Energy delivered into the skin—whether laser, radiofrequency, or ultrasound—is an ideal way to accomplish cosmetic changes without surgery. Different types of energy can encourage collagen production to rejuvenate the skin, break down stubborn fat cells for a slimmer look, and promote healing for an overall more youthful look. At Cassileth Plastic Surgery, we offer numerous laser and energy procedures for Los Angeles women and men seeking the ideal treatment for their unique goals.
For patients close to their ideal shape, but who need a little help getting there, Liposonix® may be the answer. Treatments use non-invasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound to target and damage unwanted fat cells around the waistline (abdomen and love handles), thighs, or knees. Unlike some other fat reduction procedures that can require multiple treatments to achieve results, one Liposonix® treatment can be enough to reduce a waistline by about one inch—which typically translates to one dress or pant size—in about eight to 12 weeks. During this time, the body removes the ultrasound-damaged fat cells for a gradual reduction.

Every surgery will yield unique results, but before-and-after images are an excellent way to see the quality of natural-looking outcomes our experienced plastic surgeons are capable of providing.
Clear + Brilliant laser treatments can help prevent visible signs of aging and address the damaging effects of time and the environment on the skin. The Clear + Brilliant system is a "pre-red carpet favorite" because it leaves the skin feeling smooth and provides a radiant glow. Treatments are quick and gentle, with very little to no downtime. At Cassileth Plastic Surgery, we recommend a series of six sessions, spaced one month apart, for the best results. Fractional laser technology utilized with our Clear + Brilliant treatment creates millions of tiny treatment areas that prompt a healing response to reduce the appearance of pores and improve the look of fine lines, skin tone, texture, and the overall appearance of the skin.
ResurFX® is a non-ablative, fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment effective for treating skin concerns on the face and body. A typical regimen is a series of three treatments, one month apart, to achieve ideal improvement—but one is enough to create changes in pore dimensions. During the session, laser microbeams pass through the surface and heat deeper layers of the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastic fibers. Depending on your skin concern, the treatment may last between 15 to 45 minutes, and you will continue to see improvements in fine lines and wrinkles, acne and surgical scars, textural irregularities, lax skin, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks, for up to six months following each session.
Venus Legacy™ uses radiofrequency and pulsed electromagnetic fields to slowly heat tissues beneath the surface. This heat increases natural collagen and elastin levels to soften deep wrinkles and diminish fine lines, tighten lax skin, and reduce cellulite. It can also contour stubborn fat pockets to reduce bulge and reshape curves. We have four applicators: OctiPolar™ and 4D Body for larger areas, and DiamondPolar™ and 4D Face for smaller areas. The OctiPolar™ and DiamondPolar™ applicators are for wrinkle reduction, while the 4D Body applicator is most effective for cellulite reduction on all areas of the body.
Cassileth Plastic Surgery patients can also choose laser hair removal, IPL photofacials and vein treatments, BodyTite/FaceTite/AccuTite® and CoolSculpting® to address excess fat, CO2 laser skin resurfacing, Ultherapy® to tighten lax tissue, and more.
