Seeking Sexy Legs?

Do you dream of shapely legs? You are not alone. Men and women in gyms across the country climb endless flights of stairs, do countless lunges and leg-press hundreds of pounds in hopes of getting slim and sexy legs. While exercising can help to shape the legs and tone and build muscle, some people experience spots of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter how often they go to the gym. Don't get discouraged - there's still hope. It's called SmartLipo.

Why Can't I Get Rid of Stubborn Leg Fat?
There are a few reasons why you can't get rid of stubborn leg fat through exercise or a healthy diet. Genetics, diet and stress all play a role in why your body holds on to fat. Women also tend to hold on to fat more readily than men because fat and fertility have a relationship: When you lose too much fat, your body could stop menstruation. To prevent the early onset of menopause, your body holds on to extra fat, especially in the thighs.

The Best Cosmetic Procedures For Legs, Arms, Body Fat, & Skin Tightening


Do you like to feel confident donning swimwear like the guys and gals in the “Beach Blanket Bingo” movie? If you’re losing your breath on the treadmill and you’re still not getting rid of unwanted fat, then it is time to consider the fat removal procedures at Innovations Medical. In this video, Dr. Bill Johnson of Innovations Medical will discuss how you can get that confidence back and feel great wearing whatever you want.

The reason why some people avoid wearing sleeveless shirts or shorts is because they feel that their arms and legs don’t look good. It can either be the shape of the area or the texture of the skin. For arms with crepey appearance or loose skin, thermage is the best go-to procedure. It uses radio frequency energy to tighten loose skin without the need for surgery. Some immediate skin tightening will happen and after 3 to 6 months, the collagen will shrink further. This results to more skin tightening. For saggy arms or “batwing” issues, SmartLipo will not only take care of fat removal, but tighten your skin as well. This is because of the collagen remodeling that happens after the procedure. There is very little downtime for this and you can go home the same day.

Getting Swimsuit Ready


Say hello to summer and endless sunbathing on the beach. Wearing a swimsuit, for some, takes a lot of courage and coaxing though. Because even if we’re eager to hit the beach, being in a swimsuit shows all your defects - stomach, thighs, arms, and other areas where you don’t have enough shape. In this video, Dr. Johnson explains the various procedures that Innovations Medical offers to make your body swimsuit ready.

First on the list is thermage, which uses radio frequency energy to tighten loose skin without surgery. The tool used creates heat in your tissue and shrinks the collagen, which tightens your skin real time. About 80% of patients see tighter and smoother skin right after the procedure. What’s even better is the further skin tightening effect, which happens 3 to 6 months after the procedure. If you decide to undergo this procedure, there’s no downtime and you can go home the same day.

Stomach Procedures To Get You Summer Ready


From sexy bikinis and belly shirts, to sleeveless dresses and cropped blouses, these outfits will make sure you’re comfortable and smoking hot during the summer season. But are you confident enough to bare your stomach? If you have a little bit of wrinkling or need some serious shaping, Innovations Medical has the right procedure for you and this video will tell you all about it.

Using a thermometer-like scale, Dr. Johnson starts with the most non-invasive procedure for people that needs just a little bit of help. For wrinkling and a little bit of droopiness, Thermage is a great go-to process. It uses radio frequency energy to tighten loose skin without the need for surgery. Some instant tightening will be noticed right after the procedure, but the benefits will continue months after. Because of the heating, three to four times more collagen will be produced and these will mature after three to six months. It will cause further skin tightening or collagen remodeling. There’s also no downtime so you can just go back to work the next day.

The Best Liposuction Device To Use


With recent innovations in liposuction and more people attesting to the safeness of this procedure, it has gained a lot of following. But what is really going inside your body during the fat removal process? In this video, Dr. Johnson explains the liposuction procedure at Innovations Medical.

During the suctioning of the fat, not all of it is removed from the area. They are kind of like “Swiss-cheesing it,” as Dr. J puts it. Small holes are done in the area to remove the fat, but the connecting tissues that support the fat is left behind. This is a good thing, because this is what makes the tissue and skin healthy.
