WHAT IS PLUS?
Plus uses fractionated radio-frequency energy to stimulate collagen production for body remodeling. After Plus treatments you can achieve a more youthful and toned skin contour making your body appear smoother, sexier and younger.
IS PLUS FOR ME?
Plus is recommended for individuals who are looking for a non-invasive skin treatment to address targeted areas that require contraction. Plus can be used to reduce texture irregularities in lax skin to provide a lifted appearance. Plus is safe and can be used on all skin types and tones.
WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE AND FEEL?
During treatment, most patients will feel a heat sensation and “feel” tighter. Over time patients typically notice a reduction in the folds of their skin leading to a smoother contour of the body. Textural irregularities will even out and sagging skin will appear more toned.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Plus can be used on parts of the body that may need contraction after the effects of weight gain/loss or general aging. Most common areas of treatment include the abdomen, arms (bat wings), inner thighs, outer thighs, back fat and knees.
WILL IT HURT?
Plus is essentially painless and has no downtime; it feels like a hot stone massage. Patients may see slight redness in the treated area, which will lessen within a few hours. All patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
Typically, weekly sessions are recommended over a six to eight week period. Individuals with mild laxity may be treated in fewer sessions with more weeks between each treatment. Scheduling should be based on a pre-evaluation. Best results will be noticed over time or after a series of treatments.
WHAT IS MINIFX?
MiniFX is a new non-invasive solution to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite. MiniFX targets small areas requiring fat and cellulite treatment.
HOW DOES MINIFX WORK?
MiniFX uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including Radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure. The Radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissues to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful shaping results.
HOW SAFE IS THE TREATMENT?
A series of RF energy is delivered by a succession of pulses at 1 million cycles per second. While this may sound intense, it is very safe. To maximize comfort, the temperature will be constantly monitored, with ongoing accurate feedback of the skin’s temperature. This thermal monitoring provides the utmost in temperature control.
DOES IT HURT?
Most users find MiniFX comfortable. During treatment, you can expect a warming of your skin and gentle pulling sensation as the radio-frequency and vacuum work to smooth out unwanted stubborn pockets of fat.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED?
It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed over an eight week period. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first few treatments – with the skin’s surface feeling smoother and softer immediately.
WHAT KIND OF POST PROCEDURE CARE IS REQUIRED?
There is absolutely no downtime for MiniFX. It can be a lunchtime procedure. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from their regular activities.

How Cellutone Works:
Cellutone uses energy that goes over the skin to break apart and soften tissue, working like a lymphatic massage. It increases blood supply, lymphatic flow, metabolism and helps soften the area, giving an improved appearance to lumpy or bumpy skin. The result: a smoother, more firm appearance of the skin, and a more confident you!

WHAT IS VASCULAZE?
The appearance of veins can be unsightly, causing both women and men to seek treatment options. Lesions can be very visible (long and bulging) or spider veins, which are smaller, finer and shorter (lines or web-like). Vasculaze can help alleviate a wide variety of facial and leg vein issues with a laser that is targeted to treat the blood vessel causing the blemish. Vasculaze has an specially designed head that is built to pinpoint the vein or vein network, making treatments precise and safe. The technology in the Vasculaze sends pulses of light onto the vein, which makes the vein slowly fade and disappear, preventing the need for unpleasant incisions and needles.
WHAT TYPES OF VEINS CAN BE TREATED?
Your aesthetic provider will need to do an assessment of your vascular lesions. In general, the recommended types of vascular veins to treat are: facial and spider veins, port wine stains, leg veins, telangiectasias and angiomas. Varicose veins are typically larger and are not suitable for Vasculaze.
AREAS OF TREATMENT
More common areas of Vasculaze treatment include: face, décolleté, arms, upper thighs, back of thighs, and the lower legs.
HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE REQUIRED
Typically three sessions are performed, however, some lesions may require more. Gradual improvements in the treatment area can be seen following the first treatment – with the skin’s surface looking clearer as treatments progress.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY?
Fortunately, Vasculaze treatments don’t mean a hospital stay or a long, uncomfortable recovery. Vasculaze is a quick procedure, taking only a few seconds per vein treated. Patients can come into the office and leave within minutes, depending on how extensive the vein or vein network is. Please speak to your aesthetic provider about activities that will encourage increased blood flow, like heavy exercise, as they may request you wait a few days to a week depending on the area you had treated.
