What is Myofascial Cupping?

Myofascial cupping is an extension of other myofascial release therapies which treat skeletal-muscle immobility and pain by releasing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.

The cupping therapy uses vacuumed cups on the body, combining compression and negative pressure when applied to the tissue being treated. This method is typically easier to tolerate in areas of restriction making it the ideal treatment for chronic injuries and restoring mobility.

Myofascial cupping has its origins in traditional cupping methods with a few modern, scientifically-informed changes. Traditional cupping actually dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians were using cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.E!

Myofascial cupping and traditional forms of cupping differ through a number of notable reasons. Firstly, whereas traditional cupping works through the strategic placement and parking of the cups along the meridian pathways, Myofascial cupping aims to directly treat the affected, targeted tissues. Myofascial cupping also leaves little to no markings, whereas traditional forms tend to leave large unsightly round, bruise like markings which can last weeks. Finally, massage is incorporated throughout the Myofascial cupping treatment.

What is Photo Rejuvenation at The Gilded Pear?

Photo Rejuvenation or photorejuvenation (also known as photofacials) effectively treats red and brown dyschromia/hyperpigmentation and facial telangiectasia while improving the skin’s texture and tone. Our process allows us to accurately target your skin concern revealing visible results in as little as 1-3 treatments spaced at 4 weeks apart. Photorejuvenation is used for a variety of skin concerns and used not only to correct skin imperfections such as freckles and sun spots, but to improve the overall skin complexion.

Photo Rejuvenation effectively treats:

• Facial Telangiectasia
• Rosacea
• Hyperpigmentation
• Age spots/sun spots
• Diffused redness and small facial capillaries
• Uneven skins and dull complexions
• Fine lines and mild scarring
• Overall skin appearance

Immediately following your photofacial, photorejuvenation or photo rejuvenation treatment, brown spots/discolourations will start to darken and your skin may appear slightly pink. This typically lasts a few hours to possibly a few days. During a time span of one to three weeks post your photofacial treatment, the darkened spots will flake off and/or fade and facial capillaries or diffused redness will decrease.

Before beginning photo rejuvenation treatments at The Gilded Pear, we encourage all clients to visit us for a complimentary photo rejuvenation skin consultation. At this time we will analyze your skin and provide recommendations for which treatments are best for you based on your skin’s needs and your personal goals for your skin.

When you come in for your first photo rejuvenation or photorejuvenation treatment, we will begin by cleansing the skin. The face is mapped out or divided in small sections to ensure even coverage. Goggles are placed over the client’s eyes for safety. A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin. The photo rejuvenation hand piece is applied to the skin one pulse at a time. You will feel a sharp pinch with every photorejuvenation pulse.

Cellulite Elimination and Body Contouring at The Gilded Pear

Body contouring and cellulite elimination are now a possibility with treatments at The Gilded Pear. We use the Lumicell Wave 6 machine to create amazing results in a relatively short period of time.

Cellulite is a common skin condition experienced by most post-pubertal women, as a result of imbalance between the formation and elimination of fat in the body, most commonly in the thigh and buttock areas. Much gender specific fat deposition is based upon hormonal receptor site density and sensitivity in different body regions. Unfortunately, good diet and physical exercise conditioning do not effectively prevent the development of cellulite.

The Gilded Pear is proud to introduce the revolutionary technology in cellulite treatment with Lumicell Wave 6, the next generation of Lumicell Touch, which provides a complete epidermic, dermic, and hypodermic solution to eliminate cellulite. The Lumicell Wave 6 offers superior cellulite treatments through a method that not only addresses beauty, but also well-being and complete body relaxation. It is inspired by energy treatments that eliminate muscular and vascular tension and release vital energies.

What causes cellulite?

Cellulite develops in different stages, each increasingly influenced by estrogen hormones, poor circulation, water retention, increased fat cells, and loss of skin elasticity.

Can diet and exercise get rid of this unsightly problem?

Although diet and exercise are useful in reducing body weight, they have very little impact on cellulite. Since cellulite develops in different layers of skin, a combination of approaches is required to successfully reach and address cellulite at each specific layer.

lumicell 2What are the different stages and how can I recognize them?

Cellulite is classified into four categories

  • Stage 1: “Orange Peel” appearance visible only when pinching the skin
  • Stage 2: “Orange Peel” appearance visible without pinching the skin
  • Stage 3: ”Mattress-like” or “Dimpling” appearance, impaired circulation
  • Stage 4: All of the above in addition to A loss of skin elasticity causing fat clusters, rippling effect, and vascular problems such as spider veins and bruising

The Lumicell Wave 6 is the only cellulite management system that combines the finest technologies to successfully target all cellulite-related problems:

  • Heavy legs
  • Orange peel appearance
  • Dimpling of the skin
  • Rippling of the inner thighs
  • Localized fat deposits
  • Skin contour irregularities

Lumicell Wave 6 combines 4 non-invasive technologies, working together in synergy to target all cellulite related problems, body remodelling and drainage needs.

  • Photo-Pneumatic Massage: Pneumatic Massage
  • Infrared light 900nm
  • 1 MHz Ultrasound
  • Bipolar Radiofrequency
  • Needle Free Mesotherapy (optional)

Pneumatic Massage:

  • The skin is suctioned, lifted and rolled between two rollers;
  • Increases blood and lymphatic circulation;
  • Breaks down water pockets responsible for the skin’s dimpled appearance;
  • Softens the fibrous adhesions responsible for the skin’s pitted appearance.

Infrared light 900 nanometers:

  • Generates thermal action superior to 40 degrees Celsius on adipocytes;
  • Increases lipolytic activity by stimulating beta receptors;
  • Increases cellular energy as well as the skin’s repair and regeneration mechanisms;
  • Warms subcutaneous tissue, preparing them for Ultrasound and bipolar RF treatments.

The Photo-Pneumatic massage heads warm the subcutaneous tissues, making them more malleable. They stimulate local blood circulation and increase lipolysis. The photo-pneumatic function considerably improves the appearance of cellulite.

1 MHz Ultrasound:

  • This specific frequency is the only one that delivers dual action: it inhibits the Alpha receptors, responsible for storing fat (lipogenesis), while stimulating the Beta receptors, to induces lipolysis by increasing norepinephrine secretion which stimulate the natural elimination of fat.
  • High speed vibrations (1 million vibrations per second);
  • Generates thermal action superior to 50 degrees Celsius on adipocytes;
  • Reduces the amount of localized and hard to eliminate fat deposits, skin dimpling as well as the circumference of treated areas;
  • Improves silhouette and skin texture.

Bipolar Radiofrequency:

  • A technology that is exclusive to Silhouet-Tone. Safe and painless, this technology only delivers thermal energy to the deep sub-cutaneous tissue, with no risk of burning or discomfort.
  • Electromagnetic energy;
  • Significantly firms the dermis and deep subcutaneous tissue in a gradual and controlled manner;
  • Reshapes the silhouette by improving the skin’s firmness and regularize the skin’s superficial and deep relief;
  • Reduces fat deposits through successive thermolipolysis.

The fat cells are subjected to an assault from three types of heat inducing technologies, dramatically increasing the elimination of fat. The compounded thermal action is much greater than each one on its own.

Needle Free Mesotherapy:

  • Electroporation is used to help powerful lipolytic products that have a greater molecular weight penetrate through the cell membrane;
  • The percentage of product penetration is 65-95% vs. traditional galvanic current which is limited to 3-10%;
  • Significantly improves results of other treatments.

The Lumicell Wave 6 system consecutively treats both the subcutaneous and adipose layers in one session.
