Summer snuck up on all of us this year, but now that it’s safe and sunny outside, it’s time to don your best swimsuit and flaunt your dream summer body! Or at least it could be with help from Aristocrat. We’ve got you covered with ways for you to feel comfortable in your skin whether you’re a man or woman! Let’s dive into some great body treatments to get your summer in New York City off and running!
Skin Tightening for Women
Our skin gradually shows signs of aging as we get older. Wrinkles, freckles, age spots, loose, sagging, pigmented skin, and other cosmetic flaws show up one by one until you hardly recognize the person staring back at you in the mirror. Aristocrat Plastic Surgery is one of the few New York plastic surgery practices that offers numerous skin tightening treatments to help you look your best for summer and year-round! Here are some great choices:
BBL Laser Skin Tightening from Sciton
BBL is an advanced technology for laser skin tightening. BBL stands for “Broadband Light”, a cutting-edge development in laser treatments that can achieve non-surgical skin tightening of large areas with no downtime. The pulsed light of the device pushes heat deep into the skin while cooling its surface. The heat causes the skin cells to contract and tighten. The treatment also promotes the production of collagen, so the results continue to improve for up to four months.
BBL is great for any area with loosened skin, including the face, jowls, neck, stomach, and thighs. Depending on the treated area, you will need two to four treatments spaced two to four weeks apart, with final results visible in two to six months. Individual results will vary.
Fractora Fractional Technology and BodyTite Pro RFAL
are two innovative skin-firming and fat-removing procedures developed by InMode. Both of these procedures are minimally invasive and neither requires lengthy recovery time. They provide a dramatic, visible lift wherever they’re applied, improve the condition of the skin, and contour the body—all without surgery.
Fractora and BodyTite are two separate procedures, but many of Aristocrat’s patients in Long Island and Manhattan prefer to use them in succession as Fractora Fractional Technology removes superficial signs of aging (like age spots and fine lines), while BodyTite takes care of fatty deposits and deeper structural problems.
Cellulite Treatment for Women
Cellulite—that lumpy, dimpled skin you may find on the breasts, lower abdomen, upper arms, thighs, and buttocks can make the skin look bumpy and rumpled. Fat cells that accumulate and push against the skin create an uneven surface seen as cellulite. While hormonal factors are involved in the development of cellulite, it’s another sign of aging as the skin becomes less elastic. Everyone can develop cellulite, however excess weight gain can make cellulite stand out more. Here are some treatment options for cellulite that we offer at Aristocrat’s Manhattan and Long Island offices:
SmoothShapes Cellulite Treatment
is designed to specifically target the underlying causes of cellulite, as well as its physical manifestations. The SmoothShapes system uses a technology known as Photomology, which is FDA-cleared to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It’s the ultimate way to improve the quality of your skin without surgery!
Cellulaze by Cynosure
is a revolutionary cellulite treatment approved by the FDA to reduce cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. It’s the only minimally invasive laser procedure designed to treat the very structure of cellulite beneath the skin, which makes it very different from other treatments that deal with the problem only superficially. Cellulaze delivers long-term results after only one short treatment. Individual results may vary.
is a revolutionary, non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat which is then removed naturally from the body. Stubborn fat bulges that remain even after proper exercise and dieting can benefit from CoolSculpting. The FDA-approved treatment requires no needles, no special diets, no supplements, no incisions, and no downtime.
QWO: Cellulite Injectable
is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. The innovative filler is formulated with collagenase enzymes that target the connective tissue bands beneath the patient’s skin. The enzymes work to release the rigid bands and unbound the skin to allow the fat cells to redistribute. QWO also helps to stimulate new collagen production, which is the main structural protein found in the connective tissue of the skin.
Fat Reduction and Body Contouring for Women
Two sure ways to get your body beach-ready and show-off sexy is with fat reduction and body contouring treatments that give you a figure you’ll be proud to flaunt around New York!
is the first FDA-approved, non-invasive body sculpting treatment that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle mass. During the treatment, Emsculpt Neo’s applicator emits radiofrequency and high-intensity electromagnetic energies. The radiofrequency energy increases the temperature of the treated area, which causes apoptosis, meaning that fat cells are being permanently damaged and removed from the body. Electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy contracts the muscle fibers. As a result, muscles grow, become thicker and stronger, and the treated area begins to look more toned and fit.
Upper and Lower Body Lifts
are body-contouring plastic surgery procedures developed to address the aesthetic concerns of women who have lost large amounts of weight, through dieting or with the help of bariatric weight loss surgery. What makes body-contouring surgery different from procedures like tummy tucks and breast lifts is that the amount of skin removed is greater and the procedures cover more than one area of the body. Upper body lifts have the main function of removing excess skin that’s usually a result of extreme weight loss to add contour to the upper body. Note that this in itself is not a weight loss procedure; its purpose is to re-contour the body following weight loss.
Lower body lifts include the removal of excess skin and fat from the hips, outer thighs, and buttocks. These procedures tighten loose, sagging skin and smooth out fatty folds to restore youthful skin tone and define the contours of the body. Although a tummy tuck or liposuction reduces fatty tissues in various parts of the body, these procedures are not ideal for targeting problem areas that are circular in nature. A lower body lift is a more extensive procedure that covers wider areas of the lower body.
Treatment Options for Men
For guys who want to look their best during the warm weather season in New York City, there are plenty of treatments available to get your summer body on that won’t eat up a lot of time and can get results fast. No matter if you’re interested in body contouring, removing unsightly hair, reducing how much you sweat, and more, there’s a treatment that’s right for you. Let’s look at some self-improvement and self-care treatments that can help the men in our lives look and feel their best:
is also an appropriate treatment for male patients, as detailed in the women’s treatment options. It’s the first FDA-approved, non-invasive body sculpting treatment that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle mass. Through Emsculpt, you can build up muscle and reduce fat, all without surgery and without having to go to the gym!
Emsculpt generates high-intensity muscle contractions that give your muscles a workout without any effort on your part. A 30-minute treatment is like getting thousands of sit-ups or crunches. So an Emsculpt treatment not only builds up your muscle, but also sends signals to surrounding fat tissue to start breaking down for energy.
You’ll start to see results within a few days of an Emsculpt treatment, whereas it might take months to see results from traditional exercise. Emsculpt treatments are given over the course of several weeks, after which time you’ll notice more toning and tightening of the area. Where fat reduction treatments just eliminate fat, Emsculpt actually builds muscle. Emsculpt is good for men who only have a moderate amount of weight they want to lose and are primarily concerned with building or toning muscle.
Botox For Sweat Relief
is not only good for the removal of wrinkles, but also good for reducing sweating! Many men suffer from overactive sweat glands, which can be an embarrassing and frustrating condition. Botox can be used to shut down sweat glands to keep you cooler and dryer.
When Botox is injected into the armpits where excessive sweating occurs, it blocks the nerves that are causing the issue. No significant side effects are generally experienced except for some minor discomfort, itching, or injection-site irritation. Within a couple of days, the conditions should subside.
You’ll need to repeat the Botox treatments between 4 and 14 months after your first treatment. The injections aren’t permanent, and they eventually wear off. For palm-sweating, the Botox is a little less effective, but it does work there as well. Its immediate effectiveness makes it a good solution if you hate having wet palms when you give a handshake to someone!
Botox For Wrinkle Relief
is for men who struggle with facial wrinkles. When the Botox bacterium, Clostridium botulinum, is injected into the muscles that lead to deep wrinkles between your eyebrows and other areas on the face, the signals from the nerves to these muscles are blocked. This means they can’t contract, which allows the muscles to soften and relax. Botox is effective on forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. It can’t help wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity.
There are few risks associated with Botox, and it’s considered a minimally invasive treatment. Your results should last between four and six months, after which repeat applications will be needed to maintain results. Over time, you’ll see how wrinkles appear less severe as they’re trained to relax, which could mean you’ll need fewer treatments to maintain your youthful look!
Laser Hair Removal
can permanently remove unwanted hair in places that you don’t want it to grow. The process burns the follicle of the hair, which cuts it off from growing. So if you’re tired of shaving and plucking areas like the neck, eyebrows, back, etc., this might be the right option for you. The process works by using a laser to target the melanin found within the hair shaft itself. This heats up the hair, damaging the surrounding follicle. The damaged follicle can no longer sprout new hair.
The treatment is not always 100% effective, so you might need several procedures to ensure that the hair doesn’t grow back. There can be some discomfort you’ll experience with the process, but it won’t be severe. Laser hair removal can be performed on any hair, including in sensitive areas, and you can use numbing creams to reduce discomfort.
As men age, fat deposits can tend to build up in the abdomen, and fat in the chest and love handles can develop. Even if you’re at a healthy weight, unwanted fat can build up in these areas. As many women do, men can turn to liposuction to remove fat and contour the body.
Liposuction is a common cosmetic procedure that breaks up and removes fat using a cannula inserted under the skin, which is removed using a high-pressure vacuum. Liposuction is the most common cosmetic procedure in the U.S., with over 300,000 procedures performed each year.
Men who want to undergo liposuction should have stable body weight with undesirable fat deposits in specific areas of the body. Liposuction should be considered as a means to sculpt the body, not a weight loss solution.
Gynecomastia Corrective Surgery
is for the many men who struggle with the condition that produces over-developed or enlarged breasts. This occurs when the hormones get out of balance, or a man is overweight. It can be an emotionally difficult situation for a man and change the quality of life by causing avoidance of activities that can draw attention to the condition, like going to the beach or the pool.
Gynecomastia corrective surgery works by cutting out the excess glandular tissue and applying ultrasonic liposuction. The primary goal is to add more contour to the chest to improve its look.
A candidate should visit their doctor to first make sure that there isn’t a medical condition that’s causing the change in breasts. Undergoing gynecomastia surgery is a life-changing procedure that benefits millions of men.
is a common procedure to treat drooping eyelids that make a man look older than he is. Drooping eyelids can occur as we age and the eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them start to weaken. This can cause excessive fat to build up under the eyelids and above the eye.
Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure that involves cutting the fold of the eyelid to remove excess skin, muscle, and fat, then closing the cut. Scarring is well hidden because the cut is done on the fold or directly under the lashes on the lower eyelid. A blepharoplasty procedure takes about two hours and recovery time about one week.
