Top Minimally Invasive Body Sculpting Procedures

You want to sculpt your body, but you don’t want the downtime that goes along with more invasive treatments. Freeze fat? Burn fat? Laser? When it comes to less invasive body sculpting, there are many options. Would you like to know which one is the best option out there with little to no recovery time required?

Cellfina™

The Cellfina™ System offers a way to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite—those connective bands woven throughout fat in your thighs and buttocks. It is these tight bands that pull down on your skin, creating the puckering effect you tend to see on the surface of the skin. Once these bands are released, then the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out in as little as three days.

This is the very first long-lasting, minimally invasive solution proven to smooth away dimples for at least two years in a single treatment, and it is the only FDA-cleared, minimally invasive, one-time procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years. This makes it the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. Cellfina™ combines highly advanced, proprietary technology with a well-established procedure, to treat the primary cause of cellulite.

Ultherapy®

But what about a way to lift or tighten the skin on your face? The development of Ultherapy® allows your skin to be tightened without having to resort to surgery. Ultherapy® is a non-invasive, non- surgical procedure for the face that uses ultrasound and the body’s natural healing process. Ultherapy® is the natural choice for a nonsurgical way to lift, tone and tighten your skin using safe, time-tested technology.

Ultherapy® will encourage your body to produce collagen as it begins to diminish, which slows the process of aging and delays the onset of wrinkles and sagging skin.

Dramatically tighten your skin, and restore your natural collagen with Ultherapy® treatments from Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, because as we grow older, your collagen production just decreases naturally, which leads to wrinkles, loss of volume and sagging skin in various areas. Swapping out the scalpel of more invasive methods for an ultrasound wand, this technique harnesses heat produced by precisely targeted sonic waves to startle slacking collagen into rebuilding, which in turn tightens and lifts skin and underlying tissues. Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure that is FDA-cleared to lift skin on your neck, under your chin, and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy® can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest!

So no matter whether you want your skin to be tightened without having to resort to surgery by having Dr. Carp then perform an Ultherapy® lift that transmits ultrasonic waves to the deepest layers of your skin, where they start to tone and tighten the skin almost instantaneously, or if you want to learn more about Cellfina™, a non-invasive approach to tackling cellulite, just contact Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center today and set up your complimentary consultation!



Why Choose Prescription Weight Loss?

Let’s face it, losing the weight is important. And sometimes the best way to go for effective weight loss treatment is to choose prescription weight loss from Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center. Give yourself the best odds possible when it comes to maximizing your chances of losing unwanted pounds. Weighing too much and not being able to successfully lose the weight by diet and exercise alone can quite quickly become a medical problem, which is why addressing this medical problem with the help of a physician such as Dr. Carp is a smart solution to the issue of weight loss.

So what is prescription weight loss?

If you are overweight or obese with any health condition, beginning a weight loss or exercise program is important. Losing weight will certainly make you look and feel your best, but in addition to these obviously great cosmetic benefits, a significant decrease in your body fat has many health benefits.

By losing weight you are lowering your risk of hypertension (high blood pressure) and diabetes (especially Type 2), hyperlipidemia (elevated cholesterol or Triglycerides), hardening of the arteries, arthritis, cancer (breast, colon and many other forms of cancer), chronic lung disease, asthma, and sleep apnea, among multiple other health ailments that can be brought on by being overweight.

So why choose prescription weight loss?

First, it is important to know that prescription weight loss won’t replace diet and exercise, as prescription weight loss drugs only work as part of an overall health-focused approach to losing the weight. Prescription weight loss treatments are sometimes prescribed to a patient as an additional tool in the toolbox of possible treatments for weight loss. At Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, we develop a customized program that combines a personalized medication treatment program, along with a plan for lower fat and lower calorie foods, as well as a regular exercise program.

By working with Dr. Carp, you can enjoy a program curated to your unique needs, with a prescription weight loss strategy that focuses on appetite suppressant, so that your body’s natural physiological reaction to changes in diet and exercise are maximized.

Your body is unique, and so are your needs, and with physician supervised weight loss at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, you can get the benefits of a customized prescription weight loss approach that really delivers results. Lose the pounds you don’t want anymore, and make this the start of a new, slimmer you. Contact us today to learn more about prescription weight loss and how you can finally really reach your weight loss goals. You’ll be glad you did!



Does Cellfina™ really work?

Ugh! Cottage cheese skin! Do you hate the dimpling on the back of your legs and thighs? Is the unappealing sight of cellulite getting you down? Do you have bands of cellulite on your skin that won’t respond to diet or exercise? Do you wish you could be released from the problem of cellulite? Do you dream of wearing certain clothes again, such as white pants or tight-fitting yoga pants, or your favorite bikini? Cellulite is a condition which makes the skin on the rear end and the backs of the thighs appear bumpy and dimpled, affecting more than 85 percent of adult women, women just like you.

These fibrous bands of connective tissue that pull on the skin from the fat below plague many women, often regardless of age or physical fitness, although heavier women are more prone to problems due to their skin puckering up from bands of cellulite. For those women with the all-too-common lumps and bumps of cellulite, wearing a bathing suit or shorts in public can easily make you feel self-conscious or embarrassed, and as a result, your quality of life is sadly diminished.

But there is hope, and now you can turn to the experts at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center for a life changing treatment called Cellfina™. Cellfina™, a new cosmetic procedure first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2014, makes it easier than ever to fix the problem of cellulite.

Cellfina™ is a minimally invasive procedure that is approved for treating dimpled cellulite found on the rear end, the back of your thighs and the outer thighs. Cellfina™ targets the architecture of cellulite itself, clearing the area for a smooth, silky appearance.

This minimally invasive treatment is approved for treating dimpled cellulite, and the procedure is safe because it’s designed to tackle cellulite’s underlying causes to produce a real improvement in the appearance of dimpled skin.

The hour-long Cellfina™ procedure, which is simple and straightforward, begins with having your dimples marked by Dr. Carp, and then a device is used to inject an anesthetic to numb the treatment area. Then, the same device is used to attach a suction cup to your dimpled skin in order to stabilize it, and Dr. Carp then inserts a tiny needle into your skin to cut the fibrous bands of connective tissue. After you’re done, you’ll be advised to wear Spanx or a similar compression garment every day for a week following the procedure, and best of all, there is no downtime or recovery.

Dr. Carp advises patients to give the treated area about two to three months before expecting to see improvements from the procedure, but many women have told him that they can see a difference in their skin within a week, provided they don’t have much swelling or bruising post-treatment.

A clinical study of the first 55 women to undergo the Cellfina™ procedure showed that 99 percent of them had improvements in the appearance of their cellulite and produced a 94 percent satisfaction rate one year after the treatment. Would you like to see satisfying improvements in your cellulite? Contact us now to see what Cellfina™ from Carp Cosmetic can do for you!

 



How Does Femilift™ Work and Does it Last?

Close-up of partial body in waterHere at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, we have incorporated Femilift™ into our practice, and we have to admit that we have been very, very happy with the results our patients are reporting. They are feeling tighter with improved friction during intercourse, and issues of urinary incontinence significantly addressed, thanks to the Femilift™ machine, which is safe, easy, and with no downtime for patients, and best of all, it really works. And not only does it work, but with proper Femilift™ treatment from Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, the results you enjoy can last for a surprisingly long time.

Femilift™ is a nonsurgical laser procedure that treats the skin of the vaginal canal, using the same technology of fractional laser skin peeling used for your face, but with a device specifically designed for feminine intimacy needs. Laser vaginal tightening is actually laser vaginal skin tightening, and it’s helpful when the vagina loosens after childbirth, as it is designed to provide a mild shrink to the vaginal tissue.

Most patients at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center really appreciate vaginal tightening with Femilift™, particularly after their 2nd or 3rd treatment session, although some patients report great results even after their first treatment, and we have had a 100% patient satisfaction rate to date among our patients treated. (At Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, we have also paired FemiLift™ with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections, also known as the O-Shot® that we sometimes administer after the FemiLift treatment for an added boost.)

When the vagina loosens after childbirth, Femilift™ works to treat the mucosa (internal pink skin) of the vaginal canal, improving sexual sensitivity, urinary incontinence, as well as improving vaginal dryness. Since Femilift™ is a laser, non-incisional treatment that treats the vaginal mucosa circumferentially by C02 laser it is rare to feel discomfort and the downtime is minimal, if any, afterwards.

Many women who struggle with vaginal laxity, recurrent infections and even urinary incontinence tend to live with their ailments rather than treating them. Even with 1 in 3 women affected after childbirth, female incontinence is rarely spoken about, but fortunately, there is now a pain-free solution for restoring the vagina to its optimal state, and there is no downtime whatsoever associated with the treatment. Femilift™ is helping! Rejuvenate your sex life! Learn more about how the Femilift™ procedure works by setting up your consultation now at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center. Get increased sensation and more natural lubrication, enhanced bladder control, no more painful intercourse, fewer recurrent infections, a tighter-feeling vagina, and enhanced sexual pleasure for both yourself, and your partner.

The CO2 fractionated laser technology has an excellent patient satisfaction rate, with many women reporting increased sensitivity in the vagina, improved bladder control, and enhanced sexual gratification. But best of all, Femilift™ is not a quick fix, but rather a way for you to experience sustained improvements over a relatively long period of time. Contact us today, and set up your consultation for Femilift™, and take the first step towards a younger, sexier, and more sensually empowered you!



Top Facts About the O-Shot

Would you like to have stronger and more frequent orgasms? How about an increased sexual desire, and improved clitoral stimulation during intercourse? Would you like to have a tighter vaginal opening? Would an all-natural way to reduce the symptoms of stress incontinence without prescription drugs or surgical procedures appeal to you?

Maybe it’s time for you to think about enjoying the marvelous benefits of the O-Shot®. Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center wants to introduce you to this breakthrough, clinically-proven, safe and effective procedure designed to help you increase stimulation, lubrication, and overall sexual wellness, without the use of any drugs or surgery.

The O-Shot® is just such a treatment, and it’s available now from Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center. The O-Shot® has been seen on the cover of many magazines thanks to its revolutionary benefits, including Cosmopolitan Magazine and others, and in addition, the O-Shot has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show and numerous other media outlets. In fact, it has become so popular among the celebrity class that the O-Shot® was even part of the ultra-exclusive celebrity “goodie bags,” given out at the 2014 and 2015 Academy Awards.

So you may be asking yourself, with all this hype, what exactly is the O-Shot®? The “O” in O-Shot® stands for “orgasm,” and the orgasm shot, or O-Shot®, improves your ability to achieve a more satisfying orgasm, plus a whole lot more. The O-Shot® is also described as a “vaginal rejuvenation” technique because it returns the vagina to a more youthful look and feel, giving you back the sexy, youthful vaginal sensations and skin tissue that you used to have.

There’s a reason why they call it revolutionary because the upshot is that the O-Shot® does all of this by using your body’s own natural healing ability to quickly and effectively improve lubrication and arousal while increasing your libido and pleasure sensations, all with no surgery or downtime!

By now the O-Shot® has been used literally by thousands of women, from stars and celebrities to regular people who just want more out of life, and are looking for a way to safely and effectively improve their sex lives. Because the O-Shot® uses the medically proven cutting edge scientific technique of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy, it gets you great results that last and last, the natural way.

PRP, the science behind the O-Shot®, involves separating the healing or “growth factors” in your blood from your actual blood cells and then re-injecting that super-charged plasma right back into your body where it has extremely potent effects.

Why get the O-Shot®? With the O-Shot® you will experience longer, better, and more powerful orgasms, in addition to experiencing increased sexual stimulation, and vaginal tissue that both looks and feels better, and you may even improve incontinence issues and urinary function!

So how does the O-Shot® work? As in all PRP procedures the O-Shot® procedure starts with drawing a few vials of blood, just as in any simple blood test. Then the plasma containing the PRP is separated from the red and white blood cells using a centrifuge, and it is then administered back to your body. It is that simple and that easy. But the results are amazing!

The best way to understand the O-Shot® is by recognizing that it is a kind of advanced stem cell therapy, as the undifferentiated stem cells in the PRP stimulate other cells to produce new cells in and around your O-Shot injection sites. In the areas around the O-Shot® injections, we typically tend to see increased production of new cells, the repair of damaged cells, and an improved longevity of existing cells — all of which contribute to your overall vaginal rejuvenation!

The key to success with the O-Shot® is increased blood flow to the vaginal areas. In addition to the other healing factors in the O-Shot®, it gets right to work to increase blood flow to your vaginal area, resulting in smoother, healthier, skin on the lips of the vagina, a tighter opening, increased natural lubrication, improved libido, and an overall more youthful appearance.

And nothing could be simpler than undergoing the O-Shot® procedure. It can be accomplished in less than 15 minutes and is delivered with virtually no pain or discomfort, in addition to being drug, chemical, and surgery free! It requires little or no downtime, and the amazing results can be effective for up to one year. Let the O-Shot® help you return to the best sex of your life. Enjoy stronger and more frequent orgasms, increased sexual desire, and improved clitoral stimulation, a tighter vaginal opening, and an all-natural way to reduce the symptoms of stress incontinence without prescription drugs or surgical procedures. Let Carp Cosmetic introduce you to a breakthrough, clinically-proven, safe and effective procedure to help you increase stimulation, lubrication, and overall sexual wellness, without the use of any drugs or surgery.

What is Femilift™ and Am I a Candidate?

Do you occasionally suffer from symptoms of mild urinary stress incontinence, such as leaking urine upon coughing, sneezing, or exercising, among other activities, but at the same time do you really want to avoid all of the hassles of a surgical procedure? Or are you a woman who has some vaginal looseness, which may diminish the experience of sexual pleasure for you or your partner? As women age, we tend to lose collagen and elastin, both outside of our bodies, as well as inside. For our vaginal tissue, this may be compounded as a result of hormonal changes, vaginal childbirth, and menopause.

Do you wonder if FemiLift™ is right for you? Are you experiencing vaginal laxity, or involuntary leakage of urine, vaginal dryness, uncomfortable sensations during intercourse or other symptoms of menopause or hormonal issues? Femilift™ is non-surgical, and most women will typically experience a significantly improved sexual experience after their treatments, along with experiencing increased vaginal lubrication and a noticeable improvement in urinary incontinence.

So what can you expect with FemiLift™ from Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center? How about rapid results with no recovery or downtime, in a virtually painless, minimally invasive treatment resulting in reduced symptoms of urinary incontinence, a tighter, rejuvenated vagina, along with increased vaginal lubrication and enhanced sexual pleasure for both partners, not to mention an improved body image and a boost for your self-confidence!

The FemiLift™ procedure at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center is a non-invasive, painless procedure, a gentle treatment for controlled safety and accuracy, thanks to the ability to achieve maximum precision with the Femilift™ laser. Since there is no recovery time, most patients are able to return to their normal activities on the same day, following their quick 10-15 minute procedure. Femilift™ has an excellent patient satisfaction record and long-term success at being highly effective in reversing the atrophic effects of aging in the vagina, and many patients see excellent results after their very first treatment, although three treatments over 12 weeks are recommended for optimal outcomes.

How does it work? The FemiLift™ laser works by creating minor channels of thermal stimulation in the vaginal canal. By stimulating the cells in your body that are responsible for the development of collagen and elastin. As a result, more collagen and elastin are produced which leads to thicker tissue in your vaginal canal, in turn increasing pressure on your urethra and adjacent structures, which helps with urinary stress incontinence. And from a quality of life perspective, the result is a tighter vagina that creates more sensation for both partners during intercourse, and your younger, healthier vaginal tissue can help to restore your vagina to its original appearance.

One of the best features of Femilift™ is that it is not painful, and while you may experience some sensation during the procedure, it is not that uncomfortable, and most patients find it more comfortable than a standard pap smear.

At Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, we specialize in non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation using a state-of-the-art laser to treat stress urinary incontinence and vaginal dryness with Femilift™. Don’t delay, contact us today to set up your Femilift™ consultation!



Sun Safety and Preventing Skin Cancer

As the summer months are in full swing, it cannot be stressed enough that sun safety should be of utmost importance when spending any time under the UV rays. According to a report made by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), one American dies every hour from skin cancer. Among the most common cancers, skin cancer can be prevented just by picking up one healthy habit – lathering on sunscreen before heading out for the day.

It is crucial before going to the beach or heading out to that barbeque to be proactive about your skin’s health.

To help to protect yourself from the sun and help prevent cancer, consider some of these safety tips:

  • Lather it up with some sunscreen: Use a sunblock with at least an SPF-30 before going out in the sun. Also, make sure your sunscreen has UVB and UVA protection.
  • Cover up: Put on a shirt, hat, and/or sunglasses to protect parts of the body that are more prone to sunburn.
  • Relax in the shade: During the sun’s peak hours (typically between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.) periodically take a break from the sun in the shade.
  • Check the UV index: Before making any outdoors plans, you can check the UV index to find out which times pose the most risk for overexposure to the sun.

Following these simple habits can help protect your skin from sun as well as prevent health risks, such as melanoma.

It is especially important to prevent sunburn, which is the leading cause of skin cancer and premature aging. If you are to get a sunburn, use fresh aloe or cool tea compresses to reduce pain and to prevent peeling.
