CoolSculpting Before and After: Results

CoolSculpting is clinically shown to reduce 25% of fat cells, on average, after a single treatment. CoolSculpting targets stubborn bulges with precisely controlled cooling, effectively freezing subcutaneous fat without harming surrounding skin or tissue. Once fat cells are frozen, the body gradually processes the cells and excretes them as waste. Some CoolSculpting patients begin to see results after 4 weeks, but the majority of patients typically see the full effects of their Cool Sculpting treatment within 8 to 12 weeks, although results may vary. Best of all, treatments may be repeated for optimal fat reduction.

CoolSculpting Treatment Areas:

CoolSculpting can attack stubborn bulges from nearly any part of the body, starting with the double chin, all the way down to fat deposits above the knee. The most common treatment areas include

  • Belly fat
  • Love handles
  • Fat on the inner thighs
  • Fat on the outer thighs
  • Fats on the hips and buttocks
  • Back fat
  • Armpit fat (also known as bra bulge)
  • Upper arm fat
  • Submental fullness (double chins.)

Preventative Botox and the Prejuvenation Beauty Trend: Botox in your 20’s & 30’s

When it comes to the signs of aging, it is better to prevent rather than repair. This is why “prejuvenation” is a popular beauty trend among men and women in their 20’s and 30’s. The most popular cosmetic treatment among Millennials is Botox and Dermal Fillers. Demand for these cosmetic treatments have skyrocketed among younger adults since new research has shown that preventative Botox and preventative fillers can actually prevent wrinkles from developing.

Read on to learn more about preventing wrinkles with Botox and Fillers and how prejuvenation can maintain your youthful appearance and ward of the signs of aging.

What is Botox?

Botox is a neuromodulator that blocks nerve signals within muscles. This is ideal for treating dynamic wrinkles caused by the repetitive contraction of underlying facial muscles. Botox causes the muscle to relax, softening fine lines and smoothing out wrinkles that form between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and around the eyes, such as crow’s feet.

What are Soft tissue fillers?

Dermal fillers are volumizing substances that fill in wrinkles and plump up areas with age related volume loss. Dermal fillers are most effective on the fine lines and wrinkles that form on the lower half of the face such as nasolabial folds (laugh lines.)

Preventative Botox in your 20’s and 30’s

In recent years, there has been a growing demand for Botox and Fillers from patients in their 20’s and 30’s. Some people argue that cosmetic injections in men and women who are younger than 35 years of age is unnecessary, considering most wrinkles do not become a cosmetic concern for most people before their 30’s. But dermatologists posit that Botox and fillers are valuable treatments for preventative skincare, or “prejuvenation,” and getting Botox before wrinkle set in can prevent those wrinkles from forming.

What is Prejuvenation?

According to the 2017 annual report “Millennials & Injectables Are Shaping the Future of Aesthetics” from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS,) Prejuvenation is an emerging beauty trend popular among patients in their 20’s and 30’s. The AAFPRS posits that our prevalent “youth culture” is significantly altering the majority demographic of patients receiving facial injections. “The focus has shifted from correction to prevention,” explains AAFPRS “Even before the first signs of sagging, lines or volume loss, we are seeing patients adamant about stalling the aging process.” The strategy Millennial men and women are employing to preserve their youth is “prejuvenation, or a hot new term that refers to when smart young women start non-invasive beauty treatments like Botox and chemical peels earlier in order to prevent aging—rather than correct it,” states AAFPRS.

And according to recent publication by the scientific community, prejuvenation is not hype. Studies suggest preventative Botox and preventative fillers actually ward off the formation of dynamic wrinkles.

How Does Preventative Botox Prevent Wrinkles?

The Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery published one notable study validating the use of preventative Botox titled “Long-term effects of botulinum toxin type A (Botox) on facial lines: a comparison in identical twins.” The study evaluated the “presence of imprinted facial lines” (wrinkles that are present even when the forehead is relaxed) as well as crow’s feet “in identical twin sisters, one of whom had received Botulinum toxin type A (Botox) treatment in the forehead and glabellar (between the eyebrows) region regularly for 13 years and one of whom had not.”

The purpose of this study was to determine if Botox injections could actually prevent wrinkles from forming. When the study evaluated both twins, neither of which had current Botox injections, researchers found that “Imprinted forehead and glabellar lines were not evident in the regularly treated twin but were evident in the minimally treated twin.” In addition to fewer wrinkles on the brow and forehead “Crow’s feet were less noticeable when the regularly treated twin smiled.” Adding further evidence that Botox prevented wrinkles from forming, the study pointed out “untreated facial areas (eg, nasolabial folds) showed comparable aging in both twins.” These findings allowed the researchers to conclude, “long-term treatment with Botox can prevent the development of imprinted facial lines that are visible at rest. Botox treatment can also reduce crow’s feet.”

Preventative Botox Before and After

Additional support for preventative Botox and the value of using dermal fillers in an active prejuvenation regime is found In a viewpoint published in JAMA Dermatology by skincare physicians who argue that in most cases, performing “appearance-enhancing procedures” such as Botox and dermal fillers on patients in their 20’s and 30’s is not “too early.”

According to the authors, Botox and fillers not only diminish the appearance of existing wrinkles but can prevent wrinkles from forming, making these treatments beneficial to young adults who are beginning to see the first signs of fine lines.

Regarding Botox and similar neuromodulators such as Dysport and Xeomin the authors reason that since expression lines form from repeated muscle contractions, that diminishing “the action of the muscles of facial expression” or paralyzing the facial muscle below an emerging wrinkle so that muscle cannot contract will prevent dynamic wrinkles from forming.

The authors believe “Initiating regular treatment with a neuromodulator in an individual’s 20s or 30s will have a dramatic effect on the appearance of the face as seen in the person’s 40s or 50s. There will be few, if any, lines of facial expression present.”

How do dermal fillers ward of the signs of aging?

Relating to dermal fillers, the authors explain that “Injection of soft tissue fillers below folds and in areas of volume loss on the face not only smoothes skin and improves facial contour, but some of the substances stimulate biological process that induce new connective tissue that lasts much longer than the injected filler. For example, injecting…Hyaluronic acid filler has be shown to stimulate collagen production…These findings support what we often see clinically – the more a filler has been used, the less often it is needed and perhaps over time, its use becomes not necessary at all.”

The authors conclude “the initiation of conservative and thoughtful use of neuromodulators, fillers, and noninvasive energy-based treatments, alone or in combination, will keep patients looking young and their skin looking healthier. So there really is rarely a time that is too early. Perhaps the better question is, ‘When is it too late?’”

Preventative Botox & Fillers FAQ

Is Botox Safe?

Botox is extremely safe. It has one of the best safety profiles of any medical treatment, cosmetic or otherwise, and has a very low risk of side effects. Botox is the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure in the world. As such, it has been thoroughly studied, and medical professionals know how Botox works down to the very molecule.

Will Getting facial injections too early force me to continue getting such treatments?

No. In fact, getting cosmetic injections in your 20’s and 30’s makes it less likely to need them in your 30’s and 40’s.

CoolSculpting Prices & How to Save on CoolSculpting Cost

It seems like almost everyone wants to learn more about CoolSculpting, the world’s most popular, non-invasive fat reduction treatment. But after learning about fat freezing, reading CoolSculpting reviews and seeing amazing CoolSculpting before and after pictures, people usually have just one question left: how much does CoolSculpting cost?

CoolSculpting cost is determined by the type of applicator, and the number of cycles completed using an applicator. Applicators come in two main sizes, small and large. Smaller applicators cost about half as much as larger applicators, however, larger applicators cover more area and equate to a similar value as the smaller applicators. One exception is the CoolMini applicator, which is specifically designed to target double chins.

How Applicators Work With the CoolSculpting Machine

To better understand the CoolSculpting price structure it is helpful to understand how the CoolSculpting procedure works. When undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment, an applicator is positioned over a fat deposit, such as a love handle.  The CoolSculpting machine is then turned on and the tissue (and underlying fat) situated below the applicator is safely drawn up inside the applicator using a gentle suction mechanism. The tissue then rests in between two cooling plates housed within the applicator. These plates expose the treatment area to controlled cooling for a specific amount of time, determined by the type of applicator being used. Treatment times range between 35 and 75 minutes. Only one applicator can be hooked up to the CoolSculpting machine at a time.¹

 

One applicator = one cycle

One round of the CoolSculpting machine using a single applicator is considered a cycle. Some treatment areas may require only one cycle, such as the CoolMini. Larger treatment areas, such as the abdomen may also require one cycle using a single large applicator. Sometimes however, the abdomen may be better treated using two small applicators. It all depends on the individual’s body shape and treatment plan. Treatment areas that have two sides, such as the upper arms, the love handles, or the thighs, require at least two cycles, one applicator used for each side.

CoolSculpting Cost in Westchester County

CoolSculpting cost for a single cycle using a small applicator typically range between $700 and $800. A cycle with a large applicator is typically double that of a small applicator. However, CoolSculpting providers, like Park Avenue Medical Spa may run CoolSculpting promotions that significantly reduce CoolSculpting cost. Park Avenue Medical Spa in Westchester County is currently offering new clients 25% off their CoolSculpting treatment.

PRP hair Restoration Before and After

PRP Hair Restoration, also known as vampire hair restoration, offers non-surgical hair restoration, stimulating hair growth using the patient’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP.) PRP hair restoration is ideal for both men and women and is commonly used in collaboration with surgical hair transplants to improve outcome and accelerate the healing process.  PRP is also a popular stand-alone hair treatment, performed to improve thinning hair by increasing hair count and hair density and to fortify existing hair by strengthening hair follicles. This minimally invasive procedure leaves no scars and does not require lengthy recovery times. Best of all, results are dramatic and long lasting, leaving you with a thick, full head of hair.

How Does PRP Hair Treatments Work?

PRP hair restoration cultivates essential growth hormones from the patient’s own blood. These growth factors are then injected into the dermis of the scalp. To begin, a sample of blood is drawn from the patient. The blood sample is then put into a centrifuge. This spins the blood, separating the platelets from the red blood cells. These platelets contain more than 5x the amount of growth factors than regular blood and may include: Keratinocyte growth factor, Insulin-like growth factor 1, Platelet-derived growth factor, Vascular endothelial growth factor, and more.

The principle behind Platelet Rich Plasma in Hair Restoration

Platelets are essential to your body’s healing process. When you are wounded, your body sends platelets to the injury site to aid in clotting the blood. Besides stopping the bleeding, platelets contain hundreds of proteins known as growth factors. These proteins stimulate healing. PRP is used in various treatments, including skin rejuvenation, post-surgical rehabilitation, and is commonly injected into injured tendons, fractures, and other injuries to facilitate healing and speed up recovery. When PRP is injected and activated into the scalp, it is shown to improve the thickness and density of hair and improve the outcome of other hair loss treatments, such as a surgical hair transplant.

Numerous studies have measured the effectiveness of PRP injections on alopecia.

Injections of platelet-rich plasma for androgenic alopecia: A systematic review published in the Journal of stomatology, oral and maxillofacial surgery in 2017 concluded, “the use of PRP injections in patients with androgenic alopecia seems effective with respect to promoting lost hair regrowth, decreasing hair loss and increasing hair thickness.”

The Effect of Platelet-Rich Plasma in Hair Regrowth: A Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial published in The Journal of Stem Cell Transitional Medicine in 2015 reported “At the end of the 3 treatment cycles, the patients presented clinical improvement in the mean number of hairs, with a mean increase of 33.6 hairs in the target area and a mean increase in total hair density of 45.9 hairs per cm² compared with baseline values. No side effects were noted during treatment. The data clearly highlight the positive effects of PRP injections on male pattern hair loss and absence of major side effects. PRP may serve as a safe and effective treatment option against hair loss; more extensive controlled studies are needed.”

Platelet-Rich Plasma in Androgenic Alopecia published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery concluded that “PRP injection for androgenic alopecia is a simple, cost-effective and feasible treatment option for hair loss and can be regarded as a valuable adjuvant treatment modality for androgenic alopecia,” and “PRP hair treatment is a promising treatment option for patients with thinning hair.”

CoolSculpting for Men : Moobs

CoolSculpting’s ability to treat Pseudogynecomastia, the medical term for man boobs, was recently evaluated in a clinical study titled “Cryolipolysis for Targeted Fat Reduction and Improved Appearance of the Enlarged Male Breast.” 95% of the male participants, who received two CoolSculpting treatments, saw improvements and the researchers concluded CoolSculpting could be “a safe, effective, and well-tolerated non-surgical treatment of pseudogynecomastia.”

Why Men Want CoolSculpting

While a slim, contoured body appeals to both men and women, these two groups commonly report different reasons for undergoing the CoolSculpting treatment. Many women who get CoolSculpting say they are motivated by the hope that losing stubborn bulges will help them feel more confident about their body. CoolSculpting for men, however, is often chosen because men believe looking skinny and fit will provide them with a competitive advantage in their professional life as well as their dating life. A CoolSculpting review in Bloomberg magazine explains that procedures like CoolSculpting “are becoming viewed by men as a method of self-enhancement, like eating well, wearing nice clothes, or going to the gym.”

CoolSculpting Westchester for Stubborn Belly Fat

CoolSculpting westchester

CoolSculpting in Westchester from Park Avenue Medical Spa provides men and women with a non-invasive solution for belly fat and other stubborn fat deposits. Discover what causes fat to cling to the lower abdomen and how CoolSculpting reduces belly bulges to reveal a slimmer, sculpted stomach you’ll love to show off.

CoolSculpting Westchester for Stubborn Belly Fat

Regardless of what you call it, pot belly, belly fat, beer gut, or your stomach pouch, fat that clings to the lower abdomen is a problem for many men and women. Belly fat is one of the most notorious fat deposits that resists diet and exercise and gets worse with age.

While lifestyle choices can contribute to the amount of fat someone carries on their belly, lower abdomen fat has many other causes, including gender, age, genetics, hormones, and certain medical illnesses and conditions. This helps explain why belly fat can be so stubborn and resist our efforts to reduce it with diet and exercise.

The Little Known Causes of Belly Fat

For men, the lower abdomen is the body’s default area for storing excess body fat. For women, estrogen directs the body to deposit fat in the thighs, buttocks, and hips. Although women in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s can still have fat deposited on their bellies for other reasons, such as genetics. When women age, estrogen levels drop and fat begins to accumulate towards the lower abdomen. Besides gender and hormones, age contributes to stubborn stomach bulges as the body uses up less calories due to a slowing metabolism and the depletion of muscle mass.

How to Reduce Stubborn Belly Fat

But diet and exercise is not always enough for getting rid of belly fat and other stubborn fat deposits that are influenced by a slew of other factors.

Winter Skincare Tips

winter skincare

WINTER SKINCARE TIPS

Winter can be the harshest season on your skin. Outside, the temperatures are frigid and the gusty wind constantly blows dry air onto our face. Inside is no better; central heating sucks all the humidity out of the environment. This results in skin that is dry, red, blotchy, itchy and sometimes acne prone. Fortunately, Dr. Anca Tchelebi, owner of Park Avenue Medical Spa in Westchester, NY, offers 8 winter skincare tips that will help your skin stay smooth, moisturized, and pimple free during the winter


MOISTURIZE

The dry winter air strips your skin of its moisture. That is why “a good moisturizer is central to good winter skincare” says Dr. Tchelebi. Some of the best moisturizers for dry skin contain lipid molecules called ceramides. These lipid molecules strengthen your skin’s water barrier that keeps moisture in.

USE A HUMIDIFIER

Central heating turns your home into a dry, arid environment that will suck the water out of your skin. “Put some moisture back into the air with a humidifier,” suggests Dr. Tchelebi. “Put the humidifier where ever you spend a lot of time in your house and especially in your bedroom when you sleep at night.”

PROFESSIONAL WINTER SKINCARE TREATMENTS

You put your skin through the wringer during the winter. Give it a much-deserved break at your local skin spa with a professional winter skincare treatment. Microdermabrasion is a great way to exfoliate dry winter skin and Hydrating facials infuse your skin with powerful, moisturizing ingredients.

AVOID HOT WATER

Taking steamy showers or soaking in a hot bath is especially enjoyable when the weather is cold and dry. But hot water only exacerbates dry skin. Dr. Anca Tchelebi recommends keeping your hot water use to a minimum. Make hot showers quick, and when you wash your face, use lukewarm water.

EXFOLIATE

Winter acne is a common skin malady. Dr. Tchelebi explains that during the cold, dry months “dry skin cells build up on the outer most layer of the epidermis and can easily clog the pores, leading to acne breakouts.” To avoid pimples caused by dry skin cells, Dr. Tchelebi suggests weekly exfoliation. “Exfoliating removes the outer most layer of dead skin cells and stimulates cell renewal. Not only will you slough off dead skin cells and other debris that clog your pores and dull your complexion, you will reveal a fresher, more radiant layer of skin.

THE BEST SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR WINTERTIME

When shopping for winter skincare products, Dr. Tchelebi recommends choosing moisturizers and cleansers formulated for sensitive skin. Also, look for products with moisturizing ingredients such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid. “I recommend Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier or their Hydrating B5 gel.”

THE WORST SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR WINTER

“You may want to limit certain acne medications in your winter skincare routine,” says Dr. Tchelebi. Medications with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid dry out the skin. “Talk to your dermatologist about alternative acne treatments if you suffer from dry skin in the winter.” Also, “avoid cheaper skincare products containing alcohol. These will only exacerbate dry winter skin.”

DRINK WATER

We may not feel as thirsty when the weather is cold, but your skin still needs you to drink up. Hydrate your skin from the inside out during the wintertime by meeting your recommended daily water intake.

Botox for Men

Botox is the #1 non-invasive male cosmetic procedure. Commonly referred to as “Brotox” by its male patients, Botox is perfect for smoothing out the fine lines and wrinkles that age the face and make men look tired and run down. It works especially well on dynamic wrinkles in the upper region of the face, such as crow’s feet, fine lines between the brow (also known as frown lines) and forehead wrinkles.

Coming in at the #3 and #4 spot on the list of most popular non-invasive male cosmetic procedures is microdermabrasion and chemical peel treatments. Microdermabrasion and chemical peels are two types of professional facials that safely exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells.

When the top layer of dead skin cells is sloughed off during microdermabrasion or a chemical peel, your body’s repair and rejuvenation processes are triggered. Newer skin cells replace older skin cells, providing an immediate glow leaving you looking refreshed and healthy. Collagen, the protein that provides your skin with structure and strength is also stimulated, helping soften wrinkles and correct pigmentation irregularities.

Anti-aging facials with a Chemical peel or microdermabrasion, is an easy, relaxing, painless treatment. No downtime is required, allowing you to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.*

Dermal Fillers for Men

The 5th most popular non-invasive male cosmetic procedure are dermal fillers. Also known as facial fillers or soft tissue fillers, dermal fillers are a type of cosmetic injection composed of a volumizing substance. Dermal fillers are ideal for restoring age-related volume loss that causes under eye bags. It can also smooth out scars by plumping up scar depressions, such as boxcar acne scars. Dermal fillers provide anti-aging results, filling in fine lines around the lips, mouth, and nasolabial folds (also known as laugh lines.)

Dermal fillers are a quick and convenient treatment that can easily be performed during your lunch hour. They can be used in conjunction with Botox injections for optimal anti-aging results.

IPL Photofacial Westchester: The Best Freckle Treatment Available

Freckles have always known mixed reception. Some see them as flaws that mar the complexion; others think of them with exotic appeal and find freckles that dot the skin as beautiful. Those who lack enthusiasm for these little sun kisses, often score the internet for how to get rid of freckles, finding everything from bleaching the skin with lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to skin creams promising to get rid of wrinkles.

Can You Really Get Rid of Freckles?

It may not be possible to completely and permanently get rid of freckles, but there are definitely professional treatments that can significantly diminish the appearance of freckles. And these treatments work much more effectively than any DIY freckle remover you might concoct at home.

Photofacials using intense pulsed light (IPL,) also known as Broad Band Light (BBL) treatments are one of the most effective ways for dealing with freckles.

Learn More about Photofacial Westchester >>

Professional skin care treatments using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL,) often referred to as a Photofacials, offer a very effective solution for diminishing the appearance of freckles.

 

What Causes Freckles?

To understand why leading Photofacial Westchester providers recommend IPL treatments to their patients who do not like their freckles, it’s important to understand what causes freckles to form in the first place.

Freckles are a type of sun damage. They occur when UV radiation triggers skin cells called Melanocytes to produce more melanin (the pigment that gives our skin its color and is used by the body to absorb harmful UV rays.) The over production of melanin causes a build of the pigment below the skin, creating a brown spot known as a freckle.

Are freckles Genetic?

Freckles themselves are caused by an extrinsic factor, the sun, but our propensity to get freckles is influenced by our genetic makeup. Individuals with Northern European descent, such as Irish or Scandinavian, with light or pale skin are more likely to get freckles. These freckles are most commonly accumulated on the face and arms, but can appear anywhere on the body. Typically freckles are brown to reddish brown in color and can fade in intensity during the winter. Similarly, freckles may become darker and more noticeable in the summer, due to more sun exposure.

Photofacial Westchester: Will IPL therapy Diminish my Freckles?

Photofacials that use IPL technology are one of the best freckle treatments available. They are clinically proven and supported by impressive Photofacial before and after pics showing how a Photofacial can dramatically lighten freckles.

How Does a Photo Facial Work?

Photofacials utilize a specific wavelength of light that is specifically calibrated to target the hue of your freckles. The light is then emitted in pulses to avoid harming the surrounding skin and to ensure the patient is comfortable during the Photofacial treatment. The light from the Photofacial passes through the skin and is absorbed by the cells with the brown melanin. The melanin absorbs such an intense amount of light that the cell is damaged by the thermal energy. The damaged cells are fragmented and begin to break apart, triggering the body’s metabolic processes to absorb the shattered pieces of the cell. After the Photofacial fragments the melanin and those pieces are absorbed the freckle is significantly diminished in appearance, if not completely vanished.

Freckle treatment using IPL Photofacials can be repeated several times to achieve the most optimal results possible. While individual experiences may vary, Most patients see results after their first treatment and are typically fully satisfied after 3 to 5 photofacial treatments.*

Although the term Photofacials may allude that the IPL treatment is isolated to the face region, Photofacials can diminish freckles from the neck, chest, and even the hands. Photofacials are not just for diminishing freckles. The specific wavelength of light that is emitted may be customized to target other types of sun damage, such as sun spots, and even skin issues that are not caused by UV exposure such as red spots, rosacea, melasma, and other types of hyperpigmentation.
