IPL Hand Piece
IPL, or Intense Pulse Light, is a light therapy treatment used to restore your skin pigment or reduce the appearance of visible veins to produce a smoother, more even skin color and texture. Dual bands of wavelengths work together to selectively target excessive areas of color and clear vessels and patches of darker pigmentation. This can leave you with an even skin tone and a beautiful radiance that can increase your confidence in your appearance.
The Ideal Candidate for IPL
Optimized pulse light is ideal for patients who want to:
- Address the look of small, visible veins
- Treat larger, unsightly veins
- Brighten skin tone to a youthful glow
- Even skin color
Depending on your individual needs, we may recommend between three and six treatment sessions to achieve the desired effect.
1540 Fractional Laser HandPiece
Your appointment for among the best Botox Calabasas has to offer will begin during your initial consultation with Dr. Schwartz and/or Cheryl, his nurse injector. Cheryl is a registered nurse with many years of cosmetic injecting experience, and is an Allergan injectable trainer. She teaches advanced injection techniques to physicians around the country. At your initial consultation, you will be carefully evaluated for the signs of aging that concern you most, as well as your facial anatomy. Using this information, a customized treatment plan will be designed to smooth your wrinkles in the most natural and effective way possible.
To begin your actual injections, Dr. Schwartz or Cheryl will apply ice or a numbing cream to the treatment area to ensure your comfort. You will then be asked to contract your facial muscles so the exact location for the medication can be determined to effectively treat your wrinkles and ensure you’re still able to move your face with ease. The Botox will then be administered directly into the underlying muscles, with the almost painless treatment lasting approximately ten minutes.
Immediately after your injections, you will be given special instructions to ensure an optimal result. You will be advised to avoid rubbing your face, exercising and laying flat for 4 hours after the procedure. This is to avoid the rare chance of the Botox injection shifting to an unwanted location. Other than that, because Botox is a non-invasive treatment with virtually no side effects, you will be encouraged to resume your normal daily routine immediately.
