Aging is natural. But, it isn’t always comfortable for most. It’s hard to accept new lines, curves and bulges that you spend hours in the gym trying to tone. As we age, we go through hormonal
changes, our metabolism slows by 10% every ten years after age 20, and muscle mass
naturally declines. It’s simply a part of life. But with treatments like CoolSculpting®, you can embrace the aging process in a way that empowers you to look and feel your best.
As the body’s estrogen levels decline with age, it directly impacts collagen levels which accelerates aging. Many women don’t realize how important estrogen is to the elasticity, thickness, and moisture levels in their skin! No amount of sunscreen in the world can negate these natural aging cycles. But our team is excited to announce that we’ve found a solution that counteracts this natural aging process so you can redefine how your skin ages. Emepelle skincare line by Biopelle is the first and only product line of its kind. It harnesses the restorative benefits of patented MEP Technology to smooth, hydrate, and restore estrogen-deficient skin!
Summer is coming, and that means many people are starting their fad diets or hopping back on the treadmill for a quick fix. But there’s another solution that takes advantage of today’s technology. Body contouring and remodeling treatments, Evolve and Evoke, will boost your efforts to look and feel your best.
Self-improvement is a concept that everyone can support in the general sense. Exercise, education, spiritual pursuits ― these are things that appeal to humans across gender lines. But when it comes to enhancing one’s appearance, it can feel like exclusively the domain of women. Men are certainly not immune from wanting to look and feel their best, but busy lives and societal pressures may prevent them from seeking the care they desire.
Spring is on its way! Are you taking a step back to relax and enjoying some well-deserved self-care? Pampering and protecting your body’s greatest asset—your skin!
There are two specific ways our team loves to help enhance that Springtime glow, let’s dive in…
Are you one of the many that crave your afternoon caffeine boost in the form of a sugary, bubbly beverage? As adults, we know that soda isn’t the best choice of beverage, yet the taste and energy boost are hard to pass up. But new research is uncovering that soda may do more than perk you up and expand your waistline. Current Nutrition Reports recently shared that drinking sugar-sweetened drinks like soda impacts your gut bacteria, causes inflammation, and increases oxidated stress. Do you know what all those things have in common? They’re causes of early aging. In fact, researchers from the University of California San Francisco shared, “For a daily consumption of the current standard 20-ounce serving size for sugar-sweetened sodas, this corresponds to 4.6 additional years of aging.”
So, why exactly does it cause that type of accelerated aging? Let’s dig a little deeper.

Ah, the age-old question asked when that first fine line or wrinkle appears on your forehead or around your mouth, “When do I need botulinum toxin (Botox or Dysport)?” The honest answer is there’s no one right or wrong way to tell if you need botulinum toxin. It’s a personal decision that has to do with a number of factors from health to confidence levels. The best thing you can do is educate yourself about the aging process, how it works, and decide when the time is right for you! So, let’s start learning, shall we?
Many of us start judging the moment we hear the term “plastic surgery.” We assume the patient is simply trying to look younger without putting in the work. A term like “Mommy Makeover” solidifies these opinions. Yet pre-pregnancy restoration, the medical term for a mommy makeover, serves many important functions. Yes, the procedure quickly reduces excessive abdominal skin and firms up the breasts, but it also strengthens these areas, repairing the musculature to perform exercises, work, and the everyday tasks of parenting.
