Summer is almost here and it will soon be time to shed your winter coat in exchange for a swimsuit. Not ready, you say? We know that there are some steps you can take (outside of the gym) to prep your body for summer exposure, your legs in particular, but what about spa services that can supplement your spring workout routine and help smooth and firm all areas of the body? SmoothSculpt, a non-invasive firming and tightening system exclusive to Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spas in several major cities, is just one of those treatments that will have you on your way to smooth, svelte arms, legs and buttocks, and can even work on your abdomen and face!
A large part of this cellulite eliminating service is lymphatic drainage. SmoothSculpt focuses on treating Extra Cellular Matrix or ECM, which is basically a filtration system that lives between the blood vessels, nerves and cells. The pulsing and suction of the SmoothSculpt technology works to break up blockages in the lymph nodes and ECM, helping to cleanse the body’s cells and stimulate blood flow, collagen development and cellular regeneration.
As far as the experience goes, here’s what to expect: first, Collagen Complex Cream is applied to the area being treated. Then a Red Door technician uses the SmoothSculpt wand to break up lymphatic blockages , and then firmly massages the area to clean out toxins and tone the tissue. While slightly uncomfortable at first, the suction and pulsing, designed to mimic a heartbeat, will eventually lull you into a state of deep relaxation.
For best results three to five sessions are recommended, though the effects can be seen immediately in some cases. SmoothSculpt is a great treatment to prepare for summer, particularly for all you adventurous spa go-ers looking to try something new and exclusive!
