Botox Before and After | How does it work?

As the #1 selling treatment for improving the look of forehead lines, crows feet, and frown lines, Botox is perhaps the most studied cosmetic procedure in the world. Botox treatments are safe, effective, quick, and FDA-approved. In one short 10-minute treatment, you can achieve the anti-aging effects displayed in the Botox before and after images above.

Botox cosmetic injectable primarily consists of a neurotoxic protein called “Botulinum Toxin.” When administered in a therapeutic application, it works beneath the skin’s surface to relax facial muscles. These overactive facial muscles make repeated contractions every time you make facial expressions such as frowning, squinting, smiling, or raising your eyebrows. These repeated actions continually fold and stretch the skin in these areas causing facial lines and wrinkles. Botox relaxes these underlying muscles and smoothes out years of expression lines formed on the skin’s surface. The result is a smoother, relaxed, and rejuvenated face.

However, while Botox before and after results are astonishing in their ability to cultivate a youthful appearance, it is not permanent. Over time the biodegradable ingredients are absorbed and eliminated by the body. For most patients, treatments administered every couple of months will assist in maintaining optimal wrinkle-reducing effects.

Botox Before and After | Achieve the Best Results

The essential factor in achieving Botox results you love is finding a skilled and experienced injector. Botox is a technique sensitive procedure. To obtain before and after results that are dramatic, yet natural, you need to consult with a provider practiced in the art of cosmetic enhancements.

Cryolipolysis
September 15, 2020

Cryolipolysis: Everything You Need to Know About Freezing Fat

Cryolipolysis is the process behind the most popular, non-invasive fat reduction treatment on the market, CoolSculpting. This technology reduces fat cells by exposing them to precisely controlled temperatures. Better known as freezing fat, Cryolipolysis is proven to reduce stubborn bulges that notoriously resist diet and exercise. It is the only safe and effective way to reduce fat cells. Results are natural and long-lasting. Common treatment areas include the belly, love handles, chin, upper arms, and more. Read on to learn more about Cryolipolysis and Cold Sculpting and how freezing fat can help change your entire physique.

The Discovery of Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis was first discovered by two Harvard scientists when they observed cheek fat reduction in children who sucked on popsicles. By following this phenomenon, they were able to develop the science of Cryolipolysis. One of the Harvard scientists, Dr. Manstein, explained the concept by saying, “Fat freezes at a higher temperature than water. Think of butter and water in the refrigerator – one is solid, the other remains liquid.” They realized that by exposing fat cells to cold temperatures, they could freeze them without freezing or damaging skin tissue. This is possible because skin cells are composed of mostly water. They have a much lower freezing temperature than underlying fat cells.

How Cryolipolysis Works

CoolSculpting reduces stubborn bulges by inducing Cryolipolysis. An applicator is used during treatments to isolate fat deposits such as belly fat and expose them to precisely controlled cooling. The temperatures of CoolSculpting treatments are cold enough to freeze subcutaneous fat, but not cold enough to harm the surrounding tissue or skin. When the fat cells are frozen, they crystallize, and the membrane ruptures. Once the membrane ruptures, the cell can no longer do its job of storing fat. When this happens, the cell dies and eventually processes out of the body as a form of waste. Several weeks after your treatments, the body will naturally gather the dead cells and dispel them via the lymphatic system. Once they have been removed from the body, they can never regrow. CoolSculpting provides long-lasting fat reduction thanks to the innovative science of Cryolipolysis.

Is Cryolipolysis Right for Me?

To effectively reap the positive benefits of CoolSculpting, it is crucial to determine if you are the right candidate for the Cryolipolysis procedure. This fat reduction treatment works best on localized fat deposits on men and women who eat healthily and work out consistently but still struggle with stubborn fat cells. Cryolipolysis is not a weight-loss treatment and should never be used to treat obesity.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost? Defining CoolSculpting Prices

People search the internet asking how much does CoolSculpting cost? It is a valid question since fat freezing is the #1 noninvasive fat reduction treatment in the world.  Yet, the overall cost of CoolSculpting treatments vary per patient, depending upon their specific treatment plan. Read on to learn what determines CoolSculpting prices and how to save money on your fat reduction treatments

The CoolSculpting Treatment

To understand CoolSculpting prices, it is essential to comprehend how the fat freezing process works. To start, the Advanced Rejuvenation Center in Purchase, NY, will place a single CoolSculpting applicator over a stubborn bulge. This applicator then draws subcutaneous fat cells to the surface and freezes them to death, employing controlled cooling. Depending on the size of the applicator, this procedure takes between 30 to 90 minutes to complete. One cooling session, using a single applicator, constitutes a cycle.

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

CoolSculpting prices include the number of cooling cycles and the type of applicator used during that cooling session. Mirrored treatments, such as love handles, require two applicators—one per flank. This results in two cycles.

The Shape and Size of the Applicator

CoolSculpting applicators come in various shapes and sizes, each designed to contour specific areas of the body. This provides a lot of versatility in the fat freezing process. The number and size of applicators used to treat particular areas depending on the patient’s body size and type. For freezing belly fat, one patient may require the use of two small applicators. Another individual may need one large applicator. Combining one large and one small applicator offers an additional treatment option.  During your complimentary consultation, your CoolSculpting provider will professionally assess your body size and type.

The sizes of applicators vary per price. A large applicator covers double the treatment area of a small applicator. Thus, one large applicator will cost double that of a single cycle with a small applicator.

Specialty applicators add another dimension to CoolSculpting. They target specific areas of the body.   For example, the CoolMini treats the submental region and is excellent in tacking neck fat and double chins. Since a CoolMini is a specialty applicator cost of a single cycle differs from other applicators.

Cold Sculpt

Cold Sculpt | Freeze Away Fat | CoolSculpting

Millions of men and women Cold Sculpt their fat away for a slim, contoured physique. Also known as CoolSculpting, this revolutionary body contouring treatment reduces stubborn bulges without surgery. Read on to learn more about CoolSculpting and discover if freezing fat is right for you.

Why Millions Cold Sculpt

  • FDA cleared + safe + effective
  • A scientifically proven method of fat reduction
  • Reduces bulges without surgery
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Up to 25% fat reduction with one treatment
  • Quick, 35-minute treatments
  • Reduced-fat stays gone for good
  • Natural-looking results

What is Cold Sculpting?

Cold Sculpting refers to freezing away unwanted fat and sculpting attractive contours using the CoolSculpting treatment. Cold Sculpting utilizes precisely controlled cooling to target underlying fat cells. When exposed to freezing temperatures, fat cells crystallize, causing the cell’s membrane to rupture. Once ruptured, the fat cell can no longer store fat. The destroyed cells are collected by the lymphatic system and eventually processed out of the body in the form of waste. This fat reduction process is known as cryolipolysis (“cryo” means cold-induced, “lipo” refers to fat cells, and “lysis” implies cell death and removal.)

What Areas Can Be Cold Sculpted?

Coolsculpting can target nearly any stubborn fat deposit located on your body. Popular treatment areas to Cold  Sculpt include:

  • The abdomen (belly fat)
  • The flanks (love handles or hips)
  • The submental region (neck fat and double chins)
  • The upper arms
  • The thighs (inner thigh fat and outer thigh fat, commonly known as saddlebags)
  • Below the buttocks (commonly known as banana rolls)
  • The back
  • The armpit region (bra bulge)
  • And more…

Why is Cold Sculpting So Popular?

CoolSculpting is the leading non-invasive fat reduction treatment in the world. The main reason people love to Cold Sculpt is simply that it works. Scientific studies have consistently shown the efficacy and safety of this fat freezing treatment. Moreover, CoolSculpting is non-invasive. Unlike liposuction, which requires surgery, stitches, general anesthesia, and lengthy recovery times, cool Sculpting is painless, requires no invasive procedures, takes 35 minutes to complete, and allows patients to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. This makes CoolSculpting the ideal non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

Cold Sculpt Results

Cold sculpting yields results, as can be seen in before and after images. Results, however, are not immediate. The fat-freezing procedure requires 8 to 12 weeks for the lymphatic system to clear the destroyed fat cells from the body. Yet, once removed from the body, those fat cells are gone for good. This leads to long-lasting results.

Is Cold Sculpting Right for Me?

If you suffer from stubborn fat deposits that resist diet and exercise, cold Sculpting may be right for you. The best way to find out is to schedule a free consultation with the Advanced Rejuvenation Centers. As the premier body contouring provider in Purchase, NY, the Advanced Rejuvenation Centers can teach you more about the fat freezing procedure and help you determine if the body sculpting treatment is well suited for your body, your situation, and your aesthetic goals.

COOLSCULPTING, THE FAT YOU | WEIGHT GAINED DURING THE COVID OUTBREAK

 

The COVID 19 outbreak is changing our day to day living. This can be quite stressful. And if you are like most of us, when you are stuck at home, isolated with your family, and stressed out, you eat. You eat a lot. Mindlessly eat. Stress-eat. Boredom-eat. All kinds of eating.

Many individuals have voiced concern about gaining weight while sheltering in place. Fortunately, there are solutions for tackling stubborn bulges.

FAT REDUCTION OPTIONS

First and foremost, to lose weight, diet, and exercise. “But for many of us, diet and exercise are not always enough,” explains Liviu B. Saimovici, MD of the Advanced Rejuvenation Center. Stubborn bulges cling to our bodies despite our best efforts. For these tenacious fat deposits, your best option may be a fat reduction treatment.

Fat reduction treatments can be both invasive (like liposuction) or non-invasive. CoolSculpting is the world’s most popular way to reduce fat without surgery. “The advanced fat freezing procedure eliminates stubborn fat cells using Cryolipolysis,” explains Dr. Saimovici. Referring to cold-induced fat cell destruction, Cryolipolysis freezes stubborn fat cells to death. The frozen fat cells rupture, losing their ability to store fat. Rendered useless to the body, the destroyed fat cells are collected and excreted as waste. Once fat cells exit the body, they do not come back. Nor are they replaced. This leads to a long-term reduction of fat at the treatment spot.

COOLSCULPTING AT HOME

You may be tempted while sheltering in place, but do not attempt any of the DIY CoolSculpting methods that are available on the internet. CoolSculpting at home doesn’t work. Plus, it’s dangerous. “Placing icepacks on your belly fat will not reduce the bulge. It takes the precisely controlled cooling and suction mechanism (to draw fat cells to the surface of the skin) available with the CoolSculpting machine to safely and effectively freeze your fat,” says Dr. Saimovici.

GET STARTED ON COOLSCULPTING NOW

Before anyone receives a CoolSculpting treatment, they must be deemed a good candidate during a pre-treatment consultation. This in-person assessment may be impossible for many of us, especially as medical spas around the country are shuttering their doors in compliance with current quarantine regulations, or out of an abundance of caution.

Fortunately, Advanced Rejuvenation Center, the leading provider of CoolSculpting in Purchase, NY, is offering FREE virtual consultations. These consultations are conducted online with Dr. Saimovici or one of our body contouring specialists. During your virtual meeting, you’ll learn more about the procedure, like CoolSculpting cost, get answers to all your questions, and learn if fat freezing is the ideal procedure for you.

coolsculpting
January 23, 2020

Rested and “Rejuvenated” after a short holiday break, the staff and I are quickly realizing, it’s CoolSculpting season! Our January schedule is full of CoolSculpting consultations. The most obvious reason for the increased interest in CoolSculpting is New Year’s resolutions. Many people have decided 2020 is the year to eat right, be active and get a jump start on obtaining a healthier body. Other consultations have come from newly engaged couples.We’ve learned that December is the most popular month to get engaged in the U.S.These brides-to-be (and grooms-to-be!) are thinking ahead to the biggest day in their lives and wanting to feel and look their best in their wedding attire.

When a patient calls us for the first time, they usually don’t know much about CoolSculpting, other than it is a nonsurgical fatloss treatment. These patients have many questions and some anxiety about what to expect. Our number one objective is to put their minds at ease. Being the owner and physician, I meet with every patient during their initial consultation. During this meeting, wediscuss fat loss goals and body areas they are most excited to transform. We explain what to expect the day of treatment, the days following and when they can expect to see results. Along with a customized treatment plan,I want my patients to leave with an understanding of the science and proven technology behind CoolSculpting and why it the world’s #1 fat-reduction procedure.

Whatever the reason, whether a New year’s resolution, an upcoming wedding, or that summer will be upon us in 150 days, we want our patients to feel comfortable, confident and well informed about their decision to get CoolSculpting.

reduce your wrinkles

So, you’ve decided to reduce wrinkles — will you choose Botox® — or maybe Dysport® — or should you choose Xeomin®…?

Did you know that Botox, Dysport and Xeomin are three different brand names for injectable neuromodulators?

Neuromodulators work by temporarily paralyzing a targeted muscle area on the face to ease the appearance of wrinkles.

Although all three of these brands work to reduce wrinkles, they are not the same. The biggest difference between Xeomin and the others is that Xeomin contains only one ingredient: botulinum toxin A. It is referred to as a “naked injectable.”

An advantage of containing only one ingredient is that the proteins that may trigger a negative response by the immune system are removed, which may lead to fewer side effects. Xeomin is also the only one that does not need to be refrigerated during distribution.

Here at Advanced Rejuvenation Centers, we offer all three of these FDA approved brands. I have had great success with all three, but I am noticing that patients are gaining interest in Xeomin because it is the most pure of the three. It is also a good option for those patients who have stopped responding to Dysport and Botox.

summer-skin-care

Summer is upon us and many of us are focused on doing what is right for our bodies. We’ve started exercising, eating less and some of us have even opted for a truSculpt® iD body contouring procedure, for even more of a jump-start on our swimsuit-worthy bodies!

But what about our faces? Is your skin care routine summer-ready? This question has come up in our office several times in the past few weeks, with patients calling in to schedule our very popular IPL facial.

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a type of “laser” therapy used to treat wrinkles, spots, sun damage and other skin conditions. As wonderful and effective as it is, it is not a treatment to have during the summer months. Patients are advised to avoid prolonged sun exposure after having an IPL treatment for 4-6 weeks.

Summer skin care for your face

Fortunately, there are alternative, effective treatments that you can have right now.

One such treatment is a secret… actually the Secret RF, a micro-needling procedure that delivers energy below the surface to help revitalize and regenerate the skin. Patients looking to treat fine lines, wrinkles, photo-damage and/or scars are loving this procedure. There is little or no downtime, redness for the rest of the day being the most common, and in 1-2  treatments, you will notice your skin looking younger, smoother and more even.

Another year-round skincare treatment option we offer is Laser Genesis, a non-invasive laser technology to safely, naturally and effectively treat fine wrinkles, redness and acne scars. Over the course of 4-6 treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance.

As you can see, there are many treatment options for attainable healthy-looking, summer skin. In addition to whatever treatment you decide, remember to take care of your skin on a daily basis. Be sure to apply sunscreen everyday before going outdoors!

Happy Summer!

The reality of hair loss is that, for many, it’s out of their control, a genetic predisposition about which they can do little. However, those who have the baldness gene can make their hair fuller and healthier, and they can slow the rate of hair loss. Typically, it takes a combined effort, including steps you can take yourself as well as medical treatment. There are even some exciting new applications that show promise in the battle against baldness.

Today, let’s look at the options you have to combat hair loss:

Hair loss and nutrition

There’s no super food you can add to your game plan that will bring back lost hair, though if you’re living on fast food, you may accelerate thinning and lost hair. A well-balanced diet with a good range of essential nutrients is as necessary for hair maintenance as it is for any other system in your body. B vitamin deficiencies, in particular, can lead to poor hair growth, since these are essential for the development of new hair cells. A diet full of leafy greens, such as spinach, kale, and romaine lettuce, and lean proteins, including eggs, chicken, fish, and pork, will assure you have the B vitamin building blocks your hair needs.

Medications

The Food and Drug Administration has so far approved only two drugs to treat hair loss. Minoxidil, which is also used to treat high blood pressure, helps to slow the rate of hair loss. It can form some new hair growth, but this is typically thin and weak, as well as being limited to the crown. It’s unlikely you’ll see new growth at your hairline. Finasteride, originally developed to prevent prostate cancer, blocks production of a hormone that kills off hair follicles, causing male pattern baldness. Some men experience reduced sexual desire and impotence as a side effect of finasteride, however. Shampoos containing Nioxin show little promise in slowing hair loss.

Hair transplantation

Perhaps the best traditional method for hair replacement, transplants relocate healthy hair on your body to thinning and bald spots. Though a fairly reliable method of re-growing hair, transplants are expensive and time-consuming and require up to two weeks to recover. Some methods can leave substantial scarring, which could show through shorter hairstyles.

New rejuvenating technologies

Laser stimulation of the scalp is non-surgical, painless treatment with little in the way of side effects. The principle behind laser treatment of hair loss is that improving blood flow to the scalp helps supply oxygen and nutrients to slow the rate of hair growth, as well as thickening existing hair. On their own, laser treatments won’t start overwhelming new hair growth, but in combination with hair restoration therapy, results often show greater promise.

Blood thrombocytes therapy takes a sample of your own blood and then uses a centrifuge to concentrate platelets, which contain growth factor hormones. These hormones signal to naturally occurring stem cells to start regenerative growth. When injected into areas of hair loss, the blood cells therapy provides additional resources for new hair growth that’s encouraged by laser stimulation. Although results vary depending on the extent and aggressiveness of your hair loss, the combination of laser and blood thrombocytes treatments is the next wave in hair loss therapy.

At the Advanced Rejuvenation Center, we use the Theradome™ laser phototherapy system in combination with blood thrombocytes injections for our patients wishing to improve the quality and quantity of their own hair.
