With continuing advancements in technology, there are many procedures available to treat, improve and enhance just about any part of the body. If you are frustrated with your appearance and have been wondering how you can transform your body, Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics can help. We will guide you through the different procedures we offer and help you find the perfect treatment or combination of treatments to help you achieve your goals.
Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics offers the following body contouring procedures to our patients in the Carlsbad and Rancho Bernardo areas:
Cellulaze is a revolutionary laser treatment that significantly and effectively reduces the appearance of cellulite. A small laser fiber is inserted under the skin to target laser energy directly toward cellulite to eliminate it. In just one treatment, Cellulaze attacks cellulite in three ways by releasing the constrictive, fibrous bands that bind the fat cells, liquefying fat cells and stimulating collagen production. Results are immediate, revealing smoother, firmer, dimple-free skin.
If you have stubborn pockets of subcutaneous fat that won’t budge with diet or exercise, CoolSculpting may be the right procedure for you. It is a one-of-a-kind treatment that uses controlled cooling to freeze away fat cells. Your body completes the process by absorbing and gradually eliminating the dead fat cells. There is no downtime for this treatment, and the procedure itself is often completely painless. You will begin to notice results about three weeks following your procedure, with significant results visible after eight weeks.
The Take Shape for Life® program is of personal importance to Dr. Birchall because it helped him lose 40 pounds and transform his life. Dr. Birchall and his staff offer this program to teach you the fundamentals of eating right, exercising and keeping the weight off. Creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the key to sustaining a vibrant, youthful body.
Over time, the accumulation of fat under your chin can add unwanted volume and years to your face. Kybella works to eliminate your double chin through a series of micro-injections that target and kill fat cells without harming surrounding tissue. For optimal results, two to four Kybella treatment sessions are typically recommended.
Laser Liposuction is ideal for patients who want to precisely contour their bodies without the downtime, recovery time or invasiveness of traditional liposuction. Through a few tiny incisions, the fiber optic laser head is inserted into the treatment area and fat cells are liquified while the skin is simultaneously tightened. In addition, the laser seals off blood vessels in the treatment area, lessening bleeding. A small suction device is used to remove the liquified fat, leaving a smoother, more refined appearance.
MONALISA TOUCH VAGINAL REJUVENATION
The natural aging process, menopause, decreased estrogen and childbirth can impact the structure and function of the vagina, sometimes causing urinary incontinence, dryness, skin laxity or painful intercourse. Fortunately, a nonsurgical treatment exists—MonaLisa Touch—that can improve or eliminate these symptoms through a non-invasive, painless laser procedure that resurfaces the lining of the vagina, stimulates collagen production and repairs damaged cells in the vagina. Three treatments, spaced six weeks apart, are usually recommended to achieve optimal results.
NATURAL BREAST AUGMENTATION
Natural Breast Augmentation uses laser-assisted liposuction and fat transfer to naturally enhance your breasts. Fat cells are harvested from other parts of your body—usually the hips or abdomen—and precisely injected into your breasts to add volume, create shape or add symmetry. This procedure is far less invasive than traditional breast implants, with less downtime and fewer chances for complications or side effects. The result—breasts that look beautiful and feel natural.
NATURAL BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION
Advances in laser-assisted liposuction and fat transfer allow patients to lift and shape their buttocks without invasive surgery or the use of artificial implants. Natural Buttock Augmentation involves harvesting fat cells from where you don’t really want them, like your abdomen or hips, and injecting those fat cells into your buttocks to provide a natural lift and enhanced shape. There is minimal downtime required for recovery, and by using your own fat cells, the results are natural and long-lasting.
NATURAL HAND RENEWAL
If you have noticed increased visibility of the bones, tendons or veins in your hands, Natural Hand Renewal can help restore a more youthful appearance. Using laser-assisted liposuction, fat is gently removed from where it is less wanted, before being purified. These harvested fat cells are then precisely injected into the back of your hands, restoring volume and making your hands look younger. The procedure is relatively non-invasive, using local anesthesia and tiny incisions to harvest fat cells and a micro-needle to make tiny injections into the hands. Unlike synthetic fillers, Natural Hand Renewal uses your own fat cells, creating a more natural and long-lasting result with less chance of an allergic reaction or complications.
PELLEFIRM SKIN® TIGHTENING
PelleFirm® can reduce the appearance of cellulite while tightening skin on the body, creating a smoother, more youthful appearance. The PelleFirm® device is applied to the outside of the skin, delivering radio frequency energy to the treatment area—usually the arms, bust, hips, thighs or buttocks. The radio waves stimulate blood circulation and flush excess fluids from the treatment area, reducing cellulite dimples and creating beautiful, smooth skin. A series of treatments is often recommended to achieve ideal results.
SculpSure® is a revolutionary, non-invasive technology that uses heat to disrupt and destroy fat cells. Over time, the body will eliminate the dead fat cells, creating permanent, contoured results. SculpSure can treat multiple areas of the body at the same time, taking less time out of your busy schedule. There is no downtime and few side effects with SculpSure. Most patients notice results in six weeks with just one treatment; however, multiple treatments are recommended to help you achieve optimal results.
