Is Laser Resurfacing Right for You?

27 Mar

If you were a teenager in the 60s and 70s, chances are you spent way too much time in the sun slathering on baby oil to get just the right amount of deep tanning. Now we know how dangerous too much sun exposure and tanning salon time can be. It can put sun devotees on a path to a melanoma, a dangerous and sometimes fatal skin cancer.

Meet Me at the Wedding Salon Event March 10th

7 Mar

UPCOMING_EVENTSJoin me this Monday for a live demonstration of CoolSculpting at the upcoming Wedding Salon Bridal Show, March 10, 4 – 8 p.m., at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles.  CoolSculpting, an FDA approved non-surgical body contouring procedure, is the latest most effective slimming craze available to men and women. Fast, easy and effective, our clients from all over the world can FREEZE THE FAT just like THAT!

We’re excited to demonstrate this amazing technology to brides and grooms, because it is the only answer for stubborn fat deposits that can be resolved with just an hour long office visit. Our patients love CoolSculpting, a safe alternative to traditional liposuction.  We’ve received several Crystal Awards from ZELTIQ® Aesthetics, Inc., the company that launched CoolSculpting.  And we are the number one medical location in the world offering CoolSculpting.

Because the procedure requires no pills, no anesthesia and no down time, brides-to-be choose CoolSculpting to achieve their cosmetic goals. Those who undergo CoolSculpting enjoy a better fitting wedding dress or tuxedo, two to three months after their treatment.  The procedure is quick and easy; patients can read a book, play with their smart phones, or simply relax and listen to music during the one hour procedure.

This is a great procedure for brides and grooms who have small problem areas that they want gone before their big day. Come and see out demonstration at the Bridal Show and say hi to me.  I’ll also be giving beauty tips to attendees.  Here’s the link for more information.

See you there!  WGS
