I LIPO

I-lipo is a new revolutionary system that uses low level lasers for smoothing cellulite, fat reduction, and body shaping treatments. The i-lipo uses photobiomodulation to stimulate the body’s natural process for releasing stored content in the adipose cells.

Every day, the human body is storing excess calories from you diet in the adipose tissue. The brain is in control of when the contents are released, and then metabolized into energy. You can compare the adipose cells to a re-chargeable battery, sometimes used and sometimes stored up depending on diet and exercise. i-lipo is used to trigger the release of the contents, without exercise, and is able to target the precise stubborn areas. i-lipo is non-invasive with no pain, no needles, and no downtime. Patients can expect results of losing 1-2 dress sizes during their course of treatments. i-lipo is best paired with with a change in lifestyle to maintain your results, typically just simple diet and exercise.

How Does It Work?

The low level laser used in i-lipo creates a photobiomodulation effect, altering the cells chemistry and triggering a release of a lipase enzyme that can break down triglyceride molecules into fatty acids and glycerol molecules. This process now makes them small enough to exit through your prose and be used as fuel by your metabolism. Naturally, your lymphatic system carries the cell contents and removes them. i-lipo maximizes the body’s lymphatic flow through stimulation of the nodes in your treatment area. It is recommended to exercise following treatment in order to metabolize the newly released fatty acids and glycerol in order to completely remove them from your body’s fat storage.

No Down Time

The i-lipo treatment is quick and simple, being completed in less than 30 minutes!

The course of treatment should be 8 sessions, performed twice a week so body reshaping can be complete in four weeks. Only 1 area is treated per day in order to maximize the burning off of the contents. If there is an excess of content in need of being burned off then there is a risk that it will be stored back as fat again.

Once a patient has completed a course of treatments they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep their results. After i-lipo treatment nutritional supplements are also used to maintain and encourage metabolic activity and to support a healthier lifestyle.

SEAWEED BODY WRAP

Seaweed may look gross when you spot it on the beach, but this slippery, stringy sea plant contains powerful ingredients that can benefit your skin.

How It Works

A thick paste is formed and spread over your entire body. Your body is then wrapped in a heated blanket while the paste soaks into the skin.

Benefits

A seaweed wrap helps to eliminate toxins from your body. The paste is applied to the body warm, causing you to sweat. During the sweating process, your body is eliminating impurities. These are then brought to the surface of the skin and rinsed away when the wrap is washed off.

Removes Dead Skin and Moisturizes

Dead skin prevents your body from absorbing moisture. While you sweat during a seaweed wrap, not only are toxins removed from the body, but dead skin is loosened as well. The seaweed itself is chock full of proteins, vitamins, minerals and lipids that easily soak into the skin to add moisture.

Reduces Cellulite and Improves Body Contouring

If you’ve recently lost weight and have excess skin, a seaweed wrap can help with body contouring. It aids in shaping the excess skin so it’s smoother and less noticeable by direct diffusion of vitamins and minerals. Additionally, if cellulite is a problem, a seaweed wrap may help reduce the undesirable marks it leaves on the skin.

 

AIRBRUSH TANNING

Norvell

A custom designed sunless tanning that produces an express, quick-drying, natural, long-lasting, “just off the beach” tan! Radiant supple bronzed skin is only one spray away!  This breakthrough micro-nutrient technology delivers a potent blend of vitamins and antioxidants to boost the skin’s inherent “just off the beach” glow. The natural formula works with the skin creating a customized shade of color every time. Scented formulas are fragranced with essence of raspberry and almond extracts.

The Maillard Reaction

This reaction is known as the Maillard reaction also known as “nonenzymematic browning”. It can be influenced by several factors such as skin type, thickness, pH levels, medications and dryness of the skin. The total composition of the sunless tanning products greatly influences consistency, hue, intensity of the final tan.

Exfoliation

To optimize this reaction certain conditions need to be met. As far as skin condition is concerned, it is important that exfoliation is carried out to remove loose/dead skin from the surface.  This allows the sunless product to be applied to the freshest layer of skin, allowing for an even application and prolonging the tan.

Skin pH

The reaction is also affected by pH both on the skin and in the product itself. Sunless products begin to develop within 3-4 hours after application, and continue to darken as long as 24 hours after they are applied.  The intensity of the colour is dependent on the proper pH balance of the skin, the formulations concentration of the DHA, along with the natural skin colour and tone.

Results

The “sunless” colour gradually fades as the dead skin cells flake off, typically within a 4-7 day period depending on the individual and the proper skin maintenance. Prolonged water submersion, swimming in pools,  or heavy sweating can lighten the tan by accelerating the shedding process.
