Kybella vs CoolMini. Which Double Chin Treatment is Best?

A strong jaw line conveys strength, confidence, and youthfulness. It is no wonder so many Americans want one. Over 80 percent of patients surveyed say they'd like to eliminate some of the fat beneath their chins and give themselves a better defined neck. It's not as easy as it sounds. Your neck is one of the most difficult areas of your body to deal with. Fat cells here are extremely stubborn, and often don't respond to diet or exercise.

How Does CoolSculpting Really Work?

The number of fat cells in your body stabilizes between the ages of 13 and 20. These cells shrink and grow as you gain or lose weight, but the total number of cells never changes unless you do something to remove them. In the past, the only option for individuals looking to get rid of unwanted fat cells was liposuction. Now there's a new and easier option called Coolsculpting.

In a previous post, we discussed natural phenomena that cause aging in the face. Not only do the soft tissues in the face droop, but they also deflate. Both bone and soft tissue erode leading to an old-looking face. At Finesse Plastic Surgery, we advocate fat redistribution and augmentation to correct aging in the face.

Limelight Intense Pulsed Light

There are multiple options available to patients with blemishes and sun-damaged skin of the face, neck or chest. One of these is intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment. Introduced in the mid-1990s, IPL is now used to treat a variety of skin problems that occur from sun damage or aging. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons more than 620,000 patients received IPL treatments in 2014.

Laser Spider Vein Treatment

If you are bothered by the unsightly appearance of spider veins, you are not alone. Many individuals, both men and women, will develop spider veins at some point in their lives. Spider veins occur when blood vessels dilate and appear as webs of blue, red and purple lines visible underneath the skin. These can occur anywhere on the body, but are most common in the legs and face. Many patients seek spider vein treatment because they are unable to hide them with concealer makeup or want to be able to wear shorts without feeling self-conscious.
