The one-year progress of Sculptra and Ultherapy treatment at two-month intervals

Facial Rejuvenation 

I have been an active, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Encino since 1985. For rejuvenation services, I now limit my practice to nonsurgical aesthetic and “pre-juvenation” treatments (to prevent early signs of aging). I continue to perform blepharoplasty and otoplasty under local anesthesia, which avoids the risks and expenses of general anesthesia and an operating room. Eyelid surgery gives people who feel they look tired the greatest “bang for their buck.”

Signature Treatments

Patients who are candidates for nonsurgical face and neck lifting under local anesthesia are given a combination of treatments in one sitting. Sculptra is injected to restore lost facial volume. Profound RF (radiofrequency with microneedles) is then performed with the application of platelet-rich plasma, producing elastin and collagen while stimulating growth factors and stem cells. Since the patient is already numb from their hairline to their clavicles, a laser is used to remove brown spots and tighten the skin further. Results last for years.

For the majority of our patients who want a reliable “pick-me-up,” injectable treatment, foundational Sculptra, Botox and SkinVive are perfect. SkinVive is the latest microdroplet injectable. It is a skin booster and hydrator that results in glowing skin that appears well hydrated. Patients rave that they look like they are wearing makeup without having any on. Treatment is quick, easy and maintained every six months.

All-natural Injectable

For patients who prefer not to use fillers, we use their own blood. It is processed by heating and cooling to create the blood protein albumin, as well as platelet-rich fibrin. They are combined to form the 100% natural injectable ezGEL—great for fine lines around the mouth and eyes as well as volume loss in the cheeks, nasolabial folds and under the eyes.

Seratopical Revolution

I am a spokesperson, along with actor Nicole Kidman, for Seratopical Revolution skin care. We believe that affordable, scientifically based skin care is essential.  Seratopical has a patented tripeptide that facilitates penetration into the skin, improving hydration, discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles.

Developing Trust

My three favorite words are “I trust you.”  I personally perform all treatments— bringing experience, anatomic knowledge, board certification, trustworthy ethics, skill, quality and natural artistic vision to the table, thus ensuring that my patients receive safe, natural and effective results. They trust that I will listen to them and never overdo their treatment. I am grateful  for their trust and privileged to help each patient achieve and maintain their aesthetic goals. 

Your Secret is Safe

No one should know that you have had “work” done! Just you and me—and whomever you wish to share your beauty “secret” with—are the only ones who should know that you have had facial cosmetic treatments.
