Cosmetic treatments for changing and enhancing your appearance are a great way to boost your confidence while providing long-lasting results. However, you might be hesitant about surgical procedures due to the long recovery periods, possible side effects, and long-term commitment to the results. If so, you may want to consider non-surgical procedures in Encino as a stepping stone to the more comprehensive procedures that we offer at AESTHETICA LA.
Our broad spectrum of treatments offers non-invasive methods for improving the skin and contours of both your face and body. Although many procedures require multiple treatments to get the most effective results, patients are satisfied when they see the ultimate outcome and will often come back to us asking what further enhancements are possible. Dr. Yaghoubian and her team of experienced plastic surgeons and specialists are available to help you determine the best way of rejuvenating your skin.
Undergoing surgery for removing excess body fat and drooping skin could result in scars and take a while to fully heal. If a patient thinks only a small amount of work is needed, then non-surgical procedures in Encino could enhance the contours with non-invasive methods, without the need to alter their lifestyle for several weeks.
As an alternative to surgical skin removal that leaves visible scars, non-surgical skin tightening treatments like J-Plasma use thermal energy to heat the underlying skin tissue to produce collagen, which is essential for maintaining the skin’s health and structure. As collagen and elastin increase in the months after treatment, the skin tightens over the muscle contours naturally. When used to treat the face and neck, results are similar to a surgical facelift or neck lift procedure. However, non-surgical approaches are better-suited for treating minimal to moderate aging signs and skin laxity.
A non-invasive fat reduction procedure like Kybella injections could reduce small to moderate amounts of excess fat in the chin area without incisions and scars. This treatment contains a substance similar to the naturally-occurring acid that the body uses to break down fat cells. Afterward, the body filters out the fat cells over time, while the increase in collagen causes the skin to tighten.
In addition to treatments for contouring enhancements, non-surgical treatments in Encino include several methods to rejuvenate the skin on the face, as well as elsewhere on the body.
Reducing the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, and acne scarring is possible with laser skin resurfacing, microneedling, and microdermabrasion treatments. Laser resurfacing treatments – such as IPL laser – use energy to vaporize dead or damaged cells from the skin’s superficial layers in order to reduce blemishes and acne. Likewise, microdermabrasion removes damaged skin cells but uses a specialized tool that exfoliates the skin.
Microneedling relies on the body’s natural healing process to regenerate new skin cells in place of damaged ones. The treatment creates micro-injuries with tiny needles in the skin to stimulate the process while also increasing collagen production for stronger, healthier skin. We also provide Morpheus8, which combines microneedling with radiofrequency to go even deeper into the skin.
Routine treatment choices for wrinkle reduction include Botox and dermal filler injections, sometimes used in combination. Specifically, dermal filler injections restore volume underneath the skin in areas where declining tissue volume cause wrinkles. Comparatively, Botox reduces wrinkles that appear during repetitive facial movements by minimizing the muscles’ ability to move.
Additional skin rejuvenating treatments include facials and chemical peels, which exfoliate, clarify, and brighten the skin. Specifically, chemical peels utilize a mixture of acids to remove dead and damaged skin resulting in wrinkles, scarring, blemishes, and other cosmetic concerns. Facials are less intensive and typically involve cleansing the skin before applying high-quality skincare products. These treatments are perfect for someone who is looking for a relaxing MedSpa-like atmosphere.
Non-surgical procedures in Encino are an excellent alternative to surgery if you want to change your appearance without scars, significant side effects, and a lengthy recovery period. Further, several treatments are available for addressing various skin and contour concerns. Many treatment sessions can be done in under an hour, so reach out to our qualified team at AESTHETICA LA and let us know your concerns so that we can make a customized and unique treatment plan that satisfies your needs.
