Pregnancy can cause stretch marks and saggy skin, as babies demand more space for the expansive jigsaw puzzles and magazine collections that help them pass time before birth. Undo damage from time-killing tots with today's Groupon: for $999, you get 12 baby-belly-reduction sessions at Bye Bye Baby Belly (a $2,500 value).
Within private treatment rooms, Bye Bye Baby Belly can help new moms and those who've recently lost weight reduce the appearance of saggy skin, stretch marks, and fatty deposits. Soma shapers attend 12 one-hour sessions, ideally spaced every two days. During each treatment, the noninvasive Beautytek system works to tighten skin, fade skin squiggles, and shed fat by using low-frequency electrical impulses intended to stimulate the body's own natural healing mechanisms and internal day spas. An electrode placed on the patient's body emits the low-frequency waves, which are less aggressive than those produced by the human heart but more powerful than those emitted by artichoke hearts.
The computerized treatment helps the body balance its energy levels to increase blood circulation, dehydrate fats, and boost tissue repair. Designed to work quickly and require no downtime, the system can help patients regain a prepregnancy look in four to six weeks. Patients may also experience beneficial side effects in the form of skin tightening on body areas other than the torso, including the face, neck, back, and peg leg.
Natural Body Contouring of Austin
Kathy Bates has read a novel's worth of scribbled doctor's prescriptions in her malady-marred life. One was for her seizure in 1978, another for her severe post-childbirth ailments in 1988, and a final one for her broken spine and subsequent back injury in 1994. This pain- and frustration-filled journey instilled Bates with two things: a distrust of overprescribed drugs and an unwavering commitment to well-being.
At Natural Body Contouring of Austin, Bates uses holistic cables to jump-start healthful lifestyles, especially following childbirth. Her method of choice is the BeautyTek Belly Reducer, which emits a low-frequency electrical current that can help turn on the body's natural healing mechanisms when they are thrown off by pregnancy or turned off by the electrical company. The noninvasive treatment can result in tighter skin, diminished stretch marks, and vanquished fatty deposits. Her background in massage therapy imbues each step of the treatment with a concern for physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
