Why wait until the official start of the holidays when you can start working on your desired body now? Whether you want to reduce the signs of aging in your face, get a more toned body or get rid of that pesky cellulite, we have a treatment for you. The sooner you start these treatments, the better results you’ll get right in time for the holidays. Dr. Jennifer Levine and her team pride themselves on offering treatments such as Ultherapy, Emsculpt, Coolsculpting and QWO, all of which are minimally invasive and can help you achieve your holiday aesthetic goals.
If you are looking for a face lift without surgery, you should consider Ultherapy. Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared treatment to use ultrasound for a face “lift.” While lasers improve the appearance of the superficial skin layers, Ultherapy goes much deeper,targeting the cells responsible for producing collagen. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of new collagen to lift and tighten the skin, while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy is also effective for the arms, reducing laxity and tightening the skin. This is perfect for thos who are not quite ready for surgery or are looking to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery. Ultherapy does not duplicate results you would get with a surgical facelift, but it is an effective alternative for those with mild to moderately loose skin around the face and neck. An Ultherapy treatment takes about 60 to 90 minutes.Some patients report experiencing the feeling of heat as well as tingling during the procedure. You will be able to experience complete toning and lifting within 2-3 months after treatment. More improvements will be evident up to 6 months after the procedure.
If you are like many people who want to have a well toned muscular body but don’t have hours to dedicate to working out, then Emsculpt is what you need. Emsculpt is a non-invasive treatment that not only burns fat but also tones and sculpts muscles in the process. Emsculpt can be used to reduce fat and tone the following areas: abs, glutes, thighs and arms. Emsculpt uses a combination of radiofrequency heating and high intensity focused electromagnetic fields to stimulate contractions of targeted muscles thus reducing fat and toning simultaneously. The entire process is painless, though clients have reported that the process will leave you feeling a bit sore as if you have just gone through an intense workout. Treatment sessions are only 30 minutes long, and 3-4 treatments is equivalent to 6-12 months of diet and exercise. You can look better and feel stronger without invasive surgery or recovery time. Exercises for the abdominal muscles and glutes repeatedly contract the muscles to increase strength and tone overtime, Emsculpt uses the same principle to stimulate contractions up to 20,000 times in a single session. Emsculpt will have your arms, abs and glutes toned right in time for the holidays.
CoolSculpting is the first of its kind that kills fat cells by freezing them, using its patented technology to eliminate the fat cells by freezing them through a process named cryolipolysis. It works by targeting and cooling fat cells to around 4 degrees Celsius, which triggers the natural process of cell death rather than immediately killing off the fat cells. This helps to ensure that the patient does not get frostbite or scarring on their skin. Side effects of this treatment could include redness, pain, numbing, swelling and bruising in the area being treated. Cryolipolysis is 100% non-invasive. Dr. Levine holds the part of your body you need to lose weight from between two paddles. The paddles cool quickly, and the doctor leaves them in place for about 35 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes. During that time, the process destroys about 20%-25% of the fat cells in the area that’s targeted. We are the only office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan to offer Dual CoolSculpting Elite, which allows four areas to be treated at once.
QWO is a minimally invasive treatment that reduces cellulite through injections. The enzymes in QWO, called collagenases, target a structural cause of cellulite under the skin. QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. Dr. Levine injects QWO directly into cellulite dimples on the buttocks—up to 12 injections for a single treatment, or 24 injections for two treatments. Once injected, the enzyme in QWO targets collagen to release the septae, thus releasing the dimple and making the skin appear smooth. QWO requires a total of three sessions, spaced 21 days apart, for a lasting result of 12 months or more. Dr. Levine and her team offer several other cellulite treatments such as Emtone, which is 100% non-invasive and Aveli, which is minimally invasive but only requires a single session. A consultation is required and your goals will be assessed to determine which option is best for you.
Dr. Levine and her team are proud to offer to the busy people of New York, various options to build their dream body. To them, it is not about creating a new person, it is about helping you become the best version of yourself aesthetically.
