Beauty is a Giving Heart



She came to me many years ago to discuss treatments for her leg veins and some facial procedures. I believe it was about 10 years ago. She is a fair-skinned, true blond hair, blue eyed beauty and received sclerotherapy on several visits at LaserMed. Then I found out she was a nurse. A registered nurse.

At the time I didn’t have a registered nurse at the clinic. I had a LPN, medical esthetician and a medical assistant. I thought it would be a great idea to add her as the LPN didn’t work out for us. She was a hard-working, smart nurse from day 1. Well-rounded and got along with coworkers well, but was exceptionally kind and accommodating to patients and they loved her. When it was time to be tough and strong, she was not a layer short of a true New Yorker which she was.

Her tricks from under her sleeves didn’t stop there. She is an amazing baker who brought cookies to work regularly and baked anywhere from beautiful to obscene cakes for staff birthdays. My husband offended his own mom by saying this nurse’s chocolate chip cookies were better than hers! She’s been baking for me loaves of Hungarian salt bread and egg bread along with her famous cookies every Christmas. A couple of times she even sewed warm blankets for my boys.

This woman is an amazing mom to 3 sons and grandma of 5 grandchildren today. She is still working at my clinic 10 years later! Lucky me!!

For those 10 years, she has been treated regularly with Botox, fillers, Sculptra, lasers, Ultherapy, sclerotherapy and RF needling. She has always protected her skin with zinc oxide containing broad spectrum physical sunscreen and has used awesome effective age-defying products such as SkinCeuticals vitamin C phloretin, and bioserum. No doubt, without going under the knife, she looks amazing!! Her skin is clear and radiant; she has no wrinkles, but exhibits natural facial expressions. She doesn’t have to worry about visible laxity either. What a joy it has been to work with her over a decade and watch her be so ahead of the game in this aging process!

What is the cherry on top though?

It is her inside beauty of a giving heart shining through on the outside that makes this natural beauty glow even more. A beautiful heart that gives never burns down. It keeps going strong, brilliant and radiant.

Facelift & Necklift with No Surgery – Ultherapy

photo of an older woman smiling | Dr. Jean Chapman As you age, gravity, time and exposure to the sun tend to take over your youthful appearance. Certain areas of your skin naturally begin to sag, showing your age in your facial structure and on your neck. The jawline loses its tightness and the neck area develops lines and loses tone. In the past, the answer to recovering a more youthful look was to undergo a surgical facelift or necklift procedure.

The Ultherapy Lift has changed the way you can now lift your skin for a revitalized appearance without surgery. Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that is FDA-cleared to lift the neck’s skin and facial skin for the smoothing of lines and wrinkles. Ultherapy can also be used to lift skin beneath sagging eyebrows, under the chin, and on the décolletage area of the breasts.

With Ultherapy treatment, ultrasound energy is used to tighten and uplift the skin in a more natural way, without the downtime necessary for an invasive procedure. In fact, Ultherapy is the sole non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure to lift neck, chin and eyebrow skin. Ultrasound has been used for more than 50 years, safely, in the field of medicine. Over 500,000 clinical study treatments have proven this ultrasound therapy to be safe and effective the world over.

This therapy will lift the skin in a gradual and natural way so as not to appear too suddenly and drastically transformed. The results are long-lasting and over time, improved lifting and firmness are achieved. It works by stimulating the skin’s collagen production via ultrasound energy delivered to deep dermal layers, with no incisions or disturbance of the skin’s outer surface. There are no needles involved and no toxic substances. The energy of the ultrasound triggers the skin to respond by producing fresh collagen, a natural substance needed for skin plumping and wrinkle smoothing.

Right after your first Ultherapy treatment, you will see positive effects, but the treatment continues to work over time. Within two or three months, new collagen keeps working to lift and firm skin on the face and neck.

Laser Med Skin & Vein Clinic is the premiere provider of this therapy in the Atlanta area. This advanced medical and skin care clinic is located in Johns Creek and serves the Atlanta area, including Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell and Cumming.

Laser Med Skin & Vein Clinic provides Ultherapy services for face, neck, décolletage and eyebrows. They also offer a wide range of medical and cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction, injectables, laser procedures and much more. Please contact a staff member at Laser Med Skin & Vein Clinic with any questions you may have concerning Ultherapy or other skin and vein treatments. The information in this article is not meant to replace an individual consultation with a medical professional.

A Message About Faithfulness

I have been lucky enough to have most of my staff to work with me at LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic for ten to twelve years, which is a very long time! Wow, how do I deserve to have these wonderful ladies stay with me so long? One sweet, kind lady who has been my go-to staffer for twelve years may as well change her middle name to “faithful”. I am utterly blessed to have three ladies that have worked with me for over a decade and three more newer staff members with whom I wish would stay with me for that long as well.Beautiful orchid flower banner

Is faithful a word used to describe you?

I am married to one whom I would use “faithful” as one of the top three words to describe him. He is also loving, kind, reliable, and helpful. I am so thankful and blessed that we’ve been married for 18 years! I also have friends who are faithful and enduring and I can go visit them nearby as well as all over the world and still pick up right where we left off. They are my friends who will be my friends forever. What would you say if I tell you I am also blessed with having faithful patients? Too good to be true, isn’t it?

One of my patients who is still a regular was one of my first patients from 2002 from when I first started seeing patients out of a friend’s office before mine was open. She is an amazing communicator and a well-spoken career woman who also devotes her time to helping those in need in her community. I would dare to say she looks about the same as she did fourteen years ago! She is living proof that keeping the ideal body weight consistently throughout life is one of the major secrets to looking tight and young even in the face! I appreciate all the ladies and gentlemen who have allowed me to serve them all these years as well as those who have returned to continue our journey together again.

In any situation, faithfulness is an essential ingredient for all types of successful and happy relationships. I value patients who allow me to tweak and modify my esthetic treatment plans for them as we age together. As their inevitable aging factors come to the table, I know what I need to do so much better because I have seen them regularly over the years. I remember and I also have the pictures of what they used to look like and know what I need to do to keep them looking as naturally improved as possible and still look like themselves.

Faithfulness pays off after all. Would you like to become one of my cherished patients? Contact us at our beautiful office in Johns Creek, serving patients from the communities of Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Cumming, Suwanee, Roswell and Johns Creek, as well as patients from all over the Atlanta Metro area and beyond.

Tired of Hiding Ugly Spider Veins?

Summer is when we see “short” everywhere – short dresses, short skirts, short shorts and way up to there swim suits. Short is in the stores, on websites, on advertisements, in magazines, on TV and on people everywhere! And what if you are so self-conscious of the veins on your legs that you feel you just can’t participate in the “short” trend? Dr. Jean Chapman, Owner/Founder of LaserMed Skin & Vein Clinic puts the spotlight on a very popular and successful treatment in her practice known as sclerotherapy.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Treat Unsightly Varicose Veins During the Winter for Beautiful Legs Come Spring

Treat Unsightly Varicose Veins for Beautiful Legs

Sclerotherapy is an FDA approved popular hardening solution that is injected directly into the purple spider or feeder blue veins to close them. In a couple of weeks or less, those veins are disposed and gone. Different types of solutions may still be used at other practices, but they cause more discomfort and less success. Superficial lasers are helpful at times, typically on smaller facial veins, but overall sclerotherapy is the most effective and least painful treatment with the least amount of side effects. There are so many places that advertise that they treat spider veins. Be sure you have selected the best vein doctor to take care of your vein removal.

Tips for Selecting a Vein Doctor

The American College of Phlebology or ACP is the official governing organization that oversees the vein specialty. Board certified phlebologists are recognized vein specialists who are sub-specialized in the treatment of any veins, both superficial and deep, in the body. With this specific training and certification, Dr. Chapman understands and diagnoses superficial cosmetic issues as well as deep medical vein issues and is able to treat all by using lasers, injections, minor surgeries and other modalities. That’s why you should select Dr. Chapman as your vein specialist over the other specialists that only treat superficial veins with either lasers or simple injections.

How Do I Know if Sclerotherapy is Right for Me?

Dr. Chapman, a board certified vein specialist, will examine and diagnose your vein condition with duplex ultrasound to decide if simple sclerotherapy is what you need. In many cases only a single sclerotherapy treatment may be sufficient, although typically a series of treatments are recommended for ultimate results. However, if reflux in present in the veins causing venus insufficiency then endovenous laser ablation treatment (EVLT) or a phlebectomy may be indicated.

Do you have questions about your spider veins? Call LaserMed Skin & Vein Clinic to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jean Chapman 678-990-4900.

Body FX to Slenderize Now

bodyFX4Did you make a New Year’s resolution to get fit and healthy? And you’ve kept your objective and diligently work out, consumed a recommended diet, kept hydrated and applied sunscreen? By now you probably have seen results, but no matter what you do, there’s that stubborn area that just won’t tighten, that bulge that just will not go away. And then there’s the time factor – what can you do?

Meet BodyFX

LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic is delighted to share the next generation of non–invasive body contouring treatments. If you’re someone who lives a healthy lifestyle, BodyFX may be the right option for you. Body FX is a non-surgical fat removal body contouring solution that provides precise, targeted heating at a temperature that is perfect for destroying fat cells, reduces the unsightly appearance of cellulite, and tightens skin. BodyFX is used to treat: arms; abdomen; hips; waist; front, back, inner and outer thighs; bra bulge; muffin top; and love handles. Because it’s a treatment with no need for needles, sutures, or scalpels there’s no downtime, minimal to no discomfort, and it can fit into most busy schedules.

How Does BodyFX Work?

BodyFX combines a targeted deep tissue heating radio frequency energy, working synergistically with vacuum negative pressure vacuum suction to permanently remove unwanted fat cells. The BodyFx hand piece delivers precise, targeted radio-frequency energy which distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The result? Permanent destruction of fat and tightening of the skin. Built-in skin temperature feedback and shut-off controls ensure maximum safety. During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation, not dissimilar to a deep tissue massage. Typically the only side effect may be a little temporary redness at the area treated.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

BodyFX is performed in a 30-60 minute session in the comfort of Lasermed’s office, serving the communities of Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Cumming, Suwanee, Roswell and Johns Creek, as well as patients from all over the Atlanta Metro area and beyond.  Patients can immediately return to their daily activities after the treatment. Skin will feel softer and smoother right away although gradual improvement as the sessions progress is typical. Full results are evident after the series of treatments is completed.

Are You a Good Candidate for BodyFX?

What is the first step? First Dr. Chapman will determine if you are a good candidate for this particular procedure based on your area(s) of concern and desired outcome. If you are generally within range of your ideal weight, lead a healthy lifestyle, work out regularly, and eat a healthy diet, but still struggle with a persistent problem area(s) and have realistic expectations of results, BodyFX treatment should be a good match for you!

Dr. Chapman will work closely with you to recommend multiple body contouring options for you to consider which may combine Body FX with Velashape to reduce and re-shape the contours of desired areas and to make the skin firmer and tighter. Call us at 678-990-4900 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Chapman.

There’s No Time Like Summer for RF Needling Lift

RF Needling Lift Before and After

Dr. Chapman is committed to providing her patients with cutting edge technology in the realm of less invasive non-surgical approaches to facial rejuvenation, skin tightening and smoothing of wrinkles and creases. Nonsurgical treatments offer less downtime, less risk, and are more cost friendly than surgery, and these treatments have shown excellent results for people exhibiting signs of aging who want to look refreshed and more youthful in a subtle yet apparent way. Now Dr. Chapman is introducing a new technology, RF Needling, which combines the benefits of micro-needling with the tightening and uplifting impact of radio-frequency energy.

RF Needling Technology Overview

RF Needling delivers targeted bipolar RF energy to various selectable depths in the skin using different micro-needling head configurations. These precisely arranged micro needles emit RF energy in finite areas. This RF energy that is delivered through the needles is tightly focused at the tip of the needle which reduces trauma to the surrounding skin tissue. The RF heat energy de-naturalizes the tissue surrounding the micro-needles. The resulting wound healing process increases fibroblast activity, fibers are rearranged, and a significant increase of collagen occurs. The tissue is regenerated at the treatment area.

Benefits of RF Needling

The beauty of RF Needling is that it is a versatile procedure – it can improve conditions ranging from superficial skin tone problems, photo damage and large pore size to deep textural concerns, acne scarring, skin laxity and deep wrinkles. It is particularly effective in softening vertical lip lines. The best part is that there are no associated activity or sun exposure restrictions, which is a key concern during the summer when considering a chemical or laser peel treatment . What are its benefits?

  • Non-surgical face lifting lasting 8 months or  more with 3 recommended treatments.
  • It is a good alternative to traditional fractional CO2 laser because it reduces the associated downtime (about 36 hours), prolonged redness, and swelling side-effects, yet offers comparable results to the best fractional CO2 laser on moderate and deep wrinkles, acne scarring, and skin clarity.
  • Stimulates regeneration of collagen and elastin formation
  • Safe to treat neck and other areas exhibiting skin laxity and wrinkles
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars and brightens other pigmented scars.
  • Appropriate for ethnic skin without the reaction of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation which is common with laser ablation and chemical peel techniques.

Excitement About RF Needling Treatment

The RF Needling apparatus can be adjusted to reach individual areas of the face at different depths, which is important because the thicknesses of the dermis between the forehead, eyes, cheeks, lips, jawline, neck, and chin area vary. With the adjustable depth capability, the deep dermis is reached, but the underlying tissue and fat is not disrupted. And except for along the jawline and under the neck, preserving some fat is desirable in particular areas of the face to maintain volume. Dr. Chapman recommends the RF Needling treatment as a perfect complement to the lifting and tightening effects of Ultherapy.  We call this pairing the Youthful Lift.

Interested in reaping multiple benefits of skin tightening, diminished pore size, lifting of droopy skin, rejuvenation of youthful contours, and reduction in the look of acne or other scarring, during the summer with no activity or sun exposure restrictions? Be sure to watch Dr. Chapman as she discusses this versatile treatment on atl&co on Tuesday, July 28th at 11:00am and join us at our Open House on Wednesday, July 29th at 1:00 pm. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Chapman at or beautiful office in Johns Creek, serving the communities of Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Cumming, Suwanee, Roswell and Johns Creek, as well as patients from all over the Atlanta Metro area and beyond.

Pre-Baby Body with UltraShape and Velashape III

Lasermed Skin and Vein Clinic Can Help You Get Your Pre-Baby Body Back with UltraShape and Velashape III Body Contouring Treatments

Lasermed Skin and Vein Clinic Can Help You Get Your Pre-Baby Body Back with UltraShape and Velashape III Body Contouring Treatments

Any mom knows that having a child changes your life. A unique set of physical and emotional challenges are faced following a pregnancy and childbirth. In a recent M/A/R/C Research Survey, a sampling of 500 U.S. women who had a child within the last eight years showed

•   How these women felt about their body post-pregnancy;

•   What parts of their body are of most concern;

•   What causes these body image concerns and lifestyle changes these women have made since having their child.

LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic, located in Johns Creek on Old Alabama Rd., offers a number of services to help post baby moms feel and look more confident.

Unanticipated Body Changes

Nearly every woman who has had a child agrees that their body has been transformed to some degree, and the majority feel that the post-baby differences were not positive ones. Although doctors cite an average weight gain of about 30 pounds as typical during pregnancy, at least half of the women who have experienced having a child say they knew that potential for weight gain but were unprepared for the kinds of changes that actually occurred to their bodies, particularly after the child was born.

Overwhelmingly, a flabby stomach, referred to as “jelly belly”, was the primary post baby concern, exacerbated with stretch marks and cellulite. Apparently, jelly belly is a condition thought about on a daily basis, although  for many thinking about it was the only action taken. Oversized sweaters and sweatshirts became a staple wardrobe item to cover it up. Bikinis became a relic of the past – only 10% risked bikini exposure.

Post Baby Body Woes

Overall, almost three-quarters of new moms reported they did not feel physically attractive after having their baby, and most were either somewhat or very unhappy with their body. Of those women who were able to lose some or all of their pregnancy weight, close to 90% lamented they could not recover their pre-baby stomach, which was one of the features they liked best before pregnancy. In order to reach their ideal shape, on average it was reported that it would take losing two clothing sizes. The average weight women report wanting to lose was 36 pounds, although 20% felt a weight loss of between 11 and 20 pounds would put them at a pre-baby figure. However, there appear to be three main obstacles to body improvement: staying motivated; having energy; and finding the time to exercise.

UltraShape and Velashape III to the Rescue!

LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic has an answer to jelly belly despair with two body contouring procedures targeted at reduction of fat cells and skin tightening. These treatments are not a substitute for weight loss, but if you have reached a healthy weight and just can’t seem to lose that jiggle, you are potentially a great candidate for body contouring.  UltraShape can help you to lose unwanted fat cells in the belly region without surgery or pain, without incisions, anesthesia, or post-procedure downtime. Velashape III helps reduce the appearance of unsightly cellulite while simultaneously tightening skin laxity. Lasermed Skin and Vein Clinic has determined Velashape III™ to be a perfect complement to the fat reduction capabilities of UltraShape, enhancing the body contours of those “problem areas” through skin tightening and smoothing of underlying structural skin tissues. It is particularly effective after losing weight, or childbirth, where skin may be loose and drooping, allowing you to enjoy the body you once had pre-children. Contact LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic, serving the communities of Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Cumming, Suwanee, Roswell and Johns Creek, as well as patients from all over the Atlanta Metro area and beyond, and schedule a consultation with Dr. Chapman to get your post-baby self in pre-baby shape! It’s one less thing to think about.

Shape Up by Summer

Springtime Friendly Procedures to Shape Up by Summer

LaserMed Recommends a Dynamic Duo for Complete Body Contouring. Target Reduction of Problem Fatty Areas With UltraShape While Reducing Skin Laxity and Cellulite With Velashape III.

Living a healthy lifestyle, consuming a balanced diet, and engaging in regular exercise are wonderful means of remaining physically fit and losing weight naturally, but two unappealing phenomenon occur as we age: skin loses its elasticity, and fat redistributes into “problem” areas which don’t respond to regular exercise and healthy eating. If you’ve recently lost weight, these issues may be particularly prominent.

Summer is right around the corner so if you’re having a hard time working off those stubborn inches after our cold winter, holiday parties, and Valentines Day and Easter holidays where sweets abound, talk to Dr. Chapman at LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic about her newest advanced laser technology procedures for non-invasive body contouring and cellulite reduction – UltraShape and Velashape. If varicose and spider veins are causing you to be reluctant to unveil your legs, sclerotherapy is Dr. Chapman’s recommendation to eliminate the roadmaps on your legs. And what about your upper body and face? Ultherapy!! It is one of the few decolléte and facial contour treatments that can be done in the summertime, as it does not require protection from the sun.

The Dynamic Shape Shifting Duo

UltraShape is a non-invasive fat removal procedure that can help to smooth out body contours and do away with unsightly bulges in problem areas for good. If you really want to be in shorts, midriff tops and bathing suit ready shape this upcoming summer season, the comprehensive duo of UltraShape for fat reduction and Velashape to smooth cellulite and tighten skin laxity may be the perfect all-embracing procedures for helping you get the results you want.

Why UltraShape? Many patients who are at a healthy weight are troubled by a few problem areas, such as extra fat around the bac of the waistline, stubborn fat around the hips and thighs, bra bulge, and a layer of fat on the abdomen. If you are dealing with similar problems, you may have already discovered that these areas have become resistant to diet and exercise. If you aren’t ready for liposuction surgery, UltraShape may be the solution.

Follow Up With VelaShape. First and only FDA cleared non-invasive medical solution for both cellulite and circumferential reduction, Velashape™ is a virtually painless non-surgical and non-invasive treatment which targets skin laxity and reduction in the appearance of cellulite. There is no downtime – you can return to your daily activities immediately following treatment. The precise heating of the targeted treatment area ensures a safe and effective treatment. The heating is combined with Endermologie™ type suction rollers as well as therapeutic deep infra-red energy to tighten and smooth.

Ultherapy – Warm Weather Friendly Above the Belly Rejuvenation Procedure

Does your face, brow, neck, decollete, or any combination of these areas seem to be aging you with sagging skin and loss of the pleasing contours of your youth? While many of the procedures for skin rejuvenation, including CO2 fractional laser facial resurfacing, chemical peels and microdermabrasion are best conducted when exposure to the sun is less likely in the fall and winter months, Ultherapy is perfectly comfortable in any season. This non-invasive process uses uplifting ultrasound energy to tone, tighten, and lift loose skin by stimulating the body’s natural healing process. Brow, eyes, neck and decollete can be revitalized. Immediate improvement is evident, and collagen continues to be laid down for up to 6 months.

Roadmaps Are For Summertime Road Trips

When you have roadmaps of varicose and spider veins on your legs, enjoying the “bareness” of summer activities may take a detour. Dr. Chapman recommends Sclerotherapy to the rescue to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins on the legs. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution directly into the vein, which irritates the lining of the veins, causing it to stick together and gradually disappear. As it typically requires two treatments to eradicate the spider veins, at no more than four weeks apart, you can start the process right now and be bare-legged by the beginning of summer.

Problem Areas Perfected by Summer

As we head into the summer, the swimsuit, shorts and wedding season, there are very specific “problem areas” that people really start to think about such as sagging skin and loss of facial youthful contours, weight gain in specific areas that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, vein imperfections on the legs, and the summer nemesis –cellulite. Now is a great time to schedule procedures at LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic, serving the communities of Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Cumming, Suwanee, Roswell and Johns Creek, as well as patients from all over the Atlanta Metro area and beyond, because you can expect to see full results come summer. All of these treatments improve the appearance of the face and body any time of yearLiving a healthy lifestyle, consuming a balanced diet, and engaging in regular exercise are wonderful means of remaining physically fit and losing weight naturally, but two unappealing phenomenon occur as we age: skin loses its elasticity, and fat redistributes into “problem” areas which don’t respond to regular exercise and healthy eating. If you’ve recently lost weight, these issues may be particularly prominent.



We all know the frustration. No matter how much you eat like a rabbit, torture yourself at the gym with crunches, planks and leg lifts, you still have stubborn little pouches of belly or back fat. Not to mention saddlebags on the thighs, love handles or a double-dip derriere. You can blame it on heredity, you can curse the “menopot”, you can chalk it up to age – no matter what reason applies, the truth is that research does support the fact that that stubborn subcutaneous fat shows resistance to both diet and exercise. While there are various non-invasive treatments on the market to “melt” or “freeze” away fat, as well as the more traditional liposuction techniques, UltraShape, the newest breakthrough technology by Syneron and Candela, can help eradicate that tenacious fat that workouts just don’t work away. And its not just for women – men benefit too.

How UltraShape Passed LaserMed’s Quality Control

Although LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic in Johns Creek, Georgia has been providing fat reduction and body contouring treatments such as Smartlipo for years with success, it has been Dr. Chapman’s desire to add completely non-invasive fat reducing device for a long time. Ultrashape is Dr. Chapman’s final selection following a four years quest to find the ONE DEVICE that proved to be the least invasive, with a comfortable no-downtime process, that is extremely effective, produces long-lasting results and results in the least complications. Dr. Chapman doesn’t believe in just reading reviews and manufacturer literature. Dr. Chapman and her staff have personally tried half a dozen non-invasive fat reducing devices over the past 4 years. Some devices were comfortable but didn’t give lasting results, whereas others were very painful experiences. One device even gave Dr. Chapman severe bruising, numbness and muscle pain for 6 weeks!!! UltraShape was the one technology that scored A-1 on all the critical checkmarks for best comfort, best results and least complications. Final approval goes to UltraShape!!

Why is UltraShape Different Than Other Procedures?

UltraShape is a Painless and Comfortable Procedure With No Downtime.
UltraShape is a Painless and Comfortable Fat Reduction Procedure With No Downtime.

First and foremost, UltraShape is not like anything out there. UltraShape is the first and only FDA-cleared, non-invasive body shaping device for selective fat cell destruction. The UltraShape procedure uses focused, pulsed ultrasound energy to target and instantly destroy stubborn fat. Unlike liposuction, UltraShape is nonsurgical – it does not involve incisions, anesthesia, or result in post-procedure downtime. And unlike other fat reduction procedures that use heat or freeze fat, UltraShape is painless and leaves no visible signs of treatment. The procedure delivers ultrasound energy directly into the stubborn fat below the skin’s surface, where rapidly changing pressure waves create vapor cavities in the fat cells. This stresses the fat cell membranes, causing them to rupture—all while leaving the surrounding skin, nerves, and blood vessels unharmed. Post treatment, the only visible aftereffects are smooth, contoured results. You can hit LaserMed’s office, then zoom on to zumba class the same day.

To date, over 300,000 people have enjoyed the benefits of UltraShape. In fact, it’s been voted the best body contouring treatment in New Beauty’s 2014 Beauty Choice Awards by leading experts, editors, and New Beauty readers. This is backed up by a clinical study where 94% of UltraShape recipients were satisfied with their results. Although individual results vary, it was found possible that you can lose inches up to two clothes sizes, and results may be visible within two weeks after the first treatment, although a series of three treatments is manufacturer recommended. However make note: UltraShape is not intended for major weight loss, and findings show that it works best for people who maintain a healthy exercise diet lifestyle.

What are The Benefits of UltraShape?

Look at the key reasons why UltraShape is the latest non-invasive alternative that’s clinically proven to reduce localized fat deposits and body circumference.
• Clinically proven pulsed (non-thermal) focused ultrasound technology for instant, selective and permanent fat cell destruction;
• Delivers consistent fat reduction throughout the treatment area – no irregularities;
• Avoids bruising, swelling or downtime with pulsed focused ultrasound technology;
• Comfortable and simple, “walk-in, walk-out” procedure;
• Long-lasting measurable lost inches results within just a few weeks;
• High patient satisfaction with no reported side effects;
• 3 treatments recommended, scheduled 2 weeks apart, to get long-lasting results!

Invest Your Tax Return on Improvements to Your Health, Beauty and Well-Being

Invest Your Tax Return on Improvements to Your Health, Beauty and Well-Being

For most of us taxpayers, preparing your tax return is often one of the most dreaded necessities in life. But hopefully there is a benefit to all the hassle and stress that accompanies the filing of your taxes. And that benefit is a lump sum tax refund, with the average estimated return around $3,000. If you’ve been trying to scrimp and save up during the year for a little “something” just for you, and haven’t been able to get it all together, a tax return represents a nice, big windfall. Although there are always good solid ways to spend the refund – paying off credit cards, home improvements, an IRA, or savings options, a vacation or electronics? But what if it could go toward enhancing your appearance and boosting self-confidence, which is a long term gain? If you’ve been considering treating yourself to a cosmetic treatment with that tax refund, is recommended to give some serious thought as to how best to use that money. If you feel happy about yourself, does it really matter if your backsplash is the latest glass tile trend?

Long Term Gains

We’re not talking radical procedures for a total and often unrecognizable transformation. At LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic, we offer predominantly non-invasive, non-surgical procedures to improve a problem area or condition that has been keeping you from feeling and looking your best. Is your chin doubling up on itself? Are you reluctant to wear anything shorter than capris in the heat of summer because of varicose and spider veins? Does it take valuable time every day to try and hide acne scarring or sun damage only to see your reflection and it’s still visible through layers of make-up? Are your beautiful eyes disappearing under folds of draping skin? LaserMed suggests procedures that allow you to still be yourself – only better. And there’s no more valuable investment than one that improves your self-esteem and ultimately quality of life. Think about it – in 10 years will that $3000 make a huge difference in a mutual fund or stocks the way the market goes up and down? Or in 10 years will you be able to look back and say, “I think that was the best decision I ever made. I’ve felt so good and I really looked so much younger”.

How Do I Get the Most From My Return?

Recent 2014 statistics indicate that of those people receiving a tax return, approximately 30% spent all or part of it on cosmetic procedures. Depending on the return amount, your age, health of your skin, issues to be addressed and/or areas identified for improvement and desired outcome, LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic shares some recommendations on how you can put your refund to work for you!

Non-Invasive, Short Term, Targeted Area Treatments for Smaller Returns:

Tax refund a little less than you expected? Have you been blessed with a wonderful complexion but have extremely strong facial muscles so defined lines are etched between your brows, on the sides of your eyes or on the forehead? Do you see a puppet looking back at you because of nasal labial folds or marionette lines? Is your skin looking dull and flaky? Or do you just need a little boost for a special occasion, or a well deserved hour of pampering? Here are some choices to give you a “photoshopped” advantage with just a few minor changes.

Botox or Dysport – Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles between the brows, crow’s feet alongside eyes, and forehead. Dysport can also be used to help reduce the lip pursing movements which contribute to lip lines.
Injectable Dermal Fillers – Restylane, Sculptra or Voluma Ultra
Chemical Peels – Vi Peel or a Custom Peel
Intense Pulse Light (IPL is often called Photofacial) treats pigmented lesions, redness or broken capillaries (2 or 3 sessions)
LaserFacial – Mild acne scar or rosascea laser treatment series (3 or 4 sessions)
Sclerotherapy – Minor Spider Veins

Average Returns Score Deeper Epidermis and Laser Treatments with Long Lasting Results

Did you receive a tax return around the national average? Good for you. If you are in the age group where skin laxity and gravity have become partners, and are seeking a solution to tighten, uplift and stimulate collagen product for select areas, including your face, brows, eyes, neck, thighs, or decollete? What about those stubborn little bulgy pockets of fat that just won’t budge despite diet and exercise? Is your entire face at that point where an all over revitalization is required? Is unwanted hair or unsightly veins on various parts of your body making you self-conscious, and always wishing it was winter? Or do you suffer from tattoo regret? Whatever your specific body vexation, LaserMed Skin and Vein Clinic can invest your tax return funds for your maximum benefit.

Fractionated CO2 Laser: For a total facial rejuvenation, Fractionated CO2 Laser treatment evens out skin color, and refines skin texture, reduces melasma, softens fine lines and wrinkles, and levels out acne and surgical scars. You’ll look glowing and refreshed.

Medical Micro-Needling with Growth Factor: This minimally invasive non-surgical procedure for targeted areas of facial rejuvenation involves the use of a micro-needling device to create a controlled skin injury. The body then responds by stimulating the production of collagen, which improves the appearance of common skin conditions such as scar revision, fine line correction, texture improvement, as well as lifting and tightening the skin. The infusion of the growth factor serum penetrates into the skin for a boost of good healing proteins that promote cell regeneration.

Tattoo Removal: Removing a tattoo uses a shortwave light beam laser. The color in the tattoo absorbs the light and begins to break up the ink which is harmlessly removed by the body’s immune system.

FIT Cellulite Treatment and Body Contouring: A radio frequency procedure which targets laxity and sagginess on the body for instant, temporary tightening and lifting of the treated area with no downtime. Also increases collagen and elastin production to combat the appearance of cellulite on hips, thighs and buttocks. Add the Resolution Cellulite System to maintain the reduced appearance of cellulite.

Sclerotherapy: If spider or varicose veins on your legs make you dread warm weather, then Sclerotherapy is the answer. The process involves the use of a series of very tiny injections of a solution directly into the affected veins. This therapeutic liquid solution causes the affected veins to first seal shut, then collapse and slowly fade away.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (CTEV): This minimally invasive technology represents the most recent advancement in treating varicose veins.

Laser Hair Reduction: Remove that unwanted hair by means of exposure to laser that destroys the hair follicle. A series of treatments is required due to the hair growth cycle. Price varies by area, so small areas such as upper lip, center of chest (female) or chin may be able to be completed even if your refund amount is below the national average.
