Do you have stubborn fat that will not go away despite earnest efforts at diet and exercise? Coolsculpting is an innovative, noninvasive procedure that can eliminate fat cells in a simple office procedure. The science behind CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™, called Cryolipolysis™, was developed by dermatologists at Harvard Medical School. Their research demonstrated that fat cells are naturally more sensitive to the effects of cold. By using advanced tissue cooling technology, CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™ can destroy fat cells through a controlled cooling process leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.
The most common areas treated are the lower abdomen and love handles (aka “muffin top”), but any area of pesky fat can be targeted, such as inner thighs, back fat, and excess breast tissue in men. After a virtually painless procedure, clinical improvement is evident within 2 to 4 months.
Additional treatments can be performed to attain additional fat destruction. After the treatment, normal activities can be resumed immediately– there is no recovery time. Fat reduction with no cutting, no needles, and no recovery? How cool is that? »Visit Website
Ultherapy is a revolutionary treatment that uses ultrasound waves to lift and tighten the skin. The sound waves are very focused and intense energy that penetrates deep into the skin at the same level addressed in surgery. The ultrasound delivered into the skin gently heats the tissue and stimulates the skin to produce collagen—resulting in a lifting and tightening effect on loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. The creation of new collagen also give the skin a more youthful glow. This procedure is used around the eyes to lift the brow, which in turn reduces the excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes and gives a more refreshed appearance. It is also used on the lower face—cheeks, chin, and neck—to provide a lower face and neck lift, resulting in a more defined jawline and a reduction in the skin laxity of the lower face and neck.
The beauty of Ultherapy is that it is a 30 to 60 minute procedure that uses the body’s own subtle healing response to gently, gradually-and reliably-restore memory to the skin and its underlying tissue. Ultherapy requires no special recuperation or preparation and typically only takes one treatment to get a meaningful response. Patients enjoy some initial effect immediately following the procedure, but the ultimate lifting will take 2 – 3 months, as tired collagen is rejuvenated and supplemented with new, stronger collagen.
There isn’t a replacement for the dramatic effects of surgery, but Ultherapy offers a natural, ‘no downtime’ approach to noticeably improving lax skin. »Visit Website
Childbirth and the natural aging process cause changes which may affect feminine wellness. A particularly strenuous vaginal childbirth, multiple births, and the effects of menopause can cause physical changes which can rob women (and their partners) of their sense of well-being and happiness. ThermiVa treatments use radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue to rejuvenate collagen, without discomfort or downtime. »Visit Website
ThermiSmooth® Body is performed by targeting the areas under the skin, providing a temporary reduction of cellulite from eyes to thighs. There are a series of treatments over 6-8 weeks that are gentle, and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage. Gentle heating using temperature controlled radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen remodeling. This procedure uses gentle therapy, and is a non-invasive procedure with no downtime. Results are best seen after a series of 4-6 treatments. »Visit Website
