BOTOX in Bryn Mawr, PA at The Lumen Center

BOTOX is a popular cosmetic treatment that can help give you a youthful, refreshed appearance. BOTOX is a form of botulinum toxin, a natural substance that temporarily relaxes the muscles. It’s injected into the skin to relax the muscles and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX is a safe, effective, and quick treatment that produces dramatic results. The Lumen Center is one of the leading BOTOX providers in the Bryn Mawr, PA area.

Shanna Injecting

In addition to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging, Botox is also effective for treating a gummy smile and can be used to better define your upper lip (known as a lip flip) and create a brow lift effect. It has also been known to treat other conditions, such as migraines, excessive sweating, and crossed eyes.

Another benefit of BOTOX is that there is no downtime, and it has a very low risk of side effects.

BOTOX injections work by blocking the release of chemicals that cause facial muscle contractions. When the muscles are relaxed, it temporarily smooths the overlying skin. As a result, BOTOX wards off fine lines and wrinkles, and the skin retains a flattened, softened appearance. Botox is most commonly used to treat frown lines (the 11’s between the eyes), forehead lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, and a variety of other areas of the face that produce wrinkles.

When you come in for your consultation, our expert aesthetic nurse practitioner will assess your skin and determine where Botox would be most effective. They will also discuss your desired results and any potential risks associated with the procedure.

If you decide to proceed with the Botox treatment, our injector will disinfect the areas and administer the BOTOX using a very fine micro needle to make a series of quick injections into the underlying muscle. Most patients who come to our Philadelphia-area office experience no pain with BOTOX injections or describe it as a quick pinch. You may experience some minor swelling or bruising after the treatment, but this should dissipate within a few days.

The results of a Botox treatment typically last for three to four months. To maintain your results, you may need to repeat the treatment every few months.

You may be a good candidate for BOTOX if you are bothered by the appearance of facial wrinkles and would like a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. It’s also important that candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations about what Botox can do. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not candidates for BOTOX.

If you’re interested in BOTOX treatment, it’s important to consult with a qualified medical professional to find out if it’s right for you. Contact The Lumen Center today to learn more about this life-changing treatment.

Hair Transplant Bryn Mawr

Hair Tech

A hair transplant is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that moves hair follicles from a donor area (typically the back of the head) to recipient areas that are bald or thinning. It is primarily used to treat male- and female-pattern baldness (also known as androgenetic alopecia).

There are two primary methods of hair transplant: follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). In FUT, a doctor will remove a section of the scalp on the back of the head containing several thousand individual hairs. These hairs will then be transplanted to another part of the head. However, it also leaves a noticeable linear scar where the strip of hair was removed. 

In an FUE procedure, doctors will gently remove individual hair follicles from the donor area and transplant them to the affected areas. FUE is the most advanced technique in the hair transplant industry and the only method we use at The Lumen Center.

The Lumen Center is one of the premier hair transplant providers in the Philadelphia region, and we’re the only provider of the ARTAS iX® robotic hair transplant technology in the Philadelphia area. We’re also one of only 5 practices in the entire country to offer both the ARTAS and NeoGraft® Systems, giving you the best minimally invasive options for hair restoration in one place.

A hair transplant can restore your hairline, fill in thinning areas, and restore your confidence in your appearance. Specifically, a follicular unit extraction (FUE) transplant offers these benefits:

  • Very safe, minimally invasive, and relatively minor procedure
  • Minimal bleeding and fewer complications than with the “strip” method
  • Performed with local anesthetic and patients experience minimal to no discomfort
  • No scalpel incision, no sutures, and quick recovery times
  • No plugs or linear scar

A hair transplant procedure usually takes around four to eight hours to complete, depending on the size of the area being treated. The first step is to numb the scalp with a local anesthetic to help minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

The ARTAS iX system uses a high-definition stereoscopic vision system, robotic arm, and AI algorithms to identify and select the optimum hair follicles from the donor area for transplanting. Then, the physician-guided robot takes those healthy follicles and implants them in the recipient site. NeoGraft utilizes an automated handpiece, also providing patients with little to no discomfort during the hair transplant procedure.

After the procedure, we’ll provide post-care instructions and follow you carefully to ensure you’re healing during the recovery process. Downtime is minimal, typically over a long weekend. You’ll start to see new hair growth within 4-6 months and full results at the one-year mark.

Nearly all Philadelphia patients who suffer from alopecia are good candidates for the ARTAS iX, NeoGraft Automated FUE system, or both. In general, you are a good candidate for a hair transplant if you have:

  • A stable pattern of hair loss
  • Good quality hair follicles that will be resistant to future hair loss
  • Enough donor hair to provide coverage for the desired area
  • Realistic expectations for the results of the transplant

When you come in for a free consultation, we’ll ask you a series of questions, provide a hair and scalp analysis, and discuss all of your hair loss treatment options. To learn more about whether you're a good candidate for this treatment, contact The Lumen Center today.

Smart lipo Bryn Mawr

Smart Lipo (also known as laser liposuction or lipolysis) targets common “problem areas,” such as the abdomen, love handles, arms, back, thighs, chin, and neck. This minimally invasive procedure does double duty – reducing fat and tightening the skin. The results are permanent, and you get a firmer, more sculpted body.

At The Lumen Center, we have performed hundreds of body contouring procedures each year since opening in 2005. The artistry and one-on-one personalized care you receive before and after your Smart Lipo procedure are unparalleled in the Philadelphia area. You will receive top-notch treatment and superior, natural-looking results.

Cost of Smart lipo in Philadelphia

Smart Lipo offers many benefits over traditional liposuction. Traditional liposuction surgery is typically a more invasive procedure that results in noticeable scarring, a long recovery, and doesn’t have skin tightening benefits. Smart Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure and a safer option performed under local anesthesia. Smart Lipo uses innovative technology that results in faster healing and little to no scarring.

Smart Lipo also allows you to achieve better results than traditional liposuction. Because it uses laser energy, Smart Lipo can target and break down fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues or nerves. This approach helps ensure your results are smooth and natural looking, and heat from the laser also provides additional skin-tightening benefits.

Smart Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure is performed with local anesthesia. Small nicks in the skin are made (about the size of a freckle), and heat from the laser softens the fat cells, which are then gently suctioned from the body. The heat from the device results in less bleeding, swelling, and bruising. It causes you to heal faster, and there are no stitches. Recovery time is typically over a long weekend, and there is minimal scarring.

A good candidate for Smart Lipo is in good health and relatively close to their ideal weight. Smart Lipo is not a weight loss treatment and is meant to address localized pockets of fat and help contour the body by removing unwanted fat. Smart Lipo can also address areas of your body that are not proportionate to your body overall.

Brazilian Butt Lift Bryn Mawr

Brazilian Butt Lift Wilmington

A Brazilian Butt Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that helps improve the shape and size of the buttocks. It is a popular option for those who are looking to enhance their curves and add more volume to their backside. The procedure involves removing fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen and love handles, and then strategically injecting the fat into the buttocks. This can help create a fuller, rounder appearance.

The Lumen Center is a premier provider of the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure in the Philadelphia area. Our vast experience and attention to detail produce natural-looking yet not “overdone” results.

The Brazilian Butt Lift procedure is a popular choice for those looking to improve the appearance of their buttocks. This surgery offers many benefits, including:

  • A more youthful and perky appearance
  • Improved self-confidence and self-esteem
  • A curvier silhouette
  • Improved body proportions
  • Clothes fit better and look more flattering

The Brazilian butt lift procedure involves the transfer of fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks. After local anesthesia is administered, we use gentle liposuction to harvest unwanted fat from a donor area (typically the abdomen or love handles).

During the fat transfer process, the surgeon precisely injects the fat into the buttocks in tiny, discrete amounts to sculpt your bottom. This technique requires artistry to achieve a uniform, smooth, and rounder butt. Your results will be natural-looking and symmetrical with your overall body shape.

After the procedure, we’ll apply a compression garment to minimize swelling and bleeding. We’ll also give you detailed post-procedure care instructions and a schedule of follow-up appointments to ensure your healing is progressing.

A good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift is in relatively good shape and has enough fat to harvest for an enhancement. A BBL can also help men and women who want to improve the appearance of flat or sagging buttocks, correct symmetry issues, or have a more youthful figure after a significant weight loss.

If you think you might be a good candidate for a BBL, reach out to Lumen today to learn more about this procedure.

Very excited to write a review for some of the most talented and kindest people in this industry! 5 stars all around and I would not go anywhere else if I am considering smart lipo+ renuvion! And anything listed on their website. In short this is my round 2 of lipo and I certainly can see the difference with the artistic tendencies and vast knowledge coupled with thoroughness of Dr.Kwak, the kindness & expertise of everyone involved in this process. Starting with the easeness to schedule and consult,Dr. kwak's spot on assessment of my requirement & what can be done convinced me to not think twice to book my surgery. Also thank you Rob for putting me at ease & helping me decide on such a big thing for myself! This place in this past 5 weeks has made me feel so well looked after and encouraging my recovery process with careful assessment and personalized resolutions. I am blown away by everyone starting with Julie,Jen ( both of whom have been so so amazing during surgery and guiding with best after care- THANK YOU) Courtney- thank you for all the pictures & keeping me calm with your very encouraging words always and everyone in the front desk, all of whom who seem to love what they do and making every step so easy, this energy simply radiates back to the patients. I am very excited to see my final results and can't wait for my next round of procedures and be a long standing customer for various other things too! Thanks again for being so awesome, I am thrilled to be part of this Lumen experience!

I could not be any more happier with the hair transplant I received. This week marks a year since my procedure and the results are remarkable. Not going to lie, I am a very impatient person and pretty skeptical, but the team calmed me down, and sure enough, I saw the results I was dreaming of. I started to significantly lose my hair since I was 18 and as a 25 year old, the amount I lost at my age destroyed my confidence and my ability to even look in a mirror or take pictures with people. It was eating me alive. The Lumen Center team restored my hair and my outlook on life. I am incredibly grateful and if anyone else is considering a hair transplant, I highly recommend this facility. Take a look at the results for yourself!

I just had a second procedure at Lumen Center (Smart lipo). Dr Kwak and his team were so knowledgeable and explained the process from start to finish. I was somewhat nervous but I'm so happy with the outcome. Fitting into some old outfits gave me a real boost of self esteem. I can't say enough about their remarkable compassion and encouragement during each follow up visit as well. The results exceeded my expectations!

I started out at the Lumen Center with the Smart Lipo procedure & I keep on coming back. The staff is so welcoming as you walk through the door. Every time I call with questions, I get the answers I need. I felt nervous before going into my procedure and the staff was calming and understanding, which made me very comfortable before, during, and after surgery. I am thrilled with my results. My personal results went from a size X-Large to a Medium with continued diet and exercise. Being diagnosed with PCOS, I have had stubborn fat that 10 miles a day wasn’t taking off. This procedure eliminated that stubborn fat for a clean slate and an easier way to maintain a healthy weight. I bought a package of the Lipo Mino wellness shots to boost my energy and metabolism and it was a great addition. Dr. Kwak artistically created curves that have enhanced my body and I get compliments all of the time. I now use The Lumen Center for all of my botox & wellness injections too. Dr. Kwak has truly changed my life and I cannot thank him enough!
