Non Invasive Plastic Surgery

We all have seen the results of bad invasive plastic surgery . It is so unnecessary with the many non invasive procedures there are today.

These procedures are all done in the office and produce natural results. Thermage for instance actually is a slow process that gradually produces results over a couple of months, Although you need see some immediate results, it just gets better and better. This makes the change(s) less drastic at one time making a more natural change.

And of course the other plus is that there is not down time for recuperating and is much more dangerous.

Exilis Body Contouring

Exilis is the newest technological marvel that offers unique  radiofrequency energy(radio waves)  for the first time to the United States marketplace. It used to be that the only way to remove fat from the body was liposuction, which requires an incision (scar) and downtime from regular daily activities.  Of course the old standbys of dieting and exercise still work wonders.

To understand how Exilis works you must know how the body stores fat and fat cells. 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.

Exilis is a painless and quick procedure with no downtime or limitations on your activities!   The technology used by the Exilis device is literally the ‘wave’ of the future.

What is Thermage and Does it Really Work?

Everyday, thousands of computer users will go online to get information about the Thermage Procedures for erasing fine lines and wrinkles on their bodies. Most inquires ask what Thermage is and does it work?

What is Thermage:
Thermage is gaining in popularity across the nation as the safe alternative to plastic surgery.  Thermage is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that effectively eliminates subtle signs of aging in the face and around the neck, legs, tummy and buttocks and other body areas.  It is FDA approved and the treatments are performed only by certified physicians, nationwide.  During Thermage treatments, high levels of heat are applied to the different areas of the body using radio frequency energy, and during the heating process, collagen rebuilds itself and over time, tightens the skin and smoothes out lines and wrinkles. Just prior to a Thermage treatment, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the area of treatment, and this numbs the skin so the patient does not feel any pain during the treatment.  Anesthesia is usually not used during Thermage treatments. Most Thermage treatments last about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Results:
The results of the thermage procedure will vary according to the patient’s skin and collagen fiber production.  Patients who have healthier skin tend to experience more dramatic results.  Over the months following the treatment, the patient’s skin should gradually improve.  The gradual improvements are a result of the skin tissues healing with gradual collagen production.

Hard Bodies

While at my gym doing my daily, and almost un-noticeable daily-after-work workout routine, I could not help but notice how hard some of the guys worked at the equipment, with little positive results shown. I’ve belonged to this gym now for about 10 months and have made some friends and know where some of us started and have watched the progress on some and total lack of any positive results on others over this period.  I cant help but think that many of these guys would be good patients for trying the ‘Thermage Stomach’ Procedure’ that is so popular now.

ba_30_before

The ‘Thermage Stomach Procedure’ is especially designed for those who are not real over-weight, but maybe just carrying some extra flab around the middle, or on the legs and arms.  What’s really great is that there is little down time and your right back  doing what you please fast and you will see the positive results right away.

After the procedure, some patients report a noticeable smaller waist, looser fitting clothing and skin that feels firmer and tighter with improved tone. ba_30_afterYou will notice smoother skin texture also.  Many patients see noticeable reductions in deep wrinkles and healthier skin texture. After treatment, some patients that had been suffering from stretch-marks, say their stretch marks are less noticeable and much smoother.  In general, patients with mild to moderate skin sagging experience some contouring and lifting almost immediately. Immediate results are visible and usually continue to improve for up to six months. The ‘Thermage Procedure’ is fast and easy, and requires no downtime from everyday activities. Unlike lasers, the procedure can be performed on patients of all skin colors.

I’ve told   several of my gym buddies about this great FDA approved procedure and many are trying it and liking the results. These procedures can only be performed by a  certified physician in his office.  Its safe, fast and you can see speedy results. And, there is no knives or surgery involved.  What more can you ask for?

Would thermage done on the lips help with lip wrinkles

For facial treatments, Thermage can treat sagging skin, loose jowls, lack of jawline definition, sagging neck skin, wrinkles and fine lines, and lack of definition of the lips.  The Thermage Procedures also work wonders for wrinkled, crepey, sagging or bulging skin, and help with the appearance of cellulite.  Thermage Procedures are performed by certified physicians all over the globe and the procedures are bringing in rave reviews everywhere.  Most Thermage Procedures take about 45 minutes for facial problems and up to an hour and a half for most other body areas.  Of course this depends on the condition of the area, the location, treatment size, etc.  These procedures are short and most procedures only require a single treatment, so it will not disrupt any modern lifestyle or your daily routine.  A temporary redness or minor swelling goes away after around 24 hours. General anesthesia is not required, but to make sure you are comfortable the doctor may offer light pain medications prior to treatment.

Thermage uses hi-tech radio frequency technology to heat the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin which helps tighten existing collagen and stimulate formation of new collagen, resulting in reduced sagging, renewed contours and improves the texture and smoothness of the skins surface around the eyes, nose, neck and, yes, can help and a suggestion is to ask the certified physician about any specific questions you might have when setting up your first appointment.

CITY OF ROLLING HILLS ESTATES

Without a doubt, the four cities that are located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, are situated in an area that is one of the most beautiful and delightful areas to live anywhere in the world. The Palos Verdes Peninsula is on the southern edge of Los Angeles County, in the South Bay area called the Palos Verdes hills. The four cities located on the Peninsula are: Rancho Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Estates, Rolling Hills and Rolling Hills Estates. The four cities were originally formed to offer a different and more rural lifestyle and protect the wildlife and the natural setting each occupied on the Peninsula.
The City of Rolling Hills Estates is a gated and private community and has the majority of commercial and retail businesses. It is often confused with its sister city, Rolling Hills. Rolling Hills Estates is a semi rural city occupying about 2200 acres. It has over 25 miles of bridal paths and many properties that are zoned for horses. It attracts those people who appreciate an equestrian atmosphere and lifestyle. The city was incorporated in 1957, mainly to preserve the unique rural residential and equestrian environment.
Sometimes Rolling Hills Estates is referred to as “The Heart of the Peninsula” due to the location of the Palos Verdes Peninsula’s main shopping and retail stores in the city. Within walking distance of Peninsula High School, this section of the city includes an open-air mall called The Avenue of the Peninsula, which has an ice-skating rink, major movie theater, top retail stores, and a variety of diverse services and restaurants.
Over the years since its incorporation, the city has annexed real estate properties that include already existing home developments, commercial or industrial property and other properties with special character or attributes. There are over 30 neighborhood areas within the community today, each with its own special character, architectural style and Homeowners’ Association. The City continues to take an active role in maintaining the high quality of life that makes this community such an attractive place to live.
Rolling Hills Estates is the center for most equestrian activities and on-going events. The Community Services Department of the City of Rolling Hills Estates operates the Howlett Park Equestrian Center and sponsors many of the equestrian related activities.
The children of Rolling Hills Estates are fortunate to be able to attend some of the highest award winning schools in the nation. All of the schools on
