BODY SCULPTING SANTA BARBARA
Fat Reduction - Skin Tightening
Since the demand of aesthetic treatments have increased and become more accessible, fat-reduction procedures have also experienced an increase. Nonsurgical fat reduction and nonsurgical body contouring are two of the procedures that have been a major part of the aesthetic medicine trends. In these procedures, the fat cells get destroyed from stubborn areas of the body without any surgery, for example, the thighs, abdomen, upper arms, and bottom. What makes nonsurgical body contouring different from surgical liposuction is the fact that fat removal techniques do not need anesthesia, incisions, stitches, or a longer recovery period. Our advanced method combines Laser, Radiofrequency and PEMF giving you the best results.
Laser, PEMF, Radiofrequency
Our laser provides body sculpting and fat-loss technology that directly targets fat cells in 25-minute sessions. Light wavelengths are customized to penetrate layers of skin to reach the fat cells underneath. The laser passes through skin cells, and though they may be partially affected, this is a good thing; the energy distributed by the laser is what stimulates collagen production. What happens to the fat cells? The treatment surpasses many other toning procedures: the cells are eliminated. Light is energy, and when that energy is focused on fat cells, they heat up to reach a specific temperature, and the cells become unstable and break apart. Your body then naturally eliminates these dead fat cells through the body’s lymphatic system.
Pulsed Electric Magnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) is a cellular exercise that stimulates microcirculation. This allows blood to flow to different areas, promoting the "melting" or burning of fat. PEMF amplifies the microcirculation process via regular sessions of two to three per week for a six to twelve-week period. Committing to regular PEMF cellular exercise results in:
Dilation of blood vessels, allowing an increase of oxygen and nitric oxide to all cells and organs
Stimulation of red cell separation and increased cellular capacitance
A decrease in cellular water viscosity during this circulatory process
Improvement of electroporation by opening the cellular lipid channels, emulsifying fatty acids which in turn can be burned as energy.
The simplest way to describe what is VelaShape is that it's the product of four technology that shrink fat cells rather than completely get rid of them. The treatment uses:
2) Infrared light
3) Vacuum suction
4) Mechanical massage
How does VelaShape work?
Once the device is placed against the skin, it uses vacuum technology to suction against the skin and massage rollers to knead the treatment area.
The other technologies also go to work:
Radio-frequency energy and infrared light penetrate the fat cells and temporarily perforate their membranes, causing the fat cells to release fatty acids, glycerol, and water into the body and then shrink.
The process also boosts collagen production to smooth skin, which is why it is FDA-cleared to temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.
