Compression Recovery at MetroMD

Compression Recovery is a form of sports recovery treatment that activates blood flow and helps reduce stiffness/soreness in the legs and other parts of the body. It works by using compression like garments that are activated with air compression and pressure. The retraction and application of compression continuously helps to stimulate blood flow to the region. Compression recovery can be applied to many parts of the body; such as head/neck, back, and shoulders, but it’s typically used on the legs as they are the most common sore or stiff body part.’

Compression recovery is not new and has been used by sports trainers and athletes as a form of physical sports recovery. However, you do not need to be a professional athlete to get the same benefits. For working professionals or anyone who is heavy on their feet trying compression recovery can be a great way to release tension and pain built up in your legs.

This treatment is effective for removing stasis blood from the legs. Statis blood is known to cause RLS or restless leg syndrome along with pain, and inflammation in the legs. The compression boots help remove the stagnant blood while applying pressure to the built up lactic acid.

By breaking apart the lactic acid the compression recovery helps reduce soreness. Compression recovery is also very peaceful and meditative. We are proud to offer our own compression recovery boots here at MetroMD. This treatment can be done in as quick as 20 minutes! Call us today for more information 323-285-5300.

The VI Peel

Our skin begins to lose its youthful glow as we age. Collagen is the protein under our skin that produces its healthy, non-wrinkled appearance. Unfortunately, collagen production decreases as we get older and is directly affected by our exposure to UV rays, pollutants, and an unhealthy diet.

A Vi Peel is a clinical-grade chemical peel that removes the top layer of skin, thereby exposing the younger, healthier layer underneath. The procedure is performed in approximately 30 minutes and requires little downtime. The Vi Peel uses 5 key ingredients which are suitable to treat a variety of skin types as well as improve the tone, texture, quality, clarity of the skin.

Key ingredients:

*Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA)

*Retinoic Acid (Vitamin A)

*Salicylic Acid

*Phenol

*L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)

Unlike other chemical peels, a Vi Peel doesn’t require skin preconditioning. After the treatment, our patient is then sent home with a post-peel kit and instructions on how to gently care for their skin in during the upcoming days.

The Vi Peel is virtually painless although skin can appear slightly red after treatment. It begins to peel after three days, and the peeling will last for an additional two to three days.

Makeup is not recommended while the skin is peeling. A moisturizer (some will be provided for you) can be applied to diminish the appearance of peeling skin. It is also best to stay out of the sun during the peeling process.

The Vi Peel is the latest skin treatment used to combat the signs of aging. Many people love this procedure so much, they have it done three to four times a year!

Micro-Needling for Anti-Aging

Microneedling is an effective anti-aging treatment using tiny, short needles that puncture the skin superficially to rebuild collagen and elastin. The needles penetrate tiny holes into the skin to allow for ideal absorption of skincare or PRP (platelet rich plasma) and produce a tightening effect of the skin.

When an injury occurs on the skin, the body’s natural response is to produce a flood of collagen and elastin to go in and repair the damage. Using the handheld micro-needling device, your practitioner creates controlled micro injuries which leads to multiple cosmetic and skin health benefits.

Microneedling Benefits:

  • Softens stretch marks
  • Increases firmness and tightness
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation and pore size
  • Minimizes broken capillaries and spider veins
  • Improves skin texture and appearance of scars

Recovery is fast and patients typically see best results in skin tone after the second or third treatment. Microneedling treatments may be repeated every four to six weeks with continued improvements of the following months.

Immediately after treatment, you may look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warmer and tighter than usual. Avoid direct sunlight 24-48 hours after your treatment. It is recommended to use sunscreen with an SPF 25 or greater. For at least 3 days post-treatment, do not use any Alpha Hydroxyl Acids, Retinol, Vitamin A, Vitamin C or anything perceived as active skincare but be sure to protect your skin with SPF 25+.

MetroMD Offers PRP Therapy for Knees in Los Angeles

Over the years MetroMD has been on the forefront of regenerative medicine. We have developed some of the latest protocols in cellular medicine, hormone replacement therapy and much more. One of these protocols is using patients own platelets to restore knee injuries to normal function.

MetroMD offers PRP therapy for knees by isolating a specific layer of a patient’s own blood for regenerative use. Typically 7-21ml of blood is isolated and then it is placed in a centrifuge to separate out the PRP layer. Once this layer is obtained it can be placed on sites to stimulate regeneration.

Of these sites knees is one of the most targeted. Injuries such as meniscus tear, ACL, PCL, or MCL tears can be treated. PRP is injected directly into the area that is damaged. This then stimulates the area to heal and ultimately restores anatomy and function.

Typically, 3-6 treatments are needed to treat a patient. These treatments are each done one month apart. After every treatment, the patient’s tissue should continue to regenerate.

Co2 Laser for Acne Scars

Co2 Laser for Acne Scars is an amazing treatment that MetroMD has been perfecting over the last 10 years. Co2 laser for acne scars can help treat unwanted scars. Many people have lived years with acne scars and have tried many treatments to help diminish their scars. These may include creams, facials, peels and more. However, MetroMD has found that Co2 Laser is our best treatment for acne scars.

 

MetroMD uses CO2 laser to resurface the skin and to diminish scars. Co2 Laser for Acne Scars is a great treatment especially when it is combined with a regenerative cellular product. MetroMD combines PRP, stem cells or amniotic fluid with our Co2 laser to ensure better tissue recovery and enhanced results.

Co2 laser treatment for acne scars works in the following way. First, the skin is numbed for 30min using a topical anesthetic. Then the treatment begins where the CO2 laser is fractionated and used to penetrate the skin. Microwells of the laser is formed in the skin causing a perforation which then stimulates the skin to heal. Over the next few weeks, the new skin is formed and ultimately acne scars are removed. However, at MetroMD we apply cells over the Co2 after the treatment. Since the CO2 laser is a type of burn to the skin we can utilize healing cells in the area to speed up recovery and maximize results. Cells such as stem cells are placed here and can help heal the tissue damage that is made by the CO2 laser. In other words, we are tricking your body into healing itself and removing the unwanted acne scars.

So if you suffer from acne scars. Try Co2 Laser for Acne Scars, it is a 21st-century solution to having better skin!

A New Look on Liposuction: No Surgery, No Downtime, Permanent Results

A New Look on Liposuction: no surgery, no downtime, permanent results.

Do you have one or even a few areas of stubborn fat that you just can’t get rid of? Love handles? Thighs? A tummy pouch? Unfortunately, even if you eat healthily and ramp up your gym routine, there’s no guarantee that the results will target your specific areas of unwanted fat. In many cases, these pain points are particularly persistent! That’s why many look to a cosmetic treatment or plastic surgery to finally rid their body of the stubborn fat.

However, many methods have several cons such as scarring, results that are only temporary, days and days of downtime, and potentially scary results! At MetroMD Institute of Regenerative & Cosmetic Medicine, we’re finding many people today are looking to SculpSure® to remove pesky fat.

Why should you choose SculpSure®?

SculpSure is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. This alternative is a 25-minute treatment that destroys fat cells using laser energy heat to target deep within the skin. Unlike other treatments on the market today, SculpSure completely destroys fat cells during the treatment so that they cannot grow back. The treatment is said to feel like warm tingling and requires no downtime. That’s right – you can return to your day to day regimen and show off your new body immediately without days of bed rest. Coupled with a healthy lifestyle, SculpSure gives you a new, sculpted body contour for good!

How does SculpSure® work?

The SculpSure treatment uses a hyperthermic laser to heat fat cells and rupture them at their core. During the treatment, the skin is chilled to ensure no damage while the heat is being directly used to target fat. As these fat cells are broken down, they are absorbed over time giving you your newly toned and slim figure.

If you want to get rid of fat fast without the downtime and scarring, SculpSure may be right for you! Schedule your consultation with MetroMD in Los Angeles, California today!
