Treatments

Skin Rejuvenation

The skin rejuvenation laser is also known as photofacial or IPL. Our laser uses less light energy compared to other IPL machines, so you have a lower chance of side effects.

  • This treatment targets age spots, sunspots, rosacea, and red capillaries.
  • It evens the tone of your skin and improves the texture of your skin.
  • After the treatment, you can notice a reduction in pore size and an increase in skin smoothness.
  • Most patients derive maximal benefit from 3 to 5 treatments spaced about every 3 to 4 weeks.
  • Your whole face can be treated.
  • The treatment feels like a rubber snap sensation.
  • Unlike other laser procedures, no anesthetic is required.
  • Brown spots including freckles and age spots will gradually get lighter with each treatment.

After the treatment session, you can immediately resume your normal daily activity.

Skin Tightening

The skin tightening procedure heats the dermis layer of the skin with infrared light at a depth of 1 to 2 mm below the skin’s surface and extends the heating depth an additional 1 to 4 mm with bipolar radiofrequency. Collagen fibers in the dermis immediately contract.

  • You will feel tighter and firmer skin.
  • Skin Tightening will also stimulate collagen synthesis. Thus, you will continue to see improvement in the next 3-6 months when your body makes more collagen.
  • Most patients require 3 to 5 sessions, spaced about every 3 to 4 weeks. More sessions may be needed for aged skin.
  • The procedure is well tolerated, and no anesthesia is required.

You can resume your normal activity immediately after the treatment.

Botox®

Botox®  is a simple, non-surgical, physician administered treatment that can smooth moderate to severe lines on the face. This treatment is for the dynamic lines of the face. Botulinum toxin A is exceptionally effective at reducing the activity of muscles that cause lines that form from facial activity, some of which may otherwise become permanent over time. Botulinum toxin treatments usually last 3 months.

Cosmetic Filler Injections

Cosmetic Fillers are safe and natural that restore volume and fullness to the skin in order to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Cosmetic dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body.

Cosmetic Fillers maintain their shape by using the body’s own moisture and attracting more water to the area. As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid.

Cosmetic Fillers used in this clinic are Juvederm and Belatero.

 

Radiesse®

Healthy young skin contains collagen, which gives skin volume, flexibility and strength. As part of the aging process, your own natural collagen breaks down, resulting in diminishing facial volume. This loss of elasticity and volume results in the wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity that rob your skin of its youthful appearance.

The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. With RADIESSE® wrinkle filler, you welcome back your own natural collagen to smooth out the signs of aging. That’s because RADIESSE® wrinkle filler’s unique formulation stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen – which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients. It’s also why more and more doctors are choosing RADIESSE® wrinkle filler for long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
The RADIESSE® wrinkle filler difference:

  • Stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production
  • Instantly corrects wrinkles
  • Results that may last a year or more in many patients
  • Now FDA approved to enhance patient comfort with lidocaine included.

In just one syringe, many patients can achieve long-lasting youthful results.

Body Reshaping

Venus Freeze achieves results in the problem fatty areas of the body: abdomen, flanks, back, buttocks, thighs, legs, and arms. This technology can also tighten skin over your elbows and knees.  The technology underscoring the Venus Freeze treatment is the power of multi polar radio frequency (RF) combined with pulsed magnetic fields to create what is known as MP².  This unique combination has the ability to penetrate deeply, quickly comfortably and safely into the skin achieving optimum results. Patients can just relax during the treatment feeling only a warm comfortable sensation.

The procedure is pain-free and does not require any cooling agents or numbing cream. It’s also faster than other comparable treatments.  These technologies work together in order to increase fat metabolism, increase lymphatic drainage, and reduce the fat cell volume. Cellulite dimpling is reduced as the suction stretches the fibrous bands causing the cellulite.

Most patients have Venus Freeze treatment series once a week for eight weeks with each treatment taking 20 minutes. After the treatment, your skin will feel warm and will appear somewhat pink.  Unlike liposuction and mesotherapy, Venus Freeze treatments are completely non-invasive: there is no cutting or piercing of the skin or any sucking out of tissue. No anesthetic is required. For the vast majority of patients, Venus Freeze treatments are quite gentle, and there is no down time: you can resume your normal daily activities immediately following the treatments. Many patients say the treatment feels like a hot stone massage.  Venus Freeze is ideal for mothers who would like to tighten the loose skin after pregnancy and for anyone who has recently lost a lot of weight and now has sagging skin. Venus Freeze also helps people who have recently undergone liposuction because it helps the healing process and smoothes out the lumps.

    

Acne Treatment

The acne procedure utilizes a broad spectrum of light, including blue light to target sebaceous gland bacteria and infrared light to thermally dry the sebaceous glands. The radio frequency will have an added effect by improving the texture of your skin.

 

 

HCG DIET 

Introduction

Medical professionals are hailing weight loss with HCG as a major breakthrough in losing weight and stubborn body fat. This advanced weight loss program has a 100% SUCCESS RESULT FOR PEOPLE WHO FOLLOW THE PLAN EXACTLY! It is a physician approved program that is completely safe and has been developed to help people lose weight and keep it off.

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone present in both males and females. It is the hormone produced by pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy. During pregnancy, the substance almost completely controls the woman’s metabolic functions. In non-pregnant persons, research suggests HCG similarly increases the metabolism and promotes lipolytic (fat burning) activity. The use of HCG as a diet aid was first discussed in a report that Dr. A.T.W. Simeons published in 1954. The report did gain some attention at that time, but it took several years before the use of HCG with dieting really started to catch on. Today, an increasing number of dieters are turning to HCG to help them lose those unwanted pounds.

Dr. Simeons noticed that his patients could drastically reduce their caloric intake without experiencing irritability, hunger pains, headaches, or weakness while also taking HCG. As Dr. Simeons continued his research, he found that an HCG injection did more than just help his patients lose weight. In fact, he found that the injections also helped to naturally reshape his patient’s bodies even if they did not engage in exercise while on the diet. Dr. Simeons concluded that this was because the patients lost their fat tissue from adipose tissue accumulations, which made changes in the body shape more visible.

What people were losing wasn’t simply weight, but fat, a particular kind of fat. We generally think of fat as just “fat,” but in fact there are three distinct kinds of fat, two of which we need, and one we don’t. If you’ve tried dieting, perhaps diet after diet, and found that the weight comes back, it’s because diets can’t rid us of the one kind of fat that most needs to be eliminated.

Of the three kinds of fat, structural fat is essential because it cushions our organs. Then there’s the kind of fat that gives us a reserve of energy, fueling the body between meals. But a third kind of fat-the unsightly fat that ruins our appearance-is totally unhealthy. This unwanted fat is not only unhealthy, it just happens to be almost impossible to lose. It can be mobilized only in times of starvation and pregnancy. In a non-pregnant state, HCG as a weight-loss aid helps reduce the craving for food by making stored fat available for metabolism, thus aiding in the ability to adhere to a rigid diet program. HCG accesses unnecessary fat stored in the body just as it does in early pregnancy.

Abnormal fat deposits disappear; the double chin, potbelly and fat around hips and thighs are the first to go. HCG does not deplete subcutaneous or other essential fat.

Most HCG Weight-loss participants see a loss in girth (inches) before they see any substantive drop in the scales. When properly supervised, the result is rapid weight loss and improved body shape during and after treatment.

Reshaping of body contour is quickly noticeable in those patients who struggle with fat located in buttocks and hips area. As the HCG metabolizes stored body fat, about 2000 calories are released into the bloodstream, thus allowing for a low calorie per day diet without experiencing fatigue weakness or hunger.

The genius of Dr. Simeons was to recognize that HCG triggers the body to burn this type of fat. It appears to reset the hypothalamus gland, along with areas of the brain that regulate a variety of hormones, blood sugar, metabolism, blood pressure, and other key body functions.

What are the benefits?

 Dr. Simeons states it makes your body mobilize fat out of the fat storage locations. Weight loss comes from adipose tissue, not muscle. And HCG does not strip the body of vitamins and minerals. And if you follow the diet, you can keep that weight off!

* Assists patients in shedding up to 30 pounds over a 5-6 week period.

* Assists in the reduction of cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

* Dramatically reduces the appearance of cellulite.

* Results in the disappearance of food cravings.

* Increases energy levels.

* Decreases blood pressure.

* Improves skin elasticity

How does it work?

The HCG diet consists of daily injections or oral drops of HCG. It is similar to what a diabetic person does when they inject insulin daily. The oral form is simply put into your mouth with a dropper. In addition to this, you will need to reduce your caloric intake to just 500 calories per day. Generally you eat a meal of lean meat, chicken, fish, shrimp or lobster, one fruit and one vegetable, two times a day. (There are a few exceptions.) Obviously, you would be able to lose weight with a 500-calorie diet even if you weren’t getting HCG hormone treatments. If you cut back to this many calories without the help of HCG, however, you will likely be very hungry and lose muscle as well as fat. Obviously, this isn’t healthy and will not result in a toned body.

What can I expect?

There are no age or sex limits, and tolerance to the treatment is excellent. Weight loss is safe and comfortable for patients, provided that they meticulously follow the prescribed diet. Any deviation from the protocol is likely to not yield the desired results. Even minor deviations may cause unwanted setbacks. At the conclusion of the diet patients should have lost an average of 0.5 – 1.0 pounds per day. You will lose fat mostly in the waist and stomach. You’ll reduce any fat pads like a double chin and love handles.You’ll lose that inner knee and thigh fat with no sagging skin. The diet actually helps you do body contouring without exercise. HCG makes it easier for you to cut back calories because it acts as an appetite suppressant. During the first few days of the program, you might experience mild hunger after reducing your food consumption. By the second week, however, most people find small servings of food to be quite satisfying. This is partially because the HCG helps to release calories from your stored fat and these calories then circulate throughout your body. In addition, your hypothalamus makes adjustments to your metabolic rate, which helps you feel full faster.

What happens to the body after years of dieting?

Diet programs can have good results if a change in lifestyle and eating habits is achieved. How many of us have been on a diet, lost a good amount of weight, then gained it back? Most diets consist of reducing calories. After years of doing this, the body is in chaos and doesn’t know what to do any more. This can slow your metabolism and affect your hormones. Pretty soon as another diet is introduced, the body will hold on to the fat and not let it go because it knows it’s diet time again.
