Think Again Before Jumping in a Tanning Bed

At Docere, safe tanning is our priority. As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, beauty routines change as we begin dealing with less exposure to the sun and dry skin. With decreased sun exposure, we deal with increasingly pale skin, which for a lot of women, isn’t necessarily a desirable look. For those of you who crave a healthy glow year round, being pale in the winter can cause huge decrease in confidence. It’s a seemingly easy fix to just jump in a tanning bed and develop that healthy glow and warmth we all crave in the winter months.

Think again before choosing indoor tanning as an option. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, indoor ultraviolet (UV) tanners are 74 percent more likely to develop melanoma than those who have never tanned indoors. This alarming statistic is only one danger of indoor tanning; the list goes on. In addition to increased risk of skin cancer, UV radiation can lead to premature skin aging such as wrinkles, lax skin, and brown spots.

You don’t have to endure the winter months pale and dull. Spray tanning is safe tanning healthy alternative to the potential danger of UV damage from tanning beds. You can enjoy the safe, instant gratification of a glowing tan, not to mention your skin will be immersed in the incredible botanicals and vitamins found in the Tan with Kare solution that Docere offers. It’ll provide you with a natural looking tan, and the esthetician performing your tan with spray you with color customized to your skin tone and desired color. You can be assured that your tan will last weeks and provide you with a natural glow for every day use or special events, with no orange color or residue, guaranteed.

Remember, the tanning bed is not worth it. The risk of developing skin cancer jumps by 75% in those who begin using tanning beds before age 30. It may seem like a convenient, quick fix to your helplessly pale skin, but it is strongly suggested to consider a safe tanning alternative, such as spray tanning, or even self tanners. Tan with Kare is an organic based formula, so not only does it provide botanicals and essential vitamins, but it helps to moisturize and clear skin. You won’t be disappointed. To ensure the longevity and life of your tan, check out this checklist for tips to take care of your skin leading up to, and after your spray tan.

Everything You Need to Know About Coolsculpting

The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat.

You may be a little skeptical. Freeze away fat? It all comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are frozen, and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. Check out Estelles Success Story and how she created a new beginning with Coolsculpting.

Docere is a Coolsculpting Certified Practice. We will develop a customized CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your specific problem areas. Your individualized treatment plan will be tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget to help you achieve optimal results. The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately. Learn more here.

In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Take a look at the most common Q&A’s we receive about Coolsculpting.

 Q: Am I a good candidate?

A: Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The   CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

Q: How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?

A: We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.

Q: Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?

A: Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

Q: Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

A: The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

Q: Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

A: Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

Q: When will I see results?

A: You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment. Results and patient experience may vary.

The sooner you set up your consultation, the sooner you’ll see results in the mirror- just in time for the warm weather. Call us at 440-238-3331 to set up a free consultation and learn how Coolsculpting can truly transform your body!
