At "Ultra"Sound Body Creations, technicians employ two tools to reduce stubborn fat deposits: the Cavi-Lipo machine, and the client's lymphatic system. The Cavi-Lipo's applicator glides over areas, such as the legs, abdomen, and neck, rupturing fat cells. The cells' contents are then processed by the lymphatic system, leaving the treated area with less cellulite and firmer skin. Consultations before each treatment ensure that guests receive personalized advice, and body wraps are available to promote lymphatic drainage following appointments.
Headed by veteran plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten, Central Ohio Plastic Surgery beautifies bodies with a suite of advanced cosmetic procedures. Botox treatments use injections of purified protein to paralyze wrinkle-causing muscles, smoothing out the epidermal furrows that can often obscure detailed facial tattoos. All procedures are performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon fully trained in administering injections safely and professionally. Appointments take about half an hour, and the injections themselves take only five minutes, allowing patients to defeat unwanted wrinkles during a lunch break or the boring part of a favorite feature-length infomercial. Full effects are usually apparent after two weeks, and the results last up to four to six months.
