Termite Inspections!

Mastotermes darwiniensis or Darwin Termite, is an extant species of Australian insect showing archedictyon wing venation. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
You have probably heard the adage “If you don’t have termites in Phoenix, you WILL have termites.” Termite inspections are required by lenders, whether or not you are buying a new or resale home.

The Residential Resale Real Estate Purchase Contract states that during the inspection period: buyers must place in escrow a Wood Infestation Report of all residences and buildings included in the sale, prepared by a qualified pest control operator consistent with the rules and regulations of the Structural Pest Control

Young People Getting Started Early With Skin Care

Starting early is one of the top tips Dr. Debra Jaliman, a dermatologist on New York City’s tony Fifth Avenue, offers in her new book, “Skin Rules.” She often tells her young patients, if they ask, that the science is clear: Early engagement can stop the clock.

If you know you’re somebody who’s going in the direction of cosmetics and you know that you’re going to care about lines, then I say it’s better to do it earlier than to wait and do it once these lines have etched into the skin,” Jaliman said. “So if you’re in your 20s and you start to see lines coming, then why not do it early and prevent it? And to me it’s just like exercise.”

Many young patients are opting for thermage and exilis treatments.

Non Invasive Cosmetics

 

thermage

 

Patients prefer less invasive and more natural cosmetic treatments for their face and bodies for fat loss skin tightening, and stretch marks.

Less invasive and minimally invasive treatments grow at Precision Aesthetics 2014, with natural treatments for body shaping, fat loss and stretch marks leading the way.

January 2014 Precision Aesthetics Surpasses the 50th Country from Which It Has Attracted Patients for a Thermage Skin Tightening Treatment

Many patients travel more than 5000 miles to Precision Aesthetics in New York for their expertise in Thermage and other cutting edge technologies.

January 2014 Precision Aesthetics Surpasses the 50th Country from Which It Has Attracted Patients for a Thermage Skin Tightening Treatment

Precision Aesthetics is recognized as one of the world’s best providers of Thermage. The best Thermage Treatment is a result of the newest equipment combined with the best operator techniques. Because experience counts, many patients fly to New York from every corner of the world as well as the US, to have their treatments done or “redone” at Precision Aesthetics. Patients come from Australia, New Zealand, China, Korea, Singapore, and many countries in the Middle East, the Ukraine and Europe. Depending on the technique utilized, Thermage can tighten skin, smooth skin, thicken the collagen layer, or melt fat. It’s not too hard to imagine that using the wrong technique in the wrong area would actually be counterproductive. Precision Aesthetics was the first provider in New York, with the NXT, 16.0 body tip, and the CPT vibrating hand piece. Precision Aesthetics has been recognized by Thermage as New York’s only Black Diamond and Pinnacle provider for over 7 years. “Many of our patients have previously been treated in different countries or states,” said John Aslanian managing director. They recognize Thermage as a safe effective treatment but are now seeking an even better result. “In fact so many of our patients come from the Ukraine, Russia, and Brazil that we have hired staff that speaks Russian, Portuguese and Spanish,” continued Aslanian.Lisa A. Zdinak is the medical director of Precision Aesthetics. As a physician trainer and lecturer, she has spent years training her staff in her unique and proprietary techniques. Dr Zdinak was also the first physician to offer Carboxytherapy in New York for stretch marks and dark under eye circles, and did the original studies on them. Precision Aesthetics is unique in the fact that they use proprietary technology that makes a more comfortable Carboxytherapy treatment. Rounding out its offerings for body shaping and contouring is yet another first, Exilis, another radio frequency technology from the Czech Republic. Acoustic Wave, another technology, has found its niche at Precision, treating cellulite. Finally the most recent addition for body shaping and fat loss is the Illumiwave Lipocontour 635. The Illumiwave Lipocontour utilizes the cold laser wavelength of 635nm to allow fat to literally leak out of the cells. This wavelength was originally introduced by Zerona. However the Illumiwave has multiplied the power 500% and quadrupled the number of active laser diodes affording the patient a much more effective treatment. Precision Aesthetics is located at 10 West 74th St, steps off Central Park West. Each room has individual climate controls, iPod docks and spa style recliners, and was custom designed for maximum patient comfort and privacy. Dr Zdinak is constantly searching the world for the most advanced effective treatments and products for her patients. In fact she recently reached an agreement to bring Sepai, Spain’s leading skin care line, to her patients in the US. Dr Zdinak also formulated her own skin care vitamin line, Genetiskin, to insure her patients receive the best possible nutrition for their skin as well. Precision Aesthetics is also the New York distributor for Ultraceuticals, the leading doctor dispensed skin care line in Australia.

Over the past 12 years many of the new treatments that have evolved are more natural, completely natural or use the bodies own resources to create the desired result. Look at Thermage for example. You can go for surgery, a facelift, the popular mini face-lift or liposuction for fat or loose skin on your face or body. But if you look at the before and after pictures of non-surgical procedures like Thermage you will see similar results to surgical procedures. It is even more apparent comparing to the popular mini face-lift and for patients that are not in need of dramatic revision. There are terrific results for the face and every single part of the body. In addition the worst outcome from Thermage, Exilis or any other minimally invasive procedure is that a person doesn’t achieve as much of a result as they might be expecting. But even that should be rare if they were given proper expectations at their consult. Surgically, there is the possibility of scarring which could be extensive, lumpiness and loose skin after liposuction and worse. In fact Exilis is being used more and more to help with lumpiness after liposuction.

English: Suction-assisted lipectomy of bilater...

Let’s take a look at what the patients are gravitating towards. Every article and magazine will tell you that nonsurgical procedures are the fastest growing segment. Within this category there are minimal invasive and even what anyone would have to admit are natural treatments. Younger patients are requesting PRP short for proteinprotein rich plasma or the so-called Dracula facelift over Botox for wrinkles that are just beginning. Using the growth factors from your own blood versus the most powerful neurotoxin on the planet is a pretty clear example of a purely natural solution. The growth factors literally repair wrinkles vs. paralyzing a muscle with Botox. PRP (the bodies own protein rich plasma) is also used for overall facial rejuvenation and sometimes instead of Restyling and other fillers. Carboxytherapy is another example of using the body naturally, every single cell in our bodies take in Oxygen and excrete Carbon Dioxide. That principle is utilized to increase circulation with minute injections of carbon dioxide to improve cellulite, stretch marks and dark under eye circles. The list goes on and on. Cryotherapy facials increase circulation to the face. Another fascinating discovery was acoustic wave therapy, which was originally used for physical therapy to speed recovery of the muscles. The acoustic wave stimulates the muscle to repair more quickly. Apparently the side effect was that deep stimulation improved cellulite, which was ironically discovered by female athletes after doing physical therapy. They reported an improvement of their cellulite. Dr Zdinak and Precision Aesthetics were contacted by a major manufacture to further investigate this phenomena and the rest is history. Finally we are seeing cold lasers come of age led by Illumiwave for hair growth, acne, and fat loss. Cold lasers are much less invasive than hot lasers. As the name implies they are literally cold or don’t even produce any heat but still stimulate our cells in various ways.

The fact that patients are choosing minimally invasive more natural safer treatments is a great trend that will only continue to grow. Dr Lisa Zdinak, Chief Surgeon and Medical director of Precision Aesthetics has spent years bringing no less than 12 new technologies and products from various countries to the United States for her patients. She has put aside surgery to spend more time to research and bring the best natural and minimally invasive solutions for her patients. She is on the forefront of technologies like personal creams utilizing patient’s own growth factors and other cutting edge technologies we will be hearing more about in the future.

Precision Aesthetics is located at 10 West 74th St steps of Central Park West in a discreet private boutique setting for those seeking the ultimate in privacy.

Thermage is the best treatment for the loose skin and laxity under the belly button. Here is the scientific reason.

First thermage is FDA approved for skin tightening, if you look at the FDA clearance on Velashape  is indicated for dermal heating, not skin tightening. Thermage is also a stronger machine, working at the highest Mg Hz on the market for a RF device. Thermage is monopolar, so it is able to work deeper into the skin to effect change, thereby penetrating at least 4.2 mm into the skin, while velashape at its max is 1.5mm. Since the Dermis, which is the main collagen structure of your skin is deeper than 1.5 mm it makes more sense to utilize the machine that treats the dermis.

Melatonin For Sleep

If this file appears stretched, I have no clue...

If this file appears stretched, I have no clue why, (it appears that way on my computer). I uploaded a fixed version, and you can see it when clicking to get the full version, but for some reason it doesn’t show it that way. Melatonin (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

How many of us are finding it more and more difficult to fall asleep at night, and stay asleep? When this happens most of us blame it on some sort of stress, or find some other excuse to blame it on. Yes, in fact we all get stressed out over money problems, work, traffic, relationships, kids, and for many other reasons. But stress isn’t the only cause of not being able to fall asleep at night. For many years, we have been aware of the positive role that the hormone Melatonin plays in our lives, especially when it comes to the subject of what Melatonin contributes to us being able to get a good nights sleep. In addition to it being used to ease insomnia, it has been used to protect our cells from free-radical damage, combat jet lag, to boost our immune system, prevent cancer and to extend life. Melatonin has shown the most promise in short-term regulation of sleep patterns, including jet lag. Early animal studies in the mid-1960s revealed its ability to affect sexual function, skin color, and other mammalian functions. Melatonin is one of the hormones produced by the pineal gland in all vertebrates. In addition to being produced in vertebrates, melatonin is also found in plants, bacteria, unicellular eukaryotes, and invertebrates.

Normal melatonin secretion is suppressed by light and stimulated by periods of darkness. Nocturnal secretion of Melatonin is at its highest during childhood, and then decreases as we get older.  Research has shown that Melatonin also functions as an important antioxidant, and is involved in the body’s immune response. The synthetic versions have not been evaluated by the FDA for safety, effectiveness or purity, and all potential risks and/or advantages may not be fully known or understood. There are no regulations or manufacturing standards presently in place for the synthetic versions of the compound.
The use of melatonin derived from animal pineal tissue may carry the risk of contamination or the means of transmitting viral material. The synthetic form of this medication does not carry the risk however. There is little or no evidence of any major toxicities with melatonin, even at high doses. Possible adverse reactions might include depression, dizziness, enuresis, excessive daytime somnolence, headache, and nausea, and of course drowsiness if you drive after taking Melatonin. When given to animals, Melatonin caused some changes in blood pressure and affected fertility levels. Such effects in humans would be a medical risk for people with heart-related problems, hypertension and stroke, kidney disease and sleep apnea as well as for women of child-bearing age, so it is always wise to consult your physician prior to starting a routine intake of any herbal/health supplement such as synthetic Melatonin. Overall, research indicates improved sleep when Melatonin is taken at the appropriate time for jet lag and shift work, or to help speed up falling asleep. Appropriate dosage and any safety risks will become clearer with further research.

Exilis: Non Surgical Fat Removal

This fantastic technology, using the new Exilis device, is literally the ‘wave’ of the future for non surgical fat removal. This is the latest in advanced technology to help achieve a more youthful appearance and is a highly effective approach in customizing individual anti-aging and skin tightening and body shaping tools.  Exilis is the newest FDA approved technological marvel that offers the unique combination of radiofrequency energy (radiowaves) and oscillating mechanical waves for the first time to the United States marketplace.  Fat cells are actually stored in the body in lobules that are clustered like a bunch of grapes. These clusters are wrapped in a fibrous tissue layer like a hairnet that holds them together.

This fibrous tissue layer makes it virtually impossible to reach the fatty clusters without a liposuction cannula—until now. The Exilis uses the vibrations of oscillating mechanical waves to rattle the fat lobules out of their fibrous cage, and then blasts them with the radio-frequency heat to ramp up their metabolic activity and shrink the size of the fat cells.  This occurs in a painless and quick 20 minute office procedure with no downtime or limitations on your activities!

Dread taking off time from work?

All of us dread taking time off from our jobs especially to take care of some cosmetic condition we have. Most of us put off taking care of cosmetic issues as long as we can and most of us are embarrassed to even acknowledge or discuss these issues.

Fda

There are several reasons for this including down time, costs, continuing visits, etc.  Well, thats all in the past with the introduction of the Thermage Procedures by Dr. Lisa Zdinak, a trained molecular geneticist and cosmetic laser surgeon, with successful practices in Manhattan’s Upper East Side and in Palm Beach.

You can have tighter, smoother skin, softened wrinkles and lines and an overall a more youthful appearance. The procedures are FDA approved and only performed by certified physicians in your area.

Aerospace Gets Bigger in the South Bay

The South Bay was grown on the Aerospace industry. Many movies have reminded us of our spacey past .

Who can forget the Falcon and the Snowman? The Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn characters from their Palos Verdes upbringing and Hutton living in Hermosa Beach while he worked at TRW.
Much of the wealth of the South Bay was born from the space race and cold war. Then along came the 90s. The cold ware ended and many of the contracts left town.
