The Effectiveness of Cosmetic Procedures Depends on Many Factors

The effectiveness of cosmetic procedures depends on many factors, including:

-- choice of the correct device for a given treatment

-- the training and skill of the person operating the device

-- the wavelength of the beam of energy that targets the tissue

-- the power settings used, the duration of each energy pulse, the amount of time between pulses, the number of pulses per treatment, and the number of treatments administered

-- the colour of the skin and/or hair of the person being treated

Here at PERFECT BODY LASER, we consider all of these factors and customize each treatment to each individual, ensuring the best results!

Buyer Beware: The Facts About Laser Hair Removal on Long Island, New York




Photo: Courtesy of Cynosure Elite MPX
If you're considering laser hair removal, consider this: It's not always a sure thing. "Hair removal lasers aren't like point-and-shoot cameras," says Stephen Probst, MD, clinical director at Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics in Bay Shore, NY. The results can be great, but if you're treated with the wrong laser or if it's on the wrong setting, you won't get the maximum hair reduction (there's no such thing as total removal). And you might end up with burns, hyperpigmentation, even increased hair growth (this phenomenon may be seen in darker-skinned women who are being treated on the face, but the risk can be reduced by using a longer-wavelength laser). Many state medical boards allow non-physicians to use lasers, and there's little oversight of the many aestheticians performing treatments. For the most reliable results, see a specialist with a good reputation (who will charge you an average of $500 for one treatment). 

BE EXTREMELY WEARY OF OUTFITS THAT USE GROUPON, LOCBOX, LIVINGSOCIAL AND OTHER ONLINE COUPON WEBSITES.  THEY TEND TO OFFER CHEAP SERVICE, CHEAP LASERS, INEXPERIENCED STAFF AND THEY DESPERATELY RELY ON GROUPON TO PAY THE BILLS.  

But wherever you go—a derm, a medispa, a gynecologist—be sure to ask these questions before "Where do I sign?" 



1. How many lasers are on the premises, and are they rented or owned? The more lasers a doctor or medispa has access to, the greater the likelihood you'll be treated with the safest, most effective one for your skin color and hair type. Be wary if machines are rented: Chances are the outfit is doing only a few procedures a month.

2. What lasers do you use for hair removal, which one is best for my skin, and why? The doctor or technician should be able to articulate why a particular laser is the best match for you (taking into account your skin tone, hair texture, and color) and any potential complications. Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics, a practice that owns more than 50 lasers, uses the alexandrite laser for hair removal most often; the diode and nd:Yag lasers are particularly effective as well. Intense pulsed light machines can also remove hair, but only on light skin, and the quality of those machines can vary. 

3. How many laser hair removal treatments have you performed? There's no standard "laser hair removal certification," so this is the best way to gauge a person's experience level. The answer should be at least a few hundred.

4. How many sessions will I need? The average number of visits necessary to see permanent hair reduction is four to six—but some people respond well in two sessions, and others need a dozen. That is why a "package deal" offered for laser hair removal is often more advantageous for the Client, especially when there is a guarantee, which is the case at Perfect Body Laser in Bay Shore, NY.

5. Can you treat me if I have a tan? If the answer is yes, GET OUT OF THERE, FAST!!! "The only way to treat tanned skin without causing burns is to use such low settings that treatment wouldn't be effective," says Stephen Probst, MD. 



Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics has performed over 300,000 laser hair removal treatments.  Perfect Body Laser is the only laser center in New York to offer a 5 YEAR GUARANTEE on all laser hair removal packages!

Perfect Body Laser Offers Exilis ELITE

Long Island's leading Laser Practice, Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics now offers an advanced radio frequency skin tightening procedure for facial and body contouring that delivers better results safer, faster and more comfortably.

Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics, a nationally recognized aesthetics practice located in Bay Shore, Long Island, NY, is pleased to announce that Exilis ELITE™ has been added to their already robust menu of facial and body contouring treatments.

The Exilis ELITE, by BTL Aesthetics, was introduced at the American Academy of Dermatology in March 2013 as the next generation Exilis device for reducing wrinkles and treating skin laxity. This comfortable, yet powerful treatment, is commonly performed on facial and body areas.

The Exilis has long had a well-defined position in Perfect Body Laser's body contouring center on Long Island, NY. With the Exilis ELITE re-engineered to meet client demand for better, faster and safer face and body rejuvenation in fewer treatment sessions they expect more clients will seek out this innovative treatment for that purpose, as well as an anti-aging tool.

“Patient feedback and satisfaction with our previous Exilis was outstanding. The new technological developments that come with the ELITE will only create a more satisfactory outcome,” says Director, Dr Stephen Probst.

Utilizing the dynamic monopolar radio frequency (RF) technology of the original Exilis system, Exilis ELITE enhances delivery of thermal energy by nearly twice as much, requiring only two to three treatments to obtain desired results. This higher level of efficacy is achieved by delivering maximum power and speed of high frequency radio waves using BTL’s proprietary Energy Flow Control™ and Impedance Intelligence™ breakthroughs. These features provide very precise and uniform distribution of heat to the entire treatment area. ELITE’s advanced cooling also allows for layering of RF energy at various depths.

The deposit and distribution of this heat into the skin stimulates new collagen formation as well as strengthening and tightening of the connective tissue bands that support the skins structure. The visual results to patients include tightening of lax skin, smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles and in some cases a lifting of the skin in the areas treated.

New York Board Certified, Dr. Stephen Probst commends the team at Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics, for offering a large array of cosmetic services including; facial rejuvenation, hair removal, tattoo removal, wrinkle reducers, laser treatments, body contouring, fat reduction, and medical grade skin care services and products. The staff at Perfect Body Laser pride themselves with providing clients with the utmost professional and personalized care. They strive to show their customers how they can look their best through affordable cosmetic enhancement and skin rejuvenation.

Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics Offers VelaShape III

New VelaShape® III Platform receives FDA Clearance for Abdominal Circumferential Reduction and “2013, Best in Anti-Aging” Trophy. Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics in Bay Shore, NY becomes ONLY Provider in NY to offer the technology!

The VelaShape III platform is set to be a body shaping powerhouse. "In clinical trials we found that we can achieve a quicker temperature end point in a matter of minutes with VelaShape III as opposed to the prolonged time required by the previous device," said Lori Brightman, M.D., board certified Dermatologist at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York and one of the lead investigators for both the original and the new VelaShape III system. "By reaching temperature endpoint quicker, practitioners can use the valuable time to maintain the necessary temperature to effectively complete the treatment in a much shorter session."

Dr. Stephen Probst, with Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics summed it up by explaining; “Other area Providers passed it up due to its seemingly expensive price-point, but we just had to have it!”  “We believe that Client satisfaction comes first so Perfect Body Laser customer reviews will remain excellent.  Velashape III rises to our standard of excellence and will be a great addition to our ever-growing fleet of New, FDA Approved Treatment modalities.”

Painless and fast-acting, VelaShape III is proven to be safe and effective in significant waist circumference reduction - a common problem area that can be resistant to exercise and dieting which add to its other well established indications including treatment of cellulite and thigh circumferential reduction.

According to a survey of over 1,000 American women commissioned by Syneron Medical, seven in ten (70 percent) admit they are most concerned about developing a tummy bulge now and in the future (66 percent).[4] The launch of the new Velashape III platform meets the growing demand for affordable, practical and comfortable non-invasive body shaping techniques.

Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron, commented, "We designed a sophisticated body shaping platform that delivers visible outcomes in a single or small number of treatments, fits the doctor's business needs and leads the body shaping category to the next level. Together with our physician partners and Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics, our customers now have a clinically proven solution that addresses what consumers are telling us they want."

The Science Behind VelaShape Technology

VelaShape III Mechanism of Action

Powered by elōs technology, VelaShape III combines IR (infrared), bi-polar RF (radiofrequency) and vacuum to precisely heat the tissue up to 3mm and 15mm depth respectively.
 The combination of IR and vacuum coupled RF technologies causes deep heating of the fat cells (adipocytes), their surrounding connective fibrous septae and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. Efficient heating of the adipocytes is achieved by higher output of the RF. The optimal design of the electrodes and the concurrent application of vacuum allows for deeper and faster heat penetration. In turn, this promotes an increase in circulation, lymphatic drainage, cellular metabolism and collagen depositing. Furthermore, it stimulates fibroblast activity and remodels the extracellular matrix.
 RESULT: A localized reduction in skin laxity, volume and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

Laser Hair Removal

If you're not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering.

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Lasers are useful for removing unwanted hair from the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line, and other areas.

Benefits of laser hair removal include:

Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

Predictability. Ninety percent of patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions.

How to Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is more than just ''zapping'' unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting  laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure.

If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That's because the laser targets the hairs' roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.

You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.

What to Expect During Laser Hair Removal

Just before the procedure, your hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.

Depending on the laser or light source used, you and the technician will need to wear appropriate eye protection. It will also be necessary to protect the outer layers of your skin with a cold gel or special cooling device. This will help the laser light penetrate the skin.

Next, the technician will give a pulse of light to the treatment area and watch the area for several minutes to make sure the best settings were used and to check for bad reactions.

When the procedure is completed, you may be given ice packs, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, or cold water to ease any discomfort. You may schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later. You'll get treatments until hair stops growing.

Why Looking Good Helps You Feel Better?

The first impression is the best impression and the impact of your look contributes to the major part here. Have you ever wondered why you feel so good when you are done with your hair and nail? Did you ever notice the radiating confidence and positive energy when you are in your favourite dress and shoe?

The fact is that looking good helps you feel better. This is the ultimate reason why people spend a lot of money and time for costly cosmetics and complex cosmetic surgeries. Looking good depends on your overall health, personality and the way how you present yourself.

Looking good helps you feel better by increasing the self-esteem and self-assurance. Looking good will always give you an additional benefit of adding ‘a little more' in your life. Here are some interesting points, that will explain why looking good helps you feel better.

More confident:The way you look reflects directly on your attitude. Your favorite look is all about your personal choice. But, whatever it is, looking good helps you feel better, because it is the best idea to boost up your confidence.

More talkative: Looking good will increase your self-esteem and will take away your introvert nature. It will make you confident to face a crowd. The feeling that you can grab the attention of people around you will help you become more talkative.

More appealing: Your fashion sense, style rules, and make up choice matters when it comes to an appealing look. Looking good improves your overall personality and this is enough to grab the attention of others.

More successful: Looking good will make you a vibrant and energetic human being. This will help you achieve your goals with self-reliance. In this highly aggressive world, the only way to be noticed and remembered is to really stand out.

More beautiful: If you want to experience a positive change in your life, try to look better. This refreshing change itself will give you an instantaneous change in the way you feel. Wear a confident smile on your face and look beautiful.

More influential: Being able to make a long lasting impression is the one of the important prerequisites of becoming influential. A solid impression about yourself will definitely make you powerful in your attitude, approach, and thoughts.

More appreciated: Everybody loves being appreciated for their appearance. This will make you confident to present yourself before a crowd. When you improve your appearance, people will begin to pay attention to you, listen to you and will seek your company.

Remember that looking good will not be of any use if you don't have an impressive personality. So, be truthful towards your attitude and design your looks according to it.

New Laser Hair Removal Technology Reduces Side Effects and Significantly Enhances Results

Laser hair removal popularity has increased to where it is now the third most sought after non-surgical treatment. New technologies are revolutionizing the industry by reducing side effects and improving results across various skin types.

In the last two years, laser hair removal popularity has increased so tremendously that it has become the third most sought after non-surgical treatment. While the market and demand for the treatment have increased, the quality of laser hair removal treatments in many cases has not caught up with the times. New technology such as the Elite MPX by Cynosure is revolutionizing the industry by reducing side effects and improving results across various skin types.

Patrick Vincent, Spa Director of Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics in Bay Shore, Long Island, NY, points out that "most laser treatment centers are not investing in up-to-date technology and produce lesser efficacy with higher risks of side-effects. Clients blinded by online deals (Groupon etc.) are not taking their time to research the best treatment options that are currently available with the latest advances in laser hair removal technology".

Patrick together with most Spa Directors and doctors in the field are thrilled with the increased demand for laser hair removal. However, he is also alarmed with the high number of online negative reviews from clients that are experiencing poor results with cases of undesirable side effects ranging from burns, scars and pigmentation. Many providers are offering laser hair removal treatments using older technology that does not produce results that are promised in advertising and marketing efforts and directed toward new clients. Some of these treatments are not safe for all skin types. Laser hair removal providers of offering clients treatments performed with the newest laser technology and knowledge of all available types of lasers used for laser hair removal is important and should be a priority for those seeking treatment.

Patrick can't seem to stress enough that "providers should not and cannot expect clients to come with full knowledge of laser hair removal procedures. They should not be left with limited information about the procedure before they make their final decision". Today, this is more important than ever, due in most part to online deals that are making laser hair removal treatment more affordable than ever with more and more clients willing to give this procedure a try without taking any time to research the technology used at their chosen clinic and the potential side-effects. Medical spas and clinics providing laser treatments who educate their customers and are dedicated to constant research, clinical trials, and new laser technology greatly reduce chances of errors resulting in higher levels of client satisfaction.

The Elite MPX by Cynosure, the laser technology of choice at Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics in Bay Shore, Long Island, NY, is representative of a new generation of cosmetic lasers that give the provider an ability to fire multiple laser wavelengths at the same time. "We have chosen Elite (MPX) laser hair removal for its revolutionary capabilities that are now becoming even more useful due in part to large numbers of darker skin clients who are searching for providers that can offer them a laser hair removal treatment that safe and effective."

Ethnic skin tones and darker-skinned individuals require laser light with long wavelengths and pulse widths, preferably with the 1064 Nd: YAG laser. As a comparison, shorter wavelength lasers such as the 755 Alexandrite laser are effective only on some lighter skin types. This type of laser is so well absorbed into melanin that it can lead to epidermal damage on darker skin types and can cause hyperpigmentation, a darkening of the skin, or hypopigmentation, a dramatic lightening of the skin. The Elite laser hair removal system at Perfect Body Laser however combines both of these laser wavelengths and can be used separately or combined for truly customized treatment. Furthermore, the Nd: YAG 1064nm laser is able to travel deep underneath the skin in order to reach melanin present in the hair follicle without harming epidermal pigment. This is the most optimal laser for ethnic skin tones.

Laser hair removal is not a "one-size-fits-all" kind of a treatment and not all lasers are created equally. Laser hair removal can produce the desired 70% to 90% permanent hair reduction with virtually no side-effects only when performed with the correct laser wavelengths and with settings adjusted for customized treatment on each type of skin. "Our clients are not all the same. Neither is their skin or hair. Why would we offer them a treatment that is exactly the same as everyone else's? The newest science and technology advances are not allowing us to stay in the past. Nor are Long Islanders, who demand and expect nothing but the best."

U.S. Army Set to Ban Tattoos Below the Elbow or Knees

Existing ink jobs could be grandfathered in.

The U.S. military and tattoos have an entangled history. The rise of the tattoo in popular culture started with floods of inked veterans—especially from World War II—returning home with them. The first tattoo parlor in New York City, established in 1846, served to mark up Civil War soldiers.

It is that strong history that's probably the reason why a blog post on the Army's website declared in 2009, "Today, it seems, you couldn't throw a rock into an Army formation without hitting a Soldier with at least one tattoo."

So it might be strange for the Army to put forth a new rule banning them on commonly tattooed portions of the body.

At the Stars and Stripes, Josh Smith (a former National Journal reporter) reports that Secretary of the Army John McHugh has approved, but not yet signed, a change to the Army's appearance regulations that would ban tattoos from the forearm, below the knee, or above the neckline. The Army will also require the removal of offensive tattoos, Smith reports,
Current soldiers may be grandfathered in, but all soldiers will still be barred from having any tattoos that are racist, sexist, or extremist.

Once the rules are implemented, soldiers will sit down with their unit leaders and "self identify" each tattoo. Soldiers will be required to pay for the removal of any tattoo that violates the policy, [Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond Chandler] said.
Forcing the removal of offensive tattoos is a step up in severity from current regulations. Currently, "commanders may not order the removal of a tattoo or brand. However, the commander must counsel soldiers, and afford them the opportunity to seek medical advice about removal or alteration of the tattoo or brand." If the soldier does respond to the counsel, the commander is to make sure "the soldier understands the policy."

For reference, here's what the Army considers offensive in tattoos.
(2) Tattoos or brands that are extremist, indecent, sexist, or racist are prohibited, regardless of location on the body, as they are prejudicial to good order and discipline within units.

(a) Extremist tattoos or brands are those affiliated with, depicting, or symbolizing extremist philosophies, organizations, or activities. Extremist philosophies, organizations, and activities are those which advocate racial, gender, or ethnic hatred or intolerance; advocate, create, or engage in illegal discrimination based on race, color, gender, ethnicity, religion, or national origin; or advocate violence or other unlawful means of depriving individual rights under the U.S. Constitution, federal, or state law (see para 4–12, AR 600–20).

(b) Indecent tattoos or brands are those that are grossly offensive to modesty, decency, or propriety; shock the moral sense because of their vulgar, filthy, or disgusting nature or tendency to incite lustful thought; or tend reasonably to corrupt morals or incite libidinous thoughts.

(c) Sexist tattoos or brands are those that advocate a philosophy that degrades or demeans a person based on gender, but that may not meet the same definition of "indecent."

(d) Racist tattoos or brands are those that advocate a philosophy that degrades or demeans a person based on race, ethnicity, or national origin.

Tips For Taking Care of Your Face

Taking care of the skin on your face is one thing you should start doing as soon as you are able to. Listed below are some simple things that you should do on a daily basis to care for your skin. These steps may help reduce acne as well as lessen the side-effects of acne such as dry skin and acne scars.
  • Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and a mild soap made for people with acne. Gently massage your face with circular motions. Don't scrub. Overwashing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated. After cleansing, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends applying an over-the-counter (no prescription needed) lotion containing benzoyl peroxide. This will decrease oil and bacteria.
  • Don't pop pimples. Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring.
  • Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.
  • Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. When buying makeup, make sure you choose brands that say "noncomedogenic" or "nonacnegenic" on the label. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it.
  • Protect your skin from the sun. It may seem like a tan masks acne, but it's only temporary. A tan may worsen your acne, not improve it. Tanning also causes damage to skin that will eventually lead to wrinkles and increase your risk of skin cancer.
  • One other thing which can help is to make sure that you get enough sleep and make an effort to remove the stress in your life. Zits often come out once your body is stressed, by getting adequate sleep you are able to help avoid this.

The Isolaz Difference

Acne Hasn’t Changed, But How We Treat it Has


Through technological innovation, Isolaz therapy can effectively treat acne without lifestyle changes, oral prescriptions or a regimen of skincare products. Treatment takes place in a doctor’s office and is comfortable and reliable, giving you quick and long-lasting acne clearance. That’s the Isolaz difference.


Clinically Proven Acne Clearance


Clinical studies by leading dermatologists have proven the effectiveness of Isolaz to treat acne.


  Immediate results within 24–48 hours, including reduced redness, clearing of skin discoloration and immediate drying/ flattening of the blemish.


  Significant decrease in number of acne lesions (spots, pimples, pustules) and a decrease in the amount of oil production.

Successful on All Skin Types


Isolaz treatment targets deep into the pores and is FDA cleared for use on all skin types (light or dark). It is safe, reliable and effective as a standalone acne therapy or as a complementary treatment to other acne regimens (please consult your Isolaz treatment provider). Isolaz can even jump-start a topical treatment regimen by helping your skin absorb skincare products better.


Successful on Non-Responders to Other Acne Treatments


Isolaz treatment has been proven to reduce lesions by over 75% within 2 months for patients who have not responded to antibiotics, topical products or lasers.


Fast Treatments


Isolaz treatments often take only 15 to 30 minutes! You can jump back into your life immediately after treatment with little to no downtime.


Comfortable


In a published clinical study, 100% of patients noted Isolaz treatments were painless.

Tattoo Removal on Long Island, NY

The popularity of skin tattooing skyrocketed among the Gen-X crowd during the 1990s, leaving an entire generation decorated with ink. Yesterday’s punk rockers and culture warriors are now today’s office professionals. The result is that the amount of tattoo removal procedures performed each year is projected to grow tremendously. A whopping 25% of adults under 50 are tattooed indicating that a vast market for tattoo removal services exists. Each procedure takes about 5 minutes to complete, and charges vary based on tattoo size, complexity, etc. A treatment package ranges from 6-12 procedures on average, spaced out 4-6 weeks, is usually required to effectively eliminate all traces of the tattoo from the patient’s skin. Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics in Bay Shore, NY specializes in tattoo removal.
The Cynosure Revlite SI tattoo removal laser at Perfect Body Laser is programmed to use precisely the right laser wavelengths to destroy the difficult-to-remove colored ink from within the epidermis without damaging the surrounding tissue. Unlike other tattoo removal lasers, the practitioner using the Cynosure Revlite SI is able to make adjustments to target different colors.

Perfect Body Laser Offers Cavi-Lipo and Exilis Combined Treatment

With the addition of Cavi-Lipo and Exilis combined, Perfect Body Laser & Aesthetics is proud to be the laser treatment center with the most extensive variety of lasers in New York and the US. Cavi-Lipo and Exilis Laser combination provides clients with a less invasive technique than conventional liposuction methods for fat reduction and body toning.

Cavi-Lipo and Exilis Lasers provides a less invasive and more advanced technology than conventional liposuction methods for fat reduction and body toning. As the industry's only laser lipolysis system designed to destroy fat cells and coagulate tissue for tighter skin, non-invasively, Cavi-Lipo and Exilis is ideal for treating localized fat deposits on the face and body.



In addition, Cavi-Lipo and Exilis laser lipolysis systems can easily treat challenging areas -- such as regions of high vascularity and flaccidity.

Here’s how Cavi-Lipo and Exilis combined works:

The lipolysis system is a highly efficacious solution for destroying and permanently eliminating fat cells:

 - The combination of technologies allows fat cells to be destroyed immediately and prompts the body’s natural collagen growth, which tightens the skin -- resulting in no bleeding, swelling or bruising like conventional liposuction, leaving zero healing and recovery.

 - The Cavi-Lipo and Exilis combination at Perfect Body Laser can supplement or augment traditional methods of cellulite treatment.

 - There are no needles, no cutting and no downtime associated with these treatments.  They are completely non-invasive.

New Procedure at Perfect Body Laser Gets Rid of 'Turkey Neck' Without Surgery

Exilis is a new procedure at Perfect Body Laser aimed at getting rid of 'turkey neck' without surgery!


Flabby, saggy skin under your neck is one of the signs of aging. But now new treatments available at Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics can solve the problem without surgery, with Exilis.

Lynda West did a double take when it looked like her youthful face was headed south.

"I had seen some pictures of me and I was mortified to see this giant turkey neck, and I just thought it made me look really old."

But West was reluctant to schedule a surgical tuck for her jaw and neck. "You're changing the way you look, for better or worse."

Dr. Probst said there are non-evasive options. One of the NEW technologies available at Perfect Body Laser is Exilis. It focuses radio frequency energy right on the area. "If you start doing facelifts when you're in your 40s, you're pretty much guaranteeing that you will be doing them well into your 50s and 60s."

But Probst said one solution is heat. "We can actually heat the skin to tighten it and we can heat the fat to make the fat cells leaky."

Exilis has focused the heating so that the Radio Frequency also generates collagen responses, which tighten loose, wrinkled skin.

"In heated or maybe slightly altered in some way and so it needs to be replaced," said Probst.

And while heat is involved it's usually not uncomfortable.

"Clients of Perfect Body Laser describe this as a warm massage most people tend to want to just close their eyes and sit back and relax," Probst said

Most people need anywhere from one to 3 treatments depending on the desired result and severity of the affected area.
Probst said that a few treatments result in tightening that lasts years. "She may need to come back maybe once every few years for maintenance, but she is excited to do it!"

Dr Stephen Probst is a Board Certified Neuroanesthesiologist, Medical Consultant with Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics.

Ulthera (Ultherapy) in NY - Neck and Face Lift Without Surgery

Ulthera in New York is the latest cosmetic procedure to help you look years younger without the need for surgery. This procedure is non-invasive and utilizes focused ultrasound energy to help tighten sagging skin in the face and neck.

Ulthera, also known as Ultherapy, is the latest procedure in the anti-aging and cosmetic armamentarium.
Prior to Ulthera in NY, skin tightening procedures utilized either light based or radio frequency sources to heat the skin resulting in skin tightening. There are two main differences between Ulthera (Ultherapy) and other devices such as Titan, Refirme, Thermage CPT, and Alma Accent. These devices typically work from top down, meaning they deliver heat to the skin starting from the top layer to the bottom layer of skin. However the energy often times does not penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, such as the fascia which covers the muscles. Often times, results are disappointing although some people do experience visible tightening. Second, multiple treatments are often necessary to obtain those results. Ulthera works on the deeper layers by utilizing ultrasound energy which is able to penetrate the deeper layers to effect skin tightening. Also, most clients will see a visible difference after 1 treatment. Visit www.PerfectBodyLaser.com for more information on the Ulthera procedure in NY as well as to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Ultherapy in NY can be used on the face and neck to treat sagging skin. It can be utilized to lift the brow, mid face and lower face and the neck region as well. Further research is currently underway and will likely demonstrate Ultherapy to be effective on other parts of the body as well such s the arms, knees, and abdomen. In addition, it may also be effective in reducing excessive sweating in the underarm region.

Ultherapy in NY can be performed in as little as 45 minutes. Everyone is a candidate including those with ethnic skin as Ulthera utilizes sound energy as opposed to light energy. Most people will experience tolerable discomfort although some people have found the treatment to be painful. Pain tolerance is individual and varies from person to person.

Following the treatment, some clients notice immediate tightening. There is little to no downtime associated with the procedures at Perfect Body Laser in New York. Some clients may experience mild redness and swelling following the procedure as well as a soreness which can last for several weeks. Optimal results can take 3 to 6 months following the procedure and improvement can continue for up to one year. The effect of the treatment is contraction of the skin as well as production of collagen. A second treatment may be performed in 3 to 6 months if additional tightening is desired. Ultherapy has a satisfaction rating of about 80% which is significant for a non-invasive device for skin tightening. It is important to have pictures taken as you may not realize the gradual improvement in skin tightening.

Ulthera in NY is the latest anti-aging device to produce skin tightening and a non-surgical face and neck lift. It is important to realize that Ulthera is not meant to replace surgery. The ideal client is someone who has mild to moderate sagging. Those with significant skin laxity will require surgery and therefore it is important to discuss you expectations with your Ultherapy doctor. As technology for cosmetic procedures get better and more advanced, people have options other than surgery to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance.

At Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics in Bay Shore, NY we are proud to offer the best in skin tightening procedures. Call 631-328-1100 to schedule a complimentary consultation.
