See How You’d Look After Facial Rejuvenation

Plastic surgery is a divisive subject among women who are over 45. One group wouldn’t hesitate to revitalize their faces with invasive and non-invasive treatments, facelifts to injectable fillers. The other? Well, they disdain the very idea!opener

“More and more women are having some sort of facial rejuvenation today,” said Geri Brin, founder of FabOverFifty.com. A recent poll of 160 women on the website revealed that 54 percent have undergone non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures, while 32 percent have had invasive plastic surgery. “Others think any kind of treatment might just be the eighth deadly sin,” Geri jested.

Until now, a woman could only determine the effects of plastic surgery by visiting a plastic surgeon, who would manipulate her photo with a fancy machine. If you didn’t want to pay $150 or spend the time  at a consultation, you were out of luck.

Thanks to technology, a brilliant new tool, designed by New Look Now, will let you see how you could look if you had any one of a number of facial procedures, and you don’t have to leave your house. All for only $20!

Interestingly, a whopping 96 percent of the women polled admitted that they would be curious to see how they’d look after facial rejuvenation, including those who claim they’d never have anything done to their faces!

The innovative tool is a cinch to use, and once you’ve submitted your responses, and a photo, you’ll have your New Look within 24 hours. If you love what you see, and wish to consult with a leading board certified plastic surgeon in your city, New Look Now can arrange it.

“Now that women can actually see how different treatments will make them look, it takes consultations to new levels, by easing fear of the unknown,” said Devon Niccole, the creator of the New Look Now tool. “Women don’t hesitate when they’re offered the opportunity to try the visualizer,” Devon explained.

If you’re one of the 96 percent of women, over 45, who would love to see what you’d look like after facial rejuvenation, New Look Now is offering 60% off its regular $50 price to use its visualizer.

jowlEver since Hannah noticed the first sign of jowls on her face, she’s been thinking of having plastic surgery to get rid of them. She’s vowed for years that she would “grow old gracefully,” and never let a scalpel get near her, but she really hates those jowls and wants to see them go. They’re definitely not “graceful.”

Top 5 Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Procedures

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons
(ASPS) reported that the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in 2014 increased 4% from 2013, and a whopping 154% from 2000.

Here are the the most popular.

Under the brand names Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport, this toxin is injected into areas of the face to block muscular nerve signals and weaken muscles so they can’t contract. As a result, you’ll see a reduction of wrinkles and smoother skin. Common sites for this injection are the Crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines on the forehead.

It’s Time to Squash The Stigma of Plastic Surgery

The stigma of plastic surgery is no longer
an issue for most women; if anything, a well-done
nip/tuck is something to be proud of, and shared
with girlfriends.

It’s also no secret that advances in medicine mean that cosmetic procedures are safer, more efficient, and more effective than ever. Despite these facts, however, five reasons stop many fab women over 50 from moving ahead and booking appointments for aesthetic procedures they’d love to have.

As one of Houston’s busiest cosmetic surgeons, I have some good news: These challenges shouldn’t be enough to keep you away from having your dream cosmetic treatment.

Challenge # 1: MONEY

No matter who you are, the cost of plastic surgery will always be a concern. Even though health insurance rarely covers these elective procedures, cosmetic treatments are becoming increasingly affordable on any budget. The most respected cosmetic surgeons also offer several financing options. This can help to get your desired procedure today—when you really want it—without saving for months or draining your bank account.

Whittle Your Middle with UltraShape!

This post is sponsored by Syneron-Candela, the makers of UltraShape.

Have you been battling a “muffin top” the last few years that you just can’t eliminate or reduce, no matter how much you exercise or how wisely you eat?

A new non-invasive treatment that’s quick and painless, could help you whittle your middle.

Unlike other fat-reduction treatments that reduce fat using heat or freezing technologies, FDA-cleared UltraShape uses painless pulsed ultrasound waves to break the fragile walls of fat cells below the skin, which then allows the body to eliminate the fat through natural processes. UltraShape’s gentle focused UltraSound destroys those fat cells while keeping surrounding tissue, muscle, nerves and blood vessels intact.

What’s more, the treatment doesn’t require anesthetics and or leave lumps, bumps or bruises like other fat reduction treatments do.

UltraShape can target specific trouble spots in the abdominal area, such as love handles or that little tummy bulge, and it destroys fat cells immediately. Results are smooth without lumps or uneven areas of the skin.

A slimmed-down look can be achieved in as little as two weeks, significantly faster than other fat-reduction technologies. UltraShape generates an average fat reduction of up to 2.5 inches.

The full procedure requires three 45-minute sessions, spaced two weeks apart. They even can be done on your lunch break, since there’s no downtime.

{Giveaway} Non-Invasive Ultherapy Treatment, Valued At Up To $5,000

In case you haven’t heard the great news, you can effectively lift your sagging facial and
neck skin, without surgery!

Ultherapy, a non-invasive cosmetic procedure, uses ultrasound technology to direct heat to the underlying layers of your skin. This technique “lifts, tightens, and tones,” says Dr. Kevin Tehrani, a New York board-certified plastic surgeon. The treated areas heal as your body stimulates collagen production, creating a tightening effect. Not only is Ultherapy designed to improve the chin, brow and neck areas; it’s now FDA-cleared to work on décolletage wrinkles, too!

The Truth About Your Tummy Tuck and Weight Loss

There are many myths and misconceptions surrounding tummy tucks, starting with the popular belief that a tummy tuck is the perfect way to lose weight. If you’re overweight and have decided to slim down once and for all, you may be surprised to learn that a tummy tuck is not a “quick fix” that will eliminate extra pounds as a shortcut to your dream body. Although it is possible to lose weight by having some surgeries, a tummy tuck is not one of them. However, once a person has reached a healthy weight, a tummy tuck can be an ideal way to fine-tune the figure and enhance weight loss success.

A Really Cool Way To Zap Fat And Gain Confidence

To our FabOverFifty Friends: This is a sponsored post for CoolSculpting.

Dana, a recently divorced, Fab-Over-Fifty friend, works hard to keep her body in shape, and it shows. But now that she’s started dating again, the cellulite on her thighs is bothering her more than ever. “The dimples on my outer thighs never go away or even decrease, no matter how many leg exercises I’ve done over the decades. And my muffin top appeared overnight,” Dana says.

“I may sound vain, but I wouldn’t be comfortable wearing a bathing suit around the man I’m dating now, no less having him touch or see me nude.”

Although many women would be ecstatic to have bodies like Dana’s, it’s understandable that she needs all the self confidence she can get, after being out of the dating market for 23 years. “I’d like to feel as good about my body as possible,” she says. “It’s hard enough starting over.”
