Market Report: InMode, Manufacturer of BodyTite Looking Bullish

According to a recent Yahoo news report, InMode Ltd., a leading global provider of innovative and award-winning medical technologies, looks bullish in markets and has grown 15% from its Initial Public Offering (IPO) base in August.  The report says that IPOs are typically volatile, and it is worth waiting so they have a significant amount of history. A few other new issues out there are not performing quite as well, but InMode is in the medical sector, and is experiencing amazing earnings and sales growth. Some of the other medical device companies are also performing well.

As reported by Bloomberg, newly public InMode Ltd’s shares soared 25% on August 14, 2019. The company had announced the international pop icon Paula Abdul as a brand ambassador for its alternatives to cosmetic surgery, and this may be a major reason for the increased interest in InMode. Paula Abdul had agreed to join the Skin-Tightening Company as their brand ambassador to share her positive experience with the company’s innovative technologies. From the Yahoo report, we can infer that InMode’s collaboration with pop icon Paula Abdul has definitely proved beneficial to the company, because InMode came public only recently in a $14 IPO.

Another report from Streetwise says the shares of InMode rose 25% even as the broader stock market dropped. According to them, InMode Ltd reported their second quarter earnings for the period ending June 30, 2019. In a separate release, InMode also announced the appointment of pop icon Paula Abdul as a brand ambassador which attracted a lot of public attention. The company reported

  • Record revenue of $38.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, an increase of 55% over 2018 2nd quarter
  • Net income of $15.8 billion or $0.45 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $7.6 million or $0.21 per diluted share in Q2/18 (apart from noticeable improvements in gross margins and operating margins)
  • A total cash position of $82.8 million including cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities and deposits, excluding the $70 million proceeds raised in InMode’s IPO.

This medical technology company is a leading global provider of innovative, energy-based solutions that offer cutting edge medical devices for minimally-invasive and non-invasive procedures. They provide amazing results for the patient and the practice. InMode’s technological advancements began over two decades ago with state-of-the-art light, laser, and radiofrequency devices invented by leading doctors and scientists, who essentially launched and shaped the industry. Their technology continues that legacy to provide superior satisfaction for both the patient and the practice. InMode’s CEO and chairman Moshe Mizrahy said that they were pleased with their second quarter results that are consistent with both their reported expectations and the positive trends they were continuing to see in their business.

Paula Abdul underwent treatment using InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite technology for her arm and lower face as an alternative to traditional cosmetic surgery. Plastic surgeon Spero Theodorou MD of bodySCULPT in NYC and InMode’s Chief Medical Officer who is responsible for the development of all InMode procedures, clinical studies and training, discussed the choice. He said, “Paula is an excellent candidate for InMode’s innovative technology using Radio-Frequency (RF) to provide a natural tighter appearance. She exercised regularly, was healthy but had some areas that troubled her due to past injuries and the effects of aging.”

Excited by her results, Paula wants to share what the BodyTite/FaceTite procedure did for her and can do for others. She is happy to be InMode’s brand ambassador because she has experienced good results with the company’s treatments that enabled her to restore a sleeker, more youthful look without invasive surgery and general anesthesia.

Leading NYC plastic surgeons Drs. Spero Theodorou and Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT in NYC are inventors of BodyTite on Arms, a Scarless arm lift surgery in NYC is an innovative technique used to enhance the contour of your arms under local anesthesia to tighten and remove the excess skin under the arms, without leaving any scars.

Similarly, invented by Dr. Theodorou in conjunction with InMode, two powerful technologies from InMode – FaceTite and Morpheus8 are combined for a breakthrough procedure EmbraceRF that uses RF energy to get rid of unwanted fat in the lower face. This unique one-time facial rejuvenation solution effectively treats the subdermal adipose tissue of the face. The procedure treats skin laxity and excess fat accumulation in the face and neck area caused by factors such as aging, genetics, weight gain and loss, sun exposure and gravity – without surgery.

President of InMode North America, Shakil Lakhani, says, “We are thrilled to announce a strong and powerful woman like Paula representing our brand, who has an ageless presence and embodies InMode’s commitment to enhance beauty and well-being. This collaboration will ensure a greater audience who will be aware of the benefits of InMode’s technology on a national and global level.”

Why Should You Choose Winter or Fall Season for Plastic Surgery?

Maintaining a toned body is a difficult task for women, especially after delivery. Women turn to exercise and diet in an attempt to reclaim their pre- pregnancy body shape but sometimes they are not able to achieve the desired results. BodyTite liposuction surgery is an ideal solution to contour the body and achieve an attractive appearance. This plastic surgery improves the overall appearance of the treated areas. It can remove large quantities of fat, correct irregularities from earlier procedures and sculpt delicate body parts precisely.

Why Should You Choose Winter or Fall Season for Plastic Surgery?According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), nearly a quarter million more cosmetic procedures were performed in 2018 than in 2017. Around 1.8 million cosmetic surgeries were done last year and the top plastic surgeries were breast augmentation, liposuction, nose shaping, eyelid surgery and tummy tuck. Butt augmentation also showed an increase.

A study in UK analyzed 204 questionnaires to know the factors that influenced a person’s likelihood of opting for cosmetic surgery. The study showed that the people who were more exposed to media were interested in undergoing plastic surgery.

According to the data from ASPS, three out of the top five surgical procedures in 2018 focused on the body. The number of liposuction procedures increased by more than 12,000, while surgeons performed more than 13,000 additional breast augmentations.  A small percentage of people look for other alternatives that are non-surgical and non-invasive, especially of the face and neck.  If you are considering plastic surgery, then fall and winter are the ideal seasons for it. Here are three reasons why you should choose winter or fall for plastic surgery.

  • Quick recovery: Many people choose not to go for any plastic surgery procedure, thinking about the time taken for recovery. Winter or fall is the right time for any plastic surgery as you can stay indoors for a few days and in case you want to go out, you can cover your plastic surgery scars, marks or garments with layers of clothes.
  • A great reason to stay at home: If you have a stressful job, winter vacation is the right time to have plastic surgery as it is the perfect opportunity to stay at home and recover. Make sure to choose a plastic surgeon who is close to you so that you can easily go for follow-up visits and you will also have family and friends to help you.
  • You can avoid the sun and its harmful effects: The sun can harm the skin especially when you are in the healing stage. Too much exposure to the sun could increase the recovery time because the wound may take longer to heal. Infections and scarring are a possibility. During the winter and fall seasons, the sun is not as intense as in the summer months.
  • A time to enjoy cosmetic surgery as a gift: Holidays are the best part of the winter season and the ideal time to undergo plastic surgery. Many people consider giving plastic surgery as a gift for their loved ones. This is the perfect time to give loved ones time to pamper themselves. Spouses can gift each other a plastic surgery procedure. You can also consider giving yourself a treat and choose to undergo a procedure of your choice. After the procedure, you get to relax, minimize stress and start fresh with more confidence and self esteem.

Today, various plastic surgery procedures are available for almost any part of the body, but the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery should not be taken lightly. The results are often permanent, so it is important to be sure about the decision, to approach a qualified and experienced practitioner, and to have the right motivation. If you wish to undergo BodyTite surgery or any other plastic surgery procedure in New York, then make sure to choose plastic surgeons in NYC who are trained and experienced, and focus on achieving the best results.  They provide optimal experience using the latest technologies. They also educate their patients about the procedures and weigh up all the pros and cons beforehand.

Paula Abdul Does 10-Hour Rehearsals at Age 57 to Keep Her Body Going

Paula Abdul Does 10-Hour Rehearsals At Age 57 to Keep Her Body Going

As reported in PEOPLE news, Paula Abdul, at age 57 is far from slowing down as she has to treat her body well to keep going day after day. The International Pop Icon was currently prepping for her first Las Vegas residency where she had put on the hard work, starting each day before the sun and going until late at night.

Abdul told PEOPLE that, “It’s very physically intense. I get up at 6 and I work with my trainer for an hour and a half. Then I go to rehearsals at about a quarter to 9. We do a warm-up and then we dance. We go from about 9:45 until 7 p.m., and we take one day off.” She describes her workout routine which includes a lot of stretching and back and core work (if her trainer is around). She says, “even though I’m dancing all day I often do straight cardio just so that I’m conditioning my body. And after each performance I usually get in an ice-cold tub. It’s not fun! It shocks your body, but it helps with inflammation.”

The “Cold Hearted” singer also pays close attention to what she eats – even though she doesn’t like following diets – mainly due to her hours spent dancing and due to her history of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) a type of chronic pain after an injury or surgery. She says, following a low alkaline diet can help with RSD because it helps to lower your acidity to slow inflammation.

On her 57th birthday, she treated herself to minimally-invasive plastic surgeries provided BodyTite and Facetite from InMode. She says, “I wanted to do something for myself. I’ve had multiple spinal cord injuries and paralysis, and because my arms had paralysis, the muscles atrophied. I work out a lot, and no matter how many times I hit the gym and did bicep and tricep workouts, it was always difficult because I had to rebuild muscle tissue. When I found out about InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite, there was really great improvement. It’s subtle.” Moreover, wanting to avoid traditional cosmetic surgery, Paula looked for a non-invasive option to address her concerns and found InMode and its BodyTite and FaceTite technology.

Due to her positive experience with InMode’s BodyTite, FaceTite and Morpheus8 technologies, Paula Abdul has agreed to join InMode Ltd. as new brand ambassador. Plastic surgeon Spero Theodorou, MD of bodySCULPT in NYC who is also InMode’s Chief Medical Officer, discussed Paula as the right choice. Dr.Theodorou says, “Paula is an excellent candidate for InMode’s innovative technology using Radio-Frequency (RF) to provide a natural tighter appearance. And moreover, she is fit and exercises regularly, but has some areas that trouble her due to past injuries and the effects of aging that overtake us all.”

InMode’s BodyTite system proved the ideal option to sculpt and remodel Paula’s arms while the FaceTite and Morpheus8 handpieces addressed her lower face, jawline and neck. Unlike more extensive cosmetic surgery, which requires general anesthesia, InMode’s minimally-invasive BodyTite/FaceTite technology needs only local anesthesia.

BodyTite is a safe, minimally-invasive cosmetic surgical procedure that offers efficient removal of stubborn fat and cellulite reduction along with noticeable skin tightening effects. The FDA-cleared BodyTite liposuction device delivers RF energy to liquefy subcutaneous fat so that it can be easily removed. It also coagulates the blood vessels and tightens the skin, while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed.

Similarly, FaceTite is a non-invasive RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) facial contouring solution that provides superior internal and external liposuction and allows three-dimensional remodeling of the fibrous tissues.

At age 57, she looks as good as some women half her age and has the physique to show it. Although, she acknowledges the ageing effects that gravity can have on the body.

She shares her positive outlook to aging as “I feel like I’m aging as gracefully as one can be, with a healthy outlook. Dancing with passion everyday keeps that going. Aging is inevitable, and I haven’t really put too much pressure on it.”

According to a recent Yahoo Finance news report, Paula is bringing her renewed feeling of confidence and self-assurance to others who want the same benefits.
