56 @dayspamagazine • Januar y 2019 FROM TOP: © GETTY IMAGES; COURTESY BELIA SKIN AND BEAUTY SPA RISE OF THE MACHINES CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis, has become a major name in aesthetics since its arrival in 2010. The FDA-cleared, nonsurgical fat reduction and body contouring measure targets and freezes fat tissue to -11 degrees Celsius, reducing fat by 20 to 30 percent in one treatment, explains Haman. "Over time, the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates those dead cells, leaving a more sculpted result," he says. Measurement changes vary depending on the patient and the number of areas treated, but results can be seen after two months (typically, one to three treatments are recommended to achieve the ideal outcome). CoolSculpting procedures can be administered to different areas using different applicators. For instance, BHRC now uses CoolAdvantage (35 min./$500-$750), which halves the session time and is more comfortable for clients. "We also provide DualSculpting ($500-$750 per applicator) to treat multiple areas at once, as well as CoolMini for smaller areas, such as under the chin or behind the knees," adds Haman. "Typically, you can get results in one treatment, although it can take 20 to 30 days for the fat to drain." Another option offered at BHRC is BTL Exilis Ultra ($200-$500 per session/area), which simultaneously delivers radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound, smoothing skin and reducing the look of cellulite. Haman notes that ultrasound allows the technician to go deeper, while RF kills fat cells and stimulates collagen production and cell turnover, which helps skin become fi rmer, thicker and more youthful- looking. Clients receive skin tightening, fat reduction and body contouring, with optimal results over three to four treatments. "For skin tightening, 41 to 43 degrees Celsius is ideal, and to kill fat cells, the temperature must be over 43 degrees," says Haman. "RF without cooling targets the dermis and the epidermis to help tighten skin, but the cooling applicator allows the RF to penetrate deeper to 2.5 centimeters, which can reduce underlying fat cells." Similarly, InMode Forma and Body FX ($200-$500 per session/area) uses RF at temperatures between 41 and 43 degrees to kill fat cells and tighten skin. With so many options available, BHRC specializes in combination treatments, designing a customized plan for each guest with a multi-pronged approach to achieve the best results—and showcases its work by posting before and after photos on social media. "People love to see results when considering aesthetic treatments, and before and after photos give a clear idea of what transformations look like at BHRC," notes Haman. "They also attract prospective clients by allowing them to easily look through our portfolio, share with friends and learn more about our offerings." At Belia Skin and Beauty Spa in Las Vegas, the contouring Cavitation Treatment (30-90 min./$50- $250) features three modalities for skin tightening: ultrasound, RF and nanocurrent. "The RF creates heat when it penetrates into the dermis, melting the fat; nanocurrent tightens skin and contracts muscle; and the ultrasonic frequency pushes melted fat away from the surface so that it's easily dissolved," explains owner Lia Yulianti. "It's great for tackling loose skin after liposuction or CoolSculpting treatments." Techs advise clients to visit once weekly for a series of six sessions, which the spa sells as a package: buy fi ve, get one free. The service can also be implemented on smaller areas, including the neck and jawline. COMBINATION TREATMENTS CUSTOMIZED FOR EACH GUEST YIELD THE BEST RESULTS. SHAPE SHIFTERS Belia Skin and Beauty Spa's Cavitation Treatment combines ultrasound, RF and nanocurrent to melt fat and tighten skin.
