Madame et Monsieur's non-invasive, FDA-approved ElectroSlim technology helps clients get buff. Electrodes attached to the target area deliver electronic pulses that stimulate more than 1,000 muscle contractions in a single one-hour session. The soothing procedure feels like a deep-tissue massage, but delivers the muscle-building results of a serious sweat session. ElectroSlim can tone specific areas that normal exercise doesn't reach as well as burning away excess amounts of fat, redefining the client's overall body shape.
The certified aestheticians at Anti-Aging Center buttress worn down human forms with facials, anti-aging clinics, and body treatments. Clients who choose the power wrap lie in a warmed, high-tech cocoon in which far infrared technology accosts the body with a salutary barrage of minerals and light signals. Designed to reduce cellulite, anxiety, pain, fibromyalgia, and to detoxify cells, the treatment has been described as relaxing and highly beneficial to personal health, similar to chewing on medical textbooks. Alternately, a microdermabrasion treatment works as an aesthetician assiduously sloughs away dead skin cells with a DiamondTome Wand (a $95 value). A hydrating eye treatment (a $25 value) supervenes, leaving seeing apparatuses fresh and moist, like a pre-dawn summer yard that has the ability to see.
