9:01 am
shawn and marsha, they're happy, healthy. >> they're happy, they're healthy. this little guy was born in the middle of the night and mother, father, and baby are all doing well. we wish them the best. look at that. look at that little guy. >> adorable feller. >> you will note he has quite a bit of hair. >> shawn said on facebook, of course, shawn always making self deprecating jokes. my baby already has more hair than i do. a new era. >> congratulationses to shawn and marsha. >> a lot of things have been happening the last 24 hours. >> yeah. >> a lot of excitement. here in town and also on one of our favorite shows, "dancing with the stars." last night it was the finale, laurie, youngest ever. >> 16-year-old girl. >> look how happy she is. >> but i mean, i could have called this one of the she's an olympic gold medalist. she's absolutely exceptional.
9:02 am
well as extreme leetlented. >> yeah. >> almost unfair really. when you think about hartallented and how coordinated she is, so fit. >> it's true. >> she equated it to winning a gold medal. she was on jimmy kimmel and that's what he said, i would not want have wanted to be on the show with you. >> yeah. >> because how can you compete with that? >> no. no chance. >> she did a great job. let's talk about the big announcement that was made holy >> everybody is talking about vegas golden knights. we finally have a logo and a team name. and people are talking. they're not afraid. to express their feelings. some people love the names. some aren't as thrilld about it. what do you think? >> i got to be honest with you. so when they first announced it, i was watching it live on tv. my first reaction was, really? golden? like i don't know. to me, i guess because i just came from california, i kind of thought he was golden state
9:03 am
is the golden state. then as i thought about it a little bit more, i started to like it more because i thought of the vegas committeation and gold. gold is strong. you were telling me it's not the las vegas golden knights. it's vegas gold knight. >> he wanted to take the las off because he felt vegas is how the locals referred to the team and the name of the city. and with four words in the name, not as catchy. >> here at doing poll. 2300 people have given their opinions on our facebook page. 53% hate the name. 47 love it. >> we'll have to keep track of it. sound off. >> either way, we have a team! >> bravo! >> if we win, everybody will be cool with the name. >> that's right. we want to hear from you about this. are you happy with the vegas golden knights? share your comments on our twitter and facebook pages. and you can also the links on "morning blend" com.
9:04 am
on the air. >> that would be awesome. >> hey, guys, beat the holiday bulge before it starts. you've heard of laser hair removal. tattoo removal. but did you know you can also laser off unwanted pounds? the new phase lairs medispa has the very latest in fat reduction technology. >> joining us now sarah lopez, vice president and co-owner of phaze laser medispa. good morning. >> good morning. >> hi! >> how are you? >> welcome back. >> thank you. thank you. we're so excited to announce -- we've been announcing, skull amsure is one of the more advanced technology when is it comes to body sculpting. and there is a lot of different options. i actually wanted to address one of the main questions that we get, whether it's during the consultation or clients that call and want to know the difference between cool sculpting and sculpture. >> yes. two different procedures. >> two different procedures. very similar.
9:05 am
same. so we're kind of glad about that because we don't want people to choose based on cost. that should never be the case. do your research. see what is more suitable for you and your lifestyle. so to answer that question, cool sculpting uses more of a freezing method. hence the name, cool sculpting. sculpture we use heat to destroy the fat cells. the reason why that's so important is because of the side effects. with cool sculpting, it's like a suction cup. so we describe it as a not only is it cooling and freezing your skin, your muscles, your nerves, as well as injuring the fat cells, with that comes swelling, bruising, a little bit of pain and soreness, versus sculpture. there is no down time. the applicator lays flat on the skin. you feel a little sore like you worked out and a little tender.
9:06 am
go work out, drink plenty of fluid and no side effects with that. this is the reason why we chose this. >> very interesting. your body actually breaks down that fat. take us through the procedure a little bit. we have some pictures here of sculpsure. so this is the device that goes -- >> correct. she has four applicators on her. there is that are placed on her abs. again, it's just on the skin. there is no suction. there is nothing of that nature. just lays flat on the tummy. that's her area of concern, so that's where it was placed. the treatment is 25 minutes. within just one treatment, you get 25% to 35% fat reduction. >> this is one treatment here. >> yes. >> is this before and after photo. >> yes. this one here, they focused on
9:07 am
>> the bra fat. >> we don't know how else to describe it. the little folds. it takes about two to six weeks to see results from the first treatment. we destroy it with the laser and then you allow the body to eliminate it through the lymphatic system. >> it doesn't hurt at all? >> it doesn't hurt at all. >> it's like a miracle. >> you feel a cooling sensation throughout the procedure. and if you too tender at the time, we control the settings. so that you have a very enjoyable -- >> if you're feeling it's working and you want to -- >> if you want to, it really all depends on the individual. so if you want to crank it up a little bit or you want to reduce it, we can definitely modify the setting. >> you see surge over the holidays? >> exactly. >> probably in two weeks you'll see a surge? >> or january. >> right. we really year round, to be honest, because sometimes
9:08 am
you can't get rid of that stubborn fat. and so people come in yearlong and definitely for the holidays and we're offering some great specials now. now is the time to come in and get that treatment done. >> specials and you have a grand opening coming up. >> we do. we have a grand opening december 8. so we'd love to welcome everybody to come. please come. take a look at our beautiful facility and there will be plenty of drinks and food and a great time. >> we talk about your toy drive? >> yes. yes. >> tell us about it. >> we have a toy driv started last week. it's gonna go all throughout the month of december -- november and december until december 8. we're gonna collect toys and give them over to the saint jude ranch. >> phenomenal. >> which actually i met through you. >> there we go! >> yea. >> real quick, do you have special offers? >> yes. black friday. come in, receive 50% off any treatment, whether it's hair

there is an amazing new technology that can change the way you see yourself in the mirror this holiday season. with the holidays approaching, we all want to look our best as we attend parties, get togethers and family gatherings. fortunately, our lifestyle expert scott defalco is here to show us an easy way to get rid of undereye bags and wrinkles. welcome, scott. >> j.j., get ready to be wowed again. the first time i came here i know it blew you away. it's just been picking up so much momentum all over the country. plexaderm is where it's at. you just are going to be amazed at the results. >> it's awesome and such an important area of our face. it really shows if you're tired, yes, if you're looking a little down. it shows under your eyes. >> yes.
9:20 am
look, i'm excited about this and i'm a guy because guys deal with this just as much, if not more than women because they don't wear make-up. their bags can get even bigger. i brought a video to prove that. we used a man in this video. i call him richie. you remember him. >> i remember richie. >> my good buddy richie bags. what you're going to see overt next three or four minutes is just incredible. he obviously he's got some issues going on under both eyes. he's rubbing the both eyes. we're coming back in real time to show you how quickly it works. in four to five minutes, it's completely gone. >> amazing. tell me about the product. what is it made out of? how does it work? >> it's funny. people are so interested in the technicalities it, most people will just say, does it work? they're really interested in how this product is so effective. first of all, it's derived from sill indicates in the shale rock. it's in this formula. researchers -- i carry that all over the country with me just to show people this.
9:21 am
in this shale rock. researchers and scientists have been work ago very long time on this. that's why it's so good. but what it does basically is that when you rub it into your skin like you saw richie do, what happens is that the molecules in the formula, they weave together and as it dries into your skin, it actually tightens your skin, smooths it out in that area, so it creates this nice invisible line, smooth contour under your eyes and also, even though it's specializes in the eye bags, it works on your forehead lines and crow's feet. >> oh, i believe i have a few of those. >> these are things -- gravity sucks, jj. we've talked about this. >> it does. >> it he affects us all. everything droops and sags. and we got to counteract that. this is a way to do that. it's completely topical, no injection, no doctor visits. >> that's good thing and it seems to work really quickly. >> within ten minutes, most people five minutes, the results are gonna take police and again, getting into the technicalities
9:22 am
what this does over time. people can relate to this when we bring up collagen because people will go and get collagen injections for this very reason. >> yes. >> so they're familiar with that. and what happens is that the collagen is responsible for the cell structure in your skin. when you're younger, it's all nice and smooth. but over time, it degrades and when it degrades, that's what causes the bags, wrinkle, the sagginess and a lot of people will go to the doctor. they'll get -- i don't know about you, i hate needles. they're painful. plus really nobody wants to go through that. so this is a way to counteract that. it's completely topical and like you said, it works in minute. >> it's something that is really interesting is to see before and afters of people, because nothing proves a product like before and afters. i believe we have some video and images. >> yeah. we have plenty. here we go. that really says it all. we can talk all we want. but look at that. the bag is completely gone. that's a guy. this is a woman right here. you know the funny thing is
9:23 am
try to rub these areas with make-up, it can make it worse sometimes. >> it does. i'll tell you why, because you actually just cake make-up on to the skin and it makes it look even more wrinkly. it's amazing issues some of these results, it almost looks like it's a little balloon and then it deflates. >> it takes the air right out of it. again, the technology is so advanced and here is another great thing about it. there is other products out there that do this. and they've even shows. but they say that the results from their products are two to three hours. and i was like, well -- >> thousand this last? >> six to eight hours. so this is gonna get you through your whole day or if you're out on a date. >> something you do in the morning. >> yes. i'll take you through the morning. you're getting ready. here is what you want to do with plexaderm. first of all, you'll put it on a clean, dry face. i'm sure you were probably going to ask me about make-up because women deal with that and men, like me in front of the cameras.
9:24 am
clean dry face, put the plexaderm on just like you saw richie do, who we'll come back to in a second. then what you'll do is put the plexaderm on and wait about ten minutes. there he is right there. >> there he is. >> look at that. j.j., it's halfway gone. we're just coming up on two minutes. i was in the room. >> that's amazing. >> i was in the room with the executives, we were all nervous. and after two minutes, we were like oh, my god. wait in another couple minute. what are the specials today? the "morning blend" viewers? >> yes. for the "morning blend" viewers, call the 1-800-number on your screen, or go to we have a 40% off buy two, get one free. plexaderm. we also want to suggest maybe you'll get this because it's an oilless based moisturizer, which you want president obama put on after thes -- you put that on. and then you put your make-up on.
9:25 am
>> incredible. should we check back with richie? >> why not? we showed him at his worse. it's gone. >> we were amazed and we did the other eye just so people know we didn't send him out looking like that. >> thank you so much. it's such a great holiday gift as well. >> it really is. >> give your loved one the gift of bright eyes right now. plexaderm is offering 40% off. and you can take advantage of this buy two, get one free promotion. for more information, head to on your screen. thank you so much, scott. >> thank you. >> all right. now before we head to break, live the life of a true las vegas high roller. tour five of the city's most over the top hotel suites for an experience money cannot buy and best of all, to offer -- it's all for a good cause. it's for the junior achievement. you'll see a one of a kind penthouse designed by lenny
