What is Radiofrequency skin treatment?
Radiofrequency (RF) skin treatment is an aesthetic technique that utilizes radiofrequency energy to heat tissue at the deep layer of the skin. RF procedures provide a nonsurgical alternative to effectively reduce fat, tighten saggy skin, and improve the overall quality and appearance of your skin. By stimulating the deep layer of the skin, this promotes the production of healthy new collagen at the sub-dermal level. This technique induces tissue remodeling and effectively promotes the production of new collagen and elastin, with the benefits of reducing fat and diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin.

What is BodyTite?
BodyTite, a breakthrough in body reshaping, is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive procedure for body contouring. BodyTite shapes, tightens and lifts the skin, without the surgical intervention. BodyTite gently treats fat in stubborn areas while contouring and tightening the skin, helping you sculpt your body into your ultimate shape, allowing you to attain your desired goals. BodyTite uses RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipoplasty) technology to deliver rapid and uniform heating of the entire soft tissue matrix, combining a tightening effect on the overlying skin as adipose tissues (fat) is extracted from beneath. You avoid the post-surgical scarring and longer down time that is associated with traditional methods (ie. liposuction or surgical body lifts). No surgical scars! Ideally, it is your path to a top-secret tummy tuck or top-secret arm lift. Common target ares include: stomach, arms, chest, knees and inner/outer thighs. Multiple areas can be treated in one visit. Downtime ranges from as little as 1-2 days to up to 10 days. Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 3-6 months.


What is FaceTite?
FaceTite provides dramatic improvement in skin laxity on the face and neck. FaceTite is comparable to a traditional surgical facelift, but without the scars. It is performed under local anesthesia or light sedation. It is your key to a top-secret neck lift. By avoiding a traditional method of an excisional facelift procedure, you will be scar free and benefit tremendously from reduced post-surgical swelling and downtime. Results can be seen immediately, with best results noticeable after 6-12 weeks.



Is FaceTite and/or BodyTite treatment for you?
If you want exceptional contouring without the excisions, surgical scars, or downtime, then FaceTite and/or BodyTite are both minimally invasive procedures that effectively target the face, neck and body. FaceTite and BodyTite gives your face, neck and body renewal surgical results, without the scars and with long-lasting desirable results. Consider FaceTite for a top-secret neck lift or BodyTIte for your secret arm lift or secret tummy tuck. It’ll be your #bestkeptsecret.

Why I Became a Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Zelken was recent mentioned in a Zwivel article!

Some surgeons say while they knew from an early age they were destined for careers in medicine, they never thought they would specialize in plastic surgery.

“When I was a kid, I thought I was going to become an orthopedic surgeon,” says Dr. Jonathan Zelken of Newport Beach, California. “I had my own left hip reconstructed 15 years ago after a freak skiing accident, then did 2 years of orthopedic surgery research, and even began applying for orthopedic surgery residency programs.”

While studying orthopedic surgery, Dr. Zelken took an elective course in plastic surgery. That one class, which he took in the fall of his fourth year of medical school, changed everything. “Immediately, I realized plastic surgery was colorful while orthopedic surgery was essentially black and white.”

From Zelken’s perspective, plastic surgery was also more expansive than orthopedic surgery, branching well beyond the musculoskeletal system. Plus, it invited a more creative touch.

“I saw how plastic surgeons operated head to toe, on every body part and organ system, and how artistic and creative this specialty could be,” said Zelken.
