Whether you are 26 or 62, you want to look your best when vacationing, particularly in the warmer months when we naturally show more skin. With the plethora of options available to keep us healthy and boost our natural glow, there is no reason not to feel good when your toes hit the sand. Here are some of our most popular treatments for the summer season!
• Body FX- First, we have to say, “WOW….”. We have worked with body contouring treatments before, but never have we seen one that can bring about such amazing changes for stubborn tummies, saddlebags, knees and flanks. Body FX works with radio frequency to permanently break down the top 30% of the fat layer and tighten the skin in the area treated. The fat cell that has been destroyed will release its contents, which are removed by the body as normal waste. The treatment requires eight weekly visits with our licensed aestheticians that will take about 40 minutes. Body FX may be used to treat multiple areas at one time. An area is comprised of the size of four hands. We have been awed by the results we have seen, from the 58 year old who lost two and a half inches from her stubborn upper abdomen area, to the body builder who went from a Stage 3 to a Stage 1 cellulite and lost inches from her saddle bag area. The best news is that the result may be maintained by simply having a couple of single maintenance sessions per year. We have never seen this effective type of body contouring with no downtime and we couldn’t be more excited! Our special summer gift to you- purchase one area of Body FX, get the second area free!
• Diolaze Laser Hair Removal- We are so excited to offer this “first of its kind” laser hair removal system. The Diolaze combines speed, efficiency and comfort to deliver the safest and most effective experiences of its kind. The built in scanning system and safe guards ensure skin will not be overtreated. The smart design system reduces the traditional treatment time for large areas, like backs and legs, from 60 minutes to 20 minutes. For the average person, Diolaze requires approximately 6-8 treatments once every two weeks for complete and permanent hair removal, which equals out to a three to four month process. After only five procedures, typical patients show 85% permanent hair reduction. The Diolaze system has the ability to permanently reduce hair growth and treat an entire range of skin colors and hair types, satisfying both men and women of a variety of ethnicities and races. As with any hair removal technology the best and longest lasting results are achieved in patients with dark hair and lighter skin types. Wouldn’t you love to lose the razor?
• Kybella- Get “selfie” ready with this amazing new treatment that treats the dreaded double chin. Kybella will have you looking thinner and more lifted after two to four treatments. The added bonus is that you will actually notice a lifting and tightening effect in the jaw line and lower face. After a health history review for your safety, our nurses will numb the area and inject the solution into the fatty under chin tissue. Typically, clients report minimal discomfort and no real downtime. You will notice some swelling for a couple of days and may have numbness or firmness for a bit, but then, voila, your have the chin of your dreams. The best part is that the result is permanent!! Get those selfie sticks loaded and ready! Enjoy $100 off your Kybella treatment or $200 off your Kybella and Botox treatment!
