At this year's The Aesthetic Show, which was held at the Aria Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Dr. Janee Steinberg was awarded the 2012 National Award for the Best Non Surgical Body Enhancement for her arm lifting and skin tightening results. The awards were presented by Dr. Andrew Ordon of CBS Television's The Doctors.
Non-Surgical Arm Lift performed with Thermage and Fraxel
Dr. Steinberg utilized two different devices to achieve these results, Body Thermage which is a non-surgical skin-tightening device which uses RF energy to encourage the body to produce its own natural collagen and the Fraxel laser which performs fractional resurfacing improving skin texture and appearance. Unlike surgical procedures, Body Thermage may offer a significant modicum of skin tightening without any downtime, scarring, and minimal swelling and bruising.
According to Dr. Steinberg, the decision to use non-surgical combination of Thermage & Fraxel on the upper arms on this patient was because she had performed one Thermage treatment with vectors followed by 4 fairly aggressive Fraxel treatments to the patient's full face. She loved her results so much that when they discussed how to proceed to tighten and change the loose skin and the sun damage on her arms, they decided to use this combination there and on the thighs as well.
Dr. Steinberg added "I believe that many patients, especially women, would benefit greatly from this combination of procedures. However, two factors are in effect here....one is pain tolerance, and the other is price tolerance!"

Dr. Steinberg most recently was awarded the Southern Regional Award for the Best Non Surgical Body Enhancement in 2011 with THE Aesthetic Academy, in Miami, Florida where she had utilized Thermage to improve a patient's lax skin on her thighs.
