SCULPT DTLA

BEAUTIFUL

AS YOU WANT IT TO BE

I

n the Battle of the Bulge we the people have sacrificed, crunched, stretched, swam, flushed, starved, ran, jumped, pulled, pushed, and even burned away our body fat.

But those days are over thanks to modern-day health, dermatology and cosmetic physicians like Dr. Benny Hau of Sculpt DTLA who are using state of the art medi-spas complete with body enhancement technologies that replenish, repair and re-sculpt our bodies. The future of all things deemed aesthetic now come with the long-lasting effects. Fat, aging skin, unwanted tattoos, and hair will soon be a thing of the past. The best part is, the new age of cosmetic beauty enhancement is non-invasive, being performed in less time than it takes for lunch. Even better, you don’t have to travel miles to the west to find the best. Because the best medi-spa services are now on 7th and Olive thanks to Sculpt DTLA.

And a child shall lead them...

When it comes to the aesthetics of man and womankind, man’s greatest invention by far is the mirror. For centuries mirrors have stood as personal grooming alters adorned with our presence, and if we are made in God’s image there is no need to feel guilty for worshiping ourselves. However, in our modern day world, one fallen angel is making some of us lose our religion.

This culprit is unwanted body fat.

With unwanted body fat, comes self-doubt, weight stigmatization, higher rates of depression, anxiety, social isolation, and poorer psychological adjustment. Yes, all that, so its only right that we go on a crusade against it. And to think it may all be over thank to the power of ice. Coolsculpting, or Cryolipolisis, is the process of freezing fat cells developed by the scientific community after studies showed babies whose mothers gave them frozen teethers had a noticeable loss of fat cells around their precious little jaws.

Got stretch marks? GONE! Double chin? Gone! Dark spots? GONE. Belly fat? GONE. At Sculpt DTLA your imperfections are eliminated. So “Hau” does he do it?

With numerous primary care practice facilities throughout Southern California, Yale-educated Hau followed up with medical studies later taking on a role as Professor of Medicine at Loma Linda University. For over 20 years, Dr. Hau has been establishing primary care practices throughout Southern California. Yet, as a Primary Care Doctor and Professor of Medicine his interest in the cosmetic industry would be sparked much later.

Behind every great man...

Dr. Hau’s wife of 5 years and President of Sculpt DTLA, Natalia Hau, created the concept for Sculpt with the two determined to become a successful addition to the New Downtown. Natalia, a registered nurse, began her medical career in South America, and works side by side with Dr. Hau performing the procedures on a steady stream of new and returning patients. Patients who find Sculpt’s services well worth the investment appreciate most, the minimal post-treatment side effects.

Dr. Hau has perfected what we call the DTLA touch; warm, welcoming, caring and with the ability to rejuvenate in order to stay relevant.

You GOT FAT?

CoolSculpting is America’s new favorite way to rid unwanted fat and the procedure is Natalia’s specialty at Sculpt. Underarm, tires, thighs, back, chin and stomach fat must go, and with this technique of freezing and, thereby, destroying the fat cells your body will look amazing. Fat is stubborn, but many may not know there’s only a certain amount of fat cells in the body. They grow… they don’t multiply. So, once they are eliminated they are…you guessed it… GONE! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Sculpt DTLA offers fillers, chemical peels and laser treatments to remove wrinkles, dark spots, stretch marks, acne, tattoos, unwanted body hair and more.

Going under the knife? Wait...

Non-invasive laser treatments, facial toning devices, anti-aging facial peels get you back to looking youthful again without having to go to a plastic surgeon.

“Although you may find your Facial injections have given the treated areas red for a few cosmetic dermatology a whole hours, you won’t be hiding your new look and Sculpt DTLA offers some of face for a week”, says Dr. Hau.   the most popular facial injections in Los AngeThe two have a great relationship and work well as a team.  In August of 2017, Sculpt opened and has since become DTLA’s favorite medi-spa, enhancing locals, visitors and A-list celebrities who want to feel and look their best.

Don’t Ever Get Old...

To prevent the further development of existing wrinkles on the face, the use of different laser combination treatments can be very effective and Dr. Hau has them all. The lasers work by damaging your dermal layer of skin. In the process promotes collagen formation thereby regenerating the skin so that a new, softer skin may re-emerge.

Lasers at Sculpt DTLA IPL/ PIQO4: Gets rid of those unsightly red and brown blemishes on your face such as freckles, age spots and spider veins.  Make them go away with their state of the art lasers: IPL treatments or the PiQo4 laser treatment. ReSurFX : This laser can remove those stubborn acne scars or smooth away your facial fine lines and wrinkles to give your face a rejuvenated and more youthful look. IPL/PIQO4 and ResurFX: The ultimate experience where they remove those age spots AND make your face rejuvenated again. The treatment combines the PhotoFractional IPL/Piqo4 + ReSurFX.
