Cartessa Aesthetics - The Fastest Growing Laser Company


PHYSIQ can help take your body to the next level.  PHYSIQ uses a Sequential Thermal & Electrical Pulse (STEP) to target muscle and fat simultaneously.

PHYSIQ is the latest advancement in body contouring treatments, designed and built in Florence, Italy by DEKA, a global leader in aesthetic technology.  We utilize this technology for the treatment of fat reduction and muscle stimulation – simultaneously during the same treatment.

How does PHYSIQ work?
The PHYSIQ has 4 applicators containing Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) and Super-Luminscent Diode Matrix (SDM) technology with the optimal wavelength for absorption into body fat. This allows for multiple areas to be treated simultaneously for faster treatments.  PHYSIQ can target stubborn areas without surgery and no downtime.

PHYSIQ is the only device with STEP technology. Results are maximized by targeting fat and muscle simultaneously with varying energy modalities within the same treatment time.

How is PHYSIQ performed?
The provider will assess and prepare the area to be treated, apply the applicators to the skin with a gel pad and comfortable elastic band to hold them in place, then adjust the settings on the device to begin treatment. The patient is left to relax in the room during treatment (approx. 15-30 minutes depending on the area(s) treated.)

What areas can be treated with PHYSIQ?
PHYSIQ can be used to treat the abdomen, legs, arms, buttocks, hips, back, and flanks.

What do patients feel during PHYSIQ treatment?
The patient should feel warm but comfortable during treatment. During treatment, you may feel warmth at the applicator site. PHYSIQ’s energy delivery and unique patient control features ensure optimal comfort. The SDM technology is used to elevate the tissue temperature to achieve the desired result.  The sapphire crystal plate in contact with the skin cools the surface, creates comfort, and protects the skin. The EMS will target muscle to flex and tone the desired areas.

What is the recovery period?
PHYSIQ is a NO DOWNTIME procedure, which means patients can immediately go about their day’s activities following treatment. We only suggest staying hydrated and avoiding extreme temperatures (hot tubs, saunas, cryotherapy, etc.) for 2-3 days post each treatment.

When will results be noticed?
Although results may be noticed after only the first treatment, the PHYSIQ protocol is administered in a series of 5 treatments.  The PHYSIQ protocol is 5 sessions per area, 1 treatment every 2 weeks.

Is PHYSIQ safe for all skin types?

Who is the ideal candidate?
PHYSIQ is ideal for patients with a normal and healthy body fat percentage that have localized, stubborn areas resistant to diet and exercise.

Who should NOT consider PHYSIQ?
PHYSIQ should not be considered if you are pregnant or nursing. Recent sun exposure, especially with tanned skin or sunburn, should be avoided until skin tone returns to normal.  Other contraindications for PHYSIQ treatment include pacemakers and other implanted technology, epilepsy, cancer, phlebitis. Other health concerns may be reviewed at the consultation.
