What is VelaShape III

VelaShape III is a non-invasive body contouring treatment. This treatment shrinks fat cells, smooths cellulite, improves circulation, and results in circumferential reduction. VelaShape uses infrared light which directly heats the targeted area. Bipolar radio frequency guides the heat for faster safe temperatures without damaging the skin and the vacuum elevates the target issue, bringing it closer to the energy source.  These three modalities work together to provide dermal and sub dermal heating, enhancing circulation and lymphatic drainage. Get the figure you’ve been dreaming of with a series of affordable treatments.

How many treatments do I need?

VelaShape III is completed in a series. The number of treatments vary depending on the desired results. Typically skin tightening/toning requires 3 to 4 treatments. Cellulite reduction typically requires at least 6 treatments.

When can I see improvement?

You will begin to notice gradual improvement of the treated area right away as your skin’s surface starts to feel smoother and firmer. Over time you will also notice a smaller circumference throughout the treated area as well as a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.  Best results will be seen at about 10 weeks.

Are there any side effects?

The VelaShape III treatment is safe and effective for all skin types. The treatment works with heat therefore the treated areas skin temperature will rise. You may experience a bit of tenderness and may slightly bruise post treatments.   It is important to be well hydrated before and after treatment.

Are the results permanent?

Following your treatment regimen, it is recommended that you receive maintenance treatments every 2 to 3 months.  Like all techniques, invasive or non-invasive, results vary depending on the physical condition of the skin and body. Results will last longer if you follow a balanced diet and exercise regimen.

Can I have tanned skin?

Because your skin is being heated it is best not be have a new tan. When you tan your skin is dry and damaged therefore adding heat to it can cause further damage. You should also not be spray tanned due to the spray clogging the machine.

Do you want natural looking eyebrows?

Comments Off on Do you want natural looking eyebrows?

Many of us are not blessed with the perfect eyebrow and with the ever changing beauty trends it is hard to know what’s in thin, full, or arched brows. There is now a new tattoo technique that will give you the look you desire and the look that many will not know is a tattoo. Microblading uses a hand-held tattoo pen with a unique blade to create very fine, precise hair like strokes. This technique offers a very natural looking brow. Older techniques can look stamped or be too thick. With microblading the pigment is placed more superficially in the skin therefore, results will last a year to 18 months, making it the ideal treatment with this ever-changing eyebrow phenomenon that we are obsessed with.

Our aesthetician Rose has performed brow tattooing for over 15 years and is highly qualified to perform microblading.

Call today for your free consultation and let Rose help you achieve the perfect brow.

Laser Hair Removal – Get Ready for Summer

Laser hair removal is a wonderful procedure that removes unsightly hair on all areas of the body. However, if you are entering into your first treatment, you may be wondering what to expect. What areas can be treated, how many treatments will you need and “ouch”, does it hurt? Our office operates the Lumenis LightSheer Duet, which is a state-of-the-art laser hair removal system and one of the most advanced in the market. It has a multi-tip system allowing for faster virtually pain free treatments on larger areas, such as the legs and back. And, a smaller tip for quick effective treatment of the smaller areas such as lip, underarm and bikini area.  Patients receive a complimentary consultation to learn more about laser hair removal prior to treatment.

Treatments can completed on nearly any area of the body including legs, underarms, back and bikini. Regardless of the area being treated, the technician will consult with you on the various treatment protocol and costs prior to treatment. Patients should plan on having 6 treatments per area for maximum results, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Most of our patients can expect to see approximately 80% hair loss after the first 3 treatments alone. The technicians will also go over other safety protocol and urge to patients to stay out of the sun prior to and following immediate treatment, which is why laser hair removal is most popular in the winter.

It is very common for our female patients to receive hair removal treatments of the face, especially if they have darker colored hair growing caused by hormonal issues such as pregnancy.  One of the other popular areas for our female patients is bikini treatments. A simple bikini line treatment will constitute the area outside of the panty line where hair can often grow. From there, there are different bikini packages offered to remove more hair, all the way up to complete.  If you are a women who has been receiving bikini waxes for a long time, this will be a welcomed change to be hair free following the treatment series.

However, when it comes to men, they typically lean towards laser hair removal of the back, chest or smaller areas like the fingers or ears. Treatments of large areas such as a full mans back, can be completed in less than an hour and will be virtually pain free. The treatments cause very minimal discomfort and do not require any downtime. The treatment area will be slightly pink and may have mild puffiness following treatment, which will subside in a few hours. For more information or questions call the reception team at 248-524-3622 to schedule a complimentary consultation. We look forward to assisting you with your treatment needs.

Spider Vein Treatment (Telangiectasias) – Show those beautiful legs!

We are pleased to announce that our office is now offering TREATMENT OF SPIDER VEINS. Spider veins are typically small and normally occur in clusters or groups so they can be very noticeable. Most spider veins can be successfully treated with good cosmetic results and the procedure is virtually painless. If you are concerned about Spider Veins on your legs, speak with the front desk about scheduling a complimentary consultation with Dr Clarissa Kroese to learn more about the treatment options.

WHAT ARE SPIDER VEINS AND WHY DO I HAVE THEM? Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small, thin veins that lie close to the surface of the skin. Although these very fine veins are connected with the larger venous system, they are not essential to normal function. A number of factors contribute to the development of spider veins including heredity, pregnancy/ hormonal shifts and occupations or activities that require prolonged standing or sitting.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR SPIDER VEINS (TELANGIECTASIAS)? Sclerotherapy is the gold standard for treatment of spider veins. Using a very fine (tiny) needle, a solution is injected into the spider veins. This causes irritation, closure and eventually spider veins will fade and disappear.

WHERE WILL I RECEIVE THE TREATMENT? Right here at the office.

Please feel free to call 248.524.0620 if you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment for spider vein treatment.


Permanent Makeup Creates A Beautiful Look All Day

We often get questions about permanent makeup – what areas are most common, what’s the benefit, is it really permanent? At the spa we often see clients who are interested in permanent eyeliner, lip liner, or eyebrows with a beautiful natural look as the end result. The most touching and meaningful area is areola enhancement for women who have undergone breast surgery or a mastectomy – all with a common goal to restore their femininity and natural appearance by reconstructing their breasts.

New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast. After undergoing the surgical procedure, creating the nipple/areola is the final component to making your breast reconstruction complete; our permanent areola/nipple repigmentation techniques uses cosmetically tattooed micropigmentation as a way to restore the natural beauty of your breasts. It takes into consideration breast contour, areola position and creates the illusion of nipple protrusion factoring in your own skin tone and color.

The reconstruction of the nipple/areola helps to put the finishing touches on the new breast after a long journey in reconstruction. All of the options would be discussed during your consultation. For most mastectomy patients, breast reconstruction and areola tattooing dramatically improves their appearance and quality of life following surgery.

Contact the spa reception staff 248-524-3622 to set an appointment to discuss your options regarding permanent makeup.
