In the past, people who wanted to lose weight had to either exercise frequently and diet or undergo invasive surgery. But now, the technicians at Colorado Springs Laser Like Lipo offer clients another solution: noninvasive laser liposuction. Unlike exercise, this technology can spot-treat fat on problem areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and back. And unlike traditional liposuction, this treatment requires no anesthesia, stitches, or downtime.
It works by sending cold laser light down to the fat cells in order to create tiny, temporary perforations in the fat cells' membranes. This prompts the cells to release their fatty acids into the body and shrink, resulting in lost inches. The entire process happens while clients recline in a comfortable position and read, listen to music, or nap.
Complementing the laser lipo are services such as whole-body vibration therapy, nutritional counseling, and detox treatments.
Joyce Garcia has dedicated her entire life to learning how human touch and mindful bodywork treatments can contribute to a person’s holistic wellbeing. In addition to formally studying massage therapy and mastering the techniques of Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal modalities, she's also trained in the practice of Brennan Healing Science—a hands-on therapy intended to restore a sense of physical and emotional stability by addressing energy imbalances. When human touch alone can’t fully address one's underlying health concerns, Joyce turns to modern technological advancements that support her mission of restoring holistic balance. The handheld XP2 device is one such piece of technology, using high-frequency, electro-sound energy to help cleanse the body, regenerate damaged tissues, and promote healthy, unrestricted flow of the lymphatic system.
Inside the meticulously cleaned facility, equipped with training from celebrity laser specialist Victor Byers, the technicians at The New Canvas specialize in erasing ink and returning skin to its original blank state. Though they custom tailor each tattoo-removal plan, the centerpiece of their arsenal is always the Quanta DNA Q+C+T laser. The instrument, which can be calibrated to different wavelengths suited to different colors of ink, blasts a square beam over the skin to break apart ink molecules without causing harmful laser overlap. Once broken down, the particles are dissolved naturally by the body's lymphatic system. The team also runs a Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling system during each treatment, which, like riding in a convertible filled with snowmen, cools the skin with gusts of chilled air.
The Colorado Dermatology Institute helps its patients become comfortable in their own skin with a variety of cosmetic-skincare, dermatologic, and surgical services. Microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels slough off dead skin cells, and Botox injections smooth wrinkles. Aside from aesthetic treatments, a team of dermatologists treats patients with skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, and eczema. For those suffering from skin cancer, the institute's doctors can surgically remove squamous-cell carcinoma and basal-cell carcinoma.
A chiropractor for more than 25 years, the owner of Healthy Image Colorado has also made time to acquire skills as a laser therapist and weight-loss consultant. But at his med spa, he focuses on beauty enhancing using two methods: microcurrent therapy and body wraps. Microcurrent rollers stimulate collagen production and skin repair to smooth away wrinkles and firm soft muscles in the face, neck, or body. Alternatively, cleansing body wraps use herbal formulas and restrictive pressure to cause lymphatic drainage, detoxifying the skin inside and out.
Under the watchful eye of dermatologist Dr. Elizabeth Piantanida, the specialists at Skin MD Colorado harness powerful lasers, medical-grade skincare products, and their own know-how to create custom treatment plans. The services help slow or eliminate hair growth, prompt the birth of new skin cells or collagen, or smooth out wrinkles more easily than having a heart-to-heart with a mirror.
