Reductive Massages

Corporal reductive massages are an ideal and quick way to lose those extra centimeters that tend to accumulate around the hips, legs and arms. They are also ideal when it comes to treating that annoying condition called ‘cellulite’. However, these massages need to be performed by a specialist, such as the expert masseuses of Better Looks, since they can lead to a decrease in muscle tone if they are not performed correctly.

Reductive massages act on the conjunctive tissue and help to optimize the irrigation of the lymphatic and circulatory systems. Reduction takes place when the fatty acids and toxins accumulated in the problem areas are liberated. This type of procedure is ideal for:

* Reducing localized deposits of fat located in the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, back, arms, thighs, calves, etc. It is possible to go down from 1 to 5 sizes in 15 sessions.
* Reducing the small bulges on the abdomen, waist, hips and back that sometimes remain after a liposuction and/or liposculpture.
* Improving your facial profile; this involves the reduction of localized fat in the cheeks, chin and neck.
* Eliminating cellulite.
* Reaffirming corporal sagginess, lifting your buttocks and breasts in a completely natural way.

This beauty treatment is a mechanical procedure that used a power-drive (hand held device equipped with a rotating metal wheel) that used a wire brush of a diamond fraise to remove the upper layers of the skin.

The results of dermabrasion are actually permanent, making it an ideal technique for treating skin acne, removing scars or tattoos and promoting new skin growth. When we say permanent, we mean that it has long term effects (up to 1 year or more). Sometimes, patients repeat the dermabrasion treatment but this requires for the skin to be healed completely from the previous session. However, you must keep in mind that this procedure does not prevent new wrinkles from appearing in the natural aging process.

Dermabrasion is a one-session treatment, requiring another yearly session for maintenance. The treatment consists of 6 to 12 sessions, scheduled 2 weeks apart and usually require a once every 2-3 months session for maintenance.

Usually, this technique of skin abrasion requires local anesthesia, depending on the size of the area that is being treated. Before starting, your specialist will clean the region with an antiseptic cleaning gel. After doing so, he/she will start the skin-peeling process using the rotating wheel of the machine until the desired depth of the dermis is reached.

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic genital surgical procedure that reduces the size or changes the shape of the small lips on the outside of the vagina (labia minora). A significant number of women are born with large or irregular labia. Others may develop this condition after childbirth or with aging. The appearance of the enlarged labia can cause embarrassment with a sexual partner or loss of self esteem.

Lots of women feel uncomfortable or irritated when wearing tight clothing, having sexual relations or exercising due to their large/thick labia. Women whose labia become irritated and painful will often find relief after surgery. Labiaplasty surgery can greatly enhance the cosmetic appearance of the outer vagina giving many women greater confidence and making them feel better about themselves.

If you are experiencing sexual dysfunction or embarrassment because your labia (labia minora) are over-sized or asymmetrical, this surgery may be the solution you have been looking for. At the same time, women who have long or hanging vaginal lips/genetalia can benefit from a labia reduction. Some women have always been this way, whereas others develop the problem after childbirth or as they get older. Simultaneously, women who dislike the large size or shape of their labia, which may cause inelegance or awkwardness with a sexual partner, can also be candidates for this surgery.

Please feel free to get in contact with Better Looks if you wish to receive more information. We’d be more than happy to assist you!

Permanent Eyeliner

Permanent make-up is perfect for active women who always need to look their best but cannot afford the time to apply make-up throughout the day. At the end of the day, your make-up looks as though it was just freshened. You can select your color of make-up from a wide selection of shades or a new shade can be created just for you.

Permanent eyeliner is possible through a procedure called micropigmentation. This technique involves the embedding of an organic pigment beneath the skin to add permanent color. The treatment involves the use of a hand-held device that punctures the skin hundreds of times per minute with a very thin needle and pushes the pigment into the desired location. In addition to defining the eyes, micropigmentation is used to enhance eyebrows and lips, creating a permanent look of blush and eye shadow.

The color of your permanent make-up is applied by using an applicator designed especially for facial cosmetic tattooing. This tool gives your specialist the highest degree of control for fine detailed work. The whole procedure is performed while using sterile supplies.

If you are interested in this procedure, feel free to browse the spa treatment section of our website. You can also send us a message with any questions you may have or if you are interested in getting this procedure performed.

Laser Teeth Whitening

The discoloration of the teeth enamel can have many different causes. Factors such as aging, chemical damage or discoloration can greatly affect its development. Some of the more common causes of teeth discoloration are medications, coffee, tea or cigarettes. At the same time, people who drink significant amounts of cola soft drinks can experience similar staining.

During the procedure, a translucent bleaching gel is applied to the teeth and then laser light is applied. The laser activates the crystals in the gel, which absorb the energy and penetrate the teeth enamel to increase the lightening effect on the teeth. The extent of the whitening depends on the degree of discoloration of your teeth. Generally, one visit is all it takes to obtain a brighter smile. Keep in mind though, the sudden change in the color of your teeth will be noticed by those around you right away.

However, you must remember that laser whitening is not a permanent procedure. Depending on your personal habits and dental hygiene, results can last for one to or more years. Usually, the procedure is very effective and you will definitely be pleased with the results.

If you are interested in more information, please visit the cosmetic dentistry section of our website. Additionally, you can send us an email to set up an appointment! Our staff will be more than happy to set you on the right track to a brighter smile.

IPL Treatment

If you want to permanently remove hair from your legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back or chest, then Better Looks has the perfect treatment for you! At Betterlooks we received many messages from customers who want to remove hair permanently. Better Looks always gives the same suggestion; IPL hair treatment.

In addition to eliminate hair, this treatment can help define clean lines. Not only will no longer have the need for shaving or waxing, but also can avoid hair 'red' and irregularities on the surface of the skin. With this treatment you will be completely free of hair and you will benefit with a rejuvenated and smoother skin.

In general, the technique of IPL requires that patients make about 6 trips to the doctor's office for 'clean' an area of the body effectively, also IPL works better with dark hair and thick.

Although IPL and laser light used to cause thermal damage to the hair follicles, differences between treatments. IPL uses specific wavelengths of light, which optimize the absorption by the pigment melanin in the hair and at the same time, minimize the damage to the skin. It differs from the laser because it can manage high levels of energy using optimal light waves, causing less damage to the skin.
