At Healthy Skin Spa we are committed to helping you accomplish your body goals of reducing fat pockets, stubborn fat and cellulite.
Cellulite is the dimpled-looking skin that commonly occurs in the thigh region, which forms when fatty tissue deep in the skin pushes up against connective tissue. This creates the dimpled appearance or orange peel that cellulite is infamous for.
It’s estimated that more than 85 percent of all women 21 years and older have cellulite. It’s not as common in men. Cellulite can develop on the thighs because the area naturally has more fatty tissue.
Other risk factors for the development of cellulite include:
- Family History
- Tissue Inflammation
- Increased Fatty Tissue Caused by Weight Gain
- Loss of Collagen
- Poor Circulation (a common issue in the legs)
- Poor Lymphatic Drainage
- Thinning Epidermis (outer layer of skin)
Massage may reduce cellulite by improving lymphatic drainage. It can also help stretch your skin tissue, which can help stretch out cellulite dimples too. Massage creams offer the same benefits, but the key component is the massaging process. You can't apply a cream and expect the cellulite to go away by itself. Massages can improve the condition of the skin, keeping it firm, reducing cellulite, fluid retention, stretch marks, etc. It will also help increase circulation and help remove toxins from the body.
Drinking water is another low-cost option that may help with cellulite. Not only does it keep you hydrated, but water also helps remove toxins that can lead to fat accumulation. Water can also help encourage circulation and lymphatic flow.
If you do want to lose weight, you may find that healthy diets and daily physical exercise can help reduce dimples on your thighs.
You will experience a full package consisting of:
Ultrasound Cavitation, Wood Therapy, Presso-therapy, Infrared Sauna Blanket, Lipo Laser,
Exfoliation, Body Wrapping, Transdermal Mesotherapy and a Hydrating Cream.
Cavitation is the most effective non-surgical treatment for eliminating cellulite and localized fat.
Aesthetic cavitation (also known as ultrasonic cavitation) uses a roller and cavitation gel to eliminate body fat accumulated in specific and localized areas. It consists of generating a controlled series of small bubbles that produce ultrasound waves which destroy the body's fat cells without interfering with the blood-system. Fat acquires a liquid state and it is possible to remove it from the body through urine and the lymphatic system.
It is a useful method for suppressing cellulite, orange peel, and the so-called “mattress skin”. It is especially used in the postpartum period. Some women take time to lose weight and recover the figure they had before pregnancy and find it difficult to eliminate the fat that has accumulated in certain areas of the body during the gestation process (especially the abdomen, thighs, and legs). Cavitation is advised against during pregnancy, and for those who have implanted devices such as prostheses or pacemakers.
Cavitation should not be considered as a single solution for weight or volume reduction. It is instead a powerful complement to physical exercise and a balanced diet. Supporters of this system consider it an intermediate point between liposuction, other surgeries and slimming regimes.
Sessions are normally purchased in packages, since their effects are better perceived on an ongoing basis. In this way, the price is cheaper than if one were to acquire individual sessions, which do not have the same effectiveness in isolation.
A body wrap (also known as a “body cocoon” or a “body mask”) is a spa treatment created to enhance the health and appearance of skin, and/or reduce body measurements.
A reducing solution formula is applied to the limbs and torso before they are wrapped in a plastic film. This promotes the extraction of dirt, toxins and excess water from the skin. Most wraps are performed on the entire body (minus the face and genital area).
Some common benefits of body wrapping include:
- Dead Skin Removal
- Inch and/or Weight Loss
- Intensive Moisturization
Your lymphatic system helps eliminate your body’s waste. A healthy, active lymphatic system uses the natural movements of smooth muscle tissue to do this. However, surgery, medical conditions, or other damage can cause fluids to build up in your lymph system and in your lymph nodes - a condition known as lymphedema.
Pressotherapy is used in medicine to exert compression on the lower and upper limbs, like the movements of a massage. This is done using a device that performs intermittent and sequential inflating of accessories (applicators) that wrap around the parts of the body to be treated. Pressotherapy stimulates the Lymphatic System to increase the flow of the lymph to flush out toxins of the body through a relaxing and calm massage treatment. People may benefit from lymphatic drainage to treat a wide array of disorders, from edema (swelling) to wrinkles.
- Helps to increase and improve lymphatic and blood circulation.
- Also facilitates transcutaneous penetration of topical products.
- Helps relieve edema.
- Reduces everyday stress
- Reduces muscle tension
- Helps to relieve muscle and joint pains.
- Body Care: Helps to improve the silhouette.
Pressotherapy is therefore recommended for:
- Circulatory disorders (venous insufficiency, varicose veins, heavy and tired legs).
- Post-traumatic and post-operative edema (such as “big arms” due to mastectomy), fracture, sprain, burn or hematoma.
- Muscle pain and stiffness.
- Muscle recovery after a sport.
- Nervous disorders such as stress and insomnia.
- Arthritic and rheumatic pains.
- Eliminating toxins.
- Body remodeling.
Here is a list of conditions and diseases for which it is better to avoid pressotherapy:
- Acute venous inflammation
- DVT – Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Malignant neoplasms
- Acute skin inflammation
- Artery occlusions
Wood Therapy Body Contouring
With this treatment we use anatomically sculpted wooden implements to improve the body’s shape proportions. This therapy helps redefine body contours, break down stubborn pockets of cellulite, facilitate weight loss, shrink disproportionate bulges and smooth orange-peel dimples.
These instruments allow high targeted pressure to be applied, and that pressure intensifies the breakdown of fat and fibrous cellulite so that it can be eliminated naturally along with other toxins.
- Breaks Down Cellulite
- Stimulates Lymphatic Drainage
- Loosens Tight, Restricted Muscles
- Eliminates Toxins
- Hastens Metabolism
- Burns Fat
- Tones, Tightens and Reduces Circumference
The technique employs a series of repetitive movements using a dozen diverse wooden implements which manipulate targeted areas of muscle, fat and cellulite, stimulating the lymphatic drainage system to rid the body of stored toxins. This release of toxins jumpstarts the metabolism to burn fat. The manipulation also serves to shrink disproportionate bulges and smooth orange-peel dimples.
Infrared Sauna Blanket
The term "Infrared Blankets" is used to describe where the light waves fall on the light spectrum. The resulting heat from this process heats the body without heating the air around the user. This process used in infrared saunas WILL NOT create the massive amounts of steam that can cloud your vision and make breathing more difficult.
Health benefits of an infrared sauna blanket
There are numerous health benefits to an infrared sauna blanket including, weight-loss, muscle tension relief, detoxification, increased metabolism, and a stronger immune system. The controlled, timed heat, will cause the body to sweat and release toxins. The result is a loss of that excess body fat. Along with diet and exercise the infrared sauna blanket can maintain a healthy immune system and body weight. The loss of toxins creates that healthy immune system and can boost your metabolism, accelerating the burning of body fat. Relaxation is another result of the infrared heat used in the blanket. The controlled heat calms and soothes sore muscles allowing the body to continue moving fast and strong throughout the entire day.
When to avoid infrared saunas
In general, infrared saunas are considered safe for most people.
However, if you’re on medications, have implanted medical devices, or have a medical condition — whether acute or chronic — you should be cautious.
- Having low blood pressure
- Having kidney disease
- Taking medications such as diuretics, other blood pressure-lowering drugs, or medications that can cause dizziness
While not an exhaustive list, the conditions listed in this section warrant avoiding infrared sauna use or getting clearance from a healthcare provider.
- Nerve and motor function conditions. If you have a neurological deficit, your ability to sense and respond to the intensity of heat might put you at risk for heat or burn injuries.
- Pregnancy considerations. If you’re pregnant, avoid using the sauna unless you’ve received clearance from your doctor.
- Age considerations. If you have an age-related limitation, avoid using a sauna. This includes older adults who are more prone to dehydration and dizziness with dry heat, which can lead to falls. For children, discuss infrared sauna use with their doctor before trying it out.
- Weak or compromised immune system. If you have a weakened immune system, Cook-Bolden says you should contact the facility to make sure it’s well-kept and that it has strict cleaning protocols and procedures in place that meet industry standards. Afterward, talk with your healthcare provider to get clearance to use the facility.
- Unhealed wounds. If you have open wounds or you’re recovering from surgery, wait until these areas are healed. Then talk with your healthcare provider first to get permission before getting infrared sauna treatments.
- Heart conditions. “People with cardiovascular diseases, or underlying heart arrhythmia such as atrial fibrillation, should talk with their doctor before using a sauna,” Sharma says. The use of a sauna can increase heart rate and cause arrhythmia.
If the risks outweigh the benefits, Sharma says, remember the benefits of saunas are mainly because of the physiological effects of sweating and increased heart rate, just like moderate exercise.
Tips for using an infrared sauna
Whether you’re using an infrared sauna at a health club, spa, or at home, it’s important to follow the general guidelines for safe use. Here are some tips to get you started.
- Seek medical clearance. Although there’s evidence supporting the notion that infrared sauna treatments can be beneficial, Cook-Bolden says it’s best to seek the advice of your healthcare provider before using the sauna. This is especially true if you have any conditions that may be contraindicated.
- Avoid drinking alcohol. Drinking alcohol prior to sauna use can cause overheating and potentially lead to dehydration, a heat stroke, and heat exhaustion. “Due to its dehydrating nature, it’s best to avoid alcohol consumption beforehand,” says Cook-Bolden.
- Drink plenty of water. Make sure you drink plenty of water before getting in the sauna, during your session — especially if you start feeling light-headed or thirsty, or you find yourself sweating excessively, and also when you get out.
- Start with mini sessions. Begin with mini sessions that last approximately 10–15 minutes. As you get comfortable, you can add time to each session until you reach 20 minutes. Depending on your access to the sauna and overall goal, 3 sessions a week seems to be the average number for most people.
- Avoid use with irritated skin. If you have a sensitive skin condition or a condition such as eczema than can cause skin irritation, Cook-Bolden says you may want to allow your skin to recover before exposure.
- Pay attention to certain symptoms. If you experience symptoms of dizziness or light-headedness, stop your session immediately. Sharma says this can be a sign of dehydration or other medical complications. And if the symptoms persist, he recommends seeking immediate medical assistance.
LIPOLASER Body Slimming
It adopts the latest innovation in non-surgical, non-invasive laser lipolysis. Led Laser emits low levels of laser energy, which creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down the stored triglycerides into free fatty acids, glycerol and water molecules, the same natural response initiated by the body anytime it needs to use its stored energy reserves.
These free fatty acids are then transported throughout the body by the lymphatic system to supply the body with energy, again just as if the body would respond in times of caloric scarcity. A period of exercise post treatment ensures the complete metabolism of these freed fatty acids, shrinking the fat cells and delivering the body shaping results your patients are looking for.
This is a non-destructive, targeted fat reduction technology, which means excess fat deposits can be treated anywhere on the body and the fat cells are not destroyed as a result of treatment. It targeted fat reduction and circumferential reduction has many advantages over other body shaping technologies. Here are just a few!
- Do not used the machine if you have open wounds.
- Pregnant women should not operate and use this machine.
- Prohibit the use of metal objects.
- No use of gold wire implantation.
- People who are allergic to light are forbidden to use.
- No use during female physical week.
- Patients with congenital heart disease are prohibited from using instrumental physiotherapy.
- Taking hormone drugs, do not use and operate instruments.
- During the treatment, the diet was mainly light.
- Do not use the instrument on an empty stomach. After a full meal, you should take a course of fat reduction.
