Hand, legs & body
Aging causes sagging of the skin around the arms. With time, there is a decrease in the production of structural proteins like collagen and elastin, which provide elasticity and firmness to the skin. Additionally, significant weight loss may also cause drooping skin on the arms. Sometimes, even with exercise and weight loss pockets of excess stubborn fat remain on the upper arms.
BodyTite is a procedure based on RF thermal coagulation of subcutaneous tissue that may be followed by aspiration of the liquified fat. It’s a great solution for individuals who are looking to reduce fat without the saggy, wrinkly skin. It also helps improve skin laxity after weight loss or due to aging.
Breast augmentation provides women who are unhappy with the size or shape of their breasts with a way to enhance or improve their breasts. While a major aspect of breast augmentation is increasing the size of the breasts, the overall goal is to enhance the breasts in a way that complements the individual’s shape and curves.
If sagging has robbed your breasts of their attractive shape and appearance, it may be time to consider getting a breast lift. A breast lift offers a way to reverse the effects that aging, pregnancy, and changes in weight can have on the appearance of the breasts.
Gluteal implants can be surgically placed, and they’re similar to breast implants, but for the butt. It can work well, but there are risks. The Brazilian Butt Lift takes excess fat and moves it to the backside. This is a good solution, but only works for people who have a lot of fat but a flat or thin butt. Also, you have to avoid lying on your back or sitting for three weeks after the surgery – not easy.
There is no joy when it comes to addressing unwanted body hair. Most of the available methods are uncomfortable or painful, like shaving, plucking, and waxing. Laser reduction works well, but not for all hair types or colors. Lasers need contrast, so if you have light hair on light skin, or dark hair on dark skin it’s not going to work as well.

Often, we’re removing unwanted hair, and the laser and electrolysis services we offer can keep you smooth and sleek. However, we do want full hair on top of our heads, and overly thinned eyebrows are undesirable. Hair restoration can also hide scars, fill in a beard, and replace hair you once removed (e.g. from the chest or genital areas).

Unlike most practices, we apply a topical numbing cream prior to the procedure in order to keep the treatment comfortable (Dr. Spiegel is known to fall asleep when he gets microneedling done. “It’s like a massage,” he says.) After this is removed we cleanse the skin and apply a pure hyaluronic acid (HA) serum. The HA acts as a lubricant so the microneedling device can glide smoothly across the skin, but more importantly the hyaluronic acid penetrates the skin through the channels which we’re creating.
In most cases, new moms are simply too busy taking care of their babies to notice the effects that the birth has had on their own appearances. However, more and more of them are realizing just how much of a toll giving birth takes on their bodies, and as a result, are opting to having various forms of mommy makeover procedures performed.
Scar repair and revision is an easy and quick way to improve an unsightly scar.
