10 Cosmetic Surgery Trends We Predict for 2021

2020 is finally behind us. We thought it would never end.

Now, with the pandemic still raging, a New Year has passed. The good news is that, on account of COVID-19, cosmetic surgeons are practicing more safety measures than ever.

That’s good for your New Year’s resolutions of changing that one thing about yourself you dislike.

Your saggy chin, flabby belly, or jiggly thighs could all be a thing of the past. You know which part(s) we’re talking about.

You’ve always wanted to change for the better aesthetically and now’s your chance.

This is the best time to have an aesthetic procedure.

Americans spent $16.5 billion on cosmetic procedures in 2018, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and numbers only continue to rise.

With modern innovations and technological improvements in the medical industry, procedures are now safer than ever. And affordable, due to the availability of aesthetic surgery financing.

Here are cosmetic procedures we predict will be the most popular in 2021.

What is Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery also referred to as aesthetic surgery, is an elective operation that aims to improve your appearance. There are cosmetic procedures for nearly every part of your body, including your forehead, eyelids, chin, neck, arms, chest, abdomen, butt, legs, calves, and ankles. There are also non-surgical options that can smooth and erase fine lines and wrinkles and enhance areas such as your lips.

The best cosmetic surgeons offer an entire menu of surgical and non-surgical treatments so that you can address your insecurities.

1- Traditional Liposuction

Traditional liposuction is one of popular cosmetic procedures

Traditional liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery for both men and women. Patients appreciate that lipo can be used on a variety of areas on the body.

The most common areas where patients seek to have lipo performed include the abdomen, hips, sides, lower back, upper thighs, and upper arms.

While liposuction should never be used as a weight loss tool, the procedure can remove large pockets of stubborn fat from your body. You would be considered an ideal candidate for lipo if you have tried to lose weight to no avail with diet and exercise. Lipo can remove the fat, making the area slimmer.

During liposuction, general anesthesia is used before a tumescent liquid is injected into the treatment area. The substances in this liquid break up the fat, making it easier to extract. Small incisions are made, allowing your doctor to insert a cannula, or thin metal tube, to extract the fat from your body.

Liposuction can slim down your appearance and give you a leaner silhouette.

There were more than 250,000 liposuction procedures performed in 2018 and we predict the procedure will become even more popular in 2021.

2- VASER Liposuction

 

VASER Hi-Definition liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that also aims to remove stubborn fat from your body. The main difference between traditional lipo and VASER lipo is the body sculpting results. VASER uses ultrasound energy to break up the bonds that keep fat connected to the surrounding tissues. Once the fat is emulsified, it is removed using a liposuction cannula. VASER is best for removing the deep, superficial fat cells that hide your body’s musculature.

Patients of VASER can see faster results from exercise because they don’t have that pesky layer of fat covering all their hard work. The procedure can be used nearly all over, resulting in a toned and “ripped” appearance.

As more people learn about this cutting-edge HD lipo technique, we expect more patients to ask for a sculpted physique using VASER.

3- Injectables and Fillers

Injectables and Fillers

As we get older, our faces begin to develop imperfections like wrinkles, sunspots, and fine lines. You may experience bags under your eyes, which makes you appear eternally exhausted. Aesthetic injectables and fillers can make Father Time stop in his tracks. In some cases, fillers can even enhance what nature gave you.

Aesthetic injectables go by many brand names such as Botox, Xeomin and Dysport, to name a few. These injectable neurotoxins weaken and paralyze specific muscles at the treatment site. By diminishing the muscle action in that area, your cosmetic surgeon can improve small wrinkles and folds, making you look younger and more refreshed.

Fillers are used to fill-in deficiencies or voids in the skin. Age can also produce a sunken effect as the muscles in our face weaken and atrophy. Fillers can support these areas, making your skin look firmer and younger.

Thick fillers are used for deeper folds and creases and to provide lift to the affected area. Thinner filler products are used for finer lines and creases but don’t offer much support.

Both procedures will gain in popularity as people continually want to turn back time and add improvement to their appearances on Zoom and in the real world.

4- Cosmetic Procedures Combinations

 

With cosmetic surgeons able to perform so many aesthetically enhancing techniques, it makes sense that patients would want to bulk treatments together when they can. We expect more patients will choose this route, which reduces the number of times they are on the surgeon’s table. Instead of having breast implants this week and a butt augmentation a year from now, you can have both treatments performed in unison as part of a mommy makeover procedure, for example.

Combining procedures is a convenient and affordable approach to improving your body. Not all procedures can be performed in conjunction with one another. Ask your cosmetic surgeon for details to begin envisioning the possibilities.

5- Tummy Tuck

A flatter tummy can be yours by opting for a tummy tuck, which is also known as abdominoplasty. This popular cosmetic treatment can help you achieve your fitness goals once and for all. Like lipo, you should make every attempt to achieve your ideal shape with diet and exercise. When those fail to work, a tummy tuck can give you the enviously flat belly you’ve always wanted.

During a tummy tuck, your cosmetic surgeon will remove the excess skin and fat that exists on your abdomen. Your surgeon can also repair separated or weakened muscle tissue, which further results in a slimmer and more defined body shape.

Tummy tucks have always been popular and there’s no reason to believe that the trend will stop in 2021 and beyond.

6- Breast Augmentations

Breast augmentation - Cosmetic Procedures

Breast augmentation, which is also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, is surgery that aims to increase your breast size. It involves the placement of breast implants under breast tissue or the muscles in your chest.

In the past, women opting for breast implants would often choose the biggest and most voluminous implants they could get. The bigger the better. Those days are long gone.

We predict that not only will breast augmentations (and breast lifts and reductions) still be popular in 2021, but the focus will be on smaller, more natural implants.

7- Butt Augmentations

Just like breast implants, more patients will be ordering butt augmentations like the Brazilian Butt Lift. With the BBL, fat is extracted from another area of your body, such as your flanks, before it is injected into your buttocks to give it more shape and volume.

Like breast implants, we predict patients won’t be going as large as they can go, but will want buttocks that are perkier, and more natural in appearance.

8- Scarless Body Lifts (Renuvion Skin Tightening)

Scarless Body Lifts (Renuvion Skin Tightening)

Have you heard of the scarless arm lift? What about the scarless tummy tuck or the scarless leg lift?

These procedures are now more popular than ever before. Here’s how they work.

Using a technology known as Renuvion (J-Plasma), your cosmetic surgeon can tighten and repair skin at the treatment area with immediate and long-lasting results.

J-Plasma can treat droopy or saggy skin and can be used on most body parts requiring incisions, including sensitive areas like the neck and face.

“But wait,” you might say to yourself. “If there are incisions, how are there no scars afterward?”

The term “scarless” implies that the scars are nearly invisible once healed. For one, your cosmetic surgeon strategically places the scars within the natural folds of your body. These incisions, once healed, will hardly be noticeable.

Reunion can be used from nearly head to toe and we expect more people to opt for this procedure to tighten and rejuvenate their skin.

9- Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia Surgery

Male breast growth is a problem that can affect males of nearly any age. Young boys can begin forming male breast tissue in puberty and some older men experience “man boobs” when their testosterone starts to decline and they lose muscle mass. Gynecomastia surgery can restore a man’s chest to a more masculine appearance. The procedure has also been shown to have a drastic effect on the man’s self-esteem.

For men who have trouble removing their shirts at the beach or in the locker room, gynecomastia surgery could be the life enhancer they’ve been waiting for. Now that more men are discovering that treatment is possible, we expect to see the number of gynecomastia patients to grow even higher in the future.

10- Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve

Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve

You may not think of bariatric (weight loss) surgery as a cosmetic procedure. But for some, a surgery like the gastric sleeve can be of a cosmetic nature.

People suffering from obesity can face constant rejection and it doesn’t help that the media doesn’t paint obese people in a particularly good light.

We should mention that being obese raises your health risks and can result in early death.

Whether you want to slim down for health reasons or to look your best, weight loss surgeries like the sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve) can help you achieve your health and body shape goals.

The laparoscopic gastric sleeve is minimally invasive and performed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will use laparoscopic tools to remove 80% of your stomach, which leaves behind a small pouch or “sleeve”. Your newly configured stomach forces you to eat smaller portions, thereby restricting the nutrients your body can consume. Gastric sleeve surgery also affects the hormone ghrelin, which regulates hunger and fullness. You won’t have as many cravings for bad foods and you will feel fuller while eating, helping you lose weight quickly.

Gastric sleeve patients end up losing 50%, 60% or more of their excess weight in the first two years. The bulk of the weight loss happens within the first year, with the weight loss tapering off after year two.

Cosmetic Surgery & Anesthesia – Will you Be Asleep or Wide Awake During Your Procedure?

Cosmetic surgery can boost your appearance and make you look years younger.

A skilled cosmetic surgeon can give you better contours and cause your self-esteem to surge.

While cosmetic procedures only seem to be growing in popularity, it’s the surgery part that fills many patients with dread.

Most specifically, nervous patients often want to learn more about anesthesia and how it works.

These patients invariably ask the same question, albeit in different ways. “Will I be awake or asleep during my surgery?”

Here are a few points to consider about anesthesia, and how it may be used during your cosmetic procedure.

What Are the Different Kinds of Anesthesia?

Anesthesia can help to prevent feelings of discomfort during surgery. Thanks to advances in medical technology, anesthesia is entirely safe to administer. The medication is given to you during surgery under the supervision of a certified anesthesia provider.

Deciding on which type of anesthesia to opt for depends on the procedure being performed. Believe it or not, some patients prefer being awake during cosmetic surgery. Others want nothing more than to be asleep.

There are different types of anesthesia.

Local Anesthesia

Local Anesthesia

If you have ever received a shot by your dentist to numb your mouth before the drilling began, that is a good example of a local anesthetic being administered. You will be awake and alert following the injection of the medicine. You may feel some pressure at the treatment area, but you will not feel pain.

General Anesthesia

When you think of going to sleep during surgery, you are thinking of general anesthesia. The medication makes you go completely unconscious. You won’t feel any discomfort, nor will you recall anything about your surgery. The certified anesthesia provider gives you the medicine by way of IV. In some cases, instead of intravenously administering the drug, the provider will use a mask for inhalation.

Once you are unconscious, the provider will continue to monitor your vital signs, which include your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing patterns.

Why Do Some Surgeons Put You to Sleep?

Some Surgeons Put You to Sleep

Almost all surgeons will choose to put a patient to sleep during major surgeries. Surgeries like breast augmentations, mommy makeovers, and tummy tucks involve cutting and manipulating tissues under the skin. You will want to be asleep during those procedures. Your doctor would prefer that, too, for safety’s sake. You don’t want to be moving around while your doctor is in the middle of a cut, do you?

Many doctors perform surgeries such as breast augmentation and liposuction using a combination of IV sedation and local anesthetic. Others only use local anesthetic for various reasons.

For example, the FDA has said that breast augmentation is safe to undergo with only local anesthesia. So, one surgeon began performing breast augmentations that way. The technique became so popular that the doctor started getting numerous requests from women wanting to be awake during their procedures. This is one example of a major cosmetic procedure that you can be awake for (if you wish).

There are reasons for avoiding general anesthesia. Some patients have a bad reaction to general anesthesia. You should also know that being rendered unconscious during surgery can increase recovery times.

If you want to avoid general anesthesia, you would do better to opt for minimally invasive procedures. These include skin-tightening Renuvion, HD-Lipo for abdominal etching, and many others.

The more body parts that are worked on during a session, the more likely general anesthesia will be used.

Why Would Your Doctor Keep You Awake?

Stethoscope

Some procedures are so mild they do not require you to be asleep. Botox injections, laser skin resurfacing, and non-surgical body contouring can be performed with your eyes open and your mind very much awake.

Your doctor may recommend that you remain awake during your cosmetic procedure if you tend to react poorly to general anesthesia. During any procedure, your health becomes top priority. Your doctor would rather perform the surgery with you awake than put you under, if it meant risking your health.

General anesthesia will also be avoided if you suffer from sleep apnea, kidney problems, heart disease, or diabetes.

Being Awake During Surgery is Safe & Popular

The prospect of being awake during surgery may invoke horrific images of you lying on a metal table, completely conscious. Surgical instruments are buzzing away. Meanwhile, you are too frozen to move. You can’t cry out to tell the surgical staff that you’re awake and that you can feel everything!

Anesthetic providers (anesthesiologists) are tasked with ensuring you stay asleep during your procedure. You will not wake up, no matter what, once the medication has been administered.

For those surgeries where you intend to be awake, you will find them to be a breeze. A local anesthetic or no anesthetic will be used, which means you should feel little discomfort throughout the procedure. After all, looking your best does not have to hurt. Anesthetic makes that possible.

Conclusion

General anesthesia is safe when administered in a hospital setting by certified anesthesia providers. However, the choice is up to you and your doctor, whether you will be awake or asleep during your procedure. Discuss any questions you might have about cosmetic surgery and anesthesia with your doctor. The best time to do so is during your initial consultation.

Considering Cosmetic or Plastic Surgery?

You owe it to yourself to schedule that tummy tuck, mommy makeover, or breast augmentation. Ask about anesthesia and how they use it during your procedure of choice. Call Moein Surgical Arts in Los Angeles to schedule a virtual consultation (310) 694-4486.

Top Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures to Bring Out Your Best Look This Season

Are you unhappy with the visible signs of aging, but unsure what to do about it? Don’t let your spirit fall with the leaves this season! There are many minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to help you. And there are even non-invasive procedures available to help combat and resolve a number of issues that may concern you.

According to the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 16,349,031 minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in 2019. They included submental fullness under the chin to stubborn and unwanted cellulite. Below is a detailed list of the top minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to help you look and feel your best. They are all with little to no downtime!

Getting Rid of a Double Chin Without Surgery

We’ve all been there. Reminiscing as we stare at old photos, wishing we’d stuck our chin up and out to relieve the submental fat that’s settled beneath our face. In a study on the impact of submental fat (double chin) on one’s appearance and self-confidence, Allergan found that nearly half of people find it bothering. 55% of women and 40% of men are affected by this area. Therefore, there’s no wonder why effective treatments have grown in popularity.

Kybella for Double Chin Treatment

Chin Treatment - Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedure

Kybella is an FDA approved, injectable treatment that can be administered over several sessions to help you achieve the chiseled and toned face you desire. Each treatment can be completed in 20 to 30 minutes and will lead to permanent results. Kybella can also dissolve the submental fullness beneath your chin. It will be producing these permanent results within 4-6 weeks after your final treatment.

With this minimally invasive, low-cost procedure, you can have that chiseled jawline you’re used to seeing in the movies. But maybe, you’re not worried about your chin. Given the number of filters and Facetune used so regularly these days, it’s easy to wish your skin had that same supple, natural glow. Luckily, there’s a fix for that as well.

Minimally Invasive Skin Treatments

From age spots to wrinkles, there are many reasons men and women are insecure about their skin. While a full facelift (Rhytidectomy) may have been typical in the past, there are many treatments now that allow for younger-looking skin, without having to plan for surgery.

A popular treatment is one that involves “resurfacing” of the skin. The doctors will apply different techniques to shed the top layer of epidermis on your face, making way for fresh, new skin to come to the surface. While this sounds intense, there are several procedures today that are effective and require little downtime.

Renuvion for Younger Looking Skin

Renuvion for Younger Looking Skin

Renuvion is a non-surgical procedure geared towards rejuvenating the skin on your face, neck, and body by tightening and resurfacing the skin. This resurfacing will fade the appearance of typical insecurities such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven pigmentation, and Melasma. This procedure works similarly to lasering, where the doctors apply plasma energy to the skin to produce the desired results.

In just a single afternoon treatment you can be on your way to firmer, younger-looking skin. We know that facial sagging and dark spots can be a troublesome issue, especially after summer sun exposure. Renuvion is a treatment that can help you resolve a wide array of bothersome skin issues.

A major bonus to Renuvion is that you only need a single treatment to achieve results. Typical recovery time averages from 2-3 weeks after the procedure. You may experience some irritation and swelling, followed by steadily improving results over several months after the initial treatment.

Co2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Unlike Renuvion, which uses sound energy, Co2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing uses an ablative laser to resurface small areas of the skin. While results from this procedure are achieved over the course of multiple quick sessions, downtime is significantly less than Renuvion. You may experience mild sunburn symptoms for about three days, but that’s about it.

This minimally-invasive procedure uses a Carbon Dioxide laser to achieve resurfacing results designed to fade dark spots, scars, and fine lines and wrinkles. This specific laser is the most powerful in its class. We can use it to achieve youthful skin on the face, neck, and hands. The Co2 laser is also efficient in removing sunspots and precancerous tumors often found on the skin.

Skin tightening, resurfacing, and submental fat removal are effective. They are sought-after facial treatments, but some people may feel they need more than these treatments have to offer. The advanced world of cosmetic procedures has given us a non-surgical facelift that will effectively resolve a number of major skin issues.

La Silhouette Instalift Procedure

La Silhouette Instalift Procedure

It is now possible to achieve the contoured and firm look of a surgical facelift, without major surgery. La Silhouette Instalift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to achieve younger-looking skin by targeting signs of aging such as deep wrinkles, loss of collagen and fullness, and sagging skin around the eyes, cheeks, and neck.

This procedure requires no incisions, leaves no scarring, and has no downtime. Doctors can perform this quick and effective skin treatment in under an hour in their office. You’ll be home that very day, only to return a few times per year to maintain your results with injectables. The beauty of this beauty treatment lies in the ability to achieve a newly contoured face and youthful appearance in one session, with little effect on your busy schedule.

Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures for the Body

While signs of facial aging are a stressor for men and women alike, stubborn body issues are on the forefront of people’s minds as well. From cellulite to age spots, your body is not immune to the signs of aging. These minimally invasive cosmetic procedures can have you feeling more confident in your body’s appearance. It will lead to increased serotonin for a variety of reasons.

Velashape for Cellulite Reduction

This non-invasive procedure can achieve targeted results in effectively removing the stubborn dimples that never seem to go away, even with exercise. Velashape will feel similar to a massage. It similarly uses a vacuum treatment. It also uses massage rollers to prepare the skin for the light energy used to target the cellulite.

The performance time for Velashape is under an hour with no downtime and often immediate results. While you may need a series of treatments depending on your specific circumstance, results will gradually improve over time with cellulite being severely diminished or eliminated over the course of three months.

Velashape for Body Contouring

Velashape for Body Contouring

Who doesn’t want an improved body shape, without the struggle of targeted and oftentimes inefficient exercises? Velashape for body contouring is a non-invasive procedure that uses the same technology and similar processes as other cellulite reduction procedures. With Velashape body contouring, you can also reduce fullness in areas of your body that have been stubborn in the past.

Similar to the cellulite reduction procedure, Velashape body contouring requires no downtime. Therefore, doctors can perform it in one afternoon with results achieved after six treatments. Like many body-altering procedures, we can enhance and maintain the results with appropriate diet and exercise.

How Renuvion Rejuvenates Your Skin Compared to Laser Treatments

Aging will one day visit us all.

When that happens, your age will begin to show on your face, and particularly

on your neck. Your arms and thighs may begin to sag, and your belly may become mushier than you would like.

Innovations in cosmetic surgery have now made it possible to turn back the years with cutting-edge skin rejuvenation. One technology that is proving popular with aesthetic surgery patients everywhere is Renuvion. Otherwise known as J-Plasma, this new skin-tightening technology can make you look years younger while giving your face any other treatment areas a youthful glow.

In years past, laser cosmetic surgery was the technology everyone hailed as the latest skin-rejuvenating wonder. So, let us compare the two.

The following pits Renuvion against lasers to determine which one is most successful and cost-effective at giving you age-defying skin.

What is Renuvion or J-Plasma?

J-Plasma is an amazing technology straight out of a sci-fi movie. Scientists figured out that if you take radiofrequency energy and pass through it a concentrated stream of helium energy, a helium plasma energy results. Often described as the fourth state of matter (following liquid, solid, and gas), the helium plasma emitted by the hand-held Renuvion device heats-up your skin and the underlying tissue.

As the stream of J-Plasma is emitted to the treatment area by your cosmetic surgeon, the tissue becomes heated under the energy stream, yet the surrounding tissues are left undisturbed. This precision of the targeted area allows your surgeon to get to smaller, hard-to-reach areas like the regions around the eyes, and those around the cheeks and jowls.

As the skin heats up, a tightening effect takes place, which erases fine lines and wrinkles, and gives your favorite features a taut appearance. J-Plasma simultaneously exfoliates, removes imperfections, and stimulates new skin growth. When the Renuvion device is used on the lower layers of skin, the result is the production of fresh collagen-rich tissue, which gives the skin a lighter, more youthful tone.

How is Renuvion Different Than Laser Resurfacing Treatments?

Laser resurfacing, or CO2 fractional skin resurfacing, used to be the go-to procedure for issues like skin-discoloration, minor facial wrinkles, fine lines, and scars, and the procedure is still in use today.

Like Renuvion, lasers heat the tissues at the treatment area, which creates the intended tightening effect.

The biggest difference between the two is the precision that is allowed by the Renuvion hand-held applicator. Lasers are used to treat general areas and the outer layers of skin could be affected. Renuvion is far more precise. Not to mention, the new and amazing technology is associated with faster recovery times when compared to similar laser treatments.

The Battle: J-Plasma Over Laser Cosmetics

Now that you know more about J-Plasma and laser cosmetics technology, let us weigh one procedure against the other.

Are You a Good Candidate?

You are considered a good candidate for Renuvion or laser cosmetics if you are in good general health and have realistic outcomes for the results. The first step is to schedule an appointment with a qualified cosmetic surgeon. Even though Renuvion is considered a non-surgical procedure in nature, a cosmetic surgeon has the expertise to apply both Renuvion and lasers to achieve the intended youth-defying effects.

A cosmetic surgeon will require a consultation before you can be allowed to schedule for Renuvion or lasers, for the sake of your health and safety.

What Can J-Plasma and Lasers Be Used to Correct?

We can use renuvion to correct the following skin defects.

  •  Minor acne scars
  •  Moderate signs of aging (fine lines and mild wrinkles)
  •  Moderate sun damage (dark spots, pigment changes, and freckles)
  •  Crow’s feet around the eyes
  •  Fine lines around the mouth
  •  Moderate signs of loose skin on the body

We can also use J-Plasma on the:

  •  Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  •  Bra area
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  •  Thighs (helps with cellulite!)
  •  Flanks
  • Knees

Lasers can be used on the same parts of the body, but there is a major difference.

The CO2 lasers used in cosmetic surgery ablate or heat up the tissues on and around the treatment area. The lasers target water in the soft tissue, vaporizing it, and removing it entirely.

Renuvion works differently. The stream of energy heats the tissues without vaporization taking place. This helps to channel the heat-induced injury to the necessary depths to stimulate the most collagen production. This is where the amazing acne and scar fighting effects take place.

Lasers are also safer on lighter toned skin. J-Plasma, on the other hand, can be used safely on both light and dark skin.

Are There Risks to J-Plasma and Laser Technology?

There are risks to all procedures, including non-surgical procedures like Renuvion.

With Renuvion, complications are rare. You could experience unintended burns (either deep ones or superficial), visible scarring, permanent nerve injury, pain, and unacceptable cosmetic results, just to name a few. Choosing a skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon can further decrease your chances of experiencing any negative side effects of the skin-rejuvenating technique.

With laser cosmetics, you risk infection and swelling at the treatment area. Remember, lasers completely remove the outer layer of skin. This means it is critical that you follow post-operative care instructions as provided by your cosmetic surgeon. Use bacterial soap and try not to touch the treatment area, keeping it covered and treated adequately to reduce infection risks and reduce discomfort and swelling.

With lasers, an adult should remain by your side or at least within calling range for the first 24-hours after surgery. You should restrict activities the day of surgery and for several days afterward.

As you can see, the downtime for lasers is much longer and more difficult than that of Renuvion.

Is There Any Downtime with Renuvion?

You may need a few days of downtime to recover after your J-Plasma treatment. This is time your body is taking to heal from the treatments, building the most collagen where you need it most. You should be back to your normal activities after a week.

As you can see, Renuvion offers a much easier recovery period than lasers, letting you get back to your regular routine with fresher, younger skin.

How Are the Renuvion and Laser Procedures Performed?

Renuvion is performed in the surgeon’s office using local, general anesthesia.

The procedure begins with tiny incisions that are placed in areas of the body where they can easily be hidden. These incision sites act as entry points for the tip of the Renuvion device. These openings are strategically placed so that your cosmetic surgeon can access the necessary tissues under the skin around the treatment areas.

Renuvion takes around thirty-minutes or less to complete, and you can go straight home after the procedure.

With ablative laser resurfacing, the cosmetic surgeon will direct the intense beam of light energy at the treatment location. The laser burns through the outer layer of skin and the underlying layer, known as the dermis and epidermis. This heating of both layers is when collagen production begins to take place, resulting in better skin texture and tone.

The entire laser procedure can take between thirty-minutes and two-hours, depending on the size of the treatment area, and how many areas you wish to treat. You can also go home following laser surgery, but you should always have someone drive you in case you recover slowly from anesthesia.

What Results Can You Expect from J-Plasma vs. Lasers?

Whether you intended to erase fine lines or eliminate your acne scars, you should see immediate results with every Renuvion treatment. Your skin will look and feel tighter and firmer. The texture will appear more vibrant with a healthy glow.

Results with every Renuvion treatment

The beauty of Renuvion is that the results continue to show even months after leaving the cosmetic surgical center. This longer lasting effect is caused by your body continuing to produce collagen and restructure the treatment area over time, making it look younger than ever the more time passes.

How long do the effects last? Well, the J-Plasma technology was only developed four years ago, and the original test subjects are still showing significant results. The results are predicted to last five years or longer when backed up by a healthy skin care routine.

When it comes to instant results, Renuvion beats laser resurfacing by a mile. Some aesthetic patients may see immediate results at the treatment areas, but most will not see the intended results for up to a year afterward. The results can last for years.

Of course, both treatments cannot stop the effects of aging, but Renuvion gives you instant gratification and results that keep on giving. Though the results can be long-lasting, if you are looking for immediacy, laser skin tightening may not be right for you.

How Much Does Renuvion Cost?

A single Renuvion treatment costs between $3,000 and $15,000. The amount you pay will depend on the experience level of the surgeon you choose, the location of the practice, and the extent of your skin rejuvenating treatment.

How Much is Laser Resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is likely to cost just under $2,000 per treatment. This fee does not include other surgical expenses that may be associated with the procedure.

While Renuvion may be a bit more expensive, the technology is still new. The fees could decrease over time. But many patients are happy to pay the higher fees if it means less downtime and more amazing skin-healing effects!

Conclusion

Both Renuvion and laser resurfacing can give you younger looking skin while erasing wrinkles and defects like acne scarring. The more difficult downtime and risk of complications are now pushing more cosmetic patients to trying Renuvion. A single half-hour treatment could give you better, more youthful looking skin.

Ab Etching – Body-Sculpting Technique

Firm, sculpted abs are at the top of many people’s wish lists. Discipline and dieting can sometimes only yield limited results. To truly achieve that defined, sculpted six pack, consider ab etching.

Ab etching is a liposuction technique used to give patients those washboard abs. Traditional liposuction is great for eliminating pockets of fat, but with this technique, fat sculpting is made even more precise.

The treatment time ranges from an hour to three hours. During ab etching, a thin, hollow tube called a cannula is worked through the fat layer. The minimally invasive treatment only requires two tiny incisions.

Speak with Dr. Babak Moein to learn more about the results you can achieve with ab etching.
