Foot Detoxification

Overview

Water is of particular importance to the functional performance of the body. Water makes up about two thirds of the body's weight and it is used as a solvent in which chemical reactions take place: as a solvent for waste matter which passes out of the body in a solution; for transporting substances around the body (water is a major part of blood and lymph); and as a means of keeping cool. Back in the 1930's Dr Royal Rife conducted research, which concluded that certain electrical frequencies could prevent the development of disease, while other electrical frequencies can completely destroy certain viruses, bacteria and other pathogens. Since then further developments in the study of energy field medicine has enabled us to present the Aqua Detox machine, which has been available in the UK since January 2002.

How It Works

The user of the system places the feet in a bath of luke warm water that has a small amount of salt added, in the form of a solution, which aids the conductivity of the water. When the system is switched on, the array immersed in water creates a series of positive and negative ions - electrons. The body will absorb the electrons and a natural rebalancing of the cells in the body will take place.

While you are relaxing, the water will immediately start to change color as millions of ions enter your body and begin to neutralize tissue acid wastes. The color change and sediment you see in the water is produced by the ionization interaction of the current flow; the metal in the array and the toxins in the water and body. Negative and positive ions attract toxins and are released from the body via OSMOSIS. This has a very effective way of cleansing the body from heavy metals and other toxins. The benefits of the Aqua Detox system are, detoxification, stimulation and balancing of the body's energy meridans, and ATP production. ATP has natural body chemicals that extracts energy from your food and makes it available for numerous physiologic functions in the body. You will feel great, sleep better, and have more energy and improved outlook in life.

Injectables and Fillers

Overview

If you would like to restore facial contours or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; injection therapy with soft tissue fillers or Botox®/Dysport® may be right for you. Injectable fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of recessed scars.

Procedural Steps

A pharmaceutical filler substance or your own fat is injected below the skin surface to fill hollow areas and creases, or plump the lips and back of the hands. If fat is used it is typically taken from the inner thigh or abdomen, and may require anesthesia. Botox®/Dysport® is usually injected after a local anesthetic has been placed on the skin. It is injected into the muscles that produce facial wrinkles.

Your Results

Swelling should dissipate in 2 to 5 days, or 1 to 2 weeks with fat injections. This procedure produces temporary results, lasting a few months to several years or more, based on the filler used, treatment site and individual patient factors. Some products may be permanent.

We Offer

Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the browse.

Dysport® is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age. Dysport® is a purified formulation that has been shown to deliver temporary improvements in moderate to severe frown lines, even with repeat treatments. So, the effect of repeat treatment with Dysport® may be comparable to your first use.

Juvéderm® Ultra XC is the smooth gel filler that your doctor uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you’ll get smooth and natural-looking results that can last up to a year. Juvéderm® Ultra XC is manufactured using HYLACROSS™ technology, creating a smooth-consistency gel. It is infused with lidocaine to improve comfort during treatment. With Juvéderm® Ultra XC you get the smooth results you expect, with the improved comfort you want.

Perlane-L® has lidocaine added to it to reduce discomfort during injection. Just like Restylane-L®, Perlane-L® adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Like Restylane-L®, Perlane-L® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to add fullness like your body’s own hyaluronic acid. What makes Perlane-L® different is the average size of the particles and the depth of injection. On average, the gel particles in Perlane-L® are larger than those in Restylane-L®, which makes Perlane-L® a good choice for wrinkles that benefit from a deeper injection into the skin.

Radiesse® Upon injection, RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging because of the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. But what's unique about RADIESSE Volumizing Filler is that it acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effect of RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler. Best of all, the natural results are clinically proven to last a year or more in many patients, which is why more and more cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and other medical professionals are choosing RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler to achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation. Treatment with RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is quick, comfortable and convenient, with immediately visible, long-lasting results.

Restylane-L® has lidocaine added to it to reduce discomfort during injection. It adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane-L® works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane-L® is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid. So, you can use Restylane-L® to visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds for a younger-looking you.

Ion Magnum

Overview

Magnum is the next generation of the Arasys -- This treatment provides an effortless workout that gets you straight to the fat burning stage without the gym burnout. The Ion Magnum procedure utilizes fat as an energy source. It bypasses aerobic (requiring oxygen) glucose burning as well as the anaerobic (without oxygen) energy supply process that converts pyruvic acid molecules to lactic acid. Just add the Ion Magnum to your training routine and watch it blast your muscles to new growth. It will significantly increase your core strength, stamina, and speed, while busting through "sticking points." Literally sit back and watch as the Ion Magnum gives you what the competition lacks, the Hyperplasia and Hypertrophy you want in a fraction of the time required by a full professional workout.

Healthy Muscle Building

The Ion Magnum builds muscle using fat as its main energy source. It gives that extra energy boost that elevates core strength, speed and stamina to substantially enhance sports performance. Ion Magnum has absolutely nothing to do with muscle stimulators. Neurostimulators or the Russian Stim that are specifically designed to contract the muscles. Exercise does a lot more than merely contract the muscles. It reinforces the immune system, increases core strength and agility, speeds up metabolism, detoxifies, and enhances well-being. The Ion Magnum procedure is effortless and painless while never reaching anaerobic threshold. Hardly any Lactic Acid is produced, minimizing the workload of the lymphatic system that has been vigorously activated to filter and remove invading micro-organisms and other foreign particles. Excess interstitial fluid is returned to the blood relieving the body from any edema. The Ion Magnum enhances and restores neuronal signaling, also acting as an antioxidant for combating oxidative damage by allowing a steady infusion of electrons that stabilize free radicals. Oxidative damage and free radicals are the main causes of aging and disease. This is how the Ion Magnum gives you healthy muscle building while enhancing immune efficiency.

Healthy Joints

Usually the joints are distressed through exercise such as lifting or any repetitive motion. There is research evidence that micro-electrical stimulation has successfully demonstrated healing of cartilage. Additionally, there is evidence that electrical energy can enhance osteogenic activity. However, electrical energy appears to lose its healing potential within the miliamp range (one over a thousand of an ampere, of the TENS machines, where ATP (cellular fuel) synthesis is significantly compromised. Concerns regarding the effect of a technology on joints usually comes from individuals who have experienced or have knowledge of muscle stimulators and TENS devices or other exercise systems which stress the joints. Because those devices do not help the joints, these individuals may have difficulty imagining the entirely different beneficial aspect of our technology to heal fractures, cartilage and joints. Ion Magnum revitalizes the joints how certain MENS (one over a millionth of an ampere) frequencies offer the required supply of protons necessary to spin the ATPase enzyme that synthesizes ATP (cellular energy). Biological energy is necessary to aggregate and direct the proteins, enzymes, ionic currents and other recourses to battle the degenerated joint. Given the adequate energy, the body has a reparative capacity to heal itself. Neuronal degeneration around the trauma, however, may compromise the speed and intensity of signals traveling via the nervous system to the brain, obstructing or interrupting the communication between nerves and brain. The less access the brain has to the neuron cells in the traumatized area, the greater the difficulty in directing biological agents necessary to heal the neuron, cartilage or joint. Here is how the Ion Magnum handmade analog waveform can substitute the weak or absent neuronal signals connecting the nerves surrounding the wound with the brain. The Ion Magnum waveform takes over to transmit the '911' signal so that the central biological controls provide to the traumatized area. Only the Ion Magnum multi-sine waveform has the clarity and communication capacity of a naturally occurring neuronal signal. Only the Ion Magnum waveform has decoded the intricacy of biological signatures that unlock the necessary biological gates.

Pure Analog vs. Digital Signal

The Ion Magnum signal is pure analog, meaning that it stays analog from end to end. It is not made digitally and then converted, as it happens in most medical devices. Most medical devices output analog, but generally the signals are made digitally (to keep the devices more compact, for one thing). However, a digitally made signal has finite resolution (e.g., virtual reality, whether or not it is eventually converted into analog. Only a handmade analog signal has an infinite resolution. Only a signal that stays analog from end to end encompasses the richness and complexity inherent in biological organisms. Biological organisms perceive digital signals converted to analog signals as lacking information, or as being incomplete. This is because of the acute sensitivity of biological organisms. The better your audio system is, for example, the more you can perceive the noise or inaccuracies of music. Why. Because the bandwidth and resolution in our case are finite. There is not enough space available to contain all the information required for the high and low frequencies. Essentially, a digital signal is like a cargo ship that carries machinery that is missing connecting parts. You may still be able to use them, although they will be always inferior to machines that have all their parts. The cellular system is programmed to respond to the specificity and coherence of naturally occurring events. It may fail to interpret a digital signal converted to analog signal or it may dismiss it depending on its level of noise or missing information.

The Pacemaker Technology

Ion Magnum is based on an advanced version of the Pacemaker technology. It resonates the neurons firing during regular strenuous exercise, thus giving results that are comparable to those of physical activity. The Ion Magnum waveform is composed with up to 2,000 sine waveforms, a futuristic dream for the electronics of today. Way ahead of its time, the UK Regenerative Research has managed to build a pure analog waveform by inter-twining up to 2,000 natural sign waveforms. The Ion Magnum complex waveform is handmade and based on two decades of diligent research on neuron-firing signals. It demonstrates clarity and communication capacity of a naturally occurring neuronal signal. To date, few devices pay attention to waveform formation that is the essence of neuro-communications. A simple square waveform is too impoverished by itself to resonate the dynamic complexity of a biological system. The way a two piece team is insufficient in delivering the formations and overall performance necessary in the World Cup. The waveform is as important in biological neuro-resonance as strategic formations are in sports. A waveform emitted by an electronic device must resonate the rhythm of endogenous electrical signals and comply with the established spatial organization that neurons use in their multifaceted networking. The body is a dynamic system composed of many interacting parts. The way a game involves players, a ball, referees, a stadium and field dimensions, etc. The signal of a device enters the body the way a player interviews to join a sports team, requiring certain key criteria before being accepted as part of the team. Similarly, the signal of a device will be conditionally accepted by the body provided that: (1) it resonates biological neuro-communications (2) it has the inherent complexity and flexibility to follow the intricate spatial organization of electrically excitable cells in their biologically determined rhythm. Above all, an electronic signal must participate with regular bodily functions while not disturbing them. Causing disturbance would alert the body to treat the signal as an intruder. Such an alert would render the biological system in a state of war forcing it to gather resources to fight against the perceived external threat. The computer generated digital square waveform seen above may be at best misinterpreted, ignored, or at worst be identified as an intruder by the body. Also featured above is the Ion Magnum analog, multi-sine waveform is especially designed to fulfill biological requirements. Its complexity and neuro-resonance render the Ion Magnum signal eligible to become assimilated by the body to enhance body building, core strength, agility, and stamina.

Latisse™

Get Ready for a New Innovation in Lashes

Now you can grow longer, fuller, darker lashes. It’s not an Illusion. It’s your own eyelashes – Only Better! Latisse™ (Bimatoprost Ophthalmic Solution) 0.03% is the first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA for the treatment of inadequate or not having enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.

Latisse™ Works Effectively

Latisse™ makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: Bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is not known, research suggests that the growth of eyelashes occurs by increasing the percent of hairs in, and the duration of, the anagen (or growth) phase. Lashes can grow longer, thicker and darker because Bimatoprost can also prolong this growth phase.

Clinically Proven Results You Can See Over Time

Latisse™ is easy to use, FDA approved and effective. It's a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes. Patients in a clinical trial saw results gradually over time (starting at 4 weeks with full results after 16 weeks).

It's an innovation backed by research

While Latisse™ is a new treatment in eyelash growth, it was developed through years of research by Allergan®, a pharmaceutical leader with over 60 years of expertise in prescription eye care products. Schedule a Consultation with Dr. Gordon Today to see if Latisse™ Solution is Right for You.

Lila Body Contouring

What is LiLa?

LiLa is a non-invasive, painless cold red laser, and when placed on the skin, liquefies body fat. When you exercise you pull triglycerides from the fat cells, the more you exercise, the smaller the fat cells, or adipocytes, will become.

LiLa works in much the same fashion by pulling the triglycerides from the fat cells without calling for the exercise. Triglycerides are made up of free fatty acids, which is where our energy is stored, water, which is either used or excreted by the body, and glycerol, which is stored in the liver for future use and helps keep our insulin level stable. The average client loses about 2-3 inches abdominally in 20 minute treatment, and is as permanent as if you exercised it away.

When LiLa is used in conjunction with the Whole Body Vibration devices, several positive things happen to the body. The lymph system drains 300 to 400 percent faster than normal, circulation is increased to the point of a red appearance on the surface of the skin, and bone density increases with each use. The most noticeable aspect of the treatment is the inch loss and the increased energy the process produces. An average 10 to 20-minute treatment results in a pure body contouring fat loss of 40 to 60 grams, depending on your metabolic rate, and a 10-minute Whole body Vibration will burn in excess of 140 calories.

Thinner with Every Visit

Lila Body Contouring

The Strawberry is a low-level laser that stimulates the adipocyte cells

This results in the breaking down of stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, releasing them via the channels in the cell membranes. The process of fatty acid release is how the body uses the stored energy reserves, thus making the Strawberry treatment a natural process.

In addition, this process will not harm surrounding structures, vessels, or nerves. The expelled fat and fluids are released into the interstitial space and transported to the body’s lymphatic system. It is highly recommended that physical exercise follow to ensure the disposal of the fat efficiently and prevent reabsorption.

Proper nutrition and exercise will both enhance results and prolong them long-term. The Strawberry Laser does not destroy cells. The process shrinks cells, causing inch loss in a more natural, non-invasive approach.

Lipomassage by Endermologie

Overview

ENDERMOLOGIE is the latest generation of Endermologie treatments dedicated to localized fat, cellulite, saddlebags, flabby arms, belly rolls, double chin, love handles, potbelly stomach, fleshy pectorals. With major technological and protocols innovations, is able to produce faster and more targeted results. Endermologie makes your ideal physique attainable. Males and females store fat differently and in different places. However, both men and women can successfully fight fat with Endermologie, when even the strictest diets and most rigorous of exercise regimens have failed. Genetically predisposed to fat storage (in anticipation of pregnancy and breastfeeding), women begin acquiring figure defects as early as adolescence. After pregnancy and with the onset of age, skin loses elasticity and resilience and the condition worsens… Endermologie effectively treats these factors.

Endermologie Roll'in, Roll'out and Roll'up - Besides well-known Roll'out and Roll'up technics, the dynamic rotation of Endermologie's new Roll'In technology provides greater depth of action, giving fat cells a true workout and slimming stubborn fatty areas.

New Protocols - The new protocols combine this tissue action with isometric movement that solicits muscles, providing a much more effective treatment than ever before.

Dramatically enhanced results - As a result, dramatically enhanced results may be obtained starting from 6 sessions of Endermologie on the targeted areas.

Endermologie is a unique, non-invasive way of shaping your body, reducing the appearance of cellulite and improving overall skin fitness.

New Roll-In Technology

Roll-In technology features dynamic rotations for greater depth of action on stubborn fatty areas: Roll'in for body slimming (for areas of excess, dense and stubborn fat), Roll'out for firmer skin (for delicate, loose areas of skin), Roll'up for body contouring (for redesigning the body's folds).

New Protocols

To maximise this technological breakthrough, brand new protocols have been created around Roll-In stimulation.

Work Targeted Areas

This powerful combination is performed as a targeted treatment, focusing directly on specific problem areas.

Soliciting Muscles

Sessions are more vigorous and energic, requiring subject participation. Isolating the muscles with contraction-and-relaxation repetitiLipomassage by Endermologie at Plastikos Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and MedSpa in Atlanta, Georgiaons, the new protocols isolate fat layers and work them intensively. As the isometric exercices require exertion, the released fat energy starts to be burned immediately. As this happens, surface layers are nourished with reinvogorated fluid exchanges and the skin is revitalized to its youthful radiance.

Massage

Deep Tissue Massage 50 or 80 Minutes

This treatment is recommended for those who regularly receive massages and who enjoy intense bodywork. Specialized, focused techniques reach deep muscle layers and address points of attachment as well as the belly of the muscles. Because these techniques tend to be slow and coordinated with deep breathing, just two or three areas can be thoroughly addressed in a 50-minute session.

Head, Neck and Shoulders 25 Minutes

This concentrated massage employs a variety of techniques to release tension in the head, neck and shoulders. This is not a full-body massage.

Reflexology 50 Minutes

Every aspect of wellness is connected, from your head to your hard-working toes. This relaxing foot massage relieves tension, soothes your aches and puts the spring back in your step. Please wear light, loose-fitting clothing.

Lymphatic Massage 50 or 80 Minutes

The lymphatic system is responsible for immune system regulation and fluid and waste removal. By stimulating the lymph nodes through massage, it helps clear any blockages and gives the lymphatic system the boost it needs to keep it running healthy and strong! Lymphatic massage is an excellent treatment on its own or when used in combination with other massage techniques such as Deep Tissue or Swedish.

Reiki Massage 50 Minutes

Based on the principles of chi, or universal life energy, Reiki promotes healing through methods rooted in spiritual tradition. The therapist’s hands are gently placed over your head, chest, abdomen and back, producing a calming and nurturing effect.

Swedish Massage 50 or 80 Minutes

Swedish massage is the most common massage. It promotes relaxation, improves circulation and relieves muscle pain. A Swedish massage uses long flowing strokes, circular pressure, kneading and percussion strokes.

Trigger Point Therapy 50 Minutes

Trigger Points are tight fibers within your muscle tissue that usually refer pain elsewhere within the body. Trigger Points are usually caused by trauma or injury. They may lie dormant; but given the right stimulus they will activate. Trigger Point Massage interrupts the cycle of pain. Isolated pressure is held on a trigger point several times (for 8-10 seconds) during a session to break the cycle. This massage reduces pain and discomfort, while eliminating toxins from the tissues.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a way to improve many unsightly surface conditions. They include removal of age spots, blackheads, whiteheads and fine lines around the eyes, lips and neck. Dull and rough textured skin can be improved. In addition, the treatment can be used to reduce mild scarring and scaly skin lesions. The term microdermabrasion refers to micronized (tiny) crystals derived from minerals. The technician uses an instrument to direct a stream of these fine crystals onto the skin. These crystals are used to abrade the skin thereby removing dead and flaking skin cells. As this is being done, a small vacuum removes the crystals along with the upper layer of skin. As a result, the production of new skin cells and collagen is being stimulated. Each treatment takes approximately one half hour to complete, and no anesthesia is required.

Treatment

The number of treatments depends on the size, depth and type of skin problem the patient has. The microdermabrasion treatment is repeated every 7 to 10 days for up to 12 treatments. Additional monthly treatments may be recommended for maintenance purposes.

Your Results

The skin will be noticeably improved after the first treatment. Age spots, fine lines and wrinkles will be diminished, and the skin will take on a more radiant glow. Acne scars will become less noticeable and many report fresher, younger looking skin. With microdermabrasion, some moisture will be lost; therefore, special cleansers and moisturizers will be recommended for daily use. Some patients experience a tightening and redness of the skin immediately after the treatment. The sensation has been compared to mild sunburn. These conditions last for only a short time. Some people notice dryness in the treated area and may be advised to apply a moisturizer.

Why Choose Microdermabrasion

There are several reasons to choose microdermabrasion over other techniques. Microdermabrasion requires less time and involves less discomfort. Recovery time is rapid and normal activities can be resumed immediately. Microdermabrasion is safe and effective on most parts of the body and can be used in conjunction with other procedures such as laser skin resurfacing and chemical peel.

Perfector

Perfector is a non-invasive, skin rejuvenation computerized device that builds new tissue, lifts sagging muscles, purifies and detoxifies until your skin glows with health. Nano Perfector utilizes complex waveforms and adjustable voltage to deliver a high definition signal designed to achieve resonance with cellular biological processes. The nano signal owes its clarity and accuracy to its microscopic size that minimizes resistance or biological “noise”. Cells communicate through a number of chemical and electrical processes. The end result of a chemical and/or electrical process can be seen as a communication signal. The translation of this intricate biological language promises to identify hidden solutions for various physiological events, including aging.
