What is VelaShape?

VelaShape® is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction.  VelaShape enables you to safely achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body making you look and feel more youthful. VelaShape provides dramatic results without downtime or significant discomfort.

Which areas can be treated with VelaShape?

Cellulite & fat reduction treatment areas could be on the neck (under chin), arms, thighs, buttocks, flank and abdomen. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime.

What VelaShape does?

The technology

VelaShape technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum, which cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibers. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulates the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localized reduction in skin laxity, body volume, and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.

What do I expect from VelaShape treatments?
  • Gradual smoothing of skin’s surface with a noticeable reduction in cellulite
  • Circumferential reduction, with noticeable reshaping of the treated area
What is the VelaShape procedure like?

Most patients find VelaShape comfortable and describe the treatment as feeling like a warm deep-tissue massage. The treatment parameters are easily adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment experience. It is normal to experience a warm sensation for a few hours after your treatment. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last a few hours post treatment, and skin may appear pink for several hours.

Fat Cavitation

Do you have tough areas of fat that just won’t go away? Love Handles? We can help!

What is Ultrasound Cavitation?

raleigh fat reductionUltrasound Cavitation is a relatively new aesthetic treatment. Using leading edge technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system. Generally one fat cavitation treatment lasts 25 – 30 minutes where a single part of the body is treated. 72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat. The minimum suggested number of fat cavitation sessions is between 6 and 10.
Which are the areas where treatment is more effective? This is a great upgrade to Coolsculpting for more results.

All those areas with localized fat: thighs, abdomen, flanks, and buttocks are the most popular but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body.

How does Ultrasound Cavitation work?

Our therapist will apply a specially designed hand piece to your skin. The hand piece will then transmit low level ultrasonic waves which consist of compression – expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. This back and forth cycle then causes an infinite quantity of micro-cavities or micro-bubbles that gradually enlarge. This progressive enlargement finishes as micro-bubbles start to collide and implode, producing shock waves that favor emulsification and elimination of fat tissues (this phenomena is called “cavitation”). The liquid is then easily vacuumed out from the body using the lymphatic and urinary system.

Is ultrasound cavitation painful and safe?

No, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable. This treatment is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia – it’s non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or the need for any post-operative course) and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment.

Can you lose weight with ultrasonic cavitation?

Cavitation is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, the famous “love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise. Treatments remove cellulite preventing fat cells from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system.

Fat is a solid substance right? How can it be eliminated through the urine?

Because ultrasound cavitation causes an emulsification of fat, converting it into a substance easy to eliminate through the urinary and the lymphatic system.

What do I need to do before my treatments?

We recommend a low calorie diet and drink at least 1.5 litres of water before and after the session. Drinking water is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat. Regular exercise such as walking or other aerobic activities should also be maintained in order to help the system to naturally process the fat after the treatment.

Number of treatments and treatment frequency for each area?

• Ultrasound Cavitation: 6–10 treatments spaced 1-2 weeks apart per specific area

Advantages over other treatments:

• Non invasive treatment
• No need for hospitalization nor anesthesia
• No scars nor long term marking of the skin
• Very little discomfort
• Elimination of the fat through a natural process
• 20-60 min per session
• Affordable

Preparation before each treatment:

Drink at least 1.5 to 2 litters of water a day a week before your treatment. Choose an area you wanted to treat and start moisturizing that area thoroughly everyday and at night. Hydration will help make the treatment a lot more successful.

Laser Lipolysis

Laser Lipo  is the latest in laser lipolysis, offering you a way to achieve inch loss and body contouring with no pain, no needles and no down time.

How does it work?
 The Laser Lipo emits low levels of laser energy, which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releasing them though channels in the cell membranes. The fatty acids and glycerol are then transported around the body to the tissues that will use them during metabolism to create energy. This process of fatty acid release is a natural response of the body when the body needs to used stored energy reserves, thus Laser Lipo  is not creating any unnatural reaction in the body nor does it affect or damage any surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves. A period of exercise post treatment will ensure the complete metabolism and thus elimination from the body of the freed fatty acids.

Why Laser Lipo?
The Laser Lipo   system has many advantages over other similar systems. Here are just a few!

Clinically proven
Independent clincal studies have shown Laser Lipo to be, in some cases, comparable to results achieved by liposuction. Ultrasound imagery shows up to 30% reduction in the fat layer depth after just one treatment.

Additional treatments Such as Infrared Body Wraps improve results further. Results can be seen immediately after each treatment as the fat cell contents are released. Light exercise post treatment can accelerate the removal of the released fat.

Safe and Painless
Laser Lipo uses low levels of visible red laser light to create a safe and painless bio-stimulation effect in the targeted fat tissue. This stimulation is of the normal chemical pathways which the body uses to free up energy resources when required, so Laser Lipo   does not produce any abnormal effects in the body or damage body tissue such as cells, blood vessels or neighboring nerves or vital organs. The treatment can be performed on all skin types and body areas where unwanted fat is stored and you can return to normal activity immediately after treatment.

Immediate results
Results can be seen immediately after treatment. Typically a 2-4cm loss in abdomen circumference can be achieved with every treatment. A course of 8 treatments is recommended over 4 weeks with 2 treatments per week.

Targeted fat reduction
Laser Lipo   can target fat reduction in specific problem area. By positioning the laser pads on the target area such as chin, upper arms, abdomen or thighs fat can be broken down and removed specifically from that area. This is a big advantage over diet and exercise which can reduce overall body fat but not shape individual areas.

Professional EMS Toning and Slimming machine

EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) technology. EMS enables natural exercise safely and effortlessly to create slenderness, inch loss, firmness and strength. The treatment also stimulates the body’s natural fat burning and toning process helping to give you a body that is not only lean and firm but healthy too! With EMS we can target specific areas of the body (working several areas at one time) to get the results that you want. The stimulation from the electrical current also increase circulation of the skin.  Thereby improving texture and tone as well as reducing the appearance of cellulite.

HISTORY OF EMS TECHNOLOGY

EMS technology has been used for years. It was initially developed for NASA to be used by astronauts so they would not suffer from muscle dystrophy while in space. Since then, European Olympic teams have used the technology to enhance performance when training their athletes. Professional athletes, body builders, and many in the health and beauty industry have recognized its proven ability to strengthen muscles and create results with slimming and toning.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ’S)

Q: Does it really work?
A: Try EMS once and you will know it works! You feel your muscles contracting and exercising during the session for measurable results.

Q: How many inches will I lose?
A: After a 10 session abdominal package, you weight remains constant, one can expect a loss that varies between 1/2” – 2” off the rib cage, off the abdomen, and off the waist area, factoring in diet and lifestyle.  Accordingly, one can lose up to 2 pant sizes in 20 sessions.

Q: What does it feel like?
A: At no time will you will feel pain. It is a non-invasive treatment that may feel relaxing to some. You will feel a tingling sensation at the beginning of the treatments, which is the same sensation one might feel during a muscle rehabilitation session with a physiotherapist, then you will feel contraction of the targeted muscles.

Q: How often should I come for a treatment?
A: Per area, three times a week is ideal. Twice a week is a minimum to get results.

Q: How many areas can I target in a single session?
A: A client may choose to do two areas during a visit. Depending on the client’s goal, the technician may suggest to focus on one area for the optimal results of the problem region.

Q: How long do the effects last?
A: When you activate your muscles with normal exercise you are usually only able to access about 50% to 60% of your muscle fibres, unless you are a trained athlete. With SlimWave, you exercise 100% of your muscle fibres in targeted area so the effects should typically last you considerably longer than active exercise. If your weight remains constant, the effects will last 6-8 months. If you integrate regular exercise and a healthy diet to your routine, the results can last indefinitely.

Q: Is the electro muscle stimulation (EMS) treatment safe?
A: There are no negative side effects.

Q: Will my muscles ache after the treatment as they do after a strenuous gym workout?
A: The EMS treatment does not require glucose which is normally utilized during exercise. This is an important benefit because the body burns surrounding fat cells without decreasing glucose levels. This prevents build-up of lactic acid which normally causes the pain after an intense workout.

Q: Should I do anything after I finish a session?
A: In order to enhance the lymphatic drainage process, which is stimulated when the muscles contract and relax, you are encouraged to drink a glass of water before a session and drink several glasses after a session to assist your body with elimination of toxins.

Q: I just had a baby. Can EMS get my stomach back into shape?
A: There is no faster or easier method of correcting the stretched tummy muscles after childbirth.  You can start treatments six weeks after childbirth or six months after a caesarean section. *

Q: I am over 50 and have very poor muscle tone. Can EMS help?
A: Yes! Age is no barrier and where there is more room for improvement the results seem even more dramatic, when complemented by a sensible diet and regular exercise, you will see toning and quick and visible inch loss. In fact, we have had individuals over the age of 70 experience the benefits of EMS treatments.

Q: Can SlimWave help me get into shape?
A: Men like to keep in shape as much as women. EMS is often used by men to pull in their stomachs and dramatically improve their physiques. EMS sessions are an enjoyable injury-free alternative, or complement to traditional exercise and sport.

Q: Can EMS help me lose weight?
A: It’s well known that muscle consumes far more calories per day than fat. If you build more muscle, then your calorie consumption goes up and you obtain a proportionate weight loss, provided that your eating habits remain the same. If you go on a diet at the same time carrying out the EMS treatment program, you will lose weight. Add a regular exercise program (walking 30 minutes briskly each day) and the results will be even greater.

Whole Body Vibration Platform

vibration platform.jpg

RIDING A WAVE OF ENERGY

When you stand or place other parts of your body on a moving vibration platform, the repetitive upward movement of the platform sends pulses of kinetic energy up through your body. You control the strength of these energy waves using the machine’s control panel.

As each wave moves up through your body some of the energy is absorbed by the tissues of your body and is converted to heat. Muscles and joints feel and operate better when they are warm. Whole Body Vibration has been proven to create a warming effect in muscles and joints faster and easier than other types of exercise.

The upward movement of the platform also causes movement in the joints of your body which has a mobilizing effect and causes the muscles and tissues surrounding the joints to stretch and vibrate.

MUSCLE REFLEXES

Your brain is constantly monitoring the position of your joints and will increase muscle activation in an attempt to stabilize your posture when there is a risk of you becoming unbalanced.

Further, if the stretching and vibration of tissues is sufficient, microscopic sensors inside your body detects these changes and quickly activate reflexes that cause the muscles to contract, keeping joints and soft tissues protected from excessive movement. The strength of muscle contraction depends on the strength of the energy pulse coming up from the platform and the health of your nerves and muscles.

WARMED UP AND READY

Repetitive pulses of sufficient energy cause rhythmic muscle contractions. In a short time, the cumulative effect of exercising warms and mobilizes the joints and muscles as well as the increased circulation caused by muscle pumping, leaves you with a pleasant feeling, makes movement easier and prepares the body for working optimally.

EFFECTS

By combining Ultra Cavitation or LipoLaser with the whole body vibration platform, we are insuring that you are getting some exercise while helping the impurities from your shrunken fat cells into your system for easier flushing. The combination of Ultra Cavitation or LipoLaser with the whole body vibration platform has proven to be more effective than just Ultra Cavitation or LipoLaser on its own.
