Body Contouring: Choosing What's Best For You!

When it comes to health and nutrition it's hard to know where to start, even more so with Body Contouring. With so many different options, it all comes down to choosing what's best for your body type and what you want the outcome to be. Here's a few tips to help figure out what's best for you!



Body Wraps

Professionally done body wraps are a great way to jump-start your weight loss journey. Yes, you read that right! Paired with a nutritious diet and exercise, you can be on your way to better health and wellness. Ingredients like coffee, green tea, cocoa butter, brown sugar and sea salt seem to be more at home in your kitchen. The most trusted brands in the industry, use natural substances to help drain fluid, detoxify, control fat formation and its disposal, reduce cellulite, tone and moisturize the skin. Wraps can remove toxins, shrink fat cells, reduce inflammation, and deliver measurable inch loss.



Microcurrent

Microcurrent is natural to your body; it mimics your body's own electrical current, which is responsible for your involuntary muscles (breathing, heartbeat, etc). Your body welcomes Microcurrent treatment because the body is familiar with the Microcurrent process.


Microcurrent is a low level of electricity that triggers chemical reactions at a cellular level in order to enhance the production of natural collagen and elastin, provide circulatory benefits and re-educate the muscles of the face. The result is immediate firming, smoothing and re-hydrating to the skin, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Microcurrent lifts, sculpts and tightens, provides immediate results and has no downtime. It can relax and smooth wrinkles and lift sagging facial muscles. Additionally it is a secret weapon for alleviating acne. It is like yoga for your face.



Radio Frequency

Radio Frequency waves have a unique ability to penetrate into the body and target the required tissues without damaging the surrounding skin and tissues. These waves, after penetrating into the body, heat up collagen in the inner layers of skin. Collagen is a naturally occurring fibrous protein that is responsible for keeping skin tight and elastic. Heating the collagen leads to shrinkage and tightness of skin.


Radio Frequency Treatment (RFT) involves aiming high frequency waves on the cellulite area, where it penetrates into the skin and heats up fat deposits under the skin. The technician will keep heating the cellulite until it breaks up. Once this happens, the treated area is massaged in a bid to stimulate the lymphatic system which ultimately flushes out the fat cells. Besides accelerating collagen production, RFT also stimulates regeneration of skin cells, helping you to achieve new, youthful skin free of lumps.



Cavitation

The Ultrasound Cavitation procedure uses ultrasound and radio waves to break down fat cells and cellulite without affecting nearby organs and cells. The disrupted fat cells will then process through the digestive system naturally. Unlike surgical fat loss treatments, with Ultrasound Cavitation there’s no pain, scarring, bleeding and no risk of infection or downtime needed for recovery. During the procedure, a technician will apply a hand tool that transmits low-level ultrasonic waves to your skin. The compression-expansion impulses create micro-bubbles that enlarge, collide, and implode, producing shock waves that “leak” the content of fat cells in a process called cavitation. The waste material is then processed through the liver and released from the body through sweat and digestive elimination.


A one-hour treatment can cover a medium-sized area of your body, such as the belly, inner or outer thighs, buttocks or your back. Smaller areas such as the chin or upper arm can be treated together. Multiple treatments on the same area are recommended for maximum effectiveness. Extra belly fat, for example, may need 3-6 treatments, while larger areas will need more. Some results will be visible immediately, but the entire process can take several days to complete (peak results are usually seen within 72 hours of treatment). Results will depend on the condition of the eliminated fat, including how long it has existed and how dense it is.



Vacuum Therapy

Vacuum therapy is a noninvasive massaging technique that helps to lift your skin via a mechanical device equipped with suction cups. While it originally entered the market during the 1970s as a way to help treat burn scars, this treatment has evolved into a nonsurgical butt lift method.


Vacuum therapy is also known as vacuotherapy and depressomassage. Aside from purportedly offering similar effects to those of a surgical butt lift, the procedure is also sometimes used to mimic a traditional breast lift. Certain forms of vacuum therapy are also used for the treatment of cellulite.
