One of the newest devices for body contouring isn’t a laser or ultrasound or radio frequency device. Rather it’s Tickle Lipo and many patients and physicians are very impressed by this device that uses movement rather than heat to make fat easier to remove.
“I’m just so excited about TickleLipo,” says Dr. Tess Mauricio who performs Tickle Lipo in San Diego. “I’m really pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to perform and how happy the patients are. Areas that were very difficult to treat with liposculpture such as the arms and the thighs are made so much better with the Tickle Lipo.” Dr. Mauricio describes that the device removes fat cells in a three dimensional way. With traditional liposuction, the cannula would move in a linear manner, making it difficult to remove a three dimensional amount of volume. That is much easier with the TickleLipo. “It’s a lot smoother and it’s a lot easier to shape so I’m a lot more confident when I talk to my patients. I can assure them that we’re going to get really smooth results. It’s the key to creating a great lipo result,” says Dr. Mauricio.

Dr. Tess was interviewed for an article on acne,
“Acne doesn’t have to ruin your teen’s self-esteem”
With the teen years, and even later, come a condition that can ruin self-esteem.
Some studies say it can even lead to greater chances of suicide.
The problem? Acne.
I spoke with internationally renowned dermatologist Tess Mauricio of La Jolla about a study showing suicide thoughts are almost twice as common in teens ages 18-19 with substantial acne than with those who have little or no bumps.
The study, published by the University of Oslo in Norway, also found that suicidal ideation was twice as likely in girls and three times as likely as boys with bad cases of acne.
Other effects of severe acne included mental and social difficulties, failure to thrive at school, being bullied and never having a romantic or physical relationship.
Dr. Mauricio, known as America’s Favorite Dermatologist and featured on such shows as “Rachael Ray” and “The Doctors,” is trying to get the word out that acne doesn’t have to be a fact of life. Or a death sentence.
It’s treatable. More so now than ever.
