20 Jan New Year’s Skin Care Countdown – Fashion Times Part 2
New Treatments To Trim Fat & Rejuvenate Skin For 2016
Who can blame anyone for getting out of their gym routine and into a complete holiday rut? We feast so much during this time of year that fitness can quickly get put on the back-burner. But that glittery party dress for New Year’s has to fit and we have to look fresh-faced, no matter what!
So if you’re in the market for a New Year’s cheat-sheet to slim down and freshen up, consider these cosmetic treatment crib notes, courtesy of Dr. Nicholas Sieveking, a board certified plastic surgeon and director of Ageless Solutions in Nashville, Tennessee.
2 Weeks Before New Year’s – Skin Tightening & Fat Reduction
In the market to spruce up the area around the eyes, neck, jowls, abdomen, upper arms, thighs or love handles? Who isn’t? But if you’re looking for a quick fix, Dr. Sieveking suggests Exilis Elite. This is a new treatment for skin tightening and fat reduction. This FDA-approved treatment is an alternative to liposuction and plastic surgery to achieve smoother, tighter skin, or contouring in certain areas.
This is the latest technology in skin tightening and fat reduction. How does it work? “Collagen production is stimulated and as the area cools, it results in the tightening of the skin,” the physician described. “Patients equate the heat felt during an Exilis treatment to the heat similar to a hot stone massage,” he said. Dr. Sieveking recommends approximately 6 treatments per area. Each session can take 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
1 Week Before New Year’s – Hydrafacial
What better way to get 2016 ready than by rejuvenating your skin? The HydraFacial is new aesthetic technology. Dr. Sieveking says this isn’t your at-home facial. “This ability to moisturize the skin separates this option from all other skin resurfacing procedures. The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing solutions,” he explained. The treatment is immediately effective and has little to no downtime.
