For those that are surgery averse but wish to lose excess fat, reduce wrinkles or tighten skin, there is still a wide-variety of options. Surgical procedures required downtime with the possibility of bruising, slight scarring, swelling and uncomfortable healing time. The non-invasive, out-patient route can provide exceptional results with minimum to no downtime.
Knife-free procedures include Botox injections, fillers, chemical peels, microdermabrasions; and the ones that can provide more dramatic, longer-lasting results are the laser resurfacing technologies, radiofrequency treatment, heat therapy, light therapy and ultrasound.
Dr. Cameron Rokhsar has a particular expertise in Fraxel laser treatments for fractional laser resurfacing. He worked with the Fraxel prototype for about a year in 2003 to work on its capabilities for skin resurfacing to ablate scars, wrinkles, pigmentation discoloration, and blemishes. Dr. Rokhsar has taught more physicians on the uses of Fraxel than any other physician in the world.
Using fillers and Botox injections can be very effective if the patient’s cosmetic goals are to tighten and fill in any volume lost from the natural aging process. Dr. Rokhsar is an expert injector and uses precision when administering anywhere in the face, such as the eyelids, cheeks, forehead, and almost any problem area can be addressed without surgery.
Non-invasive fat reduction treatments that Dr. Rokhsar provides are top of the line and include CoolSculpting, LipoSonix and UltraShape, which manipulate fat cells through the skin without damaging surrounding areas. The fat then processes naturally through the body, and provides patients with progressive results that take up to four months to fully see. Dr. Rokhsar suggests the non-surgical fat reduction route for those seeking a modest reduction in exercise-resistant fat.
