Most people have heard of Ozone, but only in how it relates to the Earth’s atmosphere in which it absorbs the ultraviolet light, is considered a pollutant, and is thin with holes in it. Ozone has actually been used therapeutically for 150 years. It is a gas, which is colorless, and is a form of oxygen. Ozone Therapy is widely used in other countries including Germany, Russia, and Cuba. There are professional medical Ozonotherapy societies in over ten countries worldwide. Ozone has been studied globally for its ability to disinfect and treat disease by inactivating bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa, stimulation of oxygen metabolism, and activation of the immune system. Also referred to as Ozonotherapy, it is used in alternative medicine. There are claims that it will increase the amount of oxygen in the body through the introduction of ozone. Diseases treated are infected wounds, circulatory disorders, geriatric conditions, macular degeneration, viral diseases, rheumatism/arthritis, cancer, SARS, and AIDS. Ozone therapy leaves bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa essentially inactive. While its natural form is a gas, it should not be inhaled as it irritates the airways. It is administered directly to the tissue in a protective covering, intravenously, or […]
Give Me a Head with Hair…
Long beautiful hair, Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen” (from the 1967 Musical Hair). Having a full head of wonderful, luxurious, beautiful hair is one of the first things a person notices when they see you. Hair has always had psychological and sociological importance throughout the ages. For many, it is their crowning glory. The thought of thinning hair has brought about some wild and crazy hair growth remedies throughout the ages. Ancient Egyptians went so far as to include a mixture of fats from a hippopotamus, crocodile, tomcat, snake and ibex or porcupine hair boiled in water and applied to the scalp for four days. In 1936, the introduction of the Xervac, a machine that purportedly used suction to spur hair growth. In 19th-century England, people affected with thinning hair would rub “cold India tea” and pieces of lemon into their scalps. Let’s be honest, hair loss effects self-image and self-confidence for both men and women. Once you have hair, you do not want to say farewell to it. The newest technique in hair growth rejuvenation are the use of Exosomes. These are micro-vesicles, about 1/1000th the size of a normal cell and are involved in normal intercellular communication. Also […]

A breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty, is often covered by health insurance. It can be a cosmetic procedure if someone simply would like smaller breasts. However, because there is typically pain, a breast reduction can be considered a medially necessary surgery. Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that removes excess fat, tissue, and skin to create a breast size more proportionate with a women’s body size. A breast reduction is sought after by women who have disproportionally large breasts. This may cause them physical pain and emotional distress. “Many of my patients have been helped by breast reduction. For years, these women have struggled with neck and back pain, indentations on their shoulders from bras, and skin irritations. Additionally, large breasts can cause women to feel self conscious, limit their physical activity, and make choosing clothing difficult. By reducing the size of their breasts, we can relieve pain and lift spirits,” said Dr. Said A Samra, founder of Samra Plastic Surgery. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a breast reduction is about $5500 plus anesthesia and surgical facility costs. These costs my be covered by health insurance providers. The individual will need to get […]
Do you love to be in shape, look fit, and have a body to be proud of?
Then you have missed your routine of going to the gym and so does your body. While much of the world is slowly reopening after being under quarantine for months, you still have this tremendous hesitation about going to your gym, sharing equipment, and maybe sharing air with too many. There is a great alternative that will put you back into pre-lockdown shape, ready for the beach, and keep you there without exposure to potential illness. Come into Lotus Health & Aesthetics for our Medical Fitness Center treatments or Medical Gym. Undo the quarantine damage with EMSCULPT, a non-invasive technology that induces powerful muscle contractions also known as HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetics). These contractions cannot be achieved with voluntary muscle action. Emsculpt causes 20,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes! This also causes the fat cells to break down their contents and release them as fatty acids which are metabolized by the body and excreted as waste. It has been cleared by the FDA for the improvement of abdominal tone and strength as well as buttocks. Recently, the same technology has begun to bring back your beautifully toned arms and legs. A handful of visits has the same effect on your […]
Telemedicine, the new normal or just for now?
Many medical professionals are offering telemedicine services during this Coronavirus pandemic. Patients can be treated from the comfort, convenience, and safety of their own homes via a phone, tablet, or computer. This patient visit can be conducted as simply as a telephone call or as sophisticated as a video call. The platforms are HIPAA complaint to protect patients. Telemed services can include initial consultations, follow-up appointments, sick visits, or potentially any type of communication for which you would normally seek the advice and guidance of a physician. These appointments are being referred to as virtual visits, video appointments, and phone consultations. If the patient requires treatment, the physician can discuss a plan based on the diagnosis and emergent nature. During this critical time, when the CDC is recommending people try to ‘flatten the curve’ by not gathering in places and standing 6 feet apart from one another, physicians had to find an alternative way to communicate to replace the traditional in-person visit. This was further complicated by not limiting the amount of patients a doctor can see in a day based on having to stagger patient visits. This service that has been around for decades and is commonly used in […]
THE ULTIMATE THANK YOU By Lotus Health Aesthetics
Apparently, it is part of human nature to develop appreciation for things we always took for granted as well as new and different people, places, and things after going through a traumatic experience. For many of us, living the last few months with the fear of illness, death, financial ruin, loss of a loved one, and so many other emotions that have plagued us with this plague, has opened our eyes to the importance certain people have played in your life. No one came out of this unchanged. Saying thank you cannot communicate the deep sentiment many of us have. The words are used so often, that no matter how deeply we feel them, we want to express more. For the Moms and Dads out there, I bet you never had such great appreciation for your children’s teachers after home schooling them since Mid-March. Their infinite patience and careful mentoring of your child’s future has not gone unnoticed after the world became The Land of Covid. If you or a loved one sought medical treatment recently and realized that all your loved one had was the hospital staff to rely on, since no visitors were allowed, your gratitude runs far […]
Renewing Life After Quarantine
Life is pretty rough right now, you have the threat of physical illness, financial worries, shortages of necessities, children home 24/7 driving you nuts, weak and elderly loved ones you can’t get to and a sense of isolation. When will this all go away? It is so important, now more than ever, to let our loved ones know you love and support them and that they are on our minds. Social isolation is depressing and living in quarantine puts walls between us and the ones we want to hold dear. Spring is here, it should be all about renewal after a long, colorless winter. What can we do to renew the spirit? You can’t visit because of Social Distancing, you can’t travel. We are quarantined, so our favorite pampering places are closed. Your hair looks like the ends were chewed, your nails look like you have been digging in cement, your uni-brow has taken over, you are pale, pasty, puffy. All that sinful stress eating has found a home, just where you didn’t want it. The stress and strain you have been living under is written permanently on your face with deep worry lines. You dream about a relaxing massage […]
Confused about Body Contouring Choices?
You keep seeing and hearing the words Body Sculpting but what exactly does that mean? Essentially it is a category of noninvasive cosmetic treatments or fat-reduction procedures which can be done in-office with minimal downtime. The results are wonderful and beauty seekers overwhelming prefer this over surgical solutions. It is terrific to have a plethora of choices, although not all treatments are made equal and not all procedures are right for every issue and person. It is best to educate yourself for which one is best for your body, health, and wallet. Body contouring is not a replacement for healthy eating and smart weight loss. Losing weight reduces the size of your fat cells, it does not remove them. That being said, these procedures are a wonder at removing unwanted trouble spots that weight loss and exercise haven’t fixed. We all have those hated spots…muffin tops, turkey neck, jelly belly. The best candidates would be: Adults whose weight loss has stabilized Healthy individuals without medical conditions Nonsmokers Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals Individuals that are committed to leading a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and fitness CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure. It is a […]
Why are so many women getting boob jobs?
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, 313,735 breast augmentations were performed nationally in 2018. Breast augmentation has been the top cosmetic surgical procedure since 2006 and was up 4% versus 2017. Silicone implants were used in 88%, and saline implants in 12%, of all breast augmentations in 2018. Liposuction followed (258,558) and rhinoplasty was the 3rd (213,780) most popular cosmetic surgery in 2018. Why are so many women getting boob jobs? The reasons are very personal and based on the individual’s body, history, and image. In general, the most popular goals are to increase the size, change the shape, or improve symmetry of the breasts. Dr. Said Samra, board-certified plastic surgeon at Samra Plastic Surgery who has consulted with thousands of women on the subject, says, “Before pregnancy, women interested in the procedure are typically looking to increase size or address asymmetry. Post pregnancy, women are usually looking to restore shape and replace volume loss. Breast implants can also be used to form a more hourglass figure by creating balance between the breasts and hips. One thing these women all have in common is they want to feel more confident about the way they look in and […]
Could EMSCULPT be your dream come true?
So, you love a toned body but hate the gym? You are probably in the majority. Several years ago, while sweating on a treadmill at my least favorite place, I overheard two ladies planning out the perfect scenario for a beautiful body. One suggested that somebody needs to find a way to lay back and relax and let a machine do all the hard work for you. BINGO…or rather EMSCUPLT EMSCULPT is the first non-surgical, non-invasive treatment of its kind to both simultaneously build muscle, burn fat, and shape your body. To address fat and skin, it uses high intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to stimulate muscle contractions. Muscle contractions, like crunches and squats, helps build muscle mass and tone. During the EMSCULPT procedure, muscles are forced to have supramaximal muscle contractions. These intense contractions are not achievable through voluntary contractions you can do on your own. The technology induces 20,000 supramaximal muscle contractions in 30 minutes. In comparison, when you do a crunch or a squat, you are only activating about 50% of that muscle group every three to five seconds. EMSCULPT is activating 100% of the muscle 20,000 times in a 30-minute period. The muscle tissue is forced […]
What To Expect at a Plastic Surgery Consult
You’ve researched your procedure. You’ve spoken with friends. You’ve identified a board-certified plastic surgeon and scheduled your consultation. What happens next? A plastic surgery consultation is equal parts learning and job interview. The actual consultation may last about an hour. While there, you’ll want to evaluate the surgeon, staff, office and patient outcomes. When you arrive, check in at the front desk and fill out paperwork if you weren’t advised to do so ahead of time. Some practices will mail you the forms or ask you to download them from the website. Filling out the forms before your appointment is a great option that will allow you to relax and simply focus on gathering the information you need. You’ll be brought into an exam room where you’ll meet a medical assistant or nurse. She or he will ask you questions about your medical history, the current medications and supplements you may be taking, and why you chose to consult. If your area of concern is your breasts or body, you’ll be asked to change into a gown so the doctor can examine you. Once the doctor comes in, he or she will need to know what you want to change […]
Smart Lipo for body contouring, and fat reduction
Dr. Fretta offers a number of treatments for weight loss, and body contouring. His Smart Lipo procedures offer effective results with minimal down time for body sculpting, skin tightening of the body or face, and fat reduction. What is Smart Lipo SmartLIPO is a type of laser liposuction whereby a laser fiber is used to help melt away fat, making it easier to suction the fat away and providing smoother looking skin. The gentle heat of the laser offers the added benefit of tightened skin. SmartLIPO can be used on any area of the body including very small areas such as knees, ankles, armpit fat and under the chin. Does SmartLipo help with weight loss? SmartLipo is not a procedure for weight loss. Instead, it is meant for spot reduction and contouring. Does the procedure hurt? The process is painless, since patients are given anesthesia before the surgery. Some patients report very mild aches after the procedure; these may feel similar to post-workout soreness. What Results can be Expected SmartLIPO laser liposuction destroys and removes fat cells, leaving you with fewer fat cells in the treated areas. Those fat cells will be prone to becoming filled with more fat if […]
Safe Plasma Injections in Monmouth County, NJ Dr Joseph Fretta MD
If you think your face could benefit from a natural, refreshed look, you owe it to yourself to check out the option of plasma injections. Monmouth County, NJ and Eatontown, NJ have multiple doctors who offer a variety of services to soften wrinkles, reduce the appearance of lines, and brighten your face, but Dr. Fretta’s Total Vein Care believes plasma injections (or PRP) are one of the best choices for clients looking for a treatment with multiple benefits.

Is Botox Right For You?
With age, and after years of expressions, the skin can begin to show creases and fine lines. As we age the face also tends to lose fat, which gives the skin the necessary volume it needs. This vital facial volume loss can be corrected with the use of dermal fillers such as Botox. Benefits of Botox Many people know that Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all used to neutralize wrinkles. They also know that Monmouth County offers a plethora of wonderful physicians and Medi-spas to get the best possible outcome when they opt to do one of these procedures. The above-mentioned products are all a purified form of Botulinum Toxin A, from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles. Botox is made from donated human plasma which is tested and treated to reduce the risk of contamination. Of course, speak to your doctor about any possible risk you may have, but don’t forget to ask about the amazing benefits cosmetically as well as medically. Botox is most effective on “dynamic” wrinkles, that haven’t quite set. If you restrict the movement of the muscle, you won’t form the wrinkle. Some […]
Do Acne Scar Treatments Actually Work? By Dr. Dorota Gribbin
eTwo is a treatment that uses radio-frequency energy (electrical as opposed to laser, which is light energy) to deliver an effective fractional and tightening treatment to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, pores and acne scarring. One of the top questions we get asked during our free acne scar treatment consultation is “How well does it work?” The eTwo Sublative device from Syneron-Candela is FDA approved for the treatment of mild to severe acne scarring. On top of this, we have seen excellent results and a huge difference in our clients. Dorota M Gribbin , MD, is highly-trained and experienced in the use clinically proven treatment options for acne scarring. ETWO SUBLATIVE SKIN TREATMENT SYSTEM Sublative skin treatment uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. This technique sends more energy beneath the surface of the skin in a cone shape to really maximise collagen production, while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. This is the key point of difference which means superior results with less downtime vs other laser treatments. The eTwo Sublative Skin Treatment System is one of the safest and low risk treatment options for acne and acne scars currently available. […]
