Approximately 144 million women live in the United States. More than 8 million of those 144 million women are living with heart disease. Women dealing with heart disease are not rushing to go under the knife. Yet simply having heart disease does not make a woman lose the desire to look great. In a recent study women living with heart disease shared their entire lifestyle was changed and became more aware of how they felt about themselves and their choices. After a heart attack or heart surgery women are encouraged to attend cardiac rehabilitation classes. There you learn about stress, exercise and lifestyle changes.
Lately when you look in the mirror you see that stress all over your face. You notice signs of aging, how the skin begins to sag around the face and neck. It’s important to take care of yourself on the inside to feel good on the outside. However, feeling good on the outside can help you take better care of that inside of yours.
The problem is you’re one of the 8 million living with heart disease you worry about going under the knife? There could be complications and many women living with heart disease are on blood thinners or an aspirin regimen. Both can cause excessive bleeding.
You want to turn back the hand of time. Who doesn’t? You thought there weren’t many options besides surgery. Having heart disease makes it even more important to feel you can erase the marks of age and rediscover the self-confidence of youth. You can’t even imagine there is a procedure that guarantees to turn back the hand of time. Especially one that’s slogan is a mini-facelift — no downtime — no pain. Great news, today you can soften the effects of time on your face and turn back the hands of time safely without an anesthesiologist to assist. The Timeless Transition 360 with Titan is a proven system to help you look as young as you feel. It is a signature treatment that brings together six scientifically advanced procedures to restore your skin’s natural beauty and radiance. This 6-step process works to erase spots and wrinkles, tighten skin, firm weak areas, and provide smooth, even tone and texture for a naturally youthful appearance.
The Titan procedure is effective on loose skin on the face, jawline, neck as well as other areas on the body. Titan utilizes a safe, infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. This heating can cause immediate collagen contraction. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan hand piece. After the procedure, new collagen growth results in further tightening and the development of a more youthful complexion with less lines, folds or looseness of the skin.
The best candidates for Titan are those who have mild to moderate sagging. The procedure can be safely done on the face, neck, and any part of the body. It’s a noninvasive no-downtime procedure that’s well-tolerated. Titan works best in patients with good skin tone and early skin laxity. That said it will work for many patients not completely fitting this description, depending on expectations. A good evaluation at the time of consultation is always needed to determine patient needs verses desires and offer an honest discussion as to what can be accomplished.
Laser skin tightening is a safe, effective way to lessen the effects of time. Using advanced laser technology, the collagen beneath the surface of the skin is heated, causing it to constrict, thus tightening loose facial skin and giving the appearance of firm, youthful skin with less fine lines and wrinkles. Patients generally notice immediate results following a laser skin tightening session, and further tightening is achieved over the next several months as new collagen grows. Depending on the areas being treated, most patients require more than one skin tightening treatment to achieve maximum results, but the effects are permanent. Unlike having a face lift, laser skin tightening requires no recovery and does not stretch the skin – it causes skin to tighten on its own. And, there is no downtime and little chance of side effects involved with skin tightening.

Laser skin tightening offers many of the same results as plastic surgery without the lengthy recovery time. While the procedure cannot remove excess skin, patients experience tightening of loose skin immediately, with less wrinkles in the treated area and a firmer, healthier-looking complexion. Laser skin tightening requires no recovery after treatment because it is a non-surgical procedure that involves no incisions.
Typical laser skin tightening results are visible for up to two years, and many patients find that they can extend their optimal results with a few touch-up treatments. After roughly two years, another series of treatments may be necessary to promote the growth of new collagen, which will be reabsorbed into the body over time. Laser skin tightening is a safe and painless way to rejuvenate the appearance of skin in any area of the body. Unlike other treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, which promote the growth of new skin by removing superficial layers of the patient’s skin the patient’s existing skin, laser skin tightening does not burn or break the skin. Patients who undergo skin tightening experience very few side effects and these are most often minor inconveniences in the form of redness or minimal and temporary swelling.
Laser skin tightening helps patients to look and feel younger by stimulating collagen regeneration under the surface of the skin. Wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, around and eyes and mouth, and on the neck and body, fade away as new collagen fills in the skin’s surface blemishes. There are no incisions or injections and, since the laser system cools the upper layers of skin while heating collagen down below, patients experience minimal discomfort.
There is no downtime necessary for laser skin tightening recovery; in fact, patients can return to work or play immediately following a laser skin tightening treatment session. The most common visible side effect of laser skin tightening is mild redness, and this can be safely hidden with a little make-up and should resolve itself within hours of treatment.
Tips from Allure Med Aesthetics, Inc own Rhoda Helring.
Hair: Much like our hair can make us look younger or older, thinner or heavier, it can also directly impact how our chin appears! Try to avoid blunt cuts that make your hair end exactly at the base of your chin – this will only draw attention to the area! Keep your hair at a flattering length for your face shape that is either above the chin or a bit below. Bangs can also draw the eye up and away from the chin area.
Contouring: Facial contouring with makeup, which has gained in popularity in recent years, is practically real-life Photoshop! Wearing makeup the right way can actually make us look younger, build facial structure where there was virtually none, and even create the illusion of strong, well-defined cheekbones. Contouring is also a great trick to implement to address that extra chin! By using chin-enhancing contouring techniques, you can trick the world into thinking your chin has more depth than it does. This gives the impression that the chin is thinner and further away than it actually is! I pull this off by using a slightly darker shade of bb cream (or maybe even a touch of bronzer) at the base of my chin. Make sure to blend well! The worst thing to do would be to create a look that makes you appear to have a dingy chin rather than a thinner one!
Clothing: If you are trying to draw attention away from your chin, don’t wear clothing that draws attention in that direction! This is common sense folks – you never want to emphasize what you’re trying to conceal. Likewise, you may want to stay away from high-neck options like turtlenecks. Consider the opposite like an awesome scoop, boat neck or V-neck, drawing attention to your delicate décolletage instead! Accessories can also help draw the eye elsewhere. A pretty pair of earrings can play double-duty as a chic ensemble addition and a distraction!
Avoid the Sun: This should be written in a neon sign at the top of this list. Sun exposure is the number one cause of wrinkles … more than heredity. Numerous studies have shown siblings have huge variances in the amount of wrinkles they acquire later in life, which can be directly correlated to differences in the amount of sun exposure they’ve had.
Don’t Smoke: Smoking breaks down collagen and elastin in your skin leaving it loose and prone to sagging and wrinkles.
Sleep on Your Back: The way you sleep does cause sleep lines which turn into wrinkles over time. It is best to sleep on your back. If that is impossible, then swap your cotton pillowcase for a satin one. Alternatively, you could replace your pillow with a beauty sleep pillow made with a special foam, with a unique shape that alleviates pressure on the face.
Give Yourself a Facial Massage: Facial massage is an ancient Japanese practice which involves simply pressing and stroking the face. This small addition to your regimen will help slough off dead skin, increase blood flow, reduce puffiness, remove toxins and help soften wrinkles. Tip: Use a light milky moisturizer, with your fingertips and palms always moving in a circular motion and directed upward with mild pressure and repeat daily.
Wear Sunscreen: Clearly, we can’t really strictly adhere to number 1 and live as hermits indoors. That would be depressing and who would get to see our young fresh faces in the best natural light? So, the next best thing is sunblock. Wear it daily and unsparingly.
Use a Moisturizer with Retinol at Night: You should moisturize daily to keep your skin hydrated, but if you’re trying to prevent wrinkles, Retinol will add that extra oomph. It will help slough off the dead skin and promote the production of collagen which will help keep those little lines at bay.

I’m Lois Trader a huge fan of Timeless Transition 360 and a woman who has been living with heart disease since 2003. I was a woman who, at age 47, had been told that she has coronary artery disease. A woman who on the outside inherited her mother’s genes (I look younger than I am), but on the inside had inherited her father’s genes (my arteries are 20 years older than I am). I’ve always wanted to defy everyone’s idea of what heart disease looks like. That is why I count on Allure Med Aesthetics, Inc and Rhoda to help me look as healthy as I always want to be!
