CryoClear gently freezes dead skin cells in the upper layer of the skin to treat age spots, sun spots and skin tags. CryoClear takes about 10 minutes to complete, is painless, and there is no downtime from your normal activities after the treatment. 90% of clients will see complete resolution after their first CryoClear treatment.
You can expect the treated area to turn darker for a few days and then see pink healthy tissue appear as your body heals the treated area. We encourage you to use a combination of a mineral-based sunscreen and other topicals that your Esthetician will recommend for the best outcome.
Dermaplaning was once an aesthetic trade secret in the modeling industry. Excellent as on its own or combined with hydrating facials, chemical peels or rejuvenating laser treatments, dermaplaning gently removes to outer most layer of dead skin cells on the face. A highly trained Medical Aesthetician or Physician's Assistant will manually exfoliate the treatment area using a 10 gauge scalpel. Vellus hair, also referred to as peach fuzz, is also removed during the treatment. The immediate result is fresh, bright skin revealed and a smoother look and feel to the skin. This treatment is recommended for all skin types with the exception of those who suffer from acne. This treatment is safe and effective for pregnant or nursing women.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How is this treatment performed?
By holding the skin taut, a sterile 10 gauge blade is stroked across the skin at a 45 degree angle exfoliating dry skin cells and vellus hair.
Is this treatment safe?
This treatment is extremely safe when performed by an experienced Medical Aesthetician or Physician's Assistant. It is comparable to a man shaving his face.
Will the vellus hair grow back thicker?
No. It is physiologically impossible for vellus hair, also known as peach-fuzz, to grow back thicker. Vellus hair when cut or removed will grow back the same as the structure of the hair does not become damaged, it is unchanged.
Can Dermaplaning be performed with laser treatments or chemical peels?
Absolutely, it is often recommended.
How often can this procedure be performed?
Monthly. Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells. It is best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next Dermaplaning treatment.
The ECHO 2 - Skin Treatment System improves the condition of the skin at the cellular level. It is not a facial, but rather a treatment that uses scientific principles to enhance the skin's own cellular ability to receive nutrients. By increasing the skins own semi-permeability, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes will reach each skin cell more efficiently than ever before.
This exciting technique was developed by John Gardner, a Certified Respiratory Therapist and Oxygen Specialist with extensive experience in treating burned and diseased skin using hyperbaric oxygenation. Now, the treatment that was formerly reserved for burned or diseased skin is being employed in the treatment of acne, sun damage, dehydration, and under nourished skin.
There are four steps in this skin treatment program. In addition to exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells on the skin's surface by applying a mixture of grapefruit extracts, papaya enzymes and electrolyte soap, and cleansing with a mint astringent which removes the bacteria from the skin, the treatment hydrates and oxygenates the skin. The entire process uses 87 ingredients, and takes 30 to 45 minutes depending on the needs of the client's skin.
Hydration supplies the skin with moisture and nourishment. ECHO 2 is the only treatment program of its kind to use the process of "osmotic hydration" to enhance the skin's own cellular ability to "receive" nutrients. This is accomplished by using various pH-adjusted solutions that are able to stimulate the skin and increase its "semi-permeability". This, in turn, allows the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and oxygen to reach the skin cells more effectively.
The oxygenation process delivers pure oxygen, in conjunction with vitamins and minerals, to nourish and revitalize the skin cells more effectively. These sub-microbic particles saturate the skin at a rate of 180,000,000 molecules per minute.
During the treatment, the client will experience pleasant feelings of stimulation and relaxation. Most clients begin to notice favorable results in the condition of their skin after two or three treatments. The longevity of the effects may vary between individual skin types and individual skin conditions. The process, however, is designed for all skin types. If a client is using Glycolic acid therapy, the results are extremely favorable.
Here are just some of the results reported by providers and clients:
The Bodywrap produces far infrared heat (FIR), which is actually light that we can't see, but can feel as heat. All warm blooded animals, including humans, generate this type of heat naturally to warm themselves, and more than half of the sun's heat is infrared as well.
Infrared heat warms us without warming the air around us (don't you feel warmer when the sun comes out from behind the clouds?) and penetrates our bodies, rather than only heating the skin. The FIT Bodywrap generates infrared heat in the 5-15 micron wavelength, the same wavelength as the sun and our bodies produce, so it is safe and natural.
During a 60 min Bodywrap session, far infrared heat is generated very close to the body, and can penetrate 1-2 inches, heating areas where fats and toxins have been stored without generating uncomfortable heat on the surface of the skin. As many fats and toxins are soluble at temperatures of just over 100 degrees, these fats and toxins, including cholesterol, heavy metals and acids, can be dissolved and excreted through our sweat or kidneys.
Heating the body can activate over 2 million sweat glands as the body seeks to cool itself. Extensive sweating can be very energy intensive, increasing metabolic rates, blood flow, tissue oxygenation and burning calories as you sweat and for some time afterward. In recent clinical research, approximately 15% of the sweat was composed of these undesirable fats and toxins in an infrared session, compared to 3-5% with normal exercise.
The caloric consumption can be further enhanced with the use of Booster Spray, which also enhances microcirculation, stimulates skin detoxification and reduces cellulite. The Bodywrap can uniquely target this heat to specific areas, controlled to the specific degree, or immerse the entire body in evenly applied far infrared heat. Depending on the areas targeted, temperatures applied, and session duration and frequency, a variety of benefits can be derived.
Most people will produce substantial amounts of sweat during a 50 minute Bodywrap weight loss session. While there can be a short term loss of weight due to this sweating, most of this weight is immediately regained with re-hydration. But the fats and toxins in the sweat, as much as 15% of the sweat content, are not replaced.
Clinical research has also established that sweating is an energy-intensive process. Extensive sweating can speed up the metabolism, resulting in dramatically increased caloric consumption. Simply put, sweating burns calories, often at very high rates. The metabolism can remain elevated for several hours after a session. So a Bodywrap session can burn calories both during a session and for some time afterward.
Repeated Bodywrap sessions can result in weight loss through the combination of burning calories and removing fats and toxins.
As mentioned above, the sweat produced in a Bodywrap session can consist of about 85% water. Compare this to the water content of sweat produced by normal exercise or non-infrared sauna, which is often about 95% water. The difference can be attributed to the fat and toxins that were dissolved through the application of infrared heat and excreted as part of the sweat. Bodywrap's infrared heat therapy can be effective in removing fats, cholesterol, ammonia, sulfuric acid, nicotine, alcohol, mercury and aluminum. These can be dissolved and removed through sweating and also through normal bodily elimination.
Many of us have used a heating pad to soothe pain and heat has been well documented in the treatment of pain relief. The FIT Bodywrap's penetrating infrared heat can result in immediate therapeutic benefit through increased blood flow and tissue oxygenation and may also act directly on irritated nerve endings. Clinical research has established that an infrared treatment such as a Bodywrap session can increase blood flow from 5-7 quarts/minute to as much as 13 quarts/minute. A 2008 study found that chronic pain patients experienced a 70% reduction in pain levels after the first infrared therapy session.
Recent clinical observations and studies have produced a large body of observations on the potential beneficial effects of infrared therapy in a broad range of disorders as well as promoting well-being, including:
A photofacial, or fotofacial, also known as photorejuvenation, is a treatment used to reverse sun damage, even out facial color as well as improve tone and texture in the process, as well as:
