1.) What is in the Herbal Green Peel and how many peels will I need to see improvement in my skin?

The Herbal Deep-Peeling was medically developed by a German engineer for skin regeneration with only pure natural plant ingredients, which has been worldwide recognized and proven as a highly safe and successful method of a non-surgical procedure. The preparation is a compound of natural herbs without any chemical additives. It increases the blood circulation of the skin and causes the upper layers of the skin to peel off. The number of peels varies depending on the skin problem. For example, one treatment leaves skin improved, but treating scars and acne depend on severity 2-4 peels for all skin types. The Herbal Green Peel works better than chemical peels for dark skin.


2.) I understand that the Velashape II Technology involves using a vacuum process. Is the procedure painful

Velashape II is not painful. There are 4 technologies in one device: infrared lights, radio frequency, vacuum and mechanical massage. The client will feel they are getting a warm deep tissue massage during treatment.


3.) How Does the Elos Treatment Work?

Elos is the only technology combining optical and electrical energies improving the efficacy of results and safety during skin care treatment. No other technology on the market has the ability to offer light and radio frequency combined for optimal results.


4.) If I've been out in the sun, use a tanning bed, or use sunless tanning products; can I be treated with the V beam technology?

Because many of the lasers made by Candela have absorption by melanin/pigment, we advise that patients avoid ANY sun exposure, tanning beds, and sunless tanning products for at least 2 weeks prior to treatment and 2 weeks after. The only treatment that can be performed on patients with a tan is laser hair reduction and should only be performed using the GentleYAG laser. Still, patients should avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for 1 week prior to treatment and 2 weeks after. The Gentle YAG has no absorption of sunless tanning products


5.) How does Full Body Thermography work?

Full Body Thermography utilizes the digital infrared thermal imaging (DITI) for “visualizing” your pain.  It is a non-invasive procedure for detecting and monitoring a number of diseases and physical injuries using clinical imaging called “thermograms”.  These thermograms can be taken of the whole body or areas being investigated which then create colored images to detect areas of concern.  The “hot” areas, or red colors, are areas to focus on when looking at a thermogram.  The exam

only takes about 15-30 minutes, and the colored report is interpreted by a Thermologist within a few days.
