Looking beautiful doesn’t have to take a lot of time. We’re all busy, and most of us don’t necessarily have hours to spend at the spa or want to spend days recovering from elective surgery. Luckily, you don’t have to have an abundance of time in order to get the youthful look you desire or endure dramatic procedures. Turns out there are optimal options for a quick lift with the best results.
SmartLipo has become a popular treatment that enhances skin retraction and improves the contour of your body. How does it work? Easy. “It utilizes a fine fiber that delivers multiple wavelengths of laser light beneath the skin to help liquefy the fat and vertically tighten the skin,” says Dr. Joseph Hunstad, a board certified plastic surgeon. With this treatment the skin and underlying muscles are tightened giving the skin better adherence to tissues, which leaves the surface of the skin tight with more even tone.
Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing
CO2 Fractional Resurfacing has so many uses: It targets age spots, sun spots, wrinkles, facial redness and acne scars. This treatment rejuvenates the skin with little downtime. The treatment uses a carbon dioxide laser to stimulate collagen growth and improve a variety of skin conditions. A session lasts about 20 to 30 minutes, and some redness will dissipate after five to six days.
CoolSculpting is a revolutionary body sculpting technique that uses a unique process to eliminate fat. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target and crystallize fat cells and freezes the unwanted fat cells. Then the crystalized cells gradually die off and are naturally removed from the body with no needles, no incisions and no recovery period. The greatest feature of this treatment is the results are permanent.
Botox. It’s an oldie but a goodie. All it takes is about 15 minutes yet lasts between four to six months depending on the patient. The injections block nerve impulses to overactive muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles.
