Some people are afraid of pain or discomfort during a treatment at a medical spa like skin resurfacing. Our professional staff do everything they can to minimize any discomfort during these procedures (which are non-invasive). If you’re coming to our Burbank medspa for resurfacing or any other procedure, of course we want you to let us know if you’re feeling any discomfort. We’ll take steps to lessen it.

The Opus Plasma Handpiece uses radiofrequency (RF) and microplasma energy to achieve great skin results. This light causes soft tissue coagulation which leads to remodeling of the collagen within the dermis. The remodeled collagen fills in wrinkles and sagging, for overall skin tightening.

Rather than using one large beam to deliver infrared light into the skin, Opus Plasma uses an ablative CO2 laser to resurface. The laser affects the skin at a cellular level providing great results. The treatment is also very fast. On average, 20-30 minutes. If you’re looking for skin tightening treatments in the Los Angeles area we invite you to come to FemCare. We think we do it best, especially because we have Opus Plasma resurfacing.

The feeling associated with microneedling is often said to be similar to a light sandpaper being rubbed across the skin. The procedure takes 15-45 minutes depending on the size of the area treated. We can also apply a topical numbing agent 30 minutes prior to your treatment to lessen the discomfort. And with SkinPen microneedling the needles are so narrow many say they do not feel much at all.

Nonsurgical treatment options like the procedures we offer at FemCare Health & Beauty-Burbank medical spa are perfect if you have an area on the face or body that you want to enhance, but you don’t want to undergo an actual surgical procedure. There are also many benefits with nonsurgical treatments – one is the ability to obtain dramatic results akin to those achieved with surgery, with much less downtime and discomfort.

At FemCare Health and Beauty Medical Spa, we are proud of our ability to offer a wide variety of nonsurgical choices for our Los Angeles area clients including treating excess fat, aging, loose or sagging skin, skin discoloration, acne scars and everything in between. We feature only the best procedures, staff and technology available, and will guide you in selecting the optimal treatment option to help you achieve your cosmetic goals–without surgery

More non surgical facelift information is available on our website, but in brief a nonsurgical facelift (in our case we use the Profound laser) achieves very similar results to a surgical facelift but without the surgery and downtime. If it were up to us we’d recommend this procedure almost every time instead of its surgical counterpart. Who wouldn’t want a more youthful facial appearance without the hassle of actual surgery?

For Profound cellulite treatment info we’ve got a whole page on our website, but briefly we use the Profound laser which uses radio frequency and microneedles to heat up the skin and cause production of elastin and collagen. Profound needles go deeper into the skin and are more effective in breaking up the fibrous bands that contribute to that lumpy or orange peel look that cellulite causes.
