Cooltech - The Latest in Non-invasive Body Contouring
Just arrived at Accent on Skin is the Cooltech fat freezing machine. This treatment reduces fat without surgery. It destroys fat cells through a process called "Cryolipolysis', without causing damage to your skin or other cells. The cooltech procedure uses a vacuum applicator to draw in skin and fat and cool the tissue in the cooling cup for up to 70 minutes. The procedure is for spot reduction of fat. It is not a weight loss solution. You may require 1-3 treatments per area every 6-8 weeks for best results.
Cooltech treatments expect to remove 25-30% of the localised fat in the treated area. As with all procedures, results vary from person to person.
How does it work? Cooltech freezes fat cells to the point where they crystallise and die, then are gradually eliminated by the body's natural metabolic processes. The fat cells that remain will shrink, causing further reduction in the size of the treated area.
How is Cooltech different from other technology? Cooltech has six different applicators, which are individually designed to ensure that whatever area of the body is being treated, the maximum effect will be achieved with maximum safety. It is also possible to use two different applicators on most parts of the body so your treatment time is doubly effective.
You are an ideal candidate for cooltech treatment if: You are generally within, or just a little over, your appropriate weight, but have fat bulges that don't respond to diet and exercise; You have post pregnancy fat deposits on your tummy area; you have 'middle-age spread'- bulges on the sides and front of your abdomen; you have 'love handle' fat deposits on the sides of your body; your have rolls of fat on your back; you have upper arm or inner thigh fat deposits.
Cooltech treatment is NOT for everyone: if you are underweight or highly overweight; if you have lost a great deal of weight and have loose rolls of skin that are not filled with fatty deposits, your practitioner will recommend an alternative treatment.

Laser Tattoo Removal
ND:Yag Laser treatment involves short bursts of intense laser energy that pass through the skin to target the dark colours of the tattoo ink. The visible ink particles are then fragmented and the body’s immune system absorbs and eliminates them. This gradual elimination process can take up to six weeks after the treatment, hence the gap between treatments. With the new advances in Q-switched laser technology, tattoo removal can be achieved with minimal risk of scarring and permanent pigmentary alteration.
