Assuage Luxury Spa is hosting a special event February 19 for its new SculpSure® laser that promises to dissolve fat in the abdomen, flanks and other body parts in just 25 minutes. Assuage Luxury Spa in Naples is the only medical spa in the region to receive the new technology.
“We’re excited to offer this new technology and to have a special presentation by a representative of the manufacturer, Cynosure, here for the event,” said Assuage Luxury Spa Owner Tehjan Prendiville.
Dr. Stephen Prendiville, facial plastic surgeon and medical director of Assuage Luxury Spa, also will make a special presentation during the event as well as a live demonstration.
The SculpSure event will be from 3 p.m.to 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 19, at the Naples spa at 1201 Piper Boulevard, Unit 1, at the corner of Immokalee and Airport Pulling Roads. Space is limited and reservations are required by calling 239-333-1450. Special pricing will be available for those who attend the demonstration.
SculpSure™ is approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and is the world’s first non-invasive fat-melting device to treat stubborn fat in just 25 minutes. The versatile, hands-free device features a flexible applicator system using a 1060 nm laser to treat multiple areas of the body without downtime or surgery.
“SculpSure represents an entirely new approach to non-invasive fat removal, one that is safe and highly effective, and does so in significantly less time than other current treatments,” said Dr. Stephen Prendiville. “SculpSure has the added bonus of being less expensive than other current treatments that use cool technology.”
Clinical data from 100 patients treated with SculpSure in studies at two U.S. sites showed significant reduction in fat layer thickness six and 12 weeks after treatment, according to abstracts presented at the 2015 American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery Annual Conference. SculpSure is intended for individuals with a body mass index of 30 or less.
Assuage Luxury Spa is one of only 10 sites in Florida and the only one in Southwest Florida to offer SculpSure. The new medical spa opened its doors in Naples in November and is the second location for Assuage, which also has a location in Fort Myers on Cypress Lake Drive.
“Assuage,” which means to soothe or satisfy, was created by Tehjan Prendiville, a registered nurse and the wife of Dr. Prendiville.
Tehjan Prendiville has worked in the field of mental health for 26 years and has traveled the world with a special interest in cultural healing. Assuage Spa was created to incorporate these age-old holistic approaches acquired on her travels.
“Our mission is to enhance and enrich overall health by taking a holistic approach to the entire individual, including mind, body and spirit,” she said. “Assuage brings a global fusion of hand-selected treatments from around the world to Southwest Florida.”
Ancient practices and exotic techniques are complimented by contemporary equipment and state-of-the-art technology, such as SculpSure. All services are accompanied by complimentary use of the spa’s steam showers and sauna.
“I have designed the Naples spa to set the stage for pleasure with a distinct Moroccan flair, similar to my Fort Myers spa.
Guests will feel the difference the moment they enter Assuage,” said Tehjan Prendiville. “The interior design is truly a different and totally relaxing spa experience.”
