CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to noticeably eliminate fat without surgery. CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for the flanks (love handles) and abdomen and is proven to be a safe and effective treatment. First the area(s) to be treated are selected. The device is positioned on the body and then draws the bulge of unwanted fat up between two cooling panels. The sensation is a firm pull and pressure – enough of a pull to ensure the selected tissue will be cooled most efficiently. As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, clients feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. A typical treatment can last between one and three hours, depending on the area (s) that is being treatment. During the treatment, many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap. The procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically clients return to normal activities immediately. No supplements or pills are required and many of our clients feel even more motivated to actively maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle following their CoolSculpting treatment. CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges of stubborn fat in certain areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. There is minimal to no downtime after the treatment, although some clients may experience temporary discomfort, redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling, and numbness. Side effects are temporary and last a few days to a week. Clients may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. During a CoolSculpting treatment, the affected fat cells are eliminated and as long as clients maintain their weight with normal diet and exercise, long-term results should remain stable. Typically, CoolSculpting treatments result in up to 50% reduction of fat in the treated area(s) and create a noticeably contoured difference. If you are interested in a non-surgical fat reduction option, schedule a consultation with Persona’s Beauty Consultant, who will address your area(s) of concern and design an individualized treatment plan to best suit your individual needs.
Endermologie Cellulite Reduction therapy is a unique, non-invasive treatment proven to dramatically reduce the appearance of cellulite, increase the tone and firmness of the skin, and re-contour the shape of the body. Through the combination of gentle, controlled suction and a soft rolling action, the patented mechanical LPG technology continuously folds and releases the skin which helps to break up clusters of cellulite within the underlying tissues .The intensity of the massaging action can be easily adjusted to ensure a client’s comfort while helping to achieve optimal results. This procedure has been approved by the FDA and has been used safely and effectively for more than a decade. Clients see a dramatic improvement in the look and feel of their skin, and many also experience a loss of inches in the treated area, allowing clothes to look and fit better. The length of the treatment time depends on the severity of the cellulite damage. In general, an endermologie session encompasses the entire body with more time spent on the areas of cellulite. Treatments will last between 40-50 minutes and following treatment, no recovery time is necessary as clients are able to return to daily activity. Persona offers a unique and proprietary endermologie service which incorporates infra-red and pressotherapy ensuring clients optimal cellulite reduction. Ideal candidates for Endermologie are those who are concerned with the appearance of cellulite on the thighs, hips, and buttocks, and this treatment is also extremely effective for use on the back, love handles, and abdomen. The number of treatments required to successfully achieve the desired result varies from client to client. Many see a significant improvement in the look and feel of their skin within the first few treatment sessions. In general, 12-16 treatments are recommended to achieve the optimal result. In order to ensure long-term results, we recommend that our clients schedule occasional maintenance sessions to keep them looking their best.
Velashape™ is a safe, non-invasive therapy that dramatically reduces the dimpling and distortion created by cellulite. Through the application of infrared light and radio frequency energy, combined with controlled suction and a gentle massaging action, the cellulite within the underlying tissues is heated, shrinking the size of the fat cells, thereby reducing the appearance of dimpled skin. As circulation in the tissue is increased and collagen production is stimulated, the appearance of the skin is further improved by the restoration of its elasticity, shape and tone. Many clients find the treatment to be relaxing and enjoyable, but if at any time a client experiences discomfort, the intensity of the massaging action can be easily adjusted to a gentler level. The length of Velashape treatment time depends on the size of the area being treated as well as the severity of the cellulite damage. In general, treatments will last between 30-40 minutes. Following the treatment, no recovery time is necessary and you will be able to return to your daily activities. Ideal candidates for Velashape™ are those concerned with the appearance of localized cellulite on the thighs, hips, and buttocks as well as on the back, love handles, and abdomen, which have not responded to diet and exercise. Clients see an improvement in the look and feel of their skin and the shape of their bodies as cellulite is reduced and superficial layers of fat are re-contoured. The number of treatments required to successfully achieve the desired result varies from client to client. Many of our clients see a significant improvement in the look and feel of their skin within the first few treatment sessions. For many of our clients, the initial results of Velashape™ therapy last for several months or longer. We recommend occasional maintenance sessions to ensure long-term benefits and to keep your skin looking its best.

Vanquish uses deep-tissue heating, a known method for targeting fat, and has minimal side effects. During four sessions spaced a week apart, the patient lies underneath an apparatus with adjustable panels that are positioned around the areas of the body to be treated but don't actually touch them. Sensors built into the device “read” the patient’s body fat and customize the amount of energy the machine will deliver during each 30-minute treatment. Although Vanquish heats the skin to 101 degrees, and the underlying fat to 120 degrees, one patient we interviewed says of the treatment that “it just feels warm,” like standing in front of a radiator. And because the device kills fat cells themselves, not just the fat within cells, the results are long lasting. Vanquish is typically intended for treatment of the abdomen, love handles, and back fat.

Medical MicroInfusion Treatments
Persona’s unique and proprietary medical microInfusion protocol is the next generation in age defying treatments that incorporates the latest in non-ablative technology, micro-needling, and an infusion of patented human growth factors that stimulate new collagen in the skin. The micro channeling that occurs from the technology in combination with the infusion of growth factors results in a remarkable improvement of skin texture, reduction of fine lines and a noticeable difference in the overall appearance of aging skin. Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins that work together to control cellular activity, proliferation and differentiation. They generally act in close proximity to where they are produced and are critical in skin repair and remodeling. Growth factors are essential proteins that make your body think and act younger.
CO2 Laser Treatments
The CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method (columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column intact to aid in healing) to help reduce “age-spots” (also called sun freckles, liver spots, and lentigines), fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, uneven coloration, skin laxity, textural irregularities, dull tone, and a thinned collagen layer of the face, neck, and chest. CO2 is the best treatment if you wish to get the most results with one treatment. If you have the ability to take some time to heal (7-14 days), having this one treatment is like having multiple other non-invasive treatments at once. It is also the best single treatment for advanced skin damage and wrinkling. CO2 is an in-office procedure that requires pre and post-treatment medications to ensure proper healing and comfort during the procedure. Discomfort varies on the depth of the treatment. For your comfort during the treatment, we may apply a topical anesthetic or inject local anesthetic and/or tumescent anesthetic and prescribe sedative medications to reduce discomfort.
The Exilis skin tightening and fat removal treatment was designed to be painless and comfortable. There are no needles on injections involved. Exilis skin tightening works by stimulating collagen production within the skin. The specific radio frequencies unravel the collagen fibers, causing fibroblasts to start producing more of this protein. This can have a skin tightening effect in the long term, by building up the fiber network in the skin. Exilis is also used for the purposes of fat reduction. By delivering the radiofrequency deeper into the tissues, the Exilis technology can “melt away” the fat. The actual process works by using energy to destroy the fat cells, which are then broken down and removed from the treatment area by the body’s natural processes.
ReFirme™ is a safe, non-invasive, therapy that dramatically repairs skin laxity and reduces fine lines, leaving skin smoother, firmer, and more youthful without the risks and recovery required by invasive procedures. Results are natural looking and require a minimal amount of maintenance to keep clients looking their best. It is the only skin tightening treatment that combines the use of both infrared light and radio frequency technology to significantly improve the skin’s tone and elasticity. When applied to the skin, the infrared light heats the tissue of the skin. The heat acts as a conductor to allow the radio frequency to penetrate the dermal layers more deeply and easily. As the radio frequency energy permeates the tissues it causes the skin to contract and tighten while stimulating collagen production for a period of at least 90 days, a process called Collagen Remodeling. Clients notice significant improvements in the tone and contour of the skin as it becomes tighter and firmer. ReFirme has been approved by the FDA and has little to no risk of serious complications. Because of the combination of infrared light and radio frequency energy used in Refirme™ therapy, the treatment is painless. The length of treatment time depends on the area treated. In general, treatment time is approximately 60 minutes. Following the treatment, no recovery time is necessary and clients can return to daily activities. Ideal candidates for ReFirme™ are those with skin laxity concerns of the facial skin, jowl, and neck as well as sagging brow lines and skin under the eyes. While many clients experience an immediate improvement, an initial series of 3 treatments is recommended to receive the optimal results of ReFirme™ therapy. Advanced skin laxity may require 6 treatments. Ideally, treatments will be administered once every 30 days for three months. Following ReFirme™ treatment, we recommend that our clients invest in Persona’s recommended skin care regimen to ensure and maintain optimal results. Recommended healthy skin care practices are required and include avoiding excessive sun and UV exposure and applying a daily SPF 30 sunscreen. In most cases, when skin is well taken care of, clients can enjoy the results of ReFirme™ therapy for up to 24 months before maintenance treatments are needed.
Ultherapy is a revolutionary new nonsurgical procedure that uses ultrasound to lift as well as tone loose skin without any downtime. It is not a laser and is safe on all skin types because it penetrates and by- passes the top layer of the skin, lifting and tightening from the inside out. Ultrasound energy focuses sound waves below the skin and stimulates the tissue to tighten and contract. Ultherapy works by delivering ultrasound energy focused at a specific depth to gently heat the tissue, thereby stimulating the renewal of existing collagen and creation of new collagen. Ultherapy targets the deep foundation below the skin without disrupting the skin surface, unlike surgery or lasers. The procedure allows the Practitioner to see the layers of tissue and muscle being treated to ensure precise delivery of energy where it is most needed. The procedure takes about 60-70 minutes depending on the areas treated. Ultherapy has been cleared by the FDA after demonstrating safety in clinical studies and tens of thousands of treatments have been performed worldwide without any significant adverse events. Good candidates for Ultherapy are men and women with good skin quality and mild to moderate laxity in the mid-lower face, neck, brows and eyelids. Ultherapy is not a facelift but an aesthetic lift of the facial skin and neck. It is ideal for someone who does not want surgery. One treatment is recommended for mild to moderate skin laxity. Clients with extensive laxity who are surgical candidates and do not want to pursue an invasive treatment option may require more than one treatment. Following an Ultherapy treatment, the skin may appear slightly red but this disappears within a few hours. Makeup can be reapplied immediately afterward if desired. Some clients may experience slight swelling and/or tingling/tenderness to the touch for a few days to weeks, which are mild and temporary. Clients can return to work after the procedure, or plan to go out to dinner the same night. While there may be an immediate improvement, most of the lifting and tightening occurs gradually as the treated area heals itself, resulting in a natural appearance. The long term results and the majority of tightening and lifting of the skin occur after 3 months. Collagen renewal continues and further improvements can be seen even after 6 months.
Photofacial™ (also known as Fotofacial™) is an innovative, non-invasive therapy that utilizes advanced light technology to treat skin that has been damaged or discolored as a result of sun exposure, acne, or other dermatological conditions like rosacea and hyperpigmentation. Photofacial treatment works by the application of gently-pulsed, intense light (IPL) on the surface of the skin. The heat and energy that the light creates is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels that cause redness. As it absorbs the light and energy, collagen production is stimulated and the skin begins a natural healing process that restores a healthy and youthful tone to skin. Unlike some more aggressive laser and facial peel treatments that can burn the surface of the skin, Photofacial relies on the energy and heat of light therapy to penetrate deeper, destroying unwanted pigmented lesions and visible capillaries to reverse skin damage and discoloration from within. The length of treatment time depends on the area being treated. In general, treatments will last between 45-60 minutes. Following treatment, no recovery time is necessary and clients are able to return to daily activities. The results of cleared pigment and reduced redness can be expected in 7-10 days. Photofacial is an ideal option for those who want a non-invasive, gentle, and easy way to erase freckles, age spots, redness, sun damage, and the appearance of visible capillaries and mild scarring. The number of treatments required to successfully achieve the desired result varies from client to client. Many of our clients see a significant improvement in the look and feel of their skin within the first week. In general, three to five treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results. Some clients require an occasional touch-up or reapplication to keep their skin looking its best; however, by investing in a skin care regimen following the treatment, you can ensure that the benefits will be long-lasting. There is little or no risk of serious complications from Photofacial treatment. The most common side effects experienced by our clients are temporary redness and darkening of the pigmentation in treated areas. Patients should limit sun and UV exposure for several weeks before and after treatments in order to reduce their risk of complications and ensure the best possible results.
