EMSculpt® Body Sculpting
What if you could get the effects of 20,000 sit-ups without having to do a single crunch? That’s exactly what BTL EMSculpt® technology accomplishes in a convenient 30-minute session!
This amazing machine uses carefully controlled High-intensity Focused Electromagnetic® (HIFEM) technology to trigger supramaximal (involuntary) contractions in targeted muscle groups. By applying this electromagnetic energy to areas such as the abdomen or buttocks, EMSculpt® stimulates muscles to contract involuntarily at a rate and depth that can’t be achieved through a sit-up or crunch. The tissue is forced to adapt to these conditions, building muscle rapidly while burning fat.
EMSculpt® technology has been clinically tested and is FDA-approved to help burn stubborn fat while building and toning muscle. It’s like getting a full workout in without ever having to break a sweat, perfect for shaping muscle groups that simply won’t respond to exercise. Get killer abs or a popping booty in no time!
CoolSculpting® Body Contouring
CoolSculpting® technology uses cryolipolysis to literally freeze and get rid of those stubborn fat cells that refuse to quit, even after a thousand crunches. CoolSculpting® offers a completely non-invasive alternative to surgery or liposuction, directly targeting fat cells with freezing temperatures to break them down safely and efficiently.
Adipose tissue—the more official name for those stubborn fat cells—is more susceptible to cold temperatures than the other cells in your body. CoolSculpting® takes advantage of this weakness, using an applicator to vacuum skin above the fatty deposit. This applicator then cools the targeted cells, causing the fat to literally freeze. As the fat cells thaw, their cellular structure breaks down. These cells can’t protect themselves the way your skin or nerves do, and your body then removes them naturally, as it would other damaged or dead cells.
In a single treatment, CoolSculpting® can reduce 20 to 25% of targeted fat cells. It’s that simple!
Cynosure Elite+® Laser System
The Elite+® laser system by Cynosure is designed to provide a wide range of treatments with a single machine, including medical-grade laser hair removal, vascular treatments, epidermal pigmentation issues, and even wrinkle reduction.

Using Nd:YAG 1064nm and Alexandrite 755nm wavelengths, the Elite+® can quickly and easily switch between both for unmatched versatility, even in the middle of a treatment session. Longer pulse durations (up to 300ms) allow the Elite+® to precisely match the energy it is delivering to your skin with optimal thermal relaxation time. NdYAG technology is safe for dark and tanned skin and hair, while Alexandrite technology is safe for lighter skin tones and hair colours.

Vectus® can more effectively treat larger spot sizes in less time, which means more bang for your buck.

PicoSure® Laser System

In layman’s terms, PicoSure® can deliver laser pulses at a much more efficient speed, making it easier than ever to revitalize your skin and reduce the appearance of scars, pigment lesions, and wrinkles. Did we mention is also makes tattoo removal a breeze?
Using incredibly short (a picosecond or less) bursts of concentrated energy at a755nm wavelength, PicoSure® can more effectively target tattoo inks of all colours, shattering ink particles into dust that your body then clears naturally. PicoSure® delivers appropriate concentrations of energy in a trillionth of a second, reducing the amount of time your skin is exposed to this energy and thus targeting tattoo ink more effectively. This means faster, more effective tattoo removal without scarring!
