Love This Procedure! – West Hollywood, CA
26 Apr 2015
I had some stubborn fat on my abdomen that has been there even though I work out a lot. As I’ve gotten older and into my 40s I have stubborn fat on my hips and bra fat. I had CoolSculpting 8 weeks ago and it’s all been reduced. I love the results. The stomach caused some pain about a week after the procedure but it wasn’t unbearable and controlled with Advil and Benadryl at bedtime for the itching. I had my hips re-treated 2 weeks ago. Already my pants fit looser and I’m very happy. I was warned that I may experience some pain in my abdomen after. What I experienced was much less than I expected! 🙂 – smartty

This is my second time back at this spa. My visits are only getting better!! I had Dr. Roger Tsai this time. He was extremely helpful with all my questions and concerns regarding treatment. He was very honest and made me feel very comfortable and took his time with everything that was going on. I will definitely recommend him, this spa and all their services to anyone. A big thumbs up!!! :-))

I had a great experience having injections for the first time. I had my lips done and some botox. I was a little nervous but the RN was great and really made me feel comfortable. She knew exactly what was the perfect amount for me so it wouldn’t look like too much or over done! The recovery information she told me about was very helpful so I wasn’t feeling in the dark about anything. All in all, it was a great experience and I will definitely go back again! You can’t beat those deals and prices.  – Alex I.Los Angeles, CA

No photoshopdone just looking relaxed after Dr. Sai special touch.Was scared to try someone new for botox. I was told a male doctor was going to do my injections. I was really surprised and happy that he was light handed and no bruising. I usually bruise every time.  I will definitely be back for botox again. Dr. Tsai is amazing.

I have always been really self-conscious of my tiny little bird lips and always wanted to get them done, but would seem to always chicken out when the time came (no pun intended ;P). So for my birthday this year I was determined that I was going to go through with it and look fabulous for my big day. After a ton of research I finally decided that I wanted to go to Kellie Gate at Motykie Med Spa for my injections.
I don’t think many businesses understand the importance of having a good receptionist. I have cancelled and decided to take my business elsewhere for the sole purpose of terrible customer service from the receptionist. Motykie Med Spa definitely knows this though because I felt so comfortable by the time I actually came in to get my procedure. They were so friendly, accommodating, and answered all of my questions. Even after my procedure they called me and checked up on me and answered all my first timer crazy questions! It really made me feel like my business was appreciated and they truly cared.
When I first arrived at the spa for my procedure I was impressed with how beautiful the spa was. It’s very modern, clean and sophisticated. After a couple minutes of filling out paperwork the RN pulled me in to the back room to have my consultation. She put a mirror in my hand and said to tell her exactly what I didn’t like and what changes I would like to see. She then applied numbing cream (Thank god!) and let it absorb for 30-40 minutes. When the time finally came I was extremely nervous and started to sweat like a whore in church so she gave me a silicone boob to squeeze on to alleviate some stress and boy did that help! I now understand why boys love breasts so much 😉 She would apply a little bit and then show me and ask if I wanted more or was pleased with where it was at. Even though I just wanted it to be over with, I’m glad she did this because I was able to construct my perfect lips with her. It was a bit uncomfortable, but definitely nothing close to the pain I was expecting. If you’re ok with needles then it will probably be a breeze for you, I’m just a bit of a needle phobe and got a little tense. When it was all over and I looked in the mirror I was so ecstatic I wanted to jump out of the chair and squeeze her, but I voted against it since I would most likely faint lol. She gave me extensive care instructions and under an hour I was already out the door looking fabulous.
They were pretty swollen for about a week, but I’m so impressed and absolutely in love with my new lips. They look so natural the Dr. I went on a date with (who also does injections and botox) couldn’t believe I had them done!!! I can now wear any lipstick color I want and not even have to over draw my lip liner! I will definitely be back & hopefully try some of the many other services they offer as well 😀 – Skye S.

Dr. Gary Motykie is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He completed his residency in plastic surgery from the University of Texas, followed by a fellowship in Advanced Cosmetic Surgery in 2004.
Apart from providing cosmetic surgery treatments, Dr. Motykie also provides non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments at his Medical Spa for people in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, and nearby communities. Patients have an opportunity to receive treatments from a recognized medspa run under the supervision of a board certified plastic surgeon.

What is a Facial?

A facial is a non-invasive, cosmetic treatment designed to rejuvenate the face and make a person appear vibrant and brighter. The treatment should be performed by qualified and experienced estheticians. A facial’s goal is to nourish, exfoliate and cleanse the skin deeply, and promote clearer, well-hydrated skin. Facials achieve best results over a period of time when they are a part of an integrated skin care program.


The facial procedure should ideally be performed at a medical spa under professional medical supervision. The procedure begins with a consultation during which the esthetician will understand the needs and goals of the person, and seek information about current skin issues, diet, water intake, current medications and herbal supplements, if any. All this information will help the esthetician provide appropriate advice regarding the choice of a particular facial procedure.
Cleansing: The hair is wrapped in a towel or headband, and a detailed cleansing process is performed using cotton pads or facial wipes or sponges.
Skin Analysis: The skin is observed under a brightly lit magnifying lamp to determine the correct skin type and skin conditions such as sun damage, aging, dehydration, acne, blackheads, and whiteheads.
Steam: A thin vapor of warm steam is aimed at each area of the face to relax the muscles and soften any blackheads or whiteheads to be extracted. For sensitive skin types, steam may be avoided.
Exfoliation: A professional medspa, such as Dr. Motykie’s in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, will usually perform the exfoliation process with a chemical or mechanical exfoliant. Mechanical exfoliants create friction to remove dead cells from the skin surface, Chemical exfoliation makes use of mild acids and enzymes to relax the bond between skin cells. Mild chemical peels can be performed along with facial during steaming. However, for stronger chemical peels, a procedure separate from a facial may be performed.
Extractions: This involves removal of whiteheads or blackheads, if necessary. This part of the facial process can be uncomfortable, depending on the pain tolerance of an individual. People with thin or ruddy skin may find it more painful. The procedure must be performed by a skilled esthetician to avoid broken capillaries and discoloration.

Types of Facials

This unique and highly effective facial combines key processes such as exfoliation, cleansing, hydration, extraction and antioxidant preservation at the same time. It is a serum infused microdermabrasion procedure that results in vibrant, glowing skin. The procedure involves no pain or discomfort, and the person can resume normal activity immediately after the treatment. The Hydrafacial™ employs vitamin fortified serums to soften and hydrate the skin.
Custom Facial
This facial is designed in accordance with the specific needs and goals of the person. It prevents, improves, and maintains skin texture and complexion with a customized treatment created to suit a specific skin type. It enhances the skin tone and hydrates thirsty skin.
Gentleman’s Facial
This facial is designed to give special care to extracting beard and in-grown hair. It also calms inflammation when required.
Acne Facial
Facial treatment for acne should be received from a recognized medspa, considering the sensitivity of the skin. It involves deep pore cleansing, along with a focus on extraction. It also includes application of an antiseptic skin clarifying mask to help counter blemishes, acne-inducing bacteria, and inflammation.
Express Facial
People who have little time available for cosmetic facial treatments, may choose this express solution. This is a 30-minute facial treatment that covers cleansing, skin toning, extractions, and a customized mask application. Skin revitalization is achieved in very little time with an express facial.
Dermaplane™ Facial
This is an advanced skin resurfacing technique that involves the use of special surgical blade to delicately scrape off the topmost layer of dead epidermal cells and fine hair. Dermaplaning enables the underlying layer of smooth, clear and undamaged skin to emerge and rejuvenate the facial appearance. This facial is more suited for people who need to improve acne scars or reduce minor wrinkles. It is also helpful in the prevention of dead skin buildup that can magnify the common skin imperfections.
Stem Cell Facial™
A state of the art medical spa, such as Dr. Motykie’s in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, can provide advanced treatments such as stem cell facial, which employs stem cell technology to regenerate and revitalize skin cells. It provides cellular renewal, reduces inflammation, hydrates skin, and restores vibrancy.

Teeth Whitening

Dr. Motykie’s facility for people in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and surrounding communities is equipped to provide state of the art teeth whitening solutions to provide a whiter and brighter smile. The teeth whitening system is designed to provide up to seven shades whiter teeth in under an hour. The procedure is safe for tooth enamel, does not cause pain, and is beneficial for natural teeth as well as veneers, caps, and crowns.
A good candidate for teeth whitening is someone who is above the age of 14, and has fairly healthy teeth. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or those who have severe plaque, tartar, gum disease, dental decay, or enamel demineralization may not be good candidates. Results of teeth whitening may last for up to two years with good dental hygiene practices.


Dermal filler injections are an increasingly popular, non-surgical option to reduce the signs of aging from the face. Facial skin may develop wrinkles and lose elasticity and volume due to depletion of natural collagen. This may occur due to aging, sun damage, environmental exposure, genetic factors, medications or other reasons.
Motykie Medical Spa provides FDA approved cosmetic filler treatments that are based on hyaluronic acid. These include Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Restylane, and Perlane. Hyaluronic acid stimulates collagen beneath the skin and acts as a filler to add volume to the facial skin and reduce wrinkles and lines.


Laser is a minimally invasive treatment for many skin related issues such as skin rejuvenation, unwanted hair removal and spider vein removal. Motykie medspa is equipped to provide advanced laser treatments such as Laser Skin Resurfacing and IPL Photo Rejuvenation, apart from spider vein treatment, and hair removal. Laser cosmetic treatments are based on the principle that darker pigmented tissue will absorb maximum light energy. This allows the targeted tissue points to be destroyed without causing damage to surrounding healthy tissue.


CoolSculpting is an innovative technique that freezes away unwanted fat cells, without causing collateral damage. The treatment approach does not involve invasive or heating techniques, which makes the procedure simpler and more comfortable, and reduces the risk of any side effects.
