Facebook uses it… Your smartphone uses it… And SOON, 24/7 Health Club will also be using IRIS SCANNING technology for club access! We are super excited for this transition to take place. Unlike a fingerprint scanner, which is difficult to navigate, iris scanning is FAST and SUPER EASY for everyone involved.

As we prepare for the transition to the new system, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Each member’s iris scan will be tied to his/her own PERSONAL email address. That means we need to be sure we have a VALID, UP-TO-DATE email for every member in our system.

We currently DO NOT have emails on file for the majority of the family “add-ons” in our system. We will need to collect this information and get it added ASAP to prevent loss of access to the club.

Additionally, since we have been in business for almost 20 years, we know a lot of our “long-timers” have probably changed emails since they first set up their account and will need to update their email address in our system.

Even if you “think” we have your correct email – provide your information to us again just to be sure. We want to avoid as many potential pitfalls as we can during this process. 

——————————————————————————-

You can update/provide your email via multiple methods:

  1. You can login to your member account (or member app) and update your email address there
  2. You can EMAIL US with the NAME, DATE OF BIRTH and CURRENT EMAIL ADDRESS for each person on your membership. Use the following email addresses:
    1. Huntsville Club Members: [email protected]
    2. Harvest Club Members: [email protected]
  3. You can fill out the update forms we will be placing around the clubs
  4. You can call or stop by the front desk and speak with a team member

——————————————————————————

We will be sending out emails with information on how to enter your iris scan via your smartphone shortly. We will send you a text letting you know WHEN to watch for the email so just keep your eye out for it.

We hope you are as excited about this change as we are. We thank you so much for making this process easier for all involved by updating your account quickly. We do not have a “Go Live” date but anticipate this happening the first of January. We will keep you updated as the process unfolds.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

 

Introduction

Radiofrequency is a form of energy measured in frequency or wavelengths per second on the electromagnetic spectrum. Radiofrequency can produce heat energy, so in radiofrequency facial treatment, it works by creating heat in deep layers of skin to induce new collagen and elastin production. It also encourages cell turnover.

Compared to traditional cosmetic treatment, it has the advantages of fewer side effects and short downtime.  Radiofrequency facial treatment is considered very safe and beneficial; the only common side effect is mild to moderate pain during treatment, which can also be reduced. This technique provides an alternative to facelift and other cosmetic surgeries.

How Does Radiofrequency Facial Work?

Radiofrequency facial treatment works by targeting deep into the tissues of your facial skin with radiofrequency energy waves. RF waves are a form of radiation that releases energy in the form of electromagnetic waves classified as low energy or high energy, depending on the amount of energy released.

This energy provided to the skin generates heat, resulting in new collagen and elastin production. It has been proved that maintaining a temperature over 115 degrees Fahrenheit for over 3 minutes causes the body to release heat-shock proteins, which stimulate the body to create collagen fibers that make the skin look more youthful.

What Are the Benefits of Radiofrequency Facial Treatment?

Radiofrequency facial treatment is a technique having many benefits, including improving your skin tone, making skin tighter and smoother by removing wrinkles, fine lines, toning mild to moderate loose, flabby skin, making it look younger by eliminating crinkles without surgery and downtime compared with other alternative treatments. This treatment’s two most visible benefits are tighter skin and a smoother face with fewer wrinkles.

RF therapy is versatile, so you can also expect an improvement in sun damage. It is suitable for those with photoaged skin; treating dark spots, sagging, and other effects of the sun is notoriously hard to do. Most people think aging is the only culprit behind collagen degradation, but the sun is even more vicious. Therefore, the ability to reverse UV damage is nothing less than revolutionary, and RF technology does precisely this. Following are the various benefits it provides.

Radiofrequency Facial Contouring

As the skin starts aging and becomes dull, the cells on our skin’s surface (the epidermis) won’t renew as quickly as in our youth. The results are dullness, sagging, wrinkles, and textural issues. Radiofrequency facial treatment not only tightens the skin but also restores contours to create toned, firm, youthful-looking skin. This firming action makes RF especially well-suited to the chin, neck, and jawline. It can also be used to tighten sags between the nose and mouth, bags, and wrinkles under and above the eyes, drooping brow lines. In short, it helps in facial contouring by using radiofrequency waves.

Skin Tightening

Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening is an exciting breakthrough for skin tightening, facelift, and wrinkle treatments. It provides an alternative to other cosmetic surgeries, including antiaging treatment. Radiofrequency skin tightening is considered to be very safe and effective. It is an effective treatment with minimal risks and downtime compared with other alternative treatments. It is a non-invasive treatment.

Non-invasive skin treatments are best for those who want to see a mild to moderate improvement in skin tone tightness and appearance. They are perfect for those who are seeing signs of aging on their skin but still want to look young and pause the aging process by using this treatment for a long time.

Gradual Improvements to Your Face

RF treatments help in stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin in the body. With these effects, old and damaged skin is replaced by fresh and healthy skin. These cells are also naturally firmer and tighter, but they don’t develop overnight. Gradual and subtle improvements are seen after the treatment.

Softens Fine Lines

Radiofrequency treatment also softens fine lines that add years to your face and make it look very old. Each subsequent session builds upon the last so that as you move forward in your treatment plan, you’ll look progressively younger. Results are seen within no time after the radiofrequency facial treatment.

Radiofrequency Facial has Long-Lasting Results

Collagen and elastin production in this treatment has its importance. The improvements to your skin will be long-lasting. Some facial treatments only stimulate facial muscles or temporarily plump tissues. At the same time, Radiofrequency triggers the skin’s internal healing processes, and collagen is inherently made to last. Your results can therefore continue for up to two years. Long-lasting youthfulness adds to your face.

Hyaluronic Acid (Ha)

Hyaluronic acid is very important for skincare. It also works in tandem with collagen and elastin, so where those two fibers increase, HA also increases. It means that with Radiofrequency treatments, you can enjoy softer, silkier, and better-moisturized skin. HA molecules naturally attract and bind to water molecules. It’s, therefore, a key component of your skin’s natural moisture barrier, and ramping up levels can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, soothe redness, and help skin look plumper.

It Can Be Completed at Lunch

The average session of radiofrequency skin treatment lasts between 20 and 45 minutes—a protective gel to the skin to facilitate treatment. The handpiece is then moved across your face with deft efficiency. It is an effective treatment with minimal risks and downtime compared with other alternative treatments.

Radiofrequency Facial is Relaxing And Pain-Free

RF is painless, requires no downtime, leaves no surface irregularities, and reinvigorates the skin for a healthy glow. One of the most appealing aspects of RF therapy is its non-invasive and gentle nature. While the energy heats and ultimately tightens tissues, it does so without damaging your skin’s top layer. You don’t need to hide your skin or go home to recover.

Moreover, it has excellent depth control without any energy loss. It directly delivers energy into the targeted area. RF treatment is very relaxing, safe, and pain-free, making it a good alternative for your skin.

Conclusion

Loose skin, wrinkles, fine lines, flabby skin, stretch marks are caused by the natural aging process after a certain age. Still, radiofrequency facial treatment and skin tightening techniques save us from looking too old too early. Radiofrequency has many benefits for the skin, including facial contour, eyebrow and forehead treatment, short recovery time, removal of wrinkles, improved skin elasticity, Tighten and firm tissues, Improved skin’s overall texture and volume.

It is a non-invasive treatment, there’s no downtime, but you should follow the skincare routine suggested by your technician after the treatment. It is very safe and effective for almost all skin types. For more information, call 256-203-2170 or stop by Spa 247.

Don’t let the “red light” of this treatment fool you! Rather than UV light that harms the skin, infrared therapy is a safe, new, and innovative way to help treat pain and inflammation in the body. Its penetrating rays allow the light to target deep layers of the skin, allowing for powerful yet painless pain relief!
  • Potential Cancer Treatment: Studies show that in a lab setting, implementing infrared technology in the activation of nanoparticles forms a highly toxic substance that can be used to combat surrounding cancer cells. This idea is translated into a treatment called photoimmunotherapy, which uses infrared light to activate the rapid and selective killing of cancer cells.
  • Alleviates Muscle Injuries: Infrared therapy improves mitochondria’s role and effectiveness by directly targeting cells. This triggers the growth and repair of new muscle cells and tissues. In other words, infrared light can accelerate the body’s repair process after a muscle injury.
  • Helps Pain & Inflammation: Infrared therapy penetrates through the layers of the skin, deep down to muscles, joints, and bones. This therapy also enhances and improves circulation in the skin and the body. Additionally, it works to bring oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues, promoting healing in such areas.
  • Helps Detoxify the Body: Treatments, such as an infrared sauna, allow the body’s core temperature to increase and help promote detoxification in the body at the cellular level. Detoxification is vital in supporting the body’s immune system and promotes better digestion.
  • Promotes Immune Health: Emphasis on immune health is especially important during our current pandemic. During infrared therapy, the energy cells produce helps regulate the thyroid and positively affects their immune cells . Also, it helps stimulate the lymphatic system and increases the form of energy that cells use, known as ATP, for cells to replicate faster and fight infections better.
Infrared therapy provides many benefits, with a painless approach and side effects being little to none.
  • Improves Skin Health and Appearance: As our bodies absorb natural wavelengths of red and infrared light, the mitochondria in our cells can produce energy more efficiently. This energy allows your fibroblast cells to create more natural collagen, making your skin appear healthier and younger-looking.
  • Improves Cardiovascular Health: In combination with infrared light, nitric oxide is a vital, cell-signaling molecule that helps relax arteries, battles free radicals to reduce oxidative stress, prevents platelet clumping in blood vessels, and regulates blood pressure. This therapy enhances blood circulation to deliver vital nutrients and oxygen throughout the body.
  • Promotes Better Sleep: Exposure to blue light at your normal bedtime can impact your body’s natural circadian rhythm, which works to regulate hormone levels, appetite, and metabolism. However, scientific evidence shows that infrared therapy helps the body naturally produce more melatonin, and study participants have even reported better quality sleep for an increased number of hours.
  • Reduces Stress: In a study testing the effects on Infrared light on Type 2 Diabetic patients, researchers saw a reduction in their cortisol levels, suggesting that this light therapy has benefits in regulating the body’s sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system of the autonomic nervous system), which can help combat everyday stress. It also promotes relaxation for those with anxiety and/or panic disorders.
  • Promotes Hair Growth: Infrared light therapy helps to stimulate the dermal papilla cells, which play a big role in regulating hair cycling and growth. Additionally, Infrared therapy delivers safe, concentrated wavelengths of natural light to your skin. These infrared wavelengths of light stimulate the mitochondria in your cells, similar to natural sunlight, reducing oxidative stress, increasing circulation, and providing more energy for hair follicles to grow at an increased rate.
