Ultrasound Therapy

The Ultrasound Therapy can be coupled with your Endermologie sessions, since it is capable of penetrating several centimeters deep.
In the fatty tissues, the ultrasound oscillates the fat cells, facilitating the removal of accumulated fat and waste material.
Moreover, it is mainly suitable for treating the cellulite tribulations occurring in the regions of the abdomen and the thighs.

Mesotherapy

Mesosculpting is the answer to the question that so many people have been asking:
Is it possible to get rid of fat without having some kind of invasive procedure?
Microinjections of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants are given using a proprietary, individualized "fat burning" formula.
These injections are given directly into the areas being treated i.e. love handles, thighs, etc.
A series of treatments (5-15) are given spaced 1 week apart. Results are considered permanent as long as the patient adheres to the proper nutrition and exercise regimen.
For those who find liposuction "too much" Mesotherapy for fat loss and body contouring is absolutely the answer. For those patients who have already had liposuction, and now find fat depositing in other areas as well as increased cellulite build up, Mesotherapy is surely what you're looking for.

Coolsculpting

CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then gradually disappear. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. The Cool Sculpting fat freezing procedure is FDA-cleared and contours the body by safely and effectively freezing away unwanted fat for good without surgery or downtime.

Carboxytherapy

Carboxytherapy refers to the cutaneous and subcutaneous administration of carbon dioxide gas [CO2] for therapeutic purposes.
What is the process of Carboxytherapy?

The session will take from 10 to 15 minutes where the CO2 will be injected under the skin using very minute caliber needle (less than 0.3 mm).
The process is very simple; there is no recovery period or pre operative technique as there is no anesthesia involved in the session.

Carboxytherapy for Cellulite

Patients could make use of Carboxytherapy to get rid of cellulite because of its effect on fat cells.
Carbon Dioxide is able to destroy most of the fat cells beneath the skin. In addition to its effect on fat cells, carbon dioxide will also increase the amount of blood reaching the fibrous tissue layer beneath the skin. So, your skin will look healthier because of the increased blood supply, your fibrous tissue will get thicker and firmer with less fat cells in between.
