Hot & Cold

SOME LIKE IT HOT
Try a hot-sculpting service to comfortably “melt” away fat. SculpSure is a noninvasive body-contouring treatment that is designed to reduce fat in hallmark trouble areas, such as the abdomen. Targeted laser energy heats and destroys fat cells, which are later eliminated by the body. (New Beauty & Wellness; newbeautywellness.com)

TURN UP THE HEAT
Treat facial sagging and fine lines with noninvasive ThermiSmooth. With a series of treatments, the skin becomes tighter and fine lines soften. It uses temperature-controlled radio frequency to heat the skin’s surface, which causes the body to produce more collagen, which leads to firmer skin. Because a cooling gel is used during each treatment, clients experience only mild heat. (Greenwich Medical Spa; greenwichmedicalspa.com)

LIGHT IT UP
“This new laser technology and methodology biologically mimic exactly how your body breaks down fat through exercise and diet,” notes Dr. Jason Lord—owner of a new fat-loss and skin-tightening center—on the patented Red Laser Light System. “It works with your body in a natural, painless and, most important, sustainable way.” (Laser Body Renewal; laserbodyrenewal.com)


RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE
Neither hot nor cold—but, rather, just the perfect temperature for easing stress. Try a floating session. Neuroscientist John C. Lilly invented the flotation tank in 1954 to research how the brain reacts to sensory deprivation. These days, you step into your own spacious float room (big enough to stand up in), and let the shallow water and serenity help you deeply relax and reflect. Along with relieving stress, it is meant to ease pain and benefit creativity and athletic performance. To compliment the floating experience, iFloat also offers a series of seminars based on Lilly’s research that help people understand and make lasting adjustments to their thinking.

GOING TO EXTREMES
Staying safe in the middle is wise for most days, but sometimes you want to go to one extreme or the other. Enter the new Fire and Ice Facial by iS Clinical®. The treatment resurfaces the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as smooth and soften. It also boosts cellular renewal. Enjoy the Intensive Resurfacing Masque (Fire) and the Rejuvenating Masque (Ice)—and spicy cinnamon and cool peppermint aromas. (Available at Dream Spa’s Greenwich location; dreamdayspa.com)


THAT’S COOL
A noninvasive treatment to shape the abdomen, back, thighs, arms, chin and other stubborn areas you want reshaped, CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. “CoolSculplting has become the gold standard for noninvasive fat removal,” says Dr. Joseph O’Connell, who has more than thirty-five years of experience in body contouring. “We’ve offered it for the past six years.” The new CoolAdvantage applicators speed up the treatment.

ICE COLD
When it’s hot outside, head indoors for an icy blast. Try a cryotherapy treatment (up to three minutes) that reduces inflammation, boosts metabolic rate, increases collagen production and invigorates. Endorphins released can help alleviate pain, boost energy and increase body’s natural healing abilities. Otherwise, step into the infrared sauna, which uses infrared light to heat you, not the air. It’s supposed to rid the body of toxins, increase circulation and promote muscle healing. (Restore Cryotherapy; restorecryotherapy.com)
