Achieve a More Youthful Appearance with FaceTite

Achieve a More YouthfulOftentimes, the lower face and neck are among the first areas to show signs of aging. Skin laxity and excess fat beneath the chin can contribute to an aging appearance, often leading to diminished confidence. 

If you’re struggling with signs of aging in the lower face and neck, FaceTite is a treatment option to consider. This non-surgical treatment utilizes radiofrequency energy to tighten loose skin and reduce unwanted volume for a rejuvenated look. 

FaceTite For Skin Tightening and Volume Reduction 

FaceTite is a radiofrequency device that is inserted under the skin with a very small needle. The device heats the skin and underlying fat in a safe and controlled manner, causing the skin to tighten while simultaneously damaging the excess fat cells. The targeted cells are then absorbed by the body, which results in a visible reduction in the volume of the treatment area; this makes FaceTite an excellent option for patients looking to eliminate a double chin or jowls.  Continue reading “Achieve a More Youthful Appearance with FaceTite”

Achieve Cellulite-Free Legs with QWO Treatment

Legs with QWO TreatmentIf you’ve noticed dimpled skin on your legs and buttocks, that means you are experiencing cellulite. This is a very common aesthetic concern that most often impacts women. Despite diet and exercise efforts, countless women struggle with cellulite and feel less confident as a result. Thankfully with the emergence of QWO, these women can finally achieve cellulite-free legs and buttocks. 

Why Does Cellulite Form?

The body stores fat in between the skin and muscle tissue. Fibrous tissue called septae connects the skin and muscle tissue together, and when fat deposits form, the septae continue to keep the skin and muscle attached. This is what creates the dimpled appearance of the skin known as cellulite. 

While medical conditions such as obesity and lymphedema can cause cellulite, it often forms without a known medical cause. This is especially true for women. In past years, treatment options for cellulite were often ineffective, expensive, and the results didn’t last for longer than three months. Now with the revolutionary QWO treatment, women can achieve lasting improvement to cellulite without invasive treatment.  Continue reading “Achieve Cellulite-Free Legs with QWO Treatment”
