One of the most exciting parts of my job is learning about the newest developments in technology for plastic surgery and skin care in Los Angeles Recently, I introduced a new laser treatment to Marina Plastic Surgery and The Institute called the Regenlite Pulsed Dye Laser. This is a non-ablative laser that works to replenish collagen deep within the skin’s tissues without damaging the epidermis. Regenlite offers several different treatment modalities and can be adjusted to correct many types of skin problems, such as:

  • Fine lines and creases
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Laxity
  • Vascular lesions
  • Rosacea
  • Stretch marks

How it Works

Regenlite uses low-frequency laser energy and Smartpulse technology to stimulate the skin’s natural healing mechanisms. The laser reaches the lower layers of the skin, called the dermis, to kill acne bacteria and boost the production of collagen and elastin. This results in firmer, clearer, smoother skin that looks healthy and vibrant.

Treatment usually takes under an hour and results in little or no side effects. It is virtually painless, and you can go home or back to work without any telltale signs of treatment. Most of our clients need 3 to 5 sessions for best results.

What’s So Great About NeoGraft® Hair Transplants?

Whats-So-Great-About-a-NeoG

If you’ve been thinking about hair restoration lately, you’ve likely heard a lot about the NeoGraft hair transplant. My Los Angeles practice now offers this high-tech transplantation method. So what are the advantages of NeoGraft? There are many, including:

  • It implants natural hair from your own head: NeoGraft is a follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique that harvests individual follicles from the back of your head. Hairs in this area are genetically coded to stay alive and growing in their follicles. So it’s like replacing the hairs you’re losing with better, stronger versions of themselves.
  • It requires no incisions, stitches or linear scars: Like other FUE methods, NeoGraft allows me to restore your hair one follicle at a time. Because I don’t use a scalpel at all, you won’t get that noticeable linear scar often left after “strip” transplants. Bleeding is minimal to nonexistent, and the tiny areas where the hair is harvested for the procedure will heal to a point that they are virtually unnoticeable.
  • It’s faster and more effective: This automated transplant system allows me to perform transplants quickly, efficiently and uniformly. You spend less time on the table, which means less cost for you. Because NeoGraft harvests your follicles with pneumatic pressure (suction), I don’t have to touch them with a forceps. This so-called “no touch” method translates to healthier, undamaged follicles.

I look forward to answering any further questions you might have about NeoGraft, as well as hair transplants in general.
