Non-Surgical Cellulite Reduction with VelaShape
New Woman

Did you know that 80% of women have cellulite?

VelaShape (featured on shows such as Rachael Ray, and Dr. Phil) is the first and only FDA approved, non-surgical alternative for cellulite and thigh circumference reduction.

VelaShape combines bi-polar radiofrequency (RF), and infrared light energy, with vacuum and mechanical massage to reduce the volume and appearance of cellulite on your thighs, buttocks, love handles and abdomen. The precise heating used by VelaShape ensures a fast, safe, and effective treatment with no downtime, and minimum discomfort. A specially designed massage system smoothes out the skin to help heat energy delivery, resulting in increased metabolism of stored energy, and reduction of the actual fat cells and fat chambers.

In a clinical multi-center study, patients reported an average reduction in the size of their thighs of between Ā½ an inch and 3 inches. Most patients see a gradual smoothing of the skin’s surface, a reduction in cellulite, and a reshaping of the treated area in about four treatments. This enables you to quickly, comfortably, and safely achieve a toned, and contoured body in about 4 treatments.

Evolence – An Improved Collagen Filler
Brunette Woman 30's

EvolenceĀ® Collagen Filler is one of the newest dermal wrinkle fillers to hit the market.

Approved in June 2008, Evolence is a sterile, biodegradable injectable collagen filler that essentially works the same way other collagen fillers do – by replacing your body’s lost collagen with new collagen. As we age, our bodies naturally lose collagen, since 70% – 80% of the skin’s dermis is made of collagen, this affects the skin’s elasticity, and fullness. Collagen loss contributes to the creation of wrinkles around our nose, mouth, and other areas, significantly contributing to how old we look.

Some of my patients who’ve tried Evolence have asked a great question; “Other collagen fillers exist, so what’s the big deal with Evolence?” There are several differences, but the big change with Evolence is the length that the product lasts, and continues to do away with wrinkles for at least six months (other collagen fillers only last for 3 – 6 months). Additionally, results are immediate and natural-looking, Evolence causes minimal-to-no swelling or bruising, and doesn’t require a skin pre-test, and results are usually seen in just one visit.

The advanced collagen in Evolence mimics the structure of your skin’s collagen, allowing it to better work with existing collagen than some other products. Evolence Collagen will help add structure, strength, and volume to your skin for a natural look and feel that lasts.

While Evolence is new in the U.S., it’s been used extensively in Canada, Europe, and Israel for several years.

Clarisonic Pro
Clarisonic Pro

The Clarisonic Pro cleanses the skin using gentle, effective sonic vibrations. It uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to clean, soften and smooth your skin in just 60 seconds a day.

Cleansing the skin is the first step in any skin care routine, but it’s often overlooked. Dirt and oil may become trapped in your pores, and manual cleansing may not be enough. The Clarisonic micro-massage action cleans more than twice as effectively, and removes makeup up to six times more effectively as a manual cleansing.

Clarisonic also helps to reduce pore size, improve skin tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We also recommend the Clarison system to help improve the absorption of serums and moisturizers.

The Clarisonic Pro is excellent for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin, acne and rosacea, so it’s great for the whole family.
