Skinspirations Debuts CoolSculpting Service to Meet Rising Demand for Nonsurgical Fat-Reduction Procedures

Skinspirations Debuts CoolSculpting Service to Meet Rising Demand for Nonsurgical Fat-Reduction Procedures

Tampa Bay, FL (PRWEB) April 02, 2015

The newest statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reveal non-surgical body contouring treatments are up by 43% in just one year, making last year the first time more than 100,000 treatments were performed in one year since ASAPS started tracking the statistic. (1) Even though non-surgical fat-reduction procedures are on the rise, The Atlantic reports liposuction is down by 41% (2), indicating that as more non-invasive alternatives become available, more patients may be opting for these methods to fight the battle of the bulge. Tampa Bay cosmetic facility Skinspirations has recently added CoolSculpting to their menu of services to meet the demand for non-surgical fat-reduction treatments. While there have been many recent advances in non-invasive fat-reduction technology, CoolSculpting has been deemed the most effective of the fat reduction devices.

CoolSculpting was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in September of 2010, (3) and has already treated over one million patients. (4) The device is unique in that it selectively reduces fat layers in problem areas by using a patented cooling technology. During the clinically proven procedure, a non-invasive applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the treatment area in order to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. Since underlying fat is specifically targeted, surface skin tissue remains unaffected. When fat cells are exposed to extreme cold, a process of natural removal is triggered, which gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. Once the fat cells are frozen, they are naturally eliminated from the body and gone for good. As a result, bulges in treated areas of the body are reduced without harming surrounding tissue.

Invasive fat-reduction procedures, such as liposuction, come with risks including infections, internal organ punctures and fat embolism (loosened fat breaking away and becoming trapped in a blood vessel). (5) CoolScuplting does not require surgery or needles, making it a safer alternative to liposuction. Because the delivery of precise cooling affects only targeted fat cells, adjacent tissues are left unharmed and intact. The procedure must be performed in a medical office under the supervision of a physician specializing in cosmetic procedures.

“CoolScultping has only been around for a few years, but already we are seeing a huge increase in the amount of patients receiving it,” says Cynthia Elliott, M.D., owner of Skinspirations. “I’m expecting that we’ll see CoolSculpting become one of the biggest trends in non-surgical procedures.”

CoolSculpting was developed by ZELTQIQ and is based on a process called Cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis resulted from a discovery by Drs. Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. First published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine, a peer-reviewed professional journal, their initial work proved that subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissue. When exposed to precisely controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, fat cells will undergo a gradual cell death through a process called “induced apoptosis.” (6)

Because CoolSculpting is noninvasive – reported side effects have included temporary numbness, redness, swelling and bruising – patients do not need downtime to recover from the procedure. The procedure lasts one to two hours, and patients can resume daily activities including work and exercise immediately following treatment. After a CoolSculpting treatment, fat cells will self-destruct over several months. On average, each CoolSculpting Procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated areas, and patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks following the treatment. In most patients, the most dramatic results occur over a period of two to four months.

Recent Channel 7 Coverage Sees Sydney Thai Restaurant Demand Rise, Holy Basil’s Christmas Spots Filling Fast

Recent Channel 7 Coverage Sees Sydney Thai Restaurant Demand Rise, Holy Basil’s Christmas Spots Filling Fast

Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) December 18, 2014

Holy Basil, one of Sydney’s top Thai restaurants is feeling the positive effects from a glowing review they received from Felicity Urquhart, the hostess of Sydney Weekender, a lifestyle show aired on Channel 7. Because of the media coverage, the suburban eatery’s Christmas bookings are filling up so fast they can hardly keep up with the reservation requests.

“We are now offering Christmas party functions at both of our Sydney branches,” says Chef Tony Inthavong, co-owner of Holy Basil. “While we already have a number of bookings, but still have some spots left so we invite everyone to consider us for their holiday get-together.”

According to an article published on the Good Food website, Australian diets have undergone significant changes with more and more people eating Chinese or Thai for dinner. Australians simply eat more Asian food compared to around 15 years ago which is backed by a report made by the University of Sydney saying there are more than 3,000 Thai restaurants in Australia, one-quarter of which can be found in Sydney alone.

With a passion to provide high quality, authentic Thai food, Holy Basil was opened. It’s a family owned and operated Thai and Laos restaurant in Sydney and showcases the cuisine of both cultures using the freshest ingredients, herbs and spices which are distinctive of the regions. What’s more, there is both a casual dining eatery and a fine dining section under the same roof.

With Holy Basil’s reputation growing, the Sydney Weekender, a lifestyle show that airs weekly on the Seven Network became aware of the restaurant and reviewed them. The popular show, which investigates the best places to stay, eat and play to help its viewers make the most out of their weekends, recently featured the Thai and Laos restaurant on a recent episode.

The Sydney Weekender’s website mentions that “Sydney is flooded with great Thai restaurants but now there’s a new kid on the block dishing up the classics and Lao food… they find the balance between sweet, sour and spicy to bring you uniquely Thai & Laos cuisines.”

Hostess Felicity Urquhart said “…the flavours are unique and exciting and the dishes are sure to uplift your spirit.”

She specifically preferred the papaya salad, seared ox tongue, deep fried snapper topped with Asian salad, and the chilli roast pork belly in basil and garlic sauce. She was surprised to learn that Holy Basil makes and serves its own gelato filled with uniquely Asian flavours.

(Carson City, Nevada) Chocoholic, Adam Green, Certifies Xocai’s “Change Your Chocolate” Success to Demand for Raw Blueberry in Saitama Japan and Chiayi Taiwan

(PRWEB) February 10, 2014

“Conventional chocolate processing” means that the cacao is heated alkalized and combined with simulated and unhealthy ingredients, all of which destroys the cacao’s potent antioxidants and degrades its nutritional content.

With that said, twelve pounds of chocolate is consumed, on average per person, per year. That is a lot of Chocolate! Here is the problem: most people are eating the “regular” unhealthy chocolate that has been ripped of its vital antioxidants and other important nutrients.

Xoçai® Healthy Chocolate® uses their proprietary combination of cold-processing which helps to preserve the vital antioxidants and other crucial nutrients found in dark chocolate.

Xoçai®’s Healthy Dark Chocolate® products are perfect for any lifestyle and represent an easy way to provide optimal antioxidant protection for the body’s major organs and systems while enhancing overall wellness.

Xocai Healthy Chocolate Ambassador, Adam Paul Green, from Carson City Nevada, just returned for a valuable visit to Saitama Japan and Chiayi Taiwan. While there, Adam met with fellow distributors and their customers. Adam was there to help spread the news about the Xocai Healthy Chocolate “Change Your Chocolate” campaign, which launched in early January 2014.
