Most patients experience an average of 20% fat reduction after one treatment. The procedure is totally non-surgical, so you can return to regular activities after treatment.

CoolSculpting fat reduction
CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive fat reduction procedure.  Fat deposits are reduced using Cyrolipolysis, which is a system of controlled coolingthat targets and freezes fat cells, but does not affect the surrounding tissue. The fat cells eventually die, and are naturally eliminated by the body. CoolSculpting can be used to treat fat on the abdomen, flanks, and the inner and outer thighs.

What to expect
Patients will feel some tugging when the applicators pull the skin into the device at the start of treatment. However, this subsides after a few minutes, and the rest of the treatment is very tolerable.

Most people notice results by about 3 weeks after treatment, as the body slowly eliminates the fat cells. However, final results can take up to 3 months.

What is the recovery time for CoolSculpting?
There is no recovery time after CoolSculpting, so you can resume regular activities after treatment; some patients even go right back to work. There will be some redness in the treated area, but this should last only for a few hours. There may alsobe some tenderness, swelling, and bruising, which may last for up to 2 weeks, but these side-effects should not keep you from going back to your usual routine.

How many Cellfina treatments do you need to see results?

If you’re looking for a way to banish cellulite, we have the solution for you here at Song Plastic Surgery in Orange County. It’s a revolutionary new technique to get rid of cellulite known as Cellfina. Cellfina is FDA approved for addressing the underlying structural cause of cellulite. But how exactly does it work, and how many Cellfina treatments do you need to see results.

What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition in which the skin develops a dimpled, lumpy appearance. This occurs when the connective bands that are present throughout the fat layer beneath the surface, pull down on the skin. This is what creates the puckering or dimples that you see. Cellulite can usually be seenon the thighs and buttocks.

Cellfina Cellulite Treatment
Cellfina is a minimally invasive treatment that precisely treats the areas where the cellulite is located. It targets the bands that pull down on the skin, and once the bands are released, the skin bounces back to its original position and smooths itself out.

Treatment takes about 45 minutes. There is no downtime, so patients can resume regular activities immediately. Side-effects are minimal and may include soreness, swelling, and tenderness. Cellfina treats moderate to severe cases of cellulite.

How many treatments do you need?
Cellfina is a one-time treatment, and most patients experience a noticeable reduction in the appearance of cellulite about 3 days after treatment. Final results can be seen after 3 months and typically last up to 2 years.

How many sessions of CoolSculpting are needed to see results?

CoolSculpting was officially launched in 2010, and since then thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical body contouring treatment that is fast, effective, and achieves measureable results that last. It gets rid of fat cells by freezing them away,and requires little or no downtime. Are you wondering how many sessions of CoolSculpting are needed to see results? Let’s take a look.

Facts about CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a FDA-cleared fat reduction treatment that freezes fat cells, using a system of controlled cooling known as cryolipolysis. It is indicated for use on the flanks and abdomen.

How it works
The CoolSculpting applicator suctions in the skin and fat in the targeted area. The cold crystallizes the fat cells, as they are more susceptible to cold than the surrounding tissues. The cells are then broken down, and ultimately eliminated by the body over the following months.

How many sessions of CoolSculpting do you need to see results?
It typically takes 1-2 sessions to achieve optimal outcomes with CoolSculpting, but that is not always the case. Some people may require more treatments based on their individual needs. The number of sessions needed will be influenced by the size of the fatty areas being contoured, and the extent of the improvement desired.

After each session, patients generally experience between 15-30% reduction in the fat bulge that was treated. Results can be seen after 3-4 weeks, but it may take up to 4 months to see the full results.

Is there an ideal age for breast augmentation?

Many women in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s struggle with feelings of low self-esteem, and they often turn to cosmetic procedures like breast augmentation, to make them feel more comfortable with their body. But is there an ideal age for breast augmentation, or can it be done at any age.

Breast augmentation
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that is done to make the breasts larger, and typically involves the use of saline or silicone gel implants. The FDA has approved silicone breast implants for use in women 22 years and older, while saline implants can be used by women 18 years and older.

Is there an ideal age for breast augmentation?
There is no ideal age for breast augmentation, but there are several variables doctors consider when determining a patient’s suitability. However, most breast augmentation patients are between the ages of 20 and 35.

When assessing patients for breast augmentation, doctors look at their emotional maturity rather than focusing on age, as patients need to be mature enough to understand all thatsurgery involves. They also need to have realistic expectations about surgery.

In addition, patients considering breast augmentation should have fully developed breasts. For most women this happens by the age of 18, but others have to wait until their early 20’s. If breast augmentation is performed on a woman with breasts that are not fully developed, it can cause the breasts to stretch and sag as they grow.

If you are considering breast augmentation surgery, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your unique situation, and then determine if you are a good candidate.

Are chemical peels safe for sensitive skin?

If your skin is looking lackluster, a chemical peel is a great way to restore its natural glow. However, people with sensitive skin are often wary of chemical peels, because of the possibility of irritation, and there’s nothing wrong with that approach. But if you do have sensitive skin its best to visit an experienced dermatologist and ask this important question – Are chemical peels safe for sensitive skin?

Understanding chemical peels
Chemical peels are effective skin rejuvenation treatments, as they loosen surface debris, and get rid of dead skin cells. Removing those cells, bring vibrant new cells to the surface.

However, they are different types of chemical peels that vary based on the depth of penetration, as well as the concentration of the solutions used. Peels may be light, medium, or deep, and can be high-strength or low-strength, depending on the skin condition, and skin type.

Chemical Peels for sensitive skin
There are certain types of chemical peels that are suitable for delicate, sensitive skin. If you have sensitive skin, doctors generally recommended light, gentle peels that consist of less irritating substances such as lactic acid (derived from milk), or citric acid.

People with sensitive skin are generally advised to avoid deep chemical peels, as they may not be well tolerated, and could trigger a reaction.

Do you have sensitive skin, and would like to have a chemical peel done? Be sure to consult with a board-certified dermatologist.

Clients in the Chicago area can contact Skin Care Center for a consultation. We will make certain to select the right peel for your skin type.

Do laser hair removal treatments hurt?

Laser hair removal technology continues to evolve, and there are now more efficient devices that are not only safer, but also less painful. So do laser hair removal treatments still hurt, or do these advanced lasers make the procedure less painful.

How Laser hair removal works
The lasers target the pigment in the hair follicle. They emit an intense beam of light that penetrates down to the root of the follicle, and destroys it, so that there is no regrowth.

At Medicetics Skin Clinic in London & Cirencester,we use the Ellman Cheveux II Diode laser for hair removal. The Cheveux II is equipped with smooth flow 10P technology, which makes hair removal safe, easy, and very effective. It can be used on all skin types, and on all areas of the body.

It typically takes about 6-8 treatments to treat each area, since hair grows in phases, which means the laser will not affect all the hair at the same time.

Do laser hair removal treatments hurt?
Patients will feel some discomfort as the laser zaps the skin, but this is off-set by the built-in cooling system that most lasers have. The cooling system is designed to minimize the discomfort, and also protect the outer layer of the skin from the heat.

Most patients say that laser hair removal feels a lot like a rubber band being snapped against the skin, so it is really not too painful.

The Cheveux II that we use at Medicetics Skin Clinic has a sapphire glass cooling system that increases patient comfort.

How much does a rhinoplasty typically cost?

Some people consider the nose the defining facial feature, so if it’s not in harmony with their other features of the face they decide to get a nose job or rhinoplasty to fix it. Nose surgery is one of the top plastic surgeries done in the US each year, so people are curious to find out – ‘How much does a rhinoplasty typically cost.’

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to reshape the nose. Many people undergo nose surgery for cosmetic reasons, but it is sometimes done for functional reasons, such as to correct an injury or breathing disorder.

How much does a rhinoplasty cost?
The cost of a rhinoplasty depends on several factors including geographic location, and the complexity of the work that needs to be done. For example tip work won’t cost the same as removing a bony hump.

The cost of rhinoplasty ranges from $5,000 – $6,000, and revision rhinoplasty is likely to cost more.

When looking at the cost of rhinoplasty, it is important to remember that plastic surgeons rank rhinoplasty as one of the most difficult cosmetic operations to perform.

Rhinoplasty is one of those surgeries that requires not just skill, but artistic sensibilities, along with a scientific understanding of the ear, nose, and throat.

For this reason, you should never let cost be the deciding factor when getting a nose job. Instead, you should confirm the surgeon’s expertise, and view before and after photos of previous rhinoplasty patients.

A well-done nose job will appear natural and won’t look ‘done,’ so be sure to choose an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon for the operation.

Are PRP treatments safe?

Within the last few years platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy has become an in-demand skin rejuvenation treatment. The regenerative properties of PRP make it a very effective anti-aging cosmetic treatment. It can reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and scars, and also stimulate collagen. The benefits are clear, but are PRP treatments safe?

What is PRP?
PRP is a treatment that uses your own blood platelets to rejuvenate the skin, and improve your complexion. The platelets are rich in growth factors that help to initiate skin repair, by stimulating the production of collagen, elastin, andnew cells.

PRP treatment can be used on various parts of the body, but is commonly applied to the face and neck. PRP will enrich the tone and texture of your skin. Results can be seen about 3 weeks after treatment, and improvements will continue for several months.

How does it work?
A small amount of blood is extracted from the patient, and it is then passed through a centrifuge allowing the platelet rich plasma to separate from the red and white cells. The PRP is then injected into the targeted area of the skin.

Are PRP treatments safe?
PRP treatments are generally quite safe, since the platelets are derived from your own blood. There is therefore little likelihood of an allergic reaction. However, PRP therapy is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

PRP with Microneedling
PRP skin rejuvenation treatment is available at Wisconsin Vein Center and MediSpa, Pewaukee, WI. We use PRP with microneedling to restore the youthful glow to the skin. Microneedling therapy enhances the absorption of the platelets, resulting in improved outcomes.

Are you interested in PRP skin rejuvenation treatment? Contact Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa. Call 262-746-9088 today, to set up a PRP Microneedling consultation with Dr. Deborah Manjoney.

Are MiraDry results permanent?

If you suffer from excessive underarm sweating that is causing you embarrassment at work or social functions, you’ll be glad to know that miraDry offers relief. miraDryis a novel, non-invasive alternative that promises long lasting results to the problem of underarm sweating, but are miraDry results permanent.

Why do you sweat so much?
Everybody sweats. It’s a normal function that the body uses to cool off in response to rising temperatures, but why do some people sweat so much. Doctors aren’t quite sure, but they believe it is could be due to medical problems, as well as the increased sensitivity of the sweat glands.

What is MiraDry?
MiraDry is a FDA cleared non-invasive treatment for sweaty armpits.

How does it work?
The underarm is first numbed, and then the device is applied to the skin. The miraDry handpiece delivers electromagnetic energy (microwave energy) to the armpit, and it heats and destroys the sweat and odor glands.

The treatment is virtually painless, but patients will feel a slight pull, as the glands and skin are drawn towards the device during treatment. The procedure takes about 1 hour to complete.

There may be some swelling and numbness after treatment, but this usually clears within a few days. Downtime is minimal, and most people are able to return to work immediately after treatment. Most people notice an immediate reduction in sweat after one treatment, others may require 2 treatments spaced about 3 months apart.

Are the results permanent?
Since miraDry destroys the sweat and odor glands and the glands are not able to grow back, the results of treatment are usually permanent. However, the results may not be the same for everyone.

miraDry treatment for excessive underarm sweating is available for patients in the greater metro Atlanta area at Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C.& Aesthetic Center. Call today for a consultation.
