SAN DIEGO, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre (LJCSC) is expanding their menu of non-surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic services with the addition of three new treatments: Cellfina™ cellulite reduction, CoolMini™ fat reduction, and Restylane® Silk lip enhancement.
"Cosmetic treatments boasting great results with little or no downtime are very popular with busy San Diego residents," explains Dr. John Smoot, a board certified plastic surgeon at LJCSC. "We vet a wide variety of options and technologies to offer the best products on the market to our patients. We're excited to start 2016 with three great new offerings."
Long-lasting reduction of cellulite with Cellfina
Cellulite affects men and women of all shapes, sizes, and ages, and it's notoriously difficult to treat with toning exercises or topical creams. "Treatment for cellulite has been very limited in the past, and patients are frustrated with the ineffectiveness of over-the-counter options," says LJCSC board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Roark. "Cellfina is one of the first treatments to target the underlying structural causes of cellulite."
Cellfina works by selectively disrupting the tissues that connect muscles to skin, leading to an undesirable dimpled appearance. The device is placed on unwanted cellulite dimples and precisely severs the band that is causing the puckered appearance. Treatment of 25 cellulite dimples takes only about an hour, and normal activities can be resumed soon after. Cellfina is more effective than any topical treatment on the market, and it is the only FDA-approved minimally invasive procedure that's been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite for at least a year.
Reducing submental fullness without surgery
LJCSC is also announcing the arrival of the newest, non-surgical fat reduction system for eliminating stubborn bulges under the chin, above the knees, and around the armpits. The CoolMini is a new CoolSculpting® applicator specially designed to target hard-to-reach areas with small-volume fat. Like the original CoolSculpting device, CoolMini works by cooling targeted fat cells to the point of breakdown. Over the course of about 90 days, the body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells, and patients will see a noticeable decrease in fullness in the treated area.
"Many of our patients aren't interested in invasive procedures, or they simply don't require dramatic intervention to see optimal results," states Lauren Amico Reed, board certified aesthetic physician assistant and Director of Aesthetic Services at LJCSC. CoolMini provides a much less invasive alternative for those who would prefer to avoid traditional options, such as liposuction. Lauren adds, "La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre is one of only a few providers providing treatment with CoolMini in the San Diego area."
New option for subtle lip enhancement
LJCSC is also now offering Restylane Silk, a newly approved hyaluronic acid filler specially formulated to improve lip shape and reduce signs of aging around the mouth. What sets Restylane Silk apart from other lip injection products is that it both enhances the size and definition of the lips and can also be used to smooth away smile lines, helping to restore a pleasing, youthful look.
Restylane Silk is formulated with small particles, making it an ideal option for use in the delicate areas of the mouth. "Lips are incredibly sensitive to synthetic products, which has led to problematic lip enhancement results for some patients in the past," Lauren explains. "It's critical to choose an experienced provider who knows which product to use and precisely how much will deliver best results. Restylane Silk is particularly suited to providing beautiful, natural-looking lip enhancement."
The board certified plastic surgeons and highly trained staff at LJCSC are now accepting appointments for all three new treatments.
