Non-Surgical Procedures in Downey

As you age, you may notice new wrinkles and lines or looser skin on your chin and neck. Aging reduces collagen and elastin production, leaving your skin less firm. It can also add fat along your jawline while removing fat from your cheeks. Sun exposure and gravity also work against you.

Non-surgical procedures can help significantly when you do not like the changes in your face and body. They could help relax wrinkles, restore lost volume, remove layers of damaged skin, or tighten lax skin from pregnancy, weight loss, or age.

When you want to change how you look but do not want surgery, non-surgical procedures in Downey could be the solution. Plastic surgery is not for everyone, but non-surgical treatments and procedures could rejuvenate your face and body, leaving you looking younger and more energetic. At The Waltzman Institute, our patient care team, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Josh Waltzman, could address a variety of concerns with quick in-office procedures.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a popular way to treat wrinkles and creases on your face as well as fill in areas that have lost fat and volume, such as your cheeks, lips, jawline, or the backs of your hands. Our aesthetic nurses offer an array of different fillers, each with their own specific advantages and use. Dermal fillers by RHA®, JUVÉDERM®, and Restylane® are hyaluronic acid based, while Sculptra® is PLLA based. The results are immediate, and dermal fillers can be administered quickly, even during your lunch break.

Wrinkle Relaxers

Wrinkles and creases can almost disappear when the muscles that create them are treated with botulinum toxin-based products such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, or Jeuveau®. Specific facial muscles will relax, and stay relaxed, when injected with one of these treatments. Your creases will melt away as the effects start to show.

These products take about 5-7 days to take effect and typically last about 3 months.  Our nurse injectors are experts and could help you make an informed decision about which product will best meet your needs.


CoolSculpting is a non-surgical technique in Downey that uses controlled cryolipolysis (freezing of fat cells) to rid you of unwanted, stubborn fat deposits that will not respond to diet and exercise, no matter how hard you try. Your body then naturally eliminates the dead cells, leaving you with 20 to 25 percent less fat in the treated area. It can treat visible fat bulges on many parts of your body, including your upper arms, abdomen, flank, back, thighs, and under your chin and jaw.

Renuvion® Skin Tightening

Renuvion® uses helium gas charged by radiofrequency (RF) energy to contract sagging skin. It is a minimally invasive office procedure to help tighten skin left drooping after pregnancy, weight loss, or liposuction. Aging skin loses its ability to contract, but Renuvion will tighten it. This treatment can be used on many areas of your body, including your face, neck, arms, abdomen, back, flanks, and thighs. Wrinkles can disappear as your skin smooths out.

Avéli® Cellulite Treatment

Skin on your buttocks and thighs can become dimpled due to its underlying attachment to bands of connective tissue that support fat tissue. Avéli® cellulite treatment can release the thin bands of tissue, allowing your skin to return to a more normal position. Results are seen instantly.

Skinpen® Microneedling

The SkinPen® wand creates thousands of micro skin punctures to stimulate your skin’s natural healing process. This prompts tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue to form. It can improve scars, fine lines, and wrinkles and is safe for all skin types.

More Changes for Your Skin

Numerous non-surgical treatments in Downey are available to improve your skin. These treatments are most often used on facial skin but can also help other areas of your body. They can address acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and overall skin quality.

Dermaplaning and chemical peels remove your most superficial skin cells to reveal new, healthier skin. Dermaplaning is a mechanical method of removing surface skin and stimulating growth of healthy skin. Chemical peels can address any of the following issues:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Sun damage
  • Skin discoloration
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin texture

Hydrafacial treatments use a patented wand to deeply clean, extract impurities, and hydrate your skin. Your new glowing skin is seen immediately. It can be used anywhere on your body where skin could use a boost.
