For years Botox has helped so many men and women successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. As people age, they long for a more youthful appearance. Botox is able to give them this.
Receiving Botox actually only takes a few short minutes, and anesthesia is not required. You will simply get injected with a fine needle into the specific muscle and feel only mild discomfort.
Our entire staff is dedicated to helping you. We want to ensure that you are happy with your results and that you never feel like you have any unanswered questions. We are here for you before and after your treatment.
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of your skin. The peel gently removes the outermost layer of the skin, leaving you with completely fresh, untouched skin. Results include even-toned, smooth, tightened, and refreshed skin.
Chemical peels can be used to treat acne scars, uneven pigmentation, rough skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and sun spots/damage.
How does it work?
Chemical peels are a safe and effective treatment to remove the outermost layers of skin in order to expose new, untouched skin. Your dermatologist will create a chemical mixture specifically tailored to your face and skin type to ensure the best results.
While patients can return to normal activities immediately after treatment, the skin is sensitive and should be makeup free and protected from the sun for at least 2-4 days. Most patients begin to experience peeling after 48 hours, which resolves itself in 2-5 days.
Hair loss can be the result of several underlying conditions, stress, or improper hair care. Many patients schedule an appointment once they notice that their hair is thinning or falling out, but sometimes, hair loss is not obvious.
Signs of hair loss include:
- Receding hairline
- Thinning of the hair on the scalp over time
- Balding that leaves the crown of the head exposed
- Sudden loss of patches of hair
- Loss of hair on the body
Here at Elation Medspa we use platelet-rich plasma therapy to help with hair restoration. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a 100% natural way to harness your body’s own regenerative powers. In just 20 minutes, this treatment can help treat thinning hair and can help restore your confidence.
How does it work?
- Your blood is drawn normally, just as it would be done in your PCP’s office.
- The blood is then purified in a centrifuge to extract the plasma.
- The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the areas in need of treatment using microneedles for maximum patient comfort and precision, stimulating your natural regenerative process.
Since the PRP is full of growth proteins, the injection will promote the growth of new, healthy hair. We use needles that are finer in diameter than a human hair, for maximum patient comfort.
Mild improvement will be noticeable within the first few weeks, but maximum results may not occur until the 4-6 month mark. Most patients will require several treatments to achieve their desired results.
Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted or excessive hair growth can leave you feeling down and less-confident about your appearance, while ingrown hairs can cause a lot of pain and unsightly bumps. In the past, treatment for these issues was only effective for lighter skinned individuals with dark hair, but fortunately laser hair removal has become more accessible and advanced in recent years. At our practice, we are able to safely treat people with virtually all skin types and hair colors.
How does it work?
Lasers emit a specialized, pulsed light, which is absorbed by the pigment in your hair and then transmitted down the hair shaft to the root. The hair follicle is damaged by the heat of the laser, which prohibits future growth.
Before your procedure, we will evaluate your skin and hair type in order for us to select the best laser to suit your needs. We will also thoroughly discuss the possible risks, your expectations, and the best ways to prepare for treatment.
The duration of each session varies depending on what area of the body you are having treatment. A small area such as the upper lip may take only five minutes, while a larger area like the back or legs may take up to one hour. The area should be shaved or cut short prior to treatment. For best results, we recommend that you do not wax or pluck hairs for three weeks prior to treatment.
Laser hair removal is safe and effective when performed by a physician or other licensed professional specializing in laser technology. At our practice, you can expect the highest level of treatment from our qualified professionals.
Dermal fillers are safe, gel-like injectable substances that smooth creases, fine lines, and wrinkles to rejuvenate your skin and add volume and fullness to your face. Dermal fillers can be used to enhance your lips, fill your cheeks, straighten out your jawline, soften grooves underneath your eyes, and many other cosmetic alterations to reduce the visible effects of aging. Dermal fillers do not fill in wrinkles but rather add volume to the desired area in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in your skin.
FDA-approved dermal fillers can last between six to 12 months before fading and requiring another injection. The lifespan and overall effectiveness of your dermal filler treatment depend on your physiological makeup which is why we recommend consulting your doctor before beginning treatment.
Most dermal fillers last between six and 12 months before they are absorbed back into the skin and the results start to fade. Typically, most FDA-approved dermal fillers are also infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment. Injecting cosmetic dermal fillers only takes a short amount of time to complete, and most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.

What is a HydraFacial?
Hydrafacial treatments work to improve congested and enlarged pores by combining cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection all in one easy step. Hydrafacials are considered a hydradermabrasion treatment and are able to be performed on all skin types.
Does the HydraFacial help with wrinkles?
Yes! This treatment option can help to improve the appearance of wrinkles in combination with a healthy home skincare regimen. For best results, we recommend maintaining touch up treatments.
How long do results last for peels?
Results will vary depending on the depth of the peel. You may have some flaking for 2 weeks after your treatment revealing the new, glowing skin underneath. While each patient will have their own unique experience, the peel will usually help brighten your skin for a few months following treatment. When done correctly, chemical peels are very healthy for your skin!request an appointment
As the name suggests, skin tightening is the process of tightening loose skin on the face, neck, and body through cosmetic procedures. Skin tightening can be used to reduce the effects of aging, promote firmer skin, and restore youthfulness. These treatments can be done in our office, and often, with little to no local anesthesia or numbing cream needed.
Skin tightening treatments include:
- Collagen supplements: Supplements used to increase the amount of collagen in your body and improve skin health over time.
- Microneedling: Also known as collagen induction therapy, this procedure repeatedly punctures the skin with tiny, sterile needles to promote collagen production and naturally tighten the skin.
- Ultrasound skin tightening: Also known as ultherapy, this non-invasive procedure uses micro-focused ultrasound to lift and tighten your skin.
- Radiofrequency skin tightening (RF): Uses radio frequency energy to heat the underlying tissue to encourage subdermal collagen production to reduce the appearance of loose skin.
- Spillover skin tightening: Used to melt away pockets of unwanted skin to firm up the overall look and feel of the targeted area.
- Surgical skin tightening: Includes various forms of plastic surgery.
To begin, we will identify the best cosmetic skin tightening solution for you depending on the targeted area and your desired result. Many skin tightening treatments require no downtime, while the downtime for some more severe procedures such as surgical skin tightening may vary.
For more information on skin tightening or to request an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact us today at (818) 230-5100.
What is RF Microneedling?
Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling is a treatment that promotes the production of collagen and elastin to treat texture irregularities such as acne scars, wrinkles, and sagging skin using a tripolar, radio-frequency device.
How long is the treatment?
Depending on the area being treated, treatment can last anywhere between 45-75 minutes.
Is there any downtime associated with this treatment?
You may experience minimal downtime with “cat-like” scratches that can persist up to 6 days. Your skin may be red and tender for the first 24-48 hours following treatment. You will be able to apply makeup 24 hours after treatment if you wish.
What do I need to do to prepare for treatment?
You will need to have a skincare consultation prior to scheduling RF Microneedling treatment as not everyone is a candidate for this treatment option. We generally recommend pretreating with Alastin Nectar, and depending on your skin type we may recommend additional preparations. Avoid using any exfoliation treatments or products 3-5 days before your scheduled treatment.
What will my post-treatment care look like?
For most treatments, we recommend using an Epionce aftercare kit and Alastin Nectar. If you had a resurfacing treatment for acne scarring, we will recommend an Avene aftercare kit in conjunction with Alastin Nectar.
How many sessions will I need?
We typically recommend weekly treatments for 6 weeks, then on a quarterly basis in order to maintain the results.
Am I a candidate for RF Microneedling?
If you are pregnant, have a pacemaker, or have metal implants in the treatment area you will not be considered for this treatment. Additionally, if you have cancer, an autoimmune disease, uncontrolled diabetes, seizures, vascular disorders, skin that forms keloids, or if you have taken Accutane in the last 6 months, you will not be a candidate for treatment.
Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is a minimally invasive facial treatment that encourages the natural rejuvenation and anti-aging processes of your skin while injecting serum to encourage collagen and elastin growth.
The advanced surgical device used ensures precise punctures with the necessary depth and speed needed to target collagen growth in specific areas of the face.
Microneedling is used to treat the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Large pores
- Minor scars
- Stretch marks
Microneedling is best used on those with healthy skin and no current acne. The tiny, sterile needles puncture the skin repeatedly, triggering a healing response. Patients may return to activities the next day. Redness is the most common side effect. Dryness, stinging, and tingling are also reported.
Results peak around 4-6 months, with the newly built collagen lasting for years. Most patients come back every few months for microneedling sessions.

Varicose veins (a.k.a. “spider veins”) are small blood vessels that are red, purple, and/or blue that twist and turn. They are easily visible through the skin, making them almost impossible to cover up with makeup. They are typically visible on the legs and face.
For varicose veins in the legs, we offer safe, effective, and fast laser treatment that will drastically reduce the appearance of the unwanted spidery webs.
Forget painful treatments and long recovery times, laser vein removal uses energy to destroy the blood vessel which is then absorbed back into the body. Patients describe the sensation as a light snapping sensation on the skin.
Sessions usually take 30-60 minutes depending on the veins being treated. Sometimes, two to three sessions are required for the desired results. There is no downtime and you may resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. Results will begin to show a few days after treatment and will continue to improve for the following six weeks.

What is CO2 laser treatment?
CO2 fractional laser resurfacing is effective in stimulating the growth of new healthy skin while removing several outer layers of damaged skin. By using a carbon dioxide laser, the CO2 laser is able to treat the following skin imperfections: fine to moderately deep wrinkles, scarring, sun damage, skin tone, texture, crepiness, and laxity.
How long is the treatment?
The length of treatment is dependent upon the area that is being treated. Most treatments take no more than 2 hours to complete, which includes the 30 minutes needed for topical numbing.
Will there be any downtime with this treatment?
Yes. It will take an average of 7-10 days after treatment for your skin to heal and recover before you can return to your normal activities and go out in public. Peeling and scabbing will occur between 2-7 days after treatment, and your skin may remain pink for 3-4 weeks. The total healing time will vary from patient to patient.
What can I expect after treatment?
Your skin will feel warm immediately after treatment and may experience minor redness and swelling. Most patients will be able to return to their normal activities within 7 days, and we will provide you with a full daily skincare routine to help guide you in the healing process.
When will I notice the results and how long do they last?
One of the benefits of CO2 laser treatment is the results are immediately visible after your first treatment. You will be able to notice an improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, tone, and texture over time as your skin heals and recovers from treatment. Improvement should continue for up to 18 months post-procedure.
How many sessions will I need?
The number of treatments needed to reach the desired result will vary from patient to patient and will largely depend on the depth of the imperfections being treated. Most patients need only one treatment, but those with deeper scarring and wrinkles may require multiple treatments.
Am I a candidate for CO2 laser treatment?
Not every patient will be a candidate for CO2 laser treatment, especially those with underlying health conditions or those who tend to have difficulty healing or scarring. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding and those with bleeding disorders should not undergo CO2 laser treatment.
