Winter Skin: How To Get a Holiday Glow

4. Non-Invasive Fat Removal for the Body

Benefits:

  • Sculpsure, Coolsculpting, Vanquish are all treatments for non-invasive destruction of fat cells and are perfect for removal of localized areas of stubborn fat.

Dr. Reszko’s Tip: Fat-targeting devices are not always immediate, so plan accordingly. It takes a full month for the destroyed fat cells to be removed from the treatment area.

 

5. Non-Invasive Fat Removal for Area Beneath Chin

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable proven to permanently reduce the fat pocket underneath the chin by dissolving and destroying fat cells. Downtime is relatively low with up to a week of swelling and numbness of the treated area.

Coolmini, a new device from the makers of Coolsculpting, allows for permanent fat reduction by cooling and breaking down deposits of fat.

Dr. Reszko’s Tip: Both Kybella and Coolmini require two treatments spaced a month apart for most optimal results.

 

6. Facial

Treat yourself to a medical grade facial with microcurrent and LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights. Microcurrent is proven technology that drains excess tissue swelling/fluid, tightens the muscles and the skin. Low energy LED light therapy stimulates the body’s natural ability to regenerate by increasing cellular metabolism and lymphatic drainage that result in healthy skin. LED stimulates collagen and elastin production, leading to a fresher complexion.

 

7. Growth Factor Rich Moisturizer

Winter’s cold temperatures and strong winds, combined with the lack of humidity and dry indoor heating strips the skin of its natural moisture, leaving it dry, dull and more prone to wrinkling.

To ensure that your skin is holiday-ready consider rich moisturizers with peptides and growth factor, which are biologically active agents that have a powerful effect on your skin. They stimulate collagen synthesis and deliver an overall skin revitalization from softening wrinkles and fine lines to diminishing the appearance of scars.

Dr. Reszko’s Tip: Always look for multi-functional products that not only serve as excellent moisturizers but may also have other ingredients, like peptides, vitamins and antioxidants.

    Dr. Reszko,
    Your model’s lips look very pretty. What kind of filler did you inject? I had voluma injected into my lips and that injection resulted in hard nodules. What fillers should i have injected to prevent the nodules from forming? Are nodules more likely to happen with certain types of fillers?
    Many thanks in advance.

      Thank you for the kind comment.
      It was juvederm. I like the fillers that are not highly cross linked ie. plain juvederm or restylane.
      Highly cross linked collagen fillers have higher incidence of side effects including hypersensitivity reactions that present as hard inflammed nodules.
      Plain nodule formation (without other side effects ie swelling, tenderness) might be also due to inappropriate injection technique where too much filler was placed in one area.
      I would really have to see you to determine which of the scenarios could explain your lip nodules. Please stop by when in NYC.

    The woman in these before and after pictures is naturally beautiful. However, I am really amazed by the results of the dermal fillers. Her face is simply transformed in the most subtle ways. Wow, amazing! Thank you for sharing these tips.
