Almost everyone has heard of BOTOX® Cosmetic at some point in time, and many individuals have considered BOTOX® Cosmetic for removing facial lines and wrinkles. The exceptional end-result is just one of the many reasons BOTOX® Cosmetic is rapidly increasing in popularity. At ImageRx®, you have the ability to achieve the ageless-looking skin that you desire, within a peaceful and luxurious spa setting. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe and effective non-surgical approach to recapturing your once smooth, youthful-looking skin. To learn more about BOTOX® Cosmetic.
How BOTOX Cosmetic Works
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the trade name of botulinum toxin type A. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected, by way of a very fine needle, in extremely small doses, into specific muscles that are responsible for wrinkling. The muscles are paralyzed for three to six months and can no longer contract. As the movement of these muscles is stopped, fine lines and wrinkles diminish. BOTOX® Cosmetic is effective in treating: Crow's feet which exist at the corners of the eyes; Glabellar lines the "elevens" that exist between the eyebrows; Lines that exist around the mouth; Forehead wrinkles.
Benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment offers multiple benefits for patients, including: Proven results; Long-lasting solution up to four months; Non surgical, minimally invasive procedure; Little to no downtime or recovery time required after treatment; Minimal discomfort during treatment; Safe and effective FDA approved; Quick 10 to 15 minute procedure often considered a "lunchtime" procedure.
BOTOX Cosmetic Candidates
As even young adults may notice the appearance of lines and wrinkles due to environmental factors, stress, or worry, BOTOX® Cosmetic is ideal for virtually anyone from 18 to 65 years of age. We generally treat men or women who want smoother, tighter skin without having to undergo surgery. It is important to discuss your medical history, including any allergies, with your skin care professional, to determine whether you may be at risk of experiencing side effects. We do not recommend BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment for women who are pregnant. Some side effects may occur, including headache, nausea, and mild numbness or tingling at the injection site. Side effects are temporary and generally very minor.
CoolSculpting is the revolutionary body contouring treatment that freezes and naturally eliminates fat from your body.
There are no needles, no special diets, no exercise programs and best of all no downtime. Developed by Harvard scientists to eliminate fat, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared, safe and clinically proven.
CoolSculpting is the coolest, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose those annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat.
This revolutionary technology targets and cools unwanted fat cells in the selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat bulges.
Patients often spend procedure time reading, working on their laptops, or simply relaxing.
It's safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to noticeably eliminate fat without surgery. The technology was born from the observation that some children formed cheek dimples due to eating popsicles. The idea that cold can selectively affect fat cells was the insight behind Cryolipolysis, the proven science on which CoolSculpting® is based.
How does it work?
Developed by Harvard scientists, the unique, FDA-cleared, patented procedure uses a targeted cooling process that damages the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen, and your skin cells remain, well and healthy. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body.
What type of results can I expect to see?
Typically, each CoolSculpting® treatment results in a 20-25% noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional treatments, resulting in even more fat loss. Some patients find that just one treatment fully addresses their goals. You and Dr. Bucko will discuss and design a plan that suits you best.
Who's a candidate for CoolSculpting?
Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they'd like to get rid of. Dr. Bucko will determine if the treatment is right for you during a one-on-one consultation.
What can I expect during my treatment?
Once you and Dr. Bucko have agreed upon the areas to be treated, the device will be positioned on your body and the device will then draw the bulge up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. An hour or so later, depending on your needs, you're done.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Typically, there is minimal to no downtime after the treatment though patients may experience temporary pain or discomfort. The procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often patients return to work after the session is over. Dr. Bucko can talk to you more about what to expect during and after treatment when you meet for your consultation.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the final results after two or three months.
Are the results permanent?
When you have your CoolSculpting® treatment, the affected fat cells will be eliminated. As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable. If you do gain weight, you may wish to do additional CoolSculpting®.
Do you ever wish you could reclaim that smooth, glowing skin that you once had? Over time, signs of age gradually become more evident, especially on your face.

Shaving is a daily burden that results in nicks, cuts and sometimes even undesirable stubble. At home methods from hair removal creams to epilators provide inconsistent results. Waxing is more thorough, but regular appointments are expensive and difficult to schedulenot to mention painful.
It's no wonder you are looking for a better solution for hair removal!

How does laser hair removal work?
Hair development occurs in three stages
Anagen, during which the hair actually grows; Catagen, the resting stage; and Telogen, when the hair is shed from the body. All of the hair on your body is in one of these three states at any given time.
Lasers target hair during the anagen growth phase by damaging active hair follicles with laser light.
During the procedure laser light energy is targeted at the hair follicle. The natural pigment of the hair follicle absorbs the energy which destroys it. This destruction of the follicle is what prevents future growth from occurring. Because not all hair is in the active anagen growth phase at a single time, multiple laser hair removal treatments are necessary to fully remove all hair from an area of the body.
We recommend laser hair removal sessions be spaced about eight weeks apart to ensure a shift in the growth cycle so that all hair follicles are targeted in the active anagen phase.
Typically it takes five to six sessions at our Long Beach office to achieve optimal results. The number of appointments needed to achieve full and permanent hair removal varies depending on an individual's unique hair characteristics as well as the size of the area treated.
Laser hair removal is very safe because the skin around the follicle is not damaged during the procedure, only the hair and the follicle.
Once the hair follicle is destroyed it no longer produces hair. Remaining hair follicles may experience some hair growth, but it will be lighter in tone and thinner. The efficacy of optimal laser hair removal treatment is almost 99% however results vary amongst individuals. Sometimes new hair follicles develop. These may occur as a result of age, changes in hormones, or even be an inherited trait. Clients who experience this new follicle growth often benefit from an annual follow-up to help keep the treated area completely hair free.
Am I a good candidate for laser hair removal?
Ideal candidates for laser hair removal possess lightly colored skin and darkly pigmented hair.
This combination provides the ideal contrast necessary for the pigment of the follicle to absorb the laser's energy. Patients with white or grey hair do not make good candidates for this procedure. Blond or red hair will absorb some of the laser energy, however the treatment is not as effective on these colors as it is on darker hair. For the procedure to be successful, hair must be darker than the skin that surrounds it to provide contrast.
If you are seeking a safe and permanent for hair loss, laser hair removal might be right for you.
Call our office to learn more about the procedure and to set-up a consultation appointment. Our office may be reached at: (562)961-3668.
