We want you to feel confident showing off your flawless skin this summer with the help of these non-invasive treatments.
Uneven, lumpy skin texture, known as cellulite, is a common concern for many women — especially during the summer months. The appearance of cellulite is caused by fatty tissue pushing up through fibrous bands against the skin. The condition typically worsens as we age due to the skin gradually thinning and losing elasticity, making the dimpled appearance more noticeable. Cellulite can negatively affect self confidence and body image, which is why treatment is so sought after.
If you are looking to reduce the appearance of cellulite, then continue reading to learn more about PelleFirm Cellulite Treatment.
PelleFirm is a non-invasive cellulite treatment that utilizes radio-frequency energy along with a massage to deeply heat tissues in the body and temporarily smooth out the appearance of cellulite.
During the treatment, a technician will use specialized hand pieces, in combination with massage heads, to deliver radio waves into the skin’s surface. This heated massage facilitates movement of fluids which are then naturally removed by the body’s lymphatic system.
PelleFirm is a safe, pain-free procedure that doesn’t require any downtime. Previous patients have reported that the experience feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. Following the procedure you might experience slight redness, which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during treatment, and will subside soon afterwards.
Stretch marks are another common skin condition caused by the stretching of skin during a short period of time. Rapid weight gain and pregnancy can all result in the appearance of these pesky lines on the body. The most common areas for stretch marks include the abdomen, thighs, breasts, hips, and upper arms.
Although stretch marks are normal and nothing to be ashamed of, you may be looking for a way to smooth them out and minimize their appearance. At Aqua Vitality, we offer Laser Stretch Mark Removal to do just that!
This effective treatment uses fractional laser technology to break down stretch marks and stimulate the production of new collagen to improve smoothness and get rid of redness.
Laser stretch mark removal works by delivering pulsed energy to the skin to target discoloration and trigger new tissue production underneath the skin. The added collagen will help to smooth out the texture of the stretch marks as well as reduce pigmentation.
Each session can be performed in about 30 minutes and requires little-to-no downtime. Between three to five sessions are typically required in order to fully smooth out the skin.
Schedule a consultation with one of our physicians in order to determine the number of sessions needed to achieve your desired result.
Laser technology can also be used to treat a variety of other skin concerns including pigmentation spots, rosacea, broken capillaries, spider veins, wrinkles, and more.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Skin Rejuvenation is a safe and effective treatment to improve skin texture and hyperpigmentation that is both FDA- and TGA-approved.
IPL Laser Skin Rejuvenation works by delivering intense light from a range of wavelengths on the parts of skin that you want to treat. The heat from the light destroys the pigment of the spots you want to remove while also triggering collagen production.
The length of the treatment depends on the size and scope of the selected area. On average, treatment takes about half an hour and requires zero need for recovery. An eye mask will be provided to ensure your vision is protected from the lasers and a topical gel will be applied to the skin to prevent any overheating that may occur.
To protect your skin after any procedure or treatment, especially during the summer time, we recommend liberally applying sunscreen every four hours to ensure your skin stays flawless. This is because the sun’s rays can damage collagen and cause hyperpigmentation making cellulite, stretch marks, and other spots more noticeable.
At AquaVitae, we carry a range of ZO Skin Health sunscreen that offer Triple Spectrum Protection for a variety of skin types. All of the sunscreen products are non-irritating, ultra-lightweight, and provide protection from UVA/UVB and IRA-A rays, as well as HEV light that emits from mobile devices and computers. If you want your skin to stay flawless, don’t forget to lather on the SPF all summer (and winter) long!
This summer you can feel confident taking off that cover-up! Our goal at Aqua Vitae is to help you feel comfortable in your own skin by recommending a treatment that is best for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your specific skin concerns with our medical staff. We can’t wait to help you achieve the smooth, glowing skin so you can feel like the summer goddess that you are.
