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!

Lumen Center is Amazing!!! From the staff to the customer service. I had Smart Lipo with Renuvion done almost two months ago and I will say from consultation to now post op/ aftercare I have not one complaint! Julie, Megan, Gen, Courtney, Dr. Kwak are amazing. If you’re looking for a practice that’ll treat you as royalty and give you great results for your body type, Lumen Center is the place to go. My results are amazing from a size XL to a Medium in less than two months. I get compliments by everyone I come in contact with. You guys are amaze balls. 😄

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!

Hair Transplant Philadelphia

A hair transplant is a surgical procedure that moves hair follicles from one part of the body to another. It is primarily used to treat baldness.

There are two primary methods of hair transplant: follicular unit grafting (FUG) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). In FUG, a doctor will remove a section of the scalp containing several thousand individual hairs. These hairs will then be transplanted to another part of the head. In an FUE procedure, doctors will manually remove individual hair follicles from the donor area and transplant them to the affected areas.

The results of a hair transplant procedure will vary depending on several factors, including the technique that’s used and how well your body responds to hair transplants. That being said, many people are able to achieve their ideal results from this procedure. The Lumen Laser Center is one of the premier hair transplant providers in the Philadelphia, PA region, and we have the expertise to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

Benefits

If you are experiencing hair loss and are not happy with your appearance, a hair transplant may be a good option for you. It can restore your hairline, fill in thinning areas, and restore your confidence in your appearance.

While some people choose to undergo a hair transplant for purely cosmetic reasons, hair transplants can also be used to correct medical conditions that cause hair loss. If you are experiencing hair loss due to a medical condition, your doctor may recommend a hair transplant as part of your treatment plan.

Procedure Process

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. This will help minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

Next, the surgeon will make a small incision in the area where the hair is to be transplanted. The individual hair follicles are then removed and placed in the area where they will grow new hair. This is done one at a time. It can take anywhere from 30 to 200 grafts to complete each session.
Once the procedure is completed, the surgeon will cover the treated area with a dressing. It is important to keep the area clean and dry for the next five days. After that, the dressing can be removed and shampooing can resume.

It is normal to see some redness and swelling in the treated area, but such side effects should subside within a week. New hair growth can be seen within three to four months and will continue to emerge over the next twelve months.

Who's a Candidate?

If you are considering a hair transplant, it is important to first understand if you are a good candidate for the procedure. In general, good candidates for a hair transplant are those who 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

If you do not meet all of the above criteria, you may still be a candidate for a hair transplant if your surgeon determines that the procedure is right for you. To learn more about whether you’re a good candidate for this treatment, contact the Lumen Laser Center today.

Smart Lipo Philadelphia

Smart lipo is a cosmetic surgery procedure that uses laser energy to melt fat cells. The melted fat is then suctioned out through a small cannula. Smart lipo can be used to reduce the size of pockets of fat, such as those that emerge around the chin, neck, arms, and thighs. It can also be used to diminish the appearance of cellulite.

Smart lipo is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, which means that patients can go home after undergoing their treatment.

The Lumen Laser Center is one of the top Smart Lipo providers in the Philadelphia, PA area, and we have experienced surgeons ready to help you receive the top-notch treatment you deserve.

Benefits

Smart Lipo offers many benefits over traditional liposuction. First, it is a minimally invasive procedure, which means it is a very safe option and recovery time is shorter than traditional liposuction.

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 helps ensure your final results are smooth and natural looking, without any lumps or bumps.
Finally, Smart Lipo can be used to treat smaller, more delicate areas of the body that traditional liposuction cannot. This includes the neck, jowls, and inner thighs.

Procedure Process

The Smart Lipo procedure process is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional liposuction. The procedure is performed with a laser that liquefies the fat, which is then gently suctioned from the body. Recovery time is typically shorter than with traditional liposuction, and there is minimal scarring.

Who's a Candidate?

A good candidate for Smart Lipo is someone who is in good health, has a positive outlook, and is realistic about the results they can expect from this procedure. Smart Lipo is not a weight loss treatment–it is meant to help contour the body by removing unwanted fat. Thus, candidates should be relatively close to their ideal weight.

Smart Lipo is also not a substitute for liposuction, so you should be sure that the procedure is conducive to your goals before opting to undergo it. Some people undergo Smart Lipo to tighten and tone their skin after unwanted fat has been removed with traditional liposuction.

To learn more about Smart Lipo and whether you’re a good candidate for it, reach out to Lumen to speak with one of our experienced cosmetic surgeons today.

Brazilian Butt Lift Philadelphia

A Brazilian butt lift is a surgical procedure that helps improve the appearance of the buttocks. It is a popular option for those who are looking to enhance their curves. The surgery involves the removal of fat from other areas of the body, such as the abdomen or thighs, which is then injected into the buttocks. This can help create a fuller, rounder appearance.

The Lumen Laser Center is one of the best BBL providers in the Philadelphia, PA region. Our staff has been administering BBL treatments for years, and we have a stellar track record to show for it.

Benefits

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

Procedure Process

The Brazilian butt lift procedure involves the transfer of fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks. First, the surgeon makes a small incision in an inconspicuous location, such as the crease between the buttocks. Next, they separate the fat cells from other tissue with a syringe and cannula.

Then they transfer the fatty tissue to the buttocks, where it is sculpted into an aesthetically pleasing shape. After several months, blood vessels will form in the transferred fat cells, prompting them to survive. Sometimes, surgeons use a patient’s own body fat for BBL surgery. In this case, the procedure is known as a “fat graft.”

The results of this procedure can be seen immediately and can be long-lasting or even permanent. Patients that use their own tissue may require post-treatment injections to maintain their appearance, though. Following recovery from the BBL surgery, patients may need to follow a strict diet and exercise regimen to maximize the duration of their results.

Who's a Candidate?

A good candidate for a Brazilian butt lift is someone who is in relatively good shape and has enough tissue to work with. They should also have realistic expectations about the results of the surgery. The best candidates are usually people who are close to their ideal weight but still have fat for the surgeon to work with.

If you think you might be a good candidate for a BBL, reach out to Lumen today to speak with one of our seasoned surgeons about this procedure.
