Smart Lipo – A Revolutionary Way to Remove Unwanted Fat

Tiffany ( Masiello) Servey celebrated her 20th anniversary with Beachwood Hair Clinic in April 2014. She has been a pioneer in introducing aesthetics services here. She is a Certified Laser Therapist and trainer for the Low Level Light Therapy System for hair re-growth, adding a wholesale division to manufacture and market the device. When introducing skin aesthetics for skin tightening, acne treatments and non-surgical face lifting, she became a Bio-Ultimate Platinum Technologist and a member of the Medical Spa Society in 2007. Tiffany completed training for the IPL hair removal she introduced in 2008. She personally incorporated PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections for cell hair re-growth in 2009 bringing in Dr. Jack Siebenaler and the SmartPReP 2 Platelet Concentrate System. She has completed training at the Hair Academy and is a 20 year member of the American Hair Loss Council.

Now Tiffany is pleased to have incorporated Smart Lipo into her Cleveland location partnering with Dr. Ali Khan and continuing with Dr. Siebenaler to perform the best liposuction procedure available. She has had the procedure done herself and would be glad to share her success story with you.

Smart Lipo is a revolutionary new device to remove unwanted fat from small areas with minimal downtime, which differentiates from traditional liposuction. It was approved by the FDA in November 2006 and is now the fastest growing cosmetic surgical procedure in the country. Dr. Khan is the most experienced Smart Lipo physician in Northeast Ohio; he has performed over 2,500 liposuction procedures, has trained six physicians in this technique, and continues to train other doctors. Dr. Khan has been doing cosmetic medicine since 2006. He is a member of International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine and a member of The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. He is certified and trained to do Tumescent Liposuction specifically with Smart Lipo and is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Physicians.

Smart Lipo is the most widely used and extensively studied, validated laser-assisted liposuction or lipolysis system available today. It was the first laser introduced for this purpose. With eight years of studies, Smart Lipo has been shown to involve less pain, less bruising and swelling, and provide a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction. The average cost ranges from $3,000 to $6,000.

How it Works
Smart Lipo is usually done in a doctor’s office or clinic. Before the procedure, the doctor will mark the targeted areas and a local anesthetic is used to numb the area. A very small cannula, or tube, (approximately 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter) containing a laser fiber is inserted into the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser’s energy to the fat cells, causing them to rupture, and then be suctioned out. The fluid released from the fat cells is also removed by the body’s natural waste system. The laser also causes small blood vessels to coagulate (gel) immediately on contact, thus resulting in less bleeding and swelling. The laser also affects the collagen in the skin, which later causes the skin to tighten and shrink gradually over the next 6-8 weeks.

This advanced technology can remove fat from the abdomen, buttocks, flanks/love handles, back, face, neck, upper arms, knees, and hips.

Smart Lipo is NOT just for women! Men get liposuction for many of the same reasons women do–boosting self-confidence, body contouring, and resolving stubborn problem areas that don’t respond to exercise. Some men also seek liposuction to help reveal muscle definition beneath the fat, as it can be difficult to show off hard work done at the gym when problem areas refuse to go away. Men and women tend to have different problem areas and for men, the neck and chest are popular areas for treatment, along with the more typical love handles and belly area. Many men also seek liposuction for enlarged male breasts.

Something to Think About Before Hiring a Divorce Attorney

By Lynn Seifert, Attorney at Phillips & Mille Co. L.P.A.

As someone who is a child of divorce, has been through a divorce, and deals with divorce on a daily basis, I know only too well, how hard it can be. A divorce is not only hard for the spouses, but for everyone involved, especially the children. The effect that their parent’s divorce has on a child can last a lifetime and can often affect the decisions that child makes regarding their own relationships in the future. Additionally, research has shown over and over that continued, ongoing, unresolved high conflict is harmful to children of divorce.

The choice that you make when choosing a divorce attorney is very important and will affect the experience you have through the termination of your marriage and the level of conflict. If you choose the wrong attorney, it can create more stress for you and more conflict through the process. The fact is, the more adversarial the divorce, the more conflict involved in the process, the more stressful and expensive it is for the parties. That may be good for the attorneys, but not for the families going through the divorce.

As with any profession, there are good lawyers and not so good lawyers. In today’s society, there are many different styles and approaches to dissolving a marriage. The type of attorney you pick depends on what you want from the divorce. There are some lawyers that are really good at making your spouse’s life miserable. So, if this is your goal (and you have the funds to bankroll it, because it is expensive), there are litigators sometimes referred to as “sharks.” They “play hard ball” and don’t want to talk settlement and prefer to go to trial. However, if you don’t want to spend a fortune to get divorced, I would avoid this kind of attorney.

In my opinion, the best approach to dissolving a marriage, and the one with the least harmful effect on everyone involved, is where the parties and their attorneys can work together to try and reach a resolution. In divorce, there are no winners or losers; it is about both coming out of the divorce with the least amount of damage and able to move forward.

So, if you are facing the termination of your marriage, consider looking into alternatives to traditional litigation such as Divorce Mediation or Collaborative Divorce, which are both non-adversarial processes for the dissolution of your marriage. Mediation is a process where you and your spouse work with a neutral third party (the mediator) who facilitates the negotiations between you and your spouse regarding the division of assets and the terms of your parenting plan when children are involved. A Collaborative Divorce is a structured process where the parties each have a collaborative attorney and the parties and the attorneys sign an agreement not to litigate the divorce. The Collaborative Process also utilizes other professionals, such as divorce coaches and financial neutrals, to assist the parties in reaching a fair agreement that meets both of their needs.

If you are considering the termination of your marriage and are interested in pursuing one of these alternative processes, there are local groups that endorse their use and have attorneys that utilize these processes in their practice. The Center for Principled Family Advocacy (www.famad.com) and The Cleveland Academy of Collaborative Professionals (www.collaborativepracticecleveland.com) both provide a list of attorneys who are trained in these alternative processes and can help bring a more peaceful end to your marriage.

If you or anyone you know would like more information regarding the termination of your marriage in a less stressful and costly manner, please give me a call at 440-243-2800.

Women are Affected by Venous Disease More Due to Hormones Recongizing the Signs and Symptoms

Venous disease is one of the most common conditions affecting our health. It is estimated that about 20% of adults may be suffering from venous disease. Although many people may have visible varicose veins, many others have no visible signs of the disease. Individuals with venous disease range from those with small vein disease (spider and reticular veins) to patients with large bulging varicose veins. When varicose veins are present, patients may experience swelling in the legs as well as skin changes such as discoloration, thickening of the skin, and in advanced cases, skin ulcers. Occasionally, large varicose veins may develop blood clots, a condition called superficial phlebitis. Patients without visible signs of venous disease may have symptoms such as leg pain (aching or cramping), leg heaviness or fatigue, swelling, throbbing, burning, itching or tenderness. Some people also experience restless legs.

Men and women of all ages can be affected by venous disease although women are affected more than men due to hormones. Venous disease has a very strong genetic component but there are certain risk factors that can also contribute to its development. These include obesity, pregnancy, prior trauma, surgery, lifestyle, and occupations that require prolonged standing.

The treatment of venous disease has come very far in the past 10 years. Today we know much more about this medical problem and the diagnosis and treatment is far superior to that of times past. Venous disease can be easily diagnosed with the use of painless, noninvasive ultrasound performed in the office to determine if you have venous reflux. Venous reflux is the back flow of blood in the legs caused by weakened valves in the veins  of the legs.

If you experience any symptoms of the disease, you need to make sure that your physician is aware. Venous disease can be a serious medical condition, which left untreated, can lead to long standing complications.

Treatment for venous disease may involve a procedure called EVLA which is a laser procedure done in the office to close down some of the larger superficial veins. Most patients also require sclerotherapy injections to shut down some of the smaller, more superficial veins of the legs. Treatment can help manage the disease and improve the overall health and appearance of your legs as well as greatly improve your quality of life. Most procedures are covered by insurance.

How to Fight Mosquitoes Without DEET or Chemicals

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could enjoy summer without being eaten alive by mosquitoes?  Good News – You Can!  Read on for some tips to help avoid the itch that comes with Mosquito Bites…

FROM Good Nature Organic Lawn Care in Ohio Blog

How To Avoid Mosquito Bites – Naturally

There are a variety of tactics for keeping mosquitoes from biting you but many involve potentially harmful chemicals like DEET or Pyrethroids. Here are some natural methods to fight off mosquitoes:

Step 1: Use Mosquito Repelling Soap

Studies in the Journal of American Mosquito Control Association show that using Neem Oil and Coconut Oil mixed together will repel mosquitoes for up to 8 hours.  Good Nature offers a Neem Oil soap that in addition to Neem contains B Vitamins, Lemon Essential Oil, and Tea Tree Oil.  All of which have health benefits as well as mosquito repelling properties.  Why not use a healthy soap that also repels mosquitoes?  Note that this soap makes no claims of mosquito repelling, but I’ve found it to be helpful.

Step 2: Consider a Natural Repellent

Instead of DEET, why not use something like “Bite Blocker” which is made from Geranium Oil and has been shown to be effective against mosquitoes.

Step 3:  Eat Some Garlic

I’ve had mosquito repelling success by eating a clove of garlic prior to going out into a mosquito infested area.  I don’t have any scientific data to support my next claim, but can say from experience that eating that clove of garlic seems to discourage others from “close talking” with me.

Step 4:  Consider a Mosquito Yard Barrier Treatment

If you’re in our service area, Good Nature can spray the living areas of your landscape with a natural Garlic Oil.  The smell dissipates quickly to the human nose, but mosquitoes will smell it for 2-4 weeks and avoid your landscape.  We’ve experienced about a 75% drop in mosquito populations.

Step 5:  Eliminate Standing Water

It takes mosquitoes about 8 days to go from an egg to adult, so you should empty any standing water areas you have at least once per week.

Step 6: Beer & Bananas

Some authorities on the subject believe that eating Bananas or drinking beer while you’re (or prior to going) outside can make you more susceptible to mosquito bites.  So, if you’re enjoying a few beers outside you might expect to be a little more attractive to mosquitoes.  You could try to get your hands on Garlic Breadth Beer, a Dogfish Head Beer brewed with garlic to see if the garlic repellent offsets the beer attractant…if you do this, please let us know how it goes!

Step 7:  Protect Your Pets

If you’re interested in protecting your pets from mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks, one thing I’ve found helpful is a Neem Pet Shampoo made with certified organic neem oil. Neem Oil will sooth their skin and reduce the itching associated with bites. Neem Oil is an excellent insect repellent so there may be some repelling effect on fleas, ticks and mosquitoes as well.
