Khloe Kardashian uses CoolSculpting!

Living in the public eye, Khloé has to deal with the backlash that comes with the change, which means stories that are flooded with tales of plastic surgery. “People say I’ve had my butt done or I’ve had liposuction. When I hear that I have fake body parts it frustrates me, but I also take it as a compliment. I bust my ass every day, so I get annoyed when people say I’ve had liposuction and my hard work gets discredited. Yet
 on the other hand, I take it as 
a compliment because it’s like 
I look that good that my butt looks fake,” she says.

In fact, the self-proclaimed Botox virgin says she doesn’t have an issue with plastic surgery or fillers for that matter. “I haven’t done Botox or anything like that yet, but I have no problem doing it. If I need filler, and when I do, because one day I will, I’m going to get it. But until then, I’ll do whatever I can to prevent wrinkles and aging.”

To preserve her looks, Khloé’s anti-aging routine weighs heavy in the facial oil department. “I’m like a creature of habit; I like what I like. I know that oils seem really heavy for your face, but they’re not. I noticed such a change in my skin and its elasticity, especially on my forehead.”

One beauty treatment she perks up about is lasers. “I love lasers and I do a ton of them on my face; I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. I do them more for discoloration, but they do tighten, too. I’ve also done CoolSculpting and treatments for the stretch marks on my butt. I’m a huge fan of lasers and I love them.”

Mariah Carey Slims Down with CoolSculpting

Mariah Carey Slims Down with CoolSculpting  mariah blog

 The ever-radiant Mariah Carey was all smiles at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and for good reason.  The superstar debuted a brand new body! But how did the mother of 4 year old twins lose so much weight so quickly?  “The conventional way of course,” the Carey insider says.  “Dieting and CoolSculpting!”

 Mariah Carey looked like a glowing holiday queen at this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  The songstress, who performed at the annual event, wore a flowing red gown that showed off her fabulous curves – and what appears to be a noticeably slimmer figure. “From the photos and from everything I’ve been following, she definitely has lost a significant amount of weight,” says Stephen Davis, MD, board-certified plastic surgeon.

So how did she do it?  Sources say CoolSculpting, a trademarked term for cryolipolysis (cold-assisted fat breakdown), is rising in popularity as a way to reduce fat without surgery.  The cosmetic procedure uses a special device to freeze a specific area of the body, killing the fat cells but leaving other tissue unharmed. And here’s the crazy thing:  “It actually works,” says weight loss expert Charlie Seltzer, MD, an obesity specialist in Pennsylvania.

A 2014 study in the journal Clinical, Cosmetic, and Investigational Dermatology concluded that “cryolipolysis is considered to be both safe and effective.”  It actually freezes the fat, causing an average reduction of 25% of the thickness of fat after one one-hour session with no scars or surgery.  This procedure is scientifically proven to work, and is used for all parts of the body, including the tummy, arms, love handles, back fat, man boobs, inner and outer thighs, and double chin.

The FDA first approved the device in 2010.   “It’s basically a suction applicator that pulls an area of fat inside the cup when you turn it on.  Once inside the applicator, the area gets super-cold.  For the first five minutes it feels like someone is pinching you and then it becomes numb.  In about an hour, the fat cells that have been sucked in become like a frozen stick of butter.  The area is massaged for two minutes to break up the fat cells and dissolve the stick of butter.

Why doesn’t the skin freeze and die, too?  Fat deposits are vascularized differently from skin and other surrounding tissues, which protects the skin but not the fat cells.

The treated fat cells are necrotized (that is, they die off), and the body eliminates the waste naturally over a period of weeks.  Within two weeks, the area might not look as full as it used to, and within four weeks, it will be “markedly changed.“

“The new photos of Mariah Carey on Thanksgiving suggest that she has lost at least 45 pounds in two months, “ says celebrity trainer, Charlene Ciardiello.  “She looks incredible.”

Botox Do’s and Don’ts

In this blog you’ll find a checklist for the things you should and shouldn’t do before you get Botox, during a Botox treatment, and after you get Botox injections so you can get the absolute best results. For more information on Botox, visit us for Botox in Fort Worth, send us an email or call us at (817) 484-0300 to request your free consultation!

What to do BEFORE Botox

Here are steps you should take to prepare for a Botox treatment so you ensure a good experience:

  • Be transparent with your practitioner – For your safety, tell your Botox practitioner as much about your medical history as possible so he/she can determine whether you are a good candidate to receive cosmetic Botox. Tell your doctor: What medication you are taking, what allergies you have, If you have any medical conditions, illnesses, or diseases, and anything else you can think of.
  • Be on the same page as your practitioner – Make sure both you and your physician are clear about what facial areas you want to treat, how you ideally want them to be fixed, and what the ideal final result may be. Different people have different aesthetics. For instance, if the “frozen face” look is your practitioner’s definition of successful Botox but you disagree, you better make sure both of you are aiming for the same target or you’ll end up with a result your practitioner thinks is beautiful but you think is horrific.
  • Have realistic expectations about what Botox can do – Botox results can be drastically good, but your post-Botox results may not be as perfect as you expect them to be. Having realistic expectations about your results will save you from unnecessary disappointment.
  • Stop taking medication that can thin the blood – A week before you get Botox injections, stop taking: Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Exedrin, St. John’s Wart, Vitamin E, Fish oil or Omega-3s, Ginko Bilboa, and Ginseng. This will minimize any potential post-Botox bruising. If you have to take pain medication, Tylenol is okay. Also, avoid drinking alcohol a few days before you get Botox.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Make a list of questions you want to ask your physician and bring it with you to your Botox consultation. That way you won’t forget what you want to ask. Ask how much the treatment will cost, how many units of Botox you will need, how long the he/she has been giving Botox injections, etc. Ask about side effects, risks, and how you should take care of your skin after Botox and how often someone with your skin condition should get Botox.

What to do DURING Botox

What you do during Botox is not as important as what you do before and after Botox, but here are some things you should keep in mind for a good treatment session:

  • Go au naturel – Your skin will be cleaned with rubbing alcohol or an antiseptic before you get Botox, so feel free to show up to your appointment with nothing on your skin. If you wear makeup, they will take it off anyway.
  • Stay still but pay attention – If you are afraid of needles, don’t make yourself writhe with discomfort by thinking about them. Set your mind on something random, like monkeys juggling pineapples. The Botox will be over before you know it. Stay still but pay attention and follow your practitioner’s instructions. He/she will tell you to smile, relax, frown, etc. during the injection process.
  • Use an ice pack – Ice before, during, and after Botox can help reduce any potential signs of bruising.

What to do AFTER Botox

What you do after Botox and how you take care of your skin is very important. Here are some things you should and shouldn’t do after getting Botox injections:

  • Don’t touch your the injection site
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity
  • Avoid consuming large amounts of alcohol
  • Avoid getting facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, etc. for 24 hours.
  • topical vitamin K and arnica can help bruises

Taking these measure before, during, and after Botox will help you get both a better experience and better results. For more information, visit our Botox service page, send us an email or call us at (817) 484-0300 to request your free consultation!

Five Benefits of Ultherapy

The Benefits of Ultherapy

Did you know Ultherapy is currently the only procedure approved by the U.S. FDA for lifting the skin? Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that utilizes ultrasound to treat the identified area of the skin. There are a variety of benefits of Ultherapy that can be derived from the procedure. It is designed to target the collagen-producing layer deep beneath the skin, revitalizing that layer.

If you’re considering a facelift but don’t want to undergo a surgical procedure, Ultherapy could be right for you. Because it is a non-invasive procedure, Ultherapy can give you quick results with virtually no down time. You can get back to your daily routine soon after treatment. Check out the five major benefits of Ultherapy. If you would like more information on Ultherapy, contact Skinique Med Spa today.

1. Non-Invasive Procedure

One of the most significant benefits associated with Ultherapy is the fact that it is a non-invasive procedure. Because of this fact, a person is able to obtain optimal results without going under the knife.

Because it is a non-invasive procedure, the side effects associated with surgery are avoided completely. This includes avoiding a prolonged recovery time as well as the risk of infection. In addition, Ultherapy is a painless procedure. An individual undergoing the procedure may experience a bit of mild discomfort, but that typically can be addressed during the course of the procedure itself.

2. Solid Results

Women (and even an increasing number of men) who have utilized the Ultherapy treatment end up with smoother, younger looking skin. The process restores a person’s skin vitality. The skin area treated with Ultherapy actually becomes firmer and tighter after the treatment is concluded. Indeed, most people who undergo Ultherapy treatment report significant improvement in the firmness and youthful appearance of skin.

3. Number of Treatments

One of the other significant benefits associated with Ultherapy is that most people receive the results they desire after only one treatment. In some instances, an additional treatment or a series of treatments is suggested for optimal results, however for some only one treatment is necessary.

4. No Recovery Period

UltherapyAs noted, Ultherapy does not have the recovery period associated with surgery. In fact, when a person undergoes Ultherapy, there is no recovery period whatsoever. A person is able to immediately return to her normal routines immediately after a treatment. For example, a person can return to work directly after an Ultherapy treatment.

5. Nearly Non-existent Side Effects

Another of the crucial, compelling benefits associated with Ultherapy is its lack of harmful, negative side effects. The treatment is virtually free of even the most minimal side effects. In the vast majority of cases, if there is any aftereffect associated with Ultherapy, it is flushed or slightly puffy skin. In some isolated cases, a person will experience very slight swelling.

With that said, even in those cases in which these minimal side effects do occur, they do not last long. If a person experiences one or another of these side effects, they will last only for a few hours in most instances.

Enjoy The Benefits of SkinPen

SkinPen

SkinPen Micro Needling

If you’ve been relying on expensive anti-aging creams or invasive procedures, there is good news: The SkinPen is a minimally invasive, quick and effective treatment to combat the effects of aging. If you’re hard-pressed for time, there is even better news: All you need is one hour for the SkinPen to start changing the appearance of your skin!

The SkinPen is being praised as the latest technology in minimally invasive skin treatments. It works as a facial rejuvenation treatment by using a technique called microneedling, in which very small needles are used to create controlled “damage” in the form of microscopic incisions. This stimulates the body’s collagen production as the natural defense to repair and rejuvenate the skin. The collagen works to tighten and contract the skin. The SkinPen can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the look of acne scars.

One of the best things about the procedure is that it typically takes only half an hour! Plus, microneedling doesn’t require much downtime. With the most common side effect being a sunburn-like pinkness of the skin and mild swelling, most people don’t need to take time off of work or hide their faces until they heal.

Even better, many people start to see results immediately, with the skin continuing to progress over the next several weeks. The skin may continue to improve for the next 3-6 months.

The segment also reported that nearly all the experts who were consulted agreed that CoolSculpting really works as long as it is performed on the right patient.

It takes about one hour to treat each area, and men are seeing excellent results.

All over the country, there is a growing trend among men to look better and feel better too. While many of them hit the gym and change their eating habits, they’re finding that they don’t always make all the progress they want. That’s where CoolSculpting comes in.

Fall & Winter 2014 Beauty Trends

With Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week already underway for spring and summer 2015 and the first day of fall steadily fast approaching on September 22, now is a better time than ever to review the top trends for fall and winter 2014 beauty.

Skin

Skin stays illuminated for fall and winter, never falling flat or dull. Bronzer is even welcomed this season using it to help sculpt the face. Highlighter used on cheekbones warms up the skin to not look as frigid as it may be outside. Natural shades of blush are used mostly now, or a varied shade of merlot for those deep winter months.

Eyes

Color is no longer just for the spring and summer months. Any shade of blue on the—either applied as a shadow, thick winged liner, or smudged along the bottom lash line would make clients perfectly on trend. Metallic silver, bronze and gold liquid shadows and liners are a must for winter. Match clients’ eyelids to the way snow sparkles and they’ll be sure to shine at any holiday party.

Liner goes wide this season—seen on the runways, forget the perfect winged cat eye. Go over and out with eyeliner— over the crease and out past the eyebrow. Use the same color liquid liner to fill in the eyes—think of a teardrop shape, but sideways. This eye trend looks like poised drama.

Lips

The look for lips this season is very much dependent on what’s happening with the eyes. With so much drama happening with eyes, it’s best to keep lips subtle. If it is a simple black wing lining the eyes then go for lipstick shades of burgundy, velvet purple or even classic red.

Natural lips were everywhere during Fashion Week, all changing in tone to match the model’s natural skin tone. If browns start to bore clients, layer a shimmery pink gloss on top or go for matte pale pink lips.

Nails

Nude nails are your new BFF. The understated look never seemed so chic. After all these past seasons of nail art, nude nails are the unexpected punch to any outfit. There are so many options in the nude family to fit anyone’s style—sheer baby pink, light tan, dark tan, even brown polishes are all the right shades.

Classic red nail polish—the perfect power color is good year round, but in the winter months. Just be careful not to reach for the red with orange undertones— that’s more of a summer fire-red. Reds that border on brown undertones are much more fall and winter-friendly.Nail art is more refined for this fall and winter. Try a simple stripe down a nail, off center is all the better. Simple half moon manicures are amped up by pairing metallic shades with shimmer free polish. Metallic nail polish is artsy enough for fall and winter.
