The Firming Laser Facial
The Firming Laser Facial is a non-invasive, no-downtime treatment that delivers tighter skin, renewed facial contours and healthier collagen. This procedure is available only in the offices of qualified medical professionals who specialize in cosmetic laser procedures.
Skin is made up of two layers: the visible outer layer called the epidermis and the deeper layer called the dermis. The main structural component of the dermis is a protein called collagen, which provides the skin its strength. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, resulting in wrinkles and laxity. The Firming Laser Facial causes collagen in the dermal layers of the skin and its underlying tissue to tighten, thereby reducing skin laxity and wrinkles and renewing facial contours.
The Firming Laser Facial for skin tightening uses laser technology to create a precisely controlled zone of heating in the dermis and the underlying tissue. At the same time, the epidermis is protected with continual cooling. Heating the collagen to critical temperatures initiates a natural biological reaction that causes the collagen to contract and thicken. This process, called denaturation, provides the initial results of tighter, smoother skin.
In addition, the body initiates a second response to heating within the dermis and underlying tissues. This response is part of the body's natural wound-healing system and initiates the creation of new collagen to provide long-term tightening of the skin. The combination of these two processes results in immediate skin tightening plus long-term tightening effects. The treatment is completely non-invasive, with no downtime. For optimal results, we recommend 3 to 6 treatments at 2- to 4-week intervals.
We're excited to inform you that we are running ads in Southbay Magazine during 2012.

Fat Cell Banking
South Bay Plastic Surgeons is now offering fat cell banking through BioLife Cell Bank, LLC.
Fat cell banking offers a safe and affordable way to store your fat tissue or stem and regenerative cells for the future. Until now, this fat has always been thrown away as medical waste. But thanks to BioLife Cell Bank's breakthrough technology, these youthful cells can be preserved over the course of an entire lifetime.
Surgeons are relying more and more on the use of fat as a natural filler during cosmetic and reconstructive procedures on the face, breast and body. Using fat from your own body eliminates the risks associated with foreign or synthetic materials being introduced into your system.
The process is simple. During liposuction, adipose tissue and its cells are extracted using safe and time-tested techniques. This fat tissue is then processed and cryogenically preserved to last for your entire lifetime. If stem cells are chosen for storage, then the fat is processed differently, separating the stem and regenerative cells for cryogenic preservation.

12 Week Scar Management Program - bioCorneum+
Our chosen product to address scarring is bioCorneum®+ (or bC+). Using bC+ will help provide the optimal environment for aesthetic scar outcome. The patented silicone formulation in bioCorneum+ has been shown to flatten, soften, and smooth scars, reduce discoloration, as well as relieve associated itch, pain and discomfort of scars.
bC+ is a self-drying silicone gel for minimizing the appearance of scars while SPF 30 UV protection ingredients help guard them from the darkening effects of sun exposure.
