An aesthetic treatment based on inaudible low-frequency ultrasound. For the reduction of fat in any part of the body such as arms, legs, abdomen, thighs, neck, buttocks, but also to combat the formation of fibrous cellulite, responsible for the orange peel skin.
Our machine differs from laser, in that it’s ultrasonic – which means we use low frequency ultrasonic waves which generate empty microbubbles in the liquid situated in the interior of the adipose tissue (simply the fatty layer below the skin).
It is a very smart way to reduce fat because by doing this the fat is converted into liquid and then naturally eliminated with your urine. When cavitation is followed by a lymphatic drainage procedure the process is faster, as the drainage is very effective in eliminating liquids. Let’s look at the details on how ultrasonic cavitation works:
The ultrasonic cavitation reduces fat cells with certain manipulation techniques, thanks to a machine that is placed on the skin exactly in the area that has to be treated. The cavitation physic principle is a recent breakthrough in aesthetic medicine. This machine works with the ultrasound that forms bubbles in the tissues where the fat cells are. The bubbles expand and then are immediately compressed. The temperature increases due to the sudden pressure variation and the bubble implodes. The implosion damages the fat cells, reducing the localized adiposity.
With cavitation the fat cells are exposed to a pressure that breaks their membranes, unleashing the destruction of adipose deposits. The fat contained (triglycerides) then fragments into diglycerides that are expelled via the urinary system. It is strongly suggested to observe a low calorie diet and to drink at least two (2) litres of water before and after the treatment. This is an essential step in the fat elimination process.
Generally one cavitation treatment lasts 20 – 40 minutes, where a single part of the body is treated: abs and upper and lower body. Between one session and another 72 hours must pass, so the body can eliminate fat. The minimum suggested number of sessions is 6 to 14.
Each treatment is a 20 – 40 minute session with no pain, no cuts and amazing results. The number of treatments required is determined by how much fat needs to be taken off. Clients are measured before and after every treatment, and fat loss is usually visible within the first session.
What are the contraindications of Ultrasonic Cavitation?
We do not treat people with the following conditions:
• Contagious or infectious diseases and skin diseases Liver disease
• Kidney disease
• Heart problems (including pacemakers)
• Pregnancy and/or lactating OR during menses
• Undergone a transplant
• Cancer. Unless in remission for over 6 yrs.
• Contagious or infectious diseases or skin dieases
• Metal implants or electrical devices eg. metal hip joints, pacemakers, plates, pins, staples.
• Metal IUD’s (Intrauterine devices) Unless confirmed to be plastic such as the later models of the Mirena.
Always consult a doctor or therapist should you be uncertain.
Quadrupolar Radio Frequency Tightening & Firming
A new method to treat sagging skin, cellulite, localized adiposity and stretch marks. It is non-invasive, painless, fast and efficient. Reducing the volume of fat cells, stimulating collagen and fibroblasts. The treatment is repeated 2-3 times per area at a distance of at least 10 days of each other.
QPRF (quadrupolar radio frequency) is integrated with the most advanced technology which allows heating up of the tissue (dermis) using a rolling probe emitting RF waves. This helps to remove excess fat and toxins from the body though the sweat glands, enterohepatic circulation, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterohepatic_circulation and lymph system which helps to achieve the effect of dissolved fat. Inlaid diamond particles of different sizes also massage the skin with controlled technology.This changes the collagen formation and encourages the fibroblasts to migrate and lay down new collagen and remodel the dermis. As a result the skin looks tighter, and wrinkles are reduced This helps to give enhanced blood circulation, accelerated decomposition of fat, detoxification, cellulite reduction as well as improvement of tissue. We treat the FACE as well as the BODY with this technology.
Intense Pulsed Light Tissue Renewal
Intense pulse light (IPL) is an aesthetic treatment with immediate results based on the emission of light energy. A non-invasive, non-surgical treatment which helps erase years of skin damage, improving tone and texture, tightening skin and minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines and wrinkles. Tissue is treated every 3-4 weeks You experience cutting-edge laser technology which stimulates new collagen growth resulting in a smoother, more even, healthier skin.
Treatment of pigmentation on the face, chest and arms (the lesion darkens and crusts after the treatment and is naturally sloughed off the skin within two weeks), acne treatment, vascular lesion treatment (spider veins, couperose).
* This treatment cannot be performed on tanned skin.
Dermaplaning is known as an aesthetic trade secret in Los Angeles and New York. Dermaplaning (leveling the skin or simply blading), is an innovative form of manual exfoliation. Performed by our experienced aesthetician it involves the use of a sterile surgical blade held against taut skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked just like shaving. The result is smooth supple vibrant skin. Treatments typically last 30 minutes and are done monthly, which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days. Because we are not using chemicals, there is no irritation that is often associated with peels. Results are immediate. Furthermore, because the blade being used is small, dermaplaning can target specific problem areas more easily and skillfully than other procedures that use larger instruments and focus on the face as a whole.
Also, there’s no need for women to fear that the vellous hair on their face will grow back thicker after it’s been bladed. Unlike terminal hairs, which are thicker (men’s facial hair, leg hair), vellous hairs grow back the same after they’ve been removed, as the structure of the hair does not become damaged.
The immediate result is fresh, bright skin and a smoother look and feel to the skin. This treatment is recommended for all skin types with the exception of those who suffer from acne. This treatment is also safe and effective for pregnant or nursing women.
