Difference in CoolSculpting Applicators Through The Years

Since the advent of Coolsculpting, the FDA cleared fat-freezing technology, legions of women and men have been able to eliminate unwanted pockets of fat through its controlled cooling process, painlessly, comfortably, and quite easily.  In fact, this non-surgical treatment has become one of the best non-invasive, fat reducing solutions on the market. It’s especially ideal for women who want an alternative to painful fat eliminating procedures like liposuction or other surgical treatments. Particularly when their past efforts of grueling workouts and sensible eating still won’t budge the fat. Remarkably, Coolsculpting has been able to get rid of the fat with a few painless treatments.

The Coolsculpting technology works by using special applicators to target fat cells, freeze them until they crystallize and eliminate them through the body’s natural processes. By targeting specific areas of fat, the surrounding tissue remains undisturbed, making Coolsculpting safe and effective for people who only want to work on problem areas.  With its increasing demand, the Coolsculpting procedure has seen continued improvement with the implementation of better and more effective applicators to target more areas. This was not only a win for Coolsculpting, but a win for the millions of people who are losing the battle of the bulge in particular areas on their bodies. Now, they’re able to reduce more fat and get a contoured body.

When Coolsculpting was first introduced, the applicator was designed to target large areas like the stomach and thighs, but there were other areas that were difficult to slim like the flanks, bra and back fat, the upper arm area and underneath the buttocks. So, in 2016 and 2017 Coolsculpting rolled out special interchangeable contours with their CoolAdvantage system that can individually address each problem area. The new special applicators have a smaller cup size to treat smaller areas. There’s also a reduced treatment time per session, so patients can get back to their daily lives even quicker than with the original Coolsculpting applicator.

There’s the CoolMax for the lower and upper abdomen, CoolCore for the contours of the abdomen, CoolCurve for the flanks, CoolFit for the inner thigh and the Petite applicator for the upper arms. Each treatment takes about 35 minutes and patients experience little to no side effects.
These significant changes in the applicators over the years have helped to give women and men more contours and tone in the many areas that they struggle with. So, if you have stubborn fat that won’t shed from diet and exercise, come see us at Advanced Skin Fitness for your next Coolsculpting Treatment.

We’re open 10AM to 6PM Tuesday – Friday and 10AM – 4PM on Saturdays for your convenience. Drop by and talk with us.

Why Coolsculpting Is Like Magic for Men

Guys, it looks like you’re having a tough time getting back that chiseled body you used to show off at the beach. What happened to the days when your pecs were like pow! Dude, you had a killer six pack! But now you’re not as tight as you used to be. In fact, it looks like you have the makings of a beer belly and that dreaded spare tire. You even have man breasts. Well, you’ve been pumping extra iron at the gym and running like a maniac, so what’s up? Perhaps age or hormonal changes are having an impact on your weight and that’s why you’re getting fat deposits in places you never worried about before.  Look, it happens to a lot of fellas. Luckily, there’s coolsculpting, which could be the best solution for this problem.
The coolsculpting procedure is a safe non-invasive treatment that targets excess fat by gently cooling the problem area, freezing the fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue, destroying those cells, then naturally expelling them from the body. It’s FDA approved, painless and requires no recovery period. For some, there might be a slight irritation after the procedure, but it will subside pretty quickly.  The results are amazing. You should notice some contouring from the reduction of fat in about 3 to 4 weeks. For maximum results, you should have a treatment every 4 weeks for about 3 to 6 months.

Hey, women aren’t the only ones who struggle with weight loss. Men have some of the same challenges that women have but in different areas of the body. Men have a divergent biological makeup from women, so they tend to have problems with their midsection, leading to heavy bellies and love handles. Women tend to have more trouble in multiple areas like the abdomen, flanks, bra and back fat area, thighs, the upper arm area and underneath the buttocks. Coolsculpting can reduce fat in all of these areas.

Coolsculpting even has special interchangeable contours with their CoolAdvantage system that can individually address each problem area. Using these special applicators speeds up the treatment process to about 35 minutes and can produce greater results.
After a man has the coolsculpting treatment, his stomach should be flatter to show previous six pack abs. His chest should be more defined and chiseled. The love handles should be eliminated to reveal a tighter back and his confidence should be renewed.

 

Coolsculpting not only can give you the dream body that you want, it can give you the self-assurance you once had before you began having problems with your weight. But, if you want to maintain that new enviable physique, you should keep up the exercise and eat sensible meals.

 

So, soon you’ll be saying “so long” to the inadequacy you feel about that stubborn body fat. Coolsculpting is just what you need to make you leaner and feel more masculine.

So, if you’re a man and you want to reduce fat in those areas that many men struggle with, call us at Advanced Skin Fitness so we can help you get off the fat for good.

 

We’re open 10AM to 6PM Tuesday – Friday and 10AM – 4PM on Saturdays for your convenience. Drop by and talk with us.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

When the aging process begins, most people can expect it to be downright uncomfortable. It sometimes starts with subtle signs like aching joints, wrinkles and sagging skin that get even worse as you get older. It’s not pretty, but unfortunately, it’s inevitable. Chances are your hyaluronic acid levels are on the decline and the evidence is in your not-so-limber joints and wrinkly skin. In fact, as we get older this continued drop especially contributes to the effects of aging.

So what is hyaluronic acid and why does the depletion of it cause this kind of damage to the body? Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that’s significantly present in the soft connective tissues,  the fluid that surrounds the eyes and the skin tissue. You can find a high concentration of it in the cartilage and the synovial fluid that covers the knees, hips and other moving joints. As we age and we begin to lose it, people often develop pain in these joints and lose elasticity in the skin.

If you’re genetically predisposed to the early loss of hyaluronic acid, you may see the untimely effects of aging. Smoking and deficiencies in zinc and magnesium could considerably increase the loss of hyaluronic acid, but there are ways to counteract this loss. You can add hyaluronic acid back into the body.

The benefits of hyaluronic acid are extensive. It’s formulated as a gel that’s commonly injected into the joints of arthritis patients to alleviate pain and inflammation. It provides an extra cushioning in the joints, which creates more flexibility and comfort when bending. Patients can also take it orally so that it increases the body’s natural production of it.

Because it corresponds well with the body, hyaluronic acid is used as a filler to smooth out wrinkles in the skin. It’s injected in the lips and around the eyes to increase volume and elasticity in the skin. It also brings water to the surface to return suppleness and buoyancy.

Hyaluronic acid can be used as a skin moisturizer to plump and hydrate aging skin. When applied to specific areas of the skin, it can help to heal wounds, skin ulcers and burns.

There are multiple advantages to using hyaluronic acid, particularly, if you want to relieve pain and reverse some of the effects of aging. So, if your joints are aching and you’re losing the flexibility you once had, or if you want to reduce wrinkles and lines, come by Advanced Skin Fitness and we’ll have you feeling better and looking better.

We’re open 10AM to 6PM Tuesday – Friday and 10AM – 4PM on Saturdays for your convenience. Drop by and talk with us.

Are Your Tattoos Hurting Your Professional Image?

 

You’re ready for your BIG interview and you can feel it your bones, the job is yours. Why not? Your resume is impressive and you just purchased a new suit for your meeting. You’re all set. But what about the thorny rose that you have tattooed on your neck? Sure, it looks mad cool, but it may not go over well with your interviewer, especially if you’ve applied for a position that requires you to perform in a professional work environment. Your first thought is to just cover it up, but let’s get real, there’s no covering your tat up. It’s just too prominent, so you need to think about having it permanently removed.

You may be thinking, what’s the big deal? Most people you know are inked somewhere on their bodies. Even your grandma has one. Gone are the days when tattoos were isolated to truckers, bikers and military men. Nowadays you can expect people from all ages and professions to be “tatted” up.  They get them to express their personalities and style or to make a statement. Now, yours needs to go. Actually, if you insist on keeping the tattoo, it could compromise your chances of securing a job, getting a raise, landing a promotion, or retaining your employment. What’s more important, the artwork on your skin or your dream job?

More conservative jobs occupations like banks, accounting, retail, customer service and health care would prefer that you don’t have tattoos in plain view. They can be distracting and sometimes offensive if there’s a controversial symbol involved. Some exceptions are made if you’re not interacting with the public, but if you want to increase your chances of getting the job, have the tattoo professionally removed could be your best bet.

For the most effective and fast tattoo removal, you should try Cutera Enlighten System. It’s a laser treatment that uses two different types of laser beams, combined with two different types of laser pulses. Fast laser pulses break down the colors from the tattoo ink into small particles and the body will naturally absorb the color through the skin. All colors of the ink can be removed, even solid tattoos and ones with shadows and fading.

Compared to earlier tattoo removal procedures, which take about ten to thirty sessions, it takes less time to remove the tattoo with Cutera Enlighten System. In fact, in about four to six sessions, the tattoo should be cleared. The cost is lower too, averaging about $300-$500 per session. If you only need a few sessions, it’ll be easier on your wallet.

And if you’re concerned about pain or discomfort, it’s pretty painless. You’ll feel like you’re getting snapped with a rubber band, which involves very little discomfort. Some patients worry about scarring after the treatment, but if you follow the proper after-care instructions, you won’t need to worry about any scarring at all. There’s no downtime and no side effects if you avoid direct sunlight. Make sure you use sunscreen and eat healthy meals, so the tattoo particles can be naturally expelled from your body.
Now, do your best to secure the job you’ve been waiting for and get that tattoo removed with Cutera Enlighten System at Advanced Skin Fitness.

We’re open 10AM to 6PM Tuesday – Friday and 10AM – 4PM on Saturdays for your convenience. Drop by and talk with us.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder – How Cosmetic Professionals Respond to the Condition

Who doesn’t want to be perfect? Most people know that correcting every minor flaw on the body is virtually impossible. But a person who is afflicted with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) doesn’t quite see it that way. BDD is a condition that’s characterized by a fixation on defects in one’s physical appearance. Many people with BDD consistently have cosmetic procedures to correct imperfections that others don’t notice at all.

According to a study published in the Netherlands’ February 2017 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and cosmetic doctors have had varied responses to patients who may have BDD. A group of these aesthetic specialists participated in an online survey in multiple-choice format. From the results, there were significant differences between the three groups.

Although about two-thirds of the participants were confronted with one to five cases of BDD a year, these professionals obtained most of their information about BDD through conferences, lectures, and literature.

With more examination of the data retrieved, dermatologists rarely addressed unhealthy body image issues with their patients. Cosmetic doctors revealed that they always discussed body image with their patients. Plastic surgeons always notified their patients if they suspected BDD. Dermatologists sometimes communicated to their patients that they were concerned about possible BDD. Plastic surgeons suggested that patients who presented with BDD should see a psychiatrist or psychologist prior to having a cosmetic procedure. In fact, they declined treatment to a patient with BDD, until the patient was cleared by a behavioral specialist to have the procedure.

Cosmetic doctors who mentioned BDD suspicions to a patient were threatened with litigation more than plastic surgeons or dermatologists.

Plastic surgeons were more inclined to agree that cosmetic procedures served as sort of a psychotherapy/psychosurgery for the BDD patients. Cosmetic doctors shared that if they thought a patient needed a specific aesthetic procedure they would inform the patient.

Between all three groups: plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and cosmetic doctors, they were familiar with BDD, but they had little to no experience with it firsthand, so it would be difficult to automatically identify BDD in a patient. Therefore; it was recommended by the researchers that cosmetic professionals should be educated on BDD in order to diagnose and understand the treatment of BDD.

At Advanced Skin Fitness, if you have a healthy body image, we’ll be glad to perform any one of our cosmetic procedures that suit your needs.
We’re open 10AM to 6PM Tuesday – Friday and 10AM – 4PM on Saturdays for your convenience. Drop by and talk with us.

Why Coolsculpting Works Wonders for Women

For women, unwanted fat can be an albatross. Dresses are way too tight, jeans won’t zip up without cutting off your circulation and your bras are making your skin bulge on your back. But that’s not all. Your upper arms flap with each movement and your flanks have more flesh than you’re comfortable with. Now you have what is more affectionately known as love handles, but there’s no love for this kind of stubborn fat. So what’s happening? Weight just won’t melt off like it used to. It’s not like you haven’t made tremendous efforts. In fact, you’ve decreased your fat intake and you’ve added a couple more miles on your treadmill run, but the fat refuses to give. Why? Some fat, like post pregnancy or age-related fat, is just diet and exercise resistant. Sure, it’s a real let down, but Coolsculpting can solve this problem for women.

For women who want to avoid painful fat reducing procedures like liposuction or other invasive treatments, Coolsculpting is an ideal non-surgical solution. Coolsculpting is an FDA-cleared patented process that gently cools targeted sections of fat, freezes fat cells without disturbing the surrounding tissue, destroys them and then naturally eliminates the dead cells from the body.
Coolsculpting is specifically one of the best fat reducing treatments for women because it can target women’s problem areas like the abdomen, flanks, bra and back fat area, thighs, the upper arm area and underneath the buttocks. Coolsculpting even has special interchangeable contours with their CoolAdvantage system that can individually address each problem area. Using these special applicators speeds up the treatment process and can be even more effective.
These applicators are CoolMax for the lower and upper abdomen, CoolCore for the contours of the abdomen, CoolCurve for the flanks, CoolFit for the inner thigh and the Petite applicator for the upper arms. Each treatment takes about 35 minutes and produces little to no side effects. Patients may notice a little redness, but it subsides shortly after having each procedure, so they can return to their everyday routine without going through a recovery period. In about three weeks patients should notice results.
After a woman has the Coolsculpting treatment, her body will be more toned and contoured. So say goodbye to those feelings of embarrassment and defeat. Coolsculpting is the answer to your fat reduction struggles. It’s safe, easy and it produces the results you’ll be more than happy with.

So, if you’re a woman and you want to reduce fat in those areas that most women struggle with, call us at Advanced Skin Fitness. We’ll help you freeze unwanted fat and easily get rid of it the comfortable and easy way.

Coolsculpting Has Been FDA Cleared For Upper Arm Fat

Coolsculpting gets two thumbs up! Well, why not?  It’s done wonders for millions of people who have sought to rid unwanted fat from their abdomen, thighs, and waist. It gently cools targeted fat cells, destroys them without damaging the surrounding tissue and naturally rids them from the body. So, it’s understandable why coolsculpting is a go-to treatment for people who want a non-invasive solution to shedding stubborn fat that won’t budge from diet and exercise. But what about the fat on your upper arms? No worries. The FDA has cleared coolsculpting for upper arm fat. Now it’s the only noninvasive fat removal technology cleared by the FDA to address the upper arm area. It won’t be available until Spring 2017, but that’s just around the corner!

Look, you’re not alone. About 50% of people interested in coolsculpting are interested in reducing upper arm fat. Actually, the arms are the third most popular area for consideration of noninvasive fat reduction. Now, because of the overwhelming demand, ZELTIQ, the developers of the Coolsculpting technology, have announced the launching of the CoolAdvantage Petite applicator. It’s a welcome addition to the Coolsculpting CoolAdvantage system of applicators, which are specially designed interchangeable contours that treat the upper arms and other specific parts of the body. Not only do these applicators make the coolsculpting procedure even more effective, they reduce the treatment time to about 35 minutes, which is about half the normal treatment time.
Some of the other applicators in the CoolAdvantage Coolsculpting system address multiple areas that store unwanted fat in the submental area, thigh, abdomen, flank, bra and back fat area and underneath the buttocks. These applicators are CoolMax for the lower and upper abdomen, CoolCore for the contours of the abdomen, CoolCurve for the flanks and CoolFit for the inner thigh. Now there’s Petite applicator for the upper arms. There’s little to no discomfort involved and results are noticeable after about 3 weeks.

Okay, so the love handles are gone and your stomach can finally fit into that snug pair of jeans. Yup, Coolsculpting did the trick! Now it’s time to address the fat on your upper arms? Those overhead presses and bicep curls are just not toning your arms enough to eliminate the excess fat. It’s time to consider Coolsculpting CoolAdvantage Petite to freeze and get rid of it comfortably. So, make sure you make an appointment with Advanced Skin Fitness for Coolsculpting CoolAdvantage Petite in the spring.
