When done incorrectly, and without professional help, attempts at weight loss can do more harm than good. Quick fixes such as gimmicky diets, or indulging in imaginary buffets with the Lost Boys from the motion-picture classic Hook, can temporarily take away folds, but they usually come back tenfold. With a wealth of medical weight-loss techniques, the team at New Image Weight Loss and Wellness strives to excise unwanted pounds with Zerona LipoLaser treatments, HGC diet programs, diet modifications, and bioidentical hormone therapy for men and women.
Technician Rose uses ultrasound fat- and cellulite-reduction treatments to sculpt her clients? silhouettes. During sessions, non-invasive sound and heat waves work to liquefy fat cells, whose contents are then metabolized through the liver. She advises client after procedures to drink plenty of water, exercise, and avoid fatty foods.
Registered nurse Linell Wagers began her career providing care to those suffering from life-changing and life-ending diseases. It made her very aware of the importance of taking care of your body, and she eventually opened Premier Body Sculpt, which uses noninvasive fat-removal treatments to decrease a client's risk for cardiac disease and diabetes, as well as to boost their confidence.
Technicians at her med spa combat stubborn fat with fat-cell-shrinking ultrasonic-cavitation treatments. The three-in-one ultrasonic treatments use vacuum suction and radio frequency, as well; the vacuum suction helps in the sculpting process of the melted fat cells to the lymphatic drainage, and the radio frequency helps tighten skin.
Premier's technicians also use radio frequency and ultrasonic waves on faces and necks to make skin look tighter than Scrooge McDuck's grip on his wallet. Or they simply correct skin damage with facials and peels.
Beverly Hills Cosmetic Centers' lobby blends cream colored walls and matching marbled tile with dark wood furnishings: a classic combination of colors that hints at luxury. Behind the scenes, however, the team of technicians use techniques that are anything but classic. They wield the latest technology to smooth skin and sculpt bodies, including lasers, ultrasound waves, infrared lights, and fine sprays of crystals. Ultrasonic cavitation, for instance, has proven a popular treatment. Technicians use ultrasonic waves to target fat cells beneath the surface of the skin and eliminate them, just as the Pied Piper coaxed rats from their hiding places with his ultrasonic fiddling, and then made them explode.
The technicians at Beverly Hills Ultra Sculpt Centers target stubborn fat and cellulite with an arsenal of modern med-spa treatments that have been featured on television programs including The Doctors, The Dr. Oz Show, and ABC News. They customize each client's visit, starting with a thorough assessment and discussion of the treatment areas that the client would like to address. A set of "before" pictures allows patrons to monitor their progress during the series of treatments as well as avoid being constantly startled when flipping through all of their old photo albums.
