Body Contouring Technologies (5 days – 30 hours)
One area of great interest in the scientific community right now is the non-invasive improvement of the contour of the body. A number of very exciting technologies are currently in development which are showing great promise for reducing fat deposits in a safe and effective way. Typically these non-invasive procedures require a number of treatment sessions and will gradually cause a reduction in the waist size and an improved contour of the skin in general, and in many cases an improvement of cellulite as well.
It is essential that the body contouring clinician working in the medi spa understand how these technologies are applied and how the body reacts to their use. The non-invasive body contouring course covers some of the most popular technologies and applications in the market today : The body contouring technologies course covers the following methods:
Laser & IPL
Laser and IPL skin tightening offers many of the same results as plastic surgery without the lengthy recovery time. IPL therapy is one of the most popular non-surgical face lifts. While the procedure cannot remove excess skin, clients experience tightening of loose skin immediately, with less wrinkles in the treated area. IPL skin tightening requires no recovery time after treatment because it is a non-surgical procedure that involves no incisions
Radio Frequency Body Contouring
This non-surgical treatment uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to penetrate the skin - without damaging the outer layers - to contour the body and reduce the appearance of cellulite and fat. It breaks down fatty cells and stimulates collagen production, which improves skin tone and elasticity.
Ultrasonic Body Contouring
The focused ultrasound waves are delivered in short bursts of energy, or pulses, to destroy fat cells while leaving surrounding tissue, nerves and blood vessels unaffected, as well as protecting the outside layers of the skin.
