What is Cavitation?
Ultrasonic cavitation is a method used to correct excessive local fat deposits through ultrasonic waves over fat tissue. The essence of cavitation methodology for cellulite correction and abolition of excessive fat deposits consists in low-frequency ultrasound eliminating fat. An important condition when working with cavitation methods is performing compulsory lymphatic drainage after a procedure through any method: pressure therapy, vacuum massage, or classical lymphatic drainage massage.
BENEFITS OF CAVIATION
Ultrasound cavitation can be used on any area of the body that fosters extra fat and weight. The treatment can be applied almost anywhere from smaller areas (like chins) to larger areas (such as thighs, stomach, back, or buttocks). It is also not invasive meaning no surgical procedures are performed and only powerful, yet safe and effective waves are emitted to skin causing fat to burn and patients to look slimmer. Furthermore, surrounding tissues are left unharmed and pain is negligible. Cavitation is virtually risk-free as it has been approved for many medical procedures in addition to cosmetic procedures, and only lasts an hour on average! Results are visible right after or just days after one treatment and several treatments can help attain amazing results.
HOW CAVITATION WORKS
It has been found experimentally that the effects of cavitation appear in fat cells under the influence of low-frequency ultrasound between 37 and 42 kHz. Through this, a bubble collapse occurs in fat tissue and a bulk of energy is released. The hydrodynamic push (a sort of micro-explosion) occurs under the bubble collapse in fat tissue. These micro-explosions damage the cellular membranes of adipocytes (membranes of cells composed mainly of fat) as a result of its strong tension. Release of triglycerides that make up the fat cells are removed from intracellular space via natural metabolic processes, while other cells and tissues (muscular fibers, epidermal cells, endothelium of muscles, etc.) are left completely undamaged.
Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment is a modern technology used for non-surgical skin tightening on early signs of loose or sagging skin. It is an electrical current technology with a frequency range of 0.1 to 5 MHz. Pure RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity through facial tightening, and it is best suited for patients with mild to moderate facial tissue sagging. By applying RF energy, which conducts current to mimic electrical circuits to the skin, any resistance encountered by the energy flow will produce heat at the site of maximum resistance. Via this treatment, radio waves penetrate the patient’s outer skin layers, delivering heat energy to the deep dermal layers. This energy stimulates collagen production and that, in turn, triggers tissue contraction. The overall result is tighter, brighter skin, and a significant reduction in sags and wrinkles.
BENEFITS OF RF
Radiofreqency works painlessly and without any downtime. It rejuvenates skin, reduces the look of cellulite, helps stretch marks, removes fat, and improves the demeanor of wrinkles and fine lines.
Multipolar Radiofreqency tightens tissue and delivers energy into different depths of the skin with varying patterns and paths. Used in conjunction with Ultrasound results are more defined.
HOW RF WORKS
This energy slowly heats up the dermis and encourages collagen synthesis which makes collagen fibers sturdier and healthier. This reverses the visible effects of aging to a degree since aging makes collagen weaker (creating wrinkles and other imperfections). It works by using algorithms to control how electrodes apply currents to individual fat layers, making results clear after just one treatment. Three electrodes emit RF energy directly onto a localized spot and uses much less energy than other RF methods, allowing for a comfortable feeling during treatment.
The primary indication for laser lipolysis is body contouring through the liquefaction of localized deposits as well as skin tightening via neocollagenesis. Laser lipolysis is indicated for any location that demonstrates unwanted fatty tissue and modest skin laxity. These include the submental area, upper arms, abdomen, back hips, inner thighs, outer thighs, knees, calves, and ankles. Patients with irregularities or uneven areas after a previous liposuction or other surgical procedures, such as abdominoplasties, are excellent candidates. For more information visit the link below.
A HydraFacial is a facial treatment using a patented device to deliver exfoliation, cleansing, extraction, and hydration to the face. This system uses a vortex swirling action to deliver hydration and to remove dead skin, dirt, debris, and impurities while cleaning and soothing your skin.
HydraFacial includes 4 facial treatments rolled into one session: cleansing and exfoliating, a gentle chemical peel, vacuum suction extraction, and a hydrating serum. These steps are delivered using a patented HydraFacial device (which looks like a large rolling cart with hoses and a wand with detachable heads). Unlike traditional facial treatments that can have different effects depending on your skin type and aesthetician, the HydraFacial provides consistent results and can be used on all skin types.
The cleansing, exfoliation, chemical peel, collagen building, and facial muscle relaxing provided by a HydraFacial helps treat many of the beauty issues individuals experience today, including large pores, wrinkles, breakouts, and thinning skin.
HydraFacial treatments are often used in conjunction with LED light therapy. Blue light can help with acne while red light can help reduce the visibility of wrinkles.
What Happens During a HydraFacial Treatment?
A HydraFacial treatment takes on average 30 minutes. If this is your first HydraFacial appointment, here’s what to expect
1 – Cleansing & Exfoliation
The first step during your HydraFacial is cleansing and exfoliation. Using a vortex cleansing and hydra peel tip, your aesthetician will use the HydraFacial wand to gently cleanse and exfoliate the skin. This removes dead skin cells and sebum while gently opening your pores. Some people describe it like having a revolving electric toothbrush gently pressed to your skin.
2 – Chemical Peel
Next, your aesthetician will change the tip on the wand to deliver a gentle chemical peel. Unlike other chemical peels that are often irritating or painful and leave your skin red for hours or days, HydraFacials use a non-irritating mix of salicylic and glycolic acids for a gentle yet effective peel. The purpose of this step is to loosen deep pore debris.
3 – Extraction
The third step in a HydraFacial is extraction. This is where the device will use strong, painless vortex vacuum suction to remove blackheads and impurities from your pores. These impurities collect in a cup to be discarded.
4 – Hydrating Serum
Lastly, your aesthetician will use the HydraFacial wand to apply a soothing proprietary anti-oxidative and hydrating serum with peptides and other beneficial nutrients. This helps to detoxify, rejuvenate, and hydrate the skin.
After your treatment is complete, your aesthetician may also augment the service with additional procedures such as light therapy or fills. HydraFacials are gentle enough that you may complete other treatments during your visit.
How Often Should I Get a HydraFacial?
If you haven’t had a facial or hydra-care routine in the past, it can be beneficial to start with 2-4 HydraFacials a month for about 3 months. Once you’ve established a better baseline for facial skin health, you can benefit from a once-a-month appointment.
What are the Benefits of HydraFacials?
HydraFacials are a gentle yet effective alternative to harsher facial treatments. Here are some of the reasons people love this spa treatment:
-Works on all skin types. Whether you have sensitive skin or acne, dry or oily skin, the HydraFacial will work for you.
Consistent outcomes. Since much of the treatment is controlled by the HydraFacial technology, you can achieve a consistently high-quality treatment every time.
-No downtime. Another reason people love the HydraFacial is that there is no downtime. You can even apply makeup that same day if you’d like to—though most people enjoy the glow from the treatment too much to cover it up.
Immediate results. Because the treatment is noninvasive, you can see positive results right away. We even recommend it before weddings or events for a luminous, healthy glow.
