What to Expect During Renuva Injections?

What to Expect During Renuva Injections?

Renuva Injections

maxresdefaultRenuva Adipose Matrix is one of the latest and highly promising treatments for skin rejuvenation for patients who want to avoid plastic surgery. The procedure works similar to a dermal filler injection, and can produce very effective skin enhancement and volumizing outcomes in the treated areas.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie is introducing Renuva adipose tissue filler injectable treatment to his practice for suitable candidates. The hardworking and committed Dr. Motykie provides this treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

In-Office Treatment

Renuva Adipose Matrix skin treatment is performed in an office setting on an outpatient basis. Unlike surgery, the procedure will involve no general anesthesia, cuts or incisions. The procedure can be completed in less than 30 minutes, depending on the location and the size of the treatment sites.

At the practice of the sagacious and terrific Dr. Motykie, an advanced and innovative procedure such as Renuva tissue filler injections will be performed under his personal guidance and supervision. Dr. Motykie ensures that the same best medical practices and quality standards are followed for any non-surgical procedure as he applies for plastic surgery procedures.


The treatment provider will first mark the targeted area where the Renuva injectable procedure is to be performed. Once the patient is ready, they will inject a local anesthetic to numb the area of treatment. This will ensure that the patient stays comfortable through the injection process.

In any case, Renuva adipose tissue filler can be performed using very thin needles to insert the allograft fat in the deeper skin layers in the affected area. A single injection area is typically treated with 3cc of fat volume to achieve the best results. This may involve two to three small injections to complete the treatment.

If multiple treatment areas are involved, the total number of injections will increase. All areas are usually treated in a single injection session. Once the injection procedure is over, the provider will clean and sterilize the injection sites to minimize the risk of infection.

The patient may be required to spend a few minutes in the recovery area of the surgeon’s office before they can go home. Some patients may choose to combine Renuva skin rejuvenation treatment with other cosmetic procedures, which would require additional time at the surgeon’s office.

No Downtime

One of the key advantages with a non-surgical Renuva skin care procedure is that it involves no specific downtime or recovery in most cases. Patients can simply return to their normal routine or go back to work after the injectable treatment. Working people, in fact, may even schedule their Renuva injection appointment during their lunch hour from work, and simply return to their workplace after the procedure.

Patients should be prepared to receive two to three injection treatments spread over several weeks in order to achieve their cosmetic goals. Mild redness and swelling in the injection sites may occur in some cases, which will resolve quickly. Accomplished and pleasant plastic surgeon Dr. Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other suburbs and towns in this area of the country for Renuva skin rejuvenation filler treatment.

Who is a Good Candidate for Renuva Skin Care Treatment?

Renuva Skin Care Treatment

Renuva_logo_2xmobileThe skin is the single most defining factor to influence an individual’s aesthetic appearance. As a person ages, the skin starts losing its natural elasticity and suppleness and this is for everyone – it does not matter what sex or race you are either. Loss of skin volume and sagginess in the tissue gives rise to the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, cellulite, a depleted look, and other skin imperfections.

While plastic surgery procedures can reverse these aging effects, not every patient is ready to undergo an invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. This is where a unique and one of a kind treatment such as Renuva Adipose Matrix skin care can help. Dr. Gary Motykie is now introducing this innovative treatment to his practice for suitable candidates.

During the initial consultation, the prolific and innovative Dr. Motykie will carefully determine the patient’s general skin health, skin type, and the amount of skin laxity in the areas of concern. He will match these issues with the patient’s personal cosmetic goals before recommending Renuva skin care treatment or other procedures.

BTL EXILIS Fat Removal and Tightening Before and After Photos

BTL EXILIS Before and After Photos

The BTL EXILIS cosmetic enhancement procedure is one of the most innovative and unique treatments that simultaneously delivers RF and ultrasound energy to produce desirable outcomes without involving plastic surgery. During the pre-op consultation, the treatment provider will educate the patient about all aspects of the procedure.

Some providers may prefer to present BTL EXILIS before and after photographs at the time of the initial consultation. This will help the patient understand the potential effectiveness of the treatment in a better way. Outstanding and practiced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides BTL EXILIS treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities across the landscape.

What are BTL EXILIS Before and After Pictures?

Before and after pictures in case of BTL EXILIS fat reduction and skin tightening treatment refer to a pair or group of images belonging to an earlier patient who has undergone the same procedure with successful results. The pictures include images taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when all the treatment sessions are completed and full effects of the procedure have been established.

The treatment provider will take care to obtain the pictures with the consent of the patient, and present them before new patients in a discreet manner. The patient’s identity may be kept confidential as per the standard norm. The only goal of the provider here is to educate new patients about various aspects of an innovative treatment such as BTL EXILIS, and help them make appropriate choices. ‘Before and after’ photos serve as a visual aid in this process.

Now this will be discussed further down below briefly but this topic is so salient and amazing it should be mentioned in more detail and breadth. What is really going on here is the effect that digital technology is having on this country and world. There is not one organization that has been affected in the slightest by digital technology and many industries have really been transformed by it.

Now the plastic surgery industry has not been transformed by digital technology but it has been able to utilize this technology for business purposes of course but more importantly to offer the patient more information without them having to reveal to anyone their intentions. Never before has so many people had access to amazing information via pictures of this clarity. Now someone can apply what they see on screen to their own body and situation. Now patients can make a decision they are comfortable with no matter which route they decide to take.


When a new patient is seeking non-surgical body contouring and skin tightening, they may not have much idea about the unique BTL EXILIS treatment. They may be concerned to know how this treatment will impact their appearance, and whether it is the most suited treatment option in their case.

Some patients may need only subtle enhancement in their facial skin appearance, while some others may need more pervasive changes in multiple areas. In some cases, the treatment provider may recommend a combination of BTL EXILIS and another cosmetic procedure. In each situation, the patient will be better placed to make the right choices when they have access to BTL EXILIS before and after photos.

Realistic Expectations

Best results in a cosmetic procedure can be achieved when the patient has clear goals, a positive frame of mind, and realistic expectations. With the help of BTL EXILIS before and after photos, the treatment provider can ensure that the patient has a fair idea of what to expect and what not to expect from the procedure. This will minimize the risk of any disappointment occurring for the patient at a later stage.

Online Photos

The treatment provider has an option to provide BTL EXILIS before and after photos on their practice website which Dr. Motykie and his clinic has with acumen. New patients can review the photos even before they are ready for a personal consultation with the provider. Accomplished cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for BTL EXILIS treatment.

Customized Treatment

The BTL EXILIS treatment can be individualized according to the specific needs of the patient. Some patients may only need skin tightening in a single area such as the face, while some others may require both fat reduction and skin tightening in multiple areas. Patients on average need about two to four treatments with BTL EXILIS.

The treatment provider may charge for the procedure on per treatment session basis, or offer a single package price for a series of sessions. Price may also vary according to the area of treatment. In some cases, BTL EXILIS may be performed in conjunction with other procedures. In each case, the cost can vary, and the patient should make a judicious choice according to their needs.

Financial Factors

The practice location will make a difference to the cost of any aesthetic procedure. Living costs are typically higher in main metropolitan areas and prime urban centers as compared to interior regions and small towns.

Another key factor is the quality standards, level of personalized care and the kind of services offered at a particular practice. A procedure such as BTL EXILIS should ideally be performed under the guidance and supervision of a board certified plastic surgeon. Patients should consider the costs offered at a particular practice in the context of the kind of safety and quality levels they may receive.

Cost Comparison with Surgery

The cost of a plastic surgery procedure to achieve body contouring and skin tightening can be significantly higher than that of BTL EXILIS. A surgical procedure will not only involve surgeon’s fee, but also additional costs such as surgical room charges, anesthesia costs, and post-operative expenses such as prescription medications, medical tests, surgical garments and visits to the surgeon’s office. All such expenses are naturally avoided in a non-invasive procedure.

Insurance and Financing

The sticker price of BTL EXILIS are typically not covered by the insurers because it is an elective procedure performed for cosmetic reasons. However, a patient will have access to various low interest financing options. Leading medical care finance companies offer quick loan approvals and affordable monthly installments at competitive interest rates for various aesthetic procedures.

Patients should also check in advance about the payment options available with the treatment provider, and apply for financing well in advance if needed. Kind and marvelous cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for BTL EXILIS.
