Lose Your Cellulite, Lose Your Inhibitions

by Oscar Castillo

 

Summer is fast approaching, and there’s no better remedy for the heat than a fun day at the beach. However, there is one thing that keeps millions of individuals from showing up in their favorite swimsuit; insecurity about their body. Predominantly, this is something a lot of women face due to the presence of cellulite. However, there is renewed hope for everyone out there facing this hurdle.

Cellulite is a condition that millions face, and it consists of creased, wrinkled, or lumpy skin mostly in the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks regions. Cellulite takes place when fibers in our muscles interact with the layers of fat between them. This clash leads skin to look uneven, dimpled, and rough. Cellulite can appear in all body types, and although it is more often seen in women, men can suffer it as well. Although often not a serious condition, it can cause embarrassing marks on the skin, which to some, is catalyst for insecurity.

However, there is a special procedure here to help with the condition. It is known as Acoustic Wave Therapy. Not only does it help reduce cellulite, but fat as well. The therapy involves the use of sound waves and is non-invasive, meaning no knives or needles are involved. With the use of a device, therapy professionals are able to target and deliver these waves directly to affected tissue. The resonance helps for the release and flowing of clogs in the skin, excess toxins, and water, leaving in their place smooth, soft skin.

However, not only is the therapy beneficial for cosmetic purposes, but for treating chronic pain and muscular injuries as well. The waves alleviate and loosen up knotted skin, allowing for a variety of uses for sports injuries. By accelerating the body’s natural healing processes, this procedure is beneficial for most body types, although caution should be taken when a patient is pregnant, epileptic, or has an existing skin coagulation or hormonal condition. Definitely check with a physician before opting for this therapy.

The effects of the therapy can last for months, although individual results may vary. With little side effects, it’s a treatment that is too good to pass up on. This summer, don’t be afraid to dust off that cute bathing suit that is sitting in your closet. Wear it proud and be happy with your skin. Lose those inhibitions and don’t let cellulite keep you from that perfect beach moment.

Venus Legacy in Laredo

The Venus Legacy™ is your best option for combating stubborn fat areas. It combines VariPulse™ technology with our proven 3D™ MP2 energy, causing it to travel deeper into the skin resulting in increased blood circulation, immediate plumping, and glowing skin. Results can be seen in as little as one treatment – no pain, discomfort or downtime!

Using patented (MP)² technology, Venus Legacy utilizes multi-polar radio frequency and Pulsed Magnetic fields which produce a soothing and therapeutic heat matrix over the skin. Skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and cellulite reduction occur because the multi-polar radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes the skin to contract, achieving tighter skin, softening of wrinkles .

What is it like to have a treatment? As you lay comfortably on a treatment bed, the technician will apply a treatment gel to the skin. This lotion helps the applicator glide on the surface of your skin. The correct size applicator is selected and the treatment provider will then begin to apply smooth and consistent movements on the surface of the skin. This feels like a wonderful warm massage. We encourage our patients to close their eyes and take this time to just relax and enjoy the quiet and focused time for them.

Skintology staff advises patients that Venus Legacy treatments are non-surgical and relatively pain-free with most patients comparing the treatment to a hot-stone massage. One treatment lasts approximately 30 to 40 minutes and the length of time depends on the area of the body being treated. Skintology staff, further advises that most patients will see results as time passes and the treatments increase. He recommends 6 Venus Legacy treatments to the face, 8 for the neck and 10 for the body.

If you would like toned and tightened skin without surgery and in a pain-free environment visit Skintology Spa, located at 3402 E. Del Mar Blvd. Suite. #200, (956) 727-0950, www.skintologyspa.com

Sculpt perfection into your skin

by Oscar Castillo

Laser technology has advanced tremendously over the past decade. Lasers can not only be used for security purposes, but also as valuable tools for everyday life. They can be as strong as to cut through diamond, or gentle enough to treat one’s skin. In Laredo, Skintology prides itself in keeping up with the new and growing demands. Added to the many items on their repertoire, laser skin care can be checked off, coming in the shape of Skin Resurfacing.

Resurfacing is the process of removing imperfections from the skin with the use of laser treatment. Some of these imperfections include, sun damage, acne marks, blotches, wrinkles, scars, and even age lines. This involves an outpatient procedure, meaning it will not require overnight stay or lengthy recovery time. It is a simple, non-invasive surgery that can have almost immediate results. The process works by the laser beams heating the deep layers of the skin. This, accompanied by pulses, touch on any unwanted pigmentation and blood vessels, smoothening or eliminating them altogether.

Regarding results, these usually include smoother, softer, clearer, and more vibrant skin. Although results can be seen soon after the procedure, it is usually best to follow up with a couple more sessions to ensure that the effects are more effective and lasting. Although it is usually implemented on facial skin, it can be applied to other parts of the skin as well.

Due to so many benefits, it is almost too good not to try this procedure. However, for better results, and for more detailed information on the procedure, it is always better to make an appointment with a physician or dermatologist beforehand. At Skintology, they can help guide patrons to ensure that every safety precaution is taken, and that the procedure is right for them. The best part is that this treatment is all offered locally, so there is no need to travel outside the city to get treated like royalty.
