We recently held a beauty and book event with my friends at The Bitar Cosmetic Institute in Fairfax, VA and it was absolutely fabulous. My book Pulling It All Together continues to bring such positive experiences and new people into my life. Dr. George Bitar and his partner Dr. Larry Lickstein opened the doors to their beautiful aesthetics center for an afternoon spent learning about the latest cosmetic procedures that are essential to getting your best summer body, just in time for your swimsuit reveal.
Coolsculpting is a technology that safely and effectively freezes fat to improve the contour of unsightly bulges of the body that are resistant to exercise and diet. We did a procedure demo for the guests and they absolutely loved it. I haven’t had coolsculpting myself, but I am extremely impressed with the results that I’ve seen on other Bitar Institute patients.
Another procedure that patients were able to learn about is Ultherapy. Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment for the face, neck, and chest that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten loose skin without any downtime.
Ultherapy works over time to strengthen the existing collagen layer deep under the skin and starts a process that produces new collagen. I recently underwent Ultherapy treatment and I have to say, it wasn’t the least bit unpleasant. Z, my aesthetician at Bitar Institute, made sure I was comfortable and relaxed throughout the session. The results will be able to be seen over several months so I’ll be sure to keep you posted with before and after pics.
The group enjoyed champagne and hors d’oeuvres from Hungry Marketplace Catering and then it was time for the book signing to begin.
Meeting the women that came out was the highlight of my week, each one with a specific goal in mind for herself. Some wanted info on how to achieve her best look, others were more interested in just being happy, but all seemed to respond to the kindness and countless self-care and improvement ideas that were shared throughout the day.
Thank you Rima Bitar, Katie and the entire Bitar Cosmetic Institute staff for putting together such a thoughtful and informative event. It was my honor to be there with my book, Pulling It All Together.
