Quick Fix with Lasting Results

The easy-to-access Greenwich Medical Spa's most popular, tried-and-true procedures are injectables like Botoxand dermal fillers like Juvederm, which seem more appealing in a brightly colored, cozy setting than in a sterile doctor's office. Greenwich Medical Spa is one of Fairfield County's leading Botox providers, and Managing Partner Marria Pooya points out that she's seeing more clients in their 20s opting for preventative Botox.

 

Yet, over 3,000 procedures later, theCoolsculpting treatment has officially become the hottest trend here. The patented and clinically proven Coolsculpting body-contouring service actually freezes targeted fat cells (on troublesome territories like bulging bellies and love handles) over the course of a few months. "In one treatment you can lose up to 25 percent of the targeted area nonsurgically," she says — perfect for those looking for fast beach bod results.

"Many of our clients are opting for non- surgical, minimally invasive procedures with little to no down time and, most importantly, much more subtle and natural looking results," says Pooya.

"One of our greatest compliments is that our clients frequently tell us we treat and make them feel like family," adds Pooya, who recommends visits every 12 to 16 weeks for Botox and every 12 weeks for the Silk- Peel (also called Diamond Tone Micro- dermabrasion) or microneedling services.

But in the meantime, don't forget to do upkeep with recommended must-haves available at Greenwich Medical Spa: Add Bio Serum by Neocutis to your anti- aging regime. It's "the most intensive scrum available, with an unprecedented concentration of growth factors, which are critical for aging skin and play a major role in new cell growth, collagen and elastin production and distribution."

Vitamin C plays an essential role here, too. "We love Super Serum by iS Clinical because it's not only the most advanced Vitamin C in the market, but it's also for- mulated with pharmaceutical grade botanicals, with no parabens or toxins."

A STILL GROWING TREND: ULTHERAPY

Second to Coolsculpting, the fastest growing trend is the skin lifting and tightening Ultherapy procedure — think of it as a non- surgical facelift with no downtime.

"The ideal candidate is someone between the ages of 35 and 60 who has mild to moderate skin laxity and does not want or is not ready for a facelift... If you are looking to lift your skin, have more of a contoured jaw line, tighter submental [under chin] and look rejuvenated, then Ultherapy is the right treatment," explains Pooya.

For maximum results, some clients opt to follow Ultherapy with Botox and fillers, and to and maintain with Bio Serum at home.
