Q A For Your Skinformation. I want to look slimmer for my upcoming high school reunion, so I’m interested in having the CoolSculpting procedure done. However, I understand that it takes two months to see results, and I don’t have quite that much time. Is there another treatment that has quicker results? Our patients love CoolSculpting -the completely noninvasive, effective treatment to reduce bulges, but waiting for results can make two months seem like an eternity. Now we are able to combine CoolSculpting with the Z-Wave treatment, doubling the speed of fat loss, research shows. The Z-Wave, also called “The Fat Cracker” is quick, painless, and helps maximize the results of Coolsculpting. The Zimmer Z-Wave is the latest development in the treatment of cellulite. Q A I have a skin condition called “keratosis pilaris” which causes lots of small red bumps on my arms. I have used every lotion you can think of, including prescription ones, but none of them has helped much. Can you suggest anything else I could try? Keratosis pilaris is a very common condition resembling red goosebumps, often seen on the arms and thighs. While not harmful, the bumpy appearance is bothersome to many patients. Lotions can be helpful, we like the new Glytone Body KP Kit. A combination of smoothing body peels, microdermabrasions, and/or lasers has proven successful in reducing the bumps and redness. Our patients are very satisfied with the results we achieve for this stubborn condition. Glytone Body KP Kit $64 Jody Comstock, M.D. Tina Pai, M.D. 520.797.8885 6127 N.
