Ultrasonic Lipo-Cavitation 

Ultrasonic Lipo-Cavitation is a new, non-surgical, non-invasive fat removal technique that REDUCES BODY CIRCUMFERENCE and for clients nearing their goal weight to spot reduce the final areas of stubborn fat pockets. It works by using ultrasound to breakdown fat cells and liquefy them.  The vibration's impact and movement in the fat cells will effectively cause the fat cells to shrink. The fat is then metabolized and released through the liver and natural means. Treatments are done on areas most desired like abdominal, love handles, upper arms, thighs, buttocks and even cellulite, no pain, no downtime, you can go back to work afterwards, it feels like a hot stone massage. Combined with a proper diet and healthy lifestyle you can have the body you always wanted. A workout or an Infrared Sauna session  is necessary to eliminate the destroyed fat. Recommend 6-12 sessions for best results. 

Ultrasonic Cavitation or Ultrasound Liposuction is a new, non-surgical fat removal procedure. This revolutionary procedure was designed in Europe. Because there is no surgery and no anesthesia, there is no hospital stay, no time off from work and no recovery time. Clients see immediate results and will continue to see results in the reduction of fat up to a week following the treatment.

The treatment uses cavitation technology which allows for non-surgical attack of inflexible fat deposits that no matter how much you diet and exercise, never seems to disappear.

Unlike a traditional tummy tuck or liposuction, in ultrasonic cavitation there are no knives, no anesthesia and no surgery. Ultrasonic cavitation is similar to mesotherapy or lipodissolve in that it is a treatment for cellulite called localized adiposity.

The most common problem areas are the buttocks, abdomen, love handles (flanks), saddle bags (thighs), upper arms, inner knees and male breasts. Body contouring offers a way to get your body back that requires no recovery times, leaves no scars and needs no anesthesia.

How does Ultrasonic Cavitation work?

Ultrasonic Cavitation is a no surgery and no anesthesia method of liposuction. The procedure is very popular in Europe and has quickly spreading across the globe. Ultrasonic Cavitation destroys intractable fat cells by using low frequency sound waves. This type of sound wave can destroy the fat cells without causing damage to any other tissues or organs. Ultrasonic therapy forces a powerful sound wave to the fat cell membranes. The fat cell membrane succumbs to the pressure, is reduced to liquid and is expelled through the body’s normal metabolic method.

Ultrasonic Cavitation destroys fat cells at such a rate and in such a quantity that fat storage is significantly reduced or eliminated. Clients see the results and are pleased with the increase in their body’s fat cell metabolism.

Immediate and permeant results of cavitation therapy

After the first treatment, clients experience a reduction of several cm in circumference and added results after the next visit and longer. Age, metabolism, changes in hormones, medications, tissue structure and treatment area will have an impact on the results. To maintain the results it is important to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

Does the treatment hurt?

Most clients found the treatment to be very comfortable and trouble-free. Some clients experience warmth during the treatment and a small amount of noise discomfort, but there is no pain.

Specific guidelines for before and after the treatment

It is important to follow a low calorie and healthy diet and to drink at least 2 liters of water 2 days before and after the treatment. Fat elimination is accelerated by the amount of water your drink therefore, water is key component to eliminate the fat.

Results of Ultrasonic Cavitation vs. Liposuction or Tummy Tuck?

The results of the Ultrasonic Cavitation are very similar to those of Liposuction and a Tummy Tuck as it safely (no damage to the vascular system) removes and prevents recurring cellulite in the treated areas.

Ultrasonic Cavitation creates lipolysis of fatty acids from the fat cell membrane or adipocytes by the process of stable cavitation. Ultrasonic Cavitation increases cell penetration of the adipocytes. There is an increase in triglyceride flow and a destruction of the fibers. Since the liver metabolizes a part of the adipocytes and expels it in the urine, it is necessary to drink plenty of water before and after the treatment.

How many sessions are usually needed?

While you will see immediate results in the first session, it is necessary to have between 6 and 12 sessions for optimum results.

Pre-treatment, Procedure and Post-Treatment

Pre-treatment

  • Three days before beginning treatments clients are advised to drink at least 2 liters of water per day. This is so that the Ultrasound and Radio Frequency waves can target water molecules under the skins surface and so the more that are available the more successful the treatment will be. It is also advisable to do the same for 3 days after the treatment.
  • Follow a low fat, moderate protein, low glycemic diet and eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Do soft exercise (for instance 20 minute walk). Especially after the treatment to stimulate the lymphatic and urinary systems. Otherwise the fat can get staged again in the same area. It can take two or three days to see real results from a treatment.
  • Keep your skin hydrated and moisturized.

Procedure

The treatment is fairly relaxing and pain free. First, an in depth consultation will take place during which a treatment plan will be discussed and tailored to your own specific needs. We will record your measurements required and ask you to sit or lie down depending on what area is to be treated.

The area to be treated is discreetly exposed and gel is applied. The ultrasound hand piece is then systematically moved over the area you wish to contour and/or smooth by liquifying fat cells. Then the radio frequency hand piece is slowly rotated over the target area transmitting radio waves through the upper layers of the skin to the dermis, heating the dermis to between 40-45 degrees Celsius without burning the skins surface. Your skin will feel increasingly warm in the treated area, but not usually uncomfortably so. It is important to let the us know if the treatment is becoming uncomfortable so that we can move on to another area used to massage the area to heat and tighten the skin.

The vacuum hand piece is then used to increase blood circulation through the area and facilitate lymphatic drainage. Your measurements will be retaken and results recorded.

Post-treatment

  • Drink at least 2 liters of water for up to 3 days after treatment.
  • Refrain from drinking
  • Caffeine beverages
  • Refrain from any alcohol consumption during your treatment program. Alcohol can prevent your liver from working to remove fats as it will make alcohol metabolism its priority before fat removal and could hinder your results. Alcohol is treated like sugar and your body will convert it into fat.
  • Follow a low fat, moderate protein, low glycemic diet. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Do soft exercise to stimulate the lymphatic and urinary systems. Otherwise the fat can get staged again in the same area. It can take two or three days to see real results from a treatment.
  • Keep your skin hydrated and moisturized

NOTE: The procedure is not a miracle worker and is not for people who want to get rid of a lot of excess body fat (obese). Instead, it is for those who have isolated areas of extra fat that are not helped by diet and exercise. It is not like liposuction, which can remove a great deal of fat. But it is perfect for patients who have no desire for surgery, but are looking for modest reductions in their problem areas.

Microdermabrasion

Particle skin resurfacing or microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation also referred to as micro resurfacing, is a procedure for skin rejuvenation that removes the outer layer of skin through use of a highly controlled diamond tip wand. The wand tip is made of natural diamond chips which polish the skin and remove dead cells, which are then vacuumed back into a waste filter. This treatment is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure for the treatment of blackhead and whiteheads, fine wrinkles, sun damaged skin, acne prone skin, superficial age spots, large pores, scar reduction, hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration), stretch marks, minor body scars, pitted scars and oily skin. Microdermabrasion can give your skin superb results (not miracles, but very effective results).

Microdermabrasion treatments regenerate the epidermal cell structure of the skin increasing its elasticity and collagen generation, thus causing the epidermis to grow back thicker and smoother. The benefits of microdermabrasion include little pain or discomfort, no anesthesia, no downtime and treatment of all skin types. Almost all areas of the body can be treated except for eyelids, ears and lips.

The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes depending on the area treated and the desired outcome. The skin may feel tight as if exposed to the sun or wind for 24-48 hours after the procedure. A treatment may sometimes leave stripes or red lines that resemble fine scratches. This is temporary and is related to skin sensitivity.

After the procedure, patients can apply make-up and sunscreen and return to work. Because exfoliation increases photosensivity, patients must use sun protection after microdermabrasion. Patients do not need to use any special products before a microdermabrasion treatment, but should not use retinols or glycolic acids 48-72 hours before and after the procedure.

Particle skin resurfacing is a multiple-step process that is gradual and less invasive than other treatments for exfoliation. When patients are treated once a week or every two weeks for 5-6 treatments, there can be a significantly noticeable improvement in the texture, color, and appearance of their skin. Patients who should not receive microdermabrasion include those with active acne, Accutane usage, rosacea, raised warts, keloids, eczema, skin cancer, and people on oral blood thinners.

Benefits of MIcrodermabrasion

  • Gives skin an overall fresh, healthy glow
  • Fades age spots
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles (crows feet)
  • Evens skin tone and color
  • Refines and smoothes skin surface
  • Minimizes the color of stretch marks
  • Helps even out wavy surface of skin
  • Minimizes effects of pitted scars and acne scars
  • Increase elasticity by strengthening and renewing all 3 layers of the skin
  • Regulate abnormal cell division and production
  • Results in a smooth, even colored and glowing skin

Microdermabrasion can also improve:

  • Oily or dull skin.
  • Enlarged pores.
  • Clogged pores.
  • Mild acne scars.
  • Mild complexion problems (such as uneven pigmentation or poor skin texture)

The benefits of microdermabrasion also include enhanced circulation and lymph flow, which promote the internal health of the skin. 

Remember, microdermabrasion is a progressive, not aggressive, regimen. Clients should start seeing significant results after the third treatment with major improvement visible after the fifth or sixth procedure.


Dermaplaning 

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure designed to smooth the appearance, eliminate fine lines, and reduce acne scarring.  The innovative technique carefully removes the top layers of the tissue, ridding the face of the dead skin and ‘peach fuzz’ that can trap in dirt and oils.  The procedure will allow for new skin to appear, brightening the complexion.

No pre-treatment is required before Dermaplaning.  Perfect for a last minute procedure, dramatic results can be seen immediately after the first treatment.  No chemicals are used during the Dermaplaning procedure making is suitable for every skin type and tone, even darker complexions.  It is gentle and safe for pregnant or nursing patients.  In an afternoon, the face can take on a healthy, glowing appearance with the cost or recovery time associated with other more invasive procedures.

The Ideal Candidate for Dermaplaning:

Dermaplaning is safe for use on all skin types and tones.  Both men and women will experience a smoother, brighter appearance after an Dermaplaning treatment.  The ideal candidate will understand the procedure, have realistic expectations, and be in overall good health.  During the consultation appointment, the Esthetician will perform a brief skin evaluation, determining if Dermaplaning is right for the particular situation.

The Dermaplaning Procedure:

The Dermaplaning treatment will take about 45 minutes in the office.  To begin, the esthetician will cleanse and prep the face.  Next, a state-of-the-art surgical steel blade (Epi-blade) is meticulously drawn across the face.  Each movement of the blade is similar to shaving.  Once the entire area has been treated, patients are able to return to their normal activities.

Recovery from Dermaplaning:

There is little downtime after an Dermaplaning treatment.  Clients can return to school or work immediately.  Initially, the face may be slightly red, although this will quickly resolve.  Any discomfort during the recovery is easily alleviated through over-the-counter pain medications.  Should another procedure, such a Chemical Peel, follow the treatment, specific at home instructions will be provided.

For optimal results, it is recommended that patients repeat the Dermaplaning procedure once a month.  Complimentary procedures, such as an Image Chemical Peel or LED Light Therapy can be added to increase the benefits and maintain the newly acquired, youthful complexion.

RF Cellulite Vacuum Therapy 

Using high-frequency Radio Frequency and vacuum technology combined, direct access is significantly increased to the deeper fat cells, bringing fat cells to a fast-active state from the production of localized heat, so that effective blood circulation occurs. This increased localized blood circulation within the dermis aims to tighten the sagging or loose skin due to the normal effects of ageing. Your skin will have its elasticity improved aided by an increased metabolic activity. Then through the sweat glands and lymphatic system the excess fat and toxins are excreted out of the body. This aims to further dissolve fat cells, strengthening the integrity of cells mitochondria, enhancing blood and lymph circulation with metabolism benefits.

Benefits of Vacuum Therapy

Weight loss-

The vacuum creates a low atmospheric pressure, increasing the blood supply and circulation to the cellulite and fat prone areas of the lower body. Thanks to this increase in blood circulation, fats are able to be transported from fat cells into the working muscles where they can be burnt off. This increased supply of blood, nutrition and oxygen to the lower body, while exercising the muscles, results in higher metabolism, cell activity and faster fat burning.

Cellulite Reduction-

The sub-atmospheric pressure, created by the vacuum, not only activates the metabolism of fats, but also the lymphatic system, which ensures better removal of metabolic waste products. Stronger blood circulation to the skin and an enriched supply of oxygen, vitamins, minerals and enzymes act positively against orange peel skin. Long-term studies on women with a predisposition to cellulite and fat have not only shown the durability of the results achieved from vacuum therapy, but, as an added bonus in many cases, formative tissue in the affected areas has regenerated- turning back the skin's biological clock by up to 10 years.

Additional benefits of vacuum

  • Improves circulation of blood and lymphatic drainage
  • Reduced appearance of cellulite
  • Increased metabolism
  • Burns fat faster
  • Promotes positive mood
  • Improves body profile
  • Tones and smooths skin

Recommendations for Maximum Results

Impact therapy of a minimum of 10 to 20 sessions (3 times a week) over the course of a 6 week period in order to "kick start" the metabolism into action. Results are generally already visible after 10 applications (although in some cases weight and centimeter loss may not occur immediately, skin appears to be smoother). Exercise under vacuum therapy takes only 30 minutes, but this is sufficient. Under normal circumstances fat is burned in muscles only after 20-30 minutes of exercise. Under vacuum therapy this time is decreased by one third. Whilst exercising under vacuum therapy ensure that you exercise in the aerobic band (approx. 65% of your maximum heart rate), this is important because at this pulse rate consumption is fueled by 80% fats and only 20% sugars/carbohydrates.


Infrared Sauna Blanket

What is a Sauna Blanket?

The Sauna Blanket is a Thermal Far Infrared Ray Sauna that uses a body wrap concept to help detoxify the body of unwanted chemicals and break up fatty tissue deposits. The Sauna Blanket has two benefits, beauty and health. The Sauna Blanket will help lose pounds, inches, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. It will also aid with lowering blood pressure, reducing inflammation, ease muscle and joint pain, arthritis pain, and headaches. It helps clean the body of toxins and has also been proven to improve your mood. 

How does the Sauna Blanket help aid weight loss?

The Sauna Blanket uses FIR Infrared heat to assist the body with weight loss. The use of Far Infrared Ray (FIR) thermal heat therapy seems to be to be one of the most effective and scientific methods for weight loss or body sculpting. The Sauna Blanket and the FIR radiant heat warms the body and causes increased blood circulation and lowers blood pressure. The Infrared Sauna gives measurable results, highly effective at fat loss, pain management, cellular detoxification and physical therapy system that is fast, easy and effective. The infrared deep heat therapy activates the functions of enzymes and metabolism.  The beauty of the (FIR) Far Infrared sauna is that you will burn up to 700 calories in a 30 min session this is equivalent to running at 5 mph for 60 minutes. Adding the Sauna Blanket session post-workout will increase the amount of calories burned since your body is already in a calorie burning state

How does the Sauna Blanket Detoxify Your Body?

The deep penetrating Infrared heat causes toxins to be released from cells into the lymph fluid. Since sweat is manufactured from the lymph fluid, toxinsexit the body through the sweat. By taking this detoxifying load off your liver and kidneys, even people with impaired liver or kidney function will enjoy significant benefit. Increased circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Sweating helps detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel, cadmium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.  

How often can I have my Sauna Blanket sessions?

It is recommended that sessions be limited to three times per week and should not be done on back to back days. This allows the body time to adjust and it also allows time for the dissolved fat to be excreted. (Recommendation Treatment:  1 -45 min. Session, Every 2 days)

Please remember that FIR infrared heat uses radiant heat to penetrate the skin at depths of 1 ½" to 4". This radiant heat helps warm the body inside and penetrates the skin helps reach fat deposits and break them up. When fat deposits are broken up, they are released and excreted from the body as toxins. This is why multiple treatments are necessary when the body has larger amounts of fat deposits. You'll experience increased metabolic activity and calorie-burning for as long as 36 hours post-treatment!

Who should not use the Sauna Blanket?

There are contraindications for individuals with Enclosed Infections, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Hemophilia, Parkinson’s, Fever and Heat Sensitivity, Broken Bones, Implants, Defibrillator, Recent Surgical Patients, Epilepsy, Asthma, Menstruation and Pregnancy.
