Cosmetic Surgery For Weddings

wedding-cosmetic-surgeryMany brides are nervous enough about their wedding day, and will do whatever it takes to look their best. Some start diets, while others work out endlessly. Still others visit makeup and hair artists for the perfect style. One of the latest trends is for brides to schedule plastic surgery months in advance for their wedding day. Recently, wedding dresses have become more form fitting and less forgiving than in the past. Because of this, wives-to-be have become much more focused on their appearance.

Cosmetic surgery can make the bride feel better about herself and be better prepared for her big day. Most brides are concerned about their breast size, their weight, wrinkles and other signs of aging, or skin that is not clear and smooth. As a result, breast augmentations, liposuction, Botox and Coolaser (laser skin resurfacing), are the most frequently chosen procedures. But brides, be warned—enough time should be left after the procedure to make sure that a full recovery is done. Suffering complications due to a rushed convalescence is not desirable. Six weeks is usually sufficient, but three months is the recommended time period; the lady in question will be fully healed and results will be visible as well.

Coolaser the New Facelift

When looking in the mirror, most people’s eyes are immediately drawn to their facial flaws. This can be a constant source of insecurity. While wrinkles might give us character, they can also adversely emphasize our age. Coolaser is a non-surgical method to arrest the appearance of the aging process. The treatment is relatively quick and easy, especially compared to a traditional surgical facelift, resulting in healthier and smoother skin. Continue reading

Youthful Hands with Coolaser and Radiesse

You can tell a person’s age by looking at their hands. Radiesse and Coolaser can reduce wrinkles, age spots and more for smoother and younger looking hands.

Beverly Hills, California, July 2, 2009 — Crinkly and discolored hands can look young again with Radiesse and Coolaser treatments.

One area of the body that gives away a person’s age more than any other area is the hands. A young person has youthful, young looking hands. The skin is smooth and full and there are few if any wrinkles or prominent veins and certainly no age spots. As we grow older, however, so do our hands. Evidence of the veins becomes pronounced, wrinkles and discoloration appear.

Fortunately, Doctor Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills, offers Coolaser and Radiesse treatments that can make older looking hands look young again.
“Maybe the eyes are the windows to the soul but your hands are like the rings of a tree, they give away your age every time, ” says Doctor Ourian. “However, with some relatively simple procedures I can make your hands appear more youthful. I use the Coolaser to treat any age spots and discoloration. Then I inject dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of veins on the hands and plump up the skin.

Radiesse is a dermal filler that incorporates calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a gel. Sometimes after a treatment there is slight redness, tenderness, swelling or an itching sensation. However, these mild side effects typically disappear after one or two days.

Then there is Coolaser which is an advanced laser treatment that is effective for all skin tones. Treatments usually take only 10 to 15 minutes. How does it work? The areas of the hand that need to be treated are cooled with a numbing cream and cool air. Then a rapid pulse laser is flashed over the areas. After the laser, the areas get a moisturizing cream that is applied for healing.

As noted Doctor Ourian highly recommends both procedures for younger looking hands. “I like to think my work speaks for itself, ” concludes Doctor Ourian.

Look at what just some of his clients have said about their Coolaser and Radiesse treatments:

“The Coolaser was more effective than any other laser.”

“Epione is the best; the Coolaser has improved my skin tremendously. Thank you Epione! You’re the best!”

“Doctor Ourian was very attentive with me. My skin had aged dramatically as I hit my forties and he knew the right treatment to prevent the aging and turn the clock back on my skin. The staff at Epione was brilliant!”

The Coolaser Skin Treatment For Acne

A new procedure helps treat acne for all skin types.

How do you treat your acne? Do you squeeze your pimples? Do you use expensive creams and abrasive pads that irritate your skin and leave you blotchy and uncomfortable? Do you wash your face religiously and hope that the pimples disappear before any important events? There are many different ways to treat acne, but as you can see, they can range from useless to scar inducing. And many of these treatments don’t take people of color into account, whose skin will develop raised scars if not treated correctly. Well, worry no more, because Epione Beverly Hills has developed a skin treatment called the Coolaser that gets rid of acne and other skin problems.

So how does Coolaser work? The skin is cooled down using a combination of numbing cream and super cooled air, and then a rapid pulse laser is flashed on the area. The light instantly vaporizes the skin cells on the first layer of skin. Your body then begins to replace the old skin cells with new, younger looking ones right away. A moisturizing cream is applied to your skin right after the procedure, soothing your skin and eliminating dryness. Since the lights treat at a depth of one ten millionth, this means a faster recovery time and less scarring for you. Before you know it, in 15 minutes or less you’ll be back on the town!

The lack of scarring is what draws olive and darker complexioned people to this method. Keloids, or raised scars on the skin are not an attractive option for many people. In fact, they may feel as though they’re stuck. If they treat the acne using conventional means, it may not work and they wind up with acne scabs and scars. If they use more high tech methods, it may go wrong—and they could still end up with scabs and scars. Coolaser avoids the entire problem by not overly damaging the skin. Scar tissue doesn’t have a chance.

Patients that have had Coolaser treatments typically report that the procedure only causes mild discomfort that usually fades soon after the treatment. Best results are usually obtained by staying out of the sun and using the creams provided. In particular, users who suffer from severe acne report a dramatic improvement in their looks and skin tone after having Coolaser done. After having suffered from acne for years, they can finally have the smooth skin they’ve been waiting for all their lives. Many wish they’d discovered the process sooner, and most recommend it to anyone with a skin problem.

There’s no better way to treat severe acne than Coolaser. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s effective. Men and women can use it. So can any skin type, without fear of scarring. The fast recovery time and dramatic improvement are an added bonus as well.

Fight Dark Circles with Advanced Cosmetic Procedures

Dark circles mar the appearance of a person’s face. Today, dark circles can be reduced with the help of advanced cosmetic procedures.
Today, no one has to live with dark circles. Advanced cosmetic procedures are available.

For women and men who want faces that look as young and as healthy as possible, the last things they desire on their faces are dark circles. These are dark areas under the eyes that can mar the appearance of one’s face. Dark circles can make a person look old, tired and unhealthy.

What causes dark circles? In addition to factors such as lack of sleep, dark circles are caused by a variety of conditions. For example, heredity is a cause of dark circles. If they run in your family, chances are that could be why you have them. Or, there may be an excess amount of pigmentation under your eyes that runs in your family or ethnic makeup. Dark circles can be caused by skin conditions such as eczema. It can also be caused by allergies. (Rubbing your eyes in these conditions can make it worse.) Colds and infections can create dark circles. Aging is another reason why dark circles can appear under your eyes. Also, they can appear due to a lack of proper nutrition.

A good diet, exercise and plenty of sleep are cure alls for just about everything that ails us, but it is not enough for those with chronic dark circles.

There are plenty of under eye cosmetics to help with the condition of dark circles, and many of them do the job, temporarily. Once the makeup comes off, the dark circles are still there. There are also special creams that you can buy over the counter and professionally to help with dark circles. Depending on the quality of the brand, these creams have proven to show improvement for some people. Also, there are natural ways to treat dark circles, such as placing tea bags under your eyes.

However, one of the best ways to eliminate dark circles is with advanced laser treatments available from qualified doctors. These procedures are non-invasive, quick and require little recovery time. The new advanced therapies work for both light skin, but also dark skin, which in the past has not responded well to traditional laser treatments. Advanced laser treatments may also be combined with dermal fillers for the most attractive result. At Epione Beverly Hills, Medical Director Simon Ourian, M.D. offers the Coolaser, his proprietary laser system, for the treatment of dark circles. “Depending on the needs of the individual patient I like to combine Coolaser with a dermal filler such as Radiesse® for optimal results, “ says Doctor Ourian.
