You "know" that the easiest way to have a "bikini body" is to... put a bikini on your body! Body positivity movements are on the right track to teaching self acceptance, but if you've decided that you'd be a whole lot happier with a flatter tummy, smoother thighs or leaner arms, there are ways to achieve your goals without harsh - even harmful - dieting methods. With CoolSculpt, you can literally freeze your fat away. This pain-free technology has been clinically proven to help patients dramatically and permanently lose inches by destroying fat cells beneath the skin. There's no cutting, no numbing - and your relaxing treatment is done in about an hour. Over the course of a few months, your body will safely eliminate the dead cells, leaving a trimmer "you" behind. And if you're a woman who wants to boost your confidence even more, consider ThermiVa! This miracle treatment dramatically improves bladder incontinence, intimate dryness, romantic release, vaginal laxity and so much more. It's changing lives - and relationships!

Methods to Reduce Melasma
Hormonal changes in the body can cause a type of hyper-pigmentation called melasma, which appears as a "muddy" type of pigmentation that can occur anywhere on the face, especially on the cheekbones, forehead and upper lip. It can be hard to cover with makeup and most clients feel like they "have dirt on their face. It tends to appear more commonly in women with darker skin types and can be tricky to treat, as very aggressive treatments and lasers sometimes make the problem worse. Prescription-strength hydroquinone can be helpful, and when combined with products like Lytera by Skin Medica, or Discoloration Defense by Skinceuticals, can show a dramatic improvement with lower chance of "rebound pigmentation." Maintaining improvement with a non-hydroquinone product like Lytera and Essential Defense Mineral Shield broad-spectrum sunscreen will help keep the reoccurrence of Melasma to a minimum.

Electrotherapy is the Best at Body Sculpting
Electrotherapy, also known as passive gymnastics or electro stimulation, uses electrical muscle stimulation (isometric contractions) to restructure, tighten and give elasticity to the muscles. It's so effective because it simultaneously works at the muscular, circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems levels, following a process of action ranging from the more internal to the more external tissues of the body. This excellent therapy can be applied in multiple areas at the same time, like the buttocks, hips, abdomen, back, legs and arms. It induces a special form of isometric workout that increases metabolism, boosting the consumption of energy, burning calories and correcting and enlarging muscle tone. It also promotes the mobilization of fat deposits and consumes stored fat, causing inch loss. On the circulatory system, it increases the absorption and mobilization of accumulated fluids, increasing the function of the lymphatic drainage and acting directly on cellulite and edema. To see fast results, schedule a minimum of 12 sessions with two sessions of at least 30 minutes per week. Effects start showing after the sixth session of treatment and improve progressively.

Wax for Happiness & Health
At WAX by Heather Nelson, you will find healthy treatments to bring out your inner beauty and the exhilarating feeling that comes with it. When it comes to a youthful look, waxing is preferred by many over other techniques because it preserves the skin's natural beauty, treating it gently while removing hair without destroying the follicles or disturbing pigment. It's the perfect way to turn back the clock and feel terrific at the same time. Freshen your face with brows and facial waxing and, while you're changing things up, why not try a Brazilian? This technique, a specialty of Heather's, is the perfect way to boost your self esteem and bring the sexy back. The faithful also swear it gives them a clean-all-over feeling. You know you're curious - but you'll never know you love it until you try it.
