Warm weather has finally arrived, and that means summer is right around the corner. Many people are looking forward to spending time by the water—but you may be worried about looking your best in shorts or a swimsuit. Good news: Our team of experts has the tools to make you feel comfortable and confident when showing skin. From injectables to CoolSculpting®, our Rochester, NY, dermatology practice is here to help you have the best summer yet.
We offer many nonsurgical options for slimming trouble spots, toning muscle, improving your skin texture, and more. Here are 5 of our top treatments that will have your body summer-ready in no time.
CoolSculpting Elite is the latest version of CoolSculpting—and it remains one of the top cosmetic procedures in America. The procedure freezes away fat cells in target trouble spots, allowing men and women to shrink areas resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting can be used on multiple parts of the body, including the midsection, thighs, upper arms, and more. All fat cells frozen during treatment are naturally flushed from the body and will never re-form and return.
CoolSculpting Elite works best on “pinchable” areas of fat such as “muffin tops” or “love handles.” We’re proud to be the first and only practice in Rochester to offer the next-generation CoolSculpting Elite system, and our team can treat up to 6 areas during a single session.
Developed by the same company as CoolSculpting, CoolTone focuses on a slightly different aspect of body contouring. Instead of freezing away cells to shrink fat deposits, CoolTone helps you build up strength in major muscle groups across the body. Using magnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions, the procedure can build muscle and burn a small amount of fat in a single treatment. One 30-minute session is the equivalent of completing 25,000 situps.
CoolTone can be used on many parts of the body, such as the abdominals, buttocks, and thighs. After 2 or more treatments, your muscles will be firmer and have a more defined and toned appearance.
Some patients enjoy using it as a low-impact alternative to traditional exercises. However, CoolTone works best as a finishing touch for already active men and women who want to sculpt specific areas.
Summer is the perfect time for a natural, fresh-faced glow. Clear your skin and fade away brown spots with a BBL Hero laser skin rejuvenation treatment. Designed for nearly all skin types, this innovative procedure repairs skin at the molecular level by revitalizing damaged cells. It achieves this restoration by delivering broadband light that penetrates the skin’s outer and deeper layers. These deeper layers are where most of the skin’s aging occurs, and BBL solves the problem right at the source.
BBL can be used on nearly any part of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. We usually recommend it for issues such as freckles, discoloration, acne, or uneven skin texture. A series of treatments is often needed to produce the best results.
Warm weather often means one thing: sweat. Each of our bodies produces sweat at different levels. If you’re naturally predisposed to excessive sweating, you may feel nervous wearing certain types of clothing during summer. Luckily, men and women can treat unwanted underarm sweating with the cosmetic treatment miraDry. MiraDry is a noninvasive treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to eliminate sweat and odor glands.
MiraDry requires no surgery, and we use a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Treatment usually takes around 1 hour. The procedure requires little to no downtime, so you can usually get back to your daily activities right away. Patients experience more than 80% sweat reduction after getting miraDry.
When you’re on vacation or by the water, putting on makeup every day can make your skin feel cakey and suffocated. Skip the foundation by using dermal fillers to fade away wrinkles, dark circles, and more. Injectables are some of the most popular procedures at our practice because they instantly add youthful volume to the face. Our board-certified dermatologists have the skill and expertise to create long-lasting results that look natural and require little to no downtime.
We offer a wide range of dermal fillers in different formulations to treat a variety of issues. JUVÉDERM®, for example, plumps up thin lips, whereas Restylane® corrects age-related volume loss in the cheeks. Our practice also offers state-of-the-art RHA fillers, which adapt to your changing facial expressions by stretching as your skin moves.
Your summer should be spent having fun and relaxing, not worrying over your appearance. With a few easy nonsurgical treatments, you can feel self-assured when enjoying all the activities warm weather brings.
