EMSlim Body Sculpting
(body shaping with magnetic waves)
EMSlim is a unique method to tighten the buttocks without surgery or to remove annoying fat deposits on the hips and abdomen non-invasively. During an EMSlim treatment, around 16% muscle is built up and around 19% fat is lost in the same process. The treatment helps in the long term to a toned and fit body image.
Is a treatment painful?
Treatment with the EMSlim Nova device is not associated with pain. Muscle vibrations are created with two plates, which can be a little unusual in the first session. But you get used to it quickly and after a few minutes you even feel the movement as pleasant and calming.
When can results be seen?
For an effective result of EMSlim Nova treatment, four sessions at intervals of two to three days are usually necessary — at least 48 hours must be in between. Just four to six weeks after the last session, you can look forward to the effect of the treatment, which will only increase over the next few weeks.
What are the benefits of this type of treatment?
In contrast to surgical body lifting, EMSlim is neither associated with downtimes nor with anesthesia risks . By using the innovative applicator, no cuts are necessary, so there are no scars. The treatment does not require any specific preparation or follow-up.
Benefits of EMSlim:
Non-Surgical Muscle Sculpting
The EMSlimPRO® high intensity pulsed electromagnetic stimulation offers a continuous contraction. This contraction does not involve muscle relaxation and the muscle works at its maximum capacity. These extreme contraction conditions require the muscle to adapt and develop muscular mass over the treated area and burn fat in the background.
Results You Can See
EMSlim results are similar to the results of months of time spent at the gym building muscle and losing fat. Many people will notice results within the 2 to 6 weeks following treatment and they will continue to improve in the months following. A positive lifestyle of proper food intake and exercise with help maintain the effect.
How does EMSlim Work:
The Intensive supra-maximal contractions stimulate the react of the muscles. The energy reconstructs internal structure, causing the regrowth of muscle cells, the creation of protein, and muscle fiber chains. This procedure leads the results in higher density and muscle volume.
The muscle-building improve the epinephrine release, which brings an obvious effect that leads to supra-maximal lipolysis in fat cells.
Circulation of lymphatic improvement
The electro magnetic waves stimulate the hemoglobin, increases blood flow, lymphatic circulation. The procedure increases that dead fat cells are eliminated naturally.
Helps with Diastasis recti
A condition in which the large abdominal muscles separate.
Diastasis recti is common in women who are over 35, deliver a high birth weight baby, or have a multiple pregnancy. It's usually most noticeable right after delivery. It also occurs in middle aged and older men with abdominal obesity.

Am I a Candidate for Micropigmentation?You may NOT have this procedure if : You are under 18 You get Keloid scars You are pregnant or breastfeeding You have been on Accutane within 1 year You have irritation of the skin of any kind such as blemishes, pimples, rash, psoriosis, eczema, rosacea, sunburn on the area of procedure. You are on Retin-A or Retinols. Be off 7 days before appointment and avoid 30 days after procedure. Diabetic (consult your doctor) Have HIV or Hepatitus or any other viral infections and/or diseases Undergoing Chemotherapy (consult your doctor) Epilepsy A Pacemaker or major heart problems Had an Organ transplant You generally don’t heal well and develop infections easily. Microblading works BEST on these types of skin: Dry skin type with tiny pores. Skin that’s thin but not super thin (I like to compare this skin to a grape). This type of skin is usually not very sensitive with non-translucent fair ivory skin tone and doesn’t bleed easily Normal to combination skin-type with small pores can be abit oily to dry and sensitive or not sensitive (I like to compare this skin to an apple). This type of skin is usually non-translucent and can range from light to dark skin tones, young or mature skin and doesn’t bleed easily. Normal to Oily skin with medium pores. Skin that is thicker and abit oily ( I like to compare this skin to a lime). This type of skin is usually non-translucent and can range from light to dark skin tones, young or mature skin and doesn’t bleed easily. Microblading will NOT WORK WELL for these types of skin: Thick oily skin with large pores, tends to bleed easily (I like to compare this skin to an orange peel or grapefruit). The skin texture and constant production of oil will cause the hairstrokes to heal with a thicker diffused, softer look. I can work on this type of skin, however, you must be aware that your end result will look more powdered and blended than you would expect. Super-thin, soft, hypersensitive, skin with barely any upper skin layer (I like to compare this type of skin to a peeled hard boiled egg or tomato, or sometimes like a marshmallow). Usually translucent and pale with invisible pores and can have rosacea or dermatitis. This type of skin bleeds VERY easily, has a harder time healing, Pigment can appear more ashy, blurred and patchy. If you have an old tattoo that is still quite dark, the strokes will blend right into the old tattoo and results will not look as crisp as going over blank skin (**see ” Can we cover up or remove my old tattoo done by another artist?”). If you are a frequent smoker, your pigment may fade sooner. If you are iron deficient or Anemic, your pigment may fade sooner and bleeding/bruising may occur during and after the procedure. If you generally have problematic skin, bleed excessively, get infections easily, and do not heal well when cut or injured, you may want to reconsider having this procedure as the results are extremely dependant on the healing process.
What do I need to know BEFORE my appointment?Please be aware: Do NOT DRINK ALCOHOL or CAFFEINE before the procedure (at least 24hrs for alcohol) Do NOT TAKE ADVIL or other blood thinners such a Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48-72 hrs prior to your procedure. Extra strength Tylenol can be taken if you have low pain tolerance. If you have recently tanned this will affect the outcome of the healed colour. If you’ve had laser removal of previous work done by someone else, the treated area has now more scar tissue and can affect the outcome of the result. More treatments may be necessary to have the skin take the colour. Botox should be done 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after the procedure. Avoid exercising the day of procedure as this will open up the pores. Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle. No waxing, threading or tinting 3 days before Immediately following your procedure, the tattooed area will appear to be darker and bolder in color and more sharply defined. Over the next 2 days it will appear even darker and thicker as scabs begin to form. You must let the scabs naturally flake off bit by bit. It will take up to 14 days for scabbing to be over. You may NOT get the area wet for too long or apply any kind of products (except what I provide for your aftercare) for at least 10 days after. NO makeup on the area for 2 weeks. For Eyebrow Microblading: If your natural eyebrows are dramatically uneven, you may have to give up a significant amount of your eyebrow hairs or choose a much thicker shape to achieve better symmetry. If those options are not desired and symmetry is not a concern for you, you may opt to tattoo over the natural flow of each eyebrow. If we are covering up an old tattoo previously done by another artist, please come with realistic expectations of what is possible to achieve. If the former tattoo is extremely uneven or dramatic in shape, we may not be able to achieve your exact desired shape or symmetry. Any hairstrokes done within the old tattoo may blend in and will not be as crisp, giving an appearance of unevenness in color and the old tattoo will still show through the new hairstrokes. All options will be discussed during the consultation, and tattooing will not start until the final design is agreed upon so please come prepared with an idea in mind of how you would like to design your eyebrows. Having pictures available will help me have a clear vision of what you are trying to achieve.
Can I have a tattoo done by another Artist covered up or Corrected?** PLEASE SEND A PHOTO OF YOUR OLD TATTOO PRIOR TO BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT!!! NOTE THAT YOUR OLD TATTOO MUST BE VERY FADED IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE DESIRED RESULTS!!! GOING OVER AN OLD TATTOO THAT IS STILL TOO DARK WILL GIVE YOU DISAPPOINTING RESULTS, so it is best to remove the old tattoo first, before getting microblading done!!! If we are covering up an old tattoo previously done by another artist, please come with realistic expectations of what is possible to achieve. If the former tattoo is extremely uneven or dramatic in shape, we may not be able to achieve your exact desired shape or symmetry. Any hairstrokes done within the old tattoo may blend in and will not be as crisp, giving an appearance of unevenness in color and the old tattoo will still show through the new hairstrokes. If there is a build up of scar tissue, the strokes may not hold as well in those areas. Specifications on an exact color after healed is not guarenteed. If you want to correct the color of your old tattoo (that has faded to red/orange/blue/gray) so it doesn’t end up showing between the hairstrokes, color correcting can be an option by shading in the area with a color correcting pigment done by machine. This must be done at least 6 weeks prior to an Eyebrow Feathering appointment. Hairstrokes will still not be as crisp with color correcting. Please keep in mind that the pigment I use are semi permanent and do fade over time which means that the color of your old tattoo will still be there as my pigment fades. You will need touchups to maintain a neutralized color For optimum results with Microblading, you may also opt to remove your old tattoo . This option may require several sessions (done before your microblading procedure at least 8 weeks apart) for desired results. It works by implanting a special saline solution to lift out the old pigment. The healing process will be the same as the tattoo treatment. Although great results are achievable in most cases, every case is circumstantial and there is no guarantee for how many sessions it will take to achieve desired results, or that the old tattoo will completely go away. All options will be discussed during the consultation, and tattooing will not start until the final design is agreed upon. Please contact to send a picture of your old tattoo prior to booking an appointment for cover up, colour correcting, and removal treatments to eliminate the risk of losing your deposit due to not being able to work over the old tattoo.
What should I expect after my treatment?Immediately after, the area will be EXTREMELY dark and get darker over the next 2 days as a scab forms in the area. 30-50% of your pigment will be in the scabs. Over the next 7-14 days your scabs should flake off bit by bit. Some people scab in light flakes and some develop a thick scab. Everybody is different, but whatever you do, do NOT pick at the scabs and make sure you read through and follow the AFTERCARE INSTUCTIONS properly to obtain the best results. If the scabbing phase is not over by 14 days, please continue your Aftercare intructions until scabs are completly gone. After the scabbing phase is over, you will see that the color of your pigment appears foggy and muted in color because a layer of skin has grown over the pigment to seal it in. Not to worry, over the next several weeks your skin will regenerate and the pigment will be more vibrant in color. The complete healing process takes at least 6 weeks which is when the true orientation of the pigment will show. For most people, there shouldn’t be too much of a problem going to work or being out in public, as long as you’re good at following aftercare instructions. However, some people may develop thicker scabs and have minor swelling. You may take an Advil or apply an icepack after your treatment to reduce swelling and discomfort. Getting them wet for prolonged periods of time may cause premature lifting of your scabs and increase the chance of infections and loss of pigment. If you get them wet, you must blot them dry immediately to avoid complications and undesired results such as smudgey blurred lines, scar tissue, and uneven pigment. You also must avoid sweating in that area for at least 10 days. Salt draws out pigment and you will be left with undersirable results. Chemicals found in makeup and cleansers may alter the color of the pigment and affect the healing process so it would be best to wash around it. No makeup on the brows for at least two weeks but everywhere else is fine.
How Long does Semi-permanent Makeup last?They fade over time and should be refreshed every 1-1. 5 years for maintenance. Fading is desired as your skin and facial structure will change as aging occurs. However this does not mean that your semi-permanent makeup will completely disappear. Depending on your skin and health, overtime your semi-permanent makeup may leave a soft haze of residual pigment behind. It is recommended to refresh them before 2 years and no sooner than 1 year. If they have faded before a year, you may fill them in with makeup and wait after 1 year to come back for additional touchups to avoid too much trauma to your skin. These factors will cause your semi-permanent tattoo to fade faster: Iron deficiency Sun exposure Exfoliants Strong immune systems Exposure to salt water
What Pigment do you use?I use iron oxide pigments. These pigments fade over time as your body will naturally absorb it. They are considered the safest semi-permanent pigments to use for skin.
