  • Cellulaze™ + Sculpsure™: The Cellulite & Fat Blaster Combo

    Ridding yourself of excess body fat is certainly no picnic. Eating right, staying active and limiting stress can all help, but sometimes that is simply not enough. Fat that builds up in your arms & legs and around your derriere can be stubborn and resistant to these positive lifestyle changes, especially as we age. Not to mention the other adverse effects of carrying excess body fat like the accumulation of cellulite. Cellulite is caused by fat found beneath the skin that appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to dimple and ripple. It plagues roughly between 85%-98% of teenage women or older as well as some men. And while it may not be medically harmful, cellulite can be extremely unpleasant and difficult to alleviate. I understand that Summer means you want to be out looking your best so I’ve devised a combination service of fat reduction and cellulite treatment that will help you shine your brightest.

    Cellulaze™ cellulite reduction is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted procedure that battles the root causes of cellulite growth under the skin. It is FDA-approved and has been clinically proven to increase your skin’s natural smoothness for a healthy look that lasts. While other treatments focus on negating the cosmetic effects of cellulite, Cellulaze™ treats the fibrous bands beneath the skin, while also thickening and adding elasticity that replenishes the skin to its original feel and smoothness. Cellulaze™ is the first and only treatment that targets the structural problems underneath the skin that cause cellulite, to give you proven, longer-lasting results from just one treatment. Local anesthetic is applied before all Cellulaze™ treatments.

    About Sculpsure™

    Sculpsure™ fat reduction is the newest technology in fat reduction. This FDA-approved, non-invasive lipolysis procedure that targets excess fat that has accrued on the flanks and abdomen. It is a state-of-the-art, controlled light-based technology perfect for patients looking to get rid of stubborn fat fast and effectively. The laser used selectively targets adipose tissue (fat) below the skin. Over time, the body natural eliminates the fat cells with positive results may be seen as soon as 6 weeks following treatment. Sculpsure™ can treat multiple areas at once to help ensure a smooth and speedy treatment. Multiple treatments can be administered to the same area over time if required. Best of all, Sculpsure™ treatments are quick (as fast as 25 minutes), virtually painless and require no downtime for recovery. Sculpsure™ fat reduction treatments do not require local anesthetic.

    Beyond BOTOX®: Popular Nonsurgical Treatments for Men

    As I’ve previously stated in my BOTOX® for men blog post, the market for nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for men is absolutely booming right now. The number of cosmetic operations performed annually on men has increased 325% since 1997. Though that figure includes surgical procedures, the market for nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for men alone exceeded $5 billion in the US last year. Regardless of past notions or attitudes, these kinds of cosmetic procedures have just become part of the routine for anyone striving to show their best self to the world.

    Beyond BOTOX® Popular Nonsurgical Treatments for MenSculpSure™

    Sculpsure™ fat reduction and similar treatments for men accounted for $232 million in procedures last year alone. Sculpsure™ is FDA-approved and perfect for guys looking to get rid of stubborn fat quickly and effectively. Due to their non-invasive nature, Sculpsure™ treatments are quick, cause only minimal pain and require no downtime for recovery. During treatment, a laser heats the fat cells causing them to detach from body tissue. Results may be seen as soon as 6 weeks following treatment.

    Other FDA-Approved Facial Fillers

    Facial fillers for men accounted for an astonishing $2.7 billion in the US in 2015. While BOTOX® and similar injections accounted for roughly half of that, there are a plethora of other available products and treatments for men to choose from including:

    Restylane® – A treatment designed to reduce deep facial wrinkles and remove facial lines. Perfect for any guy trying restore volume, smooth away the appearance of facial lines and rejuvenate skin. Composed of specially synthesized hyaluronic acid, a compound naturally occurring in the body, Restylane® is both safe natural.

    Juvederm® – A facial filler produced from hyaluronic acid, similar to Restylane®. Perfect for treating deeper wrinkles on the face or areas that have lost volume due to age. Results typically last up to 6 months.

    Dysport® – Developed as an alternative to BOTOX®. Dysport® works by injecting a highly purified protein into the face, which relaxes the facial muscles and leaves you with smoother, replenished skin. While Dysport® is used primarily for the treatment of wrinkles caused by expression lines, ask your healthcare provider if it can be used for treatment of migraines, eye and neck muscle spasms and excessive armpit sweating.

    Laser Hair Removal

    Laser Hair Removal is perfect for any guy who wants to achieve a smooth, hairless body without the pains of constantly shaving or waxing. Last year men in the US spent roughly $289 million on such treatments, a figure that is steadily increasing annually. Laser hair removal uses laser light energy to penetrate the hair shaft, actually killing the hair follicle beneath the skin. Perfect for men interested in removing or reducing hair on back, chest, stomach, shoulders and genital area.

    Brotox®: The Men & Botox® Combo

    Botox® has many fans these days. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported over 6.5 million Botox® treatments performed in 2015 alone. While these statistics don’t break down the differences between male and female patients, I can attest to the increase in men getting Botox® from my own experience. In the spirit of giving popular trends nicknames, Brotox® is what we use to describe men who are fans of facial rejuvenation with minimally-invasive wrinkle-reducing Botox® treatment. In case you’re new to the Brotox world, I wanted to share some of the best features and why more men should jump on the benefits of Botox®.

    In more recent trends, men aren’t just getting Botox® by themselves. Many come to get treatments with their partners (male and female), friends, and even coworkers. Lots of men receive Botox® as gifts and even more appreciate the results especially in those times when preparing for major life events – like getting married. Pre-wedding Botox® has become a popular treatment for two, because couples like to come in together to smooth out their facial appearance before the big day.

    Botox® treatment isn’t as intimidating as some may think – it’s just a quick, short series of injections into the upper third area of the face you’re most concerned about and nearly painless. You’re in and out in as little as 20 minutes and best of all – you don’t have to miss work or have the rest of your day interrupted. Botox® is also a great combination treatment used to keep the face looking youthful after undergoing facial plastic surgery. Whether prepping for a special occasion or sticking to a regular routine, Botox® treatments are popular because they continue to work for lots of men and woman for up to four months (it’s also worth mentioning it’s FDA-approved for ages 18-65).

    This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the many nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures men have come to know and appreciate. Muscle-relaxing Dysport® and Xeomin®, plus dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® offer some excellent benefits of their own – so much so that they deserve their own time in the spotlight.
