A supplement for well-being. The easiest way to get B12

,

Do you know what vitamin B12 is? B12, also known as Cobalamin, is a very important B vitamin. It plays a huge part in creating and regulating our DNA and red blood cells; as well as in the normal function of the brain and the nervous system.

Unfortunately, our bodies do not produce this vitamin naturally and with age it becomes harder to absorb it, resulting in B12 deficiency, which is very common and can lead to neurological difficulties and anemia. Some of the symptoms of B12 deficiency are:

  • Weakness, tiredness, or lightheadedness.
  • Heart palpitations and shortness of breath.
  • Pale skin.
  • Constipation, diarrhea, loss of appetite, or flatulence.
  • Nerve problems, such as: numbness or tingling (like muscle weakness).
  • Loss of vision.
  • Mental problems, like depression or memory loss.

But if our body does not produce it, how can we get it? Well, vitamin B12 can be found naturally in animal products, such as fish, meat, eggs, and dairy products. But as we know, animal based foods are not always the best option for us (especially when trying to eat

healthier or with specific diets), so, the answer to this question can also be to try supplements, like our B12 shots!

So, what are B12 shots?

B12 shots are injections that contain high doses of this vitamin. They are used to quickly elevate the level of B12 as the vitamin goes directly to the bloodstream. Many patients feel the benefits immediately and enjoy the boost of nutrients.

These shots are usually given to people with B12 deficiency; however, people are starting to see the benefits of B12 shots and use them as a treatment for fatigue and to improve their metabolism.

“Although most people are naturally supplied with the correct amount of B12, using a little extra for an energy jolt has no proven downsides,” says Elisa Zied, author of Feed Your Family Right! This is the main reason why celebrities like Charlize Theron, Justin Timberlake and even Madonna are getting vitamin B12 injections regularly.

Most Popular Non-Invasive Anti-Aging Treatments of 2020

If you want to recapture your youthful appearance, taking advantage of the benefits offered by anti-aging treatments is one of the easiest ways to do so today. Each non-invasive procedure is designed to accomplish one or more of the following tasks – eliminate unwanted fat, detoxify and tighten the skin, stimulate collagen, or infuse subtle enhancements to restore a younger, more radiant countenance. Facial scars, fine lines, bags under the eyes, sagging skin, and wrinkles can make you look older, diminishing your self-confidence. While you cannot completely remove the signs of aging, you can minimize their appearance. Your face is one of your most important assets, so why not protect it? Here’s a look at what you need to know about the most popular non-invasive, anti-aging treatments.

Top 6 Highest Recommended Anti-Aging Treatments in 2020

As the demand for shorter, gentler, more effective methods of body and facial rejuvenation grow stronger with time, sophisticated methods offering fast, long-lasting results came into existence. The top six highest recommended anti-aging treatments in 2020 include CoolSculpting®, micro-needling with SkinPen, dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing with ActiveFX®, Kybella®, and Thermage®. Each anti-aging treatment is tailored to the patient’s needs and subtly infuses age-defying changes that reshape the body, reduce redness, minimizes creases, and lightens discolorations.

1. CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® offers a revolutionary breakthrough in the world of noninvasive aesthetic medicine. It gently delivers fat reduction without the need to diet or exercise. Prior to this modern development, liposuction was the only successful way to eliminate stubborn fat effectively and safely without requiring patients to also embrace an exercise and diet program. In fact, CoolSculpting® is recommended for stubborn fat pockets that aren’t readily eliminated by dieting or exercising.

CoolSculpting® uses crylypolisis, a scientifically guided process, to eliminate fat cells by freezing them, effectively shaping the patient’s physical appearance to match their desired goals. The newest line of applicators delivers high-quality results in shorter treatment times, efficiently reducing the procedure to approximately one-half of the original hour needed to treat a single area. Bruising and discomfort have also been reduced as a result of newer technology.

Today, CoolSculpting® is the most demanded anti-aging treatment in the world. The treatment is entirely noninvasive and requires little, if any, downtime for recovery. In fact, most patients are able to resume their daily activities within minutes of undergoing this noninvasive treatment that takes as little as 35 minutes. CoolSculpting® is perfect for people who simply want to reduce stubborn fat areas beneath the chin or on the back of the arms. It is also the ideal solution for people who wish to reduce the size of their waists.

2. Micro-needling with SkinPen®

Microneedling with SkinPen® is a popular procedure that is FDA-cleared for clinical use in treating facial acne scars in adults who are 22 years of age or older. Its popularity stems from the fact that it is minimally invasive and highly effective in growing new facial skin leading to a more natural appearance.

Microneedling with SkinPen® reduces the appearance of facial scars, shrinks enlarged pores, and minimizes the appearance of stretch marks. It can improve the firmness of the skin as well as its texture, successfully restoring a youthful appearance. Visible results can last up to six months.

During the micro-needling process, fine needles puncture the skin minimally to produce small, controlled skin damage that stimulates renewed production of elastin and collagen. Collagen and elastin are proteins that help provide healthy structure for the skin, allowing it to resist the development of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging.

3. The Latest in Dermal Fillers and Techniques

Filling in facial folds and creases with dermal fillers is nothing new. However, the techniques used to do so are newer, leading to shorter treatment times and faster recovery. Facial or soft tissue fillers are injected directly beneath the skin’s surface. They are designed to smooth out common problem areas forming around the lips and eyes as well as on the forehead. The three primary methods used today include liquid facelift, lip enhancement, and Botox®.

A non-invasive full-face rejuvenation is most commonly called a liquid facelift. It is designed to improve the firm and supple nature of skin in order to correct skin laxity and minimize the development and appearance of facial wrinkles. The aging process typically diminishes volume in the face, skull, and jaw due to the loss of bone mass as well as fat loss. Detrimental skin changes also play an important role in facial aging. A liquid facelift is designed to successfully address these issues in order to restore a more natural appearance.

The treatment combines the use of dermal fillers with muscle relaxers in order to achieve the appearance of a facelift without resorting to surgery. Injections are often made beneath the eyes, along the jawline, and in the cheeks, nose, temples, glabella, chin, and forehead. Results typically last for one to two years.

Lip enhancement is the term given to the cosmetic treatment designed to restore plumpness to the lips. This type of procedure restores hydration to the lips, readily creating renewed plumpness and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and creases. Typically, the borders of the lips become more naturally defined, regaining their symmetrical appearance. Dermal fillers designed for this specific purpose include Juvederm®, Volbella® and Restylane®. The results often last up to 12 months.

Botox is a purified protein delivered through injections. Not only is Botox successful in banishing wrinkles and fine lines from the face, but it is commonly recommended as a treatment for a wide assortment of medical issues. Botox is commonly used to treat the frequent occurrence of migraines, excessive sweating under the arms, uncontrolled drooling, and muscular disorders such as muscle stiffness and spasms. Botox is often injected to remedy a number of bladder disorders, including overactive and leaking bladder, as well as a variety of eye disorders, including uncontrolled blinking and crossed eyes.

Different forms of botulinum toxin solutions are used, depending on the problem being addressed. The injection site also varies according to the issue being treated. For example, when treating frequent migraines, a trained professional injects the muscles of the neck and head.

When used cosmetically, Botox® injections are highly effective in treating facial creases ranging in severity from moderate to intense. It blocks signals between the nerves and facial muscles in order to diminish the visibility of frown lines and crow’s feet. Tiny injections are placed directly into muscle tissue. Facial lines fade because muscle movement diminishes as the nerves become restricted. The results are temporary but should last approximately four to six months.

4. Laser Skin Resurfacing with ActiveFX™

Fighting the signs of aging often involves treating a variety of skin issues, including acne scarring, skin discoloration, fine lines, sagging, enlarged pores, and wrinkles. Fractional laser resurfacing has risen in popularity, partly because of its flexibility in creating noticeably visible results in all of these areas. Plus, it is less painful than dermabrasion and chemical peels.

Laser Skin Resurfacing with ActiveFX™ uses powerful fractional laser technology to gently remove upper layers of skin and stimulate collagen production. As a result, new skin growth is firm and tight, allowing it to resist unwanted changes such as creasing and wrinkling. Due to enhanced collagen production, your skin looks plumper than it did prior to your ActiveFX™ treatment.

Fractional laser resurfacing produces excellent outcomes with minimal recovery time. Most patients require only a single treatment. Given proper skin care, the results of laser skin resurfacing last for several years.

5. Kybella – Jawline Rejuvenation

As people age, fat develops in unwanted places. When it does so beneath the jawline, it sags visibly enough to look like a second chin. A non-invasive anti-aging treatment, Kybella® gently eliminates the fat creating the appearance of a double chin. In addition to minimizing the fullness of the area beneath the chin line, Kybella® improves the tightness of the skin by stimulating the renewed production of collagen.

Kybella® is a once-and-done procedure that provides permanent results. It eliminates the fat forever from this area, restoring the natural appearance of the jawline and delivering a younger countenance.

6. Thermage®

Thermage® embraces deep-heating technology to tighten and contour the skin. No injections are needed, and surgery is not involved during this skin-tightening procedure, which is entirely noninvasive. One of its benefits is that it works well on all skin tones and types, unlike lasers. In most cases, minimal or no downtime occurs, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure is performed. Typically, only mild side effects are experienced, and they may include minor blistering, swelling, or redness.

Thermage treatments use Capacitive Radio Frequency technology, also known as CRF technology, to heat all three layers of skin, successfully stimulating collagen production in order to tighten the skin’s appearance. Skin texture and tone also noticeably improve during this noninvasive procedure. Thermage® treatments produce continuous enhancement in collagen production, creating ongoing improvement in the tightness of the skin for as long as four to six months. This anti-aging procedure takes place during a single, pain-free session. Thermage® treatments are available for many areas of the body, including the stomach, buttocks, legs, arms, hands, neck, face, chin, and eyelids.

Looking younger is a popular goal among people of all ages. Today, it is easier than ever to accomplish this task, partly because so many non-invasive anti-aging solutions are readily available at medical spas throughout the San Diego area. If you are interested in learning more about one or more of these cosmetic procedures, please contact Ageless & Beautiful Medical Spa for a no-cost consultation.

The 4 Top Skin Tightening Treatments that Actually Work

For patients who prefer not to undergo a partial or full facelift, choosing one of the latest skin tightening treatments provides an excellent alternative to the invasiveness of surgery. Downtime with this procedure is typically shorter, and the cost is considerably lower. As an added perk, the positive results offered by today’s skin tightening treatments are undeniably beautiful and last well up to a year or two. If you are tired of wishing for younger-looking skin, it’s time to step out of your comfort zone and realize just how youthful your face and body can appear after a skin tightening treatment.

Many options for skin tightening exist, and the most popular treatments today include Thermage®, ActiveFX™, and Coolsculpting®. Their success comes partly from their ability to stimulate new elastin and collagen growth, enhancing the skin’s elasticity and supple nature. Each of these skin tightening procedures also smooths the appearance of an individual’s skin by improving its texture and tone. If you are ready to put away your skin-firming lotions and creams in lieu of a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that delivers long-lasting results, keep reading to learn more about your options.


Thermage

No Injections or Surgery

Thermage® is a non-invasive procedure designed to assist in contouring and tightening the skin. It embraces the power of Capacitive Radio Frequency technology, which is more commonly referred to as CRF technology, to create younger looking skin by improving its color and tone as well as its firmness. While it may not make sense at first to consider using radio frequencies to smooth and beautify your skin, this noninvasive treatment tightens, firms, and smooths your skin painlessly and easily.

Thermage® is commonly used to beautify the skin around the brows, eyelids, neck, and lower portion of the face. It does so by targeting these areas using radio frequencies chosen for their ability to tighten and shrink the skin. CRF Technology allows your cosmetic specialist to penetrate all of your skin layers in a single setting. The treatment gently heats the skin to stimulate collagen production, a necessary component of supple skin. More specifically, the radio frequencies interact with existing collagen fibers, causing them to begin producing higher levels of this amino-acid based protein. Collagen supports the skin’s elasticity and strength, helping it to resist the signs of aging.

Although Thermage® doesn’t actually melt fat away, it does deliver the illusion that fat has simply disappeared from the face or body. This illusion stems from the successful skin tightening results delivered by the Thermage® procedure.

The increased production of collagen helps maintain healthier, stronger skin and promotes lasting results that remain for up to six months. In fact, while you will notice an immediate refinement in your skin’s appearance after your Thermage® treatment, this improvement will continue to grow over the next few days and weeks.

Most patients require only a single treatment per area with no apparent downtime. On occasion, a second treatment may be required for particularly stubborn areas of skin. Although results vary among patients, most individuals can expect to see these enhancements last for half a year. Eventually, the skin begins to lose some of its renewed firmness and enhanced texture, leading to the need to make a new appointment. The best time to schedule another Thermage® procedure is once you notice the results of your first treatment are beginning to fade. Thermage® is safe to use on all skin types.

The Thermage® procedure is painless before and after the treatment. During the procedure, you will feel the sensation of heat on treated areas as the radio frequencies target specific areas of the skin. Although you will experience warmth, the tip of the device remains cool at all times. The device is designed to apply a cooling spray to your skin when its surface temperature reaches a certain point. Depending on the size of the area being treated, your procedure can last between one and two hours.

Most patients experience no discomfort. Individuals with a sensitivity to this type of cosmetic procedure can receive a topical anesthetic or over-the-counter pain medication to alleviate any discomfort they experience without influencing the results of the procedure.

Benefits of Thermage®

In addition to younger looking skin, Thermage® offers the following benefits:

  • Outpatient appointment
  • Single visit
  • Immediate results

Areas of Treatment with Thermage

The versatility of this cosmetic procedure makes it possible to use it successfully on various parts of the body safely. The most commonly treated areas include the skin located:

  • On the forehead (treats sagging and furrowed brows)
  • Surrounding the eyes (treats hooding and fine lines)
  • Surrounding the mouth (treats fine lines and wrinkles)
  • On the cheeks (treats wrinkles and fine lines)
  • Beneath the chin (treats sagging and looseness)
  • Along the jaw (treats sagging, looseness, and wrinkles)
  • On the neck (treats sagging and looseness)
  • On the jowls (treats looseness and sagging)

While Thermage® treatments are more popularly chosen for the face, chin, eyelids, and neck, Thermage® Body Shape treatments are available for:

  • The legs (treats crepey skin, flabbiness, and cellulite)
  • The buttocks (treats looseness and sagging)
  • The hands (treats sagging skin)
  • The arms (treats cellulite and sagging skin)


ActiveFX

Tighter Skin and Fewer Wrinkles

Laser Skin Resurfacing with ActiveFX™ embraces the technology behind fractional laser technology to remedy skin damage caused by the natural aging process, environmental factors, and poor skin care. It is designed to make the skin look plumper and younger as well as to encourage a softer yet more elastic texture. It can be used to treat acne scarring, fine lines, deep wrinkles, and uneven skin coloring. This cosmetic procedure is popular due to its ability to minimize the signs of aging that take away from the natural beauty of the skin. It minimizes the appearance of imperfections gently and safely as it softens fine lines and wrinkles, reduces discoloration, minimizes sagginess, and help restore some of the skin’s natural ability to resist damage.

ActiveFX™ promotes the new growth of skin cells to deliver younger-looking skin. In particular, this skin tightening treatment improves both the firmness of the skin as well as its elasticity. It is primarily used to minimize noticeable signs of imperfection on the face. ActiveFX™ also promotes renewed collagen production, producing long-lasting results. While you may be able to notice results immediately, the full benefit of this procedure takes time. The boost in collagen production continues to improve your skin’s appearance, enhancing the overall results achieved with this innovative skin tightening procedure.

Prior to your ActiveFX™ treatment, your skin is numbed to minimize any discomfort arising from the procedure. No injections are needed. A topical agent is applied to the treatment area prior to beginning the skin tightening procedure. An experienced and trained specialist targets the treatment area with a specialized laser in an effort to restore your skin to a more youthful appearance. This high-energy laser has the ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and creases as well as to lighten darker patches of skin. The laser is actually a beam of high-energy light, and it is perfectly safe to use.

During the procedure, the laser gently removes the uppermost layers of skin tissue. Deeper layers remain untouched. The depth of skin that is removed is extremely thin. This strategy limits discomfort to the upper layers, while also promoting faster healing. Only a small portion of skin needs to heal, minimizing not only the amount of time needed to heal but also the level of pain experienced by the patient.

Benefits of ActiveFX

When you choose ActiveFX™ to remedy facial imperfections, you avoid more invasive procedures, allowing you to relax and enjoy your beneficial results without experiencing unwanted side effects such as pain and bleeding. ActiveFX™ delivers the following advantages:

  • Minimal downtime
  • Longlasting results
  • Outpatient appointment

Areas of Treatment with ActiveFX

ActiveFX™ is used to treat a wide variety of skin issues, including age spots, oversized pores, scars, pigmentation problems, sagginess, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. Treatment areas include:

  • Overall countenance (treating acne scars, facial lines, creases, large pores, age spots, and uneven skin tone)
  • Lips (treating smoker’s lines)
  • Eyes (treating saggy eyelid skin and wrinkles)


Coolsculpting®

Non Invasive Procedure

Coolsculpting® is a non-invasive procedure designed to transform the body by restoring its natural beauty through fat reduction. It can be used to reshape nine different FDA treatment areas, minimizing the presence of fat so effectively that the body looks slimmer and fitter. The Coolsculpting® process is designed as a stand-alone procedure. There’s no need to begin an exercise routine or diet plan to maintain your results. Of course, doing so only enhances the results you achieve by giving your fat cells the chill.

This FDA-cleared procedure embraces the technology behind cryolipolysis and uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat pockets, particularly areas resistant to diet and exercise. It is a fat freezing procedure that safely eliminates fat pockets while restoring a more youthful, slimmer appearance to different areas of the body. Whether you want to get rid of your double chin or slim down, Coolsculpting® offers an excellent option to do so easily and painlessly.

Coolsculpting® delivers noticeable results with minimal bruising. Today’s treatments take approximately thirty minutes during an in-office visit to your cosmetic specialist. This procedure delivers a smoother tummy, narrower midsection, trimmer thighs, and slimmer arms using uniquely designed applicators. Any discomfort is easily treated with over-the-counter pain medication, allowing patients to jump back into their activities without hesitation.

When you diet, your fat cells shrink. When you choose Coolsculpting®, your fat cells are eliminated permanently. Fat cells die when they are frozen, and they pass through the liver where they are processed for natural removal from your body. The results achieved through this process are permanent, eliminating the need to starve yourself or spend hours each day on the treadmill.

While Coolsculpting® delivers permanent results, it does so gradually. It takes about three weeks before you will notice any improvement in treated areas. By the time three months have passed, your slimmer shape is readily noticeable. The full benefit of this non-invasive procedure appears in four to six months.

Coolsculpting® is entirely safe and involves little to no discomfort. You may experience minor pain and a tugging sensation during the procedure. The most common side effects include minor redness, bruising, and swelling for the first few weeks as the fat cells begin to travel to the liver for elimination.

Benefits of Coolsculpting®

When you choose the Coolsculpting® process, you avoid surgery. No invasive techniques are used, and no anesthesia is required. Your downtime after the procedure is brief, and you can go back to your daily activities immediately.

You also gain access to each of the following benefits:

  • Highly trained specialists
  • Precisely created procedure delivering safe results
  • Intuitive devices designed for safe use

Areas of Treatment with Coolsculpting®

Advances in technology and modifications to CoolSculpting® devices make it possible to treat more areas of the body successfully than previously. Coolsculpting® procedures have currently been approved for the following FDA-identified treatment areas:

  • Abdomen (treating fatty fullness)
  • Outer thighs (treating cellulite)
  • Inner thighs (treating cellulite)
  • Upper arms (treating cellulite)
  • Lower stomach (treating fatty fullness)
  • Buttocks (treating banana rolls)
  • Flanks (treating muffin tops and love handles)
  • Back (treating fat deposits forming beneath the bra line or on the lower side of the back above the buttocks)
  • Submental area (treating double chins)

The aging process is rarely kind to the skin. The loss of collagen leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin, making people look older than they are. Finding the courage to reimagine your skin is easy once you learn about the pain-free, non-invasive options available for skin tightening. Isn’t it time to look and feel better than you ever have? If you want to discuss the non-surgical options available today, please contact the offices of Ageless & Beautiful Medical Spa today.


Dermal Fillers

Reduce Wrinkles and Fine Lines

How long do fillers in the face last?

Typically, the type of dermal filler used to treat facial skin determines how long the results last. Restylane® and Perlane® provide quality results lasting between six and twelve months. The full range of Juvederm® fillers delivers varying results. Juvederm Volbella®, Juvederm Ulta Plus XC®, and Juvederm Ultra XC® provide enhancements lasting up to a full year, Juvederm Vollure® lasts between twelve and eighteen months, and Juvederm Voluma® lasts up to twenty-four months. Radiesse® delivers facial enhancement for as long as eighteen to twenty-four months. Belotero® Balance has a shorter duration of six months.

What are the side effects of facial fillers?

All skin treatments come with the possibility of experiencing side effects. The most common side effects associated with facial fillers occur at the injection site and include minor redness, bruising, discomfort, or swelling. On rare occasion, a patient may experience tiny bumps beneath the skin, a rash, headache, or itchy skin. Each of these side effects is temporary and improve gradually over time. Some patients may not even experience side effects after the procedure, while a small number of individuals may have a mild allergic reaction to the filler’s ingredients.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Dermal fillers formulated with hyaluronic acid are extremely safe, particularly because this ingredient occurs in the human body naturally. They are also FDA-approved, a fact which validates the fact that these substances are proven to be safe for their intended purpose as facial fillers. Choosing a trained specialist to perform your filler treatment enhances the safety of this type of skin treatment. In general, synthetic dermal fillers are safe to use as long as an experienced specialist performs the procedure.

How much are dermal fillers?

The cost of dermal fillers is influenced by the type of filler, the number of areas being treated, the size of the area being treated, and the expertise of the professional performing the treatment. The extent of the damage being corrected can also increase the price since it influences the number of injections needed during the procedure. The cost of a single injection depends on the type of filler and typically ranges between $500 and $800. Each additional injection increases the cost of your dermal filler procedure.
