The SvelTi Aesthetic Centre, the premiere health, wellness, and beauty center in Metro Manila, has recently launched three cutting-edge treatments that can address stress-related medical conditions.
Lumbago treats back pains caused by a high-pressure lifestyle. Cellushape reduces bulging body parts, such as arms and legs, which have been caused by an accumulation of cellulite. Hollywood Vita Facial removes wrinkles and other blemishes from the face, while infusing it with nutrients that can make its skin even healthier. All of these treatments are non-intrusive, require very little downtime, and show their results very quickly.
The pressures of work, family, the management of their own businesses, and the traffic gridlock combined have resulted in high levels of stress for working professionals, executives, and entrepreneurs. Young adults who are coping with peer pressure, school demands, and a sense of alienation brought by too much time on social media are also prone to depression. All these unresolved emotional and mental issues can manifest in a lot of ways throughout their bodies, damaging their health.
Lumbago for a limber back
The first medical condition to be addressed is back pain, which can be a result of constant stress that is no being given relief or addressed. The muscles around their lower back and spine tighten to the point of rigidity. Even the person who regularly exercises is not immune to this condition. However, the ones who are probably most at risk are those who agonize over deadlines and sit at their desks more than six hours a day. The person with back pain finds it hard to move around. Sometimes, certain sitting or standing positions can add to their discomfort. The accumulation of inconvenience and pain then dampens his or her mood, and triggers more sadness, irritation, or anger — which further adds to the stress he is already experiencing. The added stress increases the back pain, and the cycle goes on.
Lumbago relieves the patience of the stress-induced pain in a mere 40-minute relaxing therapeutic session. The patient lies on a very comfortable bed as the machine stimulates his nervous system with short, steady bursts of electricity. The electricity sends signals to the patient’s brain, prompting the nervous system and the surrounding muscles to relax. The warmth and heat generated by the process also crushes the cold particles in the body that have caused the patient’s back to stiffen.
Cellushape: a more flattering
Cellushape is mostly for female patients who tend to suffer the build-up of cellulite. It manifests in fatty, loose skin that bloats up arms, legs, thighs, buttocks. Though it is harmless from a medical perspective, cellulite does make the skin look lumpy, uneven, and ultimately unflattering. It is attributed to the growth of fat cells which inevitably push up against the epidermis. The affected body parts become plump and acquire a rotund shape.
Cellushape is an ultrasound-like treatment that focuses on the bulging body parts, and send sound waves to penetrate the skin and break down the fatty substances. The treatment is done in a very relaxing environment; with the patient lying down comfortably on the bed as the nurse administers the treatment. For less than an hour, Cellushape concentrates on the fatty tissues, slowly melting them from within. After the treatment, it activates a massage-like procedure that flushes out the now pulverized fats from the body.
Cellushape can take more than one session if the cellulites on affected body parts prove stubborn. Interestingly, some people use Cellushape, not to trim down fat, but to shape their legs into a more appealing appearance.
Hollywood Vita Facial
Unlike most other facial treatments, the Hollywood Vita Facial makes its effects last longer. Fresh, smooth skin replaces blemishes, wrinkles, and other anti-aging effects. The ‘new look’ can last for days and highlight the patient’s best facial features even with just minimal make-up.
The secret to Hollywood Vita Facial lies in its nutrients. The treatment places anti-aging, natural elements on the patient’s face during cleansing. Its combination of vitamins and minerals is then embedded under the skin to effectively bring about the transformative changes. Collagen, for example, rejuvenates the face and provides it stronger protection against pollutants, dirt, and anti-oxidants. Omega-3, which is usually in seafood and walnuts, prevents the onset of acne, irritation, itchiness, and inflammation. Vitamin E is responsible for making the cells on the face regenerate.
One Hollywood Vita Facial treatment removes fine lines, reduces the pores, and tightens the skin. Oftentimes, the skin glows with an eye-catching radiance, making the patient look younger and even happier.
