• Flu Facts CoolSculpting is HERE!!!

    CoolSculpting is a technique to freeze unwanted fat from a variety of areas.  With our “Dual Sculpting” (two machines) the time is halved and flanks or abdomen can often be done in under an hour.  The most common areas are abdomen, flank/side, thighs, hips, arms, back, under buttock, bra line and under the chin.  The fat cells are permanently removed. Best of all is that there is almost no downtime so you can resume your activities the same day!  Call Joni who has 5 years’ experience to discuss your situation 513-793-5772.

    Lower Abs and Flanks:  Before and One Month Post-Treatment

    Mused after watching Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime.  After getting a season under its belt, the characters are familiar but their interactions continue to be captivating.  The season begins in Paris but now is in the New York Catskills at a 1950’s summer camp for adults.

    Flu Facts by the Numbers

    Influenza, the highly contagious viral infection, kills between 12,000 and 56,000 Americans each year.  Here are the numbers surrounding the flu.

    Three to 6 feet is the distance the virus may spread from one person to another.

    24 to 48 hours is the length of time you may have it before developing symptoms.

    Four strains of the flu virus are recommended to be included in the annual vaccination.

    60% of those vaccinated are less likely to get sick.

    (Did You Know?  Mutations of the virus cause the vaccines to not precisely match reducing the effectiveness of immunizations.)

    Ten to 14 days is how long it takes for the vaccine to take effect.

    One and a half is a typical virus’s reproduction number meaning an individual with the flu will spread it to one and a half other individuals.  Measles has a reproductive number of 12-18.
