You've tried everything including exercise, all kinds of diets and more, but nothing ever works. Are you asking yourself this question: "How can I lose the weight that's preventing me from revitalizing the youthful appearance I once had?"

Flash Fat Loss turns dreams into reality with their new and revolutionary Strawberry Laser Lipo medical device. This breakthrough body-contouring laser, as seen on "The Doctors", helps you shape your way to a more fit and joyful lifestyle. The laser provides inch loss with the very first treatment, motivating you to stay on track.

Best of all, the Strawberry Laser Lipo 20-minute treatment is:

  • Non-invasive (no surgery)
  • Requires no drugs or anesthesia
  • Has no pain and no recovery time
  • FDA-approved
  • Provides immediate results

Actual client, Jennifer James, shares her Strawberry Laser experience.

I chose to have my abdomen treated. At my first trial session, "before" measurements and a picture of that area were taken. They then applied the lasers to my abdomen and I relaxed for 20 minutes. The friendly technician explained to me that the Strawberry Laser works by safely expelling fatty acids and glycerol from my fat cells, causing them to shrink and ultimately the "melted" fat is carried out of my body in my urine. After the treatment, they measured me again, and I lost an astounding 1.5 inches on my waistline in my very first 20-minute treatment. I could even see the difference!

Flash-Teeth-Whitening-and-Laser-Lipo Before-and-AfterYou may be thinking that this is too good to be true, but the proof is in the scientific results. An FDA Double Blind Clinical Trial resulted in an average of 3.7 inches lost after eight 20-minute sessions with one measurement at the waistline.

They say that you can be "thinner with every visit", but is that really possible? Understandably, that's the question asked by many. Well, my experience is that the answer is yes, and the inch loss is just as permanent as if you lost the inches through diet or exercise.

So, if you are ready to rediscover the thinner, more youthful you and perhaps jump back into your skinny jeans, I encourage you to experience the revolutionary Strawberry Laser that will leave a thinner you with every visit. What are you waiting for?

Tighten, Tone and Transform with EndyMed

When it comes to getting rid of embarrassing loose skin and cellulite, surgery doesn't have to be the only option. EndyMed offers a safe, non-invasive and effective solution for all skin types with an FDA-approved, body-contouring and skin-tightening machine. It uses a radiofrequency energy called 3DEEP technology that heats the skin and underlying fascia past the epidermis and into the dermis and sub-dermal layers. This painless deep heat triggers the body to heal and form new collagen while smoothing out wrinkles and improving overall skin quality. The energy flow is controlled and targeted for maximum effectiveness with minimal flow to the skin's surface, eliminating the need for active cooling. Real-time tissue sensors and feedback mechanisms mean every treatment can be personalized to each patient's individual skin characteristics. EndyMed treatments can be performed on the majority of the body, and work best for those with a proper diet and exercise routine. For optimal results, treatments should be done once a week for six weeks.

What is Endometriosis?

Endometriosis is a condition in which the glands of the uterus (endometrial glands) and their supportive structures (stroma) are positioned outside of the uterus. This abnormally-located and inflamed endometrial tissue can cause debilitating chronic pelvic pain, infertility, bowel or urinary problems, and adhesions that bind organs together.

We heard that endometriosis grows in various tissues, yet it is not cancer?

Endometriosis can occur in any tissue that accepts endometrium. It can grow into surgical scars, the diaphragm, the lung – in one extreme case, we diagnosed endometriosis of an eye. It's no surprise that this condition was called a "mystery of the century," despite the fact this mystery involves far more than one century of extensive scientific work. It is not cancer, although rarely cancer can develop from it, especially in cases of long-term ovarian endometriotic cysts.

How does it develop?

The main question becomes, what allows the glands, arriving to the pelvis through fallopian tubes along with menstrual flow to adhere and grow and cause symptoms in all these different tissues. While there are many theories, the definitive answer to this question has not been found yet.

What are the treatment options for Endometriosis?

Endometriosis affects women and their families significantly. The emotional and physical aspects of it are at times devastating. When good communication with a patient and/or a couple is established, concerns are faced and addressed, and the healing can begin in earnest. The approach to treatment of endometriosis is complex and often involves holistic options in addition to traditional medical approaches.

Hormonal regimens may be instituted in order to suppress the growth of endometriotic lesions and reduce the formation of new ones, as well as to diminish the mechanism that triggers pain. Such treatment will not eradicate current growths or adhesions, yet, it may delay a need in surgical intervention when successful.

Another option is minimally invasive laparoscopic/endoscopic surgery that focuses on removal of endometriotic growth cysts and adhesions under laparoscopic magnification. This option applies to symptomatic women who consider pregnancy in the near future. It is also highly beneficial in women who experience pain that is unabated by hormonal medications or non-medical approaches.

Wishing you happy and joyful

Botox and Filler: Putting It All Together

Growing older is a gift. Looking older is a choice.

Have you ever asked yourself what's changing as you age? Why is it that we don't confuse a beautiful mother in her early 40s with her beautiful teenage daughter? The answer is revealed in their facial shape.

About every 20 years, the facial skeleton completely turns over and each time the facial bones lose volume. Also, as we age, facial fat redistributes and in some areas gets less robust. The most common early changes are noticed at the eyelid-cheek junction, or "the tear trough", where loss of fat creates hollowness under the eye, and a visual lengthening of the lower lid. The soft, round, full cheek of youth also deflates as the cheek descends, the highlight flattens and smile lines deepen. As aging continues, these changes magnify; the cheek area becomes a series of undulating peaks and valleys and the lower face and neck become heavy. A double chin can make some look older and heavier, even if still young!

Fortunately, today we can address these issues with a number of techniques, many of which are minimally invasive. Facial injectable fillers such as Restylane®, Juvederm® and Voluma® replenish lost volume. Lasers smooth and tighten the skin; skin sagging can be diminished without incisions using ThermiRF (minimally-invasive radiofrequency) or, when necessary, surgical procedures such as minilift or facelift. For an unwanted double chin, new treatments can permanently eliminate fat, including Kybella®, an injectable medication, or CoolSculpting®, a cold therapy that sculpts the neck non-invasively.

To learn about the treatments that are best for you, visit a facial plastic surgeon for a consultation. Remember — consistently excellent, natural-looking results require a surgeon with an artist's eye for detail, meticulous surgical skill and the impeccable judgment that only comes with experience.
