Does This Make Me Look Fat
Six little words that sail from dressing rooms the world over, this question is practically a mantra for the body conscious. Regardless of your shape, fitness level or weight, you may have worried that you don’t look as thin or as attractive as you possibly could. And if the worry makes you feel bad, you want to do something about it.
This is where we come in. Changing the way you look at your body–which could mean embracing what you don’t like, tweaking what you don’t like or changing dramatically what you don’t like–is what we help you to do.
So, if your fall and winter diet and exercise regimen hasn’t produced the results that you want on the beach in a couple of months, we offer a few ways to help you like what you see in the mirror. Our battery of body contouring treatments include SmartLipo Triplex, Exilis Ultra 360 and Thermage CPT.
SmartLipo Triplex is a minimally invasive method for removing unwanted fat and sculpting targeted areas of the body. It’s a laser treatment that virtually melts fat cells and suctions them away. Exilis Ultra 360 firms and tones loose and sagging skin and reshapes and melts stubborn fatty deposits anywhere on your face and body. Popular areas treated with Exilis include the face, jowls, neck, chest, back, “love handles,” “bra fat,” abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks and knees. Finally, Thermage CPT is a thermal lift that tightens loose skin on the eyelids, under-eye areas, abdomen, arms, legs and even your sagging buttocks. It is the most effective lift treatment for a multitude of concerns, yielding dramatic results without incisions and recuperation.

Are You Thinking About SmartLipo?
Not a day goes by at the office without my hearing that losing weight has become so difficult, despite your efforts to diet and exercise. So many of you tell me that you have cut back calories and ramped up workout routines but still fight with problem areas. This often happens when metabolisms slow down with age or hormones decline. For those of you encountering such frustration, a body sculpting treatment might be an effective option. (This is especially true for women, who store more fat than men do, though men are great candidates, too.)
If you’re thinking about body contouring, here are a few good questions to ask yourself as you decide. Count how many you can answer with a “yes.”
- Do you watch your portion size, eating small amounts more frequently?
- Do you make sure to eat breakfast?
- Do you graze instead of eating three large meals a day?
- Do you avoid eating late at night?
- Do you avoid refined grains such as white bread and crackers?
- Do you avoid hidden sugars and fats?
- Do you avoid processed foods that contain MSG, sodium nitrate and other risky food additives?
- Do you include weight training with your cardio workouts?
- Do you do resistance exercises to build muscle?
- Do you mix up the types of workouts that you do?
- 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 the weight retention, you could be a good candidate for SmartLipo TriPlex, a high-definition body sculpting procedure.
SmartLipo TriPlex is a minimally invasive method for removing unwanted fat and sculpting areas of the body that you’d like to change. It’s a laser procedure that treats localized pockets of fat in targeted areas, virtually melting fat cells and suctioning them away. It uses three wavelengths of laser light and yields optimal fat removal, tighter skin and high-definition body sculpting capabilities. SmartLipo can be used on many areas of the body, and is particularly effective on waistlines and abdominal areas. One of the best parts–you can see results immediately.
If you’d like to hear more about the treatment, call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation. We’ll devise a plan just for you.

Body Contouring: A Smart Choice for Winter
With February beginning this week, we are smack in the middle of the winter season. For those of you who are not happy with your body shape, no matter how much you watch what you eat or run at the gym, wintertime could mean one thing: SmartLipo.
If your stomach won’t disappear, no matter what you do, or saddle bags keep you from wearing jeans, or if you have images of bra fat oozing from your bathing suit five months from now, you are a candidate for one of the most effective treatments available today.
SmartLipo TriPlex is a minimally invasive method for contouring your body and removing unwanted fat. This laser treatment virtually melts fat cells and suctions them away, for good. Body contouring is currently among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure, and it provides a sure way to achieve your ideal body shape. Also, results improve over time, your body has months to hone its new slender self, before your summer wardrobe comes out of the back closet.
SmartLipo TriPlex has fewer side effects than traditional liposuction and offers precise high-definition body sculpting that is perfect for waistlines and abdominal areas. With just one treatment, we can target localized pockets of fat, with immediate results. Unlike other methods advertised today, SmartLipo can yield dramatic results.

Most important, SmartLipo can transform the way you see yourself. Call to schedule a complimentary consultation, and I’ll devise an individual plan just for you.
See you soon.
Target the Trouble: SmartLipo is Spot On
When you diet, you lose weight across your entire body. There is no eating regimen that will shrink just the area under your bra strap or only that annoying spot above your knees. But SmartLipo Triplex has proven to do just that.
This laser procedure provides excellent results for removing fat from localized pockets that are resistant to ordinary dieting and exercise. Particularly now, as bathing suit weather arrives, Smart Lipo can minimize the little spots that make you feel self-conscious on the beach and in summer clothing–the love handles, tummy, inner and outer thighs and male breasts. Also, as the laser works, it tightens and firms the skin on these areas, reducing the sagging that often occurs with traditional liposuction. Of course, SmartLipo tackles larger areas, too, with great results, including the upper and lower abdomen, hips, and arms.
You are an ideal candidate if you are in good health, with normal body weight, an active lifestyle and realistic goals and expectations. And don’t worry, the recovery time is quick. You can return to most activities within 24 hours. Results are seen soon after your procedure, as the treated area will appear tighter, compact and smaller. Your skin and surrounding area will continue to remodel and adjust to the body contour as time progresses.
Call our office today to schedule a complimentary consultation. We will tailor a specific treatment plan just for you.

It’s Showtime for Skin
Though it has taken some time this year, the weather is finally warming and spring wardrobes are about to make their debuts. Less clothing, we all know, means more skin. The parts of your body that have been hibernating all fall and winter are ready to emerge, and now is the time to help them look their best.
Here’s a quick look at what you’ll soon be wearing…and what we can do now to get those hidden spots in shape:
Short sleeves: This means arms and elbows. To reduce fat, tighten and contour these areas, SmartLipo Triplex, Exilis Elite and Thermage CPT are effective treatments that can be done now, in the spring. Whether it’s your tricep that appears to be drooping, the spot above your elbow that looks floppy, or the skin in the crease that looks crepey, these treatments help minimize unwanted fat and folds.
Shorts: In the light of day, you knees, ankles and legs may not look the way you want them to. SmartLipo is the quickest way to dramatically reduce fat in these areas, specifically, above and around the knee and in the inner and outer thighs. Also, Exilis Elite gives us maximum power with total control. We can safely and effectively deliver the right amount of thermal energy in order to tighten, firm and tone loose and sagging skin and reshape and melt stubborn fatty deposits.
Skimpy tops: No more hiding under loose-fitting sweaters. The season’s tiny tops will do nothing to camouflage bra and abdomen fat. Consider treatments with Exilis Elite or Thermage CPT to help reduce and tighten these trouble spots. Also, Fraxel Dual is highly effective for helping to minimize wrinkles and hyperpigmentation and improve skin tone and texture.
As always, remember to use plenty of sunscreen on your face and body, now that the summer rays are on their way.
Call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation, and we can talk about ways to take you from spring to summer, beautifully.

A minimally invasive method for contouring your body and removing unwanted fat, this laser treatment virtually melts fat cells and suctions them away, for good. Body contouring is currently the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure, and it provides a sure way to achieve your ideal body shape.

No More Dimples and Bumps–Bear Your Skin with Confidence
With a month or so left of bathing suit weather, you have plenty of time to make a change and enjoy its benefits. If you’ve mastered the strategic art of covering up certain body parts on the beach, now is the moment to toss the towels, wraps and shorts, ease up on yourself and have some fun. With a little help from us, of course.
If you are self-conscious about patches of cellulite on your abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs or arms, come talk with us about the Cellulaze Laser, a breakthrough treatment that eliminates cellulite by attacking it where it begins, under the skin.
Here’s how it works: Cellulaze specifically targets the subdermal layer of skin where the root causes of the cellulite occur. We insert a very narrow tube under your skin. About the size of the tip of a pen, this tube, or cannula, directs controlled thermal energy to the area that you want treated. The proprietary ThermaGuide and SmartSense intelligent energy delivery system ensures safe, effective and uniform laser controls. The heat from the laser diminishes the lumpy pockets of fat, releases the areas of skin depression that form dimples and increases your skin’s elasticity and thickness.
The Cellulaze treatment can be performed under local anesthesia, and will take from one to two hours, depending on the size of the areas to be treated. Afterwards, you may feel a mild ache, similar to what you’d feel after a good physical workout.
The laser provides long-lasting smooth and beautiful skin.
Come visit us this week for a complimentary consultation.

It’s Summer…So Get Your Curves Back and Show Some Skin
Many times, no matter what we do, our bodies don’t look exactly the way we’d like them to. We run on the beach, crunch our abdomens and eat nothing but strawberries. Still, we don’t have the shape we really want. Body contouring, which is currently among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, can give you the silhouette that diet and exercise have failed to provide.
We offer several options:
First, you can consider Exilis Elite, the newest FDA approved non-invasive treatment for body shaping and skin tightening. The laser uses monopolar RF (radio frequency) to deliver controlled heat approximately one to three centimeters under the skin. We have used Exilis to tighten skin and decrease inches in many problem areas, including the neck/jowls, arms, bra strap area, abdomen, male chest, thighs and knees. You’ll experience no pain, down time or limitations.
Next, you can choose Thermage CPT, a nonsurgical facelift that will actually transform skin all over your body. The Thermage CPT thermal lift will tighten loose skin on the eyelids, under-eye areas, abdomen, arms, legs and even your sagging buttocks. Thermage CPT, the most effective lift treatment for a multitude of concerns, yields dramatic results without incisions and recuperation.
Finally, there is Smart Lipo Triplex, a minimally invasive method for removing unwanted fat and sculpting areas of the body that you’d like to change . A laser treatment that virtually melts fat cells and suctions them away, the TriPlex technology is updated from the original SmartLipo system in that it uses three wavelengths of laser light and yields better fat removal, tighter skin and high-definition body sculpting capabilities.
It’s never too late to look your very best, so come talk with us about how we can help.
See you soon.
The Beach Beckons…Make a Splash with Exilis Elite
It’s not too late to look your best on the beach this summer. With the quick and easy Exilis Elite, we can tighten skin, sculpt your shape and reduce fat–virtually anywhere–without incisions, anesthesia or downtime.
Here’s how we do it: The nonsurgical Exilis Elite laser technology allows us to deliver just the right amount of thermal energy in just the right places. It is a precise method for firming skin and melting fat in your face, jowls, neck, chest, back, waist, abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks and knees.
For tightening the skin, we attack the dermal layer of your skin, stimulating the collagen that decreases as we age. For minimizing fat, we target the fat deposits located more deeply under the skin.
Exilis Elite is virtually pain-free, so you don’t need numbing of any kind or anesthesia. Most important, you can resume your normal activities immediately. We recommend a series of quick treatments for the best results, and will tailor a plan specifically for you. Most patients see results right away and report steady improvement during the following three months.

Love Your Body with Speedy Summer Fixes
