Sweet Sixteen

Posted on by

As it is the new year, I was thinking today about THE NEW YEAR, SWEET 16-2016! I decided to focus on all the possibilities and what I want to move into this NEW YEAR. The phrase — Out with the old and in with the new — came to mind and for some reason, this just didn’t sit well with me. Sure, there are things that I want to release and change, however, I can’t say I will forget or move on from, but instead do my best to work on my internal setbacks and flaws. Who doesn’t have flaws, we all do so with that being said 2016 looks pretty sweet to me! Acknowledging is a pretty big step for anyone!

I’ve worked a lot this year on my driven purpose, what I have to offer to society. I am self-judgment, I am super -duper self-critical and a perfectionist. It drives people closest to me CRAZY, Oh- if they only knew how I felt. Through years of critical talk, I have come to realize I am capable of bringing so much more this year because of all the hard work and accomplishments the past few years, okay or many years, it served me well, to be honest. It made me work harder, train longer, commit 110%. I’m older and have very different goals. So even though I no longer want to have this self-judgment be a part of me, I have to embrace it and thank it for serving me for so many years. And so I can now use that inner-voice that used to bring a constant FEAR that I am worthy enough, It’s time to give myself credit for all my accomplishments. For that voice inside of me is trained to serve me how I need it. We all have a gift and a purpose in this life I am so appreciative to have met mine!

There are many things that I have worked on internally this past year — things that I didn’t like about myself. But my brilliant Coach told me that I needed to embrace ME – for all parts of you are there for a reason. And she was SO right. Thank you Stephanie Hines! As hard as I tried to fight it for so long! LOL

So this year, I encourage you to not to quit those bad habits cold turkey, but let’s DO IT TOGETHER and reflect on the things you wish to release and hopefully you too will see how those lessons were blessings in disguise- that got you to the SWEETEST year of your LIFE!

Sending Blessings!

Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Cryogel, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) & Radio Frequency (RF) Technology Combination Protocol

Posted on by

I (Noelle Tenaglia ) have found by incorporating the usage of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Cryogel in combination with Low level laser therapy (LLLT) and Radio Frequency (RF) Technology helps to increase the effectiveness of this Radio Frequency (RF) ability. By “heating” the area(s) with (LLLT) and (RF) along with the application of the HA/ Cryogel accelerates the ability to of the above listed technologies to provide more effective results. Research shows Hyaluronic Acid (abbreviated to as HA) and Cryogel cross-linked to be a very effective combination. I have found this effective combination to have multiple applications There is a provided process for preparing a HA cryogel, the process comprising the steps of combining HA, a cross-linking agent and a solvent to form a solution, freezing the solution before the formation of less than 10% of the cross-linking bonds of the cross-linked HA cryogel formed and thawing the solution. Cryogels are a new class of materials with a highly porous structure and having a broad variety of morphologies. Cryogels are produced using a cryotropic gelation technique. Cryotropic gelation (cryogelation or cryostructuration) is a specific type of gel- formation which takes place as a result of cryogenic treatment of the systems potentially capable of gelation. One particular study shows the use of the cryogel as claimed in any one of claims 21 to 26 participants effective for use in the manufacture of a medicament for tissue augmentation, cosmetic surgery, wound dressing, post surgical adhesion prevention, regenerative medicine applications, and tissue engineering applications or for use as a scaffold for the incorporation of cells for tissue repair.

Hyaluronic acid (also known as hyaluronan or sodium hyaluronate, and abbreviated to as HA) is a non-sulfated glycosaminoglycan which is distributed widely throughout connective, epithelial, and neural tissues. It is one of the main components of the extracellular matrix, contributes significantly to cell proliferation and migration, and may also be involved in the progression of some malignant tumors. For example, HA is a major component of the synovial fluid and has been found to increase the viscosity of the fluid. Along with lubricant, it is one of the fluid’s main
lubricating components. HA is an important component of articular cartilage, where it is present as a coat around each cell (chondrocyte). When aggrecan monomers bind to HA in the presence of link protein, large highly negatively charged aggregates form. These aggregates imbibe water and are responsible for the resilience of cartilage (its resistance to compression). The molecular weight (size) of HA in cartilage decreases with age, but the amount increases. HA is also a major component of skin, where it is involved in tissue repair. When skin is excessively
exposed to UVB rays, HA acts as a free radical scavenger, absorbing free radicals to degrade. The skin becomes inflamed (sunburn); the cells in the dermis stop producing as much HA and increase the rate of its degradation. HA degradation products also accumulate in the skin after UV exposure. HA is nontoxic, non-immunogenic and biodegradable. HA is degraded by a family of enzymes called hyaluronidases. In humans, there are at least seven types of hyaluronidase-like enzymes, several of which are tumor suppressors. HA derivatives represent an alternative treatment option for the aging face, particularly for facial lines, for lip augmentation and for treatment of distensible atrophic facial scarring. It is known that HA and the like, degrade at low temperature. In particular, it is recommended that hyaluronic acid gels are not frozen in order to avoid structural degradation. As such, there is a prejudice in the art against subjecting HA to low temperatures. It has been found that using the process described above, hyaluronic acid (and its derivatives), can be cross-linked at or below the freezing point of several solvents or solvent systems to provide a cryogel. Surprisingly, contrary to the prejudice in the art, reducing the temperature of the HA during processing to
form a cryogel does not result in structural degradation leading to high free HA (uncross- linked HA).

To summarize these findings on the HA/ Cryogel has been shown in the studies to be very compatible compounds. However, the cross-linking process of these compounds; which each have there own amazing functionalities, creates an even more effective product. Then I have found by taking this invention of (HA)/ Cryogel in the field of biomedical engineering and applying it with my technique with the Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) and Radio Frequency (RF) technology not only helps to penetrate into the layers of the tissue, increases the ability for skin to tighten, increase skin elasticity, body fat site reduction and fluid reduction on all areas of the body. Specifically my patient,{(X) for HIPPA purposes will remain anonymous}, I found when tightening
the frontal neck region that the patient tended to have a lot of fluid build up on upper spinal region. Patient (X) stated reoccurring tension headaches and Migraines with shoulder pain. With the combination treatment of HA/ Cryogel, EndyMed, and Zerona I found that this combination was able to reduce the spinal fluid on upper extremities, along with drainage of fluid on the entire spinal column.


Under the conditions of this study this preliminary result demonstrates the crosslinked Hyaluronic Acid (HA) under cryo-condition (Cryogel) won’t have adverse effects on cell growth to show the cell biocompatibility yet combined with Low Level Laser Theray (LLLT) and Radio Frequency (RF) Technology yields sigfinacant results in many areas outside of yet to be studied capabilities. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Cryogel combined with provided research has proven capabilities. The technique, product development enhancements, and technology will open a new
biomedical along with non-surgical procedure that our findings show with the clinical data yields greater effect that either product or technology can do alone.Various modifications and variations to the described embodiments of the invention will be apparent to those skilled in the art without departing from the scope and spirit of the invention.
