The discovery of CoolSculpting started with a hunch. A scientist at Harvard University followed an observation that eating popsicles may be giving children dimples. The observation led to the discovery that fat cells can be harmlessly sculpted away to create the body of your dreams.

What makes us different:

The adult human body contains a set number of fat cells which are constantly being replenished. Losing weight causes fat cells to shrink but does nothing to affect the total number of fat cells or their location in the body. CoolSculpting is a revolutionary therapy that eliminates fat cells rather than simply shrinking them.

How it’s done:

Fat cells freeze more quickly than regular cells, meaning that it is possible to annihilate fat cells without harming the tissue around them. First, you will visit with a specialist to decide which parts of the body to target with the CoolSculpting method. The specialist will then place a vacuum-sealed gel pad over the target area. You will experience a chilly sensation which will dissipate over the first five to ten minutes of treatment. During treatment, you are free to use your phone, catch up on email, and play games. The fat cells in the target area will freeze and be discarded by the body’s natural immune system. Rather than causing weight loss, CoolSculpting allows you to change the shape of your body and eliminate those problem areas.

CoolSculpting is non-invasive and includes no required downtime. Target those problem areas and reshape yourself into the swimsuit figure you have always wanted.

Things can get a little awkward with all these turkeys around, though, if you suffer from “turkey neck” (sagging skin below the chin or jaw). Luckily, Forever Young and Trim offers neck lifts to correct this issue!

With aging, you can lose the definition in your jaw line that you have always had. An aging neck may appear loose or saggy, and some people may notice the weakening of the platysma muscle. Fortunately with today’s advances in surgery we can turn back time with a yoULift 90-minute procedure. Imagine looking naturally 10 years younger in just 10 days and love what you see in the mirror. Face-lifts of old (your mother’s face-lift), were a major surgical procedure, requiring you to be put under general anesthesia, hospital stay and long recovery period. Additionally, often the lift resulted in a significant change to the persons look (unnatural), which made it very obvious to others that a lift had been done.

Don’t get confused with the turkey this Thanksgiving. Call Forever Young and Trim today to schedule your consultation: 954-440-1820.

You may have seen or even experienced what happens with sudden weight loss. The skin can’t cope with the drastic change in size and doesn’t bounce back. Instead you get sagging, wrinkling skin that no one would want to show off! Which, is the opposite of what we want when we lose weight, duh… So Ben Greene of the Huffington Post shared some tips and information about what to do to tighten skin during and after a weight loss.

Why Skin Gets Loose

Our skin is elastic, it grows and shrinks, bounces, and moves with us. Your skin is the body’s largest organ and its composed of cells, tissue, fiber, blood vessels, and all sorts of other pieces that stretch and contract depending on how you treat them. When you lose weight too quickly, you shock the skin and it doesn’t have time to adapt to the new shape. The older you are, the poorer your nutrition, if you don’t stay hydrated, have excessive sun damage, or you smoke the harder it is for your skin to respond to the change in size and shape. As an effect of this, the skin just stays the same size and shape it once was. So you get those unwanted sags and wrinkles.

Tightening Loose Skin

Sagging skin is inevitable while loosing weight, but don’t fret, as long as you take care of your body and lose weight properly and healthily, your skin will follow suit soon after your weight is gone. It takes time, but the elasticity of the skin is a magical thing. As you shrink, it will follow you, just follow these 4 tips. Depending on how much weight you lose, it can take up to two years for your skin to bounce back.

  1. DON’T LOSE WEIGHT TOO QUICKLY.Extreme crash dieting and spending hours upon hours at the gym doing cardio, you can lose massive amounts of fat AND muscle. The floor is basically ripped out right from under your skin and it can’t react. This will earn you mounds of skin folds on your stomach, arms, legs, and possibly your neck. Try to aim for no more than 1-2 pounds of fat loss a week and add in some weight train to build muscle and stretch the skin.
  2. STAY HYDRATED.Water is pivotal if you want to maintain skin elasticity. Your total water intake a day is generically recommended to be about 2 liters a day. Stick somewhere around that and make sure you pay attention to signs of dehydration to make sure your skin bounces back from anything you do to it.
  3. WATCH THE INGREDIENTS OF WHAT YOU EAT.Collagen and elastin are what you need to eat to keep springy skin. The protein that helps the body produces these two wonders is found in cottage cheese, milk, legumes, tofu, beans, seeds, nuts, and fish. The oils in some of these foods can also help your skin as well.
  4. CARE FOR YOUR SKIN.Avoid harsh ingredients such as the sulfates that can appear in soaps and shampoos, limit your sun exposure and make sure you use sun protection. The chlorine in water, hot water, and tanning booths can also damage the elasticity in the skin, so be careful and limit your time spent around these.

Do You Need Surgery?

The skin can, in the end, only handle so much before it can’t be contracted anymore. A 9 month pregnancy won’t permanently damage the skin, however, 20 years of 100 pounds extra, can possibly damage it beyond return. In this case, there are simple procedures that can tighten the skin surgically.

While permanent damage is possible, you should be able to prevent a large amount of the sagging as long as you take it slow and follow these tips. It isn’t a short road, but it will be better in the long term when you have minimized the sagging of your skin to potentially nothing.

Summer may be gone, but one of the perks of living in Florida is the fantastic fall season: the sun continues to shine, and the temperatures cool from stifling heat to near perfection.

This Florida fall fantasy has hit a snag–luckily, Forever Young and Trim has a solution.
