Posted by | Cellulite, Fat Reduction, Skin Care, Spider Veins | No Comments

When you are young, you cannot figure out what all the hype is about getting older and aging. You are excited to meet the milestones of “growing up.” However, as the years tick by faster than you are prepared for and one day you realize that supple, smooth face you’ve stared at for years is starting to sag, your self esteem can take a big hit. Whether it is premature aging or that you are actually hitting those big numbers each birthday, wrinkles will inevitably appear and the vitality and youth in your skin will eventually fade. But do not be disheartened. Thanks to modern technology and the advances in science, many procedures carried out by Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology can actually erase the signs of aging from your skin and body.

1-Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles

When the fine lines around your eyes are rapidly reproducing or that wrinkle between your eyebrow seems to be deepening day by day, we have several solutions for these. Botox is widely known for plumping up the area under the skin for a more youthful appearance. And now Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology proudly offers Volbella fillers, a new option without excessive swelling. It is gives a more natural look when you want the fine lines around your mouth removed or fuller lips.

2-Vanishing cellulite problems

Your propensity to developing more cellulite as you age can be attributed to genetic factors, no matter what the scale reflects. Cellfina is one of the most revolutionary procedures out there to get rid of unsightly cellulite. This minimally invasive procedure disrupts the taut connective bands under the skin creating that unattractive, dimpled look. The results can last up to a year and give you the smoothness you desire.

3-Removing spider veins

Shorts, skirts and bathing suits can be sources of great anxiety if you have varicose veins. Not only are these embarrassing but they can be quite painful too. Dr. Ted Lain Dermatology in Austin offers an effective tool called Sciton Nd:Yag laser treatment for spider veins that will help bring back your confidence.

4-Tighten sagging skin

A natural process of aging involves loss in skin elasticity. Over time, once youthful skin begins to droop, making your age visible to all. But with Ultherapy, a nonsurgical method of tightening sagging skin, will help lift falling eyebrows, upturn the areas around your mouth, vanish the “turkey neck,” and add a buoyancy to your skin again.

5-Reduce fat in unwanted areas

With the Vanquish system, this FDA approved treatment literally melts away the fat under your skin, contouring the areas of your body that have gone soft. Sometimes, no amount of sit ups or aerobic exercise can melt fat in these particular areas. Vanquish vanishes these fat deposits to deliver a flatter and firmer result.

Why Those Last Five Pounds Seem to Stick Around

Posted by | Fat Reduction | No Comments

You’ve stuck to your New Year’s Resolution pretty well so far. March is beginning, and you still get yourself to the gym a few times a week. Plus, you’ve replaced all the Twinkies and chips in your house with fruit and nuts. Go ahead—pat yourself on the back. You deserve it.


Thanks to your healthy habits, the weight came off quickly and easily from the start. But the closer you’ve come to your ideal body weight, the harder weight loss has become. Those last few pounds just don’t want to let go. Here are a few reasons that you might have trouble with the final five pounds.

What Your Momma Gave You

If your parents were overweight, you may have the same genetic tendency. All the exercise and dieting in the world can’t change your genetic code. Fortunately, PLoS Medicine published a study in 2011 showing that only about two pounds of total body fat can be blamed on genetics. Your parents’ obesity doesn’t directly lead to your own, but your genes could be holding on to those last few pounds.

Getting Older

None of us can stop time from passing by, so aging is inevitable. As our bodies grow older, our metabolism slows down—about 1-2% per decade after 20. That small percentage translates to about 150 fewer calories burned every day. Plus, our society has become generally less active; a sedentary lifestyle slows down your metabolism even more.

Biology 101

Just like any animal on the planet, human beings are designed to survive. Our bodies crave fat and sugar, send hormones to make us hungry, and store up extra energy all in an effort to survive a harsh and dangerous world. Except that harsh and dangerous world, in which we don’t know when the next meal is going to come, no longer exists for many people. Hunting for food has been replaced with hunting for a bargain at the grocery store. While our world changed, our biology didn’t, and we are left with the same instincts we’ve always had.

Fat Reduction in Austin

With age, genetics, or biology working against you, shedding those last couple of pounds may seem impossible. But Dr. Ted Lain has your secret weapon: the Vanquish system. This radio frequency treatment is at the forefront of fat reduction technology in Austin. It uses radio waves to target, heat, and eliminate fat cells so they never swell up again.

The Vanquish is the largest contouring instrument in the industry, targeting your entire midsection at once. You can sit back and let that stubborn fat disappear. Don’t let uncontrollable factors control how you feel about your body. Call Dr. Ted Lain today for a fat reduction appointment in Austin, and finally say goodbye to the last five pounds.

Look Good for the Holidays with Body Contouring from Dr. Ted Lain

Posted by | Fat Reduction, Skin Care | No Comments

Take one look at a shelf of magazines and you’ll see that our society is obsessed with finding the next best weight loss technique. Around the holiday season especially, we see people jumping on the latest diet and workout trends in an attempt to slim down. You too might be wondering how to shake off those last few pounds before your family comes into town and the heavy holiday foods land on the table. After all, just because you’re wearing a bulky sweater doesn’t mean you have to be bulky underneath.

But when it comes to weight loss, it can be difficult to tell the fake fads from the revolutionary breakthroughs. Diets abound, ranging from Paleolithic eating to Weight Watchers. Others approach weight loss from the exercise angle: CrossFit, yoga, Zumba, and rowing, to name a few. And everyone will tell you about the amazing results you’re sure to get with their product. You may not even know where to start.

Have You Ever Thought about Body Contouring?

For many, achieving their ideal weight is not a matter of liposuction or surgery; instead, it’s a couple of persistent inches around their waist that just won’t come off. If you’re in that boat, you may feel like the tips and tricks in the magazines don’t work. No matter what you try, your midsection remains the same.

Well now there is a solution for you, and it’s more than just a fad. Body contouring with Dr. Ted Lain in Austin can provide that last little boost you need to banish the muffin top. Our system, Vanquish, wipes out fat cells with no pain and no misshaping. Plus, you start to see results quickly—often after the first session. There is no down time and no skin damage. Just pure fat reduction. Before you stop believing your eyes, let us explain how it works.

Hi-res VanquishDD_July 2013

The Ultimate Weight Loss Procedure

The Vanquish system uses radio waves to heat and eliminate the layer of fat cells underneath your skin in the midsection. The radiofrequencies target fat cells exclusively, so your skin and other tissues, while warmer than normal, are never harmed. At a certain heat the fat cells die, which means they won’t be able to swell up again.

A body contouring appointment with Dr. Ted Lain in Austin is as easy as lying down for thirty minutes. We will position the Vanquish over your stomach area then leave it alone. The tool is the largest in the industry so it covers your entire midsection in one sitting. Forget uneven bulges or dimples—the Vanquish leaves your stomach smooth and sleek. In 4-6 weekly sessions, you will feel like a new man or woman.

Why wait until New Year’s to reach the shape you’ve been dreaming of? We all know those resolutions only carry us into February anyway. Instead, try a weight loss plan with results you can see and feel at the end of the tunnel. You’re so close to where you want to be; now take the last step to get there. Give us a call today before the holiday season is over.
