THE BEAUTILIFT DIFFERENCE Finding the Harmony Between Medicine and Art

My goal for your spa visit is simple: I want to you to be healthy and beautiful inside and out. As a doctor, my aim is to help you live longer and healthier, and I am grateful that I get to help people achieve this. I enjoy the creative aspect of my work and see it as a harmony between medicine and art. When we opened 16 years ago, there weren’t as many options for helping you reach your aesthetic goals, so it’s been wonderful to see the advances in technology. Now, there are so many ways to enhance your natural beauty! It’s incredible. That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about the skin-reviving procedure that uses advancements in thread lift technology. The Backstory on Thread Lifts Let’s go back about 15 years ago to when thread lifts first made their mark. At that time, they were made from permanent threads that had the same lifting effect as a traditional face-lift surgery. Not only was it nonsurgical, but it could be completed in about an hour, allowing patients to literally pop in on their lunch break and have the procedure done. As time went on, this type of thread lift lost popularity. The threads were permanent, which meant there were some unappealing side effects. It was proving to be an unsuccessful long-term solution. Fast-forward to modern days, and we find that the thread lift is making a comeback. But this time, it’s using completely resorbable materials, meaning your skin naturally reabsorbs the threads. The harmonious partnership between technology and your skin is yielding amazing results! The BeautifLift Difference What is this amazing technology? BeautiLift uses resorbable sutures known as PDO (polydioxanone) threads. Composed of biodegradable polymers, PDO threads have been used in cardiovascular surgery for decades. These resorbable threads do their job by stimulating the

skin’s subcutaneous layers and stimulating collagen production. They then disintegrate, leaving behind firmer, more youthful skin — and no threads! What makes the BeautiLift different than other thread lifts on the market? It all comes down to the threads. Most thread companies use eight to 12 different threads. However, Beautique has partnered with EuroThreads, which offers more thread varieties than any other company. This allows us to use this FDA-approved treatment at a more detailed level, and ensures the best results possible. If you’ve been fretting about how large your pores appear, this treatment also comes with added pore reduction. For pesky acne scars, tissue healing is also a perk. Other benefits include face contouring, neck lifting, and eyelid contouring. There are so many rejuvenating benefits that we don’t have room to list them all! And that’s why we’ve decided to offer it to you. We know you’ll be as excited about your youthful appearance as we are. Your first step toward rejuvenation is to talk with us about how we can help you get the results you want. Don’t wait for one more line to put a wrinkle in your day. Schedule a consultation with us today! Inside the newsletter we’re going to share with you another exciting treatment we’re offering. It’s called the HCG diet, and Beautique is one of the few places that offers the diet the way it was intended. Spoiler alert: You can lose up to a pound a day with HCG! With all these opportunities to rejuvenate your appearance, now is a great time for your next spa appointment. It’s just in time to bring your beautiful self to the holiday parties.

I wish you a happy start to the holiday season, and I look forward to helping you reach a healthy and harmonious life! –Dr. Sanchez OWNER, MEDICAL DIRECTOR | 956-664-1234



‘Tis the season for delicious, hearty food, and nothing quite hits the spot on a cool winter evening like hot soup. Everyone has their favorites, whether it’s a classic bowl of chicken noodle or a Tuscan white bean and garlic soup, so why not share the love at a soup swap? Similar to white elephant gift exchanges, guests arrive at a soup swap with a several helpings of their favorite soup and leave with something entirely new! Here’s how you can host your own. Step 1: Send out the invites. The more the merrier. Invite all your soup-loving friends. Instruct everyone to prepare at least 4 quarts of soup. If you invite six guests, make sure everyone brings their soup in six separate containers. Everyone should go home with the same amount of soup they brought. The soup that guests will give away should be frozen, but remind guests to also bring a separate warm serving of soup for tasting. Step 2: Prepare the tasting stations. Soup can get a bit messy, so lay down a simple table cloth on your table for easy cleanup later. Prepare a handful of blank labels — you can use chalkboard paint, scrapbook paper, or really anything fun — for guests to fill out and place

on their soup when they arrive. You’ll want to provide plenty of spoons and maybe some bread, crackers, or other snacks. Step 3: Get to swapping! As guests arrive, give them the opportunity to socialize. This is a fun event, so while everyone is sampling the soup, play some music, offer drinks, and let them chat it up. After an hour or so, it’s time to get down to business. recommends having guests draw numbers for tasting order. Try each creation one at a time until you’re out of soup! You don’t have to follow this structure, of course. Find a method that works best for you and your guests. Bonus: Use Mason jars. Readily available in bulk at most grocery stores, Mason jars are leakproof and easier to transport than plastic storage containers. Plus, they’re inexpensive and fairly easy to replace. No one likes hounding their friends for precious glass containers weeks after a party. Soup swaps are guaranteed fun all year long. Looking for more advice to help throw the perfect soup swap?

You are feeling great. You walk a little taller and put more sass in your step. You’re loving how you look! It took hard work, persistence, and self-control. That’s what dieting is all about. Then something happens after you reach your goal weight. Your motivation slips. Not only does the weight creep back, but it brings a truckload of friends! What happened? It’s actually very simple. Traditional dieting caused you to lose both fat and muscle, and while that looks good on the scales, losing muscle causes your metabolism to slow way down. That’s why you gain back the weight you lost, and then some. Even worse, it takes a long time to rebuild the muscle you dieted away. It’s discouraging. But now, thanks to the groundbreaking work of board-certified physician Sheri L. Emma, MD, traditional dieting just got a total makeover. Dr. Emma performed years of clinical studies on the use of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) injections, a pro-hormone in the body. When paired with a healthy diet and exercise, the results were astonishing!

You may recall that HCG injections were once considered a somewhat controversial way to lose weight. Not anymore! Dr. Emma’s study showed that while people lose about the same amount of weight with traditional dieting as they do on the updated HCG diet, there’s one incredible difference: Her HCG patients keep the weight off! You don’t lose weight faster with the HCG True Diet — you lose it differently. You keep muscle while becoming leaner. At the same time, you build a stronger metabolism, which helps you maintain your weight loss. And yes, there are other HCG diets on the market that advocate the use of HCG drops, pills, and sprays. Beware! Only HCG injections have been clinically proven to boost dramatic weight reduction. How dramatic? With HCG, you can lose up to a pound a day! Our clients lose more weight and keep it off thanks to the proprietary program Dr. Sanchez has created. Ready to learn more? Come in and consult with us today. Get the weight off and keep it off. We can show you how!

Carve Your Turkey at The Greenbrier

This Thanksgiving, many Americans plan to go over the river and through the woods to sleep on the air mattress at grandmother’s house. But your family Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be crowded and uncomfortable. For generations, The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, has brought families together for a weekend of true American elegance. The local hot springs have been popular with travelers since 1778, but The Greenbrier didn’t come to life until 1913. The sprawling 710-room national landmark sits on 11,000 acres of rolling hills and has been described as “‘Monte Carlo’ meets ‘Gone With the Wind.’” The blend of Colonial decor and Hollywood Regency flourishes make guests feel as if they have stepped back in time, while still offering all the modern amenities. Mom and Grandma relax in the spa, Grandpa enjoys a round of golf, the siblings all go off-roading in a Jeep, and later, the whole family faces off in a game of laser tag. With 55 leisure activities offered at the resort, make every day as busy or as relaxing as you want before enjoying a gourmet dinner at one of the resort’s six full- time restaurants. The Greenbrier is a dream getaway anytime of the year, but America’s resort really goes all-out for the traditional American holiday, Thanksgiving. Family members from every generation can find something fun to do before everyone gathers for the massive Thanksgiving brunch in The Greenbrier’s Colonial Hall. The award- winning culinary brigade serves up Thanksgiving classics, like soft rolls

and roasted turkey, alongside marinated mussels and ricotta tortellini. Make time for the horse-drawn carriage ride and evening gala, and you have the perfect Thanksgiving. | 956-664-1234
