“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.”

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.

Paula Abdul Shares her InMode Cosmetic Experience on the BUILD Series by Yahoo

Paula Abdul Shares her InMode Cosmetic Experience on the BUILD Series by YahooPop legend Paula Abdul is making headlines for three reasons – one, for her ongoing Las Vegas Residency, second, for her admission about having cosmetic surgery before the launch of her Residency, and last but not least, becoming brand ambassador for InMode. On a Yahoo BUILD episode aired on October 3, Paula openly talked about the procedures she had when the host praised her saying, “You look amazing!”

Paula said she was 57 years old and aware of how gravity influences aging. She wanted to keep her appearance up and look a little refreshed ahead of the launch of her show in Las Vegas, “Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl”. She had always dreamt of getting a sleeker jawline and said she thought this was the perfect time to get something done about it. But Paula was not ready to have an incision and invasive plastic surgery.

Paula said she didn’t want to look different and just wanted a more youthful profile. The singer looked around for a solution and found InMode. FaceTite and BodyTite from InMode helped Paula achieve her aesthetic goals. She said that this radiofrequency-assisted procedure helped her achieve her goals with no visible scarring. Paula mentioned that it stimulates collagen and provides very natural looking results, and that she would recommend to everyone. InMode’s technology proved the right option to address age-related aesthetic concerns in her arms, lower face, jawline and neck. Paula also mentioned that she walked out the house in two days post-op!

On a Wendy Williams talk show which was aired earlier this month, the host praised Paula for “never” aging. Paula went on to openly discuss the procedures that transformed her appearance.

Invented by Dr. Spero Theodorou, bodySCULPT’s leading plastic surgeon who is also the chief medical officer of InMode, EmbraceRF 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.

InMode Stock Soars after Paula Abdul Is Named Their Brand Ambassador

spero and paulaInMode, a prominent medical technology company’s fortunes have reversed soon after the announcement that International pop icon 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. InMode’s collaboration with pop icon Paula Abdul will definitely prove beneficial to the company. As reported by Bloomberg, the newly public InMode Ltd. surged Wednesday, August 14, 2019 after announcing Paula Abdul as a brand ambassador for its alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Streetwise Reports says the shares of InMode rose 25% even as the broader stock market dropped.

This newly-public InMode Ltd. 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 came public only recently in a $14 IPO.

According to Streetwise Reports, 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.

However, on the first day of trading, the shares fell and priced at the bottom of the offering, but since then, it’s been a steady upward climb, 55% above the listing price and hovering near record daytime highs. 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 who is also InMode’s Chief Medical Officer, 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.”

On her part, Paula Abdul wants to bring her renewed feeling of confidence and self-assurance to others who want the same benefits. She is happy to be InMode’s brand ambassador because she has experienced positive results with the company’s BodyTite system for her arms, and FaceTite and Morpheus8 hand pieces for her lower face, jaw line and neck. She wants to get the word out about the excellent results InMode’s amazing technology in face and body contouring can achieve. The treatment enabled her to restore a sleeker, more youthful look without invasive surgery and general anesthesia.

InMode’s minimally invasive BodyTite/FaceTite technology removes fat and contracts the skin under local anesthesia. The treatment does not leave any visible scarring; downtime is minimal, and the treatment is less costly than traditional surgical procedures. Results are observed immediately and you experience continued improvement up to 12 months later.

InMode Stock Soars

Leading NYC plastic surgeons Drs. Spero Theodorou and Christopher T. Chia of bodySCULPT in NYC are inventors of innovative BodyTite on Arms, a scarless arm lift procedure that enhances 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 together 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 – without surgery.

However, the positive reviews and the dynamic presence of Paula Abdul could lift InMode’s shares even higher. Shakil Lakhani, President of InMode North America, adds, “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.”

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.

bodySCULPT’s Surgeons Publish Study on Utility of RF Microneedling-Bipolar RF Combination for Skin Laxity

bodySCULPT’s Surgeons Publish Study on Utility of RF Microneedling-Bipolar RF Combination for Skin LaxityRF Microneedling (Fractora modified to Morpheus8) combined with Bipolar RF (FaceTite/BodyTite for Skin Laxity) is an effective combination treatment for skin laxity, according to a paper published 8 April, 2019, in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal. Titled “Adjustable Depth Fractional Radiofrequency Combined With Bipolar Radio frequency: A Minimally Invasive Combination Treatment for Skin Laxity”, the publication written by leading plastic surgeons Dr. Erez Dayan, Dr. Chris Chia, Dr. Jay Burns, and Dr. Spero Theodorou. Dr. Chia and Dr. Theodorou are leading plastic surgeons at bodySCULPT, NYC.

In a press release, InMode announced the results of the study which described the utility of combining two of its technologies to treat fat and skin laxity – Morpheus8, a subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) with adjustable depth, and FaceTite, a minimally invasive radio frequency (RF) based technology. This treatment combo is called EmbraceRF.

The demand for minimally invasive skin tightening and adipose reduction treatments is rising with the patient’s desire to avoid major surgery. Multiple energy-based technologies including laser, high-intensity focused ultrasound, and radio frequency (RF) have evolved in response to this demand. Of these, RF technology has steadily gained popularity with consecutive increases in use of 10% or more annually, according to the study.

In the article, authors note that a large treatment gap is prevalent among three cohorts of patients:

  • The younger demographic, who increasingly desire soft tissue tightening without traditional operations, scars, and downtime
  • Patients with soft tissue laxity who are not “severe enough” to justify an excisional procedure, but not “mild enough” to rely on liposuction with soft tissue contraction alone
  • Those with recurrent laxity who already underwent traditional excisional procedures

The use of traditional methods in such patients can lead to under treatment or over treatment. The study found that RF microneedling in combination with bipolar RF can address this treatment gap.

Morpheus8, one of InMode’s newest products, is a fractional radio frequency device with adjustable micro needles up to 4 mm depth, programmable according to the treatment area.  FaceTite is InMode’s clinically proven Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL) device that is used for the treatment of facial and body areas. EmbraceRF is a minimally-invasive treatment that combines these powerful technologies to provides a long-lasting solution to the effects of facial aging. The article highlights clinical applications, such as early facial aging, recurrent laxity after a facelift, brachioplasty, and focal areas of excess skin adiposity. The authors point out that complications are rare when employed judiciously in the appropriately selected patients.

The article describes the treatment procedure – pretreatment, anesthesia, treatment and post-treatment. For pretreatment, a detailed history and physical are obtained to determine if there are any contraindications to treatment (such as, collagen disorders, active infection, immunocompromised state, pregnancy, poor wound healing, unrealistic expectations). There are various options for anesthesia and type used would depend on energy employed, depth of treatment and patient tolerance. After the treatment, cooling of the skin immediately is important to reduce discomfort and erythema/edema.

The authors concluded, “In our experience, combination RF technology (RF microneedling and bipolar RF) advances and broadens our ability to achieve tissue retraction that does not reliably occur with other energy-based devices and liposuction alone.”

Dr Spero Theodorou Featured in Reader’s Digest Article on Double Chin Concern

spero-digest-article-on-double-chin-concernA double chin is a common aesthetic concern that men and women face. That extra layer of fat between the neck and jaw and sagging skin can make you older than you are, add to the appearance of being overweight, and reduce your self-confidence. New York City plastic surgeons use a variety of procedures to remove a double chin such as liposuction, face lift, and neck lift. According to Spero Theodorou, MD, founder and Surgical Director of bodySCULPT in New York City, FaceTite, a minimally invasive facelift-type procedure is the ideal option to get rid of a double chin. Dr. Theodorou expressed his views in an article on Reader’s Digest titled “How to Get Rid of a Double Chin: What Really Works” with a section focusing on FaceTite and radio frequency.

Aging, weight gain, poor posture, anatomy, and genetics are the main factors that cause a double chin. Cosmetic intervention is the ideal option to address this concern when diet and exercise cannot provide the desired results. FaceTite is a safe and effective minimally invasive facelift-type procedure that works on radio frequency energy. This contouring solution from InMode can improve the jowls, neck, nasolabial folds, cheeks, jaw line, and small areas of the body.

“FaceTite is ideal for areas like the chin because it is a controlled safe manner for treating the fat or outer layer of skin with a very precise and controlled technology”, explains Dr. Theodorou.

With FaceTite, there is 100% energy concentration in the treatment zone. “The FaceTite energy is only in the area between the two probes, so that ensures heating only happens in a very targeted and contained area,” says Dr. Theodorou.

The InMode device is designed to promote fat coagulation and tissue remodeling, and provides surgical-quality results without scars. Its dual temperature technologies provide greater safety and control with real time measurements of skin temperature, impedance monitoring, power cut-off, and audible feedback.

According to Dr. Theodorou, improvements are seen right away but improve with every month after the treatment. “Great results are seen between the three to six months time range, and tightening can continue up to 12 months,” he says.

At bodySCULPT, FaceTite is performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. This NYC plastic surgery practice also offers EmbraceRF procedure, the innovative procedure that combines FaceTite and FDA-approved Morpheus8, a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD). This treatment addresses skin laxity in the face/neck area and reduces stubborn fat, with attractive, natural-looking results.

With extensive experience in performing facial rejuvenation procedures, including RF-assisted treatments, bodySCULPT’s plastic surgeons provide comprehensive solutions to help patients achieve their personal appearance goals.

EmbraceRF for Superior Facial Contouring Outcomes without Surgery

EmbraceRFEmbraceRF in NYC is a new breakthrough facial contouring procedure that can address the lower third of the face, specifically the neck and jowls. It is a onetime procedure that combines two powerful technologies from industry leader InMode – FaceTite and FDA approved Morpheus8, a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD). This procedure is a great option for patients who have skin laxity in the lower face and neck with or without underlying fat concerns, and for those who may not opt for a facelift but want optimal outcomes.

FaceTite utilizes RFAL (Radiofrequency-assisted liposuction) to address excess fat deposits as well as skin laxity on the face and neck. In some cases, some of the fat in the face and neck area may need to be preserved to retain a youthful appearance. Depending on the quality of the skin, the aesthetic surgeon can combine EmbraceRF with Morpheus8 externally for remodeling the underlying fat tissues. With its depth of 4 mm and additional 1 mm heat signature, Morpheus8 allows the surgeon to remodel adipose (fat) tissue. Depending on the depth of the dermis in different parts of the face, the surgeon can preserve fat and tighten skin or remold the fat into the contours so as to improve definition of the jaw line, jowls and neck, while retaining the fullness necessary to maintain a youthful appearance. The procedure enables the surgeon to determine how much fat is removed, left behind or molded for precise sculpting of the face.

Here are some of the benefits of using EmbraceRF

  • Minimally-invasive treatment, no incisions or scars
  • Takes about 45 minutes to complete, with about a 48-hour downtime
  • Performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia
  • Treats both superficial and deep tissues
  • Tightens the skin in the neck and jowls
  • Improves the jaw line and rejuvenates the neck
  • Improves skin tone
  • Retains the youthful fullness of the face
  • Superior facial contouring with natural looking outcomes
  • Results are visible immediately and improve over time
  • Uniform treatment and permanent results

Built-in safeguards including real time measurements of skin temperature, impedance monitoring, power cut-off and audible feedback foster patient safety.

The categories of patients who can opt for this procedure include:

  • Treatment Gap Patients – Patients who do not have bad enough skin for a facelift and not good enough skin elasticity for liposuction.

bodySCULPT® Introduces EmbraceRF, an Innovative Procedure for Facial Contouring

bodySCULPT® based in Manhattan, NYC, is introducing EmbraceRF, a breakthrough procedure in facial augmentation and rejuvenation of the neck. This innovative scarless facial contouring solution provides superior contouring of the face and neck using a combination of InMode’s proprietary technologies: FaceTite and FDA approved Morpheus8. EmbraceRF is an exciting one-time procedure with minimal downtime and permanent results.

EmbraceRF combines FaceTite and Morpheus8 to provide the best outcomes for lower face contouring. FaceTite utilizes RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) to provide superior internal and external liposuction and three-dimensional remodeling of the fibrous tissues. The  combination  of  fat  being  left  strategically  behind  to  contour  the  lower  face  and  neck  is  further  augmented  by  InMode’s newly  cleared  FDA approved Subdermal  Adipose  Remodeling  Device  (SARD): Morpheus8.

The EmbraceRF technique was developed by Dr. Spero Theodorou of bodySCULPT and Dr. Paolo Rovatti with Inmode’s, proprietary technology Morpheus8 and Facetite. Blending FaceTite and Morpheus8, EmbraceRF delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to “mold” the fat of the face in strategic positions and address aging facial features and face laxity with natural looking results. This treatment improves the jaw line, rejuvenates the neck and tightens the skin in the neck and jowls, while retaining the fullness necessary to maintain a youthful appearance.

This groundbreaking treatment involves no incisions or scars and can be performed under local anesthesia. It provides results similar to facelift surgery with just a two-day or long-weekend downtime and involves no complicated recovery. Other treatment benefits include safe, gentle and effective fat removal and minimal bruising, swelling and pain.

bodySCULPT’s plastic surgeons Dr. Spero Theodorou and Dr.Christopher Chia, are known for successfully performing advanced plastic surgery procedures with excellent aesthetic results. They have done extensive research on radiofrequency applications in plastic surgery and are the inventors of the Scarless Arm Lift procedure as well as the first to perform the Brazilian Butt Lift under local anesthesia.
