    Botox Day Tuesday July18

    Healthcare of the Future

     

    Botox Day is Tuesday July 18 with discounts on Botox and fillers such as Juvederm.  Botox is $13/unit or $195/syringe (normally $16/unit and $240/syringe) and fillers are 10% off.  Voluma is an injectable filler that augments and lifts the cheeks and Volbella subtly augments the lips and improves perioral wrinkles.  New product Vollure for fine lines and wrinkles.

    Technology may yet save our spiraling cost of health care.  A recent article and book by cardiologist, Eric Topol, M.D. talks about using smart medicine and specifically our smartphones to not only decrease costs but provide a more complete picture of our health to our physicians.

     

    Here are several specific examples.  There is an ultrasound probe that attaches to a smartphone that scans most of the body.  It created a “medical selfie” that the author used to self-diagnosis a kidney stone.  There is a FDA approved wearable sensor that monitors all vital signs from home allowing those in need to avoid being hospitalized.  Finger sensors connected to the smartphone can show the heart rhythm and be relayed to any physician.

     

    (Did You Know?   Dr. Topol works at the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego.)

     

    In the future our health records will exist with us and not through hospital medical records.  We will access them through the cloud, our phones or other digital ledger.

     

    LA DOLCE VITA: 

     

    A ten year old’s response to “What is Happiness”:  “If you are talking with someone who is sad, then you should tell them to do what makes them happy.  If someone doesn’t know what makes them happy, then I would ask them if they would like to play”.  Boy Scout Emmett Jaworski

     

    WHAT’S NEW?

     

    Cellfina, www.cellfina.com, is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least three years.  The best candidate has dimpling that is not caused by loose skin.  The benefits are a long-lasting, single, in-office treatment that usually takes under an hour.  No general anesthesia is needed and downtime is limited in most cases to the day of treatment.  96% of patients were satisfied after two years.  The cost normally is $4,000-$6,000 but the introductory price is $3,000 for a limited time.  Call 513-793-5772 for a complimentary consultation or more information.

     

     

     

    Vollure is the newest filler for fine wrinkles.  It doesn’t project as much as Juvederm but is smoother and lasts up to 18 months.  Volbella is a lip filler that DOES NOT exaggerate the lips but improves wrinkles and creases in the lips and the skin just above the lips.  Studies show it lasts for about a year.  Come in and see what it has done for Diane, Crystal and Dianna.  Voluma augments the cheeks and lifts some of the lower tissues.  The pictures below are of Volbella for lip enhancement.
