Am I a Candidate for FaceTite

Saggy cheeks due to loss of facial volume age the face, but there are several ways to restore youthful fullness without surgery.Have you ever wondered what is the best non-surgical method to restore facial volume?  The answer is injectable fillers. Treatment with dermal fillers is widely considered to be the most effective way to replenish volume and restore a fresher, younger appearance.

Why your face loses volume
Facial volume loss is often characterized by conditions such as the thinning of the face, wrinkles, droopy skin, sunken cheeks, and deep lines. These changes are mostly due to declining collagen levels. Hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm Voluma XC are an excellent way to restore collagen levels.

Juvederm Voluma XC for mid-face volume loss
Juvederm Voluma XC is a deep volumizing filler for the mid-face region. It is a unique formulation, and is the only filler approved by the FDA for the correction of volume loss in the cheeks. It can also be used fill out nasolabial folds.

Juvederm Voluma consists of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that is found in the skin. It helps to stimulate collagen production, and as more collagen is produced, the cheeks get plumper, giving your face a natural lift. The effects of Juvederm can last up to 18 months.

Other injectable filler products used to replenish volume loss in other parts of the face include botox, juvederm, Sculptra, and Dysport. To get the best results, you need to select a medical practitioner who is highly experienced in using these fillers.

How soon can I return to normal activities after lipo?

As more people look for ways to achieve the ‘perfect body,’ liposuction for body contouring remains as popular as ever. Recovery is an important concern for patients that do the procedure, so they often ask their physician, – “How soon can I return to normal activities after lipo?” While there are some general guidelines regarding recovery after lipo, patients are always advised to follow the advice of their plastic surgeon regarding post-op care.

Resuming normal activities after Lipo
The speed at which you can return to normal activities after lipo depends a lot on the type of liposuction performed. With traditional lipo, recovery can take anywhere from 3-7 days. There is usually some swelling, soreness, and bruising, and return to normal activities can take up to 3 weeks.

However, with the emergence of modern liposuction techniques like SmartLipo, recovery time is much less. SmartLipo is a revolutionary lipo laser treatment that melts away fat. This method of fat removal is less traumatic than traditional lipo, and consequently the downtime is also less.

The recovery period from SmartLipo varies, as it is influenced by the amount of fat that is removed. In instances where there is only a small area being treated, patients may need only one day for recovery. However for larger areas, patients may need about 5 days of rest.Light activities can be resumed thereafter.

After SmartLipo, patients are given pain medications to deal with any discomfort, and they are also asked to wear compression garments. Compression garments help to minimize swelling, and also improve lipo results.

SmartLipo is available at Awaken Aesthetics, Torrance, California. Call 310-791-2233 today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Alex Liu, or Dr. Mike Sheu. During consultation, Drs. Liu and Sheu will let you know how soon you can return to normal activities after lipo.

Remove Stubborn Fat with Liposuction

Do you have annoying love handles and stubborn fat that won’t seem to budge? Have you tried spot reducing without success? You’re not alone, there are many people out there also trying hard to get rid of those dreaded love handles, but sometimes you need a little help from body sculpting treatments like Exilis. But how do Exilis treatments actually help reduce the fat?

What is Exilis?
Exilis is a body shaping solution that uses dual radiofrequency (RF) technology to reshape fat deposits, and tighten the skin. Exilis is FDA approved, and is safe enough for use on all skin types

How does Exilis work?
The medical practitioner guides the device over the target areas of fat. Patients feel a warming sensation, as the thermal heat delivered by the device heats up the fat cells in the lower level of skin. This action makes the cells release the fat deposits, which are eventually passed from the body. Exilis also promotes collagen production, making the skin tighter and firmer.

There is no downtime after an Exilis treatment, so patients can resume normal activities immediately. However, patients will notice a slight redness in the treated areas, which generally clears in 1 to 2 hours.
