“InMode a Game Changer”, says InMode’s Brand Ambassador Paula Abdul

In October 2019, international pop icon and brand ambassador of InMode, Paula Abdul made headlines by sharing her cosmetic treatment experiences with InMode’s signature minimally invasive treatments – FaceTite, AccuTite and Morpheus8 – to contour her arms and lower face. In a recent conversation with InMode’s President Shakil Lakhani, Paula raved, “InMode is a game changer”. The pop icon was replying to Shakil Lakhani question on how InMode’s innovative technology had benefited her.

“InMode a Game Changer”, says InMode’s Brand Ambassador Paula Abdul

Paula wanted to refresh her appearance ahead of her “Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl” concert residency at the Flamingo Las Vegas in Las Vegas, which opened August 13, 2019. She openly admitted the inevitable effects of gravity on her appearance and decided to something to achieve her dream of a sleeker jawline. But she was not ready to have incisions and invasive plastic surgery.

She told Shakil Lakhani that she found InMode after researching all the minimally-invasive procedures out in the market. Paula called InMode a game changer after viewing the before and after pictures of different InMode patients. She found that InMode’s procedure resulted in a sleek and defined chin, and that the procedure requires little downtime – which was all she wanted. While maintaining a healthy lifestyle, InMode’s FaceTite, AccuTite and Morpheus8 helped Paula restore a sleeker, more youthful look without invasive cosmetic surgery.

Pleased with the initial results, Paula Abdul said that she couldn’t wait for a year to go by to see what final results. She also shared her experiences working with the team, especially with bodySCULPT plastic surgeon and InMode’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Spero Theodorou who is also now her great friend.

Dr. Theodorou is also responsible for the development of all of InMode’s procedures, clinical studies and training. He invented EmbraceRF which combines InMode’s FaceTite and Morpheus8 to address aging concerns in the lower face. This unique one-time facial rejuvenation procedure treats skin laxity and excess fat accumulation in the face and neck area.

In a Yahoo Finance news report, Dr. Theodorou had endorsed choosing Paula as InMode’s brand ambassador. “Paula is an excellent choice as InMode’s brand ambassador as 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,” he said.

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

She felt that its important, especially to know that there’s this procedure and technology that does wonderful job and the downtime is incredible, that post the procedure you can literally put little makeup on and can go back to your day.

When asked by Shakil that what could be the reason for many people turning down cosmetic procedures, Paula said that, often times, it could be scary. She but then encourages people, especially women saying that how amazingly the technology keeps getting better and better, and women should come forward and try out these procedure, as she strongly believes women should be celebrated.

“My confidence has been raised – when you feel good on the inside, you radiate on the outside” concluding, “My results were subtle, but definitive”, she concluded.

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

Buttock Injections Market Analysis and Forecast, 2017-2025

An increasing number of women are opting to have fat transfer to buttocks in NYC to improve buttock shape and size. The procedure, also known as the Brazilian butt lift, involves removing the fat from body areas where it is abundant via liposuction, processing it, and injecting it into the posterior to provide a rounded, fuller look. When performed by a skilled plastic surgeon, fat transfer buttock augmentation is safe and provides more natural looking results than butt implants. According to recent Persistence Market Research, the buttock injections market is to witness a healthy growth during 2017-2025.

The typical donor sites for the fat transfer butt lift are the abdomen, thighs, hips, and lower back. Rather than using synthetic butt implants to add volume, this minimally invasive treatment uses the patient’s own fat to safely create a perky, prominent look.

Buttock Injections Market

According to the Persistence Market Research report, one of the major reasons for the growth of the buttock injections is that it offers a dual advantage – liposuction to remove unwanted fat around belly and other body areas as well as the use of the same fat to augment the derriere. So it simultaneously solves two aesthetic concerns. Other factors driving the rapid growth of buttock injections market include:

  • Unlike implants, buttock injections can be placed anywhere, including smaller areas
  • This is a minimal invasive procedure that can be performed faster
  • Scarring is minimal

Fat transfer to the buttocks in Manhattan, NYC is an ideal option for women who desire perfectly toned buttocks but have not been able to achieve this either by exercising or dieting. Buttock injections can address flat buttocks, sagginess, loss of shape due to aging or hormonal changes, and asymmetry.

There two types of butt injections – autologous fat injections and silicone injections. The market research report notes that fat injections dominate the buttock injections market and are anticipated to follow the same trend over the forecast period (2018-2025). Silicone injections are projected to grow at a medium pace. The report identifies the factors contributing to the growth of the global buttock augmentation market as:

  • Rising consciousness among people about their physical appearance with upgraded lifestyle
  • An increase in the number of buttock deformities due to growth in aging population
  • Increasing disposable income
  • The availability of technologically advanced buttock augmentation procedures

The barriers to this market’s growth are identified as the high cost of the surgery, risk of infections, and unfavorable reimbursement policies.

The report divides the market on the basis of injections type, distributor channel and geographic region:

Segmentation by Injection Type

  • Hydrogel Butt Injections
  • PMMA Butt Injections
  • Fat Injections
  • Silicone Butt Injections
  • Unbranded products

Segmentation by Distribution Channel

  • Dermatology Clinics
  • Aesthetic Clinics
  • Drugstores and Cosmetic Stores
  • E-commerce
  • Others

Segmentation by Geography

  • North America
  • Latin America
  • Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Middle East & Africa

The report also provides an analysis of regional growth. As per the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the popularity of buttock injections is growing at a fast pace in North America. Based on geography, the market study found that North America registered the highest market share in the global buttock injections market followed by Europe and is projected to dominate over the forecast period due to the rising demand of these injections from American women. The Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a moderate CAGR during the forecast period and anticipated to be a profitable market for new market players in the global buttock injections market.

Women considering Brazilian Butt Lift in NYC, should have an open discussion with their surgeon to get a good idea about what they can actually achieve with this treatment. Not all women are good candidates for the procedure. Being healthy is important as medical conditions could affect procedural efficiency and recovery. Patients with reasonably good skin tone in the areas that have to be treated can expect to achieve better outcomes. To maintain long lasting results, patients need to maintain their weight and follow a healthy lifestyle.

InMode Gets Health Canada Certification for Its New Products

InMode, a global provider of innovative, energy-based, minimally invasive and non-invasive medical solutions, recently announced that they received Health Canada Certification for their multiple new products. Of the diverse products that received the certification, two are clinically proven technologies – Morpheus8 and AccuTite. These products have dominated the US market as the leading choice of aesthetic solutions for physicians. The introduction of these products also shows InMode’s commitment in creating innovative, life-changing technologies that enhance beauty and well-being.

The first product of its kind to get such a certification, Morpheus8 is designed specifically to morph aging skin and contour the body. This new Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) can fractionally remodel and contour the face and body. It can improve skin texture and acne scars and reduce wrinkles on the face and body thus providing patients with long-lasting results, without surgery and downtime.

The smallest minimally invasive technology available, AccuTite delivers precision heating in addition to the science and safety recognized with the Radio-frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) family of technologies. With this technology, specific treatments can be done under local anesthesia, in an office setting, in less than 20 minutes. Several safeguards built into this technology ensure uniform and gentle heating and thus makes the procedure comfortable and effective.

According to Dr. Spero Theodorou, InMode’s Chief Medical Officer, “We are pleased to bring Morpheus8 and AccuTite to our Canadian patients. These technologies have opened new horizons, providing minimally invasive options for patients who are looking for long-lasting results with minimal downtime, with safety and efficacy in mind.”

Shakil Lakhani, President of InMode North America says that expanding their product portfolio with disruptive technologies is critical for accelerating the growth of the InMode brand globally. Canada is a key market for them, and the introduction of these products is a prime example of their commitment to deliver innovative life-changing technologies.

InMode also announced that along with these two products, they also obtained Health Canada certification for an alternate version of their BodyTite technology which is currently sold in the Canadian market. Powered by directional RF, BodyTite assists in three-dimensional tissue remodeling through fat coagulation and volumetric heating. The coagulation of fat using RF-induced heat results in radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL).

InMode had announced Paula Abdul as their brand ambassador in August 2019 and the company experienced a reversal in their fortune after this announcement.

Paula Abdul Revisits her ‘Coming to America’ Wedding Choreography Experience on Yahoo Entertainment

Paula Abdul Revisits One of Her African Choreography ExperienceInternational pop icon and brand ambassador of InMode, Paula Abdul is in the news for sharing her cosmetic treatment experiences with the company’s minimally invasive technologies FaceTite and BodyTite. Paula is all praise for these modalities that helped to sculpt her face and arms before the launch of her Las Vegas Residency, “Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl”.

Recently, on Yahoo Entertainment, Paula recalled her groundbreaking African choreography in ‘Coming to America’s famous wedding scene, which she referred to as one of the things she is most proud of.

“To this day, a lot of people don’t know that I choreographed Coming to America,” said Paula.

Paula recalled how John Landis, the director of ‘Coming to America’ wanted to meet with the girl who choreographed Janet Jackson. She was still choreographing for the Lakers and Janet Jackson when she got the call from him. Vying for the job and keeping her true age as a secret, when she was turning 18, she managed to convince the director to give her a shot. She knew she had to prove herself as John Landis thought she would be older and more experienced.

Having grown up in the L.A. suburbs of the San Fernando Valley, Paula had to do her research well to create a credible African dance routine worthy of the big screen. This was quite challenging as back then “there was no internet, of course – so no YouTube” that she “could make reference and look up. She relied on library and periodicals and created her own style of choreography, which she thought would be right for the movie. The director loved it”!

Though she has many achievements of which she could be proud, Paula’s ‘Coming to America’ wedding choreography was special. She says, “There were lots of intensive rehearsals, and it was hardcore; it was a lot of work. It was not an easy thing to accomplish, but it’s one of the things I’m most proud of.”

Paula also told Yahoo Entertainment that having a residency in Las Vegas had always been on her bucket list. She describes her Forever Your Girl revue as a “celebration of the many facets of my career for the past few decades. I talk about my humble beginnings. I do storytelling with me talking and also storytelling visually through dance. It’s just very unique and it’s really fun.”

Talking about her self-care routine, Paula said that she does lot of physical training to prepare for a show, especially one like her residency. Today, the 57-year-old pop star credits the InMode aesthetic treatment FaceTite and BodyTite and an alkaline diet for keeping her looking practically how she did when she was 18.

Paula has discussed her experiences with InMode’s minimally invasive and no scar procedures on several talk shows. She said that these radiofrequency-assisted treatments helped her achieve natural looking results with no visible scarring and little downtime.

Dr. Spero Theodorou, bodySCULPT’s leading plastic surgeon who is also the chief medical officer of InMode, invented EmbraceRF which combines two powerful technologies from InMode – FaceTite and Morpheus8 to address aging concerns in the lower face. This unique one-time facial rejuvenation procedure treats skin laxity and excess fat accumulation in the face and neck area – without surgery.

How Paula Abdul Gets Ready for Her Dazzling Performance

International pop icon Paula Abdul who is also now a brand ambassador of InMode Ltd, a prominent medical technology company, has shared via parade.com how she gets ready for her performance — from meditating to scheduling self-care on her calendar.

How Paula Abdul Gets Ready for Her Dazzling PerformanceThe “Cold Hearted” singer was currently prepping for her new Las Vegas residency, “Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl,” at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino on August 13 where she had put on the hard work, starting each day before the sun and going until late at night. She admits that being on stage takes work. Fortunately for her, dancing is still just as meaningful, because it is something she’s done since she was just 8 years old. For her, dance is one of the most precious gifts of her life and it largely contributes to aging gracefully. She shares her positive outlook to aging — “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.”

In an exclusive interview with Parade.com, the 57-year-old singer opened up about how she makes time for self-care i.e. how she schedules it, how she stays in shape, mentally and physically for the performances and more.

  • Preparations for Performance: The pop idol says that she does lots of stretching, Pilates, yoga, and massages, and also gets a lot of rest in between performances and rehearsals. However, rehearsal, mentally and physically, is a vital part of preparing to perform and is sacred because it brings the team together for the love and sharing of dance (parade.com). She also opened up about the treatments she got from InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite to tighten her arms and lower face, to look as good as she feels when she is up there on that stage. 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.
  • Fitness choices: According to a report from PEOPLE, the 57-year-old singer and dancer is far from slowing down as she has to treat her body well to keep going day after day. 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.”

More than any other fitness workouts, Abdul loves dance fitness, especially cardio dance. This dance fuses so many styles such as ballet, salsa, hip-hop, jazz and contemporary. One of her other favorites is Pilates, which is great for strengthening the core, for training the correct use of muscles, and for overall good posture.spero and paula

  • She follows a low-alkaline diet: The Parade report says that Paula Abdul follows a low-alkaline diet, which helps her minimize inflammation in her body. She told people.com, “When you have RSD, the best thing to do is lower your acidity to slow inflammation, so I follow a low alkaline diet. I don’t like following diets but I try to keep the acidity down because that’s what causes flares up in my body.”
  • Making time for self-care: By proper scheduling and keeping the appointment, she makes time for self-care. For her, self-care is listening to her body and resting, playing with her dogs, meditation and affirmations.
  • Unwinding after a show: After a performance, Abdul’s own personal gratitude is to get quiet, stretch and meditate. She would let herself feel grateful about the entire performance, and everything and everyone that had to do with it:  the gorgeous Flamingo venue, her talented dancers, their rehearsals, the phenomenal crew, the audience, every moment of the performance, and so on, which not only helps her unwind, but it also fills her heart and energizes her in a peaceful way.
  • Plans for off days: She loves to get in touch with her family and friends by visiting them and seeing what everyone’s doing and would plan a family barbeque or a movie.
  • Her positive affirmations: For Paula, pain is also a mental battle that helps her build confidence. She looks to certain positive affirmations to strengthen her mental health and some of her favorite messages are (parade.com):
    • You can’t get to where you want to be unless you can accept where you’re at.
    • Whatever your plans are today, smile, say hello, and open the door for someone.
    • Just “Stick to it”–whatever your goals and dreams are for this day, this week, this year, this life.
    • What you don’t like, only you have the power to change.
    • If you avoid situations where you might be told ‘”No,” how will you get to your “Yes?” This so-called rejection process is part of success.
    • When taking care of others, don’t forget to nurture yourself. You cannot give if you yourself have been depleted.
    • Give yourself a quiet moment alone today and just breathe. Remember, there’s power in pause.

However, apart from all this self-care, sometimes you may require cosmetic surgery to improve your looks, confidence and self-assurance. For instance, Paula Abdul required InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite technology for her arm and lower face. Excited by her results, Paula says, “I am proud to get the word out about what InMode’s amazing technology in face and body rejuvenation can do for people like me who notice the inevitable effects of natural aging. While maintaining a healthy lifestyle of fitness and skincare routines, I still wanted more definition and tighter, firmer skin at my jawline and arms – and InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite helped me restore a sleeker, more youthful look without invasive cosmetic surgery. I am very pleased with the results!”

Paula Abdul is bringing her renewed feeling of confidence and self-assurance to others who want the same benefits.

RealSelf releases Report on 2019 Aesthetics Trends

RealSelfBody contouring in NYC has been growing in popularity as an effective option to treat stubborn fat pockets, sagging skin and cellulite that are resistant to even stringent diets and rigorous exercise. With the rise of social media and a plethora of scientific and practical breakthroughs, industry experts have predicted that many new procedures will drive the aesthetic market in 2019. Real Self’s recently published 2019 Aesthetics Trend Report and 2019 Aesthetic watch list noted that consumer interest in minimally invasive cosmetic treatments outpaced interest in surgical treatments last year (CISION PR Newswire).

RealSelf’s 2018 Aesthetics Trend Report was compiled by analyzing user behavior trends of U.S. consumers researching on RealSelf that year. RealSelf’s 2019 report discusses trends that RealSelf analysts and medical experts predict would be big in 2019. Here are the trends featured in RealSelf’s 2019 aesthetic watch list:

  • The Year of the Toxins: This year, there was a lot of interest in preventative treatments and “baby Botox”. Though Botox smoothes wrinkles and fights early signs of aging, results are temporary. In 2018, it was reported that millennials in their 20s and 30s are staying ahead of the game by choosing to have preventative Botox to keep wrinkles from forming in the first place. According to RealSelf’s latest report, interest in Botox is increasing the fastest among 18- to 24-year-old RealSelf users. While Botox is leading the neuromodulator market today, it could face competition from new entrants such as Revance and Evolus.
  • Less Invasive Alternatives to Traditional Procedures: RealSelf’s survey indicates that there is a growing demand for nonsurgical treatments that are less invasive. Unlike traditional surgery with long downtimes, less invasive alternatives allow patients to quickly return to normal routine. Emsculpt, stimulates forced muscle contractions to cause muscle growth, is being touted as first nonsurgical buttock toning procedure. Another example is off-label use of fillers such as Sculptra Aesthetic. This FDA-approved to treat facial wrinkles saw 31 percent interest growth on RealSelf last year, and the report notes that many physicians are now using the injectable for buttock augmentation.
  • Expanded Conversations about Modern Beauty: Social media posts by celebrities and other influencers about their real-life treatment experiences have reduced the stigma around the cosmetic procedures. People are now exposed to more information about advancements in technology and techniques, and now have the ability to choose procedures that can provide them with the best results.

The desire for “instant gratification” is one of the key drivers of the demand for nonsurgical cosmetic treatments. People look for immediate results like a lunch hour transformation or better. Another catalyst in the quest for instant gratification is the selfie trend. Most social media users, especially millennials, have become more image-conscious than ever before and want to look good in every selfie they click. Fox News recently reported that “selfie awareness” is pushing people to take it one step further by undergoing aesthetics procedures to alter their looks. KYBELLA in NYC, a popular nonsurgical treatment, is an ideal option for people looking to resolve a double chin and look good in their selfies.
