Do It Now: Ideal Winter Treatment #2

The Cellulaze laser treatment is a proven method for reducing cellulite in all areas of your body. With just one treatment, you’ll notice a decrease in the dimpling and rippling of your skin, a condition that so many men and women try to hide.


After the laser procedure, the cellulite in your body will continue to diminish for 3 to 12 months, so by summer, you’ll be well on your way to smoother skin on your hips, thighs, abdomen, buttocks and arms. Get rid of lumpy pockets of fat and “cottage cheese” depressions. You’ll also notice more elastic and supple skin.


Cellulaze targets the cellulite right where it lives, under the skin. Unlike temporary procedures or products that treat the appearance of cellulite, the Cellulaze laser directly attacks fat deposits for long-lasting results.


So, there is no time like the present, particularly when it comes to Cellulaze. Call my office today to schedule a complimentary consultation and learn more about my Spring Ahead plan for staying ahead and staying beautiful.

Do It Now: Ideal Winter Treatment #1

Before it’s swimsuit time, say good bye to waxing, shaving and plucking, once and for all. Laser Hair Removal is a safe and fast alternative to the discomfort and inconvenience of temporary methods, and it lasts.


You won’t want to be too tan before the treatment, so it makes perfect sense to come in for your first appointment now, while winter is in serious swing. The laser is effective on all areas of the body, including the upper lip, bikini area, underarms, chest, back and legs. And, the effects are progressive, so you’ll see continued improvement–including extra smooth skin–as time goes on.

Being Smart About SmartLipo

If you’re considering the SmartLipo high-definition laser treatment for body shaping and contouring, no doubt you’ve tried other routes for losing weight. You’re not alone. Many people find that efforts to diet and exercise simply don’t do enough, and that feelings of insecurity and low self-esteem persist.


With age, metabolisms typically slow down or hormones decline. If you are encountering this sort of frustration, a body sculpting treatment might be an effective option. Women, who store more fat than men do, find it particularly hard to lose weight as they age, though men are great candidates for the procedure, too.


Before you decide, it’s important to assess your individual situation. Everyone has a different body and different psyche. This is a personal decision that you, and only you, should make. Here’s a way to begin thinking about body contouring…ask yourself the following questions and see how many you can answer with a “yes.”


  1. Do you watch your portion size, eating small amounts more frequently?
  2. Do you eat breakfast?
  3. Do you graze instead of eating three large meals a day?
  4. Do you avoid eating late at night?
  5. Do you avoid refined grains such as white bread and crackers?
  6. Do you avoid hidden sugars and fats?
  7. Do you avoid processed foods that contain MSG, sodium nitrate and other food additives?
  8. Do you incorporate weight training into your cardio workouts?
  9. Do you do resistance exercises to build muscle?
  10. Do you mix up the types of workouts that you do?
  11. Are you sleeping from 6 to 8 hours a day?


If you’ve answered “yes” to all or most of these questions, you are doing everything right. So that is great news. But if you are still having trouble losing weight, and you do not have an underlying medical condition that is causing it, you might want to consider SmartLipo as a solution.


It’s a minimally invasive method for removing unwanted fat and sculpting targeted areas of the body. The laser treats localized pockets of fat, melting fat cells and suctioning them away. The result: optimal fat removal, tighter skin and a new shape. SmartLipo can be used on many areas of the body, including the waist, upper and lower abdominal areas, legs, back and even neck.

Less Lip, Please

Like fashion, there are trends in our practice, too. For a time years ago, people wanted the puffiest lip possible, and many of them got what they wanted, even if the results were unnatural and overdone. These days, subtlety is everything, and the lips are a case in point.


Many of you, when you come to my office, are concerned that your treatments will be obvious. One of the biggest giveaways is the lip that is too full for the face.


My guiding principle has always been “less is more.” Much more. When it comes to restoring lips to their youthful state, this approach is essential. My method has three parts: Define, shape and add volume.


Lips tend to thin out and lose fat as we get older. To give them the appearance that they once had, or to plump lips that are naturally thin, I use dermal fillers in small specific ways to create subtle changes that provide maximum visual impact. The secret is balance. If any part of the lips is too fat or too thin, your entire face will look strange.


First, I define the edge between the top lip and the skin above it, beneath your nose. Then, to reshape and plump the upper lip, I make tiny injections in key spots. The upper lip should have variation across the lower border and a bow across the top.


For the lower lip, which typically has a uniform shape all the way across and a little extra volume in the middle, I look at all the angles. From the side, the lip shouldn’t extend out too far or appear puffy. From the front, there should be a touch of extra height.


A variety of lip injection options are available to you, and the results should last from several months to a year, depending on the type of filler that we use. We like to use the hyaluronic acid fillers Restylane, Restylane RefyneRestylane SilkBelotero Balance,Volbella and Juvederm.


The injections take only a few minutes, and you should be able to go back to your normal activities right after the procedure.
