Body contouring can be surgical and also non-surgical. We are all knowing about surgical body contouring like classic Liposuction, Tummy tuck, liposculpting, Vaser liposuction, etc.

There are also a number of non-surgical ways to contour your body. One we all know – Yes, its exercise. It’s the difficult way but it’s a lot of hard work and takes a lot of time and discipline. Today, there are many more non-surgical ways to help body contouring – Such as Radio-Frequency assisted Fat burning, Vacuum and ultrasound based fat dissolving treatments.

During exercise your body does two thing 1. Breaking the fat, and 2. Burning or metabolizing the fat. Its takes a vigorous workout of over 45 minutes to get the body to start breaking the fat and metabolizing the broken fat means at least another 45 mins to get things going. These timelines vary from individuals and entirely depends on how honest the workout was. Also with exercise it’s not entirely possible to focus on one’s trouble areas or pockets of stubborn Fat. This is where we come in.  With our technology assisted non-surgical treatment, we can target fat pockets with stubborn fat and destroy them. So, we can help those stubborn areas by working on them using the most appropriate technology.

At Cocoona Centre for Aesthetic Transformation, we offer a number of non-surgical solutions which target any area of the body that is in need of improvement. All these solutions are safe and minimally invasive means. Typically either one or a combination of evidence-based procedures is adopted for optimal results. The list of treatments available with us are:

  1. Lipo therapy – Localized fat reduction (Meso-Lipodissolve)
  2. Mechanical Fat Damage- Ultrasound Stable Cavitation
  3. Muscle Toning – Venus
  4. Radio Frequency
  5. Lipo Laser- Robolex
  6. Carboxy Therapy
  7. Cryo Therapy

About the Technologies

The non-surgical pro energies systems like lasers, galvanic current & ultrasound cavitation systems, increase metabolism of this fatty layer & shrink the size of fat. Vacuum acts on the blood vessels to increase circulation while it is massaging the skin to make it smoother. Some injections can be added to accelerate the results like Lipodissolve and Carboxy therapy.

These technologies will help breaking fat on that particular stubborn fat area and also help to drain them through lymphatic system, so now when you exercise these broken fat are easily metabolized, thus, technology make life more easy.

Treatments are safe, comfortable & it feels like a warm, deep tissue massage for most patients. Normal Activities are resumed immediately. It is safe for all skin colors & can even be performed on tanned skin.

Non-surgical Slimming & Shaping benefits:
• Reduces centimeters after liposuction
• Smoothens out the skin after weight loss
• Reshapes, tones & tightens loose skin
• Reduces appearance of cellulite
• Treats the abdomen, buttocks & neck in less than thirty minutes
• Proven safe & effective for treating cellulite
• Targeted treatment with no downtime.

For those without the time to get their bodies buff at the gym, or those who have tried to but failed to remove unwanted pockets of stubborn fat, there are now several non-invasive machine-based treatments that can help. It should be pointed out here that these are not treatments that are designed to help the obese to become slim. Rather, they can assist in improving a person’s silhouette or contour by smoothing out bulges and unwanted bumps.

Prior doing any treatment, the doctor takes some history for the problem, check general health & the life style also takes past medical and surgical history then does full analysis check to body areas. The client will go through full measurements, weight, height, BMI, Fat thickness measurements and area circumferences at different levels, finally some before treatment photos to compare it with the futures photos after the treatment
Lipo therapy – Localized fat reduction (Meso-Lipodissolve)
Also known as body sculpting or Lipodissolve, Lipo therapy is a non-surgical, natural medical technique in which cocktail of solutions are injected into localized fat deposits to block internal signals of fat uptake, trigger fat release, increase circulation and burn energy.

There’s no hospital stay, no anesthesia, and little downtime. The fat deposits flush out, and your body won’t gain the weight back in other areas, as long as you eat sensibly and continue to exercise. It’s a safe option for patients with small areas of excess fat, who are no more that 10 to 15% above their ideal body weight.

Another difference is that Lipo therapy is an excellent treatment for smoothing cellulite; surgical liposuction does not treat cellulite; in fact, it may ends up enhancing it and making it more prominent.

Using small needles the solution is injected directly into the fat deposits. The injections emulsify (dissolve) the fat, which is then eliminated by the body via the liver. Results can be seen within 3 weeks and are long lasting and measurable. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and there’s very little recovery time.

We have found that more than 80% of patients are very satisfied with the results after 4 treatments, with treatments spaced at least 2-3 weeks apart. Please be aware that because fat cells and connective tissue that are structured differently in men and women, we have found that men do not respond to Lipo therapy as well as women do.

You will feel a marked degree of discomfort during the treatment. Most patients experience an immediate burning sensation during injections. We apply ice packs to decrease your discomfort. The initial burning subsides within a few minutes, but there may be an aching sensation for 10 to 15 minutes. The skin will immediately turn red and swell slightly at the treatment site, which will resolve quickly. Most patients are able to leave within 15 to 30 minutes of finishing a treatment and resume their normal activities. You may experience a swelling sensation and some itching for a few days afterwards.

Although Lipo therapy is a relatively new procedure, thousands of treatments have been done all over the world with no serious side effects. You may experience some minor side effects, including painful nodules that can form under the skin and last up to 4 months. These are uncomfortable, but not harmful.
To ensure there are no problems, it is essential that the therapy be carried out by trained medical experts, who have knowledge of the anatomical distribution of fat deposits in the body, the correct injection technique and the right dosage for the treatment are of the utmost importance.
The ideal candidate is someone who is over 18 years old, in good health, exercises regularly, is within 11kg of their ideal body weight, and has deposits of fat that have not responded to exercise.

Ultrasound cavitation

Stable cavitation has been researched in multiple scientific studies and it has been demonstrated that it is efficient to reduce fat cells. By busting fat deposits. It reduces the appearance of cellulite and increases local blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Cavitation is produced in fat tissue only if a complex frequency wave is conducted through the combination of pressure and sound waves. The quick change of pressure creates small bubbles that produce stress on the fat cells, damaging its membrane and allowing the cells to be removed by defensive cells of body in a natural manner. The stored fat is mixed with the tissue surrounding it and creates an emulsion that is then eliminated by the lymphatic system. This emulsion reaches the liver and is later eliminated by the kidneys. Adults can’t produce new fat cells, thus, with each new treatment fat cells are eliminated little by little. To avoid new fat storage, diet control is very important during the treatment. Treatment with Stable cavitation is quick, safe and nonsurgical.

A typical treatment lasts between 60 and 90 minutes. If necessary, the treatment would be repeated after one week until the desired results are achieved. The amount of treatments depends on the size and position of the fat deposits.

With this method, the special hand piece emits Ultra-Sound to generate localized heat that penetrates from one to five centimeters beneath the skin. The heat produced along with heat creates a micro massage effect on the targeted fat cells. The micro massage then produces steam bubbles inside the tissues that will increase in size and produce micro bubbles, inducing the cavitation process. The fat cells will collapse due to the pressure created, leaving neighboring structures such as skin, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues intact.

The machine works well to help medium-weight to overweight women and men who want effective fat reduction of subcutaneous fatty tissue in problematic areas – without needles and sutures.

ROBOLUX

Following cavitation we apply Robolex machine which is the State-Of-The-Art device that uses negative/positive vacuum pressure, massage, and synergistic combination of radio frequency energy, and Lipo laser to smooth out cellulite, tighten skin, and contour the body. The system employs a combination of Lipolasers, massage rollers, Radio Frequency and vacuum suction to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the body during a series of treatment sessions.
The end result is a state-of-the-art body sculpting device that has been conclusively shown reduction of your subcutaneous fat layer with each treatment. Moreover, it does this with only minimal discomfort and no downtime. You may resume your normal activities including work and exercise the same day as your procedure.

Robolex requires no preparation .It has no downtime and the results we see range from 1.5cm to 4cms reduction immediately after the half hour session.4-6 sessions are required for long lasting results.

The procedures are recommended weekly for four to six weeks, with touch ups suggested every few months. With this combined method, the special hand piece emits Radio Frequency to generate localized heat that penetrates from one to five centimeters beneath the skin. The heat produced along with Vacuum creates a micro massage effect on the targeted fat cells.

The fat cells will then liquefy and be eliminated from the body through zonal lymphatic massage. This massage helps the body metabolize unwanted fluid and fat from problematic areas. It also encourages blood circulation while warming the connective tissue and redistributing fat to reveal a smoother body shape.

The machine comes with a lymphatic drainage system with the same hand piece which will assist with opening up the lymph nodes for drainage of fatty substances through the lymphatic system. Through a series of cavitation and drainage sessions, Robolex can be used to treat various areas – the abdomen, back, arms, love handles, hips, buttocks and thighs. There is no downtime and no side effects have been reported so far apart from a little redness on the treatment area that will gradually subside.

According to one study, an average reduction around the abdomen of more than three centimeters was measured after only one or two session’s treatment. Patients can see results even after the first treatment but a more visible, longer-lasting difference can be seen after a regimen of at least four to six sessions.

Patients are advised to drink plenty of water before and after the treatment to make sure they are well hydrated – to aid the lymphatic system in its drainage functions more effectively.

These treatment modalities are not short-cuts to weight loss. In order to gain maximum benefit, it is best to implement a healthy nutritional diet with exercise to complement a healthy lifestyle.

Radio-Frequency (RF)

Over the past decade, radiofrequency (RF) has become an important and frequently used technology in aesthetic medicine. Noninvasive delivery of RF energy to collagen and subcutaneous tissues produces collagen remodeling, therefore, achieving noninvasive tightening of lax skin and body contouring.

Nowadays, patients asking for cosmetic medical treatments expect perfect results, with a minimum of work and social downtime. Therefore, such innovative noninvasive treatments have been progressively replacing the traditional and time-honored surgical procedures for skin tightening.

It is also thought that RF results in stimulation of fibroblasts, which produces new collagen, new elastin, and other substances, to enhance skin.

The depth of penetration of RF energy is inversely proportional to the frequency. Consequently, lower frequencies of RF are able to penetrate more deeply. Two different forms of RF delivery have been developed so far: monopolar and bipolar.

Monopolar systems deliver current through a single contact electrode with an accompanying grounding pad that serves as a low resistance path for current flow to complete the electrical circuit; the active electrode concentrates most of the energy near the point of contact, and energy rapidly diminishes as the current flows through the body toward the grounding electrode. As a result, the tissue in the treated area is heated rather deeply (usually up to 20 mm) and intensely.

Bipolar devices pass electrical current between two electrodes closely positioned to the skin; no grounding pad is necessary with these systems because no current flows throughout the rest of the body. The depth of penetration is approximately half the distance between the two electrodes.

As a result, the tissue in the treated area is heated less deeply (usually up to 2–4 mm in depth) and less intensely than with the monopolar RF devices.

Despite its lesser absolute effectiveness, the bipolar technology is currently gaining an increasing popularity, as it allows fair outcomes with significantly less invasive applications.
Muscle Strengthening, toning and firming<
The human body is a well-built machine with many unused capabilities. B.E.A.M (also known as Electro-Therapy) is a revolutionary technology that works in harmony with the natural systems of the body, utilizing those hidden resources.

What does B.E.A.M stand for?

Bio – Building and conditioning muscles is an instinctive response to the repeated contraction of muscle fibers. As the muscles contract, the fibers restructure and build on top of themselves. The restructured muscles are stronger and take up less space.
Electrical – Pulses from B.E.A.M imitate the body’s own natural electrical signals from the nervous system. B.E.A.M is an external trigger for muscle activation stimulating and controlling the contraction of specific muscles or muscle groups.
Acceleration – of the body’s own natural process producing superior results in less time. Since B.E.A.M communicates directly with the muscles, they can perform more controlled contractions in less time. The higher rate of contraction increases blood circulation and improves metabolism for optimal results.
Management – It’s unique management system allows us to control this bio-electrical process. With precise adjustments, the advanced software synchronizes and customizes each micro- parameter of the pulses for accurate and measurable clinical results.

After a treatment session with Electro-Therapy/ B.E.A.M, muscles have been toned under optimal conditions. As a result, muscles become stronger and more defined. The activated muscle causes immediate circumferential reduction, and leaves the client with tighter, younger and healthier looking skin.

Electro-Slim is an exclusive custom software program created by Madame et Monsieur that specializes in area-specific body sculpting through the use of skin contact electrodes. The electrodes deliver waves of pulses with a repetitive variable pulse frequency to specific targeted areas to sculpt and reshape the body. These pulse waves produce rhythmic and powerful muscle contractions that result in both muscle rehabilitation and rapid fat reduction. The personalized nutritional program coupled with the passive exercise of particular muscle groups breaks down adipose tissue while simultaneously increasing blood circulation, resulting in localized tissue reduction, improved health and longevity.

Recommended treatment: One, 30 minute – 60 minute session, 2-4 times per week based on your desired results. Electro-Slim Technology is a doctor recommended therapy (FDA approved equipment) with no side effects, only total health benefits.

Electro Slim by Madame Et Monsieur is the world leader in this slimming industry. Electro-Therapy is used in medicine by many sports doctors, urologists and physiotherapists to strengthen damaged and withered muscles.

Consultations are held with highly experienced, fully qualified and caring therapists. You can be sure to achieve your goals of weight loss, and at the same time you will gain muscle tone and reduce cellulite.

It sounds amazing, but in a 30 minute totally private electro therapy session your body’s muscles will do the equivalent of a 6 hour workout. You give us your body and relax while we do the work for you…the

Carboxy Therapy

Carbone Dioxide Therapy is often described as the biggest breakthrough in beauty therapy since Botox. It is a very safe FDA approved, quick, effective, and less comfortable with no down time treatment, given in a way exactly like Mesotherapy.

  • It is highly effective treatment in:
  • Improving all over skin tone and texture
  • Smoothing skin appearance by reducing appearance of cellulite
  • Slimming by reducing the volume of fatty tissue
  • Skin Tightening by improving the skin laxity and texture by stimulation and synthesis of Fibroblasts.

How does it work?

Ageing Skin and fat deposit are result from decrease in number of small blood vessels at the area which results in decrease in oxygen reaching the tissue and accumulation of toxic metabolites.

With Carbon dioxide gas therapy and via micro- injections just beneath the surface of skin, so the body interprets this is an oxygen deficit result in:

  • Increasing the flow of blood at the treated area.
  • Stimulate lymphatic drainage and eliminated toxic substances from the tissue.
  • Synthesis of new blood vessels by Neo – Angiogenesis Effect.
  • Release of growth factors due to tissue trauma and healing process.

Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis is a nonsurgical technique for localized fat reduction. Cryolipolysis appeals to both men and women as this technology is well suited for patients who desire nonsurgical spot reduction at modestly sized adiposities. It presents a promising method for nonsurgical body contouring. This procedure appears to be safe in the short term, with a limited side effect profile, and results in significant fat reduction when used for localized adiposities.

The development behind cryolipolysis stems from the clinical observation of cold-induced panniculitis. Thus, crystallization and cold ischemic injury of the targeted adipocytes induce apoptosis of these cells and a pronounced inflammatory response, resulting in their eventual removal from the treatment site within the following several weeks.

Post treatment manual massage has the potential to improve the efficacy of cryolipolysis. Multiple treatments in the same anatomic area may lead to further fat reduction, although the efficacy of cryolipolysis appears to be attenuated with successive treatments.

Only mild, short-term side effects, such as erythema, bruising, changes in sensation, and pain, were reported in the studies reviewed. Erythema was noted in multiple studies immediately after the treatment and subsided within a week. These side effects are generally resolved within a few weeks after treatment.
