SkinViva Reveal New Results of Sophisticated Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

Manchester (PRWEB UK) 28 May 2015

Innovative cosmetic treatment company SkinViva has unveiled dramatic new ‘before and after’ pictures of their non-surgical rhinoplasty. The images show just how sophisticated and surprisingly effective the procedure has become.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty is also known as the ‘liquid nose job’ as it uses injectable dermal fillers to reshape the nose, gently blending away bumps, humps and asymmetry by the careful positioning of dermal filler injections.

This makes it a much faster and safer option compared to surgery, which can take up to a year to heal fully and is a serious operation requiring general anaesthetic. Yet despite there being much less downtime from the procedure, lower risk and a faster recovery, the results show dramatic improvement.

SkinViva’s latest before and after photos show how effective non-surgical nose reshaping can be at rebalancing the facial features and creating better harmony. Using long-lasting dermal fillers, a prominent nose with a large bump was adjusted in order to smooth out the humped area for a smoother and straighter contour. The doctor also worked to balance the facial features by improving the whole side profile for a more harmonious silhouette. Following the procedure, the nose which formerly looked too large for the face now fits in a very balanced and more attractive way.

Dr Tim Pearce MB ChB BSc (Hons) MRCGP, Skinviva’s Clinical Director, explains more:

“It looks smaller because I enlarged the chin, and placed a small amount of dermal filler above and below the bump on the nose, and a small amount in the top lip. It is almost unbelievable if you weren’t there!”

“The surgical nose job can transform somebody’s profile, adjusting the balance and harmony of their facial features quite dramatically. However, the non-surgical alternative can achieve surprising results in a fraction of the time and cost with much lower risks and faster recovery. A surgical nose job for this patient would probably have involved breaking the nose, meaning months of uncomfortable recovery. Yet we achieved an excellent aesthetic result in just one session.”

“We would urge anybody contemplating nose job surgery for cosmetic reasons to consider the non-surgical rhinoplasty first; as it is a much safer and less invasive procedure.”

All of SkinViva’s Aesthetic Doctors are now trained in performing the non-surgical rhinoplasty, a treatment which demands high levels of aesthetic appreciation as well as injecting skill and expertise.

As the procedure uses temporary dermal fillers, results won’t last forever. However, with the latest long-lasting filler, results can be expected to last for 2 or more years. When the dermal fillers inevitably do ‘wear off’, the procedure can be repeated and indeed adjusted to suit the individual’s needs, as facial balance does alter with the natural ageing process.

The cost of the treatment is £595 and treatment is available in SkinViva’s network of skin treatment clinic locations across Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and the North West as well as their own flagship clinic in the Castlefield area of Manchester.

All professional skin treatments are carried out by qualified UK-registered doctors. The team is led by fully qualified doctor and Clinical Director, Dr Tim Pearce MB ChB BSc (Hons) MRCGP, who also established a skin treatments training school, SkinViva Training, in 2013, in order to teach best practice skills and techniques to other medical professionals wishing to develop high standards of cosmetic injection skills and knowledge.

ICTV Brands Inc. Reports First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Wayne, PA (PRWEB) May 07, 2015

ICTV Brands, Inc. (OTCQX: ICTV), (CSE: ITV), a direct response marketing and branding company focused on the health, wellness and beauty sector, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

First Quarter 2015 Highlights:

Launched media campaigns for five new products, resulting in incremental revenue of $ 232,000.
Sellout on The Shopping Channel Canada as DermaWand returns to live televised home shopping for the first time in 2 years.
$ 1.8 million in International third party distributor sales, an increase of $ 846,000 year over year.
Adjusted EBIDTA loss of $ 94,000, including up front expenditures for five new campaign launches.
Current working capital of $ 1.9 million.

Richard Ransom, President, stated, “I am happy with the progress we have continued to make throughout the first quarter in developing five new brands, while continuing to open new channels of distribution for our flagship product, DermaWand. Each day hundreds of new customers enter the ICTV Brands family and it is very exciting for our team to have a vast portfolio of products to offer them. As the year progresses, I am confident the investment made in these brands will yield a great return to our shareholders.”

Financial Results:

During the first quarter of 2015, we allocated considerable resources to our portfolio of brands still in a rollout phase, and as a result, we made a strategic decision to reduce the amount of airings of our DermaWand infomercial. Media expenditures were approximately $ 3.2 million and $ 3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Accordingly, our net sales decreased to approximately $ 8.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, from approximately $ 9.8 million recorded during the three months ended March 31, 2014. Further, due to the reduced media spend, sales related to the DermaVital skin care line during the three months ended March 31, 2015 were approximately $ 822,000 compared to $ 1.2 million during the three months ended March 31, 2014.

The Company resumed airings on live televised home shopping in the first quarter of 2015 which resulted in an increase of $ 49,000 to the revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2015, compared to no live televised home shopping sales in the prior year. The Company expects to continue airings on live televised home shopping throughout the remainder of 2015. Additionally, international third party distributor sales were approximately $ 1.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2015, as compared to approximately $ 956,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Gross profit percentage was approximately 70% for the three months ended March 31, 2015, compared to approximately 74% during the three months in 2014. For the three months ended March 31, 2015 we generated approximately $ 6.2 million in gross profit, compared to approximately $ 7.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The decrease in gross profit percentage is a result of a higher percentage of international sales compared to DRTV sales, due to international sales having a lower gross profit.

Total operating expenses decreased to approximately $ 6.5 million from approximately $ 7.7 million as a result of the decrease in media spend and volume. Despite the volume related decreases, the Company had a number of significant one time expenditures in Q1, specifically approximately $ 84,000 in print media costs related to the Company’s retail strategy for DermaWand as well as approximately $ 50,000 in radio media expenses for CoralActives. Furthermore, the Company had a number of expenditures for products in the early stages of their life cycle as the Company tested new creative and media outlets. For products with continuity programs, a significant portion of its profits are during the second continuity sale after the initial customer acquisition. The Company’s new products, including CoralActives, Derma Brilliance, elastin-rp, Juvion, and Good Planet Super Solution, contributed net revenue of approximately $ 223,000, gross profit of approximately $ 145,000 and total operating expenses of approximately $ 415,000.

The Company generated a net loss of approximately $ 270,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015, compared with a net loss of approximately $ 515,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Net loss per share was approximately ($ 0.01) compared to net loss per share of approximately ($ 0.02). Included in the net loss is non-cash share based compensation of approximately $ 162,000 and the investment mentioned above in our new products. Adjusted EBITDA loss was approximately $ 94,000 compared to adjusted EBITDA loss of approximately $ 304,000 in the prior year quarter.

Balance Sheet as of March 31, 2015

As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company had $ 1.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $ 1.9 million, which demonstrates our strong liquidity and continued investment in the growth of ICTV. Additionally, the Company had no debt obligations at both March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014.

Dr. Kevin Sadati Announces That His Two Year Survey Shows Increased Patient Demand in Natural-Looking Facial Plastic Surgery Results

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 16, 2014

There have always been people who have opted to have cosmetic surgery in order to improve their appearance, look younger and boost their self-confidence. Previously, many people wanted to transform their look, but now there is a new trend. Dr. Kevin Sadati announces that natural-looking facial plastic surgery procedures have become the most desired options for cosmetic surgery patients today.

“Natural-looking plastic surgery allows patients to improve their appearance but simply look like refreshed, younger versions of themselves. With natural-looking cosmetic surgery results patients do not look like they had surgical procedures or like someone else afterwards,” explains Dr. Kevin Sadati, top facial plastic surgeon in Orange County.

What Natural-Looking Cosmetic Surgery Procedures are The Most Popular This Season?

Natural Looking Facelift – Dr. Kevin Sadati’s natural looking facelift, often referred to as the Natural Lift, utilizes his self-developed facial muscle tightening technique known as a Double C-Plication. Using this technique Dr. Kevin Sadati performs his natural looking facelifts in-office, under local anesthesia and twilight sedation. This superior facelift is the ideal choice for patients who want to avoid general anesthesia. Facelift patients can now look younger with long lasting, natural-looking results.

Neck Lift – A neck lift is an ideal procedure for patients who are just beginning to show the first signs of aging and are not ready for a full lower face and neck lift. This cosmetic surgery procedure eliminates excess skin and the neck area providing patients with a natural, youthful post plastic surgery result. Dr. Kevin Sadati performs his neck lifts in-office, under local anesthesia and twilight sedation. Neck lift recovery time is both easier and shorter since the patient doesn’t have to under go general anesthesia.

Blepharoplasty– Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, is a very popular procedure for Dr. Kevin Sadati’s patients. Easily performed in-office, under local anesthesia and oral sedation. Blepharoplasty results allow patients to look refreshed and like younger version of them. A patient’s tired eyes now look full of life again and under eye bags are removed. Many patients of Dr. Kevin Sadati’s choose to add this minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedure on to their facelift.

“I have devoted my practice to natural-looking, minimally invasive in-office cosmetic surgery procedures for my patients and in today’s day and age this is what people are looking for. An in-office survey that I performed showed that patients want non-surgical looking results in their plastic surgery. Patients want to look younger, get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and return that youthful glow they once had,” explain Dr. Kevin Sadati, Newport Beach facial plastic surgeon.

Anyone who is interested in learning more about Dr. Kevin Sadati’s natural looking facial plastic surgery results and how they can be performed in-office, under local anesthesia and oral sedation, should contact his office today for an individualized plan.
