Summer body Prep: What you can do to get ready for summer!

This month, we’re starting to prepare you for the summer days that are sure to come all too quickly when you aren’t prepared for bathing suit season! Many of you are hitting the gym and sticking to your diet plans, but there are still those stubborn areas that won’t seem to budge, or that cellulite that never seems to get any better….this is where we come in! We have a number of body treatments with little to no downtime that are the perfect solution to helping you get prepared for summertime clothing.

We have two permanent fat reduction treatments that are great for treating stubborn fat that hasn’t gone away from all of your hard work at the gym and strict eating habits. Our Coolsculpting device works great on abdomen, flanks, and even thighs and upper back fat. Coolsculpting is based off the insight of Cryolipolysis®, the idea that cold can selectively affect and eliminate fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. Coolsculpting technology uses this controlled cooling to target and kill these fat cells, naturally eliminating them from the body in the weeks that follow. Liposonix is a non-surgical treatment that uses a high-intensity ultrasound to treat and eliminate those remaining fat cells. A Liposonix procedure uses a transducer to generate acoustic waves that travel through tissue. It penetrates through the skin layers into the targeted fat tissue without harming skin or surrounding tissue, allowing the waves to quickly heat and destroy fat.

If cellulite, rather than fat seems to be the issue for you, we have the newest and only device of it’s kind on the market! Cellfina is a minimally invasive in-office procedure that removes and improves cellulite. The Cellfina system then precisely treats the connective bands that create the dimpling by encouraging them to fray and then finally fully release, similar to a rubber band under tension.  Once released the treated skin bounces back to smooth itself out, with results seen in as little as three days post procedure.  The procedure only takes about an hour to perform, treating about 25 dimples.

If you’re interested in learning more about all or any of these device, please join us for our lunchtime event on February 17th from 12pm-1pm featuring our two treatments for fat reduction in those stubborn diet-resistant areas; the abdomen, flanks and thighs. We will provide an overview of both treatments and help you determine which one is right for you! Also added to our body treatments is Cellfina, our newest treatment for cellulite! We will discuss this latest innovation too! Event attendees will receive discounts on CoolSculpting and Liposonix. Light refreshments will be served. Seating is very limited.
