It is not often that one treatment offers head to toe body rejuvenation. We are pleased to now offer JuVaShape at Will Surgical Arts. Utilizing a combined approach to skin tightening, JuVaShape treats both the surface layers of the skin as well as the underlying supportive tissues. JuVaShape encompasses both bipolar and unipolar radio frequencies to best tone, tighten, and contour the body.
Known for its tummy firming ways, abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck, is not traditionally considered to be a weight loss tool. By tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess fatty tissues and skin, a tummy tuck slims and tones the midsection. While abdominoplasty itself does not target weight loss, a tummy tuck may help patients successfully lose and keep weight off.
Summer sun is fun—but, long days of exposure can wreak havoc on our skin. It should come as no surprise that Ultraviolet Radiation (UV Rays) is highly damaging to our skin cells. A recent study found that in middle-aged adults, a quarter or more of cells in the skin have suffered sun induced damage. Although the cells appeared outwardly normal, thousands of DNA mutations appeared in each cell. Clusters of these so called mutant cells, known as clones, appeared in every 0.1 square inch of skin. Lead researcher and cancer geneticist, Dr. Peter J. Campbell was taken aback by the amount of damage UV Rays had on cells; expressing his surprise, he said the findings were “way higher than we’d expect”.
