The Best Christmas Gift of 2020: Better Sex with Viveve!

The Most Intimate Christmas Gift: Better Sex with Vaginal Rejuvenation

Christmas shopping in 2020 is challenging during social distancing – to say the least! What if we told you we had the perfect gift that keeps on giving, is guaranteed to “fit” and that can be purchased online with a few clicks? Why not give your partner AND yourself the gift of better sex and improved intimacy this holiday season with a  Gift Certificate for vaginal rejuvenation at AMAE in the Detroit area?

Improve Sexual Intimacy with Vaginal Rejuvenation

Sexual intimacy is an important part of any couple’s relationship. And, during 2020, while many couples are stuck at home together during the pandemic, an active and satisfying sex life has become even more important to couple. revolutionary new Viveve non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation may be just what you both need to reinvigorate your love life.

What Is Vaginal Rejuvenation?

In the early days of romance or marriage, the couple’s sexual relationship is often the focal point of their time together. But as responsibilities such as children, careers, and mortgages take center stage, sexual relations can often get shifted to the back burner. Unfortunately, once the kids are older, careers are established, and a couple finally has more time for one another again, physiological changes in a woman’s body can make sexual intimacy less than satisfying for both partners. Even worse, in many cases, sexual intercourse actual becomes painful for the woman.

Childbirth, aging and post-menopausal hormone decrease all take their toll on the vagina. The vaginal lining can become looser, lax (lacking in tone), dry, and less sensitive. This results in painful sex for the woman and less sensation and less satisfaction for both partners.

But the fantastic news is that a one-time, non-surgical Viveve vaginal rejuvenation treatment can “turn back the clock” on female intimacy problems. Radiofrequency “vaginal rejuvenation” restores tightness, elasticity, lubrication and sensation to the vagina – in just one treatment, without surgery and without hormones.

Radiofrequency stimulates the vaginal tissue to produce more collagen, and promotes the regeneration of vaginal cells. This helps restore and rejuvenate the vagina to a more youthful state. The vaginal becomes tighter, more toned and more lubricated – improving intimacy for the woman and her partner.

Cost of Vaginal Rejuvenation in Detroit

So what’s the catch? There really isn’t one! There are no side effects, no downtime and no complications from this safe and natural treatment. The only issue, for some women, is the “price tag” – since insurance does not currently cover vaginal rejuvenation. And, as we all know, many women are notorious for not spending money on themselves.

But what better gift can you give her (and you) this holiday season, than a  Gift Certificate for better sexual health and improved intimacy?

The average middle-class married couple spends more than $1000 every year on Christmas gifts alone! Couples also typically invest this much in a good mattress set. And a new car payment alone can run from $2000 to $4000 or more per year. Shouldn’t your intimacy as a couple be worth a small investment as well?

Women: Treat yourselves to more comfortable and satisfying sex – while giving the man you love the holiday gift of more frequent and pleasurable sexual intimacy! There is still time to schedule Vivevev vaginal rejuvenation before Christmas. But hurry! Time is running out.

Men: You can purchase a  Gift Certificate at our Detroit area medical office for the cost of vaginal rejuvenation treatment. You will be giving your wife or partner the gift of heightened sexual sensation and pain-free sex – while also giving yourself the present of more satisfying sex with the woman you love.

4 Cosmetic Procedure Christmas Gifts for Him

4 Cosmetic Procedure Christmas Gifts for Him

2020 … what a year! Now it’s time to try and celebrate the holidays and find those perfect gifts – while still social distancing! What if there were a perfect gift, guaranteed to “fit”, that you could buy online – without having to leave the house? The answer is: a Plastic Surgery or Body Sculpting Gift Certificate that you can buy online, print at home, and let’s the recipient choose exactly what they want!

If the man in your life is like most of us, he’s had an extremely stressful year. And if he’s a “typical guy” he’s probably also extremely hard to shop for. Chances are he usually buys himself what he wants and needs throughout the year. So coming up with gift ideas that are a surprise – and is something your husband or boyfriend really wants – can be a difficult task! But this year, we’ve got you covered with some suggestions for the perfect Christmas gift that keeps on giving all year round! Even better, every gift on this list will also make YOU happy, too. And there’s no size or color to pick out, and you don’t even have to go to a crowded shopping mall!

You can give any one of the Christmas gifts on this list below with a Cosmetic Surgery Gift Certificate from our prestigious Detroit area plastic surgery office. Your husband, boyfriend, fiancé, father, brother or other special guy can even choose what service he would like – and he can use the gift certificate now, or wait until later in 2021.

1. Give Him CoolSculpting for Christmas

Does he complain about his midsection, gripe about his love handles, or walk around trying to suck in his gut when he’s out in public? What if you could give the guy in your life the body he’s always wanted (or the body he used to have) for Christmas? And we are NOT talking about buying him a new piece of exercise equipment or another gym membership!

We offer several body enhancement and fat loss treatments at our Detroit area cosmetic surgery office that take away his fat in problem areas – to reveal those abs! Our most popular is non-invasive CoolSculpting – which offers non-surgical fat loss – with no downtime!

CoolSculpting is a completely non-invasive fat-removal procedure that removes up to 24% of fat in a treated area. A handheld applicator applies cold temperatures to the unwanted fat. This applicator “freezes” or “crystalizes” the fat cells, and the body then naturally eliminates them. CoolSculpting can remove fat and inches from the waist, abs, and “love handles” – and almost anywhere else on the body, even a “double chin”.

A Gift Certificate for CoolSculpting can help him get rid of the stubborn fat pockets she hates, and reveal the abs he can be proud of – all with no exercise and no downtime!

2. Give Him Liposuction for Christmas

Want to give him the “abs” he’s always wanted for Christmas? Now you can!

Another fat loss procedure most guys would love to find “under the Christmas tree” is a Gift Certificate for tumescent liposuction. Lipo can remove fat from almost any area of the body, including the belly and flanks, as well as the buttocks, thighs, back and arms.

Liposuction is especially ideal for stubborn pockets of fat around a man’s middle that don’t respond to exercise or dieting. Usually this type of fat is hereditary to some degree, and the only way to permanently remove it is with liposuction or CoolSculpting.

Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that requires only local anesthetic, and the results are almost immediate. So he can get the liposuction in January and be swimsuit-ready for a February beach vacation or a Detroit area “stay-cation”.

Can’t decide between liposuction and CoolSculpting? No problem! A Gift Certificate from our Detroit area cosmetic surgery office enables your guy to choose the procedure HE wants.

3. Give Yourself a Breast Augmentation for Christmas … that He’ll Love, too!

If you really want to GO BIG for Christmas, then consider scheduling your OWN breast augmentation at our Detroit area Medical Office and Med Spa! This gift to YOURSELF is also one that the man in your life will enjoy for years to come.

We know that he loves you just the way you are! But if you are a bit dissatisfied with (or self conscious about) the size, shape or placement of your breasts, breast enhancement surgery can give you the gorgeous bustline you’ve always wanted.

You’ll look better in clothes – AND in the bedroom – with breast implants that help you love the way you look. And we promise, HE will love the way you look too!

4. Give Him (and You) Better Sex with Vaginal Rejuvenation

Give your partner AND YOURSELF the gift of better sex and improved intimacy this holiday season with a vaginal rejuvenation treatment.

Sadly, childbirth, aging and post-menopausal hormone decrease all take their toll on a woman’s vagina. The vaginal lining can become looser, lax (lacking in tone), dry, and less sensitive. This results in painful sex for the woman and less sensation and less satisfaction for both partners.

But the fantastic news is that a one-time, non-surgical vaginal treatment can “turn back the clock” on female intimacy problems. Radiofrequency “vaginal rejuvenation” restore tightness, elasticity, lubrication and sensation to the vagina – in just one treatment, without surgery and without hormones!

Wouldn’t YOU like to get (and give) better sex for Christmas? The best news is that there is no downtime – and results begin to take effect almost immediately! So there’s still time to schedule a treatment before Christmas! Now that’s a gift he’s sure to love!

Detroit Area Cosmetic Surgery Gift Certificates

How to Get Thin by Christmas

How to Get Thin by Christmas – 

Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, and Christmas & Chanukah are only a couple months away. And many people in the greater Detroit area are looking for a way to “get thin quick” or “lose fat fast.” Even though social gatherings will be smaller this year – we still want to look our best when we attend those family gatherings and Christmas parties – whether they are in person or via Zoom!

Around the holidays our office usually receives many inquiries about how long liposuction or CoolSculpting takes to get results. Additionally, this year, many of us have gained 5 or ten extra pounds during the quarantine and working from home due to less activity, more snacking and the stress of the pandemic!

Dr. Ali is a Detroit area board certified plastic surgeon who has helped hundreds of women and men in the greater Detroit area get the body they want. He offers a wide variety of procedures to remove fat and inches from almost every area of the body, including: liposuction, CoolSculpting, tummy tucks and more. In this article we discuss the time-frames of the most popular body sculpting procedures.

How Long Do Liposuction Results Take?

Liposuction shows results the “fastest” of the most common body sculpting procedures.

Tumescent liposuction is the newest generation liposuction procedures, which uses a “micro-cannula” (tiny tube) to suck out the fat. Tumescent liposuction only involves one procedure and significantly less swelling and “downtime” than older liposuction techniques.

As the swelling goes down (after the first few days up to about 4 to 6 weeks) the liposuction results become visible. Because the fat has been surgically “sucked out” and does not have to be eliminated by the body, the results are immediate – though only visible post-swelling.

Your recovery period will depend on how extensive the procedure was, how much fat was removed, your age, your general health, etc. But in most cases the swelling will subside, and substantial results will be visible in 4 to 6 weeks.

So, if you are hoping for results before Christmas, November is the time to book your liposuction appointment!!

How Long Do CoolSculpting Results Take?

Like liposuction, CoolSculpting can remove stubborn areas of fat that resist diet and exercise – but it is not a weight loss tool.

CoolSculpting is non-surgical and non-invasive – giving it the advantage of having virtually no “downtime” and no period of recovery. However, CoolSculpting, involves multiple treatments.

Patients typically begin to see results within 4-5 weeks, although it may take 3 to 6 months to deliver complete and final results.

So, while CoolSculpting is less invasive, less uncomfortable, and has less downtime, seeing results takes more treatments – and the results take much longer to be visible.

If you book a CoolSculpting appointment in November, you will likely see some – but not complete – results by Christmas.

How Long Do Tummy Tuck Results Take?

A tummy tuck (also called abdominoplasty) is a more invasive procedure than liposuction or CoolSculpting. A tummy tuck tightens “flabby” skin and loose muscle, while liposuction or CoolSculpting only remove excess fat.

Immediately following your tummy tuck, loose, sagging skin will be gone – but some swelling will continue. Gradually the swelling decreases over a period of several weeks, revealing the firm, tight skin and muscles.

A tummy tuck typically requires general anesthesia. An incision is made across the lower in order to remove excess abdominal skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. This does result in a longer recovery time and more intense discomfort.

Scheduling a tummy tuck in November will reveal a tighter abdomen by Christmas.  But, realistically, because it is actual surgery, it will be after the holidays before complete results of your tummy tuck will be visible. Additionally, if you elect to have a tummy tuck before the holidays – care must be taken not to “overdo it” during your recovery period.

Best Detroit Area Liposuction Surgeon

Dr. Ali has helped hundreds of women and men across the greater Detroit area get the body they want with liposuction, CoolSculpting, tummy tucks, and other non-invasive, minimally-invasive and surgical procedures. He will be happy to offer you a consultation to help you understand your options and results time-frame, so you can choose the best procedure for your goals.

And remember, liposuction financing options are also available!

Hormone Replacement for Menopause

Hormone Replacement Helps Treat Symptoms of Menopause – 

Menopause is the end of a woman’s reproductive cycle. The average age for the onset of menopause is 51. But menopause can actually occur as early as the late 30’s – or as late as the early 6os. Leading up to menopause, a woman’s ovaries begin producing fewer and fewer hormones.

Hormones regulate virtually every aspect of our bodies, from metabolism and weigh gain, to skin health, sleep patterns and sex drive. So, the decreased hormones of menopause can cause a wide variety of changes or symptoms in a woman’s body.

Symptoms and side effects of menopausal hormone decline can include: hot flashes, sleep disruption, low libido, vaginal pain and dryness, urinary incontinence, weight gain, mood swings, bone density loss (osteoporosis), and more. In short, menopause can be very unpleasant.

But, the good news is that replacing declining hormones during menopause with bioidentical hormone replacement pellets can offer lasting relief from these difficult and often painful symptoms.

Hormone Replacement Reduces Menopause Symptoms

Hormone replacement therapy is considered the most effective treatment for symptoms of estrogen decline, such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and pain or discomfort during intercourse.

Doctors also generally recommend low dose estrogen replacement for women who have had a hysterectomy, or a a bilateral oophorectomy (removal of the uterus and ovaries). Estrogen comes in different forms. The daily pill and patch are the most popular, but the hormone also is available in a vaginal ring, gel, or spray.

The estrogen decline or imbalance of menopause is also associated with osteoporosis, breast cancer, and heart disease. But research indicates that hormone replacement offers improved bone strength, heart and artery protection, and even helps guard against cognitive decline during aging, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Why You Should Use Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement

Remaining healthy well after menopause depends on many factors including lifestyle and heredity. But, just as we supplement the body with vitamins and minerals to stay healthy, it also makes sense to replenish the necessary hormones that are missing from the body.

And, the best, most natural method of replacing deficient hormones is with Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) Pellets.

A single pellet implant in our office steadily and and consistently releases low doses of hormones for 3 to 6 months. And, unlike synthetic hormones that are made in a lab, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) pellets consist of hormones extracted from 100% natural sources.  These bioidentical hormones replicate the exact molecular structure of the human body’s naturally produced hormones.

And, unlike hormone pills that put you on a daily roller coaster of hormone ups and downs, time-released pellets deliver hormones the way your body does – gradually and consistently over time from within the body. Additionally, unlike oral pills, messy creams and unsightly patches, there are no pills to remember daily, and no messy creams or ugly patches to remember to apply.

Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Safe for Menopause?

The North American Menopause Society, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, and The Endocrine Society have all taken the position that most healthy women can use hormone therapy for relief of their menopause symptoms.

Previously there were concerns that taking estrogen alone increased a woman’s risk for uterine cancer. However, taking progesterone hormones combined with estrogen greatly reduces this risk. This is important because, according to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, 1 in 3 women over the age of 50 years old will experience a broken bone due to osteoporosis in their lifetime. Other estimates put the risk as high as 1 on 2, or 50% of all women over 50.

So, the importance of reversing the risk of an osteoporosis, as well as heart disease, Alzheimer’s and other life-threatening conditions cannot be understated.

Hormone Replacement Therapy for Menopause – Birmingham, MI

Hormone replacement therapy has been proven effective for decades for reducing the symptoms of menopause like painful sex, mood swings and hot flashes. BHRT pellets also protect post- menopausal women from the dangers of fractured bones, heart disease and cognitive decline.

If you and your doctor believe hormone replacement therapy is the right treatment for you, BHRT pellets offer the safest, most consistent, most effective and easiest to use form of hormone replacement.

How to Look Thinner on Zoom (Part 1)

8 Ways to Look Thinner on Zoom (Part 1) – 

There have been many surprising changes to our lifestyles during the pandemic. One of these is that many of us our finding ourselves “on camera” and being videoed for the first time in our life. And, whether we are participants or presenters in Zoom meetings, we are all becoming acutely aware that the old adage is true: “the camera adds ten pounds.”

And while some Zoom meeting just involve a few close colleagues, others are taped for broadcast, watching and re-watching company-wide. Couple this with the fact that many of us have gained a few (or fifteen) extra pounds from the more sedentary stay-at-home lifestyle of the quarantine – and both women and men are becoming increasingly concerned about looking chubby on camera.

The good news is that there are both “camera tricks” and aesthetic treatments that can make you appear slimmer on camera (and off!). In addition to using lighting, highlighting and camera angles to your advantage, Dr. Ali offers the fastest and safest aesthetic procedures for losing the “quarantine fifteen” so you look more like a celebrity – and less like a couch potato on camera.

Camera Tricks to Look Thinner in Zoom Meetings

Let’s first start with some easy “basics” here, to looking thinner on Zoom and other video platforms.

#1. Camera Placement: Make sure your camera is at eye level to look thinner.

If the camera is below you, and angled up, everyone is getting a birds-eye view of the underside of your chin. And, unless you’re a fit twenty-five year old (or George Clooney), looking up at the flesh beneath the chin is rarely a flattering angle.

#2. Body Placement: Sit at a slight angle to the camera to look thinner on Zoom.

Most people sit facing the camera directly…often leaning back slightly. This will make your face and body look wider and more square. Think “side-saddle” when sitting in your office chair, which places your body at a more slimming 45 degree angle to the camera.

And, leaning back accentuates both the belly and (double) chin. So, don’t forget to sit up straight! In addition to making you look more confident and professional, pressing the shoulders back will help elongate the neck and make the face look slimmer, too!

#3. Head Placement: Tilt the forehead slightly forward to look thinner on Zoom.

This is an old photographers’ “trick” that works equally well on Zoom and in videos, as it does in still photos. Tilting the forehead slightly forward will make the face look longer and less round. It also casts a shadow over the chin, concealing any excess fat below the jaw.

#4. Wear Dark, Fitted Clothing: Avoid vertical stripes, loud prints and baggy clothes to look thinner on Zoom.

In person, your colleagues can tell where your clothes end and you begin. But on a smaller video screen wide or loose clothes simply make your body look wide, too. Additionally, anything that draws the eye from side to side – like horizontal stripes – also makes you look bigger. And busy patterns and bright colors also draw the eye’s focus to the body.

#5. Contour with Make-Up or an Angled Beard: this reduces the chin’s appearance in women or men with “shadowing.”

For hundreds of years men have been hiding their double chins with a well-trimmed beard! The sharper the angles of the beard, the squarer the jaw will appear. Women can achieve a similar illusion of a slimmer face by creating subtle shadows around the jawline, along the sides of the face, and under the cheekbones with well-placed contouring. (see illustrations, below).

Aesthetic Treatments to Look Thinner on Zoom

These “tricks” can certainly help you look thinner when on camera. But the reality is, camera angles can only go so far to disguise unwanted fat on the face and body. Fortunately, there are three fast, affordable and non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures offered at AMAE Med Spa in the Detroit area that can actually permanently get rid of unwanted fat on the face and the body.

8 Ways to Look Thinner on Zoom (Part 2) – 

In Part 1 of this Article we revealed 5 camera “tricks” that can help you look thinner when on camera, whether in Zoom meetings, Facetiming or taking Selfies. But the reality is, camera angles can only go so far to disguise unwanted fat on the face and body. Fortunately, there are three fast, affordable and non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures offered at AMAE Med Spa in the Detroit area that can actually permanently get rid of unwanted fat on the face and the body.

With non-invasive CoolSculpting for body or double chin, Kybella double chin injections, and/or liposuction, you can permanently get rid of unwanted fat so that you look great on camera … and “IRL” when things get back to normal!

Aesthetic Treatments to Look Thinner on Zoom

#1. Kybella Double Chin Injections to Look Thinner on Zoom

Kybella eliminates a double chin through a series of injections under the jaw that “dissolve” the fat cells. The destroyed fat cells are then eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic processes.

Most Kybella patients see a 50 percent fat reduction after just two sessions, and a 70 percent reduction after four Kybella treatments – meaning your face can look 70% thinner in Zoom meetings with Kybella!

#2. CoolSculpting Fat Loss to Look Thinner on Zoom

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that literally freezes away unwanted fat almost anywhere on the body – including the chin, for which it was recently FDA approved.

Once the fat cells are frozen and destroyed, they are gradually expelled from the body through natural elimination processes and can never come back.

Because it takes a while for the body to absorb and eliminate the frozen fat cells, CoolSculpting results take longer than liposuction to be visible – with results beginning to appear 4 to 5 weeks after treatment, and 3 to 5 months to deliver final results.

#3. Liposuction to Look Thinner on Zoom (and “IRL”!)

Liposuction offers the largest amount of fat loss with the most rapidly visible results. Liposuction can be used as a body contouring technique – safely removing up to 11 pounds of unwanted fat. It is also an ideal tool for sculpting the face, neck and double chin.

Only local anesthetic is required for modern liposuction, which is less invasive. And, unlike CoolSculpting or Kybella, liposuction requires only one treatment, and the results are visible as soon as swelling subsides!

While there is some downtime after liposuction, many patients have found that it’s an ideal time to come in for lipo – since thy can work-from-home while they are recovering … and no one will even know they had anything done.

Aesthetic Treatments to Look Thinner on Zoom

It’s proven that the camera does add 10 pounds to a person’s appearance! And, in addition to being more aware of our appearance on camera thanks to increased Zoom and Facetime, many of us have packed on the “quarantine 15” due to more time snacking a home and less time being active. But whether your motivation to look thinner is Zoom meetings or “real life” board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali has the aesthetic fat loss treatments to make your face and body look thinner, younger and more well-proportioned.

Schedule a fat loss consultation with Dr. Ali, in person or via video chat, and see which fat loss treatments will make you look like a star every day!

Four Ways to Get Thinner Arms & Tighten Arm Skin

Four Ways to Get Thinner Arms & Tighten Arm Skin

Arm fat, as well as unsightly flabby skin that hangs down from the arms, can make a man or woman self-conscious about baring their arms in tank tops, bathing suits or sleeveless clothing.

Arm fat can be especially frustrating for women preparing for a big event – such as a wedding or other formal occasion! Because the latest fashions in wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and evening wear, are most often sleeveless, excess arm fat or skin can turn dress shopping from a joyous occasion to one of sadness and disappointment.

But that does NOT have to be the case. At AMAE in the Troy, MI area we offer several surgical as well as non-surgical / non-invasive treatments that can trim and tone arms.

Non-Surgical, Non-Invasive Arm Fat Treatment

At AMAE in the Troy, MI area we offer CoolSculpting to get rid of arm fat – the #1 non-invasive procedure in the world for permanently reducing arm fat!  CoolSculpting gets rid of arm fat painlessly and permanently – without surgery, diet or exercise.

A single CoolSculpting treatment will typically reduce the fat layer thickness in the arms by 20-25% in just a single treatment.  And, additional treatments will produce even more fat reduction in the upper arms.

Full results develop over time, as the body naturally eliminates the frozen fat cells – so schedule CoolSculpting three to four months before the big event to see complete arm fat reduction results by the big day!

Non-Surgical, Non-Invasive Arm Skin Tightening

While CoolSculpting has some mild, but not dramatic skin, tightening effects, we also offer state-of-the-art new Profound skin tightening. Profound can be used on its own to tighten lax, flabby arm skin – or in conjunction with CoolSculpting to reduce fat and tone loose skin on the arms.

In 2020 we AMAE in the Troy, MI area added the newly released Profound radiofrequency microneedling. Profound stimulates renewed production of collagen and elastin – the building blocks of tight, toned, elastic skin. Profound also rejuvenates the production of hyaluronic acid, another substance produced by the body to yield smoother, tighter skin.

Surgical Arm Fat Removal

For larger amounts of arm fat removal liposuction can be highly effective. Only minute, well concealed scars will be left that fade over time.

Liposuction immediately removes fat from the arms by sucking it out through a small straw-like cannula. After about 3 weeks, most of the swelling will have gone down leaving visible results. These results will continue to improve over the next 6 months or so.

There is down time of two or three days after liposuction – with a compression garment worn for 10 days or so, and limits on physical activity for a few weeks. So make sure to schedule your liposuction well in advance of any big event.

Surgical Arm Skin Tightening

People with decent skin elasticity may see their arms naturally “bounce back” and tighten after liposuction. Others with more skin laxity may need to tighten the remaining skin with Profound radiofrequency, discussed above. But patients with excessive amounts of loose, hanging or flabby skin may want to consider a surgical arm lift for optimal arm skin tightening and toning.

With new surgical techniques and technologies, arm lift surgery is now safer, easier, less invasive and more comfortable than ever. As a result, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that, over the last 10 years, the number of arm lift surgeries performed in the U.S. has increased by a whopping 4,378%!

Thanks to these advancements, arm lift surgery patients are able to enjoy better results than ever, with smaller less conspicuous scars and significantly less downtime.

During arm lift surgery, excess skin from the upper arm (sometimes known as a “bat wing”) is surgically removed, using incisions that are strategically placed to be less visible.  The remaining skin is then tightly pulled together and sutured – leaving trim, toned arms.

Downtime can range from 1 to 2 weeks, and strenuous activities must also be avoided for about 6 weeks after arm lift surgery. But patients universally agree that the longer recovery period is well worth it to achieve the most dramatically trimmed and tightened arms possible.

4 Reasons C02RE Laser is the Best Anti Aging Treatment

4 Reasons New C02RE Laser is the Best Anti Aging Treatment – 

Troy, MI area board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali offers the most advanced, state-of-the-art technologies in anti aging, skin resurfacing, and wrinkle and line reduction. The newest technology in our vast array of anti aging treatments is the state-of-the-art is the CO2RE fractional CO2 laser.

This revolutionary anti aging medical procedure offers several advantages over other, older and less sophisticated laser treatments. In this article Dr. Ali explains why the CO2RE laser is the superior choice for reducing the signs of aging and achieving younger looking skin.

#1. C02RE Anti Aging Treatment Stimulates Cellular Repair

New, state-of-the-art Co2re laser technology does not just remove the top layer of skin to reduce signs of aging – it actually delivers deep laser energy into the dermis to regenerate the production new, healthy skin cells.

Collagen and elastin are the protein building blocks that form the “scaffolding” of skin cells that keep the face firm and elastic and stop it from wrinkling and sagging. But as women and men age the body produces less collagen and elastin, so the skin begins to show signs of sun damage and aging.

The CO2RE laser is a state-of-the-art anti aging fractional CO2 laser treatment, now available in the Troy, MI area at AMAE Med Spa, that delivers fractional laser waves far below the surface of the skin. This re-activates the body’s collagen production and cell renewal processes – naturally repairing skin damaging, tightening & plumping skin, and “filling in” lines and wrinkles.

#2. C02RE Laser Anti Aging Treatment is Versatile

The CO2RE provides four different treatment modes, that can be customized for each patient – to effectively treat their unique skin issues and concerns.

The Co2Re Light mode provides superficial fractional ablative treatments – removing the dead skin from the top layer (epidermis) and increasing new cell production. The Mid mode penetrates more deeply for a stronger fractional ablative effect, producing additional new skin tissue below the surface.

The Co2Re Deep mode penetrates far into the dermis (lower layer of skin) for the deepest fractional ablative effect. While the Co2Re Fusion mode delivers a unique laser scan pattern that combines treatment depths in the epidermis and dermis simultaneously.

As a result of this versatile laser technology, the Co2Re anti aging laser can simultaneously treat:

  • Age spots | dark spots | sun spots | hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines | deep lines | wrinkles … even around the eyes and mouth
  • Hyperpigmentation | freckles | uneven skin tone
  • Leathery skin | rough skin texture
  • Loose, lax or sagging skin

#3. C02RE Laser Anti Aging Treatment is Precise

State-of-the-art CO2RE laser technology gives Dr. Ali strict control over the intensity, pattern, and depth of each treatment.  The CO2RE pinpoints specific places on your skin to treat, while leaving other healthy areas of skin alone.

This means that each treatment only targets the areas of concern, while leaving other areas of skin intact and untreated. This results in both a highly customized procedure without the collateral skin damage caused by other, less precise, lasers.

So it is far gentler and more effective than other laser ablation treatments that leave your skin completely raw and red.

#4. C02RE Laser Anti Aging Treatment is Faster

For most of skin concerns, patients only require one single CO2RE anti aging treatment. This is far more convenient than other laser anti aging treatments which may require 3 or more sessions.

Additionally, the total time it takes for patients to see results is much shorter than with any previous laser ablation technology, because there is less skin damage.
