BodyFX

Discover a superior solution to improve the appearance of cellulite, reduce dimpled skin, loss of elasticity on the abdomen, love handles, hips, thighs AND other areas that require fat reduction.

BodyFX is the first, and only, technology which not only uses advanced, focused radio-frequency energy to target fat specifically, but also tightens the collagen and dermis. The result is not just a reduction in fat, but also a remodeling and tightening of the skin – which is everyone’s dream goal for body sculpting.

What is BodyFX?

BodyFX is a new, long lasting, non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite. BodyFX will reshape your body to provide a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. BodyFX is a perfect solution to get rid of your mummy tummy or muffin top, and improve your general body contour.

How does BoxyFX work?

BodyFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio- frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body shaping results.

How safe is the treatment?

A series of RF energy is delivered by a succession of pulses at 1 million cycles per second. While this may sound intense, it is very safe. To maximize comfort, the body’s temperature will be constantly monitored, with ongoing accurate feedback of the skin’s temperature. This thermal monitoring provides the utmost in temperature control.

Does it hurt?

Most users find BodyFX comfortable. During treatment you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as the radio- frequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat.

How many sessions are requires?

It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over a four to eight week period. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments with the skin’€™s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately.

What kind of post procedure care is requires?

There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFX. It can be a lunch time procedure. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from their regular activities.

 

Forma Plus

A safe and comfortable non-surgical solution to refine and reverse skin laxity.

Safe, comfortable and effective skin tightening on just about any body area including arms, thighs, knees, abdomens, love handles and anywhere else patients can imagine.

What is Plus?

Plus uses fractionated radio-frequency energy to stimulate collagen production for body remodeling. After Plus treatments you can achieve a more youthful and toned skin contour making your body appear smoother, sexier and younger.

Is Plus for me?

Plus is recommended for individuals who are looking for a non-invasive skin treatment to address targeted areas that require contraction. Plus can be used to reduce texture irregularities in lax skin to provide a lifted appearance. Plus is safe and can be used on all skin types and tones.

What results will I see and feel?

During treatment most patients will feel a heat sensation and feel tighter. Over time patients typically notice a reduction in the folds of their skin leading to a smoother contour of the body. Textural irregularities will even out and sagging skin will appear more toned.

How does Plus work?

Plus was created and based on the development and clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. (Acquire, Control and Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology targets deep within the skin to ensure that no areas are under, or over-treated, thereby maximizing results and providing consistent outcomes.

What areas can be treated?

Plus can be used on parts of the body that may need contraction after the effects of weight gain/loss or general aging. Most common areas of treatment include the abdomen, arms (bat wings), inner thighs, outer thighs, back fat and knees.

Plus is essentially painless and has no downtime. Plus feels like a hot stone massage. After a session, patients may see slight redness in the treated area, which will lessen within a few hours. All patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment.

How many sessions are required?

Typically, weekly sessions are recommended over a six to eight week period. Individuals with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. Scheduling should be based on a pre-evaluation. Best results will be noticed over time or a series of treatments.

How does Forma work?

Forma was developed based on the clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. (Acquire, Control, Extend) technology. A.C.E. technology uses radio-frequency energy to target deep layers of the skin, with no area being under or over treated. This ensures maximum and consistent results.

Forma is an essentially painless procedure with no downtime due to its precise technology and deep-layer targeting of the skin. Slight redness in the treatment area is common post- procedure, which subsides within a few hours.

What is Fractotal Facial?

Many Forma patients will combine Forma with Fractora Resurfacing and Lumecca Photofacial for a treatment series called FracTotal Facial. FracTotal Facial is the ultimate skin renovation treatment that addresses all in-demand facial concerns including skin laxity, uneven skin tone, uneven skin texture, wrinkles and pigmentation.

 

Fractora

Discover a superior solution to decrease wrinkles, improve skin complexion, reduce skin irregularities and provide a healthier younger-looking you – all in one session.

Fractora achieves full-scale treatment depths with tunable fractional energy to improve superficial skin tone problems (photo damage) to deep textural concerns (wrinkles, acne scarring and skin contraction).

What is Fractora?

Fractora skin treatment is a fractional rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment that reduces wrinkles to slow the effects of aging and restore skin to its youthful appearance. Fractora lets you look and feel younger.

What areas can be treated?

Fractora can be used on areas that can benefit from skin renewal. The most commonly treated areas include: lower eyelid, upper eyelid, smile lines, forehead, cheeks, mouth and neck. Face and body areas that exhibit wrinkles, discoloration or acne scarring are suitable for treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on your Fractora treatment regime you can expect to have between 1-6 sessions.

How quickly will I see results?

Visible results can be seen immediately, but typically after two weeks the most noticeable results appear. Improvements continue up to three months after treatment.

What is the benefit of fractionated energy?

Fractionated RF energy found in Fractora is a scientifically proven method that reduces wrinkles. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro-pins to resurface and restore the skin, providing exceptional results with almost no patient downtime.

What is the benefit of RF energy?

RF energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled way to revitalize the collagen. Fractora treatment will improve skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Can this be used in combination with other treatments?

Yes, Fractora can be used in the same treatment session, or a few days after other treatments. Fractora can also be combined with additional energy treatments or injectables to achieve a more extensive full face result, called a FracTotal Facial.

When can I put make-up on after treatment?

Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week depending on treatment parameters.

What kind of post procedure care is required?

Patients should moisturize the treatment area and avoid direct sun exposure. It is also recommended that patients use a good, broad spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing their future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles and slow the aging process.

 

Lumecca

Discover a superior solution to improve skin complexion, reduce skin irregularities and look years younger.

One treatment has unbelievable results. It reduces age spots and skin irregularities as well as improving skin complexion.

What is Lumecca?

Lumecca is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. After use, patients notice significant improvements in the complexion and clarity of the skin. Lumecca operates using photo- thermolysis, which provides a photofacial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.

What are the benefits?

In just 1-3 sessions Lumecca improves the appearance of:

  • Age spots (red/brown pigmentations)
  • Sun damage
  • Vascular lesions (spider veins, port wine

stains, leg telangliectasias)

  • Rosacea (redness)
  • Freckles

What areas can be treated?

Lumecca can be used on all areas of the body. The most common areas of treatment are zones that are regularly exposed to the sun. These often include the face, neck, decolletage, legs, hands and arms.

What steps must be taken before the procedure?

Avoid direct, excessive sun exposure or tanning one month prior to treatment.

What should I expect during and after Lumecca?

During treatment there will be a bright flash of light from the Lumecca that feels like a light elastic sensation. Redness and a slight warming of the skin are normal after treatment and usually subsides within an hour. Over the next 24-48 hours you may see a darkening of pigmented spots; in the week afterwards the pigmented lesions flake off, leading to an evening out of skin tone. After treating vascular lesions you may see the vein blanch and disappear or a color change in the vessel which dissipates after a few days.

How many sessions are required?

An improved skin appearance can be noted after the first session and multiple sessions provide even better results. Treatment regime’s depend on the severity of skin damage, type of treatment (vascular vs sun damage) and energy settings.

How quickly will I see results?

Sun damage and skin complexion results can be seen a few days after the first session. The skin will continue to look younger and more brilliant over time with most visible results after 1-2 weeks. Having multiple photofacial sessions will improve the final result. For vascular treatments such as spider or leg veins, results can be seen immediately in up to 2 weeks.

Are there any side effects?

Most patients do not experience any side effects and any skin reaction usually resolves within a few hours. Patients may find they are sensitive to sunlight immediately after treatment. It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
