The focus often falls on facial treatments, but the body can benefit from some care and sculpting of its own.

Hair loss can happen to men and women, but most types can be treated, and you can restore lost hair. To treat hair loss, Dr. Leong has developed a treatment plan that includes prescription medication, supplements, and stem cell nutrition, as well as laser treatments, among other options. Each treatment will be custom-developed after a thorough medical exam.
Dr. Leong uses Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) technology of the VBeam Laser to treat redness from rosacea and broken capillaries or spider veins in the skin. The laser energy makes contact with the pigment in the discolored vein. Without harming the surrounding skin, the energy from the laser causes the vein to collapse. Patients with varicose veins or deeper and larger veins may not be a candidate for this procedure and should consult with a vascular surgeon for removal.
Treatments take between 25 and 40 minutes, depending on the number of veins treated. Some people need more than one session. The body takes time to clear away the remaining pigment, so the vein will continue to fade for several weeks.
UltraShape® POWER uses ultrasound energy to travel through the skin and disrupt fat cells. These fat cells break down, and the body removes them, leaving people with smoother, more contoured skin.
Most people have three treatment sessions, each one three weeks apart. People start to see results as soon as two weeks after treatment, but full results continue to develop through each session.
The VelaShape® III uses three different types of energy to remodel the deeper layers of the skin. By using radiofrequency, infrared heat, and mechanical (vibration) energies, this treatment triggers collagen development and results in firmer, tighter skin with less cellulite.
Many people report that the VelaShape® III feels like a warm massage. Treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes, and most people will have three or four sessions, each a few weeks apart. Results start to become visible in two weeks, and people will see full results in two months.
Many people struggle with their body image, but Dr. Leong wants to help them change it for the better. A rejuvenated hairline or more sculpted abdomen can give a person a tremendous boost of confidence.
None of these treatments should stop people from returning to work or their usual routine, although some people might experience some minor soreness depending on the treatment.
Results include a more contoured and toned shape with less fat, the fading of spider veins, and the restoration of lost hair. These results can be life-changing for some people and can give them back their self-esteem.
Accufit™ uses powerful electrical pulses to stimulate muscle contractions. Repeated tightening of the muscle causes it to become stronger, develop more muscle mass, and appear more toned and defined. Accufit™ mimics four different types of motion to provide the equivalent of many workout sessions in one short treatment. This treatment can also be used alongside liposuction or tummy tuck procedures to achieve optimal core rejuvenation. Accufit™ is a great first step to getting your core back!
Treatment takes about thirty minutes, and Accufit™ can simultaneously treat more than one area. While you may feel your muscles contracting, this is not uncomfortable. After treatment, you may feel some aching or soreness like you would after a workout. You can resume your regular activities right after treatment with no restrictions.

Many of us have “pinchable” areas of fat that are nearly impossible to burn off with diet and exercise. Body contouring or body sculpting is an umbrella term for nonsurgical treatments to create a firm and toned body. Some common methods to achieve this goal include ultrasound energy (no heat or freezing). Our nonsurgical liposuction with the innovative UltraShape Power technology can reshape targeted areas of body fat. While surgical liposuction is a highly effective treatment to remove larger amounts of body fat, patients of plastic surgeon Dr. Karen Leong (who want to avoid surgery or only need a small volume of fat removed) may consider this method of body contouring.
Nonsurgical skin tightening is a non-invasive, safe, and effective anti-aging treatment for the face and neck area. It can also help with loose skin around your belly or upper arms. Radiofrequency or heat waves help stimulate collagen and elastin in addition to speeding up the cell turnover. This results in firmer, healthier skin over time and for the long term.
Dr. Leong offers these nonsurgical skin tightening options with VelaShape® III, which uses radiofrequency, infrared heat, and mechanical (vibration) energies, and the advanced Thermage technology with radiofrequency to patients who qualify. If you wish to tone the skin on your face and body without the recovery time and expense of a surgical lift procedure, this could be a great option.
