ULTRASHAPE – THE NEW, PAINLESS WAY TO MELT FAT AWAY PERMANENTLYMay 13, 2015 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Celebrity Love, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News
In the world of noninvasive fat fighters, there’s always something new on the horizon. One of those, a treatment that does wonders for the body called UltraShape, is a fat melter that targets the abdominal and flank areas to painlessly get rid of fat for good.
GREAT NEWS, we will be offering this procedure SOON!
Instead of using heat or cold, like other fat fighters do, UltraShape makes use of pulsed focused ultrasound energy to target fat without destroying the tissue, nerves, muscles or vascular system. With UltraShape, there is no freeze, no burn and no downtime.
During each 45-minute UltraShape treatment session, done only in a doctor’s office, (on average, three are needed), a handpiece is placed on the body, which is said to feel like the vibration of a cell phone. Totally customizable, UltraShape has made its mark for the mere fact that it works. What sets it apart from other noninvasive fat fighters is that it doesn’t just get rid of fat, but it also sculpts it, too. Some experts say UltraShape may just be the next best thing to liposuction.
Foods That Make You BloatSeptember 26, 2013 / Category: Anti-Aging, Health News
Bloating in the stomach, be it short-lived or regular, can make your midsection not only look bad, but feel bad too. While bloating is one of the easier tummy woes to correct (as long as the cause is properly identified), keeping it at bay long-term usually requires a change in your diet and maybe the addition of a digestive supplement, like a probiotic. The good news is, just because your stomach feels bloated doesn’t necessarily mean that it will look bloated. Avoiding these foods and beverages could help fight bloat:
1. Cellulose-heavy foods like broccoli, cabbage and brussel sprouts are hard for the body to break down.
2. Carbonated waters and sodas contain bubbles that take up space in the stomach and/or allow gas to become trapped.
3. Beans cause bloating because of their high fiber and protein content.
4. Complex carbohydrates take a longer amount of time to digest, causing the tummy to look full.
5. Dairy products like milk and cheese are high in lactose, which is known to cause bloating.
6. Wheat and gluten cause excess gas to be released.
Try eating potassium-rich fruits to alleviate bloating caused by eating these foods.
Stars Rely on B12 Boost for Energy: Madonna, Cindy Crawford, Penelope Cruz Know the Power of Lipo-tropic Vitamin ShotsAugust 6, 2011 / Category: Beauty Breakthroughs, Celebrity Love, Health News
Once again, the power of B12 for youth and energy gets a star-studded endorsement, and this time it’s from some of pop music’s biggest stars. Recently at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony,Justin Timberlake revealed an interesting encounter with Madonna and Vitamin B12, an event which he described as “one of the greatest days of my life” no doubt thanks to the sense of energy and well being that B12 injections (also known as Lipotropic Injections) can create.
Who else is said to take B12? According to recent press, Prince is also a huge fan of the vitamin treatment. Given that all three performers do shows which are heavy on singing and dancing, it is no wonder that they want an extra “lift” that provides energy, stamina and a metabolic boost. Given that much of the celebrity lifestyle can have an adverse effect on health and wellness, lipotropic injections may be one thing outside of cosmetic surgery that props up so many performers.
VITAMIN B-12 LIPO-DEN POWER SHOTS have been around for decades. Margaret Thatcher famously attributes her ability to function on four hours of sleep to her regular B-12 shots. Celebrities like
and Cindy Crawford get vitamin B12 injections regularly. What was once a celebrity trend has now become mainstream; everyone (with certain exceptions) who needs an energy boost or metabolism kick-start can benefit from VITAMIN B-12 LIPO-DEN POWER SHOTS. “People lead busy, hectic lives and I believe there are benefits for those who use these performance injectables responsibly, and under medical supervision,” said Susan Stevens Tanne, MD, Medical Director of COSMETIC LASER MD.
Some other celebrities who have jumped on the B-12 Lipotropic bandwagon:
Charlize Theron has said that B-12 Lipotropics give her a better buzz than her morning coffee.
Penelope Cruz, says, “I can’t live without my vitamin B.” She takes vitamin B supplements to help her stick to her diet, resist the urge for sweets and for well-being.
Victoria Beckham has been vocal about her use of vitamin supplements, including B12, to stay healthy and alert.

Introducing the Lipotropic B12 LIPO-DEN POWER SHOTJuly 24, 2011 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Celebrity Love, Health News
Vitamin B-12 Lipotropic Shots are an all-natural energy blast and metabolic kick start all in one quick injection. COSMETIC LASER MD, leaders in non-invasive and minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, is proud to be one of the first Aesthetic Medical practices to offer this easy, effective product to its patients.
The B12 Lipo-Den Power Shot has been proven to reduce the storage of fat, increase metabolism, increase energy, combat stress and fatigue and reduce appetite. Best results are achieved when patients start their first week with two injections (which are painless), then follow with one weekly injection. Patients feel a boost in mood and energy immediately!
“We will not promise our patients – who have dubbed this little gem the ‘FAT BURNING SHOT’ – that they will necessarily lose weight as a result of this therapy, yet anecdotal evidence among our patients has been compelling,” notes Susan Stevens Tanne MD, Medical Director of COSMETIC LASER MD.
The key ingredients in this cocktail are Vitamin B12, MIC and ADP
Vitamin B12 – essential in helping new, healthy cells in the body. It also boosts energy, helping to increase activity levels.
Methionine – one of the sulfur containing amino acids, Methionine prevents excess fat buildup in the liver and body, and is helpful in relieving fatigue. It acts as a Lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup in the liver and the body, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue, and may be useful in some cases of allergy as it reduces histamine release.
Inositol – A nutrient in the B Vitamin complex, inositol aids in the metabolism of fats and participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter know to control mood and appetite.
Choline – Supports liver health by processing and excreting chemical waste products. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body. It is a component of the Vitamin B Complex.
Adenosine Monophosphate – (AMP) – Boosts metabolism and assists in weight loss.
The only people who should NOT be using Vitamin B12 Lipo-Den Power Shots are those who are pregnant, nursing, or have any type of allergy to SULFA (sulfonamide) drugs.

Diet Secrets that Make Your Skin GlowMarch 29, 2011 / Category: Anti-Aging
Of course if you know by now that at COSMETIC LASER MD we are chemical-free sunscreen fanatics (by the way our new spring products just came in, including a fabulous custom-color block which our makeup artists create just for you), but even we aren’t always thrilled with the Caspar-like pallor. While most people think the best way to improve their skin color is by sun tanning, a recent study shows that eating lots of fruits and vegetables is actually more efficient.
According to new research, people who eat larger portions of fruit and veggies a day have a more golden hue to their skin tone due to consuming more carotenoids. Responsible for the red coloring in fruits and vegetables like carrots and tomatoes, carotenoids are antioxidants that assist in soaking up damaging compounds produced by everyday stress, especially while the body is fighting disease.
Interestingly enough, the study also found that given the choice between skin color caused by sun tan and skin color caused by carotenoids, people preferred the carotenoid skin color. So it looks like if you want a healthier and more attractive skin color, you are better off turning to fruits and veggies than UV rays.
CLEVER CONTOURING THE KARDASHIAN WAYFebruary 25, 2011 / Category: Beauty Breakthroughs, Celebrity Love
Ever wonder how those Kardashian women maintain their sleek camera-ready bod’s and camera-ready glow? Exercise and good nutrition probably play a role, but VelaShape and the St. Tropez Spray Tanning System are the stars’ go-to treatments keeping them in Hollywood red-carpet shape. The Kardashians have spoken extensively about their VelaShape treatments on their show. COSMETIC LASER MD is one of the few Northern NJ practices who use the identical system to the one they use in LA. VelaShape is the only FDA-approved device that effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas in as little as four treatments. Our VelaShape technicians are extremely experienced, and will work with each client to create a streamlined, contoured result. Yes, a firmer, smoother body can actually be yours this summer.
To complete the look, the Kardashians are big fans of the St. Tropez Spray Tan System, widely known as the industry’s most outstanding spray-tan system. Unlike its competitors, the St. Tropez Airbrush Tanning System (featured not only by the Kardashians, but also by Dancin’ With The Stars) produces the most natural color possible, based on your own skin tone. (We promise no orange!) Also, St. Tropez products have none of that “off” odor associated with other self-tanning systems. COSMETIC LASER MD is one of the top St. Tropez Spray Tanning locations in New Jersey, and in addition to body spraying, we carry a complete line of scrubs, optimizers, bronzers and lotions to extend and perfect your glow. Again, our experienced spray tan technician can “create” contours where needed for amazing results.
The third weapon in our red-carpet arsenal: ELOS Laser Hair Removal. Quite simply, ELOS laser hair removal treatments are the ONLY way to permanently reduce unwanted hair from anywhere on the body. In a few short treatments, smooth fresh skin without unsightly stubble can be yours.
COSMETIC LASER MD is offering tremendous discounts on these three body-changing treatments now through March 31, 2011 good for treatments until September 2, 2011.

Getting Back Your Pre-Baby BodyAugust 9, 2010 / Category: Cosmetic Procedures
For most women, stretch marks are an unfortunate side effect of pregnancy. Despite all of the advances doctors have made over the past few decades, there’s still no surefire way to prevent them; likewise, there’s nothing you can do to get rid of them completely.
However, you can fade their appearance and shrink their width with eMatrix™! eMatrix™ helps your body create new collagen. Stretch marks form partially because they’ve lost healthy collagen and eMatrix™ can help restore that.
The Skinny on Fat – VelaShapeApril 24, 2010 / Category: Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures
Last weekend Cosmetic Laser MD attended the 30th annual meeting of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) held in Phoenix, Arizona from Thursday, April 14 through Sunday April 18. Almost 2,000 Cosmetic physicians from around the world attended this important and highly educational meeting. A hot topic discussed at length at the meeting was the issue of fat reduction. Fat reduction is one of the top treatments sought by patients in the Cosmetic Surgery industry. Concerns regarding fat reduction are common, as it is estimated: more than 80% of women over the age of 20, regardless of their weight or size, are affected by cellulite.
Many hours were spent on this exciting and ever more popular topic. A variety of devices using a host of energy sources were discussed, and many research papers were presented regarding the effectiveness of these treatments. The devices used ranged from those using different types of radiofrequency, a new device that freezes fat, devices using focused ultrasound, high frequency ultrasound, and laser energy. Several non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments have been show to be effective treatment options.
As the United States continues to be a country plagued by an abundance of excess fat, these treatments are becoming increasingly more popular. While some of these devices need more studies before the cost and time of performing these treatments becomes a good option for patients, there are in fact effective Laser Treatment options for those who seek fat reduction. Unfortunately, some of these treatments are quite time consuming. The new Zeltiq treatment, which freezes fat, is effective, but takes approximately one hour per area. The body is split up into zones, so if you are treating something like “love handles”, it would be a total of two hours to treat those areas.
Since the FDA clearance, Cosmetic Laser MD has been using a the VelaShape treatment for body contouring and cellulite reduction with great success rate. We find patients tend to be very happy with this effective and relatively comfortable treatment — the best part being that it only takes a total of 20 minutes.
One of the best parts of attending a world class meeting is the opportunity to view a wide variety of laser and other energy-based equipment. Since vendors from around the world attend this meeting to show off their devices, its nice to have the experience of seeing them in action first-hand. The chance to evaluate these devices from many different manufacturers and determine their potential place in our practice is something to look forward to annually.
After watching many demonstrations on the effectiveness and use of different cosmetic laser treatments, VelaShape still remains the best non-invasive option for body contouring and cellulite reduction. Cellulite, which looks like dimpling on the surface of the skin, is actually caused by an accumulation of displaced fat and toxins that are trapped just beneath the surface of skin. Contrary to popular belief, Cellulite is not caused by being overweight. In fact, the majority of people who seek treatment are in good physical condition, but have pockets of cellulite on their arms, hips, thighs or buttocks.The best candidates for VelaShape are healthy individuals who are at or near their ideal weight and who follow a healthful diet and exercise program.
