Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa is an integral part of the Fiala Medical Group headed by double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Thomas Fiala. Dr. Fiala provides state of the art cosmetic surgery procedures through his practice and also guides and leads Fiala Aesthetics, which specializes in non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Innovative body contouring techniques such as CoolSculpting are available at the med spa for patients in and around Orlando and Altamonte Springs, FL.

What is CoolSculpting?

Excess fat deposits and uneven body contours are a common problem today due to sedentary lifestyles and other factors. If the fat pockets are stubborn, it may not be possible to reduce these fats and improve the physical appearance with diet and exercise. Patients have various options available in such cases, including cosmetic surgery, laser based treatments, innovative RF and ultrasound techniques, and a revolutionary non-surgical procedure called CoolSculpting.

Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa has the necessary expertise and experience to provide CoolSculpting treatment to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL and surrounding communities. CoolSculpting radically differentiates itself from all surgical and heat-based procedures that involve fat reduction by way of melting excess fat deposits with laser, ultrasound or radio frequency based energy. CoolSculpting is based on a unique cooling process that freezes unwanted fat cells in a targeted area, without affecting the skin surface or healthy cells.

Fat cells in the body are sensitive to cold and cannot sustain freezing for a long time. A focused treatment of these cells with the cooling technology of CoolSculpting enables the disintegration of these unwanted cells. Once these cells start losing their life, they gradually get removed from the body in a natural, biocompatible manner. That makes CoolSculping a safe and effective procedure that does not involve any incisions, injections, heat or laser energy.

Safe Approach

The fat freezing technology of CoolSculpting is entirely safe and the treatment does not result in any collateral damage of surrounding healthy tissue. Fiala Aesthetics med spa recommends this procedure to patients who are looking for a comfortable, painless, and simple procedure to reduce unwanted fats.

Unlike surgery, lasers or sonic waves, CoolSculpting does not involve aggressive techniques such as extraction, burning or shattering of the targeted cells. Instead of forcing instant destruction of fat cells with intensive treatment, CoolSculpting acts slowly and provides safe, healthy, and natural looking results.

Treatment Process

FDA has cleared CoolSculpting as a fat reduction treatment, and many cosmetic surgeons and aesthetic experts around the world recommend this treatment to patients who are unwilling to opt for surgery. The treatment process begins when the doctor or esthetician applies a special gel on the marked area of the body that will receive the treatment.

This gel protects the outer surface of the skin against the cold. The entire procedure is usually completed in less than an hour. The procedure is comfortable, involves no anesthesia, and the patient may read a book or watch TV or go to sleep during the procedure. More effective results in terms of removal of unwanted fat cells may be achieved in more than one session, depending on the span of areas to be treated.

Benefits

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq does not cause any harm to the healthy cells in the outer skin, and only the underlying targeted fat cells are impacted. Invasive instruments such as needles, surgeon’s scalpel and suction hoses do not have any role to play in this treatment. Patients with low pain tolerance and busy mothers and working people who are looking for a procedure with no downtime may be good candidates for this treatment

Most patients can return to work immediately after the procedure, and a busy individual can also fit the treatment sessions into his or her daily routine. Scars and marks on the skin commonly occur with surgical and other aggressive fat reduction techniques. But with CoolSculpting, scars are avoided completely, which is a major benefit for a lot of patients.

Recovery and Results

Recovery after a session of CoolSculpting is usually immediate, and the patient can resume regular physical activity. Results are effective and more natural looking. With the first treatment session itself the patient is likely to experience a significant reduction in unwanted fats, improvement in body contours and a more pleasing overall appearance.

Results continue to improve over a period of several months as the frozen fat cells disintegrate gradually and get eliminated from the body in a natural process. Patients who may need more extensive treatment can opt for multiple sessions from a professionally managed medical spa such as Fiala Aesthetics serving Orlando,  Altamonte Springs, FL and other Central Florida areas.

logo_juvederm_ultraFiala Aesthetics Medical Spa provides a wide range of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments for the face and body rejuvenation. Led by Dr. Thomas Fiala, a double board certified plastic surgeon in Orlando and Altamonte Springs, FL, the med spa focuses on clinically proven skin care treatments that achieve the desired impact without surgery. Some of the key advantages with non-surgical treatments are as follows:

  • General anesthesia is not involved.
  • Pain and discomfort is minimal or non-existent.
  • Treatments can be customized to suit the patient’s aesthetic goals and general health condition.
  • Recovery period or downtime involved is minimal.
  • Results are usually visible almost immediately.
  • Potential side effects associated with a surgery are avoided.
  • Treatments are more affordable compared to plastic surgery.

As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Fiala understands the needs of his patients in Orlando and Altamonte Springs, FL who are reluctant to opt for facelift or other facial surgical procedures. He provides them the option of non-surgical treatments if they are keen to reduce the signs of aging from their face without an invasive procedure. Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa offers a wide range of cosmetic dermal fillers, including FDA approved Juvederm injectable treatment for such patients.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler designed to replenish the skin volume and reduce wrinkles and skin folds on the face to make a person appear more youthful. Skin tends to lose its volume and natural elasticity due to aging, sun exposure, certain medications, genetic reasons, gravity forces, and other factors. This causes the skin to sag and become wrinkled. Juvederm injectable gel products can restore skin volume and elasticity on the face. This reduces the skin’s sagginess and makes the skin smoother and free of wrinkles for a considerable period of time.

Fiala Aesthetic Med Spa recommends Juvederm treatment to patients in Orlando and Altamonte Springs, FL, if they are appropriate candidates for this procedure. Juvederm has quickly become one of the most popular facial fillers and it was the first hyaluronic acid based gel filler to be approved by the FDA. The safety and effectiveness of Juvederm has been proven for people in all skin types. The filler is produced by Allergan, Inc., an Irvine, CA based manufacturer that also produces Botox Cosmetic.

Types of Juvederm

Juvederm received FDA approval in 2006, and has continued to be a sought after non-surgical anti-aging treatment ever since. The advantage with Juvederm is that the results are noticeable after just one treatment. It is a natural, biodegradable gel that penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin smoothly, and adds volume to the skin immediately. This causes the filling up of wrinkles and facial lines, leaving a smoother face and a natural look.

Different varieties of Juvederm filler are available today to suit the needs of different people. The popular Juvederm qualities include the following:

  • Juvederm ULTRA
  • Juvederm ULTRA PLUS
  • Juvederm ULTRA XC
  • Juvederm ULTRA PLUS XC

Juvederm Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC include a local anesthetic already, which means that the Juvederm experts at a medical spa do not need to apply local anesthetic separately. Treatment is more comfortable, the entire procedure takes only a few minutes to perform, and recovery time is negligible. Another fantastic thing about Juvederm treatment is that the outcome is subtle and natural looking. Most people will notice the improvement appearance, but they will not be able to know that Juvederm treatment is responsible for it.

The Effectiveness of Juvederm

Juvederm is available in three basic formulations to match with the needs of different individuals. Results can be customized by applying the appropriate Juvederm treatment.

Juvederm is designed to remove or reduce moderate lines and wrinkles, particularly the ones that radiate around the lips, the corners of the eyes, and lines that are very close to the skin surface.

Juvederm ULTRA helps smooth the lines and wrinkles that occur between the nose, the corner of the mouth and around the lips. This treatment can be in a subtle manner by an experienced Juvederm provider at a medical spa to plump out the lips and restore a youthful looking smile.

Juvederm ULTRA PLUS is designed to reduce the deep and conspicuous appearance of highly noticeable lines and folds. The treatment also helps improve the contours of the face.

Juvederm gel is injected directly into the targeted sites on the skin in controlled amounts with an ultrafine needle. Following the injections, pressure is applied and massage on the site of injection is performed to ensure that the treatment is placed properly. Improvements in the skin can be noticed immediately.

With an AAAASF-certified surgical suite and spa, and led by a double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Thomas Fiala, the med spa is in a position to provide skin refinement treatments from head to toe.

Dr. Fiala provides proven and effective aesthetic surgery treatments through his plastic surgery practice for patients in Orlando and Altamonte Springs, FL. However, as an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Fiala also appreciates the needs of patients who are keen to improve their facial aesthetics, but are either unwilling or unable to undergo a surgical procedure such as facelift. To address their needs, Dr. Fiala has established his medical spa facility that runs under his direct guidance and supervision to achieve safe, proven, and desired results.

Botox Treatment

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first approved Botox for cosmetic treatment of frown lines on the forehead in 2002. Since then Botox has occupied a top position among various non-surgical cosmetic treatments around the world. Now in 2013, patients at Dr. Fiala’s med spa in Orlando and Altamonte Springs, FL have another piece of good news from the FDA. Botox treatment has now been approved by the FDA for the treatment of crow’s feet around the eyes.

Eyes are a delicate area of the face, and any cosmetic treatment around this area must be administered with great care and expertise. Now with the FDA approval, qualified cosmetic surgeons and certified Botox providers are able to treat crow’s feet without surgery, using Botox injectable treatment.

Why Opt for Botox?

Botox contains botulinum neurotoxin, which is considered as an extremely potent and dangerous biological agent known to man. The toxin was discovered about a hundred years ago, and it took several decades before researchers could determine the medical and cosmetic benefits of this powerful toxin.

Botox must be used in highly diluted and controlled quantities to achieve the desired cosmetic or therapeutic results. Therefore, it is always a magnificent idea to receive this treatment at a professionally managed medical spa such as Fiala Aesthetics in Orlando and Altamonte, FL, which runs under the supervision of a double board certified plastic surgeon.

Botox has a unique quality to block the communication between the muscle and the nerve for a temporary period of time. When the medication is injected into the targeted overactive muscle that is causing a wrinkle, it sends the muscle instantly into a paralysis, which smoothens the skin and allows the wrinkle to fade away or disappear completely. Apart from the cosmetic treatment for crow’s feet and frown lines, Botox has also been approved by the FDA to treat various medical conditions, including the following:

  • Involuntary eyelid muscle spasms
  • Severe or chronic headaches and migraines
  • Excessive underarm perspiration

FDA Approval for Crow’s Feet

While announcing its approval for Botox cosmetic treatment for reduction of crow’s feet, the FDA has stated that Botox is an effective treatment that can reduce wrinkles and fine lines that form near aging eyes, which are commonly known as crow’s feet. The effects of Botox are temporary, but the treatment can be repeated under a qualified physician’s supervision to achieve prolonged benefits.

Crow’s feet, which are clinically known as lateral canthal lines, radiate out from the far outside corner of the eyes. With repetitive smiling action or other expressions, these lines can become more pronounced and form permanent wrinkles around the eyes.

The action of smiling makes several muscles active in the area. As these muscles go into a contraction underneath the skin, a natural fold or wrinkle forms over the surface of the skin. These folds or wrinkles become deeper with age as the skin loses elasticity. Botox treatment at a reputed med spa or from an experienced provider can help minimize crow’s feet, and make the eyes appear more rejuvenated, appealing, and alive.

Botox Testing for Crow’s Feet

Allergan, Inc., the company that manufactures Botox, conducted a large study involving two groups of adult participants to demonstrate the effectiveness of Botox in treatment of crow’s feet. The results of this contributed to the approval from FDA. The study assigned a group of 833 randomly chosen participants to receive a Botox injection. The appearance of crow’s feet reduced considerably in this group when compared to the other group that was left untreated. Thousands of patients can now receive the benefits of Botox for the temporary removal crow’s feet, following the approval from FDA.
