Summer is in the rear-view mirror. Labor Day is past and the kids are back at school. While we’re all fast-forwarding to the end of 2014, in some ways it feels like a NEW year is just beginning. Maybe it’s because back-to-school means more me-time for moms, including those of us here at Dr. Peter Capizzi’s Stillwater Plastic Surgery. So, in the spirit of the season, here’s a quartet of fall beauty tips from the Mothers of Stillwater:
TAMMY RYAN, R.N., L.E. and MOM
Tammy asks, “Do you have a free hour?” Chances are you do with the kids now back at school. CoolSculpting is a no-needles, no-surgery, no-pain treatment that freezes away fat. “Dr. Capizzi and our team have developed new treatment techniques for quicker results.” Some fat loss will be apparent immediately, but your body disposes of the frozen fat over a period of about eight weeks. Sometimes a good diet and workouts are just not enough for moms to shed stubborn fat. “CoolSculpting just might be the solution,” Tammy says.
MICHELE LAWS, R.N. and MOM
Michele says that regular use of Botox is like a drink from the fountain of youth. She recommends focusing on forehead wrinkles, especially the glabella (the furrow between the eyes) and crow’s feet. There are other uses too, Michele notes. Botox is approved to treat excessive perspiration and headaches. Botox is one of the most commonly used pharmaceuticals in the world, but, as Michele points out, “injection technique is absolutely critical. Collectively, we have literally decades of experience and great results at Stillwater.”
STEPHANIE ABERNATHY, Patient Administrator and MOM
“It’s a personal decision. Every woman knows when the time is right for breast augmentation surgery,” says Stephanie Abernathy. She goes on to explain, however, that early fall is a preferred time for so many women because “we just have more free time with the kids back in the classroom.” Dr. Capizzi is the cosmetic breast surgery expert in Charlotte, which translates into faster recovery times for moms. “Patients do need to avoid heavy lifting for a few days, but activities of daily living, including caring for kids, resume almost immediately. Heavy workouts in a few weeks,” notes Stephanie, concluding, “now’s the time, ladies!”
Stephanie and daughter Ella Kate enjoy a pre-back to pre-school treat.
ALI KRAUS, Surgical Tech, Aesthetician and MOM
Ali says fall is a great time to change things up! Ali recently switched to ZO Skincare products and is not looking back. “I’m a product junkie,” Ali explains, “but I am absolutely sticking with ZO.” She loves ZO because the assortment, created by Dr. Zien Obagi, has something for everyone – for all skin types. “Patients see results quickly and, when a patient uses the entire ZO system, often a complete transformation.” Ali’s final back-to-school tip comes as the mom of three-fair skinned children. Ali slathers her children with Elta Clear sunscreen every day, rain or shine. “I know they’ll thank me for it down the road,” notes Ali.
Ali’s three loves: Ella, Bradlee and big bro Jack.)
