Recapture Your Radiance
As we get older, our bodies don’t always resemble how we feel inside. Our unforgettable experiences leave after-effects on our skin. Smile lines and frown lines often form. The glow of youth can fade into dullness and our faces lose volume due to decreased production of fibers such as collagen. Fortunately, there are now minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments available that can refresh your appearance and help regain your youthful effervescence.

About Aesthetic Treatments in Los Gatos
In fine art, craquelure is a term that refers to the pattern of fine cracks in the varnish or enamel of a painting. In the art world, craquelure helps differentiate an original work of art from a forgery, which makes it a desirable quality. For individuals, craquelure might indicate our age, but it’s not always desirable. Dr. Castillo’s artistic medium is the human body.
He seeks to help his patients refine their aesthetics to bring their vision of beauty into reality.
Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Treatments
Successful cosmetic enhancements and rejuvenation pair a patient’s goals with the appropriate aesthetic technique. As with any great artist, Dr. Castillo selects the best tool for each task. He can employ several minimally invasive aesthetic techniques to help you achieve your goals. The most effective, minimally invasive methods include the latest laser and light technology and FDA-approved injectables that include dermal fillers and neuromodulators. Depending on the condition a patient wants to treat and their aesthetic aspirations, Dr. Castillo will devise a custom treatment plan that employs one or several of the enhancement techniques explained below.
The most obvious benefit to aesthetic procedures is that they enhance your appearance and help you achieve the physical look that you desire. This includes reversing the tides of time and rejuvenating your skin and face to restore that youthful radiance. It also means recontouring your body to tighten up loose skin or correct skin irregularities. Besides the physical benefits, there are also concomitant psychological benefits. You can erase insecurities that derive from physical conditions and boost your self-confidence as you align your inner beauty with your outer image. Cosmetic enhancements can also help you maintain a healthy lifestyle by offering motivation to continue looking and feeling your best.
Candidates for aesthetic treatments span an enormous range of patients of all ages, genders, and lifestyles. Whether you are an athletic participant in your 30s or retired from an office job, you might be a candidate for aesthetic treatments.

As a practitioner passionate about his life calling, he wants every patient to achieve their cosmetic goals and feel better about themselves after the procedure than before the procedure.

Halo Ageless Skin
The world’s first Hybrid Fractional Laser. Halo delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to maintain ageless skin with little downtime. Ablative lasers remove the outermost layer of skin while non-ablative just heat the layers underneath. The Halo can produce ablative-quality results with the decreased downtime of a non-ablative procedure. The Halo stimulates collagen and elastin, improves skin tone and texture, and reduces discoloration and uneven pigmentation. Within just a few days after the treatment, the skin peels, revealing luminous, healthy skin beneath. Gradual improvements are seen over the weeks and months that pass.
So-called “vampire” treatments leverage the power of your own blood (platelet-rich plasma) to rejuvenate the skin. These treatments add facial volume to areas suffering from volume loss and can be used in conjunction with laser or micro-needling to enhance recovery, restore collagen, and regain a youthful appearance. The customizable nature of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) procedures leads to endless combinations with other treatments to form a comprehensive rejuvenation strategy. Dr. Castillo is a member of the Cellular Medicine Society and a licensed provider of vampire treatments. He is a West Coast trainer for providers seeking certification in Vampire therapies including Vampire Facial, Vampire Facelift, Vampire Breast Lift, Vampire Labial Augmentation, O-Shot, and P-Shot.
Sciton’s BroadBand Light (BBL)
Sciton’s BBL is cutting-edge technology that treats acne and other skin conditions using the power of light. BBL is not a laser. Lasers use a single wavelength. BroadBand Light differs by using a wide spectrum of wavelengths to treat skin conditions. BBL comes with various filters and adapters to treat an impressive range of conditions.
- Pigmented Lesions (freckles, age spots)
- Vascular Lesions (cherry angiomas, rosacea, and more)
- Deeper Lesions / Darker Skin Types
- Hair Removal
This versatile approach allows Dr. Castillo to custom tailor treatments for each patient and maximize the positive benefits. BroadBand Light achieves remarkable results because it doesn’t just improve sun-damaged and aged skin. Research into gene expression has found that BBL restores your skin cells so they actually behave and respond in the same way as young, healthy skin cells. This is as close as it comes to a literal fountain of youth.
Sciton’s versatile BBL platform also houses the power of skin tightening. Utilizing the power of light to induce tighter, more youthful skin, clients truly enjoy the reversal of time. We can perform SkinTyte treatments truly anywhere on the body where skin laxity is a concern. SkinTyte is often paired with a variety of treatments including Forever Young BBL, Body contouring, or our DiVa vaginal rejuvenation procedures to bring the snap back to your skin.
The ProFractional laser is based on Sciton’s venerated Joule system. It offers profound skin rejuvenation with a proven ability to erase scars, smooth texture, and support collagen remodeling. This boost to collagen restores the skin’s underlying support structure and continues to improve the skin for up to a year after treatments. From micro and nano peels to deep resurfacing, the ProFractional laser safely removes fine lines, scars, and deep wrinkles and promotes healthy skin from the inside out with little downtime. The ProFractional laser can treat a diversity of conditions from scars to rejuvenating aged skin.
