Yes, Ultrasonic Body Sculpting is safe, comfortable, no-pain, non-invasive procedure with virtually no side effects. It does not require anesthesia, leaves no scars and does not require any post treatment. The ultrasound energy is designed to target fatty tissues beneath the skin only, and does not affect the blood vessels, nerves or connective tissues.
Ultrasonic Sculpting is painless. A slight tingling buzzing in the ear may sometimes be noticed during the treatment but this is not uncomfortable. Some warm sensations may also be felt during treatment but no pain. Any slight reddening of the skin which may sometimes develop during or soon after treatment, quickly disappears.
Ultrasonic Sculpting can be used safely on most parts of the body. Examples of the most commonly treated areas include: Thighs (saddle bags), Abdomen (including love handles), Hips (flanks), Buttocks, Upper arm.
Ultrasonic Sculpting Treatment times may vary depending on the area being treated but a typical session will last from 30 minutes to an hour. This includes the preparation, treatment and post-treatment procedures.
Yes, the Ultrasonic Sculpting has been shown to work well on cellulite (the appearance of dimpled skin) by focusing the sculpturing effect on the cellulite fat tissue.

The ultrasonic sculpting treatment will often yield immediate results which you can feel, touch and see and it can be long lasting. Some clients can experience 1 to 5cm (about 2 inches) of circumference reduction after a single session, with increasing results after subsequent visits. However, more significant results will be noticed after the second and third treatment.
Ultrasonic sculpting is a method for reshaping and toning the body. It is not a treatment for obesity or a weight loss procedure. It is intended in particular, to reduce localized fat tissues which are resistant to weight loss and exercise. Areas of the body that are particularly popular for treatments are the abdomen (love handles), buttocks, and thighs (saddle bags), where fat deposits won’t easily go away.
There are virtually no side effects with Ultrasonic Body Sculpting. However, on rare occasions there may be a slight possibility of mild side effects such as transient redness, excessive thirst, or nausea, that occur immediately after the treatment and which are invariably resolved by drinking water. These are all short–term effects that disappear in a few hours.
While receiving Ultrasonic Body Sculpting, drink plenty of water both before and after treatments. Drinking water is a necessary part of the treatment to facilitate the elimination of the broken down fat. Immediately, after the treatment, patients are able to return to their daily activities as usual.
Change is noticeable after the first ultrasonic body sculpting treatment. The required number of treatments to achieve desired results is dependant on numerous factors. Consult with a ChiQuePharma Clinic Healthcare Professional for a the prescribed protocol most suitable for you and your wishes.

If you’re >30 pounds overweight, you can’t afford not to join our weight loss program. Are you tired of feeling tired and out of energy? Ill-health and injuries due to being overweight or obese can quickly add up and may need costly treatments. What’s worse is, if you become ill or injured and don’t take care to properly heal yourself, then the illness or injury becomes a chronic problem, which leads to worsening states of health.

Since excess weight leads to injury or ill-health, invest in yourself today, you’ll feel better and you’re worth it.

The best way to manage this journey is to take it on as a primary project for the next 6 months. After attending our initial consultations and receiving the program that best suits you, we set up your series of appointments. We highly recommend this commitment for 6 months. The benefits are for the rest of your life. After the first 6 months your habits will be modified as you continue practicing what you learned and accessing the Clinic as you need to.

While Hydrafacial MD and Hydrafacial are used interchangeably, Hydrafacial MD refers to authentic Medical Hydrafacial. Be careful of impostors, only Hydrafacial MD will delivers authentic Hydrafacial treatments.
The Hydrafacial MD treatment is a revolutionary breakthrough in aesthetic technology. Hydrafacial takes its name from the root word Hydrate; “to cause to take up moisture”. This ability to moisturize the skin separates the Hydrafacial from all other skin resurfacing procedures. Rather than employ a standard scrubbing technique, Hydrafacial uses patented technology known as “vortex technique” and there’s more. The Hydrafacial Vortex Technology acts like a gentle scrub and a vacuum at the same time, cleaning your skin, exfoliating it, and extracting oils and impurities.
Hydrafacial is an invigorating treatment that removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective. It compliments many other skin treatments like microneedling, Venus VIVA or Legacy, Fraxel, botox, facial fillers, or laser treatments. At ChiQuePharma, Hydrafacial MD Treatments are an excellent component in our Skin Fitness Programs.
At ChiQuePharma Clinic, once your face has been cleansed, the Hydrafacial treatment begins with gentle lymphatic drainage to improve circulation, as well as detoxify, tone, and firm skin. Since 33% of the lymphatic system is in the face, the gentle lymphatic massage stimulates the opening of the lymphatic system, increases lymph flow, and assists in the drainage of stagnant cellular fluid and released toxins.
Applying the Vortex Technique, a deplaning technique gently strips the outer layer of your skin, opening the pores. Makeup, dirt, and oil get pulled away. There is a gentle peeling step, applying fruit acids with Vortex Technology resulting in visible skin rejuvenation. While this step may mildly tingle, there is no irritation. The extraction step utilizes a multi-action specialized skin solution formulated to prevent congestion and the build-up of impurities. With the hydrating step, your skin is rehydrated with a specially formulated solution combining deeply moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid with replenishing botanical antioxidants. This powerful formula naturally detoxifies and protects skin from environmental free-radicals and replenishes skin’s natural elasticity and hydration.
The Hydrafacial Treatment delivers long-term skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.

The person doing your treatment is as important as the technology, if not more so. At ChiQuePharma Clinic, we offer our patients a highly-skilled team that is guided by Rhonda Dorren, founder of ChiQuePharma Clinic and dedicated to everyone who attends ChiQuePharma Clinic for treatments.
For best results, ChiQuePharma Clinic clients come in on a monthly basis. Unlike some medical aesthetics treatments which can be a little uncomfortable, Hydrafacials are a very pleasant experience.

For patients who have skin conditions that require repair, such as severely clogged pores and oily skin, or severely damaged and dehydrated skin, we suggest a series of prescribed weekly treatments followed by monthly maintenance.
One of the best things about Hydrafacial MD treatment is that there is no downtime. You can go right back to what you were doing right before the Hydrafacial Treatment. The only difference is that your skin will look and feel great!
