A new, more convenient way to get slimmer with Zerona®!

Great news, recent studies show that after only four  60 minute ZERONA® sessions our patients are losing 3 1/2 to 5 inches.  So as a holiday gift to you we have  a special offer on Gilt City for Zerona® treatments. Is Zerona® right for you?  Here are some helpful  FAQs to help you make an educated decision.


How Does Zerona® Laser Work?

Zerona® uses low level (cold) laser technology that can easily target problem areas from outside the body. These lasers disrupt the stubborn fat cells that store excess fat in the body, forcing the fat to be released and naturally expelled by the body.

When was Zerona introduced?

Zerona® aesthetic laser treatments, FDA approved,  were introduced in 2009 after over 10 years of extensive research.  For nearly 5 years my patients have been losing inches painlessly.

Who is the Best Candidate for Zerona® Laser Treatments?

The best candidates for these body slimming treatments are those who lead a healthy lifestyle but need help getting rid of stubborn fat that’s often  very difficult to get rid of, even with good nutrition and regular exercise.  They are healthy individuals who are ready to commit to good habits .

Is Zerona® Laser Safe for Everyone?

Zerona® is FDA and Health Canada approved for safety and effectiveness. Zerona® laser is a  non-invasive treatment for aesthetic use. Zerona® treatments are not recommended  for pregnant women or patients who have a pacemaker. There are no known side effects with Zerona®.

How Many Treatments are Required?

After as little as 4 treatments you will see the inches disappear and with additional treatments you can continue to lose even more. A different treatment package is recommended if the Body Mass Index is over 30. Proper consultation with the doctor and certified technicians will give you a better idea of how many treatments would work best.

How Long until Results are Noticeable?

The majority of Zerona® users will have noticeable results within one week of their first treatment.

Is the Fat Loss Permanent?

Yes, the fat loss in targeted areas is permanent when weight is maintained. Everyone is reminded of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise. It’s always important to have balanced nutrition and regular exercise to maintain treatment benefits.

Should Anything be Avoided Between Treatments?

It is recommended to avoid caffeine and alcohol during the treatment program. This is because they are dehydrating and the body must stay well hydrated before and after each procedure.  

Are Zerona® Laser Treatments Covered by Insurance?

Zerona® treatments are generally not covered by insurance.

National Healthy Skin Month-November 2014

Neglect your skin, skip water in favor of lattes, or opt for bar soap versus gentle cleansers, and your elbows will rat you out. Cosmetic surgeon, skin care expert and author of Change Your Looks, Change Your Life and The Beautiful Skin Workout Dr. Michelle Copeland can assess your skin’s health by running her fingers over the small patch of skin in this telltale spot. And according to Dr. Copeland, so can you. ”Elbows are a litmus test indicating how well you take care of your body,” she said. ”Regular exercise, eating healthy foods and reducing such things as alcohol intake and caffeine consumption, all affect the quality of your skin. You are what you eat, as the saying goes, and skin is an outward reflection of the internal situation. Incorporating a healthy lifestyle into the day-to-day maintenance of your skin is a must!”

This month, we recognize November as National Healthy Skin Care Month, making it the perfect time to evaluate your skin care habits and gear up for beautiful holiday skin. Your skin is the clothing that nature gave you. If you’ve abused it (as most of us have, to some degree) then cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and sun protection are good ways to undo the damage. Daily use of a product with anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C, E, or green tea, is crucial. These anti-oxidants help to keep the skin clear, healthy, and nourished.

For great-looking skin, begin with the basics-treat your body’s skin as well as you do your face. The Dr. Michelle Copeland Skin Care Basic Regimen provides you with everything the average person needs to keep skin healthy and looking great. If you don’t currently practice a daily skin-care regimen, this is a great place to start. The Dr. Michelle Copeland Skin Care Advanced Regimen begins with the Basic Regimen and then kicks it into high gear. Not only do you get the basics, you receive additional products designed to soothe, revitalize, and rejuvenate your skin. If you’re already on a skin-care program and ready to go for the next step, the Advanced Regimen is for you.

Be in the know this November about the care and needs of your skin. Your skin is the way the world sees you.

Renee Zellweger’s before and after controversy

Celebrities face scrutiny from the public with every move they make, and Renee Zellweger’s recent photographs are no exception. Renee Zellweger had a natural, girl next door quality when she first became famous, and her latest look is a big departure that is unsettling to her fans. Even though she might be happy with her new look, Renee Zellweger fans have an image of her from movies like Jerry Maguire or Bridget Jones, and it doesn’t match up with her current look. Time will tell if the public will get used to her new look.


In my opinion, she looks like she has had an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and possibly a forehead lift.  Unfortunately, instead of freshening her up, this surgery  removed that softness around her eyes.  She may also have had some tightening of her face and lifting of her cheeks, possibly with a temporary filler or fat grafting. It is possible to reduce the extra skin of the upper eyelids that worsens with age ( and can even sometimes interfere with good vision) without losing the soft contour.

The best outcome, in my opinion, doesn’t radically change your appearance.  When I talk with patients, I emphasize that cosmetic procedures should result in making you look like yourself, only better.  You want your friends to say you look well rested, not who are you. today.

Don’t let sweat get in the way

Are you embarrassed by wet armpits, clammy hands and feet?  Well, you are not alone.  Hyperhidrosis,  a condition where you produce much more perspiration than you  need to keep your body cool, affects more than a million people in the US alone. We all sweat – but when heavy sweating causes embarrassment and changes the way you live your life, it may be time for action. Fortunately, this is a situation we can now treat effectively with BOTOX®.

My patients often suffer from difficulty in social situations and tell me that excessive sweating significantly interferes with their daily activities. A treatment made famous for fighting wrinkles can also provide relief for this uncomfortable condition – BOTOX®.  BOTOX® injections block the chemical signals sent from the nerves that control sweating, an essentially safe solution for excessive perspiration. The substance relaxes muscles associated with the sweat glands – a positive effect on a patient’s quality of life.

Back to school skin doesn’t have to wear you thin

Almost as if the summer passed by with the blink of an eye, back to school time has returned in full swing! The perfect time for new wardrobes and clean attendance slates, it is also the time for pimples and acne to develop, just as stress levels and workloads will.

A pimple starts when the pores in the skin become clogged with a type of oil called sebum, which normally lubricates the skin and hair. Acne is common during puberty when hormones go into overdrive, causing the skin to overproduce sebum.

If you are suffering from acne, you’re not alone! Eighty percent of people experience at least one bout of this highly visible condition between the ages of 12 and 24. Of course, it isn’t only limited to the teens. Acne is not uncommon in later years, due to hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy, use or discontinuation of birth control pills, and menopause.

The good news is that normal acne is very treatable with the right skin-care regimen, and that is where we come in. Dr. Michelle Copeland, renowned New York plastic surgeon, recommends these products for the treatment of acne.

Start with a basic regimen of cleansing and toning twice daily, followed by Advanced Acne Solution - once or twice a day. The first step to healthy skin begins here. For flare ups and acne spots, treat affected areas with:

Advanced Acne Solution - Remove excess oils and help control breakouts! – Perfect for teens and adults

  • Contains powerful azelaic acid, salicyclic acid and BSF (balanced sebum formula) for resistant acne

Blemish Corrector & Intensive Acne Spot Treatment - Formulated to dry and clear acne & blemishes reduce the appearance of  discoloration in both teens and adults.

  • Salix Alba (Willow Bark) Extract and Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract to promote clear, glowing skin,
  • Morus Alba Root Extract (Mulberry) and Licorice Root to help brighten and even skin tone and
  • PVP to help form a film to help seal the area, creating a smooth, even finish

Honey Almond Scrub - A weekly skin exfoliator with soothing honey promotes cell rejuvenation - leaves the skin feeling healthy and purified.

Clay Mask - Gently cleans pores and improves skin radiance with powerful antioxidants including lipoic acid, vitamin C and zinc for cell renewal without irritation.

Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Formula - A powerful brightening formula  with kogic acid, thyme and arbutin helps reduce the appearance of brown spots, sun spots, scars, under eye circles, and other discolorations without the use of irritating hydroquinone.

Great feedback from a patient

Dr. Copeland did my rhinoplasty, chin inplant, and neck lipo for 15k in 2008. She did a really good job. In fact she did such an amazing job that no one believes me when i tell them what i had done to my face. My new nose is symmetric (which is what i asked of her) and it looks natural. This women is experienced and definetly has “gifted hands”. Great job, pricey but worth it.
