Enhance UltraShape Results by Detoxing!

Detox Your System for UltraShape Treatments
Benefits UltraShape Treatments!

Cleanse your body with Detox teas. We also recommend detoxing a few days prior to an UltraShape treatment to enhance the flow of released fat triglycerides.

The most important part about your teatox, though, isn’t even in what tea you choose—it’s in what else you eat: “Tea can only be medicinal and detoxifying if your diet isn’t taxing your system, which most American meals are guilty of,” Lagano says. In order to truly detoxify your body, cut processed and fried foods, and up your intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and anti-inflammatory fats like avocados and almonds.

Once your diet is clean and gentle on your body, detoxifying teas can begin to enhance your natural organ function.

So what are the best leaves to choose?

1. Traditional Medicinals EveryDay Detox Dandelion: Dandelion aids liver function by helping to remove toxins and reestablish hydration and electrolyte balance ($5; traditionalmedicinals.com  )

2. Twining’s Lemon & Ginger: This revitalizing tea is great for the morning because it’s light caffeinating will wake you up without wreaking havoc on your stomach. Plus in a 2011 Columbia University study, people who drank hot ginger teas felt fuller after a meal and reported less cravings later. ($3; twiningsusa.com  )

3. Yogi DeTox: In addition to the inspirational messages on every tea bag, this particular Yogi tea variety includes burdock and dandelion to help your liver, and juniper berry to enhance your kidney function ($5; yogiproducts.com  ) (great for UltraShape)

4. Celestial’s Sleepytime Decaf Lemon Jasmine Green Tea: With chamomile and mint to calm the system, recommended a cup before bed. Plus, it’s high vitamin C content means it’s chock full of antioxidants ($3; celestialseasonings.com  )

What is Prerejuvenation? Prejuvenation is being proactive about your skin - not reactive. Makes sense, right? Its much easier to maintain and slow down the aging skin process versus correcting skin that already has alot of sundamage and collagen loss. The concept is to start treatments before there is an issue (as to prevent aging skin) so that it will prolong more aggressive treatments for later in your life.   Again..makes sense, right? So what should you do? There are many short, no downtime procedures that are ideal PreRejuvenation treatments.

Remember -Be Proactive not Reactive.

Here's what we recommend: Muscle Relaxers: Botox, Dysport etc, Chemical peels, Fillers, Laser Collagen Stimulation and a Medical Grade Skin Care regiment.


Muscle Relaxers  : Millions of people recognize the name Botox, Dysport etc. These wrinkle reduction injections is a quick virtually painless treatment that has no downtime and prevents the muscle from becoming stronger and thus increasing the wrinkle depth.   Common areas to begin Botox is crows feet, frown lines (glabella) and forehead lines. Treating these areas before lines are “etched in” is the basic concept of PreRujvenation.

Dermal Fillers  : Dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid (HA) are used to improve the minor volume loss which occurs with age. Subtle enhancements can be added to the mid cheek and around the eye to delay premature volume loss. HA fillers are also used to plump up the lips to create a youthful appearance.

Chemical Peels or Light Laser Peel  : Exfoliate and reverse early sun damage. Rrenews the texture and pigmentation and leaves a youthful and glowing quality to the skin.

LaserCollagen Stimulation: This no downtime, non-invasive laser treatments uses radio-frequency to provide deep skin penetration which stimulates collagen and prevents it from going dormant. Additionally, the intense heat retracts skin to maintain taunt, tight skin.

Medical Grade Skin Care Products  : Your body needs to drink water. Your skin needs nutrients to maintain healthy skin cells. Great skin care is imperative to the foundation of great skin. Its important to use some type of Retin A or Retinol for maintaining youthful skin. A good product line with small particles for easy penetration is ideal. These products lead to increased turnover of the skin cells (pigmentation problems), thicken the skin, and create more hydrated skin. Of course moisturizer and sun block is or should be on your daily regiment. We also highly recommended applying the newest addition to a product line: stem cell growth factors are important to the skin to reverse the aging process.

Everyone has a spot... you know, that body area that no matter how much more dieting,

fat-burning cardio or ab work you do, nothing changes...that is, until now.

Many women begin to research vaginal rejuvenation when they notice a visual change in appearance of their labia or an internal dryness or sexual sensation loss. According to Webmd.comVaginoplasty   is a procedure that aims to "tighten up" a vagina that's become slack or loose from vaginal childbirth or aging.

RealSelf  reports a 93% satisfaction rating for vagina rejuvenation. Vaginal rejuvenation is essentially a facelift for the vulva and vagina. It often combines a vaginoplasty   (tightening of the vaginal wall, specifically at the entry point to the vagina) and labiaplasty   (labia reduction) to improve its outer appearance for a refreshed look and feel.

If considering vaginal rejuvenation then exploring the non-surgical route is definitely your best option to start with.  A Laser treatment with Exilis Ultra Femme 360 can be extremely effective and offers the best solution for a non-surgical treatment.

Exilis ULTRA Femme is the only technology of its kind providing complete vaginal rejuvenation including labial remodeling (labia reduction) and vaginal tightening with a single device. The ULTRA Femme 360 procedure tightens and raises the labia, decreases the diameter of the introitus (vaginal opening) and the vaginal canal, improves natural lubrication, improves sensation, and can make orgasm easier to reach. Many patients also experience an improvement in stress incontinence from the treatment.

 ULTRA Femme 360 causes no pain or discomfort, requires no anesthesia, and has no downtime. It uses the body’s natural processes to stimulate collagen production and restore the vaginal and vulvar areas to a more youthful state.


According to initial results, 80% of tested subjects noted an improvement in appearance of the area as moderate to excellent.

Ultra Femme Treatment Areas:

Rejuvenation of the vagina and entire vulvar and area including:

  • Plumping of Labia Majora
  • Lifting and firming of Labia Minora
  • Tightening of Introitus (vaginal opening)
  • Tightening of Vaginal Canal
  • Tightening of Perinium
  • Increased Blood Flow to Clitoris
  • Increased Sensitivity & Improved Orgasm
  • Improvement in Stress Incontinence

There is no pain or irritation during the procedure, only a warming sensation. Treatment time is short, usually 20 – 30 minutes.

A treatment of four sessions, spaced one to two weeks apart is recommended to achieve the optimal results. Some improvements can usually been seen and felt immediately post treatment, with the full results being achieved 4 week after your final treatment as collagen will continue to remodel. Maintenance treatments may be recommended annually.

Different   lasers   are used to tackle different concerns  . “Everyone wants the best results with the shortest healing period, but that isn’t always possible,” says Valencia, CA, dermatologist Bernard I. Raskin, MD. “The lighter the laser, the easier the recovery, but the less extreme your results will be.

#1. Lighter lasers (low power=less recovery time) that  refine and minimize pores and fine lines

What It Is :Non-ablative fractional laser (Brand= Syneron Etwo, Level 1)

How It Works: The least invasive type of fractional resurfacing available, miniscule holes are made in skin to reveal fresher, smoother skin as it heals.

What It Costs: Starts at approximately $250

When to Do It: A month before a big event

The Recovery: Next to none, but the 30-minute treatment can leave you a little red for about one hour (you can put makeup on right away).

The End Result: Smoother skin that boasts a healthy glow. “Some patients like the results so much that they are having a this treatment once a month to quarterly instead of having a facial,”

#2  

Lasers that lighten pink and red pigment in the skin

What It Is: for Vascular Conditions (brand names: Vbeam, VPC, YAG)

How It Works: Uses laser energy to selectively pick up the red and pink pigment in broken capillaries, scars, redness and ruddy complexions to even out the skin, making it more uniform in color.

What It Costs: Starts at approximately $250

When to Do It: Anytime

The Recovery: None, although some patients may notice slight bruising or swelling.

The End Result: Less red   ness  in the skin. You can see that broken blood vessels are even sometimes diminished right away.

#3  

Lasers  that get rid of hair for good

What It Is: Nd:YAG, diode and alexandrite lasers (brand names: LightSheer , GentleLase, Gentleyag)

How It Works: Transmits a beam of energy to the skin that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, stopping the cycle of hair production. If your hair is gray or very light blond, laser hair removal  may not work since it will not pick up the color in the hair.

What It Costs: Starts at approximately $75

When to Do It: In the winter when your skin isn’t tan (a tan can hinder results and cause hyperpigmentation).

The Recovery :Not much other than some redness and bumpiness around the follicle.

The End Result: Fuzz-free, smooth skin after a series of treatments. Annual touch-ups may be necessary.

#4  
Lasers   that fight stubborn acne

The Tanda ZAP Power ($79) boasts a triple-threat of technologies—blue LED light, sonic vibration and gentle warming—that help clear and fade acne breakouts within 24 hours without pain, irritation or dryness.

#5  

Medium-strength lasers  that re-texturizes skin and smooths out mild acne scars, wrinkles and discoloration

Nonablative fractional laser ( Etwo - Med-High)

How It Works: This dermatologist favorite works by, “Damaging only small columns of skin, leaving normal skin in between each of the columns,” says Chestnut Hill, MA, dermatologist Jeffrey S. Dover, MD. Because the skin is safely injured, it doesn’t become damaged overall and heals faster. It’s also good for the hands, chest and neck.

What It Costs: Starts at approximately $350

When to Do It: In the middle of the winter. You don’t want to be in the sun at all after this laser, which can increase the risk of permanent pigmentation.

The Recovery: Your skin may be pink or red and will feel rough (like sandpaper) for two to three days afterward. “There will be some mild pain, redness and a raw feeling to the skin. Keeping the treated area moist as the skin begins to flake off is important, and no matter what, don’t pick at it or pull it.

The End Result: After a series of treatments (three to six) you’ll notice softer skin that is less red. Brown spots will lighten up and scars will flatten out. Provides an all-in-one treatment for several conditions.

#6  

Erase that unwanted tattoos

What It Is: ( Alexandrite and Yag Q-Switched)

How It Works: The laser hones in on tattoo pigment in the skin to lift up the color and lighten it. The darker the tattoo dye, the easier it is to treat. A course of treatments is necessary.

What It Costs: Starts at approximately $150

When to Do It: Anytime

The Recovery: A little crusting and swelling that lasts three to seven days

The End Result: Drastically lighter or completely erased tattoos

#7  

High energy lasers  that eliminate severe lines, wrinkles, sun damage, deep acne and traumatic scars

What It Is: Ablative fractional CO2 or erbium lasers  

How It Works: Ablative lasers employ the same technology as non-ablative versions just in a more powered version. Because of its long wavelength, ablative fractional lasers (specifically CO2 versions) go further into the skin. As long as the settings are adjusted accordingly, fractional CO2 lasers can be used on the full face or targeted areas such as upper eyelids, around the mouth, on the neck, chest and hands. Fractional CO2 lasers remodel collagen, which is why they produce such drastic results.

What It Costs: Starts at approximately $500

When to Do It: “It’s best to plan for a major laser procedure in the winter because there is less sun exposure and people typically have more time for healing,” says Dr. Alster. “Never undergo a laser treatment on a tan because that increases the risk of blisters and pigment changes.”

The Recovery: Typically takes seven to 10 days, but energy's can be shortened, so recovery will be more in the four to five day scenario.

The End Result: Skin will be a bit tighter and brighter overall and wrinkles will be considerably improved. The skin is remodeling itself, so as time passes you’ll look better. Typically 90 days post treatment is when you start to see more improvement, but it can take almost ocline year to see the final end result.

#8  

Lasers for Skin Tightening: (Syneron Sublime, BTL Exilis)

Over the age of 40 people begin to notice some looseness and laxity in their skin - often in the jawline/jowl area. Laser skin tightening provides surface collagen stimulation to retract skin. Typically 4-6 sessions are necessary depending on each persons needs. Also a great pre-aging treatment once a month or quarterly instead of a facial.

The Recovery: No downtime, mild redness only.

What it Cost: Starts at $300 per session.

The End Result: Lifting and tightness of skin. This is a building process so gradual improvement is seen 60-90 days post each treatment.

* Results Vary Person to person - (see disclosure for more information)
1. Prioritize your Lifestyle  : Eat Healthy, Sleep 8 hours, Drink 50-60oz of Water DAILY, and absolutely NO Smoking.
2. Preventative: Start young with Sunscreen (teach your teenagers!).  Even with sunblock you will get a tan..it will just be a more gradual process.
3. Retinoid (Retin A):  Your skin needs deep boosters  to keep skin cells stimulated for collagen production. It won't do it on its own! Medical Grade products is the preferred method for best penetration and depth.
4. Antioxidant Products: This helps with protecting the top layers of your skin - Our Vit C and EGF (epidermal growth factor) products is a must have. Again Medical Grade.
5. Laser Collagen Stimulation: Exilis Radiofrequency provides an excellent stimulant for deep collagen production. Ideally if you start at age 35 it keeps collagen production at its maximum potential.
6. Exfoliate! : Microdermabrasion and chemical or light laser peels keeps skin cells turning over and regenerating.
7. Eye Care: Keep crepey skin under control with Medical Grade Under Eye Cream and Exilis Laser Treatments to tighten skin.  Additionally, Botox is ideal to keep skin wrinkle free when you are smiling!
8. Lifestyle...Lifestyle.. Lifestyle!  
Repeat Step 1 with emphasis on water hydration.  More water..plumper skin. It's that simple

So, What does your FACE Need help with?

Wrinkles, lax skin, sun-damage or scars from acne? What should you do?

We have an answer: A laser treatment called Sublative Rejuvenation.  Instead of chemical peels or microdermabrasion, this treatment can improve so much more.  Sublative Rejuvenation uses radio frequency technology to tighten skin, erase fine lines, shrink large pores and heal previous acne scarring.

If you're currently doing microcurrent facials (that have short-lived results) at salons and spas it's time to move up to Sublative Radiofrequency treatments. Not only that - Patients can expect even more.  You also get tone, texture and sundamage improvement as a result of increased levels of collagen and elastin along with resurfacing of surface skin - and with results that last much longer!

The Sublative Rejuvenation treatment works by pushing fractional bipolor radiofrequency energy into the skin to initiate a healing response without causing too much damage to the surface of the skin. This allows for the most energy to get underneath  the skin to really where it can induce the most collagen production.

Even better...SUBLATIVE rejuvenation is safe for all skin types  — from light skin to dark skin or dry to sensitive to oily skin and everything in between, everyone is a candidate for the treatment!

Yeah!!  Love Sublative.

First off,  whatever you need to remember that whatever products you apply to your skin gets absorbed by your body - right down into your lymphatic system. That means everything in your skin care product inevitably becomes part of your system, inevitably. Be careful - alot of  skin care products contain many toxins – including carcinogens.

Now, let's take a look at   coconut oil  .


About Coconut Oil  

Coconut oil contains a variety of natural  vitamins and minerals.  It also possesses both anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.

Coconut oil is edible and it's a relatively inexpensive item.  It offers great healing properties and it helps you restore your skin  naturally.


Great Skincare Conditions it can Help With:  


1. Wrinkles

The dreaded anticipation of wrinkles. We know they're coming, so gear up with coconut oil to fight them off!

Coconut Oil has a plethora of antioxidants. Coconut oil protects your skin from the outdoor elements which break down skin cells.  Add on a medical grade  Vitamin A and E skincare product and you've got a rock solid foundation for collagen stimulation which helps keep your skin firm.

What about sagging skin? Coconut oil prevents skin sagging and wrinkles by maintaining the connective tissues in the skin.

 

How to Prepare

To fight wrinkles, you can use coconut oil as a stand-alone product or combine it with Medical Grade Vitamin A & E for best results.

  • Just before you go to bed each night, simply massage extra virgin organic coconut oil onto the affected area (wrinkled skin).
  • Apply Medical Grade Vitamin AE
  • Do this until the coconut formula combo gets absorbed completely.
  • Do not try to wash it off, leave overnight.
  • Be diligent in applying daily.
  • For faster results, make a habit of consuming 3 tablespoons of coconut every day to jumpstart beautiful skin from within.


2. Scars

Unfortunately, youth acne can often lead to acne scars.  Discoloration and uneven pigment on your face could be embarrassing and oftentime affect one's self confidence and self-esteem.

Coconut oil’s make-up (i.e., Lauric acid, vitamin E, Capric, Caprylic acid) is a great remedy for fading scars. Add on a Medical Grade Vitamin E Skincare Product and you'll find it will speed up the healing of skin abrasions and a host of other skin injuries to the skin. As an added bonus, coconut oil prevents the formation of more scars as its strong antioxidant presence  acts as a defensive barrier.

How to Prepare 

Scarring can be minimized with this routine and you get a soothing effect that’s beneficial in the area applied.

  • Heat the coconut oil so it liquefies.
  • Take warm oil into your palm.
  • Massage the area of the scar gently, at least once per day.
  • You may apply 2-4 times a day for faster healing.
  • Leave the oil on the affected areas to let your skin absorb as much of it as possible.

Which Coconut Oil Should I Choose?

Be aware, not all coconut oil is equal. Don't put coconut cooking oil on your face!

Here are quick and easy steps to identify the coconut oil superfood that your skin needs.

Basically, there are two kinds of coconut oil, one that comes from sun-dried coconuts and the other from fresh coconuts. Coconut oil extracted from sun-dried coconut and is derived by applying very high heat. Coconut Cooking Oil has many chemicals involved in the refining process and not suitable for skin care.

The other type of coconut oil comes from the freshest of coconuts. What’s notable is that high heat isn’t used in extracting the fruit’s oil. Thus, not only does the resulting oil taste and smell a lot like coconuts, it carries the most nutrients. Dubbed unrefined coconut oil, or organic virgin coconut oil (VCO), this is the coconut oil that you should go for, as it has the most coco nutrients preserved.

Make sure you check labels to be sure it is organic or virgin.

If you’re still not sure if using coconut oil is good for your skin, try applying some on a small skin wound. You’ll be surprised how much faster the wounds will heal with regular application. Then, when your comfortable start using on a "problem area" of your face and watch the improvement.

Luckily, coconut oil has a lot to offer in the anti-inflammatory and analgesic departments. This is the reason why it’s virtually a one-stop shop for many skin irregularities, including eczema, psoriasis, acne and much more.  Organic Coconut Oil has been become a staple beauty product and should definitely be added to your face care regiment.

Let's get right to the point.  It's Fiber.

For fast, lasting fat loss and lots more, dietary fiber reigns supreme.

Too bad we’re not getting nearly enough.

One study titled "Trends in dietary fiber intake in the United States, 1999-2008," published in the   Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics , found the average person gets   about 15 grams of fiber   a day, well below the 25-38 grams recommended adequate intake for adults.

Among its numerous benefits, fiber can help you lose weight. That's because it helps slow down stomach emptying so you feel fuller longer.

Studies show fiber also     suppresses your hunger hormone    ghrelin and   stabilizes blood sugar    and insulin levels. It fills you up faster for fewer calories.

Those are among the reasons I call fiber a magic bullet for fast, lasting fat loss. A recent study published in the   Annals of Internal Medicine   supports my theory.

Researchers asked 240 participants to either eat fewer calories and follow the American Heart Association's diet or simply get more dietary fiber.

One year later, the fiber folks lost an   average of 4.6 pounds  , whereas the reduced-calorie group lost an average of six pounds. Impressive, considering the fiber group made   no   other dietary modifications.

To get fast, lasting fat loss and fiber's other benefits, I want you to get 50 grams of fiber daily. Yes, 50.

Please don't do this all at once. Gradually increase your intake five grams a week until you've met that quota. I've got seven easy ways to easily increase fiber intake:

  1. Non-starchy veggies. Leafy and cruciferous greens are nutrient and fiber powerhouses. Whether steamed, sautéed, or raw in salads, veggies definitely fall into the "more is better" category.
  2. Berries. Every one of these low-sugar impact fruits are high in fiber, but raspberries reign supreme with   eight grams of fiber   per cup.
  3. Avocado. Along with heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and hard-to-get fat-soluble nutrients like vitamins K and E, one cup of avocado provides   an impressive 10 grams   – that’s 40 percent – of your day’s fiber intake. Plus it makes everything so much more delicious.
  4. Slow roasted or dehydrated almonds. Loaded with protein, healthy fats, and hard-to-get nutrients like magnesium, a quarter-cup of slow-roasted or dehydrated almonds provides   three grams of fiber  . Almond butter provides those same benefits. Smear a little bit on some celery for a decadent fiber wallop!
  5. Lentils. Most legumes are fiber-packed, but I especially love lentils because they’re so darn versatile and delicious. In his book   The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth  , Dr. Jonny Bowden notes one cup of lentils packs a whopping 16 grams, which officially makes them a fiber heavyweight.
  6. Freshly ground flaxseeds.Besides being an excellent source of the omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), flaxseed is rich in anti-cancer lignans, and two tablespoons provides   almost four grams of fiber  .
  7. Extra Fiber.  Even the most well intended, health-minded folks occasionally struggle to meet their 50-gram daily fiber quota. That’s why I never travel without   Extra Fiber  , a top-of-the-line powder that combines 12 different types of fiber to mimic what you get in high-fiber whole foods. Every serving contains an impressive four grams of fiber and mixes well into shakes, water, or any preferred beverage.

A  protein shake  becomes my favorite way to increase fiber intake, which provides you steady, sustained energy all morning. Adding avocado, frozen raspberries, raw kale (you won't taste it), and freshly ground flaxseed or E xtra Fiber   to my   Paleo  - or   plant-based   protein powder provides about 15 - 20 grams of fiber. Do one of these once or twice daily and you've almost hit your 50-gram quota.

OK everybody.  Let's head out to the supermarket.
