Get Lean Upper Arms with CoolSculpting Arms Treatments

Get Lean Upper Arms with CoolSculpting Arms Treatments

People with fat on their arms can feel self-conscious or even embarrassed. This often leads to feeling like you need to cover yourself, even when the weather is nice. And sometimes, eating well and staying hydrated and active just aren’t doing the trick. That’s where CoolSculpting comes in. 

While CoolSculpting stomach fat remains one of the most popular treatment areas, many patients also use CoolSculpting for bat wings. Flabby arms are challenging to slim with diet and exercise alone. But with the help of fat-freezing technology, experienced providers can give you sculpted arms!

How Arm Fat Freezing Delivers Superior Results

Upper arm CoolSculpting works through cryolipolysis, a cooling technique that reduces stubborn fat without surgery. Back in 2017, Zeltiq, the maker of CoolSculpting, introduced the CoolPetite applicator. This handheld device was made specifically for treating hard-to-reach fat bulges, meaning it’s perfect for treating fat that tends to accumulate in the upper arms.

Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells in a targeted area. The controlled cooling temperatures penetrate the skin and target fat cells, causing the cell membrane to become brittle. As a result, the membrane ruptures, and it cannot do its job. This event triggers the body’s immune response. 

Several weeks after treatment, the body naturally gathers the dead cells and disposes of them. Best of all, CoolSculpting provides long-term results for individuals treated, which you can see in CoolSculpting before and after images. Once the dead cells are removed, they can never return or regrow. It’s part of what makes this technology so incredible!

What Causes Fat Arms?

At Dermatology Laser Center, patients often ask specific questions about why their arms carry excess fat and why it’s so hard to get rid of. This is fair because upper arm fat is a notorious problem for men and women. 

Genetics, age, and hormones play a significant role in accumulating fat cells in the upper arms. Due to the biology of these specific fat deposits, they tend to resist diet and exercise, making them nearly impossible to lose. 

Before CoolSculpting, individuals struggling with “bat wings” didn’t really have many fat-freezing options. There was liposuction, an invasive surgery with many downfalls. But now, you can utilize non-invasive arm CoolSculpting to reduce upper arm fat.

Is Arm Fat Freezing Right for Me?

Unfortunately, CoolSculpting is not for every person. There is such a thing as the perfect fat-freezing candidate. The ideal candidate is a healthy, active adult struggling with fat cells resistant to diet and exercise efforts. In addition, the candidate should not be obese or severely overweight. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss program and should never be used to treat obesity. 

During your complimentary consultation, an expert technician evaluates your upper arms, discusses your goals and expectations, and determines if CoolSculpting suits you. If it is, our staff create a plan to fit your needs and budget.

What to Expect When You Try Arm CoolSculpting

The first step in this process is to schedule a consultation. You need to speak with a provider about your expectations and medical history, and they will need to assess your upper arm fat. If everything is clear to move forward, you’ll schedule your first session (if you’re doing multiple sessions). 

Your Arm CoolSculpting Session

The treatment requires no anesthesia; your provider will begin by applying a gel pad and the CoolSculpting applicator to the proper location. The upper arm applicator follows the curve of the arm for maximum sculpting. 

One session typically lasts 35 minutes, where you may feel slight pulling, tingling, intense cold, and aching. Once complete, your provider will massage the area to warm it up and help the body absorb frozen cells. After that, you’re free to go about your day! Most patients find it easy to get back to their regular routine, although we do recommend some extra rest to let your body adjust.

CoolSculpting Arms Cost

CoolSculpting for arms is priced per person because treatments are tailored to your unique goals. Some factors influencing CoolSculpting cost include the applicator needed, the number of cooling cycles, and any discounts or specials available. Depending on your needs, it can range from several hundred to a few thousand dollars. 

To get your precise price, schedule a complimentary consultation. During your visit, a specialist creates the perfect treatment plan that fits your budget and simultaneously achieves your aesthetic body goals.

Upper Arm CoolSculpting Safety

CoolSculpting has a high safety profile. A 2017 study backed the safety and efficacy of CoolSculpting arm treatment. In this study, “Cryolipolysis for Reduction of Arm Fat,” 30 female subjects’ treated arms were showcased. The researchers found that CoolSculpting arms resulted in significant fat reduction

Moreover, 85% of participants demonstrated visible reductions in upper arm fat. This led researchers to conclude that “these data suggest that [CoolSculpting arms] provides rapid, safe, and effective arm treatment.”  It is important to note that CoolSculpting is skill-sensitive. The more skilled the person performing the treatment, the more impressive the fat reduction.

Upper Arm CoolSculpting Results

As mentioned above, once the fat cell ruptures, it triggers an immune response that collects the dead cells and disposes of them through the lymphatic system as waste. This process takes several weeks after treatment. 

After eight to 12 weeks, individuals see a more dramatic fat reduction, revealing a slim, sculpted appearance. Results continue to build on themselves, especially if you receive more than one arm CoolSculpting session. 

Two or three treatments may be the key to reaching your goals. We recommend spacing each session at least one month apart to give the body time to adjust. The body continues to flush out dead fat cells for up to six months after your final session.

Can Arm Fat Return After CoolSculpting?

Since the eliminated fat cells can’t come back, you can expect results to remain for the long term. But it’s important to note that not all fat cells in the upper arms will be frozen. 

There will still be fat cells remaining to give you natural yet transformative results. The existing fat cells can expand, so you should still follow a healthy diet and exercise routine. Combining an active lifestyle with advanced technology brings the best possible results!

CoolSculpting Arm Fat Aftercare

After a CoolSculpting session, you may feel stinging, itching, and skin sensitivity. The skin will be tender during this time, so give yourself some time to rest. 

We recommend doing the following for several days to minimize post-treatment side effects:

  • Stay away from sugary foods and drinks
  • Avoid drinking caffeine 
  • Pause alcohol and nicotine consumption 
  • Massage the area 
  • Take a pain medication
  • Apply warm compresses
  • Gently exercise and stretch

Be sure to find a trustworthy provider to guide you through the journey, from your initial consultation to offering the best CoolSculpting aftercare tips. It’s normal to experience temporary numbness, redness, and swelling. Some patients see bruising. We are here to make sure you’re comfortable and confident moving through this journey!

Choosing the Right CoolSculpting Provider

Equipped with the latest CoolSculpting applicators, the Dermatology Laser Center and Medispa team can reduce any bulge that clings to the body. Reduce double chins and neck fat starting at the top half. At the bottom, CoolSculpt tackles knee fat. The treatment areas in between include stomach fat, love handles, thighs, back, armpit, upper arm, and more.

The best way to determine if CoolSculpting can reduce stubborn fat is to schedule a complimentary consultation. This will give you the chance to ask questions, voice your concerns, and decide whether this is the right treatment and med spa for you. Under the right care, this is a highly effective solution for even the most difficult fat pockets. That’s why patients choose Dermatology Laser Center & Medispa.

Itchy Veins? How Sciton mJOULE Treats Vascular Concerns

Itchy Veins? How Sciton mJOULE Treats Vascular Concerns

It’s hard to feel like your best self every day when you’re struggling with skin concerns. Port wine stains, rosacea, and spider veins are a few of the common vascular problems patients deal with.

Maybe you’re spending more time than you’d like in the mornings covering little vessels with makeup. You might be hiding your favorite outfits in the back of the closet because the spider veins on your legs feel embarrassing.

The issue is that so many providers don’t offer a solution that actually works for these specific concerns. Enter the Sciton mJOULE vascular platform – the most effective laser treatment that clears vessels on the face and body without causing skin damage. Don’t let vascular concerns take away from living your life!

The Power of Sciton’s mJOULE Vascular Platform

Sciton’s mJOULE vascular platform is configurable with different components to target specific concerns for patients. It’s a revolutionary advancement in technology to address vascular skin concerns.

Two of the most advanced components for vascular treatments are ClearV and ClearSilk, lasers that target skin concerns without harming the surrounding skin. The best part is that no matter which you choose, results continue to improve with time, and patients can boost their improvements with routine treatments.

Does the mJOULE Platform Treat all Skin Types?

Yes! Many patients with deeper skin tones wonder whether laser treatment will be safe and work, which is a valid concern. Sciton’s mJOULE platform for vascular concerns can treat all skin types. The most important thing is finding a reputable provider with the knowledge to apply mJOULE laser treatments like ClearSilk and ClearV properly for different skin types.

ClearV is the Most Potent Laser Therapy for Vascular Treatments

Unlike other solutions, ClearV has technology that integrates many functionalities into one handpiece. Not only does it offer Subsurface Vein Illumination (SVI), but it treats more spot sizes in one session, and offers integrated cooling for a more comfortable and effective experience. 

ClearV laser therapy treats several concerns on the face and body, including: 

  • Spider veins
  • Visible and hidden vessels
  • Rosacea
  • Warts
  • Acne 
  • Facial, leg, and body veins
  • Port wine stains
  • Broken capillaries
  • Facial telangiectasias

As a solution that treats all Fitzpatrick skin types, ClearVcan be used all year long, even on sun damaged skin. Plus, patients can choose to combine ClearV with other Sciton treatments, such as ClearSilk, BBL HERO, and MOXI laser for total rejuvenation.

Laser Therapy for Spider Veins on Face & Body

One of the most common issues that people deal with are spider veins – dense clusters of red or bluish blood vessels that can be seen through the skin. 

Forming web-like patterns, spider veins aren’t a medical issue, but they can make people feel self-conscious. Sometimes spider veins can itch or cause discomfort, which is another reason so many people like to treat them. 

While they often appear on the legs, spider veins can appear on the face. Either way, the mJOULE is groundbreaking in its ability to address spider veins and vascular lesions. The blood cells in the veins absorb the laser energy, shrinking with time until they eventually dissolve and you’re left with clear skin.

ClearV: What to Expect During Treatment

One ClearV laser treatment session generally takes 5-10 minutes. For larger treatment areas, a session can take up to 30 minutes. The most popular treatment areas are the legs and face.

There is no anesthesia required, the only steps you might take before treatment are removing any makeup or moisturizer, and shaving the area if necessary. 

During your appointment, your eyes will have protection via safety shields or glasses. Your provider will pass the ClearV handpiece over the treatment area to deliver precise laser energy. It’s normal to feel warm sensations as the laser works.

How ClearV’s Vein Illumination Provides Better Results

Using an orange light, Clear V’s LED capabilities illuminate unwanted vessels during treatment. This allows providers to precisely locate and target vessels, closing them and preventing their return, for the body to naturally eliminate with time. 

Noticeable results start to show between 4-6 weeks, and patients can expect a reduction in veins after one treatment.

ClearV Aftercare

Since it is a gentle yet effective solution, there is no uncomfortable downtime, but your skin is more susceptible to sunburn and pigmentation change for the first 7 days after treatment. 

There are a few things you should avoid to give yourself the best healing time after ClearV while your skin is still sensitive, including:

  • Applying makeup to the treated area
  • Using heavy lotions, scented creams, or exfoliants
  • Hot water, pools with chemicals, and hot tubs
  • Shaving the treated area
  • Strenuous activity or exercise that causes excessive sweating

In most cases, patients are free to resume normal activities right away. We recommend leaving 4-6 weeks between mJOULE treatments to give the best results.

Revitalizing with ClearSilk’s Lunchtime Facial Laser Treatment

While ClearV is the solution to treating the appearance of veins, ClearSilk can address small vessels in the skin that cause redness. Many patients choose ClearSilk to improve their complexion before a big event, or as a part of their skincare routine to maintain healthy skin.

ClearSilk is a gentler treatment for the face, neck, and décolleté, targeting:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Redness and rosacea
  • Dull skin
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Uneven skin texture

By reducing blushing, fine lines and wrinkles, and addressing acne scars, ClearSilk leaves you with a healthier, more vibrant complexion. Some patients combine their ClearSilk treatment with ClearV or BBL HERO for a complete skin and vascular solution.

ClearSilk Treatable Areas

Even though it’s commonly referred to as a lunchtime facial, ClearSilk’s capabilities extend far beyond the face. Virtually anywhere that needs attention can be treated with ClearSilk, from the arms and legs to the neck, chest, and abdomen. 

Patients can use ClearSilk year-round as a therapeutic treatment that continues to improve with each session.

Your ClearSilk Appointment Expectations

When it comes to better skin clarity and texture, a series of ClearSilk treatments is fast, easy, and highly effective. 

With no anesthesia necessary for a comfortable experience, your ClearSilk provider will glide a handpiece half an inch from the skin of the treatment area for the laser to work its magic. Treatments take 30 minutes or less. There is no downtime, which is why this is known as a lunchtime facial – you’re free to go about your day pain-free.

Depending on your goals and current skin condition, your provider may recommend four to six ClearSilk treatments. It’s best to leave anywhere from two to four weeks between appointments so that the skin has time to improve from the last treatment.

ClearSilk Results & Aftercare

Like ClearV, ClearSilk is a non-ablative resurfacing treatment. That means it’s ideal for addressing skin concerns that age us without the more intense recovery time.

Minor redness and warmth are normal to experience for a few hours after treatment. These feelings indicate that the treatment was performed correctly, and the body is responding appropriately. 

You’ll start to notice a more youthful glow after one session. Results are subtle but visible, and improvements continue to build with subsequent ClearSilk sessions if you choose this as part of your skincare routine. Be sure to protect yourself from the sun (sunscreen, hats, light and comfortable clothing, etc.) to prolong your results.

Emsculpt vs Emsculpt NEO: What’s the Difference?

Emsculpt vs Emsculpt NEO: What’s the Difference?

Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox, and Drew Barrymore all take advantage of the powers of body sculpting. They’ve discovered how transformational the right treatment can be, but that doesn’t mean we need to leave these results for the stars. 

Imagine non-invasive fat shrinking, muscle building, and body shaping that doesn’t require downtime and won’t break the bank. All done within 30-minute, relaxing sessions at a medical spa. You can have it! 

Emsculpt NEO is here and builds on the original Emsculpt machine to become the secret weapon that gives you your dream body. Less fat, more muscle, and curves in all the right places. Let’s compare Emsculpt to Emsculpt NEO so you can make the most informed decision for your body sculpting treatment. 

WHAT IS EMSCULPT?

Emsculpt treatments use HIFEM energy to penetrate muscle tissues and stimulate powerful supramaximal contractions. Emsculpt treats four major areas of the body: the arms, the belly, the buttocks, and the legs.

These contractions are not something you can replicate at the gym. If you were to target your abs, for example, Emsculpt’s technology is comparable to doing 20,000 situps, mountain climbers, etc. 

Similarities Between Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO

Emsculpt NEO is the newer, more advanced version of Emsculpt. Because of this, they share many of the same characteristics, but Emsculpt NEO provides better results. Plus, the improved version even brings another benefit: Skin tightening. 

Emsculpt is similar to Emsculpt NEO in that both:

  • Involve no downtime after treatment
  • Are non-invasive body contouring solutions
  • Burn fat and tone muscles
  • Are useful in speeding recovery time after injury 
  • Have no side effects other than how you’d feel after a hard workout
  • Minimize muscle separation in the abdomen (diastasis recti)
  • Are FDA-approved as effective treatments
  • Require no numbing or anesthesia 
  • Can increase testosterone levels in men 

No matter which treatment you choose, four treatments are often recommended, with two to seven days between sessions. Of course, this is a generalization, as Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO treatments are customized for every patient. Depending on your goals and concerns, you could see optimal results with fewer sessions. A consultation is the easiest way to determine how many sessions you should have, and how much your Emsculpt cost will be. 

How Long Do Emsculpt Results Last?

With both versions, Emsculpt results gradually develop, becoming more noticeable within six weeks after a session. The most dramatic improvements last around six months. 

One important note is that the fat that Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO remove is permanently gone. Sessions destroy and eliminate a percentage of excess fat in the treatment area. That fat will never return. But, there still will be fat in the area, and those fat cells can expand. 

Patients who see the best Emsculpt results are those who maintain an active, healthy lifestyle. Those who do not exercise regularly or eat as well often notice some of the muscle tone diminishing around three or four months after treatment.

Differences Between Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO

Emsculpt NEO uses the same HIFEM energy as the original Emsculpt treatment. However, treatments also incorporate Radio Frequency (RF) energy to melt fat cells. The addition of RF technology significantly enhances the procedure’s fat-reducing effects.

During the convenient 30-minute treatment, an applicator emits both HIFEM and RF energies. Radiofrequency delivers thermal energy to the tissues, warming the muscles and heating fat cells. However, within minutes, the subcutaneous fat cells die.

At the same time, the HIFEM penetrates the muscle tissues, stimulating powerful contractions. These contractions, supramaximal contractions, work muscles more intensely than manual exercise.

Emsculpt vs Emsculpt NEO Muscle Contractions

Emsculpt NEO contractions are equivalent to 24,000 muscle contractions in one treatment area during one session. Emsculpt contractions are equivalent to 20,000. 

Along with more contractions in one session, adding RF energy melts fat cells and substantially enhances Emsculpt NEO’s fat-reducing effects. 

As a result, the body creates more muscle cells and enhances the muscle fibers to adapt to the stress of contractions. Because of its impressive improvements, Emsculpt NEO is one of the most effective non-invasive treatments available in body contouring.

Emsculpt Treatment Areas

Both Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO are effective options for stronger, more defined muscles with fat reduction. But they cannot both treat the same locations on the body. 

Emsculpt offers body contouring for areas like the abs, butt, arms, and calves. Emsculpt NEO comes with applicators that can treat everywhere Emsculpt can and more, including:

Patients with more excess fat, not as close to their ideal weight as they might hope, or with a higher BMI, should consider Emsculpt NEO. It has more muscle-building and fat-removal benefits, plus skin-tightening capabilities to bring dramatic results.

How Much Weight Can You Lose With Emsculpt?

Studies show that, on average, Emsculpt NEO treatments increase muscle by 25% while decreasing fat by 30%. On the other hand, Emsculpt increases muscle mass by up to 16% and removes about 20% of excess fat in an area. 

This means that while you will lose weight with Emsculpt (either version), it’s not meant to be a weight-loss treatment. Emsculpting contours the body, improving curves and toning areas for fat loss and muscle definition.

Is CoolSculpting Better than Emsculpt NEO?

If you’re looking into the different body contouring options, you’re likely comparing Emsculpt NEO and CoolSculpting. It’s only natural since they’re among the most popular sculpting solutions available. 

Your decision may come down to what you need most from a treatment. While CoolSculpting works well to eliminate pockets of unwanted fat, it stops there. Emsculpt NEO minimizes fat while also building muscle and tightening the skin. Those searching for a total rejuvenation treatment will benefit more from Emsculpt NEO.

What Are The Downsides of Emsculpt Neo?

There are little to no side effects or downsides with Emsculpt NEO. It’s common to feel some muscle soreness as if you spent the afternoon working hard at the gym. Some patients experience redness depending on skin tone, but this disappears after a couple of hours.

The only downside to Emsculpt NEO is that it’s not meant for everyone. Candidates should not be pregnant or nursing. There should be no metal implants in the part of the body being treated, and no tattoos on the area.

Finding the Best CoolSculpting Provider in Baltimore, MD

CoolSculpting Near Me: Tips for Finding the Best CoolSculpting Provider in Baltimore

If you’re curious about the transformation that CoolSculpting brings to patients but unsure where to start with finding a provider you can trust, you likely began by searching for treatments near you. But, this type of search brings in a long list of clinics you can visit, which can easily become overwhelming. 

 

Though it’s always tempting to choose based on price alone, when it comes to investing in your body, you want to find a professional with quality equipment and plenty of experience. 

 

With the options available to you, it might seem challenging to find a reputable provider, but it doesn’t need to be. You just need to know what to look for. Follow these tips to find the best CoolSculpting team for you!

Finding a CoolSculpting Provider with Good Results

The best CoolSculpting results come from the best provider. Like any cosmetic treatment, the person performing the procedure is just as important as the treatment itself. Look for client testimonials, and Google reviews, and talk with friends who have tried body contouring.

Look for CoolSculpting Before and After Pictures

CoolSculpting before and after pictures are a good start. They give you the chance to see fat-freezing results on real people. You’ll start to determine whether these are the types of results you want and if they align with your body contouring goals.

Search the Official CoolSculpting Directory

On the official CoolSculpting website, there is a section called ‘Find a Provider’. Using your zip code, the site will generate a list of clinics. 

The results are sorted according to the best price point and reviews, which is a good indication of their experience.

Shop by CoolSculpting Price

What you pay for CoolSculpting mostly depends on the size of the treatment area and how many sessions you choose. As you’re searching for providers, you’ll notice that pricing can range on average anywhere from $2,000-$4,000 when all is said and done. 

The best way to understand your costs is by scheduling a consultation with a provider you’re considering.

Make the Most of Your CoolSculpting Consultation

When discussing fat freezing at a medspa, ask how long the provider has been performing CoolSculpting. Inquire about the training for treatment, and the legitimacy of their equipment to avoid off-brand fat-freezing. 

Expert providers will know who is best suited for CoolSculpting, as only good candidates will receive optimal results. Choose a provider that will give you an honest opinion about your potential results and candidacy. And don’t forget that men can get CoolSculpting, too!

While internet searches and patient testimonials can provide decent information, a consultation provides the best opportunity to speak one-on-one with a treatment provider.

Are You a CoolSculpting Candidate?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary treatment for removing excess fat pockets by using an advanced cooling technology, Cryolipolysis, to reduce stubborn fat cells in problem areas.

During the treatment, a proprietary applicator attaches to the skin of the treatment area. To ensure that you’re getting the most transformational results, though, these applicators need to sit properly, and the technology needs to reach the right area of fat. 

That means you should be an ideal candidate, who already prioritizes exercise and healthy eating. You’re close to your goal weight, but struggling with some areas of the body. Maybe you want a smooth, sculpted stomach, or to get rid of bat wings on your upper arms. If there are a few inches of pinchable fat in the area you want to target, schedule a consultation.

Set Proper CoolSculpting Expectations

The way CoolSculpting works is through applicators – the applicator transmits a calibrated cooling beneath the skin, targeting underlying fat cells. Once exposed to extreme temperatures, the fat cells will become brittle, and their membrane will rupture. After the cell’s membrane ruptures, the cell will die.

The body’s immune system gathers the dead cells and expels them from the body via the lymphatic system. CoolSculpting provides patients with lasting fat reduction because once the fat cells are removed from the body, they can never re-grow or re-expand. Taking the proper CoolSculpting aftercare steps will help to maximize the sculpted results you see for longer.

With that in mind, it’s important to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution. It’s not meant to replace diet and exercise, nor is it meant to help people shed significant weight. CoolSculpting is a fat loss treatment, specifically targeting locations on the body that patients struggle with.

How CoolSculpting Freezes Fat to Reshape Your Body

How CoolSculpting Freezes Fat to Reshape Your Body

What many people call cold sculpting or fat freezing, is the confidence-boosting CoolSculpting treatment. It reduces fat using controlled cooling tech that provides results faster and easier than spending hours with a personal trainer every day. 

CoolSculpting is the #1 non-invasive fat reduction treatment in the world. Millions of men and women opt for it to contour their bodies and shape attractive curves, and for good reason. 

Patients lose 14.6 to 28.5% of their body fat with CoolSculpting each session.

The thing is some individuals see these body contouring results and try to replicate such incredible results at home with DIY CoolSculpting, which is simply not safe. Let’s go through why, and what you can do to ensure your best results.

Understanding the CoolSculpting Process

CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. It is a body-shaping treatment that eliminates portions of unwanted fat cells from the targeted body area. These destroyed cells cannot grow back.

Therefore, this is a long-lasting fat reduction treatment. CoolSculpting before and after pictures can help you determine whether fat-freezing will bring the results you are looking for.

Fast, Pain-Free Fat Reduction

With quick, convenient 35-minute treatment times, CoolSculpting is FDA-cleared and scientifically proven to reduce diet- and exercise-resistant fat. 

Sessions are virtually painless, and with little to no downtime, it’s an easy treatment to squeeze into busy schedules.

CoolSculpting Results

The process takes time to show in full, with visible results appearing anywhere between 8 to 12 weeks after a complete CoolSculpting cycle. Many patients see the most dramatic fat reduction results within two months of treatment

One of the best parts about CoolSculpting is that it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Fat cells continue to be eliminated from the body for up to six months after a CoolSculpting treatment. 

As long as you stick with a healthy diet and active lifestyle, you can expect to see improvements for a long time.

How Cryolipolysis Makes CoolSculpting So Effective

As a popular cosmetic treatment that gets rid of fat in a non-invasive way, fat freezing works by the science of cryolipolysis. ‘Cryo’ means cold, ‘lipo’ refers to fat cells, and ‘lysis’ means cell death and removal.

 

Advanced technology in CoolSculpting applicators will gather fat in a target area and expose fat cells to controlled cooling. Damaging the cell’s membrane means it can no longer store fat. The cells will rupture, triggering an immune response that collects and disposes of them via lymphatic drainage. This safely and effectively reduces stubborn fat in areas from head to knee.

Professional CoolSculpting Vs. At-Home CoolSculpting

Going to a medical spa for body contouring means that you are employing the help of trained specialists with state-of-the-art equipment. CoolSculpting uses science so as not to cause damage to any other cells as it does to fat cells. Therefore, no harm comes to underlying tissues and skin.

During the treatment, the CoolSculpting practitioner vacuums the fatty tissue area into an applicator to cool the fat cells. The freezing temperature will numb that particular skin area. Some people describe it as a cooling sensation; most patients report the procedure as easily tolerable.

DIY CoolSculpting

It’s not uncommon to want to find solutions you can do at home, on your schedule, without spending money. People try mimicking the cold sculpt technology, but the results of DIY CoolSculpting are often damaging

What happens is that the cold doesn’t properly penetrate the skin and target fat cells, so individuals wind up with frostbite. Professionals are better able to create a treatment plan for your body, monitoring the fat-freezing process for your safety and comfort.

Fat cells are not hardy like skin cells. When the fat is exposed to the extreme cooling of cryolipolysis, the cells freeze while the skin and surrounding tissue remain unharmed. When the fat cells freeze, the cellular structure becomes damaged, causing it to die. In response, the body collects the disabled cells. Weeks after treatment, the lymphatic system processes the cells out of the body as waste.

CoolSculpting Cost

The cost of body contouring with CoolSculpting varies. Treatments are created to fit the needs of each patient, thus meaning each treatment plan is vastly different from other plans. The total cost for a CoolSculpting plan depends on the size and shape of the applicators, the target treatment areas, and the number of cooling cycles in the plan.

You can get a personalized body contouring cost by scheduling a free consultation. During your visit, you talk to a technician about the cost of treatment. If CoolSculpting is suitable for your body, they create a plan that achieves optimal fat reduction and fits in with your budget.

Comparing Fat Removal Treatments: Sono Bello, CoolSculpting & Lipo

Comparing Fat Removal Treatments: Sono Bello, CoolSculpting & Lipo

A fail-safe way to get that slim figure you’ve been dreaming of? Sure, they say to stay active and eat a healthy diet. And yes, those are good things to do for yourself. But for many people, they’re not the only steps necessary to reach body goals.

Sometimes it seems impossible to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. That’s where med spas come to the rescue. On the journey towards looking and feeling like your best self, some choose to undergo surgeries that alter appearance. There is nothing wrong with that – surgery can be a highly effective way to achieve the specific look you’re hoping for.

Surgery is not the choice for everyone. Some prefer to stay away from anesthesia, stitches, and recovery time. Others don’t want to spend the money on a pricier procedure, and would rather find something more affordable. Still others have contraindications that prevent them from undergoing surgery.

Can Fat Be Removed Without Surgery?

From body contouring with CoolSculpting to fat loss and muscle strenghtening with Emsculpt, there are very effective solutions that don’t require surgery. While that is fantastic news for everyone, it also means there are decisions to be made. With so many treatment choices, it can be overwhelming to figure out which one (or ones) are best for you. Your body and goals are going to be different than the next person, just like how your body responds to treatment.

Let’s go through some of the best fat reduction solutions, comparing them so you have all the details necessary to make your choice.

CoolSculpting Vs. Liposuction

CoolSculpting is massively popular as a non-surgical alternative. Having been successful for more than 20 years, CoolSculpting services are in high demand.

When comparing CoolSculpting and Liposuction, the important thing to note is that one is surgical and the other is not. Liposuction has long been called the gold standard in surgical treatment for excess fat.

While we do not currently offer liposuction, our professionals are familiar with the technologies, techniques and results patients can expect. We are more than happy to provide comparison details that help you understand your options.

Liposuction: Surgical Fat Removal

As a surgical procedure, Liposuction requires either local or general anesthesia. Since it is an aggressive treatment, patients expect soreness, bruising, and swelling for several days.

Using suction, Lipo removes fat from areas throughout the body, including:

The ideal Lipo candidate will be an adult with average or slightly above-average weight – a healthy, nonsmoker with pockets of excess fat and realistic body goals. For an invasive surgery, you must be able to dedicate four to six weeks of recovery time to let your body heal after treatment. 

CoolSculpting: Non-Invasive Fat Reduction

Rather than going under the knife, CoolSculpting allows patients to reduce unwanted fat in specific areas and still drive themselves home after treatment. There is no anesthesia, incisions, or injections, and minimal to no downtime.

CoolSculpting Elite targets many areas of the body, including:

By using cooling technology known as cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting exposes fat cells to the precise temperature necessary to induce crystallization, which leads to cell death. A targeted amount of fat cells will then be processed out of the body through lymphatic drainage. We see many patients turning to CoolSculpting as a way to remove belly fat without surgery. 

Is CoolSculpting More Effective Than Liposuction?

CoolSculpting Elite eliminates up to 25% of fat cells in the area each treatment for a smaller amount of fat reduction that still makes a massive difference. Every CoolSculpting session builds on the last one, meaning patients can schedule multiple treatments to continue seeing improvement. And with CoolSculpting Elite (the newest model), you can target two areas at once – covering more fat removal with less time. 

If getting rid of large amounts of fat is your goal, Liposuction can safely remove between six and eight pounds. Whether one is more effective depends on what you want to accomplish with treatment, and what you prefer the procedure to be like. 

Sono Bello Vs. CoolSculpting

Sono Bello and CoolSculpting remove unwanted fat, smoothing bulges for a slimmer, contoured physique. While we currently don’t offer Sono Bello at our practice, our medical team stays up-to-date with popular technologies. We are happy to help you understand the options you’ll come across as you consider body contouring. 

Sono Bello is a Laser Liposuction procedure. It requires local anesthesia, meaning you are awake but the treatment area is numb. Incisions are made before a laser loosens fat before it is suctioned out, leaving you several pounds lighter. Recovery time is typically two or three days of rest along with compression garments for several weeks.

Sono Bello Results

Sono Bello can treat just about anywhere on the body, although it’s commonly chosen for the abs, waist, and hip areas.

Initial changes can be seen within the first few days or weeks of treatment. Final results typically show within six months of treatment. 

CoolSculpting Results

The traditional CoolSculpting device treats one area at a time, providing anywhere from 18-20% fat removal. CoolSculpting Elite is the advanced version, capable of treating two areas simultaneously and providing more dramatic results. With Elite, patients see 20-25% fat reduction in a single treatment. 

Initial body contouring enhancements begin to show as quickly as one to three months after treatment. The final, optimal results show around six months. And patients can choose to build on their results. With each treatment, CoolSculpting continues to build on its improvements, targeting unwanted fat on the body until you reach your goals.

Which is Better, CoolSculpting or Sono Bello?

The convenience aspect alone makes the CoolSculpting decision an easy one for many patients. With Sono Bello, you will need to account for healing time from incisions and having someone drive you home after the procedure.

Since CoolSculpting is non-invasive, there are no incisions to recover from, and no anesthesia forcing your rest. You can resume normal activities right away. 

Is CoolSculpting or Laser Lipo More Effective?

Both CoolSculpting and Laser Liposuction are non-invasive fat reduction treatments that provide similar results. While the results are not as dramatic as surgical fat removal, the improvements that either treatment brings make them the best choice for many. The easiest way to decide which option is going to be better for you is by scheduling a consultation. When you find a provider that you trust, you’ll have guidance along your journey towards fat loss.

Emsculpt vs CoolSculpting

As two of our most popular treatments, many patients ask about the difference between Emsculpt and CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is a fantastic solution for minimizing fat pockets long-term. What it does not do is strengthen muscles or add definition. That’s where Emsculpt comes in. 

Emsculpt, and its newer version, Emsculpt NEO, target two problems at once: reducing fat and building muscle. For those who want to firm up after burning fat, Emsculpt NEO may be perfect.

One thing to keep in mind is that Emsculpt isn’t always for slimming – sometimes that extra muscle definition helps clothes fit tighter. Emsculpt NEO before and after images can give you a clearer picture of what to expect.

How Much Does it Cost to Get Rid of Fat?

The cost of fat removal treatments varies significantly since there are so many types. Plus, the location of your medical spa and the treatment area itself factor largely into pricing. For example, Liposuction can range anywhere from $1,000 to $20,000, with an average of $3,600 per treatment area. The average cost of CoolSculpting is $3,200 per treatment area. Sono Bello can range anywhere from $2,500 to $4,500.

To determine the exact cost that you would pay for fat removal, visit a med spa of your choice to speak with professionals about your goals. Emsculpt NEO cost is also subjective to the individual. A range of cost gives you at least an idea of what to expect, but a consultation will give you the exact price.

Laser Facial Benefits

How Laser Skin Resurfacing Takes Skincare to a New Level

There are so many laser treatments available, all of which help target different concerns. A laser facial, also known as laser skin resurfacing, is a non-surgical treatment for facial rejuvenation. Using sophisticated laser technology, this facial reduces the signs of aging, improves blemishes, and reinvigorates your appearance with a healthier, more radiant complexion. It also evens skin pigmentation, tightens skin, and removes lesions. 

Read on to learn more about laser facials, including the options you have, and all the benefits they bring to determine if laser skin resurfacing is right for you.

TYPES OF FACIAL LASERS

There are a variety of cosmetic lasers meant to target all sorts of issues. They vary in wavelength and intensity. Different wavelengths are utilized to treat various skin concerns. And different intensities penetrate the skin at different depths. More robust lasers penetrate deeper and deliver more dramatic results. They are also more invasive than gentler lasers.

For example, fractional lasers are non-invasive, targeting a fraction of the skin’s surface at one time while non-fractionated lasers treat the entire surface. Non-ablative lasers don’t damage the outer layer of your skin, while ablative lasers remove the top layer of skin to help with deeper issues.

Some of the popular types of lasers include:

  • XTRAC laser for many forms of psoriasis
  • MOXI Laser for skin rejuvenation
  • CO2 Lasers for more profound skin flaws

At  Dermatology Laser Center and Medispa, we use only the most advanced cosmetic technologies. This includes the eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation laser system. Sublative lasers help stimulate collagen production for better elasticity within the skin. This brings tighter, smoother skin that appears brighter.

Do Laser Facials Hurt?

The most patients typically report feeling from a laser facial is that of a rubber band snapping against the skin. It’s quite minimal discomfort, especially as your skin adjusts to the feeling of treatment and you stop noticing the feeling. Once the treatment is over, any discomfort ceases and you are free to continue your day, taking precautions to protect your sensitive skin as it heals.

Benefits of Laser Facial

The laser facial utilizes advanced technology to resurface the skin. The laser safely penetrates the skin and warms the various layers of tissue with thermal energy. Heating the tissue triggers physiological responses that rejuvenate the skin, including reversing or improving:

Laser facials treat more than just the face. Laser resurfacing rejuvenates numerous areas of the body. However, the most requested treatment areas (besides the face) include the neck and chest area (decolletage) for cellular renewal, collagen creation, and skin tightening.

Cellular Renewal

Thermal energy from the cosmetic laser initiates cellular renewal. Cellular renewal is where the cells of the epidermis (top layer of skin) are continually regenerating. New, healthy cells form in the bottom layer of the skin, eventually making their way to the surface. This helps remove irregularities in tone and texture and exfoliates the surface of dead or dull skin cells. The process triggers a healing response in the body, which can repair scar tissue and offer scar flexibility as tissues tighten.

The final results reveal the underlying layer of fresh, healthy skin cells. In addition, the skin is brightened for a more radiant complexion.

Collagen Creation

Heating the deeper layers of skin tissue rejuvenates the skin on a cellular level. The thermal energy initiates collagenisis (or the creation of collagen.) This vital structural protein supports the skin and keeps it looking young, taut, healthy, and blemish-free. Collagen breaks down, and production depletes as we get older. 

This depletion of collagen means more wrinkles, blemishes, and laxity to age our face. By stimulating the production of collagen, the laser facial rejuvenates the face by:

Essentially, a laser facial helps return elasticity to your skin for a youthful appearance.

Skin Tightening

In addition to improving skin laxity by creating more collagen, thermal energy also causes the fibers that make up the skin matrix to contract or tighten. Since collagen makes up 80% of your skin’s structure, replenishing it helps bring strength back to accommodate the aging process. Therefore, even during weight gain, the skin is more readily able to expand as the body grows, remaining vibrant and supple.

Maximizing Your Laser Facial Results

Your laser treatment aftercare routine will make all the difference in the healing process. The day after treatment, you’ll use Vaseline or a gel recommended by your provider to coat the skin in moisturizing nourishment. Moisturizers should include fulfilling ingredients that offer deep hydration such as:

To avoid irritation and washing away any of the goodness that the treatment brings, avoid washing your face later in the day after treatment. Ice packs are incredibly beneficial in reducing any redness and inflammation, and Tylenol can alleviate any discomfort.

Cleansing & Protecting the Skin After Laser Treatment

Use gentle cleansers the days following your appointment (your provider should offer recommendations). Consider antimicrobial towels and pillowcases to help your skin stay at its best. While it’s not a necessary step, using antimicrobial materials around your face helps keep the surface free from bacteria that cause irritation.

Your skin will be in a highly sensitive state as you recover from a laser facial, making it more susceptible to the sun’s UV rays. As new cells generate and the skin heals, avoid too much time in the sun. Wear a hat and sunglasses, even if it’s not overly sunny outside. Remember your sunscreen – at least SPF 30 – applications should be just as frequent on a bright day as a cloudy one. Damaging rays can still reach your skin if it’s not very sunny.

Makeup application often shouldn’t happen for around a week after your appointment. While some providers are fine with less time between using makeup and a laser facial, giving your skin the extra time to heal before covering it with heavier products will only serve you better.

Setting Yourself Up For Success Before Laser Treatment

Since everyone has different skin conditions and concerns to address, it’s important to share your goals with your specialist in their entirety. Many times, it’s possible to strategically combine laser services to cover a variety of issues. Plus, you should have a clear understanding of what to expect with your laser facial of choice. 

Facials are quick, typically taking under an hour, and offer dramatic results that you can maintain for continually healthy skin. Knowing what to expect before, during, and after treatment makes all the difference in loving your results.

Photofacial Vs. Laser Facial

The difference between a photofacial and laser facial is that BBL Photofacials use BroadBand Light pulses to renew the skin. Photofacials are less invasive than laser treatments. This makes them a great solution for anyone who has minimal skin concerns and doesn’t want to take any recovery time. 

Laser facials take a bit of time to heal before seeing optimal results. It usually takes about a week after your treatment for your skin to eliminate debris – your skin will be dry and peel as it regenerates a healthy layer of skin. Patients who choose laser treatments should take the necessary precautions after an appointment, including avoiding irritating products and direct sunlight. This means wearing hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen. However, taking this time for healing has the maximum impact on results. Laser facials offer dramatic improvements to skin concerns that can make you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable.

What Area is Best for Emsculpt NEO? A Treatment Guide

Best Emsculpt NEO Areas: A Treatment Guide

Trying to lose fat and build muscle is a challenge many of us face. Maybe you’re already making meal plans and hitting the gym, but you’re also thinking about adding a treatment that speeds up results.

Emsculpt NEO is FDA-cleared to build muscle and reduce fat in the abdomen, the buttocks, the arms, and the legs (including thighs and calves).

Here’s how and why these are the best areas to treat with Emsculpt NEO. Remember that the key to stunning results is finding the right provider. You should feel comfortable and confident moving forward with a team you trust.

Popular Emsculpt NEO Treatment Areas

Providers equipped with the latest Emsculpt NEO technology will be able to treat specific target areas to help you sculpt the body of your dreams. Read on to learn about the treatment areas of Emsculpt NEO and how this popular cosmetic treatment can benefit your specific body contouring goals.

Emsculpt NEO Arms

The newest applicator for Emsculpt NEO is a small applicator designed to treat arms. The upper arm areas are notorious problem areas that so many of us face.

Upper arm fat is directly influenced by age, genetics, and hormones. This means that the fat may persist regardless of your diet or healthy lifestyle. Emsculpt NEO’s new applicator targets stubborn fat deposits in the upper arms.

During treatments, RF (radio frequency) energy melts the stubborn fat. At the same time, HIFEM® (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) energy strengthens muscle at the equivalent of 20,000 bicep curls.

Emsculpt NEO Stomach / Abs

Many men and women choose Emsculpt NEO treatments to get the coveted six-pack abs. Treatments on the stomach tone and strengthen the core muscles unlike anything else. Many studies show that attaining abs is more complex than it appears. Your work in the gym can be hidden by stubborn fat that does not respond well, if at all, to ab workouts.

Additionally, many cosmetic treatments do not target muscles and only focus on reducing fat. Emsculpt NEO can do both. Abdomen treatments effectively melt stubborn fat with RF energy and build abdominal muscle with HIFEM energy. You can experience the equivalent of 20,000 crunches in just one treatment.

Emsculpt NEO Abs Before and After*

Emsculpt NEO Buttocks

Emsculpt NEO is a favorite non-surgical alternative to a butt lift. Traditional butt lift procedures are surgical, which includes general anesthesia, stitches, and associated risks.

Emsculpt NEO provides a plumper backside non-invasively with little to no downtime. In addition, during Emsculpt NEO buttock treatments, new tissue necessary for volumetric growth is created while the existing tissue is strengthened. Together, these effects lift and reduce stubborn fat for a firmer and perkier appearance.

Emsculpt NEO Thighs

Thighs and legs can be tough to maintain, especially if you are pear-shaped, or heavier on your lower half. Stubborn pockets of fat tend to collect around the legs and upper thighs, even with healthy eating and exercise habits.

Some people exercise intensively and often, seeking trainers and other assistance to slim their legs, and still have trouble reaching their goals. In fact, if you’re a woman struggling with thick thighs, you may be on the receiving end of hormone-influenced fat deposits.

Now, thanks to continually improving technology, Emsculpt NEO reduces an average of 30% excess fat while increasing muscle by an average of 25%. Since it focuses on both fat reduction and muscle building, Emsculpt NEO is more effective than CoolSculpting.

Emsculpt NEO Calves

If you’re not among the rare few who seem to have been gifted with solid calves, it can be a battle to tone them. Emsculpt Neo can help you reach your goals with each 30-minute session. And with no downtime after your appointment, you start to see results fast without surgery or injectables.

At Dermatology Laser Center & Medispa, our team creates a custom treatment plan with you to determine the right number of sessions for your calves.

Find Out if Emsculpt NEO in Baltimore is Right For You

As you can see in the before and afters, the treatment reduces fat and builds muscle. The best way to maintain your Emsculpt NEO results is through a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

Even though the technology eliminates stubborn fat cells and tones the treatment area, it is still possible to gain weight if you aren’t eating well and using your muscles.

If you’re in the Baltimore area and are ready to target stubborn fat with Emsculpt NEO, our team is here to help! Schedule a complimentary consultation by calling 410-356-0000.

MOXI™ Laser Healing: A Laser Treatment Aftercare Guide

MOXI™ Laser Healing: A Laser Treatment Aftercare Guide

Finding a treatment that reverses existing damage and prevents future complications has always been a goal in medical aesthetics. And in the past, it wasn’t always doable. Technology needed to improve, and more research needed to be done. But now, the MOXI laser exists and is known for its prejuvenation qualities.

Prejuvenation means ‘preventative rejuvenation” and refers to the anti-aging results seen with MOXI. It addresses current skin conditions and helps stop more damage from occurring.

At Dermatology Laser Center & Medispa, MOXI laser resurfacing is a popular choice for all skin types, all year round. We work with our patients to create a treatment plan that fits individual needs and offer support through the end of each healing process.

MOXI Laser Recovery

Laser skin resurfacing improves the signs of aging. As a  customizable treatment, it caters to each person’s needs, meaning downtime looks slightly different for everyone. As you heal, there are a few things you can do to speed things up and keep yourself comfortable. Proper cleansing, moisturizer, and sunscreen application will be the key.

Hours After MOXI Laser

Some patients experience pinpoint bleeding. This is not something to worry about, as it often goes away within 12 hours.

Days After MOXI Laser

Immediately following this procedure, you can expect some swelling and redness. Swelling is typically the most noticeable the morning after, particularly around the eyes. To try and combat this discomfort, sleep with your head elevated for a couple of nights.

Most patients notice some swelling for the first two to four days of healing.
Two or three days after treatment, your skin will show tiny dark spots. With a slightly bronzed appearance, you will also notice that your skin is dry and feels like sandpaper.

The dark spots and bronzed look come from something called MENDs (microscopic epidermal necrotic debris). They are a normal part of the healing process, just like the dry skin that will flake and peel off. You can help support this process by moisturizing properly and not picking at the skin.

Weeks After MOXI Laser

If you’re getting MOXI laser treatment on your body, it will typically take two weeks to finish peeling. However, once your skin finishes flaking, you will be left with a rosy glow. Eventually, this glow will fade into naturally fresh-looking skin.

MOXI Before and After

MOXI works with all skin types, and with a custom treatment plan, your skin will soon be looking brighter and more healthy.

Keep in mind that results vary from person to person, based on the depth of treatment and the number of sessions. We recommend three to four treatments, about four to six weeks apart. But you can expect to see results after the first session!

MOXI Laser Aftercare

The better you are with your skincare and healing process, the faster you will see results. Plus, you will likely amplify the results, giving yourself the best possible skin.

These are all of our best tips for making the most of your MOXI laser treatment.

Skin Care Post-Laser Treatment

On the day of your MOXI Laser session, do not cleanse your skin. Let it rest.

The next day, you can begin a basic skincare routine that involves:

  • Cleansing twice a day with lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser
  • Avoiding a powerful shower stream, whirlpools, and really hot water
  • Applying an even layer of broadband protection sunscreen that is at least SPF 30
  • Avoiding any rubbing, scrubbing, or exfoliants to help prevent irritation
  • Applying moisturizer to prevent additional dryness
  • Avoiding too much exercise so that you aren’t sweating profusely

When washing your face after laser treatment, use careful patting motions with your hands. And when you’re showering, try not to get shampoo or conditioner on the treated area.

MOXI Laser Side Effects

Feeling warm after treatment is fairly common, and the area might continue to feel warm up to 24 hours post-appointment. This, along with the swelling we mentioned earlier, can be alleviated with cold compresses and mineral water sprays.

Protect your skin from potential blistering, scarring, or hyperpigmentation by wearing a hat and protective clothing along with your dedicated sunscreen regimen.

A chart depicting various potential side effects of Moxi Laser and what to do to alleviate symptoms

Side effects from MOXI laser that indicate you should call your healthcare provider include:

  • Running a fever
  • Pus-like drainage
  • Excessive warmth
  • Extreme itching

These are far less common but more serious. Be sure to find a MOXI provider that you trust so that you can have peace of mind throughout your treatment and recovery.

How Long Does Skin Take to Heal After Laser Treatment?

Depending on the nature of your condition, level of treatment, and area to address, healing time can take between five days and a month. While your skin is healing and sensitive, avoid heavy creams or cosmetics that can irritate your face.

After this time, you might still notice some residual pinkness to your skin since it’s all fresh now, but this can be corrected with makeup if you prefer. Keep in mind that any brushes you use should either be clean or new. This will help maintain clear skin and avoid potential infection.

MOXI Laser in Owings Mills, MD

By repairing existing damage and promoting new, healthy growth, the MOXI laser is a highly requested treatment in our Owings Mills office.

Known as the best preventative option for young adults, MOXI laser typically leaves very minimal downtime. However, it’s always best to know the possibilities before committing to a treatment, which is why we created this guide.

Ditch the Scalpel: 4 Revolutionary Non-surgical Facelifts That Work

Our skin loses its youthful glow and elasticity as we grow older. Unfortunately, this often leads to the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin. A facelift is a popular solution, but many are wary of undergoing surgery. Fortunately, non-surgical facelift treatments have come a long way. They offer safe and effective alternatives to invasive procedures. This comprehensive guide will explore four non-surgical facelift alternatives: Botox, EMface, Sculptra, and Morpheus8, to help you decide which treatment suits your aesthetic goals and needs.

Botox: The Anti-aging Toxin Alternative

Botox is among the most popular cosmetic treatments globally. This non-invasive facelift procedure targets dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements. It temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that controls muscle contractions. This leads to the relaxation of the facial muscles and the smoothing of the skin. Ultimately, you enjoy a more youthful appearance.

Botox targets a variety of areas on the face, such as:

  • glabellar lines: the lines that form between the eyebrows
  •  crow’s feet: wrinkles around the eyes

Sculptra: The Collagen Stimulating Filler

Sculptra is not your average dermal filler. Instead, it is a unique collagen-stimulating treatment. In short, it provides a subtle, natural, and gradual improvement in your skin’s appearance. Sculptra works by activating the natural production of collagen in the body. Collagen is a protein in the skin that gives it firmness, smoothness, and elasticity.

This treatment can effectively treat areas such as the cheeks, chin, and temples. In addition, it discreetly smoothes out lines, wrinkles, and folds. Sculptra’s unique formulation and mechanism of action make it an excellent option for those seeking a more natural-looking and long-lasting improvement in their appearance.

The treatment process involves a series of injections precisely placed in the treatment areas. The body slowly and gradually absorbs Sculptra. Consequently, it stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. Furthermore, it restores volume and smoothness to the face.

Morpheus8: The Radiofrequency Microneedling Solution

Morpheus8 is a non-surgical facelift treatment that harnesses the power of micro-needling and fractional radiofrequency (RF). As a result, it stimulates collagen production in the skin, leading to a more youthful and lifted appearance. This powerful treatment addresses wrinkles, sagging skin, and even acne marks. In fact, it is an excellent option for anyone looking to achieve a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Morpheus8 targets the deeper layers of the skin. It creates tiny wounds that trigger the body’s natural healing process. This process stimulates collagen production and helps the skin to maintain its elasticity. As a result, you will see smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin. Moreover, the radiofrequency energy acts on the underlying dermis of the skin to contract collagen fibers. This further helps with skin tightening.

Morpheus8 is highly effective in treating different body areas, including the face, neck, chest, and abdomen. The treatment takes less than an hour. Patients can usually resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure.
