A hand-held electrode is passed over a portion of skin, and a gentle pulsation of radio frequencies are emitted. Each pulse lasts about 4 minutes, and the entire process can take less than an hour. These RFs penetrate and gently heat the skin’s deepest layers while leaving the epidermis cool. This is an extremely tolerable treatment, as the outer temperature can be adjusted manually for comfort and there are also no harmful side effects or downtime from the procedure.
The raised temperature stimulates cells, targeting areas of fat, and creates apoptosis or slow fat cell death. The fat eliminating process begins with the truSculpt treatment, but once activated it continues on its own for months. After about 8 weeks, a follow-up visit and application is usually recommended to complete the procedure.
Studies have shown that heating the subcutaneous tissues at 45° C stimulates fat cells, resulting in a 60% loss in viability. TruSculpt is safe for all skin types and can be used for men and women. A good candidate for the procedure is someone with a BMI of 30 or less, but a consultation at Winter Park Laser will determine if it’s right for you. (Persons with pacemakers, tumors, or metallic implants cannot be treated.)
Women and men who feel healthy, even work out consistently but have inherited or can't loose the dimples caused from cellulite or the lose skin caused by gravity. Also for those wanting to avoid invasive lipo-suction. Areas treated include arms, abdomen, front of thighs, back of thighs, and buttocks.
VelaShape II™ cellulite reduction is Powered by the revolutionary elos™ Technology utilizing bi-polar radio frequency, it treats the deeper tissue, offering a measurable reduction in fat layers, circumference and the upper layers of the skin, resulting in cellulite reduction, the smoothing of the skin’s tone and texture, inches lost, and noticeable reshaping of the treated area in 5-6 treatments. We use an infrared thermometer to ensure your body heats up to 104 degrees-the temperature it takes to melt fat. Many clients describe the treatments as feeling like a warm deep tissue massage. The Velashape II is 20% more powerful than its predecessor Velashape I giving you shorter treatments, with better, longer lasting results in fewer treatments. This treatment has no discomfort, is non-invasive and requires no down-time.
A noticeable change comes as soon as the first treatment and continues to improve after an average of 5 treatments. Reduced inches of 2-5 inches per treated area, smoother, tighter skin and improved texture, and a reduction of dimpling or hardened fatty bulges on the treated areas. Also better defined curves on the hips or buttocks.
TruSculpt™ is the first RF Non-invasive procedure to give permanent surgical type results, previously only available through cosmetic surgery. TruSculpt™ is safe for all skin types and can be used for men and women.
On average, patients can quickly see permanent results in their appearance, such as smaller mass, tighter skin and less dimpling in only 2 treatments.
