Clearlift works by using laser light and transforming it into acoustic sound waves. The sound waves create thousands of microscopic perforations and heats beneath the top layer of the dermis. The top layer of skin remains in tact. This allows the skin to heal rapidly and encourages the production of collagen, firming and smoothing the complexion. To remodel collagen a series of 6 treatment spaced every two weeks apart is recommended. If you have been doing other firming treatments we offer, you may want to maintain with the Clearlift. Allow about 45 min for each treatment. Full face treatment - $400 Neck treatment - $200 Full face & neck - $450 The picture is before and after 6 treatments
Micro-needling is a treatment using an electronic pen shaped device, studded with very fine needles that penetrate beneath the skins surface to promote collagen fiber production, elasticity, and blood flow to the treated area. The process creates tiny wounds, breaking down old scar tissue and stimulating skin cells. Skin plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, large pores, hyper-pigmentation. We use stem cell therapy with each micro-needling treatment. It increases the skin's ability to repair and firm itself. There is no downtime or discomfort.
The picture above is before and after two treatments. Kybella – tighten and rid yourself of that double chin! This is how Kybella works. Your liver creates an enzyme that gets stored in your gall bladder. When you eat fatty foods, your gall bladder releases that enzyme in order to digest the fatty food. So,it is that enzyme that gets injected into your chin area. The enzyme then digests your fat cells in your chin line. You will get immediately swollen and sore. You feel a burning sensation, which is your fat cells being digested. It does take two months for your lymphatic system to remove the digested fat from your body. It really does take that long to see the swelling subside completely. The injections are quick, you really don't feel them. However, immediately after you will burn. It’s not intolerable, icing really helps. Once fat is gone, it’s gone. This is not something you need to do repeatedly.

IPL, short for intense pulsed light, is a popular treatment that is best-known for its ability to treat vascular conditions like broken capillaries ("spider veins") and the brown spots or "age spots" caused by sun damage. IPL also stimulates the production of collagen, which plumps up the skin and gives you a fresher look. IPL uses short blasts of a polychromatic, high-intensity light to penetrate just below the skin's surface, damaging either the melanin that makes up brown "age spots" or the blood vessels that create broken capillaries. The skin repairs the damage, leaving you with a more even skin tone. IPL is also touted as a way to boost collagen and elastin. It generally takes a series of treatments to see the best results, perhaps three to six treatments, usually a month apart. Our new Alma IPL does not need numbing and is virtually pain free. This new generation is much more comfortable than the previous.

The combination of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulse catalyzes an increase in the production of collagen and elastin fibers, as well as new dermal blood vessels. For the face this results in healthy looking, smoother skin with improved elasticity and texture. What are the immediate results following a Venus Freeze treatment? When collagen fibers in the skin are exposed to heat (as during a treatment), their structure is modified and they immediately contract, making the skin tighter. This effect is noticeable upon completion of the first treatment. How many treatments are required to get good clinical results? Generally, the recommended number of treatment sessions is 6-8. However, the number of treatments may vary depending on the client’s characteristics. Do I need maintenance treatments? One treatment every two – three months are recommended to maintain results. How effective is the magnetic pulse component of the Venus Freeze and what is the scientific evidence to support it? It is well documented that magnetic pulse has a positive effect on wound and bone healing, creation of new small blood vessels (angiogenesis) and collagen production. These clinical effects have been evident in many clinical trials. Furthermore, this non-invasive therapy was approved by the FDA as a safe and effective technology for medical use. The (MP)² uses this technology to dramatically improve skin appearance, via inducement of angiogenesis and collagen production. What is the difference between the Venus Freeze MP(2) technology and other RF technology? Other Radio Frequency technologies necessitate the use of active cooling to avoid skin burns. Venus Freeze’s hand-pieces deploy much less power, since its poles work very efficiently and generate focused and homogenous heat with no need of cooling aid and no risk of skin burns. How does the MP(2) and the RF components of the Venus Freeze work together? The (MP)² induces the production of collagen via two synergistic mechanisms — the MP component induces the proliferation of fibroblast, who in turn produce collagen, and the RF component creates a controlled thermal damage, and initiates a wound-healing process that involves production of collagen. The result is a significant increase in collagen production.

The Arasys inch-loss system is like doing exercise without having to go through the hassle of actually doing it. Past devices that claimed to stimulate muscles used electrical current to jerk and twitch them. The Arasys inch-loss system does not target the muscles themselves but the nerves that control the muscles. Using wave forms that resonate your brain’s own bio-electric signal, your body mimics the clean contraction you get during exercise. The benefit of Arasys is that your muscles don’t become overstressed because Arasys burns fat without depleting glucose. Afterwards, your muscles are not sore or fatigued. A 17-minute Arasys treatment has the same effect as 300 sit-ups and 400 buttock raises. Typical inch loss can range from 2-6 inches. The Arasys system also helps speed your metabolism, restores elasticity of your connective tissue, increases oxygenation and blood circulation, reduces cellulite, builds muscles, and boosts performance. Arasys has also been used to alleviate muscle pain and atrophy. Created by Gerry Pollock, co-inventor of the pacemaker, the Arasys was originally designed to help those with Multiple Sclerosis. It proved so effective at tightening skin that all kinds of medical professionals use the Arasys inch-loss system for various clinical purposes: medical spas for inch loss and cellulite removal, gynecologists to tighten abs after pregnancy, and plastic surgeons can use it to tighten skin after a liposuction. Arasys inch-loss system is safe, non-invasive, with no trauma on the muscles, and zero side effects.

The Venus Freeze is used on the body at higher temperatures than on the face. The RF at higher temperatures induces lipolysis(think busting up your fat cells and releasing them into your blood stream). A cellulite and circumferential reduction may also be seen usually following the 3rd treatment. How many treatments are required to get good clinical results? Generally, the recommended number of treatment sessions is 8-10 for the body. However, the number of treatments may vary depending on the client’s characteristics. What is its effect on the fat cell? (MP)², magnetic pulses used with the radio frequency, raises the temperature of the treated area, and induces lipolysis — enzyme-mediated breakdown of triglycerides into glycerol and free fatty acids. These fatty acids pass from the fat cell into the blood stream, and the volume of the cell is reduced. The fatty acids may be metabolized by various cells in the body, or restored again as triglycerides in fat cells. Simply put, inducing lipolsis destroys your fat cells and releases them into the blood stream. What is the difference between the Venus Freeze MP(2) technology and other RF technology? Other Radio Frequency technologies necessitate the use of active cooling to avoid skin burns. Venus Freeze’s hand-pieces deploy much less power, since its poles work very efficiently and generate focused and homogenous heat with no need of cooling aid and no risk of skin burns.
