Top 10 Non- Effective Total B.S. Home Remedies for Skin Tightening

By Skin Tightening

As you age, the skin on your body loses elasticity. However, this loss of elasticity can leave your skin looking less than appealing, which can lead to you wanting a skin tightening procedure. But before you start looking up Exilis vs Ultherapy  or trying to figure out where to go to get your Exilis skin tightening procedure with the ever-popular Exilis Ultra, here are a few home remedies you can waste a lot of time doing to try to help get your skin back to that beautiful, supple way that it used to look. Don’t be surprised if they don’t work.

Make a Scrub

Scrubs are a great way to get some exercise as you try to make your skin look and feel amazing. A coffee scrub can help you get rid of all of those coffee grounds that you never know what to do with. To make a coffee scrub, you should first drink a LOT of coffee so you are really jacked up. Then jump on one leg while shouting “I want tight skin”, loud enough so the neighbors can hear. Then fix yourself a cocktail because if you are going to buy into this BS you better be sloshed. After that mix several ingredients like cinnamon, brown sugar, and coconut oil and use them on your neck, chest, and face, and grandmother. Rinse with warm water and run around the block twice.Good luck!

Witch Hazel

This awesome plant names after a witch? . Regardless, it has so many exciting benefits for the skin I can hardly remember any of them. But, before you head to bead, simply soak  your balls in witch hazel. Then, use the cotton ball to liberally apply the witch hazel to your skin. After letting it sit for five minutes, you can simply head to bed. There is no need to wash it away and waste any more time.

Coconut Oil

This popular oil is a great way to help tighten your skin at home. All you have to do is massage a teaspoon of coconut oil onto your trouble areas for at least five minutes before heading to bed. When you massage the oil, it gets deeper into your skin to produce better results. By leaving the oil on your skin overnight, you are giving yourself a bigger healing boost.

Olive Oil

Just like coconut oil, olive oil has great tightening benefits for your skin. It gives your skin a healthy glow as well. Massage the olive oil into your skin for a few minutes after your evening shower or bath. The massaging helps the oil penetrate the skin to provide better results. You can even use the olive oil to replace your moisturizer.


You probably didn’t realize that cucumbers are great for your skin. They help tighten your skin without any side effects. Cucumber is also extremely refreshing. You can use cucumber juice, pulp, or a mask on your skin to help tighten and tone while still giving your skin that refreshing feel that you crave.

Aloe Vera

Much like cucumbers, Aloe Vera has many great benefits for the skin. It works as a natural moisturizer, and it can tighten your skin at the same time. You can use Aloe Vera gel, or a mask to get the best results for your skin.

Make a Mask

You’ve always known to use masks on your face, but an egg white and honey mask might be the key to tightening your skin right at home. Separate a single egg from the yolk to give you the whites. Mix this egg white in with two tablespoons of honey. Apply the mask as normal, and let it rest for 15 minutes. Use warm water to wash away the mask, and pat your skin dry. This mask is great for your neck, chest, or face, and you can use it once a week.


If you want a new take on a skin mask, try using yogurt. Just add a few drops of lime juice to yogurt and apply it to your skin. As you apply the mask, massage it into your face for about 10 minutes. Let it rest on your skin for another five minutes before rinsing away with warm water. You can even use this mask twice a week for optimal results.


Just like in the mask mentioned above, honey is a great option for your skin. It can hydrate your skin, keep your skin clean, and reduce redness. The combination of these things helps your skin look younger and more refreshed as well, but it can also help tighten your skin and prevent sagging. Try mixing it with things like turmeric or olive oil for best results.

Epsom Salt

Though not as common as some of the other remedies mentioned, Epsom salt can be a great way to tighten your skin in larger areas like the thighs or butt. Just run a warm bath and mix in 2 cups of Epsom salt at the same time. Soak for about 15 or 20 minutes to get optimal results.


If you find yourself looking at your sagging skin and cringing, and you have tried the home remedies above, it’s time for a real option that actually works like Exilis skin tightening.

Laser Skin Tightening

Top 7 Benefits of Laser Skin Tightening

By Skin Tightening, Smart Liposuction

If you’re looking to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin, laser skin tightening may be your best choice for several reasons.

It’s minimally invasive

Viora and Exilis skin tightening is a great choice because it’s minimally invasive. An infrared light source heats the collagen under the skin’s surface and tightens the skin above. There is no recovery period associated with the treatment. Side effects are mild and resolve on their own within a few hours. Since the treatment is non-surgical, there are few medical risks associated with it.

You’ll see immediate results

You’ll be pleased with skin tightening from Viora Reaction and Exilis Ultra before and after results. After a treatment, patients see visible results immediately. Skin will feel and look tighter and smoother because the process works on the collagen underneath your skin, and you can use it anywhere on your body. Your face, neck, abdomen, arms, legs, and buttocks all will show firmer looking skin after one treatment. Many patients opt for laser skin tightening rather than liposuction or a mini tummy tuck. For the most dramatic Viora Reaction and Exilis Ultra before and after, you should purchase a package of four treatments about a week apart. Some centers even offer additional acoustic shockwave therapy to enhance the results and encourage collagen generation.

It’s a permanent solution

Skin Tightening treatments are often a permanent solution. The treatment  prompts new collagen growth, and the areas treated start to look tighter and younger from the presence of new collagen your body is making. Since the treatment activates your collagen’s regenerative capabilities, the effects continue to improve over the months following the treatment. Your Viora Reaction and Exilis Ultra before and after pictures will show the results from increased collagen activity continuing for months after the treatment.

It’s FDA Approved

Viora reaction skin tightening and Exilis ULtra are FDA approved to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity. Each treatment session takes as little as thirty minutes or as long as an hour. Patients are able to return to work and normal activities immediately following treatment. Some people experience minor side effects like skin sensitivity, redness, or minor swelling but these side effects usually resolve themselves in a few hours.

It’s almost pain free

It is not as dramatic as a facelift but requires no anesthetic and is non-surgical and is almost pain free. Some patients describe it as a hot stone massage

It’s the affordable option

.A traditional facelift can set you back $8000 to $15000 depending on the the amount of work you want done. Add recovery time where you can’t work or play, and the facelift can be a costly and  unnecessary luxury for most people. Skin tightening treatments can cost anywhere from $500 to $3500 depending on the size of the area and how many areas, and there is no recovery time. And it is so easy that you can get your skin tightening treatments during your lunch break.

Appropriate for everyone

Anybody can see results with viora reaction and Exilis skin tightening . It works for men and women. You’ll see the best results if you are between the ages of thirty and sixty.

Mommy Makeovers

“I Want My Body Back!” — The Truth about Mommy Makeovers

By Smart Liposuction

“I haven’t had a flat stomach since my first son.”

“For the last year or so, I just can’t get back to the body I used to have.”

“I exercise a lot, and I watch what I eat. Will I ever look like me again?”

These are common complaints heard by a host of women following a pregnancy. As is well known, women’s bodies can change dramatically after having a baby, whether it be the first child or the latest, and it can be a source of anxiety for those who aren’t ready to trade their figure in for motherhood. The reality is that most women’s bodies are significantly affected, and that having a baby is not a trifle.

This can be looked at in one of three ways:

  1. Glass Half-Full – “This is my new body, and I accept it.”
  2. Glass Half-Empty – “I will never be happy with how I look.”
  3. The Alternative View (which we’ll call “Glass Refilled”) – “I am actively going to change my body to look the way I want it to.”

For those who choose option #3, let us say: bravo.

Mommy Makeovers

If you are one of the women in the last category, you may be wondering: “What are my options?” There are many techniques to help bodies return to their former glory, varying in efficacy, price, and severity. Done concurrently, these processes are known by the general term “Mommy Makeover” — that is, a series of procedures that alter a woman’s figure post-pregnancy. In this post, we’re going to explore the most popular and the most successful.

Breast Augmentation

One of the main concerns of women after pregnancy — and especially after breastfeeding — is that of sagging breasts. Unfortunately, there is a large genetic component at play, and with most, this is something that can’t be helped. While activities such as light weight lifting  or purchasing new supportive bras can help in the short term, most women will only return to their previous perkiness with some cosmetic assistance.*

There are two options for breast augmentation:

  1. Breast Augmentation via Liposuction – For select patients, there is the option to transfer fat, which is removed via liposuction, to the breasts, resulting in fuller, more natural breasts. The benefits are obvious — removing fat from areas where it isn’t wanted, and putting it in areas where it is sounds like a no-brainer. Consult your doctor to see if this procedure is right for you.
  2. Breast Lifts – This surgery excises loose skin and tissue, in order to create a tighter feel and a more youthful appearance, firming up the breasts, and maintaining a natural aesthetic.
  3. Breast Implants – Traditional implants will definitely firm up one’s breast by replacing lost volume and correcting asymmetry, as well as increasing the size.

Tummy Tucks

The area most obviously affected by pregnancy is the stomach. After housing your child for nine months, the skin stretches, and fat accumulates in the core region, attaching itself to the love handle region, the hips, and the tummy. Cellulite, another genetic proclivity, can also affect this area, and no amount of sit-ups or dieting can substantially alter this.

  1. Tummy Tuck – Also known as an abdominoplasty, tummy tucks are a major surgery designed to remove excess skin and tissue, all while strengthening and tightening the abdominal wall. The procedure, when done properly, will hide the scarring as best as possible, though some residual scarring will most likely be visible.
  2. “Mini Tummy Tuck” – The mini-abdominoplasty, or “mini tummy tuck”, is substantially less invasive,than an and gives wonderful results in most patients. Another advantage: it costs significantly less. It involves the procedure known as smart liposuction — liposuction done with laser —  which is less invasive and less traumatic. It tightens skin, has a faster recovery period, and is performed under local anesthesia.

Other Options

  •  Laser Body Sculpting of the abs, hips and thighs
  • Cellulite Reduction with Laser and Smart Liposuction
  • Fat Transfer; May be to the Buttocks, Breasts, Face or all
  • Laser Skin Tightening for Skin and  Tummy tightening

Each woman handles their “mom body” differently, and no one option is better than the other, save in the eye of the beholder. For more information on Mommy Makeovers, click here, or consult your physician.*

Botulinum Toxin and Eyebrow Asymmetry

Study: Botulinum Toxin and the Treatment of Eyebrow Asymmetry

By Botox

Out of a study from the University of British Columbia comes an interesting finding regarding the use of botulinum toxin (such as BOTOX) and addressing eyebrow asymmetry:

Botulinum toxin Type A (BoNT-A) has a history of use to correct eyebrow height asymmetry, with the common belief that it works by inactivating the brow depressors. It has also been assumed that deeper injections of BoNT-A would amplify the effect. However, a new study by researchers at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, Canada, suggests that therapeutic benefit is not correlated with injection depth. The paper, just published in Dermatologic Surgery, was based on a prospective study of women with eyebrow asymmetry.

Study authors performed split-face BoNT-A injections on 23 women with the condition. The amount of drug and locations of the injections were identical on both sides, with deep injections administered on the side where increased brow lift was needed. Brow height was evaluated and photographed at the time of baseline injection and at four weeks post injection.

The analysis showed no significant difference in the change in brow height over four weeks between the sides that had deep versus shallow injections. The researchers believe that the diffusion of BoNT-A between muscle layers precludes accurate targeting of the muscle belly, where the drug would theoretically have the most effect.

The lead author, Dr. Jason Sneath, M.D., F.R.C.P.C., told Cosmetic Surgery Times that “although we had not documented that a deeper injection was more effective, we presumed that delivering more botulinum toxin to the belly of the corrugators might weaken these muscles to a greater extent, thereby allowing the brow elevating frontalis to lift the medial brow more.” Dr. Sneath added that “while (these findings) may change the practice of some practitioners who have utilized this technique, we believe (they) also add to our understanding of the ability of botulinum toxin to diffuse into muscles after injection.”
