Similar to swimsuit season, many of us are planning ahead to look our best for the occasion.

There are procedures and treatments available to help you achieve both, in time for late December's swath of soirees - and Dr. Peter Capizzi of CapizziMD, Charlotte, NC's preeminent medical center for plastic surgery and aesthetics, is sharing his top 3 picks, as well as advice on how to make the most of each procedure.

"To achieve the best results with any skin or body procedure, prepare in advance - keep your skin exfoliated and hydrated, and don't skip those workouts - as the key to great results is starting with optimum health," said Dr. Peter Capizzi. "Also, all of my 'top 3' treatments are most effective when administered by Licensed Medical Aestheticians." Dr. Peter Capizzi's Top 3 Recommended Non-Invasive Procedures this Holiday Season:CoolSculpting As its name suggests, CoolSculpting is a clinically tested, FDA-approved procedure that involves freezing the body's most stubborn fat cells in the belly, buttocks, arms, thighs or back until they disintegrate. It is especially effective for male and female clients who are within a reasonable weight for their frames, but who suffer from unwanted and unsightly body bulging that remains resistant to diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting requires no incisions, no extended recovery times and almost no postoperative discomfort. It can therefore be a successful and non-invasive alternative to liposuction under the right circumstances. Patients can usually return to work or school the same day as the procedure. Dr. Capizzi's patients report noticeable fat reduction within about 3 weeks of their first visit, with the most dramatic results visible at around 3 months. In the hands of a qualified expert such as Dr. Capizzi and his team of cosmetic specialists, the procedure has the potential to radically reform the entire figure in relaxing one-hour sessions with no downtime.
