  • Wrinkles and loose skin
  • Rough, sun damaged skin and enlarged pores
  • Hair thinning
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • And more…
What areas can be treated?

Any area of the face or body in need of skin tightening, muscle building, fat reduction and more can be treated!  The most common problem areas we treat include:

  • Face: eye contour, cheeks, jowls, jawline and under the chin.
  • Body: Neck, chest, arms, abdomen, bra bulge, hips, love handles, buttocks, legs (thighs, calves)
What should I expect with my treatments?
  • Each treatment has different nuances, but with most of our face and body contouring procedures, clients relax comfortably on our treatment table with a roll beneath their knees and neck for support.
  • During many treatments your technician will apply lubricant or serum, and position or move the specific handpiece rapidly over the target area, administering powerful energy.
  • Depending on the specific treatment, clients may feel warming and cooling sensations, along with mild vibrations. We will check in with you throughout your appointment to ensure you are comfortable and can adjust temperatures and intensity for each person’s comfort level.
  • Slight swelling and redness occur with some treatments. This is completely normal and typically dissipates in a few hours.
  • Treatment times range from 20-40 minutes depending on the area and number of areas treated.
  • Because there’s little to no downtime, work and normal daily routines can be resumed right away.
What should I do before and after treatments?
  • Hydrate – Drink 8-10 cups of water before and three days after all face and body contouring, skin tightening, and cellulite reduction
  • Check with your physician if you have any medical conditions before your appointment.
  • Remove makeup, lotions and jewelry from the treatment area(s) before your appointment.
  • Three days post treatment, refrain from alcoholic beverages, strenuous exercise, baths or saunas that will cause excessive sweating.
  • Continue with a healthy diet, exercise program and skin tightening homecare with SPF 30+ rain or shine to maximize your results.
What Is the time commitment?

We design our sessions and programs to be as efficient as possible as we want to help our clients reach their goals quickly and get back to enjoying life.

  • With most treatments we recommend a series of 4-6 treatments spaced two to three weeks apart, within a 6-month timeframe.
  • Appointments are scheduled weekly or every two to three weeks depending on the treatment your scheduling needs and goals.
  • EmSlim patients will need 2-3, quick 30-minute treatments per week, for optimal results.
  • Treatment times vary from 20-60 minutes per treatment area.
  • As there’s little to no downtime, your normal routine will not be not interrupted.
How do your treatments compare?

We personally tested other cellulite treatments and skin tightening procedures and found they were too expensive and did not fulfill their promised results. In some circumstances it seemed we were paying for the name instead of proven technology. In some instances, we felt that some treatments seemed like one-size-fits-all. We really listen and tailor our fat reduction, microneedling, plasma pen, skin tightening treatments and more, to address each client’s unique concerns and goals.

How many treatments are needed to see results?

As each individual is different, the degree and speed at which patients see results varies from person to person.

  • With some treatments, results are immediate, while others will see more results ranging from 48 hours, to two to three weeks.
  • With most of our treatments more significant improvement is seen at four to six weeks, with additional results seen one-month post treatment.
  • To maintain and extend results, we recommend a follow up visit one month after your series is completed and a “tune-up” every six months.
What type of results can I expect?

As we are continually adding the newest cutting-edge treatments to improve our client’s appearance, please call or email us to learn more about the phenomenal results we are achieving. Results depend on the specific treatment you are receiving and vary from client to client. For example, with our fat reduction treatments we see size-reduction in the abdomen, thighs or treated areas, and a smoother, sleeker appearance overall. With skin tightening and anti-aging treatments, our clients witness smooth, tight, firm skin. With many of our treatments, results may last 1 to 3 years.
