Silhouette Instalift

Silhouette InstaLift is the ideal minimally-invasive solution for many men and women who are interested in a lift in their appearance without major surgery. It offers a new and unique technology to lift sagging facial or neck skin by using sutures with bi-directional cones to safely reposition subdermal tissue. Over time, the sutures will naturally be absorbed by your body while stimulating production of collagen to aid in healthy renewal of your skin. This procedure lifts, contours and restores the mid face, and neck. Plus, this procedure is minimally invasive!

The Liquid Facelift

Over the years, specialized techniques and advances have been made to combat the signs of aging. One of the most innovative treatments, the liquid facelift, is a non-surgical facelift that allows the surgeon to use a combination of products that relax and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Products like Botox, Juvederm and Restylane are strategically injected to restore volume to the face. The advances to injection techniques and the wide variety of dermal fillers now available gives surgeons the ability to create a lifted, more contoured face shape, enabling patients to look younger. Non-surgical liquid facelifts require an artistic eye and are unique to each patient: Dr. Youssef will examine your facial features, discuss your expectations, and then decide which products will deliver the desired results. For example, dermal fillers can be placed to mask under eye bags and dark circles, cheeks can be filled to give a more youthful and full appearance, the nasolabial folds can be softened, jowls can be diminished, the corners of the mouth can be lifted, lips can be plumped, natural shape can be restored to the temples, eyes can be opened and lifted and so much more.

Aspen Ultrasound Treatment for Capsular Contracture of Breast Implant

One of the most common complications following breast augmentation surgery is capsular contracture when breast implant tightens, which causes part or all of the implant to feel harder than normal. In some cases, there may also be some discomfort and the shape of the breast can also be adversely affected. Traditionally the treatment involved a surgical removal of the capsule and the implant.

Aspen Ultrasound utilizes the power of inaudible sound waves to increase the blood circulation around the implant, resulting in a loosening and softening of the breast tissue without additional surgery. This is the only effective, non-surgical treatment option.
If you've had a breast augmentation and noticed some unexpected firmness in your breasts, or any other symptoms that may benefit from an Aspen Ultrasound Treatment, don't wait. The sooner you get started, the more impact the treatment is likely to have.

The Business of Beauty
Q & A with Apo of Classic Designs

Why do you go all the way to Antwerp, Belgium? Can't you get diamonds here in the US?
Of course we can buy diamonds domestically, and often do. However, Antwerp, Belgium has been the diamond capital of the world since the 1500s. When we're in Antwerp, we are in diamond-cutting offices that have multi-millions of dollars worth of diamonds. We literally look through hundreds, if not thousands, of diamonds - cherry-picking the very best of the best. By picking the very best of the entire parcel, we can get the best value for your money. We take great pride in offering the very finest diamonds available anywhere.

Do most stores do it this way?
No. In fact, very few have the option. We are members of IJO, the Independent Jewelers Organization. As an organization of over 800 jewelers who have been screened to be among the top jewelers in America, we are allowed into cutting offices that usually deal only with extremely-large manufacturers. This gives us a great advantage in selection and pricing of our diamond supply.

When's your next trip to Antwerp?
I leave October 20th. We are already taking pre-sales. Customers give me a budget and a shape they want. We talk about what they can expect in terms of quality. Then I go to Antwerp and search through hundreds of carats of diamonds and find the very best for them. If they aren't delighted when they see their diamonds, their deposit is refunded. That has never happened! Everyone has always been absolutely thrilled with what we've found for them. Any size and shape, fancy colors, unusual cuts, matched pairs, you name it. Antwerp has them all. It's what we do.

Microblading has become the hottest new trend in semi-permanent makeup - because who wouldn't want to start each day with beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows!? Microblading will save you time getting ready in the morning. No more drawing on or filling in your brows; plus, your microbladed beauties will never smear. Speaking of time saving, it only takes two appointments and a total of three hours to achieve perfect brows that can last up to two years. What a time saver! During your first appointment, you'll work with a trained professional to achieve your desired shape and color. Upon your approval, hair-like strokes are made to create a beautiful brow. Your second appointment will take place six to eight weeks later to make any necessary touch-ups. The process is perfect for most everyone, but especially those experiencing hair loss or a lack of hair growth. It can be especially beneficial to clients with Alopecia, hair loss secondary to chemo, scars and faded tattoos. The crisp, natural-looking characteristics of microblading make it very difficult to tell that you've even had a procedure done, giving those who would usually have to deal with the unsightly presentation of penciled-in brows a much better alternative. And here's a nice bonus: You can combine microblading with eyelash extensions or a lash lift to save an exponential amount of time getting ready each morning. Wake up looking beautiful and ready to go!
