We have all been through the diet roller coaster and have often seen the weight we lost come back. Or, we may have failed to meet our goals due to stubborn fat that just wont go away. Chances are that these "problem areas" don't respond to diet and exercise due to having more fat cells in that area than in the surrounding areas. When we diet or exercise we burn calories and our bodies then use fat storage for the energy we need to fuel our bodies. Unfortunately, we do not get to choose where that fuel (fat) comes from. Our targeted fat reduction and cellulite treatments allow you target the area you want to work on. Our fat cells are much like balloons. They expand when we take in too many calories and they shrink when we burn an excess of calories helping us burn that unwanted fat...but those fat cells are still there ready to fill back up after your favorite desert. Much like liposuction, after your body contouring treatments your fat cells are destroyed and removed from your body preventing those cells from ever filling back up in the treated area, but without the need for surgery and at a fraction of the cost.
EMSlim is an FDA-cleared electromagnetic energy device approved for fat reduction and building muscle while administering Radio Frequency that tightens the skin and reduces fat content. In six independent trials it was found that EMSlim reduces unwanted fat storage to the treated area by about 19% while increasing muscle mass in the area by 16%. This is achieved thought the high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy that triggers what's called supramaximal contractions which cannot be achieved by voluntary muscle action. This happens at a rate of about 20,000 contractions in a period of just 30 minutes. That's like doing 20,000 sit-ups or squats in 30 minutes! This intense "workout" causes the muscles in the area to release large amounts of fatty acids that then target and kill the fat cells which are then metabolized and flushed from your body as waste. These results cannot be achieved through diet and exercise since we have no control over where our body burns fat from to be used as an energy source. Doing sit-ups does not mean you will burn fat from your abdomen and that is what is so great about EMSlim, you get to target the areas you want to see results in. Our treatments allow you to target your abdomen, arms, legs and buttocks.
Another benefit to using EMSlim over treatments such as CoolSculpting, light therapies or even liposuction is that EMSlim builds muscle. This muscle will help tighten up the area taking inches off the treated area and increase your strength, tone, and even posture. Muscle also burns fat. Building muscle is a natural way to increase metabolism which leads to helping you maintain and even increase fat loss. Just by having the procedure and adding the average of 16% of muscle to the area you will continue to burn more calories in a sedentary state than before your EMSlim treatments. Combining EMSlim with a healthy eating and active lifestyle has proven to have benefits far beyond those achieved through dieting alone.
The EMSlim treatments cannot be performed on anyone with a pacemaker, or anyone with metal implants near the treatment site including metal IUD's. Coolsculpting and Cavi-Lipo would be the appropriate choice for someone with implants that wants to receive body contouring treatments in Portland.
Cryolipolysis or the more commonly recognized by its branded name CoolSculpting, is a cosmetic treatment that removes excess unwanted fat in stubborn areas. It works by freezing fat cells, killing and breaking them down in the process. Fat cells are more affected by cold temperatures than other cells. This means that the cold does not damage other cells, such as the skin or underlying tissue. When you come in for your appointment our esthetician will use the appropriately contoured hand piece to vacuum the skin above the area of fatty tissue into an applicator that cools the fat cells. The cold temperatures numb the site, and some people report feeling a cooling sensation. While the side effects are minimal and not common, some people report soreness at the site being treated, similar to that they might have after an intense workout or minor muscle injury. Others report stinging, firmness, mild discoloration, swelling, and itchiness which go away on their own typically within 2-12 days. Now that the procedure is completed our bodies get to work and begin to remove the damaged fat cells and all of their contents through our lymphatic system. This will continue over the next 4-6 months where final results can then be seen. Studies have shown that the first 30 days after treatment clients have seen an average of a 21% fat reduction to the treated area with the most noticeable results shown during the first 3 months. Multiple treatments can continue to be performed to the same area as often as 3 weeks apart continuing to break down additional fat cells increasing the results as desired.
This process is FDA approved for fat removal and has been used since 2010 to aid in the removal of unwanted stubborn body fat. As the original body contouring treatment approved by the FDA it is also the most popular. This is a completely noninvasive procedure with no recovery time or preparation needed prior to the procedure. This procedure, like our other body contouring options, has far less risks than liposuction and can be done at a fraction of the costs in Portland. Our equipment is state of the art having 5 hand pieces that can be pared with the area of the body receiving the treatment. Many models have 1 hand piece requiring those that want to address their flanks or love handles to come in for 2 treatments since only one could be treated at a time. These hand pieces also do not align with the shape and characteristics of the area being treated. Our equipment allows us to treat both flanks, both love handles, or both arms at the same time reducing the number of sessions needed. By using our c-shaped hand pieces designed to fit your shape we are able to achieve 30% more tissue contact further increasing the amount of fat loss compared to other models. For under the chin fat removal, we have a special hand piece designed specifically for treatments in that area yielding optimal fat removal and the return to a single chin state…because we believe having one chin is enough.
This procedure is not safe for anyone with cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.
The Ultrasonic Cavitation RF fat removal treatment also known as Cavi-Lipo is an FDA approved treatment for fat reduction which adopts ultrasonic waves to remove fat from the targeted area while administering Radio Frequency that tightens the skin while also removing fat. This revolutionary treatment can give the results previously only seen through surgical procedure including liposuction without the risk, pain and cost of surgery. By administering high frequency acoustic waves, it produces the Cavitation effect to blast the fat cells and even eliminate cellulite. This happens as the ultrasonic waves create micro bubbles in fat cells causing them to release the fatty liquids as well as become damaged. Our body then recognized this fatty liquid and the damaged cells as waste which it then removes from our body permanently. This treatment is painless and requires no downtime and is safe for all skin types. Treatments can be done to any part of the body and is our most effective treatment for addressing unwanted fat in areas that do not typically have muscle mass as needed for our EMSlim treatments. Examples include love handles, Bra fat on the back, under the chin eliminating that second chin. The treatment is also perfect for those that have cellulite but do not want to build muscle in the area like the back of their legs, lower abdomen, arms, and even chest. This treatment is extremely versatile and can be adjusted to address most any area of concern. In addition to using ultrasonic waves to blast away fat, the machine also uses Radio Frequency (RF) to tighten the skin and induce collagen and elastin production that will tighten the skin ensuring that once the fat is removed the treated area will look its very best.
The EMSlim treatments cannot be performed on anyone with a pacemaker, or anyone with metal implants near the treatment site including metal IUD's. Coolsculpting and Cavil-Lipo would be the appropriate choice for someone with implants that wants to receive body contouring treatments.

Your esthetician has full control over the settings and they will start low and then increase to a level that you are comfortable with while achieving the maximum results.
Some have reported feeling a little sore in the area for 24 hours while others say the next day they feel no discomfort at all. There are no post treatment requirements for these procedures. Those that receive coolscultping may feel soreness in the area for up to 2 weeks but this is not common.

EMSlim and Cavi-Lipo are both non-invasive and require no recovery time.Both treatment options are a great option for many patients because they don’t have to prep for treatment or follow any kind of post-care plan. Some patients experience mild soreness, but nothing as intense as what you would feel from a traditional workout.
You will begin to feel results immediately after EMSlim . These will be small changes, like posture improvements of decreased fatigue during exercise. Most patients are noticing visible results around three months post-treatment, and maintain results with a maintenance plan. Clinical studies have shown that results can continue to improve for up to six months.
This treatment can potentially help you get rid of 25% of body fat in any one treatment area. If this treatment is used on the belly area, for example, you can reduce the amount of fat there by at least 20% to 30%, which translates to several inches off your waistline.
After 8 to 10 weeks, about 90% of the targeted fat cells may have been removed, but for some, the result can continue to develop for 6 months. CoolSculpting can also be safely repeated in the same area with the procedures spaced about 3 weeks apart.
Fat cells compromised by anyone of our body contouring treatments become a waste product and then are processed by the lymphatic system and eliminated from the body permanently. These fat cells will not be regenerated by the body.
No there should be no pain. Most describe the EMSlim treatment as "weird" or even at times "uncomfortable" as your muscles are contracting and holding the contraction for lengths of time we are not used to. Others have told us that it relaxes them. Patients report feeling a pulling sensation as the muscles contract. However your esthetician can adjust the setting to ensure you get the most out of your treatment while staying within your comfort zone. With Cavi-Lipo you will feel no discomfort at all.
Not exactly. They both are treatments that allow you to target areas to contour and they both produce positive results when it comes to fat loss. CoolSculpting targets stubborn fat and freezes the fat in order for the cells to be destroyed and flushed out of your body. EMSlim also targets fat lass but does does not freeze the fat, Instead it focuses on building muscle in a way that also burns fat though the use of high-intensity focused electromagnetic energy.
Immediately after the treatment your body will begin flushing out fat from the treated area and results will begin to be seen in a matter of days. With each treatment the results will become more obvious. You can expect to see your final results about three months after your last treatment session, but the rate at which results appear depends on how effective your body's lymphatic system is at flushing out the damaged cells
The fat cells are not just deflated like you experience when dieting. The cells are actually destroyed and then flushed from your body. The destroyed fat cells do not grow back.
