the deeper tissue, while causing no damage to the outer skin.  

If you are suffering from specific skin conditions or looking for a deeper level of skin resurfacing and rejuvenation, you may consider more intensive laser skin treatments. IPL photofacials are more suitable for treating mild to moderate skin imperfections and signs of aging. 

Recovery in case of IPL skin resurfacing and rejuvenation is much faster. You will not require any significant downtime and are not likely to go through much discomfort during or after the treatment. Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for proven and innovative cosmetic treatments.

Vascular Lesion Treatment

Vascular Lesion Treatment | Beverly Hills Medical Spa | West HollywoodVascular lesions refer to abnormal blood vessels that start becoming visible through the skin. These lesions are harmless and can occur in any area of the body, but they are most commonly seen on the face and legs. Typical vascular lesions include port wine stains, spider veins, hemangioma and telangiectasia. 

Vascular lesions can make you look older and affect the aesthetic appearance of your skin. Advance laser based med spa treatments are now available to treat vascular lesions for cosmetic purposes. 

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides safe and proven aesthetic procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities. 

 

Laser Treatment for Vascular Lesions

Laser treatments have been the gold standard for safe and effective removal of unsightly vascular lesions for several years. Laser therapy is a safe and non-surgical med spa procedure involving the application of light energy on the affected areas of your skin. 

Vascular lesions will absorb the maximum light energy, and will get heated to the point of coagulation. When this happens, the lesion will be natural absorbed by the body through the internal healing process.

 

Types of Vascular Lesions Treated with Lasers

The following are some of the common vascular lesions that can be successfully treated with a med spa laser therapy by an experienced provider: 

  • Spider veins (unsightly veins that may occur on the legs and face)
  • Port-wine stains (red birthmarks that are usually present at birth)
  • Rosacea (red facial lesions that could make you look sunburned)
  • Telangiectasia (blood vessels which may cause red thread-like lines on your skin)
  • Poikiloderma (red color pigment on your skin which could occur because of sun damage)
  • Hemangiomas (a group of bright red vessels constituting a birthmark)

 

How does the Laser Treatment Work?

Certain laser therapies are designed specifically to target the blood vessels of a vascular lesion, while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue undamaged. An experienced laser treatment provider can safely remove the pigmented tissue without causing any harm to the adjacent skin. 

The laser system includes a unique cooling device that will continue to protect the skin against overheating, while keeping you comfortable throughout the treatment session.

 

What to Expect During Your Vascular Lesion Treatment?

Your laser expert at the med spa will provide you eye protection so that the sharp light does no harm to your eyes. They will then begin to pass the laser hand piece over the treatment site. You will experience a cooling sensation prior to each laser pulse, which will ensure that your skin remains at a comfortable, tolerable temperature. 

Depending on your needs, your provider may apply topical anesthesia prior to the treatment to keep you completely comfortable during the procedure. Following the treatment process, you should wear a sunscreen as advised by your provider because your skin will be sensitive for a few days.

Spider Vein Removal Treatment

Spider Vein Removal Treatment | Beverly Hills Medical Spa | Los AngelesSpider veins and minor varicose veins are a common problem, which usually appears in the legs. One of the safest and most effective med spa treatments to remove spider veins is Asclera injections. This unique vein injection treatment involves a prescription medication that will work to eliminate the unwanted spider veins in a minimally invasive way.  

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

 

How does Asclera Injectable Treatment Work?

A sclerotherapy expert at the med spa will administer Asclera injections through tiny needs directly into the targeted spider veins in the legs. When the medication is injected in the affected vein, it will cause the blood vessel lining to swell, resulting in blockage of blood flow. Once the blood supply stops in the diseased vein, it will clot and get destroyed. 

The body’s natural metabolic process will absorb the vein, while the blood flow will be re-routed through surrounding healthy veins. As the spider vein gradually gets absorbed, the skin surface will become clear and the vein will no longer be visible. 

 

Candidacy for Sclerotherapy

You could be a candidate for Asclera injection med spa therapy if you have one or more of the following signs:

  • You are reluctant to wear skirts or shorts because the spider veins on your legs appear noticeable and unsightly 
  • You wear leg makeup or pantyhose to hide purple, blue or red veins that are showing on the skin’s surface
  • You want to avoid an invasive surgery, and seek a non-surgical spider vein removal treatment with minimal discomfort and downtime 

 

Key Features of Asclera Injections

Asclera treatment is ideal for treating uncomplicated spider veins that appear close to the skin’s surface as well as uncomplicated varicose veins that may bulge from the skin’s surface. 

An experienced treatment provider can complete one Asclera injection session in about 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the extent of the problem and your personal cosmetic goals. You may require multiple treatment sessions or follow-up appointments to achieve your desired results. 

To be safe, your provider will schedule each treatment session of sclerotherapy at least one to two weeks apart. Final outcomes with Asclera injectable treatment can be as good as what you may expect with more invasive treatments or with laser vein removal. In fact, many patients report superior results with Asclera injections compared to other treatment approaches. 

 

Choose a Well-Equipped Med Spa 

Spider vein treatment should only be performed a skilled and experienced injection provider who can deliver safe and predictable results. The injections must be placed directly into the affected vein for successful results. 

In some cases, the provider may want to examine the real condition of the veins more clearly and may order an ultrasound test. Depending on your situation, the provider should also have the ability to combine sclerotherapy with another treatment for cumulative benefits.

Laser Genesis Skin Tone & Scar Removal 

Skin Tone Rejuvenation & Acne Scar Removal 

Aging, sun damage, hormonal changes, and other factors can cause your skin tone to become dull over time. Acne scars and other types of scars on your facial skin, redness, enlarged pores, and fine lines can also compromise your overall appearance.  

‘Laser Genesis’ is an advanced laser med spa treatment designed to improve your skin tone and texture, mitigate the effect of scars, and restore a more radiant and youthful looking skin.  

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides safe and proven aesthetic procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities. 

How does it work? 

The Laser Genesis procedure will help trigger the production of new collagen fibrils that support your skin tissue and volumize it. As the controlled laser energy penetrates through the targeted areas of your upper skin layer, it will gently heat up the dermis to promote collagen, brighten your complexion and skin tone, and reduce scarring. 

Laser Genesis med spa treatment will target the tiny broken vessels beneath your skin’s surface to diffuse a ruddy complex, and help in the development of even skin tone, smoother skin texture, smaller pores, and reduction of fine lines and acne scars. If you are suffering from more intensive conditions such as rosacea, you could benefit from Laser Genesis treatment.  

Laser Genesis technique is based on the use of non-ablative laser beams. Unlike some other harsher methods, this treatment approach will not cause any damage to the top layers of your skin.

Treatment Areas 

While your treatment provider may use Laser Genesis to address almost any area of your body, you can expect to achieve best results in areas such as the face, neck and chest. Both acne scars and surgical scars can be successfully diminished with this treatment in all areas of your body. 

Another advantage is that you could be a candidate for Laser Genesis, no matter what your skin type may be. However, it would be more effective if you have a light to medium skin tone. Recovery is faster than many other ablative laser techniques because Laser Genesis will not create wounds on your skin’s surface. You may need three to six treatment sessions to obtain optional results.  

Treatment Sessions 

It will take less than one hour to complete a treatment session. It means you can even have your session performed during your lunch hour from work. Following the treatment, you can simply return to work or resume your normal activities. If you are looking to restore or maintain a healthy, smooth and glowing skin, Laser Genesis treatment is for you. 

If you want to rejuvenate your complete facial area, it may take about 45 minutes for one session. Smaller areas around the mouth and eyes (spot treatments) could be completed in less than 15 minutes. You may consider undergoing maintenance treatments every six months to delay collagen breakdown and build continuous skin improvement.

New Generation Laser Technology 

Excel V+ is the cutting-edge new generation laser technology to resolve vascular and pigmentation problems. The technology was developed with design feedback from top skin care experts.

With its two clinically proven laser wavelengths, large spot size of up to 16 mm, and superior energy delivery, you can expect the best med spa treatment outcomes for your skin problems.  

Proven Wavelengths 

Excel V+ has two unique wavelengths that are absorbed by the chromophores of browns and reds, and fine lines/wrinkles — melanin, oxyhemoglobin, and water. 

High Precision 

With the most advanced wavelengths available today for skin rejuvenation, you can receive higher energy with shorter pulse durations in larger spot sizes. Its precision delivery ensures that your surrounding healthy skin does not get affected by the treatment. 

Quick and Efficient Treatments 

Excel V+ features a large 16 mm spot size, which is the biggest in its class. It also includes adjustments for spot sizes in 0.5 mm and 1 mm increments.

Smart Cooling System 

With cooling system adjustability from 5 to 20°C, Excel V+ features advanced contact cooling that produces consistent results with each pulse. You can expect highly effective, yet safe, and comfortable treatments. 

How does it work? 

Laser energy has unique properties that allow targeted sites within your skin to be exposed to controlled damage while causing no harm to the adjacent tissue. This selective damage occurs by choosing the right wavelength of laser that gets maximally absorbed in your vascular and pigmented lesions for a very brief duration of the light impulse. 

This allows your med spa provider to target affected blood vessels, different types of pigmented and vascular birthmarks, and areas of unsightly pigmentation and deliver highly safe and desirable changes to your skin.

How Much Does Stem Cell IV Therapy Treatment Cost?

How Much Does Stem Cell IV Therapy Treatment Cost? | Beverly HillsStem cell IV therapy involves the use of living cells as a therapeutic formulation to treat illness or injury. While traditional injectable or surgical stem cell treatments may have significantly high cost, patients can benefit from a more cost-effective treatment in the form of stem cell IV therapy. 

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

 

Pricing Variables

As stem cells are derived from the living tissue, there is a cost involved in the process of stem cell extraction, purification, preservation, transport and administering the treatment to the patient. The process can vary, depending on what type of stem cell therapy is required, where the stem cell transfer is performed, and several other factors. 

Stem Cell IV med spa therapy involves the delivery of stem cells into the patient’s body intravenously. This is a relatively affordable procedure compared to more advanced treatments. The location of the treatment can also make the difference to the overall price tag. 

Another key variable is the type of medical condition that needs to be treatment with stem cell therapy. In case of stem cell IV treatment, the provider may sometimes have to combine the formulation with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, plant extracts, hyaluronic acid, or other elements according to the patient’s needs. This kind of customization could influence the cost of treatment. 

 

Safety is an Added Factor in the Cost Equation

Stem Cell IV therapy is still a relatively new and evolving treatment. Researchers have made major advancements in this field, but the medical research is still continuing, and all forms of stem cell treatments still need to be administered with maximum care and attention to the patient’s safety.

It is vital to choose to an experienced med spa treatment provider for Stem Cell IV therapy. The best approach would be to choose a med spa that is headed and supervised by a board certified plastic surgeon. These surgeons will invest in best medical practices, adopt the latest techniques and technology, and pursue ongoing education to ensure their patients receive the safest and most effective solutions. 

When patients choose a qualified med spa led by a board certified plastic surgeon, they know that they are in safe hands for their stem cell IV therapy. The dollar amount of treatment this type of a medical spa could be slightly higher, but it is worth choosing a proven expert rather than accepting this treatment from a less qualified, inexperienced, or unreliable provider.

 

Insurance and Financing

Insurance coverage for Stem Cell IV therapy may not be possible because the treatment has not yet been approved by the FDA. Insurers continue to view stem cell treatments as alternative therapies, even though research has shown the proven medical benefits of stem cell IV therapy. 

But patients may consider having their procedure financed through one of the professional medical care financing firms. These firms offer competitive packages with low interest rates for people seeking medical, cosmetic, and alternative treatments which are not covered by insurance. 

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

What is Stem Cell IV Therapy Treatment

What is Stem Cell IV Therapy Treatment | Beverly Hills | Los AngelesStem cells are immensely promising in helping us understand and treat a wide range of diseases, injuries, and medical conditions. The potential of these cells is apparent in the use of blood stem cells to treat blood diseases as well as in the use of stem cells for tissue grafts in the treatment of diseases or injury to the skin, bone, and eye surface. 

Today, important clinical trials involving the use of stem cells in ongoing for various conditions, and researchers continue to explore new possibilities in the use of stem cells in medicine. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides stem cell IV therapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities. 

 

Stem Cell IV Therapy: Benefits

It is vital to understand what makes stem cells so advantageous and offers stem cell IV therapy the ability to bring about this healing. Stem cells have the below-mentioned unique attributes, uses, and healing capabilities:

These cells are “unspecialized,” which means that stem cells can be taken from one area of the body and replaced into another one that is compromised. These cells have the ability to change into the precise type of cell required to help perform repair work. 

Stem cells are unlike other cells in that they can divide and convert into another type of cell with a specialized function (a red blood cell, muscle cell, brain cell, heart cell, etc.)

As they contain natural growth factors, stem cells can bolster the body’s natural healing abilities and reduce pain without the need for pain-killing meds. They reproduce rapidly and can continue dividing in sites even after long durations of inactivity. Therefore, the advantages manifest within a short span of time. 

A majority of patients need treatments for anywhere between a week to three months. However, many begin to experience a reduction in pain, enhanced mobility, and better general functionality within one to two IV treatments.

 

Can Be Used to Improve Cardiovascular Function

Cardiovascular diseases can lead to the heart tissue being deprived of oxygen and cause the formation of scar tissue, which alters blood flow/blood pressure. 

Researchers indicate that stem cells can convert into those cells required to repair the heart and blood vessels due to the secretion of multiple growth factors. The various ways in which stem cell IV therapy is now being used and further researched in regards to heart disease recovery are:

  • Assisting in the stimulation of the repair and growth of blood vessel tissue
  • Producing specialized muscle cells of the heart to develop new tissue
  • Reducing the formation of scar tissue, assisting in the restoration of blood supply and blood pressure capacity
  • Decreasing overstretching of cardiac cells, which helps restore normal cardiac output and prevents heart failure
  • Enhancing the development of new capillaries

 

Helps Heal Wounds and Incisions

According to research studies, stem cell IV treatments can help enhance the development of healthy new skin tissue, improve collagen generation, promote hair growth after loss or incisions, and help replace scar tissue with newly developed healthy tissue. 

Stem cells help facilitate wound healing in various ways, including by enhancing the concentrations of collagen in the skin, which constricts as it matures and thereby fortified and tightens the damaged sites. 

This same mechanism is also useful in the treatment of connective tissue injuries pertaining to cartilage/collagen loss, such as those caused by osteoporosis or overuse affecting tendons or ligaments. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for stem cell IV therapy.

Understanding Different Thread Lift Procedures: NovaThreads And Silhouette InstaLift

Thread Lift Procedures: NovaThreads And Silhouette | Beverly HillsThe face is the most noticeable area of the body, and signs of aging will be more apparent on the face. A facelift cosmetic surgery can restore a youthful-looking face. 

However, many people do not want to undergo a major invasive procedure for various reasons. The NovaThreads and Silhouette InstaLift skin-tightening procedures offer an effective, non-surgical med spa solution for these people.

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

 

What are NovaThreads?

NovaThreads is an innovative rejuvenation treatment that involves hypodermic needles. These needles are preloaded with PDO absorbable sutures. PDO refers to a synthetic absorbable surgical suture comprising polydioxanone.

PDO is widely recognized in medical usage as it is one of the safest available materials to be introduced in the body. The skin fully absorbs the suture in around four to six months of the procedure. The NovaThreads treatment will not cause the development of any scar tissue, unlike facial cosmetic surgery.

 

How does it Work?

The NovaThreads facial rejuvenation procedure leverages the natural selective inflammatory response of the body. After the procedure is undertaken, it will encourage this response for the skin to heal itself naturally. After the provider has inserted NovaThreads into the impacted sites of the neck and face, the production of new collagen will occur in the deeper layers of the skin.

Fresh collagen will add fullness to the thinning facial areas, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and create a rejuvenated facial appearance. The skin will continue to heal for around four to six months while the PDO suture is slowly absorbed. This controlled healing happens beneath the skin, developing more natural and sustainable results. 

 

What is Silhouette InstaLift

Aging effects are usually more prominent in the neck and face region. Even if a person has maintained an optimal fitness level and a well-proportioned body, loose facial skin, deep neck creases and neck bands, a jowly appearance, and noticeable smile lines can make them look old.

Facelift cosmetic surgery is an effective and proven procedure to reverse the signs of facial aging. However, many people do not want to undergo this surgery for various reasons. The advanced non-surgical anti-aging med spa procedure known as Silhouette InstaLift may be ideal for such people.

This innovative, minimally invasive procedure can correct sagging skin in the neck and face to restore a tauter, smoother skin appearance in these sites. 

 

Procedure

Silhouette InstaLift uses a re-absorbable suture and bidirectional cones to lift and stabilize the drooping mid-face and neck tissue. The improvement with this procedure happens in two phases. The patient will experience a certain amount of neck and face lift right after the procedure. In the next stage, the results will continually enhance over several months.

This occurs as the suture and cones encourage the production of new collagen fibers in the deeper tissue. Fresh collagen adds fullness to the depleted sites and helps create longer-lasting, more natural-looking, and smoother results over time.

PDO Thread Lift Non-Invasive Facelift Risks And Safety

PDO Thread Lift Non-Invasive Facelift Risks And Safety | Beverly HillsA PDO Thread Lift is a minimally invasive aesthetic med spa procedure. In this procedure, the treatment provider numbs and administers local anesthesia to the targeted area, and then inserts the PDO threads using blunt or sharp tip needles (known as cannulas) into different layers of the skin. 

The threads anchor the skin once they are inserted and lift it upwards. After this, the excess threads are trimmed off. The procedure takes between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the treatment areas. The patient will experience some discomfort during the procedure. However, due to advanced techniques, patients are experiencing less and less pain.

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

 

Is PDO Thread Lift Safe? What are the Potential Side Effects?

The PDO thread lift is a surprisingly safe treatment. In comparison to fillers, the side effects are much milder. Fillers can even lead to blindness and skin death. PDO threads are placed using needles and not surgically, and are absorbed in six to eight months. 

Therefore, many of the side effects related to older thread lifting procedures, such as thread breakage and infection, are minimized as well. 

Bruising may or may not occur, depending on the types of threads used and areas addressed. The high definition lift causes minimal to no bruising. 

The patient will experience some mild inflammation and soreness for three to five days after the procedure, as well as a sensation of tightness (mild) for up to two weeks. There may also be temporary mild dimpling of the skin, which will resolve by itself in a few days.  

Many side effects are associated with the technique of insertion, and the types of threads used. These include side effects such as surface depressions and thread migration, as well as extrusion facial asymmetry, prolonged discomfort, and dimpling. All PDO threads are not identical. The expertise of the med spa treatment provider is critical to ensuring a good result with minimal side effects from the thread lift procedure.

Lastly, more severe side effects are rare but may occur. Some of these side effects are nerve damage, infection, development of nodules, and damage to the salivary ducts. The anatomical structure of the face is very complex. The doctor must have an in-depth knowledge of anatomy to undertake a PDO thread lift effectively and safely.

Most of these side effects are manageable. In cases of migration and extrusion, the removal of threads may be necessary. 

 

How to Minimize Side Effects?

Similar to other treatments involving injections, the patient should avoid alcohol as well as supplements such as Omega Fish oils and Vitamin E before and after the procedure. They should also avoid using the steam room and sauna, and performing vigorous exercises such as High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).

The patient will also be discouraged from undergoing any oral treatment (which requires them to open their mouth excessively) for two weeks after the PDO Thread Lift. They are also advised to sleep on their backs to enable the inflammation to resolve and to avoid causing strain on the face that might lead to the misalignment of the threads.

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for PDO thread lift.
