According to Wikipedia Casual Dining is:

A casual dining restaurant is a restaurant that serves moderately-priced food in a casual atmosphere. Except for buffet-style restaurants, casual dining restaurants typically provide table service. Casual dining comprises a market segment between fast food establishments and fine dining restaurants. Casual dining restaurants often have a full bar with separate bar staff, a larger beer menu and a limited wine menu. They are frequently, but not necessarily, part of a wider chain, particularly in the United States. In Italy, such casual restaurants are often called “trattoria,” and are usually independently owned and operated.
Family style

Family style restaurants are a type of casual dining restaurants where food is often served on platters and the diners serve themselves. Typically, alcoholic beverages are not sold at family-style casual dining restaurants.
Fine dining

Fine dining restaurants are full service restaurants with specific dedicated meal courses. Décor of such restaurants feature higher-quality materials, with an eye towards the “atmosphere” desired by the restauranteur, than restaurants featuring lower-quality materials. The wait staff is usually highly trained and often wears more formal attire. Fine-dining restaurants are almost always small businesses and are generally either single-location operations or have just a few locations. Food portions are visually appealing. Fine dining restaurants have certain rules of dining which visitors are generally expected to follow often including a dress code.

The Orlando area in Florida has an eclectic nightlife.  Curiously close to the second home and retirement meca Winter Garden and Winderemere Homes. Sun City Arizona has many quaint establishments for eating for the retired homeowners while Scottsdale enjoys a bit more of an upscale vibe amongst its homeowners. Many home owners enjoy a more quiet vibe. While the South Bay of Los  Angeles there is more an eclectic beach atmosphere for residents to enjoy.

Up the 405 and 110 freeways a tad is Ventura California. Which is less vibrant than the South Bay but still maintains that laid back surfer dude feel.

In the Florida Keys is a little Key called Conch that has a few very unique eateries made for the traveler. While many prefer to eat the fish they caught off their rented boats.

The Chicago scene is plenty busy as the night life is plentiful below the towers, apartments and condos above. Zagat is calling Vie the number 2 restaurant in ChiTown and Katsu number 1.

City dwellers say this Western Springs New American is “worth the travel” to the ‘burbs for Paul Virant’s “exceptional” New American cooking that showcases “the season’s best” ingredients in “outstanding” “fine-dining” dishes; the space is “warm and inviting but still elegant”, and “impeccable” service further justifies the spendy tabs.

Of course there is nothing like a great meal overlooking the blue Pacific or in the old town Gas Lamp area of San Diego.

Vitamins Infused into Skin by Lasers

Skin Tightening and body contour

In a study published in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine (March 2016), Jill Waibel, MD, et al, investigated whether laser-assisted delivery of vitamins C and E plus ferulic acid immediately following fractional ablative laser treatments would improve wound healing. Their secondary objectives were to evaluate the potential molecular markers involved in that wound-healing process.

Dr. Waibel, et al, concluded that use of the antioxidant serum correlated with more rapid healing after fractional ablative laser treatments and that “elevated bFGF could be involved in the Vitamin C, E, and Ferulic acid-induced rapid wound healing.”

On Skin Tightening Choices

Eavesdrop on a Cosmetic Consult

If you use your knowledge common sense and actually look at the before and afters with a really keen or discerning eye you’ll understand what I’m saying makes total sense. There are three or four different technologies out there.

Radio frequency started out in 2002 with Thermage to date they’ve
done over 1 million procedures at around 2000 locations. So that is clearly the safest and the longest record five or six years later came Exilis also radiofrequency but no consumables requiring up to six treatments for the body and four for the face.

Thermage requires only one treatment whether it’s the face or the body. Both of these come out very smooth in fact they are used for smoothing and to reduce lumps or for loose skin and they are
even used after liposuction to clean up the lumps.

So look at the before and after’s for cool sculpting or Zeltique ( brand name) and then look at the ones for Thermage. Cool sculpting is great if you have a lot of fat. By nature you’re killing a bunch of fat cells so the results are going to be kind of unknown and if you think about it logically you almost have to be leftover with some loose skin if not in addition to
some lumpiness as well.

Many people report that their girlfriends did Zeltique or cool sculpting and in the conversation about Thermage they said no don’t worry about that forget about that I’m not even considering it because my girlfriend came out lumpy.

There is also Zerona or Cold Laser- Forget about that ours is
collecting dust it’s not worth offering an inferior procedure I’d rather keep paying for it and let it collect dust our particular model is the Illumiwave lipo contour which is 20 times stronger than the Zerona same wavelength 635 nm but even ours doesn’t get any results.

Call anytime and as far as FDA approval is concerned Thermage is more for loose skin Exilis is actually approved for nonsurgical fat reduction Exilis before and afters, cool sculpting before and afters and I am guessing your starting point is their ” after ” picture ….and of course there are millions more on the internet.

There are thousands more you can find,I can send you hundreds more before and afters and we do study and test these machines all the time we were signed up to be the first ulthera in NY
and of course tested Zeltique and constantly talk to the manufacturers of these machines thats all we do.

What you will find in common or see in retrospect is Exilis is great for a few lumps or for a great amount of fat, whichever your results will be smooth Thermage is more or less for someone who has ” lost the weight already” and has loose skin. Fat freezing has done a great job marketing and can remove a great deal of fat in one session but you are killing the fat cells so logically you should land up with loose skin.

Also radio frequency is completely different you are affecting the collagen layer so there is an immediate tightening of the collagen that holds back the fat with Exilis normally 6 sessions for the body but you can keep going you will not see results till the 4th treatment.

I had a dear friend complaining but sure enough after the 4, 5, 6th session she went on to do 3 more body parts. Thermage is much stronger only requires one treatment but its so strong that
it causes you to grow more collagen beginning at 3 months so from 3 to 6 months there is a secondary affect where the skin firms up and smooths out even more. Although we have seen a few inches right off the table as well.Skin Tightening

Thermage is much more expensive and has consumables. Make sure the person is listed on thermage.com with Black Diamond or Pinnacle award, that means they are experienced and are buying $15,000 a month in consumables more important
now than ever.

I get calls every day from Chinese companies offering
bootleg tips for $25 vs $900 ( one time use) these are calibrated to the micron to get the right amount of energy to the area, and of course you want someone who knows how many pulses to apply at what temperature.

Another clue is Exilis feels like a warm stone massage. Thermage has to be hot enough to give you an effective treatment. We give everyone a percocet in order to allow us to give them an effective treatment. If they say they dont do that, They have never turned the machine up high enough to give a person an effective treatment.

We get people all the times who were getting ok, or so so treatments elsewhere. On the other hand if they say anesthesia,
run out the door fast! You can easily get a 3rd degree
burn if you are not getting feedback. I have only see that anecdotally.

Effective Skin Creme? Obagi is Here!

obaji 15%

We recommend everyone start with 10% regardless of what percentage they have used in the past.  Obagi is formulated for maximum penetration.  Many perceive Obagi 10% stronger than their previous brand.  A slight tingling may occur in some people, which will diminish with continued use.

Obagi Professional-C Serum is available in three concentrations

20% – Obagi For the highest concentration on L-Ascorbic Acid

15% – Obagi For all skin types

10% -Obagi  For dry, sensitive or reactive skin

DIRECTIONS

Apply 5 to 7 drops of Obagi Professional-C Serum to the face, neck and chest using fingertips until completely absorbed.  Apply to cleansed skin in the morning before sunscreen and makeup application.

BENEFITS

Obagi Professional-C Serum uses stabilized ascorbic acid – the only form of Vitamin C that can be effectively absorbed by the skin.
Obagi Professional-C Serum provides superior antioxidant protection by fast acting deep penetration to the dermal layer that will not wash off.  The L-ascorbic acid helps to defend against damaging UVA and UVB rays, attacks free oxygen radicals, prevents premature signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, protects against future damage, and contributes to collagen synthesis.

Incorporate Obagi C-Serum into a daily skin care regimen to help achieve the look of bright, smooth, youthful looking skin, diminish hyper pigmentation and encourages the growth of collagen.  Hyaluronic acid binds moisture to your skin to prevent dryness.
