Six Secrets Of Skin Health and Beauty

For Fall and the Holidays

It’s hard to believe that fall and the holiday season are now just weeks away, even though we’re still enjoying summer. Whether our plans include social events or quiet times with our friends and families, here are six breakthroughs to help you look and feel your healthiest for fall, the holidays and beyond. All are simple, safe, effective and give completely natural looking results with no down time.

The key to achieving the best results is to trust your face and body to a doctor who is board certified in a specialty that 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.

Ultherapy Non-Surgical Face, Neck and Body Lifting

Ultherapy, and other variants like Sofwave, is a sophisticated, laser-type ultrasound treatment that precisely tightens the muscles and skin in your face, neck, chest, arms, buttocks, thighs, knees and other areas. Ultherapy stimulates formation of new collagen and elastin to lift and tighten sagging areas in a similar way to surgery, but with absolutely no scarring or down time.

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

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

Exilis Ultra has undergone rigorous scientific studies that 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 amazing results with little or no down time. They deliver laser energy very efficiently to rapidly smooth and tighten skin. These lasers can be used alone or combined with Syneron Triniti or eTwo total facial rejuvenation, to remove wrinkles and fade sun spots and spider veins all in the same session, with little or no down time.

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

Non-Surgical Face Lifting

The truth behind the cliché of liquid or non-surgical facelifting is that your doctor must have the qualifications and knowledge to analyze your whole face in 3D 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 contoured non-surgically with natural fillers like Voluma, Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Belotero, the new RHA fillers, and Sculptra. There are no scars, no down time and a beautifully natural rejuvenation.

If you’re unsure about fillers, chances are you’ve seen bad work which is all too common. Qualifications matter, and a real expert uses fillers properly to deliver stunningly natural results that make you look as if you’re aging backwards. No duck lips, overfilled cheeks or Spock eyebrows!

Blunt cannulas are a revolutionary new European technique that can eliminate bruising and discomfort from fillers. True 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, restores youthful fullness and definition to your cheeks, lips and jawline, and can even improve a double chin.

When advanced techniques are used, fillers correct the true cause of aging changes, and can even reverse aging by stimulating the formation of new collagen and elastin in your skin. Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Jeuveau can be added to rebalance 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 none of the “frozen” appearance we associate with badly performed Botox.

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. Omarosa has tweeted about her treatments in our clinic.

These treatments can be combined with LipoLite laser lipo to dissolve unwanted fat in your abdomen, thighs, arms, chin and other areas. Kybella is a new injectable treatment for double chin (submental fullness) for which a select group of experts in the U.S have served as trainers.

Hair Laser

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

Despite the uncertainties we’ve faced in the past couple of years, we can all make a positive decision to take charge of our lives. We can choose to make meaningful changes that uplift us and re-connect our inner and outer personas – whether this is adoption of a more healthy lifestyle, or a few non-surgical, no-downtime improvements.
