Six Secrets Of Fall and Holiday Beauty

It's hard to believe that fall and the holiday season are now just weeks away, even though we are still enjoying the last days of summer. Whether your plans include parties or quiet times with your family, here are six breakthrough treatments to help you look your best for fall, the holidays and beyond. All are simple, safe, effective and give completely natural looking results with no down time.

Ulthera Non-Surgical Face, Neck and Body Lifting

Ultherapy is a laser-type ultrasound treatment that precisely targets the muscles and deep tissue in your face, neck, chest, arms, buttocks, thighs, knees and other areas. Ultherapy lifts and tighten these areas in a similar way to surgery, but with absolutely no scarring or down time.

Body Conturing With Exilis Ultra Skin Tightening and Fat-Melting Laser

Exilis Ultra is a unique laser that combines radiofrequency and ultrasound energies. It is a new advance on the Exilis Elite laser that gives even better and faster results. Exilis Ultra treatment safely melts fat and tightens skin on your chin, abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, arms and other areas with absolutely no pain or recovery time. It also provides excellent brow and cheek lifting, and even improvement of scars and stretch marks.

Exilis Ultra has undergone rigorous scientific studies that conclusively show its effects in specifically targeting and destroying unwanted fat cells and stimulating your skin to produce new collagen and elastic tissue. Your skin is noticeably firmer and more glowing after treatment.

Fraxel, eMatrix, CO2RE and eTwo Sublative Lasers

The newest lasers for wrinkles, pores, scars, and other skin blemishes offer the best results with the least recovery time. They deliver laser energy very efficiently to the areas of your skin where it is needed to give the fastest and best results. These lasers can be used alone or combined with Syneron Triniti or eTwo total facial rejuvenation, which removes wrinkles and fades sun spots and spider veins all in the same session, with little or no down time.

Three separate lasers are used in the Triniti system to achieve this the Elos SRA, the eMatrix, and the Refirme. Results are seen immediately and continue to improve over the ensuing weeks and months. Treatment can be completely individualized for your needs and goals.

Non-Surgical Face Lifting

The truth behind the clich is that your doctor needs to be able to analyze your whole face in three dimensions and have a deep understanding of facial anatomy to really use fillers and Botox in the best, safest and most natural way. With advanced, European-style techniques, your face can be lifted and recontoured non-surgically with natural fillers like Voluma, Volift, Volbella, Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero, and Sculptra. There are no scars, little or no down time and a completely natural-looking result.

Blunt cannulas are a revolutionary new European technique of injecting fillers that can eliminate bruising and discomfort. Non-surgical face lifting is an advanced technique that goes far beyond mere wrinkle filling, and it should only be performed by an expert. It removes under-eye hollows and bags and restores youthful fullness and definition to your cheeks, lips and jawline.

When advanced techniques are used, fillers correct the true cause of aging changes, and can even help to reverse these changes by stimulating the formation of new collagen in your skin. Botox, Dysport or Xeomin can be added to relax overactive muscles and smooth forehead wrinkles, crow's feet, lines around your mouth, and neck wrinkles. Expert treatment can take decades off your face, while looking completely natural with no “frozen” appearance.

Non-Surgical Body Contouring

Kim Kardashian and Omarosa from The Apprentice are just two of many celebrities who've perfected their curves with non-invasive body contouring lasers to reduce thigh and abdomen circumference and smooth cellulite.

These treatments can be combined with LipoLite laser lipolysis to dissolve unwanted fat in your abdomen, thighs, arms, chin and other areas. Kybella is a new injectable treatment for double chin (submental fullness) that is now offered by a select group of experts in the U.S.

Laser Hair Removal

For smooth, holiday-perfect skin, try the new Gentle YAG laser, which safely and quickly removes hair of all colors, even light colored hairs, from all skin types. Treatment is painless and there is no need even for numbing cream.

For the best treatment, trust your face and body to a doctor whose specialty is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties as having the correct qualifications and experience to perform cosmetic procedures. These “Core Four” specialties are dermatology, plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery and facial plastic surgery.
