IV therapy has long been a rejuvenating go-to for celebrities worldwide, and now skin-brightening IV is very much in vogue! It’s about lightening your skin from the inside, with the active ingredients injected into your bloodstream via an IV drip. Vitamins, minerals and antioxidants fed directly into the bloodstream are absorbed much more effective than taken orally via gastrointestinal absorption.
At our Southern California plastic surgery offices, laser treatments are designed to remove unwanted hair from any skin type, to remove veins on the face and legs, to reduce age spot, sunspots and pore size, to reduce blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles, and to improve skin tone and texture.
Chemical peels are a non-invasive way to restore wrinkled, blemished, unevenly pigmented, or sun-damaged facial skin using a chemical solution to peel away the skin's top layers. The new cells that form during the healing process produce smoother, tighter, younger looking skin. Chemical peels can be used on the full face or on specific regions, such as the forehead or the area around the mouth.
Thermage facial treatments target fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing surface skin while tightening and renewing your skin's collagen. Eyes by Thermage™, a targeted procedure popular with many of Dr. Wang's patients, smoothes and tightens upper eyelids and the skin around the eye, making eyes appear more rested without surgery or injections. In addition, Dr. Wang now offers Body by Thermage™ and Hands by Thermage™ treatments, two other FDA-approved procedures for his Southern California patients.
Dermabrasion is a highly sophisticated, controlled scraping of the facial skin that is used to smooth fine wrinkles, especially around the mouth, and scars left by acne or previous non-aesthetic surgery. It softens the sharp edges of irregularities in the outermost layer of skin so that they become less apparent and blend with other facial tissues for smoother-looking skin. Dermabrasion is also used to remove precancerous lesions that result from too much exposure to the sun.
Wang Plastic Surgery offers several lines of skin care products to help our patients maintain their fresh looks and protect their skin from environmental and sun damage. Dr. Wang and his experienced staff will evaluate your face, address your concerns, and formulate a personalized regimen based on your skin type and problem areas. Each product has been hand-selected for effectiveness and continued patient satisfaction.
Scar revision minimizes and improves the appearance of unsightly keloids, facial and hypertrophic scars. It can also relieve the discomfort of contractures, caused by burns or other injuries, which can restrict movement of muscles and tendons.
While scars cannot be completely removed, Dr. Wang can improve their appearance and make them less obvious. Many factors affect the severity of scarring, such as the size and depth of the wound, the blood supply to the area, the thickness and color of your skin, as well as the direction of the scar. So, if you are considering scar removal it is important to consult a board-certified plastic surgeon who will help you determine the procedure that is best for you.
Have you ever wondered if there was a more permanent alternative to heavily-caked-on mascara, expensive eyelash extensions, and sticky, uncomfortable false eyelashes? Well wonder no more; there is now a new FDA-approved eyelash growth treatment called LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03%, which through regular use can give you more beautiful lashes from the inside out.
Latisse is available at Wang Plastic Surgery in Pasadena and Upland, serving the Greater Los Angeles and Inland Empire areas.
