Are You Resort Ready? A Checklist For Looking Your Best This Summer

Are you resort ready? With warm weather vacations coming sooner than you think, I suspect you have a list of things to do.  If you followed last month’s advice, you can check CoolSculpting off your list. You are well on your way to sculpting, tightening, and toning.  You can now turn your attention to those things that will compliment your new look. 

If you procrastinated, then make CoolSculpting your first priority this month. Remember:  Winter is perfect time to start working on your summer body.   If you’ve not scheduled your appointment, now is the time to call for your complimentary consultation at 803-396-2727.   We here at Southeast Sculpting are offering a buy one treatment cycle, get one half-off special.  The more areas treated, the greater the savings.  We’ll also send you home with Alastin’s Transform as our gift to you to accelerate your results!


 Why Transform?  

For those new to Alastin, this award winning, innovative skin care company used its proprietary technology to create and specialize in procedure enhancement products for use by cosmetic physicians.  Used twice a day as “take home therapy”, Transform enhances the fat reduction process as it improves the appearance of skin texture, tightens loose skin, and reduces “crepiness” following a CoolSculpting treatment.


Are there other ways to enhance CoolSculpting’s effects? Try skin tightening with Forma.

CoolSculpting can also be combined with other procedures to enhance its effect.  While inappropriate for large areas on the body, smaller areas can be tightened with our Forma procedure by Inmode.  This treatment remodels collagen and tightens skin by heating the skin’s deep layers with radio-frequency energy.  While Forma is suitable for all skin types anywhere on the body, we usually limit its use to the neck, arms (“batwings”), and smaller sections of the abdomen.  Six sessions one week apart are recommended, however, patients with less laxity may require fewer appointments.

What can I expect? 

Forma gently heats the skin and is therefore pleasant, not painful. The nurse will work in slow, circular motions or long linear strokes depending upon the body part. Some patients report that it feels like a heated massage.


Would you like to be hair free and carefree beside the pool?

After tightening and toning, you may wish to consider removing unwanted hair to complete your “new look.” We here at Southeast Sculpting use the Diolaze XL laser by Inmode to remove unwanted hair.   Ladies ordinarily treat underarms, bikini, and legs while men typically address unwanted facial, neck, chest, and back hair.

How does it work? 

Diolaze XL eliminates unwanted hair through a series of safe, quick, and comfortable treatments.  A laser passes through the skin to the hair follicles, which, in turn destroys the hair and prevents future growth.  Since hair grows at different rates, a series of 6-8 treatments is needed to “catch” the hair at its most mature stage. 


Is laser hair removal for everyone?

Unfortunately, no.  Darker hair reacts easier and better; this treatment does not work well on white, gray, or light blond hair


What should I expect? 

The first step is a complimentary in-office consultation to determine if you are a good candidate.  A medical history, examination of the area, and test spots will be undertaken.  If treatment is scheduled, then you will receive detailed pre-treatment instructions.

Does it hurt? 


Diolaze Xl laser hair removal treatment offers one of the largest treatment spot sizes, making treatments faster and more convenient.  It also has built in cooling which makes the procedure more comfortable.  Some patients report no pain while others report a tingling or a “rubber band snap” in more sensitive areas. Redness and some swelling in the treated area is to be expected but usually disappears in a few hours. 


Let’s review…  the list of “Things to Do” before Spring Break includes:

  1. CoolSculpting to eliminate unwanted fat.
  2. Enhance CoolSculpting effects with Transform take home treatment.
  3. Consider Forma to tighten and tone lax skin.
  4. Remove unwanted hair with Diolaze Laser Hair Removal.
  5. Purchase a medical grade sunscreen. We happen to carry three from which to choose.
  6. Purchase a new swimsuit.
  7. Call Southeast Sculpting + Rejuvenation at 803-396-2727 or book online at to help you make these things happen.  We’re here to help you reach the results you want.

Exosomes - The Next Trend

Whenever I read about aesthetics, I always read articles about the “coming thing”, the “next best thing”, or the” latest and greatest”.


We see lots of men in December, February, and May. They come to buy gift cards for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Mother’s Day. When I see them, I am always tempted to say, “Some of the best gifts are To You, From You”.
