Erase Years with Restylane

Disclaimer: Results may vary

As we age, it’s common to develop fine lines and wrinkles. The cheeks and lips begin to thin, and you begin to panic—could it be you’re actually getting “old”? Nonsense. Restylane is a clear gel formula that works to smooth wrinkles and essentially restore your youth. You can look as young as you feel, without surgery and without pain. Read on for the many benefits of Restylane:

  • Smooth wrinkles and fine lines. Restylane binds to water molecules in the skin, creating a more supple underlying foundation. This essentially fills in the wrinkles and lines, so that you have smooth and beautiful looking skin. Lines around the eyes, nose, mouth, and chin may be treated with Restylane.
  • Enhance your lips. In addition to treating wrinkles, Restylane may be used to enhance your lips. A fuller lip can help to restore a more youthful appearance, as it compliments the contour of your face. Many patients, who are over 21, enjoy this aspect of Restylane.
  • Add volume to your cheeks. As the facial cheeks thin with age, your face can begin to appear lifeless. Restylane fills in the empty space, by binding to the water molecules in the skin, creating a more youthful and healthy appearance.
  • Non-invasive. Restylane is a non-invasive way to restore your youth by adding volume and fullness to the skin. Many patients want results that don’t require the recovery time and pain, and Restylane offers just that.
  • Timely. The past part of Restylane, besides its non-invasive nature, is that it can be done in just minutes. This procedure is optimal for those of you who have a busy lifestyle. It’s quick, with minimal discomfort, and offers beautiful results.

If you’re experiencing the effects of aging, Restylane may be a good option for you. We always recommend a consultation to explore all of your options. For more information, please visit our page on Restylane!

CoolSculpting: Non-Invasive Way to Lose Weight

The struggle with unwanted body weight is a very real conflict experienced by countless adults. While many people assume that the solution to all weight and body fat issues boils down to diet and exercise, it’s rarely that simple. A healthy diet and exercise are helpful for overall health. No one disputes that, but in many cases, there are those who need something more in order to reach a desired, and often healthier body mass index (BMI). The most widely practiced surgical option has been liposuction.

Sometimes the risk of surgery is too great for some people because of other health issues they may have, yet they can’t seem to lose the fat no matter how disciplined their exercise regimen or how carefully crafted their diet is. For these people (and others who struggle with body fat), CoolSculpting might be the best non-surgical alternative.

Ideally tailored to individuals who are within 15 and 20 pounds of their target weight, CoolSculpting is performed by a machine that specifically targets underlying fat cells and freezes them, allowing them to be naturally emitted through the body. This natural emission is the body’s own waste removal mechanism. The treatment is painless and typically takes about two hours per session. Advantageously, there’s no downtime associated with CoolSculpting and patients can resume a normal everyday schedule once they leave the doctor’s office.

Many people turn to dietary supplements to control unwanted fat. Different bodies respond differently to these supplements and they may not always be good. Since CoolSculpting emits the fat naturally, diet pills can be avoided.

The results of CoolSculpting tend to be seen over time (weeks, months), rather than immediately (as in liposuction), and it’s important to note that this is not ideal for individuals wishing to lose a great deal of weight. The number of treatments varies from individual to individual, and the best results are often seen 4 to 6 months after the procedure. If you struggle with weight issues, it may be worth considering.

5 Tips to Enhance Your CoolSculpting Results

Disclaimer: Results may vary

You heard about CoolSculpting, you fell in love, you had the treatment, and now what? The work doesn’t end just because the treatment did. To be sure you achieve the best possible results, follow these 5 tips!

  1. Rest up sleeping beauty. Although most patients feel okay after their treatment, it’s important for you to rest and allow your body to fully rejuvenate. This way you’ll give your body the time it needs to get back to its normal self. No pushing yourself to the limit allowed! Even though we all tend to do that a little too often (woops!).
  2. Schedule a follow-up. By setting up a follow-up appointment, we can help you to achieve your desired results. Patients who have more than one treatment tend to see faster and greater fat-loss results. Of course we recommend follow-ups for patients who are looking to further their results. Many patients are satisfied with their first visit, and do not require a second.
  3. Don’t ditch the diet. After your CoolSculpting treatment make sure you continue to eat healthy and work out. CoolSculpting is excellent for fat reduction, however, to keep up your results you need to keep up your diet.
  4. Give CoolSculpting time. Don’t get upset if your results are not immediate. It’s common for the area(s) treated to appear swollen, bruised, or bloated after your treatment. Usually, it takes about two to four months for a patient to notice a reduction in fat in the area treated. During this time period, it’s important to relax, exercise moderately, and maintain a healthy diet.
  5. Try a binder. This compressional garment can help with any discomfort you may be experiencing. Also, it reduces any movement and friction in the area(s) treated. Don’t hesitate to ask your specialist for a binder!

If you are planning to have CoolSculpting, or were already treated, hopefully these 5 tips will serve you well. Rest assured that you will attain realistic results, and as long as you follow these tips, you will be feeling your best in no time! For more information, visit our page on CoolSculpting.

Top 7 Reasons to Have CoolSculpting

No matter how much you eat healthy and exercise, you just can’t seem to get rid of those annoying love handles, muffin tops, saddlebags, etc. Well, it’s called stubborn fat for a reason. Lucky for you, “stubborn fat” doesn’t have to be in your vocabulary anymore! CoolSculpting is a safe, non-invasive procedure that uses a targeted cooling system to freeze fat cells, which kills them. After reading these 7 reasons why you should have CoolSculpting, we think you’ll be glad you read this blog!

  1. Surgery isn’t for you. No problem! CoolSculpting uses a cooling technology to freeze fat cells. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from the body. There will be no cutting, needles, or even scars. You can thank us later!
  2. You’re tired of waiting. How much time does it take to lose weight anyway? How about ONE HOUR. In the time you go to the gym, for a regular workout, you could be shedding pounds. The next time you’re on lunch, come on over!
  3. You’re an all-natural kind of woman. CoolSculpting does not use any laser, sonic waves that destroy other tissue in the process of extracting fat. It simply cools the fat cells (and only the fat cells!), which kills them. The fat is then eliminated naturally.
  4. You want to remove the fat, and only the fat. Nowhere in, “I want to lose weight,” is there, “I want to destroy my body in the process”. Other procedures can affect healthy skin cells in the process of removing the fat cells. CoolSculpting, developed by Harvard scientists, targets the fat cells only. The rest of your skin cells will remain healthy and well.
  5. You eat right, and want your body to reflect it. No matter how much you diet and exercise you just aren’t seeing the results. You’re in good company. That’s why amazing technology like CoolSculpting exists! If you work hard to have a great body, you deserve to have a great body. Let CoolSculpting help you to achieve the results you desire.
  6. You want to steer clear of any pills or supplements. As long as you maintain eating healthy and exercising, your long-term results may be achieved—without any pills or supplements.
  7. You’re all for minimal downtime and lasting results. “I want to be in misery,” said no one ever. After your CoolSculpting treatment, you can return to your normal day. Come in on your lunch break if you want! It’s quick and relatively painless. Not to mention, the results last. In fact, a few months after your treatment you can still be in the process of losing weight.

These are only seven out of many reasons why CoolSculpting is a great option for the elimination of stubborn fat (notice I said elimination and not removal!). Yes, you too can freeze unwanted fat and have it disappear into thin air, or something like that.

For more information, please visit our CoolSculpting page and schedule a consultation! You won’t regret it :)

Popular Med Spa Procedures for Mothers in New York City

For New York City mothers looking to indulge themselves in a little more high-octane beauty treatment than a massage and facial, Med Spas offer a deluxe menu of services to beautify, lift, and tone those areas that could be just a little bit better. JustMelt Med Spa in NYC offers nonsurgical procedures under qualified supervision to give moms the look they want. Some of the treatments include skin tightening, weight loss, and body contouring.

Skin tightening treatments for the face and body may use laser or ultrasound to minimize sagging jaw lines and cheeks, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and contour the body. The major benefit to these treatments is that they are nonsurgical, can be done in less than two hours with little to no recovery time, and most show immediate improvement. Some even continue to work over time!

Thermage™ is a laser skin tightening treatment and requires virtually no recovery time. The procedure is done using a special hand device which delivers a radio frequency laser application with mild heat in conjunction with a special cooling spray. This helps production of new collagen for a fresher, more youthful appearance. Although results vary, most clients see an improved appearance right away. Benefits of Thermage™ are tightened skin, smoother texture, and reduction of crepiness. Thermage™ may be used for body contouring as well, refining trouble spots such as the tummy, buttocks, and cellulite patches.

Another type of treatment is Ulthera® which uses an ultrasound treatment to tighten loose facial skin. During this treatment a hand device/wand and a gel is used much like in other types of ultrasounds, and a topical anesthetic may also be used to reduce any sensitivity to the treatment. Again with this treatment there is virtually no recovery time, results are usually immediate, and then continue over a period of time. Initially there may be mild redness, swelling, or tingling but this is normal and will go away in a few hours.

Weight loss treatments include the HCG Weight Loss Diet. HCG is a hormone produced during pregnancy which controls the mother’s metabolic rate. A synthetic version of this hormone is administered via injection and used in conjunction with a “Very Low Calorie Diet” (VCLD) for dramatic results. NYC clients can lose up to a pound a day or 30 pounds in a month.

Body contouring treatments help with those problem areas which do not respond as desired to diet and exercise. Some of these treatments include Coolsculpting®, Lipomassage®, and Zerona®. Coolsculpting freezes fat cells which then crystallize and are eliminated naturally through the body’s waste. Coolsculpting uses a vacuum-like device on the skin and is cool to the touch. Results are usually seen in 2-6 months. Lipomassage is another procedure to eliminate stubborn fatty areas and requires minimal pre and post care. This procedure uses a combination of rollers and vacuum to eliminate fat cells. The treatments take approximately 35 minutes each. Results can be seen in as little as 6 treatments. Zerona uses a cold laser to eliminate fat. The client lays under the special Zerona lights for a 40 minute treatment which is done up to 3 times a week for best results. Results may be seen after 4-6 treatments for NYC clients who had body contouring treatments.

Reduce Fat With CoolSculpting in NYC

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment offered by JustMelt in NYC, used to reduce fat by using a cooling technology to target the fat cells and reduce the fat layer. CoolSculpting can produce incredible results, but there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle. While CoolSculpting tones and defines the body, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to guarantee long-lasting results. Most people decide to get CoolSculpting treatment after first trying to lose weight through dieting and exercise, which should continue post treatment.
  • The second time may be the charm. One treatment results in a 20-25% fat reduction, and each treatment after results in about the same amount of reduction. Therefore, some people find that two treatments provide the greatest results.
  • Comfort. The treatment can be uncomfortable for the first 5-10 minutes, while the vacuum is grabbing the skin and fat. Many people find that the remainder of the treatment is not bothersome and they are able to relax.
  • Recovery time. You may experience minor soreness and tingling (much like the feeling after a difficult workout) for a few days following the treatment. This discomfort will subside and should not affect your ability to go about your regular day.

Ulthera for skin tightening: Have you gotten it yet?

Ulthera is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that lifts, tightens and tones the skin for our clients in NYC area. It requires no anesthetic or sedation, but local-anesthesia is recommended.

Ulthera uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to heat the deep layers of the skin to promote collagen production. The heat generated from the ultrasound frequency causes damage to the collagen layers, and therefore promotes the production of new collagen.

Ulthera is considered to be an excellent alternative to a facelift for people who have mild to moderate laxity. It is skin color independent and does not affect the epidermis, so patients (skin types I-VI) may be treated year round without any pre or post-test skin requirements. It’s completed in as short as 60 minutes, with little to no downtime. Many NYC patients experience immediate results with Ulthera, and continue to see results within 60-90 days.

If you’re looking for a brow/face lift, without the surgery, ulthera is the answer for you. So what are you waiting for? Be naturally, beautiful with Justmelt’s expertise.

Ulthera: How Often You Should Get It

How long your Ulthera treatment lasts depends on how your body responds to collagen stimulation. Unfortunately, aging never stops. Therefore, there is a continuous cycle of the breakdown of collagen and collagen generation.

Ulthera uses the safe energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin. As a result of the deep structural level targeted, the procedure tends to last about 1-3 years. However, the aging process does not stop, and you can’t prevent collagen breakdown.

You can expect to repeat your Ulthera treatment every 1-3 years. Touch-up treatments may also assist with the aging process. The greatest thing about Ulthera is that it continually stimulates collagen production. In addition to the immediate results, you will notice results over time as new, more elastic collagen is produced.

To schedule your Ulthera consultation in our NYC clinic, please call us at 212-447-1155 to speak to our friendly staff who can help you answer any questions you may have about Ulthera treatment.

What’s Different about Ulthera for skin tightening?

 

Does the thought of facelift surgery make you squirm a little? The needles, the anesthesia, the blood, and the extended recovery make many people uncomfortable. If you’re afraid of surgery, you may be thinking that there’s no other way to improve your facial appearance and make you look younger.

It’s time to rethink your options. A new kind of treatment, Ulthera, is a non-invasive therapy that uses harmless ultrasound waves to lift and tighten the skin on your face and neck. The energy from the ultrasound is able to stimulate the collagen in your skin and provide remarkable results without surgery.

What makes Ulthera different from the other cosmetic treatments available today? Here are three answers.

1. Ulthera is able to work on the deep foundations of your skin without making a single cut. Those deeper layers of skin are where plastic surgeons focus their efforts during facelift surgeries. With Ulthera, they are able to apply treatment on the outside, but penetrate the energy deep into the collagen-containing tissues.

2. Ulthera doesn’t use knives or lasers. With Ulthera, your doctor is able to use the ultrasound to see and treat those deep layers of skin without cutting or applying massive amounts of heat. The ultrasound technology allows the doctor to visually target certain areas and initiate the collagen-building process that will tone and tighten the skin.

3. Ulthera is an extremely fast procedure that requires no downtime. The ultrasound therapy can be done in as little as one hour. Since the process is non-invasive, there’s no need for a recovery. You can resume your normal activities immediately.

If you’re not ready for facelift surgery, that’s okay. With Ulthera you can get an “uplift” that can take years off your face. It’s a natural process that can be completed over the lunch hour. No need for surgery, no need for downtime.

CoolSculpting: The Non-Invasive Way to Beat the Bulge

If you have fat bulges that just won’t go away, you’re probably feeling frustrated and defeated. You’ve tried everything—new workouts, new diets, new pills, new clothes—but nothing works. You may even be considering liposuction or another type of plastic surgery to correct your trouble spots.

Here’s some good news—getting rid of those unsightly bulges doesn’t have to involve such drastic measures. With the new technology of CoolSculpting, you can transform your body with no more than 60 minutes of downtime—no surgery or recovery necessary in NYC!

CoolSculpting is a breakthrough treatment that was developed by scientists at Harvard. Plus, it’s been cleared by the FDA. The technology is based on the simple premise of freezing fat cells and leaving the other, healthy cells intact. In the weeks following treatment, the frozen cells die off and your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells. You can see some results as soon as three weeks after treatment and the final, permanent results are visible just a few months later.

Going to the gym and eating right are important, but unfortunately, those healthy habits can’t take care of everything. For those troublesome fat bulges on your stomach area, thighs, arms, or legs, CoolSculpting could be just the right answer. It’s the perfect way to lose inches and boost your confidence at the same time!
