SculpSure® is changing the way people feel about themselves by improving body confidence. This non-invasive, relatively fast procedure can help you see a significant improvement in the shape of your body. How can it help you get rid of fat cells?

Do you like the way you look? If not, you’re not alone! The Park Nicollet Melrose Center (May 2014) conducted a study that found 80 percent of women don’t like the way their body looks. Body confidence is critical to a person’s overall sense of well-being and mental state of health. With, SculpSure® you can feel happy and excited about your appearance, every time you look in the mirror.

What does SculpSure® offer?

SculpSure® is a body contouring technology that is highly targeted and designed to be very effective. It works to reduce the presence of fat cells in a safe way, allowing your doctor to help you trim away areas where you’ve had trouble getting rid of fat previously. The procedure only takes about 25 minutes – so you can hop in for a treatment on your lunch break. During that time, it can target problem areas of fat, including the flanks and the abdomen.

What makes SculpSure® good for your confidence?

How many hours have you spent at the gym trying to get rid of those stubborn areas of fat? Perhaps it is your midsection that never seems to get as flat as you would like. No amount of dieting and crunches can get rid of the stubborn fatty tissue along your sides. SculpSure® helps target those specific areas, removing fat cells that simply will not go away any other way.

Don't be scared off by the name. A vampire facelift can be very effective in getting rid of wrinkles, scars and other types of skin damage. Plus, it offers some amazing benefits you may not be aware of. Here are three benefits to consider.

Despite its rather unfortunate (but memorable) name, the vampire facelift is super popular, and it can offer plenty of benefits for both women and men. Vampire facelifts derive their nickname because they use injections of your own blood to stimulate natural healing, so wrinkles, creases and scars are reduced. Here’s how they work.

The vampire facelift procedure

Even though it’s called a facelift, the procedure itself isn’t surgical. Instead, it uses injections of platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, to jump-start natural healing inside your skin. During your treatment, a small amount of your blood is extracted — about the same amount of blood taken for a routine blood test. The blood is placed in a special machine that spins it rapidly, separating the platelets and the plasma (the liquid part of your blood) from the rest of your blood. The concentrated platelets are reinjected into the treatment zones in a session that typically takes less than a half-hour.

The vampire facelift gets results because it works with your body’s natural healing process to repair and regenerate. That means it can take a few weeks to a few months before you’ll see the results of your procedure. At Avante Laser and Medispa, we combine PRP with dermal fillers to gently lift and fill wrinkles, lines and scars so you can see those benefits right away.

If you’re not quite feeling yourself, it may be due to your hormones. BioTE® hormone therapy isn’t just for women in menopause. It can help anyone with a hormonal imbalance.

A hormonal imbalance can occur at any time and lead to a plethora of symptoms. If you’re feeling tired and run down, you may want to have a hormone balance assessment to see if your hormones are responsible.

It’s a new year, and at Avante Laser and MediSpa in Houston and The Woodlands, Texas, we want you to feel your best. This is why we provide BioTE® hormone therapy pellets. These pellets are custom made to meet your specific hormonal needs so you can have better health.

What are the signs of a hormonal imbalance?

Hormonal imbalances are often associated with women when they go through menopause, but women may also experience shifts in hormone levels after pregnancy. Hormonal imbalances also affect men as testosterone levels begin to decline around age 30.

Can you still pinch an inch, even though you’ve hit your goal weight? Belly fat is stubborn and no matter how hard you try, sometimes it just won’t budge. Well, if you’re ready to say goodbye to your belly fat, you may want to consider SculpSure®.

Nothing is more frustrating than being at your goal weight, or pretty darn close, and still having a little roll of fat that hangs over the waistband of your new skinny jeans. While you may think that if only you did more situps or upped the pace of your run, then maybe you’d have a trimmer midsection. But, unfortunately, some areas of fat — like the fat on the belly — just won’t budge no matter how hard you try.

At Avante Laser and MediSpa, we understand your frustration, but we have a solution. SculpSure® is a body contouring tool that can get rid of your belly fat for good and without more work from you.  

Body sculpting with SculpSure

Remember back in the day when you wished for a magical potion that could melt your fat away? Well, SculpSure may just be what you wished for. The noninvasive body sculpting tool melts fat off your body, for good. And it not only works on your stubborn belly fat, but also your love handles, saddle bags, and back fat, too. We also use SculpSure to trim the fat from underneath your chin, without surgery and without downtime.

Changes in your hormone levels can cause serious symptoms that interfere with your quality of life. BioTEⓇ pellets optimize your hormone levels so you feel like yourself again.

As women and men age, levels of reproductive hormones decline, causing seriously distressing symptoms that interfere with an optimal quality of life. Women with low estrogen may experience vaginal dryness, brain fog, hot flashes, and sleep disturbances. Men, too, can suffer the effects of diminished hormones – specifically testosterone – with diminished libido, erectile dysfunction, decreased muscle mass, and poor self-esteem. Women also produce small amounts of testosterone, and if levels drop, may experience a decreased interest in sex.

Bioidentical hormone replacement with BioTE® pellets can help women and men feel better. Our expert team here at Avante Laser and MediSpa offers the treatment. Bioidentical hormones are natural and match the makeup of the hormones your body normally produces.

The pellet is placed just under your skin, and the hormones are released slowly to balance your levels. Insertion of the pellet is done right in our office, and it’s easy and quick. You won’t need any downtime, but you may need to modify your activity and exercise for a few days afterwards.

Brushing your teeth, you notice a new wrinkle forming on your forehead. Then as you eat breakfast, you wonder when your hands started looking so worn. Don’t worry! There are non-surgical procedures available to help you battle the ravages of time.

In the past, when people thought about anti-aging treatments, they thought of surgical procedures like face lifts or breast lifts. But times have changed! If you’re looking for ways to look younger, there are several very effective, non-surgical procedures available at Avante Laser and MediSpa.

Platelet-Rich Plasma

One of the most popular treatments to combat signs of aging is the use of platelet rich plasma, or PRP. PRP uses your body’s own mechanisms to tighten your skin and build new collagen. It has been used for many years during surgery to help patients heal more quickly, and is a common treatment for arthritis pain.

As an anti-aging treatment, PRP can be used for facials, to combat wrinkles and sagging, and it can be used to stimulate hair growth, as well as several other applications.

When it comes to discussing the topic of your vaginal health it can be extremely uncomfortable and embarrassing. However, no matter how intimate and sacred it might be, your vaginal health is an important topic.

Over time, a women’s body goes through several changes. Vaginal laxity and other symptoms can develop following childbirth and menopause. Many women neglect to seek treatment for these uncomfortable symptoms because years ago intimate female rejuvenation meant surgery with knives and cutting down there and no one likes the sound of that.

Fortunately, thanks to advanced technology and science, that is no longer the case. Intimate wellness treatment can be performed without surgery and without downtime. Here’s what it can do for you! 

Tighten and Tone to Restore Vaginal Tautness

The Viveve® System is an intimate female rejuvenation treatment modality that uses radiofrequency energy to spur new collagen growth. Vaginal laxity is a result of collagen fibers becoming weakened either due being overly stretched during vaginal childbirth or a decrease in collagen production because of age and hormone imbalances. The Viveve® System uses a handheld applicator to deliver volumetric heat deep into the vaginal canal. This heat triggers the tissue to naturally heal itself by producing more collagen. The new collagen thickens the vaginal tissue to provide structure and friction, thus reducing laxity.

Vaginal laxity is a common condition plaguing women who’ve given birth vaginally. Loss of sexual function and urinary incontinence often result. Learn how to restore your sex life and how Viveve can help.

More and more women find themselves experiencing decreased sexual arousal and lubrication, reduced intensity of orgasms during sexual intercourse, and urine leakage while laughing, coughing, sneezing, or while working out. These are all symptoms of vaginal laxity, a common condition.

Vaginal laxity is nothing more than the result of, well, life. Childbearing, difficult vaginal delivery, or a large birth weight baby, changes in hormones, athletics, and even just the aging process all contribute to this common malady.

Vaginal laxity can rob you of your quality of life at any age. Your loss of sexual function can affect your relationships and even create a negative body image. You can do countless Kegels (the isometric exercise of tightening your pelvic floor and vaginal muscles), but you still must cope with the effects of vaginal laxity.

When Should I Get Hormone Replacement Therapy

Menopause affects every woman differently. Count yourself lucky if you’re among the 50% of women who never experience the woes that menopause can bring. But if menopausal symptoms are interfering with your day-to-day life, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may be an option.

When to start HRT is an individual decision you make after sitting down with your healthcare provider and discussing the benefits and risks. Every woman is different, and the right time for you may follow a different timeline than someone else. Some women wait until they’re 65, while others opt to start earlier.

If you’re considering hormone replacement therapy, here are some common scenarios where it’s beneficial.
