There are certain times throughout the year when we pay a little, or a lot, more attention to our appearance. We want to look our best for special occasions, may become mindful of our shape before summertime, and desire a refresher before the holidays. One of the busiest seasons of the year is about to end, which has us looking forward with that New Year, New You mindset. If your holiday season has left you looking and feeling a bit depleted, we have a few tricks up our sleeves that might help revive your skin and body. Here, we offer a few easy treatment suggestions that can have you sailing right into the new year with a sense of exuberance.
ReFirme™ treatments are one of our two powerful skin-tightening services. This procedure combines infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency to safely and effectively tighten the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. Immediate improvement is noticed thanks to instantaneous collagen tightening. Long-term improvement occurs as the body remodels collagen with healthy new production over time.
For more profound results, some of our patients choose to address their loose, lax skin through Triniti skin-tightening. This process combines the power of the Refirme system with FotoFacial RF and Matrix IR Fractional, each of which targets specific concerns. Triniti is more comprehensive in its targeting of laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, and pigment concerns caused by aging and sun damage.
The loss of volume and firmness in facial tissues is not the only thing about our appearance that changes with age. For many of our patients, this time of year motivates them to address the issue of stubborn fat. Maybe you’ve been following a diet and exercise routine that you’ve carefully developed to reach a goal, and yet you’ve got a problem area. You’re not alone. Weight loss is not all that difficult, but body contouring can be. In our Pottsville and Hazleton offices, we’ve got options to correct those areas.
Liposonix® is a nonsurgical body contouring treatment that employs high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to permanently destroy unwanted fat cells. The body naturally clears the broken down fat cell products over time. Liposonix® treatment takes about an hour. While results do not occur overnight, patients realize about one size difference as the body clears the unwanted fat. This is a huge benefit of Liposonix, that one treatment, taking about one hour, can make you one size smaller.
For more pronounced body contouring, patients might consider “tickle liposuction.” Technically, the procedure is called Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL). It is performed using an FDA-approved device that utilizes an air pressure powered cannula (tiny metal tube) to create a patented triple motion of piston-like micro oscillation, rotation, and vibration. This increases efficacy and comfort while minimizing disruption to surrounding tissue.
With a new year ahead, there is a lot to look forward to. More beauty is one example! Contact us to schedule your visit.
