Cellfina Tampa

by Stephanie Schlageter

Dimples may be cute on babies and cheeks, but they don’t belong on your rear view. And if you’ve tried creams, massages or even laser treatments, you probably discovered that nothing could eliminate the look of cellulite long term, if anything even helped at all. Until now. Get ready for the end of cellulite thanks to Cellfina, the only treatment with an FDA-proven track record to provide visible results with one brief treatment and great results.

Just this morning it was announced that aesthetics giant Allergan (you probably know it as the brand behind Botox Cosmetic, Juvéderm and Latisse) will be adding another beauty-centric company to its portfolio: Zeltiq Aesthetics, the fat-reducing brand that uses the power of freezing fat in its CoolSculpting device.

The sale is slated for about $2.48 billion and is strictly for the CoolSculpting device. It's the latest in a list of companies that Allergan has been acquiring.

Let’s face it. The arms are one of the hardest areas on the body to firm up and get rid of that extra flab. Yes, you can diet and exercise. And, yes, liposuction is an option. But not everyone is willing to go under the knife, and sometimes lifting weights can only give so much improvement.

Today, CoolSculpting announced its latest FDA-clearance, and this time it’s for the arms—a big win for those who have always hidden under long-sleeve tops and battled bingo arms. “There are 29 million people in the U.S. interested in CoolSculpting, with more than 14 million expressing concern about unwanted arm fat, making arms the third most popular area for consideration of noninvasive fat reduction,” says Mark Foley, president and CEO of ZELTIQ. We think that’s reason enough to push the treatment, which uses a special cooling technology to target fat cells and eliminate them, into the realm of arm perfecters.

Although I've never been formally diagnosed with TMJ, I've been told by dentists that I have a very strong bite and I've been labeled a "clencher." It wasn't until a couple years ago that I began feeling pain in my jaw when I woke up in the morning and again after a long day at work while I was driving home. I also often suffered from headaches, which resulted from the clenching.

My dentist said I clenched my teeth and that I could benefit from a night guard, which I dished out big bucks for and have worn every single night since (it's called an NTI and it prevents my back teeth from touching so that they can't clench while I sleep). However, I still felt a bit of soreness in my jaw, even after several months, and wondered if there were any other options aside from having my jaw broken with surgery to reposition it. Ironically, during this time, I had an appointment scheduled with my dermatologist, Dr. Beer, for something unrelated and the topic of my jaw came up. He said, "You know you can have it injected with a neuromodulator (off-label) to help relieve some of the pain."
