Cellulilte is one of those topics that most of us in the aesthetics space tend to be leery of. We’ve heard it all before; reduces dimples, pulverizes lumps and bumps, smooths skin, yada, yada, yada. These miracle cures often come with some discomfort, more downtime than expected, a longterm commitment to maintain the improvement, and a hefty price tag. Nonetheless, ‘cellulite’ continues to be a beauty buzzword that gets our attention because 80-90 percent of women, depending on who you ask, have it somewhere.
The long awaited first-ever cellulite injectable, called QWO from Endo Pharmaceuticals (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) now has FDA approval, and the data is

Fast forward to almost 20 years later at the age of 42, I do Pilates six days a week—and while I’m definitely in the best shape of my life, I still see room for abdominal improvement.

The weather has certainly been unpredictable this year, so it’s no wonder that summer, let alone your itty-bitty bikini body, hasn’t really crossed your mind. But, you’re on the clock now as Memorial Day 2019 is just around the corner.
You are not alone. Many people including RHONY Sonja Morgan have #BikiniDenial or that uh-oh feeling that sneaks up on you when your realize its almost swimsuit season, but your body isn’t swimsuit ready.
Coolsculpting freezes away small pockets of resistant, unwanted fat that can mar an otherwise perfect beach body — without surgery and little to no downtime. Several treatments are usually needed for optimal effects.
