SlimBodyXpress Launches the "Next Generation" of Body Contouring
by BWW News Desk - Sep 11, 2014

Women and men across the country have been searching for a way to slim, tighten, and tone their body shape without a cosmetic surgery procedure like liposuction or without the cost, time or discomfort seen with coolsculpting, radio frequency or liposonix. While hundreds of products are on the market claiming to do just that, a new technology that produces measurable results based on science has just been introduced in the Coachella Valley, California at Desert Health & Wellness ( This new technology, SlimBodyXpress, is a combination of two FDA approved therapies - infrared therapy and Cellulite EMS that delivers completely noninvasive fat removal, inch loss and cellulite reduction as well as toning, firming and tightening. 'The word 'revolutionary' gets thrown around a lot in the field of aesthetic medicine, especially in the context of laser and light-based treatments,' notes Dr. Ron Ristaino, DC, founder of Desert Health & Wellness. 'But after carefully reviewing the scientific studies and available literature, and seeing the system in action, I can wholeheartedly say that SlimBodyXpress is a revolutionary treatment for my patients who want to enhance their body shape without going under the knife.' In their clinical studies, patients receiving SlimBodyXpress, on average lost up to 16 inches and up to 6 clothing sizes in a very short period of time. The science behind this Coachella Valley body contouring technique is sound,' says Dr. Ron Ristaino. 'It may be hard for some people to believe, but science is now able to shape the body without surgery, without a strict diet, and without a rigorous exercise routine. The procedure requires no anesthesia or incisions, and within less than an hour in most cases your treatment session will be finished and you'll be able to carry on with your day.' The SlimBodyXpress device causes the formation of what is called a 'transitory pore' in the membrane of a fat cell. Through this pore, fat from the cell is released into the body, where it is safely carried away by the body's own natural cleansing process. Surgical extraction of the fat is not required. 'Because there's no need to break up and suction out the fat cells, as with a traditional liposuction procedure, aftereffects like swelling, bruising, and temporary soreness in the treated areas are eliminated,' says Dr. Ristaino. 'A series of treatments is required over several weeks, but patients are finding that this time commitment is a small sacrifice for the long-term body contouring benefits The Treatment can provide.' At Desert Health & Wellness (www.SlimBodyXpress), Dr. Ron Ristaino and staff offer innovative body contouring techniques. They also perform other popular non-invasive procedures including non-invasive microcurrent facelifts. About SlimBodyXpress SlimBodyXpress is a unique total body system, developed for the medical, health and wellness industry. In a relatively short time, the SlimBodyXpress Non-Invasive System is becoming incredibly sought after and respected not only in spas around the globe, but also in medical offices, salons, and wellness centers.
