What is body contouring?

Non-surgical body contouring uses non-invasive laser technology to heat and melt away fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. This is not a weight loss treatment; rather, body contouring targets areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

The procedure is typically used to address fat deposits in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Back
  • Front of thighs
  • Back of thighs
  • Bra strap bulge
  • Upper arms

One body contouring treatment takes about 25 minutes. During your session, your physician will use a laser wand to target your areas of concern. The laser will destroy fat cells while leaving the surrounding healthy cells and tissues unharmed.

Over the course of the next 6 to 12 weeks, your body will readily break down and flush away the targeted fat tissue. This will reveal your fit physique.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a specialized laser treatment that targets pigmented hair follicles below the skin. The heat from the laser causes the follicles to slow and eventually stop the production of hair. Both men and women use laser hair removal to address the following areas:

  • Upper Lip
  • Chin
  • Unibrow
  • Navel
  • Areolae (nipples)
  • Chest
  • Ears
  • Underarms
  • Sideburns
  • Back or front of the neck
  • Lower back
  • Shoulders
  • Arms (half or full arm)
  • Legs (half or full leg)
  • Ingrown hairs

It can take between 4-6 treatments to stop hair from growing in one area entirely. That's because your hair grows in cycles, and laser hair removal can only target hair follicles that are actively producing hair.

You can return after four weeks for additional treatments. Once a full course of treatment is over, your hair will not return for many months or even years. Your results will depend on factors like genetics and initial hair coverage.

What is Facial Rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation can give you a clearer and more youthful complexion using a variety of techniques. There are several options available to you depending on your individual goals.

Micro-Needling

One such technique is micro-needling. This procedure involves the use of hair-like needles to create tiny microchannels in your skin, thus stimulating collagen production. Micro-needling is useful in treating acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and improving your skin’s overall texture.

Pollogen Legend RF

Another great option is Pollogen Legend RF. This treatment uses radiofrequency energy to reverses mild to moderate signs of aging. The radio energy is useful in tightening sagging skin on the jawline, neck, and face.
