Body Contouring/Cellulite

You may be at a healthy weight, but still can be frustrated by cellulite or stubborn areas of fat (e.g. love handles, lower abdominal "paunch," saddlebags, double chin and pads under the eyes). These problem areas often have a strong genetic cause and we offer 3 different options for treatment that can be done on their own or in conjunction with one another.

 

If you are not at a healthy weight, you may be a candidate for weight loss medication or an individualized diet and exercise plan, prior to undergoing our body sculpting treatments. You may also require a hormonal assessment as you may be suffering from a hormonal imbalance that will not only affect your weight, but also your health. You can find information on this under the "Functional Medicine" tab.

 


BodyFX: A non-invasive body shaping and cellulite treatment also known as "Hot Sculpting". 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 induce fat cell apoptosis and provide beautiful body shaping results.
Schedule: 1 treatment every week for 4 treatments.

 


Mesotherapy: Mesotherapy employs the use of a solution called Mesostabyl or Lypoless which contain a combination of effective natural ingredients and are injected to induce fat cell matabolism. The main ingredients in each solution are Phosphatidylcholine (a substance that is known to break down fat pads), and L-carnitine (an amino acid which oxidizes fat). Without L-carnitine, the normal burning of fat cannot take place, and when injected into fatty areas it causes a dramatic increase in the rate of fat metabolism.
Schedule: 1 treatment every week for 6 treatments.

 

Carbossi Therapy: A treatment that's popular in Europe which involves injections of CO2 gas below the skin. Fat cells are very sensitive to CO2 gas and this process weakens and destroys fat calls, which results in fewer fat cells for body contouring. Additionally, Carbossi therapy works superficially to nourish the skin, in turn building and remodelling collagen and elastin in the area which ultimately smooths our cellulite and "orange peel" areas. This treatment works best in combination with Mesotherapy.
