Body contouring treatments are a combination of multi-polar radio frequency and infrared waves. Radio frequency waves produce heat under the skin, effectively targeting and breaking down fat cells. The fat is absorbed by the lymphatic system and then flushed out. The infrared waves tighten the skin a process which rejuvenates the surrounding skin by renewing collagen fibers, resulting in elastic, youthful and shining skin.
Skin tightening treatments include infrared, radio frequency and intense pulsed light. The treatments stimulate the growth of collagen while contracting the skin fibres resulting in tighter rejuvenated skin.
Skin rejuvenation treatments include a combination of infrared, radio frequency and intense pulse light. The technologies together, allow a deep, non-invasive and safe penetration into multiple skin layers, subsequently remodeling collagen, tightening skin and improving scars.
Acne treatments use three effective non-invasive and safe clicnical mechanisims.
