The Latest Non-Invasive Aesthetic Breakthroughs - Dima Ali, M.D. Your Health Magazine
WellMedica is privileged to be the first aesthetic practice to exclusively introduce two new technologies to the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area. The LIPOLIGHT is the very first LED non-invasive body contouring system.
It consists of pads that are placed directly on the skin for 20 minutes that emit a specific wavelength of light (635nm) that causes fat cells to essentially "collapse." The VENUS FREEZE is the first multipolar radiofrequency and magnetic pulsing device to stimulate the production of collagen by simultaneous thermal and non-thermal mechanisms.
Light therapy is not new. It’s been used for many ailments ranging from chronic pain to wound healing to hair growth. What is new is light being used to target fat cells. After adipose cells were exposed to a specific wavelength, 99% of the fat was released from the cells through a "pore" in the cell membrane. The result? Simply put: inch loss. Impressive spot reduction anywhere on the body including the arms, back, bra bulge, saddlebags, thighs, abdomen, even the breasts – anywhere there is excessive, unwanted fat deposits.
The best part about the LipoLight is there is no bruising, swelling, burning, pain or anesthesia required; essentially NO SIDE EFFECTS!
So what happens to the fat? Once the fat leaves the fat cells, it is transported as free fatty acids to the lymphatic system to be used as energy.
Likewise, radio frequency is not new. However, the Venus Freeze has both captured that technology and combined it synergistically with magnetic pulsing to deliver a pain free way to redefine the jaw line, improve skin laxity, tighten the skin under the arms, even improve the appearance of cellulite considerably.
Visible results appear immediately and will improve over time. The best part is there is NO PAIN and NO DOWNTIME. In fact our patients describe it as "pleasurable as a hot stone massage." Both of these non-invasive technologies have excellent patient outcomes and are great ways to stay looking young naturally. Sounds too good to be true? Well using a neurotoxin to get rid of wrinkles was a bit far-fetched over 10 years ago…
