When Life Hands You Lemons …

When Life Hands You Lemons …

When life hands you lemons, CRMCLaser says to brighten your skin and improve your health.

Today I wanted to remind all of you that lemons are great for your health and a way to brighten your skin naturally!  While you should always consult with your doctor about your diet and any food allergies, this post is to share information you may not know about the power of lemons in your diet and for your skin.

The citric acid and Vitamin C in lemons (especially the peel) help purify blood vessels and remove impurities found in your skin cells that lead to aging, dark spots, and wrinkles.  The lemon antioxidants help detoxify your skin. If you can handle the bite, it is a great health benefit to actually eat the peel.  The citric acid in lemons includes natural lightening components and is often an ingredient found in skin topical at home recipes for brightening skin.

Although lemons are not the ultimate solution for your unwanted dark spots, acne scars, and wrinkles, feel free to contact our CRMCLaser team anytime for alternatives that are right for you. 323-650-9949

Coolsculpting Freezes The Fat

Coolsculpting Freezes The Fat

The technical term is Cryolipolysis. We call it CoolSculpting which is easier to say and a lot more accurate.

It’s a fair new in-office cosmetic procedure for getting rid of body fat without surgery. Just like it sounds, the process uses cold to eliminate fat.

We freeze the fat cells, literally. Fat cells are far more susceptible to cold than skin cells. Because of this, we can use a device that creates a sub-zero temperature at the skin. Your skin won’t be hurt, bit fat cells beneath the skin will be destroyed.

Yes, it’s cold. We find most of our patients can have a procedure with no pain killers or anesthesia. Patients can also return to their regular activities the same day. Because it is non-invasive, the risks that come with surgical procedures are eliminated.

CoolSculpting has amazing results on love handles and other bulges. We’ve toned buttocks and thighs as well.

You’re not going to see results the next day. Your body still has to flush out the dead fat cells. That takes a few weeks to a few months.

Once the fat cells are gone, that’s it, they are gone forever.

All the available studies, and our experience, have turned up NO long term side effects. Short term, you may have some brief redness. Think of what you skin is like after coming in on a really really cold day. A few people have reported some temporary numbness in the area treated, but that too is just part of your skin being really cold.

CoolSculpting was approved by the FDA in 2010.

Beat the Aging Process

Beat the Aging Process

If time, age, and just the general stress of living are wearing you down, you can do something about it. Get the looks you want through modern cosmetic medical procedures, many of which are non-invasive and can be done in the doctor’s office.

Why should you want to look better?

• It increases your self-esteem. When you look good, it shows in how you walk, talk and act. People will notice this and you’ll garner more respect.

• People will react better when you look good. The first thing most people notice about you is your smile. Dazzle them with pearly whites. We can give you the white teeth you want.

• Remove problems. You don’t have to wax every few days, You don’t have to shave daily. You can get rid of hair permanently with laser removal.

• Blast those wrinkles. We have a variety of treatments for wrinkles including BoTox light therapies, and the Liquid Lift injectable facelift.

Non-surgical nose job. In just a few minutes, our doctors can smooth out bumps and lumps in your nose. This is not a nose reduction or a complete reshaping. Likely you’ll still need rhinoplasty for that. If it’s just a few minor matters, this simple procedure may be enough.

• Hair restoration. Yes, believe it or not, some people want hair especially on their head. The body’s natural aging process often causes hair loss. In women, a condition called androgenetic alopecia causes hair loss in about 40 percent of ladies after menopause. It’s nothing more than changing body hormones that stifle hair production. With Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Therapy, we can treat your scalp and convince it to start growing hair again.

Weight loss. We offer several options for weight loss. Again, this is just a function of growing older. Your body slows, your metabolism slows and shedding pounds becomes much harder. One of the top treatments we offer is Vitamin B12 injections. A dose of B12 pumps up your metabolism gives you increased energy and revitalizes you.

• You don’t really need a reason other than you want to. It’s your body. You’re in charge of it. Time and Mother Nature may try to make changes you don’t like, but with modern cosmetic procedures you can hold back the hands of time.

We, at the Cosmetic Rejuvenation Medical Center, offer a complete suite of services for ladies who want to look their best. Call us today!

Reducing and Removing Acne Scars

Reducing and Removing Acne Scars

Adolescence was hard enough. Carrying reminders of that for the rest of your life is not something you should have to do.

At the Cosmetic Rejuvenation Medical Center, we are using a cutting edge treatment for acne, eczema, and signs of aging like wrinkles, dry skin, and discoloration – Blue and Red Light treatment.

Yes, we admit this sounds odd but it really works. In studies from the United Kingdom, this kind of light treatment shows amazing results.

Why does it work? Science believes the lights kill the bacteria which cause acne and other similar problems without affecting the skin. When blue light reaches the sebaceous (oil) glands in the skin, it can help excite porphyrins, which are compounds inside acne bacteria. When activated by light, these porphyrins kill the bacteria from the inside out. This sets the Blue and Red light treatment apart from other procedures which actually affect the skin, like a chemical peel.

Light therapy for acne treatment works for the great majority of people. For a small minority of those who suffer, it doesn’t work or shows very little positive results. Because of this, it’s best to consult with experts before deciding on this kind of treatment.

This particular kind of light therapy is new. But the idea of using light to treat other problems is long established in medical science. For instance, ultraviolet light has long been known as an effective treatment for psoriasis.

Side effects are minimal. Very rarely people who are unusually sensitive to UV light will have some redness or irritation. This is less than a mild sunburn and goes away pretty quickly.

Because the treatment is done in moderated amounts and carefully observed, the chance of skin issues is extremely small. Available research shows this is safer than tanning beds or laying in the sun for long periods of time.

Zara Asks, “How Are You Sticking To Your New Year Resolution(s)?”

Zara Asks, “How Are You Sticking To Your New Year Resolution(s)?”

A majority of us did it.  We rang in 2015 with full enthusiasm towards new weight loss and fitness goals. For those of you who stuck to your goals but the fat is still “sticking” — I wrote today’s post for you.

Especially in sunny Los Angeles, where the average year round 75 degree weather doesn’t allow us to hide behind cold weather coats and bundles, CoolSculpting has become one of our top procedures at CRMCLaser.

While I still promote an overall healthy lifestyle for all of you, I wanted to share how CRMCLaser can help get rid of those stubborn bulges or problem areas that continue to bother you – no matter how clean you eat or how often you workout.

Some common questions I receive from patients:

How much weight will I lose?

One misconception is that losing weight and actual reduction of fat are the same.  Are you surprised to know they are not?  When you lose weight, you are only reducing the size of fat cells and when you gain weight, you are increasing the size.  CoolSculpting does not shrink the fat cells — CoolSculpting eliminates the fat cells, for good.  Your clothes will fit better and the fat is actually gone. Win, Win.

How does it work?

FDA-cleared, the procedure uses technology to control the cooling settings that freezes and gets rid of unwanted fat cells without surgery or recovery time.  CoolSculpting takes approximately 60 minutes and prime results are seen about 90 days after the procedure.  There is no better time to start the procedure then now to get ready for Spring and swimwear!

Does it hurt?

While pain tolerance varies per patient, you can expect to complete the procedure in one hour with minimal discomfort.  Our team is always nearby to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible. Most of our busy patients are often seen multi-tasking with their iPads/iPhones during the procedure.  Unlike invasive liposuction surgery, the treatment is designed to remove fat with no downtime.  There can be minimal bruising and minimal discomfort for a few days after the procedure.

Here are some of our happy patients who experienced CoolSculpting at our location:

The Perfect Pout: Countdown to Valentine’s Day

The Perfect Pout: Countdown to Valentine’s Day

Hello CRMCLaser Guests,

My name is Zara and on behalf of CRMCLaser, I am thrilled to launch our new blog where I will be sharing the behind the scenes work of our MedSpa as well as posting skincare tips and commonly asked questions that I hope will help you in your beauty and skin goals too!

As Valentine’s Day is approaching, many are beginning to ask about the process behind getting that “perfect pout.”  Our CRMCLaser team performs this procedure on a daily basis and typically we use 1-2 syringes of Juvederm for immediate results. You can expect your new — Valentine’s Day Ready — lips to last up to 6 months with minimal recovery time of just a few days.

Below are actual patient results from a few of my clients here at CRMCLaser. Please call our office (323) 650 9949 for current pricing.  Thank you for visiting our blog and I look forward to sharing more!
