Start Getting Ready for Summer!

Have your Zeltiq Coolsculpting in March to See Results Before the Summer Swim Season


By now, most of our patients have become familiar with the Coolsculpting by Zeltiq procedure. The Coolsculpting procedure reduces fat by cooling it. Ideal candidates for the Coolsculpting procedure have discrete and localized fat bulges on the abdomen, love handles, inner thighs, and back. Coolsculpting treatments result in noticeable and natural looking fat reduction in the treated areas. This in turn results in an improved and more attractive body contour.


Following a Coolsculpting procedure, it takes approximately three months for the final result to become visible. For this reason, any of our patients who wish to reduce their fat bulges before the summer (without having surgery or liposuction) should have their Zeltiq procedures performed soon. That way, the results will be visible by the time we head into the summer months.


We invite any of our patients who may be interested in having a Coolsculpting procedure to call our office at 310-829-9396 and make an appointment for a Zeltiq consultation. Although the regular price of Zeltiq Coolsculpting is $750 per area, we will continue to honor our discounted Zeltiq price of $650 per area until April 30, 2011.

Take Advantage of $100 Savings on Juvederm With the Duet Dividends Program

For a limited period of time and while supplies last, our Botox patients can receive a $100 discount on their Juvederm treatments when the Botox and Juvederm treatments are done during the same appointment. Any of our Botox patients can take advantage of this opportunity, whether they have had Juvederm in the past or not.


Juvederm is an FDA approved dermal filling agent that is used for the correction of facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm is a technologically advanced formulation of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin of every human being. It is very safe and effective in patients of all skin types and all skin colors. Virtually everyone who has facial wrinkles or folds in need of correction will benefit from Juvederm. The most common areas treated are the facial folds between the nose and mouth (the naso-labial folds) and the folds between the mouth and chin (the melo-labial folds). Results are visible immediately.


Juvederm has a long duration of effect, with results typically lasting for at least seven to eight months and for up to a year in some patients. In our office we have used Juvederm for years on hundreds of patients. Our patients have truly enjoyed the cosmetic enhancement that Juvederm has provided.


Our patients who have signed up for Brilliant Distinctions will receive their $100 discount at the time they check out. Patients who are not members of Brilliant Distinctions will receive a $100 mail-in rebate coupon. We encourage all of our Botox and Juvederm patients to sign up for Brilliant Distinctions, if they have not yet done so, in order to receive savings on future Botox and Juvederm treatments.


A Special Message to our Botox and Juvederm Patients –
