Vanquish ME - Charlotte, NC

Eliminating stubborn body fat More and more women are turning to Vanquish ME to help them melt away stubborn body fat. As we age, it can become harder and harder to lose weight. The fat that collects around the hips, thighs, and midsection can be particularly challenging to shed. While diet and exercise can help you lose weight, it may not be enough. It’s impossible to “target” areas for weight loss with diet and exercise. That’s where cosmetic treatments come in. Liposuction, cool sculpting, and selective RF treatment are some of the options for cosmetic fat reduction. What makes Vanquish ME different Vanquish ME is different from liposuction and cool sculpting because it is completely contact free. It also is much more comfortable than other treatments.

Cosmetic dermatology for dull and uneven skin

Cosmetic dermatology - Charlotte, NC

Common aesthetic skin concerns Sometimes, skin concerns can sneak up on us. Changes may not be dramatic, but over time, your skin’s appearance can gradually change. If you look closely, you may start to notice sunspots and discoloration that weren’t there before. Or, you may get the sense that your skin is duller overall and has lost the healthy and radiant glow of youth. Skin loses collagen and elastin over time, resulting in a reduction of firmness and radiance. A lifetime’s exposure to the sun’s UV rays can manifest in dark spots on the face, chest, and hands. These small hallmarks of aging can make us appear older than we are, or older than we want to look. Thankfully, cosmetic dermatology can assist with these issues. How cosmetic dermatology can help Cosmetic dermatology is the medical treatment of the skin’s appearance. It is distinguished from medical dermatology by the fact that cosmetic dermatology focuses specifically on aesthetics, not on illnesses or ailments. You can receive cosmetic dermatology procedures from a licensed medical doctor. In many cases, the same dermatologist that you see for your annual skin checkup and any medical concerns will be able to help you with cosmetic dermatology…
