Maintaining a healthy weight throughout life can be easier said than done, particularly when women hit the 40s or 50s and the metabolism starts to slow down. It may take a bit of help to keep those pounds from creeping up and if they do, you will likely want an effective program to lose the weight and restore your slimmer physique. At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we are committed to helping you look and feel your best at every stage of life. With a proven weight loss plan and countless options in body contouring, you can rest assured you will be in good hands with the professional team at Dermacare.
We offer weight loss and lifestyle coaching for our female patients through our DC Lifestyle program. This comprehensive plan includes diet, personal health coaching and adoption of the “Habits of Health” to sustain a healthy weight and a healthy lifestyle. By combining all of these components into a single program, you can successfully shed the extra pounds while achieving a higher level of health overall.
Dr. Birchall encourages his patients to use the Take Shape for Life program because he has seen firsthand how well the program works. He used the same plan to shed 40 pounds and keep the weight off. He now coaches his patients on the Take Shape for Life® program to help them achieve positive results as well.
Even when you manage to reach your weight loss goals, you may find there are still stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to your diet and exercise efforts. In these situations, we also offer a variety of body contouring treatments to eliminate those fat deposits and create a smoother body contour. Treatment options at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics include:
This non-surgical method of body sculpting uses controlled cooling to eliminate unwanted fat cells. Because fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells in the body, this treatment effectively destroys the fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue and skin. Results from a CoolSculpting treatment are seen in the weeks and months following the procedure.
Laser-assisted liposuction is a less invasive way to remove unwanted areas of fat than traditional liposuction techniques. This procedure inserts a small tube into the fat deposit, which delivers laser energy to liquefy the fat cells for easier removal. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia and patients are generally back to their regular routines within a couple of days. The treatment can be used on nearly any area of the body in need of sculpting, offering smooth, natural results.
This revolutionary procedure uses thermal energy to destroy fat cells in the treatment area, slimming and smoothing the body contour. A laser is used to provide the controlled heating, which addresses the fat without damaging surrounding tissue. The treated fat cells are eliminated gradually through the natural processes of the body, creating natural results in around six weeks. SculpSure can be performed using local anesthetic and the treatments take just 35 minutes to complete. There is no downtime after the procedure.
Although cellulite isn’t a fat-related problem, it can mar the results of your weight loss efforts by leaving that unsightly cottage cheese appearance behind on the skin. Cellulaze is an effective treatment for cellulite because it treats the problem at the source – the constricted fibrous bands that lead to the dimpled look. Cellulaze delivers energy underneath the surface of the skin to release those bands and create a smoother appearance. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and most patients are back to work and other activities within one to two weeks.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could take unwanted fat from unwanted areas of the body and move it to other areas where you would like a bit of fullness? Now that desire is a reality, thanks to innovations in the fat transfer process.
Dr. Birchall uses laser-assisted liposuction to remove fat cells from areas like the midsection, back or hips. He can then harvest the fat and inject it back into the breasts or buttocks to add the curves you are lacking. This procedure offers numerous benefits over standard augmentation procedures, including the trimming of one area of the body and the lack of incisions in the augmentation area. Most patients find fat transfer offers natural results that last as long as synthetic implants in most cases.
