You are out to lunch with two of your girlfriends, and the conversation turns to how great you look. You confess that you’ve lost some weight, but you are still self-conscious about your clothes bulging in certain areas. No matter how steadfast you have been in your workout routine, you cannot rid yourself of the saddlebags on your hips and the love handles on your waist. Your friend nods understandingly and proceeds to grab the nagging bulge under her chin. She says that she’s tried dieting and exercise, but her double chin is as obstinate as her young teenage daughter, and it will not budge. Your other friend adds her story. After the birth of her two kids, and with the natural process of aging, the skin around her vagina has become lax and perpetually dry, contributing to lackluster and painful intercourse. Together, you all decide to have these problems addressed so you can go back to feeling sexy, confident and empowered.

It’s About Loving You Valentine’s Day celebrates love, so why not start with a little self-love? Celebrate a Galentine’s Day with your friends, to treat and address your persistent problem areas together. Instead of spending time hanging out over drinks, you can spend your valuable time finding solutions for your stubborn shape, sagging skin, or slackening sexual areas. Your busy life means that you need options that are outpatient and nonsurgical, relatively painless, and vibrantly successful.

Whether you are looking to contour your figure, lose your double chin, or feel sexy in your southern region, Physicians’ Clinic of Iowa, PCI, can provide the solutions you need to target those problem areas and get your confidence back.

At your consultation, Dr. Kahlil Andrews and Courtney Albritton, PA-C will customize a treatment based on your individual concerns and goals.

Some of the most popular options include:

How CoolSculpting Can Carve Away Those Love Handles

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved, noninvasive fat reduction procedure that utilizes a technology called cryolipolysis. Cryo-lipolysis originates from two scientific terms, cryo (meaning cold) and lipolysis (meaning cell death), cryolypolysis targets your unwanted, stubborn fat cells using a controlled cooling technique that freezes your fat cells to a temperature of 39 degrees Fahrenheit, a temperature at which fat cannot survive. The fat cells are lysed, metabolized and released from your body.

Can CoolSculpting Help You Lose Weight?

It is important to note that CoolSculpting does not aid in weight loss efforts. CoolSculpting can shave off a couple inches from stubborn areas like your love handles, bra bulges, inner and outer thighs, or abdomen, but it cannot help in losing pounds. Once the fat cells are eliminated from the treated areas, they are gone for good. No more love handles! The fat will not return to those areas, but a healthy lifestyle is suggested to maintain the results. There is no downtime with this procedure and you can promptly return to your work and other activities. With immediate results in 30 minutes, you’ll see maximal results within two to three months.

Say Goodbye to Shapeless Skin and Say Hello to Youthful, Firmer Skin!

What is ThermiTight and how does it work?

ThermiTight is an FDA-approved, nonsurgical, minimally invasive skin tightening treatment for men and women looking to correct loss of elasticity, firmness, and form in their chin, arms, thighs and back regions. ThermiTight utilizes controlled thermal energy, or heat, via a radiofrequency probe that is inserted just under the skin to tighten and firm the skin. The probe heats the tissues to a targeted and safe temperature, initiates the production of collagen and elastin, and accomplishes both skin tightening and fat cell reduction. Depending on the size of the area treated, the session can last up to an hour.

What is Kybella and what does it do?

Kybella is an exceptional solution for those wanting to lose submental fat, also known as your double chin. It is an FDA-approved injection specific for removing the fat under your chin. Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which dissolves or breaks down fat cells found in your chin region. The body metabolizes the fat and eliminates it naturally.

Kybella involves a series of small, carefully planned injections that occur over the span of two to three treatments, sometimes six treatments if necessary. Each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and the effects are permanent.

Revitalize Your Love Life!

What are ThermiVa and the O-Shot and what can they do for your love life?

ThermiVa is a non-invasive radiofrequency technology the improves vaginal moisture, treats mild to moderate stress incontinence and tightens vaginal tissues. ThermiVa also enhances sexual stimulation and can tighten and improve the appearance of the external vaginal tissues. Three monthly treatments are recommended, along with touch-ups every year or so. The O-Shot is a simple and painless injection of platelet rich plasma (PRP) into the peri-vaginal tissues to increase orgasmic response. PRP is a concentrated solution of platelets produced from a patient’s own blood. Platelets contain growth factors which stimulate and rejuvenate clitoral and vaginal tissues enhancing sexual stimulation. ThermiVa and the O-Shot, when combined, can dramatically tighten vaginal tissues, improve stress incontinence and increase sexual pleasure. There is no downtime with either procedure and both can be performed in about an hour. Both procedures are performed by our PA Courtney Albritton in our office. These techniques are giving women a great non-invasive and non-pharmacologic option for vaginal rejuvenation and improved sexual health.

I am beyond happy with my results. I had extra skin hanging from my abdomen after gaining weight from pregnancies. Dr. Andrews was compassionate and understanding about how this affected me and my self esteem.

Since my hysterectomy, sex has been extremely painful. I suffered from extreme dryness and discomfort. I had no sex drive and was no longer able to experience an orgasm. Until, recently, when a friend told me about Courtney Albritton and PCI's ThermiVa treatment. I have had 2 of the 3 treatments and immediately experienced positive results. I am still in awe of the results I have experienced. The procedure was painless. Until ThermiVa, I had come to the realization that my sex life would no longer be what it once was pre-hysterectomy. I highly recommend this procedure.
