3 Things to Ask Santa For This Year

Are you in the process of making your list and checking it twice? If you want to make sure that you get exactly what you want for Christmas, then we have a few suggestions for you. Based on some skin care concerns, Dr. Jack Bertolino has created a list of a few different procedures that you may want to ask for for Christmas.

Acne Scars

If you thought that you’d be done with your acne in your teens but you still have acne scars in your adult years, then Dr. Bertolino may recommend a treatment like microneedling. Microneedling is ideal at treating a variety of skin care issues including acne scars. By targeting the top few layers of your skin, microneedling encourages the natural production of newer, healthier skin in its place; leaving you with fewer signs of acne scars in the process.

Cellulite

If you loathe your cellulite, then you’re not alone. Cellulite is one of those genetic things that even the fittest of people can get; making it that much more frustrating. To help treat your cellulite, Dr. Bertolino may recommend a treatment called Vaser Smooth which works to actually break up the dimpling to leave you with smoother skin.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Depending on the severity of your fine lines and wrinkles and where they are located, you may want to ask Mr. Clause for either dermal fillers or Botox. Botox is typically used around the eyes and across the forehead whereas fillers are used around the nose and mouth.

Before you land on one of these procedures, Dr. Bertolino will want you to come in to our office for a consultation. During your consultation, he will be able to determine which procedure is going to give you the best results. Are you ready to learn more?

Lost Weight but Still Have Cellulite? How We Can Help

Nothing can be quite as discouraging as losing weight before summer. Not only can weight loss alone be hard enough, but reaching goals on the scale and having the body of your dreams can sometimes look like two completely different things. For instance, although that number on the scale may be a dream come true, you may still have cellulite on your buttocks and upper thighs that make you feel discouraged. Luckily, here at our office, Dr. Jack Bertolino treats a variety of concerns including cellulite. Let’s take a closer look at cellulite and cellulite treatments.

Anyone Can Get It

Although there are some genetic implications in regards to cellulite, it can strike any person at anytime— even if you have a supermodel body. In fact, you may be surprised to know that some of Hollywood’s hottest celebrities have enough cellulite themselves to keep them out of a swimsuit.

It Can Be Treated

Because cellulite doesn’t necessarily always respond to diet and exercise, it can seem impossible to get rid of. However, with our ThermiSmooth 250 or SmoothShapes procedures, we can help you get rid of that unwanted cellulite and finally show off the body you’ve worked so hard for. By smoothing out the dimpled skin from the inside out, these treatments help patients get rid of dimpled, cellulite skin with no downtime at all.

During your initial consultation at our office, Dr. Jack Bertolino will conduct a brief physical examination and help determine what cellulite treatment is best for you.

Take advantage of our special that’s running until June 1st where you can get 20% off your first cellulite reduction treatment and 25% off of your second treatment. Ready to schedule your appointment? Contact our office today and call: (716) 633-6100.

Does Dieting Get Rid of Cellulite?

Cellulite Treatment Williamsville, NYNo matter who you are or how skinny you may be, as a woman, you are still susceptible to getting cellulite. In fact, even Serena Williams who is one of the most athletic women in the world has cellulite. Even though the majority of women have cellulite, however, it doesn’t make you feel more confident when you have to hit the beach in a bikini. So, how can you get rid of cellulite? Can diet alone do the trick? Read on to learn more.

Focus On Reduction

The main thing to focus on when discussing the correlation between diet and cellulite is a reduction, not elimination. As mentioned previously, even the skinniest, most fit women have cellulite, just not as much as those who are chronically overweight. If you are overweight and have a lot of cellulite, diet can help reduce it, but it won’t necessarily eliminate it.

Focus On Whole Foods

You are what you eat. So, if you eat a diet that is high in processed fats and sugar, you are more likely to be overweight. Eating a diet filled with whole foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats, can help you get rid of your appearance of cellulite and help you feel more confident in your body.

Diet can’t necessarily get rid of cellulite, but it can cut down on the appearance of it. If you are a healthy weight and live a healthy lifestyle, then changing your diet may not impact the appearance of cellulite. However, Dr. Jack Bertolino can treat your cellulite with a state-of-the-art treatment that will help get rid of your stubborn cellulite and help you feel more confident.

DE-MYSTIFYING CELLULITE

CelluliteIf you have cellulite you’re not alone.

Appearing on our thighs as “orange-peel” dimples, it’s name sounds like a serious medical condition, but it is merely a cosmetic condition and is not physically harmful.
It affects approximately 85% of women at some point during their lives. And the frustrating thing is, it affects women who are otherwise slender and fit.

What is it?

  • Cellulite is not caused by toxins in your body. It is nothing more than normal fat beneath your skin. The fat looks lumpy and bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker.
  • Having cellulite doesn’t mean you are overweight. However, if you are overweight, losing weight may reduce cellulite.
  • Cellulite gets worse with age; hormones seem to play a role in its appearance. As we age our bodies produce less estrogen which can mean poorer circulation, a decrease in new collagen production and the breakdown of older connective tissue.
  • It’s true that cellulite runs in families. If your mother and grandmother had cellulite, you have a better chance of developing it.
  • Regular exercise, both aerobic and strength training, cannot cure cellulite but in many cases exercise can help prevent or reduce its appearance.
  • Cellulite tends to be less noticeable on darker skin.

Other factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is include:

  • Poor diet
  • Total body fat
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Hormonal changes
  • Thickness and color of your skin
  • Fad dieting
  • Slow metabolism
  • Dehydration
  • If you have tried dieting, exercise and maybe even one of those highly advertised cellulite creams but have not seen the results you desire, at Smooth Solutions we offer a revolutionary high-frequency laser cellulite treatment called VASERsmooth.
  • VASERsmooth is safe, faster than other types of lasers and provides more predictable results.
  • VASERsmooth reduces cellulite through tissue tightening, cuts cellulite-causing fibers and promotes new collagen production within your body.

Call us at 716-633-6100 today and let Dr. Bertolino discuss the advantages of VASERsmooth technology with you. We look forward to meeting you!
