Dr. Bruce Katz, a leading dermatologist from the United States has spent the last two years researching a revolutionary treatment for cellulite. Cellulite has been a big worry for both women and doctors for quite sometime now. Cellulite treatments are offered at cosmetic clinics as well as centers offering services like laser hair removal. But these treatments only alter the surface appearance of the cellulite. They do not eliminate it from within. Moreover, these treatments need to be performed several times and the results are short term.
The new treatment developed by Dr. Katz makes use of laser to break down the cellulite from beneath the skin’s surface,e and attacks the fat cells and fibrous septae that are the primary causes of cellulite. The laser smoothens out the fat cells and also thickens and tightens the skin by heating dermal tissues. It is minimally invasive and entails just one small incision, which can be covered by a band aid.
Another advantage of the new treatment is that it involves minimal maintenance. The patient can go back to work soon after the treatment. Dr. Katz is confident that the treatment will change doctor’s approach towards treating cellulite. It is predicted to become as popular as laser hair removal and other laser procedures in the near future.

Ultrasound previously used to track a baby’s development, has now found utility in reconstructive surgery. Ultrasound is believed to reduce wrinkles found on the skin, often associated with ageing. This technology is now used to reduce wrinkles on the face, eyelids, brows and neck without any invasive surgical procedure and is performed in skin treatment centers including spas and laser hair removal clinics.
What’s great about this treatment is that is takes only 30 minutes and needs to be performed just once or maybe twice. This technology works by heating the deeper layers of the skin, which leads to more collagen production. This treatment is ideal for people who want to rejuvenate
their skin without getting surgical procedures done. It helps clients avoid downtime related to surgery. The increased production of collagen helps skin look younger and tighter.
Ultrasound is also being used for other cosmetic procedures like skin resurfacing and fat reduction. The results of these treatments are clearly visible about two to three months after the initial treatment is performed. This procedure treats the root of the problem and avoids the use of harmful chemicals for skin enhancement. Ultrasound treatment will soon become as popular as other treatments such as tanning or laser hair removal.
Cosmetic procedures are rapidly gaining popularity. Research shows that the popularity will further increase as these procedures become more affordable due to the development of technology. Some of the most commonly indulged in procedures include tanning, laser hair removal and anti-ageing treatments.
In 2012 various kinds of skin treatments are likely to be at the top of the list of popular cosmetic procedures. Anti-ageing creams that supplement skin with natural biological chemicals will become popular. This technology will be employed by some of the best brands in the industry. Grafting of skin to different areas of body will become more common. This can be performed for various reasons such as hiding scars, re-shaping and plumping.
The popularity of laser skin treatments will continue to rise steadily. Laser hair removal will see some improvements, with new lasers that are extremely effective on dark skin as well as light hair dominating the market. The treatments will also include gentle lasers used to treat wrinkles.
Finally, this year will witness the emergence of various hair procedures. For instance, innovations to help hair grow back, and prevent hair loss and thinning will be popular. Hair transplant surgery will be in high demand. There will also be several treatments to make grey hair regain its original color and shine.
Today the Kardashian family is a global phenomenon. They get paid $25,000 to mention a product in one of their tweets and up to $250,000 just for showing up at a product launch, store opening or nightclub. Their reality show ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ featured on the E! Network is wildly popular. As if this wasn’t enough, the family’s expanding business ventures may now include a magazine.
According to the New York post, the K-Klan is toying with the idea of starting a Kardashian-centric magazine and has approached the American Media Inc for the same. Consumers can expect the magazine to feature all things Kardashian.
Kardashians always manage to be in the news. From Kim’s 72 day long marriage and Khloe’s weight loss to the open support for laser hair removal, everything that the family does makes headlines. The family also endorses several products and brands. For
instance, Kim is the brand ambassador for the US based laser hair removal products seller TRIA. If Kardashian-centric magazine becomes a reality, the K-Klan will not have to depend on other celebrity publication to popularize themselves. Considering the direction this family is headed, a TV network dedicated to the Kardashians is not unimaginable.
