Most Common Cosmetic Dermatologic Procedures

ASDS Consumer Cosmetic Dermatologic Procedure Survey Recently, the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery released their consumer survey of Cosmetic Dermatologic procedures.   There were many interesting findings why patients were seeking such procedures and what procedures they were looking for. Who influenced these consumers regarding their procedures? Surprisingly, while 50% of these consumers listed their Dermatologist as the most important, more than 40% listed their friends and more than 30% listed their primary care physician.  This indicates the importance of referrals from friends and families as well as the importance of other physician specialties in the recommendation of cosmetic procedures. Why are consumers exploring cosmetic dermatologic procedures? These finding were very interesting and also not surprising.  Consumer comments included “I want to feel more confident”, “I want to appear more attractive”, and “I want to look as young as I feel or better than my age”.  These are common refrains that we hear from our patients at Beleza Medspa.  When asked for reasons why they are waiting for such procedures they commented “Cost”, “May be painful” and “May not get the results I am looking for”.  Beleza medspa tries to reduce such concerns by offering specials and deals, less invasive and painful procedures and by trying to offer only procedures that are proven to be clinically effective. What are consumers bothered by? Again, these findings were interesting and not surprising.  The top body concerns were: “Excess weight on any part of the body”, “Line and wrinkles under the eyes”, “Excess fat under the chin/neck” and “Skin texture and or discoloration”.  Beleza Medspa offers solutions for all of these concerns including to lose fat, for eye wrinkles, double chins and skin texture and pigment problems. What are the most common Cosmetic Dermatologic Procedures? The most popular procedures included body sculpting, treatments to tighten skin or smooth wrinkles using ultrasound, laser, light, or radiofrequency, microdermabrasion and laser hair removal.  Beleza Medspa offers Liposuction and Coolsculpting, Ultherapy, Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing, ThermiVa and Hydrafacials (replacing microdermabrasion). Which procedures did consumers find the most satisfying? Consumers rated the following procedures as most satisfying: injectable wrinkle relaxers and fillers, body sculpting,  laser and light treatments for redness, tone or scars, laser tattoo removal, vein treatments and chemical peels.  Beleza Medspa offers many of these procedures including Botox, Xeomin and Juvederm, Coolsculpting and Liposuction, IPL Photofacials, Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing, Sclerotherapy and Chemical Peels. How much do consumers pay for skin care? Almost 80% of Consumers reported spending up to $100 a month on skin care products and more than half would prefer to pay more up front to lower their costs annually.  Beleza Medspa has several programs designed specifically to lower the costs for regular skin care including the Beleza Babe Vip Program and the Fresh Skin Club.…

Kybella Double Chin Can Save Your Selfies!

Ways to Get Rid of Double Chin Admit it. It’s bothered you for years. Having a double chin is a bummer. It literally ruins a photograph at the drop of a hat, particularly those coveted selfies. Let me guess – you’re dying to get rid of it, but an invasive, expensive surgical procedure isn’t exactly what you are looking for, am I right? Well, your prayers have been answered, my friend. I am here to tell you it’s time to get serious about zapping your double chin without surgery (unless you’re dying to hide under turtle-necks again this year!) Kybella Double Chin Injections Discover Kybella: a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for the double chin. Kybella is an FDA approved injectable drug designed specifically for the treatment of moderate to severe submental fat (double chin). In an approximately 15-20 minute procedure, a series of small injections are made into the double chin fat. Kybella consists of a naturally occurring compound, deoxycholic acid, which is manufactured by the body to help digest fat. When injected into fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once the cells are destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After 2-3 treatment sessions (spaced at least 30 days apart), visible reduction of submental fat can be noticed. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with Kybella is not expected, but can vary for each patient. As a Top 25 Allergan Aesthetic Practice in the country, all Beleza MedSpa injectors receive the highest level of training from Allergan directly. Our medical professionals are highly experienced in administering Kybella and can answer any questions you may have about the process. They will also customize a treatment plan to meet your needs and desired goals. Give us a call today to book your free consultation at one of our four locations: 1.800.509.9785.

Liposuction for Men

Liposuction for Men: More Common than You Think! Liposuction has become an increasingly accepted method of body contouring by the public.  With the safety of local tumescent anesthesia and the advent of technologies to improve results, liposuction is now a popular method of body sculpting. However, like many cosmetic surgery procedures, most of the patients are female.  Women tend to be more concerned about their looks and accepting of procedures to improve them.   Women as a whole, also tend to be more concerned with aging.  However, there has been a recent trend of more and more men seeking plastic surgery procedures. Plastic surgery has become more widely accepted, safer, cheaper and with less downtime.  This is probably why Lipo for Men has become so popular.  Most men do not like to go to the doctor even when they are sick, let alone for a cosmetic procedure.  But now with most liposuction office based and performed under local anesthesia, men are beginning to show more interest.  The ability to have liposuction performed and then be back to work and the gym in a few days, has revolutionized liposuction for men. What does Liposuction for Men have to offer? Just like many women, men are not immune to the epidemic obesity problem in America.  High levels of stress, poor food choices, eating out and lack of exercise can lead to big bellies, man boobs, love handles and double chins.   These are the main areas most men seek help with.  The fat around the waist, commonly called the ‘spare tire‘, is particularly resistant to weight loss and exercise.  This is where most men’s bodies will store fat when excess calories are consumed.   Women on the other hand, tend to store their fat on their legs, usually the thighs.  Liposuction for men is ideal to remove these fat cells and sculpt a sleeker abdomen.  This holds true for the love handles, which are an even more resistant fat than the abdomen.   They can easily be melted away with laser  and vaser liposuction, to take inches off the waist. Man boobs (moobs) or pseudogynecomastia, is due to excess fat deposition in the chest area.  It is ideally suited for liposuction using lasers and vaser ultrasonic energy.  Fat deposition under the chin is particularly troubling to many men.  The presence of a double chin, can age even a young man.  The loss of jawline definition further aggravates a man’s appearance.  This excess fat and loose skin, is ideally suited for Smartlipo laser liposuction.  The heat delivered by the laser can easily melt the fat which can then be suctioned off.  Even more important, the laser heat causes collagen stimulation and skin tightening.  The results are dramatic and life-changing. What do I do if I am interested in Lipo for Men?
