rejuvla laser treatments

Pricing can be found here for all of our procedures. Treatments are typically sold as packages of 4 treatments to produce maximum long lasting results.

Most procedures take anywhere from 45 minutes for the Rejuv treatment to 90 minutes for the Rejuv & Resurface treatment. This is total time including the topical numbing cream application and procedure time.

Downtime can range from no downtime to a few days for most of our treatments. You may have slight redness, similar to a mild sunburn or slight swelling. This generally clears up in 1 day. For pigmentation treatments (dark sun spots) you can expect those treated spots to get darker for up to 7 days before the crust falls off. This can be covered with make-up during this time. Most people are comfortable going back to work the next day.

We ask that if you are using any topical retinoids such as Retinol or Retina-A, either over the counter or prescription, please stop using for at least 14 days prior to any laser treatment. Also stop any chemical exfoliates such as salicylic and glycolic acid 1 week prior to the procedure. Please check any nightly creams you may be using for retinol and stop using this as well. You may resume retinoids 30 days after the procedure. It would be beneficial to have a microdermabrasion procedure 5-7 days prior to the procedure to help prepare the skin.
All of our treatments are best done as a series of 4 treatments spaces 1 month apart. This is to ensure maximum long lasting results.
While you canget just 1 treatment done if you really want to, we generally don’t consider this sufficient enough to fully maximize your results. After years of sun exposure, reversing this is not easily accomplished with 1 treatment unless you are doing a fully ablative laser procedure which has weeks of downtime. Though some clinics and med spas may tell you 1 treatment is all you need, this is typically not true. Our goal is to give you long lasting results, and this usually takes several treatments. One (1) treatment may give the appearance of clearer skin but typically the results do not last long.
We are able to treat skin type I-IV with all of our treatments. This means we are able to treat Asian and Hispanic skin without a problem. Type V and VI skin can be treated with more limited applications. A consult and thorough examination is performed prior to any treatment to minimize side effects.

We use the Pro Yellow Laser. It is a new, innovative yellow diode 577nm laser designed specifically for vessels, melanin, and melasma. It has a fractional hand piece that is used to fractionally rejuvenate larger areas and a spot hand piece used to target specific lesions, pigment, or vessels. The laser is made in Germany and we are one of the few clinics in the country to utilize this unique laser.

The Pro Yellow laser is used by top Beverly Hills dermatologists for skin rejuvenation, as seen on The Doctors TV show. It specifically targets blood vessels and melanin in your skin. Because there is no true one size fits all laser, we feel this laser gives the best chances for success with little risk of side effects. Typically when treating brown spots on the skin, many lasers are able to clear those spots to some degree, but usually the pigment returns or you are left with redness underneath. The Pro Yellow laser attacks not only the brown pigment but also the underlying redness and deep feeder vessels. This ensures longer lasting results. And because there is a fractional hand piece, we are able to not only rejuvenate the skin tone and pigment but also stimulate collagen for long term skin tightening.

rejuvla medical microneedling

Microneedling, also known as percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a non-surgical treatment that uses very fine, short, sterile needles to create tiny punctures in your skin, prompting a natural, collagen-stimulating healing process that corrects flaws and improves skin quality. This minimally invasive* facial treatment is clinically-proven to deliver an improvement over time for several different dermatologic conditions, including facial wrinkles and facial acne scars.

The benefits of Micro-Needling can included a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.
Micro-Needling may also has a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
All parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
A sterile applicator containing 6 microneedles is attached to the Exceed device. A layer of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is applied to your skin and then we select the appropriate setting, based on your unique needs.
Next, in a single motion, the device will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
Because we use the highest strength numbing cream available, specifically formulated for deeper skin procedures, you likely will not feel any pain at all. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the superior engineering of the Exceed device including the speed of the reciprocating tip, finer precision needles, and rotating tip all help reduce discomfort especially compared to other “pens” and devices on the market. Dr. Tracy has experience with many different microneedling pens available and since switching this device, patient comfort has far exceeded any other machine.
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes after numbing time depending on the size of the area treated. Numbing can take 30- 45 minutes and can be done at home if you wish.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.
The total healing time depends on the skin condition we are treating and the corresponding settings used. For example, acne scarring may require deeper settings than collagen induction or rejuvenation. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. The Exceed™ medical microneedling device delivers the latest treatment to repair and restore aging skin, naturally. Clinically-proven to dramatically improve facial acne scars and facial wrinkles, the Exceed™ treatment produces excellent results after just 12 weeks.
Some patients only require a single treatment once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart.
For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 4- 6 week intervals.
  • Epidermis (outer layer of skin) remains intact and is not damaged unlike more invasive treatments.
  • Low risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
  • The first dual-indicated microneedling treatment that is FDA-cleared for facial acne scars and facial wrinkles.

botox | newtox | xeomin

Neurotoxins are purified proteins produced from the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. The most common toxin is called Botox but there are many others including Newtox and Xeomin. They have been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990’s with no serious side effects documented.
Some of the common areas treated with neurotoxin include crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles.
A small amount of toxin is injected right into the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles or undesirable facial muscle effects. This treatment is quick and results usually last for three to six months. The toxin temporarily inactivates the muscles that produce wrinkles, thereby causing lines to disappear or diminish dramatically. It usually takes a few days or weeks after the injection to notice the wrinkle smoothing effect.
After the first treatment, you may return for follow-up injections. Some doctors report that after several treatments, the effect of neurotoxin injection appears to last longer, often up to several months.

Neurotoxin procedure is relatively painless because we use the tiniest needle possible for injection.

Complications from toxin injections to the upper eyelid include occasional bruising from the injection, and a temporary drooping of the eyelid, which rarely occurs after frown line injection. The injected medication is used in extremely small amounts and does not spread throughout the body so you can return to full activity immediately.

dermal filler
juvaderm | radiesse | bolotero balance | revanesse versa

JUVÉDERM® is a filler that relies on hyaluronic acid rather than collagen to plump up the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the human body. Over time, skin becomes loose, thin, and dry due to the breakdown of hyaluronic acid and collagen, which serve to tighten and hydrate the skin.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
When we’re young, fat pads in the upper and mid cheek area give a more youthful, fuller appearance. Over time, age-related mid-face volume and fat loss develops which cause the cheeks to flatten and sag. Deep wrinkles, parenthesis lines develop over time from the aging process and volume loss. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC adds volume to correct age- related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance. Patients reported looking up to 5 years younger at 6 months after treatment. Lasts up to 2 years in cheek area.

JUVÉDERM XC
Deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth form due to volume loss and breakdown of hyaluronic acid and collagen which serve to tighten and hydrate the skin. This is why over time skin becomes loose, thin, and dry. Juvéderm XC can smooth and soften the lines and wrinkles around your nose and mouth for a more youthful appearance. Proven to last up to 1 year.

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC
As with cheek volume loss and wrinkles, the lips lose volume as we age creating a thinner appearance often times with vertical lines. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC is specifically tailored to add subtle volume to the lips and smooth the appearance of vertical lip lines. Lasts up to 1 year.

RADIESSE® and RADIESSE® (+) are dermal fillers that are used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth). RADIESSE® is also used for correcting volume loss in the back of the hands.
