It seems a bit unnatural that thousands of microneedles to the face can create controlled punctures that induce collagen formation in the undereye area, but this is exactly what microneedling does!
The micro-wounds accelerate the healing process and as new cells are generated, the under eye area looks brighter when dullness and darkness are diminished. This should not be done at home because to be effective, the needles need to reach a certain depth, which is too painful without numbing. Getting one of the microneedling tools and using it at home will lead to ineffective, shallow abrasions that can get infected.
3. I’m 60 and with one Botox or fillers treatment I can look like I’m 30 again
Regardless of what you might see on TV or read on the net about how these procedures are like drinking from the fountain of eternal youth, that’s not exactly true. We all age, and Botox and fillers can only turn back the clock – not nail it into place permanently. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, fat descends, and bone resorbs. We need maintenance, and we have procedures for a liquid facelift or rejuvenation such as:
It is a fact that beauty is an investment, but the benefits far outweigh the expenses, especially when you want to look polished and youthful at work. Eating well, dealing with stress proactively, exercising moderately, relaxing, avoiding the sun, sleeping well, refraining from smoking, using medical-grade skincare and getting a Juvly Membership cuts down aesthetic costs significantly and ensures that you look great from month-to-month!
4. I can eat as much as I want after CoolSculpting
Thinking that you can throw caution to the wind and eat ad libitum after CoolSculpting is a myth that sets you up for disappointment. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, but it can be used for debulking and contouring.
Yes, there will be some fat loss, but this procedure is best to treat pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. However, it is true that you can lose 20-25% of fat in the treated areas. It is also true that these destroyed fat cells are gone for good once the fat is metabolized. However, to be really effective, CoolSculpting must be supported with a healthy lifestyle – this means mindful eating, smart food choices, adequate exercise, and stress management.
5. The new lasers make it possible for blondes, redheads, and light-haired people to undergo laser hair removal
We simply adore what our new lasers the Cutra and Lumenis (with IPL and ResurFx) can do! However, the technology is not yet advanced enough to treat people with darker skin or with very light hair. Laser seeks out the melanin in the hair follicles.
People with red hair, blond hair, predominantly grey hair, and white-silvery hair don’t have enough melanin in their hair follicles for the laser to successfully eliminate them. But for those who have darker hair, our new lasers can get you bikini-ready in as few as three sessions. It can’t be done in a single session because hair growth happens in several stages and lasers are most effective in the active phase, but with a few laser hair removal treatments, your hair will either lighten or disappear completely forever.
