SmartLipo Palm Desert, CA

SmartLipo

SmartLipo is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive alternative to traditional liposuction surgery used for removing excess body fat. A breakthrough technology in body contouring and cosmetic surgery, SmartLipo is an effective way of performing liposuction using laser technology. SmartLipo is a highly efficient laser procedure with minimal cuts and bruising and has significantly fewer side effects than traditional liposuction.

SmartLipo uses laser technology to dissolve/melt fat deposits present in the middle layers of the skin surface. Selective fat cells are ruptured and the liquefied fat is drained off through a tiny incision. The laser then tightens the skin leaving it smooth and unwrinkled. General anesthesia is rarely needed and the recovery period is also quite short (one can go back to their daily routine within a day or two) after SmartLipo treatment.

Benefits of SmartLipo Triplex:

  • Efficient skin tightening
  • Permanently destroys fat cells
  • Improves your overall shape
  • Performed with only local anesthesia while you are awake
  • Short downtime and recovery (return to work within 2-3 days)
  • Endless compliments from friends and family
  • Confidence in your skin
  • Generally, only one treatment session is necessary

Dr. Bush’s Approach to SmartLipo and What to Expect

Dr. Bush performs SmartLipo right in his office, in a comfortable and relaxing setting; with a local anesthetic while you are awake. We dedicate a day to you, as each patient deserves the full attention of the doctor and treatment is often completed in one session.

Areas Treated with SmartLipo:

  • Neck
  • Under the chin
  • Thighs
  • Upper back
  • Love handles
  • Under the arms
  • Abdomen

Get Rid of the Fat with Laser-Assisted Liposuction Using SmartLipo

For years, patients have thought about all the ways they could rid themselves of the excessive fat that makes it difficult for them to enjoy their clothes, activities, and lives. These thoughts usually lead back to trying their luck at the gym, fad diets, and surgery. At Dr. Ronald Bush’s office, the entire team encourages patients to look into SmartLipo, which requires much less downtime than was previously experienced with traditional liposuction procedures.

Many patients consider surgery as only a last resort solution to their problems because of laborious hospital check-ins and added cost, but the procedure is completed right in the surgical and cosmetic clinic. Now is the time to take the first step to loving the shape you’re in with state-of-the-art laser liposuction treatments that melt fat, making it much easier to remove. Using SmartLipo with its multiple laser energy frequencies, it can also tighten your skin in the process to contour and beautify the area.

There are so many procedures available that are nonsurgical but which may require as many as eight treatments to show improvement in the reduction of localized body fat, if at all. While these procedures can temporarily reduce the fat just under the skin, they cannot immediately remove the fat the way that SmartLipo does with its Triplex technology by CynoSure. SmartLipo Triplex will permanently remove focal fat deposits after just one treatment.

Every client knows exactly the areas they want to treat that damage their self-confidence, and Dr. Bush can help you trim those areas quickly and painlessly. Fat removal, is now so easy with laser liposuction using the SmartLipo TriPlex. SmartLipo is successful in just one treatment, which can save you time, money and stress that are often associated with surgical procedures.

Benefits of SmartLipo Triplex:

  • Efficient skin tightening
  • Permanently destroys fat cells
  • Improves your overall shape
  • Performed with only local anesthesia while you are awake
  • Short downtime and recovery
  • Endless compliments from friends and family
  • Confidence in your skin

Dr. Bush’s Approach to SmartLipo and What to Expect

Dr. Bush performs SmartLipo right in his office, in a comfortable and relaxing setting; patients are much more successful in their recovery when they go into liposuction stress-free. We dedicate a day to you, as each patient deserves the full attention of Dr. Bush. Laser assisted liposuction treatment using SmartLipo can last anywhere from three to six hours depending on the area(s) you would like to reduce.

Areas Treated with SmartLipo:

  • Neck
  • Under the chin
  • Thighs
  • Upper back
  • Love handles
  • Under the arms
  • Abdomen

Dr. Bush will provide you with medication to ensure you are comfortable during your procedure. Many clients stay awake during the treatment and are pain-free, some report that it even tickles a little.

How Does SmartLipo Melt the Fat?

During your SmartLipo treatment, and after the anesthetic is applied to the treatment area, Dr. Bush will make small puncture marks in your skin where a cannula moves into the body, just under the skin and into deeper layers of concentrated fat. A laser fiber located within the cannula will send heat energy through these layers of fat as Dr. Bush moves the cannula in clean motions to heat as much fat as possible. Our SmartLipo system with heat energy is monitored as the procedure moves forward, making sure that every application of heat is comfortable and at the best possible level to get rid of your fat.

There are three settings of heat energy Dr. Bush can use with this dynamic tool that begins at 1064nm and continues to 1440nm and 1328nm; when these varied energies come together, they emulsify the fat into a soupy substance that Dr. Bush can easily extract. Patients are awake during this treatment and able to see the fat drained from their bodies. Every client is amazed by how much extra fat accumulates in these areas over time.

While this treatment melts the fat, the laser also helps shake up aged collagen fibers that are responsible for skin tightening and assists the skin in building new and improved elastin and collagen. Your skin will gradually tighten as time passes. For your curiosity, Dr. Bush will also take photos of these areas to compare pre and post-treatment measurements.

After the Treatment

Just after the SmartLipo treatment, you will wear compression garments for support as well as added absorbency dressings to catch any residual post-treatment fluid. Depending on which areas you treat, Dr. Bush can provide additional compression wear that’s unnoticeable underneath your clothing. A friend or family member should drive you home and assist you during recovery. Dr. Bush can also arrange for an aftercare facility or home nursing care assistant, if necessary. Most patients find that after a couple of days, they’re ready to go back to work with minimal discomfort.

Your procedure is totally and completely confidential, although you’re encouraged to spread the word of Dr. Bush’s minimally invasive laser liposuction. All potential clients will consult with Dr. Bush to ensure you are a candidate for this procedure. This is not a weight loss procedure. It is a procedure used to contour your body to its youthful, natural shape.

Botox Palm Desert, CA

Botox

Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that cause fine lines around the eyes, forehead, and mouth, also known as expression lines. By blocking the nerve signals, muscles in the injection site become temporarily paralyzed, thus softening or eliminating wrinkles from the area. These results can last up to three months, and the treatment takes about five minutes to complete.

Facials/ IPL Photofacials Palm Desert, CA

Facials/ IPL Photofacials

Intense pulsed light (IPL) technology is a highly versatile and effective modality that can be used to treat various conditions, including:

  • Vascular conditions (burst blood vessels)
  •  Hypertrichosis
  • Pigmented lesions (dark spots, age spots, blemishes, freckles)
  • Stretch marks
  • Birthmarks
  • Epidermal and dermal atrophy associated with photodamage
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Actinic keratosis

Intense pulsed light (IPL) is a technology used in various skin treatments, including hair removal and photofacials. A handheld flashgun is passed across the skin, delivering a broad spectral range of light that targets hair, vascular abnormalities and other skin issues. Treatment is also known as laser skin rejuvenation and photo rejuvenation.

The IPL Treatment Process (Lunch-time makeover)

These treatments generally last no longer than 30 minutes and only require that you wear protective goggles to protect your eyes from the IPL energy. Dr. Bush will use a hand-held device to go over your skin and focus on specific areas to rejuvenate the skin from photodamage, pigment, and vascular abnormalities. As the skin cells absorb energy, collagen fibers are tightened to reduce lax skin, causing the damaged cells to start the metabolization process so that new cells can replace them. IPL is one of the most powerful tools in our armamentarium to tackle stubborn pigmentation problems. By focusing its energy on the melanin or pigment in the cells it decreases melanin production thereby normalizing irregularities in skin tones. This gives the skin a very uniform appearance. And this is why we like to refer to this treatment as a “photofacial”. It gives you a Cover Girl appearance without the airbrush!

You will begin to see these changes after a few months with continued improvement after every treatment. The treatment causes a slight rosiness but there is no recovery time required.  After the treatment, we do recommend specific moisturizers and a skin care plan to protect the newly treated skin.

Results

Dr. Ronald B. Bush recommends three to five treatments for optimal results as best results can be seen after several treatments, spaced out every four to six weeks. The benefits of photo rejuvenation treatments are achieved with little discomfort and minimal risk. Our clients love the fact that no recovery time is required so they can go right back to work after their IPL treatment.

MINIFX Palm Desert, CA

MINIFX

WHAT IS MINIFX?
MiniFX is a new non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite. MiniFX targets small areas requiring fat and cellulite treatment.

HOW DOES MINIFX WORK?

MiniFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including Radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The Radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful shaping results.

HOW SAFE IS THE TREATMENT?

A series of RF energy is delivered by a succession of pulses at 1 million cycles per second. While this may sound intense, it is very safe. To maximize comfort, the temperature will be constantly monitored, with ongoing accurate feedback of the skin’s temperature. This thermal monitoring provides the utmost in temperature control.

HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?

It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over an eight week period. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments – with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately.

WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?

There is absolutely no downtime for MiniFX. It can be a lunch time procedure. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from their regular activities.

Microdermabrasion Palm Desert, CA

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a way to freshen and rejuvenate the skin. It is used to treat light scarring, discoloration and sun damage and can lessen the appearance of stretch marks and acne scarring, among other conditions. The technique also helps to thicken collagen, which results in a younger-looking complexion. Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells.

Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes the skin appear taut and smooth. Our existing collagen slowly breaks down over time and oxidant forces like ultraviolet light, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption increase free radical damage which in turn causes collagen deterioration. Collagen production also declines as we age, resulting in looser uneven skin. This procedure takes approximately 30-45 minutes.

Microdermabrasion is a procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells.

  • Improve age spots and blackheads
  • Improve hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin)
  • Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance
  • Lessen the appearance of stretch marks.
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores
  • Treat acne and the scars left by acne

Radiofrequency Microneedling Palm Desert, CA

Radiofrequency Microneedling

RF technologies deliver an electrical energy into the skin, thereby heating collagen to approximately 60 degrees Celsius which is needed to produce new collagen and subsequent tissue tightening and remodeling.

Benefits of Radiofrequency with Microneedling:

  • Safely works on all skin types,
  • Rejuvenates damaged skin cells
  • Fractionated to allow healthy cells to regenerate
  • Safer skin treatments with less damage to the dermal layer
  • Reduced recovery time
  • Smooth acne scarring
  • Individualized treatments
  • Treat precise depths of the skin
  • Noninvasive
  • Comfortable
  • Addresses skin laxity by tightening over time
  • Restores blood circulation in the skin
  • Promotes smaller pore size
  • Face (lower and upper)
  • Décolletage
  • Neck
  • Forehead
  • Periorbital area (around the eyes)
  • Abdomen (great for reducing stretch marks)

Results and Recovery

After your microneedling treatment is done, Dr. Bush will recommend some cosmeceutical products to help with hydration and recovery. Radiofrequency energy heats the skin to a point where it reduces any bleeding during the treatment so afterward very minimal scabbing is present.

It will only take a couple of days for the skin to recover completely, but healing beneath the surface will continue over the next few weeks. In addition to this initial treatment, it’s recommended that you have Dr. Bush perform three or more treatments to reach your final results.

Titan Procedure Palm Desert, CA

Titan Procedure

Titan tissue tightening is a non-surgical alternative to a facelift that uses infrared light technology to tighten skin and reverse the signs of aging. Titan™ laser treatment works by heating the natural water in your dermis, your deepest layer of skin. This heat rises to a very specific temperature, which stimulates collagen production.

Titan™ laser skin tightening provides a more uniform dispersal of energy than other methods, like radio frequency, resulting in more effective skin tightening. Titan™ skin treatment is a safe and versatile procedure able to correct loose skin over the entire body, including your abdomen, upper arms, or thighs. Titan™ facelifts can tone and tighten facial skin, returning it to more youthful contours. The face is the most common area for Titan™ laser treatments, especially for helping with lax skin by the jaw and neck. It is one of the few non-surgical treatments available to effectively treat this area in all skin types.

Titan™ skin tightening procedures can be performed in less than an hour. One laser skin tightening session can produce vastly improved results, but 3-5 sessions are recommended for optimum collagen growth and tightening. Results of Titan™ laser skin treatments can be seen after the first few weeks, but it usually takes up to 6 months before the full benefits are observed. Titan’s infrared technology is a great way to safely fight wrinkles and other signs of aging without incisions, injections, or bothersome downtime.
