What is Lipocontour Ultrasound Cavitation?
Lipocontour Ultrasound Cavitation is a revolutionary new European fat removal technique that REDUCES BODY CIRCUMFERENCE, CELLULITE, as well as TIGHTENING AND TONING SKIN without the need for surgery, anesthesia, hospital stay or time off from work.
Designed for the person with stored fat pockets Lipocontour Ultrasound Cavitation is a great therapy for body shaping. It removes stubborn fat especially in areas that don't seem to budge regardless of diet or exercise.
At Juventis MedSpa we use state of the art equipment along with scientifically proven techniques to give you great results.
What makes the Juventis MedSpa Lipocontour Ultrasound Cavitation different from other treatments?
Our Lipocontour Ultrasound Cavitation is the MOST effective treatment for the reduction of fat pockets and cellulite. Studies show that traditional liposuction does not treat cellulite. In fact, traditional Liposuction often causes existing cellulite to appear more prominent and can cause fat pockets to appear lumpy.
Our program treats cellulite directly and reduces superficial fat giving you smoother; less dimpled looking skin in treated areas. Unlike liposuction, Lipocontour Ultrasound Cavitation does NOT require hospitalization, general anesthesia or recovery time.
How does Lipocontour Ultrasound Cavitation work?
Lipocontour Ultrasound Cavitation causes tons of microscopic air bubbles to surround the lipocyte (fat cell) membranes. It resonates a frequency and creates pressure that causes fat cells to instantly break up. Broken lipocytes are naturally moved to the liver and safely removed from the body. This process is assisted by drinking a lot of water.
For the Science Minded: Cavitation triggers the lipolysis of fatty acids from adipocytes (fat-laden cells) as a result of stable cavitation which increases cell permeability of the adipocytes and therefore an increased flow of triglycerides. A breakdown of the fibers through mechanical action (jet stream) occurs as well. Free fat, liberated from the adipocytes, is metabolized by the liver and eliminated in the urine. The procedure works to remove superficial fat.
The Summary: Lipocontour Ultrasound Cavitation is a non-invasive method of reducing localized fat using ultrasound and radiofrequency. In addition to reducing fat, Lipocontour UC also has the benefit of skin tightening. The ultrasonic waves vibrate and break up the fat cells which are then liquefied and eliminated through the lymphatic and urinary system.
Commonly Targeted Areas:
Abdomen, Flank/Love Handles, Saddle Bags, Hips and Thighs, Buttocks, Bra Line, Upper Arms, Inner and Outer Thighs, Knees, Back of Arms and Ankles.
How Many Sessions are Needed to See Results?
It is common to have a decrease in your measurements after the first session. Research has shown that most people require 6-12 sessions to achieve optimal results. This will depend on the size of the area to be treated and the desired result.

with little to no downtime, Dermapen Skin Treatment can be used on all seven skin types.
The Dermapen is a fractional micro-needling device with a unique spring-loaded disposable needle tip that uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that enhances results while offering a more controlled and safer method of treatment than other micro-needling devices, all while causing less epidermal damage.
The automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort while increasing the effectiveness of treatments by promoting an even absorption of topicals into the skin. It is as effective as Fractional Laser Therapy and IPL, but has a significantly shorter recovery period.
Dermapen offers exceptional results, is easy to use and has better precision and control than leading alternatives, all at a fraction of the cost.
The first phase begins with the release of the body's growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemo-taxis, fibroblast proliferation, and matrix production. This proliferation of the body's tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes, and monocytes culminating in the second of three phases of CIT mechanics where collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, GAG’s and angiogenesis occur. The last phase of CIT and the Dermapen treatment results in the tissue remodeling process where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen. The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing product and because the process never involves heat or thermal energy or other chemicals or unnecessary trauma, the skin can quickly heal with almost zero downtime.
You will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. This is normal and will subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally recover within the same day or 24 hours. Your practitioner will prescribe a Dermapen approved post-procedure skincare.
A wrinkle is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of the aging processes resulting in a thinning of the epidermal layers of the skin as they lose the ability to retain moisture. Wrinkling in the skin is caused by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors. Depletion of water in the body, as occurs with dehydration, can also cause this puckering of the skin. The dermal layer of the skin thins and produces less and less collagen over time. Underlying the dermal layer of the skin is the subcutaneous layer which consists of fat cells that shrink with age and become less able to support the upper layers of the skin which make wrinkles even more noticeable.
Because of the degradation of the skin over time, the required regimen for treatment is a preventative protocol. Dermapen® promotes a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The most effective way to stimulate or “Induce” new skin is by micro-needling with the Dermapen’s® vertical stamping method. This new stimulation can be done quickly and easily while keeping the epidermis intact and down-time to a minimum.
How to treat acne scars/ surgical scars.
The Dermapen® treatment can provide drastic results in improving the appearances of the scars. The microneedles of the Dermapen® create new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited called collagenases, however, the added benefit of new capillary growth is also a result which can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. Currently there are ablative and non-ablative treatments offered which can damage the epidermis and evaporate the skin leading to thinner epidermis problems. The Dermapen® keeps the epidermis integrity fully intact while treating the area which quickens healing time and causes less pain.
Surgical scar, How can they be treated?
The challenge of a surgical scar lies within the matrix of all the forms or categories of the scars involving hypertrophic and keloid scars and pigmentation flaws. These scars thicken over time. Scar therapy has been historically limited. The Dermapen’s® unique vertical stamping and depth control up to 2.5mm makes treating scars superior to other methods or rollering. With surgical steel integrity, the robust nature of the automated needle tip (11 needles total and sized at thirty-three gauge) penetrate difficult scar tissue, dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size, and mobility.
Stretch marks, How can they be treated?
Various treatments are available for the purpose of improving the appearance of existing stretch marks, including laser treatments, dermabrasion, and prescription retinoids. Some cream manufacturers claim the best results are achieved on recent stretch marks; however, few studies exist to support these claims. The use of Dermapen® uses the body's natural solution for unsightly stretch marks. New collagen growth and stimulation is more effective for reducing and fading stretch marks. The Dermapen® does this through Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
The Dermapen® device allows for appropriate treatment of needle depth to activate the cascade of fibroblast and growth hormone steps to generate more skin, collagen, and elastin for smooth and healthy colored skin. The skin of the epidermis effectively thickens and noticeable smoother and evening of stretch marks is the result.
At Juventis MedSpa, we have created an Advanced Skin Rejuvenation Program utilizing eMatrix™ (Syneron®’s unique Sublative Rejuvenation™) along with a Proven Enhancement Technologies to go beyond traditional fractional methods for skin resurfacing. We can significantly improve the look and texture of your skin with little or no downtime!
After treatment with eMatrix™, most patients showed improvement in facial parameters such as skin brightness (83%) and skin smoothness/wrinkle reduction (90%). Journal of Drugs & Dermatology, March 2009. Now we can give you even BETTER results with our proven Enhanced eMatrix Treatment and it's FDA Approved.
FDA APPROVAL: Lincolnshire, IL – July 2010 – Syneron Medical, Ltd. recently announced the expanded FDA approval for the eMatrix™ Sublative Rejuvenation™ system. The expanded clearance of the Matrix RF handpiece on the eMatrix system that performs Sublative Rejuvenation is for the treatment of fine lines and facial wrinkles.
The eMatrix is the world’s first RF-only technology for fractional ablation(skin resurfacing) on the market. It treats minute skin areas, leaving the surrounding untreated skin areas intact to act as healing reservoirs for the thermally damaged tissue.
The undamaged tissue promotes quicker healing and ensures limited patient downtime while speeding the appearance of desired results. The tunable eMatrix applicator is equipped with the SelectPulse™ to enable customization of the depth of ablation and degree of skin resurfacing based on individual patient needs. Three different modalities can be emulated due to this software and technology: erbium glass fractional resurfacing, carbon dioxide fractional resurfacing and YSGG fractional resurfacing. An average of 3-5 treatments is recommended to achieve optimal results. Tissue tightening and smoothness may continue to develop for up to six months post-treatment.
How does Sublative™ work?
The ergonomic Sublative™ applicator delivers bipolar radiofrequency energy via a matrix of 64 electrodes in the disposable applicator tip. The RF energy generates fractional deep dermal heating in the region of the electrode matrix to induce skin injury, thus eliciting a wound healing response. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discoloration are reduced, and skin texture becomes more smooth and elastic.
Who should be treated with Sublative™?
Treatment is a safe and effective solution for all skin types.
When can patients expect to see results?
Post-treatment, they may notice tone and texture improvements as a result of increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells that are produced. With the treatment's dermal impact, mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. Typical treatment protocol is 3 treatments, 4 - 6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the skin condition of the patient.
How is the Sublative™ treatment tolerated by patients?
During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red "sunburn" appearance and feeling is also common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling are often used to reduce discomfort during treatment.
What are the cleaning guidelines for disposable treatment tips?
The treatment tip will need to be cleaned every 25 pulses. The system will stop pulsing and ask that you clean the treatment tip. The tip should not be removed but rather wiped down with a gauze pad moistened with 70% alcohol.
At Juventis MedSpa, we have created an ADVANCED SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENT utilizing a combination therapy that includes eMatrix™ Sublative Rejuvenation to deliver FDA Approved, Beautiful Results.
How Long Does it Take and Where Can it be done?
Each firming treatment takes approximately 40 minutes and can be used to tighten: NECK, BUTTOCKS, SKIN ABOVE THE KNEE & ABOVE THE ELBOW, even hands.
Is it Safe?
Skin Tightening creates little or no downtime and is safe for all skin types, light, and dark.
Is it Proven?
Results have been proven in trials conducted by leading aesthetic physicians and unlike traditional technologies, this therapy will not cause hypo-pigmentation or burning typically associated with laser-based therapy.
How Does This Compare to Other Lasers and Therapies?
This is NOT only a corrective therapy to remove the signs and spots of aging like most light-based lasers, but a true REJUVENATION technology that stimulates your skin's natural production of collagen, elastin and retinoic acid, the building blocks of healthy, young skin to reverse the effects of aging.
