Get Ready for Spring Break’s Warmer Weather
Winter is a preferred time for certain aesthetic procedures that either heal best with sun avoidance or take time for final results to appear. Treatments done now will give you the confidence to handle warmer weather’s more revealing wardrobes.
Body Laser Treatments
Say bye-bye to stubborn love handles, bat wings, muffin tops, saddlebags and jowls that won’t respond to exercise and diet. Ideal candidates are women and men who are not significantly overweight-but have accumulated fat deposits. The laser delivers energy directly to the fat cells through a tiny laser probe, causing them to rupture and the liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. The laser energy also causes tissue-tightening resulting in a thinner, firmer area.
In the fight against cellulite, creams and lotions are worthless. Diet and exercise also do little to help reduce its unsightly appearance because cellulite is a skin issue, not a fat issue. Cellulaze, the first and only procedure designed to correct the cause of cellulite, is treating a condition once thought to be untreatable.
Cellulaze uses laser energy to release the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin causing unwanted cellulite dimples. By delivering energy directly under the skin, new collagen development is activated that results in firmer, tighter skin in the area treated.
Patients typically see immediate improvement, with continuing results over 3-6 months. The treatment is most effective on patients who are not significantly overweight, but who have mild to moderate cellulite.
CoolSculpting makes use of a breakthrough cooling technology (cyrolipolysis) to freeze areas of unwanted fat. Its popularity has been fueled by its very non-invasive nature. The treatment only freezes the fat –it does not remove it. It takes time for the body to clear the nonviable fat cells so final results take a few months to see. A single treatment reduces the fat in the target area by an average of 23%.
Both CoolSculpting and Smartlipo are innovative fat reduction treatments that address the needs of patients who wish to avoid invasive surgery. The decision to choose between CoolSculpting and SmartLipo depends on the patient’s condition, goals and type / speed of results they expect. Smartlipo is more invasive and requires a bit of downtime; however, more unwanted fat in multiple areas can be permanently removed in one procedure making the single treatment results faster and more extensive.
