ACOUSTIC SHOCK WAVE
The exfoliation and suctioning disrupts the skin’s surface causing cell division. As the skin cells divide fibroblast activity is stimulated leading to collagen production, which leads to thicker, firmer skin. Human skin sloughs off at a slower rate with age, so the exfoliation of several layers of the stratum corneum (surface skin layers) leaves skin fresh and radiant. Microdermabrasion is effective to decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars, which helps to even out the texture.
COOLSCULPTING WITH CRYOLIPOLYSIS
Cryolipolysis is a modern focused fat reduction method. It was developed by Harvard scientists. Its principle relies on controlled cooling for non-invasive local reduction of fat deposits to reshape body contours. The exposure to cooling causes fat cell death without damage to the overlying skin. The procedure is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction. CoolSculptor reduces fat by cold cooling of the fat in a the treated area to approximately -5 Cº. As fat does not react well to cold, the fat cells loose its composition and are eliminated by the body in a natural way by the lymphatic system. This process is completely safe and efficient. The treatment is combined with the vacuum massage program. At the same time the vacuum handle pulls the fat against the freezing plates, the pull is made with a dynamic wave that allows a better efficiency. This dynamic wave stimulates the area to allow a better flow and distribution of fat and blood. This functionality works in a similar way, allowing the fat to be exposed to the cooling panels.A healthy diet and exercise are crucial complement of the therapy. Regular exercise during this period helps to optimise the fat elimination. Cryolipolysis affects only fat cells, since they are more sensitive to cold than other cells. The fat is eliminated without any damage to the skin, muscles and nerves.
Electroporation, which is the underlying technology, uses short modulated pulses of a low current to create transient aqueous pores in the skin. This application of an electrical pulse momentarily disrupts the cell membrane, allowing the entry of product. When the pulse ceases, the membrane returns to its original structure, leaving product that has been penetrated into the interior of the cell in place. The effect lasts for a few seconds, therefore allowing the introduction of product. This dramatically increases skin permeability.This process also stimulates your skin to enable muscle toning, draining of liquids from intercellular space (helps with puffiness), and the production of new collagen and elastin. It means that whatever substance is used for the treatment of your skin will be much more effective! Your skin will feel ‘tight’, and subtly lifted. This ‘channel, or door’ that is created for just a few seconds is allowing whatever we are sending down into that deeper layer (where things ‘happen’ at a cellular level) to create real changes in the skin. Because of the depth it can go and when the door or channel closes, it stays down there continuing to make positive, corrective changes. Advantages include no pain or risk of injection track, controlled depth of the substance injection without affecting the vessels or the products transfer into the bloodstream and penetration of the substance is above 90%.
PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL WITH IPL / SHR
IPL: Intense Pulse Light – high energy light directed at the hair follicles. IPL employs short impulses with high energy. The energy is transported to the hair root through melanin, where warmth of 65-72° Celsius is produced. Energy reaches the root of the hair follicle solely through melanin.SHR: Super Hair Removal – new generation hair removal system – gradual heating – lower energy, higher frequency. The hair melanin, as well as the tissue of the stem cells, is heated with lower energy at a slower pace and over a longer period of time (90 seconds) to a comfortable temperature of 45° Celsius. It is practically painless and even lighter and finer hair can be treated.
The treatment allows to remove hair from all parts of the body (underarms, face, bikini area, legs). It does not damage surrounding tissue and can cope with hair of almost any thickness and color.
PRESSOTHERAPY – LYMPHATIC DREINAGE
RADIO FREQUENCY TREATMENT
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness as connective tissue begins to break down. Multi-polar RF uses waves of different frequencies to create heat which penetrates several levels of fat and skin cells.The treatment is non-surgical tightening of the early signs of loose or sagging skin; ideal for those who don’t want a surgical procedure. It is commonly used to treat the forehead, under the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, jaw line, and neck.
Technically speaking, radio frequency is the number of oscillations (or waves) per second of the electric and magnetic fields within the radio waves portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.
A RF device is placed on the skin and is used in the problem areas for 15 to 30 minutes. When the waves reach the tissue where collagen fibers are embedded, the heating process causes them to quickly contract. The RF energy is able to penetrate deep into the skin and affect the deeper dermis and subcutaneous layers, causing tightening and improvements to the underlying tissue structure. At the same time, the increase in temperature is boosting the metabolism of fibroblasts, resulting in a smoother and younger looking complexion.
