Wrinkles are for wimps!

There’s an Irish proverb that goes like this: “Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

Okay, we agree. We all want to ”grow old” in the sense of long life. It’s the appearance of aging that we have a problem with! More and more of us feel that, while aging is inevitable, looking old is not an option.

After all…who wants tired, saggy, rough-looking skin at any age?

Our skin is one of the largest organs of our body and provides a natural defensive barrier to the outside world. Skin can project a state of vibrant health or it can give the impression of a tired, worn-out person, even when that person is very healthy on the inside.

Cosmetic companies know this all too well.

Skin care makes up about 27% of the total cosmetic industry and includes skin moisturizers, cleansers, facial products, anti-acne, and anti-aging products. Those products don’t come cheap. A 2-ounce bottle can sell for more than $200.

With Madison Avenue chanting the mantra “Wrinkles are for wimps”, women and men both willingly spend big bucks in an attempt to keep their skin looking young. We dole out money, trying anything that will prolong and enhance a more youthful look.

While there are the surgical options of facelifts and neck lifts, these invasive procedures can be expensive and require downtime.

Fortunately, there is another way!

Introducing MD Pen Fractional Microdermal Needling.

Now available at Guyer Institute, this procedure is on the cutting edge of modern, skin regeneration technology. The perfect choice for acne scar treatment and anti aging skin care, MD Pen helps produce smoother and younger looking skin – without the side effects and downtime of cosmetic surgery and lasers.

The MD Pen device can be used on parts of the body where tired, aging skin is most visible, such as the face, hands, neck, and chest.

Following a crisscross, then a diagonal pattern, the MD Pen devise is used to create micro channels in the skin of the treatment area. These micro channels significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin to leave skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform in appearance.

Platelet-Rich Plasma: The Secret of the Stars!

If desired, an additional boost to rejuvenate of the skin can be achieved by combining an application of a patient’s own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to the skin during the micro-needling procedure. This procedure is very popular with celebrities.

The micro channels created by MD Pen allow for absorption of the PRP into the skin, promoting tissue repair, cell growth and collagen production. Afterwards, the remaining PRP is massaged into the skin.

So, pay attention to the mantra. If you agree that “wrinkles are for wimps”, give us a call. Your skin will thank you.

Could the fountain of youth come in the form of a pen?

Have you any idea how much money Americans spend on cosmetics each year?

It’s a mind-blowing number.

Spending a staggering 38 billion dollars yearly, we lead the world in purchasing cosmetic products! Ten billion is spent each year on skin care purchases alone!

Clearly, the cosmetic companies have tapped into a basic human desire; to appear beautiful to others.

We’ve all heard the adage ”beauty is only skin deep”. Yet, we willingly spend billions on creams and moisturizers in pursuit of a more visibly youthful beauty.

When it comes to our largest body organ (yes, our skin!) we want it to appear radiant and healthy. Our actions, both subtle and overt, show we feel great looking skin is one of the keys to beauty.

While we may not spend the reported $140,000 per year actress Jennifer Anniston spends on beauty supplies and treatments, most of us will gladly shell out hard-earned money seeking a more healthy and youthful look.

So when something is introduced that really does “turn back the clock” on aged looking, damaged skin, it is very exciting news.

Such is the case with a new, non-ablative skin regeneration therapy Guyer Institute is now offering called MD Pen Fractional Microdermal Needling.

Micro-needling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a cellular regeneration technology that can deliver real results in less time and with less discomfort than more aggressive, high-energy treatments.

“How does it work,” you ask?

MD Pen is a microdermal needling device that creates a pattern of micro channels in the treatment area. This could be the face, hands, neck or chest area. These micro channels significantly increase the production of collagen and elastin to leave skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform.

The micro channels also enhance the skin’s ability to absorb medical grade topicals, like anti-aging serums and skin lighteners, when applied during or immediately after the procedure by the Director of Aesthetics at The Guyer Institute, Christina Hemp.

New collagen, elastin and capillaries are formed, leading to the reduction of scars and discolored tissue, and to the enhancement of your skin for a smoother, firmer, and younger look.

Isn’t it time for you to have younger-looking skin?

MD Pen is an excellent treatment for many common skin conditions including:

  • Acne and other scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Photo-ageing
  • Fine lines
  • Uneven skin texture and complexion
  • Discoloration

We are confident MD Pen can give you the smoother, younger looking skin you desire-without the side effects and downtime of cosmetic surgery and lasers.

Now, that’s a promise even Jennifer Anniston would like!

Call us for a consultation today.

Vanity Sizing alternative | CoolSculpting Procedure Indianapolis

CoolSculpting® – the REAL alternative to VANITY SIZING

Let’s face it…

If VANITY was a movie that charged admission, we would all willingly purchase a ticket.

The simple truth is, we all desire to feel good about ourselves and want others to perceive us favorably.

Oh, we may not show it on the same level as narcissistic Hollywood celebrities- (remember Gloria Swanson’s ‘Norma Desmond’ character’s famous line from the movie SUNSET BOULEVARD – “I am big, it’s just the movies that got small”)?

But vanity plays out in many ways.

When we shop for clothes, we may try to fit into clothes marked the same size as we wore years before. Clothing companies know this and use “vanity sizing,” the labeling of clothes with sizes smaller than the actual cut of the items.

For men, those size 34 slacks might really be closer to size 36 or even bigger.

Women have to cope with an even greater variability in sizes – the same woman might wear a size 4 in one brand and a size 10 in another, according to Stephanie Clifford of the New York Times.

Clothing companies do this for one reason: they know the downsized labeling make customers feel good.

And that got us to thinking about how good CoolSculpting® can make you feel.

After all, it’s a surgery-free body sculpting treatment that gives you an honest and healthy way to get back into those “college-era” size clothes without having to be part of the clothing companies shenanigans.

This FDA-cleared procedure permanently eliminates unwanted fat from your body. It’s not a fad; the results are real and the fat is gone for good.

Denise Kaler, certified technician in CoolSculpting® procedures, says the process is uniquely suited for those fatty areas resistant to diet and exercise:

“It’s ideal for people that just have those stubborn spots. Maybe it’s the love handles, a muffin top; inner thighs that they just don’t like”.

CoolSculpting® actually freezes and kills unwanted fat in those areas most critical to achieving a size-slimming, good fit. Then, the dead fat cells are naturally eliminated from your body. The result is a noticeable, natural-looking reduction of fat in treated areas.

So, don’t fall prey to the “vanity-sizing” smoke and mirror games of the clothing companies. Call us today for the real and lasting image you deserve.

CoolSculpting meets Anna Wintour: the psychology of dressing well

While we’ve all heard the expression “You are what you eat”, fashion divas would also add “You are what you wear!

While the message has been presented in many ways through the years, its meaning is unmistakable and always the same – The clothes you wear and the way you groom yourself will change the way other people treat you. Your appearance will transmit that message to their subconscious minds – are you like them? Are you different? That message will determine whether they listen to you or ignore you, trust or distrust you.

We think Anna Wintour; editor-in-chief of Vogue and one of the most important figures in the fashion world said it best:

“If you can’t be better than your competition, just dress better.”

So, how does all this relate to CoolSculpting®, you may be asking. “Can CoolSculpting® help me dress better?”

The answer is simple. We all feel better when we wear the clothes that make us look our best. But, unwanted fat may be preventing us from wearing those eye-catching outfits.

That’s where CoolSculpting® can help.

Ideal for freezing and killing the fat cells in those stubborn areas like “muffin tops” or thighs, CoolSculpting® lets you once again wear those lovely, but long-neglected clothes and once again look like a million dollars.

The reality is, it’s not necessary to buy trendy, expensive designer wear in order to look great – It’s simply a matter of looking great in the clothes you have. And, when you know you look good, you’re going to give off an air of confidence others will notice.

That’s the psychology of dressing well.

CoolSculpting® is a body-contouring treatment that helps you get back into the clothes you want. It is the only non-surgical way to eliminate unwanted fat using a patented, cold technology. Most patients start to see results as early as three weeks following treatment and experience the most dramatic results over the next 1-3 months.

The amazing part about all this is, when you look better, you feel better.

The fashion maven (Anna Wintour) herself might sum it up this way – CoolSculpting® can be a cool accessory to any great wardrobe ensemble!

Cinderella Use Coolsculpting Treatments | Guyer Institute MedSpa

Did Cinderella have CoolSculpting® treatments?

If you’ve ever watched Cinderella (and who hasn’t?), there’s a subtle, but basic, fashion statement being played out. And it’s this – FIT is the most important aspect of your clothing.

Think about it. Her sisters dressed her in rags while they wore finery, but somehow Cinderella managed to look the most beautiful. Why? Because the FIT was perfect!

Let’s face it; no matter your size, the FIT of your clothes makes a difference in the way you look and feel about yourself. And that’s where CoolSculpting® can help!

At Guyer Institute, this non-surgical body-sculpting alternative to liposuction targets unwanted fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. It’s a revolutionary technology that can freeze the fat away from those difficult areas of the abdomen and thighs, the very areas that prevent you from having that perfect-fitting image you desire for yourself.

Okay, we get it…Cinderella may never have been plagued by a persistent ‘muffin top’ or fatty inner thighs, but a lot of us mere mortals are! And our own Denise Kaler and Christina “Cricket” Hemp, both certified in CoolSculpting®, have seen the benefits experienced by hundreds of patients over the past few years.

“It’s ideal for people that just have those stubborn spots and are looking to target unwanted fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.”

You will like what you see. 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.

Okay, we can’t guarantee you’ll look as good as Cinderella after a single CoolSculpting® treatment. But, we’re confident you WILL notice an improvement in how well your clothes FIT.

CoolSculpting® – the benefits of freezing away those unwanted fat cells!

You’re probably familiar with a very famous quote from Henry Ford about his early cars: “They can have it in any color they like as long as it’s black.”

Unless you happen to have a monopoly, that attitude would never fly with consumers today. With a mantra of “WIIFM” (what’s in it for me!), today’s buyers have a greater desire to know the benefit before making the purchase.

And such is the case with CoolSculpting®.

When patients first ask us about this revolutionary body-contouring procedure, the real question they want answered is…


So, let’s talk benefits:

  • Expect natural-looking results

Everyone wants to know “How will I look after a treatment?

After one session, the treated area will, over the course of the next six months, come to appear smoother and more toned.

The majority of the frozen fat cells will naturally work their way out of your body in the first two months, but many see some fat reduction after just four weeks!

Following CoolSculpting®, patients typically see a 25% reduction in the treated area, with results as early as 3 weeks. The most dramatic results are typically seen 12 weeks after treatment.

Many patients are satisfied after one treatment. However, during your consultation, we can discuss a treatment plan that will meet your specific treatment needs.

  • The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared.

CoolSculpting® uses controlled cooling to target and freeze away fat cells. Developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, it’s the only FDA-cleared fat freezing technology. The treatment is gentle and safe for your body – but tough on stubborn fat.

  • It’s convenient and comfortable

Each area treated requires a 60-minute application. During the minimally invasive procedure (that means no cutting or incisions) you can read, watch our large screen TV, get work done – or even sleep!

  • Your treatment will be done by Qualified Professionals

As with any medical procedure, it’s important to have your procedure done by trained, certified professionals. Denise Kaler is certified in CoolSculpting® and has treated hundreds of patients over the past year. The Guyer Institute is a certified CoolSculpting® practice as well.

In fact, all our people have been through advanced training protocols to ensure the best possible results. And, they are ready to share their observations of the amazing results they’ve experienced first-hand.

In summary, CoolSculpting® is not a fad. Results are real and the fat is gone for good.

Now, that’s a benefit even Henry Ford would like!

CoolSculpting® – Focusing on the FAT REDUCTION, not the weight loss

“A person who aims at nothing is sure to hit it.” – Anonymous

There’s a common thread in the advice successful people give when it comes to reaching a goal: focus with laser-like concentration on the goal, blocking all outside distractions.

We like the way Venus Williams, winner of two US Opens and five Wimbledon titles expressed it: “I don’t focus on what I’m up against. I focus on my goals and I try to ignore the rest.

In our diet-conscious society, this simple advice is worth remembering. While the focus seems to be on weight control, in reality we would do better to focus on fat reduction.

A recent article by wellness lifestyle site
entitled the Difference Between Losing Weight and Losing Fat highlighted the important differences between the two and why our goal should always be to lose FAT, not WEIGHT.

You might be thinking “Isn’t losing fat the same thing as losing weight?

Actually, no, it’s not.

Your focus should be on losing FAT, not WEIGHT.

Just losing weight results in the loss of everything – fat, muscle, fluids, organ size. That’s not good. You don’t want to lose valuable muscle, because that usually results in long-term weight (and FAT) gain. With no muscle tone, you end up being a smaller version of a fat person.

While losing weight other than fat is unavoidable, the loss of muscle mass will often cause a rebound effect that leads to weight gain. And, as we gain weight, those fat cells become larger. Hence, the “yo-yo” effects so often experienced in dieting, where we lose weight only to gain it back (and sometimes in excess!).

CoolSculpting® targets only the fat cells!

CoolSculpting® freezes the fat cells, thus reducing their number in the treated area. Less fat cells in an area mean less fat cells available to get bigger again later.

While weight loss surgery can still leave fat cells, a CoolSculpting® treatment actually eliminates the fat cells for good. People who have CoolSculpting® experience a thinner physique and their clothes fit better. In short, they look better.

As Venus Williams said, “keep the focus on your goal and ignore the rest.” CoolSculpting® helps you focus on the right thing, FAT removal, while ignoring all the weight loss hoopla.

CoolSculpting® – The POPSICLE-Effect That Inspired FAT FREEZING Success!

History is full of examples of simple observations that led to great inventions. Take, for example, Benjamin Franklin’s kite-flying escapade using a key. He observed that lightening is a form of electricity. That observation paved the way for the invention of the lightning rod and, later, of batteries.

Then, of course, there’s the ‘popsicle effect’ observation that led to the invention of CoolSculpting®, the most effective, non-invasive fat reduction procedure available today.

“What’s that”, you say? Popsicle effect?

It’s true. Renowned Harvard University scientists, Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, observed that some children got dimples due to eating popsicles.

But, what was causing the dimples?

Believe it or not, it was the popsicles! When held against the inside of the cheek for an extended time, they lowered the temperature in the immediate area enough to actually impair fat metabolism and cause disruption (lysis) of the fat cells.

This caused the fat cells to actually freeze and die. The dead cells were metabolized by the body for fuel, leaving a cheek with reduced fat content and a dimple.

The “POPSICLE” effect observation led the two doctors to begin experimenting on animals. This ultimately led to the first cryolipolysis medical devise cleared by the FDA in 2010. CoolSculpting® actually freezes the fat off!

How cool is THAT?

If you’ve ever sought help in losing some unwanted fat, you know how frustrating it can be. There seems to be an endless array of diet books, exercise regimens and equipment, diet supplements, surgical procedures- all promising the dream of an Adonis-like physique.

Even if you try these methods and achieve results, you often find yourself left with disappointing, stubborn excess fat. It could be the ‘love handles’ or ‘muffin tops’ in the stomach area, or those inner thighs where impenetrable fat refuses to go away despite herculean effort.

CoolSculpting® is designed to freeze the fat away in these troubled areas.

CoolSculpting® is uniquely suited for fine-tuning, sculpting, and reduction of fatty areas around the waist, thighs, hips, and vulnerable areas that generally are unresponsive to exercise and diet.

So, enjoy that Popsicle! Then, call us to schedule your CoolSculpting® treatment.

CoolSculpting® – An ‘Ice Age’ Procedure Whose Time Has Come?

Can a 21st century, FDA-cleared procedure be best described as “Ice Age” in origin? Now there’s an interesting question: if anthropologists tell us there were few, if any, “obese” cavemen, is it possible our early ancestors knew something we don’t?

In fact, we’re referring to the “coolest”, most innovative, non-surgical way to lose annoying bumps and bulges of stubborn fat. Known as CoolSculpting® (cryolipolysis), this revolutionary technology targets and freezes unwanted fat, then eliminates it naturally eliminated from the body.

CoolSculpting® has been available for only five years. But, in that short time, this fat reduction procedure has proven itself to be an effective technique for treating stubborn fatty spots with results that can be visibly dramatic.

This post is the first in a series related to information about this exciting, new quick-fix fat reduction treatment that is sweeping the country.

The first question anyone asks, when hearing about CoolSculpting® for the first time, is “What, exactly, is it”?

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive fat reduction treatment, a cheaper and quicker way to unwanted fat, that’s resistant to diet and exercise. When compared to liposuction and other invasive procedures. With CoolSculpting® there’s no downtime, no after-care or follow-up, no incisions, no needles, no cutting of any kind. You return to your daily life immediately following a treatment.

What, exactly, should you expect? A special applicator is placed on the treatment area, chilling the skin and, over time, freezing and killing the fat cells in that area.

Treatment areas of the body vary. For men, this could mean those ‘love handles’ in the stomach area. For ladies, that might mean the ‘muffin top’. Or, perhaps it’s the inner thighs where stubborn fat is preventing you from having the trim look you would like.

Where does all that “frozen fat” go when it dies? After being crystallized by CoolSculpting®, those fat cells are eliminated naturally by the body over the four to six months following treatment, with the most dramatic results typically apparent 12 weeks after treatment.

The end result? A more sculpted you.

So, what’s the skinny on CoolSculpting®? Simply put, it is an FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment option that eliminates stubborn fat otherwise resistant to diet and exercise.

And, unlike the cavemen’s Ice Age procedures, CoolSculpting®’s results are lasting!
