Luzern is an unparalleled line of skin care formulated with Bio-Suisse organic anti-aging extracts. This oxygen skin care line delivers results, quickly, using Swiss Alpine plants found at the highest possible altitudes which have been subjected to strong temperature fluctuations and high UV radiation.

Just like plants, our skin and other body tissues can absorb light and convert it into energy. LightStim LED light therapy delivers light energy in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light energy to the skin. Each LightStim product uses different wavelengths, or colors, of light. When this beneficial light is applied directly to the skin it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, temporarily increase blood circulation, and treat mild to moderate Acne. The Spa also offers LED LightStim MultiWave Therapy for Anti-Aging and LED LightStim MultiWave Therapy for Pain Management.

It is simply not possible to keep up with everyday cell damage. NanoVi™ helps, non-invasively and without chemicals, and helps repair everyday cell damage caused by what you eat, what you breathe, what you are exposed to, and oxidative stress. Eng3’s patented NanoVi™ technology produces the same biological signal your body makes to repair cell damage brought on by free radicals (also known as reactive oxygen species or ROS).

As with all great technology, there are advancements and the Zerona Z6 is just that. Zerona technology maximizes coverage and offers a better overall treatment. It is the first an only non-invasive laser FDA (U.S. Food & Drug Administration) cleared for over-the-counter use. It is also FDA market-cleared for overall body circumference reduction and produces the highest result rate of any other fat loss laser on the market.
