One of the hottest trends in skincare is sweeping through the nation and we are kind of crazy these days for it! From celebrities to top plastic surgeons, people are making this treatment a staple in their arsenal of treatments for rejuvenating the face.

Saddle Bags

Saddle Bags

Goodbye Saddle Bags. Hello Thigh Gap.

Get rid of saddlebags and gain a little thigh gap.

First of all, let me say that I am well aware of the impact that photoshop has played on our body image. Almost every picture in magazines are models who are 6 feet tall, lanky and 110 pounds. Based on their height and weight they probably will have thin legs with thigh gap.

But most women are not that height and weight. Let’s be real, most of us have thighs that rub together. Many of us do suffer with saddle bags. It can make finding a pair of jeans down right impossible.
 
Thankfully, Coolsculpting can reshape your legs in a day. The Coolsculpting procedure, which we love, is a great nonsurgical way to reduce saddlebags and inner thigh fat. Your pants can fit better!

So here’s the deal: Coolsculpting targets unwanted fat. It is not a treatment for obesity and is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle which include exercise. It is not for visceral fat, which can be a marker for serious health issues. If you exercise, eat right and still can’t get rid of the saddle bags, Coolsculpting is for you. It will reduce the area you just can’t seem to get rid of, no matter how many leg lifts, squats or lunges you do! Coolsculpting is just that: sculpting. It is remarkable for inner and outer thighs. After the procedure, you can expect a 20-25% reduction of fat in the treated area. You will begin to see and feel results in as little as 3 weeks.  Your legs will be looking great in time for summer. Good bye thunder thighs, hello sexy legs!

Photofacials

Photofacials

Yes, we all want to have youthful beautiful clear complexion. We want a round face with bright skin. Regular Photofacials can give you the skin you want. Here is a few, easy to understand reasons why they are so fantastic and absolutely necessary:

Hormonal Skin

Hormonal Skin

We often use it to describe our bad skin during certain times in our cycle. We use the word hormonal to describe aggressive or erratic behavior. But hormones are a very natural normal part of our incredible intricate wondrous human body. When our hormones are out of whack or changing we feel it and we see the change in our skin.

Hand Rejuvenation

Hand Rejuvenation

We are so used to caring for our face. We use a gentle cleanser, we use Vitamin C and sunscreen religiously. We use hats and avoid the sun during peak hours.

Stretch Marks

Stretch Marks

Many of us have them. We can acquire them from child rearing, losing weight or puberty. Whatever the cause, they can be hard, but not impossible to get rid of.  Stretch Marks occur when the skin stretches so rapidly that the underlying dermis is torn apart. There can be pink, reddish, purple or white depressions left.

Tattoo Removal

Tattoo Removal

No need to suffer with a mistake, bad decision, poor workmanship or depression because of your tattoo.  You can have a fresh start.  At Medical Aesthetics of the Hudson Valley, we can help you become ink free or prepare for a cover up. We can remove all or part of a tattoo.

Filler

Filler

Dermal Fillers are a great way to soften some of the signs of aging and enhance facial features. When used judiciously, they will give a beautiful, natural, subtle result.  We absolutely LOVE fillers and most of our clients do as well.

Double Chin

Finally, there are so many excellent options to get rid of the double chin. In the last couple of years there have been some very exciting developments for non-invasive treatments of the double chin; notably, Coolsculpting and Kybella. Both of these procedures are highly effective with notable improvement in the submental area in a short amount of time.

Vampire Facial

Vampire Facial

At one time, anything to do with vampires was a bit suspect, a tad scary. But in recent years, popular culture seems to have embraced this trend - witness the popularity of  “The Vampire Diaries” the “Twilight” series and “True Blood.” Now, there’s even a type of “facelift” whose benefits seem as mystical and out-of-this world. The good news is: No blood is spilled!

Summer Skin

Summer Skin

The summer season means more time outdoors¾wearing lighter, comfier, skin-baring clothes. Is your skin as ready for warm weather as you are? It’s not just your complexion that requires special care; arms, legs and other areas normally covered need protection from heat, dryness and especially the sun. 

Microneedling

Microneedling

If you haven’t heard of micro-needling¾and you do hear it entails sticking 1000 needles into you face you might think, “Yikes - no way!” But when you find out this painless office procedure can make you look younger, the natural reaction is, “Tell me more!” 

Voluma

Voluma

Think of some of legendary beauties…Angelina Jolie, Kerry Washington, Sophia Loren, the unforgettable Audrey Hepburn. Different women from different eras, yet each is noteworthy for having chiseled cheekbones that give her face an enviable shape and symmetry.

Dermal Fillers

Botox

When it comes to cosmetic injectables, the choices have never been better, the results never more effective. But with so many options, you may think you need a chemistry degree to figure out whether to select Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, or what! 

Teen Acne

Teen Acne

Most teenagers go through it: Those frustrating breakouts that can mar an otherwise dewy youthful complexion. Whether you have blackheads or whiteheads, nodules or cysts, acne is something you can definitely do without!  

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning

If you’re not yet familiar with the term Dermaplaning, it may sound like some kind of gardening for the skin! Not quite, but it’s a procedure that helps “cultivate” your complexion’s deeper beauty for sure. 

New Year

New Year

New Year. New You. (Again)

It happens every year. Resolutions. We try to take note and do better. But we all know, it’s hard, really hard.  At least we “try.”  We feel bad when we fail. So instead of setting yourself up for a fail this year, try to set yourself up for a win!  Focus on the positive. Work on things you know you can improve. Stop the things that are most harmful and sabotage us, because you’ll get the highest reward. I know, I know, it’s hard. But if you can stop 2 things, you can really change your skin (and your health).
 
In the skincare business one of the most harmful things we see is smoking. If you want to have better skin, you have to stop smoking. Never mind the other health implications, stop because you will look better. Your skin will return to a healthy color and less sallow after you stop the chronic exposure to the free radicals. We have lots of great in office treatments like laser resurfacing with 1540 or Thermage to combat the wrinkles left.
 
Another easy thing to do if you want better skin for 2016 is to stop tanning. The sun wreaks havoc on your skin. The leathery, deflated spotty remains of sun damage can be minimized with in office treatments like fillers, lasers and retinoids, but why try to fix damage you can easily avoid.

Use sunscreen every day. It will do wonders for your skin.

So for the best looking skin you can have, stop smoking and stop tanning.
