The Difference Between Fat Reduction and Weight Loss

on Thursday, 02 April 2015. Posted in Fat Reduction

How CoolSculpting Yields Permanent Results

It's a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. They're not.

When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again.

However, the CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Obviously, fat cells that are no longer there can't get bigger.

And unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical weight loss procedures, results from the CoolSculpting procedure are lasting because once the fat cells are eliminated, they're gone for good. Whether or not you weigh less, you'll be thinner and your clothes will fit better, feel better, and look better.

 

Weight Loss

Fat cells shrink in volume after coolsculpting procedure

When you lose weight, your fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells stays the same. When you gain weight, your fat cells become larger again.

FAT REDUCTION AFTER THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE

before and after coolsculpting treatment eliminated targeted fat cells

After the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated areas actually have fewer fat cells. And unlike what happens with other procedures, there's no change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.

Results and experience may vary.

The "Green Goddess" Smoothie For Detox and Glowing Skin

on Monday, 16 March 2015.

Green Detox Smoothie

Recipe by cHow Divine
 

Green “Goddess” Smoothie Recipe
Serves 1 person as a meal replacement or
Serves 2 people as part of a meal
Ingredients
3-5 romaine lettuce leaves
1 BIG handful of baby kale
~5 sprigs of parsley
1/2 large lemon or 1 small lemon
1 small fuji apple
1 small banana
2 TB ground flax seeds (or combination of flax and chia seeds)
~1 cup of water
~5 ice cubes
1/16 tsp of stevia (optional)
1/2″ ginger (optional)
1/2 – 1″ cucumber cylinder (optional)

  1. Add romaine, kale, parsley, lemon, apple, ginger, cucumber, and water to the vitamix or blender. Close the lid tightly. Slowly turn up the variable up to 10. This should just break down the contents. It will look slightly lumpy. It should only take about 10 seconds using the variable knob for the contents to break down in a vitamix.
  2. Add rest of the ingredients to the vitamix or blender. Turn the vitamix or blender on. If using a vitamix, turn the variable knob to 10, then to high. Blend on high for about 45 seconds – 1 minute until completely smooth. If you are using a different blender, it may take longer.

Acne Series: Part Three - Blackheads

on Monday, 23 February 2015.

ACNE SERIES: BLACKHEADS. Pores that get clogged up with your body's natural oil are called blackheads, from their dark appearance. To eliminate them, steam (by holding your face over boiling water) and use an oil-free moisturizer. Exfoliate after each steaming session to kill bacteria. Also, try to use skin care products that contain salicylic acid. For additional help, call Le MedSpa at 256.SKIN (7546).
Next Time: Whiteheads.

Acne Series: Part Two - Cystic Acne

on Wednesday, 18 February 2015.

ACNE SERIES: CYSTIC ACNE. A severe bacteria infection clogging the pore is the cause. Cystic acne often shows up as small, tender boils under the skin that can cause scarring, and is one of the most difficult forms of acne to treat. To prevent it from occurring, keep your pores clean. Acne treatments that contain L-carnitine, as well as glycolic and lactic acids, help to keep your pores free of blockages. Gentle laser treatments such as Rejuvapen and Silk-Peel are also available and very effective. Next Time: Blackheads.

Acne Series: Part One - Hormonal Acne

on Wednesday, 18 February 2015.

ACNE SERIES: HORMONAL ACNE. Where a zit lands on your body is almost completely connected to what kind of acne it is. Hormonal acne may occur about a week before a woman's period, and appears around the mouth, chin, and jaw. Prevention, of course, is the best approach. Be proactive around that time, and apply your facial cleansers and oil free moisturizer daily. If you need further assistance, please call Le MedSpa at 256.SKIN (7546). Next Time: Cystic Acne.

Fountain of Youth for Men

on Wednesday, 07 January 2015.

Injection_male_face Blog

Men are more aware of their appearance than ever, wanting to look as good as their regimens of healthy diet and exercise help them feel. In an effort to stay in the game, more men are turning to treatments and procedures that help turn back visible signs of aging.
 
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), men accounted for nearly 10 percent of cosmetic procedures in 2013.
 
With age, the face loses its natural fat, and this is most obvious in runners and those with low body fat low percentages. Men often develop a horizontal line under the eye that is caused by the loss of this facial fat.  Injecting a filler in the mid-face can take decades off a man’s appearance, and if done properly, it’s undetectable.

You can have confidence knowing that all injections from Le MedSpa are performed by Dr. Richard E. Stiefler, who is highly trained in the art of injections.

 

New Laser in Town!

on Wednesday, 17 December 2014.

Excel_V_courtesy_of_Joely_Kaufman Blog

The vast majority of people suffer from some kind of skin condition, either chronic or cosmetic, which causes unsightly broken blood vessels, discoloration, and lesions to appear on the face and legs.  These conditions can seriously impact one’s quality of life, causing embarrassment, self-consciousness, or even depression.

Le MedSpa is pleased to offer Excel V, a new, state-of-the-art laser technology for treating those types of skin conditions. It uses a high power green laser to target abnormal blood vessels and pigment in the skin, causing the vessels or pigment cells to be eliminated. The treated skin thereupon returns to its natural color and tone.

Excel V can be altered to be compatible with each patient’s skin condition. Its adjustable spot size allows precise and effective treatment of both superficial and deeper problems. To ensure patient comfort, Excel V also uses new cooling technologies to produce continuous cooling before, during, and after the laser pulse.

 

Conditions Treated with Excel V:

  • Rosacea
  • Telangiectasia
  • Leg Veins
  • Facial Veins (red and blue)
  • Venous lake (purple lesions on lips)
  • Diffuse redness of the face and neck skin
  • Scars and keloids
  • Sebaceous hyperplasia (dilated oil glands)
  • Port Wine Stain
  • Hemangiomas
  • Cherry Angioma
  • Freckles
  • Sun damage pigmentation
  • Warts
