LASER Skin Tightening!

The latest Neck Skin Tightening Treatment, such as Pixel Radio Frequency, Laser Skin Tightening, and Laser at Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa in Phoenix, we are proud to offer the latest Stomach Skin Tightening Treatment, such as Pixel Radio Frequency, Laser Skin Tightening, and Laser Skin Resurfacing!

After laser skin tightening, results will be immediately visible, and the rejuvenating effects of increased collagen production will become markedly more noticeable in the months following treatment. Immediately after treatment, patients may notice that the affected skin is red and slightly warm, but this usually resolves itself within a few hours. Since treated skin is especially delicate, most laser skin tightening practitioners recommend that patients protect the treated area with sunscreen for at least two weeks following their treatment. Permanent negative side effects of laser skin tightening are very rare.

There is no doubt laser skin tightening will continue to become one of the most popular methods of getting firmer, younger, healthier looking skin.  It provides you with the same type of benefits as a surgery – namely tighter skin.  At the same time, it is minimally invasive and requires no recovery time.  This allows you to see the results immediately, while also watching your skin continually improve over the next several months or years.

Our skin begins to sag and fall largely due to the decline in collagen, one of the main proteins that give our skin that supple and resilient quality most associated with youth. It happen when our natural collagen supply declines, our cheeks, face and neck are soon to follow, that is where Laser Skin Tightening works by lifting and tighten falling skin, and the majority of them work by stimulating our body’s collagen supply.

There is no downtime necessary for laser skin tightening recovery; in fact, patients can return to work or play immediately following a laser skin tightening treatment session. The most common visible side effect of laser skin tightening is mild redness, and this can be safely hidden with a little make-up and should resolve itself within hours of treatment. Patients should not experience any pain during or following laser skin tightening; however, any discomfort can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications.

The Laser Skin Tightening conducting energy into the deeper dermal layers to tighten underlying tissues and produce a more dramatic stimulation of new collagen and elastin growth. This replaces older, damaged tissue with tauter, firmer, more elastic skin that is less likely to sag over time. Also targeting photo-damaged and aged skin, removing fine lines and other mild to moderate skin damage. In addition to making skin more supple, the plumping effects of collagen produced by the procedure helps improve pitted acne scars and minimizes superficial lines.

Typical laser skin tightening results are visible for up to two years, and many patients find that they can extend their optimal results with a few touch-up treatments. After roughly two years, another series of treatments may be necessary to promote the growth of new collagen, which will be reabsorbed into the body over time.

Laser skin tightening has been proven effective for tightening the skin on all areas of the body. Patients can enjoy a rejuvenated look when this treatment is applied to the face, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks. In fact, patients with minor to moderate skin laxity may opt for laser skin tightening treatment instead of more invasive procedures such as liposuction and even mini tummy tuck surgery, and experience noticeably firmer skin with no downtime and little discomfort.

Breast Skin Tightening – Butt Lift Treatment – Skin Tightening Thighs – Neck Skin Tightening – Stomach Skin Tightening – Tightening Skin Under Eyes-Phoenix-Scottsdale-Arizona At Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa in Phoenix, we are proud to offer the latest Tightening Skin Under Eyes Treatment, such as Pixel Radio Frequency, Laser Skin Tightening, and Laser Skin Resurfacing!

Now the youthful indiscretions be so easily eliminated!
What Can I Expect During Laser Tattoo Removal?
Depending on the size and color of your tattoo, the number of treatments will vary. Your tattoo may be removed in two to four visits, though many more sessions may be necessary. You should schedule a consultation, during which time a trained professional will evaluate your personal situation and advise you on the process.

Treatment with the laser varies from patient to patient depending on the age, size, and type of tattoo (amateur or professional). The color of the patient’s skin, as well as the depth to which the tattoo pigment extends, will also affect the removal technique.
In general, this is what will happen during an office visit for tattoo removal using the newer lasers:
Protective eye shields are placed on the patient.
The skin’s reaction to the laser is tested to determine the most effective energy for treatment.
The treatment itself consists of placing a hand piece against the surface of the skin and activating the laser light. As many patients describe it, each pulse feels like a grease splatter or the snapping of a rubber band against the skin.
Smaller tattoos require fewer pulses while larger ones require more. In either case, the tattoo requires several treatments and multiple visits. At each treatment, the tattoo should become progressively lighter.
Immediately following treatment, an ice pack is applied to soothe the treated area. The patient will then be asked to apply a topical antibiotic cream or ointment. A bandage or patch will be used to protect the site and it should likewise be covered with a sun block when out in the sun after the Laser Tattoo Removal treatment. Walk-in welcome 3313 E. Indian School Rd. 85018.

TESTIMONIALS:
* “:After four laser tattoo removal treatments, my tattoo is GONE! Big thank you to Suddenly Slimmer Spa, and Saharra. She is not only a fantastic and kind person, but she is very, very good at what she does. I saw a very pricey cosmetic dermatologist in Scottsdale, and her tattoo removal treatments were not at all effective (two years of treatments with minimal results). Once I began seeing Saharra, I saw a HUGE difference in the results. Anyway, Suddenly Slimmer Spa is phenomenal, Saharra is fantastic. Great results.”
Sarah C. – Scottsdale, AZ *results may vary

* “Have gone here several times now for removal of a horrible (and badly done) mistake from when I was 18, and I highly recommend checking it out if you are considering having a tattoo removed. Their prices are fair compared to other places, and it is definitely effective. The process is not fun but this place makes it a little easier. I have never had a problem getting an appointment and they are even open on Saturdays. It is a clean and comfortable office. Dannielli is very sweet and sincere woman, and is very honest with what to expect for your results.”

SCULPTRA – The Collagen Replace Filler!

Sculptra helps to replace the lost Collagen – One of the biggest factors that affects your appearance as you get older is the loss of collagen. As you’ve probably heard about collagen before and few people realize what an important role collagen plays in how your skin looks. Collagen is a chemical compound that makes your skin firmer and increases the elasticity of your skin with its ability to bounce back after being pulled. As you age, collagen production slows down, and this plays a crucial role in the development of wrinkles and sagging skin. One of the solutions that have been used to turn back the proverbial hands of time is dermal fillers, which are injected directly into the problem areas. One such dermal filler is Sculptra Aesthetic, but it’s a little different from most of the other dermal fillers out there. Sculptra procedures actually work to replace the lost collagen in your body. The Sculptra procedure is relatively simple, and its results can last for up to two years.

Sculptra is one of the longest lasting injectables for facial rejuvenation. It has an FDA approval of two years, but will probably last up to three years because of the new collagen that has formed. However, the face will continue to age and collagen will continue to break down. Most people have a series of treatments initially to achieve optimal results with maintenance touch ups every 1-2 years.
Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles. Sculptra Aesthetic works to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds, as it replaces lost collagen, which can help provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance.

Sculptra Aesthetic works to replace lost collagen in a series of treatments administered by a Sculptra Aesthetic trained physician. On average, three injection sessions are needed over a period of a few months. The number of injection sessions and the number of injections per session vary from person to person. Within the deep dermis, your skin’s structure is reinforced as Sculptra Aesthetic helps to replace lost collagen. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds* that has been depleted over time. Sculptra Aesthetic is different because it gradually and subtly corrects these facial wrinkles. This can provide a refined, more youthful looking appearance that can last more than two years. Safety and effectiveness of Sculptra Aesthetic have not been evaluated in areas other than nasolabial wrinkles and folds in clinical trials. **Individual results and treatment sessions may vary.

Where In The Face Is Sculptra Used?
Sculptra Aesthetic is used to correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds which are treated with the appropriate injection technique.
Sculptra Aesthetic is suitable for:
Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines
The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines) Chin wrinkles.

What Is Sculptra Made of:
Sculptra Aesthetic is a new type of facial injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid, which helps to replace lost collagen. It helps correct shallow to deep facial wrinkles, and folds, that appear with aging by replacing lost collagen. The main ingredient is a biocompatible, biodegradable synthetic material that has been used by physicians for decades.

How Sculptra Works:
Unlike many dermal fillers, Sculptra’s effects take a longer time to appear, because the aim behind the procedure is to stimulate the natural collagen production in the body. During the session, this dermal filler is injected into the specific sites that show wrinkles or skin depressions. After the injection, the chemical compounds present in Sculptra are slowly absorbed into the body and begin to stimulate collagen formation around the injection site, thus causing the lower skin layers to repair themselves. It’s important to remember that, unlike many other wrinkle fillers, the Sculptra Aesthetic product gradually improves the affected area. The entire process can actually take several weeks.

Who is the Best Candidate for Sculptra:
Sculptra is a relatively new product that does not have the benefit of decades of widespread use, as is the case with some of the other dermal fillers. There have been some clinical studies, but Sculptra has only been approved for uses in specific areas of the face. It is very important to keep in mind that as of the date of the writing of this article, Sculptra has not been approved for lip injections or for use around the eyes. This product is currently being used only to treat wrinkles in the nasolabial region of the face. That’s the part between your nose and your lips. Sculptra has also been used to address chin wrinkles. However, if you’ve been thinking about using Sculptra to get rid of those crow’s feet, you’re out of luck, for now.

The Sculptra Procedure:
During the procedure your doctor will use a water soluble pencil to outline a grid that is perpendicular and parallel to the nasolabial fold. This helps the doctor properly assess where the injections should go for maximum effect. Again, this procedure shows effects gradually, as the body begins to absorb the material and produce collagen, so proper targeting of the injections is essential.
Massage is a vital part of the process. No, you’re not going to get an actual spa massage while getting the treatment! Instead what this means is that the doctor will massage the injection sites after each series of three to four injections. This helps distribute the product more evenly underneath the skin to allow for better absorption into the deeper skin layers. An important two minute massage also takes place after the injection session, and is done with a facial moisturizer. Patients are advised to massage the area that was treated for five minutes as well after the procedure is complete. This should be done about five times each day for a period of five days after treatment.

After the Procedure:
When the Sculptra procedure is complete, there may be initial redness or swelling. It’s important to prevent the treatment area from being exposed heavily to UV lamps or the sun. So going to the beach or the tanning salon is out of the question.
Also, keep in mind that because of how Sculptra works, the wrinkles and facial depressions can actually reappear shortly after the procedure. This is because Sculptra Aesthetic fills wrinkles with small beads of PLLA, which is the substance that eventually leads to collagen production. As part of the process, the beads biodegrade into the body to stimulate collagen, but this will also cause the wrinkles to temporarily come back until the body has produced more collagen.

Experience:
Our physician is the #1 provider of Sculptra procedure in Phoenix and Scottsdale AZ! In business since 1988. Sculptra Aesthetic is a newer facial injectable treatment that stimulates new collagen formation gradually over weeks to months. Unlike a traditional facial filler, Sculptra Aesthetic improves volume and contour by stimulating the body’s own collagen. By using advanced injection techniques, Sculptra can lift, reshape the face, create volume and also improve the tone and texture of the skin (as in the liquid facelift). This makes it a versatile product for full facial rejuvenation. Since Sculptra Aesthetic requires special preparation and a very advanced injection technique, the best Sculptra doctors are those who have extensive experience injecting the product. Dr. Jeffers is a top Sculptra injector in Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona. Because Sculptra is not a facial filler, Dr. Jeffers injects in many different areas in the face for a very natural appearance. When used in this fashion, you will not get that puffy look that has become associated with too much facial filler.

LASER HAIR REMOVAL

LASER HAIR REMOVAL HOW and WHY IT WORKS!

Should I shave before the Laser Hair Removal treatment?
Shaving the day before or just prior to Laser Hair Removal treatment is recommended and you may shave again twenty-four hours after treatment unless your laser technician tells you otherwise.

Is Laser Hair Removal treatments safe?
Laser hair removal from Suddenly Slimmer Spa in Phoenix is the most popular aesthetic procedure performed annually. Hair removal is one of the aesthetic medical industry’s most well-known and researched uses of lasers and the Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ treatment has provided safe and effective hair reduction for thousands of patients worldwide. Because Pain-Free, Hair-Free Laser Hair Removal system utilizes our IN-MOTION™ and low-heat settings we’re able to provide a level of safety unlike any other laser hair removal procedure.

How many Laser Hair Removal treatments will I need?
Typically, 4 to 8 treatments is adequate amount of treatment to kill active hair follicles so it can no longer produce hair. However, after a one-on-one consultation, your provider may determine that based on the density of your hair, hair color and skin color, you may require additional treatment. Your provider will advise you. It’s not unusual to require a touch-up treatment two years after completing laser hair removal treatments.

Will my hair ever grow back?
Actively growing hairs that are treated by Laser Hair Removal should not grow back. Once a hair follicle is damaged it cannot grow hair. However, hair follicles that were not in the active growth phase will need to be treated. It’s also not unusual for patients to have a touch-up two years after initial treatment due to hormonal changes.

Why does it take more than one Laser Hair Removal treatment to destroy hair follicle so it no longer produce hair?
Hair growth occurs in 4 stages: Early Anagen (early hair growth), Anagen (active hair growth) Catagen (regression) Telogen (resting, not growing) Laser hair removal only affects the Anagen stage, (actively growing hair). Therefore, approximately twenty-five-percent of hair is removed with each treatment. Typically, after 4 to 8 treatments, the area should be free from hair.

Do I need to arrange time off from work for Laser Hair Removal treatments?
No. Suddenly Slimmer’s Laser Hair Removal system has no “down time” and requires no recovery time. You can have a Pain-Free, Hair-Free™ treatment and return to work, school or other normal activities immediately.

The principle of lasers is based on light absorption. In the same way that a black car will become hotter than a white car, because it is absorbing more of the sun’s rays, darker hair will absorb certain wavelengths more effectively than lighter (white, blonde, grey). This process is called photothermolysis. In Laser Hair Removal, the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) and transmitted down the shaft, disrupting the growth mechanism when it reaches the root. The light energy is transformed to heat energy and the follicle is heated to a critical temperature at which point it is cauterised. The laser disrupts hairs that are principally in the active growth (anagen) phase at the time of treatment. The laser is pulsed, or switched on, for a fraction of a second. The length of each pulse is just long enough for the follicle to be disrupted. The lasers each have a specially designed cooling system to help protect the skin and to promote procedural comfort.

What to Expect?

The length of a session may be a few minutes up to an hour or more, depending upon the size of the area being treated. A course of treatments are recommended for optimal results. An average course of treatment is usually 6 to 8 sessions; however this all depends upon a number of factors, including the hair’s ability to absorb the light. As, hair grows in three different phases, treatment tends to be more successful in the anagen phase of the cycle.

This is the active growth phase. The laser treatment itself can cause some minor discomfort. Most clients tolerate the procedure with minimal discomfort, but for those with a low pain threshold, a topical anaesthetic is always available. The appearance of the treated area immediately after a session does vary from one person to another. The after-effects are usually minor, and may include some redness. Most people are able to return immediately to normal activity.

Is the treatment permanent?

Many of us have experienced the frustration that comes with unwanted growth. While have solutions like waxing, plucking and shaving, they all have certain things in common: they’re messy, time consuming and a major hassle. Most of all, these methods are purely temporary. Fortunately, laser treatment provides a permanent solution for a range of areas. We can provide fantastic results for facial, full body and Brazilian options, obtaining permanent reductions in growth.

This is achieved through a series of sessions that target specific areas of growth and eliminate the follicles. The general principle is that between four and eight treatment sessions can eliminate 90% of growth permanently.

Clear Lift offers many advantages:
– Fast and Easy to use – Treatments in as little as 20 minutes Virtually
– Painless
– No Downtime Visible
– Improvement in skin appearance in as little as one treatment*

ClearLift Laser Treatment delivers a controlled dermal wound without harming the overlying epidermis so that all stages of healing and skin repair occur under the intact epidermis.
Because ClearLift heats deep beneath the skin (up to 3mm in depth) no numbing is required prior to treatment and all skin healing happens without damaging the outer layer of skin.

So how does it work?
It is a non-ablative fractional laser. It uses gentle heating to stimulate the surrounding tissue and creates tiny thermal zones called pixels, leaving healthy skin between each pixel. This allows for natural collagen stimulation and improved healing from the unaffected areas, leaving you without any downtime!
This procedure painlessly targets the deepest layer of the skin, completely bypassing the top layer so that healing, tightening and rejuvenation can occur from the bottom up. Since it bypasses the upper layers, there is no pain, no redness, no discomfort and no side effects, allowing you to get instant results without the suffering. It can also be used for sensitive areas such as the under eye area for dark circles and fine lines, and even for sagging and wrinkled necks and hands!

For long-lasting results, six sittings, done every three to four weeks are recommended. This allows full collagen stimulation to occur, giving your skin a permanent natural lift. After your sittings are completed, you can get a touch-up once a year as a daily maintenance regime.

Coolsculpting to remove fat without surgery!

CoolSculpting is becoming more popular on permanent fat cells removal and CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 body contouring procedure; besides it gives you the ability to return to work the same day as the treatment. The licensed professional on CoolSculpting Technology can create an individual plan to target problem areas and focus on forming a natural, contoured shape. The procedure relies on special applicators that look like paddles and have cooling panels. The applicators are applied to your body while you read or watch television in a medical office. Your fat cells are cooled and crystallized during the treatment, so your body can naturally eliminate them. Now, Dual-Sculpting where you can be treated at the same time DualSculpting: FREEZE YOUR FAT IN HALF THE TIME
We are proud to offer patient treatments with two CoolSculpting machines during the same time. Instead of treating the love handles in two hours, both sides of the love handles can now be treated in just one hour. The ability to perform two treatments simultaneously will decrease your treatment time, and it allows for a more flexible schedule. Getting rid of unwanted fat is now even easier, and it can occur in half the time! CoolSculpting with its continue benefits of cryolipolysis, it is becoming a popular alternative to liposuction and other invasive surgical procedures. CoolSculpting helps reduce fat pockets without anesthesia or other drugs. It is an FDA approved treatment and has helped patients get rid of annoying fat deposits.

COOLSCULPTING – The most effective fat freezing technique is giving patients an alternative option to liposuction and is growing in popularity. Vogue reports that CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, is the latest trend among people who want to melt away their fat with minimal effort. Now, new research supports the use of CoolSculpting to permanently remove unwanted fat.
A Clinical Research data shows that CoolSculpting can help with body contouring and has become one of the most common cosmetic procedures. This noninvasive treatment relies on cooling technology to target pockets of fat. Unlike liposuction, you do not need anesthesia or a long hospital stay. The entire procedure can usually be performed in one to three hours or less with the latest DualSculpting , but follow-up visits are encouraged, also the results can be permanent if one does not gain more weight that can compromise the removed fat areas by creating A New fat cells for the same area treated.

Research indicates that CoolSculpting is an effective treatment for stubborn fat in the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, back, double chin, arms and other areas of the body. You may feel numbness or tingling during the procedure, but some patients are able to sleep through it. The benefits of cryolipolysis are that there are no needles or surgical tools, so you do not need a long recovery time.

CoolSculpting relies on the lymphatic drainage system in your body to get rid of the crystallized fat cells. Although most patients see results in a few weeks, it may take several months for others. There have been no serious side effects reported with this procedure, but numbness, swelling and bruising can occur. In addition, it is important to note that the applicators are designed to target fat cells and leave surrounding tissue unharmed.

How does it work?
We are born with a certain amount of fat cells, and that number fluctuates until you hit puberty — after that point, it stays constant. Fat cells can expand due to things like a high-fat diet, caloric intake, and hormones, and this expansion causes weight gain. This procedure fast-fat-cells-busters uses extreme cold decrease the number of fat cells. The fat is then drained through the lymphatic system and eliminated in waste.

Can the fat cells come back?
Once fat cells are killed and flushed out of the body, they cannot grow back. But if you gain weight after the treatment, your remaining fat cells can increase in size. Say, you treat your thighs and if you later put on a few pounds, you’ll redistribute that fat in a more even pattern over your body as opposed to preferentially gaining it in your thighs.

How Safe is it?
There are no long term negative effects of CoolSculpting.  The reason it only damages fat cells is that fat cells will freeze at higher temperature than other tissues. The reason the other tissues such as skin, nerves and blood vessels are not frozen at these same temperatures are that they are water based. The device carefully controls the cooling process so that the temperatures achieved are such that the only the fat will freeze but are above the freezing point of other tissues inside the applicator. CoolSculpting gives a very natural looking reduction without issues of lumpiness nor hanging excess skin.
It is very safe and very effective way to remove that unwanted localized fat cells body areas.

Why Coolscupting Works in Removing Fat for Good!

CoolSculpting, which works through a process known as Cryoliposis, is a result of the advancements in technology and helps in safe and effective removal of fat cells from targeted area.

In fact, CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that involves controlled cooling to reduce unwanted fat cells that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise, without damaging the surrounding tissues.

The concept of extreme cold affecting fat cells was noticed by Harvard University scientists in the 1970s. They observed that a group of children who ate popsicles on a frequent basis developed dimples (fat loss) in their cheeks.

This finding was analysed over years by the scientists who studied the process of cryolipolysis that eventually led to the development of the CoolSculpting machine.

Procedure:

CoolSculpting involves the application of a proprietary gel on the targeted area using a control device to freeze and wipe out the fatty cells. The area to be treated is pinched between the two panels of the applicator. The temperature of that area gradually lowers down to an extent that causes the fat cells to crystallize and die.

Later, the dead cells are naturally eliminated from the body. Each session lasts for around an hour and results in approximately 20 percent fat reduction in the treated area.

Cost:

CoolSculpting is a relatively costly procedure as compared to Liposuction and other invasive treatments. The price of the treatment depends on the number of target areas and the number of treatments required. The procedure costs about 75% less than Liposuction.

 

Benefits:

Unlike liposuction and gastric bypass surgery, CoolSculpting is a totally non-invasive procedure and does not require any prolonged recovery time. This helps the patient return to his normal daily activities as soon as the procedure is finished.

The process is FDA-approved which means that it has passed various clinical tests and trials by the Food and Drug Administration. The procedure does not involve any medications and drugs thereby reducing the chances of any risk.

Unlike diet and exercise in which the fat cells reduce in size but remain in the body, CoolSculpting removes the dead fat cells permanently from the body.  Not only the procedure is quick but also quite effective. On an average, patients experience about 20 percent fat reduction in the treated areas within 2-3 weeks.

As the treatment destroys the dead cells permanently, the results last for quite a long time.

Naomi Watts Can’t Decide If She Wants Botox or Not: ‘Sometimes, I Think I Need the Help

Naomi Watts is getting candid about the pressure to look good in Hollywood.

naomi-watts-botox-scottsdale-az

The 47-year-old actress admits in a new interview with NewBeauty magazine that she has definitely considered Botox — and is, in fact, still undecided at times — though she hasn’t ever undergone the treatment.

“Personally, I feel for me it’s tough to do Botox — but it’s also tough not to!” she says. “Sometimes, I think I need the help. Whatever anyone else chooses is fine with me, no judgment.”

But Watts points out that Botox would definitely affect her acting career.

“Of course, I want to look the best I can, but I am playing characters that should match my age, and the women and the material that I am interested in are usually going through something,” she explains. “I have to be able to live in my face and tell the story of the character I’ve taken on. But… I’ll never say never.”

However, Watts is far from vain. The Allegiant star says that despite her glamorous red carpet appearances, she’s “not very good” at actually doing her own hair or makeup. She also admits to having some insecurities when it comes to inheriting her mother’s good looks.

“My mother was not very good at giving beauty tips, but she was — and still is — a striking beauty,” Watts says about her mom, former costume and set designer Myfanwy Edwards. “I was always very aware of her beauty, but I never felt as beautiful as her, or that I could ever be that beautiful.”
