PHYSIQ in Highland Park, IL

Infinite possibilities. One PHYSIQ

Even with daily exercise and strict diets, fat can build up in the most unsightly places. If you’re tired of sweating and starving, the answer might just be sculpting! 

With Physiq, Perlis Medspa and Wellness Center can help you build the body you’ve always dreamed of. In just a few sessions, Physiq targets hard-to-reach fat and takes muscle tone to a whole new level.

Using advanced technology to improve your body’s natural beauty, this completely noninvasive option is a painless way to improve many areas throughout your body. With the guidance of the most trusted doctor on the North Shore, we can sculpt your ideal body in just a few sessions.

Before you skip your next workout or cheat on that diet, discover if Physiq is right for you!

What Defines You?

While most sculpting technology either utilizes muscle stimulation or heat, PHYSIQ uses both to trigger maximum fat degeneration with minimal discomfort.

STEP programs use a one-two punch of electrical stimulation and heat to melt stubborn fat in traditionally hard-to-reach areas. We tailor every treatment using PHYSIQ in Highland Park to exceed every patient’s body goals in just a few quick sessions.

To determine the correct contouring for you, we’ll do a deep dive into your health, conditions, and goals in your consultation.

We trust Physiq in Highland Park because of its cutting-edge STEP technology. This unique technique incorporates sequential thermal and electrical pulses in one effective sequence. 

The first part of this sequence utilizes deep tissue heating to break up the cellular structure of subcutaneous fat. By focusing heat from the super luminescent diode matrix (SDM) this treatment works to melt even the most stubborn fat.

In the second part of this sequence, painless electrical pulses rapidly contract and retract muscles. Using electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), Physiq works to retrain your muscles for improved definition.

Toning Muscle 

Similar to the electrical pulses sent by your nervous system during a workout, Physiq’s EMS rapidly contracts muscles thousands of times a minute. As they retract, your muscles will naturally stay more pronounced. Silicone gel pads and comfortable body bands keep every applicator in place throughout your session.

Melting Fat

Physiq works to melt your fat cells more efficiently than any workout can. By focusing the light energy from the SDM, your body transfers that energy into heat and breaks down fat cells. To keep things comfortable, Physiq includes a simultaneous contact cooling system that patients can control throughout their treatment.

All Gain, No Pain

The deep penetration of heat combined with sapphire cooling at the skin’s surface results in a sensation similar to a hot stone massage. As your treatment cycles between heat and EMS, STEP ensures the optimal temperature is reached and maintained throughout the treatment. Our specialists also check in periodically and make adjustments to ensure maximum comfort and results.
