    Medical Spa | Beverly Hills | West Hollywood | Los AngelesThe Restylane group of injectable fillers is among the most reliable and widely used facial fillers to reduce the signs of aging from the face. The group of fillers includes Restylane, Perlane, Restylane-L, and Perlane-L. The goal of these products is to volumize the facial skin to improve the fullness of the face, and effective reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, lines and folds.

    Lip augmentation in patients over 21 years of age may also be performed with Restylane and Restylane-L. Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gary Motykie, provides state of the art non-surgical aesthetic treatments, including Restylane cosmetic fillers. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby locations who are looking for effective alternatives to surgery may visit the medspa for a consultation.

    Hyaluronic Acid Based Fillers

    The Restylane family of products has an advantage in terms of its highly safe and biocompatible ingredients. These products are produced from hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the human body and helps tighten the skin by stimulating the collagen. The clear gel formulation of this hyaluronic acid is injected into the deeper layers of the skin, where it performs the function of adding volume and fullness to the target areas of the skin and reduces aging signs.

     The gel is gradually broken down in a natural way in the body, and causes no adverse reaction. No prior allergy tests are generally required with Restylane injectable treatment. The safety quotient of the products can be gauged from the fact that Restylane and Restylane-L are the only two products that have received the FDA approval for lip augmentation in patients above the age of 21. Motykie Medical Spa experts can provide this treatment to achieve improvement in lip fullness and definition for patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other areas.

    Proven Performance

    Many of the leading medspa facilities around the world support the use of Restylane facial filler. With more than a decade of successful performance behind it, Restylane is also the world’s most scrutinized wrinkle filler. According to the figures provided by the company, Restylane has been used in over 15 million treatments across 65 countries. The safety profiles of all products in the Restylane family are well defined. The treatments nasolabial folds and moderate to severe facial wrinkles can be performed effectively with Restylane.

    How does it Work?

    One of the key advantages of Restylane is that it can produce quick results with a simple procedure. The clear gel is injected directly into the targeted areas of the face, using very fine needles. The gel works immediately in the deeper layers of the skin and adds volume to smooth away wrinkles on the surface. The Restylane formulation is specifically designed to act as the body’s own natural hyaluronic acid, which eventually disintegrates naturally.

    Restylane-L includes lidocaine, which removes the need for applying any local anesthetic, and the patient can remain comfortable during the treatment. Treatment volume should be restricted to 6 ml in areas such as nasolabial folds, and 1.5 ml in each of the lips.

    botox injectionDr. Gary Motykie is an experienced plastic surgeon providing state of the art procedures such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Dr. Motykie is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding areas can receive treatment for cosmetic surgery as well as non-surgical procedures.

    Patients who are looking for non-surgical treatments such as Botox have some outstanding news from the FDA. The FDA has finally approved Botox® for the cosmetic treatment of crow’s feet around the eyes. As a cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Motykie provides Botox treatment to his patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood and Los Angeles, if they are keen to reduce frown lines or crow’s feet from the face without undergoing a facelift surgery.

    Why Choose Botox?

    People that are unhappy with signs of aging on their face, but are either unable or unwilling to go for a surgery, may choose Botox as an effective non-surgical alternative. The treatment involves almost no downtime, no general anesthesia and no risks or complications that are typically associated with a surgery. Results are visible almost immediately. Busy working people tend to choose Botox because it does not require them to alter their work schedule for even a day.

    Botox is made of botulinum neurotoxin, which is one of the most powerful biological agents known to man. It is used in extremely diluted forms, in approved doses, to treat several medical as well as cosmetic problems, as approved by the FDA. With the FDA approval for treatment of crow’s feet, Botox can now be used to reduce wrinkles around the corners of the eyes. It can help make the eyes appear rejuvenated and rested.

    What are Crow’s Feet?

    Clinically known as lateral canthal lines, the crow’s feet refers to the fine lines that emanate outside of frown lines from the far corners of the eyes. When a person is smiling, the crow’s feet become more conspicuous because the action of smiling activates the underlying muscles. As the muscles contract under the skin, the folds appear in the skin naturally. When the action of smiling is repeated frequently over a period of time, the skin folds become permanent.

    Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other places who are not inclined in favor of cosmetic surgery, may consider Botox as an effective treatment for frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox medication is directly injected into the targeted muscle tissue that needs to be relaxed. The toxin works instantly to block communication between the muscle and the nerve, sending the muscle into a temporary state of paralysis. This makes the skin relaxed and smooth, and the wrinkle does not appear when a person smiles.

    Approval from FDA

    While announcing the formal approval for Botox treatment for crow’s feet, the FDA has stated that Botox is an effective temporary treatment to help minimize wrinkles and lines that form near aging eyes, which are known as crow’s feet. In 2002, the FDA has given its first approval to Botox for cosmetic treatment of frown lines.

    Prior to that, Botox use was allowed only for medication treatment of conditions such as eyelid spasms, underarm perspiration and severe migraines. Plastic surgeons have been providing Botox treatment as an effective alternative for several years to patients who may not agree to the surgery route.

    Allergan Study

    Allergan, Inc., Irvine, California based manufacturer of Botox has received the approval from FDA for treatment of crow’s feet only after it successfully showed the results of a study conducted to assess the impact of the treatment. The study included two groups of adult participants, out of which one group of 833 participants was randomly chosen to receive a placebo Botox injection.

    The group that was administered Botox treatment showed a substantial reduction in crow’s feet. The treatment is now approved by the FDA, but an experienced cosmetic surgeon will always advise the patient to keep realistic expectations from the outcome and remember that the results of Botox may last only for about three to six months. The treatment can, however, be repeated to prolong the results.

    FDA Caution

    FDA includes a clear warning on Botox labels, which says that the toxin might spread to other areas of the body, which can result in symptoms similar to botulism. However, the FDA also notes that when Botox treatment is delivered in controlled doses, it has never resulted in a confirmed serious case of botulism. It can be inferred from the FDA warning that Botox treatment should be performed by a qualified expert in cosmetic surgery or only by a certified Botox provider.

    women in businessDr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon for advanced procedures such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Los Angeles may consult with Dr. Motykie for the latest cosmetic surgery as well as non-surgical treatments to enhance their appearance.

    Cosmetic Enhancement and Job Competitiveness

    A majority of patients are looking for a suitable cosmetic surgeon to improve their aesthetics in order to satisfy their inherent desire to look youthful and attractive. However, there seems to be a separate segment of women patients who are interested in plastic surgery and other cosmetic treatments primarily with an aim to maintain or improve their competitiveness at the workplace.

    A number of working women in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles and other places appear to be driven by a perception that if the signs of aging become too conspicuous and make them look old or tired, it may adversely impact their career prospects. Women who seriously believe in this perception may feel the pressure to maintain eye catching looks and a youthful appearance at the place of work just to be able to compete with their younger counterparts.

    Most of these women are keen to look vibrant and refreshed, but they may not really be looking for extensive ‘plastic’ jobs that could alter their appearance drastically or take several years off their face and body. Even if they continue to look their real age, they are happy with it – as long as they look healthy and vibrant for their age. Women in their 40s and 50s seem to be more inclined towards cosmetic surgery and other procedures to avoid being perceived as “too old” for certain jobs or assignments at the workplace.

    Minimally Invasive Treatments

    Technological advancements and FDA approvals for various non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures have led to a growing popularity of these treatments. Some working women may choose these procedures over the option of surgery because of some of the key benefits that these treatments offer.

    Many women in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Los Angeles seem to be opting for treatments such as Botox, cosmetic facial fillers, chemical peels, fat freezing techniques such as CoolSculpting, laser based cosmetic enhancements and even ultrasound and radio frequency based treatments.

    From a busy working woman’s perspective, some of the key benefits of non-surgical treatments are as follows:

    • Less dramatic and more natural looking results.
    • Gradual appearance of results rather than sudden changes.
    • No or little downtime involved.
    • Avoidance of risks and complications typically associated with a surgery.
    • No general anesthesia and treatment on an outpatient basis.

    Surgical Treatments for Working Women

    Working women who are in their middle age and looking to ‘freeze’ their appearance of aging signs, if not ‘reverse’ the signs, may opt for surgical procedures such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck with a reputed plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, or other places. Many of the women in this age group may not be looking for extensive treatment, and may just opt for a partial tummy tuck or partial facelift.

    Some women may, in fact, request the cosmetic surgeon to keep their facial wrinkles, and just soften their impression. Their goal is to look natural and look their age, but somehow prolong their current appearance for a few more years and prevent very conspicuous signs of aging from setting in. While there is no evidence to suggest that employers may be discriminating on the basis of looks, but the feedback from many working women indicates their belief that good looks can somehow help them improve or maintain their job competitiveness.

    Job Retention in a Slow Economy

    An interesting phenomenon appears to emerge during the times of economic slowdown. During such periods when job uncertainty becomes higher, layoffs are more frequent and new jobs are harder to come by, working women seem to pay more attention to their appearance to ensure they remain job competitive. A survey of 756 women compiled by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) in 2009 indicated that a significant number of working women think that plastic surgery and other cosmetic techniques can increase their chances of success in their jobs.

    As many as 73 percent of the respondents in the ASPS survey stated that when the economic conditions are more difficult, looks can play a role in finding a job, receiving a promotion or bringing new business for the employer. Four in five respondents said that they believe a cosmetic treatment can help improve their confidence levels, which is a competitive strength at the workplace.

    Procedures Offered by Dr. Motykie

    Facial Procedures

These services are provided through his facility called Motykie Med Spa. Key procedures available at the facility include the following:

    • Botox
    • Juvederm
    • Laser Hair Removal
    • Restylane
    • Skin and Wrinkle Treatment

    Botox is one of the widely popular non-surgical treatments to reduce the appearance of lines and minor wrinkles on the face. This minimally invasive technique involves the use of thin needles through which the botulinum toxin is injected directly into the wrinkled muscle. The chemical relaxes the muscle, causing the wrinkle to disappear.

    The treatment is effective in reducing frown lines, furrows on the forehead, crow’s feet, and skin bands on the neck. The procedure can be performed in less than hour, and involves almost no downtime. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane are also highly effective injectable treatments to reduce facial wrinkles. Results with these treatments may last for up to a year.

    • Facelift (126,000 procedures)

    Like the weather, plastic surgery is always hot in Beverly Hills. The current philosophy really seems to be “less is more” and most patients are requesting a more natural look after surgery. Overall, the day of the “extreme makeover” is over and patients want to simply look like a younger, rested version of themselves rather than undergoing a radical transformation. The reality is, we’ll never reverse time but, we can certainly use anti-aging tools to look as good as we can for any given age. Plastic surgery is becoming part of the arsenal of things that a person can have access to as they consider how they’re going to personally battle the aging process. The plastic surgeon now plays the role of a guide through the maze of numerous procedures an office may have to offer nowadays — whether they are minimally invasive, noninvasive, or surgical.

    Let’s start with the face. A facelift has long been the traditional method of neck and face rejuvenation. It is still an extremely common procedure and most patients request a natural, rested look rather than an over-tightened or “done” look. A mini-facelift allows for youthful contouring of the neck and jowls and it is commonly combined with facial fat grafting to achieve volume restoration as well as skin lift and tightening. The advantage of using fat grafting is the fact that fat has a rich supply of stem cells which are the rejuvenating powerhouse of the human body. There is also a plethora of injectable products that are now available for non-surgical facial rejuvenation that can be used for filling lines and depressions caused by aging. Some of the newest injectables are being engineered to last longer and to contain an anesthetic agent to “numb” the injection site. Lastly, lasers to resurface the facial canvas are constantly being developed and tested. Intense pulsed light can be used to reverse sun damage and fractioned lasers can be used to tighten skin with very little downtime necessary for healing.

    As far as the breasts, silicone is back! Silicone breast implants are now approved by the FDA for use in breast augmentation in all patients over the age of 22. However, the modern techniques in breast augmentation have made the age old question of “silicone vs saline?”somewhat inconsequential. Either implant can be used to create a natural, soft breast and neither implant is “better.” Having said that, there are definite differences between the two implants and these differences need to be discussed with every patient in order to chose the “right” implant in each individual case. Even though breast implants are well-established as being safe and effective in breast augmentation, fat grafting with stem cells seems to hold promise in this area of plastic surgery as well. In the future, we will hopefully be able to manipulate stem cells harvested from a patient’s own fat to reconstruct or augment their breasts!

    In regards to the body, laser technology has now spilled over into the liposuction arena. There are many different laser-assisted liposuction techniques that are now available and there are many more currently in development. The laser is actually inserted under the skin in order to melt the fat before it is removed with the suction cannulas! The laser is believed to improve surgical outcomes by making the procedure “smoother” and less traumatic to the tissue.

    As for treating the skin, the pace of change in the technologies is incredibly fast. There are constant advances in laser- and light-based treatments and the applicability of neurotoxins and injectable fillers such as Botox® (botulinum toxin type A), Restylane® and Juvederm® is always expanding. For example, Botulinum toxin can now be used to erase lines and wrinkles in the forehead, eyes, around the mouth, in the neck and to reduce excess sweating in the armpits and hands! Imagine if this miracle drug could be applied in a nightly cream. Well it might be in the future since current research is showing that the botulinum toxin molecule could potentially be modified so it could be applied as a facial cream instead of given by injection! The potential uses of these neurotoxins and injectables are limitless and we will undoubtedly have all sorts of new variations of these materials in the future. Lastly, a product that is becoming more and more popular is Latisse®. This product promises to grow eyelashes longer and thicker and it appears to be effective since the lines to buy it are growing just as fast as the lashes!

    Just remember that when looking for a plastic surgeon to perform any of the time-tested or newly introduced procedures, please follow a few simply rules to help you achieve the outcomes you desire.

    1. Safety first: Always look for a surgeon that will place your personal safety and health before anything else. These are elective surgical procedures that are aimed at increasing your beauty and quality of life but they can all come with significant risks if performed by the wrong hands. A safe plastic surgeon should alway follows his oath as a doctor to “Do No Harm” as his primary directive.

    2. Board Certification: Always do your homework and make sure that your surgeon is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Being simply “board Certified” is not enough. Always make sure to ask your surgeon what they are board certified in rather than if they are board certified. For example, a surgeon performing plastic surgery can be Board certified in almost anything such us Board Certified in Dermatology, Board Certified in Gynecology, Board Certified in Cosmetic Surgery, Board Certified in Facial Plastic Surgery, etc… but only true plastic surgeons are Board Certified in Plastic Surgery (ABPS).You can look for this symbol displayed on their webpage or (you can check on your doctors Board Certification in Plastic Surgery by following this link. Board Certification in plastic surgery is important because it means that the doctor passed intensive and extensive training and testing that provided proper training, knowledge, ethics and safety in performing all current plastic surgery procedures. It is a process that takes many years to complete and it is never truly done since the American Board of Plastic surgery requires all of its Diplomats to continue educating themselves and reporting their surgical cases to them on a regular basis. The surgeons are also tested on a routine basis in order to assess their continuing medical education and knowledge base of current trends and procedures in plastic surgery procedures.

    3. Surgical Talent: One thing the Boards do not evaluate is the individual surgical and artistic talent of any given surgeon. This is one thing you need to do on your own. The best way to assess a surgeon’s own personal aesthetic and talent is to review their online photo galleries of past patients. Review both the quality and quantity of work. IN plastic surgery, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder, and you must take the time to see if your vision of beauty matches any potential surgeon’s aesthetic sense before every stepping in to their operating room.

    4. In person Consultation: Lastly, an in person consultation is critical to make sure that a surgeon’s ego does not get in the way of you getting the results that YOU truly want from surgery. A great plastic surgeon will always take the time to listen to your own personal desires and concerns about any possible plastic surgery procedure. Before leaving your consultation make sure that all of your questions have been answered and always make sure that the surgeon and his staff are kind, courteous, welcoming and knowledgeable.
