Tighter Skin & Fat Loss, Without the Surgery

When you think of fat loss or tightening loose skin, what comes to mind? Healthy foods, hours of sweaty gym time, or surgery? With medical advances of today, doctors have found solutions to help you achieve your desired contour without surgical downtime, or an overly-intense gym routine.

However, to get the perfect body contour you’ve been dreaming of, you may need to combine different methods to achieve your desired results. Read on to learn about some options available to eliminate stubborn fat and tighten loose skin.

Fat Loss with CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is recommended for patients who are in fairly good shape, but can’t seem to lose fat in specific areas. Fat is eliminated in this process by controlled cooling. The procedure targets fat cells deep under the skin where they freeze and then die. Your body then naturally eliminates the dead cells— for good!

Tighter Skin with Venus Freeze

Venus Freeze can be used to firm up any area of your body that has lax skin. The procedure combines radio frequency and a magnetic pulse to produce heat under the skin’s surface. The skin will then create more collagen to heal these areas, therefore tightening the skin.

After CoolSculpting, we find that patients have only addressed one area of concern— fat loss! By combining both of these methods, the team at BOYD Beauty can create the body contour that you’ve always dreamed of by also removing loose skin to optimize your results. Don’t decide between just fat removal or tightening skin; CoolSculpting and Venus Freeze can be used in tandem to give you flatter, better results.

Non-Invasive Treatments for Eyes

The eyes are known as the window to our soul, so many people want their eyes to look as youthful, alert, and welcoming as possible. As we age, the delicate skin around our eyes can sag and wrinkle, causing us to look tired. If you wish to rejuvenate your eyes without undergoing invasive surgery, BOYD offers a selection of non-invasive treatments that work to stimulate collagen around the eyes for a more youthful appearance.

Pellevé Skin Treatment

The Pellevé Skin Treatment combines radiofrequency energy with a facial to smooth and tighten the skin around your eyes. There are no needles, injections, or downtime involved, making this a popular choice for those on the go. Radiofrequency waves penetrate and heat the deep layers of the skin, causing collagen to contract while simultaneously stimulating new collagen production. Over the course of six months, patients should see their skin becoming smoother and tighter. Treatments once a month are recommended for optimal results.

Venus Freeze

Venus Freeze combines magnetic pulses and radiofrequency to tighten the under-eye area. Working to reduce fat pockets and contour sagging areas, this treatment feels like a warm massage, and triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastic fibers for youthful-looking skin. There is no anesthesia required, and treatment is virtually painless. Most patients can return to their daily routine immediately. Approximately six to eight treatments spaced a week apart are recommended for optimal results. You may then continue treatment as little as every 4 weeks to every 12 weeks maximum for upkeep.

Ultherapy

Using ultrasound energy waves, Ultherapy penetrates the skin’s deepest layers, tightening sagging skin around the eyes while stimulating collagen production. Over a three-month period, the deepest layers of your skin will build new collagen, resulting in an overall tightening of the treatment area. Each treatment takes between 30 to 60 minutes. Following treatment, patients are free to go about their daily tasks as soon as they feel comfortable. It is recommended that patients receive treatments every six months to a year to maintain results.

Alternative Injectable Treatments

For patients who are experiencing under eye hollows, combining a non-invasive skin tightening treatment along with an injectable filler will completely transform your eyes for a more youthful appearance. Juvederm or Restylane® is a great option for the eye area. These fillers can add volume under the skin for immediate results and improvement. Botox® can also treat unwanted crow’s feet around the eyes for a smoother appearance. The skill of the injector is the most important thing when choosing an injectable treatment under the eyes.  This is an extremely sensitive area and treatment must be safely administered by a skilled injector in order to maximize your anti-aging treatment with minimal discomfort or bruising. Dr. Boyd is an expert and extremely skilled in treating the sensitive eye and tear trough area.
