Look Great this Year with Allumera Therapy

allumera-faceAre you ready to “face” the people you only see once a year?

The holidays are such a wonderful time, full of good company and food, accompanied by the occasional long lost friend or relative showing up …armed with cameras! Holidays may be the only time that you see some family members, friends or colleagues all year. But is sun-damaged skin leaving you camera shy?

There are a number of ways to freshen your look for the holidays, but don’t wait too long!

Whether your favorite products just aren’t giving you the results you’re looking for, or you’re ready to take your anti-aging skincare to the next level, there is a veritable arsenal of treatments out there for you to consider.

A new procedure called Allumera Photodynamic Therapy will make you look dynamic in your photos. Allumera is a new photodynamic therapy used to decrease hyperpigmentation, pore size, and fine lines and wrinkles – all in a few treatment sessions. Allumera is well-tolerated and fills the gap for those looking for more than a chemical peel, but wish to avoid more invasive procedures.

This topical cream, suitable for all skin types (for both men and women) is distinctively formulated to improve every aspect of the skin’s appearance as it reduces signs of aging. Allumera is a gentle treatment; therefore it involves minimal downtime, but provides lasting results.

In a survey conducted three months after their last Allumera treatment:

  • 93% of people said their skin felt softer;
  • 91% of people said their skin felt more hydrated, moisturized and smoother;
  • 89% of people said their skin texture was improved;
  • 86% of people said their skin looked and felt healthier;
  • Over 86% of those surveyed said they would recommend Allumera to a friend.

In a five-month controlled, clinical study, consumers experienced a 44% reduction in the appearance of pores three months after their last treatment.

Then the cream is wiped off your face, and facial skin is exposed to a red light source for about ten minutes. These sessions should be completed about once a month for three to four months in order to see full results.

Toward the end of the year, many people worry about how they will look for the holidays and what they can do to improve their appearance. We may have put things off that we’ve wanted to do but just didn’t want to take time away from our everyday activities.

Be honest with yourself and your doctor about how much time you really have and what you hope to achieve, as there are many options available, each with its own recovery and reward.

Who doesn’t want to hear: ‘You look great this year!’

If you’ve been considering a procedure to address the signs of aging, and freshen up your skin before all the cameras start snapping away, call our office today to schedule your complimentary consultation.

Don’t Worry… IPL Can Help You!

ipl3The bright and sunny days of summer are gone for the year so what do you have to show for it? For a lot of people, the answer is sun damage.

Sure, basking in the warm glow of the sun can make us feel good, and in the short term, makes us look good. But the cumulative effects of sun exposure put us at higher risk of cellular damage, early wrinkling, age spots, and skin cancer – including melanoma, the most serious type. Tanned skin may be revered as beautiful, but that golden color you see is the result of injury to the epidermis, the top layer of skin. Exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays accelerates the effects of aging and increases your risk for developing skin cancer.

The Sun’s Rays can make Skin look Old
and Wrinkled Years before it should!

ipl2than 80% of the signs of skin aging in adults are the result of the tans they had as teens before the age of 18. That’s because over time, the sun’s ultraviolet light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin.

When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching.

Too much sun also causes irregular coloring or pigmentation of the skin. Some areas of the skin appear darker, while others look lighter. The sun can also cause permanent changes in small blood vessels, giving your skin a reddish appearance.

But Don’t Worry… IPL Can Help You!

iplWe are proud to offer Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) FotoFacial, which is often used to address the most visible conditions of our sun damage. IPL is a non-invasive treatment that gently corrects the effects of sun damage.

It also treats a wide variety of facial concerns such as:

– broken capillaries – age spots
– benign brown spots – sun induced freckles
– mottled pigmentation – rosacea

It also kills bacteria (acne), stimulates collagen, makes skin smoother and softer, gets rid of sun damage, and reduces fine lines!

It is tailored to each individual patient’s needs and treats a wide range of facial concerns with no (or limited) down time.

What are the Advantages of IPL?

  • Addresses skin conditions that are MOST visible;
  • Safe and effective in improving the signs of aging on the face, neck, chest, and hands;
  • Treats the entire face (or area), not just small spots;
  • Causes little to no discomfort;
  • Provides a gradual, gentle, natural looking improvement;
  • FDA-approved;
  • Produces long lasting results.

The Treatments

The number of treatments you’ll need varies according to the condition being treated as well as the severity of it. They are generally based on a series of treatments over a period of time. On average, four to six treatments are recommended as they provide gradual and natural improvements to your skin. Following the treatments, some patients may experience some redness in the treated area, but this usually dissipates in a few hours.

Summer is over, but you don’t have to live with damage to your skin from the sun!

Call us today or simply respond to this post to schedule your complimentary consultation and we’ll discuss ways to erase that embarrassing sun damage and restore the natural glow of your skin.

So what is Zerona Lipo Laser?

In my last post “How To Lose Inches On Your Lunch Hour”, I had some questions on other procedures that claim to do the same thing and why do I recommend Zerona over some of the other options. So I thought I’d answer that question today.

zerona2-zerona_exampleSo what is Zerona Lipo Laser?

Unlike other procedures, the Zerona treatment allows patients to continue their daily activities without interruptions from surgery, pain, or wounds. During the procedure patients most often do not feel anything; the laser is a low level laser that does not produce heat. Many patients claim that it feels just like a relaxing massage.

Parts of the body Zerona Lipo Laser can Help

– Tummy – Love handles – Back – Thighs
– Buttocks – Chin and neck – Hips – Arms

Zerona Lipo is a tested and proven procedure that can reduce inches from target areas; Contour and reshape your body; and Tighten and tone loose skin.

Liposuction is an invasive procedure. A tube is inserted in the problem area and fat is sucked out. Unlike Zerona, you will need a local anesthetic. There will be bruising and swelling and you will need several days of recovery time. Liposuction will cost thousands of dollars. It is three to five times the cost of Zerona Treatments.

Another procedure that is being promoted heavily is called CoolSculpting. This procedure freezes certain fat cells to reduce and eliminate them. It may take months to finally see some results and unfortunately it does not work in all cases. There is a percentage of Patients who will get this procedure done and not have any measurable results! The cost for this treatment is approximately three times that of the Zerona treatments.

The Zerona Lipo Laser was actually introduced as a “miracle procedure” on the Dr. Oz Show. (Click here to see it for yourself!)

Whatever your body issues…you CAN lose inches on your lunch hour with Zerona Lipo Laser and we have the proof!

zerona2-before_afterLast week we shared a testimonial from one of our patients who at age 64 lost 9 inches and 7 lbs. in just two weeks. Well, here are some more real statements from real people who can’t get over the results they’re getting with Zerona:

“I went from a size 12 to a size 6 in just two weeks. I’m on top of the world!”

“Got my first post measurements today. I lost 9 1/2 inches total; I’m thrilled! I want to do another series and get my husband to do it as well.”

And Here’s the BEST NEWS…
zerona Kansas City woman scaleyou can get a series of 9 Zerona Treatments for only $99.67 each!

Lose Inches on Your Lunch Hour with Zerona!

So summer is over and you’re breathing a heavy sigh of relief…no more bathing suits, no more shorts, no more bare skin…it’s time for baggy sweaters and long pants. So you don’t have to worry about your body image for a while – right? Wrong!

This is no time to neglect your figure! The holidays are right around the corner, and that means shopping, parties and party clothes. And let’s not forget the stress! Did you know that cosmetic procedures – such as Zerona – can not only improve a person’s outward appearance, but their overall well being?

zerona-lose_inches_1hour

Less-invasive cosmetic procedures are really catching on, because the ability to continue with your daily activities right after treatment is a huge perk. Zerona will definitely put you on the path to looking and feeling better about yourself. Our goal is to have you leave our office after each visit feeling rejuvenated and more confident than you did on your way in.

zeronaHaving a Zerona treatment is just like a relaxing time at the spa! Here’s what you can expect in 3 easy steps:

  1. Upon arrival at our office, you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff members. You’ll change/undress and then lie down on our heated treatment table and covered up with sheets.
  2. A Zerona specialist will position the LipoLaser’s 5 laser heads over the area being treated.
  3. You will feel nothing during the procedure. The laser does not produce heat, so all you will see is a red beam of light rotating over your skin. Your treatment will take approximately 40 minutes.

Don’t be surprised if you wish your treatment would never end! All of our patients comment on how relaxed and rejuvenated they feel during and after their treatments. Look at it as your one-hour spa getaway where you can escape before or after work, during your lunch hour, or just to get a break from the kids!

The Results Don’t Lie,….9 inches and 7 lbs. – GONE!

Here’s what a recent patient had to say…

zerona-testimonial

Think of the last time your waist was 2-3 inches smaller, your hips had that natural curve, and your thighs were thinner. With the Zerona Laser treatment you now have an alternative to a shapelier figure without having to endure the fear – and sometimes-painful process – of a surgical procedure.

It’s not about what you lose, but what you gain…your youthful appearance, your confidence, and your beauty. Reclaim the real you and say goodbye to stubborn fat for once and all!

zerona-before_after_examplesAnd the best news is that this procedure is about one third the cost of Coolsculpting (which sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t) or Liposuction.
