About The Healing Curve [VIDEO]

Tag Archives: medical spa beverly hills

Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie, founded his surgery practice as well as Motykie Medical Spa on the principles of compassion and care. The same motivation of Dr. Motykie also extends beyond his day to day practice to support the larger good of the community. Dr. Motykie’s nonprofit initiative, The Healing Curve, was a result of this motivation to make a more meaningful and sustainable contribution to the society.
Dr. Motykie founded The Healing Curve in 2008 as a nonprofit organization to support breast cancer survivors who are left to face the tough reality of breast tissue loss and permanent scars as a result of the mastectomy that save their life. Physical well-being is directly connected to a person’s emotional well-being. Therefore, treating physical deformities apart from the life threatening breast cancer becomes an equally important responsibility.

Inspiration

Dr. Motykie was featured in the popular Dr. 90210 TV series of E! Entertainment. As a part of the episodes of this series, Dr. Motykie performed reconstructive surgeries for breast cancer survivors. The flood of responses that followed the show inspired him to come up with the idea of The Healing Curve. The initiative was launched in 2008 with a mission to fund and support corrective surgeries for women who had sustained physical deformities acquired as an outcome of cancer, trauma, prior unsuccessful procedures and/or birth defects.
Dr. Motykie realized that while the insurance firms provided coverage for the initial construction procedure following breast cancer, but in many cases they would not offer coverage for secondary procedures for survivors. If the survivor could not afford the surgery on their own, they would have to remain feeling incomplete in absence of treatment.
Dr. Motykie says about his experience: “I started The Healing Curve to help those women who have won the battle against breast cancer but have lost their breasts, their femininity and their self-esteem in the process. These women have already been through so much with cancer itself; they deserve the best possible breast reconstruction that plastic surgery can offer.”

Widening the Reach

The Healing Curve was originally established with a sole motive of helping breast cancer survivors to restore their physical aesthetics. However, once the TV show went on air, Dr. Motykie was inundated with letters from viewers. Each letter had a different tale to narrate, but the underlying theme was common: they all suffered from a physical deformity and had no financial means to have it corrected.
Dr. Motykie also came in touch with patients of cosmetic surgery who had been wrongly treated or had poor surgical outcomes. It also included patients who had been through a traumatic accident or suffered from congenital physical deformities. In absence of financial means, these patients were left with disfigurement and permanent scars that could be corrected with a revision surgery. The Healing Curve extended its reach to all such patients, and offered the highest standard of care to those who could not afford it. The initiative is on its way to touch a greater number of lives by raising funds through donations and charity events.

Juvederm Voluma Cheek Volumizer Cost Beverly Hills | Los Angeles Spa

Build My Bod | Get a Quote Now!

Juvederm Voluma is a type of filler used to add volume to your cheeks. It is made with hyaluronic acid, which is found in our bodies. Juvederm Voluma is not only used for adding volume to sunken cheeks but also used to correct hollows under the eyes.
Dr. Gary Motykie offers treatments with Juvederm Voluma cheek volumizer at his med spa. Those living in and around Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Los Angeles can avail of this procedure at his medical spa.

How much does it cost?

The filler cost will be determined by the number of injections required. Number of injections can be determined by the extent of the treatment. How much volume does a patient need or want will decide the cost.
Patients requiring follow-up injections should expect to pay more for the treatment. It all depends on the extent of the damage of the skin and how much treatment a patient wants to undergo. The results of these procedures last from 12 months to 18 months. If you need to repeat the injections, this will affect the cost in the long-term.

Other factors influencing cost of Juvederm Voluma cheek volumizer procedure

  • Experience and expertise of the plastic surgeon definitely adds to the cost of a procedure. The more experienced a doctor, the safer a patient will feel under their care. Also, more knowledge and practice translates to more expenses for the patients.
  • Experience of the support staff also adds to the cost.
  • The location of the treatment facility is one major factor influencing the cost of a cosmetic procedure. The cost of living is different in different geographic locations depending upon many thing such as local economy and way of living.
  • The type of the treatment facility is another factor to consider for determining the cost of Juvederm fillers. The type of rooms, the type of services offered to the patients, the quality of food available all these add to the cost of the treatment facility. The fancier a treatment center, the more chances of its being costlier.

Cost comparison with other surgeries

Plastic surgery is more expensive than cosmetic procedures that use fillers and injections to correct a problem. Surgeries require more hours to perform so ther are more costly than Juvederm. The surgeon’s fee and the cost of anesthesia, operating room or any medical test that the patient might be required to take, all add to the cost of a surgical procedure.
Patients need more time to recover after a surgery. The extended hospital stay also adds the surgery cost. Plastic surgeries and cosmetic procedures for aesthetic purposes are not covered by insurance making these treatments costlier on the pocket. In comparison, cost of Juvederm Voluma Cheek Volumizer procedures are less expensive. The filler is just injected and within an hour you are good to go.

External Beauty Self-esteem | Plastic Surgery Los Angeles Beverly HillsBoard certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie, is a believer in the power of inner beauty, and says that outer beauty can only complement in the inner beauty of an individual. Dr. Motykie recommends that a cosmetic surgeon’s goal must be to bring out the best in a patient in terms of their self-esteem and natural happiness about their own body. This goal may not necessarily involve a surgical procedure in every case.

Everywhere You Look

Everywhere you look, you will find yourself surrounded by commercial images of stunningly beautiful women and handsome men who appear to have it all. More often than not, these images can trigger wishful thinking even in the most conservative of human beings – because at the end of the day, everyone is only human. The social pressure to look beautiful has only grown with the passage of time.
As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Motykie recognizes the importance of cosmetic procedures to resolve the inner conflicts of an individual when it comes to physical beauty. However, he approaches the issue with spectacular care and empathy, and first ensures whether a surgical procedure is indeed in the patient’s best interests and is the best available solution to serve their personal goals and aspirations.

External Beauty and Inner Self-esteem

The human mind has a great natural sense of aesthetics, balance, and proportion. This can be seen in every manmade creation from paintings to sculptures to architectural marvels to modern automobiles and gadgets. In that sense, there is no way to escape from the reality that human beings love beautiful things. The legendary poet, John Keats had said: “A thing of beauty is a joy forever.” There is a ring of pure truth in these words.
The challenge, however, is that external beauty is only one of the elements that go into building a strong self-esteem of an individual. In other words, plastic surgery is not the cure-all for a low self-esteem. Dr. Motykie adopts an integrated approach to plastic surgery that combines overall health and happiness of the mind and spirit with the physical beauty of the body. Wherever he believes that the patient may be better served by a non-surgical approach, he will actually divert the patient towards different approaches such as diet, exercise, and even psychological health support.

Choosing the Surgical Option

With the kind of amazing advancements and innovations that have taken place in the field of cosmetic surgery, Dr. Motykie knows that for many patients, surgical options may be the shortest and surest path available to boost their self-esteem. Aesthetic challenges such as unbalanced facial features, sagging skin, small or asymmetric breasts, and physical deformities can become a source of constant unhappiness.
Particularly in cases where the condition cannot be resolved with diet and exercise alone, Dr. Motykie may recommend a suitable, safe, and conservative surgical approach to achieve most satisfying outcomes for his patients. In any case, even with surgery, Dr. Motykie encourages the patient to adopt a combined approach involving a healthy and balanced diet, an active and positive lifestyle and regular exercise. Wherever appropriate, he will even combine non-surgical aesthetic solutions, dietary changes, and a scientific exercise regimen along with surgical treatment for long lasting results.

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie, provides state of the art non-surgical treatments for women and men. The medspa is equipped with advanced technologies such as the Alma HarmonyXL AFT laser system. This technology is designed to achieve effective aesthetic outcomes without posing any risk or causing any significant discomfort or pain to the patient. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding areas can receive this laser treatment at the Motykie Medical Spa.
Aesthetic Skin Treatments with Alma HarmonyXL AFT Laser

Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT)

AFT is the next generation of intense pulsed light. It takes previously unused short wavelength light and transforms it into a part of the usable spectrum through a special filtering system. In simpler words, this means that the emission and targeted penetration of the lasers is enhanced and safer and more effective results can be achieved.
AFT also delivers Equally Distributed Fluence (EDF). This means that every single pulse has uniform energy density across the entire output area. The aesthetic outcomes are more consistent and smoother looking. The “fluence” ensures that the results can be repeated with multiple treatments, and the safety quotient remains remarkably high. Skin damage is minimal, discomfort is much reduced, and overall efficiency of results is very high.

Laser Treatment for Vascular and Pigmented Lesions

HarmonyXL laser technology allows for non-surgical, quick and effective treatment for vascular and pigmented lesions. Almost every adult has one or more pigmented lesion. These may be caused due to aging, sun exposure or other factors. In some cases, the lesions may be present by birth. These lesions are essentially spots on the skin where the concentration of melanin is high.
For benign pigmented lesions that may cause cosmetic concern to many people, the HarmonyXL technology provides an effective, non-surgical solution. Dr. Motykie’s medspa is equipped with this technology, and patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive this treatment at the facility.
The treatment provider will expose the pigmented lesion to short pulses of light, with an aim to raise the temperature in the melanin concentration. With a controlled application of laser heat, the cells carrying the melanin will be shattered. The body will gradually replace these unwanted cells with new, healthy cells generated by the surrounded healthy tissue. The AFT technology can be used to treat pigmented lesions on any skin type because of its unique wavelength and pulse width capabilities.

Key Advantages

Alma’s HarmonyXL AFT laser technology offers several benefits over other typical non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments.

  • The results with this treatment are highly effective for reduction of pigmented lesions.
  • The treatment is completely non-surgical and safe.
  • Applicable for all skin types.
  • No anesthesia and not even any topical or numbing agents are required.
  • The treatment time is less than 30 minutes, which can easily fit into the schedule of busy people.
  • No downtime is involved, and the patient is ready to resume their regular activities immediately.

Motykie Medical Spa is a premier facility providing this innovative and proven treatment for superficial vascular and pigmented skin irregularities.

Laser Hair Removal Los Angeles | Beverly Hills Medical Spa | Med SpaLaser hair removal treatment is widely considered to be the most effective and long lasting solution for unwanted hair. People who are dissatisfied or unhappy with traditional treatments such as waxing, tweezing, or shaving may choose laser hair removal with a reputed medspa.
One of the leading facilities for this treatment is Motykie Medical Spa, which is equipped with advanced laser technologies to provide laser hair removal in a safe and effective manner. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations may receive laser hair removal and other non-surgical aesthetic treatments at the facility.

Long Lasting Results

Many people are unhappy with the growth of unwanted hair in various parts of the body, including the face, arms, legs, back, and when they wear a bikini. The growth of hair in these areas may occur due to genetic reasons, fluctuation of hormone levels, certain types of drugs, or other causes. Temporary relief can be obtained through the use of conventional solutions such as waxing, tweezing, or shaving.
However, these treatments can cause pain and discomfort, and produce less effective and short-term results only. Laser hair removal treatment from a reputed medspa is the proven and long lasting solution for the problem of unwanted hair. Laser treatment does not need to be repeated often like other treatments, and the patient can enjoy excellent aesthetic results for a long time.

Who is a Terrific Candidate?

A standout and/or ideal candidate for laser based hair removal treatment is someone with darker hair and lighter complexion of the skin. The laser beam light will get absorbed by the dark pigmentation in the hair, causing its disintegration from the root. The focus of the laser is very precise, which protects the surrounding healthy tissue against potential damage.
Laser experts at the Motykie Medical Spa will evaluate the suitability of a candidate before recommending laser hair removal treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other locations.

Procedure

The laser hair removal expert will deliver the sharp beam of intense laser light to the targeted hair using a laser tip, which is placed directly over the targeted area. The laser energy penetrates through the top layers of the skin and gets absorbed by the hair follicle pigment. This heat energy weakens the unwanted hair from its root. The hair comes off from the skin gradually on its own.
The procedure is almost entirely painless, but some experts will use a local anesthetic gel or cream for better patient comfort. Best results with laser hair removal can be achieved with about three to six treatment sessions. The number of treatments needed by an individual will depend on factors such as treatment area, hair type, density, color, and pattern of growth.

Recovery

Laser hair removal does not involve any downtime, and the patient is ready to resume their regular activities immediately. The risk of side effects is nearly non-existent with laser treatment as long as it is performed by a certified expert. The patient should avoid direct exposure to sunlight for several weeks after the treatment.

botox before and after picturesBotox is a temporary anti-aging injectable treatment to reduce the wrinkles and lines on the face. The effects of Botox may last for about four to six months, depending on various factors. The striking aspect about Botox is that the treatment can be repeated under a doctor’s guidance to prolong the benefits. Motykie Medical Spa is a certified Botox provider for patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding areas. See Botox Before and After Photos

Variations in Effectiveness

The results with Botox treatment can vary from patient to another even at the same medspa. An experienced Botox provider will advise patients at the outset that the treatment may remain effective for about four to six months. With clear information, the patient is in a better position to make an appropriate choice of treatment.
The results may last for a relatively lesser duration for patients with deeper frown lines. These patients tend to have stronger muscles, which results in the motion of the muscle returning back to normal faster than for those who have less bulky muscles in the forehead.

Longer Effects with Repeat Treatments

As the muscle action returns back to normal in a gradual manner over a period of four to six months, the facial wrinkles and lines will appear again. This can be addressed with repeat treatments under the supervision of a Botox expert at a reputed medical spa. With the passage of time, the appearance of wrinkles and lines tends to become less severe in many cases with repeat Botox treatments. This happens because the muscles are being repeatedly trained to relax.
The return of the muscle movement can be noticed prior to the deepening of the furrows caused by the contraction movements. That is the most appropriate time to go back to the medspa for a repeat treatment of Botox. This ensures that the lines or furrows are treated before they worsen.
