Post Surgery Rapid Recovery


Rapid Recovery is the perfect complement to cosmetic surgery. Utilizing acupuncture, microcurrent, ultrasound, LED (light emitting diode) therapy, Rapid Recovery can accelerate the healing process and reduce ‘down time’ by almost half. Rapid Recovery helps to eliminate bruising, facial swelling, and incision tightness, while accelerating the recuperation of post surgical fatigue from anesthesia. It is soothing and relaxing and guaranteed to improve the comfort of your recovery process. Results can be immediately visible.


Acupuncture helps your body to reestablish inner health in order to look and feel your best. It improves circulation and lymphatic flow. Preoperatively it prepares the body by supporting the immune system and overall health and the face by improving the integrity of muscles and skin cells. Post operatively it diminishes facial swelling, tightness around incisions, and bruising, lightens scarring around incisions, and reduces fatigue from anesthesia. Each session is personalized toward your recovery needs.

  • Stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage
  • Eliminates bruising
  • Reduces incision tightness
  • Lightens incision scarring
  • Diminishes fatigue from anesthesia
  • Improves internal body health and vitality
  • Provides physical and emotional wellness


Micro-current is a subsensory vibration that works with your body’s own electrical energy system. In a Rapid Recoverytreatment it is used to repair and restore healthy facial muscle and skin tone. It can improve the production of healthy collagen and elastin, soften tight incisions, and reduce facial swelling. It can be tailored to each stage of recovery.

  • Repairs and restores muscle integrity
  • Improves the health of muscle and skin cells
  • Increases the natural production of collagen and elastin
  • Improves the production of cell energy
  • Stimulates circulation and lymphatic drainage


Ultrasound is a non-auditory vibration that improves circulation, stimulates cell renewal, improved product penetration, and reduces the appearance of skin discoloration. It immediately reduces facial swelling and tightness around surgical incisions. The vibration of ultrasound gently removes dead surface cells. The warmth created by the vibration penetrates healing products through the skin’s surface up to 1500 times deeper than simply applying them with your hands. Rapid Recovery is safe, soothing, and ideal for rapid surgical recovery.

  • Improves circulation
  • Increases lymphatic drainage
  • Improves skin cell nutrient absorption
  • Gently exfoliates unwanted surface skin
  • Stimulates healthy skin cell renewal
  • Hydrates and nourishes deeper skin layers


LED (Light Emitting Diode) Therapy
The benefits of light therapy have been well documented over the past 20-30 years. Red Light is used by NASA to increase wound healing and grow fresh food in space. It increases the production of healthy proteins such as collagen and elastin, improves circulation and lymphatic flow and stimulates cell metabolism. Blue light reduces redness, heals wounds, and calms irritated skin. It is used by dermatologists as a powerful antiseptic. Recent studies indicate that green light reduces sun spots and evens skin tone while yellow light eliminates congestion and improves lymphatic flow.

  • Boosts skin cell activity
  • Reduces swelling and inflammation
  • Stimulates healthy collagen and elastin production
  • Improves sun damage and reduces skin discoloration
  • Kills bacteria and potential infection
  • Gives skin a healthy, radiant, and dewy appearance
