Body Contouring and Skin Tightening

 

Body Contouring has many benefits.  Typically the main goal is to reduce the appearance of cellulite, tone and firm the skin on various areas of the body.  Rhythmic massage and radio frequency helps to break down subcutaneous fat and promote metabolism of fat cells and toxins.  Multiple treatments and following the before and after care instructions strictly, will be required in order to see optimal results.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ultra Sonic Cavitation

Science Behind Ultra Sonic Cavitation

Ultra Sonic Cavitation a.k.a Ultrasonic Lipolysis, uses ultrasonic low-frequency radio waves to break apart fat cells, releasing the fat content to outside the cell wall.  The adipose fat is then absorbed into your body by the lymphatic and circulatory systems and eliminated as waste.  Cavitation is extremely convenient.  Recovery is minimal. The ultrasonic sound waves can be heard inside the head during treatment and gentle warmth can be felt on the skin. 

 

Ideal Candidates

An ideal candidate should be in overall good health, doesn't smoke, has realistic expectations and is already within 15 lbs. of weight goal.  

 

Side Effects

Short term bruising, pain, redness and headache.  Some people may experience loose skin or dimples and waves in their skin after healing.  

 

Areas of the Body Eligible for Treatment

Stomach, Hips or Flanks, Upper Arms, Thighs (front and back), Calves

 

Contraindications

Menstrual Cycle (No Spotting or 3 days after cycle), Pregnant or nursing, Epileptic, Cardiac or circulatory disease/condition, Pacemaker, Abdominal operations, Abnormally high or low blood pressure, any kind of tumor or cancer, Any current infections or Allergic to nickel or zinc. 

 

Results

It is recommended that multiple sessions may be required in order to see desired results.  One session every 3-7 days, depending on the person, 3-10 treatments for best results. each treatment could be anywhere from 20-40 minutes. With no more than 30 min every 72 hours. 

Should start seeing noticeable results around 12 weeks post treatments.  The impact on the fat cells is immediate.  Some people can start experiencing changes at 2-3 weeks resulting in reduced size of targeted area.  

Results are also seen best with fully compliance with the pre and post care.  Increased water consumption is absolutely essential for flushing and eliminating the liquefied fat. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RF Skin Tightening

Science Behind

Energy waves heat the deep layer of the dermis.  This heat stimulates collagen production.  The optimal temperature for the skin to be at is 42°C.   RF therapy may help fight sun damage.  Research has found that RF therapy is usually safe and effective with little to no side effects.  RF alters the network of connective tissues that hold the fat cells in place, also known as cellulite.  

 

Side Effects

Temporary swelling, redness, tingling, people with darker skin are at higher risk from Laser and RF Treatments.

 

Areas of the Body Eligible for Treatment

Chin, Neck, Face, Abdomen, Thighs, Buttocks, Arms, Flanks, Back

 

Contraindications

Cardiac pacemakers, Any metal close to the area (internal or external), severe heart disease, connective tissue/muscle disorders, Pregnancy or nursing, Broken blood vessels, ANY types of blood thinner, HIV/AIDS, Lupus and ALL forms of Cancer. 

 

Results

It is recommended 15- 30 minutes per treatment, 2-3 times per week.  An average of 2-10 treatments are required to see substantial results depending on the area of the body or face to see substantial results.  Radio Frequency Body Contouring helps improve skin laxity, cellulite and stretch marks. Stimulates the lymphatic system to aid in the drainage of unwanted toxins. Encouraging the body's natural production of collagen and elastin. More toned physique. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vacuum RF Therapy

Science Behind

Vacuum RF Therapy lifts the cellulite away from the muscle, encouraging blood flow, stimulating lymphatic drainage and amplifying the effects of massage or exercise.  It is similar to cupping.  Uses suction and pressure to release the fluids in the fat cells that cause cellulite.  Radio Frequency creates superficial and deep heating of connective tissues, dermal collagen fibers and fat cells.  It also softens connective tissue and collagen for improved skin elasticity and resilience.  Cellular turnover is increased and makes the skin to appear tighter and more youthful.  Relatively painless, relaxing, gentle warmth with comfortable massage.   This treatment is usually performed in connection with Cavitation or Laser Lipolysis or can be a stand-alone treatment.

 

Areas of the Body Eligible for Treatment

Legs, Buttocks, Abdomen, Back and Upper Arms

 

Absolute Contraindications: CANNOT Be Treated

An average of 2-10 treatments, depending on the area being treated such as body part or area of the face are required to see substantial results.  Radio Frequency and Vacuum Therapy helps by reducing excess fat deposits, improved blood circulation, relaxing muscle tension, increased lymph circulation and elimination of toxins, improved skin tightness, firmness and elasticity, and the prevention of cellulite by inhibiting fat storage. 

 

 

 

Laser Lipolysis a.k.a Low Level Light Therapy

Science Behind

Laser Lipolysis is Low Level Light Therapy.  This form of lipolysis utilizes low level or cold laser technology to reduce fat volume and localized fat deposits over almost all of the body with out surgery.  The light energy disrupts the external membrane of fat cells inducing lipolysis.  After 4 mins of laser exposure, 80% of the fat is released from the cell , and at 6 mins after, 99% of the fat is released from the cell.  The released fat is collected in interstitial space, where it is able to be burned off or eliminated by the body via lymphatic and circulatory systems.   Laser Lipolysis' low level laser technology has been studied and use for over 40 years for many biomedical purposes.  Laser Lipolysis also induces collagen production under the skin.  It has also been approved for pain and inflammation. 

 

Contraindications

Impaired kidney or liver function, epilepsy, autoimmune disorders, active cancer, thyroid dysfunction, photosensitivity, and pregnancy and nursing.  

Cannot have abnormally low body fat percentage for your size, age, and weight.  (Permanent removal of fat cells).

Cryolipolysis a.k.a "Cool Sculpting

Science Behind

Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive fat removal procedure often marketed as fat freezing.  The cooling of the subcutaneous fat cells, which induces lipolysis (breaking down of the fat cells), without damaging any tissues or the skin.  It is not a permanent solution to fat loss, however it can reduce the fat cells that are already present and it cannot prevent remaining fat cells from increase in size.  There is hardly any side effects.  The fat breaks down over a period of two to four months.  Resulting in a completely natural fat loss over time.  Multiple treatments are always recommended for optimal results.  Cryolipolysis can be done no sooner than once a month.

Far-Infrared Heat Sauna Blanket

 

Science Behind

Far Light can transform light energy into heat energy.  This promotes better blood circulation, activation of cells and promote the body to rid of toxins and metabolic waste.  Better circulation allows for more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body by reducing pain and speeding up the healing process.  This treatment is deeply relaxing!  It is great for stress relief, sore joints, and stiff muscles.  Can also improve skin quality, sleep quality, reduce excess body fat and perspiration detoxification.  Perspiration is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases heart rate cardiac output and metabolic rate.   A 30 min session is equivalent to swimming for an hour, bicycling for an hour, weightlifting 100 times,  sit-ups, running for an hour and yoga for 30 minutes.  Which means that a single session can burn off 200-600 calories.  

Contraindications

Consult with family physician if you are taking medications such as diuretics, barbiturates, beta-blockers, anticholinergenics and possibly antihistamines, under 12 years old, elderly, cardiovascular conditions, or have chronic conditions,  obesity,  low or high blood pressure, pregnancy, menstruation, acute joint injury (wait 48 hrs or swelling subsides)hemophilia, fever, insensitivity to heat, metal implants, pacemakers or defibrillators,  alcohol or alcohol abuse. 

Recommendations

Wait 1-2 hours after eating before using sauna.  Treatments can be anywhere from 10 -60min maximum 3-4 times per week.   Consuming a sugar-free electrolyte beverage post treatment will help replenish lost fluids.
