Non-Invasive Cosmetic Treatments for Neck Area to Reduce Fat, Tighten Skin & Stop Snoring: Dr Lycka & Dr Nowak

LogoSuffering from snoring, or suffering a partner who suffers from snoring, is no fun whatsoever. However, there is now a non-invasive treatment available which uses lasers to help reduce a person's snoring. This is just one treatment highlighted in a series of new treatments in what Dr Eugene Nowak dubs 'the year of the neck.' Other treatments are focussed on removing fat from the double chin area, as well as tightening skin.

Fat Melting, Cellulite Improvement & Skin Tightening: Exciting Results Discussed by Dr Lycka & Dr Downie

LogoThree popular wishes are to be able to easily get rid of unwanted body fat, improve the look and feel of the dreaded cellulite, and to tighten up wrinkly, sagging skin. This universal demand has resulted in many new and interesting non-invasive and minimally invasive treatment options being developed. However, it can be difficult for prospective patients, and even medical professionals, to keep up with what is available, where on the body they can be used, who they are suitable for, and what level of results they create.

Breast Implant Health Problems Highlighted by Dr Lycka & Dr Kolb

LogoBreast implants are still very popular, and even though they are the best they have ever been, they can still cause serious health problems – and not just from leaking silicone. Leaking silicone can cause chemical toxicity which certain women cannot process and so they become ill. Certain women with silicone implants and a problem with yeast infection can also suffer from biotoxicity that their body cannot deal with, and again, they become very ill. Saline implants can also cause problems in certain women who are exposed to a moldy environment. The mold finds its way to the saline implants and infects them, once again this process can cause serious health problems in some women.

Stress and How It Affects Health, Hair & Skin – Discussed by Dr Lycka & Dr Ablon

LogoStress is an unwelcome part of modern life, and has been found to cause several health problems, and many of these are widely known about.

Latest Anti-Ageing Treatments: Peels, Lasers & Niacinamide – Reviewed by Dr Lycka & Dr Jaliman

LogoAnti-ageing treatments are developed and launched with increasing frequency, and it is a challenge for patients (and even doctors) to keep up with the latest trends. And of course not every doctor offers every treatment and not every patient is an ideal candidate for every treatment, procedure or product. This is where a weekly show such as Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today plays an important role in sharing information and helping to educate patients and medical professionals.

Latest Treatment Options to Get Rid of a Double Chin & Saggy Neck Reviewed by Dr Lycka & Dr Schlessinger

LogoFor many years, people have wanted to get rid of a double chin – that unwanted fat around the chin and neck area – but there were not many treatment options available, and those that were available were not popular for some reason. And that was the same situation for people with the opposite problem – too much loose skin on their neck, which is unflatteringly called a 'turkey neck'. However, in the last year all that has changed, as a new 'fat busting' treatment called Kybella has captured the imagination of patients, and triggered a boost in treatment options being developed to help remove fat and tighten skin in the previously under-served chin & neck area.

Exciting New Uses for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in Cosmetic Surgery Reviewed by Dr Lycka & Dr Crutchfield

LogoAesthetic treatments based around Platelet Rich Plasma continue to be developed. PRP has been used in sports medicine and other surgical specialties for many years, but it has only been the last 5 years or so that it has been considered within cosmetic surgery procedures. There are many benefits to patients from treatments based around PRP. Importantly, it is natural and safe. Products from a patient's own blood are extracted, activated and then re-injected into a specific area of their body to promote healing, and particularly rejuvenation & regeneration.

Doctors for the Practice of Safe & Ethical Aesthetic Medicine – Discussed by Dr Lycka & Dr Crutchfield

LogoDoctors For The Practice Of Safe & Ethical Aesthetic Medicine, aka DPSEAM, is a society formed by leading cosmetic doctors. It helps patients find doctors who focus on providing a high level of safety and ethical practices. It was formed as a response to the frustration felt by cosmetic doctors towards the seemingly endless stream of problems caused by unethical, unscrupulous and often ill-trained practitioners and facilities providing popular cosmetic procedures purely for profit without thought or care for the patients.

BB Creams, CC Creams & DD Creams Explained by Dr Lycka & Dr Papantoniou

LogoBB creams, CC creams & DD creams are increasingly popular multi-purpose facial skin creams. They are best described as a product created at the point where skin care and make-up meet. And they appear to provide time-saving & simplicity when it comes to daily skin care and makeup routines. It can, however, be rather overwhelming for a customer standing at a cosmetics counter, or browsing online, to work out what exactly these creams are, how they work and which are suitable for their specific skin needs. Finding accurate and impartial information about them is difficult.

Practical Advice on Choosing a Cosmetic Doctor: Dr Lycka & Dr Kress

LogoChoosing a cosmetic doctor is not, by any means, an easy thing to do. In fact, it can be rather overwhelming for a prospective cosmetic surgery patient to even know where to start. Do they start with websites, social media ads, billboards, or where? The practical advice is not to start with any of those things, but instead start by checking out appropriate board certifications, other relevant credentials, and local regulatory authorities. Then there is the initial consultation to prepare for. It might seem like a lot of hard work and inconvenience, but a poor choice of cosmetic doctor will create poor levels of results, unexpected expense, and often injury & tissue damage that cannot be repaired.
