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.

Coolsculpting Side Effects from their website

At 1 to 2 weeks after treatment, there may be redness, bruising, and swelling; tenderness, cramping, and aching; itching, skin sensitivity, tingling, and numbness. In some cases, numbness may persist for several weeks after a treatment. Talk to your doctor if these side effects persist past 2 weeks or worsen over time.Rare side effects include:

  • Paradoxical hyperplasia: Visibly enlarged tissue volume within the treatment area, which may develop 2 to 5 months after treatment. Surgical intervention may be required.
  • Late-onset pain with a typical onset several days after a treatment and resolution within several weeks.
  • Freeze burn: First- and second-degree freeze burn may occur during treatment. It typically resolves without sequelae with proper care.
  • Vasovagal symptoms: Dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, flushing, sweating, or fainting during or immediately after the treatment.
  • Subcutaneous induration: Generalized hardness and/or discrete nodules within the treatment area, which may develop after the treatment and may present with pain and/or discomfort.
  • Hyperpigmentation: Hyperpigmentation   ( dark spots light spots) may occur after treatment. Typically, it resolves spontaneously.
  • Hernia: Treatment may cause new hernia formation or exacerbate pre existing hernia, which may require surgical repair

This is a relatively speaking new procedure, their latest updates were in 2013 vs Thermage over 15 year safety record and 7 years with Exilis

Coolsculpting vs Thermage vs Exilis

There is so much noise in the industry, I wouldnt believe anything I read.  If I was a patient I would search and read MedEsthetics or Aesthetic Magazine to read what the Doctors read and where they evaluate and discuss these treatments.  It is where I confirmed what I already understood about the differences between these procedures and why Doctor Zdinak wisely said years ago it was an inferior treatment. You will read Doctors explaining how they use Exilis, Thermage and Acoustic Wave to smooth out lumpy Coolsculpting results as part of their protocol. To make matters worse Coolsculpting just launched a 45 Million dollar advertising campaign.  You are going to see it everywhere.  So lets start with what it is and what it isnt.  It is only for killing fat cells by freezing them.  It takes three months to see how much of the frozen cells absorb and decide where to treat next (we are not sure if they reabsorb elsewhere since most people report no weight loss) and the results are so certain to be lumpy that many doctors offer Thermage Exilis or Acoustic Wave at the same time.  Coolsculpting does absolutely nothing for cellulite, texture, skin tightening, collagen or loose skin nor does it claim to.  The fact is simply freezing fat would probably create more loose skin. On the other hand Thermage, according to the Television show the doctors, resulted in 5 inches right off the table,  as well as improve texture, loose saggy skin and cellulite so we can end the whole  discussion right now and you can stop reading.  But if you like lets dive a little deeper.

Coolsculpting 3 months, Thermage results immediate,  plus continuing smoothing and tightening results for up to six months, Exilis 10 days Coolsculpting they evaluate and treat again 3 months because thats how long it takes for the frozen cells to absorb and see how lumpy you are and how much and where you need more treatment.   Thermage besides the immediate tightening (because there is an immediate tightening of the collagen that holds back the fat) there is also melting or apoptosis (cell death) but the long term effect of Thermage is as you grow more collagen you will have smoother and tighter  skin, improved texture and even an improvement in cellulite ( although we have a specific treatment for cellulite)  all the attributes of a more youthful appearance.  With Coolsculpting  imagine taking fat out of a sausage, you will be left with more loose skin.  By the way Exilis is FDA approved for non surgical fat reduction, and there is no limit to how much you can do.  Let me show you a few before and afters to demonstrate my point.  As with all before and afters everyone shows their best results, results of course will vary.  cool sculptingABOVE COOLSCULPTING This is one from coolsculpting    ( all treatment results will vary by individual)

 

BELOW EXILIS

thighs 2 inches

EXILIS TREATMENT ABOVE     ( all treatment results vary by individual naturally) Notice besides the amount of loss but the beautiful smooth texture.  Radio frequency treatments like Thermage and Exilis are for texture, and smoothing as well as fat reduction and loose skin.

Unfortunately the first coolsculpting is a little out of focus, ( maybe on purpose) we get many people who have lumps and bumps from Coolsculpting and liposuction to treat and fix what those procedures created.  Do you even need to ask why we dont offer it ?  Both Thermage and Exilis are superior in every way from cost to actual treatment time in office, as well as the time to see results, quality and quantity of results and total cost to the patient. If y0u are still sold on Coolsculpting, at least go to someone that will also price it perform it properly which includes Thermage and Exilis in the cost to smooth out the results.  Again just read MedEsthetics the Doctors who are actually trying to promote Coolsculpting admit that they use Exilis and Thermage as part of the treatment.  One doctor said since that since coolsculpting can be 2 to 4 hours that he has them come in a different day for their Thermage, otherwise they would be there for 5 hours.   Exilis we do 6 treatments for the body, but you can continue as long as you want.  Lets have another look.  Actually in New York many choose Thermage, one treatment, one hour.  In fact since we are the only Black Diamond for almost 10 years in New York we get many International  and West Coast patients since its a one time treatment.

zeltiq b & AABOVE COOLSCULPTING BEFORE AND AFTER   all treatment results will vary  This is the one in a million best result.  They claim 3 million treatments but only have 6 before and afters on their website and this is their flagship first best picture ? Its 2 months later and they also note the person lost 6 pounds.  Personally when I lose weight the first thing I see is my belly gets smaller.  The old one notch on the belt

 

Below Exilis 4 weeks

Exilis Tummy 5:16

ABOVE EXILIS AFTER 4 TREATMENTS   all treatment results will vary

This is a huge difference in 4 weeks vs Coolsculpting ( the first picture) in  2 months or more

Thermage Tummy TighteningTHERMAGE BEFORE AND AFTER   all treatment results will vary

Its almost as if the person who did the Coolsculpting came for a Thermage to fix the lumps from the coolsculpting ( by the way many patients  come to us to fix lumps and bumps from other procedures) Dont forget Thermage melts fat as well, its called apoptosis ( killing fat cells) and  it also tightens skin and improves texture, it would even help a little with cellulite too.

Exilis Tummy Before and After ladyIf you ask me the holy grail of non surgical fat loss is Exilis, there is no limit to the number of procedures you can do.  With each procedure you are not only “melting” fat but tightening skin helping with texture ( think cellulite) and building collagen which creates the smooth appearance and holds back the fat.  Dr Zdinak has a great video that explains how and why cellulite occurs.  If you watch that you will really wonder why anyone would even dream of just killing fat cells without addressing the collagen layer which is the all important layer for appearance.

Any questions ?  Feel free to call us 7 days a week 9am to 8pm.  We are happy to answer all of your questions about any procedure that we have and those that we researched  and we can explain why we chose to not have them.  We study and research every new treatment in the market place and  actually test many of them as well. If its effective safe and gets better results than what we are currently offering we would have bought it yesterday.  We were offered the right to be first in New York for many of these treatments.  In actuality we were the first in New York with Thermage NXT in 2007, first in New York with Thermage 16.0 for the body.  First in New York with the Thermage CPT tip for the face.  Dr Lisa actually lectured about the Thermage CPT in Europe at the AMWC Aesthetic & Anti-aging Medicine World Congress The world’s largest event for Global Aging Management attended by over 5000 physicians from all over the world ( only a handful from the United States)  In fact that is where we discovered Exilis and brought the first one to New York.  It is the most popular treatment in Europe.  Its hard to be honest and make comparisons without sounding like you are trashing the competition.  Lets put it this way there are almost a half a dozen treatments we were offered to be the first in New York with that I can proudly say we dodged a bullet by avoiding those machines completely. Some have fallen out of favor, some are not even offered any more the rest we shall see.  Coolsculpting will probably  stay with us if no real adverse events like nerve damage or some other adverse events or damage created by freezing is discovered and they keep advertising 50 million a year.  Thermage has the longest safety record, its been on the market for around 15 years  Coolsculpting around 5 years originally introduced in 2011 couple of rounds of financing and improvements around 2013.  Its not even close to being the best treatment for non surgical body shaping however their marketing is brilliant and overwhelming the market this year.  There are 2 other reasons that they might fall out of favor.  The first is reality.  In speaking to prospective new patients, many have said they did the research and simply read that it does nothing for skin texture laxity sagging skin and they realized it would not be a good choice. The second reason is Coolsculpting might be a victim of their own success.  I have spoken to many people who know someone who came out lumpy, so they might actually get to the point where everyone knows the fact that it does nothing for the all important collagen layer, skin texture or loose saggy skin.  Kinda wish I had one, there are almost a million searches for it every month on Google alone But what would we do with it when the patients come in and we explain what each treatment does and doesnt do ? Actually if they even carefully read the  Coolsculpting website they would see that even that even Coolsculpting doesnt claim that it does anything but freeze fat. No one will choose it. 🙂 Thats an expensive paperweight.  Plus I think with common sense patients will understand what it doesnt do and its immoral to try to cash in on something that is not the best treatment that you can offer someone and worse yet forces them into another treatment.

Cellulite Curbside Consult With Dr. Lisa

96% of women have cellulite.  Men only have one layer of fat. Women have three layers of fat. Women’s fat are held together by what appears like a cob web.
Once estrogen begin to circulate through the body as we go through puberty the cellulite can become obvious.

Even professional athletes whom have been able to lower their body fat to extremes often will still have persistent cellulite because of estrogen.

Dr. Lisa recommends the following procedures for your cellulite:

Another tool not mentioned in the video is Acoustic Wave for de-dimpling.

Skin tightening
Laser skin tightening is a minimally invasive, non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source (a laser) to tighten skin by heating the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract (tighten). persistent subcutaneous fat causing dimpling of the skin, especially on women’s hips and thighs. Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It is most noticeable on the buttocks and thighs, and usually occurs after puberty.

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.
