Meet Cellfina™, an FDA approved cellulite treatment that works.

cellfina-before-after.png

Walk down any beauty aisle and chances are you’ll spot dozens of body creams claiming to help reduce the appearance of cellulite—that dimpled, orange-peel textured skin often found on the butt and thighs of women of every age.  Now, say goodbye to those creams, and say hello to the Cellfina System, an FDA approved cellulite treatment that is proven to help refine the look of orange-peel skin on the thighs and buttocks for up to three years after only one treatment.

First, let’s talk about cellulite. For all that cellulite sounds evil, it is actually nothing more than normal fat deposits in the body.  Unfortunately, when this fat pushes against connective tissues in the skin, it causes that telltale lumpy, orange-peel texture. And although cellulite does mainly affects women, it has nothing to do with weight, and even someone who is very thin can struggle with cellulite.  But now, that struggle can be over.  

Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared procedure clinically proven to help minimize and smooth the appearance of cellulite. Unlike topical creams, which can only work on the surface of the skin, Cellfina is a minimally-invasive cellulite treatment that actually works on the underlying structural cause of cellulite itself—the connective tissue—with no negative side-effects. The procedure takes about one hour, and most people see initial results after only one treatment, and long-term results for at least three years!

If you have cellulite and are ready to see real results that last, call me today for your complimentary Cellfina consultation.  In just one hour, your cellulite can be a memory.

Do you have hyperpigmentation (dark spots), freckles, or other skin pigment issues you want corrected? If yes, then IPL may be the perfect option for your skin.  As we discussed here, IPL uses specific wavelengths of light to target skin discoloration.

Cosmetic Skin Therapy to Pucker Up Your Pout with VOLBELLA®

For many women (and men!), it’s an unfortunate side-effect of age that wrinkles and lines become more noticeable, and skin begins to look hollow or worse—sag, particularly around the lips.  Now you have a new option to combat these unwelcome guests. Norah Clair Aesthetics is excited to offer one of the latest lip volumizing and enhancing products on the market: VOLBELLA®.

Part of the Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers, VOLBELLA is a cosmetic skin therapy that helps increase fullness and soften those pesky fine lines that form around the lips. A clear, pliable gel that has Lidocaine to increase comfort during treatments, VOLBELLA also contains hyaluronic acid (HA)—a naturally hydrating substance and humectant that attracts and holds moisture in the skin.  When used together, this combination smooth gel and HA plumps up lines and wrinkles while also helping the skin to retain moisture. What does that mean for you?  Lips that look remarkable full, smooth, and supple.

Like all dermal fillers, VOLBELLA is injected using an ultra-fine needle which means minimal swelling or sensitivity. And because there is very little downtime with this kind of cosmetic skin treatment, expect to see smoother, fuller lips almost immediately. And, for some, results may be seen for up to one year!

If you have been considering lip fillers, let me show you the beautiful benefits of VOLBELLA today! Contact me for your complimentary consultation at 800-652-7002 or online
