Sail into the New Year Feeling Like Your Best Self
A busy holiday season may have filled your cup to overflowing in numerous ways. While you may be riding high on the good vibes of time with family and friends, you may also feel somewhat depleted. You might look it, as well, but you don't have to. Here, we discuss some simple ways that you can sail into the new year feeling like your best self.
PRP Skin Rejuvenation
You may have heard of PRP microneedling treatment and have some idea of its value as an anti-aging service. PRP, Platelet-rich plasma is the component of the blood that is high in platelets. Platelets are the cells that the body uses to help heal wounds. These cells are very healing and regenerative because they contain numerous beneficial growth factors and cytokines that help remodel tissue and support adequate collagen integrity. PRP can be applied to the skin after microneedling to enhance the healing effects of the creation of dozens of tiny channels in the skin. However, it can also be added to services like laser resurfacing and photorejuvenation.
The moment that research determined that a person's fat could be harvested and used for anti-aging benefits, the world of medicine was forever changed. Fat transfer is a two-step treatment process that we perform in the office using local anesthetic. The doctor harvests fat from an area such as the abdomen or thighs utilizing a conservative liposuction technique in which fat is captured directly into a sterile syringe. The fat is processed in a centrifuge to separate pure fat cells from blood and other fluid. These fat cells are then injected into areas of the face, such as the cheeks and temples, where volume is needed. As the treatment has become more familiar, more people are choosing fat transfer for long-lasting facial rejuvenation.
We're at one of those critical points in the year when people are looking more closely at how they want to look. A few extra pounds can be more difficult to shed than we think, which is why procedures like liposuction continually rank among the most popular. Maybe you're not ready to take the step toward liposuction but you're thinking of ways to maximize your healthy diet and exercise habits. CoolSculpting is a proven body contouring treatment that can set you on the right path. One of the benefits of CoolSculpting is that a brief series of convenient treatment sessions can enhance the time and effort you're already putting into sculpting your best body. The process works naturally over time, which can help you sustain the motivation you need in the gym, on the mat, or in the kitchen.
