Body shaping changes the size, profile and parameters of your anatomy, refining and sculpting areas that fail to respond to diet and exercise. My philosophy is to look at your body as a whole, not as a sum of parts, to create a natural and balanced silhouette that suits your frame. In our fully accredited facility, I utilize many state-of-the-art methods for doing this, including Smartlipo TriPlex, Exilis, Thermage CPT and Cellulaze.
What Will Body Sculpting Do For You?
- tighten loose skin after dramatic weight loss
- restore a pre-pregnancy body after childbirth
- tighten up loose saggy skin and remove excess fat pockets
- eliminate cellulite and the “dimples” it causes
- give you a trim, firm and contoured body
- boost self-confidence and esteem
When Is the Best Time for Body Sculpting?
Before you have any body shaping procedure, it’s important that you are in good general health and are at a stable weight for at least three months. You may choose to have treatments on multiple body areas, and these may be done at the same time or at different times, depending upon your individual plan.
Here are some of the procedures that we perform in our fully accredited facility:
Smartlipo TriPlex is less invasive and more precise than traditional liposuction. It removes unwanted fat from specific body areas that have resisted even the strictest diets and toughest exercise regimens. The process actually melts fat, stimulates skin tightening and encourages collagen renewal, using three wavelengths of light and a tiny cannula the size of a small ballpoint pen tip. Smartlipo is particularly effective on the abdomen, neck, jawline, inner arms, male breasts, love handles, bra fat (overhang), inner/outer thighs, inner knees, chin, hips, buttocks, pubic mound and back of neck.
Exilis offers the newest advances in nonsurgical skin tightening to reduce unwanted inches and to lift and contour sagging skin anywhere on your body.
Thermage CPT is a nonsurgical facelift that will transform skin all over your body. The thermal lift will tighten loose skin on the eyelids, under-eye areas, abdomen, arms, legs and buttocks. Thermage CPT, the most effective lift treatment for a multitude of concerns, yields dramatic results without incisions and recuperation.
Cellulaze melts excess fat under the skin and removes the fibrous bands that pull skin into a dimple. It is a minimally invasive way of decreasing the appearance of cellulite in the areas where it typically crops up–the buttocks, hips, thighs, arms and abdomen. Cellulaze also stimulates collagen production, which thickens your skin.
As the summer approaches, I look forward to helping you devise a personalized treatment plan for reshaping and contouring your skin. I know that you will love feeling younger, healthier and more vibrant. Call our office to schedule a consultation and ask about our special Mother’s Day offers, too.
Many of you come into my office feeling bad about your cheeks. You tell me that they just don’t look the way they did when you were younger. That can certainly happen. With aging, the natural curve of your cheek starts to flatten, causing your skin to sag and your profile to lose definition. The shape of your cheeks has a huge impact on the look of your entire face. So, if you’re not happy with them, you may not feel so terrific in general.
Historically, aging cheeks were corrected with surgery that tightened the overlying skin and lifted the deeper soft tissues. Now, Voluma XC, an injectable filler, can produce the same natural youthful result, providing a lift free of incisions, anesthesia and recuperation time.
Juvederm Voluma XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler that instantly adds natural-looking volume to the cheeks. Derived from a naturally occurring complex sugar, it is injected under the skin with a small needle. Studies have shown that results may last as long as two years after treatment. Voluma XC has been available in Europe since 2005 and is used in 72 countries nationwide. The next time you come in, be sure to ask me about how it might work for you.
Meantime, I’d like to wish you an early Happy Mother’s Day–it is the perfect holiday for looking and feeling your very best, or for treating Mom. Don’t forget to call the office and ask about our Mother’s Day specials.
Until next week…
In keeping with our mission of offering you the latest FDA-approved cosmetic procedures, we are proud to be one of the first practices in the area to provide Restylane Silk for your upper lip lines and mouth area.
You may have noticed that your lips have thinned or lost their shape, or that vertical lines have appeared above them. Restylane Silk, because it consists of extra small and smooth particles, can yield results that are natural looking, fast acting and long lasting. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane Silk acts like the hyaluronic acid that your body already produces on its own. Most important, my patients absolutely love the results.
Also, I’d like to thank those of you who attended our Beauty For Life seminar this past weekend and look forward to seeing many of you in the office this week. And, I’d like to wish you an early Happy Mother’s Day–it is the perfect holiday for looking and feeling your very best, or for treating Mom. Be sure to call our offices and ask about our Mother’s Day specials.
…particularly when you have Beauty for Life.
More than treating your face and body, we treat your mindset. As people age, they sometimes believe that they don’t–and can’t–look as beautiful as they did when they were younger. I don’t subscribe to this way of thinking. I believe that you can turn heads at any age and when you do, nothing feels better.
So, join me this coming Saturday for my Beauty for Life seminar and I will share with you how all of this happens–how we help you choose the treatments that will enhance your appearance, what your options entail, and how you will look afterwards. You’ll hear about our practice and our procedures, meet former and current patients, see live demonstrations of the latest cosmetic procedures and even view computer images of yourself, before and after potential treatment.
Also, we’ll provide a complimentary continental breakfast, special offers and free gifts for attendees only. PLUS…There will be drawings to win FREE treatments.
