3DEEP® Body Contouring – Reduce Cellulite, Shape Abdomen, Buttocks and Thighs

  • Treats larger body areas with a three dimensional body contouring treatment that provides deep, volumetric dermal heating
  • Results in smoother skin and a more appealing contour via collagen stimulation
  • Uses clinically proven 3DEEP RF technology
  • Enjoy a non-invasive procedure with no discomfort or downtime
  • Body contouring and cellulite reduction for waist, abdomen, peri-umbilical area, buttocks, hips, and inner and outer thighs.

Patient demand for non-surgical, non-invasive and no downtime skin tightening and body contouring treatments has grown dramatically over the past decade as new treatments and technologies have been introduced.
Until recently, the options available to treat skin laxity in order to attain a tighter body contour were limited to surgery. Various non-invasive vacuum and massage-based treatments offer only partial and short-term benefits since the improvement was temporary.   Devices with various optical heating sources have proved to have limited benefit due to either their inability to penetrate deep enough or due to unwanted side effects.
To treat lax skin and cellulite, the thermal energy must reach the collagen located in the dermis and in the perilobular connective tissue in the sub-dermal layer – which is something that certain types of radiofrequency energy can do.  The heat penetration achieved by EndyMed’s proprietary 3DEEP RF technology reaches into the deep dermis and sub-dermal layers to provide effective collagen tightening and remodeling. The effects of dermal heating include an immediate effect on collagen structure via the stimulation of neocollagenesis.
The proprietary 3DEEP™ technology developed by EndyMed controls the power and depth of RF energy delivered to the skin, which is what makes it very effective.

Comfortable, non-invasive 3DEEP Body Contouring treatment can be used to treat most body areas.

 

EndyMed’s 3DEEP Body Contouring product – one of the handpieces available on the EndyMed PRO product – provides an effective, non-invasive, comfortable body contouring treatment.

 

Price:  $350/session.  This service requires 6-10 sessions.  A discount is applied when sessions are purchased as a package.

 


The Lipo-Light Advanced Body Contouring system is the latest treatment for targeting those stubborn areas. The use of specialized light combine with exercise and a healthy life style is the new and natural slimming and toning protocol.

How It Works:

We use high quality LED red light, which has been proven to increase collagen and elastin to tighten the skin. It has also been proven that certain wavelengths such as 635 nanometer can trigger the body’s own natural ability to break down fat; a process called lipolysis. During this process the body can release fatty acids which are then used by the body during exercise.
The Lipo-Light is equipped with 8 LED pads enabling the technician to gain maximum results from each treatment. Depending on the area of the body part, we may use 4-8 pads at any one time over the treatment area.

After each session, it is essential to exercise. We so strongly encourage this, that we make it part of the treatment with our mini gym and rehydration station. To further excite the fat cells, you will stand on a vibration plate, followed by at least 20 minutes of walking at your pace on the treadmill.

The Lipo-Light treatments work best when you follow a sensible eating plan and follow a cardiovascular exercise regimen at least 3 times per week for 20 minutes or more. We also strongly suggest you either abstain or dramatically reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake while undergoing treatments, as this can have an adverse impact on your results.

iHeart – Learn Your Physiological Age

Toronto MD develops cardio app to predict mortality

By Rosie Lombardi

Dr. Jess Goodman (pictured), a Toronto-based GP and developer of health monitoring electronics, has launched a consumer device called iHeart Internal Age that predicts lifespan from a reading of just one easily obtained measurement. “There’s extensive scientific literature showing that aortic stiffness is an effective heart health indicator, and predicts the risk of death from all causes, not just cardiac diseases,” says Goodman.

Goodman stresses that iHeart is strictly for health and wellness education, and is not to be used for diagnostic purposes or to manage illness. “It’s a motivational tool that shows people how long they’ll live based on their cardiovascular health.”

The device consists of a fingertip optical sensor, similar to a pulse oximeter, which sends data via Bluetooth to an Apple app on a smartphone or iPad for analysis. “It uses the optical sensor to pick up the arterial pulse wave. Within the pulse wave, there is a specific wave called the reflected wave that gives information about aortic stiffness. When the heart beats, this wave ripples down the walls of the aorta and upon reaching the lower abdomen, it’s reflected back towards the heart. The aorta is the body’s largest blood vessel that goes from the heart through the chest and down through the abdomen. The stiffer you are through those core areas, the more likely you are to have a shorter life span.”

When a person ages, aortic stiffness causes the reflected wave to return to the heart too quickly, he explains. “This means that during the heart’s relaxation phase there will be less aortic pressure to induce blood flow into the coronary artery and reduced blood flow to the heart muscle. In addition, because the reflected wave arrives back at the heart while it is still contracting, the heart has to work harder to push out its blood, leading to earlier onset of heart failure. Hypertension and higher peak pressures can result, damaging the fragile blood vessels in the brain which, over time, may lead to atherosclerotic change and dementia.”

Despite the large body of scientific evidence, few GPs or even cardiologists are aware of the way aortic stiffness measurement can be used to assess heart health, he says. That’s because the equipment to measure aortic stiffness with precision is both uncommon and expensive. “Aortic stiffness measurement is a technology which has tremendous potential to be an effective cardiovascular risk and overall health assessment tool. However it’s not in the hands of consumers or physicians because it’s too expensive so it’s not a recognized or widely-used method.”

Instead, the iHeart app gives reasonable estimates of aortic stiffness based on innovative arterial pulse analysis work Goodman has conducted over the past few years. “For my purposes, I know that the reflective wave travels on past the heart and can be seen in the finger pulse. I’ve worked with a team to do signal analysis and find ways to identify the reflected wave and analyze it to get a parameter known as aortic pulse wave velocity that closely corresponds to aortic stiffness.”

Goodman and his team have also conducted studies to collect values for people in different age groups to develop averages in each cohort that can be plotted and analyzed against an individual’s reading. “So iHeart gets an aortic pulse wave velocity reading for you. This is then mapped against the average for your age group and it gives you your internal age, which can be older or younger than your chronological age. Young healthy people have an aortic pulse wave velocity of about 6 meters per second. As you get older, that increases to 10 or more, depending on your overall health.”

The motivational part comes into play because the ill effects of aortic stiffness can be reversed with healthy lifestyle changes. “Studies show that exercise improves aortic stiffness, and that paying attention to diet, especially Omega 3 fatty acids, Vitamin D, and garlic can improve aortic stiffness as well.”

Goodman has invested his own funds in developing the iHeart system and the corresponding demographic studies of aortic stiffness, which he hopes to publish in the near future. He also recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds and awareness of iHeart’s potential to motivate meaningful change.

“Everyone who tries the iHeart loves it. You can watch your weight, but it doesn’t necessarily relate to your overall health or your lifespan. Here’s something that lets you look under the hood to get an index of organ function and longevity. There’s no parameter like it. The wealth of scientific literature about aortic stiffness out there is stunning, but little use of this powerful health assessment parameter has been made beyond the research lab.”
