Your body creates new hair follicles with time, which is why the touch up is needed! Laser hair removal is permanent for each follicle treated. This treatment makes hair removal as permanent as possible!

The Smart Lipo Laser from Cynosure was developed in Italy around 1990 and made its debut in the United States early in 2007. Dr. Marino was hand picked by Cynosure to be in the original training group comprised of cosmetic surgeons already skilled in body contouring and familiar with tumescent anesthesia.
She became the first surgeon to perform laser lipolysis in the entire state of Texas and one of the first 10 in the United States and her facility became a training site for other surgeons interested in adding SmartLipo to the services they provide.
The SmartLipo laser is used in body contouring procedures either without fat harvesting or after fat is harvested. It is ideal for smaller areas and helps to lyse residual fat cells as well as to tighten the skin. Extensive research in skin tightening has led to strict protocols designed to produce the very best results and Dr. Marino has remained diligent in putting each new protocol into use very quickly once its benefit had been proven.
The procedure itself is done either with tumescent anesthesia alone or with light sedation. The laser fiber is the same size as a 16gauage needle and this size needle is used to make all entry points, which heal almost invisibly on most people. The laser is placed through the entry point into the subcutaneous fat and is utilized to melt the fat at all levels and then is used on the subdermal tissues to induce collagen production and subsequent skin tightening. The results are a smoother, tighter contour.
So who is a good candidate for this procedure:
Anyone wanting to reduce fat from any particular area on their body. The main restriction is that the BMI must be less than 35 with rare exceptions and the people with the best results will have a BMI <32.
People needing to wear a larger size due to localized fat pockets such as “muffin tops”, “beer belly”, ‘saddle bags” or “bat wings”.
People who are in relatively good health and who are taking relatively few medications. People who maintain an active lifestyle will have the best results.
What are the benefits of Smart Lipo:
It can be performed with only tumescent anesthesia and light sedation
Several areas can be treated on the same day with each area taking around one hour
Results are smoother than with other technologies
Most people have found SmartLipo to be a fast, relatively painless procedure to address unwanted fat and to lead to exceptional results.
WELLNESS & ANTI-AGING
Hormonal balance, adhering to a healthier diet and exercise program and a complete health evaluation are important steps to take towards regaining your health. As a member of The American Academy of Anti-Aging, Dr, Marino closely supervises all wellness clients and customizes their wellness program to fit their current health and lifestyle.
All programs begin with a complete health history form and physical exam by Dr. Marino. Bloodwork is ordered which includes a complete hormonal evaluation if indicated based on your current symptoms. Part of why people rebound from some of the more popular programs is because of the lack of physician input and especially hormonal evaluation. Dr. Marino believes that it is important to determine the cause of your symptoms and to make all attempts at eliminating those causes. This may include hormonal imbalances, stress factors and even food allergies.
Once the evaluation is complete, the program may include any of the following:
1. Customized dietary instructions and exercise program. All patients are encouraged to begin an exercise program and Dr. Marino works with several personal trainers that can enhance your success. Do you remember the Dateline special on centenarians? What they all had in common was that they walked at least 1 mile every day. Regular exercise is critical to maintain health including mental health.
2. LipoVite injections: These customized injections were formulated by Dr. Marino to optimize fat burning and energy. The injections are given weekly and can help you lose up to 4 pounds per week! The customized B complex injection also helps with mental clarity for people already at their ideal weight.
3. Take Action Diet Book: This is the first book of its kind. Written by Dr. Marino after extensively researching the most popular diets of today and formulating the strengths of each into one diet. It is largely Mediterranean in food choices and is low glycemic. It is full of tricks and tips to help make your journey to a healthy weight successful and educate you on better food choices.
4. Cardiovascular evaluation: med spas is host to a cardiovascular screening as effective as a heart catheterization. Assessing your cardiovascular risk is important because it is the leading cause of death in people over the age of 50 and there are things you can do to reduce your risk if it is already high. Your genetics don’t have to determine your destiny. Find out what you can do to have a long and healthy life at med spas.
5. Nutritional and Dietary Supplements: Our current food sources have only a fraction of the nutrients they had 50 years ago. Dr. Marino recommends taking a good multi-vitamin and B100 complex due to the poor nutritional composition of our produce and meats. Even people on cholesterol lowering medication or blood pressure lowering medication or are diabetic can dramatically improve their health with supplements and healthier lifestyle choices. med spas is host to several anti-aging products to help you live strong and live long. Link to Prograde and Link to Proargi9.
These products have allowed a lot of people to reduce if not eliminate many of their medications. Dr. Marino has had most people on anti-hypertensives stop taking their medications within 2-3 weeks of starting on a consistent regimen with ProArgi9 and the cholesterol lowering effect of ProGrade Krill Oil surpasses that of Niacin and other fish oil supplements. Both products also promote a healthier glucose level and allow people to reduce the amount of diabetes medication they take. Visit med spas to find out which supplements will help restore your health and reduce the medications on your list.
